Masculine birthday

Welcome all

Today's card was made for a fishing buddy of my husbands, who turned 79 this week.
The base is a rocker card and I added some dp cut with a stitched die. I then diecut a stitched circle in kraft, and added my stamped image which I coloured with Copics and cut out with my Brother Scan n Cut
He was very thrilled with it

white on white


White on white is very difficult to photograph, so hopefully you can see this one clearly
My base card has a slight texture, and I have diecut my leaf background and flowers in a pearlescent heavy paper.
I have embossed 'with love' along the bottom edge and also added a straight line just above using my Martha Stewart Score Board
To finish a glued a tiny pearl button at the centre of the flowers

Pretty Pink Flamingo

Welcome back and also welcome to my new follower Karen

Today's card follows the theme for Unstampables - Paradise Pretties with a twist of into the wild, which I did not do
The background paper certainly reminds me of paradise with flamingos and palm trees. Wish I was there, as today we are experiencing thunder and heavy rain!
I cut out my fringed flamingo with my Cameo Silhouette cutting machine then layered it onto a sponged shape. I also added the word 'Aloha"

Happy Couple

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog

Today's card features one of the very first stamps that I bought, and sad to say it has been reclining in a box for a number of years. However I thought it would be perfect for the challenge at Art Impressions where they are asking for 'Couple' cards
I stamped onto a 'messy play' background, and again onto a separate scrap  so that I could colour them, and glue to the card. 
A little yellow to ground them and a peeloff added. 
All layered onto a black base card
The boy cat is a deeper blue IRL

Flowers of Nature


Today's card is so pretty IRL I love the soft greens on my panel, the result of a play with Brushos. I ran a black marker around the edge to make it stand out. The flower is the result of my first play with foamarin, I added some tinting, some stamens, and some little blue glass beads. The leaves are die cuts (unknown) and the verse is from a Darkroom door set I have also added some sequins. I followed the sketch from Tuesday morning sketches, but reversed the position of the flower and the message

Allsorts #544- make your own flowers

Happy crafting

Winter Christmas

Hi everyone
This is my second post today, CASing a lovely card I saw on the internet.
First of all I made a water coloured background to sit behind the cut-out oval of my card. I then stamped the tree twice with Hickory Smoke Distress oxide, and once with Forest Moss DOX. The word Christmas was cut from a clear stamp and merry cut twice and layered

coffee lovers time again

It's coffer lovers hop week and this is my first entry.
My piece of designer paper reminded me of coffee beans, the watches are randomly stamped, and the sentiment is a sticker from Stamplorations
Mod Squad challenges - sentiment says it all
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow
