Feminine 2

Time for some mid month inspiration at Stamping Sensations, the design team have some lovely samples on the challenge site.

For my card I have used a Crafty Individuals stamp which I have had for some time, using up some more papers from my stash which never seems to go down ! Looked  abit plain so added some ribbon and a few card candies

Its all Green !

The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday starts today. The theme this time is to use all green or use something recycled.  I thought it was an easy choice to go for the green but there are so many shades of green and not all of them blend together well.  I found this butterfly die which I don't think I've ever used and cut it from a piece of card I had coloured with distress inks , even though I used the same two inks on the mat and the little butterflies they look an entirely different colour.  The design team have some lovely inspiration over on the challenge site so hope you will pay them a visit.

Show some love

The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday asks us to "show some love".  I was a bit stumped with this one as I don't do Valentine stuff but when I started looking through my stamps I actually found quite a few I could use, finally settled for Ginger and Fred Mo Manning stamp, I think it makes a lovely anniversary card for an older couple, used up a bit more DT paper from stash and a couple of die cut hearts.  The design team have some fab inspiration for you over on the challenge site.

Make It Feminine

The new challenge at Stamping Sensations is Feminine. We are sponsored this month by Bee Crafty who is a card making, rubber stamping and scrapbook supplies shop.

 JMC Designs. All images are hand drawn by Julia McNeill, an artist who lives in the north of Scotland

For the first card I have used a very old Papermania stamp set for the flower and text, background done with brusho and a bit of stencilling. I am trying to use up some DP and the background is a piece from my stash. The butterflies are a little freebie stamp and I've no idea where it came from.

My second card is using a digi stamp called  Cosmo Polly from JMC designs,
coloured with Copics and again using some background papers from my stash.
