Bearly Mine Challenge 'Anything Goes'

HI everyone and sorry am late posting this, internet a bit slow for uploading at the moment :(.
This week's challenge at Bearly Mine Designs is Anything Goes' - now thats a nice versatile one to enter!
For my card I used two of the vintage papers from the vintage set, the blue and the beige.
I stamped on the blue background using butterfly stamps randomly, and then stamped again on the beige coloured paper for the oval topper.
Coloured with polychromos pencils, to which I didn't add spirit as it might make the ink run from the printed papers.

some close up photos to show the layering - sorry they are a bit out of focus, batteries need charging again!

have some more to post but want to take some better pics so will back with more over the next few days!

Just Inklined gardening stamp

hi everyone, hope your day is bright and sunny like it is on my little part of the planet. The rain clouds are coming in slowly but yesterday and this morning have been wonderful, and great to be home to enjoy it!
So its a good time to show this card, because everyone is out getting the garden ready for summer, and I cant wait to see the beans and raspberries growing :)

the stamp is from Just Inklined which you can find here, and the papers are from Bearly Mine designs Vintage pack which you can find here

have also developed a love for nylon stripey ribbon (always liked tartan and gingham so no surprise there!) and teamed this up with pistachio coloured twine and a beige button.

Will be popping back later in the week with some more, have a good rest of the weekend, whatever you're up to!

My first Bearly Mine DT card

Hi everyone, am excited to share my first Bearly Mine card with you, for Challenge #34 Fairies.

The papers I have used are from a new release due out this Friday 11th May and are called Floral Breeze. Its just sooo delicate and timeless, that I love all of this pack and I couldn't wait to get crafting with it.

 here is my finished card - lots of gems, clean white and pastel blue. I also only acquired my first memory box die in the last few days and so couldn't wait to team it up with the papers.

here is a side on view to show the layering with the spellbinders die and the die cut branches

you can get this new paper set from Friday this week - click on the picture to go to the Bearly Mine digi paper site.
