On Tiptoe

A recent card I made from Lili of the valleys lovely range of stamps. This is "on Tiptoe" which is just a delight to colour. Made for a birthday swap Ive used a Martha Stewart punch and Basic Gray Sugar Rush papers and that flippin butterfly punch again. Im pretty sure the final card had a sentiment on it but think I must have taken the photo before I got that far.

....and another Charlotte

Had great fun recently playing with the recent Tim Holtz TSV bits and bobs so incorporated some into this birthday card (Hope you liked it Lisa)
Kraftin Kimmie Charlotte again. One of my favorite stamps but then which stamp isn't!
I've used distress ink to edge the papers then dusted with perfect pearls though the picture doesnt quite capture the full bling impact. The flowers have also been given the same treatment then finished with pearls. I used my Martha Stewart loopy punch round half of the mat and Glossy Accents to highlight the coloured dots. The sentiment is a white craftwork card strip that has also been got at with the distress inks

rosy posy again

I sent this card to Jan in a crafttelly birthday swap. I love little Rosy Posy, Such a sweet image and perfect for all occasions.

As usual the colouring is promarkers (though I used copics for the face) I used basic grey papers That Martha Stewart butterfly punch again their wings are stickled to make them nice and glittery and the large flower has glossy accents to highlight the centre

Mothers Day

Mothers day card made for my MIL. An easel card. I've used a lili of the valley stamp (so it fits into their blog card challenge this week) and coloured with promarkers.Lots of Nestie circles and a few MS butterflies (love that punch) The papers a mix of bazzill and Basic Grey.

I have used stickles on the fairy wings, the roses and the butterflies but my photography skills just dont capture the sparkle that you real in real life. Took the card over to MIL's today as tomorrow Ross is off to another friends and to be honest its a day of mixed emotion for me as my mum is no longer around.

Hope all you mums out there have a lovely day

Francesca from Kraftin Kimmie

This is Francesca. I'm sure you recognise her as one of the gorgeous Kraftin Kimmie stamps. I made this one for a recent birthday swap (Happy Birthday Lorraine).
I had hoped to use a really sweet strawberry charm I had in my stash to finish it off but of course I couldn't find it! I did order some more but, unfortunately, they didnt arrive in time. Made do with a Loopy MS Punch and some scrummie roses from Wildorchids.
I've been really productiove in the last week or two and have another 5 cards waiting to be posted which is much too organised for me. As several of them are birthday cards I won't post any pictures until after the birthday girls have received them but hopefully I will have a few new posts over the next couple of weeks

another birthday boy

This one is for a pal of Ross' whos party he is off to today. Pretty much a last minute job as I rushed it together last night.(not like me!)
The hardest bit was cutting and folding the Side step base don't know why but it took 3 attempts to get it right
Used some Superhero decoupage and papers I bought from Create and Craft ages ago A quick and easy card but hopefully ok for an 11 year old who is still into all things spidey Just wish I had the Martha Stewart spiderweb PATP punch
