Mo Manning Sheepdog Christmas Card

Today's card is a Mo Manning Digi Download.  It is called Shep.  I have coloured him in with Promarkers and then decorated with die cut snowflakes covered in glass glitter.  The backing paper is from a really old HOTP pad I had from QVC years ago and the sentiment is from another old QVC Christmas kit.

30th Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for a friend at work for us all to sign.  It was her 30th so wanted to make it a bit special.  

All coloured in with Promarkers and stickles glittter.

Added white flowers, coloured in with Promarkers to co-ordinate with the papers, thing it worked out ok!

Papers are DCWV, stamp from Lili of the Valley, wording from computer and flowers I think were Doohickey (Magnolia die).

LOTV Glamorous Gardening Birthday Card

I made this card for my Mother in Law on her birthday last month.  It was a pretty simple card to make, but I knew she would love it.

It is a LOTV Glamorous Gardening stamp coloured with Promarkers.  I layered her onto some really old papers I had, no idea where from though, sorry.  I then found a flower that I had taken off a card a friend had made me (and I just couldn't waste it) which I put on as bit of decoration.

Meerkat Birthday Boy Card

Here is my second Meerkat card.  This is using exactly the same image, just coloured differently.  This time I have used my new Bo Bunny New Home paper pad, it is just gorgeous.

I then used a Marianne Designs die which I cut diagonally and placed behind the main design and punched out a border twice and put behind the image along with a length of ribbon.

A sentiment coloured over with my Promarkers and a couple of buttons finishes it off.

Simples - A Meerkat Autumnal Card

This is a download - no idea where I got it, as had it ages.  As Meerkats are so on trend at the moment I decided to make a couple of cards with them.  Here is the first of them.

I have had a clear out recently and found a Cuttlebug die which included these fabulous leaves, used alongside my new Bo Bunny Fall papers was just perfect.

I also recently went to a Craft Shop closing down sale and picked up the metallic corners which have little pumpkins on them - fab.

A very simples! card if I do say so.

Autumnal Tree Card

My Mum gave me this stamp as she no longer does stamping, sorry no idea the make (will need to get it back out and have a look).  I stamped it in deep brown and distressed around the edges.  Didn't really want to do anything else to it as seemed a nice clean autumnal scene.  I then layered it onto some gorgeous new Bo Bunny Fall papers and then put a splash of wide brown chiffon ribbon around each corner and a few gems to finish it off.

Sweet Blossom, Wee Suzi Birthday Card

This card is made using a digistamp from Weestamps.  The design is Sweet Blossom with Wee Suzi.  It is coloured in with Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens.

I layered the picture onto a little 6x6 Magnolia sheet, which I have had for ages just didn't want to use as so pretty.  I then had some DCWV sticky backed ribbon which I put down flat and then layered another lot on top but folded.

Penny Black - Horse and Bucket Birthday Card

Here is a cute Penny Black stamp with a little pony and a robin on the bucket handle.

It is as usual, coloured in with Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens and then lots of stickles on the ponies mane.

The backing papers are Wild Rose Studio and the sentiment is a really old one I have, not sure where from.

Saturday, 8 October 2011

Forever Friends Birthday Card

This is a very simple card using simply a piece of Forever Friends paper layered onto a card.  Stickles put onto the present and some sticky ribbon rope around the edge.  I then stamped a LOTV sentiment on the same patterned paper and layered this onto a punched scallop round.

Perfect for a really quick but effective card.

Rocking Horse Baby Cards - Girl and Boy

Here are a pair of rocking horses I made as baby cards.

The rocking horse was a free download from Beccys Place, where you can find amazing images that Beccy draws herself.

These were coloured in with Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens and then the pink one had Wild Rose Studio papers and the purple one had DCWV Nanas Nursery papers.

Both were then finished off with a LOTV sentiment and some ribbon and gems/pearls.

Mo Manning Sheep Dog Birthday Cards

Here is a fantastic digistamp from Mo Manning Digital Pencil Too.  It was a single dog which I then printed again and flipped the design so it appears the dogs are together.  It actually was a Christmas image but I coloured it in as you can see with no sign of Christmas.

LOTV Girl with Feather Boa - Happy Birthday

Here is a LOTV stamped card.  I coloured in with Promarkers and MArvy Le Plume pens and then put lots of glossy accents on the feather boa and topped this with German Glass Glitter and a little sprinkle of Jones Tones glitter.  The photo does not really do the boa justice.

I then topped it off with a LOTV sentiment and a flower die cut behind it and some Wild Rose Studio papers in the background.

I am entering this one in the latest LOTV candy giveaway competition.

Molly Bloom Camper Van - Birthday Card

Here is a Molly Bloom Camper Van card which I made recently for a friends birthday.

The image is coloured in using Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens and glossy accents added to the windscreen, headlights and side windows to make them look like glass.

The backings papers are part of a huge DCWV set I have.  Sorry it doesn't have a name on it.  It came in a set of drawers from QVC years ago,

This is all mounted onto a some blue bazzill card with a bit of plain satin ribbon down the edge.

As it is a boy card, didn't want to add anymore embellishments.

Here is a lovely pink and brown card I made for my Grandma.

The main image is a LOTV stamp called Emma's Pot Plant, which was coloured in using Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens.  A smattering of glitter was added with Stickles.

I then used the LOTV sentiment stamps and a scalloped circle to back it onto.

I mounted all the above onto some HOTP Disney Princess papers and punched out some flowers to add definition, with a little pearl in the middle of them.

Here is a card I made at the recent show in Harrogate when my Mum and I went to one of the Craftwork Cards classes.

LOTV Christmas Dance Card

Here are a couple of similar cards I made earlier in the week when my friends and I had a Christmas crafting day.  Unfortunately I only managed to make 2 cards, they made 8 cards and a whole heap of tags, what was I playing at!!

Anyway the stamp is the LOTV Christmas Dance which has been colouredi n Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume and then the background paper is a My Minds Eye.  I have then used the deep snowflake punch border from Martha Stewart to finish the background and, really hard to see, but the LOTV Christmas Sentiment.

Wonders of Christmas - Goat Christmas Card

Here is another Christmas Card, again from the Dawn Bibby Kanban range, called Wonders of Christmas.  You can find some of this range here or Wins often has similar things at Foilplay.

This is mounted onto some spotty glitter card and some little corners that came on the topper sheet.  Along with a co-ordinating tag.  A ribbon bow with diamante in the middle finishes it off.

A very simple and quick card, but so fun to make, especially when you know how many cards you need for Christmas

Pink Rocking Horse - Baby Girl Card

Here is a lovely digi image I downloaded from a fantastic blog Beccy's Place  Well worth a visit.  Beccy has some amazing designs, card samples, card templates, etc etc.

The actual digi sample is here Rocking Horse Rocker Card

I have made a few similar to these, which I will put on here over the coming weeks.  I sat and made 4 new baby cards covering girls and boys.

The background paper is a lovely 6x6 Magnolia butterfly paper that I bought.  Should have bought 2 as 1 6x6  sheet just isn't enough to really do a card justice.

The sentiment is a good old LOTV one.  Where would we be without these.  A lovely thick velvet ribbon knotted in the corner just finishes it.  I just couldn't manage to do a bow with this ribbon, so a knot would have to do.

Molly Bloom Camper Van - Birthday Card

Here is today's offering.

The card is made from some really nice Bazzill Basics blue card and then layered up with DCWV papers and another piece of Bazzill, punched with an X Cut doilies punch.

The coloured image is a Molly Bloom and is the small Camper Van image which is coloured in using Promarkers and Marvy Le Plume alcohol pens.

I adore this stamp and find it so useful for all men cards - from small boys to the older gentleman.

Wonders of Christmas - Doggie Christmas Cards

Today's cards are a cute pair of Christmas cards using Dawn Bibby's own design, Wonders of Christmas, I think, was the name of the set.    This is using the toppers, sentiments and backing card from the set.  The only addition I made to it was a couple of pieces of ribbon from a Cosmo Cricket set that I had.

Similar toppers can be found on the Foilplay site, which is brilliant and postage is really quick and free for orders of £5.

LOTV Bear and Butterflies - Happy Birthday Card

Today's card is a LOTV Bear and Butterflies stamp which is called in with Promarkers and then some stickles added to the butterflies.

I layered this up onto some My Minds Eye papers, including a cute border.

The sentiment was a LOTV Happy Circular Sentiments stamped onto the same My Minds Eye papers.

I didn't put any ribbon or gems on this card as I am planning on using it to give to a boy.

LOTV Milly with Sunflower - 1st Birthday Card

The photo is terrible for this one, but I loved the design so had to include it.

LOTV Little Girls Swing Time = Blank Card

Here is a lovely LOTV stamped image, Little Girls Swing Time

I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and distressed around the edge with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.

The backing paper is from Scribble Scrabble and is called Funky Flowers and Dots, this was bought from Sirstampalot.  The paper is double sided so only used half a sheet.  There is also a small piece of Tim Holtz coredinations card used at the bottom.

The bottom two rows are punched with an XCut doily punch and layered on top of each other.

A couple of gems and some organza ribbon finish this off.

Sunday, 28 August 2011

Owl Birthday Card

Here is a really simple card, using an Owl image.  Unsure where it came from as was in my batch of already stamped up images that I do now and then.

I simply layered this coloured image onto a DL card with a ribbon on the background and a sentiment.

Will be adding this to my box of cards for our local Village Hall/Church event.

Penny Black - Horse and Bucket Penny Black

I made this card for my Brother to give to his wife.  She adores horses and I thought this was a pretty nice stamp from Penny Black.

Magnolia Tilda and Edwin Skating - Christmas Card

Here is another Christmas card I made using the Magnolia Tilda and Edwin skating.  I coloured it in traditional colours using my Promarkers.  Tomorrow I will add a card using the same stamp but different colours, which looks sooooo different.

LOTV Fairies Bouquet - Birthday Card

Here is a card I made for a commission.  It is using the LOTV Fairies Bouquet stamp coloured with Promarkers and glittered with Jones Tones.  The paper in the background is a DCWV paper from the Garden Party set.  A ribbon strip and bow with a computer generated sentiment finishes this card off.

Tuesday, 23 August 2011

Magnolia Edwin Footballer - Birthday Card

Here is a Magnolia card I made using a stamp from the Summer Stamp Club.  I coloured Edwin in with Promarkers.  This was all stamped onto the new QVC TSV Kanban matting and layering cards, which make life so simple.

I then used DCWV papers in the background which were distressed a little around the edges.  A couple of pearls finished it off.

Again didn't want to put too much on it as it for a boy and I just can't put ribbons on them.

Sunday, 21 August 2011

Kira with Flowers - Birthday Card

Here is a card I made with the Wild Rose Studio Kira with Flowers stamp that I bought from Sir Stampalot in the early summer.  I have used some Nitwit papers in the background and a LOTV sentiment with a double ribbon bow on top.

Kanban Decoupage Teenager Birthday Card

Here is one of my Kanban decoupage topper cards.  It is the teenager playing with the remote control - like all teenagers do!!

The backing papers are DCWV and have been slightly distressed with Tim Holtz inks and all added to a Hunkydory silk card and I printed some words off the computer to finish it off.

Fairly simple but I find I prefer this style for boys cards.

Thursday, 18 August 2011

Penny Black - Cat and Mouse Birthday Card

Here is another Penny Black Cat and Mouse Card.  I so love this stamp and it is so easy to colour in.

I have used Promarkers, as usual, to colour the image in and distressed the edge with Tim Holtz inks.  The papers I think were Nitwit ones and the sentiment is from LOTV.  A bit of ribbon and some pearls finish this off.

Penny Black - Cow in Bikini Card

Todays card is a Penny Black stamp of a cute black and white Friesian cow in a bikini - definitely different.  This was coloured in with Promarkers and then edged with Platinum stickles.  A couple of flowers layered up with a Kanban sentiment and splash of ribbon finished this off.  The background papers were Wild Rose Studio.

Tuesday, 16 August 2011

Kanban Butterfly Stamped Engagement and Blank Card

These two cards were both made using a Kanban QVC TSV stamp, stamped onto black card using Versamark and then Perfect Pearls silver brushed over the top to get this special effect.  I kept them both very simple using black, white and silver only.  

My First Christmas Card of 2011 - Magnolia Tilda Merry Christmas

This is a very simple Magnolia Tilda Merry Christmas card that I made last week.  This is the first card I have made so far this year, only about another 100 or so to go.  Really need to get going with these.

This stamp is the Tilda Merry Christmas and is coloured in with Promarkers and then layered onto My Minds Eye Christmas papers and a Santa Hat and ribbon added on the side.  A bit of Stickles on the top just finishes it off.  This is quite a simple styled card as I have to admit, by the time I had finished colouring in the fiddly Merry Christmas banner that Tilda is carrying I had pretty much had enough of the card.

LOTV Bunny with Balloon - On Your Birthday Card

Here is a lovely LOTV Bunny with Balloon stamped card, along with a LOTV sentiment.  These are so easy to work with and look so good when finished.
