autumn colours.....

something a bit different to the usual girly colours I tend to go for - took a bit of doing this one though cos I coloured the images and started putting the card together and hubby decided the backings i was planning on using didn't work..... so it got me rethinking and printing out different backings till I found something that worked lol - but I got there in the end :-) The flower isn't as orange as it looks lol - its crocheted in a variegated thread so is more golden shades and cream like the ribbon

My new stamp

well, it seems to be a heck of a long time since I made a 'stamped' card thats not coloured.... so was a little out of practise and not sure how this one would turn out. I bought the stamp from Mandy who's on a forum with me - her online store Sparklybits is like aladdin's cave lol - there's so much to choose from, prices are great and delivery is so fast!

I stamped the image onto plain white cardstock with black stazon, matted and layered black & white circles, edged with silver peeloffs, mounted onto black - didn't have a matching backing so stamped the tree randomly in black and silver onto white paper and used to back - finished the whole thing off with some peeloffs and crystal type stars - then covered the tree with 3d glaze which gives it an enamelled effect

2 cards I made

Taken a while but finally got something put together at last :-) Wasn't too sure about them - especially as the pics aren't great - but hey ho, can't get it right every time - I'm sure they'll grow on me lol All the backings are ones I printed off from free downloads (my favourite word - 'free') Images are all coloured with prismas and covered with a 3d glaze, fibres and gems from stash - the one on tilda's bow is pink but the scanner didn't like it :-(, the black flowers on the halloween card were taken off a length of white ribbon - I tried drawing a spider's web and smudged it lolol so covered the mistake with flowers!!

10 minute warning!!!!

My darling daughter decided to tell me 10 mins before they were due out to school that it's her teacher's birthday today and she wanted a card for her!!! I had some images coloured already so just 'threw' something together quickly - just hope her teacher likes it!!! maybe next time she'll give me 15 mins then I can add some embellishments lololol
Image is one of the Tilda Pink Ribbons (but wanted a change from pink lol), coloured with prismas and coated with a 3d gloss, embossed card was sent to me by a friend with a cuttlebug, paper and sentiment sticker from my stash

Alisha's birthday card

This is the card I made for my daughter's 6th birthday - it was a quick one cos didn't have much time - I wasn't too sure about it but seeing as it was nearly midnight and had to get up early for college I had to leave it as it was - but Alisha was pleased - she loved it cos its pink and has fairies!!!
Papers are the dovecraft fantasy, image was one I received from a friend and ribbon and flowers from stash :-)
