New Home Card

Hello my lovelies, hope you are well.

I had a few days off work this week and have been playing with some of my new stash.

Today's card is for friend who is moving home soon.

The birdcage and birds are both Clearly Besotted from the Love Birds stamp and die sets.  I gave the little birds tiny little black gem eyes.  I used SU ink pads Pink Pirouette and Costal Cabana for the birds.   I used a detail brass embossing powder for birdcage.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here set.   The pearls are from eBay.  I really like how this one turned out, hope my friend does too!

Another Hoot

Hello everyone, hope you've all had a great Easter weekend.

I managed to carve out a little crafty time so I had a play and came up with this



I used my SnC to design the card base and to cut out the stamped image of the owl and all the die cuts.  He's been coloured with copics.

Hoot

Hello my lovelies, hope you're all well.

My SIL and I went to Ally Pally on Sunday.  We had a lovely day but didn't spend too much money.  We both had shopping lists, unfortunately nothing I wanted was at the show, so I had to whip out the computer when I got home to order all the bits I wanted.  One thing we did notice at the show were the number of bow making dies out not, they were absolutely everywhere.  But, did you know you can make bows with the envelope punch board from We R Memory Keepers (if you have one).  There are some fabulous tutorials on the Samuel Taylor website.

I've been feeling a little mojo-less recently, so in an effort to find said missing mojo I took myself on a little journey through blogland.  I found masses of inspiration, but in doing so, lost masses of pennies!!  I know you feel my pain.  It's at times like these that I wish hubby and I had a joint bank account LOL!  Along the way I found several wonderful blogs and new (to me) stamps by a very talented lady called Stephanie Wincott at  http://www.clearlybesottedstamps.com.  You've probably already heard of these stamps and dies, but I always seem to be behind the times.  A list of items used is at the bottom of the post, but in case you were wondering about the pearls, they're from ebay.

Anyway, here's my card, I really love it, hope you do too.


Sorry about the quality of the picture, I was having issues with my camera!!

Santa Slider Card

Hello my lovelies, hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

My card today is a slider card featuring a rather frantic Santa, he goes spinning along the card.  I'm not sure who this stamp is by as it was just loose in a box of odd stamps, but I love him.  He's been coloured with copics.  The sentiment stamp is from Stampasaurus, I think I got it from The Stamp Man.


I made the cutting file for this myself on the SnC.  Super easy to do.
