First of all - welcome to my newest follower Kevmac, thanks for joining

This weeks card features a lovely stamp from Crafty Individuals, sorry I don't have a number for it. I have paper pieced the dress in a printed paper, and the hat and brolly in a plain colour. The paper has the edges sponged with Dried Marigold DI. The background is another CI stamp done in 2 different colours, randomly torn and placed behind. The lovely paper flowers have been in my stash for a number of years, and they do match better IRL. Sometimes scanners manage to change colours!!

Just sneaking this one in at the last minute at
Sweet Stamps.
Their challenge this month is parchment or vellum. I stamped my flower 3 times on some vellum scraps and embossed in white. I cut out the layers to make this pretty flower, and added it to my background of brayered Fresco paints, and a piece of sheer ribbon which is coloured and heated for that lovely 'crumply' look
I will also pop into Pixie's Playground with this as I used up some scraps of vellum

A little bit shabby chic!

I couldn't wait to try out my new stamp set that I won from Paper Artsy.
I stamped it onto a slightly linen finished card, and then stamped again onto kraft. I cut out the 3 elements, sponged all the edges, and adhered with mounting tape. Finished off with some toning baker's twine.

Birthday Celebrations

My card this week is a sweet little decoupaged fairy holding a flower. I have used a snippet of a patterned paper along the left side and added a birthday sentiment. I have glittered her wings with Kindy Glitz.

Christmas in July

I am very 'last minute' with this card before the playground gates close!!

I have used a scrap of card which I embossed with the holly folder and then added some red sparkle for the berries. The image has been upcycled from one of last year's.

Paper Artsy challenge

I loved this weeks sample from Joanne Wardle, at the Paper Artsy blog and this is my attempt.

I printed the sentiment (sorry I don't know who it is by) on kraft card

Added the splatters from the
HPXT01 set and lightly sponged the edge with walnut stain DI
