Love Ya

I made this one with one of the Lizzie Anne Designs stamps I won for the flutter and flourish copycatcards challenge. It is for this week's challenge which was to use hand stitching and red.

I am contemplating snipping a bit off the ribbon at the bottom. Don't know.

Birds and Swirls

I made this card with the Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder that Mum and Dad got me for my birthday. It was for last week's copycatcards challenge, Flutter and Flourish. It won! 2 Lizzie Anne stamps - they're yet to come but I'm looking forward to getting them and having a play :-)

The bird is another one from the Inkadinkado set Birds Galore.

Pink, Purple and Silver

These cards were done for the copycatcards challenge this week, to use pink, purple and silver. I decided to make birthday cards for Anna and Sophie (Martin's nieces) because I thought they would be colours little girls like.

I've made these months ahead of time (over 5 months early), but I had the idea and wanted to do them now so I did. :-)

I used my new Spellbinder Nestabilities to cut the scalloped circles out of the foil from a butter container. They're great to use, and don't make the horrible cracking noise the Cuttlebug cutting dies make.

The bird is from Inkadinkado's Birds Galore. I really love those birds.

Happy Mothers Day

Here is the card I made for Mum. It uses Two Scoops paper by Basic Grey and a chipboard heart. The paisley stamped in the background is the one I made from an eraser.

A Card At Last

This is the first card I've made in a while. Working too long in a job I don't like seems to dull my creativity or something. Never mind, only 3 weeks to go.

I used a chipboard flower shape covered it with patterned paper, then stamped one of the birds from Inkadinkado's Birds Galore set and clear embossed it. I added some white highlights with a white pen. The 'B' of the best wishes is printed from the computer and coated in Dimensional Magic.

The rhinestones I added were inspired by this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge, Gems and Jewels.
