MVS *Week 2* Clean & Simple & *Week 3* Tie that Sketch

Please accept my apologies for the late post of last weeks challenge. I am convinced that there is something going on with this new computer and blogger. I tried for about two hours Last Sunday afternoon to upload and then again in the evening,
Anyway here it is finally. I am well and truly flowing with the Christmas cards now so I am probably best avoided if you are fed up with them already. Normally I make most of them during the summer holidays so by this time of year I am totally sick of them!

I Used:
Paper- DCWV
Cardstock - Papermania
Flowers and Leaves - Prima
Prismacolor pencils


Moving on to this weeks challenge, I was delighted to find my Magnolia stamp club kit lying on the door mat this week and couldn't resist using it. This sketch is very much suited to using a DL card, only I didn't have any so made my own to my own dimensions and the envelope is to come.
I Used:
Paper - Basic Grey
Cardstock - Papermill Shop
Wire Sentiment - Papermania
Rub on - Paprmania
Distress Inks
Copic markers - There are some available for the prize this week so do check out the blog to get your hands on some

Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge Blog Week 1

Oh my goodness, so here we are, a different challenge blog and a super duper design team (I can't believe that I even made it on this one) I am so going to miss the design teams from Tilda and Sarah Kay though. I never find enough time to blog hop anymore but I really hope to look in on you all as I will miss your work terribly.

This is my piece for this weeks wonderful sketch by Jay Jay. Such a great layout and fabulous for concertina cards (which mine was going to be until I changed it at the last minute).

I used the X-cut shape cutter to make the curve, embossed and inked this before folding. The image was coloured using Prismacolors and cut out using nestabilities. I have added tiny amounts of stickles to the dots on the paper and some of the flowers. The edges of the paper were inked using distress inks.

Paper - Basic Gray
Cardstock - Bazzill
Stamp - Rachelle Anne Miller - Playtime
