Creative Moments Challenge – Anything goes

Well Hello from Bristol this Mothering Sunday.  I have just watched Songs of Praise which was a blessing.   I have been treated today but still miss my own mother , despite it being nearly 19 years since she went home.  I feel for those who can’t be with their loved ones today, due to risk of viral infection, especially my own sister who is home alone with her low immunity :-(.

But to look on the bright side…  In between distance teaching and marking my classes work, I think I will get in more crafting than usual over coming weeks and some time in the garden.

My DT card for Creative Moments this week is made using a digistamp called Flower Doodles from

I coloured the image using Promarkers using really subtle colours.  It was then mounted on a 7 x 7 ” patterned card.  I have decided which friend will get this card.

Creative Moments Challenge – For the Girls!

Greetings!  My blog posts seem to be few and far between these days – I can only put this down to the pressures of work and family.  I have three teenagers at home and I am a teacher.  This week has been 1/2 term.  so that has been lovely and I have managed to get some crafting in.  This does mean that I will be spending the weekend working though…

But to more enjoyable matters.  My DT card for Creative Moments is made using a digistamp called Stardust 3 , from:

I coloured the image using Promarkers and then dug out some very old stash to mount it.  The papers are from Hot Off The Press – one of my favourite paper brands.  I had a small amount of this paper left and cut around the flowers and butterflies to make it look as though the little figure is pepping out from behind the flowers in the garden.  I finished off with a sentiment topper from Hunkydory and some iridescent glitter.

Creative Moments Challenge

The new challenge at Creative Moments has started – there is an option to make a spooky creation but I am well into Christmas card making now so a Christmas card it is!

My card uses a digi stamp set from M Medal Creations.  The stamp set includes several stamps which are perfect for Christmas cards and can be used in any combination.

I took the image into an editing program and used the small digis to make confetti for my shaker card.  The elves and sentiment were enlarged and coloured and cut out to be mounted upon the shaker section frame.  The backing papers are from Hot Off The Press.

I have used Winter Marcie by La-La Land stamps and papers from Hot Off The Press for today’s card.  I coloured her with Promarkers using a limited palette of reds and browns.

Promarker Colouring Tutorial – Auburn hair

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:7

I am sharing something a little different today as I thought I’d do a colouring tutorial.

This is a cropped image kindly provided by Mo Manning and the full version is available here.  The papers I have used are from HOTP ‘s Chocolate Dipped range.

This is the card I eventually made with the image.

I started her hair with Honeycomb, using it to surround all the highlights. I decided where the highlights would be by looking at the curls and deciding which part of each curl would be at the front and which behind.

Image

I then layered Ginger on top, moving away from the highlight areas which are left white.

Image

The next colour to be added was Terracotta.

Image

Then Rosewood.

Image

Finally I used the broad tip to colour the whole area with Mustard.  This blends the colours and makes her highlights golden instead of white.

Image

Colours used were:

Hair: Honeycomb, Ginger, Terracotta, Rosewood, Mustard.

Skin: Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Coral, soft pink

Tee: Lime Gree, Pear Green

Chocolate dipped…

Hello, I have made a few cards today from Hot off the Press’s kit called Chocolate Dipped.  I love this kit and have made several cards already.  I though this one could be used for a wedding, engagement or anniversary.

The word LOVE was cut using a Sizzix die.  All pieces are inked around the edges usin black Memento.

Guess what my son got for his birthday…

He got a bass guitar and this little rock dude from Kenny K is perfect for him.  The papers used to make up this card are from the aptly name Rock On range from Hot Off The Press and the letters are from Kanban.
