Stamp Something ,,,,,, Flowers, Buttons and Sparkle :-)

Happy Easter !! I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend and looking forward to all the choccy we get to eat on Sunday. My fave is Cadbury’s Whole Nut so I am hoping the Easter Bunny will bring me a HUGE bar of that rather than an egg !! :-)

Anyways ,,, time for a new theme over on the Stamp Something Challenge :-


We are sponsored this week by Funky Kits so a lovely Sugar Nellie on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I used this very cute Upside Down image by Diane Duda ,, I love her designs !!:-) I coloured her with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are my current faves ,, Neighbourhood collection from Crate Paper ,,, gorgeous I think, this was a gift from Joey and Scoopy from Crafty Emma’s Store , the flowers have little button centers too ,, perfect for this challenge !! I used some green SU ribbon and matching card for layering. The flower is a Fabric Bloomer from Prima, it comes complete with the button and I used a Martha Stewart butterfly and a leaf frond punch. I added Star Dust Stickles and Robins Nest dew Drops for the sparkle Smile

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile

It is time for a new theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge and this time it is Joey’s turn to decide what we should do and she chose ,,,,


With Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding only a few days away its just PERFECT ! :-) What will you be doing next Friday ,,, watching it on the telly or will you be outside Westminster Cathedral flag waving ?? I will be glued to my telly with a freshly baked Victoria sponge, a plate of coconut macaroons and a pot of tea !!! :-)

We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps and one lucky entrant will have a choice of 5 digi images from her store !! :-) Thanks Denise xx

For my card I used a fab new Lawn Fawn stamp set called Bake Me a Cake ,,, I LOVE this set,,, so much fun !! There are loads of different elements to use to create a different cake every time !! I was asked by a friend to make a Wedding card for her to give to her nephew and she wanted pink and roses so I hope this will be OK !

I didn’t have any pink card ,,, shame on me !! ,, so all the pink is coloured with a RV32 Copic pen, I coloured the image with a couple of Copics ,,, C and RV shades and inked the edges with a cream chalk ink pad then smothered with loads of Star Dust stickles. I used some hammered white card and embossed a panel with a flowery folder. I used a Martha Stewart Heart Border punch and the flowers and ribbon are from WOC and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set.
