OVER THE GARDEN FENCE
(You must use a fence die cut or a stamped fence)
This time we are lucky to be sponsored by:
gif maker
And the Prize is;


So here is my creation for this challenge:
I used Flight Attendant Tilda for this card but today she is a stewardess on a train.
She is standing on the platform by the Station Fence!! Lol
Coloured with my Polychromos and Pan Pastels for a chalked edging.
I am pretty sure the fence is a Magnolia stamp too but I can't find it anywhere.
The gorgeous bow is made from some beautiful satin ribbon from Crafty Ribbons which comes in some gorgeous colours.
So there you go folks, my Over the Garden Fence card.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Flower Power at Crafty Ribbons

Hello lovelies,
Well it is the turn of the Buttons Team to host the challenge this week.
And this week the theme is
FLOWER POWER
and has been chosen by me! :-)
So long as your creation fulfils the challenge you can make whatever you like, cards, layouts, altered items, take your pick and have fun.
So here is my offering for this week:
The flowers on this card were stamped using a hand made stamp.
I discovered this new to me idea at one of Maria Simms' Clarity workshops.
Too detailed to go into the ins and outs of how we made it but suffice to say the actual flower is a Clarity Stamp and the colours are chosen by me.
Here is a close up of the stamped flower.
The sentiment is also a Clarity Stamp.
and the gorgeous yellow ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and you can find that here
I am looking forward to seeing your lovely creations.

CAS card at Totally Tilda

Hello all
Just popping by to let you know that you still have about a week to join in with the current challenge over at Totally Tilda.
The theme this time is:
CLEAN AND SIMPLE
And we are sponsored by:
Prize will either be:
a Ribbon Kit
or
a £10 voucher for the store.
So here is my Midway reminder for you:
I used Sneaky Tilda for this card and coloured her with my Polychromo Pencils.
I love the softness of the muted colours on here and am really pleased with how they came out.
I added a small sentiment from a Friends Sentiment stamp set from KaiserCraft.
Then I used my black Micron pen and went around the edge of the card.
I used little scallops one way and then filled in the gaps with a scallop the other way (if you understand what I mean??)
So there you go. A little midway reminder for the current challenge at Totally Tilda.
I do hope you get time to join in with us!

Less is More - Feathers

Hi all,
Just popping in to show you a quick card I made for the Less is More challenge which is to use three of something on your card and leave comments on at least three other entries.
I haven't entered the Less is More challenge for ages now and I thought it was about time I gave it another go.
So here you go then:
I have used three gorgeous brown feathers on my card which I bought from That Craft Place on FB, lovely shop but dangerous place to visit - I always come away penniless!! lol.
Then I added my sentiment which is from Barbara at Clarity Stamp.
I did a bit of the old shadow stamping here but I think I was a little bit out at the bottom as you can't see much of a shadow on the wording - hey ho practice makes perfect eh??
Then I added a border using one of my Promarkers and a thin nib, a gem at the bottom of the feathers and voila!!
Hope you like it, please let me know what you think - all comments gratefully received.

NO SQUARE CARDS

gif maker
And the Prize is;
So here is my Midway reminder for you:
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the shape. I punched an edge with one of my MS Border punches and glued it along the folded edge and then added a fabulous new ribbon from Crafty Ribbons which you can find here.
The stamp in the background is from Clarity Stamps and you can find that here.
The gorgeous pin is from my very good but distant friend Mandy!! Still here hunni!! Lol.
The sweet green roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
So peeps, hope you get chance to join in our Shaped Cards challenge.

Anything Goes with Ribbon

Hello lovelies,
Well it is the turn of the Buttons Team to host the challenge this week.
Our theme this week is
ANYTHING GOES WITH RIBBON
So that means you can go wild and do whatever takes your fancy.
So long as there is some ribbon on there somewhere the world, as they say, is your oyster.
So here is my offering for this week:
I made this for a colleague at work for her (bet you can't guess???) 50th Birthday!! Lol
I love the Sweet Pea images and have so many that I have never used I am determined to use them more this year.
The image is coloured with my Polychromo Pencils and I have added Glamour Dust to her tail.
I'm really please with how this turned out and I think it looks so feminine and girly.
The background is done using the Gelli Plate.  God I love that thing - something else I am determined to use more of this year.
The gorgeous 35mm satin ribbon is of course from Crafty Ribbons HERE
I added the 50 by using the Shape stamps and numbers set from Clarity Stamps
The pearl stems and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts
The little tags are from a set of 100 tags which I purchased from Clarity Stamps.
So there you go, I do hope she likes it because I love it.
Can't wait to see all your gorgeous creations.
