A couple of quick ones

Yay, I managed to make a card for Inspirational Card Sketches this week, haven't managed it for ages! I'm not sure if I'm all that keen on my card, but at least I got one done lol. It's another different one for me, no cute image and no stamping, but I need a few more male cards for my box at hubby's work. Red cardstock from my stash, papers are a Sweet Shop Designs download, star cut with nesties and finished with a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

And this is one I made a few days ago and forgot to put on my blog! I've followed the sketch at Sketch and Stash and I'm also entering the challenge at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp which is 'punches'. I've used mainly old stash - I've collected so many images and papers I'm really trying to use some of them up! I've had the papers for ages, they might be Papermania but I'm really not sure. The image is from Pink Petticoat, coloured with promarkers and with lots of glamour dust - again I've had it for ages and only used it a couple of times. Cardstock is a mix of Coredinations and Papermania, sentiment from Craftwork Cards, Papermania ribbon, button and bow. The MS doily lace punch is new... I was VERY BAD INDEED! I ordered the doily lace trim punch and was sent the ordinary doily border punch by mistake... they sent me the correct punch and I was going to send the other one back, I really was... but it wanted to stay with me, so I rang the shop and paid for it instead LOL! I'm terrible!


  1. Oh hun!! I love them both!! The stars and stripes are perfect for a masculine style b-day!! LOVE the look on the second card with the colors and sparkle!! :) HUGS

  2. Lisa you've been busy, I love the way the DP matches the flowers on the tub and her hair, and the masculine card is absolutely perfect, love the story about the punches, you totally deserve both of them, don't feel bad!!!!

  3. Hi Lisa,

    You ALWAYS make such beautiful cards, even without an image!
    How do you do your bows? I'd love mine to look like that but they always turn out ugly.


  4. Hi Lisa, fab male and female card. i love the colours and layout you`ve used with the male card and loving the image and colour combo used for the female card. Hugs Val xxx

  5. These are both great cards. Sometimes I'm a bit disappointed with my quick cards but yours are really lovely.
