Birthday Bunting

Today's card is a bright and cheery card on a very miserable day. The image is a Molly Blooms stamp called Molly with bunting and I have coloured this with my promarkers. She has then been placed on an oval diecut edged lightly with spun sugar distress ink. The papers I have used are from sweet memories ( free with a magazine ) and the pink cardstock is from my stash. The border has been punched using an Xcut border punch and the corner using the matching punch. The leaves have been cut from green cardstock using a die which was also a free gift from a magazine. The sweetheart blossoms, roses and cherry blossom are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the fabric and bead flowers from my stash.
I do hope you like Molly.

Until next time, take care and happy crafting.

Well, it's been a while since I was near my poor neglected blog so I've come back with a bit of noise, a roar to be precise.

I needed to make a card for a little boy and couldn't think what I'd go for and then I remembered about the Kraftyhands Dangerous Dinosaurs mini CD. Before I started the card I popped over to their challenge blog and discovered that their current challenge was to use a sketch.

It would have been rude not to have a go.

The card is 8x8 covered in orange card then I've layered on birthday blocks backing paper in blue. I've then used a background from one of the decoupage sets to create the three panels and these have also been matted onto some orange card. For the section at the bottom I've used the blue silhouette paper also from the disc as is the Happy Birthday sentiment and the decoupaged dinosaur. The orange border is Joanna sheen's lace edger 2 die from her signature range. The card has been finished with some orange gems and some orange twine including the little bow under the sentiment.

Hope to be back again soon, until then be good and happy crafting

Birthday Sky

Afternoon, hope you're all keeping well on this very blustery and showery April day.

Today's card is one using a Crafters Companion stamp from their Toread range which can be found here. This is a gorgeous range, I just can't believe it's taken me this long to blog a card using something from it.

  • The stamped image is called Sky and I have coloured this with promarkers and used a scalloped circle die to cut it out.
  • Both backing papers are from the Toread CD and the matting layers are purple pearl card from Papercellar
  • The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • The larger butterfly has been diecut from the pearl card using a joycrafts die and the little ones using a tonic punch
  • I have finished the card off with some green ribbon, a sentiment and some purple gems.

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave a little comment.
