Zombie 16!!

My son's best friend is 16 on Saturday & loves his Zombies. I made him a fab card last year & have struggled to find something that comes close. I then popped over to Stamps by Aurora Wings & found this amazing image!!!

She's called Zombie Kitty :-) I love colouring her in. I used the sketch over at Seems A Little Sketchy. I added some Crystal Lacquer to the blood on her bib. Here is a closeup of  her.

The papers are all Crate Paper. The base layer has been embossed with Skulls. I added these cute skeletons which were on an elastic bracelet that I strung on to Jute. Again I have kept the inside fairly simple so haven't worried about taking pics x Clare x

This card is being sent to my Uncle who has been poorly over the past week & was admitted to hospital at the weekend.

I have used the cheeky greeting by Redonkadoodles & coloured with my Promarkers. I used last week's sketch by SSW2 (yes I am running a bit late lol). The papers are WRMK Hall Pass.

I have taken the sketch through to the inside using the same papers. Tomorrow I will hopefully be back with a 16th birthday card for a family friend x Clare x

Spring is finally here

Finally the rains have stopped & the Spring weather has arrived :-) My 2014 shows have now begun & it is definitely going to be a busy year.  Today I have managed to get a Mother's Day card made for a Farmer's Market next week.

I have used the sketch from Sketch N Stash. They are always the first place I turn to when needing a sketch.  The image is a freebie I found on my computer & I have coloured with Promarkers. I edged with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

 The papers are all We R Memory Keepers. I added a daisy trim, flatback pearls & a ribbon.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly, stamped with Memento & layered with Spellbinders. I left the inside of the card pretty simple so didn't worry about photographing x Clare

A New Challenge

I was having a look around Blogland yesterday & came across a couple of Sketch Challenge blogs that I hadn't seen before so decided to create a card for this week's challenge on one. The blog was called Seems A Little Sketchy & this is the card I created for it.
 The stamp was by Kanban & I have coloured with Promarkers. I added some Peach Pearl Wand to the flower in her hand. The edge is distressed with Vintage Photo & layered onto Core'dinations & a DP from Crate Paper.
Here is a close up of the image. I have added a tag that I found in my peel off box used brown organza ribbon. The pearl flourish is by Bo Bunny & I have added Petaloo flowers with black gem centres.

I added a part image on the inside of the card with the same papers & again distressed around the edge. x

Bunny Loves

Another Valentines Card today. This one is really simple compared to the previous post. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches but I have missed the deadline :-( The image is an adorable set from The Clipart Fairy called Nesties Bunny I think. I just couldn't resist it the other day.

I added some black organza ribbon, a Love charm, black gems. The sentiment at the top was printed on to Safmat.

I took the papers through to the inside of the sketch. The papers are a mix of The ClipArt Fairy & Crate Paper. x Clare x

Cutie Pies

Well January is drawing to a close already & February has almost crept in. So what lies ahead for us - Hearts, Pancakes & probably a lot more rain :-( So here is the 1st of my Valentine's Cards.

The layout is from this fortnight's Sketch N Stash challenge & I have to say I love this sketch. I have coloured this image from The ClipArt Fairy with Promarkers & layered onto some lovely vellum I found stashed in a drawer. I edged with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The papers are Prima Botannical & Centura Pearl. I added 3 roses & the die flourish is from Pinflair. Here is a closer look at the image.

I have taken the sketch through the inside. Next time I think I will probably leave the lace & daisy braid trim off the inside as it has made the card quite bulky. I added lace down the spine of the card too. The hearts are from the Sizzix Lacy Heart Die x Clare x
