Sketch N Stash Challenge 71

I made a card for Sketch N Stash challenge71 yesterday then realised I can't add it to my blog yet as it's for someones Birthday next week so I've made another one today. The image is my new stamp Cricket Boy by Wild Rose Studio coloured with Promarkers. The backing papers are Wild Rose Studio too. The buttons are Papermania but I had to raid my wardrobe to find some brown ribbon to thread through them!

Christmas Cuddles

This is for the Cutie Pie Challenge which is a sketch. I've used the Wild Rose Studio stamp Christmas Cuddles coloured with Promarkers with glitter added to the hats. I was adamant that I wouldn't buy any Christmas stamps this year but when I saw this I just had to have it.

Less Is More Week 34

The Less Is More challenge this week is a sketch and it's a great one - so simple but the examples shown are very effective. For my card I've used Dusty Concord to make a background using my ink dusters. The foliage stamps are from Stampin Up's Pocket Silhouettes set and the cat image is by Inkylicious. The sentiment is from a Wild Rose Studio set. Everything is stamped with Dusty Concord. Very simple.

Less Is More Week 33 - Anything Goes Take 2

My second card towards the attempt to get 1000 entries for this weeks Less Is More challenge. Those girls are going to be super busy this week.

For this card I've used the Stampin Up Spot On Wheel with a Big and Juicy Waterfall pad. This wheel is retiring at the end of the month. I've embossed a couple of lines above and below the spots. The circle sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set - Circle of Freindship. I'm also entering this in the Crafters Reuinited Inspirational Challenge this month which is Circles and Stripes

Less Is More Week 33 - Anything Goes

The girls at Less Is More have set a challenge to try and get 1000 entries for this weeks challenge. This is my first attempt. I've used the tree from Stampin Up's Contempo Christmas set to make the snowflake/star inked with a Brilliance Twilight pad. It's layered onto co-ordinating cardstock. The sentiment is from a set by Paula Pascaul.

Less Is More Week 32 - Seeing Double take 2

I was sorting digi images on my laptop today and came across a beautiful one that I thought would fit the Seeing Double theme for this weeks Less Is More challenge. I feel a bit of a cheat as the sentiment and border are also computer generated but I like the outcome. I placed the eyes and sentiment but felt it needed something more so added a black square around it which I then changed to blue to match the eyes. Originally I was going to have another black square around it but when I copied and pasted the blue square it offset and it looked good so I did it again and this is the result.

Sketch N Stash 70

This is my entry for Sketch N Stash Challenge 70 which is Free Choice of any of the previous sketches. I've chosen the sketch from challenge 42 as I've made a male card and didn't want it too fussy

It's a very simple card using retired Stampin Up set Computer Quips. This is a great set for men's cards and I was luck enough to get it second hand. Very light colouring with grey Promarkers and the papers are by 
Wild Rose Studio. I've had these papers for ages and they just go on and on

Less Is More Week 32 - One Layer Card - Seeing Double

I wasn't supposed to be buying ANY Christmas stash this year but when I saw this Wild Rose Studio stamp I just had to have it. Hopefully it just about fits with the Seeing Double theme over at Less Is More this week.

I've stamped it with London Fog memento ink and coloured with promarkers. I've stamped the edge with a snowflake stamp.

Less Is More Week 31 - Metallic - Take 2

My second entry for this weeks Less Is More is a little more metallic than my first one. The cogs are a spellbinders die cut from mirri card. The card was too bright so I've added some alcohol inks to tone it down. I've done the same for the crown on the greeting which is computer generated. The sentiment is matted onto more inked mirri card but I couldn't get it to show.

Cards for My Niece and Nephew

I can't believe I've done it again this year. My niece's Birthday is on 5th September and my nephew's is 15th. Last year I sent Matthew's card to get there on 5th and Rebecca's to get there on 15th. And I've done the same this year! What a daft auntie. At least this year I've been able to change the greeting and insert on Rebecca's card.

For Mathew's card I've used a Digi Stamp Boutique image coloured with promarkes with Printavle Heaven backing paper. Mathew has recently left home and is getting into cooking and this is the most suitable image I had. The sentiment is computer generated.

For Rebecca's card I've used a Joanna Sheen image but I can't remember which CD. The papers are from Pink Petticoat. Becky breeds rabbits (among other things) so I thought this image would suit.

Less Is More Week 31 - Metallic

Week 31 at Less Is More and the theme is colour and the great girls have chosen Metallic. I wanted to make this a girlie card so I've used pinks and greens. The images and sentiment are all rub-ons from a kit I got ages ago. The sentiment was covered in metallic pink foil and the flowers pink and green glitter which is sort of metallic too :)
