Punch it with Lili of the Valley!

The challenge for the last week over on the Lili of the Valley Thursday challenge blog has been Punch It!

I just made this card with a new Martha Stewart round the corner punch...I really wanted to get the flowery one, but decided that, practically speaking, the leafy one would be more universal in that it would be OK for guy cards as well as girly cards.

The tab was also a punch, namely Stampin up, apart from this dies were Tim Holtz and Spellbinders nesties. Colouring was with Copic markers and distress inks and stamps were Lili of the Valley and my dotty stamp. Papers were from the Treasury.

U is for Up In The Air

Over on the Alphabet Challenge Blog the challenge this week is "U is for Up In The Air". I thought that the new swinging Tatty Button stamp would be perfect for this. The image was coloured using copic markers. The papers and dotty stamp were all from the Treasury. The sentiment was a custom stamp from TandaStamps.

Gilding the Lily

The latest Tanda Teaser is called Gilding the Lily...we've had a few difficult teasers over the last month so I thought it would be good to do something a bit easier....hence just to use a bit of gold somewhere on the project....I guess I went a bit overboard...gold ep, gold card and gold glimmer mists!

The beautiful lady is a download from the Craft Stamper web site..the stamp is from Tanda and the colouring is done with distress inks......bit of lace and a bit of machine stitching and voila!

Back to Front Tanda Teaser and R is for Ribbons

As usual things got a bit hectic this week so yet again I am late posting my Tanda entry on my own blog...It is over on the Tanda Blog if you want to join in.

I'm not going to go into too many details because I am going to be showing people how to make this card at a workshop on 26th March at The Treasury in Kidderminster. If you are interested in coming please phone Pat on 01562 510203. We will be making two other cards as well.

For this card I used distress ink (Black Soot) and copic markers, but for the workshop we shall be doing something slightly different.

I was very happy to see that this week's Alphabet Challenge is R is for Ribbon as I have used a whopping great big ribbon on my card! So I'm hoping that they don't mind me entering their challenge too! Fingers crossed.
