Sweet Ebony Art

I think these Sweet Ebony Art stamps are my all time favourites, they are great to use and I love colouring them in. I have made this card ready for a friends birthday. The pictures aren't that great as the light is so poor here today, the rain is definatly on it's way!!

The paper I used for this card is from K&co and I bought the stamp from Funkykits. The flowers are Primas and the Circle greeting is from SU and the Demo I buy my SU products from is Julie (she provides and excellent service and is always happy to help so take a visit to her blog)
To colour the image I have used my Whisper pens.

I hope you all have a great weekend. I intend to get some time to craft this weekend all going well.

3D Card

I seen the Tutorial for this card on Splitcoasters and decided to give it a go. As I didn't have the SU punches that I needed I decided to use my Nestabilities to cut the apertures, which seems to have worked quite well. You can't really see the total effect in these pictures, but the finished result is a 3 dimentional card. I also added a piece of acetate for create a window on the front.
sSorry about the photos but I had to take them under my daylight lamp and the flash of my camera keeps showing up on the acetate.

The colours I have used are pastel and bright Pink. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Hurray a card at last!!

Hi all, hope you are having a good day. I finally have a card to share today. I made this card using one of the gorgeous Sweet Ebony Art stamps from Funky kits. I thought I would use a different colour scheme as I always tend to use pastel pinks and Lilacs. I love the way this card has turned out and will proberly be using Browns a little more often.

I have posted both pics as one came out too dark and the other too light!!

Papers - Papermania
Image - Sugarnellie
Oval - CWC
Flowers - Prima
Leaf punch - Woodware (Grass)
Coloured using Whisper pens.

Bad BAD Blogger!

Sorry I have not been around for ages. Before Christmas everything was a little hectic here and then I caught the Flu bug that has been going around and have had it for the last few weeks. My apologies to my blogging friends as I never got around to posting any Christmas cards with feeling so ill. Also thank you to everyone that sent me a christmas card, they were all gorgeous and much appreciated.

I hope everyone is well, I have been visiting all your blogs just haven't got round to leaving comments. Hopefully now I am feeling a little better normal service will resume!

By the Way Happy New Year to you all. I hope everyone is ok and hopefully everyone enjoyed their christmas break.

Hopefully will be back with a card Later
