Making cards again

So today I made a card which I can't post yet, but it made me realise I hadn't posted when I made some cards a week or so ago, so I thought why not catch up with this too whilst I seem to be in a blog writing mood!
This was a PolkaDoodles stamp free with a magazine and I followed one of the design ideas from the magazine to paper piece the image with patterned paper.

The paper itself was also a freebie from an old magazine and I love it. Really fresh and bright and pretty.

The background I again used a magazine article as a starting point although my end one looks a little different.

Really pleased with this although it took an age to do each piece and reminded me that I hate cutting out!
From the same set of stamps I did this and this was again using the ideas in the mag as a starting point. Love the Martha Stewart punch I used for the vellum ribbon and it was lovely to get to use the pro markers again.
Used the same Martha Stewart punch as the one above, but this time stuck to the embellishment as the main feature. Stamping up sentiment stamp for the corner, stamped in rose red stampin up ink.
This time a Gorjuss stamp, coloured with pro markers and on a die cut panel. I then distressed the edge with the spun sugar distress ink before layering up and adding the embellishments.

Can you see the theme of the punch in the background once again! This time a pale pinky lilac vellum ribbon effect!
Now this is very different.

As part of my order with Helen of stampin up goodies she popped in a little kit to make up a couple of cards and this is what I made with mine. I was meant to post this on another blog somewhere as a link but can't find it now so it will have to be here instead!

Obviously not so cutesy like my others above, but a nice simple card with lovely colours and textures. Thanks Helen. P.s. hope u feel better soon! Please everyone visit Helen's personal blog here
I did make some more cards but forgot to take photos and they are all now in the stash box at work, or already sold! But at least you can see some of the stuff I have been up to in between the art I've been producing!

Thank you for looking and happy crafting one and all!

  1. The fourth one down is my favourite- the colouring on her hair looks great.
    If you take photos with your ipad, try using an app called 'big lens'. A crafty friend on here who loves takes photos too recommended it to me as I have trouble taking photos of the dogs with my iphone as they just blur into one mass of black with no definition.
