HIP HIP hooray ...

Playing with another new stamp from the fabulous MFT titled Picture Perfect Party Animals, such fun.

I have made a DL card and I think would be called an overlapping gate fold style? I have made the parrots frame into a shaker for a little extra fun.

Absolutely loved colouring these using Promarkers.  Hand stitched, hooray, stars, glossy accent noses, balloons, ric rac, papers, acetate and some bling to finish.  

Thank you for popping by, stay safe love Jane x

I am the GUEST DESIGNER over at

Winner badge

for this month and the challenge for all you Tilda & Edwin fans for August is 'Anything Goes' with the option of water.

I am sharing another teepee card, this one is using 6" squares.  I have made a special box so not worried about the amount of embellishments.  Nitwit digital papers, hand stitched, Tilda as a Clown from the Once Upon a Time Collection (sorry no link she is an oldie).  Flowers, cheesecloth, pom pom braid all from my stash.  Enamel dots, various die cuts including Doohickey, coloured with Promarkers, rosette made on the Silhouette.  Sentiment from Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil; More Sentiments.  And I just love to put a shiny red nose on her ha ha.



for the month of August.  The challenge this month is 'Anything Goes' with the option of holiday dies, can't wait to see what you come up with.

A teepee card, much simpler than I first thought, this one is using 5" squares but they can be any size you like.  Very pretty & elegant using the gorgeous 'Porch Tilda', Nitwit Collections digital papers, hand stitched, flowers, cheesecloth and varioius die cuts.  Coloured with Promarkers. Sentiment is from Spellbinders, hot foil plate onto acetate and cut with the inclusive banner die.  I have made some personalised ribbon for that extra touch.  Teepee cards do fold flat for posting but as this will be hand delivered I have made a coordinating box.

Well Mama Elephant done it again with these agendas, wow, out of this world ha ha.  I knew straight away who my first make using these goodies was going to be and I am pleased to be able to share with you now. 

So I have also been expanding my distress oxide collection and for my first galaxy background I am rather pleased but of course there is always room for improvement; I used Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire & Black Soot.  Liquid star dust & embossing enamel.  Stamped images & coloured with Promarkers.  Cut on my Silhouette, hand stitched, sequin stars, glow in the dark embossing powder for the stars, spaceship rays and sentiment.  Matted and layered using 3d foam pads.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -

G I A N T prawns anyone ...

Regular followers may remember my previous post HERE making the Paper Prawns which was a free file on the Silhouette Studio courtesy of the talented Lisa Lloyd. #paperprawn challenge. Well I have actually lost count of how many I have made but these are my final (for a while) two and I just had to make them GIANT prawns.  I have placed two smaller ones at the front for perspective but they are around 30 cm in length.  Again cereal boxes, as you can see but such fun and so effective and swimming off to their new homes as we speak.

Stay safe and craft love Jane x

Especially F O R E you ...

Sharing a slider/shaker card today, I have used Kraft for the base/structure of the card.  I used the gorgeous 'Playing Golf' stamp (from back in the day) from Lili of the Valley for the main image &  the 'Celebrate Quotables' stamps (back in the day) for the inside, heat embossed in gold. I made a little shaker for the golf bunker, complete with a lost golf ball!

So of course a double slider, just pull from the right and both sides are revealed, the magic is simply a strip of plastic?  Coloured with Promarkers, grass, flags, clouds & star. Birthday sentiment, Fore' sentiment is cg on SafmatArgyle embossing folder, hand stitched, sand from Porto Santo, lovely colour don't you think.  

That is all from me today, thanks F O R E popping by peeps

Bye for now, Jane x

Many Thanks ...

Having a go at no lines colouring using these gorgeous Hummingbirds from Pretty Pink Posh, finally managed to add them to my stash as they were never in stock when I was placing orders; couple of other items fell in my basket too, oops!  

So I stamped in London Fog, die cut the images, coloured using Promarkers and pencils.  Cut a mat to suit in this case a 6" square card blank and inked with Tumbled Glass & Squeezed Lemonade, splattered with some water and dried.  Stamped the sentiment included in the set in white. Cut a mirror frame, foam pads for the birds and some Sizzix sequins to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Passion for Promarkers - Blue/Yellow (I Won Top 5)!

Happy crafting, Jane x
