Mid month reminder for Penny Black and More Challenges - Make it Feminine....


Good morning!

Here I am with the mid month reminder for Penny Black and More Challenges for the theme this month which is "Make it Feminine".

For this creation I have kept things very feminine with a pink theme and roses!

My sun/moon has come out rather dark in my photo but it's a beautiful shiny mirrored pink card - impossible with a camera!

I have used Penny Black sets 40-511 Crimson Blush, 30-457 .....So Loved, 30-416 Happy Thoughts and 30-095 Flower Festival.

Alcohol pens and ink pads have coloured the images and background.

Hope you can come and join us at Penny Black and More Challenges and remember NO DIGITAL IMAGES ALLOWED please.


There are prizes to be won!!!!

It was Christmas in July!!!???




Morning!!

Well, back in July, as always happens, we all kick off with the sale of Christmas stamps and goodies!

Sheena Douglass was no exception and I was sent some lovely Christmas stamps to have a play with and I've posted three of them here for you.

I've used a combination of products throughout these, the first one having had sparkle pens the second  one has had distress oxides and the last one is also distress oxides.

That last one shows that these are not just for Christmas, I made this one in to a Congratulations card so suitable for a winter wedding, a Christening or even an anniversary card?

Hope you like them,

New Theme at Penny Black and More Challenges - Make it Feminine.....


Good morning!

Here I am with a new theme over at Penny Black and More Challenges and this month it's "Make it Feminine!".

My thoughts for making it feminine here were the two fabulous female friends - looks like a girlie shopping trip to me!

I had great fun on this card using Penny Blacks stamp set 40-429 Fab Friend.  Other sets used are 30-284 Sprigs, 51-181 Love is Growing die set (which I have also used the cut out piece as a stencil too - so positive and negative used), and 30-095 Flower Festival.

I coloured in with alcohol markers and ink pads using a foam applicator.

Do come and join us at Penny Black and More Challenges for a new months challenge - there are prizes to be won!

Happy 50th Birthday James!




Morning!

I'm having a personal share this morning.

Husband James was 50 (shhh!!) back in the middle of July so I've made room here on the blog between my other scheduled posts to show you my makes for his "big birthday".

Cars and militaria are right at the top of James's hobby list so of course, they had to reflect on these subjects.  So did his gift (tickets to Goodwood Festival of Speed) and his cake!

Hope you like them - James certainly did!

Mid month reminder at Penny Black and More Challenges....


Morning!

Well, we're half way through August so it's time for the mid month reminder over at Penny Black and More Challenges.

This months theme is "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B" and this time my 
"B" is butterflies, blooms and the colour blue!

I have used the Penny Black stamp 40-099 Soft Wings for my butterflies, stamped twice with Sheena's Douglass's sparkle pens direct to stamp technique and the colour drawn out - gives you a lovely hand painted effect - (unfortunately, no matter how hard I tried, I can't get the beautiful sparkle from the pens to show on a photo).

Background is distress oxide and the lovely little flowers are Penny Black 30-284 Sprigs with the 30-419 Happy Wishes set for the sentiment.

Please do come over and join us at Penny Black and More Challenges :-

New theme at Penny Black and More Challenges, "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B"....



Hi there!

Sharing a make today that I've made for Penny Black and more Challenges and their new theme this month of "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B".

I've used Sheena Douglass's sparkle pens on this one along with Penny Black stamps - 30-416 Happy Thoughts (used only one word from a sentiment from this set), 40-571 Feathers and Twigs, 40-340 Etched Branches and 51-397 Antique Frame die set.

My thoughts here were B for Blue Tit, bird, branches, brambles, beak, blue and brown!
