May all your WILDEST dreams come true


Love these 'Outside the box' dies from My Favourite Things, super easy and so much fun.  So I have also used the 'Grass' add on and a couple of stamps sets; mostly 'Sweet Safari' also from MFT coloured with Promarkers, also I have used stamps; 'Adorable Elephants' (balloon), 'Sky High' (bird)  & 'Magical Unicorns' (sentiment).  A couple of dew drops to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -

Lucky ...

 


I just adore this image from the Colarado Craft Company and illustrated by the fabulous Anita Jeram; 4 Leaf Clover.  


Very simple really, stamped several times, coloured with Promarkers and then decoupaged using silicone gel.  I wanted to give the perspective that this little fella was literally in the clover, so pretty. The sentiment is included in the set which I have heat embossed in gold.

Happy Crafting, Jane x

Merry Christmas ...

 


Treated myself to the 'Outside the box' dies from MFT, sadly couldn't get hold of the 'snow drift' add on for now so improvised with the newly released 'clouds' add on.  Grabbed a few more stamp sets too, including this little cutie which I have been waiting for the restock for a while, just adorable.

These dies are super easy to assemble and very effective, love them.  So coloured with Promarkers, snowflakes, papers & gems to finish.  Take care fellow crafters, stay safe and have a Merry Christmas

Love Jane x

Who can't wait for Christmas ...


Well I just couldn't resist the first release of the wonderful illustration stamps by Anita Jeram in collaboration with Colorado Craft Company.  This one is from a set titled Christmas Presents, just adorable.  You will seeing plenty of this fantastic new release in the new year I am sure of that.

Treated myself to some watercolour brush pens for this one but I certainly do need some more practice and I did revert to highlighting with my faithfull Promarkers and my signature dotty style.  Something to play with more in the coming year me thinks.

So pretty clean and simple, mat onto Nitwit paper and finished off with some sequins and some snow.

Do what you love, Jane x

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.

Winner badge

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

SOMEONE SPECIAL ...

I am a GUEST DESIGNER at


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.

BEST OF LUCK ...


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 -
