First Christmas Card for 2016

I wiped my iPad of all my favourite challenge blogs by mistake and have had a lovely week reconstructing them thanks to the gals at Paper Playful listing challenge blogs on a daily basis.  So I have discovered new ones to 'case'.  Got my Promarkers out to colour up this really cute image only 3 shades used: Berry Red, Pear Green and Shale.


It's a nearly 6x6 inch card base, covered with two sheets of DP (designer papers) and embellished with die cuts by Joanna Sheen and Spellbinders Labels 31.  I took my time colouring in those cute woolly-hatted owls and look what I did....covered two of them up with the tag! I normally stamp on smooth 160g paper for my laser printer but this time I had scraps of cream 'hammered' card that I used instead - you can barely see the hammered effect to the bottom right of the stamped image.

I am entering the following challenges:

Card Recipe

  • Base card from the Factory Craft Shop in Ballymena, Northern Ireland
  • Ancient Designer Papers from my stash - I think one is from DCWV
  • Bow/ribbon die by Joanna Sheen
  • Dec 25th die also by Joanna Sheen
  • Spellbinders Labels 31 
  • Stamp is by Art Impressions Stamps

Maureen loves Elephants

A lovely colleague in work loves Elephants and I have only ever thought of using this Lili of the Valley rubber stamp for babies' cards!  One of the challenge blogs I visit on a weekly basis is a colour challenge and I'm always impressed by the participants and their use of colour, never dreaming of participating myself until this week......



Card Recipe:
  • Base card is from The Factory Craft Shop, Ballymena

Sweet Birthday

Sweet little birthday card for my stash inspired by a couple of challenges over the past week. It's been a week away from my card room [because it needs to be tidied up!] .... and the real reason is.....I simply wasn't in the mood for making cards!

  • The base card is a 14.5 x 14.5cm square card from the Factory Craft Shop, Ballymena.
  • The Designer Paper is a digi-download from Pink Petticoat (now closed!)
  • The digi-stamp is from Eureka stamps - I just bought it a week ago and should have plenty of uses for it.
  • The image is coloured using 2 Promarkers (Buttercup & Pear Green) and 1 other colour from a different company.
  • The Butterfly is an X-cut die being used for the first time - still in Art n Hobby shops.

Happy Halloween

The shops are stacked with Halloween goodies at the moment and there are tons of decorating ideas on Pinterest too.  So I was in the mood to create this card:


It's made on a Kraft card base and layered up with black card stock and dotty digi-paper.  The sentiment is computer generated and the spider and bat embellishments were purchased in one of my local discount stores.  I am entering the card into this week's Sassy Cheryl's challenge.

Card Recipe:

  • Image was purchased from Sassy Cheryl's digi shop - so handy - it is one of her pre-coloured images
  • Kraft and black card stock from stash
  • Dotty paper was purchased and downloaded from Pink Petticoat

CAS at the Eleventh Hour

I got my first order ever from Clearly Besotted Stamps this week and stamped the stamps and 'died' the dies and left it until 11pm to enter Stephanie's colour challenge with this card:


I used the grey as background and cut the balloons in mirri-card and chose to add the other colours in the challenge as little ribbon dicky-bows for the die-cut balloons.

Card Recipe:
  • Card stock from stash
  • Grey polka-dot paper from the 'Silent Night' paper pad by First Edition papers, purchased only this week from my local craft shop: Cottage Crafts
  • Balloons cut using the Balloons in a set of dies by Clearly Besotted Stamps and the sentiments are also by Clearly Besotted Stamps
  • Clear gems from stash 
  • Ribbons from a selection by Meiflower

A Sassy Special

I made this card to have in my stash - just in case!  Hopefully I won't have to use it for a good while.  

I have nearly come to the end of a 3-day tidy-up of my card room.  To the uncrafty eye it's still a bombsite, to me it's 90% organised (once the cupboard doors stay closed!!) - no photos of the still completely covered workdesk!   

There are enough Designer Paper pads in my stash to open a craft fair - but a girl just has to have the latest in Designer papers....  My next task is to get all my dies in the same place, then organise my stamps by category,  recycle my scraps, mess the desk all over again as soon as it has been cleared....

To keep me motivated I printed off a Sassy Cheryl image while I looked for suitable papers to take part in this week's challenge - Remembering Black & White Photos.


So sorry about the poor quality,  there is a new camera arriving for my husband this week, I may persuade him to show me how to take good pics of my cards to upload to my blog.

An Early Christmas Card

I am hoping to make all my own Christmas cards for this Christmas - I need 50 cards or thereabouts plus the odd one or two special order for the girls in work.  Wishful thinking?  Maybe not, thanks to Pinterest and challenge blogs!


So sorry about the quality of the photo, I uploaded it from my iPhone.  It's an entry for the current 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown challenge - use Red & Metallic Gold.  The base is red cardstock, a mat of gold card, a layer of red and white 'candycane effect' designer paper all tied up with red chiffon ribbon.  Papertrey Ink dies & stamps complete the card.

Card Recipe:
  • Red & gold cardstock from stash
  • Red chiffon ribbon purchased from Meiflower
  • Angel die and sentiment stamp purchased from Papertrey Ink

A Little Creativity Today

I am just back from a week's holidays with my husband.  We chose to do a driving holiday through Wales (briefly) and Cornwall.  I had a little list of craft shops I wanted to visit to pick up some much-needed (hah) supplies!

 

I bought SIX new paper pads, nearly the full collection of Spectrum Noir markers, some gorgeous colours in felt for die-cutting flowers with, some card magazines, and some stamps.  I had a little drool over the new papers before I unpacked the boring suitcases and then had to make an album for a special order I received before my hols.

I am entering my mini notebook that I make using my Bind-it-All machine into this week's Sassy Cheryl's - Anything but a Card challenge and the current Make-it-Monday challenge.

Card Recipe:
  • Notebook pages, front and back covers assembled using my Bind-it-All machine
  • Paper from the First Edition paper pad called 'New Bloom' purchased at the Hobbycraft store in Truro last week (I was in their shop three times)
  • Pre-coloured image purchased years ago from Sassy Cheryl website
  • Lime green ribbon to tie bows is from Meiflower

Cricut Joy

Yay I cut something with my Cricut!  It's nearly a year old and only been used half a dozen times!!  And.....two posts in one day.....my poor, poor blog....so neglected this year.

This is my 2nd Christmas card for 2012 and I am liking this one for using up scraps from the pile on my desk.  The most fiddly bit is threading the ribbon (I chose too thick a ribbon - but it fluffs up lovely behind and between the pennants!).  I might add more words like...Peace, Love & Joy...or Joy to the World when making this card again.  And I will try other colourways when I dig out other Christmas papers.



I am entering this card into these challenges:
Make It Monday - again!
365 Cards - Flagged
The Paper Shelter - Punch It

Card Recipe:
  • White card base from stash
  • White organza ribbon from Meiflower
  • 'JOY' cut from 'Home Decor & More Cricut cartridge
  • Banner is punched using a Stampin' Up punch 
  • Both designer papers are from the 'Noel' Dovecraft paperpad
 

First Christmas Card for 2012


My apologies for the poor photo - I took the photo on the run - I'm off out for a walk while the sun is shining.  I followed the sketch over at Sassy Cheryl's challenge blog and used a pre-coloured Sassy Cheryl's image on the card. 


To me, the black & white inked sentiment just doesn't look quite right so the next time I make this card I will get out my gold embossing powder....at least it will blend with the overall colour scheme.

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Sassy Chery's - Sketch
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Card Recipe:
  • White card base and gold card from stash
  • Both designer papers used are from a tiny Dovecraft paperpad called 'Noel'
  • Gold organza ribbon from Meiflower
  • Pre-coloured digi-image purchased from Sassy Cheryl's store

Ready for a Sentiment

Playing with all new purchases......love it!  You have to treat yourself while on holidays....right???  Well, I did!!  Any holiday we go by car usually means I have planned a craft shop visit...haha...don't tell hubby! 

Hubby and I were on holidays in  Northern Ireland last week for sightseeing and retail therapy of the outlet shopping kind, we had glorious weather, one of the best weeks of the year weather-wise I'd say.  We were so lucky.  So I usually have checked out Google Maps for the route and mentally taking note where I need us to take a detour ('honey, I think we should go this way, it's better' and 'can I just run in here for half an hour please?')....it works for us (me)!

Hello to the ladies in Forget-Me-Not Papercrafts in Belfast City,  I picked up some kraft cards and envelopes and 2 gorgeous DCWV paperstacks 'Mariposa' and 'Linen Closet' I was so lucky they were just being packed and had come in on special offer.  I nabbed some other bargains there too.  I used the kraft cards and 'Mariposa' papers on these cards:


When I came home, I got a phonecall from my local craft shop, Cottage Crafts, Craanford, to say that an order I had placed for Memory Box dies had come in for me and they are beautiful.  I used the 'Tropical Leaf' on both of the cards pictured above.  Then before I officially went back to work I placed an order with The Ribbon Girl for mainly felt, resin flowers (these are gorgeous) and button twine (of which I should have ordered double or triple the amount (it's fab too).  I made the flower buds on the cards with the felt and a Marianne die to make a rolled up flower. 


The rolled up flower looks and feels like velvet - I am so impressed with the felt and it only took a very small square to make it.

I am entering the cards into the following challenges:
Make It Monday: Anything Goes 
Little Red Wagon: Any Animal (I'm interpreting this as 'creature' I have butterflies on my cards)
The Paper Shelter: CAS (My card looks busy but it's only a sheet of DP, 3 flowers, a leaf and twine)

For the Hostess


I'm catching up with some girlfriends tonight and I never usually get a chance to make a card for the hostess but I had a chance to make this card - inspired by a few challenges:


The photo looks very fuzzy - my apologies.  I followed the sketch at CPS-Card Sketches sketch no 273 - Part 1 and the 'Let's Get Fruity' theme at House Mouse & Friends.  I am also entering the card into the Make It Monday no 97 challenge and the Papertake Weekly Challenge - 'Strawberries & Cream'.

Card Recipe:
  • Pearlescent card from stash
  • Striped and strawberry papers are from a DCWV paper pad called Nana's Nursery
  • Stamp is a House Mouse stamp called 'Love Bunny' and coloured with copics and promarkers
  • The 'thank you' sentiment was stamped with a 'Just Rite' font
  • Gems from stash

Feel Better Soon

It's been ages since I have entered a Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge and I am loving this week's sketch.  You will find the challenge here WMSC102.


I am in the middle of revamping my crafty space and am working out of two rooms in the process - not recommending this ever!  I can't find anything (not that I am a tidy person to begin with)!!!  But instead of opening storage boxes I am turning to my scraps and dies which is no bad thing for a crafter.

My card is so much cuter in person, soothing.....with a pop of colour. Very quick to assemble and it's a card easy to reproduce for any occasion by just changing the sentiments.

Check out The Paper Shelter challenge blog - they are having an 'Anything Goes' challenge this week - I am entering this card for their challenge too. And Cute Card Thursday's theme is 'Punch Drunk' - hope my PTI dies count!  Not forgetting either - the Moving Along with the Times challenge 'Lets Get Krafty'.  I use my Kraft card very sparingly as it is difficult to get where I live.


Card Recipe:
  • Embossed card base from the latest Docrafts 'goody bag'.  I bought mine at my local craft shop, Cottage Crafts, Craanford
  • Dotty scalloped shape is from the same 'goody bag' 
  • Sentiments are from the 'Frame It' set by Waltzingmouse Stamps
  • Two-layer flower and banners were cut using Papertrey Ink dies
  • Ribbon & paper rose from stash

With Love

I'm in love with little square cards at the moment - I bought a stash at the weekend in Birmingham - excellent quality too....  I am making up batches of these square cards for a Sunday market this weekend and hopefully they will appeal to the shoppers.


I am entering the card into a challenge over at Eat Sleep Stamp - loving the sketch - thanks Tracy.

Card Recipe:
  • Card blank from Anna Marie Designs
  • Backing paper is actually wrapping paper from M&S
  • Image is by Penny Black
  • Ribbon from stash
  • Sentiment is computer generated

 

Spring into Summer

Feels like summer is not very far away here in Wexford at the moment.  We have had a fantastic, sunny weekend and more fine weather on the way for the rest of the coming week....really puts you in a good mood!

I am just back from a major shopping trip in Birmingham - mega card-making bargains filled my suitcase (just made it inside the luggage allowance - TG) and spent all day yesterday making cards like this one:


I am entering this card into the Creative Stamp Friends - 'Spring' challenge.

Keeping it Simple

Get on over to Mojo Monday.  Sketch no 226 is a real keeper.  I had my square card made so quickly that I now want to try a round version (or maybe make a round topper to have for another card).

My card doesn't have a sentiment and please believe me that 'in person' it doesn't need one.  It is one for my stash to send a 'thinking of you' message inside.  The brown glitter really sparkles - even thought it looks so dull in the photo.


I have had this little birdie image stamped and glittered for years and sitting in front of me for inspiration with two of his brothers with turquoise and brown dots.  I will have to search for the stamp set again and do a repeat.  I am not usually a 'pastels' fan but I will hold on to this card for as long as possible - yum!

Card Recipe:
  • Scalloped card blank from stash
  • Designer paper on top is from a Forever Friends Black & Gold stack
  • Beige & white swirls paper was purchased at a pick 'n' mix paper stand at a craft fair
  • Bird stamp I have since 2008 - picked up in Walmart possibly - not 100 percent on that one
  • Ribbon from stash

 

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Another of my favourite challenges I love to browse for inspiration, and I love Kath Stewart's work especially (her blog is one of the first I discovered on the 'net').  And again, it's another challenge I don't usually enter even with all the PB stamps I now own - shame on me!!!

For challenge no 186 the theme is floral frenzy - how wonderful.  I kept my card fairly simple, a square patch of floral patterned paper and the hedgie is holding a bunch of flowers which I Glossy Accented.  To finish off I cut the edges of the striped card with decorative scissors, added a trim punched with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and the branch was cut with my Cricut (Christmas pressie from hubby)


Check out the other Design Team member's samples - they are simply wonderful.  Ideal to kick-start lazy mojos!!!

Card Recipe:
  • Scalloped card blank from stash
  • Designer paper & striped paper also from stash
  • PB Hedgie is from one of the Transparent sets
  • Image coloured with Promarkers
 

It's Pretty Pink

I had the most fun stamping by the fire on Saturday evening.  My go-to challenge after work on Saturday is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge even though I don't enter it.  I have no excuse because I now have a few of Claire's stamp sets to my name.

I am always so impressed by the DT's samples each week and this week was no different.  I chose to follow in the steps of Kelly Schirmer and create my own designer paper using tiny Waltzingmouse stamps.


I just 'went' for it.  I started by distressing the edge of a white square of card with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.  I was a bit heavy-handed first time around so I flipped the card blank over and this was my 'barely distressed' effort.  Wow Aged Mahogany hardly needs to touch the card to colour it - this was the effect I got around the edge with a very dry sponge!  

I used a tiny 'berry' 'dot' from the WM Festive Foliage set - first time this little 'dot' was inked.  I used a strong pink from a Color Box Chalk ink stack stamped it with the fresh coat of ink and stamped it again before i re-inked it the next time around.   (If I had time I would have loved to have added Glossy Accents to the 'polka dots' not covered by the topper for an extra effect.  Instead I went on to make some more designer sheets in different colourways.)  The next tiny stamp I used was the one you see stamped in black - from the WM You're Lovely set.  And lastly, the tiny trio of stars that I used is from the WM Christmas Cottage set.

To finish off I kinda followed the sketch with a top scalloped border cut with a Martha Stewart Punch,  tied some chiffon ribbon round the top and added a topper stamped from the WM You're Lovely set again.  Sentiment to be added later - this card is for my crafty stash.

Card Recipe:
  • Scalloped square card base from stash
  • Background card created using Distress Ink and WM stamps
  • Ribbon from Meiflower

 

Refreshing Colours ....

....for a Spring-like challenge at There She Goes challenge blog.  They have provided a fab photo as inspiration using 'put you in a good mood colours' in my opinion.  Here is my card:

 
And to give my card more than one outing in a challenge today I am also entering it into 'A Passion for Papertrey'  - inspired by a book challenge - loosely I am basing my card on Cecelia Ahern's 'PS I Love You' book where the main female character gets pieces of mail from her dead husband beginning with a milestone birthday message???!!!!

Card Recipe:
  • Main image is one of the Friendship jar fillers (being used without the jar) by Papertrey Ink and coloured using only 4 Promarker shades - Antique Pink, Cocktail Pink, Grass and Pine.
  • I also used one of Papertrey's ric-rac border dies to cut a strip of white card stock to go across the card
  • The pink background I can't accredit - my apologies, my aunt was having a clear out of crafty stash and she gave me tons of loose 12 x 12 papers.
  • The green 'print-effect' background paper is one by Stampin' Up
  • Also in the picture is a music-score embossed card - made using a Cuttlebug folder

A Digi Snowman

A very quick card to put together - very little colouring involved.  I am going to make a couple more of these.  Tonight I have a marathon card-making session ahead of me, eight cards being collected tomorrow all different! All for the same lady for her family and kids - whew I am yawning and it's only 8pm........!


Digital Tuesday Challenge has a 'Winter Wonderland' theme running for a few weeks so I am entering the card in that challenge.  And Tiddly Inks has a White Christmas theme as their last challenge for the year - go and drool over the DT samples. Over at the ABC challenge blog their theme is 'F' for Frosty - so another place to enter the card.

Card Recipe
  • Backing papers are last season's collection by 'Docrafts' I think called Poinsettia???? My apologies for not being exactly clear.
  • Digi-stamp is by Tiddly Inks
  • Chiffon ribbon was purchased from Meiflower

A Busy Elf

That's my excuse!!!  I didn't drop off the face of the earth or anything.  I have been working 'round the clock' making cards and because I have been so busy my craft room is a tip and I hate working in a messy room.  

When the evenings have been cold I crafted by the fire at a fold up table with craft supplies piled up around me.  Hubby cleaned up the kitchen for me this morning while I put my crafty supplies back in 'their room'.  He also left me to finish off these four cards because I was delivering them today! 


I shamelessly 'cased' a card made by Jean Martin here - it's the one on the front left-hand side of the photo.  I had this set of Waltzing Mouse stamps in my stash unopened for many, many months and then I saw Jean's card and 'stole' her Mistletoe element/topper - please forgive me Jean and thank you for a kick up in the Mojo dept.

A Cute Moose Card

First Holiday card for 2011 - I am determined to create a stash of Christmas cards to have ready for sale - no late nights making cards for me if we get a winter like we did last year!


I was too late to enter last week's Colour Create challenge because blogger was too slow to load for me this afternoon but not to worry the card is made and I have a couple of other challenges I can enter it into. Cute Card Thursday's challenge just finishing is 'Animal Crackers' so I am entering 'Moosey' in that challenge.

Card Recipe:
  • White base card from stash and the papers are all scraps from my scrap 'boxes'
  • The pre-coloured digi-stamp is by Sassy Cheryl
  • The sentiment is computer-generated
  • The snowflakes were punched using a Tonic punch
  • I dotted Diamond 'Stickles' here and there in places on the card - not clearly visible from the photo I'm afraid
Thanks for looking xxx

Don't leave it as long as I did!!

Nearly two months without a blog post how very lazy of me.... I don't even have kids as an excuse not to post over the summer (what summer?) months!!! Got out of the habit and found it very difficult to get back into it.  Even my craft room is feeling unloved - it is very, very messy indeed - so messy that I'm turning to the ironing instead of crafting......

Found an 'Anything Goes' challenge to get me back in the mood for card-making and blog-posting this week.  It's over at the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog.  Here is my card:


Card Recipe:
  • Backing paper is possibly a freebie, if not, it's from a CD.  The sheet has been hanging around for months waiting to be used on a card - apologies to the Designer for me not being able to credit them!!
  • Baby with blanket is a stamp by Lili of the Valley the Hedgie Baby is from a transparent set by Penny Black
  • Shapes were cut using 'Nesties' and a Papertrey Ink die (banner)
  • Sentiments were computer-generated
  • And the craft card I used is by Papertrey Ink

Mojo Monday - Time for another sketch

 

Today I am lucky enough to have a clean house (thanks hubby) so I can spend the day in my card-room.  I was waiting for the Mojo sketch 199 to load up so I could get cracking.

Very easy layout so the question was how to decorate.  At the moment, the collection of paper stacks I own is quite decent so the worst thing is having to choose from so many lovely papers!  I had spent a day last month doing some die-cutting in order to have a stash built up - so handy when time is short.  A very quick card to put together and it looks more elegant in person.  Hope the lady in question likes it!

Card Recipe:
  • White card blank from stash
  • Both papers I used came from a Prima Marketing paper stack called 'Sweet Fairy'
  • Purple ribbon purchased from Meiflower
  • Dies by Spellbinders (blossom) and Papertrey Ink (dressform) and Cuttlebug (butterfly)
