Just for you

I made this card for Less is More #3 ~ One Layer and Spring Time

I stamped the daffodil stamp from Hero Arts and LOTV sentiment below the image and then cut to size. I coloured image with copics. I matted onto green gingham from Crafts Creations and matted onto pre - scored card. I need lots of practice for scoring the edges, lol.
Sorry for the bad photo as the scoring is not showing properly.
Thanks for visiting my blog

Secret Crafters Saturdays challenge #121 ~ stamped flower or digi

I distress edges of cardstock and Basic Grey papers with TH distress tool. My mini sewing machine is not working properly so I machined around the edges without thread and hand stitched it. I coloured Morning Glory image from A passion for stamps with copics and used Large Deckled rectangles nesties. Large butterfly punch from Dovecraft and mini butterfly punch from xcut. Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. Computer generated sentiment and circle punch. The tag I got donated and I cut it in half as hinges. Not sure of make of the tags maybe nesties.

A group of trees

I made a few attempts as the ink keeps smudging before I got it right so here is the card for Less is More challenge #2 ~ One Layer with a tree or flower.

I stamped a group of trees image from Crafty Individuals with JH distress ink in walnut stain and then I dabbled the sky ~ JH distress ink in faded jeans with cotton wool. LOTV sentiment stamp.

Teddy with gifts

LOTV stamp coloured with copics and Stickles 'Stardust'. I matted Dovecraft papers onto Gold mirror cardstock. I used last bit of ribbon from stash and nesties 'Blossom' also the largest tag from the multi tags punch stamped with LOTV sentiment stamp. I dabbled tag with TH distress ink 'Walnet stain'. I wanted to used the gold thread for the tag but I can't find it so I covered it instead.

Less is more Challenge #1

This is a new challenge 'Less is more' and I thought it would be a great challenge to make a simple card but oh my gosh its hard, it really is out of my comfort zone.

I searched for a suitable stamp and sentiment in my wee craft space. Eventually I found these stamps and I think I got them free from a magazine and I also add a bit of dovecraft ribbon. I coloured the flowers with copics.
