It's a Crafters Companion Challenge # 5

Firstly i would just like to Congratulate Ildiko for winning the lovely prize that Rachel has kindly donated for challenge #4 well done Ildiko.

Secondly i cant believe that we are on our 5Th challenge already at "It's a Crafters Companion Challenge Blog". The sketch for this fortnight was designed by little old me and i wanted the colour Blue to be added to the sketch. For my sample i have used the Men's Collection for the backing papers and the rubber stamp i have used for my image also belongs to the Men's Collection. The sentiment is from Crafters Companion which i believe came out for the Occasions Cd. The image and sentiment have been stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed with Blue embossing powder, gems from stash.

As always if you would like to join us in this challenge all you have to do is make sure you have something visible from the Crafters Companion range on you card. Why don't you check out the lovely samples from the other Dt members and submit your card while you're there. We will have a prize of some kind but up to now we're not sure if it will be a prize from Crafters Companion or a mystery prize again which would be kindly donated by Wendy. Keep checking It's a Crafters Companion blog for the update.

Christmas Cards

Here are to days cards, simple but nice and quick to make which is just what i need at the minute.

Base white card is from my stash and everything else came in the last Docrafts goody bag, i have loads of these bags i buy each one as it comes out but never get around to using the lovely things inside of them, so i thought i better use some of the things up to show my Hubby that i do need these things and i don't always store things away in my craft cupboard and forget that i have them..... i think all crafters are guilty of doing this or is it just me? Lol

I used my Cuttlebug to cut around the tree with the oval nestie.

Wedding Aniversary

I haven't posted much lately as i have been so busy with other things but i needed to make a card for my Brother and his Wife as it's their Wedding Anniversary on Monday and this is the card i came up with. I used the swirls folder for my cuttlebug and the hearts two step die also for the cuttlebug. Sentiment was computer generated and cut out with circle nesties.

It's a Crafters Companion Challenge # 4

Firstly i would like to congratulate Louise for winning the lovely Popcorn Bear stamp that Sara kindly donated for the 3rd It's a Crafters Companion Challenge well done Louise.

Now for our next challenge.

Christine has designed the sketch for our 4Th challenge and we had to use ribbons and brads on our cards, thank you Christine i have loved using this sketch and i will use it again. The Cd i have used for this card is from Crafters Companion "Oriental" the papers and Chinese Proverbs are from Cd 2 and i thought i would use purple as that's Crafters Companion colours. I also used the coordinating stamps, the butterflies have been stamped onto lilac vellum with Versamark ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder i then coloured them with my Sakura glitter pens.

I took part of the sketch and the bits of papers i had left over and put them inside of the card to match.
click Here: To see the lovely cards the other Dt members have made and while your there why dont you have a go at the challenge, the only stipulation is that you use something from the Crafters Companion range on your card so its visible and follow the sketch.

Popcorn the Bear Christmas Collection

Here are some of my samples that i made for Sara for the launch of Popcorn the Bear Christmas Collection last night, not all of them got shown as there were so many gorgeous samples. I didn't get a chance to put them on last night as i have been having mega problems with my computer but its sorted now as the nice insurance people have replaced it with a lovely new one because they couldn't fix it and my Hubby set it up for me last night while i watched the fab shows on Create and Craft and Steph mentioned my name how good was that!. I just hope i get the hang of the new computer as its Vista.

This is my take on the second challenge for "It's a Crafters Companion Challenge Blog". I have used the car stamp from the Boys stamp set that goes with the Boys 'N' Girls Cd's. The papers are from the Occasion CD (Autumn and Winter). I used the L plates from the Cute Companions Summer Stories Outdoor stamp set and stamped them 6 times then cut them in half before sticking them in opposite corners of the card. Pop on over and have a look at the other DT members cards everyone of them are lovely and why don't you have a go at the challenge while your there. You can buy the Cd's and stamps from Crafters Companion.

1ST Christmas Card For 2009

Well i thought i would make a start on some Christmas cards so this is my card for today. I love the shape of this card and its so easy to make, when its folded up it fits into a C6 envelope. I stamped the snowmen onto white card and coloured them with copic marker pens then i used my cuttlebug to cut the circle around them with circle nesties. The snow flakes have been cut with a x-cut die from light blue card. Papers are from stash. The greeting is one from Cute Companions Wonderful Christmas stamp set available from Crafters Companion.

At Last

Not been blogging much just lately as i have been looking after my mam and Dad, my Mam has been in and out of hospital the last couple of weeks so i have been coming and going and not been able to do much with my blog. But at last i have managed to make a card. I own one Promarker and i used it on this card, i must say i don't like them as much as Copic Markers. The image is from Cuddly Buddly and the sentiment is a stamp that came free with the Docrafts magazine i stamped it onto pink shrink plastic the papers are from Papermania. I used the large oval Nestabilities and ran them through my Cuttlebug.
