Which Craft? UK pride ourselves on creating new and unique Quality Card Blanks'For Your Inspiration'

We also organise the following event.......

Paula has very kindly given us the following prize for one of you lucky people to win....

All you need to do is leave your name with Inlinkz on the Inspiration blog HERE,only one entry per person please to make it fair for everyone...

The DT were sent a selection of shaped card blanks to use. I must say the quality is lovely and I really enjoyed making this. It would have been difficult if not impossible to cut and score this myself :-)

I went for a British summer afternoon theme and used this very cute Kitty Picnic image from the Wild Rose Studio, coloured with Copics. I used a spellbinders labels 8 to cut the image and the mat and I the edges inked with Stormy Sky and Forest Moss DI. I added star dust stickles here and there and used glossy accents on the ladybirds The papers are from Kaiser Crafts and I used a couple of Martha Stewart butterfly punches and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. The pearls are Hero Arts and the spotty organza ribbon and button are from Crafty Ribbons.

The DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Inspiration Blog to see them all. Goos Luck with the prize draw too :-)

Hi all :-) goodness this weeks gone quick ! where did that go ?? Friday is here again and its time for a new theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge :-)

This week the lovely Lisa is hosting and she made us a fabulous sketch to follow ! :-)

It’s wedding season so I thought I would make a card using this gorgeous new Wedding Cake stamp from the Wild Rose Studio, isn’t it pretty !

I stamped with Memento ink onto Neenah card and coloured with Copics. I used silver stardream card for all the layering and the papers are from a gorgeous WRS Wedding Bells pack. I used a Nellie Snellen Oval Multi frame die and threaded some satin edged organza ribbon through, made a bow and added a Prima flower in the center. I finished with a Martha Stewart punched butterfly, there are 3 layers to this, a white card base, then one punched from a matching paper from the pack and then topped with vellum. I added some lilac gems and made the antennae from craft wire. I finished with some Hero Arts Earth Dots and oodles of star dust stickles here and there :-)
