Sticker Stamps

Good morning all!
I have some cards to share with you today!

Have you heard about the new sticker stamps from La Pashe?
They are clear & self adhesive, & can be coloured with markers, pencils or crayons, 
left as they are or stuck on to coloured/patterned paper.

Here are the samples I made using them!

For this one I stck the sticker on to some patterened papers then die cut.
The papers I have used are from Bo Bunny.

This one was stuck on to some plain cardstock & once again die cut.
I'm pretty sure these papers are from DCWV

For this easel card, I used some metallic pencils to colour the sweets befor sticking 
on to some co-ordinating paper. The stop is a short & sweet easy peely verse.

I used alcohol markers for the balloons on this one.
I found it difficult to blend them so the colours are flat,
(but I am no expert at colouring)

This one was stuck to some pearlised card stck to give it some sheen.
I'm sure you'll agree they are very versaile & make a change from the usual digi or
stamped images. Perhaps they may be the sort of thing you could pack for some
 holiday crafting!

 Bailey will be on Create & Craft TV demonstrating the funky new

Eighteen Candles

Good morning all!
I'm back with another card!
This one is for my niece who is 18 today
Happy Birthday Katie.

The card base is 8"x8"
The papers are by American Crafts & have been in my stash for ages.
I love how bright & cheerful they are.
The candles were cut using a Tattered Lace die.
They were a real labour of love to cut but I think the end result 
was well worth the effort!
I've added a little sparkle to the flames using a sakura pen.
The Happy Birthday die came from a crafty friends stash clearout so I have
no idea who it's by! I backed it with white cs to make it stand out a bit more.
A few sequins & punched butterflies to further embellish......
et voilĂ !
Thnks for thevisit!
I hope you like my card!

King Of The Jungle

Good morning all!

It's Monday, it's time for the new challenge at Eureka Stamps
& I have a card to share with you!
The theme this week is

I've made a simple card, featuring the magnificent digi 13001 Lion
I changed the colour of the image in word & then printed
on to some ivory cardstock. The sentiment was printed too.
I added a little grounding with a brown pencil & distressed the edges with
serrated scissors.
The card base & the mats are the same rich brown colour,
 although they look different in the photo.
The paper is by First Edition, "Boho Chic"
I also added a little bit of lace & some raffia.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you can play along this week, Anything Goes is always
a great theme to join in with!
