Blossom

I've had a few days away in Sheffield visiting the outlaws, but am back now and missing my crafting! I've dug out an image which I don't think I've used before called Golden Nector by Sugar Nellie which is perfect for the new challenge which starts today at the Sugar Bowl.

There's also a dies and/or punches challenge starting today at In The Pink so I've used a stitched circle nesting die as well as a Cottage Cutz Blossom Branch die which has only had a few outings since I had to buy it a few years ago.  I think it's perfect for the floral themed image and papers.

I've printed a curved sentiment onto vellum and tucked it behind the image panel and popped some pearl dots and white gel pen into the flower centres to give them some definition.

Bunny Easter Bouquet

Happy Easter everyone.

I'm sharing the last of my Easter makes for this year today, and yup, it's another bunny from  Lili of the Valley.  This one's watercoloured though, and although I'm not a huge fan of orange, yellow or green, I wanted a Spring theme, and I am really pleased with how this one turned out.

Happy Birthday

I've made a birthday card for my dad's fiancĂ©e's 76th birthday. I'm not really sure if she likes 'cute' so I've kept it 'cute-free' which is quite rare for me.  I've gone a bit flower crazy (so I hope she likes flowers!)

Easter Wryn

Today I'm sharing my penultimate Easter card ("thank goodness", I hear you say!) but there's not a bunny in sight this time, just Wryn with a baby chick!

Happy Easter Bunny & Chick Wobble

It's Thursday and I have a day off work today, so I'm hoping it stays sunny for the long bank-holiday weekend.  Today's project is to support the challenge at As You Like It Challenge where it's a Bingo theme.  I love quite a few of the lines, but my favourite embellishments are usually ribbon & pearls and I do love a spot of purple, so I've opted for the diagonal line.

Easter Basket of Chicks

Day 2 of my Easter card egg-stravaganza with a cute image from Lili of the Valley.  I've kept the layout simple by following a sketch, but I've added some flowers which were a gift from the lovely Sue (mwah!).

Easter Tilda

I've been busy making Easter cards this weekend (yup I'm smidgeon bit late!) and this is the first one I'm sharing.  I've had Little Miss Tilda coloured for a while, but have only just now managed to give her a card to call home!

Baby Bunny

I'm not a great fan of green, but I do happen to like this combo of dusky green and cream.  I'm not sure why I opted for non-traditional baby colours on this card, but I think it's sweet and still fairly boyish.  The image and papers are both from Lili of the Valley, but sadly both are now retired.

Note to self: Relax

Lili of the Valley have some new stamps out on 31 March and I'm sharing a sneak peek of one of them, called Jasmine Coffee.  I thought she was so lovely that I've made her the focus without any fuss around her on a very CAS design.  The sentiment seemed apt for her too, and it's part of a sentiment set that's due to be released at the same time.  They're all available to pre-order at LOTV.

My First Christmas Card of the Year!

It's coming up for the middle of March, so I thought I'd make a start on my Christmas cards (as you do!) This one uses one of my new 'cut it out' dies and a Tiny Townie.  I paper pieced the presents, but shaded them to give them some depth.

Flower Baggie

I've made this oversized tag to attach to a baggie that I've made to gift wrap a plant.  The image is one of the newbies from Stamping Bella and it's very Spring-like.  I love the huge flower and squished bunny!




Here's the baggie, which I made from a 12x12 double sided paper with an 8x8 paper base.  I've punched the strip at the bottom but you probably can't see that unless you zoom in.  The plant is quite tall so I made the ribbon handles really long, but they're tucked inside the baggie in this pic.

Easter Bunny

There's a new challenge starting today at As You Like It Challenge where the theme is Embossing. I really love the effect of dry embossing, and here I've used a really simple Swiss Dots embossing folder to create a panel across the top of my card.  I've also used a flower die that I've embossed and inked to give it some definition.

Spring Bunny

You may have seen that there is a Spring themed challenge on the LOTV Facebook page this week, so I've made a little Easter card using one of the newly restocked Lili of the Valley images, Spring Bunny with Daffs.  The challenge ends on 13th so hop on over to join in.

Birthday Brittany

It'a a CAS design from me today and I've used a colour combo that I wouldn't normally opt for. Although I love purple, I'm not a huge fan of green (and by that I mean 'not at all') but I quite like the finished combo here.  This is one of my favourite Uptown Girl images.  I just wish I had that cake in my hands.

Mother's Day Bunny

Well March is here so we're meant to be moving into Spring (although I think someone forgot to order it because it's still cold and wet) but with Spring in mind, I have a cute little bunny with some spring flowers to share today.  It's for my MIL's Mother's Day card so I hope she likes it. I've water coloured the image and added a custom sentiment.  The ribbon is a lovely sparkly deep pink, and it's wired so it holds the bow beautifully. I've had to wrap it well for posting to stop it getting squished and battered by the time it gets 'oop North' to her.  This project also supports the challenge at In The Pink where the theme is for a special lady.
