Elisabeth bell Planting some love for Southern Girls Challenge

Good afternoon! thanks for stopping by.  I have made a card for our challenge over at The Southern Girls Challenge.  This fortnight, we are asking you to button up.... use buttons on your projects somewhere.  I have used an image by the amazing Elisabeth Bell called Planting Some Love.  I bought a new die whilst on holidays in Canberra - the hearts banner by La La Lands.  I have used two buttons at the ends and I popped a little rhinestone  in the centre of each.  I also popped two little buttons at the edges of my ribbon used from my stash.  The flowers are WOC and the butterfly is one of my glittery acetate butterflies made by me :-) The DP is from a prima pad called Fairy Belle.  I dotted some liquid pearls around and splashed some stickles and dimensional magic around here and there.

so pop on over to the Southern Girls Challenge and show us all those beautiful buttons out there! Cant wait to see what you all create :-)

Penny Black Tulip Jungle mother's day card

Hello!Thanks for stopping by.  Here's another card I made before I went on holidays, hopefully in preparation for a couple of stalls I will be selected for.  This time I have an old favourite Tulip Jungle by Penny Black.  I love Penny Black stamps and have about four draw full of wooden, plus about a dozen of her clear sets... she is a favourite and her images are gorgeous.  I used my circular sentiments from Lili of the Valley, again cut with my lacey circles die from spellbinders.  I have used a swirl die by magnolia and have used chandeliers and flowers from WOC.  The DP is by Bo Bunny from the Prairie Chic collection pad.  I added some dimensional magic to the flowers and stickles to the leaves which you cant really see in the pics, but it makes them pop!

Bearly mine challenge: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: April showers Or Spring Flowers

Elisabeth Bell Happy Mail

Last card for the night, as I am off to bed :-)  From the divine Elisabeth Bell "Happy mail".  I LOVE this image. Unfortunately, this is a Belles and Whistles stamp which has now closed store, so I am not sure if this stamp is still available under another company.  The DP is from Prima's Sunkiss collection.  I have edged the chequered paper with a Martha Stewart edging punch.  I have used spellbinders lacey circles and large circle for the image.  Flowers are WOC.  I have used some Divine twine and lace from my stash.  I found a silver key charm and bicone crystals, which I have dangled from some chain.  I also glued some crystals to some tiger wire and scattered them among the flowers.  I added some flower soft to the flowers as well as dimensional magic and stickles.

Hanglar mother's day card

Good afternoon.  I have just spent two glorious weeks down in Canberra with family for holidays and it was such a long overdue holiday! So I apologise for my absence, but I did take my copics and some images with me, so got lots of colouring done... now I just need to make them into cards- the fun part :-)

This is a card I made before I went.  I am hoping to have a stall at the Handmade Expo at the Morayfield on the 5th May, so have done a couple of mothers day cards just in case I get approved.  This one is a Hanglar image which I stamped with a Kaiser Craft sentiment.  The butterfly paper is Prima Fairy Belle, but I'm not sure what DP the spotted paper is.  I have used Tim Holtz Flutterby die, WOC flowers and ribbon and rhinestones form my stash

I have used the following copic colours:
B14, 28
YR0000, 000, 00, 01
E000, 00, 18, 23, 31, 50

Thanks for stopping by. Will keep uploading cards that I have done as I get time.
