I know some of you might be a little wet! Hope you are managing Ok.
You are not seeing triple! I coloured a bunch of Jane’s doodles images a while ago with alcohol markers and made some into these cards. All the images are fussy cut and some are popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from ABS. I have a few more cards, I will share another day!
I don’t often share personal stuff, for those who have been following me from the start of my blogging journey know I am a mum of 4. When I started this blog my children were in primary and high school. Well I now have no children at school! My youngest finished her year 12 exams about a week ago. She will be 18 soon! Next year we will have one at uni and one completing his masters (child #2). Children #1 & #3 have both finished their studies and are working successfully in their chosen fields.
Today I’m happy to be participating in Bronwyn’s 60th Birthday Blog (&Insta) Hop! This is month 4 of 6 months of hops in the lead up to Bronwyn’s special birthday in lieu of an overseas holiday which has been put on hold. What a great way to celebrate a special birthday.
This months inspiration is from the current Stampin Up Catalogue pages 60 through to 69. You should have arrived here from Catherine’s blog
If you have seen Bronwyn’s creations you know she makes amazing 3D cards.
I wanted to create something a little different and to show stamps can be used for other things other than cards and memory keeping. So I have decided to stamp onto a ready made puzzle and a calico bag, cause you have to keep the puzzle in something!
I stamped my image from Count on me with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with SU markers and watercolour pencils. I did dab some of the colour off with a piece of paper towel. When I was happy with the colouring I restamped the image outline. When all was dry I finished by painting fabric fixative with a paintbrush over the stamped image. If you try this at home remember to put a scrap of card inside your bag to absorb the extra colour.
I have used the stamp sets Count on me (p61) and lovely you (p63) to create my puzzle design.
To create the puzzle I layed the images onto my stamparatus and stamped in quarters. Once the stamping was done I coloured with alcohol markers
I remembered to take a “before” photo after I had coloured one heart!
Thanks for stopping by and helping to celebrate in the lead up to Bronwyn’s special birthday. Next on the hop is Andrea.

Popping in to share a few more cards I made recently. It was fun to colour these up.
This little lady from AnnaBelle Stamps was fun to colour. I Fussy cut her out and popped her up on this tag die and then onto my card front.
These 2 from Kaszazz came together super fast, simple stamping with my repositioning stamp tool.
Love the look on the bear’s face! They remind me of old story books.
A llama from Newtons Nook coloured with alcohol markers and popped up on to a background I created a while ago using a stencil, embossing paste and ink refill.
Another Llama from Newton’s Nook also coloured with alcohol markers and popped up on to a stencil/embossing paste background.
I loved the look of the pots so I stamped a few, coloured and popped 2 up with foam tabs.
I love this sentiment. So true!
So now the weather is a little cooler (for a day or so!) I intend to finish binding a quilt I made for another recent addition to the extended family. Fingers crossed I can pop back and share mid week.
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.
