Singing in the rain

Here is another challenge card for Less is More who are 'singing in the rain'.

I love these wellington boots stamp. The umbrella I have on the card is one I just made up with wire for the handle.
It is a simple card but my style.

Happy Crafting.

Let's Surf!!!!!

Well where has the time gone?
I have been doing a few crafty things which I will pop up on the blog soon.

But for now here is a card for Daring Cardmakers where they are asking you to be 'out on the water'

I stamped the surf board, shorts and flip flops. These were cut out and coloured. The water and the sand have been torn from blue and yellow card.

It's been a few days since I have blogged.
I bought though that I would just pop a post on here to say that I am so excited about something that I have wanted to do for many years and just not had the right tools or should I say help to do it.
As some of you may well know my partner David designs and illustrates. He has had some lovely images he has drawn up that I fell in love with and printed out as a digi stamp. I do like digi stamps but am more of a hand stamp person so I can layer, mask and just generally place the image and wording where I want it.
Well i can now do that as David's images are being made into stamps by me.. yes I can now make the stamps.

Here is a photo of worded and image stamps that have been made.

Butterfly Love Card

Well hello again. Two post in one day.
The card I am about to show covers 5 challenges. I have been so busy with bits and time has flown by. To cover so many challenges is not really my thing so I am sorry about that.

Papertake Weekly says anything goes (with a christmas optional if you want).

Daring Card Makers are asking you not to use scissors please.

Less is More requires you to use something recycled on your creation.

Clean n Simple have a fab sketch for you to use.

AAA Cards have a multi challenge going on over at their blog.

My card has string used from a shop tag, the heart is cut with a die, corrugated butterflies, the sentiment is stamped onto the acetate (plastic)

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge and Design Team Member

Has it really been over a week since I popped over here? Doesn't time fly especially with this fab weather we are having.
Anyway on to todays news and challenge.

I have been ever so lucky to be asked onto the design team for Crafts Galore Encore Challenge along with 3 other fab ladies.


The challenge over there this month is use a Stamp on your project. This can be either Stamped or Digi Image.
There is a fab prize as well, $15 to spend in the shop of 

 Fred, She Said Designs

The set of Digi Stamps that I played with on my card is the Marigolds and Morpho Set
Lovely set to play with and this is how I made my card.

The marigolds were coloured with copic pens and cut out with glossy accent in the middle.
The butterflies were also coloured in the pens and I made one smaller to fit in the larger one. Edged both with dazzling diamonds glitter. This set comes with some sentiments as well.
