Balloon and monkey

This little monkey is the Bugaboo freebie this week.
I used a simple layout and made a quick card. 
I cut the image with a wonky stitched die, added a stamped sentiment and layered the panel onto a background of two DPs.

      Bride and groom

      I was inspired by the bookcover over at Marina's challenge and made this wedding card.
      Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh. File this under "gorgeous novel." Perfect pick for Downton fans.
      My inspiration was the bride, the car, the colors and my DP had a banner printed on it - quite fitting. I used sand ink and a freebie stamp and held my breath while stamping as it was the last thing I added to my card. The image is from Stamping Bella, colored with Promarkers and lots of WoS on her dress.Several dies used and a paper from Maja.

      Butterflies X 2

      Today I finished two cards for Twofer Card challenge where the theme is butterflies. My butterfly stamp is from Penny Black.

      Card 1 - Roses
      For this card I used a freebie set of Alternew roses. The butterflies are stamped with sand colored ink and I attached a pearl to each butterfly. The label is stamped and I chose an old looking paper.
      This card is also for:
      Allsorts - #468 Happy Birthday
      Fussy and Fancy - #212 FAVORITE FLORALS

      Card 2 - Wildflowers
      Here I was inspired by the colors yellow, blue and green. I used a TH stencil and the sentiment as well as the butterfly are Penny Black stamps. The butterfly is popped on foam and I kept the die cut wildflowers white.

      Sketch With Santa

      Say it with flowers

      I have made this card for this week's challenge over at Catch the Bug where the theme is 'Say it with flowers'.

      I've been digging through my piles of DPs again, where I fond two to combine. The imag has been colored with Promarkers and DIs together with water. The sentiment is made up with two staps fro different sets. I die cut a frame with a MFT die and stapled on some gold squins.

      Color and sketch - Tim Holtz Runway image

      May is a month full of bank holidays and days off work. Today I've enjoyed a 2 hour walk in the sunshine, a little time in my craft room to make this card, and tonight I'll be wathing the Eurovision semifinals part 2 on TV.

      For this card I used an image from Tim Holtz, colored with
      Promarkers. The sentiments are made with two stamps, one from Penny Black AVD one from Pavduro. Three yellow enamel dots were added.

      Card made with a kit from a magazine

      I made this card with a Hunkydory topper and paper from a set called `Love Christmas`, which came free with a magazine a while back, I'm not sure which.
      I cut the paper into sections to mimic the sketch over at 52CCT,  then attached the reindeer topprt onto a die cut star shape made with dies I received from Mervi (thanks!).
      I stitched around the edges and added frantage, a die cut + Dymo sentiment and I stapled on a few sequins.

      Flowers for mum

      I have made this card for this week's challenge over at Catch the Bug where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

      I've been using more DPs again lately. I have a huge amount of papers and I love them. Spots have alwas been a favorite of mine and I think the color of the paper matched well with the image colored with Promarkers. I also used a scrap for the panel and the border is made with a die that came free with a magazine.

      Christmas + Play

      This piece of blue green DP has been sitting on my desk for awhile. Finally it was put to use. I cut out the middle section to use both sides of the paper, having musical notes in the centre and snowy edges. I teamed it up with a vintage image of angels playing. 
      I found it to turn out a bit too dark in color, so I went with a white paper and a corner poinsettia die. WoS added to the leaves. 
      Then a die cut merry from Tim Holtz and a stamped and gold embossed Christmas. A few sequins for sparkle.
