Bubbbly Scrumptious October Challenge

The challenge this month over at Bubbly Scrumptious is Angels, anything as long as it's angel themed. I've made a card, to continue with my crafting frenzy of cards. i love this stamp but don't use it. What's that all about? It was a great excuse to break out the copics again, who needs an excuse? It's lovely and glittery and I think for once you can see where I added the glitter, the wings are the highlight. I coloured the wings on the stamped image in a bright yellow, the stamped the wings twice onto vellum and cut them out. I them coloured the back of one set with the brigit yellow copic and left the other one clean. Then I layered the coloured vellum wings onto the stamped image, only sticking the centre of the wings down, and topped them with the clear wings. I then folded the wings back for some dimension. It's given a really soft effect that I will use again.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Stuck?

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
