Cheerful StampPad challenge – a new baby

For my card for the Cheerful StampPad challenge, I have used 4 separate digistamps from Stitchy Bear for this CAS card. I used Promarkers in Pastel Blue, Cornflower and China Blue. I have mounted the topper onto Bazzill cardstock in matching blue.


Challenges are:

Girl’s birthday

The rubber stamp used to make today’s card is from Lili of the Valley. The Rabbit is coloured with Promarkers showing how beautifully soft the colours can look.   The papers I have used are from a collection called Little Bo Peep and the wording is glittered stickers from Forever Friends at DoCrafts.

Here is the sketch I used and rotated:







And here is my finished card.

Keeping it krafty

I have made a card today using a kraft card base and hessian (or burlap as it is called in the US).  The decoupage bear is form Doolicraft and the self adhesive ribbon came from a bargain bin at Hobbucraft some time ago.

Creative Fingers Challenge – Add Texture

This little cutie is a digistamp from Oddball Art who are sponsoring the challenge this week at Creative Fingers. The Union flag has been run through an embossing folder to add a floral texture. The papers and flag are from old Kanban stash.  I do love bunting on a card as it gives a sense of celebration.The flowers are from my stash, adding teture and contrasting colour, which is why I love them on my cards.


I’ll be entering these challenges today
