Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Week 184: Red & White - Sami Stamps

Good Morning and welcome to another fabulous themed challenge over at Glitter N Sparkle.

This week we have some amazing sponsors and my chosen sponsor is Sami Stamps

I just love their images and have purchased several of them.

So which image did I chose?
Well I got this gorgeous design:

So the theme set is Red & White

And here is what I have created:
I kept it simple as I think it looks more effective.
I coloured the image with Promarkers: Lipstick Red, Berry & Poppy for the dress,
Skin: Blush, Saffron & Pastel Pink
Hair: Primrose, Pastel Yellow & Mustard
Flowers: Crimson
I have used the Promarker blender pen to add shading to the dress.

The backing is a gorgeous Red Polka dot card stock from Anna-Marie Designs purchased at the NEC and I have used a Stamp Set by Stampin Up for the sentiment in the top corner.
White satin ribbon tied in the corner and then I have added red & white pearls to add final details.

I love this image and have coloured it in a few other colours too ready to make more cards.
I hope you like the image and will pop over to take a look at Sami Stamps or pop over to Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog to take part in the Red & White challenge theme.

Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Week: 183 Sun, moon or Stars

Good morning, and welcome to this week's Glitter N Sparkle Challenge which this week the theme is all about:
Moon, Stars or Sun

What a great theme and I have to say I instantly had an idea for this theme and was lucky enough to be given Beccy's Place Digital Images to choose images from.

I fell in love with the Cattitude images and I got this very cute cat image to use on this card
Here is what I have made:

'Cats on Wall under the stars'

I printed 3 different sized cats and then coloured them with promarkers:
Simply used - Raw sienna, Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna and Cool Grey 5

The backing is simply made with silver stamped stars, hand drawn moon and then I added some black star paper clips which are from IKEA. The wall panel is a backing sheet by Kanban Crafts, which I have stamped the 'Moon' sentiment by Docrafts.

It's been a very fun theme and I can imagine we are going to have some fantastic entries over at Glitter N Sparkle
I look forward to seeing all your entries.

Couple in love - Anniversary card ideas

I am trying to make a big push with blogging and entering some challenges and I have to say I love Sami Stamps so when I saw that they were hosting a fabulous challenge with a theme of 'Add pearls or Beads' I thought ooh why not have a go and submit an entry, so here it is:

I coloured the image using Letraset promarkers and went with an older couple
I coloured their hair in shades of cool greys and warm grey's
Skin is Blush, Saffron and Pastel Pink
The lady's dress is done with Marsh Green & Olive Green
The gentleman's attire is Grey green for the jumper and then beige on the trousers.

The backings are from my off cuts box and I have cut the pennant shapes out for added detail on the cards. The sentiment is a Woodware stamp set from Truly Inspired Crafts called Jane's Script.
I have added some pearls to finish the card.

Love the digital images by Sami Stamps and I would love to win some new images, so I've got my fingers crossed :)

Thanks for looking

Week # 182 - Use a Punch or Die Challenge over on the Glitter N Sparkle Blog

Good Morning, I am running a bit late with this blog post today we overslept ;) That's a rare thing in a house with 3 children,

Right now today it's a challenge theme of 
Use a Die or Punch

This Weeks sponsors are:

I was given the task of creating something with the gorgeous Morgan's Artworld Images
and here is the card that I created using Green Cameo Fairy image

The theme elements are the coloured image has been die cut from a Spellbinders label die set and also the black floral silhouette has been die cut using an Xcut Die.

The image has a tattoo that runs across her body which I coloured with Lilacs and soft greens from the Promarker range of colours, which I also incorporated into the rest of the image and on the card itself.
The butterflies are a purchase from a recent Hobby show at the NEC in Birmingham and they just added a splash of colour and foil to the card.

Now it's your turn and you can join in over at Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog
