Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.

My card for Lacy Sunshine challenge No 4 Layer it up

This is my card for Lacy Sunshine challenge No 4 - Layer it up

I used Lacy Sunshine digi stamp "Anastasia with poppies" by Heather Valentin (which Heather kindly offered as a free digi for this challenge) onto white card coloured skin with copic marker, hair with distress marker, yellow flowers with Sugarloaf Whispers Strokes marker and everything else with Tria markers and layered it onto pink card.  I cut a oval out of the poppy paper and layered it over the white card.  I printed  the flowers several times and layered them onto the stamp and around the oval.  Also layered the leaf and flower on the hat.  Stamped Stamp World "Best Wishes" and punched out with Stampin Up 7/8" scallop circle punch, coloured edge and use Martha Stewart punch to punch leaf. is the official and only authorized shop for Heather Valentin digital stamps and more.
