For You



So this is my entry on the Cardz 4 Galz page I am currently a guest dt member and I must I am enjoying my time as a Guest dt member.

The challenge this time is Get Inky and this time it was my turn to set the theme of the card. So to start my card I took a 6 x 6 black base card then a piece of white card 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 I then took my  Daisy Daisy stencil by Visible Image and some ink pads and daubers . I rubbed my dauber in a colour and the rubbed it on a section and repeated this all round until no white left, now lift the stencil away. I then stamped a sentiment  and raised this on a foam pad to add a little dimension to the middle of my card.

Best Day Ever Card



So this is my entry on the Cardz 4 Galz page I am currently a guest dt member and I must I am enjoying my time as a Guest dt member.

The challenge this time is circles and purples So I thought stencil daubers and some inks . 
I took a base card black 6 x 6 in lilac and then a mat a little smaller in a darker  purple and then a piece of white card slightly smaller again. With my white piece of card I placed my stencil down and taped the sided with low tack tape to keep it in place while I used my daubers to colour. I took 3 different colour purple inks and just tried to randomly colour, though get an even amount of each colour all over the card think I did ok. Finally I put my sentiment in the top left corner.

Seas the day challenge card



So this is my entry on the Cardz 4 Galz page I am currently a guest dt member and I must I am enjoying my time as a Guest dt member.

The challenge this time is Summer Fun (Beach,Shell's,Water ect) . I wasn't sure what I could do for this one and had to have a rummage through my stash and I found a stamp set which was free with Simply cards and papercrafts issue 207.
I took a base card black 6 x 6 and then a piece of lovely blue glitter card then a piece of white  card and stamped my images I started with the shell's and then the starfish on the starfish I decided to add a small gem in the middle. Finally I put my sentiment in the middle

For you



I was in a card swap and this is the card I made and sent to my swap partner. I am pleased to say she liked it.
I took a 6 x 6 base card in black and then a gingham mat slightly smaller and then a smaller lilac mat and finally a white piece of card for my stamping.
I used two stencils for this a solid butterfly which I did in a light pink and then the detail stencil I used a darker pink. For the sentiment I used Heffy doodle stamp set and matching dies I used a white piece of card white I coloured with my inks so they matched. I raised these to give a bit of detail and finally I used some pearls in the top left and bottom right corner.
