stampartic challenge card

This card is my first entry for a Stampartic challenge. In this challenge stitching and masking a stamped image must be used. The background lettering stamp is from Stampsmith and the house is from the Dutch houses set by Avec. (my favourite stamps). The key is a free stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine. I made the flowers, using techniques I have seen on several websites. I decided to leave the house plain white, I think it looks quite effective.
Thanks for looking.

cute card thursday challenge

This week's Cute Card Thursday challenge is to make a card with an aperture. So here's my effort, a last minute Christmas Card. I embossed the front and inside with cuttlebug embossing folders and the aperture was cut out using a frame die from Nellie Snellen. Hope you like it. Oh, I also added quite a bit of glitter, I seem to be addicted to it now!

This card has been made using a sketch from Get Sketchy. This is for the GS#18 challenge. The second challenge is for Cute Card Thursday,
Their theme is Sew Beady. I think the digi image is from Wendy's Digistamps.

I made this card for a friend at work. When I had finished I couldn't wait to give it to her - she loved it. I made the flowers with the help of a tutorial on Julies Inkspot. I have left a link to her blog earlier.

This is a card I made for a friend who has a Welsh friend. The message inside is in Welsh and English. A very simple but sweet card. I was glad to hear that the recipient was very pleased with it!

birthday card for a boy

I find it very difficult to make male birthday cards because at the moment I want to put flowers and glitter on everything. I think this card is quite bright and effective - it's one of my favourite side step cards. I have decided to enter this one in the Cute Card Thursday challenge. Its my first challenge entry - I hope I do it right!

I found the tutorial for these clever paper flowers; this one is only my second attempt at one, and I'm extremely pleased with the result. Click here for the link.

I've been busy making cards for Christmas, so I haven't added anything lately. I have a new Cuttlebug and am so addicted to using it! A friend has asked me to make some personalised cards for her as she has so little time to make them herself. Here are a couple of them:

I have just one picture to show you for the moment. I'm just experimenting with this new blog!
This card, I am hoping to enter into a girly card challenge. It is a challenge for me as I'm not all that girly - I'll have to practice.
