Lili of the Valley Christening Card

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a commissioned card I made a friend. I used the lovely Christening stamp by Lili of the Valley and used various dies and papers to create a soft and pretty card.
 


I used Pro-markers and layered the different papers to create texture. To finish I used a Wink of Stella pen and some gems for the flowers.

Sketch Challenge DT Card using A Day For Daisies Digi Stamp

Morning Everyone!
 
Today I bring you my Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog DT card. The challenge this week is to create a card from the challenge sketch. The digi stamp I used is from A Day For Daisies and is called Water Baby Nap. Such a cute image and makes me think back to when my Little Girl was a baby.  Here is my card . . .   



This is the Sketch:


I used Distress inks to create the background, with water and white acrylic flicked on to create bubbles. I coloured the image with Pro-Markers to match my distress ink and backing card and used mini pearls and a white pen for extra detail. To finish I added a stamped and die cut greeting with some ribbon.

I have entered my card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 439 Kiddies/Babies
Crafts Galore Encore - Use a digi stamp for August
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes Aug Challenge
Little Miss Muffet - Anything Goes (Ends thur 25th)

I used different papers to create texture and colour with black gems for the fish eyes.

Design Team News and card using Morgan's ArtWorld Digi Stamp

Good Morning to you All!
 
So here's my news update - the LC Design's DT was disbanded :( and I am now on another Design Team! 
Proudly announcing that I now design for the Glitter 'N' Sparkle Challenge Blog. I will be working with many awesome digi stamp companies and the first digi stamp is from Morgan's ArtWorld called Cameo 13, such a fab image. The challenge theme is Anything Goes, here is my card . . .
  


I used Pro-Markers to match my backing papers and a gold pen for extra detail. I decided soft colours and lace would make a statement against the bold mint green, with die cut "hello" and feathers to tie in the image.

Mama Elephant - Bear Hugs Anniversary Card

Hello Everyone!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made for my parents anniversary. I used distress inks and water to create the galaxy / night time starry background and the Bear Hugs stamps from Mama Elephant for the stamped image.
 

I love blending inks and using a toothbrush to flick water onto the card to make a night sky - so much fun and a really pretty way to make your own background papers. I also Spritzed the background in a shimmery silver to make it more magical. To finish I added die cut and stamped letters, the cute bears and the little moon - tied to the letters with cotton.

I have entered this card in the following challenges : 
Crafts Galore Encore - Use a stamp for August
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes Aug Challenge
613 Avenue Create - Aug Challenge Anything Goes

"Mum" Watering Can Birthday Card using Craftwork Cards kit

Good Morning to you All!
 
Here is a card I designed using papers and embellishments from the Potting Shed range from Craftwork Cards.
 

I used Distress Ink round the edges to soften the images and papers and added die cut letters, flowers and pearls for extra details. Love the toppers in this kit, brilliant for garden themed cards.
