Welcome to a lazy Sunday morning


I've a bumper feast of crafting to share with you today so, without further ado, I'll crack on - my first share is an ATC ..... you may recall that I made two cards using this stamp set (and similar colour) recently but - given its total FABness, I could not resist seeing if it would work as an ATC

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Black card snippet cut to ATC size
  • Snippet of a DCWV sheet from the Old Word stack
  • Snippet of white card
  • Studio 490 images and Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival mini's in vibrant fuchsia and paradise teal
  • Diamond stickles to bling it up a bit more

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Jo's Scrap Shack - challenge No. 190 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Crafty Sentiments - May 23rd challenge - ANYTHING GOES

Then I tried a thank you card using the design I shared last week and using the teal and monarch orange - like it?

And for my next project - a Christmas card!

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of the envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 5" x 3¾"
  • Rubber Necker image and Recollections sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Derwent coloursoft pencils used to colour
  • Diamond stickles to bling it up

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:

  5. ABC of Christmas - May 3rd challenge - J is for JINGLE BELLS or K is for KEEP IT SIMPLE

And, finally, another ATC using some OLD stash ..

Materials used:

So many beauties here, KathyK.
The Rudolph card is so lovely. Wish I could still wear boots like that! They instantly made me think of the eldest daughter. We call her Glamour Girl as she is always dressed like this young lady!

This is a lovely stamp and you have made it looks so pretty!
