Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

I Wish I Could Fly

So rather than a fairy or an aeroplane which is what I would normally use I've gone for a dragon.... well it has wings and it flies.....

This is a birthday card I made for a friend!

I've just use some distress inks to create a background and stamped some swirls and the sentiment in black. I stamped the stars using London Fog so they were a bit paler. The dragon is a Sweet Dixie die that Scott liked and asked me to buy....


Sentiment - Paper Smooches
Swirls/Stars - can't remember!
Dragon - Sweet Dixie
Numbers - Quickutz

Better Late Than Never

Hello.

For a short week that was quite a long one! 

So I meant to share this the other day but it went completely out of my head.  We went for Easter Sunday dinner to friends and I made an Easter card (late on Saturday night when I decided I needed to!)

I've used a Digi Stamp Boutique image and merged it with another DSB image (the sign, which I've paper pieced and typed in a sentiment).

Can't See Me

Hello.

I've realised how many unshared cards I have. I'm not sure how I've managed to do that, I was clear but somehow they've all built up again!

So here's a card from the tail end of last year which was for one of Scott's friends.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes.

I know it's only April, but I might have found my design of Christmas card! This was so easy. And could be quick. If I started now. But you know me, I won't......

I used Colour Cloud ink to colour the base card and used a new die I got a few weeks ago at Sincerely Yours. Simples.



Sentiment - Just Rite Stamps
Shooting Star - Will check make of die
Colour Cloud Blending Ink

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Mellow Yellow

So lots of yellow on your cards this week please!

This is a card I made for a friend to give her step mum. She asked for yellow roses so I think I fullfilled the brief. Another friend really likes yellow on cards as it's a nice happy colour - I'm not so sure about using it tbh!

Dogs and Books

Hello.

So this is unusual. A non DT blog post and a card that was made recently too!

I made this as a Sorry You're Leaving Card for a friend at work who's last day was today. I do love this wee dog!




Crazy Dog - Tim Holtz
Copics

Also, before I go, yesterday was World Book Day and for the first (and last for us) time ever our school took part. As Scott is off to high school after the summer holidays this is it for us! 

So he's Grandpa from Grandpa's Great Escape by David Walliams. I made his moustache by making a template with the SNC and sticking some natural wool roving on it. His medals were also cut using SNC.
