Just Add Ink Challenge #5

I made a card today as a thank you from my son's cricket team to their coach and decided to use the All in the Family stamp set and accessories. To add some dimension I used masking, dimensionals and crystal effects - nothing unique there, but I haven't used this set for a while and just by adding these techniques I was able to get just the effect I wanted - and was reminded of what a versatile set this is!
Here's my card (beware some yo yo yellow to follow...!)

And here's a close up of some dimensional detail:

Stamp with Us Colour Challenge

Evening all!!
Stamp with Us posted a new inspiration photo colour challenge today, so, luckily, this afternoon Mr 3 went to sleep & whilst the other two watched Wall E (after arguing over who had already seen it the most!) I snuck away to my little craft santuary, and cleared a small area of desk to create on - would have been good if I'd cleared up yesterday, but organised? Me? Nope! Unfortunately.'s the photo:

Isn't it just delightful? Love those cupcakes, so cute!

From the picture, I was 'inspired' to use the colours: sage, pretty in pink, pink pirouette, close to cocoa, pale plum & white and I incorporated them into my card (below), adding dazzling diamonds, crystal effects & pink tafetta ribbon to add some detail.

Stamp sets: Owl together now, crazy for cupcakes (used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get them to sit on the branch) happy moments (sentiment) polka dot background
Happy Sunday!

Stamp with Us theme challenge take 2!

Good morning!
Thank you cards are probably the ones I most like to make & the ones I use the most, so this morning, I've made up a couple more for the Stamp with Us challenge this week.
As I need to dash off to do some shopping, without further ado here are my two cards:
The first one uses the current Sale-A-Bration sets happy moments & whimsical words & the 2nd card is flight of the butterfly plus the mini butterfly from butterfly prints in the current mini catalogue.

So now off to the shops I go...hi ho hi ho....

Have a good w/e! Caroline x

Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #18 & Stamp with Us challenge

Just popping in to upload a thankyou card that I need to send. I've designed it using Makeesha's sketch challenge for this week here and also for the Stamp with Us theme challenge here. I do have another thank you card in mind for the Stamp with Us challenge - so hopefully will get that made & posted before Sunday.

I've used the felt fusion flowers on my card & just the thank you sentiment from the happy moments SAB stamp set that can currently be earnt for free!

Here it is:
The dsp is raspberry tart and the main colours are rose red and pretty in pink on kraft base card.
Bye for now
