Brayer 'n' Butterflies

Hi all.  Over at http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk this week the design team had to make a project using a brayer. This was quite a challenge for me as the only time I've ever used a brayer was ages ago at uni to do monoprinting! I've never used one in my papercrafting before! Anyway I played around for a while and this is what I came up with:

I really like using the splodgeaway masks as a 'stamp' and using them to emboss with. Have a look at http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk and you can see how I've made my card and see what the rest of the DT came up with. Thanx for stopping by. Hugz, Jayne xxxxx

Happy Sassy Christmas

I made this card for the challlenge over at http://kennykskraftykrew.blogspot.com/ where the theme is 'sassy christmas'. Kenny k has such sexy images to choose from they're made for your cardmaking for the special man in your life! lol.

The flash has spoiled the effect a little but you couldn't see the card without it!I made a wardrobe card and cut it down so the front was a little like opening a present! After colouring the digi stamp with pro markers I cut it out and used foam pads to attach it to the inside that had been decorated with a paper from HOTP. I edged it with fine border peeloffs and then added the gold mirricard border to the front flaps so only her face is visible when the card's closed. The wide red ribbon and bow added a feel of luxury and I used foils to give the top half a distressed look.

Inside I used Dyan Reavley's christmas downloadable sayings on the left side which goes with image perfectly and just stamped merry christmas on the right hand side, leaving room to write a message.
Hope you like the sassy christmas card and take a look at Kenny K's..... they have some Fab images up for grabs if you enter their challenges. Hugz, Jayne xxxx

Contemporary Vintage

The theme on the Splodgeaway blog this week is 'splodge and blend - create a new trend' and my card is featured today. I went for my fave vintage but brought it right up to date by using a blue colour pallette.

Have a look at http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/splodge-blend-goes-vintage-by-jayne.html for the full instructions on making this card and see what the rest of the design team are up to. Bye for now. Hugz, Jayne xxxxxxx

A New Addition!

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while but I've been soooo busy and I also have another good reason....... My daughter gave birth to my first grandchild on Sunday 11th November. My daughter and her fella, Cain have a beautiful baby boy they've called Kian Anthony. Thankyou to the two of them for allowing me to share and be at the birth. It was the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me and well done Sian. You were a star - soooo proud of you. Anyway here's a pic of the little man.

How cute ??????    

Of course I made them a card to mark the occasion and used my fave baby stamp from Joanna Sheen. Unfortunately I think it's been discontinued now but you might be lucky enough to get hold of it.

The pic doesn't really do it justice (I really must brush up on my photography) but you get the idea. I found a really lovely poem on the internet but it was annonomous so I can't link it or thank anyone.
Anyway it was just right for my card.

Is'nt it just beautiful? Of course in my card it was straight !! lol.
Thanx for looking. Hugz, Jayne xxxxx

Vintage Christmas Card

Morning Everyone. Once again my card is on the splodgeaway blog. The theme was vintage ladies and I decided to do something a bit away from my usual vintage offerings! This is what I came up with:
Vintage images always look soooooo straight-faced and I thought this sentiment from Dyan Reavley fitted in perfectly! Sorry the pic quality isn't so good but I had a catastrophe with my micro sd card and so had to take the pic on my mobile and email myself it!!!!!
Tom is on create and craft tomorrow with loads of fabby new splodgeaway goodies and tons of inspiration sodon't miss that and why not pop over to http://splodgeaway.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/ and take a look at what eveyone's been up to. I'm off to search for my sd card for hours AGAIN lol! Thanx for stopping by. Hugz, Jayne xxxxx

November Splodgeaway Challenge

 I decided to make a christmas wall hanging instead of my usual card lol!

I used some Molly Bloom stamps as the main focus that were in a christmas mag n stamp pack and coloured them with my promarkers. The background was made using Splodgeaway snowflake-a-lot mask and various blue distress inks. All my supplies were purchased from Suzicraft.

Some close-ups of the images as you can't see the detail on the main pic!

Lots of stickles and liquid pearls added the finishing touches!
Have a go yourself and be in with a chance of winning those Splodgey goodies! Thanx for stopping by. Hugz, Jayne xxxxxxx
