LiM - Theme 321

hi fellow bloggers didn't manage the challenge last week so had to make an effort to get the time this week.  Also I will try to visit this week too.

The theme for this weeks LiM is 3-2-1 and I have gone for 3 flowers of which 2 are brown and 1 is bright yellow. These are all from Petaloo. The sentiment is from Anna Griffin [old set] stamped in cocoa memento and the gold strip is double sided tape foiled with Kanban foil. - think in retrospect that I would have preferred a thinner stripe.

Birthday card - pink profusion!

hi again - trying to get cards made on time! A special friend has her birthday at the end of August and as she is a bit of a fairy fan thought I'd make her a fairy card using the flower fairies stamp, Tricia is a real pink fan so rather than colour the lilac fairy in lilac decided to do her in pink as well as the ribbon and mirri card.
I have used:-
  • spellbinders scalloped square, plain square and persian border
  • silver and cerise mirri card
  • centura pearl white
  • stazon dove grey
  • water colour pencils and sakura gel pens
  • mei craft spotty ribbon
  • anna griffin ribbon border punch
  • debbi moore glitter
  • little ribbon flowers from stash
  • lilac fairy wooden stamp
  • pink gems
  • fusible film - pearl

Sweet Stamping Challenge

hi again fellow bloggers
I have decided to spend more time crafting this weekend and am entering for this weeks SSC for anything with wings. I have chosen a fairy stamp that has also been stamped inside the card as I have used such a pretty  brilliance inkpad. The sentiment is also inside and is "Sending a Smile". The fairy is cut out with a spellbinders circle and matted on two other spellbinders cut outs - a lacey circle and a persian accent. The background paper is from a K&Co stack and the ribbon is lilac organza.

LiM 80

Good morning Saturday bloggers! Another fab challenge from the ladies over at LiM. The theme this week is one layer. I used an Anita's stamp - the cuddly hedgehog and as he seems to have a smile on his face thought that would be the sentiment - another stamp from a tub of messages.. They were both stamped in memento rich cocoa. The half flower/sun is a piece of die waste inked through with colourbox yellow cadmium as it seemed to fit the sentiment. The grounding is adirondack lettuce ink again inked along a piece of waste from using a spellbinders die.

LiM 79

Happy Saturday fellow bloggers - the sun is out and team GB doing great and doing us all so proud.
The theme for this weeks challenge is colour - blue and green.
I have used lime bazill bling for the edges and a martha stewart edger punch. The dots are a from a background stamp by Hero Arts stamped directly on the base card with dark blue brilliance ink [looks darker in real life]. The sentiment and 2 little flowers are from a sticker sheet coloured to match with a promarker.
