A Few New Challenges

I have been busy enjoying creating some new cards for current challenges. 

I posted one a few days ago and this is the second card I made using 

This stamp is really beautiful and I find myself using it again and again.
It is Repeat Impressions Tulip Bouquet 912 - K

This is what I made

I started off with Linen paper and popped the same paper after cutting with Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl die. Added a small strip of designer paper before cutting the inked
Repeat Impressions Tulip Bouquet stamp with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink
with a Spellbinder oval die and backed with the same dp. 
The sentiment is from Gina K's Springtime Silhouettes. I placed a piece of burgandy satin ribbon behind the image and finished it off with a beautiful double bow and pearl brad.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

and as you can see the Challenge for this one is BOWS.
and who doesn't like to add a beautiful bow to their cards to finish it off?

Thank you once again for stopping by. 
Hope you will be so kind to leave me a comment 
and please come back soon.

Black & White Card Challenge.

I have been having fun making some black & white cards 
for the current challenge at

 I know I only get one card selected but still will upload 2 that I enjoyed making because I couldn't pick which one I liked the best.

Here is the first one

I have used basic white and black card stock. The black background I scored and folded the top and bottom overwhich is a bit hard to see here. The white paper was spritzed for a little bit of bling. The sentiment is cut out from Just Rite Vintage Label & Banner Die and popped on top of 
Spellbinders Fancy Labels 2. 
A piece of fine lace was added to the back of the die.
Made a flower from B&W designer paper from bitty blossoms and placed a small rhinestone in the centre. Added a few sprigs to the back from MS die. Finished off with 2 rows of rhinestones and one on the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you checking out my Little Bits of Craft.

A favourite little stamp from RI

The Designer's Choice Challenge over at The House that Stamps Built 
this week is to create a card with your favourite Repeat Impressions Stamp. 
I only have a few and the following card is from one of them
This is how I assembled this card.

I started with white card stock and topped it with a popped and scored piece of paper. I made this a colourful card using the stamp - Iris Window 919 - I using Memento Ink in Olive Grove and framed in orange to highlight the stamp. Added a small strip of DP a small strip of ribbon and a double cut Sizzix butterfly in plain green for the bottom and the top the same DP. 2 Mango coloured Kaisercraft pearls were added to the flower. A small border strip at the bottom is from a MS punch.

As I recently used MY MOST FAVOURITE RI stamp for another challenge there, I still had to make another card with this BEAUTIFUL STAMP.

Come back soon and check it out. I am super happy how that one turned out. I may keep it for a special family member.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to come back to see my latest favourite card. Ina.

Card Challenge at The House that Stamps Built.

One of the current challenges (Sketch F613) over at one of my favourite sites - 
The House that Stamps Built is the sketch below.


I always have fun playing with their awesome challenges 
and go in the draw for some of their beautiful stamps. 

Talking about that -  the card I have made for this challenge has 2 of their stamps. 
The floral image is stamped with Rich Razzleberry from Stampin' Up 
and the stamp is TULIP BOUQUET.

 I added the beautiful sentiment from the stamp set BEAUTIFUL DAYS 
to enhance the flowerInstead of using 2 different designer paper I loved the different colour effect that this piece gave to the background. I placed a piece of my ribbon at the back to show the contrast. I topped it with the same coloured paper as the stamp followed by the white. Simply finished it off with 2 different coloured pearls - the corner and the centres of the flowers.

Hope you liked what I made.
