Stamp Something - Birthday Somethings

I spotted this glass perfume bottle in our local Pound shop today and couldn't wait to get home to alter it!!

I have used a butterfly Aqua Glass outline sticker and coloured it with pearlescent glass paints. I have stamped leaves, swirls and flowers from the Stampman Flitters and Flutters set in different colours of Stazon and stuck little gems and flowers onto the bottle, before finishing it off with some ribbon and a tassel. I have filled it with Bath Caviar and it will be going to my mum for her birthday.

Sugar Bowl Challenge 17 - Sketch by Judy

Another fabby sketch by Judy for this challenge over on The Sugar Bowl with the added extra of "handmade flowers".

I have flipped the sketch over and used this gorgeous Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl coloured with Promarkers, Sakura pens and shimmer chalks. Papers are MME Bloom & Grow with matching Bazzill cardstock and fibres. Sentiment is from a Joanna Sheen set. I've used EK Success punches and a Swarovski crystal to make my flowers.

Cute Card Thursday # 74 - Summer

Is it summer??!! I hadn't noticed. We seem to be living in perpetual October here ........

Anyhow this is the theme this week on Cute Card Thursday is "Lazy Dayz" and we are looking for summer inspired cards.

Another older Magnolia Tilda stamp - coloured with Promarkers and Sakura pens. Papers are Basic Grey Euphoria and card is SU. Sentiment is from Stampman and is stamped in Cranberry Adirondack. I've used EK Success swirl punches and the flowers are from my stash (which is code for I can't remember where I got them!!). The little dragonfly is homemade with some wings and beads on a long head pin.

Another great prize, Guest Designer and yet again amazing inspiration from the Design Team so it's really worth checking it all out here.

Penny Black Saturday #62 - Blue, Tan & Cream and DCM - Lace

YEY - another card made!! I am really starting to enjoy crafting again.

This is for the colour challenge of Blue, Tan and Cream on Penny Black Saturday and the lace also qualifies it for this week's theme on Daring Cardmakers.

I got the Polychromos pencils out for this Penny Black dog - wow it's been a while!! As much as I love my Promarkers and seem to reach for them every time these days I really don't feel that they ever colour animal hair/fur as well as the pencils. I really must reach for them more often I think!!

I've used paper from K&Co Cut & Paste and a Papermania pad. Sentiment is from Elzybells (I so love their words and phrases) and I've used a Martha Stewart border punch and Craftwork Cards Card Candy to finish it off.

Thanks for looking.
