Leaves of the season

 Hi all,

I have made two cards using a leaf stamp from a set.

This first card I inked one of the leaves from the stamp using yellow and orange inks. I stamped this in each of the four corners of the card and then added a die-cut, foiled sentiment to the centre.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
AddictedtoCAS #195 flower

For this second card, I used a stencil with browns, blues and orange inks to make a patterned bottom panel. I then used a border sticker across the top of this. I stamped the leaf and stem image onto white card and fussy cut before adding to the card base. I then added a chipboard flower to the top of this.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
SOS #443 plant life

I would like to add the pair into the Twofercardchallenge #37 Leaves and 613AvenueCreate #4 In the garden.

Paper piecing @ I Love Promarkers

 We have a new challenge over at I Love Promarkers, with the option of paper piecing. Don't forget we do need to see your colouring on the image too! We are sponsored by IKEsART digis  for this challenge and I have used Quirky Parrot.

I paper pieced the head and tail and coloured the beak, eyes, feet and feathers with promarkers. I fussy cut the image and then layered onto a heat embossed flower background and stamped the sentiment in brown.

Birthday Bear

I have made a little CAS postcard that I wanted to share with you today.

 I used a patterned Christmas base card for this birthday postcard and covered the Christmas design with floral patterned paper. I then added some floral ribbon band and the forever friends topper layered over this. To finish I simply added a sentiment sticker topper from my stash.

However, here is my DT post for our new challenge that started yesterday over at Creative Moments. Our sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Morgans Artworld and I have used Fantasy Fae 61.

Bird Box welcome

 We have a new challenge started today at MAWTT blog, with the theme of birds/Animals.

I decided that as the blue tits in the garden are cleaning out my bird box, I wuld use an image I had on my computer of a bird with its home.

I embossed the front and then die-cut the centre out to make a frame for the bird. I used a stitched square die to also cut the bird out. I inked the embossed area with green distress ink.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Emergence of ribbon

 Hi all,

We have a new challenge starting over at I Love Promarkers, with the optional theme of use ribbon or twine. We are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps, and as it is getting warmer I wanted to make my card to celebrate the emergence of ladybirds once again! So I used ladybug.

I coloured her using promarkers before fussy cutting. I had a rainbow sunlight panel in my stash so I popped her on this. I then used a papermania nature themed patterned paper to layer this onto, using a strip of ribbon along the bottom of the panel. To finish I added some 3D ladybirds.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
