New Technique(s)

I seem to be on a cardmaking roll at the moment - I've made more cards this year (over 40) than I have in the last 4 years.

I've volunteered to do this month's challenge on Crafts by Carolyn and it's to make a project using a new technique

Here's mine, which actually includes 2 new techniques for me. The first is an Easel Card, from a tutorial I found here and a quilted patterned paper die cut, inspired from here

I have to say, next time I would stagger the 2nd line of squares to soften it a little, it looked perfect on Carole's card, but hers was more of a rectangular shape.

Hope you can join in with my challenge

Clearly Besotted Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes

Stephanie's challenge at Simply Besotted Stamps this month is 'Anything Goes'

I was lucky enough to be able to get the Text Me stamps and dies before they sold out and here's the first card I've made with them

Off to have a play with Blogger, it's ages since I last blogged and it looks like I need to update my background as well as a few more things

Blowing Out The Cobwebs

One of my New Year Resolutions was to craft & blog more, ok it's taken a month but I'm here!

Multitasking Challenges

This weeks colours on Passion For Promarkers are Pumpkin & Prussian, but there's an added theme of Halloween

I used the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday and the image is downloaded from Elizabeth Dulemba. I coloured some white primas with my prussian blue promarkers & the outer circle of the sentiment too

Blogging in the early hours

This weeks challenge on Passion For Promarkers is to use Cocoa & Rose Pink

I used cocoa for the hair & rose pink for the drink, chair & stool but I also used the pink to customise my paper as the flowers & circles were a very pale lilac so I coloured over them with my promarker (I've left 2 circles on the right hand side so you can see the difference - have coloured them in now I've taken the photo!

I've also used this weeks fab sketch over at Papertake Weekly
