I am still here ha ha.  I don't craft so much in the Summer months, spending time looking after the garden instead.  Now the colder whether is on the way I will be back in my studio with plenty of creations to share with you.

Love the Anita Jeram illustrations bought to us by The Colarado Craft Company, the main image is titled Rooting for you which includes amongst other things the sentiment too.  The background stamp is titled Summer Garden.  Coloured with Promarkers, mat & layered with Sizzix Surfacez cardstock, a few gems to finish.

Birthday FISHES ...

Second post today, I am on a roll ha ha :)
Looks clean & simple but took a wee while to cut out on my Silhouette to make all the shaker layers!  So gorgeous new stamps from My Favourite Things titled Gillfriends.  Plenty of little fishes to choose from and some fab sentiments included too.

The two main fish are stamped and coloured with Promarkers on the inside, the other fishes have been stuck inside the shaker along with some clear cup sequins.  Recycled ribbon, charm and a stand to finish it off.

Thanks for your support fellow bloggers and to quote a sentiment in the stamps; 'I'd FLOUNDER without you'  happy crafting Jane

Another creation using the Spellbinders Betterpress system.  The card for this is 100% cotton which gives an amazing image and very tactile.  This HAPPY & BIRTHDAY press plate is from the exclusive bundle available over at Spellbinders UK along with the flower plate.  The butterfly I have taken from the Butterfly Garden press plate.  The blue ink is titled French Blue also in the exclusive bundle direct.  

Bye for today, Jane

happy birthday TO YOU ...

My first play with the Spellbinders Betterpress system.  It is in my opinion worth all the hype and awards, the impression is just gorgeous and seeing is believing, although I do appreciate it is a considered purchase.   Normally I am a alcohol marker kind of girl, but the ink used with this system incidentally created by Ranger is not recommended as it will bleed.  So I have used blending pencils for this one.  I will of course try markers in the near future but as I say I was just playing about, not intending to actually create a finished card.  So coloured cardstock, mat & layered, vellum and the gorgeous press plate which comes with the starter kit along with the sentiment from the Little Message plates. 

Thank you for popping by my blog today

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.

Happy crafting Jane x

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.

Thank you for popping by my little old blog today, Jane x

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.

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