Pink and Pretty

Hi everyone.
I have had fun making this card. I chose some paper from my 'One Moment in Time' pad, and sponged and distressed the edges. I used a stencil from Pronty and sponged with DI spun sugar. I then die cut my corner from a scrap of pink card and sponged it with the spun sugar as well. Finished of with a scrap of string twirled and a pretty rose from my stash. I can assure you it looks much more pink IRL

Challenges - Scrap and Craft #1 - I have used stencil, rose, and paper from the options
Doing Life - a/g
In the Pink - pink!
Pixies Crafty Workshop - snippets

B&W+1

Hi everyone.
I have been a bit slack with my cardmaking this week, But I did manage to get this one done..
The floral image is from Crafty Individuals, and the words are from Rubberdance Affirmations set.
I have used a kraft card as my base and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. My white colouring is a combination of a white coloured pencel, and a Sharpie waterbased paint pen.

Challenges - Rubberdance for black and white + one (my kraft base)
A Blog Named Hero - Pop of colour (white)
Paperbabe - Anything goes


CASplorations - a/g with the option of gold, which I did not do.

Butterflies

I almost forgot to post this card. It fits in very nicely at CASplorations, where the optional colour is orange.

I have used my new (to me) SU butterfly which is very big, I stamped it on an angle while the card was opened out, and computer printed the message on the inside. I then trimmed along the edge of the butterfly, so that it shows the message.

Christmas in July

There are a few Christmas challenges in blogland at the moment so I thought I would join in.
I made a pretty Brusho background, and for the first time I added black into the mix of reds - it gives a great effect.
The stamp is by Hero Arts, and I used a sparkly Christmas embossing powder. I added stars to the corners.
Challenges -
Rubberdance - Christmas in July The starfish reminded me to use stars on my card
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - Use a sentiment

So here is the start of my Christmas cards for this year. I hope you are all doing better than I am.

Summer Florals


I was so excited to be asked by Nikki from Indigo Blu to be a Guest designer for the latest challenge 'Summer Florals'
 I used one of my new winning stamps 'Blazing Poppies'
I have used a little artistic licence in colouring, as this is not your normal colour for poppies. 
I stamped with Memento-tuxedo black, and coloured with a mix of Promarkers and a Wink of Stella pen for the wee lemon flowers. I stamped the image again on scrap card, coloured, and cut out the 3 mauve flowers and shaped and raised them with mounting tape to give dimension. I also sponged around the edges with a toning mauve Distress ink.
Challenges - 
Passion for Promarkers - summer flowers
Pixies Crafty Workshop - snippets
Paperbabe - anything goes
