Bah Humbug Challenge#11 - Peel Offs

Afternoon peeps, I got quite wet this morning to say the least going round our town centre shopping and paying bills!! I did have a lovely breakfast out though and popped into the saloon where I sell my cards and I had sold another 12 in two weeks so more money for my craft pot.

My two cards today are not my usual style but I do have a lot of Peel Offs and Stickers that I do not tend to use. This is my first time of entering Bah Humbug challenge, I just missed it last week by half an hour and it was my favourite Vintage. Never mind. This week it is Peel Offs but the kind ladies have said you can use Stickers if you want to.


Both the cards that I have produced this week I have used the main card from Kanban and also the Stickers. The ribbon is from Celebrate - RA 13007.32 7mm x 6m.
Thank You for looking.

3 Clarity Butterfly Cards / 1 Vintage Post Card Card

Hi again this is my 3rd posting of the afternoon. This time blogger has just managed to twist one of the butterfly cards. They are all three the same size and image Lol!!! Just different colours so it can not like Pink.

This card has been taken from my Post Card collection. My hubby has photographed them for me ,so I thought I would print one of them onto Satin Photo paper and make a card of it. It is called "Caught Napping" The bp is from Laura Ashley and aptly called "Love Song"

I have made these three Butterfly cards with a borrowed stamp from a friend. She did tell me what it was called but I am afraid I have forgotten. It is from Clarity Stamps that I do know. For this one I have used Orange tones Promarkers and the bp is Brenda Walton's 6 x 6 Scrapbook Designer papers by K & Company.

This one I have used Pink tones Promarkers.


This one I have used green tones Promarkers. The bp for the pink and green cards are from Super K pad by Brenda Walton 12 x 12 from K & Company.

My OH doesn't like this card and says it isn't my usual standard. Lol!!! The colouring medium is Promarkers. The bp's are from The Stack 6 by DCWV.

Good afternoon. Hope you are all well and fighting fit. My mouth is a little easier today but I am still dosing myself up with painkillers and using a mouthwash twice a day. It hurts to eat and drink and I never thought I would say that I dreaded eating. Lol!!!

The colouring medium today was a mixture of H20's & Cosmic Shimmers. The Doily is from Ribbon Box and I have coloured it with Sun Flower Yellow Brilliance Archival inkpad. The flower is from my stash. I am entering this for CACB as it is to use a new technique/product or fold/design. I do not usually use Doilies or ink things to colourise them.
