Double Promise

Hello Nomad friends.  I have made a wedding card using brusho's and Paper Discovery dies.  

I thought it would be fun to have the engagement and the wedding on the same card so after I made my brusho background I used the eclipse technique for the engagement couple.  Then I cut the bridal couple from black card and the sentiment from silver mirror card.

You Call It A Clapperboard.............

Hello Nomad friends.  There's a new fun challenge over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity and it's called Mini Me.  We want to see smaller stamped makes like ATC, inchies, bookmarks, tags etc.  I made a tag using Carmen's Veranda's Alfred Hitchcock Standing and the wonderful Givashitometer sentiment.

I always wondered what that was called!
I've used Lost Coast Designs Grunge Border 2" on the tag with pink archival ink.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the tag but Alfred was stamped on white card, coloured with distress markers and fussy cut.  A bit of fancy wool and done.
Join the Mini Me fun and don't forget to hop over to the blog and check out all the awesome inspiration from the team.

On Safari

Hello Nomad friends.  It's the second of the month so time for the Card Chain Challenge Reveal.  If you like sending and receiving real handmade cards this is the place to be.  We hit a bit of a milestone this month, over 4000 cards sent and received!!!   4,005 bits of handmade love winging their way around the planet since 2009.  So if you have been thinking about joining the fun why not hop in for June.  The sign up closes 6th June.  This is the card I made for Dee in Kenya using the colours, sketch, ripped edges and friendship options.

Not sure the producer of the lovely moon and stars paper, it came in a Simon Says Stamp kit.  The star and sentiment stamps are both from Crafty Individuals.  This sentiment is one of my favourite to use on my CCC cards.  We have Jo to thank for the blue yellow colour combo this month and it was a very popular colour scheme.  It always makes me think of clear summer skies, blue oceans and warm beaches.  

If you would like to join probably the longest running card exchange in the universe you can

Don't forget to hop over and check out the REVEAL and all the awesome cards that winged their merry way around the planet.

May Rudolf Days

Hello Nomad friends.  It's the end of the month again!!  Already??!!  I do like to join Mo's Rudolf Days challenge so I had a rattle through the scraps and stamped images and came up with this cute snowangel snowman by Unity Stamps.

I stamped and embossed with white powder then smudged some blue ink and cut out the circle.  I added a ring of white lace and found a pretty edged scrap of green which I embossed with a confetti embossing folder.  The lovely red tree paper had a hole in it which my topper covered perfectly!  A Lost Coast Designs Happy Christmas stamp and mount on a green card base to finish.

Friends Are Golden

Hello Nomad friends.  I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  It's extra long here so I am hoping the warm weather returns so we can enjoy some garden time.  

I used a Kort og Godt patterned card base and cut Memory Bod Leafy Tree Frame from green card.  I added some yellow scraps cut into triangles inside the inner frame and stamped the bird from Poppystamps Christmas Friends set.  I coloured the bird and tree with Promarkers.  I offset the frames and added some vellum triangles and a piece of bird patterned paper behind the inner frame.   The sentiment says Good friends are worth gold.

Some Of My Favourite Things

Hello Nomad friends.  I hope you are having a splendiferous day.  Weather report from Norway; sunny spells and a very cold wind.  I was potting up tomato plants in the greenhouse when I had that missing out feeling.  Challenges closing soon, so I decided to gathers some scraps and use a new to me Gorjuss stamp and use the Lift Challenge recipe.

The pink scrap is a sheet I've been chopping bits off of recently.  It has some nice elements and glitter highlights which is why the clocks look so blingy.  The girl does look like she has big ears Grandma, but she is wearing headphones.  Probably easier to recognise when there is colour involved but I am embracing the black and white image idea whole heartedly this month.

Thanks for dropping by.  Take care.  Hugz

My Spirit Animal

Hello Nomad friends.  I took part in the Visible Image May Royal Purple ATC exchange.  My ATC went to Kathy in California and I just had to use my spirit animal - White Rabbit!!!   

For my ATC base I used a piece of card that was painted with purple Aztec pearlescent paint.  I stamped Visible Image T-Shirt on white card and then stamped White Rabbit onto the t-shirt and fussy cut.  I watercoloured the t-shirt with distress inks and my waterbrush with bling.  Got a bit of bleed of my ink and decided to blob some extra watercolour in places for a tie-dye look.  I coloured white rabbit with distress markers and also some sharpie markers for the royal purple, gold and silver and used the gold sharpie around the ATC edge.

I also sent a tie-dye style card using the white rabbit stamp set.
