Trying Something New

As some of you know im out of sorts with card making and have been for too many months now.
So i have had this mdf letter in my craft stash for almost 2 years now so thought i'd have a play.

I covered it with Craftwork cards paper added lots of ribbon, a charm and some wood lovehearts painted with crakle paint and glitter.

I am very pleased with how it turned out, it look so much nicer in real life. Just ordered some more of these from ebay so hope they come quickly.

Penny Black

Penny Black have a fabulous challenge this week

Penny Black/Ground

Use your penny black stamp to create a background.

As some of you are aware i have not felt like crafting for a lonnnnng time, but recently i tried a new approach, i moved away from character images and got out the distress inks.. so this weeks challenge at penny black was right up my street. This is my all time favorite Penny Black stamp, the shaped card is from Craftwork cards  i stamped randomly on the card them distressed round the edges.

I have lots more cards made in this new (to me) craft style when i am feeling braver i will share them ...

Just Magnolia & Hanglar

This week at Just magnolia & Hanglar the challenge is

Buttons, Bows & Blooms

The buttons and blooms are fine but i dont do bows purely cause i can not make them look right no matter how i try... so i had to use a ready made one. The fabulous image is one of a set i bought about three month ago and have only just used (tut tut) i coloured her with promarkers. The papers are My minds eye, flowers, gems and button from my stash and the little cupcake (so cute) is part of a set from my local craft shop.

Long time no post

Well nearly three months without crafting, but this long weeked i decided to give it a go and hey presto i came up with some cards (Hurrah).

This one is for my niece who's birthday is today so a bit of a rush job to get it finished.

I am entering this card into All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge they want us to create something

 "marvelously Magnolia"

I bought this set of Magnolia stamps ages ago when they first came out but this is the first time i have even inked them up.  Image coloured with distress inks. The papers are My Minds Eye i also bought these ages ago but only just used them.

The sentiment stamp is from Lily of the Valley, i've been after this stamp for ages and managed to get it at Harrogate earlier in the year. I even felt upto a little decoration inside the card, and made a little pocket for some money.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love, don't know when i'll be back lol....
