Puppy love

Black and white. I love that combination. I haven’t got much black here, but plenty of grey! To jazz it up a little I decided to add a chunk of red! And not a lot else. The red was pretty powerful on its own, I thought. The pre coloured image is by Lili of the Valley. I have the pad with these animals and mostly grey tones. So cute!


Home is where my honey bee

Another monday, another challenge at Paper Playtime. This week we’d like you to ‘use a bee’. My bee is from Pink Petticoat. I could not resist it when I saw the sentiment! The image with its black border is raised a bit using sticky pads. The rhinestones have been in my stash for a year and a half or so, the ribbon is from a local shop and floral border is made with a Martha Stewart Puncher. I then drew a black border around the card with my black copic marker.


Golden Art Deco

A while ago I went to a Range store in Essex, England. I found some gorgeous art deco images with matching accessories: papers, feathers, flowers, greetings and so on. Here is the first card I made using some of the bits I purchased. I used the newly acquired image, greeting and black feather, some old black lace I had laying about and some papers. I distressed around the edge of the white card blank and folded a corner down on the background paper. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The photo has a yellow tint to it, so it’s not quite as yellow as this looks.


Happy New Year

Happy new year, everybody! Hopefully this post finds you full of energy for starting a new year and that you are still following whatever ambitious new year resolutions you decided on this year!

I only have a simple card for you today. The background papers are plain shimmering silver and a black and white patterned paper, which may or may not be a BoBunny one. One of my new years resolutions is that I shall pay closer attention to which papers I use when I make cards, haha! The pre coloured image is by Lili of the Valley, as is the stamp I’ve used in the corner. I’ve used dies to create the scalloped edge around it.

Allsorts – It’s as plain as black and white
