Sketch and Stash #18

Wooohooo, I'm getting good at making cards and blogging at the moment, but I'm not going to hold my breath, as I do tend to drift away from time to time lol!
As I've been playing with some new goodies (well I've had them a few weeks but haven't played with them yet!!!). For this card I used my new stamp from Sugar Nellie and some very old papers from K & Co. I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash which is a fab sketch and I'm sure I'll use it lots in the future.
Stamp: Sugar Nellie fragile beauty and Studio G

Paper: K & Co la Boutique, Core'dination
Accessories: Prima flowers, lace, copics, BasicGrey archaic brads, gemstones, nestabilities, cuttlebug, D'vine swirl embossing folder, SU! oval and scallop oval punches.

Paperminutes Challenge #78

I've been crafting again YAY! I'm glad I'm getting back into it and maybe this is a good omen - maybe Martin might go back to work soon and then I can get back into my routine. I made this card using the sketch over at Paperminutes (a challenge blog that I haven't played along with for ages!). It's a great sketch and I knew exactly what stamp I was going to play with Penny Black Embrace. As I've had this stamp for far too long without using it myself I thought it was about time to get it out. Stamp: Penny Black embrace, SU! Oval all Paper: Brenda Walton chelsea pad Ink: Memento tuxedo black Accessories: Copics, prima flowers, rectangle nestabilities, cuttlebug, sunflowers, ice stickles crystal ice, SU! oval and scallop punches.
