Lili of the valley Mother's Day Card

After a very successful jaunt to the Craft show at the SECC, Glasgow last weekend, i managed to get my hands on some of the lovely new rubber stamps from Lili of the valley (14 new stamps,woo hoo!!), so watch this space space for lots of them appearing on some cards, a fabby selection of stamps, that cover loads of occasions

Decided that the lili of the valley  challenge was a must this week - the challenge was an Easel card, they are so popular at the moment and so easy to make. loved the little bear with the flower and thought he'd be perfect for Mother's day,so made my mum this card, paper is papermania forever friends pad, and image coloured with distress inks, added a little glitter to flower and butterflies,made up some paper flowers, which were also inked with the new spun sugar distress ink, stampin up sentiment and doodled some faux stitching aroung my image.  Hope Mum likes it!

This card fits a few blog challenges this week:-

Lots of mixed requirements this week, cupcake craft looking for lots of flowers - so this fits the bill, cute daisy may are needing a card for Mother's Day, LOTV asked for the ever popular Easel card style, the cute and girly is after something with spring colours, the cercret crafter have launched some new stamp designs and their challeng is anything goes, which  is also the same challenge over at ooh la la.

A selection of handbags i made for a class which i had last night - really easy to make but quite effective when finished, used a woodware cherry punch to make my flowers, which are quite dimensional, Stampin up oval stamp and matching punch used for the sentiment and fancy handle is courtesy of the Martha Stewart double border punch - everyone seemed to like making these and just in time for Mother's day too - would be lovely with miniature toiletries or some delish sweeties in them! Think i'll leave my samples lying around and MAYBE(doubt it) some of my cherubs will put something nice in them for me!

Made this card for a couple of challenges over on the docrafts forum - one was the Penny Black challenge which was to be spotty paper, PB animal image, and ribbon. the other challenge was the sunday stamping one and you were to stamp an image and decoupage it, stamped this lovely hedgie from the PB tiny wishes clear set 3 times and decoupaged it and added some glamour dust glitter,ribbon and sentiment - love the tiny wishes set as they are all a decent size

Some New Cards

Just made a few cards for fun - treated myself to the new cat stamp and thought i'd have a play - made this card for a friend i haven't seen in a wee while, just to let her know that i was thinking of her.
