Kraftin' Kimmie's sketch challenge

I really really do still have a massive Kraftin' Kimmie addiction so couldn't resist colouring this beauty up. It has taken me ages to finaly use her but I think she is so pretty.
This weeks challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie is a great sketch....

 

I have coloured Rose with promarkers andthen cut her out using spellbinders lables die. The papers have a fabric texture to them and are from First Editions Floral Pavilion pack, the sentiment is from Whimsy's Ticket notes set and the gems and ribbon is from my stash.

I am back!! :D

Well I have fallen off the blogging planet for ages but I think I am now back. 
I want to say a massive thank you to all the incredibly talented ladies that came to the crafty weekends the last 2 weekends. I had such a great time and feel all inspired. We made a record number of creations and I hope you all had as much fun as I did.
Here is the first of my creations a boys card. It is time for another Natalie and Amy challenge and we want you to make something for a man or boy. I just couldn't resist these adorable stamps and I coloured them up with my promarkers...
I have used the following goodies from the shop Kraftin' Kimmie's Cute-a-saurus stamps, Whimsy fun life tickets 2, 5 x 5 card blank, First editions blank canvas papers.
I thought I would go for a different shape of card for a change as well so chopped the corner off my 5x5 card.


I am also entering this card for the following challenges:

 Now onto this months challenge we want you to create something in mono :D I LOVE my colours so this is always a challenge for me.
For my card this time I have used 6 x 6 Kraft card, Spellbinders resplendent rectangles, Hansa Yellow pan pastel  that are all available in our shop. The main image is from Local King Rubber stamps and there were a few happy acciendts involved in the making of this card. First I stamped my image and die cut him then put the lid from the ink pad on him so got a mark at the side :( Not to be defeated I then made some more similar marks all the way round and added the panpastel to give it a more worn effect. Trouble is then I went to seal the pastel with hair spray but grabbed the spray and sparkle but accident so they endded up sparkley! Despite all of that I quite like this card and I even like the sparkle lol.

Marianne's Design Divas put out the banners and bunting

This month our challenge over at Marianne's Design Divas is to have banners or bunting on your project. I though I would take the chance to do something different so made some bunting rather than my normal card :D

 I have used a whole load of marianne D stuff for these so I will let you know which I have used for each seperate one. The papers though are all from the dark vintage pack and all the indivdual bunting main shapes are made using petra's small ovals dies.

 For this first one I have used Tiny flower 3 that I have paper pieced and then I cut the butterflies out in black and folded their wings up to give it a more 3d look. 

 I have cut the main bird out twice to give it a bit of a shadow effect and then stuck it in front of the cage on some foam pads so it stands out. 


And last but not least I have paper pieced my tree die, the house and bird at the bottom are from THIS die set. The little bird in the tree is HERE and the grass is from THIS set.
