Summer


Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

Today's card uses an old untitled Great Expectations stamp ( I din't think this company still exists, but correct me if I am wrong) I have coloured it with Smooches (red) anjd water colour crayons and added a little sentiment in the corner

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.
Challenges

Poppies

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
