TILDA WITH ROSE


I love the sketch this week over on Sketch Saturday.  I used my Tilda with Rose stamp, coloured her in with copics and cut out.  I then mounted her onto cardstock from SU.  The sentiment I received in my new Hanglar stamp set I had off Ebay.


The following are all from Stampin Up:-


Always Artichoke cardstock
Pretty in Pink cardstock
Tea and Crumpets Designer Paper pack

DIGI DOODLE SHOP'S BEST DT CARD CHALLENGE 5


This week over on Digi Doodle Shops Best is following the theme of Easter/Spring but the challenge this week is to create anything to do with this theme.


I have chosen this lovely stamp from the store called Springtime Bunnies, coloured it in with copics and mounted onto yellow cardstock.  The dp is from DCWV Citrus Stack.  I used my Martha Stewart Daisy punch for the fancy edging on the centre strip.  Brads are from my stash, flowers are Prima and gems are Craftime.


Pop over to the other DT members' blogs - links in my sidebar and take a look at their lovely creations.  This week we are being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who are offering a $15 gift certificate to spend in their on-line shop.

SITTING HANGLAR & STANGLAR


I was really pleased to have been lucky enough to have purchased one of the Hanglar & Stanglar sets off Ebay a couple of weeks ago.  I missed out on one of the sets but managed one with these two stamps in.


I masked two of the stamps together, coloured in with my copics and cut out with my Labels Eight Nestability.  The sentiment is one of my new Magnolia stamps which I also cut out with the same Nestability set.


The dp is the same reversable sheet by Kaisercraft called Bloom and the embossed polka dot card is from Silly Monkeys.  I used Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ribbon and adhesive gems from Prima.


I am entering this into this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge.
