Happy Birthday...






 Good morning folks,

           So, it's time for a new challenge over on the Sweet Stampin challenge Blog.

The theme this fortnight is Birthday girls.  I had bought this new stamp a few weeks ago but haven't had the chance to use it....I thought it would be perfect for a girl.

I stamped the image with memento ink and coloured with copics, I have really neglected my copics so it was good getting them back out again.  I added some little splashes, a couple of enamel dots and some glitter to finish off.

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog to check out what the rest of the team have made.

Challenges:
My Time to Craft - mixed colour florals
Krafty Chicks - all occassions
Seize the Birthday - spring florals
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

Happy St.Patrick's Day...

 




Morning stampers,
It's been a wee while since I posted, it's been a bit of a hectic time trying to deal with my dads estate and the anniversary date and the first birthday without him.....and work has been soooo busy too!  I'm nearly there though and hopefully everything will be done and dusted in the next couple of weeks.

My mojo has left me a bit probably just because I haven't done much crafting due to other things I've had to be dealing with which has actually been quite stressful, so I have treated myself to some new stuff....we all love some new stuff.

I have also decided to give my craft room a makeover...well what I've actually decided is to convert my spare room into a bigger craft room to the one I have....watch this space!

So, it's time for a new challenge over on the Sweet Stampin challenge Blog.

The theme this fortnight is St. Patrick's Day or green.  

I decided to go with the St.Patrick's Day theme, this was one of my new stamps I bought.  I stamped it up with a few shades of green and stamped a couple of times.  I sprayed the stamped image with water as I wanted a bit of a fuzzy look but not completely watercoloured looking.  I added some subtle shading around the image.  I added some splashes and a couple of enamel dots to finish.

Hope you like it.

A Big Birthday Wish...

 




Morning folks,

I hope the weather isn't too bad where you are....it's -6 degrees here this morning....bbbbrrrr!

It's time for the mid month challenge over on the Stamping Sensations Challenge blog.

The theme this month is the mood board, and...it's anything goes but remember the stamped element on your card too.




The prize for one lucky winner is below...




Three prizes from AALL and Create, an A4 Butterfly stencil, A5 stamp set and two A6 stamps!  

For my card I used a stencil and inked up different shades of red, I splashed some water to lift some of the colour, once dry I added some red splashes.  I then stamped the silhouette flowers and added the sentiment.  I finished it off with a few enamel dots.

Daily thoughts...



Good morning folks,, it's time for the first challenge of 2024 over on the Stamping Sensations challenge blog.

But first, I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, personally I am glad to see the back of 2023....too many unhappy times, covid and generally unwell...so off to a good start in 2024.  I have a wee holiday booked in March and then a holiday up north to Burghead on the Moray coast to celebrate my big birthday..yes 21 again, i am so looking forward to that...it's the lovliest area for a wee holiday in my opinion, just so calm, peaceful and clean! anyway more on that later...

The theme this month is the mood board...isn't it fab, and...it's anything goes but remember the stamped element on your card too.




The prize for one lucky winner is below...




Three prizes from AALL and Create, an A4 Butterfly stencil, A5 stamp set and two A6 stamps!  You've got to be in it to win it as they say!

For my card I stamped up the layers of the stamp with different colours of dark pink and red ink, I added a few splashes and the sentiment from the same set.  I layered onto coloured card and added a few dots to finish off.

Hope you like it.

Happy Birthday...

 



Morning sweet stampers and Happy New Year!

I have been choked with the cold and been left with an annoying cough but it's getting better thankfully.

It's time for the first challenge of 2024 over on the Sweet Stampin challenge blog.  The theme is "new"...interpret that in which ever way you like but remember to use stamping.

For my card I used a new background stamp, first I coloured up the background with watercolours and once dried I stamped the birthday wording. I added some splashes of white paint and some gems.  I also die cut a candle and the birthday and layered them on the card...you can kind of see from the image below.
