Friendship Flowers

These papers are my most recent digital purchase. The are from, from their Beautiful Day selection. They are just lovely, very feminine, just what I like! The stamped sentiment is from See Dee's, stamped with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tea Dye. A little ribbon from salvaged from a wedding invitation with pearls added. Understated, I like this one.

Birthday Sparkle

That last addition for the Dare you to Digi Stamp challenge has put me in the mood!! Loved the Pink Petticoat's "Lola's Rose" paper so I thought I'd use it here too, just in a different colour. The striped paper is from the same collection "Lola's Boudoir" as is the little stamp, the crown has been glittered using my ever faithful Stickles glue, love it!! Added some flowers from Prima and Green Tara and a little heart shaped brad from Papermania. The border was cut using my Carla Craft punch. Think this has turned out well!

Challenge Card

Just created this for the Dare you to Digi Stamp Challenge. This week the theme was lemon and lilac, a first for me haven't used this combination before but they look pretty together. The card is printed with Lola's Rose, from Pink Petticoat, Lola's Boudoir Collection. The yellow card was also printed from Pink Petticoat's colour palette, in Sunshine. The image is from Lola's Boudoir. I used my Cuttlebug to cut some little blooms and embellished these with little gems from Doodlebug Designs. The brad is from the Laura Ashley Collection. Finished with a little heart border cut using a order punch from Carla Crafts. Really like this colour combo!

Quick Cutie

Just a little quickie to pass the time! Lilac card blank from stash, patterned Paper from Pink Petticoat, Little Swirls and a little floral embellishment from Artoz. I added a little sentiment stamp by See Dees and used my corner punch from Carla Crafts for a little detail. Nice.

Altered Box

A little change from the norm tonight. After spending a lot of time de-cluttering my daughters' bedrooms last week, I came across a few boxes and couldn't resist another excuse to play with my paper! This little box came with perfume gifts inside and it was a lovely shade of blue. After browsing my downloads collection I fell for the Little Swirls Collection from Pink Petticoat. I used the blue, which was "Pebble" and the brown which was "Mocha" and I really think it has turned out lovely. I used a Sizzix flower die, though I think the brown one may be a little big, but I can live with that. The ribbon was off a box of chocs and the little gems are from Papermania. I punched a little tag with my new Carla Craft border punch and stamped a little sentiment with black Stazon ink. I finished with a little silver Stickles glue. Not sure what to use it for just yet, though I am going to paint my little craft room soon, when I manage to claim it back from storage!

Dare you to digi stamp......

Created this little card especially for the Dare You to Digi Stamp challenge number 5, over at there was an adorable sketch provided and this is my take on it. I must admit I enjoyed this as I just love the simplicity of digi stamps. I used backing paper from from their "Happy go Lucky" pack. The pink circles are from card stock and the little image is from my ever favourite Pink Petticoat. Its from the "Lola'sBoudoir" collection. I created a little ribbon affect using flowers and gems from papermania and a little punched border using a Carla Craft punch. Finished off with a little Stickles glue.

Pink Lady.

I haven't blogged in so long, my creativity has been stifled somewhat of late. Life. It has a tendency to take over sometimes and finds plenty of "stuff" to occupy us physically and mentally. Anyhoo, here is a little addition made using a little digi stamp from Pink Petticoat. It's Lola Rose of course and she showing off a sparkler! Teamed this up with some free papers from a magazine which I just adore, lots of pinks and patterns. Nice little card and cost practically nought!!!!
