More Cards for Challenges

Well, I still seem to have some mojo left, so here are three new creations. First off, a card for the latest challenge at DCM entitled "Hide and Seek".

I used the other set of my new We R Memorykeepers papers and created a little pocket for a tag (part of the set) to go into. Sentiments are computer-printed, everything else is from stash.

The next card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, which was to use "red".

Papers are from Costco pack and DCWV Christmas stack, heart is QK die, sentiment stamped with MM magnetic stamps and button is from stash. I used a sketch that I had taken down some time ago, but I can't remember whose it was...

And with this last card I followed a layout that Stef had used on her blog and that I liked for its simplicity and versatility.

Papers are DCWV Pockets of Posies, ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis, rest from stash.

The flowers on the first and last card are actually all new - I ordered quite a large supply last week and they arrived on Tuesday. I also took delivery of my new camera and I hope to get to grips with it quickly and produce better pictures than the ones above. And then I also received my first Magnolia and Sugar Nellie stamps this week... Some of you may be aware I've never been much of a stamper, but I really like these stamps so much that I'm going to step out of my comfort zone and learn something new! I wasn't really fully aware how many extra bits I will have to get, though: I have now ordered some EZmount for the Sugar Nellies, I've also ordered some brush markers and I will have to order a better inkpad, so my images won't smudge when I colour them. Until then, I'll practice just with my regular pencils - I actually quite like the effect they give.

Well, that's it for today, thanks for looking and enjoy your weekends!

  3. Gorgeous cards Anne, I absolutely love the tag card, the pocket on it is so sweet!
    Glad to hear you have been treating yourself to some Sugar Nellies and Tildas, you will be hooked I guarantee! they do stamp beautifully but I would recommend you get a Stazon ink pad as it doesn't run when you use wetter colouring products. It is more expensive but it is worth the extra as you won't experience the smudging and also it lasts for ages!
