For this project I wanted to try a Monochrome card using one of the Sweet Adorable stamps from Sugar Nellies.

I used copics and polychromos to colour this image.

I riped out the middle of the cardstock to create a frame ane embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I used an ink pad to distress the torn edges.

The flourish was cut using a Magnolia die.

The embellishments were faux brads and flowers.

Challenge #buttons real or faux


For this project I used a stamp from Sugar Nellies, Home Grown range (Autumn kit) and coloured with copics and polychromos pencils.  I used a fine liner pen to create the border.

The backing papers were from my stash ( I think Quitoxic Paperie) and the plain cardstock was from Crafters Companion.

I used spellbinders to cut the leaves and added pearls and ribbons to complete the project.

This has been an eventful week, computer has been playing up so have been unable to get much done due to the length of time its taken trying to get things to load.  Everything working fine now so hopefully will be able to catch up!

Up until 4.00 am. this morning and woken up by Postman at 9.00 a.m. so will probably dose off at some point this morning - hoping to post three cards made last night!

For this project I decided to use a stamp I haven't used for a time from Sugar Nellies Home Grown range of stamps.

I coloured with copics and polychromo pencils.  I used a gold calligraphy pen to edge the image.

The papers were from my card stash (I think from QVC) and the plain cardstock was from Crafters Companion.

All the embellishments were also from QVC  (petaloo flower, flower, faux brads, gems)

The flourish was cut with a Magnolia die.
