Gratitude @ I Love Promarkers

Hi there,

We have a new challenge starting for you today at I Love Promarkers and the optional theme is 'Thank you'. The sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo and I have used one of their images to make this card.

I stamped over some white card with a butterfly stamp (Dovecraft - Birds and the Bees stamp set) and using versamark ink. I then heat embossed with Heat It Up clear embossing powder before blending distress inks over the whole background (marmaid lagoon, shaded lilac, evergreen bough, spun sugar and squeezed lemonade). I coloured the image with promarkers (Warm Grey 1, Lemon, Sky Blue, Pastel Pink, Cool Grey 5, Caramel, Amethyst, Yellow, Soft Green, Pastel Yellow, Cerise, Bluebell and Sandstone) and fussy cut it out. I layered this on my homemamde patterned background and matted onto pearl cardstock and added some pearls to one side. I die-cut the edge of a KRAFT card blank using an edging die that was free with a magazine. I added a piece of the patterned card on the inside flap behind this border, after matting onto the white pearl card. I layered the image panel onto the card front and then added a sentiment, matted onto the white pearl card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
DigiDoodleStudio #30 Things with wings
TheLibraryChallenge #64 Minitaure Garden Grower
SimonSaysWednesday - Use your favourite tool (my heat gun for heat embossing, and my blending pads)

Night garden

Hi guys,

I have a little postcard to share with you today. I am late uploading it and so I have actually missed the challenge it was created for - but I thought I would still share!!

I used a dotty patterned paper from my scrap box. The flowers are cut from a mini paper pad I got from The Range (3x3"). I just fussy cut them from the paper and stuck them on at random to look like a nighttime garden. I then simply added a sentiment topper.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
polkadoodles wk31 Black and White with a spot of colour
Thelibrarychallenge #64 Miniature garden grower
SOS #425 Black and white
dragonflydreams - Anything Goes

I thought I would leave you with a couple of photos of my babies :D

Elephants @ MAWTT

Hi everybody,

As it is the first of the month we have a new challenge for you over at Moving Along With The Times - with the theme being Elephants.

I really had to dig deep in my stash for this one, but I found this little guy on some patterned papers, as a topper, and decided to use him.

I used a glitter card in pink for the background and simply added the topper onto this once I had trimmed it from the sheet. I took a chipboard flower and applied VersaMark ink and then Heat It Up silver embossing powder. I heat embossed and added this to the base. Finally I took a chipboard sentiment and painted it with Blue gilding paste.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craftycalendar - Anything Goes
notjustcards - Anything Goes
SimonsaysWednesday - Anything Goes
CatchtheBug - Anything Goes

Scandi Christmas

Hi guys,

I have a One Layer CAS Christmas card to share with you today. I wanted to make one more card using my vine border embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.

I inked the embossing folder using a cheap red ink pad (no name on it at all). I inked the folder on the debossed side so when I ran it through the Big Shot the raised areas would remain white. I then used the same red ink to stamp a reindeer, from a free stamp set, onto the remaining white space.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
ikesworld #134 S for show us Xmas
christmascraftcreations - Christmas characters
TheCardConcept #138b Christmas in July
jinglebelles - photo inspiration (reindeer and greenery on left hand edge)
Simplylessismore #424 OLC Christmas in July

And I also thought I would share with you a video of Chucky being a pain and making me look like an idiot :D
