Challenge 11 What a Delight!! SCS Sugar Nellie

This week Fiona`s challenge over at SCS Sugar Nellie, was "No Embellishments" ie flowers,bling ect. Well I have chosen to go very minimal and have stamped Leanne Ellis` Belle Flower straight onto my base card.
I used my Hugy Board to emboss the corners and black peel off letters for my sentiment.
I coloured in my image using my promarkers Mustard,Gold, Warm Gray 1&2, Ice Gray 1, Lilac, Leaf green & Pear green. The linen card came from the Paperterie Stoneywood mill & the vellum was from Crafter`s Companion. The insert was printed from Crafter`s Companion Love CD rom . The theme was inspired around the bridesmaids and because I have just finished the invites have kept to the same colour theme. The colour of the dresses are unknown toa ll but the girls and of course the bride to be. Loved this weeks challenge Fi and thanks for your hard work once again!!

Sugar Nellie Challenge 8

YEH!! Great news I`ve won the week 8 challenge set by Fiona in the sugar Nellie challenge over on Split Coast Stampers. I now have to make a choice of three stamps from the HOS as my prize. I`ve chosen two of them Hamish & Maggie as I think they are sooooo.... adorable. I`ll have to have a think as to my third. As it happened I was in Elgin today home of Sugar Nellie & went in past after attending a study day for work. A few stamps happened to find there way home with me, namely the whole set of the new stamps launched this month. It` such a hard job choosing from all these wondeful images. i`m off to get my thinking cap on.

Craft Hoose Classes :- Cards & jewellery

Well as you can see I`ve well and truelly got hooked on making jewellery!! Loving Mairie`s classes and there is still lots to learn. last week we were using buttons. That was one that really did`n`t appeal to me but it was interesting to do. after three weeks of starting jewellery making I have been asked by one of the girls to make her & her mum something to go with there outfits for a wedding they will be going to in July. Wooo Hooooo!!!! How cool is that!!

My Brother in law Michael, was 50 on the 25th of May. Thought I would do a fun card for him reaching the big 50!!!! Card stock from my own stash as were the peel offs & 50 embellishment.

Peel offs coloured in with peel off markers. The image was done using the Cricut. Will be saving up for that. I`ve been having a try out with Fiona`s one & it`s definately a must for the craft room!! Insert was taken from the Crafter`s Companion Celebrations CD rom

I love this Sarah Kay stamp which was used this week in class which was themed along with border punches.

The stamp this time is my own that we used in class, Card stock and BOBUNNY pritn 12x12 papers were supplied by Yvonne as were the riboon jewels and paper flowers(from Hobby Craft I think!?) Deep border punch is a Martha Stewart one. My own stamp wa used for the saying & image was coloured in using my Promarkers.

We did this tag book at Yvonne`s class on the 24th May. This is where i got my idea of using Maggie for the SCS floral challenge.

At the class all Items were supplied by Yvonne apart from the use of the stamps, which belong to Fiona. Colouring in was done by using my own promarkers.

Boy am I glad Fiona`s Hols have extended this Challenge!!! SCS wk 8
