Blue Rose

I wanted to use the Two tier eclipse technique from Falliday Fest with a new die I bought but knew I wanted to add a flower by the greeting - the Flower challenge determined it had to be a rose - one of my favourite flowers. There are lots of prizes for the Flower Challenge Birthday and the Dies to Die for voucher would be on my wish list!

I added stitching and chose the paper after looking at the inspiration shoes and boots from last Saturday. I thought I had some blue / mauve flowery paper similar to this boot but if I have I couldn't find it!
My card looks nothing like the boot but it did start me off!

Thank you for looking

Sassy Cheryl Snowmen

I can't remember who guided me to Sassy Cheryl images but suspect it was Faye who teaches Copic classes.

I love them and the snowmen have been fun to turn into Christmas cards. Here are 4 that I have yet to put up in my Splitcoast gallery and a couple that have already been shown there.

The first image is Snowmen in Love and the other one I used is Snowman Selfie (I think). Coloured with Copics and on one a little paper piecing. Decoration added with glitter pens and a white pen (why are those pens so troublesome?)

Tiddlyinks 3 of 3

Tiddlyinks have a new blog and a challenge going on right now. The details can all be found here.

I made 3 cards altogether - one using this week's Splitcoaststampers colours and one of the cute Tiddlyinks girls, another using the lovely cala lilies and a third using the newly released giraffe with added top hat, bow tie and cake for an 18th birthday on Tuesday.

 This one was cut with oval dies and a banner die was used for the sentiment. It fits in with the November CCC challenge of shaped cards

 This card is going to a friend who recently started a new job. It was inspired by a picture she has on her wall. The background panel was done with gilding flakes on a deep red card and then sprayed with a gold glitter varnish. The image was coloured with Copics.

This last card features the cute giraffe to which I added the top hat, bow tie and cake. I have used lots of blue for the football team supported! I used a new die for the wavy cuts and some old cuttlebug dies for the 18. The sentiment is from MFP.

Thanks for visiting and checking out my latest creations.

New Grandniece Sienna

Our niece Lauren gave birth to her first baby on Tuesday after a pretty anxious wait. I have yet to meet baby Sienna but in the photos I have seen she looks beautiful. I have made her a very pink card.
