Image Swap Folder and Magnolia Challenge



First up today is my entry for the Magnolia v Stampavie Challenge which was a sketch to follow. A lovely sketch it is too.
The image I've used is one from the lovely folder from shelly (see below). I coloured her with copics and layered her onto card and backing paper following the sketch. Added flowers, ribbon and bling from stash. Finished with glitter glue.



Folder and images



Next today I'd like to share this beautiful folder I received in an image swap with Shelley from Minkies Paper Paradise. It's just lovely and full of lovely stamped images. You should go and check and her blog she does great work and it's a pleasure to visit. Thanks again Shelly for guiding me through my first Image swap.

Signs Of Spring at Cute Card Thursday


This weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is "Signs Of Spring". So here is my attempt. Haven't used this Penny Black stamp in a long while but it is very sweet. I stamped, coloured with Copics and layered the image directly onto the card. I added the little fluffy tails, ribbon and buttons. A very simple card but cute too!

Here's a picture to show the cute little tails.

Cute Card Thursday


Made this card last night and thought after it might fit in with the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "music and dance".The stamp is a Penny Black stamp called "frolic" and he looks like he's dancing along full of happiness.
I stamped him in versamark Vintage sepia and coloured with Copics. I layered onto green card and then backing paper from a new DCWV pad called "sweet stack" and it's yummy. Cut the two circles with my nestabilities and added the sentiment. Added punched flowers and ribbons. Used Stickles glitter glue to finish.

Cute Card Thursday


Made a card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog.This weeks theme was "metallica" and for this i used a new "Maggie" Sugar Nellie stamp I had purchased at the weekend at The Stitch & Creative Crafts Show at Manchester Central.
I stamped her in Versamark Smokey Grey and then coloured her with copics. I followed an old Sketch Saturday sketch for the card. I layered glitter card and DCWV patterned backing paper and then for the "metallica" theme I added a strip of metallic gold card and a gold sentiment. To finish I added the little star buttons in matching colours.
Here's a picture below of the lots of layers on this card.

Penny Black Saturday wk 35


Made this card for this weeks Penny Black Challenge. The theme was romance so I took the opportunity to use this lovely sentiment stamp from Penny black.
I also used a border stamp from Penny Black. I stamped them bothe directly onto the cream card and coloured some of the flowers and leaves with copics.

I used a Sizzix die for the heart and stamped some more with the border stamp over it. I added ribbon,a flower and a sentiment to make a card topper.

Here is a close up of the sentiment stamp.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Wk 34

Haven't been able to do much crafting in the last few days, hubby was away at the weekend and now he's on a late shift and my youngest has been off school with a cold. I did manage to get up there for an hour earlier on and decided to do the Penny Black Challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a circle card.





The card was cut on the fold with nestabilities and then punched with a little hole punch all around the edge. I had the little bear stamped and coloured already ( my Mums stamp). I then layered on to a patterend backing paper and green DCWV card both cut with nestabilities. Punched a little purple heart and added the sentiment. Added ribbons, buttons and glitter glue to finish.

Sorry about the bad picture. Not alot of natural light around at the moment!!!!
