Little Picture to Hang in My Cupboard!!

Made myself a little picture to hang in my cupboard, the walls are a little bland at the moment.(even though there's not much of them!). I chose Penny Black as I adore these hedgies which I think are so cute. The one with the pressie is in an aperture so it has a nice dimension to it, not sure if that shows very well on screen. Popping off down to Hythe today with my family so hopefully will have a nice day out, at the moment nice bright sunshine!
Thanks for stopping by my cupboard.

Penny Black Challenge - Glitter and Glitz


This is my entry for the Penny black challenge which is to use Glitter and Glitz. I have used Penny Black 'Daisy Chain' which is one of my fav stamps and I have coloured with promarkers. I have glittered the daisies with cosmic shimmer and I thought it would be fun to make a daisy for an embelishment, I hope it looks like one? I have also given it a dunk in in the cosmic shimmer glitter and added a splatter of gems. PB is also looking for DT members if you are interested hop over and take a look. Oh if you click on the picture you can get a better look!
Thanks for popping by my cupboard!

This is my entry for the Basic Grey challenge which asked for pearls to be used. I have used a pearl effect ribbon slider , kindly donated by my fab sis and some pearls in the corners. The striped paper is Basic Grey, Kioshi. I have used some flowers from my stash and used a punch for the centre of them and the sentiment is using the SU stamp set and matching punches.
Thanks for popping over.

LOTV Challenge Card 60


Here is my entry for LOTV challenge, the theme is seasons and seeing as I just cannot get into Christmas cards yet I chose Summer. The Stamp is 'On Tiptoe', the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts as are the gems. I used embossed paper for the background and gave a quick paint with cosmic shimmer to tone down. All finished off with a bit of sparkle and Stickles.

All the green shades and pinks remind me of a lovely summer day!

Little Aperture Card


Just thought I would find a few more photos to add to my new blog. I love butterflies and flowers, hence this cute little aperture card. It is a very easy little card to make but gives a lovely effect. The papers are from My Minds Eye. The sentiment is using the Stamping Up Tiny Tags which I seem to have a bit of an obsession with. My fab sister is a SU demonstrator which means I get loads of stuff to borrow as well as inspiration. Please hop over and visit her blog, Card Delights.
