Love

Just a quick post today to share the card I made for Valentine's Day...


Pretty simple as always... I used Joyful Heart Bears from MFT 


I've used Ink on 3 to achieve a no-line pencil colouring using my Prismas.  



The sentiment is from Sugar Pea Designs as well as the hearts and to finish I added a little shading underneath the bear.

Sending Mother's Day Wishes

Todays card is based around the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches...


I started with the daisy border from Stamplorations inked in hickory smoke Distress Oxide.

I used an ombre effect with mustard seed and carved pumpkin to the 'Sending' die cut to compliment the butterfly.

The rest of the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.


The butterfly is from Butterfly Trio by Penny Black and I've stamped it onto vellum and heat embossed with black detail embossing powder.

On the reverse and on the front I've gently blended shades of yellow, orange and red Prisma pencils and used a small amount of red liner tape just under the fat part of his body to adhere to the card.

One down, one more to go.

Birthday Gnome

A quick post today sharing a card I made a few weeks ago...


 I've used Hanging with my Gnomies from MFT aswell as the Happy Birthday circle die.


The gnome has been coloured with my Prisma pencils using only greys.

I wanted him to look like he was casting a Happy Birthday rainbow from his outstretched arms.

The die has been coloured with glitter gel pens and the middle has been embossed with a wood grain folder and popped back in.

To finish off I coloured a few pearls with a black sharpie pen.

HAP-PEA Birthday to YOU

Got a little bit of crafting time in yesterday to create a birthday card for the boys Grandad...


I dug out the Be Hap-Pea peas from Lawn Fawn and combined it with a big YOU stamp from MFT.


Pretty straight forward, stamped and coloured using Prisma pencils... nothing too fussy just some colouring to while away the hours and forget the new normal 😢 that exists outside my little zone!

Ha Ha Ha...

You're Older Than Dirt


Isn't that combination hilarious 😁

I just had to have this set called Wonky Donkey from Whimsy Stamps, the teeth crack me up!

He's been coloured with Prisma pencils and fussy cut out and slotted into the handmade Polaroid.


The HaHaHa has been adapted from a 'Happy' die and cut nine times from white cardstock with three being inked with red and then stacked for dimension.

I'm definitely getting my moneys worth out of this stamp set that's for sure 😏

The ladies at Time Out would like us to show them a bit about 'You' in card form... I thought I'd explain, firstly I love to colour and always have so most of my cards feature images that I sit and lovingly colour in.  Secondly I have a wicked sense of humour and if I asked my family they'd say... this card is typically YOU.

Merry & Bright

Been hangin' with my gnomies this week getting the cards made...


This is another happy chappy from the Whimsy set called Gnome for the Holidays.  I kept the design simple but as per usual the colouring took me hours!


I've used Ink on 3 and coloured with Prisma pencils.  The bigger than average fairy lights have had Glossy Accents added to them.


The sentiment is from Hero Arts part stamped and die cut.  The Merry has been inked in red then covered with clear sparkle embossing powder. 

The ladies at As You Like It would like to know who we like creating for, is it family or friends... My family wins hands down, simply because I smile when I'm making theirs :)
