Card for Mum

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a fab weekend! We've just come back from a very enjoyable Sunday Lunch! very full now...... anyway, thought I'd just show the card I made for my Mum's Birthday, I've used Stampin' Up! lavender cardstock, I stamped the background on it with the flourish stamp from the Baroque Set in Versamark and clear embossed. The pale green is velvet card from Crafts U Love, Stamp is Penny Black coloured in with SU watercolour crayons then cut with nesties, Sizzix Alphabet, SU Ribbon and brads from stash. Used the SU scallop punch down the side and cut a strip of the lavender card for the inside edge. Finished with my usual doodling.... Hope you like.

ismaki sketch challenge

I thought I'd have another go at a challenge (I don't do them very often!!) This time I went for the Ismaki sketch challenge. I love the sketch and here's what I came up with, I've used Basic Grey papers, stamps are a mixture of Sandylion and Inkadinkadoo, Fiskars heart punch, ribbon from stash and hotfix crystals to finish. Go take a look at what the DT came up with, lovely mixture of cards! Bye for now...


OK, here's my second Valentine card I made, I was inspired by one of Enfys's cards she made on Going Buggy (link on left) to get my Cricut out, it hasn't seen much action lately...... I used one of the frame cuts on SYI Cricut cart, mounted it onto red Bazzill card, cut some hearts from George cart and layered them, greeting is computer generated, added some hotfix crystals, tuile and tiny punched heart in the centre of that.....anyway hope you like and I wish you all a fab weekend!
