Welcome Baby Skyla




Evening all,

Quick share for you tonight, this card is for Megan (girl at work) she left at half term to start her maternity leave and  one week over due she went into hospital at 09:30 am and her Daughter was born at 10:12 this morning. So welcome to the world,  little baby Skyla :) and congratulations and well done Megan :).


So I decided to go with an easel card and used this super cute "Lili Of The Valley Stamp", coloured with my promarkers: Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink, Blossom, Carnation Pink, Baby Pink, Rose Pink, Cool Grey 1,2 and 3 and highlighted it with my white gel pen and clear stardust pen.



The design papers are very old and were found in my stash, not sure of the make, the pink card is by "paper Mill". The gorgeous pink ribbon and silver charm came from "The Ribbon Girl" and the elephant was in my stash.

I used my cuttle bug heart folder to create the embossed panel and an "MSE" sentiment stamp on the bottom panel. I have edged all layers of card and paper with my clear stardust pen so it subtly catches the light.

Thanks for looking :)

Noel



Evening all,
A quick share for you today, project Christmas is almost complete, just working on cards for work colleagues and close family now. This card has been made using scraps of various 12x12 papers and I've also paper pieced the gorgeous image. I have followed an old "Sketch Saturday" layout for the overall design of the card.


This super cute stamp is from "Lili Of The Valley" and it has been coloured with my promarkers: Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink, Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Apple, Meadow Green, Midnight Blue, Rose Pink, Baby Pink, Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber, Cool Grey 1,2 and 3. It has been paper pieced and highlighted with my white gel pen and gold stardust pen.



I used my Marianne Creatable dies to make the snowflakes, the buttons and gems are from my stash and the Bakers Divine Twine is from "The Ribbon Girl". I have decorated the inside of the card to match the front and added an "Lili Of The Valley Sentiment".

Thanks for stopping by.

Krafty Christmas....Geddit :)


Afternoon all, well half past week already and 5 week today we'll be finished work for Christmas :), my presents have been bought since January and are now all wrapped up and waiting for Santa's elves to come and collect them for the big day!

So speaking of Christmas, I thought I would share this card with you. The image is super cute from "Lili Of The Valley" and was coloured with my promarkers: Forest Green, Holly, Apple Green, Leaf Green, Tan, Caramel, Cinnamon, Raw Sienna, Umber, Shale, Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink , Yellow, Sunflower, Berry Red, Midnight Blue and Cool Grey 1-5. The image has also been highlighted with my white gel pen, white flock powder and iridescent glitter. The snowflakes were drawn on by hand, I was inspired to try this by Coops, as she is very good at doing this sort of background and it really brings her stamped images to life, go check out her blog :).

The Gingham paper is by "Craft Creations" and the card from "Paper Mill Shop", I used my "Marianne Dies" to create the snowflakes. I coloured the snowflakes with my clear stardust pen and I was going to give them a coating of crackle glaze so they appear icy, but at the moment I cant find it.  The ribbon is from "The Ribbon Girl" and the buttons from my stash.


The sentiment used on the front of the card is from "Penny Black" and I have used my "Music notes" embossing folder to create the embossed panel. The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front and the sentiment is by "lili Of The Valley".

Thanks for visiting my little place in the web.
