Happy campers

 So I have been going through my stamps to see what need a little more love and this stamp set sure is one of those.

I decided to create this cute slot for a gift card

Auto Immune Awareness Hop

I am honoured to be asked to participate in a YouTube and Instagram hop to promote Auto Immune Diseases. I do not have lived experience of this but living with no thyroid does mean that I have a little insight into chronic illness and how you just wish your body would participate as you want it too. Individuals who suffer from autoimmune diseases really are warriors 

Flying By


One of the design team for Time For Tea Designs used this cover plate with rainbow colours behind it and it looked amazing so decided to give it a go

Polkadoodles New Beginnings

 Tuesday again, my how these weeks are flying which I actually do not understand as we can not go anywhere or visit anybody. How did we ever find time to do that in the past???

Time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Challenge Blog as always the theme is anything goes and if you pop over today there is a great money off discount code.

The Design Teams Brief was new beginnings and pastel colours. Perfect for new grandparents. I actually had the brief when Oliver, my nephew was born so I made this card which I then sent to my parents.

Magical Day

 My Fairy and Unicorn mad best friend turns 37 so this card is for her.

Swing Card

This swing card is made using a slimline die from Time For Tea Designs. It is super easy to make and super effective

happy anniversay

My mum asked me to make an anniversary card for dad as they have been married 40 years. I had so many ideas I struggled to pin any down and for the first time ever really felt like I had lost my mojo

Mothers Collaboration

Todays card is part of a collaboration with Kelly from Kelly Crafts and Roslyn from Wing It with Ros

Mirror Image Stamping

I have seen so many people take about mirror image stamping but I thought it would be so difficult, let me reassure you it is easy!! Stamp your image onto a silicone mat, lay paper over top and apply pressure. Finished

Never give up

Time for a new release over at Sassy & Crafty and I just adore this one. It is called Never Give Up. Releases 5th March

Troll

 We had a period where we had to watch the trolls on a near daily basis and this little creature reminds me of Princess Poppy. For those that do not have young children please do not worry you are not missing out...

Perfect Time To Craft

Can you believe that we are on the third month of 2021 already?? We are on your 3rd national lockdown here in the UK so it feels even more amazing that we are in March considering we have done nothing for the whole of the year so far

Picnic bears

I do love a picnic and can not wait for this clod weather to be over so that we can go on a picnic again. It is half term here in England and we would normally be on holiday, we often go up to Scotland and last year went half the week in Edinbourgh, having picnics in the cold while seeing the sights. How I wish this was possible now. 

21st shaker

Having a birthday during in lockdown in mot fabulous but having a special birthday ay the moment must be awful. So I really wanted to make this card for my cousin a little special.

Congratulations

So Amy from A Crafty Purple Frog has released her own stamp range, they feature British Wildlife and are fabulous. Every time I place an order (she is my go to for the greeting farm) she places a little freebie in the envelope too, so I thought it would be nice to send her a little congratulations card

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by cutting a circle out of purple card to create my rocker card base. A piece of white card was then cut into a semi circle

Using the stencil and all the distress oxides except the seedless preserve I inked the card

The small stamps from the set where stamped with the memento dew drops

Using the circle dies I cut a piece of alcohol friendly paper and using the seedless preserve and the stencil inked the bottom

The images were stamped and coloured with alcohol markers. The sentiments were stamped onto here


This was then adhered onto a piece of blue card which had been cut into a larger circle. There were adhered together and finished with clear drops and nuvo drops.

Thank you for reading

Mum

As pretty as this card is now it very nearly did not happen. I stamped the sentiment and smudged it not once but four times!! Then heat embossed mum and smudged that too. I was not having the best day.

This card is for my Grandma from my Mum and Dad. She will kill me if I tell you how old she is so lets just say the wrong side of 85

polkadoodles reveal card

Gosh doesn't time fly when your crafting?? Tuesday again already and so time for another challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday Blog. Don't forget to claim your discount code. 

This weeks brief was to use 2 images and a card with a reveal. This is a first for me, I have never made one of these before but am totally in love with the result 

Peek a Wizard

 You all know just how Harry Potter mad my little girl is, so when I saw this stamp by Penny Black, I needed it. It has to be the longest time I have had a stamp without ever inking it up, it has sat unloved for at least 3 weeks, while I have been killing myself desperately trying to decorate our new garden room and get that up and running as a permeant craft space and family games room.


But we are getting somewhere, the plumber is here today and I will be under his feet in there, so I stamped this up, boiled the kettle and have settled down to 30 minutes me time. Long over due....
