Summer card!


This is one of my new cards I made with a new stamp set. Images coloured with inktense pencils. I am very fortunate to have the 72 pencil set, which was given to me for my birthday. Love these pencils.

Would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Dragons can be cute



Hope you are all keeping cool today, especially our furry babies.  Skipper is just about coping in this heat with two fans going 24 hours. 

These are two new cards I made over the weekend for the hedgehog charity. The hedgehog is a set of dies from Tonic, the dragon is by Tattered lace. 

Hope you like them.

Keep cool!!!

Trying new products



Recently purchased some Imagination crafts Starlights textile paints and finally got around to having a good play. I also bought a few of their stencils, which have been used on this bag. The bag is from The Works in Royston. The paints work so well and they are really easy to apply. Love the sparkle you get from them, just a shame you can't get the full effect from the photos. 
Have a great weekend.

Birthday card for hubby



Can finally share this card with you. Took me ages to make and hubby does like it. The stamps are by Sheena Douglass and the stencils are by Imagination crafts and Club Scrap. The texture paste and glitter paste are from Imagination crafts. Used glimmer mists for the background. The images were coloured with Inktense pencils and glimmer watercolours on top. Also added gilding paste over the textured areas. Had fun making this card.

Clean and tidy craft room


In my tidy craft room today, I made this topper to go on my notebook. It was fun just having a play today with lots of different mediums. The topper started life as a white piece of card. It was inked and various stencils and glues and glitter and paints added to it. The stamps used are by Club Scrap which I have had for years and only just inked them.  Why is it that the more complicated your background the simpler it looks? 


My 17 year old baby girl  (Skipper) doing a bit of yoga this afternoon. Don't think I can do this. lol


Part of my tidy craft room. Even managed to get my desk cleared so I can actually use it again. First time in years I can actually see the floor and the desk!!! lol
 Have a great week.

Champagne digital stamp set by Beccy Muir


This image from Beccy Muir's  'Champagne digital stamp set' was perfect for a gift bag. I printed the image onto an A4 sheet of card and then stamped around the edges. The 'Champagne image' was coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. 
 It was perfect to put my friend's birthday presents in . 

Do have a look at Beccy's Place blog to see what the other DT members have done. Also this and many other digital and polymer stamps can be found in Beccy's Place shop.

Skipper and craft stash!


Hope you are having a great Friday. Loving all the sunshine we are having. Found some great craft items at The Works shop at the Royston Garden Centre. The charms are metal ones and there are a £1. Also got some dies for £5 each. This is only a part of my spree. :) Will be having a play this weekend. 



This is my beautiful Skipper who turned 17 years this month (for anyone who missed it). She is still the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world ! :) 

Enjoy your sunshine.

Candy Shoppe digital set by Beccy Muir




This is such a fun set of images by Beccy Muir, you also get the back and white images in the set. I chose to use the coloured images and make background paper for this card. The main image is also the coloured digital stamp but I have added shadows with markers and pencils. 

Do please visit Beccy's Place blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Have a lovely day.

Final Roll Call



Time for another new digi stamp set from Beccy Muir. This set is called 'Final Roll Call' and is perfect for this time of the year. 

For my first card I printed the sentiment and bear image. The image was coloured with alcohol markers and pencils and cut out. The base card was made using a die cut. The textured layer was made with spray inks, embossing folder and gilding wax. 

The second card was made by layering two of the images from the set with the sentiment and printing it out. The images were coloured with alcohol markers. 
Really simple card but looks effective.

Do have a look at what the other DT members have created with this super set on Beccy's Place blog.

Doris and Daphne part 2

Wooden heart hanger

Shaped card

These are the other projects I made using Beccy Muir's Doris and Daphne clear stamps. As you can tell I really had fun playing with these stamps and I am sure you will. 
As you can see a lot of work went into creating the hanger and the card as well. If there is something you would like to know about the projects please leave a comment. 

Hope you like them.
