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.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy 110 - Embossing/red

The challenge at Digi Stamps 4 Joy for March is use embossing and main colour red.

I have managed to layer Penny's cloths onto to Paper Doll Penny.  Cut her out, coloured with red markers and then layered her onto a red oval I have embossed with Cuttlebug dots embossing folder.
Then layered that onto white card which I embossed with Cuttlebug daisies.  Layered all onto red card.  Printed sentiment and cut out.  Sponged with distress ink and layered on the top.
(6 layers)

You can buy Penny and these clothes here:
There are also some other clothes for her
