Taking a break from Blogger... But you can find me on Instagram instead

Hi all,

It's been a difficult decision to make but for the moment until I can get some time to consistently write up posts I will only be sharing my cards on Instagram probably for at least for the rest of the 2018.

I feel like I keep popping in and out of here and its been a difficult decision to just try social media for a few weeks so i can continue to share!

Click on the logos below to take you to Instagram

Hope to see you over there...

Hello Penguin

Morning.... Thought I would share a quick card with you this morning using the Festive Folk set from Lili Of The Valley.

This one is a rubber set but in case you want any digi images you only have until tomorrow to pick them up before they are no longer available!

The image was stamped onto Neenah Solar white card stock and coloured in with Copic markers. I then fussy cut around the cute penguin extending the base out to give some snow.

I splattered Copic Opaque White onto a scrap of dark blue card stock and then trimmed each into a panel using avery elle pierced rectangle. A quick hello sentiment from CBS and then mounted onto a card base made from Neenah 110lb card stock.

I am off to watch OVO Cirque du Soleil this afternoon with my Mum then hopefully I will make it to the Ice hockey tonight.

Hope you all have a great Saturday

One Year Older

Good Morning.. sorry its been a while, I was locked out of google for 3-4 weeks along with some heavy work travel to Germany over August.  In the back ground I have still been crafting so I thought I would share a little card with you!

I picked up some quirky MFT birthday sentiments back in may and it was perfect for a friend who has 'Stopped Counting' birthdays

The flowers from Honeybee Zen flowers are coloured in with distress oxides and the panel cut out using Avery Elle pierced rectangle.

Its then mounted onto a simple black card base. Taks me back to CAS routes...

Hope you have a great Friday... I'll be back soon

Christmas In July

Morning... First Christmas card of the year made from a panel I actually coloured in last year but never managed to do anything with. 
I'm not normally this early but I'm still trying to empty the box of bits and pieces and this was in it so I thought I might as well make it into a card at least.

I created a panel using the poinsettia stamp from the retired Stampin Up Set Joyful Christmas. I stamped it multiple times and then coloured it in with distress oxides .  I added the sentiment from the set and then splatted the page with gold paint.
Its finished off with some gold german glass glitter and then mounted on a kraft card base.

That's all from me today

Season's Greetings

Hey Y'all, hope you have had a great week.  Only a couple more cards to share as inspiration for Mondays Hochanda release.  Again this is from Christmas Friends set and this was my favourite card! It's available HERE

I coloured the reindeer in with copic markers before carefully fussy cutting out the image leaving a small white border.
I cut out a panel with the pierced rectangle die from avery elle and then embossed this with the softy falling EF from Stampin U|p.  Its finished off with a sentiment on black card from a retired Stampin Up set.
I then added the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist card base.

That's all from me for today... hope you all have a lovely Friday!

Merry Christmas

Good Morning.... I have some more inspiration from this weeks Hochanda LOTV sets from Monday.  This has to be one of my favourite examples I made. It uses an image from the Christmas Friends set which you can find HERE

I coloured the image in with copics and added some glossy accents to the nose and baubles before mounting it behind a stitched circle aperture made from Neenah Desert storm card stock.
I stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted stamps onto black card stock and then heat embossed it with WOW ultra white embossing powder.
I added some glitter to the Santa and then placed the sentiment on foam tape over the circle.

I have a few more to share with you over the next couple of days then no more christmas cards for a while!

have a great Thursday

Winter Wishes

Morning.... I have another one of the Hochanda samples to share with you today... this is from the Festive Folk set and you can find it on the website HERE

I just love these cute owls and the Scandinavian styling. I went for purples and blues for my colour theme!

I coloured in the image on neenah card stock with copic markers and added a little glitter pen to the hearts and bobbles on the hats.  I trimmed down the panel so the branch was hanging over the edge before mounting it onto a card based made of Rich Razzleberry card stock from Stampin Up.
I added a sentiment from an old LOTV set onto a strip of the same coloured card with white embossing powder and finished it off with some sequin strip down the edge.

I have a few more example to show you this week so I will see you tomorrow....
