NBUS Challenge #25

Hello

I have a few cards to share so with fingers crossed hope to be popping in a few times over the next little while to share with you.

Today I thought I would start with some NBUS from Jane’s Doodles.

Thought I best start with these as I have more of Jane’s goodies on their way!

Sloths from Weird
I stamped various leaves in the cut out section before popping up my sloth with foam tabs. All images are coloured with alcohol markers.
Again popped up with foam tabs. I used the cut out from the first card as the mount on this one.
And a little camper! I sponged the background and fussy cut the trees and camper before popping them on with foam tabs.

I am linking up to the current challenge at NBUS here

Pairing NBUS with older sets!…

Hello

Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!

I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!

This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.

A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.

For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.

And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.

Thanks for stopping

A few love inspired cards…

Hello

Today I have a few love inspired cards to share.

First time I have used the set “Dogs” from Jane’s Doodles. I am linking this card up to the current challenge at NBUS.

I used an old PTI stamp set and SU punch for this card.
More PTI!
I used an unnamed bird stamp (it’s so old I have no idea where I got it from!) I created the Heart by making a mask from a die cut, stampinig within the mask then I added some talking lines. To finish I added the sentiment from YNS.
The last one for today uses stamps,dies & punches from SU. I created my own pattern paper by randomly stamping words and images.

I have a few other cards to share too so will be back soon!

Until then stay safe and well in your little part of the world.

Cheers

Wild Flowers…

Hello

I might just make the cut off for the current challenge at Jane’s Doodles #5 here.

 

This card uses another new set for me – Jane’s Doodles Wild Flowers

I coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut and teamed with Kaszazz Speckled frame, PTI sentiment and some die cuts.

 

I was very lucky in the last challenge at Jane’s Doodles – I received an Honorable mention + the random prize!

Until next time

Jane’s Doodles Cactus & Challenge #4

Hello

I recently received the cactus stamp set from Jane’s Doodles and inked it up pretty much straight away! It has been on my wish list for so long.  It was perfect timing to, to join in at the 4th challenge over at Jane’s Doodles.  I can’t believe it has taken me so long to participate! You can find the challenge here

 

I masked a few images into the planter pot and coloured with my water colour pencils and paints. Finished with a statment from a Fiskars set I recently purchased too.


Short and sweet today

Thanks for stopping

Requests …

Hello

I had some card requests recently.  Here are a few of my creations.

First up is Annabelle stamps little monster. Coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut & popped up on card front.

Next I have a couple of cards made using Flourishes Kids at Play with sentiments from Uniquely and Jane’s Doodles.

I also have some Christmas cards to share.  These were inspired by Therese at Lostinpaper here.  These were quick to put together without colouring the elf image.

Thanks for stopping by

Time for a challenge or two…

Hello

I have had a crafty week! I spent yesterday at the very first Altenew Workshop in Australia with the lovely Tasnim (and her family) and Therese from lostinpaper. I got to meet the lovely warm and extremely friendly Therese in person after years of talking through forums and blogs.  I also meet in person the lovely Aileen from colourandsparkle for the first time and loads of other crafty people.  I’ll share more in a later post as the sets we used have not been released yet. Yes I have decided my cards are blog worthy after all.

Anyway on with what else I have been creating.  I received some new sets last week and inked them up straight away – a rare thing indeed!

I have also made a conscience decision to make the NBUS pile on my desk extinct! The first cards are from my NBUS stash.  I do shop at times faster than I can create – I know I am not alone here!

My first card is using Concord and 9th Happy Day set which I have had for a while I teamed this with sentiments from Your next Stamp What not sentiments 4.  I made two cards using this set.  The first I coloured with watercolour pencils and added highlights with markers and the second I coloured with alcohol markers.

The first one I am entering into the challenge at Double D here and Bizzy Bec’s anything goes here.

GRAB OUR BADGE!

and the second card using alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the main image and popped up with foam tabs.

My parcel was from Jane’s Doodles.  Jane had generously offered a free mini cupcake stamp set with orders on the recent International Women’s day.  Here it is coloured with alcohol markers and a sentiment from Jane’s Birthday Wishes set.

I also inked up Jane’s Doodles Magnolia and Mother’s Day sets.

and my last card for today is a request.  For sometime now I have been making cards for mum I know who gives her daughter chick themed cards.  This one is for easter and uses SU Honeycomb Happiness and ABS Easter Chickadee coloured with watercolour pencils and markers.

I commend you for getting to the end of this post! Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time
