So what could be cuter than a little baby girl hanging from a washing line! The stamp is by Hobby Art and I coloured with Prismacolour pencils, zest-it and paper stumps. The papers are from Wild Rose Studio and are available here in the Buttons for Brains shop.

Hello. I haven't blogged since Tuesday but I have a really good excuse! New stock arrived for the BfB shop. Loads of new 6x6 paper pads -
These three plus loads more. And packs of much sought after enamel dots!
So, onto my card, as it's Sunday it features a DigiStamp Boutique image. A hot air balloon and matching sentiment from the Bon Voyage set. I think the Bon Voyage set is my fave DSB set of all time! Although have you seen the brand new cheeky monkeys? I might need to re-consider!
I have three magazine articles on the shelves at the moment. The one above is in Get Stamping 8 and features 6 cards using Paper Smooches dies and stamp sets.Super cute!
The second one is in Papercraft Essentials 106. It's an article all about using sketches when you are short of inspiration. There are 8 cards and all for that most difficult of subjects - men!
And the final article is in Simply Cards and Papercraft 123. This one is using my favourite technique - watercolouring and features the latest oriental stamps.
You may have seen in the news that the latest public art 'The Kelpies' has just opened. We spent a lovely day wandering around, taking loads of pictures that one day will end up in a scrapbook (one day!) There is still a bit of work to be done on the surrounding area but really worth a visit if you are anywhere near.
Righty ho, that's all the news, see you tomorrow for the Papertake Weekly Challenge.
Hello. As you know on a Sunday I share my Digi Stamp Boutique card. Well not today.
Today I have two cards!
Because I couldn't resist having a play with two of the brand new images from the Bon Voyage set. Super cute!
I coloured with Prismacolour pencils and used MFT Blueprints dies. The papers are Carta Bella 'It's a Celebration' and are available here. I have also used some vellum on the second card. I've noticed it's making a bit of a comeback in the cardmaking world.
So, if you want to give using vellum a bit of a go, you get two sheets of premium vellum with the Kelly Purkey 'mon ami' kit available here in the BfB shop.
Hello, I'm Liz McGuire. I have been designing and making cards for over 10 years, serving on numerous design teams and completing assignments for various papercraft magazines.
Along with my cardmaking I like to try my hand at art journaling, memory keeping, smash books etc. And there is also my new obsession - planners and stationery! So there may be the occasional blog post on these topics.
I do have a real job but that's just to earn enough money to buy paper, stamps, pens and, of course, buttons!
