Today's card features the lovely music stamp from Crafty Individuals. I have placed it into a decorative card blank which I coloured with Promarkers and a Sakura glitter pen. The dancing couple is a very old stamp by PSX, and I computer generated the words.

oh boy!

Today's card is for a new baby boy. I have added the piece of dp to the top section, and used my 'tied together' embossing folder on a scrap of matching blue for the bottom section. (it matches better IRL)
I stamped the Docrafts image, and coloured with copics and promarkers, then fussy cut and layered it with mounting tape. The scrap of blue ribbon covers the join nicely.

Lots of Love

Today's card uses an interesting technique that I came across somewhere on 'blogland' I swiped my ink pad (Brilliance pearlescent lavender) across the raised part of the embossing folder, and the ran it through my cuttlebug, which then left a coloured image on the card. I then stamped my butterfly with the same ink onto the card and also a wee snippet of velum. I ran the velum through with my swiss dots folder and cut it out and attached over the image. I added some wee 'diamantes' to the body, and stamped the message in the same ink.

Quick Post

I have made a little wall hanging from a coaster. The background is painted with Fresco Nougat and the dabbed with picket fence stain. I stamped the words on a scrap of card and cut them out and edged with walnut stain DI. The flourish is an old stamp (unknown brand) and the little butterfly is coloured orange and then gone over with Wink of Stella pen. I have then added glass fragments to the edge.

Top Bloke!

Today's card features a cute golfer from one of the Sullivan's sets. I have coloured him with a mixture of Promarkers and Copics.
The golf ball and the message are from the same set
I layered them onto a piece of dp from my snippets box and I sponged the edges with walnut ink DI

I am back again

....after a long absence - life got in the way of my crafting time.
This card uses up some scraps from my 'snippets' box. The strip was an experiment with 2 colours of paint and 'smooshing' 2 pieces of card together. I rather like the effect it gives. The flower image is stamped twice, with the main flower trimmed and layered to give a 3d effect. I have used copics and promarkers to colour it.

I am slowly getting back into cardmaking again, and had a little play this afternoon.
I cut a circle card, and applied some DP to the front. I then layered a band across, added a diecut flourish, a felt flower with a tiny button, and stamped the birthday message in a toning colour. Both DP's and the card for the flourish were from my snippets box
