A pair of Pears

Hi Again
I have made this card  for the  Simply Stampin' Challenge Perfect pairs. I thought I would play along

Spring Time

Hi All
Wow! I have had a really busy week. It's been good to get back in my craft room. I made this last night. The Digi is from Inklined. I love the simplicity of it and needed cheering up what with all the rain that we have been having. I have used promarkers, spellbinders and the words are an elusive image stamp. The backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's RHS cd rom and distress ink is scattered straw. Ribbon and gems from my stash Thanks for looking and pop back soon.I am entering this card into the PanPastel® UK Challenge Blog

kanban Lady

  I made this card with Kanban stamps and spiral flowers. Spellbinder dies, leaf, circles. Tim Holtz distress inks, black soot ,worn lipstick and alterations filmstrip frames. promarkers to colour in and black gems. Thanks for dropping by.

I looked at my blog this morning and decided my photo's weren't great, I also wanted the writing on my cards. ( I have since found out that it is called watermark!!! ). Having asked Sue My stamp'in up demonstrator. I also bought a camera a nice little purple one with the guidance of a very helpful shop assistant.( I didn't have a clue what to buy!!!). So I came home charged it up took some photo's got the watermark programme and the results are above..I would also like to thank my friend ellapu for her help and guidance in setting up this blog
 I learnt how to make a stationary box at a recent Stamp'in up class, since then I have made quite a few. The  papers and embellies are from from craftwork cards.

Phew!! finally got this finished. I used a Martha Stewart round the page punch, a corner stamp and text stamp. Indigoblu's flitterglu to stamp with, added silver flake to the corner, glitter to the text. I printed the text on word , foiled and cut out with a heart die then embossed the hearts with a stampin up folder added embellsments from my stash. 

 A friend asked me to make some thing special for her Grandaughter's wedding. I have had this Arty Farty template for a while and thought i'd give it a go. I am really pleased with the result.  I used centura pearl card, mulberry flowers from my stash, a cuttlebug heart die, embossing folder and the bow came from Hobbycraft. I am off now to make a card to go with this and will post when done.  

I made this card a couple of years ago now using Sleek design stamps. I used promarkers to colour in the owl black gems for the eyes and then decoupaged. I like to create dimension on my cards. Hope you like it?
