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.

Golden Anniversary card

June 23, 2009

As promised here are some photos of the Boxed card I made for my parents 50th Anniversary.My mum is a card maker too so I wanted to make them a really special one. The box was a covered one I bought from Hobbycraft. It was reduced to 99p!!!
The papers I think are DCWV. The front stamped image is Hanglar and Stanglar and the stamped sentiments are Tim Holtz and Anna Griffin. The poems were free of the internet by Joanna Fuchs. There are several to choose from, so I just picked the most appropriate.
Please let me know what you think of it.

Whiff of Joy challenge #34

June 15, 2009

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. We had a girlie night last night. Hair and makeup, games and food and drink!!!
The ages ranged between 16 and late 50’s. We had such fun. The next time we do this the girls who did the makeup will be the ones to get made up. Then we had a bit of 70’s disco to finish off the evening.
Well here is my card for the Whiff of Joy challenge.
I decided on bright oranges and I used the colour theme of pumpkin and cinnamon from this weeks Promarker challenge
I quite like this one, hope you do too.
Love Sarah XXX
p.s. It’s my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary next week so I need to get on with a special card for them. I’ll show it to you as soon as I have done it.

Promarker challenge #3

June 12, 2009

Hi everyone
Seems ages since I last left a post.
I must have been very busy doing housework or something (lol).
I eventually made a card for the Promarker challenge #2 but by the time I could get on the computer to post it the time was up.
This is my entry for challenge #3.
I have used the colours of the week:

The papers are from my stash and the flower is made from my Whale of a punch retro flower and the xcut flower shape.
The larger flower is punched from a cheap dictionary I bought which I keep specifically for punching flowers.The flower center is a candy dot. I have used a Magnolia stamp ( the other colours used are – ivory, satin, cool grey 2, vanilla). I have used my Nesties and the sizzix large heart die.
Hope you like this.
Love Sarah XXX

Passion for Promarkers challenge #1

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.

Sugar Bowl challenge no.11

May 21, 2009

Final card for the day. My craft equipment is always ready and waiting for me in the kitchen. So in
between cooking and doing other housework I can make cards. Makes housework more bearable!!
There’s an interesting sketch on the sugar Bowl challenge and there is an addition of pearls. The DT cards are all lovely. This is my take on the sketch.

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
