A Bit Different




This ones a bit different from my usual style.  I was playing around with various dies and this is what I produced.

The front of the base card was cut down to allow for the silver mirri border.  After stamping the sentiment I inked through the die and also used a bit of the ink on the flower.

Red Car



I'm back from this weekend's renovation work for a couple of weeks, only to start stripping the walls in my bedroom.  I had a bit of a leak a while back so the wallpaper needs re-doing.  No rest for the wicked!!!

Anyway, I have a little card for you that I made ages ago and never showed.  The base card has been simply layered and I have embossed the top layer with a zig-zag embossing folder.  The stamped image from Stampin Up has been coloured with promarkers and a sentiment added before attaching with foam pads.  A bit of card candi finishes it off.

Kind Hearts...



Ok, so I have made another card I didn't think I would have time to make. 

For this one I have used one of my favourite quote from Woodware.  Love this gorgeous digi stamp from Besties, just look at that hair!!!  I have coloured her with promarkers, fussy cut her and attached with foam pads.  The flower, leaves and pearl brad are from my stash and are years old.  I coloured the paper flower with a promarker and sprayed it with glimmer mist (another long lost find).

Emma's Flower



I think this might be the last one today as I am back up to Wales again tomorrow to carry on with the renovating.  We are still at the 'ripping out' stage and using the bathroom as a makeshift kitchen now that the kitchen has gone.  Trouble is, we are ripping out the bathroom this weekend!!!  Luckily we are keeping sink and toilet for the time being, PHEW!!!

Onto my card which features one of my favourite flowers from Little Claire that I have coloured with pencils.  I love this stamped sentiment from Stampendous and think it goes well with this card.  The butterflies have been punched from both card and gingham paper and been offset to add movement.  I added gems to the butterflies and the sentiment.

Here is a sweet card in shades of blue.  The stamp is from Mo's Digital Pencil and has been coloured with promarkers.  The papers are from Nitwits and the sentiment ribbon slider and ribbon are from my stash.  (I didn't even know I had the slider!!!).  The hearts and border have been punched and the bunting die cut with my new dies.

Celebrating Retirement



This card features a Magnolia stamp called 'Shy Tilda' who I have coloured with promarkers and layered using die cut mats.  The background has also been layered with card and paper from Nitwits and I have added two rows of ribbon and a couple of pearls.  The leaves have been punched and the paper roses are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Hunkydory.

Another Dragon!



Here is another dragon card I have quickly made.  This one has a pre-coloured digi and paper from Beccy Muir.  It is simply layered and I have added a stamped sentiment from a very old set of stamps that I came across.  They must be at least 10 years old but still in very good condition.  Just goes to show, don't throw anything out because you might use it again one day!!!

Puff The Magic Dragon

 


Here is a little card inspired by the song "Puff The Magic Dragon" sung by Peter, Paul and Mary in 1963.  I loved this when I was a child and sang it to my children when they were little, so they loved it too.

My digi stamp is from Bugaboo and has been coloured with promarkers and layered with die cut mats.  The borders have been punched and layered with little gems added.  The sentiment is from LOTV and has been layered onto a star die cut.  The backing paper is from Paper Adventures and the ric rac ribbon is from my stash.

Winter Wishes



Another Christmas card today made in lovely pinks and blues. 

I started with a square white base card and this I covered with blue polka dot paper.  I then added some snowflake acetate which I attached on left side only.  Next I added a pink panel which I attached a border of paper and stamped the sentiment on.  A bit of die cut holly came next.  My stamp is from Pink Gem and has been coloured with promarkers and stickles.
