Penny Black Saturday week 103

The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday this week is In the Garden. I'd a few stamps to choose from but settled on this trailing clematis image from the flowers and wishes set. I stamped it out 4 times and used the extra set to 3d the flowers on the centre panel. The sentiment is from the Critter Party set.
The papers are by My Minds Eye from the Quite Contrary range, I thought the leaves on the green one fitted the challenge theme well.
Punch for the edging is by Fiskars and brads are from my collection.
Thanks for looking

Penny Black Saturday 102

The challenge at Penny Black Saturday this week is lots of dots so I hope that my dotty paper, brads and ribbon meet the brief. I also found this stickeroo with dots on the parcel for the Penny Black image.
So base card is Craftwork Cards, Papers are Basic Grey Blush collection (an oldie but a goodie), dotty and letter brads are all Queen & co and ribbon is American Crafts. Papers have been edged with Pearlescent Poppy Brilliance ink to pull it all together.
Thank you for looking

Sketch and stash take 2

Here's another card from the sketch and stash sketch. I coloured this owl oval in when I coloured the other oval in and as I liked the sketch thought I'd use it again.
Papers on this ones are Craftwork Cards Richie and Susie which I have inked around the edge with Graphite Black Briliiance Ink. Pink band of card is Bazzill, everything else is from my collection.
Only one piece of ribbon on this one, I wouldn't want to run out

Penny Black Saturday week 101

The Challenge over at Penny Black Saturday this week is flowers.

I have stamped Whispers onto Craftwork Cards Back to Basics card and paper pieced the image with Bloom and Grow Papers by My Minds Eye. Backgound paper is from the same range but has been overstamped around the edges with a flourish stamp, and the dotty vellum is also from Craftwork Cards as is the base card. Ribbon is from my collection, I think it might be Bo Bunny but I'm not 100% sure.

Same stamp

Here's a card using the same stamp as yesterday. I made this a little while ago and hadn't posted it so thought that I would share.
Papers are by Craftwork cards, I have overstamped them with one of their stamps in blue and also used this stamp around the image to pull it all together.
3 pieces of lace/ribbon and the flowers are Prima and some from my stash which have been coloured with promarkers.

Card for a mate

Here's a card I made last night for my friend to give to his colleague, or as he refers to her, his 'work wife'. I'd directed him to this blog and he liked the easel card from the Francoise class and this Sarah Kay stamp which I had used on another card so I have combined the two along with some My Minds Eye papers which were freebies in a mag and a few Prima flowers and sparklies.
I will now send him an e mail so that he can give it the once over.

Thought I didn't have anything new in the my pictures folder to post and then I remembered that I had uploaded the photos from my camera, they just needed cropping a bit.
So here's the card which I sent to my niece at the beginning of February.
Image is Funky Frames designed by Kay Carley coloured in with chalk pencils and set with chalk enhancer which had been languishing in the drawer unused for far too long, a little bit like the Crate Paper - Katrin which was used to embellish the rest of the card which pretty much as is usual came from Craftwork Cards
