Little Indians

I was recently trawling through my digital photos and found these photos of three of my kids taken in Gardaland two years ago. The layout designed itself from there. The fourth little Indian wasn't with us so I couldn't continue with the rhyme.

The printed papers are scraps that I had left over from some other LO's of that trip . The plain card stock is Bazill I think. The numbers are Thickers and the text is Mini Marks. The rub-ons are K & Company.

I hope you like it. Please leave some feed back if you like the blog I love to know what people think of my work.

Knight in shining armour

I made this card for my nephew Max. He will be 6 soon. I used papers from the Once Upon a time stack from DCWV. I cut the image out, tinted it and highlighted with white Sakura pen. The alphas are grungeboard, inked and heat embossed. I am quite happy with this one, although not quite sure if it isn't a bit dark for a small boy.

Papertake Weekly Challenge

I have decided to do a scrapbook layout for the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week. I have been too busy recently to do any scrapbooking, so I going to try to do at least one a week for the next couple of months.

I used some cream and raspberry cardstock as my base and added some patterned paper (from SEI I think), a pink tag edged with pine needles distress ink, some cut out flowers and chipboard numbers finished with crackle paint. I hope you like it.

Inspirational Card Sketches DT call

This is my entry for the design team call.

I have used a piece of K&Company pink paper onto which I have layered bronze embossed paper, lace and other ribbons. I have then topped the image with a piece of 6x6 paper which I cut to make a frame. The alphas are metal and have been coloured using alcohol inks in gold and espresso. The tag was distressed and embossed using distress embossing powder. The flowers are punched coloured and layered to add the final touch.

I hope you like it.

Inspirational Card Sketches

Inspirational Card Sketches ICSketches#15. The Card is made using some papers from my stash and a piece of hand distressed paper cut into an oval and stamped with one of my lovely leBlanche foam botanicals stamps. The embellishment is grungeboard and the flower was made from various punched flowers. This was a lovely sketch to use.

This card was created for the Pink Elephant challenge TPE#13, Scallops and circles. As you can see I have taken the circles idea to heart. I have used Amy Butler papers from K&Company on a gate fold card.
