50th Birthday

This months Craft Stamper Magazine features a wedding project using stamped backgrounds that are then run through a cuttlebug with an embosing folder, which I thought was really pretty, this is my version of the project using what I had, I think I would be happier with it if I had cut down the main image to a square and done it as a landscape card, what do you think?

April Calender Challenge

Easter is back where it should be in April 2009, and I decided to do an Easter bonnet theme, this one is a bit more 'me'

The background is a lace vellum, but it doesn't show up very well here, the flowers down the side are the new Laura Ashley collage stamps, I used chalks to colour the main image, and peel-offs for the Easter eggs, oh and a bit of fluff for her collar.

March Calender Challenge

I was thinking Mother's day, and after craft shopping what's closest to a girl's heart?

I have used two ready-made embelisments for this one and one handmade, the background is a dreamweaver blossom stencil, I then masked the 'shop front' and used distress ink to make the spotlight effect. A bit of a different project for me, but I enjoyed it.
