Flowers

 

Apologies for the photo distortion. I made and photographed this card quite quickly. There is very little space for me to get in my craft room at the moment as furniture from my bedroom is being stored in there while my bedroom is being decorated.
 I used my new Penny Black stamp called Thanks a bunch which happened to be laying on my table after it had been delivered and not yet put away. I used whatever else came to hand but I did manage to die cut the butterfly and border. I used cabachons, pearls,stickles, an organza bow and sentiment to finish off my card. This is my inspiration card for the Penny Black and More challenge which is still live at the moment. The challenge is to use die cuts and a stamped focal image (no digis) and there is still plenty of time to enter. All the details and are on the PB blog.

Pretty in Pink

 

A pretty cute girly card for inspiration this month. I just love this Penny Black image and decided to use pink as the prominent colour. The challenge at Penny Black and More this month is dies and punches so I used a Tim Holtz medallion die to make make the large flower. I enhanced my card with a few embellishments to finish it off and am pleased with how it turned out.

Penny Black Rise and Shine


For this card  I used a gorgeous Penny Black cling stamp called "rain or shine" which is an all time favourite of mine.

Pink floral


The theme for the Penny Black and More challenge for March is Blossoms and Bows and this is my DT card. I used my new Penny Black slapstick stamp called Botanical Notes. I decided to water colour the image so I could give the flowers and leaves plenty of light and shade areas. I never seem to be able to do that with my Promarkers. I decided not to overdress my card and added minimal embellishments to finish it off.
If you would like to enter the PB challenge pop over to the blog using the link above and check out the details. There are several prizes up for grabs from Sponsors Penny Black, All occasion dies, Crafty ribbons, Sizzix and Marianne designs

Floral card


I bought a pack of lovely shaped cards at Ally Pally last year and this is the first card I have made using one of them. I fell in love with these pretty floral papers with their lovely soft pastel colours and decided they would be perfect for this shaped card. I was so pleased when it was finished as I achieved  this lovely floral garden scene.
I have entered it into the challenges listed below.


Spring


My bright and cheerful card with thoughts of Spring in mind. The papers are by Craftwork cards and I love the mixture of cream, turquoise and shades of red and pink together. I decoupaged the bicycle to give it some depth and added flowers to the centre of the wheels too. The flower, leaves and butterfly dies are Crealies. The little banner finished off the Spring theme.

I have entered it into the challenges listed below.

I had to enter the "Who is Tracy" challenge first as the Mood Board inspired the spring theme for my card.

Flower Basket


I used my favourite colours of Pink and Purple with a touch of Turquoise and two Penny Black stamped images ( Dance, Sing, Love 2695J and A Gift of Flowers 4076k ).  I found some very old purple flowers in my stash and thought it a good idea to use some of them. I used flower trim, diamontes, mini pearls and pearl buttons to finish of my card.
A reminder too that it is half way through the Anything goes challenge at Penny Black and More so there is still plenty of time to enter. Pop over to the blog for all the details and the list of prizes for this month.

Penny Black Sentiment card


Another Penny Black and More challenge and this month the theme is Anything goes but NO DIGIS .  I have used "Garden of Life" (No 4263F) sentiment as the focal point on my card. I don't normally use yellow but I had a free paper pad with this gorgeous floral paper. It helped link the white sentiment with the white flowers on the paper. I added pretty sparkly trim and a strip of pom poms along the bottom. Flowers and a few diamontes finished it off.
There are more inspirational projects from the DT and a list of sponsors and prizes on the Penny Black and More blog. Pop over and check out the rules and the fabulous prizes to be won this month.
