I coloured him golden for a chnge from my usual bear colours. The paper is Basic Grey nook and pantry. I diecut the image usign a MFT die but also used some of my older dies for a change, Doohickey fence, Memory Box dragonfly and Crafts too butterflies.

It's the second of my craft fairs this afternoon at the local school. I have been told it is well supported so hope they are right as it is the first time I have done this one. Still only 2.5 hours and 1 mile down the road. Yesterday’s fair was brilliant, my best sales so far this year.

More snowflakes

It's those new MFT snowflakes again but this time on patterned paper. I used aqua glitter and white card and used a MFT sentiment die too. Not much more to say about this card really other than how much I love these layering snowflakes.

Today I am at the hospital craft fair, the first of three craft fairs over four days, just the way it worked out.  Good job I have plenty of stock. A very early start as we usually get to the hospital about 7.20 so we can get unloaded and get the car parked well before 8.

A new snowman!


Absolutely fun evening yesterday, the show was hilarious, haven’t laughed so much for a long time. A friend bought me some Christmas stamps for my Birthday and as she know how much I love snowmen one of the sets was a Hero Arts set of snowmen. There are 2 snowmen, 4 hats and 3 sentiments as well as snowflakes. It was so easy to stamp the different elements using my stamping platform. So the snowman, hat, snowflakes and sentiment are all part of the set. Not much colouring as the hat and part of the scarf are already black. I kept it simple adding some doodling, pearl dots and my new MFT diecut snowflakes. The paper is an old LOTV one.

Birthday Bear


A change from Christmas today with another of the cute new LOTV alpha bears launching on Friday.  I added the part word which is another set of stamps launching on the same day. I kept the layout simple on this one making a fun bright card using Copics,  MFT papers, MFT pierced rectangle die and my Fiskars tag punch.

Off to the theatre again tonight with friends. A meal at ASK Italian first then we are going to see Slava's snow show. We saw this several years ago and it was one of the funniest shows we have ever seen. Really hard to describe, a very visual comedy and a very messy theatre by the time everyone leaves,

Deer oh Deer


Now did this card make you smile? These are another new MFT die I couldn't resist. I did resist buying any of the new stamps as I have so many still waiting to be used and so many older stamps I really want to use too. I created a scene using Bo Bunny Altitude papers, various dies, MFT mountains, Lawn Fawn Let it Snow and various trees.  I just added some white dots and tiny red pearls to the deer.

Enjoying the snow


Have you got your copy of the latest Making Cards magazine yet? i am delighted to have three snowman cards in there which I will share with you next month but in the meantime here is a card I made using the free papers and one of the sentiment stamps with this month's edition. These are worth the price of the magazine alone. I love these fun penguin toppers which are part of the free papers. I used a new Elizabeth craft tree die I bought at Peterborough. It is a 5 part die but some of the pieces can also be used as smaller trees as you can see.

Guest designer


The DT at Pink Gem were asked if we would like to be guest designers a The Crafty Friends challenge where Pink Gem are sponsors. The challenge is add a sentiment. I had this card which I made for Papercrafter magazine sitting in my file waiting to blog. These penguins are so cute. I used one of the digi kits which of course are precoloured. I added some fun flock to the hats. The papers are First Edition Merry Little Christmas and I used a icicle and Memory Box stitched snowflake dies.

Well tonight is the first of three theatre trips over the next 10 days. We are going to a high school production of We Will Rock You. It is at one of the Norwich theatres and a friend's youngest daughter is in it. The three girls are are all very talented, singing dancing and acting so this should be good.

Introducing Greg


As if the alphabet and number bears weren't enough cuteness there are 16 more bears being released by Lili of the Valley on 24th November. They will be rubber, digis and precoloured so something for everyone. So let me introduce you to Greg. This image is called just a note. There are also some new sentiments and I have used one on my card. I really like the font being a mix of capitals and lower case. Coloured with Copics of course. I wanted some cloud paper and remembered I still had some of the old LOTV Nitwits up, up and away papers and they were just what I needed. I fussy cut the image, used Lawn Fawn puffy cloud dies and All Occasions bird dies.

White and gold


White on white must be the hardest to photograph but hopefully you can see how pretty this card turned out. I was lucky enough to have a voucher for Dies to Die For as part of my Birthday present from Lynsey and I saved it until the new release from MFT, I love snowflake dies and although I have several just had to buy the layered set. They are my current favourite snowflakes so you will be seeing a lot of them. They can be layered in various ways or used alone of course. I used an embossing folder and white and white glitter card with the dies. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz die and I added just a touch of gold with tiny pearls and some star ribbon I found in Tiger. I don't know if you have Tiger where you live but they sell all kinds of things including stationery and what crafter can resist a stationery shop. You never know what you will find. I also bought some wooden heart tags which I made into Christmas decorations.

Baby hammock


That was a surprise wasn't it, a non Christmas card on my blog today. I like a little change and do need to keep my stock up of other cards too. This must be one of my most used baby stamps. I kept the colours neutral so it can be used for a boy or girl. Coloured of course with Copics, the papers are from The Works, such pretty colours and a bargain at £2.  I added some flowers from Wild Orchid, lace from Crafty Ribbons and coloured a wooden heart with white Wink of Stella

Hubby has an osteopath appointment this morning so I am going into Norwich with him to finish my Christmas shopping for his presents. How is your Christmas shopping going?

Carolsingers


I have been making more Card-io cards. I could play with these all day experimenting with different scenes. I used some of my newest stamps on this one along with some from last year. The branch is an Inkylicious stamp as it is a lot bigger than the Card-io branches I have. I added a little colour behind the houses using small ink pads and a Copic pen on the lamp. I coloured the Christmas tree decorations with glitter pens for more sparkle and used silver acrylic paint on the snow. Last year I used a hill I cut from card but this year I am using the MFT drifts and hills stencil which is great as it has different shaped sides and as it is acrylic the ink can easily be wiped off.

Away in a manger


I made this card for Crafts Beautiful magazine. They wanted a Christmas card for their last Christmas issue of the year so I thought this sweet image from LOTV was most appropriate. I used some lovely Kaisercraft papers. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. Dies are Memory Box star, Lawn Fawn stitched circle, Tim Holtz on the edge star and MFT snow doily.  I added some Viva white pearl dots.

White cottage


Had a great time at Crafting Live, bought lots of MDF to paint and decorate, lots of staples like card blanks and tape and some other lovely things too. Best of all ordered a craft cupboard from Storage 4 Crafts to replace a dresser in my craft room. So excited to have better storage but it will take some time reorganising everything. I have been debating getting one for some time and hubby said I needed it so who am I to argue. I haven't made a white on kraft card for Christmas so far this year so here is the first one I made. I often seem to use Inkylicious and Card-io stamps together and today is another of those times. The Winter Lodge is Inkylicious and the foliage stamps are Card-io. I love using white ink and it is much quicker than heat embossing but gives a similar effect. It would be quite a job to heat emboss the circle as I stamped the foliage a few times. I added some Dovecraft 3D pearl effects in blue and coral.

Footballer


A change from Christmas today with my DT card for the new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge which is buttons and/or ribbon. I used one of the precoloured digis for a change, fussy cutting him and mounting him onto a MFT wonky stitched oval.  I found the football button in my Crafty Ribbons box and remembered I had the football ribbon which I cut into banners. The football paper is from a Forever Friends pad.

We stayed overnight in a Premier Inn at Peterborough as we are going to Crafting Live today and coming home later this afternoon. Looking forward to caching up with some crafting friends and making a few purchases.

Christmas geese


Another Card-io card today this time using the geese from one of the new sets I bought recently. I just love making these cards and they look so effective. I added some red liquid pearl drops for berries on the foliage this time. Not much more to say about this card really.

Friend


I have another inspiration for the Facebook LOTV challenge of something beginning with B and it is another sneak peek of the cute alpha bears launching later this month. As well as the bears there will also be a rubber set of part words to use with the bears. I created this little plaque adding some tiny wooden hearts with clear Wink of Stella for sparkle and some tiny pink flowers.

Snowfall


This card is based on an idea I pinned which I think was a Card-io sample card. They used a large tree stamp but as I don't have one of those and I wanted to make the design my own I used a Inkylicious twiggy branch stamp.  I added some Card-io snowflakes and stamped the Card-io deer. The colouring around the deer was done with Copics and I heat embossed white chunky enamel embossing powder. The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn die with aqua glitter card.  I love the way this turned out and may make a few more similar ones.

Carolsinging Mice


The new issue of Making Cards is in the shops now so I am sharing one of four cards I made for them last month. I used the Carol Singing Mice ultimate kit from Paper Creator and at just £2 for the kit a real bargain. The papers and tag are all part of the kit. I used a MFT fringed scalloped border die which is one of my latest dies and is going to be used a lot. I also used a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

LOTV Sneak peek


I am so excited to bring you a sneak peek of the next launch from LOTV, Alpha bears. Yes a whole alphabet of bears and all as cute as these ones. They will be launched later this month, rubber, digi and precoloured. They will be useful for so many occasions. I am well into Christmas card making so I decided to combine four of them to make this card. Coloured with Copics and teamed with some older Dovecraft papers. I added a Memory Box stocking banner and some stars from Hobbycraft.

We also have a new Facebook LOTV challenge, anything beginning with B, so this is my first DT inspiration card.  I would like to enter this into the card challenge at The Ribbon Girl.

Karen Brown please email me your address so I can post your tickets to you. I can't find any details for you from the comment you left using Google+ so can't post them until you contact me.

Lots of love


This is another of the cards I made for Papercraft Inspirations and I must admit I was really pleased with the way this turned out. The leaves and dies are Stampin' Up and I decided to heat emboss them with white embossing powder. The papers they sent me are Kaisercraft. As you ca imagine I was delighted to have purple papers to use. I added some flowers from Hobbycraft, purple doily and some lace from Crafty Ribbons and baker's twine.  The sentiment is LOTV.

A trip out today to visit a craft fair. It is a venue I have enquired about for next year as they only do 3 a year and it is in a good location. I want to check it out for myself and also see what other people are making,

More deer


We had a great day at the hospital yesterday, really pleased with my sales and my new gifts went down well. This is the first of two Winter cards I made for Papercraft Inspirations magazine using Stampin'Up stamps. I created a scene adding a sunset using small ink pads. The papers are Kaisercraft Letters to Santa. Dies are MFT wonky stitched rectangle, MFT stitched dome stax, Lawn Fawn forest border and IO trees.  The wooden leaves are from Hobbycraft.

Challenges

We are off to a quiz and chips night tonight. Enjoy your weekend.

Star of David



I am delighted to have four cards featured in this month's Papercraft Inspirations magazine. Two are Winter and two are Hanukkah. This card was one of the most challenging I have ever made. Construction isn't my strongest point but luckily there are tutorials on how to fold the card. The biggest challenge was the fact that it was so thick with papers either side of the card and the measurements and folds have to be absolutely accurate in order for the design to work.


This shows the way the card opens and the sentiment hidden inside. The papers and embellishments are Kaisercraft and I just added some flowers from Hobbycraft and typed the sentiment.

It's my day for the hospital shop today so I am hoping my new gifts will sell well.

Christmas door and a giveaway


I have been thinking of making a Christmas door like the fairy doors and when a friend suggested I should make one I decide to give it a go. Is it an Elf Door or a Santa Door? The sentiment is Scrapinec and the snowflakes are from Creative Embellishments which I coloured with white Wink of Stella. The stockings are a Memory Box die and I added a sparkly wooden tree, wooden sleigh coloured with a Copic sparkle pen and some gold pine cones. I found the pine cones last Christmas amongst the decorations and thought I could use those for my crafting. They have sat there for a year and luckily I remembered them as I wanted something to add to the ends of the decoration.

And now for a giveaway. I have 2 sets of 2 tickets for Crafting Live Peterborough to give away courtesy of Jayne at Stamposaurus. I am looking forward to going on the Saturday. If you would like 2 tickets please let me know in your comment and I will draw for them if more than 2 people want them.

Winter


Sometimes I like making a card centred around a large sentiment stamp especially when the papers are as delicious as these Bo Bunny Altitude ones, so good I bought two pads. The sentiment is a new one I bought at Thetford from Inkylicious. I used two ribbons from Crafty Ribbons and the MFT pierced banner die.

Tuesday, 31 October 2017

Wheeeeeeeeee!


Today's cards is another made fro Papercrafter magazine using Ella from Pink Gem. The papers are MFT, dies are  MFT stitched mountains and Frantic Stamper tall pine trees.  Coloured with Copics and a LOV sentiment along with some pearl pen dots.

Christmas delivery


This has to be one of my favourite Christmas cards I have made so far this year. I love these cute LOTV reindeer and I have used my fave papers, Bo Bunny Altitude. I used DI Vintage Phot on the edges and got out my much neglected chunky embossing enamel. I love the effect it gives when heated and you may well be seeing a bit more of it. The lace is from Crafty Ribbons, sentiment from LOTV. I used an old MS large snowflake punch and added some white Wink of Stella to the kraft card along with a heart button and string.

All dressed up


Sometimes I feel an image really needs a clean and simple style to the card.  This All Dressed Up image is from the triple rubber stamp called All Dressed Up! She has been coloured with Copics and I simply added some paper, lace from Crafty Ribbons, Sentiment from LOTV teenage girls and some black enamel dots.

What a star


I am hosting this fortnight's challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and I have chosen ribbon and pearls as the theme. I have used one of the new Pink Gem images, Barclay with star and coloured him with Copics. The papers are Bo Bunny Altitude, love the colours of these. I used a MFT pierced banner die and added some tiny wooden stars coloured with a violet Wink of Stella pen.

Challenges

Is this comfy?


I often look on Ebay for Penny Black stamps and bought this and another golf stamp which will be very useful especially for male cards. The papers are First Edition Blank Canvas. I used a Lawn Fawn stitched circle and MFT wonky stitched rectangle dies.

We have been to yet another concert, this time in Ipswich. We went with friends and went for a Chinese meal in the restaurant next door to the theatre where we saw a 60's show, stayed overnight in a Premier Inn and will coming home this morning after breakfast.

In the forest


I bought some of the new Card-io Christmas stamps a while ago and they have been sitting on my desk waiting to be used. I often make a few cards at a time and I am sharing two with you in my post today. I really love using these stamps and the cards sell well. I kept the circle delicate for this one adding some red liquid pearls and a a little shading with a grey Copic marker.


This one is much bolder with holly and mistletoe and the sunset sky.  I used a new MDT drifts and hills stencil which gives more variety of hills rather than my homemade piece of card with postits on the back.

More gifts


I am always looking for new gift ideas for my stall and thought I would make some of these. I was lucky to find somebody selling 24 wooden blocks in various sizes on Ebay and I won the bid. I painted these ones with Zig Woodcraft pens. The red and purple covered in one coat but the blue and green took a few coats. I was pleased with how well the stamps worked on them.


Here are the Christmas ones. Let it snow was made with white card and a Lawn Fawn die, I used Spray and Sparkle on them all and they look really effective.

I would like to enter these into the U for unlimited, V for vibrant challenge at ABC Christmas.


I made these non Christmas ones and have several more which hubby has painted with Rustoleum chalk paints in cream, pink and lilac for me. They will be for sale on my next outing to the hospital shop on November 3rd.

Meet May


Tomorrow sees the release of twelve new stamps from LOTV. They are Thoroughly Modern Misses and there is one for each month. My favourite is May and here she is. These images really suit clean and simple designs so I coloured her with Copics and used a MFT zigzag die and a Joy bunting die with a paper scrap. The sentiment is also from a new release.

I would like to enter her into the anything goes challenge at The Ribbon Girl.

Well after being away the last two Sundays at concerts it is a day at home today. Depending on the weather we hope to get the front garden tidied and the last of the bulbs planted. I also need to do some housework and of course fit in some crafting later. Looking forward to tonight's episode of The Last Post on BBC1.

Colour drops


I bought the MFT colour drop stamps and dies a while ago and had fun trying different techniques with them. For this one I just used the dies with various co-ordinating paper scraps.  I added a diecut sentiment and job done.  We have some free days now so hope the weather is good and we can get on with the garden as we still have bulbs to plant and lots of plants to cut back.

Peace and Love


I have a few cards which haven't made it to my blog before so I am using a few of those as I haven't made much new to put on here. This is one I made for Making Cards about this time last year when the nativity trio were released by LOTV. I distressed the images using antique linen DI, I love the patterned burlap available from The Range, the ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons and the hearts from Hobbycraft.

Another day in the city today, this time for a dentist appointment, just a check up I hope, and meeting my Mum who wants to buy a new jacket. Oh dear another lunch out still saves cooking 😃.

Vintage teacups


I made this card for an order. I was told the recipient loved flowers and afternoon tea so this is what I cam up with using a precoloured digi from The Paper Shelter. The lace I found in my stash, the butterfly is Prima, flowers from Wild Orchid. I diecut the numbers using Tim Holtz die and the sentiment is a Die-versions corner die.  I also used some cheesecloth and distressed all the edges for a shabby chic look.

We are going into the city today as I have a haircut booked and hubby has an osteopath appointment as he has had some back pains for a few weeks. Lunch and some retail therapy will be included too.

Tons of fun


We have been away for the night for the second Sunday in a row. This time we were at Potters holiday park which is a lot of fun. Lovely food, great entertainment and so many activities to do, fun quizzes etc. We went because of the 60's show Sunday evening which featured tribute bands including The Upbeat Beatles who you may remember we saw a few weeks ago. We went with friends which made it even more enjoyable. We will be off for a walk on the beach this morning and probably a few more activities as although you have to check out by 10am you can stay all day to enjoy yourselves.

So onto my card which is a simple sketch using  the MFT adorable elephant stamp sets. I used some old papers, MFT jumbo stitched banner and chevron dies along with a few enamel dots.

Sold


We had a great day at the hospital on Friday, selling lots of cards and gifts.   People are really starting to think about Christmas and the Christmas decorations sold well. I have three weeks until the next one, Christmas cards sold well and I still need more for us to send so expect to see a lot of Christmas cards on my blog. However today I have a new home card for you.

This is another of the cards I made for Making Cards magazine using the LOTV moving house trio digis. Coloured with Copics, papers are Echo Park and I used Lawn Fawn stitched circle, MFT rolling hills and All Occasions small birds dies. The sentiment is LOTV.

I would like to enter this into the Fall/Autumn challenge at Noor! Design UK.
