SOOO Sorry...& Totally Tilda Challenge

...I haven't been on here much lately, i have had a mountain of cards ordered so i have been kept busy with them and working.
This card i made for my mum for Mother's Day
(even tho she's already had a nosey at it!) and i am entering this into the Totally Tilda challenge, link is below main picture at the bottom.
For the challenge we had to use chipboard on the project.
The chipboard i used on my card was the 'Tag' at the top.
It was originally a chipboad sticker but i didnt like the design on it, so i peeled off the design and the sticky side and was left with a fluffy textured tag.
I used my Distress Inks on the front.
I used 'Old Paper' to distress it and then stamped my flowers with 'Dusty Concord'.
For the sentiment and leaves i used my Cocoa Memento ink.
I attatched it with a brad and voila... Here it is!
A little different for me!

This is my entry for the Totally Tilda Challenge Blog

The papers i used are by 'Making Memories' and i purchased them at my local TKMaxx for only €4.00 for a pack of 40 sheets!
The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and gems are from my stash

Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the Totally Tilda Challenge blog

Off the edge- Less is More Challenge

This is week 6 challenge over at less is more

I decided to try and make a quick and simple Mothers day card for my nan and this is what i came up with and entering into the challenge.

I enjoyed trying something different and keeping the card clean and simple for a change.
For my card I printed the sentiment onto the card blank and then stamped my new V&A Inspired stamps across and coloured with promarkers.


Wild Orchid Challenge 19

Onto a new challenge :) I'm really loving having a blog now!x

I'm entering this card into Wild Orchid Challenge which you can find over here
This weeks challenge was to use dies or punches on your project.

For my card i decided to use some of my lovely glittered cardstock, which i had kept because it's so pretty and i wanted to keep it (you all know the ones, the ones you keep buying but keep to admire and stroke cuz they are sooo pretty)

Recipe For this card

Image was free with a magazine, and coloured with Promarkers
Gingham paper from Crafts Too
Flowery purple cardstock from DCWV Pocket full of Posies Matstack
For the flowers and the swirls i used my Sizzix dies
For the image I used my nestabilities for all 3 layers
To finish i embellished with Wild Orchid Crafts Pearls
And i centred the flowers with buttons

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments

PFP Challenge: My Guy Ian for Max

I made this card for my nextdoor neighbour to give to her son for his birthday.

My neighbour never said to do anything specific, and i got given the order for this card via my h2b. She also ordered another 2 cards but, o/h couldn't remember one of the names.
Lucky she lives next door lol

I wasn't quite sure about the papers all matching but i'm happy with it now it's finished.

I'm entering this card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge which can be found here
This weeks challenge was a sketch to follow, i hope i fulfilled all the requirements :)


Image is from the 'My Guy Ian' set

Coloured with promarkers: Skin: Blush, Oatmeal, Pastel Pink,

Clothes: Denim Blue, Powder Blue, Yellow, Apple, Black

Papers are DCWV Matstack for Girls (sorry max)

And DCWV Rock Star?

I used the cuttlebug embossing folders 'Happy Birthday' and 'Bubbles'

I then finished off with a few PM dark green gems

I hope my neighbour likes it!
