StampTV Challenge GKMay10LM

This card was for a StampTV challenge GKMay10LM, the challenge was to cover the main image with something, I have covered mine with clear embossing powder, really like how it turned out, this was stamped on a thin card and heat embossed from underneath which seems to give a smoother finish.

StampTV colour challenge stvcctg13

Here is my entry for the colour challenge, which was burgundy, metallic gold and white. The stamp is from The Greeting Farm and is called Me Time Anya, I got this from Polka Dot Crafts who is run by two lovely ladies who are so generous with their time, inspiration, knowledge etc so please do have a look at their web site. As one of these lovely ladies is my best friend who has stood by me through thick and thin I am completely biased in their favour hehehe.

StampTV sketch challenge stvscvd12

This card has been made with the Fairy Tales stamps from StampTV for this weeks sketch challenge. I love this little frog so much. He is such a cute chap. He was inspired by a visit to Blijdorp zoo on Monday, there was one enclosure with very high fences, all I could see were some frogs, it crossed my mind that the frogs couldn't jump that high and how dangerous could they be??? It turns out that the enclosure is for the tigers but they were sleeping in the shade where I could not see them hehehe.

smART-Word Challenge May 2010

The smARt word for May was 'flower', hmmm where to start with creating a card, I have so many different flower stamps that it has taken me ages to decide, but here it is. I stamped the flower 4 times, twice on cream and twice on the patterned paper, I layed the first three, slightly offsetting them, then cut out some of the petals on the last cream layer. A very simple design for the card layout, but that is kind of me all over. Thanks for looking.
