The sweet Stop Challenge #8

I have found a new challenge to participate in called The Sweet Stop and I love the sketch very simple and I shall be using it again.

I have used this lovely magnolia stamp, some K&Co papers, nesties circle and scallop dies, Anita's saying both inside and out...I have gone simple no floral embellishment this time round.
I followed the sketch through to the inside and I stamped in the centre of the circle a flower in memento rich cocoa, so that the flowers look faded in the back grown and then stamp the sentiment in black.

Well have a nice weekend and thanks fot stopping by.


Just a reminder that the WOF New Stamp set release date is 14 June, I will be getting mine so hop over there and get yours. Katherina is also given away two lovely blog candy which includes those lovely stamps.

Card Combo

Now I have combined this card with 3 challenges, the first is The Just Magnolia Challenge which is paper piecing, the next is Friday sketchers the sketch is just nice and simple.

The other one is Cute Card Thursday is to have a Quotation on your card. I went with a floral pink and red with a little blue and I used this lovely old Magnolia stamp, stamped her on plain card and coloured her face, hands, stockings and inner blouse with copics then I stamp her again on decorative paper to get the dress and bow on her head. I also follow the sketch through to the inside, I have curled two corners of the smaller paper and I have included one of my own personal sentiment and as I look back on it now there is a spelling error "the" should have been a "that"
I have also used on this card a cuttlebug embossing folder, nesties circle plane and large scalloped octagons, coredination card and did a bit of sanding, gems, ribbon and flowers.
I also used Anna Griffin and K&Co paper and MS punch. Thanks for stopping by.

Just for you

Now as promised I am posting this card for two challenges the first is The Next Level you have to follow their lovely tutorial on making a ribbon frame which is great and I am sure you will see that technique on my cards again. Then the next challenge is the sketch at Stamp with Fun another wonderful challenge.

I have used this lovely image from the new WOJ stamp set and I can't wait to get some of the other new stamps coming out on June 14. I used copics for colouring, buttons, leaf punch, K&Co papers, ribbon and two small heart chipboard embellishment.
Here is a look at the inside I kinda left off some of the layers as it would make the card too heavy.
Well hope you like my take on the sketch, Thanks for stopping by.
