Tuesday Craft Club Cards

Couple of cards made at Tuesday Craft Club, cards for men and boys. This Penny Black stamp is so cute and ideal for male birthdays or fathers day. Coloured with Prisma pencils and Sansador, my favourite method of colouring in! Thanks again as always to Andrea for the fab ideas! The Knight and Dragon is Papernation decoupage.

More Cards!!

A selection of cards made this week, been playing about with stamping and watercolouring. I love these stamps, simple designs yet so effective.

Another 2 awards today!

Received these 2 awards today from Andrea

Thursday's cards

Made 3 cards today using the Penny Black dog & puppy stamps, from the Critter Party clear stamp range. Coloured with Prisma pencils and Sansador. The dog and rose one was made by embossing with Cuttlebug and Nestabilities, easier than I thought it would be following Sue Nelson's easy instructions on Heartprints

Today's Cards

Made these cards today using my little Cuttlebug machine and Nestabilities. Cat and Hedgie & Mouse are Penny Black stamps and flower one is Hero Arts Flower Sketch

Cards from Tuesday Craft Club

Both cards made at Craft Club last night. The pink one is really funky, it has a sort of retro look to it, a very girly card.

The flower one is very fresh looking, reminds me of Spring.
Thanks to Andrea as always for her brilliant inspiration.

A couple of Sugar Nellies!

A couple of Sugar Nellies made today, I have been busy! Rushed through the housework this morning so I could spend the rest of the day crafting. The background papers are from the Papermania Simply Elegant paper stack. The images are stamped and coloured using Prisma and Sansador. Flowers are Hero Arts. The sentiments are stamped and circles cut using Nestabilities in Cuttlebug.

Cards made today

Made these 2 cards today. Pink and black go so well together on cards and I just love the Sugar Nellie stamps. I have stamped this one and then coloured with Prisma pencils and blended using Sansador. The flower is a die-cut using my Cuttlebug and I have 'sat' Sugar Nellie on the border of the card which has been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.

Christening Cards

This is one of 22 invites made for a friend's baby girls Christening. I made 3 samples for her to choose from and this is the one she liked best.

Hedgie Baby Card

Another card made at Craft Club last night. This Penny Black baby hedgie stamp is so cute and the lilac makes a nice change from pink or blue. The pearlised lilac card is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and the image is coloured using pencils and Sansador. Doodled around the edges.
Thanks to Andrea for the inspiration for this lovely card.

Wedding Tags

Made at Craft Club last night. The tags were cut on a Cricut machine. The hearts stamped and embossed in silver and the tags were covered in a lovely pearlised wedding swirls paper. Middle tag is stamped and the cake and wedding couple are cut outs from "The Paper Company Studio" range.

Thanks to Andrea for the inspiration for this fabulous card.

'Footie' Card

A similar card but using the Cuttlebug 'Bubbles' folder
and a 'Happy Birthday' stamp.

Cards for Men & Boys

A couple of cards made this week. This one was made at Craft Club on Tuesday evening and I liked the stamp so much I just had to have it! It's such a versatile stamp, it could be used for male birthdays or Father's Day. This one was coloured in with felt tips pens and doodled around the edges. The red card background was embossed with the Cuttlebug folder 'Traffic Jam' and matted onto black card. The stars in the background are again stamped and the GOAL wording were cut on the Cricut machine.
