Seaside Anchor

Good morning all!
How time flies, it's Thursday already!
Time for this weeks Just Inklined card !


I've made a Beachy type card! The image I have used is
a perfect image for a male or perhaps just a beach lover.
So many occasions spring to mind.....
I used a Kraft base with a strip of corrugated card in the same colour.
Some gauze, raffia, fish charms, an anchor charm & a little shell.


I coloured my image with promarkers. The sand was done with a distress
marker. I have only one, in Vintage Linen, but it worked perfectly for the sand!
The sky was Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
I popped up the image on some foam tape.


The usual side view to finish!
Hope you like it! Thanks for hopping by!

Vintage Christmas

Good morning everyone & a very Happy Monday to you all!
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at
Ooh La La Creations, where the theme this time is
Here's my card!


I love vintage Christmas cards, so I had a go at this!
The image & papers are from the Passion for Fashion CD rom,
available in the Ooh La La Creations shop here
I did add one other paper, the musical one, which is from
Papermania. I punched a  border on that one using a Tonic, 
Fleur De Lys punch. I did a bit of inking with Vintage Lace distress ink too.
The design of my card is based on this sketch 



I added a ribbon frame to the topper. 
The ribbon & lace are from my stash as is the button,


I haven't done anything to the inside of this card yet, I was
aware of the sky darkening & didn't want to miss the best of the light.
Hope you like it!

Match Of The Day

Good Morning All
Happy hump day!
I have a card to share with you today!


This 8x8 inch card was made using the Match Of The Day sheet, from the
 Flipping Families CD Rom. You can also purchase the pre printed 
decoupage sheets or downloads from La Pashe.
The papers were also from the CD Rom.
The little grass border was a die cut, not sure who the die is by.
The little footballs were cut from one of the papers & layered for
a bit of dimension. The sentiment is from the sheet & the little
die cut trophy was part of a candy that I won eons ago.


Here's a closer look at the main image, layered up using pinflair glue.


Here's a look at the inside of the card.

Fashion In A Flash

Good Moning all,
Here's another little card from me!
This card was made using a kit I got from Create & Craft.
It was really quick to make!


The card base is Dottie Card from Anna Marie Designs
The measuring tape was part of the kit as was the sentiment button.


Embellishment wise, I picked up on the buttons in the image,
 & added a few in similar colours  from my stash. I also 
added a little ribbon bow.


I popped the image & the sentiment up on some shaker tape
for a little bit of dimension!
I don't often use these kits for card making but they are super speedy
 to put together & can give you lovely results!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed your visit!

Just Inklined To Hop With Ribbon


Good Morning all,
It's the first Monday of the month which means it's time for the 



(If you're looking for my Ooh La La Creations post,
please scroll down to the next post!)

I am your host this time & the theme is Ribbon!
Here is what I created.


The image I've used is Kissing Robins.
I've used this image already but I love it so much I just had to use it again!
If you're in a hurry to hop on then please do, but don't foget to leave a little love
at each stop because we always have a little spot prize or two
 to give away to someone who leaves a comment

Your next stop on the hop is Nicole, whom I'm sure has created 
something awesome for you to drool over.
I don't think you'll get lost as we are still quite thin on the ground but 
here is the hop order should you want it!
If you want to know more about my card, please read on.


I used a "Vintage Linen" distress marker & flexmarkers to colour the image.
I also inked pretty much all of the paper elements with Vintage Linen distress ink.
The papers I used are from the First Edition Christmas Village stack.
The striped ribbon is from Lidl & the lace was from my stash, I
have no idea where this partcular piece came from, everything I've used
on this card has been in my stash for at least a year or two even!
It's great to have the chance to use things up!
I'm loving these muted colours & tones at the moment.


I used a grand nestie sqaure die, to cut the main DP, & used the section I cut off
for the panel at the top. The DP is actually double sided so worked really well.
The scallops were created with a punch & the embossed sentiment was cut
from a scrap of DP from the same stack.
I hope you like my card.
