Beautiful Bride

I have gotten so behind in sharing my cards on here and on my Facebook page! No excuse really other than work has been really busy with it being the end of year - loads more paperwork at the end of the school year - and my laptop power pack blew up, literally with sparks all over, so it was out of action for a few days until I could get a new one delivered. I tell you these are not cheap - almost £100 for one from Dell! Luckily the other one was only 2 months old, so I will get a refund on that one.

Anyway here is a card I made for the Cute As A Button June Progressive Challenge (yep it's that late!), but I never got round to posting it in time for the challenge. My TA is getting married this summer (and is leaving as her husband to be has got a new job in Reading), so I made her this huge card for everyone to sign. It certainly was a labour of love and with the box, it took me 5 hours in total! So much trial and error for the size of the card and box, but it did come out pretty i…

Something Else on Saturday #18 Featuring Wryn's Glasses from Tiddly Inks

Good morning and welcome to my post for this week's Something Else on Saturday feature! I am really enjoying doing these posts at the minute as I am using loads of different stamps, both rubber and digi, that I haven't used before! A great way to make sure I do actually use them!

This week I went a bit nautical and coloured Wryn's Glasses form Tiddly Inks in a blue and white sailor dress. I used my Seashore patterned papers and sentiment stamps, but I just couldn't find any embellishments at all in my stash. Nautical is not a theme I usually do, so I doubt I have any anywhere anyway!

Stamps: Wryn's Glasses from Tiddly Inks, Seashore from Joy Crafts
Papers: Marina Mist (Retired) & Whisper White both from Stampin' Up, Seashore Paper Bloc from Joy Crafts, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty

Faery Ink inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink for today. This time I have used the gorgeous Dance of the Butterflies from the Pretty Girls with Wings and Things Vol 2 Colouring Book.I have a thing at the minute for orange, which is so not like me at all, but I love this combo of orange and black together.

Something Else on Saturday #17 Featuring Priscilla from LeAnn's World 101

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday! Today I have used the adorable Priscilla from LeAnn's world 101 which I chose as part of my winning prize for a challenge blog ages ago. I always feel guilty if I don't use the images I have won and this one has been coloured up for ages, so I thought it was time to put her on a card, an all pink one too! I haven't done an all pink card for ages!

Scrapper's Delights New Release Chibi Graffiti Bill

Good evening and welcome to my post for the new releases from Scrapper's Delights. I am using the fun Graffiti Bill and the wall background. I added the Happy Birthday sentiment to the wall, so it would look like he had just sprayed it!

As it is quite a large image, I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and just added a touch of ribbon in the corner as I didn't have any dark blue baker's twine, which would have worked better I think.

Something Else on Saturday #16 Featuring Donut Treats from Mama Elephant

Good Morning and welcome to my Something Else on Saturday post this week. Today I am sharing this cute stamp set I bought a while ago and just coloured up for the first time! This is Donuts Treats from Mama Elephant - aren't those mice just adorable?! Not sure I want them in my doughnuts (donuts!) though. I really don't understand UK English spellings sometimes - surely donut is easier to spell than doughnut!

Anyway here's the card! I went for a pink, yellow and chocolate colour combo using one of my favourite patterned paper sets!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Steampunk Mermaid Destiny

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink. This week I am sharing my card using the gorgeousSteampunk Mermaid Destiny. I actually bought a new die set and matching steampunk themed papers for this image, but ended up printing her a little too large for you to see most of the one sheet of patterned paper I used. She was too big to add anything more!

Anyway here she is.... isn't she stunning?!

Something Else on Saturday #15 Featuring Fairy Lily from Make It Crafty

Good morning and welcome to this week;s Something Else on Saturday post. Today I am sharing one of the gorgeous flower fairies from Make It Crafty that I bought on the day of their release, but have not yet used! (I say that far too often as well!)

This gorgeous girl is Lily and I decided that peach is a colour I don't often use, so coloured her dress in this gorgeous peachy-orange colour! It may be a bit more orange than peach, but I still love this colour combo! Seems like ages since I added flowers to a card as well!
