Sarahscards Oct kit

Sarah of Sarahscards decided a couple of months ago to discontinue the Card making kits and just concerntrate on her fabulous Scrapbooking kits (along with all the other fabulous stash she stocks), so now lucky me gets a huge kit to make cards with!
The October kit is now beginning to find it's way to the subscribers homes (postal strikes permitting), so i can now share a few of the cards i made with the kit, which featured the gorgeous Pink Paislee - Amber Road, i have to admit it took me a while to start cutting into it, as the papers were so lush, but once i started i couldn't stop.

Christmas treat bags

For the toppers on cute little Christmas treat bags i have used the Christmas All Around set from The Cutting Cafe'.
I used flock on the ducks body and my favorite thing at the mo, Polar White Flower Soft for the fur on his hat, which also features on the mittens. Again i have used my circle Nellies Multi Frame dies to cut the mats.
These are so quick to make, just print out the toppers, colour-in/decorate, and attach to candy filled bags!!!

You Rock!!!!

Happy weekend everyone!!! Remember if you're in the UK the clocks go back an hour tonight so you can have an extra hour in bed tomorrow, unless you have have small people in your house who don't seem to understand that Sunday mornings means a lay in.
Anyway here's a card i made last night using You Rock from Squiggle Stamps, i love this little guy, and think by colouring him in shades of grey this card could easily be given to an adult rocker.

Snow pals (my second post today)

Here's one more Ben card to show you this week. I love this cute stamp, and really enjoyed colouring it. I added some Twinklets to the snowflakes, and a little Polar White Flowersoft for a snowy touch, (neither of which show up on the photo), oh and i used a bit of fun flock on his bobble too.
You can grab Ben and his Snow Pal here.

I followed this sketch from the new Pixie Cottage challenge blog, which i found out about via Tara, who is one of my teamies on the Squiggles Stamps DT.

The sentiment is from the new printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe', it's called CHRISTMAS CIRCLES SET 2 and features 16 assorted word circles.

Hey Dude!

Ben is one talented little guy, not only can he play the guitar, he also skateboards! Here he is looking cool with his board.

This little chap really rocks! and is available to purchase right now from Squiggle Stamps here.The scalloped mat is cut using one of my new Nellie's multi frame dies.

Passion for Promarkers week 21

For this weeks PfP challenge you can use any colours but you must also follow the sketch provided by Gina.

To be honest the jury is out on this one, i don't think the paper roses i made really work, they are far too big, i think maybe it's because the image is quite petite, but they're all stuck on now so that's it. The papers i used are all from Basic Grey Indian Summer 6x6 pad.

and as per usual, here's the colours i used ...........

Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Hope all you cardmakers from all over the world are enjoying your day, and getting creative.

Over on UKScrappers there are a few challenges that have been set by some of the lovely sponsors, who have also donated some prizes. I'm sorry i'm a bit late posting about this, but if you're quick you'll still have time to enter, as you have until midnight GMT on Sunday 4th to upload your creations.

Here's what i've made for the challenges.

For this one the challenge was to use polka dots, glitter and something recycled. The embossed gold mat and sentiment (stamped on with black Stazon), were a tube of tomato puree in a former life.

The image on this one is from Mo's digital Pencil and is coloured in using my Promarkers. The word frame is from The Cutting Cafe Halloween Card Borders.

The FOR MY HUSBAND ON HIS BIRTHDAY circle printable stamp is from The Cutting Cafe'.

And finally i made this little haunted house using the fab template that Tina of FMFY supplied, but i cut the house template (minus the fancy bits) by hand, then cut the embellishments out on my Cricut.

I added a battery tea-light, and this is how it looks when lit-up.
