About Me

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.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.

Autumn kraft card

Time for another challenge at the Sweet Pea Stampers blog.  We would like you to use kraft card or paper on your project.
You don't need to use a Sweet Pea stamp but we love it when you do.  If you use a Sweet Pea stamp you could win 3 Sweet Pea stamps.  If you don't use a Sweet Pea stamp and you card is picked by the random generator you will receive 1 Sweet Pea digi stamp.
The lovely Sweet Pea stamps and digi stamps are available here
This is the card I made for the design team this fortnight
I have printed out a piece of Create With TLC "Fashionable Fall" digi paper and embossed it with Cuttlebug "Leafy Branch" embossing folder.  Sponged over with "Wild Honey" Distress Ink and layered onto Kraft card.  Printed out Sweet Pea digi "Autumn Breeze" by Ching Chou Kuik and coloured her with markers.  Layered her onto kraft card and then onto the Autumn paper. Stamped Stamp World "Best Wishes" onto kraft card and punched out with scallop circle punch.
I hope you will go over and have a look at the other lovely projects by the design team and join in our challenge this fortnight.

I would also like to enter this card into the Sweet Pea September challenge Autumn colours: brown, yellow, orange and brown.
