Swingin' Mavis

OMG, this little kitty is cute! This card was done for this weeks challenge over at Stamping Bella, the theme, Polka Dots.

So, of course, as the title suggests...This is Swingin' Mavis. I used some of my Modern Homemaker paper from October afternoon and mounted everything on black cs. I used a few different Spellbinders and Flower Trio from MFT. The little black flower shaped brads were something I had in my stash.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Vintage Sexy

I love these Moonlight Whispers images from Kraftin' Kimmie. This one is Betty. She's a very sexy pin-up girl! Everything I've used (except the crochet lace) is from my stash. I think the PP are from Making Memories a few years ago. I stamped the image in brown and just lightly watercoloured areas of it to give it a vintage feel. I'm pretty happy with the outcome, and was excited to try a new technique. I also did a little bit of sewing on this one to a add to the vintage feel and give it some texture and dimension. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi! So, I've been in a card making mood lately and needed a thank you card for someone. I decided to use Woofin' it up from Stamping Bella because she is a dog lover. One of the things I love about this card is that I used PP that is ancient! I mean, I've had this stuff since the beginning of time! I'm trying very hard to do that though, cause new stuff isn't in my budget these days...
Hope you enjoy!

Another birthday rolls around...

And I haven't done that many posts since the last one...What can I say, I go through fazes with the stamping and the blogging. It's my sister's birthday again, and this time around I've used an MFT stamp called a la modes- What's Cooking?.
I really like these images and they were a perfect choice for her as she recently started her own cake making business.
I coloured her with prisma colour pencils and used the Modern Homemaker paper from October Afternoon. The button and twine are from my stash.
Have a great day!
