LOTV Sparkly Ballerina

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. Here I am with a new card made with my lovely new release LOTV Ballerina stamp that I adore!
I stamped her in Memento and coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers plus added sparkle to the skirt and stars using Sakura stardust pen.
I cut round her wit a circle nestie, then matted her on a nestie cut scalloped circle out of pink glitter card, I also die cut a butterfly with a spellbinders butterfly die out of this cardstock too.
I used Prima Melody paper, used one sheet because its so gorgeous and busy I wanted to show off its full effect and to keep the sentiment printed on the paper on show 'A friend is someone who knows the song of your heart and can sing it back to you when you've forgotten the words'.
I placed my Ballerina in the middle of the sheet which was blank, then used the patterned slither I cut to make it fit onto the 6x6 card with a tiny slither of white all round on the bottom of the sheet as a raised border. I…

OSAAT Digi or Dont

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) This is a late post as I have been very poorly with Shingles, and only just able to get online, hoping I am on the mend now! This is for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge which ends later today-you have around four hours to enter if you would like to have a go!
For this project I chose Ikes 'Thatch Cottage' from Stitchy Bear's Digi store. I coloured this with promarkers and flexmarkers, then cut round it with a nestie shape, which I then trimmed so only the bottom of the image was shaped, I then did the same with papers from Bo Bunny 'Forever Fall' collection as my mat, then used complimenting papers from this range for the rest of the card. I then added American crafts polka dot ribbon, and mixed buttons.

Sarah Hurley Challenge: Die Cuts

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Sorry my blog has been quiet recently-I have been very poorly with Shingles and unable to do anything! Hopefully I am starting to be on the mend :-)
This project is late because I was too poorly to blog but you still have a week to enter so rush over to Sarah Hurley Challenge because we have a fabulous prize from Handy Hippo-a Sizzix die for easter :-)
For this project I used Sarah Hurley 'Wonderland' CD for images and backing papers, Tim Holtz Tattered florals die, Spellbinders butterfly dies, Glitter card, Memory box butterfly border die, Gold ribbon, Distress inks, and buttons.
I started by cutting a large coredinations base with a Grand nesties die, then cut two smaller panels of backing papers with the same set of dies. I inked the edges of these and placed them in opposite corners.
I then cut flowers from the backing papers and scrunched them, then inked them with Distress inks and used old buttons as their centres, then I placed…

OSAAT With Love

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a card for One Stitch at a Time, and our theme this week is 'With Love'.
I chose the fabulous Hot air balloon digi by April and I printed this directly onto Echo Park paper then cut round it-a technique I hadnt tried before but I was very impressed with.
I then used coordinating border paper to create my background with strips of paper, starting with flowers along the bottom, then lined with a scalloped edge, then a cloudy sky. I cut a heart out of coordinating paper too and added this on my hot air balloon, then drew over where the lines of the balloon were below. To this I added a heart button. I added a greeting from the papers, then finally added three Papermania Born to Shop buttons.

A Valentines for someone special

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a Valentines for someone special :-)
I got these fantastic unmounted stamps on ebay-in the entire alphabet and I thought they were perfect for a CAS valentines greeting! :-)
I coloured the letters with Promarkers, then cut round the tile, then mounted on red cardstock. I then placed them across the centre of the card. Next I added two panels of red flocked cardstock I have had laying about for ages to finish the card off. I am actually very pleased with how it came off-CAS is not usually my style!

Whiff of Joy Vintage Wedding

Good evening everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a card I made to celebrate a friends daughters wedding-and their theme is Vintage wedding so I wanted to make a really special card that would fit well.
I used a Whiff of Joy image stamped with Memento and coloured with Promarkers, Bo Bunny Timepiece paper, Flocked cardstock, Glitter card, Lace, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, and card candy.
I made a base of Roman Numeral paper from Bo Bunny-as they will be displaying Roman numerals on the wedding tables so thought this was perfect. I then added Flocked card border, I aged some White lace with Tea dye distress ink and placed this as another border, then lastly cut some glitter card with a memory box die and placed this at the bottom. I then placed the image on foam pads so it was slightly 3D. I added a large wild orchid crafts rose and two little ones in cream in the corner, then added a punched glitter card butterfly made with a Papermania punch in the opposite corner. Lastly I ad…

Sarah Hurley Challenge: Love is all Around Canvas!

Good Evening everyone-hope you are well! :-) Here I am with my project for our challenge this fortnight at Sarah Hurley Challenge, our theme being 'Love is all Around'. I was really inspired by this theme and wanted to make something really different so I made a Flying Heart Canvas.
For this project I used a bare canvas, Sarah Hurley papers from her Wonderland CD printed onto 200gsm card, Bone folder, Ruler, Aleens Tacky Glue and my Cricut. I started by painting my canvas in red acrylic paint. Then I cut a whole page of little hearts with my Cricut out of the patterened card.
I then folded each little heart in half using my ruler and bone folder so the hearts looked like they were little Butterflies flying. Next I made a larger heart pattern with the little hearts on my canvas and glued them with Aleens tacky glue.
I hope you like it-I have been lucky enough to have this project feature on a couple of Valentines Treasury lists on Etsy as it is available on my Etsy-the link is …
