Fathers' Day

I know it's a bit early yet, but I made this with the Whippersnapper stamp but I cut him out minus his hat, coloured with Prismacolours and Sansodor and blended with paper stumps, mounted him onto a piece of Bazzill Bling, papers & tag and circle top right where a freebie from a mag, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, hope you like......

Flower card

Not sure about this card, sorry for the poor quality of the photo, it started by me playing with the Hero Arts stamp and chalks, it sort of fell together from that really, not sure about the chalking, i usually prefer bolder colours! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Thanks for stopping by.

Something a bit different from me....

Something a little bit different for me...... I bought one of those mini clear stamp sets that are about £1, stamped one of the little flourishes along a strip of card, trimmed then mounted on some purple bazzill, make a wish stamp also from another small clear set, mounted onto some nestabilities scallops. Ran some white card through Swiss Dots embossing folder for the base and then added a bow at the top. That's about it really, let me know what you think......

Tilda card

Hi everyone, just made my second Magnolia card from one of the images Han sent me. Coloured with Sansodor technique, faux stitching and mounted onto Bazzil card. Background papers are the Sugar Plum series from College Press. Corner is Cuttlebug, embellishment on the bottom right is cut from matching paper with a Quickutz Cookir Cutter die, the oval was cut from George Cricut cart and then stamped the greeting, I think the greeting is from a Woodware set. hope you like.....

Magnolia Card

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a fab weekend? It's snowing and cold here, so what better reason than to stay inside and make cards! I got some stamped Magnolia images from Han in the Blog Candy that she sent me, so I thought I'd have a go at making a card with them..... I'll be honest, I wasn't sure if I liked them enough to buy any before, but I think I am slowly falling in love!!! Hope you like, by the way, I had a go at a photo with my Hubbys' work camera, not as good quality as I thought it would be.


Look what we woke up to this morning!!! Only 2 or 3 days ago we were walking around in short-sleeves!!!

Penny Black card

Penny Black stamp coloured with Prismacolours and Sansodor using paper stumps. Papers from stash, can't remember what brand they are. Happy Birthday cut from Beyond Birthdays Cricut cart. Water is highlighted with Glossy Accents but it doesn't show up. Finished with 3 glittery nail heads. I made this for my Stepdads' birthday next week, he's into fishing so I thought this stamp would be appropriate, I always get stuck with male cards!
