A card for Max

A lovely design from Cardmaking Paradise that I used to make for Max's 17th birthday. I used some DP for the M and then matched the colours for A and X. I sponged the edges with DI walnut stain, and the hung the numbers from the X. He was thrilled with it.

I am entering this at Allsorts for name or number, (I have used both)

Red, white and blue!

This week's challenge at Allsorts, is to use the colours of your flag, which is of course red, white, and blue

I have used  older SU stamps for the words and the yacht, but first I made a background by swiping on some dox faded jeans, and di weathered wood. I restamped the yacht on white card and paper pieced the sails. The white highlights on the water were with a white sharpie, and I also added a wee bit of glitter on the water. Mounted onto white and then a red card base.

Hi everyone. I am just sneaking in at the last minute with this entry for the Allsorts challenge which is for poppies.
I have used a lovely stamp from Crafty Individuals, and coloured it with copics and promarkers. I then trimmed it to size with my stitched rectangle die from Stamplorations The gold in the layered piece does not show up so well, but it looks very pretty IRL!
I can also enter at Paperbabe challenge, which is for flowers

Eiffel Tower

Hi everyone.

Birthday wishes

Hi everyone.
Another card to add today, as I have spent a few hours 'playing' in my craft room!

I have followed the sketch at Stamplorations, and also used warm colours - well you can't get much warmer than red!! The flowers are from a Stamplorations set, the words from a Paperbabe set, and all stamped with Versafine 'satin red' I added some washi tape, some white crochet cotton and 3 red gems. Then rounded the top corners and attached to a red card base.

Black, white and pink

Hi everyone.

Today's card uses a NBUS stamp which I bought at Michael's whilst I was in Canada visiting my daughter. I stamped with Memento 'tuxedo black' onto a snippet that I had diecut with stitched rectangles from Stamplorations. I  embossed the black piece with my cuttlebug, mounted onto a white base card, and added a pretty pink flower.
