Happy Halloween

Well that spooky night is nearly upon us and the theme over at http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/happy-halloween.html is 'spooky sights'. I was a bit stuck at first as I don't own any spooky stamps so I decided to use my serif craft artist software to help me out!
Instead of using the program to create a background and add a stamped image as I have in the past I used it to create my central image and used fab Splodgeaway masks to create the background! I also used the build-a-pumpkin mask from splodgeaway to make my pumpkins.

To find out exactly how I made my card and to see what the rest of the DT have come up with pop over to http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/happy-halloween.html and take a look. Happy halloween and thanx for looking. Hugz, Jayne xxxxx

Simple Christmas

The Theme over @ http://stlukescharitycardschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ this month is simple christmas n we had to make a christmas card with no stamping that could be easily n quickly made for when we have to make lots! Out came my grand calibur n this is what I came up with.

I used a decorated card blank from Debbi Moore as a base. I embossed a christmas tree onto co- ordinations white wash card and lightly sanded it, cut it out and matted it onto linen embossed silver card. I added adhesive stones to the sides and then 'decorated' the tree with pink stickles and silver and pink liquid pearls. To tie it all in together I added a pink liquid pearl to each side. Quick and easy and quite plain for me! What's got into me lately??? lol. Hope it's given you some inspiration for when you need a card superquick! Thanx for looking. Hugz xxxxxx

Autumn Glory

Hi all. My latest project for the Splodgeaway DT was  on the Splodgeaway blog at http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/autumn-glory.html yesterday! I've been soooo busy arranging a surprise baby shower for my daughter for last night that I hadn't even realised it was on!  The theme was 'autumn glory' and I decided to go for something other than a card and made this candle and gift box.

A closer look at the detail.
Anyway pop over to http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/ if you'd like to know how I made it and see what the rest of the DT have been up to.
I'm off to my 'second home' again.....the local hospital! It's turned into 1 of those weeks again! Eldest daughter admitted Monday then sent home, youngest daughter admitted Thursday then sent home and now my eldest daughter has been told to go back today by her midwife!!! It's all go. Thanx for stopping by and hope to see you again soon. Hugz. Jayne xxxxx

Hi everyone. It seems like ages since I posted! I have been busy making cards and projects but they have been for the Splodgeaway DT and so I'm not allowed to show you them until they've been on the Splodgeaway blog or tv!
 This card was an order for a mans fortieth card. Apparantly the recipient is golf mad so this is what I came up with.
I started with an 8x8 card blank and hand cut the '40' and covered each number with paper from my stash.The golfer was a stamp I had in my stash (can't remember who makes it- sorry),. I coloured him in with promarkers and added some stamped flags and holes, also coloured with promarkers. I inked around the edges with spiced marmalade distress inks, using my fabby splodgeaway mat and added the sentiment.
It's a bit plain compared to my usual style  but it does fit the bill lol. Thanx for looking. Hugz, Jayne xxxxxxxx

A Yard of Twine !!!!!!

Our DT for the Splodgeaway blog task this time was to use a yard of something in our design. I thought I'd have a go at a card for a male and use a yard of twine (like you use in the garden!!)

As well as one of my fave Splodgeaway masks I also used the fab Indigo Blu's Alice in Wonderland stamp set that Suzicraft have recently got in stock........ love it!
Have a look @ http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/a-yard-of-twine.html for instructions on how I created my card and while you're there you can enjoy all the things the rest of the DT have been busy creating. Enjoy ! n thanx for stopping by. Hugz, Jayne xxxxxx
