Welcome to my blogland friends

Wednesday, 31 December 2008

Just wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope the coming year is kind to you. I love coming along and visiting all your blogs and pinching ideas from them :-) hopefully this will be a two way thing if I ever have any ideas worth passing on to you - help yourself!

I've been quite remiss about putting things on here you could have been forgiven for thinking I'd forgotten how. I have had these rabbit stamps for a while now but not used them so thought as I have so many birthdays in January I'd make a start, she is stamped in VintageSepia Versafine and watercoloured with Lyra Aquacolor, the bottom border is done with a corner punch with the wings taken off. I saw this idea on another blog and was quite taken with it, you can see the other things the person who inspired me does here mind you my creations don't hold a candle to her work but I keep trying.

Getting near to the end of my christmas cards now, this is for a friends mum. The image is off the Pamela West cd from Joanna Sheen and the ivy leaves have been cut on my Cricut from a file made by Dan I have used Jones Tones paint for the berries and the corners are cuttlebug. The image is highlighted with Stickles in Stardust.

Made this from the new Strictly Card Dancers cd for my friends birthday, the background is cut on my Cricut using the Storybook cart. Although I have cut it in gold I think it would look good in black too so may have a bit of a play and see what I come up with.

Art Deco CD

Another new cd and this is one of the cards made from it, I think I'll be getting a lot of use from this one as the images are truly fab. I've bought the new Strictly card Dancers too so watch out for a few samples from that too, if you fancy any of these cd's you'll find them here

Back from Holiday and into more crafting.

Made this for a workmate who announced his engagement yesterday after a week off work. It isn't anywhere near as pink as the picture but the flash seems to have changed it's colour.

Sorry not been around much and not really been doing much in the crafting depatment. I needed these cards for a friend so got going and am quite happy with the results.

Will be on holiday next week so a good opportunity to get some pics taken and more scrapbooking done when I get back.

This weeks challenge is to use a Bee Gees song title, something red, a bit of bling some ribbon and buttons. This is my interpretation, I didn't realise the llist of songs that they had written!

Another scrapbook page for another challenge, this one had to have a royal connection amongst other things so this is the best I could do.

Saturday, 23 August 2008

Joined in a challenge for a scrapbook page and this is what I've come up with. It's a bit bright for me really but had the papers and decided to give it a go, hope to do more in the near future as I have tons of pics to sort through.

Here is a card made for an ex workmate who is getting married at the end of the month, sorry I can't take credit for the basic idea but I can for the way I've adapted it.

I've had my Cricut for a few weeks now but haven't really made anything with it, just been playing to see what it will do and I have to say I think it will become something I will use a lot.

I decided to see how this flower would turn out and while it's not 100% it is quite good I think, I cut it out in white card and then painted it with The Stamp Connection pearlescent powder paints, mounted it onto black and used a little piece of oriental paper that came in a kit from C&C quite some time ago.

I've been very poor about posting anything on my blog and the cards I have made have gone out without me taking a photo. Well I have got sorted after a fashion and thought I'd give Rainbow Lady's swirls challenge a go so here is my offering. You can find the challenge at http://rainbowladyschallengeblog.blogspot.com/ . I stamped the swirl pattern over a plain white card then painted the card with some pearlesent powder paints in pale gold, highlighted some of the swirls with the same paint but in red and then popped a chipboard tag again painted with the same paint and stamped with a pretty flower stamp.
Hope you like it.

Saturday, 21 June 2008

Well I had to give in and buy the newest cd from Joanna Sheen, I want to print everything off and just craft but have to be a bit sensible. I have made a start and these are the first two cards made.

My time to craft challenge this week is babies, find details here http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ this is done with some stamps I bought before I really started crafting. embossed in gold then painted as is the sentiment. I have just finished it off with a feather cos I love them.

I think you may be able to guess the reason for this card, not the best picture in the world but hopefully you will be able to see it well enough.
This card also links into the challenge from http://scrummystashcafe.blogspot.com/ who's theme this week is anything baby related.

Well I really must learn to read! I did a pink one first but now have got my act together and here is my offering for Rainbow lady's challenge - find details here http://rainbowladyschallengeblog.blogspot.com/

This weeks challenge was to use one of the colours of the rainbow, well in my fairyland mind pink should be there but it's not so have used violet, I have painted some tapestry card with H2o's then stamped a couple of images from a serendipity stamp set in black and embossed with a sparkle powder, used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole and used some co-ordinating ribbon and eyelet. Hope this is ok don't usually do ATC's but we have to try new things sometimes.
