A Little Asian Bug

Welcome!
 
 
 
 
Here is my card using the super cute Jewel Junebug Buggmee that I received as a freebie!!
 
 
I went across on top using a bow, pearls and ribbon!
BUT, I cannot resist glitter so I added some Diamond stickles to her wings.
Flowers finish the diagonal row.
The pearls look really pretty as flower centers.
 
This is much busier than my usual style, but I really like it.
 I suppose it's because it is Asian, as well as red, black & white!!

Never too Early!

Welcome!


It is never to early to start with Christmas Cards!

That is why I joined the Christmas Challenge at Digistamps4Joy!
 
Every month we will receive a fabulous freebie to create a card...can it really get better!

So just in time for this month, my silver & white card using the Jan Freebie!

 
This was so quick & easy that I'm going to use all the images I printed out to make some more.
 
Giving a pack of cards makes a thoughtful gift!
 
There is still time to join the challenge, but you must hurry!

Take Note of my New Toys!

Welcome!

I found another challenge blog : Open-Minded Crafting Fun

They have a mega first challenge! The theme is New Toy or New Technique.

I opted for the new Toy and made 2 little quick & easy CAS note cards!



My new toy is the background stamp, one of a set of 4 from Chiswick.

When I saw it, I had to have it. It is the perfect size for little cards, ATC's & tags. While browsing in the shop, I found the perfect partner for my stamp set, stickers from Upikit!

I stamped the background directly to the card using Victorian Velvet Distress ink. The green flowery heart sticker was layered on pink & green paper and added with dimension tape.

The blue background is the second impression done with Indigo Blue Impress Dye Ink. The sticker was added directly onto the card.

I really like the simplicity of the 2 note cards and the way the 2 inks changed the look of the background. I hope you like it too!

I'm also adding my 2 note cards to the Simon Says Monday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes! My little cards are perfect for this challenge, because any design or style or project can be entered!

Lil Frolic and friends

Welcome!

I was so delighted to find this challenge blog: Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog!
How did I miss it before?

But wait, the best is that I received this super sweet image: Lil Frolic & Friends to start me off.
She is really a little darling!




I coloured her in soft fun colours & added some Stickles glitter glue. The torn edges of the image and the card layers add some extra texture. My metallic pastels provided some shiny colour to the card.

I'm adding her to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge #24 - Anything Goes

Hope to see you there too!
