Sugar Bowl #65

Another challenge from the Sugar Bowl challenge blog. A sketch to follow and the colour blue to be used.MTSB65 - BLUE

Having 3 Grandaughters and only 1 Grandson most of my crafting tends to be pink or purple but I found a piece of blue backing paper in my Henbury Lane stack to use. I teamed it with pink roses from the same pad, a Martha Stewart punch and some white ribbon. The bow is hung with a silver jump ring. The image is Daisy from Sugar Nellies, she has been coloured with Promarkers.SAM_0670SAM_0671

I’m also entering this for the Sugar Nellie fb challenge which is to use punches/die cuts. It also fits in as:

a girly card on the Stampavie challenge this week.

Say it with flowers on the Pixie Cottage.

More beads and a card.

It’s my Mum’s birthday later this month, her card is all ready for her along with a bit of beading, in the form of a matching bracelet and necklace set.SAM_0606

I’ve used large seed beads in a matt finish and the cascade method of attaching them with silver plated jump rings. I’ve only used a small section for the necklace as it can get quite heavy, and attached decorative chain to it at either side.

I’ve used this lovely Daisy stamped image coloured with Promarkers for the card. The papers are Henbury Lane, the dots on the middle piece are actually glossy but it doesn’t show up very well.SAM_0560The punch is by Martha Stewart and the swirl is a die-cut but i’ve no idea where from. The circles and ovals are Nesties. It's a large card made by scored an A4 sheet into a square shape and attaching another sheet cut down to size for the back. SAM_0558

Paper and beads

I made these for my friend Lynn whose birthday it was last week.SAM_0563The image is a beautiful digi from Funky Kits. Coloured with Promarkers, it is simply layered with the addition of a die-cut corner and some pearlescent card. A few pieces of silver card candy finish it off.

SAM_0565The memory wire bracelet uses seed beads in a beautiful aubergine colour, larger beads in amethyst and 2 different shades of pink glass beads. I honestly try to do random with my spacing but this is as good as it gets – between 19 & 22 seed beads between each cluster of 3 larger ones. lol.


The bookmark uses lots of different elements found in my stash along with a little ‘made with love’ heart charm. Sorry about the rather bright blue background.

Sugar Bowl #64 take 2

This time a square card using the same image and layout but in a different colour scheme.SAM_0667

I must admit i’ve cheated a little bit by using a lace edge punch from Martha Stewart rather than actual lace.

Sugar Bowl #64

A card at last!

This is for the challenge on the Sugar Bowl blog.

This is the sketch provided for the challenge, the other thing was to include lace, which I managed.

Here is what I came up with.SAM_0665SAM_0666I’ve used A4 cardstock folded to make an nice large A5 card. The image is a digi coloured with Promarkers. her hair looks a little bit pink in the light I had for the photo this morning but in reality is a soft shade of brown. HOTP papers and a Tim Holtz flourish form the backing and I wired a few flower and seed beads to sit on top of the lace and a tiny gem for a bit of sparkle.

I’m also including this for the Sugar Nellies fb challenge to use orange and yellow.
