Cheerful StampPad challenge – a new baby

For my card for the Cheerful StampPad challenge, I have used 4 separate digistamps from Stitchy Bear for this CAS card. I used Promarkers in Pastel Blue, Cornflower and China Blue. I have mounted the topper onto Bazzill cardstock in matching blue.

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – Make it for a man

This is the time of year when children thank their teachers – but what about music teachers? I have made this card today for The Cheerful Stamp Pad, using a digistamp and backing papers from SentimentabaSusan  – available at the Stitchy bear outlet.  I have used stash from Kanabn’s McKenzie and Stampunk ranges to collate the card and the beautiful acetate overlay is from Hunkydory.

Hello, here is a quick reminder of the Creative Moments Challenge which started yesterday.  This is a lovely image is from Stitchy Bears and is ideal for friends suffering with alopecia or illness.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and made it into a card using papers called Parisian Dreams, which came free with a magazine earlier in the year.
