Just For You ...

Another Teddy Bo card for you to see today, green my fav colour combined with purple.  I have been playing with some more felt flowers, they are such a dream to make!  Also treated myself to the new Epiphany button studio which you can personalise your own buttons, these are my first buttons using some coordinating paper from Papermania.
Bazzill green cardstock with some Papermania Capsule purple gingham for matting and layering, along with some brown Kraft cardstock.  Lots of hand stitching, I find it very relaxing hence all my cards being stitched.  Celebrate sentiment is LOTV and the Just for you is Anitas.  Coloured with Prismas again and glossy accents for the noses.  Pearls from ebay, can't think which seller sorry.  Felt from the Felt Fairy using the Sizzix 3d die and MS punch for the branches.  
Thanks for looking once again, any comments you wish to leave or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, I am happy to share.
Take care, Jane x

To Say Thanks ...

Just a quick post today, another one of the lovely Teddy Bo images, loving the colouring with my Prismas too.  A simple card to say thank you for a male to give.
Brown cardstock is from Core'dinations Elements pack, red cardstock from my stash.  Glossy accents for his nose, hand stitched (for a change) and a couple of buttons and ribbon from my stash also.
The sentiment is from some freebie Pink Petticoat stamps from a recent mag.
Thanks for looking, lots more in the pipeline so please pop back again soon.

Take care, Jane x

Thinking of you ...

OMG I love these images, I have been playing with my new colouring medium; Prismas and they are just a dream to colour in.  Lots of stitching on this card and I have used my Sizzix 3d flower die with felt this time and they are just gorgeous don't you think? 
Striped backing paper from Forever Friends Spring Time collection.  Pink cardstock and Kraft card  from my local stationers.  Teddy 'Three Little Piggies' image, colouring medium PrismaColors.  Felt from the fabulous Felt Fairy, pins from Wild Orchid of course.  'Special Day' sentiment from LOTV and the other is computer generated. Pearls and gems from my stash, oh and the little button too!
Thanks for stopping by, playing with another of these fab teddies so I hope to post very soon, watch this space!
Take care, enjoy the fabulous weather (crafting of course) love Jane x

With Love ...

Today I have used one of my old stamps; she is called Heidi from CC Designs Swiss Pixie collection.
I have coloured using my Promarkers this time with a touch of Stickles for her wings.
Cardstock is from Coredinations and MME (mag freebie sometime ago)!
I made the flowers using a new die I purchased a week or so ago called Die-namics, I used basic pink cardstock, scrunched it up, spritzed it with Tattered Angels mist and to finish a pearl bead.  Branch punch is Martha Stewart.  Sentiment is a stamp which was free with a mag recently designed by Pink Petticoat and my ever faithful punch with no name; the butterfly! 
Pearls from my stash and of course hand stitched.
The polka dot paper was pleated and then hand stitched to secure in place.
Take care, love to hear your comments

A Special Guy ...

I won this handsome chap in some blog candy and I love it, I hope you do too.  This is a first for me as I have used my new Prisma Colors, I am rather pleased with the result but I certainly have a long way to go yet!!!  My little baby boy turned nineteen recently and this is the card I made him.  The tag was made using an old clothes label of his as a template and the old chord.  The flowers were made using his old FT!
As you can see it is a DL easel card another first as I am rather set in my ways and like using square ones most of the time!
Anyways onto the recipe,  black/purple cardstock from stash, buttons and  hand stitched.  Boutique ribbon from the Papermania Capsule Collection, flowers die cut again from the Sizzix 3d flower die, Martha Stewart branch punch.  'Live out Loud' sentiment is from Elusive Images (not sure where you can purchase this now)! 'A Special Guy' sentiement from The Greetings Farm.  'SON' punched using a Quickutz alphabet, finally the square black gems are from Papermania Mosaics; Onyx & Diamond range.
Hope you like it, take care, happy crafting

Mother's Day ...

Today I want to show you my creations for Mother's Day 2011.  They are infact watering can cards, you should be able to make out the opening at the rear of the can?  It gets harder and harder each year to make something different, a one off or in this case two!  

I got the template off the internet and enlarged so I could make the cans out of Bazzill 12x12 cardstock.  Simply wet glue together and then embellish with flowers, pins and babys breath from Wild Orchid Crafts and some handmade ones too, using Sizzix 3d flower die.  The sentiment is from Sundae of Seasons by Polka Doodles.  Butterfly is a Tonic punch adorned with gems for the trail.  Button, raffia, angel hair, wooden heart and ladybird all from my stash.  The leaves are again my MS branch punch.
Thanks for looking and I hope all Mums enjoyed their special day!
Take care, lots more crafting to do
