A bit of brightness...

on another dull and wet morning.....

Still playing with SU "Love you lots" set and scraps of paper !!. Such cute images......

I've fussy cut out hearts from a pearly pattern paper and mounted them onto squares of dotty paper using 3d foam tape.  Made my usual cloud background and grass with inks and Spectrum Noir pens. Stamped the ladybirds twice, fussy cutting out just the bodies so I could 3d them. Buttons and ribbon to finish off...

Well I thought today was going to be dull, but dry....its raining at mo, lets hope it changes later !!

So here's a card to make you smile. I've been playing with my Stampin Up set again called "Love You Lot's" and scraps of papers....

 Made one yellow pattern layer and cut a circle aperture out of middle , then mounted it onto a green pattern layer using 3d foam tape. Stamped and fussy cut out the frogs. made my inked sky background and hand drew the grass. Added a lot of faux stitching round all the edges.

Thank you..

Made this cute little thank you card last night using a Stampin Up set called " Love You Lots ". A lovely friend gave it to me for my Birthday.

One of my other very lovely friends Nicki, gives me her left over scraps of papers and I have used some of them to make the sweet background. Love playing with bits of paper !!

Was very busy yesterday stamping and punching  this cute lot.......

This was one of my own birthday treats to myself,  another Stampin Up set called "Foxy Friends" which has a matching punch.

Think I'm going to be busy making cards with this little lot.......

Free punch....

On Saturday at AMOM we were making four cards and were all given a hugh free fun punch from Woodware  ( cheers Dorothy !!)  which punches out a branch, leaves, owl and wings plus bird.

We did some die cutting, embossing wet and dry and inking as well as punching out.

Here are my four finished cards. ( added a little wooden heart when I got home, nearly always goes  home with bits and pieces so finish off when home)

Should have been lovely silver embossed trees in the background, but  didn't go very well for me, so stamped some black trees over when I got one will know

Love the embossing folder on this one.

Cutie !!

Morning guys...its my turn for a LC Designs project and I've used a little cutie from the Irresistible Images Puppy Portraits pack. You'll find loads of other puppy breeds in the pack !!

You can see why I chose to use this one......
This is my old Jack Russel boy Hugo who's brown now is rather white !!

Just used one of the 6" x6" dotty papers onto a white card base adding a bobble trim all round the edge. Then onto a 5 1/2" square of white card attached rows of  punched scallop dotty dots strips in different colours. Out of the middle of this, cut a square the same size as image. Mount onto front of card using 3d foam tape. Stamp sentiment onto image front and draw wavy black line round edge and glue into the aperture. To finish,  add a big dotty bow with bobble trim them heart button and add 3 smaller heart buttons to corners.

hugs Diane xx
