Sarah Kay

I just love Sarah Kay stamps and have just treated myself to 2 stamps after borrowing my good friend Fleurs. I thought I may enter it at Sir Stampalot not sure yet as I really like it!!

I used:

  • My minds eye Wild Asparagus Flourish stamp
  • Sarah Kay - Rose's Garden
  • Crate paper- Sweet branch collection - Shine (light blue paper)- Hope (green paper) - Blossom (patterened paper)
  • Light Blue flower brad & button were from own stash
  • Martha Stewart Edge punch doliy lace
  • Watercolour pencils to colour image
  • Colourbox chalk inkpad - dark brown (to edge papers)
  • Sweet branch rub on - Word "Sweet"

Happy crafting - Nicola

Bits & Bobs

This card was made up of bits of scrap paper & a stamp image that I stamped last week. I just can't throw out scrap bits of paper!!!

  • Magnolia stamp - summery tilda
  • My minds eye paper - bloom & grow
  • My minds eye flourish stamp ( hard to see on image but it is in the orange space coming off the flower.)
    Another one to follow shortly. Nicola xxx

Minkies Paper Paradise

Just discovered this site & they have some great blog candy!! Have a look don't just take my word for it. ( ) Nicola x

A little bit of Autum!!

Yes I know it isn't autumn but I love these colours so thought I would have a go. Plus I needed to have a go with my new Martha Stewart punch- which I purchased at Sir Stampalot after Chris did a demo with it. (I fell in love with it along with Fleur & Avril who also brought one at the same time)
I used:
  • My Minds eye bloom & grow paper
  • Martha Stewart Edge punch doily lace
  • Magnolia stamp - Summertime Tilda with bow
  • Woodware circular greetings clear stamps - Birthday & Wishes
  • My Minds eye clear stamps Wild Asparagus - Banner & Flourish
  • Homemade flower & added a button

I like this one as it not normally the colours I would use but the paper inspired the colouring in of Tilda. Nicola xXx

Card for the Father in Law

I find it hard to make cards for men so this one was a challenge.

I used
a stampin up stamp for the image & the wording
Stampin up ribbon
Crafty paper
Watercolour pencils & blending pen to colour in image
Hopefully he likes it ..... I am quite pleased with the finished card.
