Gingerbread Greetings!...

Hello everyone!

Today's card is sweeeeeet! - and involves gingerbread - so what's not to like!!! (;

I have used another of the 
new release stamp sets
I stamped and coloured those toooo cute 
houses with Copics and cut them out.

I blended Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide over a piece of smooth Bristol Vellum Card and splattered it with water and white gesso.
Then I die cut the card with the fabulous 

I die cut a piece of white glitter card with the same die and assembled the die cuts as shown placing the white card inside the 
apertures.

I fixed the whole thing to a white glitter card background and added the 
houses in a row along the 
I stuck them down with
so that the design did n't look too flat.

I stamped a sentiment from the 
onto white card with black ink and die cut it with a 

I fixed the sentiment to the top left hand side of the card design.

Acting Goofy!..

Hello friends,

I'm here today with a goofy girlie birthday card!
I stamped the image onto kraft card and coloured it with Caran D'ache Luminance Pencils.

I trimmed it to the same size as the polaroid die and fixed it to a die cut piece of kraft card.

I die cut another piece of card with one of the rectangle dies and blended Candied Apple Distress Ink over it through the Hearts stencil.  I then scattered some chunky white embossing enamel over hearts and fixed it with a heat gun - from underneath.  (This is important, it stops the card burning and buckling)!

I layered the hearts background onto a slightly large piece of kraft card and added the image.  (The sentiment is from an older Stamping Bella Stamp but you could use any sentiment that took your fancy)!

Finally I stamped a sentiment and die cut it with a Quick Strips Die, sticking it to the bottom right of the design as shown!

Naughty or Mice?... Whimsy Stamps New Release

Hello friends!

Happy Friday and Happy November!

Today is the start of several days fun and inspiration showcasing the brand new November release from wonderful

Oh.My.Word!
The Whimsy Goodies are so gorgeous this month - I have been wanting to share them with you for aaaaages!

I have decided to start with one of my favourites - The very cute
with the brilliant and oh so useful
I stamped the gorgeous 
Mason Jar 
onto Kraft Card and then stamped that tooooo cute 
Christmas Mouse 
inside it.  
I masked the mouse and the outside of the jar and stamped lots (!!! /-:) of teeny tiny buttons so that it looked as if the mouse was standing on them!  I had to mask the buttons as I went along to create the illusion of depth.

I coloured the whole thing with Polychromos pencils and added some 
Star Dust Stickles 
to the background.

Finally I stamped a sentiment from the
Very Mice Christmas Clear Stamps Set 
onto a piece of vellum, die cut it with a 
Quick Strips Die
 and fixed it to the top of the design.

The image is layered onto a piece of festive design paper with a twine bow.

This was a real colouring challenge for me.  I have been trying to improve my colouring and stretch myself - the jar was a real challenge but I am pretty happy with how it came out!
I have so many plans for that 
Mason Jar!
so I'll surely get lots of practice! (:

31 Nights of Halloween - Night 28

Hello everyone!

I hope it's a Happy Monday!!!

I'm here today with a spook-tacular project to play along with wonderful
31 Nights of Halloween!
This is the best event of the year!  There is heaps of fa-boo-lous Halloween Inspiration and prizes to be won!  So - stick around until the end of this post to see how you can enter!

I have used one of my favourite images
and the boo-tiful new paper pack

I thought it would be fun to make a little treat bag!

Here are some quick instructions!

Create a 10cm x 30cm strip of black card and score and fold it horizontally at 13cm and 17 cm.
on both ends - make a mark on each side 8cm up from the fold and a mark halfway across the top at 5cm.
Cut the ends into points, punch a hole and round them slightly.  Cut a piece of design paper to fit to the outside of the box when folded, as shown below.
Create a 13cm x 13cm rectangle of black card and cut it in half diagonally making two triangles.  Score the triangles 1cm in from each edge.  Cut a piece of design paper the same size and then trim it to fit inside the triangles.
Fix the longest scored edge of the triangles to the back of the stripy panel
Then fix them across the front of the panel with a row of glue dots along the bottom edge
So - I'm a muppet because I completely forgot to take a pic of the triangles folded and fixed across the front of the stripy panel but hopefully you can get the idea from pic of the finished treat bag!  Please feel free to contact me if you want me to explain further!

I decorated the bag with strip of black card, a skull die cut from the 
and a sentiment from the
Goth Girl stamp set 
stamped and heat embossed onto a 

I stamped and cut out Goth Girl (with my Scan n Cut) and coloured her with Copics
Skin E04, E21, E00, E000
Hair BV04, N4, N6, N8 100
Clothes V17, V15, V12, R17, RVV, G28, G24, G21

Finally I fixed her to the finished gift bag!

The 'gift' is Candy Cane in a cello bag which is fixed to the back panel of the bag with Glue Dots!

Finally - I have to say that sentiment is just PERFECT and sums me up most days!!! (:

Hello everyone!

I hope this week is being kind to you!

I'm here today as we have a very special 
Whimsy Stamps 
mini release, 
arranged to go along with the first day of the fabulous and exciting 
Whimsy Craft Retreat in Fort Myers!

Over the next few days you will be treated to some absolute gorgeousness which the Whimsy Team have been desperate to share with you for weeks!!

I have used the most beautiful image by our lovely Crissy Armstrong 

gorgeous 
Ellie the Special Reindeer 
is coloured with Caran D'ache Luminance pencils and fussy cut!

The background is a piece of card which 
has been blended with Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar.  The background has also been splattered with water and Perfect Pearls

The J and the O are cut with my scan and cut but you could absolutely get the same effect by using 
Whimsy Stamps Bold ABC Dies

The letters have been blended with Distress Oxides in Hickory Smoke, Aged Mahogany and Worn Lipstick in an ombre style.  They have also been slathered with Perfect Pearls.

The card was assembled as shown and mounted on a piece of design paper.
