Happy Days

Here's a bright, colourful birthday card that I really enjoyed making today...


I used an image from a set of 3 from DigiStamp Boutique called Maddie Happy Days.
I coloured Maddie with promarkers, then fussy cut her out.
I wanted a fun back-drop for her so decided to use the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, adding candles (made from flattened straws) and balloons.
I used 4 different papers from the same pad (Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine).

I'd like to enter this card at:
Sketch Saturday - sketch #473

For my friend...

I wanted to make my doggy lover friend a birthday card using some of the stamps from my Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp set...


I coloured the images with promarkers before fussy cutting them out.
The background was made using a paw print embossing folder by Darice, and I used a spellbinders die to cut a frame into the front of the card.
The sentiment is made from stamps by Craftwork Cards (Label Tape Sentiments), and a Clearly Besotted word die.

Clearly Besotted Love Quotes

I was rummaging through my stamp sets the other day, and found one that I haven't used for quite a while... Love Quotes by Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Here's a couple of cards that I've made using it...


I stamped the flowers using Memento inks, then cut them out using the matching dies.
The background was made using a wood grain stamp from Kaisercraft, and a script stamp from Imagination Crafts.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up's 'Bring on the cake' stamp set.
............


This simple card used papers that are all from the same pad by Lawn Fawn (Let's Polka in the Meadow), and the sentiment stamp is from an old set by All Night Media.

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend xx

Wedding couple

Here's a quick wedding card, using Lili of the Valley's Wedding Couple stamp...



I coloured the image with Promarkers, then fussy cut it out.
The papers used are both from Lawn Fawn, but different pads; Let's Polka in the Meadow, and Pint-sized Patters (Beachside).
I've used the 'Mr & Mrs' die, which is from Sara Davies' Signature Collection, Together Forever.
The pretty wavy border is a Marianne border die (wave).
I finished the card with punched flowers (SU's boho blossoms) which have silver flat back pearls added the centre of each one.
