Louise bling



   The theme of the first 2018 Crafty Cardmakers challenge is blings the thing.
   I have used a Scruffy Little Cat stamp from the Louise set and coloured the majority of it using Spectrum Noir pens. I also made use of an old makeup set I have and used blusher on the cheeks, eye shadow on the eyelids and lipstick on the lips and lipstick. I added clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to the lipstick holder, bottle top and puff, gems to the centre of all the flowers and used Liquid Pearls for the spots on the bottle and the beads.
   I then matted and layered the design onto glitter card, mirri and white card. Using a Tattered Lace die I cut the sentiment from glitter card.

I wrapped ribbon round the lower right hand corner, attached three card candi to it and then matted and layered it onto mirri, paper printed using a My Craft Studio CD ROM, another layer of mirri and finally white card.

Happy baking


   This image coloured using Promarkers was printed using the Daisy and Friends CD ROM, a disc which I bought several years ago. I matted and layered it onto biscuit coloured card, red core'dinations cardstock and white card. The embellishments were cut from white card using dies from Tattered Lace's Her Apron set, coloured using Promarkers and slightly shaped before attaching them to the card using glue gel. The sentiment is a black peel off.

   My nephew, who is a keen tennis player, celebrated his twenty first birthday at the beginning of the month so I used several sheets of an image from Hunkydory's Little Book of Sports and Games to make a decoupaged card for him.

Popcorn romance

   I have dug out my Popcorn the Bear stamps and intend to give them a fresh airing. This is the first of these and is from the romance set. I coloured it using Promarkers and then wrapped satin ribbon round two opposite corners before matting and layering it onto light brown card, dark brown core'dinations cardstock and white card. I stamped the sentiment onto light brown card, cut each word out and matted them onto a strip of dark brown core'dinations cardstock.

25th Anniversary



   The first challenge of 2018 for QKR Stampede has the theme of anything goes. I have used a  Eureka Stamp digi called 25th Anniversary.
   I used  a silver gel pen round the edge of the 25 and filled the inside using icicle Stickles and silver Liquid Pearls to colour the daisy like flowers with white opal Liquid Pearls for the centres. The ferns were coloured using frosted lace Stickles and the remaining part of the design then coloured using Promarkers.
   I matted and layered the design onto pink card, silver rainbow mirri and white card and then added the two embellishments made using leaves die cut from silver rainbow mirri and flowers cut and coloured using Liquid Pearls.
