So in a bit more detail here's my first card.
I used one of my new (I've got so many uninked which I bought last year) Penny Black stamps 'delicate florals' and stamped a couple of times onto a card blank with grey, light blue and lilac inks, then added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted before sticking the Hummingbird in place. At this point I liked what I had made so resisted the temptation to add anything else..... I think this is the most CAS card I've ever made.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Penny Black and More challenge 'something new'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'cold and frosty colours'
AAA Cards challenge 'quote - let today be the start of something new'
Penny Black Saturday challenge 'anything goes'
For my second card I used a dotty embossing folder along with a Memory Box 'catalina wreath' which I stuck to a scalloped edge circle die-cut. Then a few flowers, pearls, silver peel-off sentiment and my Hummingbird and the card was finished.
I'm entering the Allsorts challenge 'no patterned paper' with this card
That really gave my crafting a kick-start, so a big thank you to Darnell and her super Design Team.... but now I really must go off and make a start on my granddaughter's birthday card!
