Wee DT Card for Scribble and Scrap Challenge #25

Hi everyone!

Soooo sorry not to have blogged but I've been just a tad busy with moving to the beautiful Isle of Wight and making our home here as well as making lots of very exciting plans for the shop, which I will announce in the next few days...  Ooh.

Everything is going brilliantly.  We have the most gorgeous little flat (and it's seriously diddy but I've managed to make it work really well for me and Jamie) with the most gorgeous outlook at the back in the most fabulous area.  There is an old disused railway running at the bottom of our garden which has been made all weather with a lovely new surface.  We can walk to the donkey sanctuary (saw them across the fields when we walked it the other day) and all sorts of places.  When we're fit enough we can go up on The Downs for some serious exploring.  AND there are bunnies and horses and gorgeous highland cattle along there...just a few hundred yards from our home.  It really is a fabulous place to walk. 

Mostly we've been busy building furniture (masses of the stuff) and getting organised, but we have managed to fit in an organised fossil walk run by the Dinosaur Island museum.  It was brilliant and I found a little bit of a dinosaur bone.  Incredible to know that I'm the first person to have ever set eyes on that bit of bone!  So chuffed.  It really was a great walk and we learned a lot.  You must go on one if ever you come over to the island for a holibobs as they're really good fun.  We've also visited the museum a couple of times as we've taken out annual membership.  I think we're going to be there more than the staff, lol.  It's a brilliant place.  

Absolutely love everything about living here.  It's just an incredible place and every single day we discover something which just makes it better and better.  Totally in love with our new home.  

Anyway...don't faint but I've made a card!!!!  I did stand at my recently cleared craft desk (squashed into my teeny weeny bedroom) and stare blankly thinking 'now what do I do?!!!!'  So today I went for simple and it's paid off as I'm all back into it now and raring to go.  It was brilliant to be crafting again, which is good as I have a heck of a lot of plans and will be crafting like crazy again very, very soon.  

Anyhoo...today is the start of Challenge #25 over at Scribble and Scrap and that means that in a week our challenges have been running for a whole year.  Doesn't seem possible!  

There are some changes to the challenges from now on.  These tie in with the changes I am making to the shop (we are having a new shop set up as well...in a few days time!) and they mean that prizes will be different from this challenge onwards.  Sorry...but there will no longer be a £5 voucher for the Top Three winners BUT instead I will be having a £10 voucher for the winner drawn by Random.Org AND a £10 voucher for a winner chosen by myself.  Yay!  The reasons will become clear once I have announced the changes happening at Scribble and Scrap Crafts....  Ooh...now you're dying to know, aren't you?  Other than the changes in the prizes, the only other change is that there won't be a GDT position in the challenge.  However...I will be making up for that in other ways to do with the blog...

Right...enough of this waffle and on to my card.


How cute is this?   I absolutely love the Wee images and this one is from a topper sheet (way too busy to colour this week) I purchased from The Hobby House.

The papers and matching matting layer I have used are from the Scribble and Scrap Crafts Fabulous Florals 1 Designer Paper Set (digital)  which will be on a different link shortly, though will still be available in the shop.  Just do a search and it will appear.  

The faux gems and brads are from my stash, as are the gorgeous flowers!  I have no idea where I bought them from.  I found a whole load of them in a box the other day and decided I needed to use some of them, especially as they are so beautiful.  

I created the sentiment on my lappy and that's it...a nice, simple but (I think) really pretty card. 

Wow!  It feels so fabulous to be crafting again.  Almost got this place sorted out and then there will be no stopping me.  Yay.  

Don't forget to head over to the challenge and check out the other DT inspiration and also to keep your eyes on the blog in the coming days for my exciting news.  

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #22 (Jamie's Birthday Card).

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and enjoying the summery weather...if you're having any!

Well, today is the start of challenge #22 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's ANYTHING GOES!  There are great prizes to be won for the Top Three as well as the GDT so please pop over and have a look.  All the information can be found on the blog.  There's going to be some exciting news on there in the coming months so make sure you keep an eye on it.  

Anyhoo..not only is it new challenge day but it's also my little man's 8th birthday and his card is the one I'm featuring today.  Jamie maybe 8 years old and love dinosaurs and enjoy doing crazy things for an (only just) 8 year old, like doing university courses (he's home educated and lives to learn!) but he's still a little lad and still loves his teddies so I've made him a cute and pretty card...probably for the last time as I don't think I'll get away with it next year, lol.  

So...here's Jamie's birthday card:

I think I can just get away with it with Jamie, lol.  

The image is a slightly adapted Archie (my own digi) but you won't find this version in the shop yet.  I've adjusted him slightly especially for Jamie.  

All the papers, though, are from my Scribble and Scrap Moody Blues Digi Paper Set as is the matting layer.  This set is perfect for male and female cards because the blues are pretty and fresh.  I have used three different papers from the set.  

I typed out the sentiment myself.

The corners and card candy are from my stash. 

The die cuts are cut using a Memory Box die.  

I'm really chuffed with this card.

I coloured the image using the following promarkers:

Aqua, Marine, Turqoise and Blender.

Absolutely love my little Archie...just so cute.  


Don't forget to head over for the challenge and to keep an eye on the blog  for the upcoming news in the next month or two!

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #21 DT Card.

Hi everyone!

Wow...look at me go!  Two cards in two weeks...incredible!  :o)

It's time for another Anything Goes challenge over at Scribble and Scrap.  You will find all the information about rules and the fabulous prizes over there so please head over and take a look.  The DT have made some fabulous projects for this week.  Also on the challenge, you will find showcase posts of the winners from Challenge #19.  Yes...if you get GDT, Top Three or are the Winner then your gorgeous projects will be showcased in their own post on the blog!  Yay! 

Anyhoo...here's my DT Card:

Awwww...how cute is this little image?  The image is called Catching Hearts and she can be found in the Art by Miran Etsy shop alongside almost 160 other beautiful digis. 

I've not coloured her as well as I'd like as I'm so out of practice and I also think I should have put my glasses on as looking at the photo the hair colours don't like the ones I thought I'd used.  

The pens I used (or thought I had, lol) are as follows:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Walnut, Cocoa, Caramel, Baby Pink, Antique Pink, Marine, Turquoise, Cool Aqua, Sandstone, Satin and Putty for outlining.  

The papers and matting layer (which matches the papers perfectly) are from the Pink and Brown Digital Paper Set 1 which is one of many digi paper sets available at Scribble and Scrap.  The flower is created using one of the papers from the set as well.  The sentiment digi is from the Basic Birthday Sentiment Set 1 at Scribble and Scrap.

The charm is from my stash, the heart pears and pearl brad are from The Hobby House and the little silver corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts, I think. 

The inside is decorated to match.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Don't forget to hop over to the Scribble and Scrap Blog to see the fabulous DT and GDT inspiration and to join in the fun. 

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #20 DT Card

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and have been being good?

I know, I know...it's ages since I've blogged but I have been very busy doing behind the scenes stuff as well as preparing for a big house move at the end of July.  I'm way too excited about the move to settle until we're completely ready, so I've cracked on with that and we're almost there.  Need to do a little bit more sorting stuff, some painting and things but the bulk of it's done and it's so well organised that it won't take long to do the final bits...apart from some decorating (groan).  But now I'm finding more time for crafting, which is brilliant.  The break's done me good, though, and I'm itching to really get back into the groove so watch this space!  :o)

Anyhoo...today is the start of Challenge #20 over at Scribble and Scrap.  I really cannot believe we're on our 20th challenge already and I want to thank you all for making it so successful and a whole lot of fun. 

All the rules are over on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge Blog so come and join us!  It's always Anything Goes so no excuses...and the prizes are pretty fabulous too! 

And here's my card:


For this vintage card I have used the following Scribble and Scrap products.

and

The faux pearls are from my stash and the gorgeous roses and metal corners are from

********

I have used three different papers from the Vintage Digi Papers Set 1 and also one of the plain matting layers which I have included in the set for a perfect match when matting and layering.  I have also 'stamped' the sentiment digi onto some of the paper to finish off.

A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the lace panel.  

The interior of the card is decorated to match.  

The beautiful photo images come in black and white but I have adjusted the colour slightly for this one so that it is a little softer and more vintage.  

Don't forget to drop by the challenge and join in.  Can't wait to see your projects.  Good luck!

Take care everyone and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge DT Card - Challenge #17

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok?  

Sorry...been so busy that my blog has been sorely neglected.  I've not even had time to change the background...shall do it soon.

Anyway, I'm here with a new card for Challenge #17 over at Scribble and Scrap

The usual rules apply (see blog link above) and there is a £15 voucher for the Random drawn winner and also £5 vouchers for each of the Top Three.  

As always, it's Anything Goes so no excuses...we really wanna see all your projects!

Anyoo...here's my card created using a gorgeous Wee digi called Daphne.


Isn't Daphne so cute?

I have coloured the image in using the following pens:

Copics:  E00, E11, E21

Promarkers:  Berry Red, Lipstick Red, Crimson, Caramel,
Sandstone, Satin, Baby Pink, Mustard, Gold, Vanilla, Amber,
Pumpkin, Spice, Apricot, Ginger, Bright Green, Lime Green,
and Lime Zest.  

I used the Scribble and Scrap Hot Stuff Digital Paper Set for the papers and flowers.  Absolutely love these colours.  The matting layers are also from the paper set to ensure that you get a perfect match. 

The stamp is from a set in my stash and the brads were from the Hobby House.  The other faux pearls are from my stash. 

I have used all this to create a shutter card which are so easy to make.  I will make a tutorial and put it on the Scribble and Scrap Blog in the next few days if I can sort the photos out.  Right now I'm having big problems with the card reader on my new lappy (grrrr).  

I will enter this card into the following challenges:

Don't forget to head over to the blog for the challenge and to check out the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Take care and happy crafting!

Scribble and Scrap Challenge DT Card - Wee.

Morning everyone!

Long time now see...sorry.  I've been so busy but will be gradually getting back to normal in the next few months (I hope) but I will be a little quiet until then.  More news on that another time.  

Anyway, today is the start of challenge #14 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes.  

There is a £15 voucher for the randomly drawn winner (£20 if a Scribble and Scrap product has been used) and a £5 voucher for each of the Top Three.

Please check out all the rules over on the blog to make sure that you don't lose out on any of the prizes. 

Anyway...here's my card.

 
I have used one of the gorgeous Wee toppers from The Hobby House for this one.  My printer's playing up and isn't liking printing in black and white so no colouring of digis for me this time around.  

The papers I have used (4 different ones) are from my own (Scribble and Scrap's) Grungy Floral - Naturals Paper Set which, although I'm biased, I think is absolutely gorgeous.  The matching matting layer also comes from the set so that all layers match perfectly together.  

The flowers were cut from one of the papers but the pattern doesn't show up clearly in the photo.  I used a Marianne die to cut those.  

The inside is decorated to match.  The pearl brads are from The Hobby House and the clear faux gems are from my stash.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #12 DT Card - Archie with a Flower

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and surviving the absolutely horrendous weather.  We've been so lucky where we are but I really feel for those who are being hit hard again and again and again.  It's non stop this year.  Also thinking about all the millions of animals who will have been killed or who have lost their homes, especially the burrowing ones.  :o(

Anyway...it's challenge time again over at Scribble and Scrap.  As always it's Anything Goes and the random drawn winner will receive a £15voucher (£20 if they have used a Scribble and Scrap product!) to spend in the Scribble and Scrap shop, and the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher each.  Great prizes, especially with all the new papers I have been adding to the shop over the last week or two!  Not only that but there are two Archies (cute bear character) including one which is only just in the shop today...the one I have used for my card...he's my little guy and I had a lot of fun drawing him.

And on to my card:


Awww...isn't he cute?  Archie can be found here.

I coloured Archie with the following promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Walnut, Cocoa, Sandstone and Blender.

My colouring's not all that this time as I had to use a different card which didn't blend so well.  I need to stock up on Supersmooth!  My bad!  

As well as Archie, I have also used 3 papers from Scribble and Scrap's Lacy Florals Digital Paper Set as well as one of the matting colours from the same set to ensure the perfect match.

AND the sentiment is also from Scribble and Scrap - Basic Birthday Sentiment Digi Set

The brads are from The Hobby House, the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid and the faux pearls are from my stash. 

The inside is decorated to match.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Meet Archie!

Hi everyone,

hope you're all ok?

I've been so busy creating papers and things for the shop and me and Dave have got together and came up with a new character.  We only have one digi ready so far but more will be following soon (ish).  :o)

Anyhoo...just made this card featuring Archie (who will be available in the shop in the next day or two) and some of the new papers.

Archie is now in the shop!


Isn't Archie just so adorable?  I'm absolutely in love with this little guy, but if he was real I'd have to fight Jamie for him as he loves him too.  

I have used 5 of the papers from the Scribble and Scrap Valentine's Digi Paper Set.  I even used the papers to create the daisies which were cut using the Spellbinders Daisy Patch dies.  

The large pearl brads are from The Hobby House, the faux pearls are from my stash and I created the sentiment on my lappy.  

I coloured Archie using the following Promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Cocoa, Caramel, Sandstone and the blender.  

The inside is decorated to match.  

I'm pretty pleased with this card and will be entering it into the following challenges:

Scribble and Scrap Challenge #11 DT Project - Heart Shaped Box

Morning everyone!

Goodness...two posts in two days...I better watch I don't do myself a mischief!  :o)  


Today is the start of Challenge #11 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes!  Yay!  See the blog for more information and the rules, which are on the Challenge Rules and Info page.  If you don't follow the rules you don't stand a chance of winning...simples.  
The winner (drawn by Random.Org) will receive a £15 voucher (£20 if they have used a www.scribbleandscrap.co.uk product) and each of the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher to spend in the shop. 

And here's my project

Yep...a box!  :o)  

I've used a Silhouette cutting file to create this box and it was so simple to make but I wanted to do it to show off one of the papers I have been working on.  I have just added In the Pink Set 1 to the shop so head over for a nose.  They will shortly be available in a variety of colours and I will also be doing them in colour combos as well...so watch this space.  

The ribbon and brad were from my stash and I used Joanna Sheen and Cheery Lynn dies to cut the flower and leaves...and that's it.  

I would like to say there are chocolates in here but do you really think that they would remain uneaten by the time I'd set up the photo and done the shoot?  Nope...so I resisted the temptation.  :o)  You could put little love heart sweets in here...or even a ring!  How cute.  

Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful projects in Challenge #11.  Good luck.

Take care and happy crafting!

Man Up! - A Little Bit Crafty Challenge

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok and keeping warm and dry?

Today is the start of February's challenge over at Paula Holifield's A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and this month the theme is 'Man Up!' so we want lots of 'man' themed projects.  

This month the challenge is sponsored by:

Visible Image
Set of 3 stamp sets 
 
Ephemera pack
Set of 2 stamps

More information can be found over on the challenge.

Visible Image Stamps very kindly provided me with the Clayton Legend Stamp Set to use for this challenge...and here is my card:

Clayton really reminds me of my Jamie and this is the perfect card for Jamie as right now he's doing an online university course run by the University of Alberta on dinosaur paleobiology...even though he's only 7.5 years old.  He's 2/3 of the way through and loving ever second.  So he's certainly aiming high!  

Both the image and the sentiments are from the Clayton Legend stamp set and I coloured the image using the following markers:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Pastel Blue, Denim, Midnight blue, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Crimson, Berry Red, Red,  Black, Cool Grey 5, 3 and 1. 

I created the papers myself in colours to match the image.  

The buttons were cut using a Memory Box die.  

Good luck in the challenge everyone!

Take care and happy crafting!

Rose Trifold Card - Scribble and Scrap Challenge #10

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok and having a good weekend?

Just been reading in the news about a nun having a baby...she didn't know she was pregnant.  I'm wondering if this means we're going to be having 2 Christmases from now on?  I'm just hoping that they're not going to be making a habit (get it???) of this or it'll be very expensive with all the pressies!  :o)

Today is the start of Challenge #10 over at Scribble and Scrap and, as always, it's Anything Goes!  Yay!  See the blog for more information and the rules, which are on the Challenge Rules and Info page.  If you don't follow the rules you don't stand a chance of winning...simples.  

The winner (drawn by Random.Org) will receive a £15 voucher (£20 if they have used a www.scribbleandscrap.co.uk product) and each of the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher to spend in the shop. 

Anyhoo...wanted to do something a little different this week so here is my card.



Yep...it's a tri fold card.  They're so easy to make and a lot of fun as well.  

You can decorate them how you like, but for this one I just used two of the black and white papers I have designed and put the spotted paper on the forward facing sections and the striped papers on the sideways facing sections, but there are loads of options.  

I wanted to keep this card mainly monochrome with just a splash of colour, which I have added in the form of the gorgeous Vintage Rose Bud 2 digi

I cut the rose out using a Spellbinders circular die before colouring it with the following Promarkers:

Crimson, Berry Red, Red, Forest Green, Bright Green, Lime Green and Cool Grey 1 (to outline). 

The matting layer throughout is Papermania Black Textured Cardstock and the dies used were Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles.  The base card was cut using white Centura Pearl cardstock. 

The dies are Joanna Sheen's Signature Butterflies and Dragonfly dies (they cut so beautifully!), and I finished off with some faux black gems.  

And that's it...simples!  :o)  

Hope you like my project.  Please head over to see the rest of the DT inspiration.

Take care everyone and happy crafting!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and getting back to normal after Christmas and the New Year.  Seems to take longer each year, doesn't it?  

Anyway, I'm here with a mid challenge reminder for the current challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty
The theme this month is 'Celebrate' so lots of options to join in.  

The sponsors this month are:

£15 voucher to spend at Scribble and Scrap
 
Petal Lu - £10 selection of blossoms
Find her on Facebook here

Ooh...I'm sponsoring it!  Yay!  :o)  

Anyhoo...here's my card.


I fancied a change so have used a gorgeous topper by Wee from The Hobby House to create a pretty wedding card.  

I created the papers on my lappy in various colours featured in the image and pink...just because I like it.  :o) 

The sentiment was also created on the lappy...as was the matting layer.

The faux pearls and ribbon were from my stash and the die cut leaves were cut using the Joanna Sheen Signature Dies - Rose Leaves which Joanna very generously sent me as part of my Christmas package.

The beautiful flowers were provided for us to use by the lovely Lucinda at Petal Lu who is also sponsoring the challenge this month.  

Right...that's it.  Don't forget to pop over to Paula Holifield's  A Little Bit Crafty to check out the rules and join in the fun!  Good luck.

The Puglies - Horatio and Boris - Scribble and Scrap Challenge #9 DT Card

Morning everyone!  

Hope you're all ok and raring to go with the latest challenge over at Scribble and Scrap! 

As always, it's Anything Goes so no reason not to enter, especially as from now on we're going to be giving a £5 voucher to spend in the shop to each of the Top Three winners as well as the £15 voucher (£20 if winner uses a Scribble and Scrap product) for the Random drawn winner.  Woohoo!  

I will also be designing some new blog badges to go with our new look blog and shop, so keep your eyes peeled for them!

So head over and check out the DT's fabulous inspiration and go for it!  
All the rules and information is on the blog so please read.  

Anyhoo...here's my card.  A bit disappointed with this one.  I'm happy with the Horatio and Boris image and the papers but not happy with the embellies.  Either I'm going to have to go shopping for more dies suitable for blokies' cards or I'll have to start using my Cameo more!  


I have used the following markers to colour the image:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21

Promarkers:  Denim, Pastel Blue, Baby Pink, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Marine, Tuquoise and Cool Aqua.  

I created the papers myself using Denim and Pastel Blue so they match with the image.  

The sentiment was created on my lappy.

The balloon dies are by Impression Obsession and the star dies are from Memory Box.

The inside is decorated to match.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges.  

Take care everyone and happy crafting!
