A simple Birthday card

A simple card, it explains itself really. Just some die cuts and scattered sparkles. I'm hopeless nowadays remembering which company's dies are from ( there are so many or is it I have too many lol) but think they are Memorybox. In a hurry, mojo flat so simple is the way to go in my book. It always does the trick.

Thinking of you moments!

Been a long long time not blogging, still been crafting away on and off and got me thinking my neglected blog needed some crafty love back into it. So starting with this pair of cuties from MFT stamps and dies. Have coloured them with Copics. Used Mocha brown, Cream and Pink for my colour scheme.

90th Male Birthday Card

Been a long time since I blogged, mainly due to slow broadband these days and my creativeness flew out the window! Only making a card when I needed too and struggled to be happy with the finished article. This card took me three weeks to make, nothing difficult or fancy about it, just kept starting and stopping before I really got going. Pleased how it turned out so thats a start! So heres hoping Ill have more to share soon.

90th made with plain cardstock, embossed and glittered

First time using this card design, found the template on Pinterest. Thought it was a perfect card design for showing off the images and I know the receiver will have it on show long after his big day.

bye for now

White on White!

This might be my first and last attempt at playing with Gesso and textured paste and since I don't have much in the way of different mediums to bring it to life I went for white on white and just inked the edges of everything. Played safe I think, should of gone to some mixed media classes so I could of let my hair down. I like it so thats the main thing.

Sweet Dreams!

Well we get a fine couple of days here and I go and attempt some gardening, just can't wait for someone else to do it and things go down hill from the start lol! Cut back a few branches on a dogwood and was pulling them out when out of nowhere a smack right in the eye so that was the end of my bit of gardening and everything else for a few days. A trip to A&E Monday night and back Tuesday morning for another check. Scratched the surface of my eye, really lucky there was no bits in it. So this is the first day I have spent any length of time online. Saying that was feeling pretty sorry for myself on Tuesday night and did a bit of online shopping, just hope I bought the right things as vision was pretty hazy through one eye!  So no crafting done this week but have a card I made a few weeks back,  kept it very simple.

Coloured up this East Wind digital image with my Copics. Made an 8x8 card which I don't often make, think they're a bit big and I didn't have any 7x7's left. Hasn't a home to go to yet so no sentiment till it has.

bye for now

All Dressed Up adorable cutie

My card today is using a freebie kindly provided by Wendy from All Dressed Up over on Kit and Clowder, isn't she adorable! In her shop now on Etsy.  Loved colouring her up, mind you, took some time but was worth it.
Decided to keep it clean and fresh looking.

White card from Polkadoodles, love the smoothness and different weights so can use it for different things, mix and match so the whites are the same!

Say it with flowers!

Another die cutting session seems to be my trend at the mo here. Find it simpler to pull a few papers out and some dies and play about  when health has lost its sparkle at times so many of that kinda days nowadays. This keeps the madness away lol!!

Another 7x5 card this time, used smooth white card for matting and layering cut and embossed with a Spellbinder die. The pretty papers are scraps from MME. The flowers are a punch set, curl them in and some out to give some dimension then the tricky part making it all come together with the Memory box flourish which I cut in two, the 50th from Britannia dies and the tag thingies (forgotten their name lol) and the happy birthday sentiment.  Finished off with a couple of clear gems.

Thank you for dropping by, I love to read what you think!

Time to Relax

A 7x5 card using an All Dressed Up image called Time to Relax coloured with Copics and teamed up with MME papers, love these colours together.  Used basic Spellbinder ovals and scalloped dies, the flower die I have had for way to long and never used and didn't realise how pretty it was when cut out and the bow Im afraid I can't remember the company,  now, lying in bed last night out of the blue it came to me it could be a Marieanne die!

Just Because!

A card using an image from The East Wind on Etsy. Been colouring a couple of days a week recently just for fun and if they turn out half decent they go on a card. If not it's just another learning curve. Background to the image is a discontinued SU embossing folder I managed to find on ebay, added some punched flowers. Image coloured with Copics.

A Card!

Really! Been nearly two weeks since I made one.

Really chilly here today, sunshine and snow showers, typical Scottish weather so climbed the stairs and hid in my craft room all day (got rid of the man for the day lol). Did a bit of card sorting out, must remember to jot down what I'm low on instead of buying an assortment everytime I go craft shopping! I then decided to finish this card I started a couple of weeks ago. Hasn't got a home to go too so no sentiment yet.

Cream linen/Kraft card
Kraft paper for the flower
Elizabeth Craft Designs Peony
Tim Holtz (so gorgeou) die, cut one corner then flipped over to other side and repeated
Ribbon/String from stash
Roses embossing folder for the Kraft frame

thank you for making time to drop in by
