Hula Gnome ...

Just fell in love with this little fella, I just adore the sentiment.  CAS layout, coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched and a few gems to finish.  Such a joy to colour, the first of many.

Confession, had this stamp 'Let the Day Begin' from Whipper Snapper a long time and this is its first inking, oops. So pretty simple, foil quilled sentiments, coloured with Promarkers and a mini wobble spring, great fun.

Love this stamp; Wild Roar by Mama Elephant, took some stamping to get this effect and indeed some colouring too, but well worth it.  Foil quilled the sentiment and matted onto gold glitter cardstock & also quilled the leaves & birds onto the vellum.  Some glossy accents for the little noses & white highlights too.  Hand stitched and some gold gems to finish.

In celebration of the Coronation of King Charles I have made a CAS card.  Silver foiled quill sentiments on lush purple cardstock.  I have a little experience of quilling on my Silhouette but never has it gone right first time as this one did.  Hand adhered gemstones for the crown, red heart cut on the Silhouette and some white organza ribbon.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Creative Inspiration - Red/White & Blue or Royal

Wishing my fellow crafters a very Happy Coronation Weekend, enjoy x

i love you beary much ...

I am still in blog land, crafting away, just nothing I can show with you all at the moment.  So I thought I would share this cutie for now which has been in my draft box for a wee while; Theodore by Sizzix.  Never used any of the Colorize Thinlits by Tim Holtz but this jumped into my shopping basket.  He is a good size, I have used a DL size card to give you an idea.  I have once again used distress oxide and water for my matting, brown cardstock, hand stitched, acetate, organza ribbon, vellum, hearts and gems to finish.

Take care, Jane

Love came down at Christmas time ...

This years very special makes complete, over 35 cut elements per card, along with colouring and assembly.  Taken a wee while but I am really pleased with the results.  

I must first and foremost thank Wanda as a designer for The Greetery for the idea of the little heart, it is a great little touch and I just had to add to my special creations, so thank you Wanda.

So backing paper is from Nitwit Collections, The Greetery Hourglass dies & coodinating elements.  Pine Bough and sentiment banner also from The Greetery, they really have thought of everything for this one.  Main hourglass elements & pine bough all cut in white card and coloured with Promarkers, gold card, embossing enamel & a couple of gems to finish.

Merry Christmas crafters, Jane

HAMMMMY birthday ...

I just love any of the agenda stamps from Mama Elephant and this one is no exception, had this one from release but only just inked up, oops! Paired up with Celebration Hamsters, just adorable.

So I have stamped a wrap for an 6" square card blank.  Coloured with Promarkers, stitched vellum shaker with confetti. Computer generated Hammmmy and birthday die.  Glossy accents for the chocolate on the cake.  Inside, pink polka dot papers, hand stitched and a mini wobble spring for this little fella too.  CG sentiment for the inside also there is a stamp in the set with the same sentiment, I just wanted a different font.  A few little pastel pearls to finish.

Merry Christmas to my fellow crafters & bloggers
