New Home

Morning... Hope you all had a fabulous weekend... I'm hopefully enjoying the sights of Italy as you read this!

Today I have another CAS LOTV card for you today and its using one of the New Home Trios.  I love digi stamps as you can make the image the size you need for the card.  This one I have made it slightly bigger than what the original rubber trio stamps were.


I coloured in the house image using copic markers and then fussy cut around the circle before mounting it onto  a kraft card stock base.
The sentiment has been added using my tape machine.... I really love this gadget and it reminds me of being a kid again!

That's all from me today.  I hope you all have a lovely Monday.

Sorry I'm Slow

Hey Y'all I have a quick card using a quirky set from Stampin Up.  I had made the distress oxide back ground a while ago whilst messing around and found it in the box of bits.


For the back ground I used Broken China distress oxide by stamping a clear block and then spraying with water and smooching onto the card panel.
I then stamped the Sloth from the Quirky Critters set from Stampin Up and coloured it in with Copics. I re-stamped it onto the background panel so the sentiment was on the background and then fussy cut the one I have coloured it layering it over the top with foam pads.

The card panel is then mounted onto a pistachio pudding card based.  I really do love this background effect. 

That's all from me for today

A Little Note

Hey Y'all.... I'm back with a little card for you today using one of my favourite sets from last summers Clearly Besotted release - Just For You


I stamped and heat embossed the floral image from the set on a piece of neenah solar white and then using picked raspberry and peeled paint distress oxides colouring in the image.

I added a sentiment from the same set and then a doodle around the panel before mounting it on Old Olive card stock from Stampin up.

I'm off on a little holiday to Italy this week for some R&R and sight seeing but I will have a some scheduled posts done for next week.

Hope you have a lovely Saturday

Best Guy Ever

Hey Y'all... I'm off on vacation tomorrow and looking forward to a break away and some sunshine. I have scheduled posts whilst I am away as I have somehow become mega organised and have made enough cards plus found a few from last year I had not shared with you.


For this card I used a Stampin Up Sale-a-bration set called Epic Celebrations.... I love how it is perfect for those musical friends.
I stamped the image and the coloured in the guitar body only. I then fussy cut the image out.  For the panel I added a texture stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set.  The sentiment is from the same set as the guitar.  the panel is then cut out using the pierced rectangles from Avery Elle before being mounted on a card blank made from black card stock.

That's all from me today... busy last day in the office ahead of me!

Thank You

Morning Crafty Peeps... I have another card I made last summer to share with you today. Surprising what you find unedited on your laptop when you are sorting it out. I don't even remember making this card!


I used an MFT background and white heat embossed it on neenah card before adding black distress ink using a blender tool to give a chalk board effect.

I added a star cut from Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler card stock and then added a sentiment from avery elle. The piece is then mounted onto a white card panel and then onto a card blank made from cherry cobbler card stock.

I really need to get better at writing down exactly what I use for my cards....

Hope you have a lovely day.. I'll be back soon with more cards to share

Welcome Baby

Hey Y'all..... I have a little scene card today for you using this cutie from LOTV.  This is Greg - Just A Note and he was perfect for this new baby card..

I saw THIS off the edge card by Jennifer Mcguire a few weeks ago and it inspired me to do the same with this card.


I started off by colouring in the image with Copics and then marked a line across the top to allow the off the edge piece. I then cut around the top of the balloons.

The hills are cut out of scraps of DSP from Stampin up and then I added a little sign post to give it a final touch. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

I am really trying to keep practicing my copic colouring after attending my Copic 4 with Faye a couple of weeks ago... if you have not tried out any of her classes I really recommend you do!

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday
