Fast & Fabulous Sparkle

Fast & Fabulous VW'13 (4)Hi bloggies!

I am hoping I might get some stamping done today … but must be self disciplined and do my house cleaning first! Sandy is occupied with a friend from church … so perhaps I might get to my craft desk sometime? I already have this post ready to go … and so here is today’s card …….

Fast & Fabulous VW'13 (1)Fast & Fabulous VW'13 (3)This card was such a fast & fabulous one to make! Pardon the pun! 😀 It is so pretty IRL (in real life) … but the photos don’t really do it justice! The inspiration for this card was a gorgeous creation by Marion Vagg. I have actually added an extra layer to mine … and some bling (of course!) … and used a different colour card … but basically it is the same! 😀 The flowers are white embossed and coloured with SU! markers. Then I have added some Dazzling Details to the petals. Super Q&E but really effective! A CARD RECIPE with all the details is at the end of this post!

I have another couple of cards to share … this first is another CASE via Pinterest …

Sympathy Grahame Jan'14Card Inspiration: Loll Thompson

And … the next card was just something I was playing around with one day …

Balloons MasD'13The main penguin image is actually a clip art picture from the internet that I printed out and then I coloured the beak and feet with markers! The balloons are die cuts from Frantic Stamper (Elizabeth Craft Designs). So … when you can’t find a suitable stamp image … try a black & white print out of some clip art! Worked for me! 😀

Well … better go and do that cleaning! See you all soon! Hugs xxx
