It's all about the Women!

Hello there,

Well, like my title says, it's all about the women over at Cardz 4 Galz this time - we have a brand new challenge starting today and in readiness for 'Mother's Day' here in the UK on March 6th, and 'International Women's Day' on March 8th, our new theme for the next two weeks will be


Now this one got me thinking about the many different ways this could be interpreted, but I decided on a 'Friends' theme - you can never have too many 'women' friends. Here's what I came up with ...

First, I must admit to finding my inspiration for the animal print idea from Pinterest - I lose hours looking through the amazing crafting talent that can be found there.

This gorgeous stamp is called 'Victoria and Juliette's Night Out' from Stamping Bella and I stamped it once onto my card and then just the dress part onto the centre of my background piece of animal print design paper, which comes from an old paper pad called 'Little Black Dress' from Basic Grey. Then I cut out the dress from the centre (which is craftily hidden behind my topper - waste not, want not!) and then paper pieced over the stamped image. The dress on the left is done in the same way using up a tiny scrapling of design paper from my stash. The rest of the image is coloured with my Promarkers.

The stamped sentiment is from a very old set of stamps that live in my 'Sentiment' drawer.

I hope you will all come along and play too.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. I love this stamp and have been eyeing it at quite a few fairs but so far I have resisted, for how long......
    Love the paper piecing and the Yorkshire in me approves of the method!

  2. Hi Jan this is a stunning card I love the stamp you have used. Take care. Hugs Jackie
