Cute Card Thursday - Citrus Colours

What a gorgeous day it is today so I guess it is definately Spring. For this weeks challenge I used my PB Bunnies stamp and watercoloured them in and cut them all out individually. The background paper is Anna Griffin the cardstock is coredinations from Craft at Home. Used a new cuttlebug embossing folder I think its been around for a bit but its new for me. Added chipboard letters, some ribbon and some layered flowers. This is an 8 x 8 card so its a lot bigger than my usual so it was hard to squeeze it in the photo lol!!

have a great day and thanks for visiting

Rubber Stamp Tapestry

For a couple of years I had been admiring the Rubber Tapestry Stamp Kits I have seen on sale. I finally got myself a set and had a bash at it. I was so pleased with the cards. Major hint/tip: if doing a heart or circle shape draw your shape with a pencil and it makes it so much easier to do your stamping. I am definately going to get another set of these. I saw some great card ideas on the Card-io website. In fact might just head over there now and have another look

Sketch Saturday no. 43

I loved this sketch and I havent done this challenge for awhile so I thought I would have a go. I thought I would try out some inchies stamps I got at the SECC and didnt know what to do with. I saw an article in a craft mag so i took that idea and combined it with sketch. The papers are DCWV floral and the card stock is coredinations. I used nestabilities for the frame and a scallop punch for the squares. The stamp is Penny Black and i coloured it in with h2o's and decoupaged a few of the little flowers (fiddly but worth it) The ribbon and adhesive stones are from my stash.

Thanks so much for visiting

I coloured in the black bits with a Sakura glaze pen to make them stand out. The papers are Jenn Wilson and I just used a bit of green card and some buttons, the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Recipe

This weeks challenge was a recipe of 3 brads, 2 ribbons and 1 flower. The stamp is new from my travels at the SECC (what a great time I had, I was there 3 of the 4 days it was on) I coloured it in with my new watercolours and then decoupaged it and applied some glossy accents. The paper is Melissa Frances and I used my cuttlebug for the top panel (swiss dots embossed on white card) The ribbons are both Anitas and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards who I got loads of nice goodies from. I am going to send this to my Auntie Rita as a thank you cos I always go and stay with her on the Saturday night of the craft fair and then we go back in again on the Sunday (I know Im totally mad for it you are correct)

The Pink Elephant Challenge 4 - Recipe from Ellas Kitchen

This weeks challenge was a recipe to include die cuts and ribbon. I totally borrowed this idea from a stand at the craft fair at the SECC although she did it in black and white. All you do is cut a circle to match the ink (I die cut one on my Cricut) stamp part of the image (Penny Black Flying Stars stamp I bought yesterday) in Versamark then embossed in white. I stamped the main image in Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender on to a scallop card from Craftwork cards. Then embossed with clear embossing powder. You line up the die cut circle's image over the main image for a snapshot. People have probably been doing this for years but I thought it was a rather novel idea and had never seen it before. The sentiment is another Penny black stamped and embossed to match. I punched 2 hole and then thread and tied my ribbon. Added a few adhesive gemstones to fill in a blank space that need something.

Am away to try some more of these in different colours/stamps etc.

have a great day
