Poppy Sparkle

Hello all

Another card today, made for the Memory Box challenge, which is to use glitter paper, or glue.
I diecut a piece of pearl metallic card with a TH die and backed it with a piece of red card which I glittered with WoW fine glitter.
I diecut my poppies twice, once in green card, and once in red card. I added Art Glitter glue and more of the WoW glitter to the red poppies, When dry, I trimmed them and glued to the green layer. A stamped bee and some washi tape completed the card

Hi Everyone.
I hope you are all being very crafty, my country is in total lock-down, so I am having fun in my craft room to pass the time.

For this card, I stamped a piece of cream paper with some clocks and cogs to make my background. It looked too bright so I layered a piece of velum paper over it to soften. 
I cut the penny-farthing on my cameo silhouette, and glued to the velum. I also added a small brad in each corner, and some peel offs that look like hinges. Then attached to my dark maroon base card.

Learn, Live, and Hope

A very appropriate message for our world today!

I have used a 'mop up' background from my experiments box and stamped with my new Lavinia stamp 'Luna Lights' I thought the sentiment went well, but not sure who is the maker. I also added 3 matching sequins and attached to a matching card base

Yee Hah!

Good morning crafty peoples! I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

First of all I would like to welcome my newest followers, Tracy, Donna, Joy, Linda, and Karen. 

Today's card, for a friend's birthday,  features the second set that I bought on my holiday, another set from Art Impressions. This one is called Cowboy Wiggle Wobble

I used some designer papers, cut with my cuttlebug for the background, then stamped and coloured the separate pieces with my Promarkers,
Cadet Blue
Pastel Blue
Pastel Beige
I then cut them out with the dies from the set and assembled them together with the provided brads. He is attached to the card with an action wobble, and looks so cute when shaken!
The sentiment is also from the set
