Happy Birthday Lisa

It was my good friend Lisa's Birthday this week and I know how much she loves her Stampotique stamps, so using images I'd stamped at hers I made this for her....

It's a gate fold card and the little cat's head holds it closed. I have made the backing card by spraying Golden Fish and Meadow Lush cosmic shimmer mists. Anyone that knows me knows that my 2 favourite colours are orange and green and I can never resist using them together. As I have used only the 2 colours here I'm going to enter it into the Stamp Man's challenge #2 Take 2 colours.
Thanks for looking.

You make me smile ATC

I made this for a hosted swap over on Docrafts, it was supposed to be a RAK for the hostess but got sent out as a swap so I had to make her another RAK.

I stamped the background stamp with a Big & Juicy pad  then washed over it with a wet brush to give the muted colours. I then over-stamped with stamps from the v2 flourishes by Autumn Leaves.

Thanks for looking :)

Black & White and 1 other colour

I liked the challenge over at Sweat Pea Stampers this week and of course I had to use one of my favourite colours as the one other colour. Here's the card I am entering...

Easel cards

I tried making easel cards for the first time this week and made 9 thank you cards for school. I shall enter this one into the spotlight challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers The image is a Penny Black stamp called Buzz in the air and I coloured it in using copics. The flowers are Flora Doodles by Petaloo. 

Here are some of the other cards I made...

Lavender and Lime

I've been very busy this week making thank you cards for the teachers. This is the first one I made and I will be entering this into the challenge over at Inkurable Stampers as their challenge this month is Lavender and Lime. The image is a cute one from Penny Black called arrangement and is coloured using copics, with impress ink sponged around the edges. I added punched flowers using a woodware daisy punch and an Xcut embossing punch.

Thanks for looking :)

Flower ATC

For me summer time means flowers and the brighter the better. I love all those reds, oranges and yellows contrasting beautifully with the greens. Here's an ATC I made for a swap over at Docrafts. I've used a pressed and dried flower and leaf so it will certainly be treasured forever.

I am going to enter it into Sir Stampalot July challenge - Lazy Hazy Days of Summer
also at Papertake Weekly - In the garden Challenge
and at Fun with ATCs - Flowers

Thanks for looking,

Tha Stamp Man swap - wings


Seems such a long time since I've posted on here, it's fast approaching end of term and I don't seem to have much spare time, we had 3 fantastic reports for our children and a great parents evening last night with two more tomorrow. I finally got round to backing up my swaps and here are 2 more I will be sending off for the Stamp Man swap this month (I'll send the last card Big Birds too)
