Sketch Saturday #28

sketch-saturday-28Good morning folks!

It’s a beautiful crisp morning here on the south coast… but no snow for us again.  Here’s my DT card for the Sketch Saturday challenge which is being hosted this week by the lovely Mariska.  Mariska not only provided the wonderful sketch but also the funky stamped image of Lily with Snowman that I could play with. Thank you Hunni!  You too could be playing with an abundance of Lily and Billy stamps as there are some to be won for this weeks challenge.  more about that later.  Don’t forget to check out all the other DT cards… in the words of Craig Revel-Horwood they are A-ma-zing!sketch-saturday-28-a

For my card this week I have used DCWV papers, snowflake cardstock stickers and sentiment . My Cuttlebug, Nestabilities (oval & scalloped oval), snowflake embossing folder. I also used some pink glitter board and ribbon from my stash.  As mentioned above Mariska sent me the image and I coloured it using my Prisma’s, sansodor and paperstumps.  This time for the fur trim on Lily’s clothing I used white glitter flocking, I’m afraid you can’t really see it very well in the photo’s but it looks fab in real life… honest ;o) 

Here are the stamps that have been kindly donated by Melissa,  the owner of Pink Cat Studio

Good luck with the challenge and have a great weekend.

Pollycraft Monday Challenge

poppicraftsHi folks!

Here’s my entry to the Pollycrafts Monday Challenge.  I learn’t about this challenge and DT call over on Ria’sblog (If you want inspiration drop by her blog, it’s crammed full of beauties). 

 I have combined the sketch and use of free download papers as I would like to be considered for the DT. My printer ran out of ink, but I managed to print the papers I wanted…phew!

The sketch has been provided by Paula (from Pollycrafts).  The DP are a free download from the blog.  I have also used green microflute card.  The character is one of Pollycrafts beautiful designs.  I used Prismas and sansodor to colour as well as a touch of pearlidoodles.  poppicraft-aThe stamp I used on the panel the character is matted onto if from my collection, Hmmm… think it’s a Basic Grey one but not 100% sure.  I made the flowers with punches, wire and pearlidoodles.  The sentiment is K&Co and sheer ribbon is from my ribbon mountain.

I have enjoyed making this card.  Thanks for looking.  Any comments would be greatfully received.

Sketch Saturday #27 sponsored by Whiff of Joy!

sketch-saturday-27-aHi folks!

It’s the weekend, Yay!, and Sketch Saturday time again.  Another great sketch created by the talented Jo.  This week there is a super prize up for grabs, but more about that later.

For my card I used the BG Wassail papers.  Cuttlebug, embossing folder, square nestabilities, CB corner die and The Go Kreate Amsterdam alphabet.  This alphabet set is great because it comes with these cute little tag shapes that are just the perfect size to mount the die cut letters.sketch-saturday-27-b

The character is my very own ‘Daisy’ design, available at The Craft Barn.  I have chopped her straw hat off and given her a more Christmassy one.  For her fur trims I have used a snow writer and sprinkled a bit of glitter on top while it was still wet.  The bows are all hand tied, for the ones in her hair I cut the ribbon in half first.  Daisy has been coloured in using Prismas and Sansodor.

The other girls on SS DT have come up with some amazing designs for this sketch.  Check out their blogs for some amazing inspiration.  For your chance to win the beautiful new release Elisabeth Bell design ‘Herb with bird’ stamp, join in with the fun on Sketch Saturday!


Have fun!! Hugs,  Sandra xx
