Stepper Card

Hi all - this card is a sneak peek at one of my samples for Aprils Card Social - which is our monthly get together - I have cardlifted from a magazine called Papercraft Inspirations Issue 97 - the original card was designed by Jacqui Dennis - the first piccy is from the magazine

The next few piccys are my version of this card which also used the freebie image from LOTV -
This is the box i made for the card coz it was too fat to fit in the envelope LOL
This is the card in the box

As you can see i have used doilies - punches - flourish die - and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - the lace is from my Aunt and i made the Hat Pin - i colored the image using my spectrum noir pens except for the skin which was done using flexmarkers.

hope you like looking 
love n stuff Kym xx

Todays Cards

Hi all in blogland - Tuesdays for me are get together days with my lovely card making friends and to be honest with you i usually spend more time chatting and giggling and drinking tea that i very rarely actually make a card - well today was a good day i made a couple of cards so i thought i would share them with you.This first card is a variation of a beautiful card that my online friend Jane sent me it is a stamped flourish with jewels stuck to it a very less is more card - totally out of character for me LOL.
The next card was an idea from my friend Sue - i think she said she saw something similar on a load of old Pickle blog  - it is a lovely idea - it is achieved by scoring your card (i used my Hougie Board) and then simply mattering and laying - the embellishments that were used were a cheeryLynn flourish and some punched flowers with gems(i got mine from Mei Flower) in the centre - my sentiment was produced on the puter but you could use a stamp or peel offs - Thanks Sue you're a star
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards - love n stuff Kym xx

Mo's Digi Stamp

Hi again all you bloggers - i am back from dancing and decided to put this birthday card together - i have used a digi stamp from http://digitalpenciltoo.com/ - i colored the image with spectrum noir pens and letraset flexmarkers - the papers came free with my simply cards and papercraft magazine - the flourish is a cheery lynn die the broderie & lace came from my stash and the brad came from wild orchid crafts - thats probably it for today - ya know none of the cards i have made today have ended up the way i imagined them - go figure

 This is a close up of the colored image
Hope you enjoy looking at my latest effort - all comments greatly appreciated - Kym xx

Pink Card

Hi Guys - i cannot believe it but its the 4th March and its snowing here - i hate the snow really really hate it - i know that sounds quite strong but its true.

Well i have been doing some more coloring with my new spectrum noir pens - i have to say that they are not bad pens at all - except i seem to have a lot of trouble getting the lids off - on the other hand i have trouble getting the lids of my flex-markers as well.

This card is the end result - The image is from http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/ and its stamped with memento ink pad - the papers are from a g.c.d studios pad called Rose Colored Glasses - i have used spellbinder nesties and labels dies - also a paper doily and the lace was gathered by me and made into a circle and the flower is from WildOrchid Crafts. as usual let me know what you think - Kym xx

 This is a close up of the doily and gathered lace.
