Happy Boxing Day to you all, hope you have had an amazing time with family and friends over this festive season..

We have had some lovely time catching up with family, full from too much food and lots of laughs what could be better..

However, I will say the heat is horrendous at the moment and the following week will be not much better..

I never got a chance to pop in before Christmas and share the 2 cards that I created for family, so I figured even though it is Boxing Day it is still Christmas feeling so why not share this week, starting today..

I coloured up a Mama Elephant set that I have had in my stash for awhile called Merry Mantle, it is just so cute and I really adored how the fireplace came up, more practice with my Polychromo Pencils..

I added this to a red card base, along with some pattern paper from Hearts and Stripes and finished the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment from a Clearly Besotted stamp set that sadly I think may be retired, called Most Wonderful..

Later tonight I will be back with yet another card for you, so stay tuned..

Enjoy the rest of your day!




Gosh having some heat this week with weather, I know I say it every year, but I long for Autumn, I hope you are staying nice and cool or warm where ever you are..

Okay enough about the weather how about a card creation..

So we are up to that time of the month again where we share birthday projects with you all, to get you inspired to make these cards that need through out the year..

I worked with a few products on my card…

The first being the Celebrate Speech Bubble that I die cut out of some Silver Sparkle card stock, adding this to a white card base..

I then moved onto my little images that I wanted, to which I used 2 sets, Adorable Elephants and Somebunny, colouring each of the images with Copics and die cutting out, adding these around the speech bubble..

I completed this card by adding even more sparkle with some Clear Sequins…

I hope you find some inspiration from the DT



Happy Wednesday to you all!

I am back today to share the latest creation for the sketch challenge..

I had fun using different elements on this card..

I started out by stamping and embossing the Whimsical Waves Background stamp onto white card stock, trimming a portion of this off and adding to the card base..

Next, I took some Electric Red card stock, stamped and embossed several different sentiments from the From the Heart set, adding this strip to the base and leaving a section in between to match the sketch..

The other elements to the card were to stamp the images that I took from Recipe for Happiness, coloured these in with Copics and added to the card..

Completing the card by adding enamel dots..

Be sure to head on over HERE for more inspiration and details on how you can enter the challenge this week for a chance to win..

Have a wonderful day!

Hi there

Today is the day to finally get your hands on the Card Kit or Tweet Friends or for that matter both things, how fun, I cannot wait to see what you all create with either of these releases..

I am back with one last card using the Tweet Friends set..

Stamping out my little birdie and colouring with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then did a little bit of masking and masked off a portion at the top of the card, stamped and embossed the Sheet Music Background..

I then applied Lemon Drop ink to the section and removed the masking..

I stamped a sentiment onto a piece of Black Licorice card stock, that I also embossed, adding this just below the inked panel..

I added my little birdie and completed the card by adhering some sequins..

Be sure to head on over to the Blog to see all the amazing creations and inspiration to get you started..

Have a fabulous day!

Hi again

So I am back with Day 2 of the Card Kit and Stacey Yaccula, Tweet Friends..

Once again I have stuck with Tweet Friends again and am sharing a simple card that you could easily mass produce..

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

I then trimmed a piece of white card stock that I added a soft hue of Berrylicious ink to the centre of the panel..

Once I was happy with the blending I added my images and completed the card by adding a white embossed sentiment to a strip of Black Licorice card stock..

Final completion was to add some enamel dots..

Be sure to swing on past the Blog to see everyone’s creations..

    Lovely card Joy. Are they natural shadows created by your popped up coloured elements or did you shade them with your Copics? Amazing colouring.ReplyCancel

  • Rose Mary Smalley

    I love this little stamp set….I just recently got it…and I think it is so cute….thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel


I trust you have had a wonderful weekend…

I have more creations for you to view again this week, I start you off with the latest from Stacey Yaccula, now although the card kit is all about Good Time to Wine, MFT also release the wonderful set of Stacey’s, so I chose to change it up and use her stamps seeing as I have not had a chance to create with them since MFT brought Stacey on as a designer..

With this card, I added some stencil work in the background, by using the Framework Stencil, adding After Midnight, Poppy and Lemon Drop to the card..

Once I was happy with the bold look, I added the little birdie with the crown that I had stamped and coloured with Copics..

I completed the card, by adding some white gel dots and a sentiment that I die cut using Essential Speech Bubbles..

I hope you look forward to the next few days of the card kit and Stacey’s beautiful birds..to view all the inspiration head over HERE..

I will be back tomorrow..
