Game on…

Hello

After the cute mice in my last post I am now sharing something a little different!

I randomly stamped the game controls from PTI ages ago until recently I didn’t have the “right” sentiment to finish the card off. I know hard to believe I didn’t have the right sentiment! I used SU Biggest Wish.

Thanks again for stopping by

Recent makes…

Hello

Just popping in to share a few recent requested card makes for a friend.

An Elsa inspired card I totally CASEd from here. Thanks Lyssa. I did make one modification I used Uniquely creative stitched dies to get the curves of the dress. Those dies aren’t just for landscapes!

I also made my own shimmer spray mixing Isopropyl alcohol and shimmer paint in a spray bottle.

The next couple of cards seem to be frequent repeats!

I did consider not sharing even though they are new makes they are layouts I have used many times before! Funny I don’t really like mass producing – made 10 of one card as an invitation once and that was a struggle! However going back to making a card that seemed to work doesn’t seem to be an issue! Especially if it is for a friend and I can show them a pic before I start.

Do you ever go back and make a card again?

Sadly we were in need of a sympathy card this week.

Once again I have gone for simple white die cuts with liquid pearl centres and a simple sentiment from Avery Elle – stamp and die cut.

I have an outrageously large pile of NBUS to play with before more new play things arrive 🙂 My dilema what to play with first!

In the meantime I plan to do a little reading – Bridgerton the Duke and I – while I continue knitting a Weir for myself.

Thanks for stopping

Colourful Silhouettes

Hello

Popping in today to share a couple of cards made with Papersmooches Botanicals 1 & 2

Pretty sure I saw colourful silhouettes over on Therese’s blog Lostinpaper some time back. Thanks for the inspiration Therese – I would normally stamp silhouettes in black.

I paired the Papersmooches stamps with Papertrey Ink Penned Elegance – love the font. I stamped these with Altenew inks Northern Lights collection.

Purple wine, Puffy Heart and Rose Quartz

Lagoon, Volcano Lake and Mountain Mist

Thanks again for stopping by

Wedding requests

Hello

I had a recent request for some wedding cards

I used some very old stamps sets and layouts/sketches I have made many times.

A lot of little punched out flowers! Putting some small pieces to use.

The rest of today I am planning to sort out the layout for my first ever sewalong. I’ll share the finished quilt top soon I hope!

Thanks for stopping

Pairing NBUS with older sets!…

Hello

Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!

I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!

This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.

A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.

For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.

And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.

Thanks for stopping

A few love inspired cards…

Hello

Today I have a few love inspired cards to share.

First time I have used the set “Dogs” from Jane’s Doodles. I am linking this card up to the current challenge at NBUS.

I used an old PTI stamp set and SU punch for this card.
More PTI!
I used an unnamed bird stamp (it’s so old I have no idea where I got it from!) I created the Heart by making a mask from a die cut, stampinig within the mask then I added some talking lines. To finish I added the sentiment from YNS.
The last one for today uses stamps,dies & punches from SU. I created my own pattern paper by randomly stamping words and images.

I have a few other cards to share too so will be back soon!

Until then stay safe and well in your little part of the world.

Cheers

Vicki
