Beautiful Rose

Hi all,
I was super chuffed to win a gorgeous stamp Set from Steph the other day . 
They are from Clearly Besotted which is Stephs new venture using her sister Jennys stunning artwork. I have to say I am blown away by the quality of these stamps. They stamp beautifully giving a very fine outline ..OOOH I just love um!


I decided to have a go at a technique that I had seen on the CB facebook page by one of the super talented design team Debby Hughs were she had embossed the image in white before colouring. I will deffo be doing it again!

I used prisma color pencils to colour my image
I used my scoring board to make a lattice effect and added a touch of handstitching and a couple of  heart pearls to finish.

I have no idea why but I have had a good cry making this card. It just so reminds me of my beloved Nan who passed away earlier this year. I cannot begin to explain how much I miss her :( She would have loved this card :)

Warm Winter Wishes

Hi all, 
I was gonna say happy Monday to you all ...but actually is there such a thing? :(

My card for today is a cute LOTV xmas . I really must get a move on with the Xmas cards or I'll end up sending shop bought again..I know .... the Shame!


The papers are digi from THIS SET over at The Clipart Fairy
I did slightly alter the plain green by dotting with a prisma pencil and colours are a bit of on the picture due to my pathetic excuse of a camera. I am still trying to talk hubby into having a new one for his chrimbo pressie. I am not having much success as I think he has rumbled the reason lol

I hope you like and thanks for stopping by today

A toast to you

Morning all. Early posting for me today. Thought I might as well get on with stuff as I've been up half the night with my demented cat! She was determined to get in my bedroom around 4 o'clock this morning. At one point she was running from the other end of the landing and launching herself at the door. We have the doors with the two decorative glass panels at the top and she had managed to stick her nails into the wood just below the glass and was hanging on for dear life ....I could just see her little eyes peering through the glass whilst giving out the most pathetic cry you ever did hear..Not good for the door! but she does make me lol Anyways, enough waffle and on to my card for today.

This is Alyssa from The Digistamp Boutique..isn't she fab!


I coloured her with prismas
The papers are digital from sassydesigns
I made the sentiment myself
Xcut punched flowers and a big paper bow (template here)
A few gems and some stitching to finish

The picture isn't the greatest as once again it is rather grey here this morning and altering the brightness has bleahced it out a bit.
I hope you like and thanks for stopping by today

I saw a similar idea on pinterest but unfortunately the link didn't work so I cannot give the details of where it came from. Anyway this is my take on it using some scraps of linen card and a bit of distress ink ...a couple of googly eyes and voila! I plan on making some matching boxes with sweets in for my great nieces and nephews for Halloween.

Thursday

A bit of sewing and crochet ....

cardmaking and a huge cookie all my fave thin gs in one :) lol

Hi all, 
My mojo has been a bit off just lately so I got the crochet hook out and made a few flowers ready to go on some slippers I am making for chrimbo pressies. I got a bit carried away and had a few spare so I thought I would try and make a card with some.

Here is the result


I added a bit of sewing for interest but still thought the kraft was a little plain so I just dotted with a brown marker. Now it looks like a huge cookie lol
Almost everything is recycled
wool scraps for flowers and leaves
old packaging for the kraft
and buttons from my Nans old button box
The font is alisha

Time for a snooze

Hi all..woohoo Friday's here at last and it looks like it's gonna be a nice weekend for a change :)

Today's card is a little CAS number I've made using on of the gorgeous images from Di's digidownloads 
Called Time for a snooze I can see me and hubby doing a  bit of this over the weekend hopefully :)


I did this quilted effect background on a card a few weeks back and liked it so though I would have another go this time using smaller squares. I think it would be great for using up your scraps.
I simply scored the lattice background using my hougie board onto papermillshop ivory linen card then cut squares of BP slightly smaller.
I coloured the image with prisma color pencils and the sentiment is computer generated using alisha font

Pick of the bunch

Hi all, hooray it's Friday :) do you have any plans this weekend? not sure what we will be doing I might go and see the Dark Knight Rises now all the crowds will have gone down. I can't stand going to the Cinema when it's packed all that crinkling of packets and heads in the way and especially for Christian Bale. I can't have anything distracting me or getting in the way of my of perviness :) well and the fact that people tend to stare when I drool lol

Anyway onto my card for today 
My lovely friend Ruth has recently released some stamps with Tonic Studios called pick of the bunch. 
You can read more details on her blog HERE


For my card today I have used the ROSES set
I simply stamped one of the roses twice, coloured with prisma pencils and decoupaged it to give a bit of dimension. Then I added a few of the ivy leaves from the set again coloured with prismacolor pencils, cut out and adhered with foam pads.
The sentiment is computer generated and I added a bit of hand stitching to frame

Some of the sets will be featured on create and craft on Sunday at 5pm 

Back to my first love of CAS which these stamps work so well for.
 I hope you like and thanks for stopping by today
