For Dad

Now that Father's Day has been and gone I can share my card I made for my Dad. I was inspired to make it by the Stash Raiders article in Quick Cards Magazine. It was a great way to use all the different odd fonts I have kept in my crafty stash!

I am entering this into the following challenges :
Lexi's Creations - Father's Day / Male Birthday 
Dream Valley Challenges - Father's Day / Male
Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Father of for a Male

Also had a great boost this morning. As a stall holder on The Supermums Craft Fair, my Thank You Card was pinned onto Pinterest. This morning I was so excited to see that Hobbycraft had repinned it in their own Thank You Teacher Board :)

Beside The Seaside

Its probably not the best place to be today on the South Coast as its raining! Is that summer gone? Anyway staying on a seaside theme I have created this card to enter this week's Docrafts Challenge.

I used a Michael Powell Beach Hut stamp for the main image, coloured in with Promarkers and decoupaged. The papers are from the new Docrafts Seaside Collection which I used to make the bunting as well. I finished off with a greeting "Wish You Were Here". I have to say I love it!

Other challenges I am entering :
Crafting Musketeers - Use a stamped image
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

Seaside Twinchie

What a lovely warm weekend we've had in the South of England today. Have also been reading up on patchwork today and hope to make inroads into a quilt very soon. I'm not very experienced at quilting but the heart is willing!

I made another little Twinchie this week for Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge which has the theme of the seaside.

I used a combination of stamps on a background coloured with Promarkers. I added sand Flowersoft and cut out bunting to finish. I think I might make some cards for my Etsy store like this!

No Place Like Home

The Sunday Postcard Art Challenge is one I've been meaning to enter for a while now and finally have! The theme this week is No Place like home and must be no bigger than 6 x 4" in size.

I created this first by applying Distress Ink in Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint using Cut N Dry Foam. The PaperArtsy houses were stamped and embossed with WOW Black Glint Powder onto watercoloured card that had been sprayed with Glimmer Mists. The heart was created by using the Direct to Paper technique again using Distress Inks. Finally I added the text using a stamp from WOW Embossing Powder.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges :

Ali Craft - Anything Goes

Bees and Butterflies Twinchie Challenge

Finally summer seems to here on the South Coast, I managed to get some spray inking done this morning in the garden!

My offering to you today is my Twinchie for the Twinchie Challenge which is Bees or Butterflies. I used the InkyDoodles stamp set Primitive Angel 2 which is an absolute favourite of mine. I stamped the beehive and bees then coloured it all in with Promarkers.

Back soon!
