I've gone for the vintage look...i know that was last weeks theme,i had already coloured Tilda to join in on that challenge but never got round to making a card so decided to use her this week but felt the colours i'd used on Tilda meant i had to stick with the vintage theme.
I love the look of vintage,but never seem to get it right myself,that's why you never see it much i my blog.
I'm also entering this card into WILD ORCHID CRAFTS CHALLENGE...this week the theme is lace.
RECIPE FOR CARD :-
Stamp :-Tilda with hat...coloured with Promarkers,Prisma's and i've tried to age her alittle with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Papers :-Melissa Francess "Sandra" & "Wesley"
Sentiment :- Inkadinkado.
Flowere :- Wild Orchid Crafts.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Lace and Pearl head pins from stash.
Everything as been distressed and edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Well that's about it for now..i'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for Just Cute Bears...untill then have a lovely day,

I finished off by edging the base card with diamond stickles...i wasn't pleased with the colour when it had dried so i went over it with some lemon chalk...much better :0).

When i saw the theme today i knew i had to make a shaped card with it....i enlarged the image and printed it out twice on two different greens of DCWV textured cardstock.
I scored and folded a third piece of card the same as the paler green,stuck the printed image to it,leaving some over hang at the top and cut round it...I then cut parts of the image from the darker green and stuck it to the base image....paper piecing really but with cardstock.
I added alittle colour to his cheek with some chalk.
Beaded wire,charm,bow,pearl and wobbly eye from stash.
To give you an idea of size it fits nicely into a 6" square envelope....i didn't want to add anything else to the image so i've made a tiny card out of the scraps of the same card,the sentiment is Hero Arts...flower from stash.
Just a fun thing but i like it!
That's it for now....oh i forgot to mention Paula is letting you pick another freebie from her shop if you enter this second part :0)...can't be bad!

To be totally honest i've never been really 100% sure whether i trully like Tilda!..i love her on everyone else's cards just not mine...but i think my hubby's got alot to do with this...he doesn't like her full stop!and i think he's put me off alittle :0(...so why you ask do i still keep buying the stamps?,can't answer that one!...you tell me!...lol.

This week at JUST CUTE BEARS the theme is "Christmas In July"....so dig out those Christmas stamps and come and join in!...that will be one less to worry about two weeks before Christmas...lol.
For my card i went with a Forever Friends stamp that's exclusive to the Glitter Pot "Christmas Gift"...coloured using Promarkers and Prisma's...the sentiment is also part of a FF stamp i just inked the sentiment part up.
The base is made up of two different size shaped cards cut using my Cricut and the "Wild Card"...the white bottom layer is 5 3/4" and the black layer is 5 1/4".
The other layers have been done with the scallop circles nesties.
I've threaded some gingham ribbon througth the holes which i love to do with these type of cards.
Finished off with some glamour dust to the ribbon and bow on the image and some diamond stickles around is feet.
Well that's all for now....just would like to say a big thank you to all who joined us last week for Helen's sketch we had some gorgeous creations hope to see you all again this week...and remember there's just one rule you must use a cute bear :0)...now that's not difficult is it!
Have a lovely Sunday,

I've kept my card simple,i've used the freebie that's still available HERE....i've only coloured the hearts with a red Copic marker and then added alittle glamour dust to them.I've cut it out using a oval nestie and then layered onto a heart nestie.
The embossed layer i've done using the Crafts-Too "Dots" embossing folder,love this it's 5 x5 and the dots are slightly larger than the Cuttlebug swiss dots one.
The sentiment is a 7 Gypsies stamp..cut out using a file tab punch by Woodware.
All layers have been distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Finished off with ribbon from stash.
Well that's about it for now...have a great day everyone.

I've got a card to share with you i've made to cover two challenges....POLLYCRAFT ,this week there's a fabby sketch to follow made by one of the DT Marit....thank you Marit i really enjoyed working with this one :0)
The second challenge i'll be entering is TEDDY STAMPERS....this week the theme is "love my teddy".....and i can say that Evie loves hers!
The image i've used is a digital image from Pollycraft "Evie waiting for Santa"...gorgeous Christmas image and a dream to colour.I've used Promarkers and Prisma's as my colouring medium.
The papers are from a DCWV "Christmas Stack"...this is everlasting,i don't think i will ever come to the end of it...i do love the papers...so perhaps it's a good thing :0).
The baubles are out of one of those assorted button packs...not sure of the make i've emptied them all out into a tub...they're hanging from gold craft wire,they don't move because i've secured them with Pinflair glue gel.
The sentiment is a peel-off i've coloured with a black permanent marker...i'm happy with it,it looks like it's been heat embossed.
Ribbon and pearls from stash...the pearls are a perfect match IRL but for some reason in the photo it's got more of a purple/lilac look...they're actually a wine colour.
Well i think i've just about covered everything,
Hope you all enjoy your evening

For mine i've used a printed out decoupage sheet from Crafters Companion Popcorn the bear "Kids collection CD"...the sentiment is also printed off the CD.The actual image was the largest on the CD...too be honest when i'd printed it off it was alot larger than i was expecting....so made a 7"x 7" card...a size i wouldn't normally do.
I've added alittle glamour dust to the heart on the pram...some pearls to the scallop trim which i'd punched with a Fiskars "Threading Water" punch,to the wheels and the corners and lastly some ribbon to the handle.....i would like your opinions on the ribbon please...if you leave me a comment could you let me know whether you think i should leave the ribbon long or if i should cut it off...i'm alittle undecided on this one.
Sorry the photo is pants...for love or money i just couldn't get this one right :0(.
Well thats about it....all thats left to say is a big thank you to all who joined us on the challenge last week and hope to see you all again this week.
Have a lovely day whatever you're up to :0)
