Ship has sailed ...

Sharing another of the adorable MFT Old Friends; firstly the sentiment, party hat & balloons are from the Festive Old Friends and then the main man is from the first Old Friends stamp set.  Great characters and perfect for so many people if you know what I mean :)  The papers are Nitwits, coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched, and a little piece of vellum embossed for a bit of texture.  

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
Creative Inspiration - Sketch (I Won Top 3)!

Sixtieth ...

Milestone birthday shaker card today, using the gorgeous Wilma loves wine from Stamping Bella.  I have cut the shaker on my Silhouette, image stamped on first & last to create a 3d effect.  Some little heart sprinkles & a few lemon fruit slices too.  Coloured with Promarkers, a little hand stitching, papers from Nitwits, gold organza ribbon and the sentiment is heat embossed in gold. Card size 7x5.

Happy crafting, Jane x

HAPPY birthday ...

 So since The Greetery have exclusively arrived here in the UK with Seven Hills Crafts, I have been building my collection.  Many to play with and share, that may take some time, this is the Pinwheel Party Collection; diesstamps & stencils.  I have used 'birthday' from the Let's Have A Word Collection too.
I have layered on black, gold and then black cardstock, heat embossed Frantagedistress oxide the Pinwheels, gold heat embossing and a few gems to finish.

Congratulations ...

You may have seen my feature in Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 230 HERE released earlier this month featuring Anniversary cards.

 Well today I want to share another, this is for a Diamond Wedding in a light grey, again using the embossing folder from Altenew; Rose Bouquet.   If you haven't tried the 3D folders yet, they are super easy and very very elegant and a quick make too, bonus.

Happy crafting Jane x

Once again the stamp Miss Your Smile from PinkFresh Studio.  It is a very large stamp for a DL card ideally but I have made a 6x6.  Colouring inspired by a photo of a Dahlia I took last year.

Navy card, gold embossed, stripe paper, gold mirri, coloured with Promarkers and a few water droplets.

Happy crafting, Jane x

I love this little fella, such a joy to colour.  So papers, CG sentiment, coloured with Promarkers, glitter card & some gems to finish.  Been a while since I have made a pop up inside, acetate spiral with coloured hearts. Really simply but always surprises.

Count your rainbows ...


Once again I am the Guest Designer over at Simply Magnolia and this months challenge is 'Birthdays' using the gorgeous Tilda or lets not forget Edwin.

I have been wanting to make a lollipop card for a while and thought it would be perfect for this new edition to my collection; Unicorn Pyjama Tilda.  So I have used a variety of Sizzix Surfacez cardstock, Rosette file, coloured with Promarkers, flowers, cheesecloth, clear dew drops, ribbon & bells from my stash.  The sentiment in the Sizzix shaker reads; count your rainbows not your thunderstorms with some beads. Star, sun, clouds & heart are all Doohickey dies from various club boxes. Finally gold foiled sentiment from Spellbinders.

Please do come and play along with us HERE
