BB In the Spotlight

I decided to spotlight part of the image and I wanted to use squares so I have used a square spotlight and dies to cut out the image.

Here is my card:


The image used is from Penny Black Fairy Sweet collection.  The image was stamped twice on Xpress It with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The dies used were from SU Square Framelits and Spellbinders Nestablilities Captivating Squares collection.


Here is a close up of the spotlight image:


The image and the squares were layered up with SU Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the SU Beautiful Promenade set and stamped in Fresh Fig ink Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment was punched out with the SU retired Ticket Punch.

The copic markers used are:

Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 11, R21

PB Autumn Splendor


Hi everyone,

I was so lucky to be asked to create a card as a Guest Designer at the
Penny Black and More Challenges.

The theme for the challenge is Autumn Splendour and this theme can lend itself to so many fabulous ideas, from the colour, nature or even a combination of both.

I have used a floral image from the Penny Black Bouquets stamp set and stamped the image in
SU Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajan Craze inks on SU Very Vanilla cardstock to
create the back ground.

I then added another layer of the Cajan Craze cardstock, which has one site punched out to create a border.

Here is my card:



The sentiment is from the SU Painted Harvest stamp set and stamped in SU Old Olive.

I then added another image from the Penny Black Bouquets stamp set in the top corner of the sentiment cardstock.

Here is a close up of the sentiment.


Please visit the challenge if you get a chance, I am sure they Design Team would love to see your creations.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Sentiment and Dies

Hello and welcome.

I decided to go through my stash and see what dies I could you use to create a card around a sentiment.

The dies that I have used are both Spellbinders and the sentiment is from the SU stamp set Floral Phrases.

Here is my card:



The sentiment was stamped on SU Whisper White with SU Highland Heather ink and then die cut using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Ten.

The other layered die is Spellbinders Nestabilities Opulent Ovals.

So just throwing a little challenge out there to see what you can create with a sentiment and some dies



The DSP used is the beautiful SU Petal Promenade.

SG Spots and Dots


Hello and welcome.

I am share with you a post for our new challenge at Southern Girls Challenges.

Our theme - Spots and Dots
Our sponsor - The Paper Shelter

I have used a sponsors pre-coloured digital image called She's Charming.

The image comes with a printed background and I adjusted the size to what I wanted and printed the image with the background.

I then printed the coloured images individually two (2) more times.

I then cut out various parts of the image and paper pieced them on the base image to add a little height and depth the card.

Here is my card: 



I layered the hair, makeup sponge, bow and dress.

Here is a close up of the image.


I stamped the sentiment which is from the SU Postcard Pals stamp set.

It reads " Hope your day is filled with fun and lots of Happy Surprises!"
