Simply Sassy!!

Happy Sunday! Hope you're all having a good weekend, I've been doing the washing all morning, it seems to be never ending.

Onto today's card. I've decided to have a go at the GDT call for the release of sets 5 and 6 of the Simply Sassy stamps by Krista Smith. I just love the images so much. I've only got the first set at the mo, but my birthday's coming up in a couple of weeks, so the next sets are top of my wish list!

I've used the image 'Pillow Talk' and coloured her with my Promarkers. I used nesties Labels 10 to cut her out, then inked round her with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I've also added some K & Co. green gems. The dp is from a cheap pack I've had for ages by Paperworks I think. At the bottom, I've used my new Martha Stewart punch (I love this punch!), then inked the edges with Lettuce Distress Ink. I found some gorgeous ribbon in my stash, then tied it into a bow and added it to the white Bazzill 6 x 6" card.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:

I love these Simply Sassy stamps and have been going through inking them all up one by one. This card is for the challenge at The Sugar Bowl. It's a fab sketch by Kiki. I've used Artistic Goddess coloured with Promarkers, then I've added Glossy Accents onto the paint blobs and her glasses, and die cut with Nesties. Dps used are Anna Griffin and DCWV. I've also added a Prima gem swirl coloured with Promarkers. The stitching is faux, done with a Tim Holtz ruler for all the holes, then joined up with a fine Promarker liner pen. Other items used are yellow metal photo corners and pink brads by Papermania, and some pink ribbon from stash. All on an 8 x 8" white pearl card.

I'm back with I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 48 Punches!!

I'm back finally after a spate of bad health. I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, mine was a bit strange this year. It was the first Christmas without my darling mum.

Onto this week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers. It's #48, and the theme is 'Punches'. Our sponsor is Crafty Individuals who are offering a fabulous prize. I've just had a look at their website, and they have some gorgeous rubber stamps.

 I needed to make a card for my daughter as she turned 20 on Sunday (doesn't time fly?). I've used an 8 x 8" card blank. The gorgeous image is called Hippie Chick, and she's by an artist called Krista Smith. You can find her, and others in the Simply Sassy section from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits.

I've used Promarkers to colour the image. Other items used are Nesties Labels 10, a Tim Holtz embossing folder on white card, purple card, a Prima flower and gems, 2 different punches for the leaves (1 being Martha Stewart), a heart gem, and finally some letters and numbers from my stash. I'm not overly happy with this card, but I'm sure I'll get more creative as I get back into things.

I'm hoping to be posting regularly again now, I really missed crafting over the last few weeks. I'd also like to thank Karen for keeping my DT position open for me, I'm so pleased to be back with our fabulous team at I ♥ Promarkers.
