4 Cards from 1 A4 sheet…

Hello

I have found myself with a little extra crafty time this week. That meant I could a) watch a youtube video or 2 b) actually follow through with one of those newly acquired crafty “must try” techniques that I plan to do however rarely complete!

Papersmooches Blossoming Buds…

Hello

 

I have been playing with Papersmooches Blossoming Buds and thought I would link up to the current challenge here

Here is my first card Papersmooches Blossoming Buds teamed with PTI Penned Elegance. Coloured with alcohol markers.

 

And my second card is teamed with Jane’s Doodles Mother’s Day.  Once again coloured with alcohol markers.

 

Both sentiment pieces are cut using SSS stitched circles & ME Sew Fancy dies.

Time for a challenge or two…

Hello

I have had a crafty week! I spent yesterday at the very first Altenew Workshop in Australia with the lovely Tasnim (and her family) and Therese from lostinpaper. I got to meet the lovely warm and extremely friendly Therese in person after years of talking through forums and blogs.  I also meet in person the lovely Aileen from colourandsparkle for the first time and loads of other crafty people.  I’ll share more in a later post as the sets we used have not been released yet. Yes I have decided my cards are blog worthy after all.

Anyway on with what else I have been creating.  I received some new sets last week and inked them up straight away – a rare thing indeed!

I have also made a conscience decision to make the NBUS pile on my desk extinct! The first cards are from my NBUS stash.  I do shop at times faster than I can create – I know I am not alone here!

My first card is using Concord and 9th Happy Day set which I have had for a while I teamed this with sentiments from Your next Stamp What not sentiments 4.  I made two cards using this set.  The first I coloured with watercolour pencils and added highlights with markers and the second I coloured with alcohol markers.

The first one I am entering into the challenge at Double D here and Bizzy Bec’s anything goes here.

and the second card using alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the main image and popped up with foam tabs.

My parcel was from Jane’s Doodles.  Jane had generously offered a free mini cupcake stamp set with orders on the recent International Women’s day.  Here it is coloured with alcohol markers and a sentiment from Jane’s Birthday Wishes set.

I also inked up Jane’s Doodles Magnolia and Mother’s Day sets.

and my last card for today is a request.  For sometime now I have been making cards for mum I know who gives her daughter chick themed cards.  This one is for easter and uses SU Honeycomb Happiness and ABS Easter Chickadee coloured with watercolour pencils and markers.

Until next time
