I meant to post this one a while ago as I really loved watching the Great British Sewing Bea and am so glad it's coming back for a second series. I printed the digi paper directly onto a sheet of linen card and then cut it out into the cotton reel shape on my Silhouette.
Today would normally be my day for Whimsy Inspiration but due to my micro craft business taking up more of my time I'm just not able to make a card a week and comment on challenge entries so have sadly made the decision to resign.
I've also been using ready coloured images and my Silhouette machine a load more recently so I was over the moon when Debbie asked me if I would like to join the Papercreator Design Team especially as she is a licensed Sassy Cheryl reseller so I no longer have to struggle to her digis justice.
I've used Noah All Ears Kit to make my card and added some stars cut with a Sizzix Framelits die and Letters from a Whimsy Stamp set. I've printed Noah himself onto photo paper which gives him a tiny bit of shine
We have a new challenge starting today at Whimsy Inspires and it's a nice easy theme of anything goes. I've tried something different here today and printed my paper directly onto my card then cut it out to form the card base on my Silhouette. Fortunately my printer and I were friends when I made this one.
I've used one of this month's new releases called Gardening by Lia Stampz and added a stamped sentiment that I've had for absolutely ages. The button is a Sizzix Die cut.
I've been trying to use up digis that I've printed but just stuck in a pile although the sentiment stamp is a new one from Bo Bunny I bought mine from Cutting Edge crafts as they always have free P&P and have great prices too. The baby in a basket is by Cuddly Buddly
Hands up who has this really really old Anita's stamp? It's still great for effective wedding cards. I've cut the background here from My Minds Eye Bohemia paper using a background cut file from Birds Cards and just added some Meiflower pearls and a ribbon bow.
The vintage theme at Fussy and Fancy Friday this week was a real challenge for me - I don't know if this really qualifies but it's as close as I'm gonna get. The card base was a freebie from Birds Cards and the image was off the internet.
Please nip on over to see what the other talented ladies in our group have created for your inspiration
I've used Hot Air Balloons by Moon Cookie Gallery for my card today - there are actually 4 separate designs but I only had room for 3 here. The sentiment is also from Whimsy and is part of the Everyday mini Postage Stamp Set. The paper is an old offcut of a My Mind's Eye 12x12 sheet. I wonder if I can squeeze another card out of the left over bits lol!
Sometimes you just don't end up with the card you started off with. This was originally supposed to be a Teddy Bea card but I was having one of those days when nothing was coming out the printer the right size.
I printed this cute little Meljen's bear almost a year ago and finally coloured him during the week when I was throwing a hissy fit as the lawnmower wouldn't start (turns out you have to put petrol in the thing!).
The card base with the branch is from birdscards.com although I made my own flowers with my EK success punch and added a Whimsy sentiment.
Today is my Whimsy Inspires post and it also happens to be my ex-husband's birthday. I made tall child this card to send to him and will be buying socks etc for her to deliver next time she sees him as we live 150 miles away.
I've used Toy Plane by Lia Stampz this week which is available from the Whimsy Store together with all the other new releases. The letters were cut with the Sizzix Man Oh Man Alphabet die set.
