Flowers and Hearts


Hello and welcome to my blog

Today's card features a stamp by Rubber Stampede 'hydrangea'. I have stamped it on kraft with versamark end embossed with detail white EP. I have added a little colour with my new Inktense pencils, attached a red bow from a scrap in my ribbon box and 3 red hearts. After outlining with black I adhered it to a white base card at a slight angle

Sailing!


Hello and welcome to my blog

Today's card features a stamp that I won a few years ago, and I am not sure who it is from. I stamped onto my card, and again onto a snippet of coloured paper. After cutting around the circle, I glued it in position on the design. I sponged around the edges and did not add a sentiment, but left it plain, as I was writing a message inside. I made it for a neighbour when he came home from a hip operation

'free yourself'


Hello and welcome to my blog

Today's card uses the colours that are required for the Rubberdance challenge for this month - pink, teal and grey.

My base card is a very pretty pale grey that has a tiny sparkle in it, but this can only be seen in certain lights. I masked off a strip with some post-it notes and sponged with di 'mermaid lagoon'. I then stamped with the same colour using one of the stamps from the Rubberdance 'Round in Circles' set and the words are from the Artist Plate set. The flower is also from Rubberdance but I don't know what it is called.

Traditional colours


Hello and welcome
Today's card features a very cute Christmas stamp that I have mislaid the packaging so I am not sure who it is by. I have coloured it with copics and promarkers and cut out with a Stamplorations die. Then layered onto a piece of Christmas DP and layered all onto a dark green base card
