Secret Crafter Challenge

This is my entry for the Secret Crafter Challenge, make a calender. I have used a Little Claire stamp and some Daisy Bucket papers. The easel card makes a great calender and after seeing the lovely examples from the design team, I had to make one!

I did not have any flowers to match these papers so I used a craft knife to cut round the petals of the flowers printed on the papers so I could 3D them a little.

I had the little calenders in a recent Docrafts Goody bag, brilliant value at 99p for a pack of 10, so will definitely be making some more of these as little gifts for friends.

Sorry about the photo quality, it has been raining all day today, very difficult to get any good light.

Graduation Card

This card was made as a commission for a friend at works daughter. She is having her graduation ceremony next week. The colours are black and magenta (looks a bit red in the picture). I used a stamp by Penny Black - Graduates for the image. I also made a matching box.

Promarker Challenge Card

I was supposed to do my housework today but this little beauty arrived in the post over the week-end and I was itching to make something! So instead of ironing and cleaning I have been playing truant! I wanted to really traditional card so chose Old Olive and Real red cardstock from Stampin Up as my starting point. I used my new Nellie Snellern die to. I have entered this card in the Promarker challenge using the sketch provided.

Easel Card

This is my entry in the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge for an Easel style card, here is the link
I chose to use my new Pink Gem Stamp, isn't she sweet! I coloured her in with Promarkers, and used my Stampin Up word window punch to make cute accents. I have had the Cuttlebug Ice Crystal die for a while, don't know why I waited to so long to use it.
I added some polar white flower soft to the furry bits on her outfit. Last but not least a snowflake charm as inspired by Bev Rochester's wonderful creations.

I have posted some blog candy as well today. I will make the draw on 30/11/09, please leave me a comment to enter and if you can mention the blog candy on your blog.
