Messy Rabbit

I had fun making this quick card, I was sorting through my stash ans found the orange gingham.  Orange is not a colour I use often but this card just popped into my head.

I used Lyra crayons to colour Messy and I am very  pleased how my colouring is improving, I may even treat myself to a larger set of the Lyra’s soon.  I only have the starter set of 12 colours.

Windmill Reflection

Posted in Rubber Stamping tagged , , at 12:10 am by Sue

A slow week card wise.  I suddenly remembered I had not made a present for my son’s teacher.  I always stitch something for their teacher’s at primary school so that took up most of my crafting time.  I did fit in another card last night when I finished stitching Popcorn and made him into an ornament.  Funny my son picked a Popcorn chart maybe it was seeing the Popcorn stamps from Crafter’s Companion..

 

I used to use this Art-Kure stamp a lot not sure why I stopped using it.  I just stamped it and used a water brush to go over the ink on the water part of the image.   You never have to do much to this stamp, it always looks great.

Owl Friends

Posted in Spellbinders tagged , , at 11:19 pm by Sue

I do love black and white and use it a lot.  I used one of the new Shabeabilities pendants from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis.  I can see me using this one a lot it’s great.  Owls are another favourite of mine and these ones look great with their googlie eyes.

Renaissance Hearts

Posted in Spellbinders tagged at 12:55 pm by Sue

I love these new Spellbinder Pendant dies and could not wait until I could order one.  The first one I have is the Renaissance Hearts, I also have the borderbilities to go with this one but not used it yet.

This was a very quick card to make as I just had to try out these dies as soon as I got them.  I added a paper rose to the centre and a large ribbon bow to finish it off.

A new sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here is my card

Oh dear the scan does not look very good, I think I may have to look at using the camera to take photo’s of my cards, not sure why some look alright and other don’t.

I used a Penny Black stamp image stamp coloured with Lyra crayons.  Aspects of Design word sentiment stamp. Nestabilities scalloped ovals and heart die-cut.  Cuttlebug bubble embossing folder.  The flowery paper I inked around the edges lightly using cut and dry foam.

Lavender Fairy

This is the first challenge on the Crafters Companion blog, it is a sketch challenge

Here is the Crafters Companion Blog

Here is the sketch

Here is my card

I turned the sketch onto it’s side as I wanted to use the decoupage Lavender Fairy and she looked better this way.  The purple organza ribbon does not show up very well in the scan.

I used the lavender Fairy and Lavender Fairy backing paper from the Crafters Companion Flower Fairy CD.  I think the butterfly card is from Kanban and the wired dragonfly is from Syntego.
