This is Christine's 2nd DT card and I'm sure you'll agree it's a beauty! The red flower contrasts beautifully with the black and white background.I really love those Nesties..

I've used "Bunny Bathtime" A Passion for Stamps
The beautiful striped paper is DCWV/Rose Tinted Christmas and the pink paper has been run through the Cuttlebug with a D'vine Swirls folder.
The ribbon is Colour Collection,gems from Jewellery seal,flowers Xcut and woodware punches and the photo corner is DCWV Alphabet.
I've added extra bling by using glitter on the bubbles.

New DT Member!!!


Good evening! I'm really delighted to tell you that Christine has agreed to be on my Design team.I've been a follower of her blog for a while and couldn't help but notice that her cards just get better and better! She has her own unique style but a great range of techniques so I decided to ask her aboard A Passion for Stamps.
Her 1st DT card is fantastic,using my "kitten at wall" stamp and monochrome colours.I'm really impressed by the colouring!
I'm sure this is the 1st of many great cards!!

Tara's Card


Tara has created another gem of a card this week,this time using two stamps from A Passion for Stamps ...."Jonny" and "Andrea".
I love the way she has used the top of the two stamps and the beautiful ticket sentiment.
Seeing this card just makes me so happy to have Tara on my Design Team.

I have another new DT member to introduce to you soon,so keep an eye on the blog for more fantastic cards!!

Basic Grey Guest DT card


I'm really chuffed to be joining the wonderful DT of Basic Grey Challenges as a guest designer for the month of October! That means that I'll be making 3 cards for them!!
The first follows the super sketch by Martine and I used it to make a Wedding Anniversary card for my brother to give to his wife.
I've used gorgeous pink and lime Basic Grey (!) paper teamed up with pink DP from Papermania's Blueberry Hill.
The image is "Orchid" from my own range A Passion for Stamps (found in the sidebar) and is coloured with Promarkers.I know I always use Promarkers but I really love them and the different shades you can get by shading.
I got a new Cuttlebug embossing folder and as it has hearts on it, I just had to use it for this one.
I've also used my Dovecraft heart border punch along the bottom of the computer generated sentiment and added some flat backed pearls.
The two little X's at the top are actually made with a miniature alphabet punch set which I bought ages ago in Banana Bookshop.
Well,that's one down and two to go!!
I feel like starting the next card now!!
See you soon,Ruth

Crafty Calendar Challenges DT card



This is my first DT card for Crafty Calendar Challenges and I'm very happy to be a part of the action!
This new challenge starts today and runs on the 1st Friday of each month with a new challenge based on the month's theme. This month's theme is "Autumn" with the optional extra of adding vegetation or plants.
As it is my Mum's birthday I thought I'd make the DT card for this event!
I hand cut the letter templates on papers from My Mind's Eye..(they are just fantastic for Autumn) and popped them up on foam pads.

The stamp is from my own range A Passion for Stamps and is called "Kitten at wall" but actually he can be "kitten at 'anything you like!'

The colouring is done with Promarkers and I've used various Woodware punches for Flowers,leaves butterflies etc. The fronds were sent to me by Tara and I didn't really want to part with them but the card IS for my mum!
I'm also entering this card for the Allsorts challenge as it fits in with their "Autumn Days" theme this week,too.
Please do join us at Crafty Calendar Challenges as we'd love to see your creations!
