Little Claire Garden Set Card

Image
Hello and Happy Easter!
Today I'm sharing a card I've made for Little Claire's Lots of layers Challenge! I really like Little Claire's Designs and they have two lovely silhouette stamps up for grabs!
Here's the card I made:


I used the Garden Set stamps from Little Claire's Designs as they are just lovely and my mums been doing lots of potting flowers this month so got me inspired!
I stamped the images onto quality white card and coloured them in with pro markers, and stamped the sentiment (also from the 'Garden Set') straight onto the white floral paper.




The papers are Pink Petticoat - Vintage Rose collection. I backed the papers with pastel pink and green card from The Glitter Pot
I added some foam pads for a 3d effect, some glitter glue to the edges of the butterflies wings, a cute pink polka dot ribbon and some pink gems.

Really enjoyed layering up these pretty papers, hope you like it!

LOTV Puppy Love Card

Hello!
Today's card is another I made for Lili of the Valleys 10th Birthday! And I'm just in time to enter it into The Ribbon Girl's Lovely Lili challenge - Anything Goes!


For this card I used the stamp 'Puppy Love' from Lili of the Valley. It's so cute, fun to colour and very versatile.
I stamped the image and sentiment onto quality white card, coloured with pro markers then trimmed and backed with pastel blue card and popped a sweet little pink rose in the corner! The papers I used are Pink Petticoat - Vintage Rose Collection. I also backed these with the blue card, punched pink polka dot paper and blue card with Martha Stewart - Doily lace border punch. Then punched 2 butterflies from pink card using Martha Stewart - Butterfly punch, which I just glued down the middles so the wings stick out for a lovely effect.  I added I few dots of pearlescent glue in the corners and added lots of little pearl heart gems to made a swirl pattern and the number 10.

LOTV Doggie Delight Birthday Card

Image
Hello!
I've been routing through all my old stash to find bits I'd forgotten I had (don't you love doing that?!!) and came across some lovely bright papers and toppers!
I love the bright pastel colours and cute patterns!

They went just perfectly with a Lili of the Valley stamp I own called Doggie Delight! Love this stamp! Before my ME got severe I used to bake and decorate a lot of cakes and always make my friends and family birthday cakes (even my dog!!) and the dog even looks like mine so this stamp was right up my street!
Here's the card I made:


I coloured the image with my lovely pro markers as always! And I've added some pink bakers twine, pink gems, a little touch of glitter glue and I cut the image out using large scallop edge scissors.

Hope you like it I'd love to hear your comments!

Forever Friends Easter Card

Image
Hello! Today I'm sharing a sweet simple Forever Friends Easter card I made for a friend of mine!

She doesn't like too much going on in card designs so I kept it nice and simple! I used an Easter themed cute Forever Friends decoupage bear with some Easter themed paper from my stash, a thin ribbon and some Glitz It glitter glue to add some sparkle :-)

I love the cute little chick and picked this image as its a bit different to the normal Easter egg or bunny ears images and everyone loves Easter cakes right??!

I've also been doing a lot of stamping and colouring lately so this made a nice change.

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Happy Easter
Oldie but a goodie - It's Easter
Ooh La La Creations - Easter/Spring

Very New to this!

I've never had a blog before! And not completely certain how to use it...but here goes!
Here's a card I made last week for:
Lili of the Valleys 10th Birthday Card Challenge
And also
The Ribbon Girl - LOTV Anything Goes

I really love Lili of the Valley stamps and this is one of my fave! She is called Pom Pom from their girls stamps range! I also added a bit of sparkle to her dress and wings with a pink glitter glue, isn't she so cute!
