A snippet card

Hi all,well can only seem to make most of my cards lately just using snippets and odd bits from my stash and its all because of Di over at Pixies crafty workshop where she opens the playground door for you to join in.

So for this card I used one of the stamps from the SU 'flower shop' set and stamped a row of flowers along the edge of the card and then carefully cut around the edge. Next i stamped loads on scraps of white card using memento inks and then punched out using the matching SU 'pansy' punch. And then in two layers matched them up the stamped flowers on card.The top layer i raised with foam pads. Pink ribbon was a scrap from a top and then I stamped the greeting from SU 'express yourself' stamp set and punched up with SU 'modern label' punch.
Right off to add this to Pixies Snippets Challenge.x

Happy Anniversary Sandra

Hi all, well this is a card for a special buddy of mine and her hubby who are celebrating 32 years of marriage so congratulations to Sandra and Richard.

I have to confess to taking about 20 photos as the mirri card was being stubborn lol. Anyway I remembered to add pearls as Sandra loves them.
I used the heart stamp from SU 'you are loved' and silver embossed it, used heart nesties and the naughty mirri card. Sentiment is from Su 'label love' and cut out with matching Artisan Label punch. Used my bargain Magnolia die 'leaf and swirl' to make a feature of the white card layer and then cut swirl in more Miri card.
Have to admit to feeling a bit rough this morning with my cold and sore throat so fingers crossed all it goes soon and sorry If I have not popped around to see you yet x

Lady in red & happy birthday Teresa

Hi all, today's card is using one of my fave gorjuss images ' little red' and coloured with promarkers.

Stamped it several times and layered up. Does anyone know how to avoid the ball tool lines especially on the face? Or am I just being too heavy handed! Used labels 8 nesties, sizzex banners #2 which had a matching stamp. Paper from a old Joanna Sheen pad and flowers, pearls and heart clip from stash.
Have woken up with the start of a cold so hoping it goes by Sunday as that's the next Bristol craft meet x
P.s update - this card is for Teresa whose birthday it is today so pop over and say happy birthday x

A bit blingtastic!

Hi all,well the only excuse for this card is I made it whilst watching Big Fat Gypsy Weddings lol

Dug out one of my Tilda stamps and stamped several times and then coloured with my promarkers. Cut out various parts of the stamp and raised them using pinflair glue. Oval nesties to cut out the image. Paper and card from stash. Martha Stewart 'bubble' border punch and Sizzex 'banners 2' die and stamped greeting from SU ' made for you' set and then a load of gems.
