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

A boring title I know, but it is late, and I have to work tomorrow.
The stamps are both from a Creative Expressions set called "Festive Florals" I stamped the flower 3 times so that I could 3d it. I coloured it with a mixture of copics and promarkers, and added white Sharpie pen for the stamens.

Happy Birthday!

Allsorts are celebrating there 5th Birthday this month, so I thought I would pop this into the challenge.
I stamped the flowers on a scrap of orange card and cut them out, then layered onto some washi tape. The centres are Candi. I then stamped the sentiment and layered onto matching orange card and then onto white base card. I would also like to enter at

I have had great fun creating this box card. I cut the large stars and balloons on my Cameo, and also used vinyl to cut the 'congrats' and adhered it to acetate.
The smaller balloons and stars were cut with punches. I ran the background paper through my cuttlebug and swiped them with an inkpad to highlight the pattern, then used a red 'Kindyglitz' to outline.

Flower Power

Today's card is inspired by one of the projects at the Paper Artsy blog this week, by Joanne Wardle. I really like her style of cards. I have stencilled my spots, and stamped the branch with an old foam stamp, then added a crochet flower and 2 paper flowers. The sentiment is a stamp from Darkroom Door.
