Touch of Nature.....again

Another card from the Touch of Nature stamp set, really love this set there is so much you can do with it....mmm think I ought to try some pastel colours now!!

Touch of Nature

I've been playing with one of my new SU Stamp Sets 'Touch of Nature but only managed to get one simple card completed!
I've used SU card Chocolate Chip, certainly celery and Pretty in Pink. Stamped and bleached the flowers, after seeing Enda's article in Craft Stamper it reminded me that I hadn't used bleach for a long time.

I bought a Goodybag yesterday at Farnborough from Craftwork cards, it contained 40 cards & envelopes plus lots of papers, flowers, marshmallows (round embelishments) sentiments, frames & ribbons. Just had to have a play before packing up for the day, a very handy pack to have if you need to make a card in a hurry!!

Another 'Bloomin' Flower

I still have some images left from the 'Bloomin with Beauty' stamp set that my friend Janet very kindly let me borrow, really think I ought to buy this set!!
Purple cards.....well don't we all just love that colour. Have used the SU scallop punch as well at the circle nesting punches.

Thanks for looking, Anne

Picking Apples

Had a lovely day yesterday at the Farnborough Craft show, bought a few new 'goodies' and thought I would try out one of the new stamps that I bought, its called 'Picking Apples' by Elizabeth Bell. There are a few more of her stamps that I would like, they are so 'cute' and this one is very 'girly'.
The backing paper is from one of the SU designer paper sets, the green card is also SU, Certainly Celery, I've painted her with watercolour pencils, used a Prima flower and pearl gems in the corners .
Hopefully tomorrow I wont feel so tired and will be more productive!!

Another 'Cutie'

Discovered this stamp at the back of the drawer but didn't realise that I still had it, I must have bought this stamp about 9 years ago, but haven't used it for such a long time, so whilst making the Valentine card I quickly stamped an image and coloured it......It's one of those stamps that makes you go 'ahhhhhh' don't you think? That's if you like 'cuties' of course!

Valentine 'cutie'

Our 'homework' card for club this month is of course a Valentine - found this stamp in my 'cuties' box it's called 'So glad to catch you' so I just had to use it.
This card is actually for my grandson Charlie, I send him a card every year, I think by now he might guess who sends them!!..'........ suppose I had better start thinking about a card for my hubbie..

Prick 'n Stitch

This card took me forever to do and I'm so pleased it's finished!
I used an Ornare pricking template and then stitched it using metallic rainbow thread, used a silk flower in the middle and added a metal flower brad in the centre. It will be a long time before I do another one...ha..ha

Shrink Plastic

These are the shrink plastic sample cards that we are doing as one of our projects at the Crafty Bunch club meeting next Weds.

The girls have a choice of either doing the dragonfly, Daisy cat or the Daisy flower. They only have 1 hr to complete each project so we try to keep it nice and simple as it nice to take home a completed card. We hope by Wednesday the awful snow and ice will have gone!

Also I've used up some of my 'strips of card that have been laying around in my 'bit' box.

A 'Bloomin' image

This Z-card should really be photographed open but the battery is down on my camera so have just done a quick scan of it. I've used stamps from both 'Bloomin with Beauty' and Touch of Nature.
