Birthday Bingo

Good Morning all, it's the first Sunday of the month so that means new challenges at Stampalot and Penny Black and More

In case you missed it, I have a little weekend candy giveaway details here, just leave a comment to be in with a chance.

At Stampalot we invite you to play Bingo with us and at Penny Black and More we are celebrating "Birthdays".

The card at the top is my Penny Black DT card using Penny Black 4164K A Rose stamped simply in black versafine, embossed with detail clear and coloured with Copics.Matted onto bazzil, a punched border with some added pearls and a sentiment from Darkroom Door.  A really quick and simple card.

On both of my cards I had a play with the new tabs from Scotch which are so effective and as the name suggests they really are re-stickable, how cool is that. They are double sided, easy to use, will stick to any surface, remove cleanly and because they are clear you don't see them when they are used for such things as hanging Christmas decorations. Best of all, when you are finished with them you can simply wash them in soapy water and they are as good as new.

For my Stampalot DT card I selected the Bingo row "Pearls, Flowers and Punch". The base card is some really nice ribbed Kraft cardstock, swirls cut with a Marianne die and accented with pearl drops, a flower cut with TH tattered floral die from the same DP as I used along the bottom of the was scraps from stash and I am note sure of the make, but could be Doodlebug. I stamped two butterflies with versafine sepia and embossed with detail clear.........they are Hero Arts ones but unmounted which typical me means I have no idea of the code as the packing has long since been lost.

Have a good Sunday everyone and thank you so much for dropping by.

  13. Hi Brenda!
    Two fabulous cards!
    Beautiful flower on the second card;-))m

  14. Beautiful creations Brenda. I am so loving that girl in the birthday card, she is very modern and would suit loads of people. This she is going on my wish list lol. I love your gorgeous blue card. The flower is amazing, love the spotty papers. Big hugs for next week.

  15. The one that caught my eye particularly is the first - but then I'm developing an insatiable delight in PB. Your punched border extending only part of the way & then with the added pearls is a gorgeous touch & I love the elegant simplicity of this, especially with the violet. The colours on the second are terrific too - the texture on that ribbed Kraft very interesting.
