Stamp Addicts Challenge

For this design I decided to use a Griz bear stamp by Judith, I coloured the image with copic pens. I also used watercolour pens on the basket and flowers stamps that are by Art Impressions. The green card stock is bazzill, pink is DCWV and the patterned paper is from Laura Ashley Contemporary pack. The stamped word Thinking of You is an Ann Griffin stamp and for the final embellishments I applied green ribbon and jelly dots.
Thank you for looking.

Whiff of Joy Challenge

Inside Card

This week's whiff of joy Challenge is a fabulous sketch by Katharina.
It’s my friend’s daughter birthday soon so I thought I would make a card for her and I know she likes the colour pink. So for this design, I was very excited to use my new Willow with flower basket stamp from the spring collection, so I decided to incorporate pink and brown theme. I coloured the images with copic pens, and used glossy accents on top of the butterfly to give it a raised affect, then layered the pink bazzill, brown bazzill bling card stock and patterned paper (coco rings from three bugs in a rug). Then I added paper lace that I coloured to coordinate, and a strip of pink ribbon. Finally I stamped the word birthday girl on the card stock and placed it in a circle tag rim. But I did not stop there, I continued on the inside of the card and decorated it with the bits I had left over.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge 35 Romance

My mum has come to visit me for a few days so it has been hard to find time for making cards. So I decided to encourage her into helping me with this one, she punched out a heart and coloured it only thing is she got carried away I could not stop her from punching lots of hearts. For the rest of the time she just sat and watched me, she was very fascinated in the amount time and effort I put into making a card.
So for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge 35 Romance the design of this card consist of - green and pink bazzill card stock, Bo Bunny striped patterned paper, Penny Black Squeeze ‘till I Squeak stamp, Cart stamp by Art Impressions, red ribbon, red heart brads and buttons, I also used gold hearts and letters peel off stickers.

Thank you for looking.

Whiff of Joy Wednesday Challenge 17

For the Whiff of Joy challenge 17, I decided my design would be a black and white theme using “Melinda Blowing Kisses” stamp. I coloured the stamp with copic pens that coordinated with the design. I started with DCWV black cardstock then patterned paper, added the DCWV scalloped white cardstock and on each semi circle I placed two coloured jelly dots. For the next layer I used a narrow silver swirl decorative sheet, matted and layered text and image with the same cardstock cornered with a decorative punched. Finally I applied two silver peel off corner stickers, and added jelly dots with stickles on to the flower centers.

Thank you for looking.
