Have you ever.......


Have you ever wondered if competitions are worth bothering to enter as you never seem to find out who actually won them? Well I can tell you it is worth bothering as I have just received a box full of amazing Stampin Up craft goodies shown above.
I want to thank the lovely Leigh Armstrong  www.leigharmstrong.stampinup.net (Stampin Up Demonstrator) at www.magickminxproductions.com for this amazing gift. My friends and I will have hours of fun creating with them

Dressing Up


I haven't used this Penny Black image for a long while and she is so cute. Many of us will recall dressing up and having fun clip clopping around in high heeled shoes. This image reminds me of those times so this card is to celebrate childhood fun which sadly many children miss out on these days.
This bright and cheerful card is for this month's challenge at Penny Black and More which is Dies and Punches.
There are several prizes up for grabs and the sponsors are Penny Black, FlonzCraft, Nicecrane, Marianne Designs and Craft Bag. If you want to be in with a chance of winning something crafty pop over to the PB blog to check out the details.
I used Marianne flower dies and a Fiskars  floral border punch. The flowers dies have been gathering dust for years and the pretty floral punched shape is from a set of three dies which I used for the first time although I have had them a while.

Carte postal vintage


I found the cute girly image on Pinterest. When I spotted her I thought she would work beautifully with this gorgeous Craftwork cards summery papers as the colouring was very similar. I used a Crealies die  to make the gorgeous flowers and a Marianne die for the flourishes. I hand cut the butterflies from CC paper. I matched up some vintage lace and added pearls to finish it off. I really like the way it has turned out.

Friend's card


I was invited to be a guest designer for Lexi's Creation and the challenge theme this week is friends. I chose to use the lovely friends digi sentiment and the papers are from Craftwork Cards and come from their Botanica collection. The paper is silver foiled in places and is just beautiful. It's a shame it has not shown on the card as it was a dull and dreary day when I took the pic. I cut out the birds and butterflies from other sheets in the collection and added foam pads to give some dimension. They were very fiddly but luckily I have the most tiniest and sharpest pointed scissors that I invested in over 10 yrs ago. They cost me £10 at the time, and are still going strong and worth every penny. A few pearls and bows finished my card off and it looks very elegant in real life.
I have entered my card into a few challenges listed below.

Penny Black Best Wishes card


For the month of May the challenge at Penny Black and More is Favourite stamp or craft item. We all have favourites so you can easily join in with the challenge this month. There is plenty of inspiration from the design team too. Pop over to the blog for the rules and info on the prizes.
I really struggled to choose an outright favourite so I used all my favourites on this card. I love ribbons and turquoise and lilac shades are my most favourite colours because they seem to coordinate with many other colours. The image I used if one of my top favourite from the Betsy Bluebell range which I coloured with Promarkers. I have used her on multiple cards as she is so versatile and I can attach many different sentiments to the bouquet to suit all occasions.The flowers are die cut from CREAlies dies which are my favourite too. The gorgeous buttons are from Stampin Up and I made my ribbon bows from Sheer ribbon by Craftwork Cards. The butterflies are just the right size to decorate my card and they are by FlonzCraft.

I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

Crealies GT project 4


This is my fourth and last GD project for the CREAlies blog. I have enjoyed using the CREAlies dies and shall continue to do so as I have become a big fan of the flower dies in particular.
I went to town with the flowers on this card and made them into a bouquet. I find they give a very striking effect left white with just a touch of colour added and this is what I did on my card. The designer papers and image were quite bold so the white flowers and butterflies worked well with my layout. You will see a lovely white shaped top above my image and that was made by using  a part of one of the nesting dies listed below.
If you are a Pinterest fan like me, pop over to CREAlies on Pinterest here for oodles of inspiration and information.
