Happy Father's Day ...

I have used a scrapbook layout from the Silhouette Design Store for this one, by  Carina Gardner.  Nitwit papers, hand stitched as I haven't done that in a while.  CG sentiment, gorgeous new stamps from My Favourite Things; Festive Old Friend.  Scraps of card, enamel dots to finish

Kick back, relax & take it easy ...

Shamefully I have to admit to owning this rubber stamp (now only available as a digi) for longer than I care to mention and this is its first inking, oops. So I came across this in my stash and decided to take care of Fathers Day. This card is a little interactive in that it has a 'tear strip' on the front which says "Kick back, relax & take it easy."  You then pull where the little crystal heart is to reveal the sentiment for Fathers Day.

I have cut all the elements on my Silhouette Cameo, Argyle embossing folder, papers & charm from my stash.  Coloured with Promarkers & pencils,  hand stitched and some pearls.

Full of Surprises ...

So much fun making these little box cards from MFT, this time I have used the grass add on, Panda Pals, BB Birthday Buds, Koala-ty Time and finally Adorable Elephants.  Great to mix and match so many stamp sets, they all work perfectly don't you think.

Coloured with Promarkers, digital papers, some sparkle on the balloons and a few gems to finish.

Summer Time ...

Summer Time, I know, wishful thinking right now, the weather? so I hope this makes you smile.

So this yummy Tilda is called 'Tilda with Big Ice Cream', coloured with Promarkers, sentiment on my Silhouette, Doohickey Antique Lace die, have to say when it comes to Tilda the lace die has to be one of my all time favourites.

Today I want to share a Lawn Fawn Camera and add on dies, camouflage style.  I even took the photographs myself with a little help from my Nature Cam, really pleased with how this came out if I am honest & perfect for the lucky recipient.  Really love being in the garden, growing my own fruit & veg and watching the wildlife, very rewarding & to incorporate my garden in my craft, well perfect.

To achieve this you also need the Let's Toast die along with the Selfie Frames for the 'Smile' die cut.  The embossing folder of ferns is one of my all time favourite folders, so very pretty and works well with this card.  Happy Birthday sentiment, enamel dots and a shaker to finish.

Happy crafting, love Jane x

Racing to wish ...

Another 'Outside the Box' creation, another male birthday, can you spot the car numbers; a big kid this time around.  I have used MFT 'Fast Track' for this one and MFT 'Better Together' for the balloons.  Coloured with Promarkers, Nitwit papers and some red gems.  I  have used Mama Elephant 'Little Signage Agenda' for the numbers.  A little glossy accents for the goggles to finish.

My regular followers will note a similar one of these, it went down so well I just had to recreate it, I suppose we are all young at heart ha ha.

Thanks so much ...

Just a couple of thank you cards using the gorgeous free stamps in Papercraft Essentials Magazine issue 168.  So pretty and lovely to colour, I used Promarkers along with what I think is called the eclipse technique using the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die and co-ordinating card stock in layers.  Hand stitched onto black cardstock. My faithful old Dymo machine for the sentiment.  Some glitter on the central flower, butterfly & pearl to finish.

hooray ...


Well I can finally share this card with you, first attempt at the black background colouring showcased by Stephanie Klauk.  Stunning effect, so elegant and very relaxing.  I opted to stamp this large MFT stamp; Harmonious Hibiscus in London Fog first using my stamping platform, coloured the flowers, re stamped in watermark and heat embossed in gold.  Finally coloured the black background.  A strip of vellum, hooray die, HAPPY BIRTHDAY sentiment and a few gems to finish.

Not a quick make but looks gorgeous, I will definitely be trying this effect again soon.
