Hi there peeps!

I was meant to post this card last night, but came home from work with a shocking headache and not feeling that crash hot, so here I am this morning feeling much better and posting my latest creation for La-La Land Crafts..

I have to say that the lighting on this card stinks and why I chose the colours I did, well must have been a brain fart of some sort as looking at this card now, I feel it is kinda butt ugly, but posting anyways, hoping someone will find inspiration in it :)

This week over at La-La Land Crafts we are all designing cards that have tags or tickets or even both on cards..


I chose to colour up Telephone Marci and pair her onto a pattern piece of paper that I cut down to look like a tag, adding other layers of pattern papers and die cutting Steampunk Border Die to add an addition to the tag itself..finishing off by adding a stamped sentiment, some twine and some gold enamel dots…

Pretty simple :)

If you get some time to swing by the BLOG and check out what the other amazing artists have whipped up, then I am sure there will be loads of inspiration to get you started this week..

Making this post short and sweet today..

Have a great day!

Hi there

I hope you have all had a fantastic day, it has been rather a quiet day here at the cottage..

Tonight, I wanted to pop in here and share one of the cards that I have created for A Flair for Buttons, I just adore this flair..

This card I wanted to show my true style of simple and very CAS look..


Choosing to add one of the newer items currently in my craft room, which is a new die for me from Studio Calico, Hello, I layered several together to give dimension and a white on white to my card, I also added small embellishments that I had laying around my craft room, of course had to complete the card by adding flair from Sweet Flair set and a scattering of sequins..

Here is a closer look at the card..


If you get the chance to pop on over to the blog, there really is some amazing creations to scroll through from the design team and of course if you are looking for some yummy flair then what better then to shop HERE..

Happy Tuesday!

So the other day I shared a sneak peek of another Clearly Besotted stamp set that I was having fun playing with and of course the With Love stamp set and matching die, is yet another beautiful set created by this company..


So I chose to have more fun with water colouring with distress markers, stamping and embossing with white embossing powder onto Tim Holtz water colour paper, die cutting and playing with various colours of markers to get the look I was after..

I added this flower to a piece of white card stock that was die cut using the Kelly Purkey, Triangles die, backing it to another piece of white card stock and adding this to a trim down panel of Soft Stone card stock..

The only other addition I added to this card was a word die from Clearly Besotted called Thanks, that I die cut several times to create a more dimensional feature, adding a little stamped my friend sentiment and some scattering of white sequins to complete a elegant looking card..

I will own up, that this card seem to take me forever to pull together, being the fact that the day before I managed to pump out the cards and the next taking me all afternoon, well it happens to the best of us I suppose LOL…

Right, well time for me to get ready for another day at work..

I hope that this card inspires you to create today and brings a little sunshine to you world..

Thanks always for stopping by..
