"I get by with a little help from my friends...."

I helped a friend the other day with card making. When going back to basics, you remember how far you yourselfe have come and how much there is to teach! I idn't know where to start!... We managedto produce this card though. All along I wanted to encourage her to make the decisions because it was her card, I was just there to give guidance, she was so pleased with the results. That lovely bird image was on some sheets that a neighbour gave her, which she kindly let me keep (beacuse she has more).
So I was able to use it on this thankyou card, based on the 2sketches4You design. This is winging it's way to canada to say thank you to a friend who kindly sent me a clear bible text stamp - thank you, you know who you are! Sorry if you see the card here first...
These cards are what I managed to produce using the gorgeous text stamp, with my new heidi swapp one- what a great match!

Making an impression

Heat embossing was the challenge this week for Cupcake craft Challenge blog, I made this card the other day and realised it fitted in nicely with the topic :) I used utee and embossing powder to create a layered effect of powder, and pushed the stamp in to make an impression. Used scraps of offcuts which I layered and stamped, and there you have it a simple masculine card.

Bright & Bold

OOh couldn't wait to get stuck into the DCM challenge of bright, I recently bought some floral chipboard and felt (from charity shop) and traced round it to get the shapes of the flowers, I had fun mixing and matching, kept trying to add more to the card,but just didnt look right- so I left it!
