A Little Bird Told Me .....

.... that this post is number 100 on my blog! I just noticed it when I was altering the blog background - hard to believe that I've made that many posts here.
This is a bird ATC made for one of the Yahoo groups I belong to - it had to include a peel off so I've used some copper lines either side of the image. The bird is stamped - a Snag 'Em image that I thought was just too cute to resist. The background paper is by K&Company and I've added a matching flower.

Spring Flowers Swap Card

This is one of the cards I made over the weekend for a "spring flowers" swap on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. It had to include some Cuttlebugging (the dots folder on the pink card at the top) and of course some spring flowers. The main design is decoupaged and the flower paper came with the pack of decoupage design sheets.

Elzybells ATCs

These three ATCs are made using stamps from the Floral Rectangle set - one of the newer stamp design sheets from Elzybells. They are stamped in black, embossed and then coloured with Promarkers. I stamped the little greetings from the same set and then used a circle punch to cut them out. Finally, I added some black and white ribbon and layered onto pink and then black.

Stitched Easter Card

This is a stitched card I made recently for an Easter themed swap - the greeting is made by Penny Black and I added some daffodil paper and green card to finish it off.

Happy Stampers North West May Festival

I belong to Happy Stampers North West the club that organises the twice yearly stamping festivals at Port Sunlight on the Wirral. The next show is on Saturday 8 May and details of tickets (admission is by ticket only) will appear on the website soon. The club has display boards of members' work in the foyer of Hulme Hall and these are my contributions for this festival. Our theme was "spring wedding" and we had two use two colour palettes. The first one was pink, chocolate brown and gold on ivory card - I've used a stamp from Little Claire Designs and added some paper flowers and gold Nailhead stickers. The second palette was chocolate brown, aqua and gold and for this one I've used some stamps which came free with a magazine.

Happy Mothers Day

This is the card I made for my Mum for Mothers Day. It's based on the current club project from Little Claire Designs - I added some ribbon to the materials we received. The stamp is a camellia and appears on the home page of the site at the moment. I've stamped the whole image and then cut it into four pieces. Then I stamped one flower and overlayed it onto the panel using foam pads.

Anyone for Anya? Challenge - Mum's the Word

And this card is for the Anyone for Anya? Challenge this week which is "Mum's the Word".
The image is (of course!) by the Greetings Farm and the papers are by Doodlebug. I've used my Martha Stewart punch down one of the short sides of the card and added a white peel off greeting onto a punched circle of card and a flower coloured with Promarkers to match the colour of the dress.

Quixotic Challenges #16 - Leave it Out

This card is for the current challenge on the Quixotic Challenges Blog which is called "Leave it Out". The card has to feature leaves in some form.
The image I've used is from Little Claire Designs and the backing paper is from Doodlebug. I've coloured a paper flower to match the hedgehogs' boots and added a piece of pink ribbon.

Another Little Claire Class - Card Two

And this one is an easel card made using a stamp called Dale's Bear - the border punch is made by EK Success and the cupcake is punched from a Martha Stewart punch.

I've been to another class run by Little Claire Designs today and these are two of the cards we made.
The first is a tent card made with one of their cute cat stamps. It's backed on a lilac scalloped shape and then blue card and finishes with beautiful blue and white swirled ribbon.

Anyone for Anya? Sketch #7

This week's challenge on Anyone for Anya? is a sketch and here is my card. The image is of course from The Greetings Farm and the papers are by Doodlebug. I've added a couple of flowers, some pink nail heads and a back sticker greeting to finish the card.

Bird ATCs

These ATCs are for a themed swap in one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. The stamp is one of the cover mounts from Craft Stamper and I've used pieces of paper left over from larger sheets, edged with brown ink and stamped the words on strips of card.
