Magical

Hi Everyone

Unicrns - who doesn't love them.

I have used my Silhouette to create and print off this topper, I added the sentiment using a lovely new font that I have from @fontbundles it is called Ancient Geometry, and I think it is fab.

    

I have changed the hue to match the papers which are from Stampin Up and layered them all on Black card stock for that POP


I added a ribbon and there you go, very simple but I think very effective.

Thanks as always for looking

Part of my Story

Hi Everyone

Today I have been making this card using up some old DSP, I have also used some buttons which I haven't used for ages, think this might be a new trend.




I have used 3 different layers and patterns each complimenting each the other.


I stamped the sentiment onto white card using Versa fine as I gives that lovely crisp look.

As always thanks for looking

Be Creative

Hi everyone

A lovely challenge card from Stamp with Joy

I really loved this sketch and the I think I am addicted to these colours together.


I found some patterned paper that used both colours, the Gingham paper if from the new Stampin Up range and this blue is stunning.

I die cut the different hearts with the same papers and use a bit of bling to accent the sentiment.

Thanks as always for looking

Forever Friends

Hi Everyone

Tonight I have made a card using some of the lovely papers from Tonic Studios  I love these colours together.  It is done using a sketch from Viva Le Verve from 2015.



The die I used for the the bow is from @alinacraftstore, I really like the look on this however it is so delicate to put together but the result is lovely.  I wrapped some twine around the card to make it look like it is all one piece.


I put a gem in the centre for some extra bling.


The card from Tonic is a lovey grey with some roses embossed into the papers.

As always thanks for looking

Flower Tray

Hi Everyone

Thanks for coming over, today I have made a tray within a tray

I have used a cut out for this project but it is very easy to reconstruct using the score board.  There are two inner trays inside a tray, and all this is cover with a nice belly bank closure.




I used a flower die for the embellishment and also a small tag stamp and die.

The papers are from the range and are absolutely stunning.

Thanks as always for looking

Best Ever Dad

Hi Everyone

Well a Male card tonight, it is not often I make these but thought I would get ahead with a DAD card today

I have used a sketch from Pinterest for this one, and a very old 6x6 paper pad.  I stamped the sentiment onto the patterned paper as it was so light. I used some brown pearls for some added dimension.


I love these colours together.

Thanks as always for looking

My Heart Smiles

Hi Everyone

Hope your day is going well, another male card from me today using all my scraps up again.

This time I used another sketch as I find so much inspiration in them, I changed it up rather a bit but I used all my scraps for the thin strips of patterned paper.




I added the diamond shaped punch tag from Stampin Up! as I thought this was a great fit for the male card and it actually came with the papers.

I also added a few Tonic drops although I am not sure about these, might change them out for brown pearls.


As always 

Thanks for looking

Using more scraps

Hi Everyone
A little 4 x 4 square card tonight, using up more scraps, I will get bored with this soon I am sure but I'm on a mission to use them.  There are so many sketches out there that can be used for this.

I have used some lovely DSP that was out a long time ago and I just can't bear to throw any of it I am sure people can relate to this.  Just using 4 thin strips around the focal image makes such a difference to the out look of the card.  Again this sketch is on Pinterest.


I added a piece of bling inside the dandelion head just for some bells and whistles.

As always thanks for looking

Dancing Shoes

Hi Everyone

Today I have used an old embossing folder with musical notes, after I decided on the stamp set.

Its a stamp I had free with a magazine, the stamp is all about dancing




I heat embossed the image and used an old WOW embossing powder, then I fussy cut it out to put at the bottom of the card.  I coloured the image a little using my Tonic Alcohol markers.



The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  Lastly I put a length of ribbon across the card to hide the join.

As Always thanks for looking

Coffee Time

Hi Everyone

I was watching You Tube and fell on some video's of what to do with scraps, as a hoarder of all pieces of scrap this was an eye opener and a lovely lesson.

I created this card using the scraps I had left from a coffee set.  I first layered the papers onto a piece of photocopy paper.

Then I created a die cut of the coffee mug from a piece of white card and put this on foam tape over the papers.  I cut out the lid and stamped the sentiment. I also added another stamped die cut for the mug.





I used a piece of the papers to create the border.

As always thanks for looking

Thanks a Bunch

Hi everyone

Well today another card using all my scraps.  I have cased this from a pinterest post, what a great idea.

I first cut the designer paper into 3/4" strips then punched out the little flowers using co-ordinating card stock.  The paper at the bottom was a happy accident as my panel was a wee bit too short LOL, so I used a strip and then covered the join with some 1/8th inch black satin ribbon.



I stamped the sentiment and finished off with some bling as the center of the flowers.

Nice and simple

As always thanks for looking.

Birthdays and Cake

Hi everyone

Well tonight I have been using up some more stash, I still seem to have so much more to go LOL
I have used the Cake Soiree stamp set and dies from Stampin' Up! I have had this set for so long and think I have only used it once before, but its so lovely need to keep it out and use it a bit more.

I have also used the lovely new gingham papers, who doesn't like a bit of gingham.......  and Purple again.

I stamped the cake and then coloured it with my Tonic alcohol markers (433 Lavender Sky, 436 Wild Iris and 443 Blueberry Muffin) I added the cake stand in some swirly mirror card and then stamped the sentiment.

I was at a loss about the top of the cake as I was going to put a candle there, but changed my mind and used some of my small paper roses. I think these added a bit of umph to the card, what do you think?  Might have to make a box for this card.

Thanks as always for looking.

Mothers Day #1

Hi Everyone

Well I have made a start on some Mother's Day cards, this is using the lovely new lovely colour Highland Heather from Stampin' Up! I do love purple in any form.  The Mothers Day stamp is from Tonic Studios, which I stamped in Versa Fine.



I have stamped the left hand edge of the panel using a stamp from beauty abounds and then have used a butterfly that I got from B&M store.  They are wall decals but I think the smaller ones look lovely on a car for some added dimension.



Its a simple card but I do love the clean lines of it. Let me know what you think

As always thanks for looking
