A couple of quick makes ...

As promised a coupe of quick makes using the same stamp which is from Anita's called Scribbly Flower Stamp by Docrafts.  I didn't buy it here, I have had it for many years but this is a link I found for you.
Pretty basic, square white card base, Coredinations blue cardstock punched with MS punch around the page called Cherish.  Kraft card stamped with the flower using Versamark and a white embossing powder.  Some pearls from my stash and some baby blue ribbon.  The sentiment again stamped with the ink and heat embossed is from Whimsey Stamps.
This one is much the same with some hand stitching, green ribbon to represent the stork of the flower and some Crystal Stickles for a bit of bling.  The sentiment once again is from Whimsey Stamps.
That's it for me today, I have a few cards in the pipeline so I hope you will join me again very soon.
Take care, Jane x

A good friend ...

Today a simple yet effective card and along the same lines as before, the digi  from a Precious Moments colouring sheet,covering most of the card.  Today I have coloured the image with a combination Prismas and Promarkers, some gorgeous liitle brads for the cufflinks and the sentiment was a freebie online somewhere, cannot find the link at the mo.  Alittle bit of ribbon, Coredinations cardstock and finally alittle TH distress ink dusting!
Oh yes some hand stitching, goes without saying and some glossy accents for his eye and a white pen for the spots on the tie which I have also decoupaged!
Welcome to my new followers, I am very glad you have joined me on my card making journey
I have a couple of quick makes coming next so watch this space
Have a good day, Jane x

Nostalgia ...

I had been waiting for the replacement 'Mini' stamp in the Papermania Nostalgia Classic Cars so I could make this card for my dear Hubby's birthday.  Only got the stamps really for this one and as many of you will know there was a manufacture problem with the Mini so this is it, finally!
I was inspired by Nics (coops) UTEE technique by freezing the heat embossed powder and then quite simply breaking, great fun and fab technique Nic, thank you.  I found a thick piece of ribbon which I have recycled from somewhere!  I thought it looked like a seatbelt?
I am entering this card in the 'Here come the boys' challenge which this time round is 'Travel'
Thank you for popping back to my blog and any comments you leave
Take care, happy crafting

Teddy Bo & Bea ...

What a cute couple, don't you think and as you can see I have used the 'dot' technique again
 which I am loving.  
A simple card with the digi taking up most of the front with a computer generated sentiment, some distress ink dusting (tumbled glass) and a couple of buttons from my stash, not forgetting some stitching!
Thanks for popping by, happy crafting Jane x

Teddy Bea in the Spotlight ...

This is my entry for the new challenge over at Teddy Bo; hence the title!
Still playing with the bears and making it large with the image again pretty much filling the whole card.
Loving this image since its release a couple of weeks ago; this Teddy Bea is called "Beach Bea" and I have initially coloured her in with Prismacolor and then dotted over the top with Promarkers to give this effect, rather effective me thinks?  
I confess this technique came about more by accident as I wasn't happy with the colouring being such a large image and all, so I had a go with the Promarkers and hey presto!  I made a mask for Teddy Bea and dusted Tim Holtz 'Tumbled Glass' distress ink around her for the background and then again dotted with the Promakers to finish. A little bit of stitching (for a change) and some glossy accents for her nose and the puddle beneath her.
Thanks for popping, lots of new Teddy Bo images for sale today so please pop over for your weekly fix.  I received some images for my feature last week (very gratefully received Gayle, thank you) so I am off to have a play.
Thanks to all my followers regular and new, take care, happy crafting
