True Friendship

I have a card for a friend to share today.

I was lucky enough to get this adorable stamp from Dreamerland Crafts called True Friendship recently.

These girls are SO sweet and I thought they would make a great "photo" card.

I coloured them with copics and added some distress ink for the sky.
I used rectangle and square dies to create the photo look.
And I found a perfect stamp for the sentiment, from an old CC Designs set.

I think it will be great to use as a Thank you or Just because card.

It is a very clean and simple card because I don't think these girls need (or want) fussiness :)

Thanks for dropping by today :)

Twin Bunnies

I had a request to make a card for someone who was having twin girls.

I've never made a Twin card before and after going through my very large pile of stamps, I settled on this bunny from Forest Friends by  CC Designs.

I have used it before on a baby card and I couldn't resist using it again.
It is so adorably cute!

For the background panel, I used a star stencil and sponged some white ink onto Blushing Bride card.

I stamped the bunny twice, coloured with Copics and cut them out.

I attached these to a piece of Little Bo Peep paper (Crate Paper), and used my favourite border die again (Magnolia's Tilda Lace die).

I white embossed the congrats from another retired CC Designs set.

And I finished the card off by die-cutting some stars from white felt and attaching with some embroidery floss.

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

Love to Scrap Challenge - anything goes
Paper Nest Dolls Challenge - anything goes
Southern Girls Challenge - tic-tac-toe (white, stamp, ink)

These bunnies make the sweetest baby cards!

Graduation Girl

I have another card for Dreamerland Crafts to share today.

This one is from the newest release and is called Graduation Girl.
I think she is so cute and very smart and determined obviously :)

I coloured her with copics and cut her out and placed her on the background panel I made.

I used various Distress Inks with some Tim Holtz stencils to create a bright and happy panel.
Then I used a star stencil with some texture paste for added dimension and interest.

The YAY die-cut is from the MFT Happy Birthday die.  I cut it out of grey cardstock and then "painted" it with Wink of Stella for some glitz.
The enamel dot is also sparkly.

I applied this panel to a white base and stamped "congratulations" which is from an old and retired CC Designs stamp set.

I've never made a Graduation card before but I was happy with how this turned out :)

Pull Me Along Birthday

It was my youngest daughter's Birthday last week and she somehow turned into a teenager?!

I can't believe she's so big now!  Time goes by so fast doesn't it ?!!!
It's a bit sad  :(

Anyway, this is the card I made for her.

I had used this stamp from Dreamerland Crafts on a card for her big sister last month.  But she loved it so much I knew I had to use it on her card too.

I was happy with that because this stamp called Pull Me Along, is super cute and so much fun to colour!

I coloured the stamp with copics and used the coordinating die to cut her and the pig out.
I also used a little Wink of Stella on her wings for some sparkle and popped her up on foam tape for added dimension.

Card - x-press it, grey, black, Home sweet home (Graphic 45)

Otterly Love You

I have a card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

This one uses one of my favourite MFT stamps of all time, Otterly Love You.

I think anyone would find these otters cute, but as otters are my favourite animal, I really, really LOVE them and I just HAD to have this set!!!

This is the first time I've played with the gorgeous otters. and I had lots of fun!

It's an older stamp set but new to me :)

I coloured one of the otters from the set with copics and cut him out.

He looked very cute already but I decided to make him look like he was celebrating a birthday by borrowing some stamps from other sets.

I borrowed the cake from the MFT Happy Hippos stamp set and the balloon from the MFT Birthday Chicks set.

I coloured them with copics and cut them out too.
Then I cut along the fur line of the otters head and along the lines for the otters arm/paw.
This meant that I could tuck the cake and balloon in behind his paw as though he was holding them. Or that he is holding the balloon and the cake is resting on his tummy.
The cake hides where I have cut.

I made the panel with the waves using a few different blue Distress Inks.
I created a stencil for the waves from an old MFT die I have called Surf and Turf.
You could do something similar with a hill die too.
I simply used it on some card to create a template and then used different inks and the mini blending tool to create the waves.
For each wave, I alternated both the colours and the depth of the wave.
Then I flicked on some water droplets.

I stamped the sentiment from the Otter set onto the Kraft card base.
I drew some lines on a white matt with a black fineliner and attached the blue panel to it.
Then I flicked some Dylusions White Linen paint over everything.

I also added a few dots of Ranger white enamel accents and popped the party otter up with some dimensionals.

I am playing along with the challenge this month at Kraft Plus Challenge.

It is a recipe challenge with 4 ingredients :
Something Old - die to create waves
Something New - new stamp set
Something Borrowed - stamps from other sets
Something Blue - waves and balloon

I think this birthday otter made a great male card (and they can be tricky)!
My next challenge will be to make a cuter, more "girly" one.
There are some very cute and sweet sentiments in this set, so actually I don't think it will be much of a challenge at all.  
To be honest, I just want to play around with these otters some more :)

Pull Me Along

I have a card to share today featuring some Dreamerland Crafts cuteness :)

This little girl and pig are absolutely adorable aren't they?!!!

The stamp is called Pull Me Along.

I coloured it with copics and used the co-ordinating Die and Stamp package to cut it out.
The insects, sun and sentiment come with the die and they made making a little background scene for them really simple :)

I made the background by sponging a cloudy sky with Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress Inks. 
I used Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks for the grass and splashed some water on too.

I made a little hole in the wagon so that I could tie some linen thread from it to the piggy and popped them up with dimensionals.

Copics used :

E 000, 00, 11, 13, 21, 31, 33, 35, 37, 41, 42, 43, 44
R 000, 000, 00, 22, 30, 81
W 00, 1, 3, 5
Y 11, 13, 15, 23, 26, 28
BV 0000, 000, 00, 04,  05
YG 11, 13, 95
YR 14

I think this sweet stamp could be used for so many occasions but I made this card for my eldest daughter's birthday and she loved it :)
My youngest daughter was a bit jealous and wanted it for her birthday though! :(

Her birthday is in a few weeks and she loves this image so much that I think I'll have to make a card with it for her too :)

Happy Birthday Pirate

I have something for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today :)

I needed a birthday card for a boy this week so I decided to use one of my most favourite MFT sets, Party Like a Pirate, again.

I truly love this set!!! There are so many great images in it but I decided to just use 2 of them and kept this card pretty clean and simple.

I also used the MFT Big Birthday die again on this card. 
I cut my white panel to be slightly smaller than the white base card and then die cut the Happy Birthday out of it.
I used a black fineliner pen to draw a border around the edge and attached it to a piece of Doodlebug Fun in the Sun paper.
Then I glued on the inside letter bits that were cut out, like the centres of the "P's" for example.

So instead of cutting the letters out and placing them on top of the card, this is more like a stencil.

I distressed around the edge of the piece to roughen it up a bit and also added some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I attached it to the card base, popped the pirate up on some foam tape and added some Black Tie Ranger Enamel Accents.

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

Love to scrap - anything goes
Time Out Challenges - birthday quote

This pirate set is so fabulous and fun!
I don't think it would be possible to make a dud card with it!  :)

Thinking of you floral

I have a post for Anna's Craft Cupboard today using the Vicki Boutin All the Good Things stamp Floral Birds.

I needed a "Thinking of You" card for a friend and I decided to use the flowers and butterfly from this stamp set again, but in a very soft way this time.

There is no colouring on this card at all, which is very unusual for me!
I simply white embossed the flowers onto some Lawn Fawn Watercolour Wishes paper.

There are dies included with the stamp set but I decided to fussy cut instead so that there was no border around them.

The black and white paper and the sentiment are from the Photoplay Vintage Girl collection.

Embossing the flowers and butterfly on these papers was much quicker than colouring them and it gave the card a soft and tranquil feeling too.

I glued the flowers straight onto the background but I bent the butterfly's wings a little and popped it up with foam squares.

It can be very sad when you need to make a card like this but I think the effort and thought behind it is appreciated by the person receiving it.

Birthday Chicks

I have another card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

This one uses the super-cute MFT stamp Birthday Chicks.
They are adorable aren't they?!

I also used a new MFT die called Big Birthday which I really love!

I started off by colouring the chicks with Copics (which was fun) and then I made a background for them using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

I used some repositional tape to create a straight line for the grass and sponged on some Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough with the Tim Holtz mini foam ink blending tool.

I used the tool again to apply Peacock Feathers for the sky and then I splashed on a little water.

I cut the die out using orange cardstock and used a glue pen to adhere it to the background.
The best and easiest way to get your letters straight and even is to use the outside of the diecut as a kind of template.

I cut a rectangle around the "Happy Birthday" from the die-cut and adhered it to the background with the same tape I used when I sponged the distressed grass.  It held the template in place while I glued the back of each letter and adhered it back into the stencil.  When you've glued them all in you just remove the tape and the outer piece (the template)  and the letters are positioned perfectly!  :)

I popped the chicks up on some foam tape and added some stars from the Jillibean Soup Shaker Card and Sequin Pack Watercolour with Shapes .  These are lovely!  They are clear but have a hint of orange.  I attached them with Tim Holtz Glossy Accents.

Floral Birds

I have a card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

I used this beautiful bird from the American Crafts, All the Good Things collection by Vicki Boutin.  The stamp set is called Floral Birds.

It was fun dreaming up colours this bird could be, but I went with my favourite combo of blues, aquas and purples :)

For the sentiment, I used the MFT Love You Die again.  There are just so many ways to use it!
I decided to die cut it from white card and then cut it out to just use the "You".
I left it like a stencil so that you can see the watercolour background through the negative space.
I white embossed a sentiment from the Up in the Air set by MFT, masking off the "you" and glued them together onto the card.

I decided to create a background for the bird by smooshing some Tim Holtz Distress Inks with water onto watercolour paper.  
I used Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.

I also added some jewels from the Jillibean Soup Watercolour with Shapes Shaker Card Sequin Pack.
These are very pretty and were just the perfect colour to work with the rest of the card and give it a little something special.

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

Our Story Bookmark

I have another MFT card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

I wanted to send someone a gift card to a book shop and I thought it would be nice to make a little bookmark to go with it too :)

I obviously wanted to use the MFT set called Our Story to make the bookmark.  I LOVE this set!!!

And I used the MFT Bold Stripes Cover Up die to hold it and the gift card in place on the front of the card, for something a little different :)

I cut the die from grey card and then cut an extra piece to adhere to the bottom.

I then decorated it using papers from Photoplay's  beautiful Vintage Girl collection.

I used glue to adhere the die to the base layer but I only glued around the very outside edge. 
So that I was free to insert the gift card and bookmark through the stripes/slats.

I was happy with how this turned out.  The die held everything in place really well.
I think this would also be a great way to send someone a photo or tickets to a show, for example.

I'm sure the recipient would get a lovely surprise when they took this card out of the envelope :)

Floral Birds

I have a card to share for Anna's Craft Cupboard today.

I used a stamp set from the American Crafts, Vicki Boutin All the Good Things collection called Floral Birds.

It has these beautiful butterflies and pretty flowers, plus some other goodies I'll use another time.
I loved colouring them!

I used Copics to colour and I took my inspiration from this gorgeous paper in the 7 Dots Paint Chip collection. 
I added a few drops of Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops - Morning Dew to the flower petals to try to mimic dew drops.  
I also added some accents to the large butterfly with a white gel pen.

The set also comes with some dies, which I used for the flowers. 
I cut the butterflies out myself, which was easy enough to do.

I used a white card base and cut the 7 Dots paper the same size. Then I lightly distressed the edge of it before adhering.
The paper is thick and card-like and it left a nice white edge after distressing which I liked.

I used the MFT Bold Stripes Cover Up Die over the top of the paper.  This is such a versatile die and looks great with these flowers and butterflies!

I stamped a sentiment from the MFT New Best Friend set onto one of the stripes of the diecut.
The stamp actually says "Pets make life sweeter" but I masked off the first word to change the sentiment :)

The "YOU" is from the MFT Love You die.  
I cut it out of black card and trimmed around the YOU to fit in between the stripes of the cover up die.  Then I cut it out again, this time from white card.  I inlaid the white letters into the negative space and glued it all down.

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

Wild About You Art Journal

I have something other than a card to share for Anna's Craft Cupboard today.

For Christmas, I bought myself and my girls Art Journals and we've had lots of fun creating together.

I must admit I've only done 2 pages so far but I've really enjoyed it.
The first was purely just experimenting with how paints and pens etc looked on the page.
Then I created this one and I was really happy with how it turned out :)

Firstly, I used Dylusions Paint and some Tim Holtz stencils to create a fun background.

I decided to do blocks of 3 different colours and then used an alphabet stencil over the top in the same colour paint.  I love this effect with Dylusions Paints!  The yellow didn't stand out as much as the other colours though and so I went over it with distress ink instead.

I also added some white and black dylusions paint to the background through some circle and arrow stencils.

I am hoping to use favourite quotes, lyrics and sentiments that mean something to me in my art journal.  And I love this sentiment from the MFT Wild About You set and decided to use it with the animals from the set too.

I stamped and coloured the animals with Copics to match the colours of the paint  and cut them out.

I then stamped this sentiment and used the Love You Die-namic from MFT with it as well.

I glued the elements down flat but they look as if they have a lot of depth and dimension because I drew around them with a charcoal pencil.  

I then drew a border around my page added a few details with a white gel pen and finally called it done :)

I love that I can use my stamps and dies and other crafty supplies in my journal.

While it's great making and sending cards to people, this is artwork that I actually get to keep.

And it doesn't have to be perfect, I can experiment and make mistakes and that's okay.

This journal is about me and is for me :)

I  really recommend giving art journalling a try if you haven't already :)

Love the Music from my Guitar

I have some really exciting news to share today!

I'm now on the Design Team at Dreamerland Crafts.  Woohoo !!! :)

I absolutely adore their stamps!  They are just so sweet and so beautifully drawn.
They make me say "awwwww" every time I look at them :)
I have loved all the Dreamerland stamps for so long and I feel so very lucky to be a part of their Team.

So this is my first Dreamerland card.  I couldn't resist this stamp of a boy and his guitar.
It's called Love the Music from my Guitar and I loved colouring it :)

The little dog and the sentiment are from a coordinating die and clear stamp package for this character stamp.  In this set there are 4 cute animal stamps and the dies to cut them and the guitar boy out.  I love the saying and the font it's in, the little animals are adorable and the dies are real time savers too :)

I can't wait to play with some more of the Dreamerland Crafts range :)

New Best Friend Gift

I have something other than a card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

I made a little post-it note holder and decorated it with the cute girl and kitten from the MFT
New Best Friend set.

They are both so gorgeously cute!
I coloured her to match this very beautiful paper from the Photoplay Vintage Girl - tiny prints collection.
I am really loving these papers and I think they work perfectly with these sweet little girls from My Favorite Things :)

Post-it note holders are great little gifts to give people of any age and for any occasion.

They are very quick and easy to make too!

I cut a piece of black card 7.5" x 3.25"
Scored at 9, 10 and 11 cm.
(Yes. I know!  I mix up the way I measure to make it easier :) )
Fold it in half at the 10cm score line and cut two times to the next score line.  This makes the little pen holder bit.
Put glue between the 9 and 10 cm score lines, missing out the pen holder.
Push forward the pen holder part but glue down the rest.
Glue a post-it note to the inside and you're done :)

Actually the hardest thing about making this holder was trying to find post-its that weren't fluoro!
I looked in so many places and had almost given up when I finally found a pretty pink set which was just the right colour.  You can see it poking out a little in the bottom photo.

The pen was a pretty good match too.  I had bought a set of these small pens in lots of different colours a while ago, just so that I would have one at the ready when I needed to make a little post-it note gift for someone special :)

I don't think anyone could resist this little girl and kitten on this beautiful floral background!
Unless perhaps they have a thing against pink I guess :)

Our Story

I have another My Favorite Things card to share for Anna's Craft Cupboard today :)

It's an older set called Our Story.
I've wanted it for a very long time because it's super cute and I love all the different little elements in it to make an inside scene.  As well as the lamp and table I used in this card there is also a ceiling light, book shelf, vase of flowers, pile of books, cup, cat and boy.
It is also full of punny sentiments which are great :)

I also love that it's book themed because I love to give books or bookshop gift cards for birthdays and christmas.

I coloured the stamps with Copics but I also did a little bit of paper piecing again.
This time it was much easier though :)

I used the Vintage Girl - Tiny Prints Collection Pack by Photoplay again to help create a lounge room.  I just cut a strip of the green paper for "carpet" and after glueing it down I cut a thin strip from white card and attached it over the edge for the skirting board.

The lounge chair is also paper pieced.  After colouring the girl, I cut her out, close to the line and then stamped again onto the pink paper and also cut the chair out close to the line.  I then glued the girl onto the chair but attached the chair to the background piece with x-press it foam mounting squares to give it more dimension.

This set is a lot fun to play with and it has just so many possibilities!

New Best Friend Cat

I've had a lot of fun colouring and creating with the fabulous MFT set New Best Friend for Anna's Craft Cupboard :)

This time I've used the adorable girl and cat image.
Aren't they so sweet!!!

I decided to do some paper piecing on this card.

Well to be honest, I only "decided" to do it because I made a mistake.
I had used copics to colour the girl and the cat and I was very happy with it except that I hated how her dress looked so I decided to try to "fix" it :)

By paper piecing the dress, it meant that I really needed to think of this project as a little paper tole really. 
I had to colour and cut out certain areas of the stamp again to position them correctly.
Her arm is on top of the dress and then the sleeve on top of that and the cats head and paws are cut out and are above the other arm, for example.
There are raised areas as in a paper tole, except that I stuck the pieces down flat with glue rather than raising them up. 

Usually when I paper piece, it's with a much simpler image than this one. 
This was a little tricky, but I love how it turned out and all that fussy cutting was worth it I think :)

I also used the beautiful Vintage Girl - Tiny Prints Collection Pack by Photoplay again.
I really love these papers!
Even the sentiment is cut from one of the sheets in the pack.

Sometimes a mistake can actually lead to something better than what you first envisaged.
I hope you have fun crafting this week and embrace your mistakes :)

New Best Friend

I was lucky enough to get a fabulous stamp set from Anna's Craft Cupboard to play with :)
It's by My Favorite Things and is called New Best Friend .

I had lots of fun colouring it and I took my inspiration from the current Colour Challenge at Anna's.
The challenge uses gorgeous shades of blue and green contrasted by grey, black and white.
It was a combination I couldn't resist!
So I coloured the girl and dog using Copics in similar shades and found some papers to match too :)

All the papers I used are from the Vintage Girl Tiny Prints Collection by Photoplay.
This is a fabulous collection!  I can honestly say that I love every single sheet (both back and front)!
And that never happens!

It is 12" paper but the designs are on a smaller scale, so the paper works equally well for card making and scrapping.

I edged all the papers and card with Black Soot Distress Ink and white embossed the fun sentiment from the set onto black card.
The little banner is from the MFT Up In The Air set. I just stamped it onto the same green paper as the background and fussy cut it.
I also stamped a little paw print  from the New Best Friend set in the bottom right corner.

I love this stamp, it is just so sweet!
There is also a cute girl holding a cat in the set that I can't wait to use :)

The colour challenge at Anna's is a great one!
I hope you can play along with us :)

More information about the challenge can be found here.
