Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Fairytale Characters/Inspired by a Fairytale.

I guess mine isn't really a fairytale, but it is inspired by a children's book and an a old favourite in this house! I've used various Vera Lane Studio sets and one Janet Klein AALL and Create stamp.  I think I've got them all below but as I stupidly didn't write them all down at the time I may not have!

Hello!

This wee cutie from Whimsy is saying hello today.  I love doing cards where there's an animal peeking in from the side and I particularly love the expression on this wee dude's face.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Rainbows and Rainy Days.

I've got two cards to share today.

The first is a rainy day and the second is a rainbow!

Pig in Wellies -  Lee Holland
Copics/Promarkers/Flexmarkers
Watercolour Background - LotV
Stitched Square - The Works

And for the second card I wanted to use a rainbow, I'm not sure this is what I set out to do but it looks ok.  This wee rhino dude doesn't have wellies so I used the wellies from one of the badgers in the Badger Me set and used those and the falling hearts are from the Sentimental set, I've just used the brolly to cover up the top bit of the image!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Easter/Spring Mood Board  the photos that make up this board were all taken by our lovely Wends who compiled them to give us this inspiration.


Now this is actually the card I sent to Wends for her birthday and now that she has received it I feel that I can share it for the challenge.  I had another idea last night for which card I would use but looking at everything today I've no idea what my idea was! And I know they're ducklings but I wouldn't call Wends duck so I went with chick instead!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

.Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' .  The theme this time is Use Your Old Stash. Now I have to confess that this is a combination of old and new.  The Lindy's Magicals I used for the background are new but the Little Miss Attitude was one of the very first stamps I bought, the Black Soot DI, the Tim Holtz Snarky stickers and the AALL and Create No are all older (full disclosure, the No is actually from a number set and had a full stop after it but I didn't ink that bit).

So here is Little Miss A's memorydex card - got the memorydex holder for my birthday last year, made two cards and they recently went in the bin because they were rubbish so this is my first (ish) memorydex card.







Little Miss Attitude - Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Collection
Numbers - Janet Klein for Aall and Create

Hello.
 
It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and it's a nice easy challenge to start the year - New! I've gone for new(ish) stamps and new year.
