Sweet Pea Stampers DT Card...........bit of nostalgia for me


Good morning my lovelies & what a beautiful morning it is again. WOW we really are getting spoilt by the weather just lately, it was so warm here yesterday I nearly put the roof down on the car when I did school run.....prob was I always take my yorkie Charlie with me as he loves the car so I was worried he would jump out if he saw something he liked......will have to get an harness I think lol.
Anyway this is my first post as a Sweet Stamper girl gosh I'm so excited yet nervous at the same time lol.
Our challenge this fortnight is
Pack A Punch so get them punches out peeps.
Now as you know its nearly a year since I started crafting well last June I coloured my 1st Sweet Pea stamp I was so nervous colouring it cus I had only been doing this colouring lark about 6 weeks at the time & I was still trying to get to grips with it lol. Anyway as its my 1st DT post I thought I would go back to my first stamp.....its great to see how we have progressed since then.
Here is 'Seeing Through' by one of my fave artists Ching-Chou Kuik

She is of course available at Sweet Pea Stamps store & also available here in the UK, although out of stock in the UK at the mo. I followed the sketch over on Sketch & Stash but rotated it & then after I had done it I realised I had already done a card & entered there.......DOH!!!!


I have used Basic Grey 'Curio' paper which is just gorgeous & available at Crafty Emma's who has a sale on starting today. The bottom of the paper was punched out using one of my MS punch around the page sets but I only wanted the bottom & top 2 corners done.

The flower I made myself with some Crochet ribbon I have used also on this card. The button is recycled from my gran's cardigan which I think is beautiful. The tag is also from some linen ribbon I have & I cut a piece off to sew onto my flower......I'm really pleased with this TBH & will be making more.

She has been coloured with Copics but cant remember the colours...sorry peeps :0(
She has been cut out using my Deckle Nestie & then matted onto brown shiny metal which was also cut out using a nestie. I forgot I had these sheets of metal I got them in december I think....they are lush. I then added a few feathers behind her & Bob's your auntie all finished. Oh I also added Frosted Lace stickles to the roses for that bit of sparkle lol.
Well thats it from me but pplease do pop over here as my lovely teamies have really punched out their creations this week....sorry for the pun but they are really stunning.
Hope to see you entering this fornight & look forward to seeing all of your sweet pea creations.
Thank you all for stopping by I'm coming round to see you all now.
See ya soonies my lovely friends mmwah
Challenges I'm Entering.....
