Back today with a cheery card for a friend  that is not feeling too well so bright colours will hopefully put a smile on their face and will be off to put in the post tomorrow.
The flowers I made using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies " Delicate Asters " which were stamped using Perfect Medium and then embossed in white.

The sentiment is from Kaisercraft Mini stamp set " Get Well" and then die cut using Spellbinders A2 Locking Loops and then to finish off the card randomly added drops of Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Pink PVA glue.

The colours were inspired by the fabulous challenge over at Color Throwdown this week.
Take care friends and back soon with another crafty blog post.

Hello and today a card stamped without a stamp and yes you did hear right as this is the challenge over at the friday mashup. At first I thought a crazy idea but now that I have tried it I will be using my stamp  blocks a lot more for blocking colour.
Using just one size of block I then picked a multi coloured ink pad for more effect and then placing them on the card in different directions.
Each square was cut using Spellbinders Classic Squares Small and then went round each edge with a Silver Marker pen. The lettering is Spellbinders Donna's Alphas which I cut from some fun foam which I love using and die cuts beautifully.

Very pleased with the result and thanks to the Friday Mashup I now have a whole set of new stanps to try out.
Thanks for stopping by and take care until the next time

Making up for lost crafting time so here is another card and this one is influenced by the colour combo over at color throw down 255 and a bit of a retro design.
For the pattern background I used That Special Touch Mask - Funky and coloured in with Promarkers. The flowers were cut from fum foam using Marianne Creatables die English Rose LR0 162.

The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamp set Fancy Phrases.
I really enjoyed using this colour combo and as always love seeing what other designs people come up with. Until the next time enjoy the rest of your  day.


colourQ challenge 202

I am back had a bit of time off due to having my knee done and not feeling too good but glad to report that things are a lot better and no need for crutches any more so back to crafting.
My card for today the colours are from the challenge over at colour which are Ruby Red,  Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron and White. The background was created using JustRite clear stamps "Doilies and Lace" which is a great buy as there are approx. 28 stamps in this set both small and large.

To add a bit of texture to the centre of the flowers I used Chloes Glass Glitter "Berry Mix".
