Quick card today, tried to do something different with the papers but not really my style of card at all, papers are too contempory for me and not thick enough, managed to crease them while I was sticking them down :( Not sure how I feel about this one, also used rub ons which I never use as I don't get on with them but was trying to use things that have been lying around for a while. Followed a sketch from I need a sketch. I totally love the image and wanted to use it as soon as I saw it, may end up recycling and putting it on another card lol! Entering into Cupcake Craft Challenge's 105 blue and green challenge :)

Card base centura pearl
blue and green papers freebies off Scrapbook inspirations
Rub ons are K & Co I think
Image from Arthur's Free Clipart
buttons from stash

Happy crafting

Blue Winter

Another challenge card, this on is for week 65 Passion for Promarkers Winter Blue challenge, I love this theme, blue is my fav colour :)
The card was a bit of an experiment, I made a couple of mistakes but we'll pretend to not notice those lol! The card can fold down to an A5 size as the side panels fold back rather than forwards and there are three nice panels to decorate on the back too. The snowy background paper is from MCS Crystal sparkles. Glitter card and mirri card from stash. The snowflakes and noel were cut from a couple of sizzlet dies and and horse is coloured with my promarkers and then given a couple of coats of CC spray and shine. Carousel horse is from Beccy's Place she has some gorgeous free images :) The little charm was made from bits and bobs I had laying around, haven't put a sentiment on the card yet cos I'm not sure who it's for lol!

Happy Crafting

Finally uploaded the freebie Coffee & Cupcakes Kit :)

Well I finally got around to finishing the majority of this set, haven't done an Alpha yet and I still have some ideas for other bits and bobs to add to it but they may or may not get added at a later stage. All the papers are A4 size rather than 12 x 12. I haven't shown all the individual elements but you'll get the gist from the previews :)
There are 3 pages of ribbons in jpg format and also the individual png files in the Ribbons zip
1 page of decoupage in jpg format and also the individual png files
lots of individual png elements which can be opened in your graphics program
13 papers in jpg format. Links to the zip files are at the bottom of the post :)

Here's a card I made using the papers and elements.

Freebie linkies ;)

Naughty Meeses!

Another challenge card today, thought I'd enter the all the twos challenge, two flowers, two ribbons & two papers, I also added two very naughty mice lol! The challenge is over at Cupcake Craft Challenges. They have a fun birthday blog hop going on at the mo :) Anyhoo here's the card, sorry for the crappy photo again, my camera is playing up.
House Mouse cupcake stamp from Joanna Sheen, coloured with Promarkers, I adore these stamps and am planning to have them all eventually lol! Edged using a Colorbox chalk inkpad. Gingham paper I made myself in PSPXI and the little mousey footprint paper is from the Crafters Companion Beatrix Potter Two Bad Mice CD. The sentiment was stamped and then cut out using a nestabilities die. Rose were made using a cheap pack of paper petals from hobby Craft from the bridal section, I coloured them with Promarkers then spritz them with ImagePac pearl lustre mica pigments. The heart border was punched using a XCut border and corner punch.

Hope you like :)
Happy Crafting!
