Cute Dragon

This sweet little dragon was something I created for my boys to give my husband for an early Father's Day. With moving so close to Father's Day I thought the gift I'd bought might go astray and so we decided to celebrate early. I used a stamp that I bought in Britain 2 years ago. It is from a company called 'Little Pink Gem' and has really cute clear stamps

I enjoyed using my Prismacolors again to color in the image and it was easy to find colors to match the Fancy Pants patterned paper that I found in Archivers a couple of week ago.

Hope you are having a great week,

Stamps : Little Pink Gem (Dragon)
Paper : PTI Smokey Shadow and Vintage Cream, Fancy Pants 'To the Moon' DP

Kaisercraft Lilac Delight

This card was made for the Verve Friday challenge for May week 3 (I think) over on Splitcoaststampers.  I have not entered for a long time, but I was inspired when I saw all the entries while I was enjoying browsing the gallery last week.  Here is the sketch this is based on :

The patterned papers have been in my collection for quite a while now and they don't get used too often, even though they are some of my favorites.  The entire card uses Kaisercraft supplies apart from the ribbon and the base cardstock.

Simple Thankyou

This card is based on a very simple card that I saw last week.  I think there was a sketch somewhere, but I am not sure where I saw it now!  Anyhow, it was super easy to make - in fact I made two of them in different color schemes!

Short and sweet for today!

Plum Thankyou

I have now fixed the problem with publishing to my blog so hopefully I will be able to post here on a regular basis now.  It turned out to the something very simple in the end!

This card was inspired by browing Nichole Heady's blog.  She is the owner of PaperTrey Ink - it's a wonderful company and her blog is just beautiful.  You really should check it out.

I started with one of my favorite lavender colors and then added a complimentary raspberry color.  The flower in the center was created using a Heartfelt Creations set (stamped and then hand cut) and the leaves were stamped using the petals from the same flower.  Added a little extra detail with the scalloped border punch, some FlowerSoft in the center of the flower and then some KaiserCraft pearls for a finishing touch.

Hope that you are all having a wonderful week,

Stamps : Heartfelt Creations (Flower and leaves), Stampin'Up! (Sentiment and background)
Paper : SU! Pale Plum and Rich Razzleberry, PTI Vintage Cream
Ink : Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive
Accessories : SU! Organdy Ribbon and scallop border punch, KaiserCraft pearls, Flowersoft (toffee)

Mojo Monday - Let's try again!

Let's try again shall we! Blogger has been out of action for a few days now - on the one day I finally get back to making cards and using my blog again after 4 or 5 months absence. We are in the process of moving house and it has been so crazy with all the arrangements I have not had any creative mojo at all. When I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch though, I just had to participate and it was fantastic to get back into my craft closet again.

Here is this weeks sketch :

Archivers was calling my name again this week and so I went in and got some new patterned papers which also inspired me to begin making cards again. Our move will finally be complete by the end of June and it will all be worth it because my new house has a craft room - I get my own space with tons of storage and countertop space. Can't wait!

Have a great weekend!
