Sweet Stampin' - flowers

Happy Saturday :o)

Our challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'flowers'... easy peasy!



I've used the FAB new Sweet Flamingo set from DigiStamp Boutique (sentiment included), coloured with copics.  The papers are Crafter's Companion, flowers cut with an MFT die with Doodlebug enamel dot centres, MFT frame die and ribbon from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says (Monday) - happy birthday
CRAFT - anything goes
Moving Along With The Times - things that fly
As You Like It - favourite embellishment & why (I love enamel dots as they add a bit of interest but they're quite flat, I also use this flower die a lot as it just seems to suit my style so works with loads of cards)

No whingy whining from me this week, as I'm feeling much better and I've driven the new car!  It's easy to drive and I'm not scared of it anymore lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a lovely weekend :o)

A card and a car...

Happy Saturday :o)

Well this week has been a bit on the rubbish side... lots of rain and the worst cold I've had for a very long time!  I've had no energy at all and haven't been for a single walk - the dog hasn't gone without though, Pav's been taking him.  Finally feeling up to a short wander today so we're off out soon.

Here's a card I made for an order, using a free image from Sliekje HERE that luckily fit my customer's brief perfectly.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cards and More - dots, dots, dots
Creative Knockouts - furry friends
Moo-Mania - cats


And here's my new car... and me looking very rough after several days of this rotten cold!!  My face is flaky and spotty at the same time, and it looks like I couldn't even be bothered to brush my hair here lol.  I haven't driven the car yet, partly because I'm terrified, partly because I've felt too ill, and partly because I seem to be slightly too small for it!  I've had to buy a wedge cushion to boost me up a few inches and I'll need to add a mat under the pedals too, as my feet are too small to comfortably reach the pedals!  It's supposed to be a good car for short people apparently...

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a lovely weekend :o)

Sweet Stampin' - sympathy or thinking of you

Happy Saturday :o)

Our challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'sympathy or thinking of you', so I thought I'd use a brand new Hydrangea Set from DigiStamp Boutique, which includes the fab flower image and lots of useful sentiments.



Image & Sentiment - Hydrangea Set - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - copics
(Flower B60, B21, B63, BV25  Leaves G21, G24, YG67, G99  Background E41, E42)
White linen card - Papermill Direct
Papers - Crafter's Companion
Flower centres - Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White
Twill tape - Fantastic Ribbons
Inked Edges - Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap
Pearls from my stash

I've been to test drive my new car today... eeeeeek!  For the last 17ish years I've driven a Corsa... the same Corsa for all those years, gradually getting more and more decrepit, but still plodding along and running fine.  I don't like change!  Recently I was driving along and the exhaust fell off lol, but that got fixed and all was well again.  But my lovely mum decided it was time for a new one, so she's only gone and bought me one!  It's a Nissan Note, not brand new, but a very swish and shiny upgrade from my old faithful falling to bits banger... it'll be coming home in a few days and instead of being excited I'm terrified, I can't imagine driving anything else!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, thanks for popping in :o)

Teacher thank you cards

Happy Saturday :o)

I meant to blog my teacher thank yous earlier in the week but didn't quite get round to it... the last week of school is always so busy!  The school holidays have now officially begun (yay!) and Pav's off for the first week too (yay again!).

So anyway, onto the cards... the ginger ones were for Dex's teachers (Dex always wants ginger cats to match Boris)...



The black ones were for an order... 


The blackboard/ chalkboard bases are an MFT die-namics set - I've smeared a bit of white ink onto black card for a slightly chalky effect, and kept the embellishments simple... sentiments were added using 'longandlean' font.  The fab little cat is from Gerda Steiner HERE, coloured with copics.

We actually went out last night (very rare occurrence) to see The Wedding Singer at the Lyceum theatre... I wore a (new) dress and (new) very very high heels... getting brave lol!  It was lots of fun, we really must make the effort more often.... it's much easier to throw my comfy boots on and go for a walk though!!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend... thanks for popping in :o)

Flippin' Birthday - DigiStamp Boutique DT

It... is.... too.... hot... that is all.

Here's the card I made from the kids for Pav - Dex loves pancakes, and Pav makes them as a Saturday treat most weeks, so this image seemed appropriate!



It's Ralph - Flippin' Birthday from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with copics - the sentiment is included with the image.  I think the papers are Basic Grey, they're old ones anyway... I keep all the smaller scraps of papers together with the pads, and sometimes I like to set myself little challenges to use leftover scraps exactly as they are, without cutting them down.  It gives me new layout ideas when I'm getting bored!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Crafty Cardmakers - lots of layers
Monthly Colour Inspiration Link Up - anything hand coloured goes
Come and Get It - use 2 or more designer papers

Thanks for popping in :o)

Sweet Stampin' - Christmas in July

Happy Saturday :o)

Our theme at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'Christmas in July'... I'm so disorganised when it comes to Christmas, anything that gets me doing some of it in advance is a very good thing!



I have no memory of buying this stamp... I had a look through my LOTV drawer (yes, a whole drawer...) for inspiration, and there it was, the sneaky wee thing!  It's called Penguin Pals and it's coloured with copics.  The papers are Doodlebug, sentiment is Clearly Besotted and the scalloped border is an MFT die.  Glamour dust and Doodlebug enamel dots to finish it off.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - anything Christmas goes
Aud Sentiments - Christmas in July + a sentiment
Winter Wonderland - Christmas penguins

Cute Pup set - DigiStamp Boutique

Hello :o)

It's Pav's birthday today, so I'm just quickly sharing one of the cards I made for him... I did one from the kids too, so I'll blog that soon.



I've used an image and sentiment from the fab Cute Pup Set from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with copics.  The papers are old ones from Prima (called Forever Young), and the twine and button are from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says Monday - distress it
The Male Room - add texture (twine)
Crafty Girlz Challenge - anything goes + optional make it masculine

Right, I'm off out again... apparently even though we already walked for 2hrs this morning, what Pav really wants to do for his birthday is go for another walk!

Thanks for popping in :o)

Pop up box card

Happy Saturday :o)

I spotted a fold that I wanted to try when I was browsing Silhouette files, but I don't have access to my Silhouette at the moment (long story involving the craft room move, bad planning, shelf units and plug sockets...), but I figured it couldn't be too difficult to work the fold out myself, so I did!  This one's for a customer, so the design gave me plenty of room to fit in all their requirements.

Photos from umpteen angles in an attempt to show you the fold...





To give you the basic gist...
1. Start with a standard square card (mine is almost 8" square), score and fold the front in half.
2. Cut a strip of card the same length as your card when fully opened out, and score the same folds in reverse... Stick this piece in place and that forms your box fold.
3. If you want the pop up sections (like the beer and sentiment in the centre of mine), cut strips of acetate (or card if you don't mind them showing) half the width of your card front, plus an inch.  Score and fold half an inch each side to form tabs.  Stick the tabs in place within your centre 'box', then add your pop up pieces. Done!

Items Used
Stamp - Deckchair Dreaming - LOTV (seems to be retired)
Beer digis - Fancy a Tipple Doodles - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - copics
Papers - Catitudes - Crafter's Companion
Sentiments - computer generated using LONGANDLEAN font
Stitched & Pierced dies - Circles, Scalloped Circles, Squares, Scalloped Squares - Craft Stash
Birthday Party Fun with Numbers dies - Crafter's Companion
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Gems from my stash
Glitter pen - Nuvo by Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer - Craft Stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - summer sunshine
Crafty Cardmakers - tic tac toe (summer, 2 patterned papers, die cuts)
Addicted to Stamps - summer/ beaches

Sweet Stampin' - stars & stripes

Happy Saturday :o)

I'm here with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge for this week is 'stars & stripes'.



Morgan asked me for a card for his friend... now it's very easy to be unintentionally embarrassing to those teenage creatures, so I ran the image past him first, and I was also worried whether putting the age on was a no-go, but apparently that's ok too.  The finished article was deemed 'perfect'... high praise indeed coming from any male really, never mind a teenage one lol.

Items Used
Stamp - Oliver Kicking About - LOTV
Colouring - copics
Papers - Magical Adventure + Dots & Stripes - Echo Park
Number dies - Birthday Party Fun With Numbers - Crafter's Companion
Sparkle on numbers - Nuvo by Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer (actually sort of showing up in the photos for once!)
Sentiment - Paper Smooches
Gems from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Allsorts - a question of sport
Simon Says - anything goes
Cardz 4 Guys - stars

We're off for a walk now as it's really lovely out... it's been a very wet week, but the rain has stopped, the sun is shining and it's not too warm (I don't do hot weather!).

Thanks for popping in, hope you're all having a lovely weekend :o)

PS. the photobucket nonsense all over my blog is due to my blog background... I had it designed years ago and the person who did it must have it all stored on photobucket which is now charging for that purpose.  Not really sure what to do about it, so might just end up taking my background off altogether if I can't get it sorted!

Cosmos Flowers in Blue

Hello... another midweek post, I'm on a roll lol.

This one's very similar to a pink card I made recently - mum asked me for another one.  I'd actually planned on making one in purples, so started with Shaded Lilac distress ink, which appears to be totally blue here... never mind eh?!



Items Used
Stamp - Woodware Cosmos Flowers
Colouring - Distress Inks and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer (glitter pens)
Creative Dies Stencils - Leaves
Background, stenciling & colouring - Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac, Shabby Shutters & Scattered Straw
Memento Ink in Paris Dusk (for the sentiment)
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White (dots around image)
Pearls & ribbon from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says (Monday) - stencil it
Ribbon Girls - any image + ribbon
Allsorts - flower power

Also, I've just set up Instagram (at last!)... I've no idea what I'm doing with it really, but if you use it I'm on there as wishcraftcards.  Finding it a bit scary and confusing at the moment, but I don't like new things... hopefully I'll get used to it!

Thanks for popping in :o)

Mirabelle

Happy Saturday :o)

I bought Trimcraft's Mirabelle collection ages ago and then hardly used it (surprise, surprise...), but I thought Pav's mum might like it so used it to make her 'names day' card (a Polish thing).



The decoupage, papers, sentiment and pearl embellishments are all from the Mirabelle collection, the butterfly and flowers are old Prima ones and the ribbon is old stash too.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - patterned paper
Shopping Our Stash - think pink
In The Pink - special occasion
Alphabet Challenge - H for hearts

I've been for a fairly unsuccessful shopping trip with Pav today.  One downside of losing weight is that none of my summer things fit anymore, and I have absolutely nothing dressy to go out in.  The problem is, my idea of what suited me before was anything that covered me up!  Now I'm on the small side of a UK size 14 (still hoping to end up a couple of sizes smaller - I'm only 5ft 2") and I don't have any idea what suits me, let alone what's now 'in'.  After several hours of traipsing round the shops, I came away with a pair of pink pyjamas and some navy linen trousers... not quite what I had in mind lol.

Thanks for popping in :o)

The yearly piggy card!

Hello :o)  I have a midweek post for a change, maybe I'll be back to daily posts one day, you never know!

Here's my 'yearly piggy card' - one of my mum's friends loves pigs, so I make a pig themed card for her each year (suggestions for next year's image gratefully received!).  This one's a wee bit bright, but Petunia's got her sunglasses on so she's fine lol.



Items Used
Stamp - Petunia in Love - Stamping Bella
Colouring - copics
Papers - Sunshine & Happiness - Simple Stories
Stitched frame & flower dies - MFT die-namics
Banner stamps & dies - Whimsy

Sweet Stampin' - children's birthday

Happy Saturday :o)

I really must get into the habit of blogging regularly again - I have cards to blog, but just forget to do it!  It's become a once a week thing, instead of a daily one... must try harder!!

Anyway... our challenge at Sweet Stampin' for this week is 'children's birthday', and I've no idea how I ended up with a girly one as I actually needed a card for a boy, but never mind lol.



I've used all older stash on this one, apart from the image which I just couldn't resist - she's called Helga Hippo and she's from Polkadoodles.  The papers are Forever Friends, sentiment is Paper Smooches and the die is Memory Box... image coloured with copics.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cutie Pie Challenge - all creatures great & small
Crafty Catz - anything goes + optional spots & stripes
Polkadoodles - anything goes

60th Birthday Fancy Fold

Happy Saturday :o)

I found some photos of cards that I must have forgotten to blog... here's one that I made using Crafter's Companion goodies when I was on their DT.



It was made using the Big Score board and was nearly 12" tall, so I had to alter an A4 envelope to fit it!  Products were mostly from the Birthday Party range.  I can't remember what the fold's called, if it has a name... any ideas?

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - make it masculine
The Male Room - off the edge
Crafty Cardmakers - for a special man/boy or Father's Day
Pile It On - fancy folds

I haven't updated on the dreaded diet thing for a while, so for anyone who's interested, I've now lost 31 lbs... slow and steady, I'm in no mad rush lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - for Dads or Special Men

Hello :o)

I'm a bit late with my Sweet Stampin' DT card, as it was our 10th wedding anniversary this weekend and I just didn't manage to squeeze in blogging.  Our theme for this week is 'for Dads or special men', so I made Pav's anniversary card using a fun new stamp I bought recently...


It comes with a few different sentiments... I've just repeated the 'love you' one.  It's also huge, so I adapted a 6" square card to fit it.  Coloured with copics (badly, as one of my pens started to run out halfway through colouring!), the papers are scraps from an old My Minds Eye pad.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers - special man/ boy or Father's Day
Addicted to Stamps - animals
Crazy 4 Challenges - repeat 3 times (stamped 'love you' 3 times)

Pink Cosmos Flowers

Hello again!  I've been a bit quiet lately, don't tend to make much when it's hot... I get very very slow...

I did manage to finish a card at last, so here it is.



I played with a leafy stencil and some distress inks to make the 'paper', and inks again for around the flowers.  The flowers were embossed in white and then painted with distress crayons (scribble them on a craft mat, pick up with a water brush), then covered in a fab new sparkly shimmer pen (wish photos would show the shimmer!).  The flower centres and tiny white dots around the image were made using Nuvo Crystal Drops... I just bought them in white to try them out, and I really like them - they dry a bit like enamel dots, but in whatever size/ shape you need, so now I want more colours!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers - floral profusion

It's our wedding anniversary at the weekend, so hopefully I can make a card for Pav a bit quicker than I took with this one!  Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - things that go round

Happy Saturday :o)
 
Our theme for this week over at Sweet Stampin' is 'things that go round' (so wheels, clocks etc), which I must admit had me stumped for a while.  I rummaged through some images and spotted this one... hula hoops go round, don't they?  Well they do if you can keep them up long enough...

Celebrate...

Hello :o)
 
I thought I'd never get this posted!  Blogger just wouldn't work using Chrome... got fed up watching the whirring thing (technical term lol) while it tried to load, and then gave up and tried through Explorer, seems to be working so far.  I seem to remember that I originally swapped over to Chrome because Explorer wouldn't work for Blogger though!
 

 
Anyway!  I bought some goodies from Craft Stash recently, so here's a card using some of them.  I'm really pleased with the stitched scalloped dies - they're great sizes, this one is the 3rd largest die (on a 6" square card), they'll come in very handy I think.  Every now and then I get an urge to sand down some core'dinations cardstock, and I think it works really well with embossing, especially for men's cards... I never seem to have enough male cards even though I really like making them!
 
I'm entering my card for the following challenges

Sweet Stampin' - cats and /or dogs

Happy Saturday :o)

Today's card is for our challenge over at Sweet Stampin', where our theme is 'cats and/ or dogs'.


Please excuse my awful colouring!  I coloured it a while ago and must have been in a rush, it looks very patchy... oh well, can't be helped now.

Items Used
Stamp - Little Claire (can't see it now, so possibly not available anymore)
Papers - LOTV (retired)
Sentiment stamp - Clearly Besotted
Flower - Wild Orchid Crafts
Flourish die - MFT
Heart Banner die - Memory Box or Poppy Stamps?

We've been out for a meal today with Pav's family... tried to choose diet friendly options, and then got talked into cheesecake lol, so now I'm very full!  I've lost 23lbs so far, so not doing too bad.

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a lovely weekend :o)

I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself today... in pain due to a dog walking accident yesterday.  It could only happen to me lol!  I was walking with a friend, and her dog's quite young and giddy, and getting fairly big (lab cross)... the dogs were running and playing and we were chatting.  The next thing I knew I was flat on my back!  My friend's dog had run into the back of my knees at full speed, and because I wasn't expecting it I went straight down, but my head hit the ground first.  So I appear to have a sort of whiplash injury from walking the dog lol.  It was very funny though, took us ages to be able to carry on walking because we couldn't stop laughing :o)

 Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!

Sweet Stampin' - I wish I could fly...

Hello :o)

Our challenge for this week over at Sweet Stampin' is 'I wish I could fly...', which is open to interpretation I suppose, but basically things that can fly!


I've used an old Elzybells stamp that I've had for many years... I soooo miss Elzybells!

Items Used
Stamp - Elzybells (now closed)
Colouring - copics
Sentiment - WPlus9

I'm slightly dreading this week's weigh in, as I've relaxed things due to the overwhelming urge to eat Easter eggs and Pav's had the week off too which always means more food.  I suppose a week off won't hurt too much, I'll cut back again next week!  We've walked for hours most days though, so maybe I'll be lucky and that'll be enough to counteract all the excess...

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a lovely weekend :o)

We went to see Sheffield Sharks play last night... my first basketball match (game?? lol) and I actually really enjoyed it.  I usually hate watching sport, apart from tennis (loathe and detest football!), but it was lots of fun and probably helped that they won.  It was Morgan's treat as we had a 'star of the half-term' card home from school for him... he seems quite pleased that we all enjoyed it, as it means we'll go again!

Thanks for popping in... hope you all have a fabulous Easter weekend :o)

Sweet Stampin' - mellow yellow

Hello at last!  Ooh I've got really bad at this blogging lark, haven't I?!

Today's card is for this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin', where our challenge is 'mellow yellow'... one of my favourite colours so an easy challenge for me.


I popped up the yellow layer on foam pads with the sentiment behind it, to make a simple card a bit more interesting... but my biggest critic (Dex) said it was boring and I should add 'some beads or buttons or something'... so I did lol.

Items Used
Digi sentiment - NEW Large Brush Script Sentiments - DigiStamp Boutique
Flower - Single Daisies - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - copics
Paper - Simple Stories 'Sunshine & Happiness'
Buttons from my stash

Anyone else doing the dreaded dieting thing at the moment?  I've let the weight creep slowly on over the last few years, and keep saying I'll do something about it and never do... well I've been very determined this year, and have lost 18lbs since mid-Feb... there's a fair bit left to go though!  Lots of long walks and logging everything on My Fitness Pal - it seems to keep me on track when I can see exactly what I've eaten... oh and my Jawbone tracker (like a Fitbit) to keep me moving more.

Anyway... hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far.  Thanks for popping in :o)

Sweet Stampin' - one layer

Ok... so I got out of the habit of blogging again!  Let's have another try...

Here's my card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin', which is to make a 'one layer card'.  I should have posted this on Saturday, but there are still a few days left to play along (if you're quicker than I am...).


I prefer not to make one layer cards really, although I don't find them as scary as I used to.  I did end up cheating slightly with this one though, as it didn't feel quite finished without the twine.

Items Used
Stamps - Clearly Besotted
Inks - Stampin' Up 'soft sky', 'night of navy', 'crumb cake' & 'baked brown sugar'
Stitched wavy line die - L'il Inkers?
Enamel heart & brown dot - Doodlebug
Navy twine from my stash

Off to finish clipping the dog's hair... I started hours ago, but have to take plenty of breaks because he gets fed up.  Must get it finished today though, or he'll be lopsided for his walk tomorrow and all his doggy friends will laugh at him ;o)

Thanks for popping in... hope you have a lovely evening!

Sweet Stampin' - masculine

Happy Saturday :o)

This week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' is 'masculine', which is probably one of the easiest themes for me as I love making male cards... I know I'm a bit strange though!

Colouring - Spectrum Noir Illustrators & Colourblend Pencils
Papers - Echo Park 'Magical Adventure'
Sentiment stamp - Paper Smooches

Thanks for popping in, hope you're having a lovely weekend :o)

Jasper and Flower - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello :o)

I'm here with my DT card for DigiStamp Boutique, using one of my favourite older images Jasper & Flower.

8" scalloped card blank
Image - Jasper & Flower - DigiStamp Boutique
Colouring - Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers & ColourBlend Pencils
Papers - LOTV (now retired)
