Coffee and Cream

I started this card by stamping the coffee background onto cream card then punched the edge with a stampin' up punch. The I stamped various coffee images onto cream card and vellum. The slide mount was coloured silver with a krylon pen. some brown paper was then embossed with a cuttlebug folder and was used in the background. Some silver metal embellisments were used threaded with brown spotted ribbon. Finally a silver heat embossed spoon was added.

I'm getting used to having not a lot of crafting time now - I'm not happy about it I'm just getting used to it!! Anyway managed to squeeze a little bit of time in today after I'd cooked Sunday dinner! Here are the results!

I made them both the same way - images stamped in black stazon and water coloured in. I then added dazzling diamonds for that party sparkle look.

A couple of cards is all I've managed again today. Too busy playing taxi driver for crafting Frown But luckily I like what I have managed to make just a shame I couldn't settle for longer than 1/2 hour at a time!

More Mouses and a Handbag!

Very busy week this week but I have managed to finish two cards I was asked for today! The first one is another of my mum's batch! Similair to yesterdays but this time with pretty DCWV paper and a prima. Quite cute I think!

The next card was a bit of a blast from the past - I used to make a lot of cards like this one and the person who asked for it said she really liked these ones so I made this one like a handbag for her. I punched all the flowers and added little jewels to the centres. The charm tags were made with my quickutz and the 13today was done with rub ons. I really enjoyed visiting an old style of card it was fun!

How old???

I started by cutting the large 16 out of mickey mouse paper with my cricut then I matted it on holographic card. Then stuck the numbers onto some bright yellow firework paper. Mickey mouse eyelets were used down the edges. I wrote the name with stickers and finished it all of with some black gems.

Another card for my mum's batch - this time I'm not sure if she will like it so lets see what she says Mouth At Side

I stamped the house mouses in black stazon then watercoloured it in. I added accent beads to look like sugary sprinkles. I added the name with beads (this is the bit I'm not sure about!)

Dragonfly Bookmark

All I've managed to make all weekend is this bookmark!!

Open Mouth

I made the bookmark shape out of mountboard then covered it in brown card. I then stamped and embossed some leaves in black. Then more leaves were added with brown and black stazon. The dragonfly was stamped with black stazon onto acetate and black stickles were used around the edges of the wings. I then went around the edges with gold krylon pen and added some bindi flowers and a bindi for the dragonflies body. Some black and white fibres were added and hey presto I ended up with a bookmark Shocked

Twinchie to Bookmark

My inchie has extended Open Mouth and doubled!! I turned it into a bookmark. Not really much to say that I didn't say before. I've added glossy accents and stickles. As you might be able to tell I was too impatient to wait for the glossy accents to dry!!

Happy Birthday

I started this card by embossing the agapanthusin silver then I embossed the words. I edged both pieces of card with silver krylon. The insides of the flowers were coloured in with white gel pen. The card has been finished off with some large eyelets, gems and a small amount of ribbon.


I stamped the leaf image in white stazon then drew around them with white gel pen. I then doodled in the corners. The leaves were then stamped again in bron stazon and then drawn round the same way. I finished it off by writing leaves in white gel pen and adding 3 small gold coloured gems. The leaves were stuck on with silicon glue and all edged with gold krylon pen.

Crowd of Snowmen

These snowmen took me ages!!! Tongue Out I made them once then made a mess of one of their eyes and it just happened to be the last one I was putting glossy accents on that I went a smudged Mad so I had to start all over again! Anyway eventually I did it and I think they now look very pleased with themselves! Another of my mum's batch done!!!
