Wow, another week has rushed by although I have only been in work for 2 days so can’t complain! I’m here with my card for Totally Gorjuss and this week our theme is ‘Anything Goes with Sparkle’ … sounds easy, right? Not so much for me as I don’t often add a lot of sparkly stuff to my cards, so here goes…
As usual, the stitching was done by hand and I stuck all the gems down one by one (very carefully!) then I added just a little extra sparkle to the flower centres with some Crystal Stickles.

Hurrah – I finally had time at the weekend to play with my new Copics and I love them! I did have to add in the odd ProMarker so I clearly need to buy some more colours 😉
I used a lovely image from LOTV to experiment with and made it up into this card for the Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge of ‘Spring colours.’ It is a bit of a late entry as the rubber stamp I wanted to use for the sentiment disintegrated as I stamped it so I had to rethink the arrangement of embellishments and it seemed to take me forever 😦
The stitching has been done by hand and the edges of DP have been inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap. Oh, and look, there is my favourite die of the moment again!
Here is a close up of the sweet image;

Today I have my DT card for Totally Gorjuss to share with you and the theme is ‘For Mum’ which of course ties in very neatly with Mothers’ Day tomorrow. This week we are sponsored by Crafters Companion so you will be spoilt for choice if you win!
I have used a new stamp from LOTV and isn’t this little bear a cutie?
Here is a close up of the image which I have coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and for once you can even see the Frosted Lace Stickles that I added to the flower centres !

Ok, I’m bored with this cold weather now and worrying if it is going to snow AGAIN 😦 Plus, it is really hard to take good card photos when it is so grey all the time so please forgive any slight fuzziness of the photos below!
The last card I blogged was intended for Dr Hubby’s Valentine’s Day card but I changed my mind, as is my womanly right 😉 I really wanted to ink up my new LOTV stamp and it made for a slightly more masculine card than the previous one.
I wanted to try something a little different so stamped the image onto Kraft card using brown ink then coloured it in with ProMarkers/Flexmarkers in shades of brown apart from the little bit of red for the flowers and balloon. Here are the cute couple in close up;
I folded the seam binding and stuck it down with little bits of double sided tape as I went and raised the image up slightly to give a little bit of dimension as you can see here;
The theme this week at Totally Gorjuss challenge is ‘Anything goes…with lace’ which is right up my street 🙂 I have used an old but fabulous stamp from LOTV and coloured it with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I added tiny spots of Frosted Lace Stickles to the bouquet wrapper but it is less sparkly than some Stickles so you can’t really see it unfortunately.
I have been busy creating some simple Christmas cards that I could easily mass produce so I wanted to do something that was a bit more effort, using my all time favourite LOTV Christmas stamp. I used pastel colours to fit the theme at Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge and this sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge as my layout inspiration;
I haven’t done many pastel Christmas cards but loved how this one came out especially with the edges distressed with sandpaper and some stitching.
I have used ProMarkers to colour the image; don’t you just love the sweet little bunnies all snuggled up in their stocking?!
I have yet another wedding card to share which was a bit of a last minute make; I knew the wedding was coming up but was being typically disorganised! I have used a digi stamp from the DigiStamp Boutique and coloured it with ProMarkers.
