Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 41


Again another lovely challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge BlogWk 41. The theme was doodling and I have added a little doodling around the edges of the layered card. I've made a Christmas card to add to my Christmas box. Stamped the mouse and coloured with Copics. Layered him onto coloured card and added the Sizzix cut star which I wrote the sentiment on and doodled around the edge. Applied another punched star, 2 punched snowflakes and ribbon. I'm not a great doodler but have just added touches here and there.

Another Cupcake

Hello Peeps,
Again, haven't been able to get much done as hubby on a late shift, and can't leave the kids on there own(as much as I'd like to do just that some nights - aaaaggghhhh)
So this is a make from last weekend that I've been saving to upload. The cupcake image and sentiments are Hero Arts stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia and coloured with Copics, cut out and layered onto nestabilities and then on to DCWV backing paper. I then over stamped swirls onto the backing paper with a pink chalk pad. I used a sizzix die to cut the squiggly pink borders and glittered them with pink glitter. I layered the sentiments onto the card and added the various flowers to finish.

Ikea Pen pots

Thought i'd just add some piccies of my new pen pots that I got from Ikea this week. The 7 pots and the rail cost just over £5. They hang great on the slopey roof walls in my loft and I soon filled them up with all my pens and "must have to hand" tools. It's given me a bit more space on my work surface and I feel all tidy and organised now (for a while at least, until I fill it with more stuff)
Next up is the little set of Drawers on castors that I got from there too which were £20. Thought these were great because you can spend £20 on a plastic set that come apart every time you move them!! Or is that just me.LOL. Have filled these up now but have managed to stash alot of clutter away too.

Just thought I'd share

Magnolia Vs Stampavie Sketch Challenge

Had to have a go with the lovely sketch for this weeks Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge Its a really nice sketch to do. I used a stamped image kindly sent to me by Shelley at Minkie's Paper Paradise.I coloured her with copics and layered her onto card and backing paper(DCWV-Sweet Shop-I think) following the sketch. The flowers weren't in the sketch but I couldn't help but add them as the space was crying out for them! The swirls and heart border are cut on the sizzix and the sentiment printed on the P.C.
Hope you all have a good crafting weekend

Thankyou Card

Haven't been doing a lot of card making and blogging this last week. Have been busy working, going to parents evenings and watching toooooo much television,(excuses, excuses, excuses). Hope to pull my finger out this weekend. Went to Ikea on Thursday and bought a great rail with pots on for my pens etc to tidy my craft space up in loft, so can't wait to get up there and get making again. It's surprising how a bit of a spring clean can inspire you to get going again.( Will try and take some piccies of the pots - there great)

Just made a little Thankyou card for a neighbour of mine. Used a Penny Black stamp I bought a few weeks ago and hadn't used yet. Coloured image with Copics and layered onto card and co-ordinating backing paper. Added sentiment, flowers, ribbon, bling and glitter glue to finish.

Cupcake Card

Made this card for my Cousins 21st Birthday. Didn't want to use the 21 as the main theme for the card so used these gorgeous Hero Arts Cupcake stamps. Stamped in Versafine and coloured with Copics and then layered using my nestability dies. Covered the card in pretty pink spotty paper first and then layered the various elements onto the card. Used Sizzlits to cut out "21" from matching glitter card.Finished off with Stickles glitter glue and real sugar cake sprinkles just for fun.

Thought I'd better have a go at this decorating inside lark!!!!

Covered the inside of the card with pretty pink paper and stamped another Hero Arts Cupcake to layer inside. The "Special Day" sentiment is an old PSX stamp that I love.Finished off the inside with glitter glue and ribbon.
