Retro sketch 26

I have used the sketch by Danielle from Retro Sketches, and used papers from Pink Petticoat.  The circles are cut with nesties, and the bowling pins I had to make a template for.  Some wonderful designs made by the design team.  Take a look here. Thanks for looking. :-)

Sweet Summer

Sweet Summer - no, not the UK kind, but the Stampin Up! kind.  This card is for Di's playground snippets (challenge 35) and Stamping 411 (challenge 270).  I have used their sketch, and the stamps and papers are all SU.  More importantly,all the papers were snippets, and even the gems were recycled! x

Less Is More - Theme, Tearing

Hope this card is CAS enough.  The vertical strip is a 'Sue Wilson Special' which I was reminded of on Julia's blog here, to tear up and ink and emboss masking tape. Stamps are TH, and used faded jeans and spiced marmalade distress inks. Check out the Less Is More blog to see what all the Limettes have made of this challenge. x

Sunday Snippets challenge 34

Hi everyone, my card this week shows my snippet flowers and leaves - have at least used up some cream cardstock.  The card has been inked with antique plum, and brad and backing papers are from Stampin Up. All the superb snippet cards can be found here on Di's Pixies Crafty Workshop.  Have a good week.  x

Freshly Made Sketch 48

This sketch is designed by Tui, and this is my take on it.  I have used Portobello Road design papers, and washi tape.  The digi is from Digital Two for Tuesday, and the buttons are from a Marianne die. Thanks for looking. Do call over to the FMS blog for some great inspiration. x

Portobello Road

Two cards which uses up some of my Portobello Road papers, and stamps.  The card on the left was made by my son who was inspired by a card layout in QCME Issue 103, and I made the card on the right, inspired by the card layout of Ruth Southorn in Issue104.  All I have to do now is find a challenge I can enter them into :-) xx

Snippets challenge 33

Yay, at last I have made it to the Snippets challenge over at Di's.  Well, this card was made after seeing the paper folding techniques in this month's Quick Cards mag.  I will also have a go at the wobble cards which Jules has made for her feature in card school, as soon as I find out where all the playground pals have hidden the compasses! (*smile*).  Apart from the card base, all the rest are snippets, and the brad I must have had for about 12 months.  The design papers are double-sided SU!, which I have had for a while now, but nearly finished them off. Happy crafting everyone. xx

Gardner's shelf

Hi everyone, woops, its been a long time since I last posted.  Work has just got in the way I'm afraid.
I made this card using the new colours from Pink Petticoat which Jules kindly told us about on her blog.  This colour is the new Cafe Creme, and I have used a digi stamp from Just Inklined which I coloured with promarkers.  The plant pots are a Sizzix die.
Have fun in the sun everyone! xx
