Promarker week 14 purple and Just Magnolia week 19

August 26, 2009

I made loads of cards yesterday and 3 of them qualify for the Promarker challenge. I’m not sure if you can submit more than one entry, but i’ll give it a go.
The first card is Tilda sitting. I have used lilac , lavender, 2 shades of grey, cornflower and blush. The cicles are embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The papers are DCWV This is being entered into the Just Magnolia challenge.

The second card is princess Anya from the Greetings Farm. She is matted onto a scalloped square cut from Nestables. Again I have used lilac and lavender with blossom pink for the underskirt. Two shades of grey are used for her hair.

The third card is a stamped image I purchased from a friend. I can’t remember the make of stamp. The backing paper is Basic Grey. I think the thankyou stamp is Penny Black.
Please let me know what you think of them

Passion for Promarkers week 8

July 15, 2009

Hi everyone
Had a busy weekend in Stoke so didn’t get the chance to post anything.
Only 2 days left at school before we break up. Yipeeeeee!!!!!
I made some of those little handbags for some of the girls at school who I have been dieting with. some of them have done really well. Me hmmmmm, not so good. Never mind. I put 4 little chocolates in the bags as a treat for them . I will post the pictures in a bit.
I also made another exploding box for a girl at school who’s friend is getting married. The colour scheme was chocolate and cream. I think it turned out okay. Let me know what you think.
This is my card for the Passion for Promarkers week 8 challenge.
The image is from Sugar Nellie and I have coloured it with this week’s colours;
I also used;
hair: apricot,spice,terracotta
shoes: apricot,spice,terracotta
dog: cool grey 1, warm grey 3
outline: cool grey 1
I then chalked around the image. The papers are from Basic Grey. The flower is a Sizzix die with a pearlised brad in the middle ( the twist of jewels and gems). The card is finished off with red ric-rac.
Please let me know what you think of it
love Sarah XXX

Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch

June 29, 2009

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. Today has been gloriously hot but as I start to type my blog the rain has started and so has the thunder.
Well I’m still shocked about the news about Michael Jackson. What will happen to his children? And Farrah Fawcett Majors too. I remember watching Charlies Angels in the 70’s. Everyone wanted her hairstyle. It didn’t look right unless you were blonde. Sad times.
Well Daniel has done 3 days of his new job. All is going well.
Are any of you going to the Newbury Craft show on Saturday 4th July? If you are come and say Hello to me at The Hotshots stand where I will be demonstrating Promarkers used with the air system and Wild Rose Studio Stamps. Hotshots are sponsers for the Passion for Promarkers challenge
Well here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch. As it is nearly the end of term I used Best Teacher as my sentiment and Tilda as a schoolgirl standing in front of a desk.
Please leave a comment about it as I am feeling lonely!!!

Just Magnolia challenge week 10 Summer

June 25, 2009

Lovely weather again. Hope you are all having a lovely day
Daniel starts his job this afternoon so I am going to give him a good lunch and then drop him off at work. At work how weird does that sound. It only seems like yesterday he was my beautiful baby boy!!!!
Well back to all things crafty. Here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge.The theme is summer and I have used Tilda in a swimsuit. I followed the out of bounds Nestie tutorial by Rach (Papercrafts by Rach). It really is an effective way of combining stamps and nesties.
The papers I bought were on sale and are by Basic Grey. The flowers are Papermania and American Crafts.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

May 27, 2009

Hope you have all had a good Bank Holiday. We were up at 4.00 a.m. this morning to take our daughter Emma to B/ham airport as she goes off on holiday with some friends and their children. Bet they have better weather than us!!!
Well this new challenge blog looks really good. As you know I tried out for the DT but never got in, although they have said I can be a future Guest designer. Can’t wait for that.
As they have said you can enter as many times as you like I will submit the following cards ( I have so many coloured in with Promarkers!!!! dozens of them…)
Hope you like them.

Whiff of Joy challenge #31

May 21, 2009

another dreary wet day in Wolverhampton.
Thank you for the lovely comments and whilst other bloggers are celebrating their blogaversaries or hitting so many thousand hits, I hope to soon celebrate 100 hits!!!!. That’s really exciting for me.
This card is my entry for the Whiff of Joy Challenge. I have just had 3 of their stamps and wish I had known about the possibility of pre-ordering the Summer collection. I would definitely had ordered them. Oh well maybe next time.
On this card I have used Basic Grey and flowers from Poppicrafts. What a great shop!
I have used the stamp masking technique that I have recently been teaching in card lessons. The brick wall behind Willow is a Magnolia stamp and of course I have used Promarkers.
Unfortunatelty I never made it onto the Passion for Promarkers design team but they have asked me to be a guest designer in the future which I am looking forward to.
Speak to you soon

Friday Sketchers challenge

May 11, 2009

Hi, second card of the day. I think I’ve gone challenge mad!!!
I really enjoyed making this card with all its layers. I already had this image coloured in and liked the orange flower on . So I was pleased when I recently had these Petaloo flowers which also had orange in them. I think they stand out quite nicely against the green of the Basic Grey papers.
I have cut the flourishes out of green vellum which are stuck on very loosely so they flutter as you walk by.
See you soon
Love Sarah XXX
True Love
