Sweet Little Bird

Hi My Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good weekend. We had a nice time in Brighton but unfortunately I started a cold on Saturday  evening meaning that I didn't feel much like looking around today so  we came away earlier than we expected. I must say it is nice to be wrapped up in the warm and home and not wandering around in the cold. At least it wasn't raining. I had one very nice piece of news waiting for me when I got home I had come joint first in the Fantasy Stampers Challenge - Fairy Nice.

Today's card is one that I made using one of the free stamps from Cardmaking and Papercraft Issue 140. I liked the stamps so much I also bought the matching dies they are very pretty I think they will be very useful.


This is a smaller card for me being 6" x 6". I stamped the image onto some white card with black archival and I heat embossed it with CS Clear fine detail embossing powder. Once this was done I had some fun colouring the image with Promarkers.


I cut the image out with one of my Tonic circle dies and I inked round the edge of the image once it was cut. I cut a slightly larger circle in black card and then I cut the Spellbinder die twice once in pink and once in black. You can see from the image how I layered  all the elements up. 


I used some patterned paper from my stash and I raided my snippets stash for the extra patterned paper.In fact lots of the card I used came from my rather extensive Snippets stash. One day I will get it under control.  The ribbon came from the wrapping of a pyjama set I had at Christmas. I would like to enter Pixie's Snippets Playground - 162.

I hope you have a good week.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  14. Oh how lovely Jackie! What a gorgeous stamp and I can quite see why you bought the dies of course :) And clever to use the ribbon from the PJ wrapping. Waste not, want not - and it's also a snippet :)

    You did right to stay home today - firstly if you feel ill there's nothing worse than dragging yourself into work - plus folk probably won't thank you if they catch your cold. Hope you feel lots better soon - but don't rush back!

    Hugs
