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.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

My card for Sunny Challenges No 42 for this week

This is my card that I just finished making for Sunny Challenges
We had to use the sketch below and the Baby Wipe Technique.  I have not used this technique before but looked up the Splitcoast Stampers site as mentioned by Kris.  I used both methods, the swiping option for the background and the stamping option for the Stampin Up flower which I stamped twice and punched out with the Stampin Up punch and layered.  Other stamps, punches and ribbon by Stampin Up.

This was the sketch

Thank you Gwen. I bought some of the pinks and purples reinkers when the colours were discontinued last year to have when my ink pads needed reinking. This is the first time I have used them. I don't have any other colours except for one red.
