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.

Sweet Pea Stampers challenge Sparkle and Shine

The new challenge for 11 October at Sweet Pea Stampers is Sparkle and Shine

This is the card I made for the design team

I embossed black card with Christmas stars and added glitter and rhinestones. Left overnight for the glitter to dry.  When dry layered onto yellow card (The yellow is brighter than the scan).  Printed out Sweet Stamps
digital stamp by Ching Chou Kuik "Moon Fairy" and coloured her with markers. Used yellow glitter pen on stars and fairy wings,  Purple glitter pen on part of fairy dress and shoes.  Added Rhinestones..  
Unfortunately the glitter doesn't show up in scan.

Moon Fairy is available as a rubber stamp and a digi stamp

There is another Moon Fairy stamp by Meredith Dillman.

Please go over and have a look at the lovely cards by the design team.  It was week B's turn this week, I am in team A but I love the Sweet Pea stamps so I often make a card for the week B team.

You don't have to use a Sweet Pea stamp to join the challenge but if you do you have an extra chance to be a winner.

Scroll down to a further post on my blog to see the prize for my 100 followers comments.
