Cat For You

This cute image was a decoupage sheet downloaded from Pollycraft and I've added background paper from my oddments box around the edge of which I've drawn some faux stitching. I also added some stripey ribbon and tiny buttons from Papermania which have been threaded with matching embroidery cotton. Once the cutting out was done this was a quick and easy card to make.

Free Dog Stamp

I thought it was time I used the free dog stamp which came with Craft Stamper - he was stamped with memento ink and coloured with copics, cut out and popped onto a cuttlebug embossed circle with Nellies die cuts behind this and for the message. Background paper is by Papermania and the flowers were made using X-cut punches which I understand are being discontinued.

Cupcakes again

I think this card has used up the last of the cupcake images which I stamped while visiting a friend recently.The background paper is from my oddments box and is by Stampin Up. Image coloured using copics with a little glitter added and all finished with ribbon and card candy.

Build a Pansy

Papermania have from time to time been producing sets of stamps on the Build a Flower theme and the latest is a lovely pansy. The petals were stamped and coloured with Copics and then formed into the flower which is actually quite large at around 2.5 inches so not too fiddly to make. Background paper is from my oddments box but I think it is by Artylicious and the flower was mounted onto a Nesties oval. The card was finished with a Spellbinders border, some ribbon and card candy from Craftwork Cards coloured to match the flower.
Watch this space for a card using a rose which has many more petals than the pansy so takes longer to colour and make up.

Week 9 challenge at Polkadoodles is wings and must include some stamping so I've used one of their tree stamps using a masking technique for the image. Background paper and the cut out butterfly are from their Back to Nature collection. The sentiment is one of their stamps also and I just had to add a few Papermania gems. The edges of the Nestabilities shapes were sponged with Distress ink, corner is from a Sizzix die - nearly fogot - I used Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder too.
