With Love

Hiya, hope you're having a great weekend. I met a doe at my jogging/walking trail, she passed so close that I could have reached out for her. It was one of those moments that fills the heart. Just like weddings do! So I had to search for my Stampscapes...and didn't use the doe stamp, maybe I'll come back with her later!

I used:
Stipple brushes and Distress inks for background
Stamscapes large church stamp
Black Versa Fine ink
White Sakura pen for highlights
Red and golden Sakura pens for flowers
Liquid pearls
Oval nesties
Magnolia sentiment stamp

Living A Fairytale

Hiya bloggers and blogreaders! Hope you're all well and up for a new challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges; this week we want to see some fairytale inspired projects and please, tell us what fairytale you've chosen.

Di's Digi Downloads are offering a happy winner a $10 Gift Certificate and Quixotic Paperie are offering another happy winner a £10 Gift Voucher, great, huh?!

Mine is an easy one, the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, made by Mo Manning, coloured with ProMarkers, Derwent water pens and Sakura metallic pens. Some glossy accents and he was done. Now when I'm looking at the image I'm wondering why I left the ground bare, ah, well, next time.

The background paper and cotton ribbon are from a posh shopping bag, not mine, got it from a generous friend.

And, yes, at the moment I'm living A Fairytale, I'm running late, hehe!

Have a great week!

The grass is greener...

...on the other side! Literally!!! I have such moments in real life too, thinking that the neighbours are living a better life.....she has a lovely red hand bag you know! Oh, and my team mates make such fantastic cards all the time! I'm a wee bit green of envy...

This week we're In Stitches (!) at Cupcake Craft Challenges and we want to see some sewing, faux or real. We're being sponsored by Sassy Studio Design and SK digis, please check our blog for all the details. The team was kindly offered images and I got the zebra from SK digis. Thank you Rosie and welcome as a follower!!!! I loved to work with the fabby image!!! The Zebra is soo cute!

I went for the different greens of envy for this one; green raffia for the grass patches. Alpha Markers, Derwent water colours, Stickles and Glossy Accents for the zebra. A Nellie Snellen die, Hero Arts large plaid stamp, Distress inks and Liquid Pearls. And a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Kram means Hugs in Swedish and is stamped with an Exchangeable alphabet.

So Long Summer

Hiya, hope you're doing well and are having a relaxing weekend. I've been enjoying a quiet weekend, last week was so busy with work and a new course at the Uni. It's very exciting to learn new things, but oh my, I felt like my students do when I saw the amount of books we'll need go through. Do I need to read them all was my silent question!!!

So a very simple card emerged this time from the crafty corner, the fabby leaf stamp is an Exchangeable stamped with red Brilliance ink and embossed with extra fine clear powder.I masked the card sock to create the field for stamping.

The sentiment is from the Pink Paislee Nantucket set, stamped with Memories black ink. I added two bold gems to draw attention to the text.

I would like to enter:

Hope you pop by tomorrow too, the Cupcakes has a new great challenge!
