Wedding Anniversary ...

CAS today, playing with another gorgeous new stamp from My Favorite Things, Peony Perfection.  Embossed in white on Desert Storm Neenah card and coloured this time with Prisma pencils.  A joy to colour and I am really pleased with the result.  CG sentiment onto printable vellum.  A couple of gold sequins to finish.

Hip, Hip, Hooray! ...

Could not resist some of the new release from My Favorite Things and the images by the gorgeous Stacey Yacula titled 'Hooray kind of day'  I have used watercolour card and inked up with Tumbled Glass & Twisted Citron and a small splattering of Liquid Stardust.  Images coloured with Promarkers and mounted on foam tape.  A couple of vellum clouds and some grassy bits also from Stacey a previous set titled 'Scene Builder'  A little drop of glossy accents for their noses.

Happy crafting, Jane x

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.

get whale soon ...

Loving the Magic Picture Changer from Lawn Fawn, so much fun.  Another stamp & die I have had a while with someone very special in mind.  Combined on this occasion with the Get Whale Soon before 'n' afters stamps.  Coloured with Promarkers, the waves are from MFT the Pop up wiper components, two in blue tones and a third in vellum which I have them embossed with one of my favourite folders which is actually titled Softly Falling from Stampin Up, I have used for snow, water on this occasion and also lemonade bubbles on a magazine make too, very versatile.
The cloud is from a Doohickey Club set.  The background is simply TH Distress Oxide (Salty Ocean) which I have then splattered some water on.

And the big reveal and I was so pleased with the placement of my whale, almost perfect.  If you look very carefully you will be able to see some little fishes behind the vellum these are from the MFT Gill Friends stamp set.  Thank you for popping by today, much appreciated.

Bye for now, Jane x

HAVE AN unbelievable BIRTHDAY ...

Look at these little cuties, fabulous, these are called 'Tiny Ninjas' from Mama Elephant. Love the way they stamp too, not a solid image but I guess you would say, sketched.  Well of course I had to make a spinner card and I used a cutting file from the Silhouette Studio Design Store.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Lovable Legends stamp set, heat embossed in gold.  Coloured using Promarkers.  Matted and layered onto red card and also scattered straw distress ink for the sky line.
