Yes, It's Another Decoupaged Cutie

Good morning.  It's half term for my lad this week.  I'm grabbing some quick time while he is using my tablet, to get a card on....

It is another decoupaged cutie from my Wee Stamps pad.  Hope you are all not getting bored of these lol....


I'd forgotten how much I enjoy decoupage until I got this pad (the pretty papers are also a part of the pad).  When I first got into card making, it was decoupage I was doing until I found out about ProMarkers.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and everything else is from my stash.

 I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments, but I have to add I did not colour the image.  It is decoupage that is already coloured in (I wish I could colour like that lol).

Hopefully, you can see the layers.  The decoupaged image and papers are all part of the pad and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Everything else is from my stash.

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments, but I have to add I did not colour the image.  It is decoupage that is already coloured in (I wish I could colour like that lol).

Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge No. 213 Sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps, Crafty Sentiments Designs & Di's Digi Stamps

Good Afternoon everyone.  Another frosty day.  Our lovely snow has now turned to dangerous ice.  People around here have took to walking in the roads as it is that slippy on the pavements.  Should thaw out soon hopefully.

Today there is another fantastic challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty and the theme this week is Use Your Favourite Fold or Technique.  I have chosen favourite technique which is distressing.

Here is my card.....


I got to use this fun image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Great isn't it.  This is me and my girlies when we use to go out drinking, before I had a kid and before I moved to Buxton lol.  I've coloured it in with ProMarkers and the papers are by My Mind's Eye.  The flowers and gem in the middle of the ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Everything else is from my stash.

Super Dad

Good frosty but sunny morning to you all :)

I have a card to share today.  I made it on behalf of my lad for his Dad's birthday tomorrow.  I meant to get Brandon to do this himself, but somehow it just didn't happen.

Here it is...


He really is a Super Dad, so this card is really fitting.  It is Alf from the Digi Stamp Boutique (really need to treat myself to some more stamps from here!).  I coloured him in with ProMarkers and the papers are a mix of 12 x 12's.  The red spotty one is from pebbles.  Everything else is just from my stash.

My card was created with a stamp called Tobi with a Rose from Your Next Stamp.  Karen from this Stamp Company very kindly posted to me this rubber stamp.  It's lovely and thank you so much Karen.  I have coloured her in with ProMarkers and my papers are Carte Bella 6 x 6.  The flowers are from Wild Orchids and I have used a variety of die-cuts.  I had fun creating this twisted easel card which I have not attempted before and am really pleased with how it turned out.
