Sweet Stampin - Dies & Doodles

Happy Easter! :)

Today is the start of our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin, where this week our theme is 'Dies and Doodles'.  We are sponsored by the brilliant ' My Mums Craft Shop ' who are offering a £10 voucher to the winner, and we also have Joanna Sheen as our monthly sponsor for April too.

Now, I am quite in my comfort zone using dies, but doodling was another matter.  I made it hard for myself too, by using glitter card and glitter paper (tut) , so I had to settle on using my trusty glue pen for the doodling part of this challenge and then added glitter on top.

I used a gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp, First Edition papers, glitter card from stash, Spellbinder Moroccan dies, and Cheery Lynn die D134 - Small leaves #2.  I threaded pearl beads on the flower stems and coloured the image with PM's.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Penny Black and More - Oh So Cute
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
I ♥ Promarkers - Springtime
Crafty Creations - Spring Greens
Simon Says Stamp - Favourite tool - die cutter

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I will be catching up with everyone over the weekend.  Have a smashing day,

Hey Alison

Wonderful card - I am scared of using lots of dies on my cards unlike you who has made it look easy!

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving me some lovely comments :o)

Take care

mixamatoasties said...

Oops, pressed send too early. Unlike on my card with the invisible doodling ;)

Anna said...

This is so cute!! Love all your glittery effects :)

Paula (PEP) said...

Doodle - whatever is one of those?? I cringe every time that word crops up but I have some Doodle stamps.......
Suoer with all your overlapping layers & your glittery doodles are very effective really highlighting those lacey parts of the borders. Hope the egg guzzler hasn't got sick.......
