Friday Sketch challenge goes for a Walk in the Coutryside

A Walk in the Countryside

My DT card for the Friday Sketch Challenge this week features items from A Walk in the Countryside CD. I purchased this a while ago when it was on Create and Craft but have not used it up until now.

A Walk in the Countryside

The main image has been triple embossed and all the papers, image and embellishments are from the CD, except the leaves, which are cut using a new Crafts Too die available at Cullen Crafts. The Thank You stamp is from the Chronology Freebie set that came with the Docrafts Magazine.

Another moment of Clarity

Clarity Club stamp and Spellbinders Dies

Its time for another sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge blog:
This fortnight we are sponsored by Noor design, so pop over and have a go.
I have been having yet another play with February’s Clarity Design Club stamp. This one was stamped with Versamark and then had Mica powder applied. I then cut up the squares and cut out the circle part and assembled them back together to give the 2 toned look to each corner.

Card made with Spellbinders Mbossabilities and dies

I have been playing with my Clarity Stamp Club stamp for February, the more I look at it, the more shapes I can see to cut out, I stamped it this time with Versamark and then used Mica powder over the top, you cant see from the picture but the pink flowers have a really great coppery sheen to them.

Clean and simple flower made with hearts

It’s time for a new sketch over at the Friday Sketch challenge blog and here it is:


Sometimes you just need a wee card for nothing other than to say hello and that is where this one comes in. I used my new stamp set from Oak House Studios called A Stitch in Time.  I love how versatile this set is and I think the hearts make fab flowers don’t you? I used a few bits of Post it notes to mask off the heart shapes as I stamped the next and then I coloured the flower in using my Copics. The papers are from the Lucy Cromwell collection by Papermania and I triple embossed the button stamps to make them look a little more button like.

Clean and simple card with a heart
