Tilda easel card

Well as it's a tilda time for me at the moment I thought I would share this card I have made, and had great fun doing so.
I have used a scalloped square card I had in a pack from Craftwork cards. The paper used is from my new pad of My Minds Eye, I just love these colours in this pack.
I have used a tilda scene onto the card then stamped the wall and tilda and mounted on top. My new found love are the promarker which I used to colour the card with. A little chalk around the edges to blend and a lovely Happy Birthday rub on to finish off a little bling.

Hot and Spicy Challenge

Well this is a first for me to spread my wings and be brave and enter a Challenge on my own (how brave)!!!!! Here's the card I have made for the Just Magnolia Challenge "Hot and Spicy challenge". I have gone for the summer HOT theme hope I understood it correctly if not I tried. I have made a sping card and used my wonderful new pad of My Minds Eye paper. The water can from the lovely tilda collection I have and not forgetting tilda herself. A little bit of Martha stewart punch going on around the edge.

Horse in Stable 18th Birthday

Well I was fairly chuffed with this card, I had been asked to make a card for an 18th Bithday girl who liked horses (what an honour to be asked to make a card).
I have designed this in Cricut Design Studio and then just played a little to layer the roof. I have used my new Hero Arts woodgrain stamp to create a wood effect, what a super stamp!!
The super cute horse is my tilda stamp coloured with my fab promarkers, Ohhh i'm having sooo much fun with them, they are lovely to use. Only one little problem is I NEED MORE !!! (as I flick and flutter my eyeleads at my lovely hubby).

Son Birthday Card

My poor blog has been neglected for a while, I have been doing other things and no time for blog !! so sad !!
It's my big boys birthday this week so thought I would share the card I had made for him.
I have used, yeah you've guess Cricut design studio to design this card. I have chalked the circles behind on a liner page to give a little more colour.
The rosette was done using my gel pens and chalked around.
I also have used this card for a class and used it with a father's day theme, just replacing SON with DAD and Happy Birthday with Happy Fathers day

STORK and BABY card

I have been very busy the last few days making baby cards, everybody seems to be having babies or asking for baby cards (which is great). Well I know I say it everytime but I have used Design studio to make this card, with the help of New arrivals Cart. Not forgetting my new darkroom door gingham stamp from
Here is a close up of the wings which I have curled to add to the effect.
Here is a close up of the fab gingham stamp results. I used the brayer and a big and juicy ink pad to achieve the wonderful colours. On the last one I have used a plain colour, ran it through the big shot in the swiss dots folder and chalked the edges to match the under colour.

Here is a close up of the baby, I have used my chalks to get a little detail.

Craft Club

Well this is the card we made at a craft club I go to arranged by Ali-craft. We had a stampin up! demo this week and we all had chance to make a card (the stuff was provided for us). I was very pleased with the finished item. We were all laughing and saying who is going to be the first to get one as a birthday card !!!! Great day was had by all and it's always nice to see everyone.

Here is the envelope we decorated to match

Wings Challenge

Well this is my challenge card over on the UK crafters thread. We had to use something with wings, as I love the butterfly on Indie Art this is the one I have used. It a slider card.
I have made it in a few different colour variations. The Butterfly was cut in blackout twice then without blackout in vellum for the top layer which has some fab glittered spots (on the blue one), just to make it sparkle. I have used Stamping cart to cut the Blue Happy Birthday in sticky backed peel off. Just to finish it offer with a few silver/blue peel offs around the edges.

Challenge card for Lily-Boo

WOW I WON MY FIRST EVER CHALLENGE, thanks for all your comments

First time for everything, so here we go with my card for the Lily-Boo's shaped card challenge(not square or rectangle). If you haven't been there lets make it the next place to visit Lily Boo, they have lots of super cute digi images. I have used the little coloured fairies for my card which is a spinner.

This is the inside of the spinner

Forgot to say I have used wild card cart for card with a few alterations in Design Studio. The background was done using inkadinkadoo stamps from the Beautiful Fairies set I just felt they went well. The colours were done with Distress inks - Broken China and Fired Brick and the lovely Dreamweaver Stencil Brushes, new addition and thought I would have a play.
