A White Winter!

Good Morning!
I thought I better share something with you all today that was more my usual style seeing I have shown a lot of C&S cards over the past few days. I can safely say this card is definitely not that!

I have used one of the older Magnolia Stamps (of which I have for sale on my selling page above) and one of the Christmas Sentiment Die Cuts from the new T.Holtz Thinlits set that I couldn't resist getting last week. I also found some silver fabric stars in my stash and decided to give them a bit of a makeover with some Distress Paint to add the white shabby look!

Totally Gorjuss - Show A Feather!

Good Morning!
Before I start I'd just like to quickly mention that I added MORE ITEMS to my Craft Items for Sale page yesterday, so if you fancy a bargain take a peek!

This week's challenge at the TOTALLY GORJUSS CHALLENGE BLOG is 'Show A Feather!' As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly what to use, I hadn't used my feather stamps for almost a year so it was a good excuse to dig them back out!

I decided to go for a C&S style to keep all the focus on the delicate feathers. I also used the Technique of 2nd & 3rd Generation Stamping which is where you carry on on stamping a second and third time without re-inking the stamp. Resulting in a gorgeous faded effect.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
SIMON SAYS STAMP & SHOW - O IS FOR ... 
OMBRE & ODD NUMBERS
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - ONE LAYER CARD



INGREDIENTS -
Hero Arts Feather Stamp Set
Penny Black Sentiment Stamp
Silver Sprinkles by Doodlebug


INKS USED -
Archival Ink - Watering Can

... The Mice Are Taking Over!

Good Morning!
After sharing yesterday's trio of mice I couldn't resist making some more in the afternoon! I have used another small House Mouse stamp, this time adding a bright colour scheme and varying the size of the embellies. I know it's not much of a change but it was nice to give them a little bit of a difference. I have also used the same sentiment on all 3 cards.
I do hope you don't find these cards boring seeing as they aren't my usual style!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
O IS FOR ... ONE LAYER CARDS
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - ONE LAYER CARD
