Today I have two cards to share and enter into some challenges.
My first card features a rubber stamp from the Elisabeth Bell range she is called, 'Fall Willow Catching Leaves' she was a prize I won some while ago, I stamped her with Archival Black Ink, coloured with markers and added stamping around the edge with my 'sand effect' wood mounted rubber stamp that I have had for many years.  The papers are LOTV mounted onto both red and yellow card stock, I added some die cut leaves, flowers and banner silk sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My second card is all about Christmas and features a Magnolia stamp, this one is called Tilda Sitting On Present.
I have gone for a vintage style theme and colours that I love so much, the papers are Pion Silent Night 6 x 6 from Love and Live Crafts, I distressed the edges and cut out a couple of the tags that were included on the papers.
I coloured Tilda with markers then cut her out so I could 3d her, I have used several dies, Sissix Clock, Tattered Lace Snowflake, Tattered Lace Presents and an Arch, I added flowers, bark stars, frosted berries, lace and a stamped sentiment from Paper Artistry, finally I added some liquid pearls, gold Nuvo Glitter and Stickles Gold Distressed glitter glue.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Once again I am sending you all heartfelt thanks for your kindness and support for myself and my blog, I am hoping to get around to visit you all today but I may be late as my mum is coming over to me for some dinner.
I am going to give her a lovely hot bowl of homemade stew that I know she loves.
My brother will drop off a little later so he can do some shopping.
Take care

MaryH said...

Big WOW on both of these pretty cards. Love the designs on each one of these - and the bright cheery fall colors on #1. I like the way you've done the layout on that one. #2 is so elegant & dimensional, great treatment with the clock motif, and surprise additions of the elegance with the flowers and delicate lace. A wonderful richness of Christmas cheer. TFS & Hugs
