The prompt for week 14 was to use a sketch for our cards – see here.
As usual, it was more inspired by rather than following the sketch completely, but I made a card (eventually!) and that’s what matters!
Papers are from My Minds Eye On the Bright Side 6×6 pad, die cuts all cut on the Cameo, designs from the Silhouette store. Sentiment stamp from Waltzingmouse’s Compact Sentiment’s set – definately my new “go to” set, I love it!
I had to hang on to post this as it was for my Mum’s birthday, but as she has now had the card ( a couple of days early, but she said it was her official birthday today so I think that makes it OK ) I can post, just in time to make me up to date before the new challenge is posted tomorrow!
The challenge for week 13 was to use lace or doilies (or both!) on your card.
I used some My Minds Eye papers from the Howdy Doody 6×6 pad, Waltzingmouse stamps Nordic Spring and Compact Sentiments, and layered the kraft circle on top of a doily to give it a little frilly edge. I finished off with a coat of Mr Huey’s Calico Shine which gives a lovely pearlised effect to the card.
Bunting, banners, pennants and flags
Ooh, I do love a nice bit of bunting, lol, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to use this paper from one of my Kraft Funday 6×6 pads that I got for Christmas. The flags are from a Waltzingmouse stamp set (Bitty Banners), stamped in white chalk ink on kraft card and then attached to the seam binding with little staples.
It’s the 17th of the month so it must be time for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party! It feels like forever since I have managed to join in with the monthly blog hop although it’s probably just a few months
I cut the fancy envelope on my Cameo, using a design from the Silhouette store and a little die cut and flower for the closer.
Thanks for visiting – and also, scuse the rubbish photo’s! *note to self, go and retrieve the big camera from downstairs instead of just using your iPhone! I promise I will replace the photo’s with better one’s when I have chance!
Edited to add – have now managed to get my act together and take better photo’s!
I’ve got some Christmas cards to share with you over the next few days – just trying out a few different things! On this one I used papers from the Authentique Wonder 6×6 pad, Seasonal Remedy and Holiday Labels 14 stamps by Waltzingmouse. Finished off with a little machine stitching around the edges and some buttons and button twine.
Well it’s that time of year again! Yep, pull out the sparkly, glittery, blingy embellishments – it’s Christmas card time! I was eagerly awaiting the release of the latest Waltzingmouse stamps and I love these two sets, Nordic Winter and Seasonal Remedies. I used lots of distress stickles on here too although it doesn’t photograph very well!
I followed a link to the I Love Promarkers blog a few days and found a whole blog full of inspiration! I thought I would have a go at the latest weekly challenge which is to make an easel card, using ProMarkers of course! I used this image of a cute little fella in the bath from Mo Manning’s Digital Pencil Too and coloured him with my ProMarkers.
