Spring in Paris

 Hello and welcome
Who wouldn't like to be in Paris in the springtime!

I am back again today after I saw the sketch at Tuesday Morning sketches and thought I would try it out.
I have used 3 pieces of designer paper, sponging the edges with walnut stain DI. Th Eiffel tower embellishment was cut with my Cameo and the circle was die-cut. I added a peeloff sticker too

Frame it

Hello and welcome

Today's card was made with a lovely set by Couture Creations.
I have stamped in a lovely turquoise colour, and embossed the frame with the matching folder. The butterflies were diecut and sponged with the same ink, as were the edges of the card. I have layered onto a matching card base.

Dotty stencil

Hello and welcome

Today's card has a background made from a dotty stencil and distress inks. I stamped the flower directly onto the panel and again onto some scrap card with my flower stamp from Stampendous which I have had for years. I coloured the edges with a red pencil and glued some very tiny beads to the centre. The stems are hand drawn. I finished with a wee piece of washi tape and a little metal heart

Sentiment in focus

Welcome to my blog

Today's card was made very quickly, by die cutting a piece of Dp with a stitched rectangle die. Stamped and embossed with 'Ebony Shimmer' ep, layered onto a toning paper, edges sponged with Wilted Violet DI, and then attached 
to a black card base. The ep is quite sparkly IRL, but does not show in the scan

For someone special


Today's card is one that I cut on my Cameo, mainly using Bazil cardstock. The file was from Dreaming Tree, and I love how it turned out.

Feathered Friend


Today's card features a lovely stamp from La Blanche - it does not have a title.
I stamped it with Adirondack 'expresso' and lightly coloured with pastel pencils. After distressing the edges, I adhered it to a toning brown base card.

I am entering the challenge at Allsorts for 'feathered friends

Flora and fauna

Hi everyone

Today's card features one of my favourite stamps by Crafty Individuals, which I have lightly coloured and matted onto a red card, and then onto a piece of DP
