A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge - "A Sketch"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well so far today its been a lot warmer than yesterday and weve luckily not had any snow showers today and the sun has been out at times so its not been a bad a day. Todays card has been created for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch and Paper Piecing" Challenge, and I have used this sweet image for my card, Ive stamped her onto white card and then stamped it again twice onto two different papers from the Maja Designs "Life in the Country" paper pack, the green for her little jacket and socks, and the flowered one for her dress.
Before sticking them onto the image Ive coloured her with my copics and glittered the wings then stuck the cut out pieces on top. I then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Labels No.8 die and then drawn around the same die for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 5" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card thats been put through my cuttlebug with one of the larger embossing folders, then on top is a piece of the green paper that was left and this also has been mount onto a piece of the same green card. Ive then wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottom and created a bow from the same ribbon and stuck it to the card with some silicone glue. The sentiment is one of the CC stamps and this also has been mounted on a piece of the same green card.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Another Sunday and a card for this weeks "Sundays with Santa"

Good Morning Everyone, well the sun is out and its beautiful outside, I even enjoyed my walk with Missy this morning as we met up with a lady with a Scottish Terrier and Missy had the time of her life playing and running along with her, her name is Tia and shes gorgeous and a year old rescue dog.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Sundays with Santa "Unconvential Colours" and Ive used this Edwin image sitting on a stick of candy, Ive stamped him onto white card and used my copic pens to colour him then cut him out with Nestabilitie Label Die No.7 and then drawn around the edge of the die to create a mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has mounted onto dark blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and Ive used four papers from the Bearlymine "Christmas Joy" digi paper set, the first a very pretty mauve background with lots of bubbles on, the second and third Ive used a border punch and layered up and on top is my forth paper a snowflake paper on yet another strip of mauve card.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

A Card for Mo's Challenge - "Using Favourite Things"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well the sky has clouded over again and I think its going to pour with rain again, poor hubby and Missy got soaked this morning and she was filthy when she got back, and she is now nagging to go out again so I think its going to be repeated, oh well as long as Missy enjoys it what does it matter. Well todays card has been created for this weeks "Using Favourite Things" for Mo, and I just love this little mite sitting on his po, I can remember mine many moons ago going through this stage, and by gum Im relieved I dont need to do it anymore as it was quite stressful for not only them but me also.
Ive printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copics, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.7 to cut it out and the die to draw around for the mount. The base card was is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from the Echo Park "A Boys Life" and as I have to make quite a few cards for boys Ive begun to enjoy it, and the best border punches which I love using is this one with trains on, the final paper is a tartan one and this has also been mounted on a piece of the same blue card. The sentiment is the whimsey flag dies and stamps and has been cut and punched out of the same card and the sentiments have been stamped onto white card then cut out by hand. I then strung them all together and arranged them across the top, the final thing is another of my favourite things and that is two buttons from my stash.

A Card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge - "A Sketch"

Good Afternoon Everyone, well its so mild out today and weve just got back from swimming and by gum Im exhausted, that was because there was a load of strong swimmers going up and down and it made the water very choppy, as Im not a strong swimmer it took a lot of strength out of me so thats why Im completely knackered.
Anyway back today card this is for the Sugar Bowl "Sketch" Challenge, this is one of the sweet Sassy Girls, and Ive stamped her and coloured her with my copic pens then used the large oval to cut it out then used a scallop die for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and one of three papers from the Kaisercraft "Utopia" Collection, the first one a blue background with a flower pattern on, the other two are a plain background with spots on in different shades of blue.

"Sundays with Santa" - Traditional Colours

Good Morning Everyone, Im so sorry for not posting for awhile but it was an extremely busy week last week, I had a blood pressure test on Wednesday and a Mamogram on Friday, plus all my DT work I never seem to have enough time just to create a card to post, instead I had a load to do for future Challenges instead so you will have to be a little patient. This card Im posting today was created for yesterdays Sundays with Santa Challenge "Tradition Colours" and Ive used this sweet image and coloured it with my copic pens then used the Nestabilitie Label die No.17 to cut it out then drew around the die to create the mount, the sentiment was one I had as a freebie in one of my craft magazine.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and then Ive used one of the Maja "Vintage Winter" paper a lovely blue background with a Santa in the corner. I then used some white pearlescent card and three of the Memory Box dies to create a corner a border and a Xmas tree which have been placed in several places. The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the setniment at the bottom on the right.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

My second card for Aisne

Good Afternoon Everyone, well the sun is out and it was a lot easier to take a photo because of it, and this is my second sample card for Aisne, as I told you in the post below she asked if I could make a couple of cards up from some digi images she was hoping might become successful and you can get them yourselves if youd like to click on this link http://aisne-creations-cardmaking.blogspot.com/ as shes giving them away as a free download. The link is a brand new Cardmaking Blogspot which she is in the throws of setting up.
I have coloured her with my copic and tria pens then used the Nestabilitie Labels Die No.7 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount, the sentiment is one from CC and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card and one of three papers from the Sweet Shoppe Digi Downloads this one is titled "Two Straws" and the first paper is a green spot then on top is a yellow spot that has had both edges punched with the EK Success paw print border punch, and the last paper is a blue and green diamond pattern. Around the middle I have wrapped two ribbons one a yellow satin and on top is a green organza, then I created a bow with the organza and stuck it to the right of the image which was positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
