Sunday Stamper

Here is my attempt at Helens Sunday Stamper Challenge.

I started with a plain peice of paper which i inked with tattered rose distress ink and then stamped love with the same colour for that subtle look! Chipboard letters are coloured again with tattered rose and cherry pink stazon then rubbed over with gold rub ons.I did the same to the grungeboard heart and added 2 gold eyelets. The backing paper is from a DCWV rock star pad.

Twin Birthday

One of my sons has been invited to a party by a set of twins so I was given the job of making the cards! Both twins are very different one is girly and the other not so the cards are similar but different!!!The little books will be part of their gift!

Swan Lake

Today is a day to try to catch up with cards i need to get made for me! So this one is made for a friend.

I started by stamping a ballet stamp on some DCWV Rock star paper with black stazon. The backing paper was the coloured with tattered rose distress ink and gold rub ons.Glossy and crackle accents were added to accents on the stamp and cosmic shimmer was sprayed. A ribbon and brad are the finishing touches. I like this one if i do say so myself!

Play time

Playtime after a few days of making invitations - having to really force myself to try and craft at the moment as ideas are not coming easily. so a couple of atcs it was. Both have been sprayed with a little cosmic shimmer mica pigments just to give them a bit of sparkle.

For me!

I've just finished decorating a book I was given for christmas. All of the pages apart from the front cover have been coloured with dabbers.

The stamping has been done with various stazon pads and i have added little embellishments all over the place!

More Scrappy ATCs

I can't seem to stop making ATCs at the moment so more scraps of paper used up today cause i made 6!!! Not made much of a dent in the scrap paper pile yet though - that might take a few years!!

A horse for Caitlin

I was asked yesterday to make a card for a 4 year old who likes horses. So here it is a simple card but quite pretty i think!

Donald Duck?

I needed to make a card for my mum to give to my son on his birthday at the beginning of march. So out came the cricut again! Donald duck caught my eye - i hope he like it! and most of all i hope my mum likes it!!!

Scrap ATCs

I like making ATCs with all the little bits of paper left over from card making when i have the time! So here are 2 made from scraps today! The love stamp is one of my autumn leaves ones the heart filled in with glossy accents.

The dramatic pink ATC has x cut butterflies with bindi bodies

Arty Ben

Male cards are always the most difficult so i try to keep them fairly simple. This one is made using my cricut for the words and letters which i then made look stitched with a white sakura pen. I found these brilliant stickers a little while ago and they were just what was needed for a card for someone who is arty!

Pretty Betty

Today had to make a couple of cards my mum had ordered ages ago!! This one is for my Aunty - the letters were cut on my trusty cricut and the butterflies are made with a x cut die. The butterflies are finished with a silver bindi for their bodies.

Birthday Wishes

Another birthday in January! A card to match (sort of) the mini book - well they both have house mouses on them! This card was made using a Lisa Bearnson kit but i do try not to make up the cards as she suggests so out came this very cute house mouse he is coloured using water colour pencils.

Mini Notebook

Its my sister in laws birthday later this month and she now lives in Canada so present wise it is difficult! I bought her a lovely scarf but it didn't seem like much so I needed to make something quick. Here is what i came up - with a mini book! The covers are made with blue plasma stamped with a house mouse and a small blue flower charm added in the corner. The book was bound using my bind it all and the wires were decorated with blue and white ribbons. See what you think.

Pink Lady

This is a quick page using the Rubber Stamped stamp again this time stamped on mountboard.The page was coloured with pink dabbers and copper dabber round the edges a little pink ribbon finishes it off.

Birthday Book for Linda

I asked Linda what she wanted for her birthday and all she said was "not chocolate" - how helpful!! Eventually she said a little book so I told her I could do that. Here is the result! I really hope she likes it - maybe she would have prefered chocolate!!!!
