More Tiny Flowers

I've been making a few more notecards, in different colours. I think I need to buy some new flower punches, though, as the different flower shapes look good together :)  Any excuse to buy more craft gear...

I made a couple in turquoise and in pink, smaller versions of the birthday cards I made last week:

These ones are inspired by the Fusion 'Happy Days' challenge, although I think I should have used more yellow, less white :-s  But I love colour challenges, as I'm not very imaginative with colours and the challenges make you try something new :)

I made these for the MFT Color challenge - love these colours!

Makes me think of bees

I wanted to make a card for the Color Throwdown challenge, but I could only think about making something with bees on it, and I couldn't think of any bee-related card ideas.

Love the colours, though, and also the daisies image - oh yeah, I could make something with flowers! It's not always about bees...

So I made a couple of tiny note cards with punched flowers and gems. I'm entering this one in the Color Throwdown Challenge:

And I'm entering this one in the Allsorts challenge: 'Bring on the bling' - ok, so it only has three gems on it, but it's a tiny card, so a higher percentage of it is 'bling'ed... Hope it counts!

Wishing you Cats & Happiness

Hi! I've just bought a new digistamp from Sami Stamps, called 'Covered in Kitties'  :)

Here are a couple of cards I made with it:

I'm entering this one into the Corrosive Challenge : 'Hip to be Square'

And I'm entering this one into the Inkspirational Challenge: 'Space'

A Row of Flowers

Taking a break from stencils and cats, I've made some new cards using punched flowers. Got carried away again, and made the same card in different colours. Here are a few of them:

I'm entering this one in the Crafty Creations 'Seeing Spots' challenge

I'm entering this one in the Tip top Tuesday '3 of Something...' challenge - I hope it counts, as there are 9 flowers, but only 3 large ones with gems...

I'm entering this one in the Crafty Cardmakers 'Dots' challenge

I'm entering this one in the Wags n Whiskers 'Flowers' challenge

Cat Obsession

I've made some more cat stencil cards, although I think I really ought to stop and make something different! But here are a few new ones:

I was inspired by Colour Q's challenge to make this one in black, grey and red.

I'm also entering it in The Paper Players challenge: Clean-and-Simple challenge...Watercolor!
The grey background was created with ink dusters, and the flowers were stamped and then coloured using ink and water brushes.

I'm entering this one in the Cupcake Inspirations challenge - gorgeous colours in this challenge! The colours haven't come out very clearly in my photo, though


I tried something a bit different with this one, and I'm not sure if it worked or not... I think I prefer the flowers, but I like the 3D punched hearts with the stamped images. I'm entering this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge: Words, Words, Words

Made a Cat Stencil...

Hiya! I've made a cat stencil, to make cat versions of the butterfly cards I made earlier. A bit obsessed with stencils at the moment! I wanted to make the same card in different colours, and have been inspired by quite a few challenges :)

Here are a cards few I made with the new stencil:

I'm entering this card into The Crazy Challenge : Springtime, because of the bright colours, which make me think of daffodils, tulips, forget-me-nots and rain-soaked grass :)

I'm entering this one into the following challenges:
Inkspirational Challenges
These two challenges made me use colours I would not normally think to use, and I'm really pleased with how it has turned out :)

I'm entering this one into the Simon Says Stamp "Make Your Own Background" challenge, as these cards are home-made backgrounds that take shape because of a stencil :)

I'm entering this one into the following challenges:
Allsorts "Quick and Easy Does it!"
Crafty Sentiments "Anything Goes"

I'm entering this one into the Wags n Whiskers "Flowers" challenge. Any of these cards fit the 'flowers' theme, but all my favourite flowers are blue, so this is the one!

I'm entering this one into The Pink Elephant challenge - love the colours!

I'm entering this one into the CASology challenge: "Sweet", because cats and flowers are sweet, and because the colours remind me of sweets!

Glass Tile Pendants

I've recently rediscovered my obsession with glass tile pendants. Here are a few of my recently made ones :
