4 Cards from 1 A4 sheet…


I have found myself with a little extra crafty time this week. That meant I could a) watch a youtube video or 2 b) actually follow through with one of those newly acquired crafty “must try” techniques that I plan to do however rarely complete!

Playing with Garden Gate…



My Flourishes Garden Gate and water colour paints were well overdue for some love.  I got them out and made the following card which I will link up to the challenges below.

Double D Challenge – Rose Garden here


Bizzy Becs – Anything Goes here

Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes Birthday here

I stamped my image from Flourishes Garden Gate using my repositioning stamping tool.  Once I coloured my image with my water colours I then restamped the images. I think this gives a nicer result.  The sentiment is from Mudra Purely Sentiments brushed. Card front mounted onto watermelon cs before adding to my card base.

And yet more NBUS …


Yes more NBUS for the current challenge here


For this card I used NBUS images from Uniko Originally Organic and Originally Organic Additions. Sentiment is from Mudra Purely sentiments brushed used for the first time in the last post.

I coloured my images with SU markers (pear pizzazz, lemon lime twist, daffodil delight) and flowers stamped with calypso coral.

My moutain of NBUS is slightly smaller (for now!) must use some of the things that have been sitting there for a while and also make a dent in the pile of things started and not finished.  Please tell me I am not alone.

I also have a couple of knitting and sewing projects on the go.  Must get some pics up.

Until next time
