So it's been a while since I have blogged any cards and this is my 'come back card'!
The stamp I chose is a cutey called V-0010 Love Bugs which you can purchase from Hooked On Craft. I used Copics and Stickles to colour the adorable little bees and embellished the card with some great new products which have just been listed on Hooked On Craft. They are Paper Roses, Mesh Ribbon and Paper Lace Doylies. Check them out and see the great colours and styles.
The doyley was originally white so to make it match my colour theme I spritzed it with Aqua Glimmer Mist and the white paper Roses I Stickled with a hint of yellow!

This is another card I've made for Hooked On Craft. The cute turtle stamps I used is called A-0020 Sweet Animals and I used lots of bright colours to Copic, which would be great for a kids card. Other techniques I used were embossing, border punching and ribbon. Check out the other cute animal stamps from Hooked On Craft !

The pack is 'ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection sheet 19, plate54' and can be purchased from Sweetpea Stamps. I used Copics to colour her in and also the butterflies to match which I punched out using a Martha Stuart border punch.

This card is for the 'Eleganlty Evil' challenge on the Haunted Design House blog. I used the 'Marie Antoinette' stamps which you can purchase from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. In this stamps she was originally holding an envelope but to make it look more evil for the challenge, I changed it so it looks like she's reaching for her pet bat! I had fun making her look dark and Gothic and re-named her 'Marie Batoinette'!

I designed this card for this weeks Haunted Design House Macabre Monday Challenge for the 'Creepy Cute' theme. I used the stamp called 'Witchypoo' from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. For the background I embossed the spider web and then used a sanding block on the raised areas to sand the paper back to white. Then I used Stickles over the web to make it sparkle. I also used a Martha Stuart border punch for the vertical web.
