Sentimental Sundays 76: anything goes (plus a sentiment)

Joy to the world

This is for the sketch for Your next stamp 52:

I've used the lovely Clarity stamp inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver - on to a piece of purple card from my offcuts box - all other pieces were also from scraps, with the addition of the ribbon with gems.

Pink notebook

This is one of the notebooks I altered for my sale on Saturday - papers are from offcuts (originally with a Making Cards magazine). Fairies and stars are glittered 3D stickers.

Colours prompted by Cupcake inspirations 131 (not the green though):


This is for:

Hooked on craft 9: anything but a card
Sparkles forum 21: something that sparkles
Simon says: sparkle and bling
Secret crafter Saturday 155: anything goes as long as it sparkles

Lexi 50: pink for boobies
Digistamps4joy 29: think pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
My Sheri crafts 70: think pink
Di's digis: girly creations
Hiding in my craft room 15: super scraps Saturday - still using scraps, but the box never gets anywhere near empty!

Hang on in there!

Cats seem to be taking over my blog today - lol! This is the third card today featuring a feline friend ... and there might even be more to come!

This time the card is for Paper pretties Wednesday sketch 174:

The paper at the top is BG cupcake 'mac and cheese', the large bloom is one I've had for ages, the images are PB stickeroos and the sentiment is computer generated and printed. The image is mounted on to a nestie die cut.

I hope that this flower is something like a calendula for Daring cardmakers: October flowers (I googled and there seemed to be orange calendula).

Don't know why the sentiment looks ragged on the photo, because it doesn't irl - and they say that the camera never lies!

Cat nap

I made a similar card to this a while ago and someone bought it at my Tearfund sale and asked if I could do another like it - the original one was pink, but I only had a green one left, so here it is - it's a Kanban decoupage topper kit called 'cat nap'.

This is for:

Bling it on: no patterned papers
Craft room: featuring felines
Crafty boots: zoo or animal theme
Raise the bar: furry friends
Crafty purple frog: lots of layers

Scared-y cat!!

This is for the sketch for Cat's corner challenge 60 (which must include a cat):

Papers are all from my scraps box - I know that the black and white spots is Basic Grey and the striped paper is DCWV, but I haven't got a clue where the background cat paper came from.
The images are Penny Black Stickeroos - I think they are cute.
