My Craft Room

Over the past week or so I've been spending a lot of time getting my craft room together, I used to make cards on the table in the living room but I was accumulating too much stuff to keep downstairs, so I had to move it all upstairs. I must admit its nice to have a tidy living room again! The room was already painted pink of course ;) I don't think it will ever look this tidy again!!

Creative Card crew Challenge 12 - Pretty Flowers

Here's my entry for this weeks Creative Card Crew Challenge . The big flower and the background are stamped and to finish off Ive just added some ribbon and card candy alongside the sentiment. Thanks for setting the challenge CCC!

Green Challenge

Here's my card for the MSE Green challenge, I've combined this with an order someone gave me as I'm busy busy busy at the moment! The background paper was very kindly given to me by my lovely friend Mandy :) The Cars are decoupaged and the birthday boy message is stamped and embossed.

Creative Card Crew #9 - Everyone Emboss

Here's my entry for this weeks Creative Card Crew challenge, to use embossing. I hope this counts as I've done heat embossing for my entry? The flowers are stamped in pink ink and embossed with pink powder, so is the Just For You sentiment. The background paper is papermania and I've attatched some acetate on top of my embossed flowers image with some eyelets :)

One Stop - Sketch Challenge

Here's my entry for this weeks One Stop Challenge. I have used paper from Laura Ashley, some lovely pearlescent white paper and a decoupaged pansy. The stamp is from Docrafts Creativity Magazine and the tiny pearls are from my stash. Thanks for setting the challenge One Stop :)

Sketch Saturday challenge 49

This is my entry for this weeks challenge over at Sketch Saturday. I have used a Smirk stamped image coloured and blended with watercolour pencils. The Cupcake paper is also Smirk and the darker pink paper is Papermania. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft and the cupcake stamp is from Docrafts Creativity mag. And some glitter glue to finish off the cupcake icing :) Delicious!

Another Smirk! Card

I had a trip to the Paper Mill on Saturday and while I was there rooting around in their bargain bins I found this cute Smirk stamp for 99p! So of course I had to get it to go with my papers :) I also got the new issue of Docrafts creativity magazine which had some free clear stamps, which is what I've used for the Best wishes. Oh and I used my new Fiskars scallops border punch for the first time as well! This card makes me think of sweets when I look at it :D

Charisma Cardz challenge 17

Here's my entry for the Charisma Cardz challenge 17 - Thank You. I've used a Stampin up Thank You stamp, the main background is embossed with a cuttlebug folder and the other papers are random bits from my stash. Apologies for my wonky photo! Thanks for setting the challenge Charisma Cardz!
