A Gem Of A Challenge 49 ~ Christine's Recipe...

Hi all. 
Ooops sorry a little late posting today, and it will have to be a quick one too. My Jessie was 10 on Thursday  so had a busy week. She has some friends over today, and I'm taking them out for lunch in a mo. 

So without further ado, here's my DT card for A GEM OF A CHALLENGE. Christine's turn this week and she has a recipe to follow;
Buttons, Bows, Bling & Butterflies.

I used this fab digital Baby Set from Pink Gem Designs.
I did a pit of paper piecing and layering with some Pink Petticoat papers.
The sweet little pegs were from The Works.

I have to dash as the girls are over excited and waiting for me. But thanks so much for popping by!

The Sugar Bowl....

Hi all on this rainy Father's Day (here in the UK). What better weather to stay in and craft?.. 
So today I made a little creation for the latest challenge over at The Sugar Bowl, following a fab sketch by Maria Therese with the optional theme 'One For The Boys'. 

I used this adorable 'Nathan' digi stamp from funky Kits, and coloured him with my Copics.

Other Ingredients;
Papermania Card Blank,
Webster's Pages,
Other papers from my scraps box,
Lili Of The Valley Sentiment Tag stamps,
Tim Holtz Distress Markers,
Whimsy Corner Dies,
Red Copic Glitter Pen (for faux stitching),
Mini Brads.

I used my Distress Markers to ink up the sentiment stamps. I used 3 colours including Black Soot & Barn Door to give a multi coloured, distressed finish. Just remember to give your stamp a quick huff of breath to revive the ink before stamping.

I am loving my Distress Markers so far. I'd been wondering whether to get them or not for weeks, but eventually gave in and went for the full set (early birthday treat) .

I've also been having a go at water colouring with them this weekend.
I will hopefully show you some finished images using them really soon.

Thanks so much for popping by. I'm off to get all the school things ready for the morning then I'll pop back for a catch up with your blogs too.

Happy Father's Day! ~ DigiStamp Boutique DT Card...

Hi all! 
I hope my Dad won't be peeking at my blog before the weekend 'cause this is the card I've made for him ready for Father's Day.

I used this brilliant and very useful 'Dad Relaxing' digi stamp from DigiStamp Boutique. I used the 'Dog' version, but there is also a 'cat' clever! You can find them both HERE along with another very useful image for those awkward man makes, called 'Grandad Relaxing'.

On The Edge Craftwork Cards card blank,
Lacey Square Nesties & Star dies,
Sentiment (?) ~ a digi I printed out ages ago..
Pink Paislee Papers,
Card Candi (love the news print effect!),
Distress Stickles,
Kars Mini Wooden Letters,
Buckle & Ribbon from stash

I have quite a few cards I need to make this month so should have something else to share really soon.

Thanks so much for popping by!

A Monster Birthday!...

Hi all! I'm back from my break away from blogging. I feel better now we've managed to do the bulk of the decorating so hopefully a bit of time for me now, and guilt free!

Hope you're enjoying the long Jubilee weekend here in the UK.
I was up very early today and managed to squeeze in a little crafty time to finish off a couple of cards. I managed to finish this DT card for DigiStamp Boutique using one of the latest sets called Monster Birthday. Love them...such fun!... 

* Birthday Monsters

Other bits used are;
Pink Petticoat papers,
Go Kreate dies,
Queen & Co twine,
Button from stash.

I'm just loving my new watermark from Pink Gem Designs!

Well you've seen the first card I managed to finish. The other will have to wait though as I can't show you until Saturday :-)

Thanks so much for popping by,
Jenny xx
