Woo hoo Martha Stewart punch arrived

Really pleased my new punch arrived so have been able to play. Its the Martha Stewart doily border punch. Have used my sarah kay stamp coloured with copics. Background paper is craftwork cards along with the flowers and sentiment. Grosgrain ribbon from my stash and a papermania jewelled brad for the centre of the flower.

Been Busy

Bought another Sarah Kay stamp!! Have used papermania exquiste papers cut out with my labels nestabilitie , copic marker pens to colour in and embellished with a craftworkcards flower and butterfly. Still got loads of coloured images to make into cards. I have also used the copic spica glitter pens on the spots of the bow and the centre of the flowers.

5 minutes for crafting

Have just started to make this card with a lovely sugar nellie stamp from Funky kits . I have not quite finished as it needs a sentiment adding but will wait until I know who I am sending it to. I was lucky enough to get a lucky bag and this was one of the stamps included. Coloured with copic pens.I have used my cuttlebug swiss dots emboss folder and nestabilities. I have used some self adhesive silver border but am awaiting my first Martha stewart punch.

Colouring In

Lots of colouring in later!!! Now I need to make some cards. A selection of Pink Gem, Sarah Kay, Sugar Nellie, Wild Rose Studio and penny black stamps ( see links of favourite websites on the right) I have been playing with my copic marker pens and I love love love them !!!

Last Minute

Made this at the last minute as father's day sort of crept up on me! Coloured in with my copic pens and a bit of glossy accents.

Here is a picture of a birthday card I made for an 11 year old. I used the crafters delight fairy castle template and decorated with smirk decoupage. The girl waving from the window is from a set from the woodware clear range and was coloured in with Sakura glitter pens. Word of warning don't make the same mistake as me and make sure you position the largest turret so it will fit in an A4 envelope!!!

Cant wait...

I have been happily colouring in my stamped images but am waiting on a delivery of some petite oval nesties before I can complete my cards. I couldn't understand why my Sarah Kay stamps wouldn't fit on my classic ovals but have found out that the petite ones are bigger!!. Apparently the petite refers to the size of the scallop and not the oval. My preference at the moment are my copic pens but I coloured an image with my whisper pens tonight and you really can see a difference. The whisper pens really do show a different effect and give more of a watercolour feel whereas the copics do look like blocks of colour. I need to get a move on with Fathers day cards as its nearly here.... oh no....

Or maybe not

Well what do you know...... Just spent about an hour messing about with this trying to get the text to show and sssh it seems to be working now.

Having Trouble

Having real trouble getting my text to show

Here is my May swap for Crafttelly. The theme was fabric and butterflies.

I am a member of Crafttelly and I joined in a swap where each participant sent some unwanted stash and we had to produce a card to send on to another member. I thoroughy enjoyed this swap. Here is a picture of the stash and the card

Yet another Sarah Kay made up with the image I coloured from my class.Here is the link to Alisons Blog Messy Stamper. Alison is the lady who taught the class on Sunday anf great fun was had by all. The class was organised by Windmill crafts my local craft shop and it was great to be with other like minded people for 3 hours. Although rather jealous of some of the other ladies stash of copic pens!!!

Another Sarah Kay stamp coloured in using copic markers

This is a card I made at a recent copic class and I used a Sarah Kay stamp. I really love the cute images in this set and the copic ciao markers just finish it off
This is a card I made earlier with the fabulous stamps from Pink Gem designs.
I love all of these stamps and Janet has given me great inspiration for my cards.
I am currently in the process of setting up my blog.
