Well here is another challenge card and today i will be entering it in two challenges.
Magnolia-licious Tuesday challenge - Clean And Simple
and Loves Rubberstamps #67 - favourite colour combination
(if you would like a closer look just click on the photo)
I have used a Wee digital stamp called "Ruby" and coloured her in using inktense pencils.
I love this colour combo of bright pinks, greens and teal together and how excited was i when i found it in a kaisercraft paper pad.
The cardstock used is also from kaisercraft, the little flowers are from my stash and the tag i made myself.
I have to say she turned out very pretty.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day

Sadly my husbands Pop died lastnight, due to an infection so it seems.
Although i didn't know him very well he was a wonderful Dad, Poppy and husband. 
This card i made for his wife to make sure she knows she is loved by her family eventhough her love of her life has passed.

Here i am again with another challenge card.
This time i will be entering it in two challenges.
KennyK's Krafty Krew challenge #153 - Case challenge cards and
Alphabet Challenge - N for newest stamp

Here are the links for both pages if you would like to take a look at the other entrants or join in 
(if you would like a closer look just click on the photos)
I have cased Danielle's card who cased Cheryl's card. So technically you could say i cased Cheryl's card.

Anyhow i have used a Kenny K rubber stamp "Christmas Hottie" and coloured her in with inktense pencils.
The cardstock and paper used are all from Kaisercraft and i sponged on copper versa mark ink along the edges.
I used spellbinder shapeabilities (i think from memory) for all the little diecuts.
I used a Embossalicious holly embossing folder to give the larger die cut a bit of christmassy holly look.  
I also used a martha stewart bell punch.
The ribbons are from my stash and i used a little bit of liquid pearls to make the little holly berries and ad a bit of glam to the die cut edges.

Shes one hot little helper huh!
Enjoy, Erica

Hello again, hope we are all well.
It has been a bit cold here today so i decided to keep cozy for a little while in the craft room and make a new challenge card just so i could add it to my new blog!
This one is a christmas card to keep up with some orders but i am also entering it in the
Loves Rubberstamps challenge #66 - Round or Square cards.
Here is the link if you would like to have a look at some of the other entries or take up the challenge yourself

(If you would like a closer look just click on the photo)
The image and sentiment are both rubber stamps from Make it Crafty called "Cheeky Santa".
I have coloured him using Inktense pencils and used Kaisercraft cardstock and paper to make the square card.
The twine used is from Whimsy Farm Twine (another great little Aussie product just like the Kaisercraft and Make It Crafty goodies).

Hope you like this Santa even if he is going to keep the presents!

Have a great day

This was a little while ago but i had to post it on my new blog :)
I made this card for my sister who was going through a rough time. She loved it also.
I must say it's great having a cameo to cut out these fantastic shapes.

I have made a fold out type card using a Magnolia rubber stamp "Christmas tree".
I have coloured the image using intense pencils which took quite a while.
The cardstock used was from Kaisercraft and the patterned paper is from Ruby Rock-It called all the trimmings.
The sentiment stamp is from Crafty Sentiments Designs.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and stick pin are from my stash.
I love how the whole card came together.
