Morning everyone, I hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday, I am glad it is Tuesday as I only have 3 days left of work before I get the weekend off, and you know what that means, yes more playing in the craft room.

I made a card late last night, just playing really and I ended up with this.

I started with white for my card base, then ran it through my cuttlebug machine with the Quickutz Embossing Folder, Polka Dots, small, I set that aside and reached for some scrap white card stock, I then stamped one of the Hero Arts, Big and Small Flowers stamp twice onto the card stock, along with the leaf design that is in the same stamp set and coloured them with my copics (see photo below for what copics I used). I cut each image out and set aside. I then cut a small strip of pink card stock and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Birthday Sayings stamp set onto this, I added some white dots along the edge of the pink card stock, glued it to my card and added the images that I had set aside with some dimensionals, lastly I added some pearls to finish the card.

I hope you enjoy today’s card. Enjoy your day.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi All, I have decided to enter my very first Blog Challenge and that I would enter Lucy’s polka dot challenge.

I made this card for a previous blog post, a little while ago, which contained a set of 3 cards, using Papertrey Ink, Everyday Button stamp set, I started with purple as the card base, then using a Spellbinders, Labels Eight die, I cut a piece of white card stock then sponged using Papertrey Ink, Aqua Mist ink over the die cut to make a sky affect, once completed I stamped the image onto the die cut and added some buttons. On the card itself I stamped Darkroom Door, Dots background stamp in Versamark ink and clear embossed the dots, once heat set I added my image with some dimensionals to the card and lastly a sentiment from the same stamp set to the bottom of the card.

I hope you like what you see.

Have a great night.

Afternoon all, I trust that everyone is enjoying their weekend, I do hope that some of you have been able to play in your craft room and create. Even though I have been working and have to work today I have managed to go into my craft room to create.

I created a card today that my friend asked me to make for her Dad who has just had back surgery, I don’t know about anyone else, but I find that making male cards are not my strong point. However, with the help of the Hero Arts catalogue for inspiration I managed to create one and I hope that it is okay.

Kraft card stock was used for the base card, I then reached for some scratch white card stock and stamped the Hero Arts, Good Fortune, the lantern 3 times onto the card stock, I coloured the images with my copics (you can view a photo below to see what colours I used) I cut them out, set them aside then stamped the same image onto the card itself, I then placed the coloured lanterns on top of the stamped images with some dimensionals added some dragonflies from the same Hero Arts, Good Fortune stamp set added longer tails onto the dragonflies with my black pen. Lastly, stamped a get well message from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings set and added some black pearls to complete the card.

I hope that you like the card and that you take some extra time to browse through the other cards that I have made on my blog for some inspiration.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Afternoon everyone, well I am home from work after a long day and I can now relax as I don’t have to go to work until tomorrow afternoon, so I am hoping to be able to pop into the craft room later on.

I made this card last night, I had brought some new stamps and I so wanted to try them out, so I made this quick card.

I started with Kraft card stock for the base card, I then stamped the little Japanese Girl from the Hero Arts, Good Fortune stamp set and the Fan that is also in the same set onto the card, I coloured both of the images with my prismacolor pencils, added a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Valentines Sayings. Lastly, stamped some little dragonflies from the Hero Arts, Good Fortune stamp set over the card to add to the card.

Hope you like what you see.

Enjoy your Saturday night, anyone doing anything exciting?

Catch you all later.

JOY

Afternoon everyone! I hope that you are enjoying your day, I know I am, we are currently having some nice well needed rain so I am loving that.

I am also having a great day because last night I took the plunge and submitted cards for a competition that Hero Arts is running at present. I joined the Hero Arts Flickr group and was overwhelmed by the response that I have received already about my cards, there has been the most beautiful comments made and I thank each and everyone of you for that, but I am also excited because through taking the plunge and joining this group I have had several visitors to my blog so this was exciting and now another 2 followers, YAY! LOL.

I also have a special thank you to make to my dear friend Evelyn who gave me the encouragement, support and push to drive myself to do this, and I cannot thank her enough. So thanks Ev you are a true gem.

Okay onto today’s card, my friend asked me to make some cards for her so that she was organised this year to send to people, so today’s card I made an owl card for her, her Aunty just loves owls. As do I………LOL.

I started with a Hero Arts note card, Pink, I then took a purple and pink piece of card stock and stamped Hero Arts, Antique Flower background stamp onto the purple card stock with Versamark ink and on the pink piece of card stock I stamped Hero Arts, Dots and Flowers background stamp in a light pink ink, I wanted to make my own paper image. I punched a border strip on the pink cardstock with my Fiskars, Scalloped Sentiment border punch, attatched the pink and purple card stocks together, then added a strip of cream to cover the joined edges and glued it to the card. I then reached for some scratch white card stock and stamped a little owl from the Kelly Panacci, Twit Twoo stamp set and coloured the owl in with my Prismacolor pencils, I cut the owl out and added dimensionals underneath and placed the owl onto the card, drew some little legs on. I added a Hero Arts sentiment to the top of the card and some dots using my white gel pen to add another dimension to the card, lastly I added some liquid pearls to the dots and flowers punched border stamped card stock.

Love this little owl, and if you know me I love to make owl cards………..LOL.

Enjoy the card, let’s hope that it gives you a little inspiration.

Have a great Friday, think of me tomorrow at work all day!!
