Christmas Snowman

I used this Digital Image from Squigglefly to create this snowman card using a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge. It was quite fun to do, and I am sure I will be making more cards using both the digital stamp and sketch. Apart from the Digital Stamp, all other supplies are from Stampin Up, mostly retired stock that I wanted to use up before buying any more.

Bring in the Medics

I know, your probably thinking, oh not another one of these cards, but seriously, I had to give it a go. These owls are sooo cute. I have used all stampin up card including Real Red, Marina Mist, Whisper White and Crumb Cake. Scraps of black. I used the top note die to place the owls on and some whisper white ribbon to finish off the card. I am going to submit this card for the Paper Players Challenge. All that was required for this challenge is either an animal or a plant.

A little closer view of the owls. These are everywhere on the Internet, but I fell in love with the one that Teneale Williams made. She is really awesome with her designs.

Home Sweet Home - Scene it

Here is my submission for the Bugaboo Challenge for this week. The challenge is to create a scene using digital stamps. I have used three different stamps from the A Kids View range from Bugaboo Stamps and used my Mac to combine them to create this scene. I have used Stampin Up real red, chocolate chip, whisper white and old olive paper. I used the Neighbourhood roller wheel to create the background papers, stamping with the same colour ink as the card. I have used chocolate chip ribbon, and designer buttons. There is a little bit of faux stitching thrown in for good measure. I have also used a 'Deconstructed Sketch' by Jen. The link is on the left hand side of this blog.

Here is a closer image of the coloured scene. I have used my Copics for the colouring and shadowing.

Even more Trees

So here is the final Lovely as a Tree card I have made. I have used the same card stock and ink pads for this card as I have the other two. I am really impressed with the vintage look of these cards, as it is usually not my style. Well, I guess everyone can change can't they.

More Lovely as a Tree

I made this card for the inkspirations Challenge for this week. This week was a sketch. I have used the Lovely as a tree stamp set, Curly cute stamp set, Always Artichoke card and designer paper, Chocolate Chip card, Always Artichoke ribbon, Chocolate Chip button and my pastels for colouring.

Lovely as a Tree

Wow, I can't believe I have not blogged for so long. I have been making cards, but just forgetting to put them on my blog. So here are the latest cards I have made.

The inspiration for this card came from the very talented Teneale Williams. You must check out her blog, she is amazing. I love all of her work. teneale williams click here and i should take you straight to her site. I have used the Lovely as a Tree stamp, Curly Cute Stamp, Always Artichoke card and designer papers, En Francis background stamp, Very Vanilla card, Chocolate Chip card, ribbon and button, Vintage Brads and my pastels for the colouring of the tree. I then curled some of the corners to give the card a little aged feel. I really like the way this one turned out. Hope you like it.
