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

Cheers

Mice Day to Celebrate…

Hello

Popping in to share a card I made with MFT Mice Day to Celebrate and SU Birthday Chick Dies.

After stamping all my mice and the cup cake I coloured them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I popped them up with foam tabs to create a little birthday scene. The timber is from pattern paper. The banners are die cuts.

Thanks for taking time to visit

Until next time

Cheers

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

Unstampabelles #111…

Hello

Popping in to share my creation for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here

Add our button if you wish

#111: ADVENTURES – TWIST use something three times
The adventure can be one you are having or someone else has had or will be having…..it is up to you to interpret the theme!
Repetition is the key – three buttons; one word – repeated there times;three different papers or ribbons or die cuts…..whatever is in threes.
We have some excellent inspiration for you

Remember, you can do anything that is paper craft related BUT NO STAMPS!

So I’ve gone with the adventure of a hot air balloon ride.

And for the twist I’ve used 3 hot air balloons, 3 clouds and 3 stickers!

Die cuts from SU Up&Away thinlits, stamplorations cutplorations and uniquely creative. Stickers also from Stamplorations. I die cut the largest balloon in fun foam and popped the smallest balloon up with foam tabs to give some extra dimension.

I hope to see you join in the fun at Unstampabelles.

Until next time

Cheers

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

A long over due card share…

Hello

Popping in to share a few cards I have made recently.

My stash of cards has got pretty low!

Love these Zebras!
A couple of chickens. I seem to have become addicted to this diaroma card. Love the simplicity and it still fits flat into a normal C6 envelope.
A mouse from Kaszazz.
Elephants from WPlus9
Simply diecuts
More for Easter. I broke out a few ancient stencils and did a little sponging. I glossed half the ABS eggs (top left) and coloured the chick with alcohol markers before poppin him up with foam tabs.

The rest of today I am playing at the sewing machine!

Cheers

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
