Pretty Floral


It's time for the new monthly challenge at Crafting with an Attitude.

 The theme as always is anything Goes.

I've used an image from Whimsy Stamps called Sweet Blossoms.


I've added lots of embellishments to this card including flowers, die cut leaves and scrolls, a piece of lace and a bow. It's such a cute girly image I thought it had to have lots of pretty bits.

Icecream


It's new challenge time at Make my Monday.

The theme this time is Icecream.

I have decided I would use an icecream for my Inspiration card and this image is from Polkadoodles called Icecream/Popsicle


I have coloured this with Polychromo pencils. I have cut out the image then cut a second and decoupaged it. The background paper has been made using an inked embossing folder. There is lots of die cutting on this card for the layers behind the image and the corner. The sentiment is stamped and layered onto card with a punched border.

Gifted with Love


Finally my inspiration for the new challenge at

We have no sponsor this month so I've gone back in time a little and used an old Magnolia stamp. I still love these designs but don't get chance to use them much. I have used a 8x8 background paper from First Editions paper pad called Spring Feast.


I have coloured the Tilda image and her parcels with alcohol pens. I have then cut her out and sat her on her lovely gifts. I have then die cut and distressed some layers, added some lace and a bow. The sentiment is stamped on a pinched circle tag and placed on top of a small doily die cut. I have put tiny pearls on the patterned paper to highlight some of the pattern.
