CRAFTY SENTIMENTS SNEAK PEEP New Release - Lemonade Sunday

New Release
Good morning hope your day is filled with sunshine.
 Have you been following the Sneak Peeps from Crafty Sentiments well if you have missed any just checkout the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog where you will find todays along with the last 2 days and links to all the team members posts for further information.
Today i am bring you my card I made with the fab new stamp LEMONADE SUNDAYwhich you will be able to buy along with all the rest tomorrow from our shop here
 sideview showing the shelf
 close up of the fab stamp

I am not too sure what you would call the card i sort of made it like a step card but wanted the image to stand proud but still fit the envelope. I call it a shelf card if you have seen something like this and it has a .name please share I am sure someone else will have made one like it before. The front folds flat and the top of the image lies in line with the top of the card when folded. I tend to stick the bottom down first and line the top up before sticking the front top.
The stamp has been coloured with my Promarkers and I wanted to use yellow to tie in with the Lemonade. The clouds have been done with distressed ink. The papers are first edition I so love these pads as most of the papers have gltter on them and are such good quality. The sentiment stamp is one i picked up from a craft fayre some time ago with no name. Some lovely wide yellow organza ribbon to finish off. The banner is a signature die from joanna sheen and i have cut 3 of them a base on and 2 in DP to lay onto the top. These papers are from the first CD which you can purchase at the shop.
Well I am sure you will agree that she is a cutie and checkout the rest over at the inspirational blog. I think this is one of my fave new releases and i think I want them all.
Dont forget you can buy the tomorrow
Thanks for popping by and see you tomorrow for another creation. leave me a comment so i know you have called. Have a great day.
A random fan - anything goes
papertake weekly - oh so cute
passion for promarkers -use your diecuts (banner cut 3 times, flower to mount the sentiment and a circle xcut for the sentiment
top tip tuesday - here comes summer (tip rub a glue stick along your double sided tape this allows you to move layers if not quite straight before drying)
cutie pie challenge - cute and bling ( papers have lots of glitter on)

It is all about Sports

Good evening so sorry i forgot to post my DT card for CRAFTY CATZ and have been making the most of the lovely Sunshine. My garden has had a haircut and even done some weeding and must say alot of my shrubs have been sorted and looking much better. If the weather holds i might even manage to paint the shed this week.
Well back to why i am posting. Friday was the start of a new challenge at CRAFTY CATZ and this week we are getting fit with SPORTS. So lets see lots of creations featuring sports.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fab digital company KENNY K.

So fancy winning some fab images then just join in and you could be the winner. So onto my card which I have used a fab image from our sponsor
i used my promarkers to colour the image and used my dies to cut the letters to spell out the words Score and Goal in satin mirri which i then coloured with my promarkers which gave a lovely satin effect to them. The backing paper is from Dovecraft pad which had these fab squares and rectangles all with faux stitching.
Well thats it hope you like and come and play along with us this week.
