I've had a trio of SU stamps forever, and they have not seen an ink pad yet, so when I came across Valentines monthly challenge I thought why not have a go. This months challenge is 'Starstruck' and the only rule is that you must use a Stampin Up product somewhere on your project. My stars are on the backing paper and I have used one of my trio of stamps. I've used the sketch from this weeks Critter Sketch challenge as it was just the right shape for the image.
I wanted to use a star for the text tag but after attempting to draw on by hand I changed my mind and resorted to my Sizzix dies.
And here's my card....
Hope you all have a fab weekend!

Anyhoo... here's my card.
This is my entry for this fortnights Sketch & Stash challenge. My new(ish) stash is the larger flower punch and nesties and my neglected stash item is the PM Creative Tones paper! Hmmmmm....I appear to have this pad in several other colours too....shame on me.
Thanks for visiting!

As soon as I saw this LOTV image I knew I just had to get it! It's just sooooooooooo cute.
I did find the penguins tricky to colour with my Promarkers though. As I built up the greys to get the darker areas it bled and looked really messy. Not had this before......has anyone else had this kind if problem? I thought maybe my card had got a bit damp, but all the other colours were ok ....... Maybe my dark grey is a bit 'juice' still as it's not been used much before.
Anyway, I made such a pigs ear of it that I coloured in another image and used Prisma Color pencils to do the penguins instead, cut them out and added them over the top of the bodged ones. Must admit I like the decoupaged look so it works for me. Did the sledge too.
Those delish papers are a freebie download from Jak Heath's fab blog, why not pop over and visit.
Well that's it for me for now, thanks for stopping by!

Oh boy, I've never been this organised before........ bit scary really!
Still, I dug down deep into the draw and out popped this gorgeous fella and so I set about playing. And here is the result.....
I would like to enter my card into the Christmas Club challenge who's challenge this week is to use 'glitter, ribbons & gems'. Now try as I might I could not find a ribbon that worked, soooooooo I made my own 'paper ribbon' with a snowflake punch and a thin strip of matching card........I hope this counts.
Thanks for stopping by.

Inspired by my previous 2 cards I thought I'd have a go at a bit of paper piercing & decoupage with this FF bear. I stamped the image onto my base card and then 3 more times onto some fab wood grain paper I've had in my stash forever. Cut out the layers and lightly embossed the backs to give a bit of shape, stuck down with silicone adhesive and voila! The balloon was stamped onto a scrap of white card and coloured with Promarkers and just for good measure I covered it with glossy accents and a sprinkling of fine glitter. The embossed swirls & dots were done using a Fiskars shapeboss. Text on PC and a few card candy to finish.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me!

Now just before the show I also ordered some fab rolls of raffia lace from Hobbycraft which were there waiting for me when I arrived home. It is one of these that I have played with first. This was a nice quick & easy card to get me started using a freebie Bentley Bear decoupage kit that's been sat on a shelf for some time.
