Pan Pastel Giveaway

I do love my Pan Pastels but only have a few colours and I was really pleased to find the Pan Pastels blog for some great inspiration. Even better they have some candy up for grabs which is the complete set of colours and tools.

Doesn't it look lush? It would look even better on my desk :)

La Pashe Wacky Wheelz

A very quick card as I nearly forgot my cousins birthday. This image is from The Big One CD by La Pashe as is the backing paper and sentiment. I've added a strip of card embossed in the Cuttlebug and highlighted a few bits of it with silver foil. I've used the current sketch at Cards For Men.

So Spooky (but cute too)

I wasn't going to enter the So Spooky challenge at My Mums Craft Shop this week as I don't have much Halloween type stash but low and behold the postman delivered this little cutie this morning - my prize from the wonderful Kitty after the Halloween themed week - thanks so much Kitty. He's called Vampy Hansel by C.C. Designs. Not quite Spooky as I think he's just too cute

So I got my Promarkers out and some backing paper by Polka Doodles and came up with this. I've followed the current Sketch N Stash layout and used the only other appropriate stamp I have in the top corner and added some ribbon and gems from my stash and hey presto. I'm also entering it into the Cutie Pie challenge which is Halloween.

My Mums Craft Shop Sketch

Just in time for this weeks challenge at My Mums Craft Shop which is the following sketch

The image I've used is DIY Legend by Wild Rose Studio. This is great for a quick card as no colouring required. The papers Man About Town again by Wild Rose Studio. I just love these papers and bought another pack when Kitty had a sale on a couple of weeks ago. The tools are Die-namics charms but they work really well with the image. The sentiment is by Craftwork cards and the piece of card across the middle is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. All in all a very quick card

Autumn Breeze at Joanna Sheen

When I saw the theme on the Joanna Sheen challenge blog, I had just been sorting my Inkylicious stamps into DVD boxes and remembered this sentiment stamp. So I've stamped that with Vintage Sepia Versafine and embossed it then coloured the card with Pan Pastels. The rest of the stamps used come from a set called Autumn Harvest by The Paper Company Studio. I've had this set for years and it always comes out at this time of year. I just wish I knew of a stockist in the UK.. So a very simple card but I do love these colours. I've added some gilding flakes to the leaves at the top and a little at the bottom but it doesn't really show in the picture

Fallin' For You

This is my card for the Little Red Wagon Challenge and hopefully I'll be just in time. I've used  free digital stamp by Sliekje - she has some really cute freebies and this is one from last year. I've coloured it with Promarkers and cut with a Nellie Snellen fancy die but I've used leaves from Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings die to put in the holes. The paper was randomly coloured with Pan Pastels before putting through the Cuttlebug. Th acorns are from the same die and covered with glossy accents. The papers are from the Woodland Folk pack by DoCrafts. The layout is from the current Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge although I'm not sure if digi images count. I'm also entering this in Docerela challenge which is an inspiration picture of gorgeous autumnal leaves.

Darkroom Door is one of my favourite makes of stamps and I was lucky enough to get a couple of sets in the sale at My Mum's Craft Shop in Poundbury. So when the theme of Tickets came up on the My Mum's Craft Shop blog it was the perfect opportunity to get them out. I've used the Tour Eiffel set and stamped the images in Majestic Blue Versafine and edged them with Pan Pastels.The background paper is from the Wellington paper stack by DoCrafts and although I'm not keen on the Wellington image, these papers are fab. The ticket Sentiment is from the Sugarplum Daisy CD by Polka Doodles and I've added a ribbon from my stash.

Christmas Cuddles

I've made this card for the Anything Goes challenge which is animals. The image is Christmas Cuddles by Wild Rose Studio and is coloured with Promarkers with glitter added to their hats. I think this is such a cute image and will be using it a lot again this year. The background has white snowflakes cut with a Cuttlebug die and the blue is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I've cut some more snowflakes from a clear glitter sticky sheet and also cut the mat for the sentiment from it and although some of it looks cream, it is actually white.

Sunday Sketch & Stamp

Today is the first time in ages that I've actually wanted to make a card.. I'm not over the moon with the result but at least it's a start. I've followed the sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp

The image is one of the Vintage Ladies by Marianne Designs. I'm ashamed to say I got this set when I went to Netherlands in March and this is the first time out of the packet. The papers are by Prima from a pad called Botanicals which was free with a magazine a little while ago. The greetings are from a Personal Impressions set cut with Stampin Up punches and I've added a few gems and flowers to finish

Sketch N Stash 97

I've really not been making many cards for the last month and most of the ones I have made I missed the challenges they were inspired from. The same nearly went for this card but I've just got it on in time. This was made for a friends Birthday and hopefully she has received it by now so I can post it.

The image is a pre-coloured image by Wee Stamps produced by the Hobby House as die cut toppers. You can get them at My Mums Craft Shop in Poundbury which is a great shop to visit and the views from the front of the shop are spectacular. I've used the sketch at Sketch N Stash shown below

The papers are by Dovecraft from their Garden Party range and I used my new Nellie Snellen dies with the diasy shapes cut out of matching paper. The flowers are from Marianne's English Rose die again cut from matching papers. It's finished with a Craftwork Cards greeting and some gems.

I really need to have a clearout in my craft room as I think the mess is not helping my mojo but Buddy has decided to join me and is sleeping on the spare chair so I can't do too much in case I wake him :)

Kitty's Krafty Candy

Kitty has some lovely candy but you need to be quick as it closes at midnight tonight
