Creative Moments challenge – Anything goes

I have 3 cards to share today, all for the Creative Moments challenge and all using digis designed by Kristyn McInnes -Buckingham, from her Oz new release at My Stitch Back In Twine.

The first card uses and was was coloured red using a Ruby Promarker before have glitter glued on.  The backing paper is vintage Kanban, but it reminded me of the wicked witch’s guards.


Next, I have used Papermania capsule papers and embellishments in Wild Rose and used Promarkers to colour The balloon.  Silver accents were used and i added a pink cross and congratulations sentiment so the card could be used for a church wedding or baptism.


Last but not least, Poppies!  Simply coloured using Promarkers again, this image was cut out and mounted onto black which enhanced  the littered black centre of the flower.

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!

For my sister

I have made this card using Serif craft artist and a digikit called Owl Forest.  A few elements were printed separately in order to create some dimension.  This is my favourite saying.

Creative Moments challenge – summer

A new challenge has begun at Creative Moments and this fortnight’s theme is summer.  I made my background using elements from Polkadoodles BonBon Belles CD.  The digi image was then fussy cut , leaving a narrow white border and mounted using foam pads on top of a swirl embellishment.

You’re the best

I have used DoCrafts products to make this card for my hubby.  It was actually for his birthday but would be perfect for Father’s day too.

Au revoir

I rarely make an A4 card but this has been made for a lady at work who is leaving to join the international school in Brussels.  She loves Cornwall so I chose this Cornish-style fishing village but added the “au revoir” to acknowledge her move to Belgium.  The central plaque is decoupaged onto the card and the shells on top of that.  The verse is based on one I found online but changed it to better fit this circumstance.

The digikit I used for the artwork is by CraftScapes and is called Summer seaside.
