Teddy Bear x

Good Morning. I can't believe how long it's been scince my last post- i've been so busy and very productive! The demo day went well and i showed people how to make boxes and cards and how to blend promarkers together so i was extremely chuffed!

I had a few goodies too including the new " spring fling " WRS papers ( which are gorgeous xx ) and a PJ stamp aswell as some embellishments of course!! So this card features all the new products. You can buy everything i've used on this card from Lyndsey at Lora Crafts- apart from the large pearls which i bought from an Ebay Shop. The ribbon is lush isn't it lol? I love the checked design and i just added it on top of the raffia for some added detail and texture.

Here's the gorgeous images and the promarkers i've used:
Vanilla, tan, cinamon, blush, pastel pink, pale pink, apricot, honeycomb, pastel yellow, blossom, pastel blue, powder blue, and meadow green.

Here are the challenges i'm entering my card into:

  1. One Stop Craft: Swirls and pearls
  2. Sweet Stampin Challenge: Pimp your card
  3. Stampacular: Pearls and Swirls
    Well, thankyou so much for visiting, please leave a comment if you have the time, i really appreciate them and love hearing what you have to say x

My first item is a bagalope which i so easy to make!! If you pop along to the Demo Day on Saturday they'll be loads of demo's and ideas of how to make beautfiful gifts.

I've also created a lovely little wallhanger with chipboard shapes and the yummy new Hampstead Range!! Which is full of autumnal colours- warm browns and oranges etc. which really work well with the Sarah Kays. This cutie pie has been colourd with whispers, waterolour pencils and pro-markers- so a bit of a mix.

Here's a little close-up of the image and embellishments: the pins are so gorgeous and you would not believe how many designs Lyndsey has on offer in so many colours and designs! :D

Anya Easel Card

Good Evening everyone, hope your all well. Gosh, just when the weather was looking on the bright side... it starts to rain! It's been sooooooo cold today... brrrrr, so i made a commisioned card snug and warm in my craft room/ bedroom ;D I've made an easel card for this weeks Creative Inspirations Challenge, and guess what- i didn't use a Tilda! :D I can't believe it; i'd become so addicted but i couldn't put my Anyas to the side and i've bought a few digi's recently and i LOVE them!
I've used my Basic Grey Sugar Rush papers again- so i can enter my card into this weeks BG Challenge too which is a photo inspiration. Another challenge my card fits into is this weeks Charisma Challenge which is girly- i think i qualify! lol. And Anyone For Anya- Lotsa Layers.
I've coloured this gorgeous Anya with Pro-markers and highlighted with my inkessentials white gel pen.

And guess what came on Thursday..... my personalised stamp!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, i can't believe it- i love it and i would recommend Nikki at Bunny-Zoes Crafts to everyone.... fantastic service- thanyou xx And here it is:
