Bargain Stamp

I bought this lovely tulip stamp by Dovecrafts reduced to £1.

I coloured it with Promarkers and used a Spellbinder die to cut and frame it. It also has an acetate cover which you can't see in the photo. The card is SU.
Here's 2 cards I made yesterday. I bought the lovely SU stamp set (Punch Potpourri) when I was at Doncaster as I already had all the relevent punches, but I have only just got round to using it.

Thanks for popping by,

Totally Sentimental

I thought I'd enter the Joanna Sheen blog challenge today  which is Totally Sentimental. I kept the card fairly simple as I felt the sentiment was the most important part of the card.

 Most of the materials are - Craftwork Cards - backing paper, scalloped circle and candi.
The backing butterfly is SU and the top layer is X cut. All finished off with some self-adhesive pearls from my stash.

Cased from....

Here's a card I've just made which I cased from a card made by Jules (Always With A Heart) which you can find here.

I didn't add a sentiment as I have been asked to make some 'any occasion' cards and thought this would fit the bill.

Color Throwdown

No your eyes are not deceiving you, I am posting again in less than 24 hours!
I came across this challenge at Color Throwdown where I decided that the unusual colour combo was definitely 'different' and it certainly took me out of my comfort zone. I'm not 100% sure about my card so see what you think.

The colour combo is Basic Grey, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla and Pumpkin Pie.

LIM One Layer - Fur or Feathers

Just thought I'd have a quick go at this week's LIM challenge, although these things are never as quick as they seem by the time I've finished deliberating.

I first embossed the label shape using my nesties and then  stamped the cute bird stamp (which was a magazine freebie) using SU Night of Navy and the SU sentiment stamp from Happy Moments (discontinued) also in  Night of Navy. I finished by giving the bird a tiny clear bling eye which is difficult to see on the pic but just gives it a finishing touch.
