fathers day husband

Now this is the one card that I always want to buy. How can you thank someone that dedicates his every breathing minute to you and his kids. So I went soppy

Anniversary

 It was our Wedding Anniversary in April, we have been married 13 years. I intended to make a pop up box card but that evolved into a different card somewhere along the way so here is the anniversary card I ended up making


Vintage Anya

I have had this image coloured up for ages just pinned on my desk waiting fir some inspiration, she was a little experiment actually as I wondered how my markers would fare on the kraft card

Card Making Tutorial

I begun my stamping and colouring Anya on the kraft card. She was coloured using alcohol markers. She was cut using the torn nesting die.

She was layer using cream card and patterned papers. These were mounted together

I used the smaller stamps in the pack with the verasmark ink and heat embossed them with the pink embossing powder. 

The background was trimmed using the deckle and blended in speckled egg


The sentiment die was cut using the same papers i used on the nesting die 


This was adhered onto an A5 Kraft Card base. The card was finished with ribbon and nuvo drops

Wizardy Magic

A bit of DT inspiration for you today. Do not forget that there is a new Digi-Choosday Challenge post opened this morning and as always there is a discount code available until midnight GMT today.

The DT brief was to use an image or technique that you have used a lot.

Well it had to be my colouring and a wizardy magic image

Dad

 I love this regal badger and thought he deserved to be centre stage for his own card

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

Magical Day

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

Thanks a Bunch

I adore this written background stamp and feel it will be very versatile. Today I have used it to create a thanks card

Best Teacher

 One of the things that drew me to the Creating Chemistry set was its versatility it was suitable for valentines day, graduation and teacher. This year I am getting ahead of the game and have started the thank you teachers cards. I feel they have done amazingly in these strange times. My daughters teacher is teaching and holding online lessons while addressing the mental health needs of this very young population during times of uncertainty

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

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...

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. 

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.

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 

Miss your face

So I have had this stamp set in my basket at least 3 times before I finally purchased it. I love the little painting cats and the sentiment is perfect.

I think lockdown may be starting to get to us all, my dad has had to come and help get the patio back down after they had plumbed in the garden room as it was dangerous with the dog and the kids. We did not have an option as could not afford to pay anyone. He stayed in the garden the whole time though and it was awful because by mum could not come too. If felt ridiculous the 3 of us in the garden in face masks. Even when you do see people you forget what they look like without a mask on

Equality Awareness Hop

Betz Golden recently posted a blog article about the lack of stamp companies that offer stamps to support the LGBTQ+ community. In order to raise awareness she is hosting an Instagram hop, Sassy and Crafty is one of the few companies that have stamps to support so as a member of the DT I was invited to join in. There are a number of really great prizes up for grabs so check out the Instagram hop 

This is a cause that is very close to my heart. I am one of 4 and have a transgender sibling.  I will not go into detail as to protect their privacy. Only very close and old friends are aware of their past, as the discrimination that they come across is unbelievable and down right disgusting. 

Here is my creation

Team Tiny Love Hop

Apologises I do not participate in a hop for ages and then bombard you with a number of them all at once. I like to keep on my toes...

This card has been created as part of the Team Tiny Love Hop on YouTube. Team Tiny is a group of like minded people on facebook who have less than 1000 subscribers and want to grow their channel. 

In the spirit of Valentine's Day the theme this month is a Love Hop. This is a hashtag driven hop so you search #teamtinylovehop on YouTube to see all participation 

Darling Buds

It is Tuesday so time for new challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi Choosday Challenge Blog. Don't forget to take advantage of todays discount code. You can find all the details on the challenge.

The design teams brief was to make a Mother's Day card which featured a wrap around band and an image from the Darling Bud Collection.

This meant I got to colour my snowdrop darling bud which I have not coloured up in so long
