Indigo Blu stamp, distress inks, Kanban, 21st Birthday card.

Hi again friends,

Just popping in quickly to share a 21st card, a little bit different for me, but I enjoyed making it, it's good to be a little versatile occasionally lol.
Please excuse the photo's, they were taken in rather a hurry, and Davina Bailey I am not !!!!

I used a fab Indigo Blu stamp for the central image, which I heat embossed, some Kanban card, and a few other embellishments, that I found in my stash.

Thank you all for visiting, if you have time, please leave me a comment.

Until next time,

Lavinia Stamps and Distress inks on an ATC and matching card.

Hi again Friends, fellow blogee's, and a huge Hello to my New followers.

This is Aprils ATC and matching card, which winged it's way across the pond, to  the US, as part of the ATC group, that I am a member of, the theme was 'Spring'. 
(For those who don't know, an ATC is a decorated piece of card 2 1/2" x 3 1/2")

I used Distress inks for the background, and some of the fabulous stamps from
'Lavinia Stamps', and finished off with a rather large dose of Stickles !!!

Take a look at the wonderful selection of goodies at Lavinia Stamps, and of course, make a project with the stamps and enter the 'Challenge', for a chance to win a £40 voucher.

Prima Doll stamp, Distress inks, Memory Box dies, Promarkers on a Tag.

Hello again,

I thought you may like to see the tag I made, using the yummy new Prima Marketing Doll stamps, I love them.

The background is a Prima Marketing tag, which I stamped and coloured with Distress inks, I stamped the main Doll image with Memento and coloured with promarkers, then cut her out. I used a few Memory box dies, which again I coloured with distress inks, a touch of glitter here and there, then added a stamped sentiment.


I hope you like this tag as much as the recipient did,
thank you again for dropping in, and thank you too for your fab comments.

Design's by Ryn stamps, Ranger Alcohol inks, Radiant Rain pourables.

Hello fellow blogees, friends and New followers,

It's the middle of the week again, gosh I really don't know where all my time disappears too, lol.

I've gone and used the lovely Designs by Ryn stamps again, if you've never used them before, do give them a try, they are Delicious. 

I have used Alcohol inks on the background on gloss card, stamped the images with black Archival, again on gloss card, and coloured the flowers and leaves with Radiant Rain Pourables. I also coloured the ribbon and the butterfly with the blue Radiant Rain to match.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit, thank you for popping in and it would be lovely if you left a comment.

Dylusion inks, Distress inks, Wow embossing powder, Magnolia 'Tilda' stamps and Tonic punch, on a Birthday card.

Hello friends, fellow bloggers and New followers,

I haven't had a lot of crafting time this week, boo hoo, I've been too busy working, and doing house stuff !!!! I hope to rectify that over the next couple of days, and play with some new stash that I had for my Birthday.

So here is a Birthday card, that I made last week for a friend who funnily enough, has the same Birthday as me, she's just a lot younger, lol !!!!

I have used Dylusion ink sprays for the background, stamped with Distress ink, and heat embossed with Wow glitter embossing powder, I then bleached out the cake icing with water. 

The topper was stamped with Memento, coloured with Promarkers, with distress ink around the edges, and the lace was achieved using a Tonic punch.

I added a sentiment, ribbon, and some glittered letters, and a bit of bling to finish it off.

Thank you once again for visiting, and for your encouraging comments,

Hope to see you again soon,

April 2013 Twinchie, with 'Designs by Ryn' stamps.

Hi friends,

This is my entry into 'Show us your Twinchies' Challenge 4 'Spring'.

I have used stamps from 'Designs by Ryn', 'African Daisy', and 'Three leaves set'. I stamped onto shrink plastic, and coloured them with Sakura glitter pens, then heated them to shrink, such fun, and just when you think they've gone all wrong, hey presto.......
The background is a bit of stripped cardboard, painted with gesso, then coloured with distress inks, and edged with some metallic wax, I added a bit of coloured string, and a butterfly to finish.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by again, and a big welcome to my 'New Followers'.

Off to play with some more cardboard now, catch you later....
