Enjoy today

I have a card to share today using one of the gorgeous new stamps from Dreamerland Crafts.

This one is called Thank you for and I think these two are SO sweet :)

To be honest, otters are my favourite animals but hedgehogs run a close second so I knew I just had to have this set :)

On the stamp the hedgehog is actually sitting on top of a tree stump but I decided not to add that part and it was very easy to cut him out.

There is also a lovely sentiment that comes with the set but I decided to go with this one from an older set called Birthday 05.

Copics used :

R 20, 24, 27, 29, 30, 59
W 00, 1, 3, 5
E 000, 00, 13, 21,31, 33, 35, 41, 53 

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Add a tag
Wednesday's Creative Inspiration Challenge - Something New or something old
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything goes

Cute Chemist turns 18

I have another card made with the fabulous Cute Chemists set by MFT to share today.

I made this one for my daughter's 18th Birthday.
She is going to study Chemistry at Uni next year so I thought this little chemist would be perfect on her card.  She looks like her quite a bit too :)

I loved colouring this girl with copics and I personalised it by getting the hair colour right and using my daughter's favourite colour (purple) on the clipboard, shirt and beaker.

I created the background by stamping the beakers with versamark onto grey card and then colouring them lightly with pencils.  I also used a white gel pen on the bubbles to make them stand out a little more.

I decided to use MFT's Love You Die-namics but place the girl so that her face is the "O" in "YOU".
Then I added some little hearts from the MFT Tag Builder 5 die.  These are so cute and I originally had the idea to use 18 (for her 18th birthday) but I just thought it looked a bit much :(  
Looks won out over sentimentality and I just sprinkled on a few :)

My daughter loved her card. YAY!!! :)

Southern Girls challenge : anything goes

Cute Chemists Wedding

I have an unconventional Wedding card to share today.

My nephew, who is a science teacher, was getting married to another science teacher so I just had to make them a card using MFT's Cute Chemists :)

I really loved colouring these two to resemble the bride and groom.
I cut them out and placed them on top of an explosive background I made using alcohol inks.
I also used the Serious Chemistry sentiment from the set but I changed it up a little to suit.
The little hearts are from the MFT Tag Builder die.

Copics used :
W 00, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
E 000, 00, 13, 21, 35, 39

Friendship has no boundaries

I have a sweet card for Dreamerland Crafts to share today.

This stamp is called Friendship Has No Boundaries and is from their newest release.

These two are just so adorable aren't they?!

I decided that they would look beautiful on a Birthday Card and I created an outdoor scene for them to celebrate in.

I used distress inks for the grass and clouds and used MFT's Happy Birthday die and a balloon die from CC Designs.

I used a little Wink of Stella on the tutus too :)

Copics used :
E 000, 00, 13, 21, 41, 43, 43, 44
R 00, 20, 22, 30
W 00, 1

Cute Chemists

I am a guest designer for Words 2 Craft By this month.
It is a wonderful challenge blog where each month they have a quote for inspiration.

This month's quote is The influence of a good teacher can never be erased
and it is so true.

I used a fabulous MFT set called Cute Chemists with a much-loved but retired CC Designs sentiment to make a card for my daughter's Chemistry teacher.

I coloured the teacher with copics and I love how she turned out!
Then I created a background using beaker stamps from the set.  I stamped them onto kraft card with versamark and then coloured some of them in with coloured pencils.  I've never tried a background like this before but I think it looks really effective.
I stamped the sentiment onto black card with versamark and embossed with white to create a blackboard. I added a few touches with white pencil and cut out a little piece of white card for the chalk too.
Then I cut a frame out of some pink wood paper from Doodlebug Designs.
The kraft square and blackboard frame were cut with dies from CC Designs.

Copics used ;

B 93, 95, 97
RV 00, 02, 17, 25, 55, 63
R 20, 22, 30
W 00, 1, 3, 5, 7
E 000, 00, 13, 21, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 53

Bubble Fun

I have a card to share today using a gorgeous stamp from Dreamerland Crafts.
This one is called Bubble Fun and it does look fun and relaxing at the same time doesn't it?!
I must admit I still love blowing bubbles :)

I coloured the friends with Copics and then used these same colours as inspiration for a Bokeh background.

I used Tumbled Glass, Spun sugar, Peacock and Lilac Distress Inks to create a background.
Then I created my own stencil by punching different sized circles onto some scrap card and sponged through this with Dylusions white paint.

I created the Sentiment using the wonderful Happy die from Whimsy Stamps and the "birthday" is from the Dreamerland Crafts Birthday 05 Sentiment set.

Copics used :

B 0000, 02
BG 01, 10, 11, 15

Fawn'd Of You Deer Friend

There is a blog hop at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps today to celebrate all the new goodies from the March Release.

I loved the Fawn'd of You stamp so much I couldn't wait to play with it again :)
This time I went for more of an Autumny vibe and used the deer from the set as well.
The sentiment is actually in a straight line on the stamp, which is what I usually want, but I thought it would work better to cut it up into words for this card.  I just did this by hand and then stuck it on to black card and trimmed around it again.  I then glued it on to the oval in a way that filled the empty space.

This stamp set is so beautiful and there are just so many ways to use it :)
