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.

As You Like It, Show us your style - Favourite type of stamp digi or rubber

The challenge at As You Like It is Favourite type of stamp digi or rubber (and why)

I have lots of rubber and clear stamps but I mostly use digi stamps now as they are easier on my sore hands and you can resize them to whatever size you want and if they are png stamps you can layer them onto digi backgrounds.
This card uses my favourite digi stamp which Amanda at Faery Ink Stamps made especially for me when I won her first blog challenge.  I told her my favourites were fairies and butterflies and she made a coloured digi  for me, plus my blog header and watermark on this card.
I have embossed mauve card with one of my favourite embossing folders "butterflies".  Added butterfly pattern paper and ribbon.  Printed out precoloured digi onto white card, cut with decorative scissors, coloured edges with purple marker and layered on top.  Added punched leaves, flowers, pearls, mushroom brad and butterfly brad.  All my favourite things.  Layered onto purple card (my favourite colour)

You can buy the black and white digi version of this stamp at the Faery Ink shop
or you can buy it as a rubber stamp at Sweet Pea Stamps

I would also like to add this card into the following challenges:
