Kadoodle DT card.....


Hello,

Today I am feeling mostly disgusting! We haven't had any water since 5pm last night eew can't have my normal 200 million showers. Oh I hope it comes on soon, the water company said midday, please, please, please let that be true. Or I will soon be known as the stinky Kim, let alone any washing machine, dishwasher and don't go there with the loo's. Anyhoo in the meantime here is another Kadoodle DT card made from the kit sent to me. This is Amelia, I have coloured her with pencil and sansador. The circle is cut out using the cuttlebug. I have hand sewn with silver thread. The swirls are embelliscrap. Well signing off from the slightly high kim x

Kadoodle DT card


Hello,

I have made this card with the Kadoodle dt pack sent to me. This is James I have stamped in versafine, coloured with pencil and sansador. For his hat I added glitter and the berries diamond glaze. The snowflakes behind James are paperartsy. There is a lot of stickles but not sure if they show up too well. The strip behind James is punched with a fiskars border punch.

Tilda & Co Challenge..........


Hello,

Hope your week has been good so far. The challenge at Tilda & Co is to make a card for under £1. Well, I found this quite daunting, as I never think about what all the bits and pieces cost as I start to make my card. I decided to keep it as simple as possible so I wouldn't have to add up and calculate too much. My brain would not be able to cope. I stamped Tilda with versafine and coloured her in with distress inks. The scalloped oval I distressed with aged mahogany, stamped with katzelcraft and sprayed with silver glimmer mist. The basic grey paper I distressed with aged mahogany and stamped magenta corners and used inkssentials to colour the flowers. The little hearts I stamped with paper artsy and added inkssentials detail. I also added liquid pearls platinum to my card to add depth.

The cost of my card is as follows. Card 10p, basic grey paper 16p, white and black card 20p, ribbon 10p total cost 56p. phew!

Thank you so much for looking.

Hello,

I have seen that Whiff of Joy are looking for entries for a Guest designer. Katharina has asked that if you would like to be considered, that you make a card using one of her sketches with any stamp, post it on your blog and link it back to her. This is the card that I have made. I have used the hanglar stamped image that the lovely Lorraine sent to me. I have been hoarding these, but couldn't resit any longer. I have coloured my image with pencil and sansador and the background with twinkling h2o's. The paper I have used is basic grey and backed onto bazzill.

Hi,

I would like to say a very BIG thankyou to you all, for your lovely messages of get well. They helped me on my way to recovery and I feel great now hurray! you are all simply the best and I can tell you they cheered me up no end thankyou. So without further ado this is my entry for the 2 Sketches 4 You by the extremely talented Laura. Ok, this was right out of my comfort zone but as I got into it I really enjoyed taking part. I layered my card with bazzill and MME which I distressed with brilliance. The scallop was cut with cuttlebug, alcohol inked with silver and then embossed with swiss dots. Tim Holt's numbers distressed with aged mahogany then glimmer misted and stamped with french script. The key was a glimmer mist die and misted. The swirls around the sentiment are paper artsy.
Thank you for looking and have a fantastic day.
