For you with Love Mingle

This card was made for another group I belong to,
It was for a Sketch/ script Challenge, Mingle.
Mine was posted as far away as Turkey.
Arrived in one piece, thank goodness.

Inside my Little House card

This is the Inside of my Little House card.
 It involved a lot of searching and cutting out,
 But it was good fun.
I Made this Little House card for a Mingle swap. The person I sent it to said they really liked it.

Babette

Ooh, La, La. the very cheeky Dancer. Babette is her name.
It is made by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Coloured with Copic pens,adding a Purple feather for fun.
I made these 3 ATC's to send to my partner for the Month of August.
We send 3 each to a different partner, so it is always a lovely surprise when you get some in return.
The one in the centre is a Sugar Nellie, the other two are from Prints.
I hope my partner will like them.

Fashionable Ladies

I made these three ATCs for a swap.
Fashionable Ladies, The centre one is a stamped Image, the other two and prints.Then added some tiny feather pieces, and some gems.

Wednesday, 4 August 2010

This is an ATC I made using 2 free stamps from Craft Stamper.
I think the eyes are Beautiful, and the flower with pinting on very handy.

I stamped the flowers with Iris Stazon Ink, in the centre, I used the micro beads.
IOn the lashes I used a little Glitter.

Bathing Belle

Another  Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp.
This beauty is Florence, I cannot imagine sitting on the beach at the moment, it is cold here.
Again I have used the Copic pens, but the background behind Florence is Chalk, using a cloud template
 on a white Nestability, the swirl is a Die, my friend kindly cut some out for me.

Eleanor


Still not managing to get out and about, I have managed to have a play with some new stamps.
Never thought I would ger hooked on CUTE.
These stamps print up so well it is a pleasure to work with them.
They are Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

This little Cutie is Eleanor.
Coloured, of course with my favourite Copic Pens.
When my friend came to visit, she very kindly gave me a lesson.
Like everything it takes time.

Back Pages

The back 2 pages of my Screen Mingle. I did enjoy making this mingle. 

Screen Ladies

Page 3 and 4 from my Screen Mingle.
Again using the lovely Vintage pages.



Also some small lace pieces and a few bellies, and some bling.

Screen Mingle

Page 1 and 2 of my screen pages.
It is not a stamping group, so it was nice to use some lovely Vintage pictures, Lace trimmings and some bellies.
I Love the colours and the very beautiful Ladies.
These are the front and back pages I made for a screen Mingle on another group I belong to.

I have never made one before, so I must admit it did take me some time to get the correct measurements.
Not very good at folding either, so it was a big challenge for me.

Using a lovely flowery background Paper.
Also a lovely silky looking paper used through the Cuttle Bug.
Coloured the stamp using my Copic Pen's.

Delight


This is a Card I made for a swap
It is a removable Bookmark, the samp stamp is underneath the bookmark, so it is not just a blank card.
I know the Lady who received it liked it, saying it reminded her of her Granddaughter.

Rock Chic


I just luv this rock chic stamp from Sugar Nellie.
A bit like me as a teenage rebel when we had the Mod's and Rockers.

Terrace house


This is the front of a Terrace House card I made for a swap.
It was good fun, once I got started.
It has an Inside, and a back wall.

ATC,s


Some new ATCs made, I have tried different types.
If it is for a swap, I mostly make 3 the same.
Makes it easier for the person in charge of the exchange.

Opening Night

This is a beautiful stamp by Stampsmith, called opening Night.
It is sometimes very hard to get a good impression, you really need to use card with a sheen.
The swap was to use some lace, I think I will add a little more to the top.
She is so beautiful.

Zig-Zag card


I made this card for a swap.
It was a hard challang, there is Acetate covering the whole card.

We both belong to a group making ATC,s
