I hope you are enjoying this release this month..

I have a simple card for you today a little scene using the Sweet Spring Friends..

I stamped out the images that I wished to use from the Sweet Spring Friends and also a tree from the Scene Builder..

I then took the Cloud Stencil and added some clouds to a white card base, making sure not to completely cover the entire card..

At the base of this card stock I added the All Lined Up Background stamp, inking it with Natural ink..

I added some twine between both of the stenciling and stamping backgrounds..

Completing my card by adding a sentiment and my images, adding this to a Kraft card base..

Be sure to head over to the blog to see more inspiration..

Have a fantastic day!

Hi there

Hope you are enjoying the Countdown…

Today we have reached day 3 and that means that I get to share the latest Pure Innocence girl called Bundles of Love..

I stamped her out and coloured her with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then took the Stitched Ric Rac and ran the die through my die cutting machine 5 times..

I added these strips to the base of a white card base and then added my little girl..

I took a sentiment stamp from the Sweetest Somebunny and added this alongside my little girl..

Completing the card by adding a scattering of Clear Sequins and adding to a Grout Gray card base..

Thank you all for the warm welcome back and well wishes for us..

Today, I am sharing Day 4 of the Release Countdown for MFT and that means more new goodies..

I used the sweetest new set from Stacey Yaccula called Piggy Pebbles..

Stamping out then colouring with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then masked off an area at the top of the trimmed piece of white card stock, I blended some Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides together to form a smooth look and added Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink over the Ray of Light Stencil..

Once this was all dry, I added my sweet pig and completed this card by adding a stamped sentiment and a strip of Black and White Stripe pattern paper..

Hi there

So long time no see from this little old blog..

Things took a turn for the worse in our household and sadly I had to have some time off from the crafting industry..Darryl, took a fall and sadly has had some spinal injuries, after major surgery and loads of physio we are hoping we are headed back in the right direction..

So hence that also means I am back to crafting in small doses in between my manic and insane life..

Today, is the start of the April Release Countdown for MFT and I start you out with a cutie card using Sweetest Somebunny, Polaroid Shaker Frame, All Lined Up Background and #Captions Die-namics..

I stamped out that sweet little bunny and coloured with Copics, trimming off some of the body..

I then took white card stock and the Polaroid Shaker Frame, die cutting this and at the base of the Polaroid I took the #Captions die and added a die cut feature on the angle to add to the frame, to the back of this I added a piece of Cement Gray card stock and then placed a piece of Homespun Gingham Pattern Paper to the back..

Taking a piece of white card stock, trimming it down, I inked up the Lined up Background stamp with Grout Gray ink and stamped over the white card stock..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment onto some Kraft card stock, adding my polaroid frame with bunny inside and a scattering of enamel dots..

I hope you have some time to swing past the blog to see the rest of the teams amazing creations..

Have a fabulous day!

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..


  • Barbara Rokke

    So cool – I love it! I like the white numbers in the background – very clever!!ReplyCancel

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!
