Birthday Fishes

Happy Sunday .... It's Fathers Day in the UK today but I cannot share that card until later in the week so I thought I would make a card for this weeks CAS(e) This Sketch.

I smooshed some Broken China Distress Oxide onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock and let it dry.
Whilst drying I stamped and coloured the little fishes from the MFT Gill Friends set using my copics.  I then fussy cut these out and added details to some of them with a white gel pen, nuvo drops or wink of stella.
Once the panel was dry, I stamped the Birthday Fishes sentiment out of the set using Versa CLAIR black ink and then arrange the fish over the panel, lifting some with foam tape.

That's all from me for today... Have a lovely Sunday

Party Animal

Morning Y'all, sorry missed a couple of days, I have had cards made but simply didn't have time to get them edited last weekend in full and then the posts written up...

For today's card I'm using one of the MFT stamps from last months release... Safari Party I couldn't resist these little crocs.

I started by drawing a pencil line across a piece of Neenah Solar white card stock before using my MISTI to stamp the croc multiple times across the piece.
I then coloured the images in using Copic Markers before adding the sentiment from the same set.

I added some texture to the crocs using a white gel pen and adding dots and then a doodle line from the sentiment out to the edge of the panel.

It's finished off by mounting onto a black top folding card blank.

I just about made it home from Frankfurt last night as my original flight home was cancelled but it was a very late one so I plan on spending the day R&R and in the craft studio making cards.

Hope you have a lovely Saturday

This is Your ...... Birthday Card

Morning... I have another card using a different stamp from the Birthday Wit Stampin Up set I used last week.  I absolutely love this card and the sentiment and have a couple of friends this would be perfect for... you know who you are!

I used the same method as the last card by using the MISTI and masking off each section with a post it note.  The only difference this time is I used Stampin Up markers instead of ink pads and I think it gives it a little bit of texture to the stamping.
I added some simple doodles around the edge and mounted the panel onto a card blank made from neenah desert storm card stock.

I'll be back soon with another card to share with you

Have a great day

Sending You Birthday Wishes

Morning.  Today I have used the Elephant Birthday set from Mama Makes again for another fun birthday card.

I stamped out the image onto neenah solar white card stock and then added the party hat from the set.  I didn't bother masking anything off as you could not tell once it was coloured in with copics.

The sentiment is from the same set and used the MISTI to make sure I got it straight.  The panel was then trimmed down so I could add some colour down each side.  For this I used some DSP from doodlebug and some glitter card stock from Stampin Up, cut into really thin strips.

The card is finished off with a little sparkle added to the hat.

I'm hopefully back on track with crafting and blogging now I have stopped travelling as much, although I am making cards for the week either over the weekend or a night in the week rather than every day now which is a lot easier to manage.

Have a lovely Thursday

Monster Wishes

Happy Tuesday... hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.  I managed a little crafting over the weekend and this card for CAS(e) This Sketch uses the new stamp I bought on Saturday...

I stamped monster image from the Aall & Create set #13 onto a piece of neenah 80lb card stock and then using a circle die and a pencil drew a light circle where I wanted to partially die cut the area out.
I then fussy cut around the top of the image cutting down a litter further down the side to allow the die to slip in the gap. I used a stitched circle die from Simon Says Stamp to cut out a circle in the card panel lifting the fussy cut section over the die so it didn't cut the area over the image.

I coloured the image in with copic markers and then trimmed down the panel with a craft knife, being careful to avoid the foot which I also fussy cut around.

The panel is mounted onto some very old DSP from Stampin Up and and a simple sentiment from Clearly Besotted is added onto Lemon Line Twist Stampin Up card stock.

I used this CAS(e) This Sketch #275 as inspiration for the card

That's all from me for today... have a great Tuesday

New Baby

Happy Monday Y'all.  I have a LOTV card to share with you all today using Scruffy Edward from the release back in April.  I absolutely loved this little elephant and wanted to make another little card using a second image I had already coloured in.

After printing off the digi image I coloured it in using copics and then fussy cut out the elephant and the balloon.
I created a panel scene using some soft sky and pear pizzazz card stock from Stampin Up  and added some memory box clouds.  I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Stamps and then mounted the images on foam tape.  I ran some string behind the hand of the elephant before securing it down on the card.  I then added the end behind the balloon and added a small bow.

I really love creating scenes with a mix of images and dies... even if they all tend to look the same :-)

I'll be back later in the week.. have a lovely Monday

Written In The Stars

Morning... I have one more card for you made from the Birthday Wit set from Stampin Up. I had stamped this out when I made the others but had done nothing with it.

The sentiment was stamped in black ink and then I coloured it in with copics in bright colours. I trimmed down the panel before adding some wooden star embellishments and a doodling around the edge.
The panel was then mounted onto a card base made from Bermuda Bay card stock from Stampin Up.  I finished it off by adding a little wink of stella onto the wooden stars.

Yesterday I went to the craft show in Bolton and then spent the rest of the day crafting my little heart out with stuff to show you over the next couple of weeks.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday
