You are my Sunshine

This sunny stamp is from a set by Papermania and has been coloured using copic pens; the sentiment is from the same stamp set.  Background paper is also by Papermania and the lace has been waiting around for ages to be used; image and sentiment are on Nestabilities.

I've just realised this card fits the Allsorts Challenge 56 which is to use lace and/or buttons

Cat Bringing Flowers

This quick card is made using another of the LOTV stamps coloured using Polychromos pencils.  Background paper is from K and Co with faux stitching added by pen and some flowers built up from various hand made paper flowers from my stash.

Sending a Message

Last week Lili of the Valley brought some new stamps and I have to confess - I was tempted.  This card uses one of them, coloured with Polychromos pencils. Background paper is from a My craft Studio download and the message was also made using MCS. The corners are a combination of SU punches and Sizzix dies.

Another Bird Card

Today's offering is the other card which I made from an image stamped during a crafting session with a friend (Stampin Up).  Again it was just black on white card and I used ink from another kaleidocolour ink pad dabbed onto a craft sheet and spritzed with water before 'mopping up' with the stamped image.  This one is a much more vibrant colour than the other one I did, background paper is by Artylicious and I added some flowers from Vintage Vogue stamp set.

Scheduled Posts

I think I may have cracked the problem of the scheduled posts not working by changing something in the settings to 'update editor' which is said to be an improvement on the original editor so I will give it a go.  At least now I seem to have an option to actually choose 'scheduled post' which didn't appear in the editor I was using previously which only gave me an option to change the date and time which as you know wasn't working for me because despite making changes to the date and time the post either published immediately or was saved as a draft.  Anyway here goes and hopefully you will see this on Tuesday morning!!

This is a new home card which is another category which was a bit short in my box of cards.  The image was stamped on watercolour paper with Adirondack dye ink and then brushed using a water brush to give a  monochrome watercolour effect. Background paper was printed from My Craft Studio and the sentiment was also made in the same programme to a suitable size to be cut out using Nestabilities.  I added some ribbon and matching butterflies made using X-cut punches.

Baby Girl Card

Well it seems as if my attempts to do scheduled posts are doomed to failure - no idea what I might be doing wrong so probably won't bother again!! Today's offering is another baby card to fill a gap in my stock of cards, this time using a stamp by Forever Friends coloured with Polychromos pencils. image is mounted onto a Nellies die cut shape, wording is on a Spellbinders die and the corners are made using a Sizzix die - background paper is from Stampin Up (I think).
