Flower Girl

Hello everyone, hope you're having a good weekend and that you've got better weather than we've had as it's been raining most of the day - typical Bank Holiday weather!
I'm here at last with my entry for this week's Sunday Stamper and Hels' theme is Ripped and Torn. Managed to finish it earlier but stopped to watch Dr Who which was a bit sad this week. I'm really enjoying the new series as Matt makes a great Dr to replace David Tennant who was my fave one ever. Any way, enough of that and here's what I made:
Sorry about the slightly wonky photo which I had to take in the sun lounge as it was the only place the light was good enough. I had to balance and try not to fall over the piles of bathroom tiles in there.
I made the background paper by stamping a flower from Crafty Notions Blossoms and Leaves all over in Versamark ink then embossing with clear powder. I rubbed Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Scattered Straw over the top. I then tore all the edges.
I then tore the bottom of a piece of corrugated card and painted it in streaks of green, blue, white and copper. I stamped the butterfly from Crafty Notions Pansy stamp plate and painted it with Majestic Blue H20 paint.
I used one of my own vintage images from an old postcard and put this on a mat of coppery foil. If you like the image, you can download her via the Vintage Downloads label on my side bar, along with another vintage postcard.
I finished off with a greeting from Butterfly Kisses Art Collage clear stamp set.

In Gear

Second post of the day with my finally finished card for the current Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge. I have to admit I had a real struggle with this one as it's racing themed and that's not something the men in my family like that much so I was a bit stuck for ingredients.
Here's the recipe:
And here's my card:
I made a stripy background paper using Distress inks in Barn Door and Mustard Seed and 2 stamps - Anita's Distressed Stripes and Hampton Art Scratch Pattern 2635. I inked over the scratch pattern with the yellow ink.
I stamped the car - Inkadinkado 91406X - in black on mount board and embossed it with clear UTEE. I inked round the edges with permanent black. I inked some of Maya Road's chipboard gears with Black Soot Distress ink.
I made a small journalling panel with a Paper Artsy script stamp and inked it with the red and yellow inks. My Polka Doodles Not For Girls CD came to the rescue with some car themed background paper and I assembled the card as you see after inking the edges of the pieces with black.

Polka Doodles Challenge - Sew and Sew

It's Friday folks so it's time for the next Polka Doodles challenge which has been chosen by Lou and is called SEW AND SEW. Lou would like to see stitching on your projects whether it be real or faux, the choice is yours.
My card has both as there is hand stitching involved as well as some drawing. I've also been a bit sneaky here as the card is one of the samples I made for Nikky for the TV but as it fits the theme perfectly, it seemed a shame not to use it.
All the elements here come from the All Around & Everywhere CD and I chose a blue and brown colour theme as I wanted to use some pretty lace that I found in a local shop where the owner has a passion for ribbon. She has the largest and cheapest selection of ribbons, braid and lace I've ever seen.
I printed out one of the pretty stacking roses and cut out the pieces, layering them up with foam tape and curling the edges upwards. I added a punch out button to the centre and covered it with a clear dimensional sticker. I then took a piece of lace and stitched down one long edge, gathering it up into a pleated circle which I attached the rose to.
I cut a piece of polka dot paper to fit the card blank and drew faux zig zag stitching all around the edges with a fine brown pen. I stuck this on and then added a central strip of lace and one of the pretty borders. I stuck the rose on then added pearls and one of the circular punch out sentiments to finish.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 6 June to get your entries in and good luck.

Elusive Flower

Hope you've all had a gorgeous day like we have here. It's been hot and sunny all day which has been fabulous after such a long cold spell.
I'm here with my entry for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge, no 30 would you believe, and here's the inspirational photo and colours that Mona wants everyone to use:
I was totally inspired by the beautiful bed linen with such a gorgeous print and wanted to create a background paper for my card with a fabric look. The first thing my daughter said on seeing the finished card was that the paper looked just like fabric! She hadn't seen the challenge photo so I'll be interested to know what everyone else thinks.
I made the card with a set of Elusive Images stamps which I got free when I subscribed to Craft Stamper magazine a little while ago.

The background paper was made using my Watercolour Crayon Technique (see Tutorial link on side bar) and I used Pale Yellow and Pink Neocolor 11 crayons. I stamped the flourish design on top with Crushed Olive Distress ink.
I stamped the flower with black dye ink and coloured it with Promarkers to match in with the colours of the challenge. I ran a green ink pad round the edges and stuck pink pearls in the corners.
I made a central border with toning Bazzill card trimmed with the Martha Stewart double dot scallop punch and added a strip of pearls. The greeting is Hobby Art GC1676B and was stamped in black dye ink.  I overstamped with the flower and pink ink to soften the effect a little and ran the green ink round the edges.

Hello folks, hope you've all got the gorgeous sunny weather we have here on the South coast today. It's certainly made the birds happy as they're being very noisy outside my window.
I have a card here which fits 2 challenges, the first being Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper  with a theme this week of Red and the second is Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge GC55 with a theme of Quotes.

I really enjoyed making this as it gave me a chance to use a gorgeous family photo taken in 1926 of my mother's much older cousin, May. I scanned the photo and gave it a red wash in Photoshop which really brought out some of the details not quite so prominent in the original sepia.
The background paper is a square of watercolour paper which I first stamped on with 2 squares of Ranger Cut 'n' Dry with Barn Door and Spun Sugar Distress inks. I then stamped on them again to add just a touch of Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick.
I then stamped on the lighter squares some of the images from Impression Obsession's Ornate Squares CL120 clear set with VersaFine Crimson Red ink. On the darker squares, I stamped a further design in black. I then stamped the small flower in the gaps with the VersaFine ink.
I stamped B Line Designs Large Butterfly FF115D in black and coloured just one side with Distress inks. I stamped the quote, Penny Black ...Dreams 2711F in the VersaFine ink, cut it out and sponged with Distress inks.
I assembled the card as shown in the photo.

Polka Doodles Challenge - Something For Mum

Hello folks, it's time for this week's Polka Doodles challenge which is my turn to choose the theme and I want to see Something For Mum as yesterday 20 May was my dear Mum's birthday and as those of you who know me are aware, we lost her 5 years ago after a few years battle with Alzheimers' Disease. I always think of her a lot around this time so that's why I chose this theme.
You can make whatever you like whether it be a card, a gift, a scrapbook layout and so on as long as it has Mum in mind. I also want you to use her favourite colours of Blue and Peach/Orange.
I decided to make a keepsake with the best photo I have of my Mum when she was 21 years old. As you'll see it was taken around 1950 so she has the hairstyle of the day which really suited her.
I've chosen to use some of the pretty peach and blue papers from the latest Polka Doodles CD, All Around & Everywhere with lovely Summer themed collections.
I covered a 20cm square of mount board with peach dotty paper and then made a patchwork pattern at the bottom with 4cm squares of co-ordinating papers. I cut a piece of the flower text paper, following the lines of the text for a lovely wavy effect. I stuck this on the upper half.
I mounted my photo on some blue polka dot paper and added this along with some stitched ribbon, a flower coloured with Promarkers, some peach pearls and the text panel using letters from the Back To Nature CD printed out on blue paper and cut out.
You have until Sunday 30 May to get your entries in and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
You'll also like to know that Polka Doodles is having a DT CALL  at the moment as we've lost a couple of teamies recently and Nikky wants a new creative member for the team. Pop over to the challenge blog if you're interested as there's not much time left to apply.

Butterfly Plaque

Well here's my second post today with my finally finished entry for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge set by Sarah with these colours below to use on your creation:
It's such a lovely photo and gorgeous natural colours even though it's actually peeled paint that I decided to go with nature and have made a round plaque to be hung on the wall or displayed on an easel.
The plaque is made from part of a box which I wanted to recycle as the card is quite thick and ideal for this sort of thing.
I inked all around the edges with VersaColor Lime and then stamped on a small Anna Griffin rose in VersaFine Olympia Green to make a textured looking edge. I then cut a circle of pale blue card and stamped a large Rubber Stampede flower all over in lime and green tea inks. I stuck this to the plaque.
I then stamped the smaller butterfly from Stamp Scapes 14B Butterflies on pale blue card with the VersaFine ink and embossed it with Crystal powder. I cut it out and embossed on the reverse with a large ball tool to make the wings curve.
I stamped one more flower and cut it out, embossed on the back as for the butterfly and stuck over the central flower on the plaque with foam tape. I then stuck the butterfly on with foam tape.
Many thanks due to my dear friend Brenda for pointing out that this fits the May challenge over at Sir Stampalot so I'm entering it in that too.

Angel Art

Hello everyone, it's a gorgeous sunny day here today and much warmer at last so let's hope it decides to stay this time.
I have a card to share with you that I made for the current Ready Steady Stamp challenge which is to use these ingredients:
I really enjoyed doing this one as it gave me the chance to break out my lovely set of Oxford Impressions angel stamps which are fabulous quality and look like photos rather than a stamp.
I made the background paper by stamping Clearly Inspired Stencil Flowers roses in blue metallic pigment ink and embossing with Renaissance Aquatic embossing powder by Enchanted Creations. I then sponged Tumbled Glass Distress ink over the top. I stuck this to my card blank with a piece of embossed silver card from my stash and stuck white crochet lace and silver ribbon over the join.
I stamped the angel (isn't she cute!) on Judikins glossy coated paper in VersaFine Onyx Black and left her to dry. I made a background for her by applying Silver and Stream alcohol inks to acetate which I glued to white card. I put this on a mat of the silver card and then black paper trimmed with the Martha Stewart dot scallop punch. I glued the angel on.
I then inked a wooden heart (I could hear Elvis singing in my head whilst doing this lol) with silver Encore ink and then stamped roses on with blue and embossed with clear powder. The roses went a darker shade of silver when I did this.
I altered a slightly garish metal flower by dabbing on the alcohol inks to tone it down a bit and stuck this to a paper flower (Prima). I finished off by assembling the card as shown with a quote I found and loved which I stamped with the roses in turquoise ink to blend in more.

Saturday 15 May 2010


Here's my second post today with my entry for this week's Sunday Stampers challenge We Are Golden which is only just in time after a very busy week working on accounts. You can guess what I'd rather do!
For the challenge, Hels wants to see gold on your creation and my entry is the card here:
My first background was made by stamping B Line Designs SE125K Ribbons and Flowers Background on Southfield Stationers parchment paper (the old fashioned kind not the sort used for Pergamano) and embossing it with Ranger Tarnished Gold powder. I then sponged on Ranger Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Crushed Olive.
The second panel was made by embossing pale lilac card with the embossing folder from the Cuttlebug Ornamental Iron set and then swiping Brilliance Pearlescent Olive ink over the raised areas. When this had dried, I sponged  some VersaColor Lilac ink in the spaces.
I stuck the panels to a gold card blank I made and put a piece of Laura Ashley Love Sonnet ribbon over the join. I printed out the golden ballerina from the Golden Collage Pack by Dezinaworld which I bought from my lovely friend June and then cut her out. I ran the Cool Grey 2 Promarker round the edges for definition.
I printed the text out from the computer, cut it out and then stamped on it using the background stamp and Khaki and Split Pea VersaColor inks. I then added a little Lilac. I assembled the card as shown, adding flowers secured with a gold brad and a gold border sticker from Anitas.


Morning everyone, hope you've all got a lovely sunny day like we have here on the South coast. I've found it very inspirational and I have a card to show you that I've managed to make to fit 3 challenges.
In keeping with the lovely weather, I've used warm, sunny colours and my new clear stamp set, Build A Sunflower from Papermania. I saw this in our newly opened branch of The Range and couldn't resist it as I have some of their others and they always stamp so beautifully.
You'll have to excuse the photo which is slightly wonky as I was dodging bright sunlight when I took it so it came out slightly askew (I'm not drunk, honest!!!).
I stamped the sunflower sections in Memories Artprint Brown dye ink and coloured them with Promarkers (Sunflower, Gold and Amber).I cut them out leaving a narrow white border and then went round all the edges with the Amber Promarker to ass emphasis. I stuck them together with ds and foam tape and stuck a dimensional circle over the centre.
I used a mix of papers from the Papermania Sunshine Capsule collection together with a polka dot paper by Polka Doodles from the Paper Boutique CD. I trimmed the edges with small scallop scissors and the polka dot paper was made into a central band by trimming both edges with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice edge punch.
I covered a small white tag with odd bits of the papers, stamped text from the stamp set on, then inked round the edges with Umber and Marigold VersaColor inks. I wound old gold thread around the top and bottom and finished off with a metal button.
I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
Pink Elephant Challenge - Yellow, Decorated Paper and Buttons
One Stitch At A Time - Going Dotty (my yellow polka dot paper)
Stamp Something - Celebrate

Friday 14 May 2010


Hello everyone, I'm here with something you probably thought you'd never see me doing. I decided to enter Sally's theme at Tuesday Taggers which is to Step Outside your Comfort Zone and boy have I done that today!
I've had a couple of Magnolia Tilda stamps sitting in my stash for quite a few years now, having bought them from Sir Stampalot at a show thinking that I must see what all the fuss is about. As they're so not me, they've been unused ever since so with Sally's theme to encourage me, I've made a card with them.
It certainly wasn't easy as I also made myself use decorated paper which I'm still learning to use after years of making my own.
So here it is:
 I stamped Tilda and her cat and coloured them with Promarkers. I cut Tilda out using the Nestabilities Label 2 Set (available from Polka Doodles), off setting her slightly to the left side. I cut the cat out to set at her right side as she looks as though she's gazing down at him.
I cut a label shape mat from K & Co Recycled Rose Reds paper and stuck the panel to this. I then cut a panel from Papermania's Sunshine Capsule Collection and stuck this to a slightly larger panel of the K & Co paper. I added another panel of yellow paper to a large card blank and added the other panels as shown.
I finished off with some flowers altered with H20 paints, centres made from brass stampings from Empire Beads and attached with metal brads. I added a sentiment from Hobby Art's clear stamp set CS013D Anna's Collection Floral Greetings, stamped on the yellow paper and stuck to a mat embossed round the edges using my M & F score board.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Metal Mania - my flower centres
ABC Challenge - Unused Stash - my stamps
Tuesday Taggers - Step Outside Your Comfort Zone - my stamps
I Love Promarkers - Sketch

Polka Doodles Challenge - Dimension and Texture

Morning folks, it's a special week at Polka Doodles as it's the challenges' first birthday so Happy Birthday Polka Doodles and here's to many more!
The challenge this week has been set by Enfys and she would like to see Dimension and Texture on your creations - there are plenty of ways to do this so it's out with the embossing tools and embossing powder etc. There's also the added challenge that as it's the birthday week, Nikky has put together a fabulous FREE download with Dad in mind and you NEED to use this for your creation. Pop over to the challenge blog and you'll find the link there.
There are also some fabulous prizes on offer this week as we will have a Top 5 and each one will receive a set of Polka Doodles Rubber Stamps and a CD, although the winner will receive 2 CDs and a set of stamps. How fantastic is that!
And now on to my project for this week for which I've once again used the new All Around & Everywhere CD as I've been wanting to use the particular papers since I got my hands on them and this week is perfect.
I fell in love with these papers and the pretty lacey embellishments as soon as I saw them and decided to make an elegant pink and grey card.
I printed out a pink and grey paper, cut a square and embossed the left side with the Cuttlebug Textile folder. I then rubbed the raised areas with pink ink. I printed out the embellishments on both white and pink marbled paper and cut out the butterfly from the pink paper. I sponged it with embossing ink and embossed it with Crystal embossing powder for sparkle.
I cut a further strip of the pink and grey paper and trimmed both long edges with the Martha Stewart Scroll Lace Edge Punch (available from Polka Doodles). I then cut out the pink and white round doilies with a circle cutter and printed out a pink and white flower patterned paper and cut a circle the same size.
I cut a narrow strip of this paper and embossed the long edges of this and the circle edges with silver embossing powder. I assembled the card as you see, adding strips of pearls for further embellishment.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 23 May to link up your creations so good luck!

We've all been given some of Mia's new images to use and mine is the cute Rock Climbing Digital Stamp Set and here's what I made:

I made a gate fold card using a rock background paper which I made myself from a holiday photo of the inside of a cave. I experimented by using the poster option on Photoshop and was thrilled to bits when it turned the rocks gorgeous shades of purple, pink and green (the original was a rather boring brown!).
I printed out the cute little boy and girl climbers and the ropes in the set, coloured them with Promarkers and cut them out. I arranged them on one side of the gatefold and added text to the other.

I'm sure you'd like to know about the prizes and how to get them so here's the all important information:
Prize 1 ~  Drawn from random DT Members comments $20 Gift Certificate. All you need to do here is make sure you leave a comment on each of the blogs you visit to be in with a chance of winning this.

Polka Doodles Challenge - Summer Blossoms

Morning everyone, it's Polka Doodles time again and this week's theme has been chosen by Brenda. She would like you to use Summer Blossoms as your inspiration.
Most of the Design Team, including me, are once again using the gorgeous new All Around & Everywhere CD as we all love it so much.
I've again made an easel card but in a very different shape which I haven't seen anywhere else yet so read on if you'd like to know how I made it.
The flower shape here was made using the Nestabilities Blossom die set but the largest die was a bit small to make a card. I made a template by drawing round the largest one, scanning it into my computer and then adjusted the size so the shape will fit in a 15cm square envelope.
I did the usual thing to make the base by folding the card in half (I used a stripe embossed card for easier folding-by Southfield Stationers) and the drew round the template which was overlapping the fold a little to give a secure fold on the base. I cut a further shape for the front.
I inked all the edges of the card front and the base with pink ink for definition. I added a circle of green polka dot paper to both the card front and the base inking the edges before sticking with green ink.
Using the smallest Nestabilities Blossom die, I cut out some flowers from one of the papers which had rows of pretty pink flowers in circles. I decided the blossom shape is much more in keeping with Brenda's theme and the die was much easier than cutting all the flowers out!
I assembled the card by forming a garland with the flowers which I stuck on with foam tape. I added a sentiment, a butterfly from the CD with jewels on the wings, and finished the base with a punched strip and some pearls.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 16 May to upload your creations and you'll be pleased to see that we now have a new linking system where you can see small pics of all the entries.

The white rabbit has struck here again cos I'm late. late, late for the current Ready, Steady, Stamp Challenge which I've been trying to get finished for the last 10 days! As usual, there are 5 ingredients and if you use all 5, which I have, there's a fabulous chance to win a Paper Artsy prize kindly donated by Leandra.
Here's what I made which is a little piece of art on mountboard
I've actually used one of the new Paper Artsy Hot Pick stamp sets, HP1005, which I bought at Ally Pally along with the bird die from their fabulous new range of dies which match some of the hot pick stamps.
I've also used one of Hobby Art's fabulous new clear stamp sets CS013D Anna's Collection-Floral Greetings which has some gorgeous flowers and leaf sprigs.
I covered my mountboard with a piece of vintage music score I found in a charity shop and inked it with olive VersaColor ink. I stamped the grass from the Paper Artsy set twice in black on another piece of music score, cut it out and inked with violet and olive. I stuck this at the base of the panel.
I cut a piece of corrugated coffee cup holder, painted it light green and dry brushed on some white gesso. I then stamped a leaf sprig from the Hobby Art set all round the edges in black. I stamped the large flower 3 times on music score and the smaller one once. I inked these with pink and purple inks and cut them out.
I stamped the Paper Artsy bird in black, cut it out with the bird die and inked the white with purple ink. I then stamped song and bird, cut them out and inked them with pink ink. I printed out the computer generated music text, cut this out with scissors and scallop scissors and inked with pink.
For the rubber ingredient, I used a spare piece of red rubber from some unmounted stamps I recently cut out. I trimmed the lower edge with scallop scissors and inked it with olive green Stazon ink although the end result came out almost black.
I ssembled all the pieces as you see in the photo.

Flutterby Fairy

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and here in the UK we now have typical Bank Holiday weather as it's now wet and very windy.
I woke up this morning to find an email with the fabulous news that my AiFactory Baby Pram card was picked as one of five cards of the week at SNR Cardiverse and will be at the top of the card gallery for the next week. Really great news which is a lovely start to the week.
I've got a card to share with you today which was made from one of the lovely new Flutterby Fairy clear stamp sets from Polka Doodles which are really versatile as the fairy's wings are a separate design and can be used on their own as a butterfly.
The fairy I used is called Babsie and I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black then coloured her with Promarkers to fit my chosen colour scheme of orange and blue with a dash of red. I used Berry Red, Red, Carmine, Mango, Amber, China Blue, Cool Aqua, Sky Blue, Saffron and Dusky Pink.
I used the sketch from I love Promarkers which I do as I never used to like colouring until I discovered these.
The papers I used are from the new CD by Polka Doodles called All Around & Everywhere which came out just over a week ago on Create and Craft TV so you may be able to catch a repeat of the show if you haven't yet seen it.
I cut the circle and the scalloped circles using Nestabilities dies and added a sentiment from the CD, a flower altered to match with Garnet Twinkling H20 paint with a centre of a punched circle covered with a dome sticker and 2 small decorative dots also covered by dome stickers.
I'm entering this in the current challenge at I love Promarkers which is the above sketch and also at Incy Wincy Designs with a theme of Anything Goes.

White Rabbit

Morning all and I hope you've got better weather than here where it's been tipping down with rain.
I have a card to share with you that I made with the lovely white rabbit image shared by June for this week's Dezinaworld Challenge . It's slightly late like the rabbit as I've been really busy with family stuff.
I've used one of June's fabulous backgrounds here from the Mega Background Pack, called Old Cards, and well worth a look for the gorgeous artwork in the set. I printed mine out and inked a little with Raspberry and Topaz VersaColor cubes to add a bit more colour.
I then stamped the Hero Arts Large Harlequin Background S3413 in VersaFine Smoky Gray ink and cut out a diamond shape from the original rectangle. I inked it with Barn Door Distress ink. I coloured the rabbit in parts with Promarkers, cut him out and went round the edges with a grey colour to make him stand out more.
I assembled the card as shown using a mixture of double sided and foam tape for a 3D effect.
