All About the Boys - Sweet Stampin'

Good Morning Everyone

Well its been ages since I last posted.  I don't know where the time has gone.  Its been so busy since being back after the Christmas break.  I feel like I need another holiday!

Anyway, I am back this morning with a card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  This time our theme is:

"Masculine Cards"

Not my most favourite challenge! I do struggle with male cards!  Here is my card:




The image is called Birthday Boy from TiddlyInks and you can get it as a set from our sponsor this week Quixotic Paperie.  I coloured with copics and just layered onto some bazzill card stock.  The die is La La Land Heart Banner and the dotty paper is just from my stash.  I doodled around the edges (not quite as good as my teamie Fi!) and the sentiment stamp is LOTV. 

As I mentioned above our sponsor this week is Quixotic Paperie 


Please pop on over to the main challenge blog for all the details and for more great inspiration!

That's it from me. I have a very early hair appointment today!  

Have a great weekend!

Its all New at Sweet Stampin'

Good Morning Everyone

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2015 brings you all health and happiness.  
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog over the last year.  I hope you will stay with me in 2015!

I am here today for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.  The challenge theme this week is:

"New" 
(stash, baby, house, job, etc, etc)

My card is using some new stash:




This is my new stamp from Stamping Bella called Uptown Girl Fiona loves Flowers.  I knew that I wanted to keep the card simple with the stamp as the main focus.  So I coloured with copics and just layered up with some bazzill cardstock.  I have glittered parts of the flowers and added some small butterflies.  That's it!  

Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid Crafts


And they are offering a fabulous £10 voucher to spend in the store. 

Please pop on over to the main challenge blog for all the details and for some more gorgeous inspiration from the team!  

That's all from me today.  Enjoy the day and I will see you soon!

Delia - Sugar Nellie

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.  It flew by so quickly.  I am now stuffed with turkey and chocolates!!  Diet starts on 5 January! 

I made a card before Christmas using one of my favourite images from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits.  She is called Delia and here she is:





Close Up

I kept the card simple, I like this style a lot at the moment.  The sentiment is from Stamping Bella, Faith the Fairy Uptown Girl.  I have used this sentiment many times and I really love it.  I have coloured Delia with copics and just mounted on some bazzill cs and added some glamour dust and pearls.  

I would like to enter my card into the Sugar Bowl challenge this month. 

I hope you have a lovely rest of the day.  I am off work next week so am looking forward to a relaxed few days.  I am thinking of hitting the sales tomorrow!  I will see how I feel in the morning!!

Speak soon

Merry Christmas!

Happy Christmas Eve!

I just wanted to post once more before Christmas to share a couple of cards which are a bit different.  As some of you know I cross stitch as well and I made some small Christmas robins, which I stitched whilst I was away on holiday!  I made up some cards and here they are:








Aren't they fun!  I used papers from LOTV - Twas the Night Nitwit Collections and some Bazzill CS.  I just added some pearls and the sentiment is from LOTV Christmas Wishes Set 75.  I hope they like these, something a bit different!

Well that's all from me today.  
I just want to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.  I hope you have a wonderful day. 

Lots of Love and Hugs

Christmas Card with Drawer

Hi Everyone!

Just one more day and I am officially on leave until 5 January!  Can't wait!  I took part in the Kit and Clowder Facebook Page Christmas Card Swap this year.  I know that my recipient has safely received her card so I thought I would share it here with you. 




Close Up

Of course she is La La Land and she is called Christmas Ornament Marci.  I coloured with copics and used papers from LOTV called Snow Princess.  As you can see I made a drawer box thingy!  Inside the drawer are some chocolates which I think arrived safely!  I added some glamour dust and glossy accents to the ornament and sprinkled on some frantage, which I am still trying to get used to.  The snowflake dies are also from La La Land.  

I hope you like her!  Have a couple more Christmas cards to share so hopefully I will get time this week to do that.  Have a great day!

Love and Hugs

Sweet Stampin' - Black & White and Splash of One Colour!

Hi Everyone!

I really need to think of some witty titles for my posts!!  I hope you are all well and ready for the big day next week.  I am relatively organised so am feeling fairly relaxed!!  

I am here today with my card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  The theme is:

"Black & White with Splash of One Colour"

I decided to go with purple as my one other colour.  Here is my card:




I am not particularly happy with the colouring of this but I do like the image which is Stamping Bella - Uptown Girl - Serena Has A Sign. I layered up some black and purple bazzill card, and matted the white card which is cut with Lil Inker Stitched Square die.  I added some glamour dust and pearls.  The small butterfly punch is from Tonic.

A little box!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all ok!  I am off out getting the Christmas Tree today, hopefully then I will start to feel a bit more festive!!  

Shock, horror, I am not here today with a DT make!  I bought a kit from Rosemary Merry when I was on the craft retreat back in November.  I had fun playing with it a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share it today.  Its so lovely in real life!  (sorry about all the photos!)





It started off as just a brown box.  I painted the box with a blue acrylic paint and then covered with papers from Kaisercraft - Storyteller Collection.  I inked the edges with brown chestnut roan chalk ink pad.  I inked the edges of the flowers as well and just assembled these on top with the netting and berries.  Then to finish off added the library draw handle to the front.  As I said it comes a kit form from Rosemary Merry's store - Crab Apple Crafts.  I love it!  

I hope you have a great Saturday and weekend!  Not long now til the big day!!  

Love and Hugs

December Birthday - Moving Along With The Times

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick one from me today.  Busy old week.  We have a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and this week our Kelly has challenged us to:

"December Birthday"

I wasn't quite sure what to do for this but in the end thought I would go for wintery colours!  Here is my card:




I didn't have time to colour up an image this week so I used one of the fabulous pre-coloured toppers from the Hobby House.  This is from the Wee Stamps sheet called Hopeful.  I teamed her up with some papers from Maja Designs and I think its the Vintage Summer Basics, but they are all mixed up together so am not sure!  I used some shabby blue frantage around the image (still trying to get used to this!)  I also added some glossy accents to the blue with a sprinkle of glamour dust.  The flower is also from the Hobby House and is gorgeous!  

I hope you can pop on over to the challenge blog to see all the wonderful projects from the DT team and I hope you can join us this week!

Ok, that's it from me.  Have a wonderful day!

Love and Hugs
