Sunday stamper shiny challenge

Hi all,

This card i have made to enter into Hels Sunday Stamper challenge, I love looking at Hels blog, and she has inspired me to use some stamps that i brought years ago but never got round to using them!!

Here is the card i made using some stamps from Paper artsy, i love the cat!!

All the stamped bits are from the same set (not sure what it is called code on bag is CMCT), i embossed 'Meow'with some copper embossing powder, the tag i had a go at stamping into embossing powder( extra thick clear and Palm green 'Sparkle n sprinkle' embossing powder. Coloured the cat in using promarkers, and attached a couple of 'Around the block' cat brads. Stamped onto some old ribbon stuff.

I am entering this into the following challenge

Come rain or shine....

Hi Everyone,

It is so cold still isn't it?  i don't want to leave the house lately, just want to hibernate..

Anyway the card below is one i have made for the Joanna Sheen Challenge 'Come rain or shine'

I used an image fro the Joanna sheen 'Dancing with shadows' cd, and printed it onto Acetate, then layered it onto white card, and onto some blue embossed card, I die cut some fence out using a sizzix originals die, attached some flowers, buttons etc, the text i got free from a magazine.

A little bit different i think..

Someone special....

Hi All,

Another entry into the forever friends blog challenge

On this card i stamped the image and coloured in with promarkers, paper pieced the balloons.  Then i used some HOTP printed papers i got from a magazine, layered them up and cut some flowers out to attach as embellishments. I experimented this time with the type of ink i used to stamp the image with, i tried a light one, but i am not sure if it worked? i think it is too light.

Anyway this card is being entered onto the following Challenge

Hi all,

Here is a card i made a while ago......

This card is a very quick and easy card to do, i had some Plastic clear card blanks with Best wishes printed on the bottom corner( brought a job lot from a craft show ages ago), then attached some metal fishy embellishments onto the front, and inside added a piece of Joanna sheen printed paper using a couple of eyelets. Voila!

Hiya Bloggers

Not had much time lately to make many cards.  So here is one i quickly did.

Todays card is one i did using some free stamps from a magazine, and some free printed papers. I Stitched them onto some card, die cut the stamped image out and attached a few jewel embellishments and ribbon(probably cut from the inside of a top!!). I love stitching my cards it gives such a nicer feel to the card.

Quite a quick card to do.

Thanks for looking at my Blog

Happy Retirement

Hi again,

Here is a card i made for a retirement.

 I used various papers from my stash and embossed some card with a Sizzix embossing folder, then added some strippy ribbon.  I printed off a beach hut from a crafters companion cd, decoupaged it up and added a forever friends bear. Glued a few mini shells round the base of the beach hut. I die cut the text using a sizzix die set called 'Ida lou's flower box', added it to the paper and punched some holes and added eyelets, then threaded twine through and attached a couple of charms.

This is on a A4 size card.

Hi all,

Today's card is one for the cycle fans, i made it for my brother in law's birthday. 

I used a 'that special touch' mica mask through my big shot and sanded the orange card down slightly, for the background, then i stamped and embossed some bicycle's and cut out. Then added some cork letter tiles spelling out related words. Finally added some text at the bottom with a couple of balloon brads.

Quite a simple card to do, not too fussy....

Can't wait for the summer sun.......

Hi all,
