Buttons and Beads...

I've made this card for the challenge over on Funky Fairy this week. The theme is 'Buttons and Beads'. Papers are from the Baby Bee range from Crate Paper, and the image is a Tilda stamp from Magnolia. Rub on letters are from Doodlebug.

A close up view of the button and beads detail. Beads are threaded onto a small safety pin and attached to the button centre of the flower.

Catch up time!!

Mega catch up time for me... where do all the days go??

This first card is for the 'Wildlife' challenge over on Stamp Something. The image is from Penny Black. Not sure what the papers are... I've already used the bits with the name on, so can't identify these scraps.

This next card was made using one of the papers in the 'It's a Spring Thing' digital kit by Kay Miller, and fits in with the challenge over on Scrummy Stash Cafe . This week the theme is 'layers' I've printed one of the background papers and then layered some of the flowers. Then added doodled dots and bling rhinestones... yummmm. The stamped sentiment is from Daisy Bucket.

'Die cuts' are this weeks challenge over on Papertake. I've used my circle nestabilities to create the scallop circle and then just sat the coloured Tilda image on it. Paper is from K&Co, bought ages ago and just found it! The patterned corner punch was bought in November and only just started to used it.

The challenge over on My time to craft this week is 'Brads and Eyelets'. I don't have that many eyelets but brads are a totally different thing! I've attached 3 brads in the centre of the pale blue flowers. Papers are from the 'Squadron' range from Kaiser Crafts.

Well, I've made a christmas card. Cute Card Thursday has 'Christmas' as their theme this week. I did make this card a while ago, but never uploaded it. Papers... not totally sure.. Image is from Pink Petticoat, Christmas sentiment stamp is from Stamps Away.

New cards...

I've been so busy lately. Still able to do the odd card or too but not to sit and update... sorry. Here are a few of the cards I've been able to do over this long holiday weekend.

This gorgeous blue and brown tilda is for the new challenge over on Tilda and Co. It's 'tearing' and I'm all for that! The paper I've used is my new Dream Street - 'Something Blue'. Sentiment is a Pebbles rub on.

I've had this Penny Black image for a while and wondered what card it would suit. Saw the challenge over on Theme Thursday - 'Transportation' and thought it would qualify (even if only verrrry loosely)!
Coloured lightly with watercolour pencils.

The challenge over on Scrummy Stash Cafe is 'Weddings'. I've used the hearts embossing folder in my cuttlebug and the image is a clear woodware stamp.

Purple weekend!!!

I visited a local craft shop and bought some new fabby papers and ribbons. As with all new stash I wanted to use it right away, so the following cards have all been done using the same supplies. Papers are by 'The Paper Company Studio' and the 3 that tempted me were, 'Aubergine Lattice, Rose Impression and Chateau Stripe'.

This card is for the challenge over on Mojo Monday. Image is from Pink Petticoat, Jewels are from Kaiser.

The 2nd card another sketch challenge over on Papertake. This image was very kindly sent to me by a friend.. it's a Hanglar & Stanglar, just gorgeous.

This next card is another sketch, this time on Ismaki. Image is another of my gift Hanglar & Stanglar. I just love the idea of a bright pink dinosaur!!

UK Scrappers cybercrop

There has been a cybercrop over on UKScrappers this weekend. I'm not one for layouts at the moment so I've only completed 1 class. This was designed by Marlene and was entitled 'The devil wears Prada'. I've used some of my new Pink Petticoat images. I've coloured the background paper to make it fit with the red and black theme. The ribbon, flower and buckle are far too old for me to remember where or when I got them.

Girly... but blue

The challenge over on Tilda & Co this week is to create something with a feminine theme... but using the colour blue. So after a lot of creative mess... I came up with this card. In the process of wondering what to do I discovered a corner punch I bought back in November and had never used! (I have too much stuff)! The girl and the tulip background are both Magnolia, flowers are from a punch.
