Male cards

Here’s two cards I made for my brother’s birthday (one from me, one from my Mam!).
The first one has an image from Mo Manning, coloured with Promarkers. I used some lovely grosgrain ribbon I got from The Ribbon Shack.

Summer Craft Swaps

I recently took part in two online craft swaps. It’s very exciting sending a parcel off to a stranger and waiting for their reaction. Also equally exciting getting a surprise back in the post. I’ve been very lucky in all the lovely crafts I’ve received in all the swaps I’ve be part of.

For the first one I used a kit for a memories book that I got from Jackie Mooney. I made it into a chipboard album and added one or two extra bits. There’s space for two photos in this album.

I also sent a few cards, but I only took a photo of one of them. I used a digi I had coloured in ages ago and hasn’t made it onto a card. I never seem to have time to colour or craft just for the same if it anymore! 😦
I used a coffee cup collar in this card aswell. Waste not want not!

And here is what I received…..a lovely box full of goodies.

photo 5And two beautiful crocheted doilies.

Wasn’t I lucky?

The second swap was an alphabet swap. My letter was ‘C’ so I made a Clock stepper card. I used my new Tim Holtz clock die and some digi stamps from Mami Doodles.
I am entering this card in the ‘Cut it Up’ challenge – What’s bugging you?  (see my little ladybug?!)

My swappee had the letter ‘D’, so she made me an altered notelet holder with my name on it, how clever is that? I’ll definitely be making some of these for Christmas gifts.

PS My friend has borrowed my camera, so I’ve been taking pictures with my phone. I’m not happy with how the cards look in the photos, they’re better in real life, I swear!! 😀

50 Shades of Grey card

For all the Fifty fans. 😉

When I first saw this image by Saturated Canary I had to have it, even though I didn’t know what I would use it for!  Well it turns out, Valentine’s Day is perfect for it.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and embellished the card with grey ribbon and black pearls.  I am entering this card into the I Love Promarkers Challenge – Love is All Around.

First attempt at Distress Inks

SO my crafty new year’s resolution was to try out Distress Inks.  I was advised to start with light colours to start with, so I bought ‘Old Paper’ and ‘Spun Sugar’ by Tim Holtz, and a blending tool.

 

The first card uses ‘Old Paper’ and an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.

I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge – Song Inspiration.  This engagement card is inspired by the song ‘Make You Feel my Love’ by Bob Dylan, more recently covered by Adele.

IMG_0653______________________________________________________________________

This next card also has an image from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers.  This time, I used ‘Spun Sugar’ Distress Ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

In the Pink – Pink and Pearlie

Sketch Saturday – Week 240

IMG_0652___________________________________________________________________

The last card has some distressing aswell, but not with inks!  I used some Core’dinations black card, and distressed the edges with a scissors to show the white core.  The image is from Mo Manning (I use this one a lot!), coloured with Promarkers (Cool Grey 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5).

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Mo’s Digital Challenge – Anything Goes

I Love Promarkers – Monochrome

I attended the above wedding over a week ago, the day after Christmas, but with it being a busy time, I only got around to making the card yesterday!  My gift for the couple was 120 cakepops for the wedding!  The colour scheme was purple, so I got some purple lollipop sticks and purple gel food colouring from Cake Couture so that they would match.  You can see my tutorial for cakepops here.

The next card has an image of Saturated Canary, again coloured with Promarkers.  It is inspired by the song ‘Breath of Life’ by Florence and the Machine, from the move ‘ Snow White and the Huntsman’.  You can see the video for the song here.  I am entering this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge, Song Inspiration!

The last card is very different, even though it has a similar colour scheme.  No digi stamp  in this one; I used some die-cut decopage that I’ve had in my stash for ages.  It’s ‘Wellington’ Bear by DoCrafts, and so are the papers.  The ’70’ is cut with my Cricut, using the ‘Quarter Note’ cartridge.  The ribbon is from a box of Butler’s chocolates.  My mother always keeps them for me from any boxes she gets.  🙂

I am entering this card into the Cut it Up Challenge – Out with the Old
