Red,yellow and orange-Stampotique challenge.

Stampotique have gone all summery for the latest challenge! I made an ATC using Smile-I just love that stamp! I did the background with Distress Ink reinkers. I saw an interesting blog the other day with flowers made out of card candy so I gave it a go.I can't remember the blog name but will credit it when my memory comes back!

I'm going to post this at Handmade Monday too.

Diva ATCs

I made a bit of a boob with the Anything Goes swap on UKScrappers this month. I thought I'd sent my ATCs in, then couldn't remember making them, then forgot about them altogether (where is my brain!) So I ended up making some quick ones as I only had a day left to get them in. Cue new cat stamp!

Buttons-Less Is More

This week Less Is More is all about ribbons or buttons, which was great because I've got buttons out all over the kitchen table! I made two cards and still have buttons left so I may make more!

This one was coloured with my new Promarkers(can't put them down!).

My favourite free stamp ever!

I'm popping this on Handmade Monday too,seeing as I was a naughty girl and didn't get round to doing it last week!

Circles-Less Is More

The theme at Less Is More this week is circles, and it's taken a long time to come up with something! I've just taken delivery of a new set of Promarkers so it was a good opportunity to use them!

Flowers-Stampotique challenge

Stampotique's challenge at the moment is flowers. I wasn't sure what to do but then I found this Flower Fairy stamp lurking in the depths and realised that I've never used it before- I don't even remember buying it(hangs head in shame).I'm not sure I've used it to best effect-I think I need to have a play with it-but I loved the cutting out!I know it's a bit of a cliché,Flower Fairy for a flower card but couldn't resist it once I'd found the stamp!

Leaving Card

Another friend leaving work for a job with better prospects. Fingers crossed it'll be my turn soon (that'll only happen in la-la land!). Sorry-I had to use my PBS stamp again because I just find it perfect for the job!

Birthday card for friend's 40th

Couldn't resist using this stamp again with the martini sentiment this time for my friend's 40th birthday. She's leaving the country before the big day so I made sure she got this before she went-well you can't let the day go without some celebration! I don't know what's happened to me but I've come over all flowers recently!

Less Is More-things with legs

This week's Less is More is to do a one layer card featuring things that have legs! Couldn't think of a better stamp to use than this one (but no doubt I'll find more!)

I'm also posting this at Handmade Monday.

Birthday card-Art Journey children challenge

This month's Art Journey challenge is Children. I needed a birthday card for a friend who's obsessed with planting stuff in her backyard to encourage butterflies back to the environment so this stamp was ideal! It's a fabulous stamp set and I can't wait to use it again.

ATCs-text as background

This month's ATC swap on UKStampers is to use text in your background. I thought a peeled paint-ish look would be a good place to start and stamped the image to add on the top. Couldn't resist a party hat on man's best friend!

Shades of Blue-Less is More

This week's challenge (where's the week gone?!) on Less is More is to use shades of blue. I used this lovely stamp I bought in a job lot a while ago. I wish I knew who made it because I'd love to check their other stuff out! It's stamped in navy on a lighter blue background with a bit of gold pen added-sorry-tried not to add but couldn't resist it!

I'm posting over at Handmade Monday too.

Wedding card

Well, I made the invites and the order of service cards and now I get to go to the wedding! I made the wedding card on a little canvas for a change. It's painted with Cosmic Shimmer but the shimmer got lost between camera and here! I stamped the background in silver with the same stamp I used for the invites but that doesn't really show on the photo either. I feel a photography course coming on!
