Hi again

I am back again with another card and hoping that you will play along and have some fun with this months Birthday Project, to see how to play along and all the Design Team inspiration, click HERE..

I chose to colour in one of the Pure Innocence girls called Cupcake Day..

I then restamped the image again onto some pattern paper from the Sweet Stack paper pad, cutting out the dress only, adding some shading with some grey copics..

Setting her aside, I took some white card stock and masked off an area at the base, adding a thick layer of Ripe Raspberry Ink..

I then die cut some numbers out of white card stock using the Stitched Alphabet Dies, adding these along the top of the inked panel..

Lastly, I added my little girl and stamped a sentiment from the Sassy Pants Birthday..

Enjoy the rest of the day! I will be back again soon with more creations..

Hello there

Seems to have been quite a few days that I have written here on the little old blog..

We have hit a few hurdles in our lives here at the cottage at the moment and no time for crafting..

Although today I finally have a card for you and it is Wednesday which means a new sketch challenge has started..

I hope you will all find some time to play along and to see the details on how you can enter for a chance at winning just click HERE, there will be loads of inspiration from the DT too…

I chose to colour in the images from Rain or Shine, die cutting these out and setting aside..

I then took a strip of white card stock and adding Grout Gray ink over the top of the Mini Cloud Stencil, I applied the entire length of the card stock to create my background..

I added this strip of card stock along with a piece of pattern paper from the Homespun Gingham paper pad to a white card base..

I added my images and completed the card by stamping a sentiment from the Puddle Jumper and a scattering of Clear Sequins..

I hope you find some inspiration today and have fun playing along..

Have a great day!

The day is finally here that you can choose all those products you have had your eye on for the last few days…

Don’t forget if you need any more inspiration to choose even more product for your craft room, head to the blog to see more..

I chose to work with Super Dog and City Block this time..

I took a piece of Black Licorice card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine, die cutting the City Block..

I then trimmed a piece of white card stock and added Chipped Sapphire to the background..

Once it was dry, I flicked some water and added some Sweet Tooth Pigment ink through the In the Spotlight Stencil..

I then stamped out my little Super Dog and die cut him, adding him and my City Block to the inked panel..

I completed the card by stamping a sentiment within the spotlight and added some Clear Sequins as well as some white gel pen dots..

Apologies for the card being a bit grainy looking, I was running out of natural light to take a good photo..

Have fun Shopping..

Hi there

Woohoo! Day 1 of the February Release Countdown, so not long now before you can jump on the website and order all these goodies..

Today, I chose to create a card using the Party Penguins..

I took Black Licorice ink and inked up the body of the penguin, then I die cut out and with the feet and nose I applied Orange Zest ink to the stamp and aligned up the feet as best as I could and stamped those onto the penguin..

Setting these aside, I took a trimmed piece of white card stock and applied Berrylicious to the top part of the card..

Once I was happy with the blending, I stamped confetti using Tickled Pink, Berrylicious and Lemon Drop ink..

Adding my penguins and then trimming a piece of pattern paper from the Party Patterns, adding this below the penguins..

I completed the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment to Black Licorice card stock, adding this to the pattern paper and a scattering of Clear Sequins..

There is load more inspiration from the Team so be sure to swing on by to check that out..

Have a fabulous crafty day!

Are you all getting those list for shopping the latest release ready, so many wonderful products this month..

Today we are at Day 2 and today I am sharing a card created using Birthday Bear and Friends..

I stamped out the images that I wished to use, coloured them up with Copics and die cut out..

I then worked on my background, cutting a piece of white card stock to be a square and adding heavy colours of Berrylicious, Ripe Raspberry, Lemon Drop and Wild Wisteria, I flicked some water over the top and once that was dry, I added Sweet Tooth Pigment ink over the Card Size Confetti Stencil..

I then cut a strip of Black Licorice card stock and embossed a sentiment from the Party Penguins, adding this to the base as well as a piece of pattern paper from the Black and White Stripes..

Lastly, I added my images and my card was complete..

Remember to swing past the blog to see all the creations for today..

Have a fantastic day!

Hello there

Gosh, already we have reached halfway of the countdown, the time certainly is zooming by..

I am sharing one of the latest Pure Innocence Girls this month and you are in for a treat, this month they are release not just 1 but 2 of these little beauties..

I chose to work with Birthday Buddies, stamping out and colouring in with Copics and restamping onto pattern papers for her dress and little cardigan, papers from the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Pastels and Homespun Gingham..

Once everything was adhered, I die cut her and the sweet little puppy side kick and set these aside..

I then took a trimmed piece of white card stock, adding some post-it tape to mask off an area, then I added Dried Marigold Distress Ink, leaving the centre of the panel with a glow effect..

Before I took the masking tape off I added some stenciling with the latest stencil called, Card Sized Confetti, blending in some Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink..

I stamped a sentiment at the base of the inked panel, then took the masking tape off and added my images..

I hope you find loads of inspiration today over at the blog, I will be back with Day 2 tomorrow..

Have a fabulous crafty weekend!
