I've just made ths tiny easel card from my Octagonal Scalloped Nesties and Bazzil card. The tree is a stamp from Crafty Impressions. The leaves are cut with a Cuttlebug die, run through a swirls embossing folder and the versamarked and embossed in gold. I've use Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges of the leaves and all the mats. The sentiment is from a Creative Expressions set of leaf stamps. I've stuck on some crystals and pearls and a glittered flower to finish.

New Baby - LOTV

Two of my husband's colleagues were/are expecting babies and the first, a little boy, has arrived so I made this A4 card from his department. The image is from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers and 'stickled'! It's mounted on my round Nesties. Sweet Baby is an embossing folder from Sizzix which I highlighted with blue shimmer chalk, gems, pearls and diamond stickles. A Craftwork Cards sentiment is mounted on a Nellie Snellen oval and gingham ribbon. The flowers are Cherry Blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves from Martha Stewart.

Truly Scrumptious Challenge No 41 (Blue and Green)

I had to make a card for a friend's birthday which I had missed (what's new!!) so I thought I would make another challenge card. This time I've used a stamped image from a set of stamps I got from QVC. These are foam stamps made by La Blanche. They're white foam and the actual stamp seem like white polymer plastic but they give a lovely impression. I used watercolour paints and glossy accents to colour. I used my new beaded oval nestabilities to mount it and used a blue/green bp (part of the challenge extra) from Brenda Pinnock. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch and the flowers are cherry blossoms and rosebuds from Wild Orchid crafts. I finished it with tiny pearls, a craftwork cards sentiment and stickles glitter.

Here's the card I made for Uma's 30th Birthday. I die cut the 30 on my Cricut and used a flourish stamp from Creative Expressions to embellish it and also gold stickles. The bp is from Dovecraft and I used the same Tilda stamp as the last card with Promarkers. Three Prima flowers and a Craftwork cards sentiment finish it off.

Two Challenges.

Close up of home made flower.

Whoo, hoo, I've posted a challenge card!! Not been here for ages what with holidays and then returning to work. I've made a few cards and have made this one at the weekend.

I made this card for my daughter's friend. The image is a Tilda stamp - coloured with Promarkers. She is sitting on a ribbon in which there's a knot (Truly Scrumptious extra) I used My Mind's Eye pink paper for the bp. The background card is Bazzill card which I've distressed around the edges with a craft knife and then inked with Distress inks - Dusty Concorde and Aged Mahogany. I scored some of the card with the knife and I like the effect the ink has in these cuts. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose in the corner with Martha Stewart punched leaves. I made the flowers on the right hand side using flower shapes which I cut on the Cricut. I inked these with the Distress Inks. I used pearls, stickles and a Cardcraft sentiment to finish. Only thing is it wouldn't go in the envelope!!

I'd like to enter it into two challenges:
