One of My Peeps.. Plus New Items Added To My Craft Stash Facebook Page

Afternoon... sorry I have been a little bit of a stranger this month, it's been tough with the loss of my grandma and work has been chaos too....

I had a sort out of the craft room over the weekend and managed a little more crafting... and to take photos of some of the cards I had made a couple of weeks before...

How can you not love this image....

Stamps: Stamping Bella One Of My Peeps (Dies to Die For)
Card Stock: Stampin Up Berry Burst

I have also added loads more stuff to my pre-loved stash sale over on Facebook.  You can find the group below on the link.  I have added some more Clearly Besotted items and LOTV stamps.

You can find it here...

Have a great Tuesday

Happy Birthday

Afternoon... sorry I am a little later today.  Life is a little crazy at the moment and I have not had chance to type up any posts the last couple of days!

I think I have become a little obsessed with Distress Oxide inks and this one is another using a stamp block squishing technique and some splattering....

Inks: Distress Oxides: Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint, Mermaid Lagoon
Stamps: CBS Scrumptious Script
Card: Neenah Solar White, Stampin Up Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist
Other: Nuovo Drops Crystal

I have spent the last couple of days preparing the Order of Service for my Grandmas funeral next week.... Only 50 made with embossed flowers although I still need to colour them in.  It seemed like a great idea at the time, but my Grandma loved my handmade cards so I just had to do it!

Hope you have a great Wednesday

Happy Christmouse

Morning, Today's card is inspiration for the LOTV August Facebook challenge which is Christmas. You can find it HERE and you have until the 16th to enter for a chance to win some LOTV gift vouchers.

Keeping to my usual style I have simply stamped the image on the card and coloured with copics, added some glitter and a simple sentiment.
Sometimes I feel like my LOTV cards are boring but I really do like to make the image the main focus of the card.

Stamps: Happy Christmouse from LOTV, Tiny Type from CBS
Card: Neenah Solar White, Real Red from SU

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday!

Festive Mouse

Morning... really quick Christmas card for you today using one of last years Stampin Up Christmas sets... I didn't actually get around to using it last Christmas so decided before I buy any more I should use what I have!

He is coloured in with copic markers and finished off with some paper piercing (very retro I know) and the sentiment from the set!

Hope you all have a lovely Thursday

Sending You Smiles

Morning, I ordered a couple of new Penny Black sets (I looovvveee them) so decided to make a mega quick card last night using the CAS(e) this Sketch again!  This time I flipped it!

The back ground is done using distress oxides on a block spritzed with water.. I really love the effect and made a few back grounds whilst practising! The fussy cut image is coloured with copics and placed over the top.

This is the sketch for this week... CTS #232

I'll be back later in the week... Have a great Tuesday!
