Use A Sentiment

This is a card I made using LOTV wedding stamp coloured with promarkers and LOTV sentiment stamp.  I cut out a circle from the front of a square card, stamped the wedding couple onto a circular piece of white card and matted this onto a fancy edged circle and then onto a lilac background.  I then added some flowers and die cut flourishes onto the front of the card.

I am entering this card for the LOTV June Challenge its all about the sentiment.


This card has been made with Sheena Douglas stamps which I bought at least a year ago.  I stamped onto Neenah card and coloured the hills and children on the jetty with promarkers.  I used Adirondack inks and a brush for the sky and water and decoupaged the little boat and used some glossy accents on the sales to make them stand out.  I would like to enter this card for the Summer Challenge at

Cards for Men

Cards for Men - I've been too busy in the garden and making cards to put anything on my blog for the last couple of weeks but here is a card I made for my Dad for his 89th birthday the other week.  I used one of the A1 Pilkington Transport Stamps for the topper, coloured in with pro markers.  For the background I used an embossing folder to emboss the circle pattern onto some card I found in my draw.  I used the Clarity word stamps for the Dad word and embellished with some string.

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen Fathers Day/Male Challenge
Ladybug June Challenge for the Men in your Life
Little Claire's Monthly Challenge Male Theme

Clarity Stamp Challenge - Guest Designer

I was so lucky to have won the Clarity Stamp Challenge in May and so pleased to be asked to design a card  for the June theme of Mr and Mrs.  I decided to make a wedding card using the wrought iron heart stamp which was one of the design club monthly stamps last year. I’ve used an 8 x 8 scalloped card blank and stamped the heart stamp randomly around a smaller piece of card with versamark, brushed over with milled lavender to get a resist effect and matted onto silver mirri.  I stamped the hearts twice onto Theuva card, embossed one in gold and one in silver and coloured in pinks and lilacs with promarkers.  I cut out the hearts and mounted onto a square of white and Miri card then mounted onto the card with silicone glue for a slightly raised effect.  I used the wedding word stamp with Versamark and silver embossed. Overall I am quite pleased with the finished card.
