Kitsch Card

Evening all,

This time next week the school year will have ended and I will be starting 8 weeks holiday :) whoooo hoooo.
Anyway I have an Easel Card to shre with you.
I was looking through my paper scraps folder and came across some of this gorgeous leopard skin paper from Basic Grey and thought it would go perfectly with this Greetings Farm stamp.

I coloured her with my promarkers: Satin, Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Dusky Pink, ice Grey 1,2,3, Cool Grey 4,5,Black, Lipstick Red and Red. I also coloured the roses from The Ribbon Girl  with my lipstick red promarker. The gorgeous vintage lace is also from the Ribbon Girl.

The quotation stamp is by Paper Make Up stamps and I adore it, goes perfect with the image too.
I made the matching presentation box to protect the card through transit.

This card is available to buy in my Etsy Store.

Recipe Time - Eclectic Ellapu

Morning everyone,

Again I'm apologising for my shocking lack of blog posts and comments on all you lovely peeps. Ive been flat out busy at work, this is such a busy term at school!

Anyway time for another challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and this week its the turn of us purples and I'm your hostess. I've chosen a recipe theme:

1 digi/stamped image, 2 embellies, 2 die cuts and 3 design papers.

I used the gorgeous "Graduation Girl 2013" from Saturated Canary and coloured her with my promarkers. I used my grand label and oval nesties and Swiss dots embossing folder. I added two gems from my stash and used scraps of paper. The sentiment is from "LOTV".

Remember you can make anything you want as long as it follows the recipe.Please check out my fellow teamies inspiration here.

All the B's - Eclectic Ellapu Challenge

Good Morning everyone,
How beautiful has the weather been this past week, we've been suitably toasty warm up here in Cumbria and my vitamin D levels are now packed to the max lol, long may it last. Time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu this week and it's the turn of us Purples.

Theme: All The B's (use things beginning with B on your card). Ive chosen: B - Baby, B - Butterfly, B - Beads.

These cards were made to order by a lovely lady in America, she opted for white on white with  minimum colour so I used a gorgeous pearlised white card and embossed with roses to symbolise love. The Butterflies which were die cut and embellished with beads symbolise New life. The gorgeous Sugar Nellie Digi was coloured with my promarkers and the card was finished with white roses and flowers from the Ribbon Girl.

I made a tissue lined presentation box for each card, with this gorgeous little embossing sentiment I got with my cuttlebug and was long forgotten about.

Thank you for looking, please check out my fellow teamies creations and you can enter yours with miss linky.
Good luck :).
