Have you enjoyed seeing some of the new products on Day 5 of the June Release Countdown? Well we have even more for you again today..

Being Day 4 of the Countdown I am sharing the latest from Stacey Yacula called Picnic Pals..

I adore creating scenes with her little stamps and for this card I did just that..

Taking the stamps that I wished to use on the card, I stamped out and coloured with Copics and die cut out..

I took a panel of white card stock and Berrylicious ink and applied an area at the centre of the panel..

I adhered my little images and created my scene then stamped a sentiment at the base..

I completed this card by adding some white dots to the sky line as extra texture..

Right, now time to head to the blog to see the rest of the amazing creations..

Have a wonderful day!

Start of a new month and that means a new release countdown..where does the time go, it is flying by again this year..

I start you out with Day 5 of the countdown and I am using the latest from Birdie Brown called Friends with Fins..

I stamped out the shark for this card and coloured in with Copics, adding some detail using some Polychromos..I die cut out and set aside..

I then die cut a circle using Inside and Out Stitched Circle Stax and adding Distress Oxide Inks, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China, flicking some water over the top once blended and adding some stamped fishes..

Next, I trimmed a panel of After Midnight card stock and taking Sweet Tooth Pigment ink along with the Ray of Light Stencil, I added some light rays to this card, setting aside to dry..

Whilst the panel was drying I took a sentiment and embossed in onto a Grout Gray card stock, trimming down..

I wanted my card to have a layering effect, so I took some pattern paper from the Party Patterns paper pad and added this to a white card base..

I layered the After Midnight panel, along with my circle and sentiment and completed the card by added my shark and a scattering of clear droplets..

Be sure to swing past the blog to see what the rest of the DT have created today..

Have a great day I will be back tomorrow with Day 4..

Hi there

Are you all having a great week? I hope you have all managed to do a little bit of crafting..

If you are struggling to get your mojo going how about entering this weeks Sketch Challenge, we are now sitting at number 439 and there are loads of inspiration over HERE to get you going, plus details on how you can enter to win..

I chose to use the Magical Unicorns this week, stamping out the images and coloured in with Copics, die cutting out and setting aside..

I took a white panel and the Mini Cloud Stencil adding Peach Bellini and Wild Wisteria to create a cloud and magical background..

I trimmed this panel into sections to match the sketch and added them to a white card base..

I adhered my little images and finished the card by die cutting some stars from Coral Crush and Wild Wisteria card stock, adding a scatttering of sequins and a sentiment that I die cut using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips..

Have fun crafting..

Whilst still at the die cutting station, I took card stock, Coral Crush, Grout Gray and Limelight, die cutting balloons from the Balloon Numbers die, making sure to die cut the strings from some Cement Gray..

To add a bit of a back ground to my card I took Cement Gray Ink and my Mini Cloud Stencil and added some clouds to a white card base..

Hello All!

I chose to use an older set but really is one of my all time favourite stamp sets called, Recipe for Happiness, I just adore that sweet little chef..

So I took the images I wished to use, stamped them out and coloured with Copics, die cutting and setting aside..

I then took some white card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine, die cutting a piece from the Blueprints 33, whilst at the die cutting station, I also die cut the same die but this time out of Electric Red card stock..

I added a feature to the white die cut using the English Brick Stencil, adding Cement Gray over the top..

I adhered both panels to a white card base along with my images..

Completing the card by stamping and embossing a sentiment onto another piece of white card stock, cutting banner ends into this..

I hope you have loads of fun playing this week..

Have a great day!



Hello everyone!

Jumping back here at the blog for the latest Birthday Project, we hope you will join us this month for some fun projects, to view more head over HERE..

This month we are sharing cards all to do with Birthday Candles and for me I just adore the die Wish, so I knew I wanted to use this..

I chose to do some blending on the base of a white card base, using Coral Crush, Peach Bellini and Lemon Drop….

Once I had blended, I added some flicks of water and die cut into the panel using the Wish die..

I added foam tape to the back of the die cut panel and added to a white card, then adhered the letters back into the die cut section..

Finishing off by adding my elephant and kite that I embossed with white embossing powder and coloured with Zig Markers and added a sentiment strip that I stamped from Greetings and Salutations, die cutting with the Skinny Strips die..

Have a fabulous crafty day!
