A Few of my Favourite Things

It was Lauren’s turn to set last weeks challenge at the Let’s Get Stamping group on Craftbubble.Here’s the sketch:

A twist of ‘Favourite Things’  had also been thrown into the equation.With that in mind I knew exactly which stamp I was going to plump for.She’s called Dreamer (a Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits) and that’s precisely what I am!I’ve teamed her with some of my favourite products too:Promarkers,white gel pen,Stickles,Papermania Textured card and a Lip Pattern corner punch.I love these K & Co papers so much.The colours,the faux stitching,flowers,scallops,spots and stripes. 

A close up of the Stickles:

I love creating cards with texture.Here I’ve used some jute ribbon,the D’vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder with some sanding and Tea Dye Distress Ink swiped over the top.A threaded button has also been added.It’s a real shame it was so dull and grey here yesterday as the detail on the button really doesn’t show.It’s actually debossed with a flower design.

I adore this colour combo and it reminds of the Sun in the Summer sky.There’s also a chocolate and flower undercurrent running through this card.And who doesn’t love to receive them as a gift?!

I’m sooo excited to show off my new stamp!! She’s sooo adorable!!She’s actually part of a stamp plate called Mouser-kins from Faerie Song Rubber Art Stamps.She’s been coloured with a selection of Promarkers and has ( although it doesn’t show ) clear Atyou Spica on the star.As the base card I’ve used is cream I toned down the whiteness of the card I stamped the image onto using Old Paper Distress Ink and gave some definition to the edges with the Tan Promarker.All papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.I’ve also used some raffia lace and grosgrain ribbon.Although it’s not on the sketch I couldn’t resist using a button especially as it matched so perfectly.I love these ones with the big hole in the middle and as much as it grieves me I REALLY need to use some of my button stash up before they take over the whole house.I’ve got buttons like you’d never believe!!I’ve also used my Lip Pattern Punch and a Martha Stewart Zig Zag Edge Punch.
