A little Sunday playing.....

I woke up this morning full of mojo, unfortunately I have to go out later so it was a Sunday morning play session (you should see the state of my desk!).    I saw the pom pom on and the lovely Brenda emailed the instructions to me - which turned out to be a bigger version of a floral punch craft technique; the punches are Woodware.

The flower is a Jane Gill design and I had a go in the lovely Papermania Glitter Embossed paper from    It's beautiful but it needs to be on a card....

The gift tag is a new venture for me, not made one before, but I was really pleased with this.   The paper is Papermania double-sided and it's purple so it MUST be gorgeous!    

Right, now I REALLY must go and get ready to go out.   HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Hero Arts Full Bloom Rose (green card)
Hero Arts Stitched Rose (pink card)
Hero Arts Dandelion (pale blue card)

Divided loyalties?

Now Ryan can't quite make up his mind who he supports (personally I think they're both rubbish) is it Arsenal or Liverpool....    His card had to have both - I was quite pleased with this challenge.   The football is Quickutz and I used a football stamp to stamp in the aperture.

I'm just lovin these wildflowers...

I'm just loving these Hero Arts Wildflower Garden stamps.    Unfortunately, the photos don't show all the glitter glue I used nor does it show the design of the card as well as it could.   The front cover of the card is cut to half the size of the rear, then I stamped the whole image on the back.  When this is dry I covered the image with a piece of acetate so I could see through, then stamped the image again on the front sheet, making sure it's all in line.

Stamp is Hero Arts Wildflower Garden from .
Tag stamp is Woodware Tiny Greetings & Tags

Mmm something missing....

I spent two days with this one, moving bits around, trying this, trying that and then run out of time as I had to get it in the post!    I'm still not entirely happy with it, there's definitely something missing...

Ha ha he'd laugh himself silly at that title....

Sorry the photo isn't too good, it's quite difficult with mirri card.    I used my Quickutz dies for this - was great to give them an airing again!    The starry velum was from a Papermania pack that I bought at The Glitterpot and I used card candy from Craftwork Cards.
