Crafty catch up.

Looking through this blog last night I realised that there is a serious shortage of crafty items so set out this morning to make a few cards with the many stamped and coloured images I already had in the box on my desk. It also gave me a chance to use up some of the many pre-scored card blanks I have collected over the years from various kits and not used.
These first cards use stamped images from the Penny Black range. They have been finished off with various bits and bobs from my stash. This one is a Sarah Kay image stamped and coloured with the addition of a piece of ribbon, flower and brad. This last coloured image is my latest stamp from the Lili of the Valley range, i've added a few die cut flowers and a strip of contrasting paper to the pale green card. This final card uses a template given away with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine some months ago. I inked through the template and after layering the image onto a couple of contrasting colours attached it onto a card on which I had randomly stamped a 'Happy Birthday' greeting. Well things should look a bit 'craftier' now so i'm off back out into the sun!
