the kindness of rainmac

here is a photo of all the stamped images rainmac sent to me as i'm unable to stamp very well at the moment. and the cute little holder as well that they came in. this is just to say a huge


to her for them. and the little t bag holder she sent with the tri fold card swap.

moving along with the times challenge

this i a card i made for the moving along with the times challenge. this time it was a sketch, that i rotated through 90 degrees. there was also an optional theme of flower power. this card is for my niece who bought us a little ornament to remember our trip to see them. the card is from a christmas pack, i dry embossed this using fiskars texturising plates. the green card is coredinations. the brads are from paperchase. the stamp is from the daisy and dandelion range. i stamped it brown and clear embossed it. i then chalked red into the flower and heart and also used green chalk around the edge. the letters are some foam letters i think from papermania.

random challenge card

this card was made for a challenge but then my computer crashed and i now can't remeber the name of the blog! it is also for my friend as a new home card.
the gold card is from a set i bought for christmas. the brown papers are from claire curds papers. the flower i coloured brown to match. the pale card is packaging from daisy and dandelion. i hated making his card but wantedit to coordinate with their living room which is brown. it turns out i don't have much brown in my supplies- so it's on the shopping list for harrogate craft show!

inspirational card sketches challenge

here is a card i made for inspirational card sketches. sorry about the flash reflecting off the mirri board!
The backing paper is from DCWV's rose tinted christmas multistack. the mirri board came in a docrafts goody bag along with the pink card ( i wish i know what that was!). the red card is just some i had in. the greeting is a £1 stamp from the range stamped in silver and then glitter embossed. the gingerbread men were stamped by my husband for me in brown and then clear embossed and cut out. i then added some red glitter to their buttons.

friday sketchers challenge

here is my card for this weeks friday sketchers challenge. i love this stamp (daisy and dandelion, free with creativity magazine) and shouldn't be stamping but did it anyway (my shoulder regrets it now) and i love it! i coloured it in using watercolour pencil crayons, cut it out using my 1 sized circle cutter (need to do something about this) then i chalked the edges with red. the papers are from the daisy and dandelion christmas pack, as is the greeting. the gold card is just some i had in. the brads are from dovecraft

i have only just started using brads but now love them!

a spoonful of sugar and crafty place challenge

here is my card for this weeks a spoon ful of sugar challenge sketch and for craftyplace's christmas card not using red, green or gold!

i have used 2 papers from anita's classic christmas blue papers, and backed the smaller piece onto tranquil blue coredinations. i then cut out a white card circle and added a silver peel off tree. i then edged the circle in silver ink. i have added 3 peel off snowflakes at the side and added a paper elements greeting which coordinated with the snowflakes. and the typeface is very similar to the one on the papers.

the sweet stop challenge

the paper and greeting are from daisy and dandelions christmas range. the ribbon has been recycled from an old card ( it went once around the card) the bow is from the same card, as is the topper. i hope this is ok. the layout is totally different from the original.
the question is, is it ok to send it to the same person that sent us the original?

the pink elephant challenge

here is card that i have made for the pink elephant challenge. this was quite difficult to make as i decided on the backing paper first without thinking about the rest, but wouldn't not use it. so lots of paper cutting later and here it is. the snowman is from a reduced chipboard set i bought in hobbycraft last year. the papers are all from DCWV's the winter matstack. the greeting came with daisy and dandelion christmas papers- i need to get some christmas greeting peel offs!
