Orange Tweet Bird Card - Learning to crochet !




I thought I would share with you my birthday card I made for my mother as she's going to have it pretty soon. I used lovely papers from Dovecraft, the little bird stamp is a hostess stamp from Stampin' Up I just love it as it's so whimsical. Sentiment and punched out elements Stampin' Up again. I edged the border with brilliance black lightning.

Now I purchased the 'Art of Crochet' as I want to learn how to create crochet flowers to add to my cards as embellishments. I finally crocheted in one evening this small square, I'm just a beginner but am enjoying it already. Here's a picture of my first double crochet square !

Heart and Buttons Card - Dare U 2 Digistamp Challenge




It seems I got my creative juices flowing again as I'm back on the horse making this card for the Dare U 2 Digistamp challenge ! Woohoo !

I've used Laurence Lewelyn Bowen papers (Christmas gift), digistamp from La Verve, metallic buttons (Studio) and scalloped punch (Stampin' Up). The heart was coloured using Derwent metallic pencils and softened using Sansodor solvent. Brilliance inkpads in gold and lightning black were used to edge and stamp the corner motif and hearts using Hot Off the Press stamps 'Flight of fancy'.
