Round & Round The Garden!

My neighbour gave me the idea for round cards and I already had the large round Go Kreate dies so I made the card blanks myself. The papers are all Doodlebug and the stamps are clear Hero Arts.

My second card for today is made using a stamp by Dimension Fourth, this is such a fun image and really easy to colour in with Copics or Promarkers.

I run a small Craft Club in our Church Vestry once a month and by popular request we made cards for men last night.
The first card is made using and old wood mounted stamp I've had for ages and it's coloured with Promarkers. The background is made by punching 2 sizes of circles from contrasting card and sticking them directly onto the card blank. I've used a black and white pen to draw some faux stitching.

This card is made using another wood mounted stamp that I've had for years. I've used Glossy Accents to make the doggies shiny and a herringbone embossing folder for the background.

Finally our last card for the night was made using a Little Claire peel off sticker which was again coloured using Promarkers.

Flower Soft Moments In Time Toppers

I normally like to stamp but fell in love with these toppers at Ally Pally last year. After sitting on the shelf since September I decided to have a play with them and really like the way these have turned out - hope you do too.
The flowers were made using a few scraps of card and the Marianne Design flower set dies. These dies are a bit fiddly but worth the effort, I've also added a gem in the centre of each one.
A little tip is to look out for cheap jewellery in Primark. The gems in the middle of the flowers are from a bracelet I bought there it had 4 rows of gems for £2 and once I took it apart I had tons of bling :-)

Patchwork Cards

I really enjoy making these cards. I have loads of 6 x 6 paper pads with co-ordinating papers and I love piecing together little patchwork backgrounds. I use a fine permanent pen to make the stitches and add a coloured character as the focal image.

My first ever challenge entry!!!

I've never entered any of the BLOG challenges before but had my box of Lili of the Valley die cut squares out so thought I'd enter their Romance challenge this week with this card.

It's been a long time!!

Well as it says in the title it's been a long time. Like so many other people I never seem to have the time to BLOG but I've been making a few new cards recently and thought I may as well share.

Had a lovely trip to The Glitter Pot with a friend last week and bought this lovely Echo Park paper which goes brilliantly with this Lili Of The Valley stamp. Image is coloured using a mixture of Promarkers and Copics.
