Stamping sensations



*** One for The Boys ***

                                                               (stamping sensation)

   I had to make a birthday card for a friend of ours and found it a bit challenging so fell back on a favourite  technique of mine ...two colours one image !.
As our friend is an avid football fan made it in his teams colours .For the life of me can't remember who makes the image but know its from a set! and the sentiment is an Altenew one
.
Thanks for taking the time to look

Cupcake Inspirations 376



I always seem to do the same challenges every time so this week I headed over to the paper playful  site that has a list of challenges for every day of the week and all styles, and found the 
Cupcake Inspirations  challenge which had the above inspiration photo .
I really wanted to work on my watercolouring as I am pretty dire at it so thought I would give it a go with a SSS set and some MFT ink pads to make the colours deeper 
.
As you can see the watercolouring is still a work in progress !!
 Thanks for taking the time to look !

Muse DT 184


Hi there can't believe that this week is Muse's 184th challenge!!!

I had made two cards for the  Altenew challenge and decided to keep this watercolour wonder one for this weeks challenge.

I used versamagic sea breeze  ink to make the flower I thought that I wouldn't see the markings( and would have to do second generation stamping )  just using the same in on top again but it worked beautifully and stood out perfectly !!! and I even managed to shade it around the matting paper using my distress tool.

The leaves are Memento bamboo ink and the sentiment is from Altenew too.

 A few of you have being asking me whereIi get my linen card from and just wanted to say that I get it from my local paper mill where the sell off their excess in a onsite craft shop .This linen card is meant to be for weddings but I love it for all of my special projects !!.

I do hope you will join us this week and can't wait to see your  creations in the gallery!
Many thanks for taking the time to look

Sevenhills Craft Challenge




I thought I would also join in with this months fun challenge over at Seven hills Craft Challenge where they have given us this great layout!
I struggled at first but then I used Lawn fawns Lets Bokeh set for the circles (or portholes!)and the sentiment and checked with the rules and I think Im ok to use clearly besotted robots for the centres.... is that right Tara??? they fitted so perfectly!
I then coloured them with promarkers and flexmarkers and added the dotted background in what I hope looks like party confetti! 

Thank you for taking the time to look

We have a fun challenge this week as well as our usual Monday one as you can see from the graphics above we are joining in with other challenges to take part in  a fun challenge with Altenew !!! ..it even includes prizes so why don't you come have a peek and maybe join in???
I used Altnews say cheese stamp set as I thought it would  work well for a male anniversary card and must say have had it a while but never inked it up but boy is it easy to use.... love it !
The camera is a 3 - step stamp but so easy to line up and as you see I actually made two cards !
Hope to see you in the gallery

MCV 61







I haven't joined in for a while over at MCV, but this week I managed to get a card done .
I loved the modern look of Kimberley's card so I kinda kept to the colours and the used the wreath and bow as inspiration ( mine is W9) I diecut the wreath out twice to make it pop out a bit more ,and for the sparkle I used some red stickles.
Even with missing a few weeks I have already got half my Christmas cards made one job nearly ticked off!
Thanks for taking the time to look

Muse DT



Can't believe that the school holidays are over already where did the six weeks go !
But never mind at least when this posts over at Muse I will have done my first morning in and only another 8 weeks to go before the next holidays  :)
Again I used  a linen look card because when you use such a small image it fills in the white space and  I feel that it makes your  image pop more .
I punched the candles out and diecut out the square, backed them first with the glittery paper and then with orange card before die cut out another square .finally stamped my sentiment...thank goodness for the mini misti!

This sounds such an EXTREMELY simple card doesn't it?? well it took me 5 goes to do the row of candles evenly spaced out and then it took 4 goes to get the orange of the flames to be all even too !! why ?? I don't know:)

Hoping it will inspire you to join in with us this week ....maybe you'll find your candles will be on a cake or will it be the rainbow colours or the glitter paper ???what ever inspires you I can't wait to see you in the gallery!

P.s and thanks for taking the time to look
