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.

Polkadoodles Eli

Tuesday so that can only mean one thing. A new Digi-Choosday challenge and discount code is available now. Pop over and claim yours here
The DT brief was to use a critter image and to make a flap for something.
I decided to create this cute slot for a gift card

Dad

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

Lets Have Coffee

 A super easy bit of inking today, using the caffeine critters from The Greeting Farm

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

Spring Polkadoodles

 It is Tuesday so time for a new Digi-Choosday challenge over at Polkadoodles Digi-Choosday. Our design team brief was to use a spring image and bright colours. I unconsciously lean more towards pastels and kept reaching for my favourite blends so this was a good time to push the boundaries and experiment

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

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

There is a video up on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

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

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

Rocker Card Wet Noses and Sloppy Kisses

 Another card made with the adorable Wet Noses and Sloppy Kisses Sytamp Set from Sassy and Crafty

Heart new arrival

My baby days are over so I literally  can not wait to hold my Brother and Sister In Laws baby. Lockdown means we are missing out on so much. Baby snuggles are just one. He has arrived and is just gorgeous, both are well

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

Treat Yourself

I am loving circle shaped cards at the moment, they just add a little something and I am not even really sure what it is if I am honest. 
I think the die cut Happy Birthday is the perfect accompaniment 

Birthday Hero




Life can be hard at times and we are all heroes in our own rights. This is the perfect birthday card for our little superheroes. I love the confidence of the stance on this stamp. She is just rolling up her sleeves ready to take on what ever is thrown at her

Cupid

Love is certainly in the air, This adorable stamp set was a free gift from Clearly Besotted and I am really pleased with how they turned out.

Yayyy

I love looking through my stash and seeing things I have forgotten. I just love this little windmill. I always wanted to live in a windmill when I grow up! Especially one on a hill, not sure why that had to be part of the dream but it was.

Birthday Wishes

Another card showcasing one of the fabulous prizes on offer at our birthday challenge. This prize is by sponsor The ArtsyStamper 

Mixed Media Background

I made this background for another project ages ago and just did not love it, so I made something different and this has been sat on my desk ever since. As the weeks have gone by it has grown on me and I now love it so it just had to be used.

Purfect

My no spend January went so well I lasted until 8pm on the 1st!!! Then cracked and purchased the entire January release from Clearly Besotted.
