These folders are so fab - I decided to chalk my flower using Dovecraft glimmer chalks I have had for ages but hardly ever use, also some cute little coloured flower brads that have been sitting in my box forever. So I've decided to log this card with this week's Verve Diva Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers, which is to:
make a card using some of the stamping goodies that need some love!! You know, take out that stamp set that has never seen INK! Bust open that pack of brads that somehow LANDED in your shopping cart and are at the bottom of your drawer! Cut into that FABULOUS designer paper that you HAD to have and are afraid to use!!
Hope you like it!

This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge #11 is an interesting one for me , as cards are all I ever make! However as luck would have it I needed to make my first ever image wallet for a Docrafts image swap, so I've had a go. I used a technique from a Youtube video here: I made the base wallet from Bazzill bling card, decorated with two double-sided foiled and pearlescent papers from the s.e.i. "Poppy" range. The wallet wrapper is decorated with prima flowers pinned with a Papermania pearl brad, and the sentiment and tiny dragonflies are from the PB transparent set "Salutations".

Made this tri-fold card during the week to send to JanAng from the Docrafts forum .. I love doing monthly friendships swaps - it's great when the postie comes with a card!! I have posted further down the fab summer card she sent to me.
I used : PB stamp "Quite Dandy" which I coloured with Marvey brushstroke pens and spritzed with water to get the watercoloured effect; sentiment by Hero Arts stamped onto a nestie shape with the edges chalked with lilac and blue Colorbox Queue inks; background paper by Karen Neuberger for Paper Adventures, with the edges punched using the Multishaper Punch "Flower Garden"; flowers by WH Smith pinned with Making memories sparkly silver brads; gorgeous fluffy fibre given to me by a non-crafting friend Jean who picked it up at a car boot sale !! :-)

Having finished the card I looked around to see if I could enter it into any challenges ... this week's new Stamp Something Challenge is birthday somethings ... so that's a good fit!! And Cute Card Thursday #24 is bright colours ... well this card's colours are pretty bright for me compared with my usual pastels! Really hope Christine likes it and has a fab day!
I used: Penny Black image from Evelyn C, Penny Black sentiment, K&Co papers, lace from Hobbycraft, Prima flowers, Papermania pearl brads. I also had another good go at faux stitching - I'm really getting into it!

I decided to play around to see what I could come up with to satisfy two challenges with the one card ... Penny Black Saturday Challenge #9 is a sketch, and Cute Card Thursday #22 this week is "The Two of Us".
I have made a romantic card, using a PB cute mouse image gifted to me along with a friendship card by Evelyn C on Docrafts, coloured with watercolour pencils. for the three embellishments on the sketch I have used die cut Cuttlebug swirly hearts, and the sentiment is by ge studio clear stamps. I adore the background paper which is a pearlescent silk screen paper by Papermania, and the lace is from my local craft shop Edwin Allen.
I stamped the new PB Christmas stamp "Fantasy" straight onto royal blue cardstock and embossed using "snowflake tinsel" powder, and then decorated the tree with my new blue Ice Stickle. The sentiment is from Make My Mark in York, and the ribbon is from my stash.
