Daring Card Makers - Handmade Flowers

It's Friday again and time for a new Daring Card Makers challenge and the theme this week is

Handmade Flowers

I've used the Stampin' Unicorn Dotty About Flowers stamp onto some hot pink tissue paper wrapping that I had in my stash (always knew I'd find a way to use it!)  I've only stamped on the top layer and then cut the underneath by layering up the tissue paper so that I cut about 4 or 5 at once.


The flower centres have been made with clear glass gems and I've added some to the wicker heart which I pre painted with acrylic white paint.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 159 - Anything Goes

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme is

Anything Goes

I've used a wooden Christmas tree ornament and used some bakers twine, handwritten sizzix tag and a bell to hide the hole at the top.

Papers are Let It Snow 12x12 stack and I've added half pearls from my stash plus a Sizzix embossed panel.  The wavy line has been cut with an unbranded die.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 21 - The Paper Shelter

Welcome to a new Colour Crazy challenge!  The theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and we had two images to play with.  I couldn't decide which one to use so coloured both!  The first one is Businessman and I've coloured him with Promarkers and used papers that I found in my stash which are from the now retired Funky Hand.  Sentiment was a freebie I got in a magazine years ago.


This is The Great Baker and I've also coloured her with Promarkers and again I've used papers I found in my stash along with some raffia that I've had for quite some time.  Sentiment is from the same set as above.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Little Miss Muffet Challenge 189 - Inspiration

We are half way through the current Little Miss Muffet challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

Here is some extra inspiration from me using Celebrate Balloons image which I've coloured with Promakers and glittered the spotty one.  I've layered it onto a piece of card I found in my stash and added liquid pearl dots around the edge of the card and image.


Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Daring Card Makers - Farewell

Hello, it's Friday again so time for another Daring Card Makers challenge!  The theme this week is

Retirement or Farewell Cards

I've made a Good Luck card for a colleague who I've worked with for around 16 years and this is for the office to sign.  I've used an image by Faith at From The Heart Stamps which sadly is no longer available as the store is now closed.  The sentiment came with the stamp too.

I've used Promarkers to colour plus added gems to the centres of the shamrocks and one I've rather gone over the top with the glitter on the one in the middle!


Ribbon and charm are from my stash.  Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Colour Crazy Challenge Week 20 - Crafty Sentiments

It's time for a new Colour Crazy challenge and the theme, as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and once again, I couldn't choose between the two images were were able to work with so I've used them both!  First up is Emmi-Lou and I've kept her very girly using papers I found in my stash that I'm trying to use up.  Coloured with Promarkers with ribbons, half pearls and charm from my stash.  Sentiment has been cut with an X Cut die.


And here is Gaffi who has also been coloured with Promarkers and a little stickles diamond glitter.  I've used an unbranded die for the backdrop and a Sizzix embossing folder.  Ribbon, half pearls and charm are again from my stash.

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

Little Miss Muffet Challenge 189 - Anything Goes

Time for a new Little Miss Muffet Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are working with the new release stamps and here is one - Polka Dot Pals - Yedda.  I've coloured her up with Promarkers and used a cloud background from Winnie Celebrations 1 from Polkadoodles.  The background wasn't actually wide enough so I've had to piece it down the centre and added some Memory Box cloud die cuts to hide it!


The fence is a die cut that I found in my stash and I've used an unbranded die for the grass (both positive and negative cuts) and right at the front I've used two layers of Clearly Besotted grass die cuts which have been coloured with Promarkers.

Good luck with the challenge!  I'd like to enter the following:

Retirement - Part 3

Here is the third page in the retirement card I made for a work colleague.  His last day was Friday and although I wasn't in work that day I've been told by quite a few people that he loved the card and I also got a lovely email to say the same. 


This page features Crouching Tiger Hidden Dunderton from Dr Digi and I've coloured him with Promarkers plus a computer generated sentiment and papers from a Papermania 6x6 stack - For Him.

It was easier to take the photos of each individual page rather than when they were joined together with metal rings!
