Penny Black Flowers

Hello and happy Saturday!  My card today is for the latest challenge over at The Flower Challenge where this month it is "use an older stamp or die".  I have used the Demure stamp set from Penny Black.  I have had this stamp for a few years and only used it a couple of times!  I stamped it with CP Midnight ink and coloured it in with a  Crimson Kaszazz Alcohol marker.  I used Prisma coloured pencils for the shading.  The sentiment is from Label Love from Altenew and I adhered it onto my card panel with foam tape.  I think I will use this stamp set more often as it came together very quickly!

I am also entering this card into the Muse challenge where they have a "free for all" challenge.
Anita is the Muse with a beautiful feminine card so I thought my floral card fitted in!

Here's my card.



                                       

                                      Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #214


Image may contain: text

Hello and happy Friday!  This week at CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog we have an inspiration photo for you.  I took inspiration from the Christmas ornament and pulled out my Ornament Tag Fri-Die and the Mistletoe & Holly stamp set.  I stamped the mistletoe and gold heat embossed it.  I coloured it in with Altenew Artist markers, ran a glue pen around the edge of the die cut and sprinkled it with gold glitter. Click HERE to take you over to the challenge blog and see how the other DT members were inspired.

         



If you would like the chance to win a US$25 certificate to spend in the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using the photo as inspiration and link it up to the challenge here.  You don't have to use CAS-ual Fridays stamps but if you do use them as your main focus, Michele will double the prize to US$50.

Thanks for looking and good luck!

Less is More Challenge #385

Hello and happy Sunday!  My card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More where the theme is OLC Holiday.  I actually love a one layer card but I have to be careful not to make any mistakes because you cant cover them up with an embellishment!  I've used two very old stamp sets for my card today.  I stamped the tree with Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink and added some diamond glitter to it using a quickie glue pen.  I also added some glitter along the bottom of the trees.   The sentiment is an old wooden stamp from Stampin Up Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I stamped that in CP Midnight ink along the side of the tree.  This card came together very quickly, I think I will make a few more in different colour combinations.  A pink one would look good!!

Christmas Reindeer card

Hello and happy Sunday!  I made this cute reindeer card for a crafty friend and thought I would enter it into some challenges.  I found two "new to me" challenges that this card fits!

The first one is  the Alphabet Challenge Blog where this weeks challenge is R for Reindeer.  Perfect!
The next one is 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

I have used a digi stamp  from Bugaboo Stamps.  I used a mixture of Copics, Altenew Artist markers and Kaszazz alcohol markers to colour the image in and added some glitter around the panel.  

                                  



Thanks for looking!  I am off to enjoy a day of crafting now with my friend Tristan!  I hope she doesn't see this before I get to her house!

 No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  There's a new challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog today and we want you to use Shades of Gold on your card.  Gold screams Christmas to me but you can make any kind of card you like.  I have used the gorgeous Mistletoe & Holly Stamp set on my card.  I gold heat embossed the mistletoe and sentiment and then painted the image with Prima Metallic accents watercolors.  I ran a glue pen around the edge of my card panel and sprinkled it with gold glitter.  
There are so many different shades of gold on my card!  Click HERE to check out the challenge for yourself,  the rest of the Design Team have some gorgeous gold cards over there!

Muse Challenge #291 Christmas tags

Hello, my card today isn't a card!  It's a tag for the Muse challenge where Tracey is the current Muse with a gorgeous Christmas tag.  Click HERE to take you over to the Muse challenge blog.



                                                                 Here's Tracey's tag.

                                                      

Isn't it cute!!  I don't have any little people stamps (that I can remember) but I do have a new stamp set from Uniquely Creative called Christmas Cookies.  There are a heap of cute little images in this stamp set begging to be coloured.  I chose three, coloured them in with Copics and cut them with my scan n cut.  The tag is a Fri-Die from CAS-ual Fridays.  I sponged CP Inks in All that Jazz and Daydream onto my tag and spritzed with water.  

                                                                       Here's my tag.

Muse Challenge #290 - Birthdays are scary!

Hello, my card today is for the Muse challenge #290.  This weeks Muse is Anita with this lovely card.
                                                           

I based my card on the colours, the balloon and the layout.
I used Silly Monsters 2 from Your Next Stamp and the balloon is from Studio Katia.  I coloured my images in with Zig real brush markers but they didn't blend too well on the card stock so I went over it with Prisma pencils.  Hmmmm, it didn't turn out too well in the photo but it looks better in real life!
How true is that sentiment when your years are marching on!!
