July Challenge - Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

        Good Morning!

It's the first Saturday of the month so it's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE. This months challenge is 
'Anything Goes or Spots and/or Stripes!'
I played along with the Spots aspect of the challenge as you can see that there are some amongst the design paper design, stamped image (the pooch) and of course by adding a single embellishment in the top left corner. I have used one of my wooden PB Stamps that I don't think has seen ink in over 10 years! In fact I think it was one of the first that I bought when I first started cardmaking.

INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Stamps
Magnolia Papers
Star Embellishment from Prima & Ribbon from stash
Gold Doodlebug Sprinkles

Inky Butterflies

                Good Morning!

I hope you're all enjoying the sunny weather this week, it's flipping hot! It's my week off work next week and you can guarantee it'l end up raining no doubt now lol

Today I've got something a little different to share. I never seem to get around to using my Tim Holtz products so last weekend after making my previous card I decided it was time to get inky! I inked up my favourite stamp of his released years ago with a selection of distress inks and dug out some old dew drops from my stash in similar colours for a finishing touch.

June Challenge - Penny Black Saturday Challenge!

       Good Morning!

It's the first Saturday of the month so it's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE. This months challenge is 'Anything Goes or Transport!'
I decided not to play along with the optional theme this month for a change and instead created a card using one of the sweet older bunny stamps. I also thought I'd use a floral die instead of paper flowers for a change, it felt so strange! lol

The Happy Couple - Lili of the Valley DT

              Good Morning!
This month at LOTV we are celebrating their 18th birthday! I can't believe it's been that many years since the company began and it's been a joy to design for them over the last few years. One of the most iconic stamps by them was of a cute little couple getting married and this month both myself and the DT are all making a card each using an updated version of this to celebrate!

This one is called 'The Happy Couple' and isn't it sweet?!
