Christmas Card - O Christmas Tree


This is my last card as guest designer for Crafts 4 Eternity, and I've really enjoyed the experience.  This week we had to follow the sketch and include a Christmas tree.  I don't have a Christams tree stamp so I used an old Sizzix die which I've had for years.  The stamped image is from the Lilli Of The Valley set 4 Merry Christmas, which I've coloured with Pro markers with  glittter added to the hat and coat. 
Sorry this is short post I slept in this morning and I've a bit of catching up to do.

Best Friends Card


I made this card yesterday for the fun of it, plus I needed a break from the quilt I am making.  The stamp I've used is called 'Purrfect Playmates' from Sugar Nellie which  I've coloured  with Pro markers.  The circle is cut from a Nestablilites Scallop die, the hexagon  I cut free hand, I then stamped the edges with stamps from a Tapestry set called Floral Filigree Wreath, which I further enhanced with scribbles of glitter and gold gel pen.  To finish I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink Tattered Rose.  The heart decoration I made some time ago from scrap paper gold leaf, gem and glitter. Scrolls and Prima flowers finish the card.  Moving Along With The Tmes Challenge is being sponsered by Letraset where there a some very nice prizes.

 A date for your crafting diary  on November 27th  10am-2pm I will be demonstrating how I colour with  Pro markers at Crafty Bunch, Ketley, Telford.  Telephone Sue 01952 872067 for more details.

Spooky Halloween Treat Bag


Hi all, this weeks challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity is Spooky, follow the sketch and recipe with the chance to win Halloween Bingo Card digital stamps.
I'm not really into Halloween so I found the recipe difficult, I could not think of a single reason why I would make a card for this event, so decided that my best option was to create a treat bag, and once I got into the swing of it I really enjoyed creating it, I used digital stamps from Crafts 4 Eternity to decorate the bag.  All I have to do now is fill it with a few teeth rotting goodies and my job as wicked witch of the midlands is done cackle, cackle.

Simply Gorgeous Tilda card


October has been a great month for me in regards to card challenges, I think my card making must showing signs of improvement as I'm thrilled to say I've won and been placed as top three etc for some of this months challenges. 

I thought it was time to bring out another Tilda stamp and this little lady is gorgeous and one of my favourites, that is until another little beauty hits the shops.  I've coloured Tilda with Pro Markers and edged her hat with gold glitter.  The centre circle is made from parchment, the design for this I adapted from a Victorian white work pattern.  The flowers and butterfly are Prima which I've further enhanced with gold glitter, although like most photographs it doesn't show up that well.  I've used the sketch from Magnolia Down Under.  Hope you like and thank you for stopping by I appreciate all visitors and comments.

White Christmas C4E Sketch and Recipe


I've been busy this week  sewing or more to the point getting to know my new sewing machine and quilting and so far everything is going together OK, usually with patchwork etc it doesn't.  So this week my work table is covered in fabric and not paper.  
Getting back to paper crafts I made this card as GDT this week  for Crafts 4 Eternity where we had to use a sketch and a recipe using  white, with  the theme 'White Christmas'.  I love working with white and for this card I dry embossed a grid on the background and used an embossing folder to emboss the center strip.  The image is another stamp from Lili of the Valley set #4 Merry Christmas, which I've stamped onto a layered scallop circle nestabilities and coloured with Pro markers.  Ribbon completes the card.  This week Crafts 4 Eternity are being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments where you can win a really cute digital.
Hope you like

Crafts 4 Etermity All that Glitters


Hi peeps, this is my second entry as GDT for Crafts 4 Eternity.  The  theme is All that Glitters using sketch S#105.  To make this card I used a LOTV stamp from  set #1 'Oh So Girlie'  I love these stamps they are so cute and a joy to work with.  I've coloured the fairy with Pro markers and glittered the edges of the skirt and wings.  I've layered Nestabilities half scallops to the outer edges of the circular card and further decorated the scallops with button discs.  Prima flowers and ribbon complete this card.

Pretty in Pink Tilda


It's been a  funny few days, I went to a craft show at the weekend stocked up on a few bits and pieces which added up to more than I had intended to spend, nothing unusual there,except to say the show was uninspiring and heavens above boring, since then I've had no inclination to do any crafting or painting in fact I felt like giving everything away and never doing anything creative again, pretty scary for someone who likes to create on a daily basis, today I decided to tidy up the craft table and clear out any Gremlins that might just have been lurking and found the old mojo hidden in my Promarker drawer.  Oh joy!  I'm back to crafting. 

For this card I've used this months CLP challenge sketch, I've used Promarkers to colour the images, the background garden scene is a digital stamp from Squiggle Fly, which I layered over a sky background which I've coloured with various inks.  Flowers, lace, glitter and gems  complete the card.
Hope you like and thank you for stopping by Kathleen

Wacky Weather -Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge Recipe 53


I was thrilled to have won the GDT position for October with Crafts 4 Eternity.  As always happens when  working to a deadline something always happens that puts a screw in the works and this morning for some reason I was unable to up load my picture it took a few attempts before windows stopped closing my connection. 
 The theme this week is Wacky Weather using a sketch recipe #53 For this card I've used a stamp from Lili of the Valley set#1 'Oh so Girlie which I've coloured with Promarkers.  For the background I've used various inks and handmade masks to create the landscape and as the theme is Wacky Weather I decided to try and create the feeling of a warm balmy day . I've used various pattern papers, lace, ribbon and flowers to complete  the card.
