I hope your December is going well. Mine is whoosing by so fast! Popping in to share a few things I’ve shared recently on FB/insta
First up is a card using Jane’s Doodles stamps coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut and popped up on a stencils card front.
More Jane’s Doodles coloured with alcohol markers and popped up with foam tabs.
How fab is Edna? I coloured her with alcohol markers, fussy cut and popped her on my card front. Of course her wings are winked!
Just for a change Ms #3 had a baby shower recently. Even though I knew for a few weeks I was still sewing & stuffing the elephant on the day of the baby shower. Love this pattern, Trunk show, from Jodie at RicRac sews.
A friend of a friend recently asked me to make this set of cards. I used Stamplorations die and Jane’s Doodles sentiments. The die cut was popped up with foam tape.
And to finish for today a few more softies I finally got around to stuffing. I have a few more on insta/FB if you want to take a look (link in the side bar).
ALL ABOUT ME! with the TWIST of using a self portrait BUT the portrait does not have to be a photo! What can you make of that? Remember, it can be a card, a tag, a scrap page, a journal page or a 3D paper thingy! BUT no stamps please!
I decided on a journal cover using Artplorations Wistful face stencil from Stamplorations and some rubons. Are you like me and keep crafty notes and ideas everywhere? I really love the “feel” of a notebook or journal.
I had a few ideas before settling on the stencil. A scrapbook page was ruled out as I’m not a big one for public photos or selfies and you don’t need to be for this challenge.
Just popping in to share a few recent requested card makes for a friend.
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.
Popping in to share my creation for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here
#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.
And this month is anything goes! as long as there are no stamps! You can link up here
Here is my card for the challenge
I created a coloured background on watercolour paper as the base for my Stamplorations Clear Sticker. The panel was die cut with stitched dies, mounted on black cardstock and added to my card front with patterned paper, punched banners and sequins.
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.
Miss S (19) and Ms A (14) are coaches of a local netball team and later today is the presentation day. Of course at the last minute Ms S asked for a thank you card. Fortunately I have been cutting my pattern paper into cardfront sizes in an attempt to use it up! The card base with pattern papper and mount was sitting on top of the small pile on my desk top waiting for sentiment inspiration when the request was made and happens to match the colours of the potted tulips she purchased. I added the die cut sentiment from Stamplorations popped up on fun foam and the flowers and leaves from my die cut stash also sitting on my desk. So I feel I have used something up! unfortunately the tub still has loads of pieces in it! I did finish up all the little leaves though.
Off to netball soon. Brrr looking at a wet and very chilly afternoon. Only 3 games to go for this season! We are currently sitting on the bottom of the ladder so no finals this year!.
Today I am sharing my DT entry for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here.
The challenge to use gold foil or glitter and white. No stamps or other colours.
I have die cut deer from SU Detailed Deer thinlits added to an embossed white die cut circle. The circle and deer were popped up with foam tabs as you can see with the shadow. We are enjoying some lovely sunny spring days. The sentiment is from Stamplorations. A little glittery bow to finish off.
Thanks for stopping. Will I see you in the challenge?
