Who is for Coffee?

I have printed the lovely free image from Shery at Stamplorations, directly onto my card front. I printed it again on a scrap so that I could layer the two cups, which I coloured with copics. The dotty background is from a lovely stamp by Paperbabe, and the message I found on a quote website (I loved the pun) I am joining in at the coffee lovers blog hop
and also at Stamplorations Anything goes challenge, and Pixies Crafty Workshop

My second post for today!
I used two of the stamps from the Wetlands set, that I have just bought, onto a scrap of white card, adding a little colour sponging with di's.
I diecut it with a circle die, and cut another slightly larger black piece. I then layed them onto a kraft card base, and added 3 black tiny circles to finish
This is my entry for the Caseplorations June challenge

And also Happy Little Stampers - Anything goes with dies

Happy Birthday!

I made this card for a 7 year birthday which is coming up next week. He is a big fan of minecraft. I used 2 pieces of dp, and joined them diagonally, diecut the circles, the image Mr Google found for me!! The arrows and the message are embossed with silver ep.
I would like to enter this one at Casplorations for the June sketch

I would also like to add it to Crafty Hazelnuts patterned paper  challenge, as I have used 2 different papers

For this card I cut my friends name in vinyl with my Silhouette, then used 3 shades of watercolour paint and washed them over the name. When it was dry, I removed the vinyl, and went around the edge with a very fine black pen.

even more Brushos

I have had quite a productive day today In my craftroom. This is another background made with Brushos and the cling wrap technique. You never quite know how it is going to turn out. I used purple and turquoise, and I am very pleased with the result.
I stamped some assorted flowers and message from a Paper Artsy set, and stamped the flowers again on magenta card, which I cut out and paper pieced. I also went over some of the lines with my Sharpie white paint pen.
Challenges -
Rubberdance - use purple, turquoise & magenta, and optional flowers
Pixies Crafty Workshop - I used snippets for the flowers

More Brushos

My card today uses another brusho background in shades of blue and green. I have layered it onto a black card, and used a word stamp (dream) randomly onto it. The indigo blu stamps were used with versamark and detail white ep.

There is a Sporty themed challenge on over at LOTV, but I will have to email this entry to them.
I have simply layered the trimmed image onto red, then yellow, and then did the same for the message. I am also sending this one over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop, because I have raided my snippets box!

Brushos and a butterfly

I was looking through my box of Brusho pieces, and chose this one to use.
I have layered it onto a yellow card and then added an embossed strip down the side layered on to black. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart stamp which has been lying idle in a drawer for too many years. I stamped it onto a snippet of orange card, and added some glitter and Wink of Stella. Birthday wishes are from a set that I won from Paperbabe stamps. I would like to enter this into the challenges at Paperbabe: using a sketch
Southern Girls: layers
and of course Pixie's Crafty Workshop, cos I used snippets!
