Bouquet


The September challenge at Penny Black and More is in full swing and you have plenty of time left to make a card which must include a sentiment.
Pop over to the blog for our list of generous sponsors, Penny Black, Marianne design, Sizzix and Sam. Please also take a moment to read the rules.

A walk round the garden inspired me to make this pretty card. There were a few late summer butterflies and flowers around and I remembered I had a pad which had a butterfly design. The woodwash paper was also in the same pad (bought from the Range recently) I used  PB image 40063(Merci bouquet) and sentiment (Gratitude) 30-105. I matted the layers with blue card from my stash and the image was coloured with colour coordinating Promarkers. I used 3 butterflies cut from the same backing paper and finished it off with 3 pearls.                                                                                           

In the garden


A new month and time for the Penny Black and More September challenge which is add a sentiment. Don't forget you will still need a focal point stamped image too. There are several prizes to be won and the sponsors are Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons, Sizzix, Sam and Marianne. Pop over to the blog for all the info and take a peek at the beautiful cards the design team have made for your inspiration.

I picked up a cheap pad of papers while shopping in the Range and this gorgeous blue paper was inside.  I added a quick mat of black card underneath and added my gorgeous PB image called Garden helper. I only added a very small ammount of blue shading on my image to keep it simple. Without making it over fussy I added a swirly die cut with a few black pearls added. I finished it off with a birthday sentiment mounted on black card and a strip of lace with added white pearls. I am really happy with this card and it will be added to my "to sell" box.

Girl talk


A little mid month inspiration for the Penny Black and More August challenge. The theme is anything goes and use a main stamped image. Pop over to the blog to see more inspirational cards from the design team, rules and list of prizes.

I used a stamp called tete-e-tete which I picked up on ebay for a couple of pounds. A real bargain and it is such a great image to use for a teenage girl card.
I found the lovely pink and grey paper in my stash and decided to stick with those two main colours. I partly coloured my image with Promarkers and added a double bow to finish it off.

Wash day


The monthly challenge at Penny Black and More for August is Anything goes but also using a focal point stamped image.
I made a fun card using an old stamp called Uplifting Occasion. This stamped image always brings a smile to my face and I enjoyed doing minimal water colouring to co-ordinate with the background paper I used. A double flower, ribbon snippet and pearls was all it needed to finish it off.

PB Blue flowers


The weather has been pretty wet for June and as we are into the start of July lets keep our fingers crossed we will get sunshine and warmth.

I have chosen blue for my DT card for the Penny Black and More  "Anything goes with a stamp" challenge this month. I have used a beautiful PB cling stamp called "Fresh".
The challenge is nice and easy and you don't need to use a PB stamp to enter. Just make sure you have a main stamped image and no digis on your work. There are some great prizes to be won from sponsors: Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons
and Sizzix. Pop over to the blog using the link above for all the details.

I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

PB Floral


I made a quick DT card for mid month inspiration at Penny Black and More for the "Flower Power" challenge. If you have not tentered the challenge yet you still have plenty of time to do so. Pop over using the link above to check out all the rules, prizes and other inspiration projects by Brenda and the DT.

The PB image I used is called "Playful" and it is a perfect size to use on a "5x5" card. I water coloured the image and added a black border to give it a definate edge. The bow and swirled twine added to the corner helps to bring your eye to the image. A few colour matched pearls finished it off to my liking.

Pink Poppies


The start of a new month and that means another challenge at Penny Black and  More with the theme of Flower Power. A nice and easy challenge with some  lovely prizes up for grabs as usual. Pop over to the blog for all the details and rules of the challenge. The challenge runs for a whole month so you will have       plenty of time to make your project. If you need a little inspiration the design team have made a selection of fabulous cards for you to peruse.
I decided to use one of my new rubber stamps called Fresh. I love this stamp and watercoloured the image so I could work on the shadows. I can never achieve this look with any marker I have tried. A simple card that shows the beauty of the flowers I think.

Perfect Poppies


I used Poppy Trio by PB for my central image on this card as it is beautiful and very versatile. I think water colouring it gave it a lovely soft look which I struggle to do when using Promarkers. I inked the doily die cut edges and added foam pads to give it a bit of a lift from the background paper. I love the simplicity and the focus is on the lovely poppies. A sentiment and some thin ribbon finished it off and it turned out just as I wanted it.
Now over to the Penny Black and More challenge this month which is  Anything goes. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs from sponsors Penny Black, Crafts U Love and Crafty Ribbons. There is also a chance to be a guest designer. Pop over to the blog for all the details and remember to read the simple rules carefully before entering the challenge. NO Digis allowed.

White Poppies

My goodness the months are rolling by so quickly. It seems to me we have just got past Christmas and we are fast approaching Summer.
This is my mid month inspiration card for the Penny Black and More " Birthday" challenge for the month of April. This is a nice easy challenge with lots of lovely prizes up for grabs. Pop over to the blog to see the inspiration cards from the lovely DT girls. Please check the rules carefully before you enter.
My card turned out completely different to what I was intending to make. I was very late in getting it made (again) so I quickly stamped my image called Poppy Trio. Even with minimal colouring I think it is beautiful. I added foam pads to the back, added ribbon and fixed it to my card. I die cut  two Butterflies, glued them together and added a few gems to the body before adding it to the card. More  gems were added to the centre of the Poppies and a sentiment was added to finish it off.
