The weekends makes

Not much crafting over the weekend,been glued to the tennis,such a shame for Andy Murray. Love the fairy stamp she is lovely to colour in but think I should have added some plain card between the 2 patterned papers.

Twinchies Challenge One

It's so exciting today is the first challenge on a brand new challenge blog ,our first challenge them is 'Anything Goes'.
For this DT sample I used a stamp from the Papermania Urban stamps Botanical Print collection,I used Archival Brilliance in moonlight white to stamp the script,then cut a small scalloped circle from my X-Cut dies and added a Mariannes Die Rose and leaves as a topper.
Same Stamp and ink used on this the Butterfly on the smallest nestie is from the same set of stamps and a squiggle of glitter glue just for a little sparkle.
The stamp on this sample was from 'Stamper Magazine',I used versamark to stamp the Hares and the Butterfly,dusted them with mica powders,added some stickles under the Butterfly,then coated it with crackle glaze. Hope you all enjoy taking part in the challenge.

Sympathy Card

I had to make a sympathy card today I wanted to keep it simple so decided to use just white,silver and a sheer blue ribbon,not the easiest of cards to make but I do like this stamp. I didn't want to overload it with embellishments so just added a simple die-cut butterfly and two small flourishes cut from the same cardstock as the basecard.

Lazy Blogger

I have been a lazy blogger for a while,so time to pull my socks up and get busy again I have some lovely cardstock from Paperbox so made a couple of 5x5 cards with it,used my new dies and coloured the card with a brown ink it up pad,the stamps are papermanias urban stamps,they are gorgeous so tempted to buy some more from that range they stamp up so well.
