Suzie's 365 day 98: girly

A quick post to show some of my girly stamps for Suzie's day 98:


It couldn't be simpler

A very simple card using a recycled robin image matted on to a pieace of Wild Rose studio Traditional Christmas paper. I sometimes make some card from recycled ones because they can be sold cheaply when I have my sales to raise money for Tearfund.

The theme for Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge for tomorrow is 'anything goes', so I'm submitting this.

Recycled robin

This is a catch-up card for last week's Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge to use something recycled. The robin image was rescued from an old card, cut out with a Sizzix label die cut, with a surrounding one cut with red mirror card. The paper matted on to the gingham is My mind's eye snowed in winter. The robin is for:

Winter wonderland: robin redbreast
Cupcake craftroom April: bugs n birds n wings n things
Stamp, scrap & doodle: things with wings
Do you stack up 66: friendly critters

I've used the sketch for 2012 Christmas card challenges week 18:


The gingham background paper is from a Raspberry Road summer goodness pad, free with Quick cards magazine. This is for Christmas crafting for April 10: gingham Christmas.

The poinsettia stickers have been lurking at the bottom of my Christmas box for a long time, so it's good to find a use for them.

Pink and pearly

This is the other card that I made at yesterday's Stampin Up workshop. Each flower was stamped with one stamp and then another over the top using a stamp-a-ma-jig. I have to confess that when I got to stamping the flowers that needed to be cut out and raised over the others I decided to stamp freehand, which is why I've covered the centres now with some pink pearls to disguise a bit of a mis-placement!

Playing with ink and flowers

This is another card that I made yesterday at the Stampin Up workshop led by  Ruth .

Stamps and inks are Stampin up supplies - I used a script and a heart stamp randomlym using just edges of the heart stamp, both on the background, the inner raised card and the flowers and some random sponging too with the addition of a few pearls here and there. I love the combination of the aqua and purple - in fact purple is one of my favourite crafting colours, so this combo is for Sundays with Crissy 28: your favourite colour combo.

CHNC challenge 67: white Christmas

Saturday has come round once again with amazing speed, so it's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog. So for challenge 67 I'm asking for a card that depicts white Christmas in some way - you might want to go for a 'white on white' theme or a snow scene ... whatever 'white Christmas' makes you think of.

Challenge 67 is being sponsored by  Di's Digi Downloads  so I have used one of their images called  'to both of you', coloured it with copics and mounted on to white pearlised card which was then mounted on to a piece of white embossed with a dots embossing folder. The sentiment was computer generated and printed.


I'm entering this into the following challenges:
