LCC #97 – Autumn

Hi There

This months challenge over at Let's Craft and Create is Autumn so I thought I would ink up my Clearly Besotted Nuts For You stamp set. This little guy is so cute, it also gave me a chance to bust out my Flexmarkers again.

Thanks for looking, Lorry :o) xx

Retro Sketches #132

Hi There,

I have been practicing with my Promarkers and the few Flexmarkers that I have in preparation for the Copic Markers for Card Makers Online Card Class. I know I have Promarkers but they are alcohol based like Copics so hopefully the principals should be the same.

I am entering this card into the Retro Sketches #132 challenge. I used the Gorguss Perrfect Day stamp set as she is quite sweet and her cat is a cutie, I also used some papers from the Simon Says Stamp July Card kit plus a few sequins from my stash.

Thank for looking, Lorry :o) xxx

Here is my effort

And here is the sketch

Clearly Besotted Challenge #13 – Autumn

Hi There

It's great to see the Clearly Besotted challenge blog is back after the summer break. The challenge this month is Autumn, which is great as I have just got super speedy delivery of the new Woodland Pals stamp set. For some strange reason I didn't get the matching die set, so I fussy cut the deer, toad stall and leaves. I used a Lawn Fawn die for the grass and some of their natural twine to finish the card off.

Thank for looking, Lorry :o) xx

OCC Copic Markers for Card Makers

Hi There,

I have just signed up for the OCC Copic Markers for Card Makers class. Although I don't have actual Copic markers, I do have Letraset Promarkers, which, like the Copics are alcohol based. Promarkers are made in the UK and are a cheaper and easier to obtain (in the UK) alternative, my thinking is that the principles should be the same.

I have had my Promarkers for many years and love them dearly but my only niggle with them is they have a bullet nib instead of a brush tip like the Copics, so fine feathered blending can be a bit of a pain sometimes. I have recently discovered Flexmarkers also made by Letraset but these babies have a brush nib, I have got some on order to try, hopefully they will turn up before class starts so I can have a play.

Anyhow, here is a card that I made using my trusty Promarkers and a stamp from La La Land which I got for £1 from a craft shop closing down near where my sister lives.

Thank for looking, and wading through my waffle! Lorry :o) xx

LCC#96 – Anything goes

Hi There,

This months challenge over at Let's Craft and Create is Anything Goes with a chance to win a Wink of Stella pen, I have had my pen for a little while now and I love it.

The card I made for this challenge uses the Simon Says Stamp April card kit, love the papers in the kit, not sure why I haven't used it more, probably out of sight out of mind!?! I have kept the layout simple to let the image and bright paper do all the talking.

Thank for looking, Lorry :o) xx
