Challenges and Swaps

here are a couple of things made this morning, because I was thinking about the ideas for ages then when i was happy with them I put them down in card and paper!

the first is for an ATC swap with the theme 'what makes you happy' - this is from Stamp addicts Cube stamp called Kew Gardens coloured with twinkling H2O's.... okay so APART from crafting, the countryside and the garden and hedgerows nearby make me happy!

the second is a card swap with the theme rainbows. I used a Penny Black stamp called ''When I'm with You'' which I coloured with twinkling H2O's then cut out and mounted on top oflayer of rainbow coloured pastel card stock which already had two colours of handmade paper cut into mountain and grass shapes (edges inked with distress inks pine needles and faded denim) and then stamped the grass bit of the stamp on another green piece of handmade paper before cutting and tearing edges.


  1. these are gorgeous!!! Love the ATC and the wee bears in the card are sooo cute!!

  2. Beautiful work as always Jess:)
