Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #5

Hello folks!

Here’s my entry for this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.  Jill has provided a fab sketch and the twist to the challenge is that only the colours pink, brown and white are to be used.  Such a pretty colour combination, I  had lots of fun creating this card.

The papers and cardstock are all DCWV.  The circles cut using my cuttlebug and Nestabilities.  They were then embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders; Divine Swirls and Swiss Dots. The scalloped ribbon is from my stash.  Isn’t she just the cutest character?  She’s a Hanglar and Stanglar stamp.  I coloured her in using Prisma pencils, Sansodor and paper stumps.  She has been cut out and adhered to the card using glue gel to add extra dimension.  I added the hand tied ribbon bow as a finishing touch.

I would just like to add my special thanks to all of you who take time to leave comments.  I really do appreciate it.

Take care and keep crafting!!

Taking a Blog-holibob

Hi folks!!

Just popped on to say that I’ll be taking a blog holibob for a couple of weeks.  Don’t worry… I’ll still be crafting the nights away, just won’t be posting as I have a couple of events to concentrate on.  The first being on Saturday.  I’m teaching at the Craft Barn in Lingfield. Yay!!! Can’t wait … am so excited.  If you can make it you are more than welcome to book on to the classes. It would be lovely to meet you.  In the morning we’re making exploding boxes and in the afternoon a book in box. Both using Kadoodle stamps to decorate (of course). I’ll post some piccies next week.

Then on 13th and 14th September it’s the Craft Extravaganza at The Craft Barn.  Check out the website for lots more information and the list of fabulous demonstrators.  Which means I’ll have plenty to share with you all after Extravaganza weekend.

Take care and keep crafting!

Sketch Saturday’s DT Call

Hi Folks!

Jo over on Sketch Saturday has made a DT call.  The requirements are to follow the sketch, make two cards and make one of them a Christmas card.  I had so much fun making these cards.  For the first one I have used my new Kadoodle design ‘Little Leo’  He is one of the Zodiac signs, which I have coloured using my prismacolor pencils, sansodor and paper stumps. He has been cut out and adhered to the next layers (nestability rectangle and glitter board scallop rectangle) with glue gel to add height.  The patterned paper is from K&Company.  I have threaded ribbon (with great difficulty!) through the faux buttons and used stickers for the sentiments.  I didn’t stick these straight down but again used glue gel and adhered them to banners I had cut. I cut the scalloped boarders with fancy edge scissors.


For my second card I used Daisy, another one of my drawing for the Kadoodle range.  This time I chopped off her straw hat (cruel I know…) and gave her a much warmer fur one (well, I didn’t want her catching a cold!)  I coloured her as I did Little Leo but I used ‘snow writer’ with a touch of glitter sprinkled on for the fur trim on her hat and coat.  I have also added tiny ribbon bows to her hair.  The backing paper is from the Crafters Companion Christmas CD rom.  these were what was left over from a previous project (see below) I love it when that happens. The white strip of card has been embossed using the Cuttlebug and snowflake embossing folder.  I also inked the edges with blue ink.  The scalloped layer is white glitter board and the layer on to of that is one of the card inserts from the CD rom that I resized to fit and printed straight onto cardstock.  The sentiments are Hot off The Press.  I have taken a close up of Daisy to try and show a little more detail.

Take care and Keep Crafting!
