Cute Card Thursday 'Sport'

This is my last card until I get back off holiday, we're off to Tenerife tomorrow afternoon, whooo hooo.

It's my entry into this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The theme this week is sport, which gave me the opportunity to dig out this Cuddly Buddly stamp. I stamped the football over a piece of white card for the background. The striped paper is PP and the border is a Fiskars punch. I coloured the image with Faber Castell pencils and finished with some grosgrain ribbon . A really quick card. Hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend. Sounds like you're gonna get some decent weather. Hugs.x

Elegant Lady

Hi all, hope you are all well. I've not been a good blogger lately, been so busy, work is hectic, we have an Ofsted inspection next week, so everyone like chicken with no head. lol.

Just wanted to upload these two cards before I forget after sending them of to their respective destinations.

First, the Elegant Lady card, I made this for my SIL, I think she prefers the more 'grown up' type card, so this is for her and this is what I used:

The Elegant stamp is from Clarity Stamps
Leaves are a roller stamp using a jumbo wheel
Sentiment stamp is HOTP
Ribbon from stash

I masked off the two sides of the card and rollered down the sides. I used some black holographic embossing powder (you probably can't see this on the piccie) and then sponged some 'Fired Brick' Distress ink on top of the leaf stamp.

The lady has also been embossed with clear embossing powder. Something a bit different!

This card is for my nephew, a typical male sort of card. This is what I used for this one:

SU Stamp from the 'Cheers' set
SU Scallop edge punch
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Ribbon from Raspberry Ribbon kit

Hope you have a great weekend and the weather isn't too dismal, although it would be a good excuse to carry on crafting! Bye.X

The sentiment was hand written. I got the idea for this from Kath's blog.
