ATCAS- Animal

Morning, happy Saturday and it's time for another challenge over at ATCAS where our code word is "Animal".


Prize is 12.50 euro (1 stamp set)  to our winner.

For my card I've used this lovely image from Stampin up. I've simply coloured it with markers and then I cut it out using a pierced square die from MFT. The image was then mounted onto the base card which has been covered with a MFT  linen texture background stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you get time to play along with us this week,

Morning, happy Tuesday. Just a quick mid-week post from me today sharing a bright little card I made on the weekend.

The sentiment is from CASual Fridays and the bright enamel dots are from Lawn Fawn.

Sending You Sunshine!

Hello, sorry it's been over a week since I last posted but I have had a bit of a busy week! At school we've had GCSE coursework to sort and send off and then OFSTED arrived....... outside of school I've also had plenty of stress personally but that's enough about me it's time to share a card.  

Todays card has been made with my very first Clearly Besotted stamp set, which is now retired, but I still really like it. I've very simply stamp the images and then cut them sing the coordinating dies. I've stamped the sentiment onto a little MFT die cut banner and then layered everything up over some MME patterned paper and added a couple of gold gems!

Tada!!! My first card made in over a week!

I hope you're well and still reading.......

Addicted to CAS- Birds

Morning, it's time for another Addcited to CAS challenge and today our code word is "birds". 


Prize is $20 gift certificate

We are also thrilled have have Monika (Monika's Blog) joining us at Guest Designer for May.  Welcome Monika!

For my card I've masked off a circle and applied so blue distress ink to form the background. Then I've stamped a couple of Papersmooches birds (Surf and Turf set) onto a sign from another Paper Smooches set called Happy Camper. Finally, I've made some "grass" by cutting some patterned paper and added a few gems. 

I'm really pleased with the way my card turned out and I'd love to see your "birds" themed creations in our gallery!!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Morning, hope you''re well- did you many to get what you wanted from the Clearly Besotted release- I hope so!! Anyway, I'm back with something a bit different, I've been watercoloring onto some Paper Smooches stamped flower images.

The stamps are from the "Blossoming Buds" stamp set, after I'd created my layout I used a MFT pierced rectangle to partially cut around the image but left the leaves that went over the edges. I fussy cut these little bit of leaves with scissors. 

I though the image looked just right on kraft card, quite rustic. Ohhhh, I also added loads of pearls and gems to accent the flowers. 

Thanks for stopping by today,

Clearly Besotted Stamps Day 5

Well it's finally here, the release day for the May Clearly Besotted Stamps and that means it's my last day as guest designer and therefore this is my last sample card! It's been lots of fun using these new products, I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've created and don't forget they're in the online shop from 10pm tonight!!!

So for my finally card I've used some pretty flowers from the new "Delightful Day" stamp set.  I stamped the bunch of roses, the jar and the sentiment using a permanent black ink (Archival) and the added watercolour to the flowers and finished with some splatters of blue watercolour paint- to do this I just flicked the wet paintbrush over the watercolour card. 

I cut the image out using a pierced rectangle die and added it to a base card which was covered with pink patterned paper and a layer of spotty issue paper (which was actually part of some packaging I received around some beauty products). 

So there you go, that's been my 5 days of samples. I do hope you've enjoyed visiting and that you'll treat yourself to a little something later on tonight! I think I'll have to try and get my hands on the new shaker dies that Stephanie is releasing. 

Ta-ta for now,

Clearly Besotted Release- Day 4

Morning, happy Bank Holiday. I'm enjoying the long weekend and getting some crafting in too, I hope you are having a nice weekend too. 

Today I'm sharing a new floral stamp set called "Ribbon Flowers" which is part of the Clearly Besotted May release and is available to buy tomorrow night. 

I've applied two colours of purple Brilliance pearlescent ink to the flower stamp and then added the steam and leaves stamped in green Memento. Finally, the sentiment, which is also from the same set, has been stamped with grey ink and I've added some clear 
adhesive stones. 

I've been really enjoying playing with these new stamps, I hope you've liked seeing some of my samples. Don't forget there's one more day of samples before the new items are in the shop.

Thanks for stopping by today,
