Crafty Cardmakers and More Triple B Challenge


Hi, It's time for a new challenge at Craft Cardmakers and More and the challenge this time is 'Triple B'. You have to chose three of the five following things to include on your project.
                               Butterflies
                               Blue
                               Birthday
                               Banners
                               Buttons
Please pop on over to the Crafty Cardmakers and More blog to see the beautiful inspiration that the rest of the Design Team have created and to check out the prize, which is a fab set of stamps.

For this challenge I have chosen to use Butterflies, Birthday and Banners. I have used the 'Butterflies' stamp set from Hobby Art and stamped a selection of butterflies, masking each one after I had stamped it. I coloured the butterflies with Copic markers and a white gel pen. I then added some glitter to the butterflies wings and some glossy accents to the three top most butterflies. I then coloured the background with a selection of green Copic Markers before again masking the butterflies and stamping a fern stamp with 'Peeled Paint' Distress Ink. The text stamp is from Woodware and has been stamped onto a hand cut banner. I have used Core'dinations card stock for the layering. The finished card is 6 x 6 inches.

Hope you like my interpretation of the 'Triple B' challenge and thanks for visiting.

Oriental Tag


Hello, today I have a tag to share with you that I have made using the 'Chinese Lantern' clear stamp set from Chocolate Baroque. I have stamped the large lantern with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured with it with Copic markers and a coat of Glossy Accents. The smaller lanterns have been stamped with black Archival ink onto Glassine  and coloured again with Copic's. The background was made by making a mask from copy paper and inking the mountains with various colours of Distress Ink. I then applied some Inka-Gold Metal Gloss Paint with a sponge to create the mist and waterfall. I used a black micron pen to outline the mountains. I finished the background by stamping the floral element from the 'Chines Lantern' stamp set and painting it with Distress Ink. The ribbon, lace, pearls and metal coin are from my stash.

Dog And Tulips


Hi, today I have a card to show you that I have made using a stamp from Wild Rose Studio called 'Dog and Tulips'. I have stamped the image with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers and a white gel pen for the highlights. I have added some 'Broken China' Distress Ink around the edge of the image before adding some 'Pearl Moon' Gilding wax from Creative Expressions. The background papers are from Joy Crafts and the bottom layer has been embossed with a floral embossing folder from Creative Expressions. I then sanded the colour from the paper and added some more 'Pearl Moon' gilding wax. I have used Kraft Card and White Card Stock for the layering. The flower was made using a die from Pinflair and the leave were cut using a die from Crafts- Too. The gems on sticks and purple flower embellishments are from my stash and the sentiment is from an Inky-Doodles stamp set. I have finished the card with some Purple gems and Stickles Glitter Glue. The card measures 6 x 6 inches. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Crafty Cardmakers And More Ribbons/Lace and Pearls Challenge


Hello, today I have a card to show you that I have made for my first challenge as part of the Crafty Cardmakers and More Design Team. I am really excited to be part of their team. 

It's a gloomy, foggy day where I am today, so sorry for the 'Not So Great' Photo. For this card I have used an image from the Elizabeth Bell Ready To Colour Art Pad from Hobby House and coloured the image with Copic Markers and a white gel pen. I have added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to the water on the image. The backing papers are from My Minds Eye's 'Totally Girl' paper pad and I have used some Kraft card and white card stock for the layering. I have used dies from 'Crafts- Too' for the flowers and the shape of the image. I have also used the 'Happy Birthday' tag from K and Co. I have used some pink organza ribbon, lace and Pearls to finish. 

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
