Lots of photos in this post, hope you enjoy the cards. This first was inspired by the Challenge over at
My inspiration from the photo is the soft colours, the soft pink, the pattern on the white biscuits,
the little flowers and birds and the heart shaped biscuits.
For my card I used a piece of soft pink vellum that has a wonderful sparkle to it. You can see the sparkle in the photo below where I have darkened the image slightly so you can see it better. I stamped and white embossed the pattern on the vellum. I attached the vellum to the card by tape at the back of the card and with little bits of tape in places where I have added flowers and birds on top of the vellum.
I die cut some hearts from a NBUS heart die from Stamplorations, you could leave the hearts in but I decided to just use the outline and a couple of the hearts at the bottom of the card.
The Flowers are from Lawn Fawn and the birds from a WPlus9 set.
My 'Happy Valentine Day' sentiment is from Mama Elephant.
These next cards were all inspired by Darnelle's new
Blog Challenge that she has started with a few wonderful
friends, most of whom I know and admire greatly.
What a fabulous challenge this will be and the first month that
I am just scraping in on is feathers. I looked at my wee supply of feather
stamps and my die stamps and nothing was jumping out at me. The problem was so many
beautiful cards had already been done with feathers that I just wanted so badly now
and my choices just weren't doing it for me.
Then I decided birds. Of course I have lots of birds, a literal avery full of birds that
haven't been used yet so I had to make a decision. Which one first. Seeing as I like a bit of humour
I went with this witty set from Sugar Pea. So not only am I entering a new challenge but Darnell has me using my NBUS stamps and boy do they need using (my house is starting to tilt with the pile of NBUS getting so heavy the footings are under stress).
I ended up making three cards, two I stamped the same with different sentiments which I just love.
Here we have the little duck's bum in the air and the sentiment 'Heard you were feeling under the weather'
So simple, stamped and coloured with copics. A little bit of blue glitter washi tape each side and finished.
On this card I added a couple of extra ducks which meant
I needed to move the greenery around abit to fit the scene in.
My sentiment this time
'There's always one in the bunch'
and down below
'You quack me up!'
This time I finished the card off with orange glitter washi tape.
The two cards together, same stamp set, different uses.
I had to make one more because I loved this sentiment as well.
'Waddle I do without you?'
This time just a little bit of blue glitter washi tape
across the top of the card.
There you go, one very fiddly card and three very simple easy cards.
