Squeal ...


Regular followers will have noticed I do like an interactive card and I have to say MFT have some amazing dies to create spectacular creations with ease and this one is no exception, the Interactive Up & Down dies which I just had to combine with the Piggy Pebbles, gorgeous piggy jumping in the puddle along with the fantastic sentiment, perfect me thinks.

Coloured with Promarkers in my usual dotty style, very therapeutic, simply layered with some polka dot paper and green cardstock.  I have used glossy accents on the puddle and rain and a couple of green pearls to finish.

Congrats ...

Well finally I can share this card with my blogging friends.  I made this for a special lady who is now a fully qualified veterinary nurse (RVN), her dream job, well deserved.

I have used the Picture Perfect stamps from MFT for this themed card.  The Scripty congrats is from Lawn Fawn and one of my favourite go to dies.  I have distress oxide the background with a splash of water then hand stitched.  The frames are also from MFT made into shakers, hearts & stars. To keep this modern and hip I have stapled the layers to the base.  Colored with Promarkers in my usual dotty style.

Hap - pea ...

I was lucky enough to get hold of the Magic Picture Changer from Lawn Fawn a while back and couldn't wait to get started.  These peas are just adorable and loved by all, young and old.

I have also used from Lawn Fawn the add on die set and the Hap-pea stamp set.  Papers are from Nitwit Collections, coloured with Promarkers, birthday sentiment stamp from Craftwork Cards stamped in black and heat embossed in clear.  Ribbon, green pearls and hand stitched.  Really fun to make and not as daunting as it may look, I think I will be making plenty of these in the future, watch this space.

Two posts in one day, on a roll or should I say a piece of toast, ha ha.  Sharing some older stamps and dies which hadn't yet been played with, until now.  The Lawn Fawn Let's Toast stamps, dies & add ons.

Background created with TH Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and a splash of water, Roxstamps Round  Nesting die and plenty of elements from Lawn Fawn.  Coloured as always with Promarkers.  Some Altenew Rock enamel dots to finish.  That is all for me today, see you again soon

Have a Claw-some ...

Had this stamp a wee while I confess with someone in mind before I went on to use it generally, anyone else do that or just me?

So gorgeous stamps from Lawn Fawn as always, titled 'you're claw-some' with plenty of stamping options.  I decided to use the hearts and stars for the base layer, colored with Promarkers, clear sparkles on the hearts and glossy accents on the stars.  Hand stitched as I hadn't done that for a while, matted and layer with coordinating card.  Sentiment from the set with a gold staple.  A little bit of movement on this one by way of the claw.

I have had a little play with the MFT Falling from the Clouds die & the Stacey Yacula Piggy Pebbles stamps.  Absolutley loved colouring this little fellow.  Not bad for a first attempt, next time not so many seed beads though!

Happy Fathers Day ...

A must have stamp the 'Wild Roar' from Mama Elephant, I simply could not resist.  A long colouring session I admit but so much fun.  TH distress oxide background and I have created a scene and used some acetate to create the front of the card too.  The little panda was holding a heart so I thought I would make a mini shaker.  Hand stitched as always, thank you for popping by to my blog.

Happy Easter ...

After my Mama Elephant Snowman Agenda creation HERE  I couldn't wait to make a Little Chickie Agenda card with the same concept. So I have made a few of these, blue & pink for family & friends.  Just spin where the little arrow is shown and those adorable yellow chickies go round, endless fun for me and I hope the recipients.

I have used papers from Nitwit Collections, cut on my Silhouette, coloured with Promarkers, little arrow stamp, some pearls and Floral Frenzy 6x6 Embossing Folder from Die Sire for the white vellum and of course hand stitched to finish.
