I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #34 - Pearls & Swirls
Here we are again, another wednesday and the last in September already. How the year is flying by and we are rapidly approaching October and the Halloween season.
This week Challenge #34 on I ♥ Promarkers is sponsored by Pollycraft and we have the theme of 'Pearls & Swirls'.
For my DT card this week I've used this adorable image from Pollycraft called 'Ginger Pumpkin'. I love how her little kitty is peeking around the top of the pumpkin.
I coloured her with Promarkers and added Glossy Accents to the pumpkin before cutting her out with a nestabilities die, adding Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink while the die was still in place. The purple background layer and the orange oval layer were embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders and the black swirl was cut using a Tim Holtz for Sizzix bigz die. I added a little Diamond Stickles to the Prima flower and punched the fronds from black card using a Martha Stewart punch. The beads and pearls are from my stash and the cobweb is a Magnolia stamp.
I do hope you'll enter the challenge this week and I look forward to seeing your creations.
Til next time, Happy Crafting !

Back to School - with a difference!
Well dear reader, September is almost over and we are well and truly into the Autumn/Winter season. Summer holidays are just a distant memory for many people and the children are settled into a new school year. The Queen Kat Designs DT blog hop today
has the theme of 'Back to School' and there are so many ways to interpret this theme. As part of the hop my card is posted on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog and if you'd like to do the whole hop just go here and follow the links.
Now you may have to run to keep up with my creative process for this one!!!
I often work on planning my projects by jotting down words, colours, anything that the theme brings to mind. I just allow my mind to wander in whatever direction it chooses, hoping that I will finally arrive at something usable.
The school year starts in the Autumn/Fall so I immediately thought of all the fabulous rich colours that surround us at this time of year. The trees are all changing from their summer greens to an amazing array of reds, golds and oranges. The word 'school' also made me think of fish ! Still with me? I hope so!
I now had rich colours and fish on my ideas sheet and thought of the beautiful QKD Koi Pond stamp which was perfect to fit my idea. I also have this great Cuttlebug embossing folder of Koi in water, which again was ideal for my project.
I coloured the beautiful Koi Pond in autumnal shades with Copics and Promarkers and used a piece of DCWV 'Taj Mahal' paper for the background layer. I cut out a piece of green card with an oval nestabilities die and embossed it with the Koi folder. This lovely distressed Prima flower has been in my embellishment box for a while, and again, the colours are just right for my project. I punched out some leaves from white card and coloured them with Promarkers then added the gems and gem flowers to the bottom right to balance the layout.
I hope you've enjoyed my interpretation of the 'Back to School' theme - til I see you again, Happy Crafting!

Just Cute Bears Challenge #36 - Swirls & Bling
Happy Sunday morning to you, hope it's a great day whatever you have planned!
This week Just Cute Bears Challenge #36 has the theme of 'Swirls & Bling'. For my DT card I used this sweet girly bear with her huge teapot, from Cuddly Buddly.
The background paper is from the DCWV Pocketful of Posies stack. I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers, adding touches of Stickles and Glossy Accents before cutting her out with a deckle edge rectangle nestabilities die. The image was then attached to a layer of golden yellow card cut with a larger die from the same set. The lacy edges top and bottom were cut with a Martha Stewart border punch from cream card and the swirls punched out using an EK Success punch. I finally added amber coloured gems in two sizes to the swirls and sentiment to give me swirls and bling for the theme.
I hope you'll enter our challenge this week, we love visiting your blogs to check out your projects.

This week's challenge over on the Craft Mad and Loving it group on Craftbubble, we are asked to use only words on our projects, no images.
I decided to use autumnal shades on this challenge card for two reasons. Firstly, because the recent chilly mornings have definitely made me feel that Autumn is here and secondly, my very first Stamping Up! order arrived including this really lush ribbon and I just couldn't wait to use some of it!
The background paper is a magazine freebie, the words stamp is by Funstamps which I picked up from a bargain bucket at my local craft shop - The Art Centre in Kelly Bray - for a couple of pounds. I cut the swirly leaves using a Marianne Designs die and the rust colour card under the sentiment layer was cut using a deckle edge rectangle nestabilities die and the gems and length of mesh were in my stash.
It's good to stretch yourself and do something a little different for a change and this was a great challenge for doing this.
Til next time - Happy Crafting!

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #33 - White on White
Are you ready for another I ♥ Promarkers challenge? I do hope so as Challenge #33 launches today.
This week's theme is 'White on White' - the only colour allowed is on the image, the rest of your project must be all white. Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop's Best and this sweet Candy House image is available from their on-line store here if you'd like to get it for yourself. Of course, if you enter this week you could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend in their store.
I decided to create a small sweetie bag holder for my project this week. The side-on view to the right shows the inside a little more clearly. There are sweeties in mine, but you could put anything you wish inside the cello bag, possibly a gift card, or some stamped images or ribbons if it is a gift for a crafting pal.
I do hope you are able to enter this week, I love visiting all the blogs to leave comments on the entries.

ORANGE, GREEN, PURPLE,
BLACK and WHITE.
Now I know this collection of colours screams "Halloween", but me being such a rebel, I decided not to make a Halloween card for the Queen Kat Designs blog hop this week! As part of the Hop, my card is posted on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog and if you'd like to do the hop just start here and follow the links.
It's so long since I brought the lovely Verona out to play from my stamp stash that I thought I'd use her for today's project.
This fabulously wild piece of colourful paper has been languishing in my stash for a long time - I just didn't want to use it up, but it was just so perfect for today's challenge as it has all the right colours in the design.
I coloured Verona with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, keeping the background very pale to emphasise the main image. Verona is such an elegant, chic and serene mermaid and I love the contrast with the wildly eclectic background paper. I added a piece of this lovely shiny orange ric rac ribbon from my stash and coloured some white flowers with an orange Promarker to match the paper. The fronds were cut with a Martha Stewart punch from white card and coloured to match the image. The final touch was adding Diamond Stickles to the flowers, the frills on Verona's outfit and the bubbles in the background.
Hope to see you again soon when I'll be bringing you another project with a different theme - til then Happy Crafting!

I'm back! from my trip 'north of the border' that is! Our trip to Scotland last week was very busy but we got to spend time with lots of relatives who we haven't seen for many years. The weather was unkind to us at the start of the week, but, following a sharp hail storm on tuesday, it improved a great deal by the time we were leaving for home. We were able to spend a couple of hours at the Roman Fort at Chesters on the way home. The fort is along Hadrian's Wall and part of it was actually built into the wall. I'll share a few piccies of the trip over the next few days for anyone who is interested.
I hope you've enjoyed the posts I pre-scheduled to publish whilst I was away and it appears they all posted at the right time!
I've missed my crafting and couldn't wait to get stuck right in almost as soon as I arrived home. Yesterday a new sketchie challenge launched on the 'Craft Mad and Loving It' group on Craftbubble. This week there's a sketch and the theme of 'Santa' for our projects.
This jolly chap and his cute companion plus the sprigs of holly are from a set of stamps by Kan Ban, and I cut the image out using a bauble shaped nestabilities die. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Copics, adding Glossy Accents dusted with Glamour Dust on the hat, jacket and scarf trims.
The background paper was a magazine freebie from last Christmas and the small scalloped squares were cut with another nestie die set, the snowflakes punched from a scrap of gold mirror card and the sentiment from a small Christmas set of stamps I have in my collection.
It's nice to go away, but soooo... nice to be back in my own bed and be reunited with my craft stash! Does that make me a sad person? !!
I am so pleased to see new Followers have joined my blog while I was away, welcome to you and thanks to my regular Followers for continuing to support me in my crafting journey - I do so appreciate you all :o)

This 'cute as a button' kitty is one of the fabulous new designs by Che Gilson for Queen Kat Designs. I just adore Che's artwork and Neko Chan has got to be one of my favourites so far, she is just too sweet!
I based my card on the sketch for last week on the Craft Mad and Loving It group challenge on Craftbubble. As I'm away from home at the moment, I had only the few colours of Promarkers that my Dad has in his stash to use. It is amazing how you can manage with very few colours in an emergency! At least I now know that I can use Spice brown to add a darker shadow to areas coloured in red!
I snaffled some pieces of oriental themed papers and corregated card from Dad's stash too, plus a short length of gold ribbon and some gold shaped sequins. Finally I added a little Glossy Accents to her shoes, comb, hair accessories and bag to give them added dimension and cut the image out with a scalloped oval nestabilities die.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today, I hope you've enjoyed sharing today's project as much as I enjoyed creating it.

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #32 - Rip It Up!
For this week's challenge over on I ♥ Promarkers, there's a sketch and a theme - both of them by little old me!!! Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the winner will have $15 to spend in their online store.
I had so much fun with my DT card for this challenge - this is the type of card I had in mind when I designed the sketch and the 'Rip it Up' theme.
I used this great Manga Goth Girl stamp from Sugar Nellie, she came to live with me very recently thanks to the Funky Kits sale.
I coloured her with Promakers and added Spica glitter pen over parts of the image. I punched holes in the tartan paper with my Cropadile and threaded a length of thonging through to lace the two pieces of paper together. I used Black Soot Distress Ink around edges of the base card and the bottom layer of paper was distressed and torn around the edges. The larger tear in the top right stapled back together and I distressed around the image layer with Stormy Skies DI. The sentiment is from a great set of 'Anyone Can Stamp' by Hero Arts. I love this black on purple lace effect paper from the Papermania Aqua Capsule Collection pack and just tore around the edges of the scrap used under the image layer.
It would be great to see an entry from you for the challenge this week, you have the choice of using just the sketch or both sketch and theme, it's up to you. I look forward to visiting your blogs and checking out your projects.

Echo Lily Tri-Fold
Happy Tuesday morning dear reader. Every Tuesday the Queen Kat Designs DT run a blog hop to share our projects. My projects are posted on the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog as part of the hop, but I also like to share it here. If you'd like to take part in the Hop, start here and follow the links to see all the projects.
This week we are challenged to work with the great
sketch on the right and I've chosen the newly released Echo Lily stamp for my project and created a tri-fold shutter card.
Here's a side-on view of the card which shows the tri-fold aspect more clearly.
I decided to use a sheet from the 12 x 12 DCWV Taj Mahal pack. It's a great design and needs no extra embellishing other than the delightful Lily, some pearls and a sentiment!
I coloured Lily with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers in shades to match the card base design, before cutting out with an oval nestabilities die. I set the image layer on dark blue pearlised card cut with a slightly larger oval scalloped nestie die.
The flowers were originally white and I coloured them with a Promaker to match the background and added Diamond Stickles for a pretty effect.
I always think shutter cards have big impact and yet are relatively simple to make. There's a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers if you'd like to try one for yourself. The closed card fits into a C6 envelope for mailing too which is so cool!
Thanks for visiting today, I hope you've enjoyed seeing my project and look forward to welcome you back again soon - til then Happy Crafting!

Charlie's new 'Best Blankie'
Good morning dear readers. I thought I'd give you a bit of a break from my card projects today and share with you another project I completed recently.
My youngest grandson Charlie asked me to make him a new Blankie as his 'old faithful' is virtually falling apart. The Blankie (as I'm sure you know) is a very treasured posession at bedtime and when you're feeling a little poorly - snuggling up with it makes you feel so much better, don't you think?
Well, I took Charlie along to choose some yarn with which to create his new 'Best Blankie, and as you can see, he wanted a very bright and colourful item!
It's just a simple crocheted square, using each colour for as long as that ball of yarn lasted and with a simple scalloped edging. He was so pleased when I presented him with the finished item recently and Grandma gained a few extra 'brownie points' for being so 'clever' (smile....)
Thanks for dropping by today, hope you've enjoyed your visit. Til I see you next time - Happy Crafting!

Sugar Bowl Challenge #43
Over on the Sugar Bowl blog, Challenge #43 this week has a truly scrumptious prize for the lucky winner. How would you like to get your inky mits on either the 4 new Sugar Nellie Country Cousins stamps, which are just about to be launched, or all 4 of the Sugar Nellie Manga Christmas stamps? How could a girl choose between these two fabulous prizes? But it doesn't stop there.. Oh no! whichever set of stamps the winner chooses, they will also get a whole bundle of sweet Papermania goodies, including 2 sets of ‘sentiments’ rubber stamps and a selection of ‘monochrome capsule collection’ embellishments including glitter, buttons, bows and bling! Bet you're drooling all over your keyboard just reading this?
For my entry I chose the lovely Raven from the Sugar Nellie Country Cousins range which are available through Funky Kits. Isn't she adorable all bundled up and cosy against the Autumn winds?
I have been using Promarkers and Copics such a lot on my work lately that I thought I'd do something different for a change and used Distress Inks to watercolour the image. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this method of colouring and you may see some more of my work done using these inks, especially now that there are so many more colours available. I cut out the image, added some glossy accents to her wellies and buttons and affixed her to the green circle layer using Pinflar Glue, with more glue behind her feet to raise them to give the impression that she's walking out of the card.
My background paper is from a pad by Laura Ashley on which I stamped various swirls in Rich Cocoa Memento ink. The plain circle and tabs are cut from some lovely pearly dark green card which is one of my favourites bought at the NEC craft show last March. I stamped a swirling leaf image by Magnolia around the edges of the green layer with the same cocoa ink which gives a very subtle effect. I added the green layer over red card cut with a nestabilities petite scallop circle die which was just slightly larger than the plain circle die I used for the green layer. The sentiment is by Magnolia, red half beads were in my stash, as were the three buttons and I added some Holly Stickles around the edge of the green circle to finish.
I'm entering this for Sugar Bowl Challenge #43, so wish me luck!

I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #31 - Transport
Are you ready for another I ♥ Promarkers challenge? Well this week we have the theme of Transport, any type of transport - just let your imagination run wild! and our prize is sponsored by Letraset, whoo....hooooo!
For my DT card I chose this really 'cool' stamp - 'Angela on Scooter 'by Rubber Romance. It's such a chic girly image with lots of attitude!
To go with this great image I used some retro style paper that was a magzine freebie a while ago. I coloured the image with Promarkers, of course, and added Holly Stickles to her top and shoes to give her a little bling and Glossy Accents to her sunglasses and on the headlight of the scooter. The sentiment was created on the comupter, printed out in pink and cut out with a circle nestie die. I cut two more circles each slightly larger than the last and coloured these with PMs to match the background paper. Finally I added pink star shaped gems to the sentiment - a simple layout but with lots going on in the image and background. I hope you've enjoyed my project and that you'll enter this week's challenge, I'm so looking forward to popping along and viewing your projects.

Mad Fancy and Friends
Happy Tuesday dear reader, boy are the weeks flying by now, September already! I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but in the UK there is definitely an autumnal feel to the days now, but don't you just love all the fabulous rich autumn colours around.
As it's tuesday, there's a blog hop going on with the Queen Kat Design Team and this is the project I am showing on the Whimsical Ink Sorority Blog as part of the Hop. If you'd like to do the hop just start here and follow the links.
I decided that as she was called Mad Fancy, I'd be a little more outrageous with my colouring and colour scheme. I've often used this lovely lady before but not with this fabulous background., so my project has a sort of monochromatic scheme, but with a kick!
The fabulous black and white papers are from one of the older QKD kits. I love the asymetric stripe and the circles paper just makes me think 'oriental' - I think it looks very much like chinese coins or is that just my vivid imagination!!. I stamped the lilies from the August WIS kit either side of the main image to match the sketch and I think they're just the perfect touch.
My girl has purple hair, is dressed in black and white and I added peachy/oranges to her Flamingo Friends so they pop against the more muted shades in the rest of the background. I coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers and added lots of Spica Glitter pen to her tail and beads. This gorgeous black lace has been languishing in my ribbon bag for a while and I just thought it added a tiny touch of feminity to this bold and surreal image!
I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, do leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this new QKD mermaid, I do so love to hear from you.
Til next time - Happy Crafting!

Just Cute Bears goes Dotty
Well I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but it's raining 'cats and dogs' in Cornwall today. So flippin' cold and dark it's like the middle of winter - brrrrrr.......! I'm just glad that I'm not camping in this weather.
Today's card includes this sweet little chap from Cuddly Buddly, he's so cute and cosy curled up in his tea cup, don't think the rain is bothering him at all!
This week's challenge on Just Cute Bears is 'Going Dotty' so I've paired up my cute bear with some lovely dotty papers from a pack by K & Company. Even the image has a dotty border around the edge.
I coloured the image with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers and added some Liquid Pearls in the centre of the flowers and touches of clear Spica Glitter pen to the butterflies' bodies. There's a little Glossy Accents on Teddy's nose and the butterflies' wings to add a bit of dimension. The teapot and teacup were from the same set of stamps as the main image and I popped them up on some Pinflair Glue after rounding them a little with my bone folder. The dotty ribbon was in my stash and I used the Fiskars Threading Water border punch on a strip of cream card as there are dots in the punched design. Finally, I added some faux stitching by using a pricking tool all round the edges and then drawing lines between each hole with a brown pearly Sakura pen.
I'm entering my card for the Just Cute Bears Challenge this week - wish me luck!

Happy 13th Birthday
Happy Sunday morning dear readers, I don't know what it's like where you are, but after a beautiful warm and sunny day yesterday, it is dull and raining down here in Cornwall today and there's a definite chill in the air. Oh well, I guess many people have finished their holidays and are back home ready for the children to start back to school next week. Summer has moved into Autumn and already some of the trees are changing colour.
Today's card is my entry for the sketchie challenge this week for the Craft Mad and Loving It group over on Craftbubble. The twist to go with the sketch this week is 'zig zag' and so I decided to make this tri-fold shutter card so that the whole card is a zig zag.
This is the card I've made for my eldest grandson's thirteenth birthday next week. I do hope he likes it! I used this great Sugar Nellie image and coloured him with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers. There's Stormy Skies Distress Inks added around the edges of the image layer and the papers were magazine freebies. I created the sentiment and the number 13 on my computer and also added a little Glossy Accents to the headlight and wing mirrors on the scooter.
Til next time - Happy Crafting !

Three Birds in the Bush!
Good morning dear reader :o) Hope you're enjoying your weekend. As promised, I'm sharing with you the other little card I made with the left overs from the white on white card and the American Traditional Designs Snow Day pack. I thought this little topper was so sweet and with a little glitter added it was a great focal point for my card.
I had a few strips of the double sided paper left and attached them showing alternate sides on the base card and added a little Frosted Lace Stickles along the joins. The embossed sentiment panel was the final bit of the white on white leftovers and again I added Frosted Lace around the edges.
Quick, easy and painless - what more can you ask? That's one more christmas card added to my stock too - result!
Thanks for stopping by today, it's a pleasure to 'see' you.
Good day dear reader, today I'm sharing an unusual card with you!
I rarely ever use ready made toppers on my cards these days, but I recently bought a christmas goody bag from my local Art Shop and in it was a sheet of rather nice decoupaged toppers. All the items in the goody bag are by American Traditonal Designs and are from their Snow Day range.
I had a few bits and pieces left from the white on white card I made recently and used one of the pieces of card which I'd embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used this over a piece of the doubled-sided paper from the pack, turning the top right corner down and attaching a snowflake brad to hold it down and another on the base card.
I added glitter to the skating snowie topper and a small snowflake topper from the set, to bling them up a bit. More glitter round the edges of the sentiment and a quick and easy card was finished.
I made one other card with the remaining bits and pieces and I'll be sharing that with you in the next couple of days.

Just for Lauren!
Welcome dear reader, today's project is dedicated to a great crafting pal of mine, Lauren (aka Blue Bertie). She has a large number of animals, all with huge personalities and she keeps me amused with her tales of the adventures and mishaps of her motley crew, particularly those involving 'Bad Bertie' the Clumber Spaniel and the Ninja Chickens ! I kid you not!
One of her recently related adventures involved BB and an early morning jog up the road in her PJs! As I was looking through my ready stamped images, I came across this cute little image and it all fitted into place perfectly. PJ's, bunny slippers (which I have a feeling she may just wear!) and a blue teddy - she is an avid knitter of toys, particularly bears.
I followed this week's sketch on the Craftbubble 'Craft Mad and Loving It' challenge to make this sweet little card. I don't know the manufacturer of the stamp as I received the image in a RAK some time ago. If you know, please do enlighten me! The paper is from Papermania and the little lacy strip was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. Coloured with Copics and Promarkers and the image layer edged with one of the blue PMs. The ticket stamp is from a set by Hero Arts.
It's so nice to see new Followers signing up and I'd like to say a big hello and welcome and to thank all my Followers for their continued support. I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, do pop over to Lauren's blog and sign up as a Follower, I'm sure she'd love to see you :O)

Sugar Bowl Challenge #42
Good morning dear reader, now that the last Bank Holiday of the year is well and truly over, I'm really getting into the swing of creating the christmas cards I need for this year.
Sugar Bowl, challenge #42 gives us the great sketch on the right to work with and a theme of 'pearls'.
I do love to work with simple sketches as I think they give you so much scope to let your creativity run wild! I turned the sketch round by 90 degrees to balance the image I chose a little better as it is quite tall and narrow.
This sweet Sugar Nellie 'Snow Family' image is just perfect for my project and rather than solid strips I decided to use some decorative pieces which I'd punched using a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch. I coloured the image with Copics, although I have very few colours I had sufficient to get the shading right for this image. The bits to create the poinsettia were in my stash from last Christmas and I added one of the new sparkly brads I just recently acquired. The sentiment was also in my box of bits and I cut it out with a small circle nestabilties die and added three small blue half pearls, which fits right in with the theme. I inked up the edges of both image layer and the sentiment with Stormy Skies Distress Ink. Glossy Accents added to their carrot noses and Stardust Stickles to their buttons and around the edges of the image layer and my card was finished.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's card and that you'll stop by again soon.
