Mothers Day ...


For Mothers Day I had a play with a couple of new die sets to my collection.  Available here in the UK exclusively at Seven Hills Crafts; Market Baskets & BotaniCuts Tulips.  So paper is Nitwit Collections, hand stitched, Gold Mirri for the basket, Sizzix Surfacez yellow card for the basket and Neenah white card, coloured with Promarkers, highlighted with white pen and a couple of water droplets with Glossy Accents.

Happy crafting Jane x

Eighty ...

Today I am sharing a special eightieth birthday card which I have made a a lovely lady celebrating today.  So the 3d mason jar is a cutting file over on the Silhouette Design Store by the lovely Lori Whitlock.  I haven't used the flowers in the file but the gorgeous Sizzix Wildflower Stems, cut on smooth white cardstock and individually coloured using Promarkers.  Took sometime to colour but I love the effect.  I have slightly aged the cardstock with Gesso and the heart is also from Sizzix, which I just love.  So the lovely recipient didn't want to be made a fuss of, so I have discreetly put the BIG 80 on the reverse of the tag so she can leave it on the window sill without anyone thinking anything other than a nice jar of flowers.  So I made a box to suit and also some 80 confetti too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes/No Patterned Papers (I Won Top 3)!

Thank you for visiting my blog today, see you again soon, Jane x

Super Edwin ...


Second post today :), I am also Guest Designer for March over at Simply Magnolia  and the challenge this month is Men's cards, sometimes we struggle with the guys creations but I couldn't resist a few new releases from Magnolia including this goooorrrrgeeeoooouuus Super Edwin, isn't he fab and perfect for the hero's in our lives ha ha

So distress oxide background, complete with Liquid Stardust.  Hand stitched, cut hearts & stars from mirri, glitter, vellum & textured card.  Coloured with Promarkers, sentiment from the new release too. A few gems to finish.

Pisces Tilda ...

Time for another challenge over at Magnolia Forever, super easy Anything Goes
So I am Guest Designer for March and I have chosen to use one of my all time favourite Tildas.

 I picked up a few bits before Christmas in the Sizzix  sale including this Winter Scene but as I had already completed my Christmas creations I opted to have a play with Pisces Tilda and make a shaker box/card.  (the verse can be written on the back).  First attempt, so it is ok but I would do things a little different next time around.  Papers, flowers, various Doohickey dies, cheesecloth, frilly organza ribbon, coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched, sentiment, acetate and a mix of sequins, sand, shells and dew drops to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes (I Won)!
Passion for Markers - Feminine (I Won Top 5)!

Please do come & play along with us HERE

That is all for today, happy crafting, Jane x
