3 Cute Mouse Cards / 2 Others

This very cute stamp is a Penny Black one from the Margaret Sherry collection. It is called "Here's Looking at You! 1671K. I have used watercolour pencils from W.H.Smiths to colour the image. The backing paper is from my stash, sorry I don't know where I got it from.


This Vintage Car stamp is from Creative Stamping LL 219 F. Again I have used W.H.Smiths watercolour pencils to colour with. Backing paper once again from my stash.

Another cutie stamp from Penny Black also from the Margaret Sherry collection. This one is called "Say Cheesecake" 1644L. Again watercoloured with W.H.Smiths watercolour pencils. Paper from stash.


This card was started at my once a month Tuesday craft club. I used Lynne's template/card/papers, the only thing that was mine was the peels offs to finish it off down the side.



Once again a cutie from Penny Black's Margaret Sherry collection. This one is called "Cheesecake Dreams" 1661F. Sorry to get boring but once again I used W.H.Smiths watercolour pencils and the paper was from my stash. I will have to stop making cutie cards from Penny Black and do something else but I enjoy making them and my customers seem to buy them.
Thank you so much for looking and any comments you might like to leave. I hope I haven't bored you with my blog the past few weeks as the cards I have made may not be everyone's cup of tea in being in the cute section. Some people just don't like cute!!!!

5 Cutie Cards

This card below has been made by using the Crafters Companion CD-ROM Popcorn the Bear. This a triple CD -ROM collection and I have used the one called FLORALS. Gems and ribbon from my stash have been added.



I thought I had all the Hedgehog stamps from Penny Black but I was wrong. I stamped this image at one of my Craft Clubs when we had a bring along your stamps and share evening. So sorry I don't know the number or title of this one. I am even presuming it is in the Penny Black range.
This one again was stamped on the same evening. I really liked working with this one and must ask at the club whose it was that I borrowed and what it is called and who made it. So cute I could image my dear departed cat D 'Arcy doing this.


Another borrowed stamp from the same evening. Another adorable stamp.



And yet again another borrowed one from the same evening.



Thank you for taking the time to look.

Three Jayne Nesterenko Workshop Cards.

As my friends will know I was lucky enough to attend another one of Jayne Nesterenko's great workshops on Sunday. These are the three cards we made during the day. It was a very fast moving workshop, hence mistakes were made by me. My darling husband who is my photographer had to be persauded to take these photos as he felt they are far from being my best work. Lol!!!!



The above card was made using the Summer Stories CD ROM by Cute Companions from Crafter's Companion. The Scene is the Friends Gate Scene A5. It has been decoupaged. The little girl mouse has been stamped using Friends Summer Stories Stamp set and both front and back views of her have been stamped. She has been watercoloured using H20's. The scene and little mouses knickers have been glittered. The gate opens.


The Ponsettia Medallion stamp has been used for this card above and the middle stamped and cut out for the trees. The matting stripe has also been stamped using more areas of the stamp. The trees have been watercoloured using H20's.


This bauble card was messy but great fun to make. The matting card is a green card misted with 3 Cosmic Shimmer Misters - Lava Red, not sure if it was Meadow Lust or Peacock Green, Golden Mint. The bauble peeloffs are mounted and cut out from white card misted with 2 Cosmic Shimmer Misters - Lava Red, Golden Mint. The corners of the matting card have been stamped with a flourish stamp.
If you have a chance to go on one of Jayne's workshops you must go it is a great experience.
Thank You for looking today and I hope you are all well.
