Playing with paper


I cased this card from one I saw somewhere on the internet, but did not take note of the designer, sorry
For the background, I used a piece of old sheet music and sponged with DI and layered onto my black card base
Using a torn scrap of cream card, I diecut the design and also coloured with DI
I arranged the fabric leaves and flower onto a wreath and attached with glue dots

Be a rainbow


 Hi, I am back again with another card for today
I chose a background out of my 'ready to use' box, which is such a pretty shade of green, and has been stamped using Penny Black 'daisy pattern'
The rectangle and square were cut with my Cameo, and I have used one of the crazy birds from Tim Holtz




Hello again

Today's card features one of Tim Holtz' Crazy Cats
I stenciled a background with Dried Marigold DI and then stamped the cat with Memento
Colouring was done with Copics

The Cat's Pajamas #372 - include an animal

AAACards #174 - up to one third

In my garden


Hello everyone

Today's card features a stamp that I have had for a number of years, Hydrangea by Rubber Stampede
I have double layered it with a matching teal mat and layered onto a white card base.
I have coloured with the following Promarkers
Arctic Blue
Cloud Blue
Pastel Blue
Pastel Green
Herb Green

I finished off by winding some silver cord around and attaching a wee silver butterfly

Vintage Beauty


Welcome friends
Today's card features a lovely stamp that a friend lent me, I believe it is by Kaisercraft.
I made the background using shiny card, Brusho's and cling wrap. I love the results you can get with this technique. I have roughened the edge and run a purple ink pad around, then layered onto a green card base.
The sentiment is raised with mounting tape.

dig it!


Hi, I am back again today with this gardener card

I stamped and embossed in black and coloured with the following Promarkers
Y247 summer sun
R346 antique pink
R766 molten red
Y524 herb green
O356 saddle brown

The sentiment is computer generated, and I added 2 strips of washi tape for grounding
The card base is a creamy colour, but did not scan well

Welcome everyone

Today I have 2 ATC's to share with you, something I have not made for such a long time, and I had forgotten how much fun they are
The theme is steampunk and I have printed my background images and added embellishments. The bicycle one is printed over the background, and touched up with a black gellyroll pen.
The cogs are stamped with Hickory Smoke DOX.
I added some  distressed silver peeloffs to both, and the first one has an old watch face attached. 
The edges are sponged with Black Soot DI
I would like to enter into the new  Steampunk Challenge #1

I then decided to make these into cards

I dry embossed 2 pieces of mirror card and swiped over the raised surface with Brilliance graphite black, then heat embossed with a black EP
Layered with black and then onto a black card base

This is my first post using the new blogger, so hope it goes OK
I would love to get rid of the extra step of redirect when reading blogs, it is so unnecessary. If anyone can help, I would be very grateful

I have followed this sketch from Sketch Saturday 
the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn, and I am not sure about the butterfly
I used snippets of black and white for the diecuts

Hello crafters

Today's card uses a sketch from Poetic Artistry
I used 3 designer papers from my 6x6 Authentique pad, which I have had for some time. I layered onto some black paper to make the design stand out. I diecut the 2 circles and stamped my vintage car (unknown brand) onto a scrap from my snippets box, and coloured with copics. I also used  Dimensional Magic on the windscreen to look like glass
