all dressed up stamp

hi guys. well heres another addition to my card making portfolio.
I made this card with a stamp from the all dressed up range which I colured with promarkers. I backed this onto cream and pink papers. I then took a piece of patterned paper from a paperstack I got from the works which I backed onto pink paper and placed this onto a cream card. I then added gems and this little card is now finished.
let me know what you think
thanks very much

mid week craft :)

hi again.
so not had a great deal of time to craft this week with being back in work :( its been so busy and im a lazy bum at home just wanting to eat and finish off series two of orange is the new black but heres another make of mine, comments more than welcome  :)
this card i made using a scolloped card then i cut out a square of this flowered paper i got in a paper pack called wild blossoms collection which i got free with quick cards magazine a while ago, i mounted this onto black paper as i thaught this may make it 'pop' a little then i stamped the cupcake stand onto white paper and coloured with pro markers and them again mounted this onto black and white paper to make it stand out. i finally did the same with the just a note stamp, then i stuck it all down and added gems into each corner.

hope you like this latest creation

thanks for looking

sunday crafting :)

hi guys. ive had a pretty lazy day today as i go back to work tomorrow after a weeks holiday :) but a Sunday for me lately is not complete without a craft session so ive got a couple of creations to show you which i would love your opinions on. thank you so much for looking, Nia xxx
 so this is the first card that i made. last week i bought a stamp from hobbicraft (i love hobbicraft can you tell already :) ) the stamp is riverbank revels and also the backing paper i used is also from a pack by the same range which i found in the works on friday :). I coloured the image using my promarkers and then mounted that onto a piece of red plain paper. next i cut the yellow and green backing papers and i cut them to size and placed them onto red paper like the stamped image. finally i found a happy birthday stamp and added that onto a piece of white paper and added that onto red paper again. finally i mounted it all onto a scolloped card and added some small gems in the corner of the image (self stick this time, much easier i find)
this is the second card i made today i got the image online from, i got a copy of simply cards and papercraft and this image was one of four you could download for free. i coloured this again with promarkers and then cut it out and mounted it onto some turquoise card. next i took some pink pearl card and embossed it with the flower pattern which i got free from a magazine a month or so back. then i again mounted this onto turquoise card and mounted this onto a scalloped card. finally i just added four gems in the corner to finish it off.

thank you for looking again and i hope you like my images. i hope you could leave me a comment about what you think.

first card

so this is the first card I made a few weeks ago,I used a gorjuss decoupage pack that I purchased from hobbicraft. I used a pale purple card to start off to try and bring the decoupage and the background papers in to match the card. I added a  silver card to try and bring out the decoupage image further and then added a few gems in each corner to try and give it a little bling. the gems were very fiddly but I got there in the end without making too much mess ;-)
thanks for looking

Hi everyone. So ill start off by introducing myself, I’m Nia and I am 27, I work in pharmacy and in my spare time I have begun to craft my own cards. This is the purpose of my blog as I would love to show some of my cards off and get some hints and tips on how I can improve. I would love for you to comment on my blog and let me know whether you think my cards are good or bad and what if anything I could do better or if they look good as they are.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to your comments.
