Flower from Sarah's cards with gem brad and charm to finnish.

Crafty Cardmakers 1st blog challenge

Not been on for a while, been busy making cards for stalls.
I've just made a card for a friend's order and it fits the bill for this challenge - Blossoms

I have used Papermania backing sheet with American Crafts cardstock edged with Martha Stewart Scalloped Dot punch in two colours. Sugar Nellie Fizz stamped and coloured with Promarkers on Oval Scalloped Nestie, inked around the edge. Added some Papermania Glitter dots (out of Xmas Goody Bag) for bubbles and glittered detail on dress.

The sentiment is printed off word and added onto a Blossom Nestie. Spotty flower (from Craftwork Cards) and jewel brad to finnish.

Millie and Chelsea's birthday cards

Well I've had birthday cards to make for both my Daughter's, my youngest, Millie is two tomorrow and Chelsea is 11 on Tuesday. Where does the time go?

Millie is a huge Night Garden fan so it had to have that on. I used Colour and Print sheets from the Cbeebies Website and googled an image for the background.

Since I've started stamping I don't really like any of my earlier decoupage cards and I'm not really keen on this, but I know she'll love it.

Chelsea loves High School Musical but I wanted to do her a nice stamped one and her favourites are Miss Anya, so I used four of them on this. I'll make her a HSM one from her Brothers and Sister.

I used an 8 x 8 card blank and papers from a The English Paper Company, picked this pack up from a local market, not heard of them before. Stamped the images on Nestie Labels 4 and edged with ink, coloured with Promarkers. Added some Sizzix swirls flowers and a ribbon. Made a couple of shoe charms into earrings and hooked through middle of ribbon. The sentiment inside is by Cloud 9 and reads " Daughter's are little girls that grow up to be your best friend".

New Cards

I've been busy trying to get a variety of cards into my stockpile as I've got a stall to do at a Fundraising day next Sunday, I was in need of some male cards and as not everyone likes cute cards thought I'd add some humerous ones too. Still need to do a few more, but I'm sure there will be an occasion I forget, there usually is. Here's some of them anyway.

These are two of the new Manga stamps from Funky Kits. They are fabulous and great fun to colour. I even had a go at black hair for a change.

The next ones are from a Stamp set by Creative Expressions called "Murray and Ethel" these are just the Ethel ones, still to do Murray.

The males ones are Charmed Cards digital downloads from the "Mikey Collection" . I've not really used downloads before so it was trail and error printing them to the right size, also found the images kept smudging. Think I've cured this with a blast of the heat gun though.

Another 2 in 1

This time it's for the Passion for Promarkers which I won last week, he he and the Docrafts Gorjuss Girls challenge.

The Dc one, set by the fabulous Creative Coops, whose cards are always stunning, is obviously to have a Gorjuss Girl on with pink on and buttons. The Passion for Promarkers is a sketch challenge in any colours.

I've used Kay & Co Sparkly Sweet papers, some pearl card from my stash, oval and circle nesties and a cuttlebug daisy embossing folder. Some Dovecraft paper flowers with buttons for the centre.

Thank you

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my cards. I really enjoy making them and it's nice to know other people like them too.

A few of you asked about the freebie flower download. I've managed to track it down at


I'm sure I got it from somewhere else though. Going to have to keep a record of what and where I download stuff.

Not up to much today, full of a cold and really want to go to bed, but no such luck with four children.

Hope you have a nice day, looks like the sun is actually coming out today.
