Meljen's Challenge Blog entry - Sketch

This weeks challenge was using a Sketch layout. I decided to turn the sketch round so i could use this brilliant image I have coloured waiting for the perfect card to use it on. 
I have coloured the lovely lady using my promarkers and in a variety of shades of pink. I wanted to create the idea of picture frame so used a sizzix die to cut the ornate frame and then embellished the frame using the sketch layout with pearl hearts, a butterfly and some paper flowers.
I hope the ladies over at Meljen designs blog it

New baby Card

I decided to make a gate fold card for this order, haven't made one for ages. I used first edition paper pads for the patterned pieces and Stampin Up pale blue card stock for layering.
The Teddy was a digi decoupage image I bought many years ago. 

Inside again I used a sheet from the First Edition Paper pads  and then added the SU card die cut and stamped the sentiment.
Simple but effective looking card.

Wedding cards Using Dreamees rubber stamps

At one of the papercrafting shows at the national motorcycle museum last year I purchased this little corker of a bride & groom stamp. I have used it quite a few times now but recently popped this creation together to show a florist who wanted to stock my cards in their shop.
I have used promarkers to colour the image in. I then used various die cut shapes in various papers. All finished with a woodware ribbon.
Pop by and say hi to Dreamees over @  Dreamees Stamps & Cd's also they have a facebook page too.

I decided to try lots of different colour combinations and layouts so here is another version
I use a mixture of Promarkers and Copics to colour my images

I make a lot of Wedding themed cards and when I saw this next image I just had to get it and made this card up to show everyone.
I designed an A5 sized easel card and used a turquoise colour scheme. I added paper flowers, pearls and a simple sentiment to finish it off.

Snow White Art Canvas - Sketch Saturday Inspired

Starting off as I mean to go on in 2013 and entering another challenge today. This one is the Sketch Saturday Blog Challenge. We were given a set sketch to follow and decided as I was planning on making an art canvas for my daughter I thought I would incorporate the sketch into the design.

I have used a Saturated Canary Snow White themed image and coloured with my promarkers mainly bright colours to make her stand out. I have used a mixture of backing elements and then added the cross with two colours of ribbons (Red dotty is woodware, Blue satin is a remnant). To finish I have stamped onto a die cut frame and made the mirror with mirri card and then added the buttons to finish the sketch.
I hope they like the design, my daughter certainly does.
