something beginning with R at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there - well another fortnight has rolled around and its Christmas card club again. This time the theme is something beginning with R. I have gone for Robin and made 4 cards using a Chocolate Baroque stamp.

I have coloured the stamped image simply in clean colour pens and mounted on red mirri card.
Mum used a new image from HobbyArt and went with the theme using Red as her R.

Thats a lovely stamp isn't it?
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday - I am at work all day but will get time to craft this evening!

Autumn magic at Countryview Challenges

 Hello there! 

Our new challenge at Countryview is now hosted over on facebook - but I am still blogging my makes over here.

This time I have made a card using Lavinia stamps which are sold on Countryview Crafts.

I used spiced marmalade and other distress inks to create this card plus a few different colours of versfine clair inks. The stamps are all Lavinia. I did the orange circle first, then stamped the fairy and did a little faux bleaching on the fairy.
Hope you have a great day!

I used an older TH layering stencil that I purchased many years ago from Countryview Crafts.I couldn't find it but you'll find layering stencils Here . The main image is Gus from Lavinia who you can find here.
I used the stencil with distress ink including barn door, spiced marmalade and wild honey
Hope you have a great day!

Christmas in the forest at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there! Well its been a full fortnight since I last posted on here and I am back again with Christmas card club - the theme this fortnight is Christmas in the forest. I have made 4 cards of the same theme. I used a stamp from Hobby Art and coloured in using clean colour pens then matted on red mirri card.

Mum made two different cards - the first using HobbyArt.

The second card is made using a sweet poppy stencil and Card -io stamps.

I think they're both great cards - well done mum!
Hope you have a great Sunday!
