Thanks...

 



Howdy folks...it's time for anther challenge over on the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog. The challenge this week is "thank you or thanks".  The challenge will run for 2 weeks so plenty time to get those cards made.

For my card I inked and embossed this fab little stamp from Altenew, coloured with my zig pens and when dried I added in a bit of gold leaf.

I die cut the thanks and added a sentiment to match and added some sequins to finish.

Hope you like.

Happy Birthday...

 


I've been on a roll this weekend...2 cards made!

Again another new stamp I bought before Christmas but never got round to colouring it.  I did take my time with this one as I so wanted it to e good but I have to say I found that hair a challenge so had to add some pencil colouring to the copic colouring...from a distance it looks ok...I think!

First Christmas card...

 


Howdy folks!

Well I did actually buy this stamp before Christmas and was gutted that I just didn't have the time to colour it in......well actually this was my 5th attempt as I just couldn't get the sky colour right with my copics and I wanted to persevere and colour with them, I knew I would have managed with watercolours but anyway I ended up making it a night time sky...maybe I should have added a moon too!  This has really motivated me to get back into colouring so here's my first card for Christmas 2021!

I coloured with copics, and there is colour on the snowman but you can hardly see, I added some little silver stars to the sky.

Hope you like!

Sweet Stampin Challenge DT card

 


Well howdy folks!

It has been a while since I have made a card a posted on my blog which I was missing big time, I have joined in with a couple of card swaps on Facebook but what better a way to get back into it so I am back where it all started all those years ago...I am back on the Sweet Stampin design team.


What a pure chance conversation that was...and I am so pleased to be back.

So after buying loads of new stamps I now have a reason to use them again.  This was just a quick card using a large stamp from Colorado Craft Company which I inked up and embossed with starry night sparkle embossing powder.

I die cut the square (one of my new dies) and layered it onto back card...think that makes it stand out.

I rubbed some distress ink over some of the image, stamped the sentiment and added some gems and pearls to finish.

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog for this weeks challenge which is "last minute Christmas", the challenge will run for 2 weeks, so get those last minute cards posted.

Have a Merry Little Christmas...


 Hi everybody, I hope you are all well.

I made this card for the card swap over on the Dies to Die For Facebook group.

Although it looks quite plain and simple, it actually took me a bit longer than I planned as I had to line up the words and tape them in place.

I die cut the words and stuck different coloured card on the back, I stamped one of the sentiments and die cut the little poinsettia which is also part of the die set.
