Sassy Cheryls Stamps - again!

Hi all!
This wasn't intended to happen but when creativity takes hold, it's important to go with the flow, make what needs to be made then blog about it - even though it wasn't expected!!!
Sometimes it just happens!

So, I made yet ANOTHER card for Sassy Cheryl's Stamps - Making Cards magazine call out!

This time, I chose the Final destination digi stamp as this little fella is just so cute watching the cuddly caterpillar wriggle on by!

I have used white cardstock and an unbranded patterned cardstock to make the card, along with Spectrum Noir blendable pencils, alcohol markers, and unbranded coloured gemstones.
I saw the sentiment online and typed it into my digital designer before printing it off onto white card.

I started with a 7 x 5" white card base and added a layer of patterned card to the front leaving a 5mm white border all around.
I die cut 2 pierced rectangles and took the centres out of each one to create a frame and glued the smaller one to the largest.
3D foam is added to the back before placing centrally on the card front.
Once I'd finished colouring the digi image, I die cut it out using a smaller pierced rectangle die then drew a contrasting border around the image for interest.
This was glued to the centre of the frame and sentiments added.

All finished!

So, again,  that's all for now folks!!!

See y'all soon.

Sassy Cheryls Stamps

Hi de hi peeps!

My last post mentioned the British weather - the rain.
Well, since then "the sun has been cracking the flags" as we say here in Lancashire!

Yes, summer has arrived and it has been fabulous. I love the hot weather (just not the hot nights when you find it difficult to sleep 😞 ).

So, as tired as I've been, I've still managed to find time "In My Craftroom Daily" (check out my new  Facebook page!) to create this lovely card for Sassy Cheryls stamps.
Cheryl's designs are just so darned cute and I couldn't resist making this lovely card for her "call-out" for cards which may possibly be featured in an issue of Making Cards Magazine!
How exciting!

I hope you like her - I know I do!

I purchased the Be your own kind of beautiful digi image from Cheryl's store and printed her onto white cardstock.

If you'd like instructions as to how I made the rest of the card, please do get in touch!
I took inspiration for this from QCME magazine design team member Julie Gibbs.

That's all for now peeps!
