Sarah Kay Autumnal Card

I made this card in the Autumn, just never got round to showing it on here.  This a very difficult and fiddly stamp to colour in butI think it is quite impressive when finished.

I coloured the card in with Promarkers and then added some beautiful Bo Bunny autumn papers to the background.  I layered all up on a golden card and added a couple of pumpkin metal corners, a LOTV sentiment and some gorgeous satin edged chiffon ribbon.

Purple Harlequin Blank Card

I fancied doing something a bit different recently so had a look through a friends stamps and found these two harlequin co-ordinated stamps, sorry no idea of the make.

I stamped the masked man onto the card and literally coloured him in in one colour with my Promarkers.  I then distressed around the edges with my Stampin Up purple pad.  I then stamped the harlequin checkered design onto a large sheet of white card which measured slight higher and a lot wider than my cut out image and stamped at the edge.  I then cut around the design and marked up on a card where this would sit.  I then stamped the same image directly onto the card and then added the image topper to it all. I am very impressed with the overall design and think it works well.

I also stamped the checkered design down one side of the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking

Selection of Carousel Pony Cards

Here are a selection of carousel ponies that I made using a fantastic free set of drawings from Beccys Place, she now has a shop which is just amazing.

The images were all coloured in with Promarkers and then the background papers were from an old set of Wild Rose Studios spotty papers.  The round sentiments are all LOTV and the Thank You one, I just have no idea where it came from, but is really pretty.  A few flowers and/or ribbon just finish it off.

Fizzy Moon Teddy Bear with Bouquet Birthday Card

Here is a Fizzy Moon birthday card I made using DCWV papers, layered on up Bazzill Basics cardstock.  I then stamped Fizzy Moon and coloured him in with Promarkers.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and then numerous flowers and leaves were punched out and layered on top.  A splash of ribbon across the bottom just finishes it off.

Mum's Birthday Card - Bright

A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her Mum and her is what I did.  I really wasn't sure about it as just a bit too bright for my liking, but she loved it.

The stamp is a Docrafts one and is layered up on one of the Kanban Stackers sheets.  These two things are a lifesaver when trying to do a card quick.

I then die cut the flowers from co-ordinating papers and layered up on a piece of DCWV paisley paper.  I then found a sheet of butterflies and added on onto the final design.

Kanban Rose Stamped Sympathy Card

I just adore this stamp.  It is one from a set of Kanban stamps, and is a really good large size.  The card I made is actually almost A5 in size, which shows the size of the stamp.

I coloured the stamped image with Promarkers and then layered up on some very old papers I found, seem to think they are K&Co.

I printed the sentiment off on the printer and then distressed it all with Tim Holtz distress inkpads.

Seems to all work well, which is pretty hard to achieve, in my opinion, for a sympathy card.

Mo Manning - Mum to Be Card

Here is a Mum to Be card for my friend Jennie.  This was made in an 8x8" style so that everyone at work could sign it.

The picture is called Mother to Be from Mo Manning and is a digital stamp so can be resized to the card you want to make, which is fab for making larger cards.  This was then coloured in with Promarkers.

The papers are from a DCWV Pad, Nanas Nursery I think, accompanied with some flourishes and flowers.

LOTV Glamorous Gardening Happy Birthday Card

Welcome back to me.  I haven't posted recently as spent a lot of time playing with my Stampin Up products, which are on a separate blog.

Anyway here goes......

This is a LOTV stamp, Glamorous Gardening, which is coloured in with Promarkers.  The papers used are from My Minds Eye, sorry don't know the name of them.  This was all layered up and an old sentiment stamp used with a double flower punched out of the same paper (Martha Stewart punch).
