leanne Ellis

Hello All,

Hope you have all been enjoying the bank holiday...surprise surprise I have been crafting all day....and only managed to make 2 cards (how sad is that!!........I wouldn't mind but they are not even that spectacular!)

As anyone who regularly reads my blog will know I am a huge Leanne Ellis fan, so I was delighted to pick up my stamps in Elgin on Sat.......I just love this one and know she will become a firm favourite.....I am sure she will be inked over and over, and I have so many ideas floating around in my head.....

Unfortunately I really don't like the way this one turned I am not really sure why exactly I am sharing it here.....

I have used a "Kanban" Frame that I had leftover from an old kit, and turned it into a little shaker card...not sure why I took the notion...they don't seem to be the fashion anymore....I did not have a tub of just pink beads so I spent goodness knows how long sifting through a tub of mixed beads.....and now most have them have stuck to the edges of the 3d foam so you can barely see them....LOL!!! The black paper is also from "Kanban" and The pink paper is "Papermania - hint of pink"

This is my entry for:

Charisma Cards - girly with flowers (2nd entry)
Creatalicious challenge - Flowers and wings ( little bird as part of image)
Crafty Cats- Spots (spots on frame)

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls


  1. Stunning colours and you're right about that stamp - she's awesome!

    I, for one, am glad you shared this. Your rejects outshine a lot of my best projects, so shush! :D

    P.S. I wish it was a bank holiday here... I had a relatively crafty weekend, but a day to stay in and craft all day would be heaven!

  2. Oh i really lik this card, the black is so striking
    The image looks FAB, superbly coloured

  5. oh i love this hun love the colurs you have used,really makes the image stand out hugs cheryl xxxx

  6. This is really lovely Juls I'm glad you shared it. She's beautifully coloured, love her dress.

    I was looking forward to a day off today but since Mhairi got the keys to her flat we have spent the last 2 weekends and today decorating. At least the living room is ready for her carpet and furniture now. I hate painting but that is what I've been doing....lucky me! Her time off never seems to coincide with when we can go to the flat so guess who's been doing most of the work. Correct....Mum and Dad. And her brother has been a great help too. Still got her bedroom to do so more fun nest weekend. I hate painting. Mainly cos I'm rubbish at it lol!

  7. You are too hard on yourself. The card is beautiful. I'm glad someone else spends all day making 2 cards!

  8. Haha! Me too! I've been crafting for 3 days solid and made 3 things. I'm so slow! Spend too much time pfaffing about. Anyway, this card is just gorgeous, don't know why you don't like it. The pink against the black is just stunning. OOh love the shaker look, even if it is stuck to the foam. LOL. keeleyxx
