Enjoy Your Day!!



I've used Cored'inations paper and a Cuttlebug folder with a light sanding together with DCWV Retro prints paper.
The image is " Bunny Bathtime" from A Passion for Stamps which you can find in my sidebar.
I have used this stamp lots of times for baby cards but I thought it could also be used for birthday cards/Get Well cards etc.

The paper is Boutique by Jesse Edwards.
The main image is "Morning Glory" from my range - A Passion for Stamps which you can find in the sidebar and I've coloured it with Promarkers.I've added a little flocking powder to the centre of the flower and decoupaged the buds.
The butterfly stamp is "monarch" by Stampendous.
The rich dark brown scallop at the base was sent to me by Tara and is self adhesive.I love the detail on it!

Tara's Cards!!




These gorgeous cards certainly brought a big smile to my face when I saw them!!
I never cease to be amazed at what Tara comes up with!! Aren't they just fantastic?
She has used my "Bunny in the bath" stamp from A Passion for Stamps to create two wonderful baby cards using babygro shaped templates and they do look great!

Until now the "Jonny" and "Andrea" stamps were only available as a set but I have now got them available to buy separately for £4.95 each.

Good morning.
I've actually never entered either of these challenges before but over the weekend I've seen some beautiful cards for both on my blog hopping expedition.
Papertake Weekly Challenge want a card based on the theme "faking it" and Secret Crafter want "one for the girls".
I've made a really girly card with "Jenny in bed" from my Passion for Stamps collection which you can find in the sidebar.Because the clours of Promarkers I've used are so bold I wanted to leave some white showing on the card.
The "fakes" are the Martha Stewart doily border punch(fake lace) and the pearl buttons on Jenny's PJ's.
The little butterfly has been covered with flocking powder.

Jonny and Andrea at Christmas



I got some gorgeous Basic Grey papers today from Martine and couldn't wait to use them for the Basic Grey challenge.The requirements are the use of Basic Grey paper and embossing.I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
It fits in with the Allsorts challenge where they want "snowflakes in September".
I have used "Andrea" and "Jonny" from my own stamp range A Passion for Stamps and coloured them with Promarkers.This time I've added leggings and a couple of bracelets along with a scarf to the Andrea stamp for a change..

Jenny in Bed




This card was made to combine two challenges....Sketch Saturday and a Passion for Promarkers where the challenge this week is to use any colours plus polka dots.
I tried to make this on as bright and cheerful as possible for a Get Well card so I chose papers from Kate Knight's Wild Blossom collection by Dovecraft.
The stamp is "Jenny in Bed" from my own collection A Passion for Stamps, coloured with Promarkers.
I've used an Xcut flower punch and added a touch of glitter to the petals.
The heart border punch is from Dovecrafts and I layered it over green paper to show it off!

I've used the "Orchid" stamp from my newly released A Passion for Stamps range and you can find the details in my sidebar.
I coloured it with Promarkers and used Glossy accents to highlight the stripe on the plant pot.
The papers are Core d'inations (Cuttlebugged) and Jesse Edwards Boutique. The beautiful turquoise flower and the pin were sent to me by Tara and the gems are from my stash.
I've used the Martha Stewart doily border punch on the corners of the image again as I love the lacy effect.

Tara's card


This time Tara has made a beautiful card with my "Kitten at Wall" stamp fromA Passion for Stamps and isn't it just gorgeous?
I think the beauty is in the detail...the little paw prints in the flowers and the way she has stamped the ribbon etc.Poor Tara is not too well at the moment so it is a surprise that she was able to make this at all.
The card has now pride of place on my mantlepiece as she sent it to me ..

Tara's card


Well this one just left me wondering if I should ever make another card.......isn't it gorgeous? This time Tara has used my "Morning Glory" stamp and made a better card with it than I ever could.
I'd never have thought of using black for the flower but it looks great - the petals look like velvet.
This looks great and I'm so chuffed at what she has come up with this time again!!
Those Nesties are fantastic,too and show off the image so well.
