Football Girl

A feminine football card today, because girls like football too!

 I used a wood mounted Francoise Read, 'Footy Girl' stamp, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Nocturne' and coloured with Promarkers.  The background is embossed with a  Crafter's Companion football embossing folder.

I added a strip of football ribbon, a Stampin' Up sentiment and a football peeloff.

Inside Out Card

The Butterfly Challenge ends in a few hours.  I thought I had another week...... is anyone else losing track of the days and weeks at the moment?  The challenge is 'I for Inside Out Card'.  I've never seen this fold before, but I really wanted to try it.  I've included all the other elements for the challenge too - Ivory/Iceberg (very light blue)/Inch Worm (pale green) /Inking + Butterfly.

This is the front of the card, with the instructions of what to do.   The patterned paper included all three colours of the challenge and I used plain card in these three colours too.  The butterfly is a stamp from Stampin' Up 'Butterfly Gala', coloured with Promarkers (the Inking part of the challenge).  I added a few pale green pearls to the front.

When the card is turned inside out, the inside becomes the outside.  The 'Thank You So Much' is an Impression Obsession die cut, cut three times and stuck together to make sure it stood up.  The sentiment is another Stampin' Up stamp.  The card stands up Inside Out. 

This little video shows how the card works.  You might have to click on Play twice.

Anyone for a sweet?.....

A bright and cheerful card today.  A friend told me that she calls it a Bench Fold, although it may have a different name.  It's really easy to do, just two rectangles scored and folded and stuck together. 

Edited to add the measurements I used for my card:
Long piece - 4 1/2" wide x  length of a A4 sheet of card (UK size, just under 12" long) Score at 1/2", 2", 4 1/2", 6".
Short piece - 4" x 6".  Score at 1/2", 2".  (Width can be altered to fit the image.)

The image and sentiment are digi stamps from Beccy's Place 'Sweet as Candy' set.  I decided to use the outline image and I coloured it with Promarkers.  I used Memory Box 'Stitched Square Layers' dies for matting and layering.  I bought the ribbon ages ago and it was perfect to go with this image.  The patterned paper is from a freebie paper pads which came with a magazine.

Anniversary Diamonds

An anniversary card to share today.

The focus of my card is five solid silver hearts, encrusted with diamonds. Okay....... a bought a 2 metre string of these hearts for £1, so perhaps they're not genuine. 😉 I've had the hearts for ages and wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them, until now.  The embossing folder I used is by Creative Expressions, 'Swirling Hearts'. I added a few red and silver Card Candi.
