Cuddly Buddly Kyle

Decided it was about time I made some mens cards for my box because whenever I need a mans card I've never got any and seeing as I really don't enjoy making them I thought if I can get a few made in advance I would be laughing, but you won't believe the trouble I am having trying to come up with some ideas. Anyway this one is made with Cuddly Buddly's Kyle stamp, coloured with Copics and the papers are from Shabby Princess.

PB and Papertake Challenge

Have combined two challenges again today, PBSC which was to make a mans card but with no blue and PTW which was a sketch by Katharina. I have used a PB stamp coloured with Copics and the papers are from Raspberry Road. Think I might need to re think this card because I'm not happy with it cos its too plain.

Animal Antics

Animal Antics is the theme for this weeks MTTC. All you have to do is use an animal on your project, so once again I have choosen to make a Christmas card. I have used a PB stamp, coloured with Copics, papers from Pink Petticoat, the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and a greeting printed on the PC.

Tuesday, 2 September 2008


I couldn't resist the Tilda and Co challenge this week, it was embossing, so it was the ideal opportunity to get my Cuttlebug out again. Have coloured Tilda with Copics but I've run out of the card I usually use so had to use thinner card and it didn't seem to take the ink so well but will have to do till I go to the craft shop. Flowers and brads from stash and text printed on PC.

Stars And Stripes

This is my card for this weeks PBSC which was to use stars and stripes on your card. I have used papers from Pink Petticoat and the image has been coloured with Copic Markers. The ribbon was from my stash and the greeting was printed on the PC.
