The Drummer

Hi All,
Our grandson plays the drums so I thought I would make a card featuring drums.

The background was done with water pencils.

Drums and drummer I had to be creative and used the computer to join digi stamps 
and a Crazy dog stamp by Tim Holtz.

Music Notes - Memory Box - Virtuoso Music
Words - PoppyCrafts - Happy Birthday

The work was worth it as he had a chuckle when he saw the unexpected pop up.

Have a crafty day peoples.

I love Poppies

Hi fellow crafters, today I am posting one of my latest stamps that I believe I will be using a lot.
Stupendous cling stamp - Poppy Fields
I needed a few quick and easy cards to do and this stamp is perfect.
A rubber stamp and only $8.99 Australian.
Next time I'll add some grass and spend more time with it.
So pleased I bought it.

Have a great week crafting.

Blessings to you all with crafty hugs,


A Card full of Flowers

Items used were:
Avery Elle Clear Stamp Set- Petals and Stems
The card was masked for the stamping.
Fussy cut around the top flowers.
Flowers in left hand corner were cut with dies and 3D tape used.
Sentiment was from the same stamp set.
Added shading on flowers and liquid pearls used in the centres.
Not the best to try to photograph.
