Baby Girl

Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge #15, the rules for this challenge are all white, you are allowed to colour your image and some sponging, here is my entry.
 It's really a challenge to use only white so I went a little crazy with embossing folders, I used Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and one of the new Craft Concepts Folders Budding Vine, I was very impressed with these folders they are available at Bizzy Becs online store at a very reasonable price. I coloured the image with Copic markers E0000, E000, RV32, RV00. I don't know the company that made this image ( it's actually in my miscellaneous box of clear stamps ) I do think it's pretty cute though. Also I sponged with Memento Angel  Pink ink. The pearls are Kaiser craft. Hope you like it. Have a crafty day. Cheryl

Hi All,

When you are new to blogging like I am, sometimes it's enough to drive you crazy. I thought I would like a better background hmmm , but when I put it in out went everything else. Nothing lined up, Nothing looked right, soooo after taking it off and fixing everything back to the way it was which by the way  was working perfectly fine it's all back to normal. Like the old saying "If it's not broken don't fix it" I have learnt my lesson well. I could have spent the last three hours on Cards. Ok I have had a bit of a rant today next time some nice cards promise.

By for now Cheryl

Masculine Cards

Hi All,
Today I thought I would post a couple of masculine cards because if you are anything like me I tend to struggle abit with the male intended ones. First off we have the old truck, this is from a Gina K Designs set called the Journey, copics used N2,N5,B21,B24,Y00,E57. I was very light with the E57 and used the colourless blender to drag the colour along the rail for the aged look. I sponged Memento Summer Sky for the background and London Fog for the trees. The sentiment is Vivid Inky blue & GK CS In the Navy.
Next up I have the wheel from GK Designs stamp set called Farm Life, coloured with copic again, sorry didn't take notes on the colours when I did this, sponged with Memento Desert Sand  & used Nesties label #5 and tags. The twine is from GK . Hope you like them, and I hope they give inspiration for those manly creations.

Penny Black Friends

This is such a cute stamp from penny black, coloured with copic markers.

Hi All,

I am very new to the blogging world, but here goes. I am passionate about card making and paper crafting, and this is what has bought me to this point to create a blog. I will try to share any and all information that I can. My favourite thing at the moment are copic markers and I am trying to build a collection of these.

This image and sentiment is from Flouishes, coloured with copic markers, used Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink for sponging and Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Card Stock Fresh Asparagus. The brads I used were white but I used copic marker RV69 Peony to colour them to match the tulips in the pot.
