Cardmaking and crafts

My main craft love is cardmaking however there will be bits and bobs scattered around that are non-cardmaking, maybe a bit of baking, embroidery, knitting - whatever takes my fancy on the day

Inspiration from Papercrafting Journey

This is a card I came up with for the blog challenge.

It was using a picturefor inspiration and this is what I came up with.

I think they are woodware stamps and I coloured them using promarkers and spectrum noirs. 

Thanks for looking.

Mom's birthday card

It's my mom's birthday  next week and she's told me about a website she had found called D'arcy's Diaries and said how much she loved their images.  So I thought I'd have a look  for some inspiration for her birthday.  THE STAMPS ARE SOOOOO GORGEOUS!

I've used one of their images on her birthday card and plan to also decorate a gift bag for her pressie.

I have decided to enter the card into some challenges, the only glitch is that I have had to tell her not to look at my blog or at any challenge entries, luckily shes being a good sport :)

The papers are some that I had free with a magazine at some point - they are hot off teh press papers and are called 'soft nostalgia'.

The flowers are made using a memory box die and the centre is using a 'cherish' stamp that I bought in a small set (I think they were from Hobbycraft).  The image is colourd using promarkers and spectrum noirs.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

D'Arcy's diaries - flower power (3 or more flowers)
Freshly made sketches
Cutie pie challenge - favourite cute stamp
