2013 Snap Shot

Hi Everyone, 

Happy New Years Eve!!!

How are we all doing?

I can not believe that today is the last day in 2013.  I have logged in today as well to find that I have reached 100 followers, so I would just like to say a massive THANK YOU to all my new followers and old faithful followers who have stayed with me. I was thinking of doing a blog candy for when I received 100 but it crept up on me, so I will look at doing on for when I reach 150.

2013 for me has been full of ups and downs in both my crafty life and my personal life,  Lots of ups and downs, but then when I look around the world at what is happening to various different countries and to different people, some of my problems seem nothing to compared to theirs.

But I no for one thing 2013 was a big improvement on my crafting, my family and friends have all commented on how my crafting has improved and I have been lucky enough to be picked to be on various design teams and guest designers.

My crafting has also seen me picked as winners in challenges and be part of the top three, but I think my biggest achievements of 2013 have got to be - becoming part of Complete Card Making Magazine Design Team and getting a new job that I actually love. 

2014 I have big plans in my head for my crafting, starting with new blogs, new challenges, new designs, and lots more. I can't wait to share my ideas with you. 

So for my last post of 2013 I thought I would share with you some of my favourites cards and layouts. 

















Probably went a little mad on my selection but I just could not decide!

Anyway once again thank you all for your comments and support and kind wishes over the year. 
 
I wish each and everyone of you guys a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year. 

All The Best For 2014

It's Christmas Time

Good Evening Everyone,

Today is half way inspiration for our current challenge of 


Don't forget it doesn't just have to be a card, it can be anything so long as it is Christmas related and you have until the 28th December to enter. 

So on to my card. 




It is a standard A5 card blank, matted with red card and blue snowflake paper.

The image is stamped and coloured using promarker pens.

I have used my spellbinders to create the different matts. My cricut machine for the snow flakes.

I finished the card with a sentiment stamped from the Popcorn the Bear collection.

I have added glitter to the image and white liquid pearl around the teddy. I used Glossy accents for his nose. I also added glitter to the snowflakes.

To finish the card I added white gel stitching around the sentiment and three pieces of card candi.

Sorry about the quality of the photo, I just could not get my lighting right with it, hopefully Santa will be bringing me a light tent for it.

Hope to see you all joining in the challenges.

He's just a skater boy!

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are we all doing?

The card I have for you today is a card I made for my husbands cousin he turned 17 the other week.. honestly were does the time go, I remember him a shy little boy, who wouldn't say boo to a goose, and now he is so out going, and is taller then me .. apparently tho if you ask my dad that isn't hard to do.. I am the shortest in our family. 

Anyway onto today's card. 

I started with an 8x8 card blank in Navy blue, that I created using two pieces of A4 card cut and folded to create the blank, I matted and layered it in blue and white mats, added the brown top layer, a blue white and blue mat for the middle a torn piece of paper for the edge, a matted printed and coloured with pro marker digi. I cut the numbers 17 out from my cricut and cut these four times glued them together to give the height and de-embossed them -- actually I was trying to emboss them but put it in the folder the wrong way,  I quiet like the look you can get when you do a mistake. I cut some splats out apparently they are called stars in my cricut book, but look more like splats to me, I used my distress crackle paint and crackled them. 

I added four bits of card candi to the corners and a border across the top and the bottom of the center section.

Hip Hip Horray - 91 Today

Good Morning Everyone, 

Today I have for you a birthday card that I have created for my Husbands Gran, she has just gone 91 years young.. wow.. Still in her own home, still as sane as me or you.. and doing amazingly well. 

I decided to do something a bit different for me, for starters I used the colours Blue and Green together, and secondly I have not used a stamp or digi stamp... This is so unusual for me, as every time I need a card, I just grab my boxes of stamps.. not this time tho. 

I loved making this card and my poor circut machine did not know what had hit it.. 

I started of with a a5 card blank in hammered white from the paper mill direct - I love their card.

I cut a matt slightly smaller then the base of the card and used an olive green ink pad and edged the card to create the green - I didn't have any olive coloured card and this worked perfectly for me and with it being on the hammered card gave a lovely texture to the inking.

Next I printed out a blue backing paper from the paper mania capsule collection. I love this CD and go to it all the time for backing papers and generally I always find something I can use. 

I then took two pieces of white card and used a heart border punch down the edge of the card and attached this to the blue backing paper.

Using my spellbinder dies, I cut out two ovals, one that fits in the middle of the other, I mounted the middle one of some foam so it gives a slightly raised look to it. 

Now onto my cricut machine. I cut out my little bird house from my Create a Critter cartridge. 

I cut out all my leaves and my flowers from my Martha Stewart All Seasons cartridge, the leaves were cut  in various sizes from 1 1/2 inches down to 1/2 inch I cut them all in half and layered them where needed and once I was happy just glued them down so they didn't move. My flowers were 1 1/2 inch and then 1 inch (If I remember correctly) I cut all my shapes out in white and used the same ink to ink the leaves and the bird house.

I stamped my sentiment "Bunches of Love" in the same olive green stamp and cut the sentiment out using a spellbinders die.

To finish the card of I used 7 clear gems and one blue gem.




The challenges that I am entering this into are 

4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes - 28/11
Aud Sentiments - #94 Any Sentiment  6/12

My card is an 8x8 card blank matted and layered on white and pink card, with all the edges of the cards distress in two different pink distress ink - actually the white layers are hardly noticeable now..opps

I cut out my largest grand nestie label 1 shape, and cut it about half an inch over the half way mark, I inked my embossing folder, and ran my die cut through the machine to give the texture look to it. 

I stamped and coloured the image in using momento ink and promarkers.

 To finish the card I cut out a spellbinder shape, stamped and embossed my sentiment using a white embossing folder, attached a piece of ribbon and a bow, a corner die and three pieces of card candi, and finally to finish it all off I used a white and pink fine liner pen and faux stitched the layers.

For this card I used a white card blank, a blue and white spot backing paper which was edged with dark blue distress ink, I used a dark blue card stock for a mat, I also used my cuttlebug embossing folder and used a technique with m Twinkling H20 where you get them really wet onto your non stick crafty sheet, and use the black/grey side of the cut and dry foam (normally I use the white side for distress inks) and then rubbed the H20 over the embossing, giving it  a lovely "twinkling" look to it with a hint of colour.

I used a spellbinder die to cut out my image and sentiment section. I coloured my image in using my promarker pens, and went around him with my stickles glue to give  alot of glitter and shine to it.

Black and White

Good Morning Everyone, 

Today is a start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. 

This weeks theme is 

BLACK AND WHITE

Now when I first seen this challenge I was like wow that will be great, when I got down to making the card, boy did I struggle, then suddenly inspiration popped into my head and this is the result. 

To make this card, I used an A4 black card blank, printed a green holly and swirl backing paper, but printed on my black and white laser. I cut the swirly Christmas Tree out using my electronic die cutting machine, I got the file from Birds Cards, and I love the file, I selected my mat to 6x4 inches filled the mat with the tree then just copied it on to my 12x12 mat and the size come out perfect for this card. 
I matted the tree onto black and white card stock, stamped a sentiment out and embossed it in white, and matted and layered this onto black and white card stock as well. I finished the card with gems on the tree and six pieces of card candi.

Birthday Times

Good Morning Everyone, 

Howe are we all today? Nearly the weekend again, really this year is flying bye. 

Today I have a card for you for Patties Creations Challenge Blog. 

This fortnights theme is "Birthday" 


For this card I used one of Patties Images called Pansies In Pitcher  

I love this images, the detail is great on it, and you can do any colour combination you want as Pansies come in all colours.





 I used baby pink card for the base, and used a pink and white stripe paper stock and cut it into four panels and spaced them out I edged each piece with distress inks and then went around them with a black fine liner and added faux stitching

For the Topper section I used a cuttlebug embossing folder again using the baby pink card, I used a technique I seen recently on a Creative Expressions show, were they used the twinkling cosmic shimmer paint pod (I used my Twinkling H20) and used the black side of the cut and dry foam and rubbed it over my card, it picked up on just the embossing section and gave a lovely "twinkle" to the card.

I cut the image out using the spellbinder label die and coloured the image in using promarker pens, adding shading to appropriate places.

To finish the card I added three white butterflies around the image a sentiment of "Happy Birthday" in white to the bottom of the card, a pink bow and ribbon, three pink card candi pieces and then used pink liquid pearls and added "pearls" down the center of the butterflies.

The challenges I am entering this into are:

Birthday Suprise

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

So sorry I have not been around for a week, I have not stopped all week and I just don't know were the time has gone. 

Can I also just say a quick Hello and Thank You to new and old followers, and a big thank you to everyone who leaves comments for me, they are very much appreciated. 

I have noticed my followers are getting closer and closer to 100.. Maybe when we get over the hundred I might do a surprise give away. 

Today's card I a card I made for my Mother In Laws birthday. I went with the rich pink card stock I had left over from my wedding invitations as I wanted to use the brown/pink backing paper that I had selected and these two work together brilliantly.

I seen this card shape on pinterest and just had to try it when I seen it. 

I took step by step instructions (not all the steps tho I forgot a few ooops) and thought I would share with you. Please stay with me, this is my first step by step I have done, but it is something I am hoping to do more of in the future. 

So here we go 

These are the measurements that you need, for the size of the card I made you need to use 2 a4 pieces of card. On one piece you need to score at 1 1/2 inch, 3 inch, 5 inch, 7 inch and 9 inch. You then need to fold them into mountain and valley folds. 
The second piece of card needs to be scored at 3 inch and this needs adhering to the remaining section of card 1. You then need to fold the remaining of the second card so that the two pieces of card meet so the card will stand up equally.

This is what it should look like when it is stood up. 

I used a brown/pink backing paper with white flowers - I think it is a popcorn backing paper from Crafters Companion. The measurements for the paper are 1 1/4 inch, 2 3/4 inch, 4 3/4 inch, 6 3/4 inch, 8 3/4. I think they were cut at 8 inches but whatever the a4 card is I took a quarter of an inch of. 

The next step I added the borders, these are spellbinders border and have been cut and embossed using a white card stock. 

And this is the finished card, I added a selection of flowers that I cut from my cricut machine, stamped and coloured my image in using a House Mouse Stamp from Joanna Sheen, and coloured with my promarker pens, I stamped the sentiment and added gems in various places to give it the detail it needed. 
This is the side view of the card. 

So this is the tutorial of how I did it, like I said I forgot a few steps, I meant to take some pics of the colouring in stage but I got to involved into the colouring in and forgot to take the photos, and again when I was cutting and assembling the flowers.. 


The challenges I am entering this card into are:-

Paper Creators Crafts -#16  Blue or Pink -9/11
Craftyhands Challenge Blog - #1 - Anything Goes - 8/11

Witching Hour

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you?

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu

This weeks theme is 

HALLOWEEN

Now as you know I am not a fan of Halloween, but after making gift cards, gift tags and sweetie bags, I thought it was time I made an actual Halloween Card. 

Now the card is a little over 5x5 

I used my Black soot distress ink to change the colour of the card from the standard cream to the black. 
The next layer was cut down a quater of an inch, coloured in with a purple promarker and mounted onto the card.

The main layer of the card has again been coloured using dress ink "black soot" I was looking for a wispy night look to it, so wasn't going 100% perfect on the blending as I wanted texture to the card.  I created my "moon" by cutting out a small circle and temporary adhering it to the layer before putting the ink on, and then I pealed the “moon" away leaving the white look. 

I used a white ink pad and a star stamp and added a few stars to the back ground. 

All my images have been cut from the cricut. I cut three bats, a cat, a witch, and a picket fence. I coloured the bats, witch and cat in with a black promarker to make them stand out, but left the fence white for additional detail. 

I finished the card by adding a ribbon and a bow to the picket fence. 



The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:

A Gem of a Challenge - Halloween -  25/10
Crafty Calender Challenge - Halloween - 2/11
Craftitude - Anything Goes/Spooky - 2/11
Sarah Hurley - Halloween - 1/11

Anyway I hope you like the card, and I will be back soon.

Published Again -- Yippee

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you all today. 

Now yesterday I said that I was going to give you a tutorial.. My tutorial has vanished from my computer, so I need to re do it - so you'll have to wait for a few more days.. Sorry about that.. Don't you just hate computers when they don't work. 

Anyway I just wanted to give you heads up on a magazine. 

Complete Cardmaking issue 46 is out now in the stores, and I can tell you it is an amazing addition. The images on the free CD are delightful. 

I am even more excited as this is the second time the editor has used me for her "freebie feature" and I was super excited to see one of the cards on the front cover of the magazine.  Super excited

Anyway I suggest a little trip to the shops and have a look at the magazine I enjoy reading it and like I said the CD is adorable. 




I will be showcasing the cards I made for you all, over the next few weeks. 

Anyway I will leave you alone for today, I will be back tomorrow with a challenge card for Eclectic Ellapu.

Orange and Black

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are you all, can you believe it is Friday already? These weeks are flying past. 

Last night our local garden center had their Christmas open night, seemed very strange to be going around looking at decorations before we have even had Halloween. 

Talking about halloween, it is time for a new challenge over at Patties Creations Challenge Blog. This fortnights theme is 

ORANGE and BLACK

 

Now I don't normally do "Halloween", but when I seen Patties, cute Pumpkins I couldn't resist them. 

I used Pumpkin Patch from Patties store. 

I didn't want to make a card this time around and I don't normally give sweets out, but I decided to have a go at making my own little sweetie bag.

So I printer out "Pumpkin Patch" and coloured it in using "punpkin" promarker, I used a yellow for the inside of the pumpkin and a green for the top. 

I matted and layered this up on Orange and Black mats.

I took a food bag and filled up my bag with orange, black and green sweets. I fixed the "topper" to the bag which created the "seal" and then I cut my own pumpkin patch from my cricut and added it to the bottom of the bag. 





Not my normal crafty thing to do but I actually really liked the look of it. 

This year for Christmas I have LOADS of ideas of what I want to make, so doing this really got me in the mood to start my Christmas favor boxes for my table. 

The challenges I am entering this into are:-
DL.ART Thankful Thursday - Pumpkin - 24/10
Paper Crafting Journey - Halloween Colours - 24/10


I hope you like. Thanks for popping in and taking the time to read/view and thanks for the comments. 

I will be back tomorrow with a small tutorial.

The image I have used is a Lili of the valley image I love their stamps, they always stamp out with immaculate impressions and stamp first time. Love them and they are so affordable as well. 

I went with a standard A5 card and used two pieces of backing paper. For the corner I used a cut from my cricut machine. 

I added a Christmas sentiment and cut using a spellbinders die, added glitter, ribbon and bow to finish the card.
