Creative Moments Challenge – Anything goes

Not often I make a card for boys with bling!  But on this fabulous Digi from Sheepski it goes well.  Do take a look at the other DT cards over at Creative Moments and enter the new challenge starting today.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and used tiny adhesive jewels for the buttons on the gaming handsets, in order to give the card a little dimension.  The backing paper is from a 6 inch pad from Paper Cellar.

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

For this week’s challenge I have used part of a digistamp.  This is such a vertitle stamp from Sheepski, called Breezy Beach Walk.  It can be used whole for a card for a girl or lady, or cropped to a seascape to make a gorgeous card for anyone.  I printed onto watercolour paper and coloured with Aquamarkers.

Mono teen

So to make a decorative card for a teen who loves black…

For my daughter’s 14th birthday card I used a digistamp from Polkadoodles.  I have used papers and embellishments from DoCrafts in black, white and silver.

Creative Moments – Just for fun challenge

I am so deigghted with tnhis new paper from Stampin’Up!  combined with a hand-coloured image from Mo’s Digital Pencil – it is perfect for my sister’s birthday today.  She loves to wear orange and I love to wear red – though we carry a few more years than in Mo’s gorgeous digi image.  And our mother loved toadstools.  Summer might just have officially started but I love these autumnal colours together. I have used Promarkers to colour the girls.

The sentiment comes with the image too.  DO take a look at Creative Moments for more beautiful projects and to enter our challenge.

Cake and running

So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running!  I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory.  I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments.  And di dthe inside too.  (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing),  I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.

Creative Moments has  lots more fun cards at there Just fro Fun challenge this week!

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted. My Laptop has died so I have decided to post here today using my ‘phone.

I made this card yesterday using DoCrafts products apart from the card base which is from Dovecraft.

Anyway, it has been quite hard work so I might not post again until my laptop is fixed. I will be back though!
