Kenny K at Stamp and Create

It's weekly candy time again at Stamp and Create. All you have to do is pop over to the store blog here, grab the banner, place in your side bar & enter. Who knows it may be you winning.

I have created a male card, most of us hate doing male cards, especially those like me that put loads of embellies on my cards.

The image is Kenny K Golfer coloured with Prisma pencils. the papers are freebies from an old magazine. The tabs are a SU die cut which are coloured with TH DI Peeled Paint onto which I have stamped the sentiment. A little twine and button and a golf tee, again coloured with DI made from a Glitter Girls board  ( yes remember them) lol.
A few Candi buttons & a Ballcap charm complete the card.

LOTV at Divas by Design

Its Team B turn over at Divas by Design today for the latest challenge & this time it is sponsored by Lili of the Valley
The challenge theme is Fancy Folds, so I used a template over at UKScrappers & cut this out on my Craft Robo. (there are loads of photos, so sorry)
I have covered it with papers from Wild Rose Studio & edged them all with TH Distress Ink Milled Lavender & Dusty Concord
The ribbon is from stash, as are the flowers. I coloured a cocktail stick with Promarkers. A MS punch Pine Needles was used for the leaves.
It is just big enough to take a Creme Egg, so this is an Easter pressie for my sons girlfriend, whose favourite colour happens to be purple lol.
Inside is an LOTV image which is coloured with Promarkers.

Crichet Lace from my stash, as is the green ribbon bow. The sentiment is an old QVC purchase.. The ticket is part of the Magnolia Doohickey 3 ticket die & the metal sentiment once again is from really old stash, so no idea where from. A few candy buttons complete the card.

Tilda on Snowy Roof at Dream Valley

Over at Dream Valley we have another challenge & its Ribbons & Bling & is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons
I thought I would make my first Christmas card for 2013 as I had won Snowy Roof in a challenge & didnt want to wait until later to use her. I started by colouring the sky with TH Distress Inks. A combination of Broken China & Chipped Sapphire. I then used Edwins Village, coloured with Promarkers ( used greys as I wanted them to be more subtle to make the main image stand out). I cut out each house & positioned them onto the sky. The Snowy Roof & Tilda on Roof were coloured with Promarkers & Prismas. I made a frame using Magnolia Old Swedish Lace & left white. Added some Stickles to the snow & smoke. Added ribbon across the top to show Merry Christmas & a little orange dotty bow. The bling is jewels in each corner & a large brad holding the metal star.

Stamp & Create weekly candy

Each Monday Lacey over at Stamp & Create gives away weekly candy & all you have to do is post her banner in your side bar & link to her store
My card this week uses a Wags n Whiskers digi stamp available here. I have been experimenting with TH Distress Inks again, I need more practice for sure & need to find decent paper that is no more than 180gsm for painting with the inks as my new printer does not take anything more than 180gsm & its an absolute pain. So if anyone can recommend a good paper for painting with Distress Inks & no more than 180gsm, please let me know. The papers I have used are Bo Bunny Alora. The embellishments are Magnolia Doily Flower & Magnolia Three Ticket die. The flourish is a Cheery Lyn. The charm is a little umbrella. The papers are edged with both TH Peeled Paint & Festive Berries & I have also added another Magnolia Doohockey die Tildas Lace Border to the layers of paper underneath the image. lastly a little Bakers twine added to the charm.

Stamp & Create with Magnolia Challenge 2

The challenge starting today at Stamp & Create with Magnolia for a fortnight is Spring with flowers & blooms. As our challenges have a seasonal theme as well, you must use a spring themed image & this could be any of the following. Flowers, Butterflies, New Beginnings (baby/wedding). Rain, Sunshine, Outdoors. Love, Mothers Day, Birthdays, with colours that are more bright or pastel than winter colours. The prize is 1 free Magnolia stamp of your choice from the store, so lets see your entries.

Back to my card. The papers are Craft Creations Green Diamonds & Green Meadow. The background image is Make It Crafty & called Daffodil Dell, coloured with Promarkers. I have masked the Watering Can from Chasing Butterflies & Honeybee Tilda from Summer Memories & placed them in the background. The sky is too bright for me but I went wrong & had to recover it, so its looks more like underwater I think lol. Still at least I had a go! Flowers, dewdrops & ribbon all from stash. The sentiment is an old QVC one. The butterfly charm is also from stash.
