Two Cards 2 Challenges - The Secret Crafter & Ismaki


The Secret Crafter

has a great sketch this week and some brilliant DT cards to give us inspiration, so why not pop over there and join in.


Last night the terrible wind kept me awake, so after a week of no inspiration and no real desire to craft, I suddenly had the urge to make a couple of cards, so hopefully I am back to normal (or normal for me). The first card I made was for Secret Crafter, this is the first time I have entered this challenge but will not be the last, great sketch girls. My Christmas Sarah Kay stamps arrived fron Crafty Krafts on Saturday morning, and I fell in love with this one. It has been colourd with Distress Inks and H20's with glitter added on the little boys surpluses and around the candles. The papers are BG. The Corner and swirl were cut with Cuttlebug using Sizzix dies, The Sentiment is from WOJ and the flowers from Poppicraft. The little parcels are a Forever Friends Stamp which I paper pieced. I used my Martha Stewart Doyley punch for the first time. Hope you like.


This second card is for
Ismaki
it is ages since I entered an Ismaki Challenge. This cute image is a High Hopes stamp and has also been coloured with Distress Inks and H20's, with added glitter, the fabulous papers are My Minds Eye, I just adore the new Christmas range of these papers. Snowflakes were punched with a Fiskars Punch, with flattened bead caps and half pearls in the centre. The flowers are Prima fron Crafts U Love. Rest from Stash. May be back later with a few more cards I have on the go. Have a great Sunday everyone and thanks for looking

Both cards are stunning ;) You could also join the Basic Grey challenge with the secret crafters one ;) Theme is shapes and I see enough shapes ;)
Hope your MOJO is back to normal now. Else we have to kick it in the behind! Because we can not have it that you don't have inspiration ;)

hugs Ria
