Whiff of Joy Wishful



Good afternoon everyone-hope you are well! Here I am with a card I thought would be good for a new year. I used Whiff of Joy image stamped in Memento and coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I used Bazill 6x12 dot cardstock I had bought in the sale which I folded into an easel card shape for a change. I used Fancy Pants papers and greetings I got free in a magazine too-the greeting I mounted onto pink glitter card to make it strong enough to act as an anchor for the base of the easel card. Lastly I added the gorgeous gingham buttons as my embellishments.

Crafty Catz: Things with Wings

OSCC Stitching, Faux or Real


Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) Here I am with my DT card for One Stop Craft Challenge-our theme this week is Stitching, Faux or real.
I started with the limited edition Magnolia Tilda cuddling Koala stamp, which I stamped in Memento and coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I used a nestie oval shape as her surrounding as it fit so well and backed this with a scalloped oval nestie shape in a bright orange.
I decided to use hot colours for this project so I got out my Bo Bunny 'Forever Fall' papers. I also used Gold cardstock, Card Candy, a Gold 'Make a Wish' glitterations greeting and American Crafts polka dot ribbon.
I then went around each paper with a metallic gold pen to create faux stitching patterns.

Magnolia Edwin Distressed Pirate


Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a card using my new Edwin stamp-isn't he so cute?!
For this project I have used Edwin stamped in Memento and coloured in Promarkers and Metallic gel pen for the sword and buckle. My Minds Eye Papers, K&co self adhesive ribbon, Card candy, Distress ink, Cardstock and pirate stamps.
I started by cutting a nestie shape for Edwin, then distressing with Tea dye inks on the edges and then Pirate themed stamps stamped in the same inks.
I distressed the papers with scissors, and tore the cardstock to make a frayed cardstock border, which I added distressed paper border then ribbon. I placed Edwin on the card at an angle and then placed an 'Ahoy! There!' greeting in the bottom corner of the card. Lastly I added Card candy in the top left hand corner.

Hello everyone! Hope you are well :-) Here I am with a project for our theme this fortnight at Sarah Hurley Challenges-All about Me! With all the fuss we make over Christmas for others we thought January was a perfect time to find some time for ourselves!

Good afternoon everyone-hope you are well! Here I am with a card I have made with a gorgeous Saturated Canary digi stamp available here. Shes fabulous! :-) I chose to go with a Sepia tone project for her, to make it feel as warm as her image suggested to me.
I coloured her with Promarkers, cut around the image with a nestie and then coloured the edges with Promarkers to echo the image.
I chose my favourite vintage style papers-Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers, Flocked patterned paper and a script paper from a scrapbooking kit.
I used Craftime glitter card for my butterfly and die cut border, a Dome greeting 'Thinking of you', Card candy and gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts roses. As it is a special project I added genuine vintage lace-it is approximately fifty years old!
