Rock a Bye

Today I have made a card that fits 3 challenges, and they are

Papertake Weekly Which is a Sketch

Passion for Promarkers the theme being Babies and to use promarkers of course

Oldie but a goodie Which is anything goes this week but you must use a rubber stamp that is at least 6 months old.

I have used Penny Black baby hammock stamp which I have had for years, I have coloured the image using promarkers. The papers are all from my stash and the sentiment is from a set of baby sentiments that I have also had for a couple of years. I have added 3 adhesive gems and finally followed the sketch on Papertake Weekly.

Penny Black and Basic Grey

2nd card of the day, doing well. This is a clean and simple card for me, but i thought the image didn't need any fancy backing papers, I tried but it looked pants. the image is penny black Lovin flowers and it has been coloured using promarkers (getting to love these babys) and the papers and flower and fronds are all basic grey papers from the Arachic and Granola pads. I have done some faux stitching around the image and one of the mounts.
I am going to enter this card into 2 challenges and they are

Penny black Saturday challenge which is to use stitching and a penny black image
Basic Grey challenges which is to also use stitching and something from basic grey.

Thank you for looking

Today I have made this card using one of my new stamps from Lili of the valley, you can't help but just adore their stamps, I need more !!!.
I have coloured the image using promarkers, the paper is from my stash and the card is co-ordinations card which I have embossed using the swiss dots folder and then sanded the dots. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is from craftworks cards and I have just inked it lightly with milled lavender distress ink to take the whiteness off it.

James on the slide

Todays card has to made to enter onto the Passion for promarkers challenge blog, and the theme this week is Park Life, where they would like to see images of things that you can do in the park. I chose to use this stamp called James from Kadoodle stamps and it is of James on the slide. I coloured the image with promarkers (excuse my colouring but I'm still just a novice), and then used my nesties to cut the image out, the papers are from a Trimcraft masucline set of papers and the ticket is a Tim Holtz one.

An oldie

Good Morning, todays card has been made to meet 2 challenges and they are

Cards for men who would like to see Stars
Sketch and Stash to follow the sketch and use neglected stash.

I have used Sugar Nellie skater stamp (neglected) and paper from the English Paper Co (also very neglected). The image has been coloured using promarkers (now need to get more colours) . The stars are die cut and not sure where they came from.

Now if you are wondering why the picture has been taken at an angle its because the stars are so shiny that if i took the picture straight one, they either came out black or I was reflected in them.

Thank you for looking.

A New Pad

Well todays is a simple card, no over embellishments today, but that is only because the image is such a large one, there isn't enough room left on the card for any. Today I have used the Penny Black stamp Lily Pond and coloured the image with promarkers. Not sure where the pink paper came from, but its in my stash. The green card is co-ordinations card again.
I have made this card to fit in with 3 challenges and they are
Penny Black saturday challenge - use those pesky critters

The Crafty Pad - something new e.g new home (thats what this is)

Charisma Cardz - use pink and green

Have made this card tonight for an x box mad 17 year old. Have used Lili of the valley computer fun stamp which I thought was appropriate for this little challenge. I have coloured the image using promarkers (still only a novice at this, so apologies to the experts). The image has been cut out using my nesties and then I cut a larger shape in cork to mount the image on. The blue BP is from my stash and the brown is co-ordinations which has been put through the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and then sanded so the blue shows through. The name and numbers have also been cut on the cuttlebug. This card meets the challenge this week on Ladybugs Craft Ink challenge blog, which is to use numbers on your card, my first time on this challenge blog but it won't be my last.

Sorry about the state of the pic, but its hard to get a decent picture this time of the evening, but hopefully will invest in a daylight lamp so it might make my pictures slightly better.

2 challenges

So I have started card making again, and was inspired to make this card to go along with the challenge on Cards for Men challenge blog. The challenge is to make cards for men/boys, well the blog title sort of gives that away, and the card is to meet the theme/sketch set. This week the theme is to use black and blue.

I have used a Kadoodle stamp and have coloured the image using promarkers (first time of using these). The papers are Tim Holtz vintage shabby and although the picture doesn't show it very well it looks like lined paper, the word stamp is also Tim Holtz and the blackboard is of my own making. Have used the stampin up punch to make the page look like its torn from a book(hope that makes sense, but can't remember what it is called).
Oh and the 2nd challenge was just to make a card again
