The Sugar Bowl 118 #2

Thought I had better get this card posted. I've missed the Remembrance Challenges that it was originally made for. But hey - I can still enter her into the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. It's a nice and easy Anything goes challenge. I have used a Gorgeous Girl stamp. Coloured with Polychromos and blended with Sansador with paper stumps. A couple bits of washi tape and a few sequins. Even more simple than my usual style.

High Hopes #245

As I won the challenge over at High Hopes the other week, I was asked if I wanted to be a Guest this week. Er, of course. They have a photo inspiration this week. I went with the colours, but still kept it a winter card. I am going back to my older stamps now that my colouring is improving, and I am loving them even more. This stamp is called Birdies Friend Snowlady. OK, so I have so many new images to play with, but I guess it just has to be done. The papers are Papermania (from last year I think). The Holly die is Spellbinders and I printed out the text.

High Hopes #243

I've had this High Hopes image coloured up forever. I think it has been coloured using watercolour pencils (cheap one from the supermarket). and I haven't used them for a while. So I thought if I didn't get it on a card then it probably never will make it. I still love this stamp. I'm still trying to use up my papers - not that that is gonna happen any time soon. I thin these were a freebie with a magazine. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. The snowflakes are X cut, with a wee button added to the larger one. The theme over at the High Hopes Challenge is button up - use at least one button. So I think that covers that one.

Papertake Weekly

Still in Christmas card mode. I bought this Magnolia stamp recently from Bunny Zoes (can't link just yet, as my internet seems to be playing up). I just had to use her before putting her away in a drawer. So here she is. I have followed sketch 95 from Papertake Weekly. I so need sketches at the moment. The papers are proper papers (not digital) and are by Dovecraft. The backing card is actually dark green, but my great photography skills aren't showing it. The snowflake is a Whimsy die and the sentiment is Crafty Impressions.

The Sugar Bowl 118

I'm now on Christmas card mode. And I couldn't resist using this All Dressed up stamp that is exclusive to Funky Kits. Isn't she adorable. I don't think she is actually a Christmas image, but think she works just fine. The papers are from Michele R Designs - Santa's coming. I've only just started using papers from Michele Roo, and boy, I'm lovin them, especially this set. Not much to say about this card really, nice and simple. The poinsettia die is Marianne design, the snowflake a punch from Hobbycraft and the dies square is Lil' inker. the othe dies are MFT. I printed the sentiment out, made up several to use on my Christmas cards. I am entering this card into the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl where the theme is anything goes.
