Card for Pam

It's been quite a while since I have made a card, and since a neighbour was having a birthday I thought I should get to work and make her a card, this is what i came up with.

I made the background with some distress inks on some cheap water colour paper added a touch more colour with a stencil and some more distress ink.

The flowers I also made from the same water colour paper which I coloured with distress inks and cut out with the Cheery Lynn Gardenia Strip die.

Snugglepot and Cuddlepie

Kaaren from Fat Cats Card Corner sent me this cute Snugglepot and Cuddlepie cling stamp from Paper Roses.
I've coloured them with copics and hand drawn a leaf for them to be sitting on.
The Sue Wilson Ocean Waves Pinpoint embossing folder looked like the leaves and wattle from a Wattle tree so added some colour to the raised embossed bits also using copics.
I also used the Sue Wilson Scalloped Lattice Frame die set.



And here is a version of the cute stamp done in Christmas Colours again using copics to colour.
The Sue Wilson Ocean Waves Pinpoint embossing folder was used again and the lovely border die they are sitting on is the Paper Roses Madison Lace Edge die.
Happy Christmas die is from Cheery Lynn.



again as well as the Paper Roses Madison Lace Edge die.
the Flowers are Sue Wilson Striped Nasturtiums and the With Sympathy die is from the Crafters Companion Die'sire range.

Allan's Quilt

 I made this quilt for my brother Allan, who is fighting throat cancer, I thought it might give him some comfort when those horrid cancer treatments have him feeling like doing nothing else but curling up on the couch.

I ordered the Man From Snowy River (his favourite movie), fabric panel online and when it came, I just kept adding borders until I felt it was large enough to snuggle under.
I quilted it with a large stipple design, I wanted the quilt to stay soft and comfy.








Leonie Pujol Rag Doll

I have two more cards to share that I made for Kaaren at Fat Cats Card Corner.



The dies I've used are:
the leonie Pujol Rag Doll Stamp set
Sue Wilson Tropical Hibiscus Die set
Spellbinders Emmeline Treillage - Venice Lace


I've used the leonie Pujol Rag Doll Stamp set to do some copic colouring, paper piecing and added glossy accents to the hearts in her hair, her patent leather shoes lol, the star in her hands and the Happy Everything.


I also used the Sue Wilson-Tropical Hibiscus die set and the Memory Box/Poppy stamps lavender Stems left Corner Die.
