Happy day to you all, hope you have all enjoyed the card kit and by now have purchased one for yourself to play with..

I am back again today with another card by, but of course it is the middle of the week and that certainly means a new sketch challenge has started for you all to play along, to find out how you can do just that and some inspiration to get you going, head over HERE..

I wanted yet another Christmas card so coloured in one of the Bitty Bears with my Polychromos and die cut out..

I then took a piece of scratch white card stock and using the Starry Circle, I die cut into this panel, adding it directly to a white card base..

I then trimmed another piece of white card stock to be slightly smaller then the card front and using the Star Shaker Window Frame, I die cut into the panel..

Using the outer edge of this die, I die cut some Sour Apple card stock and added foam tape, placing it over the other star..

I took my Scor-Buddy and added some score lines around the out edge of the card just to give it more of a feature and placed foam tape on the back, adding it over the Starry Circle area..

I completed the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment from the Snow Globe Sentiments set and die cutting using the Skinny Strips, adding this along with my Bitty Bear and my card was complete..

Enjoy your day, hope it is a lovely crafty one..

    Good morning Joy. I have just found you and am so delighted with your technique. Every card makes me smile. Who knew simple white with just the right amount of perfect coloring would create such beautiful art. Thanks for sharing your talent with us….ReplyCancel

Hi there

YAY! The day is here, card kit release day! Flowers in Bloom!

I hope you have enjoyed viewing what the DT have created using this yummy kit…to view even more head HERE..

I have one last card for you and today I chose to create using some water colouring and pulling out my Mijello Water Colour set, now I am no Debby Hughes but it has been lovely to create with water colour and I can see why she loves to water colour…

So with more practice ahead, it was time to stamp out the flower image and colour..going for browns, orange and yellow tones, flicking some black over the top..

Once I was happy with the image I took the Circle Stax die and die cut a circle out..

Trimming a piece of Kraft card stock and tearing one side of the panel, adding this to a white card base, adding a piece of Black Licorice card stock to this and the water colour panel..

Finishing off the card by adding a sentiment from the Essential Sentiment set, that I embossed with white embossing powder and die cut using the Skinny Strips..

Enjoy viewing all the creations and have fun shopping..

Hello again

Back with day 2 of the countdown to the card kit, I sure do hope you like what you have seen so far, for more inspiration just head over HERE..

Thank you too you all for passing by my blog and leaving beautiful comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of you that takes that bit of time in your day to post some kindness..

So without further ado, here is my Day 2 card..

I stamped out the flowers onto white card stock and coloured with Copics..

I then took the stamp again and with a trimmed down piece of Vellum, I embossed the image with White Embossing Powder, along with a sentiment at the top of the Vellum..

I added my coloured image to a Steel Grey base and layered the Vellum over the top of the coloured image, this not only toned downs the colour but gives a layered effect..

I completed the card by adding a scattering of sequins..

I will be back tomorrow for one last card share..

Have a fabulous day!

Well hello

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend…

I did a little bit of crafting over the weekend and some of that was to create with the latest card kit from MFT, called Flowers in Bloom…which I just know you are going to love…

We start you out with day 1 of the countdown so be sure to head to the blog to see more from the DT..

I chose to keep my card pretty much monochromatic with the image..

Stamping the flower onto some Coral Crush card stock and embossing with white embossing powder, die cutting around this…

I then took more Coral Crush card stock and running it through the die cutting machine several times to produce the frame using the Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames, adhering each layer together to for dimension..

Adding this to a white card base…

I then took my Prismacolor White Pencil and adding some shading to each of the flowers to highlight..

I added my flower inside the frame and took the stamp Thanks from the stamp set, embossing this onto some Vellum that I then trimmed and added inside the frame at the base..

I hope you will like the next couple of days sharing this kit..

Have a great day!

Hi there

Hope you are all having a great week..

Busy busy around here, but still have a little time to jump into the craft room to play..

I have a card share tonight and it is the latest Birthday Project, so if you would love to join in the fun, just click over HERE at the details on how you can play..

This month we are sharing cards created with a Peek-a-boo theme..

I chose to die cut a white panel using the Square Peek-a-boo Window die..adding foam tape to the back for dimension…

To the card front I added a piece of Tiny Check Pattern paper and then the die cut panel..

I moved onto the image that I stamped from the Tweet Friends stamp set, colouring with my Polychromos..

Once I was happy with the colouring, I die cut and added into the die cut panel on the card front..

I completed this card by adding a sentiment and some musical notes..

Have fun playing along this week and checking out all the amazing creations from the DT..



Hi there

Gosh we are up to yet another Sketch Challenge, this weeks is number 441..

Be sure to head over to the blog to check out how you can play along with the design team this week and have a chance at winning..

I chose to pull out my Polychromo Pencils and stamped out the little bear from the Beary Special Birthday, die cutting once coloured and setting aside..

I then took some pattern paper from the Party Patterns paper pad, trimming a piece down and adding to a white card base..

I then trimmed a smaller piece to be placed on top of this, but this time a piece of Lemon Chiffon, adding some stenciling onto this piece using the Star Celebration stencil and Lemon Drop ink..

I layered this to the pattern paper and then my little bear..

I completed the card by adding a sentiment to a piece of Black Licorice card stock that I then die cut using the Skinny Strips and adding some clear sequins..

Have fun creating and playing along this week..
