Jessabelles - new stamp range


Got a new stamp range out over at Squiggle Stamps. They are called Jessabelles, and are a bit emo, a bit steam punk. There is five images at the present. More to come. Lots of fun making these.

Thanks for popping by. Enjoy the holidays.

Here is a card I have made, using an old Gorjuss image. I totally forgot I had it, and when I found it I had to use it. It comes with a chicken next to it, but I chopped that off. :O Coloured her in with Pro Markers.

The DP are from First Edition. Just love the colours. I used my Stampin Up punches for the flowers, scalloped edge and round the sentiment. The sentiment I stamped is also from Stampin Up. (can you tell I have been shopping Stampin Up..hee.hee..) The string I purhcased in a local hardware shop. The bling is from Creative Impressions. Layered this with lots of Kraft paper.

Lots of fun making this. Love making lots of layers. Thanks for coming by. Have a great weekend.

Happy Easter

Sorry absent.Technical problems again, printer wouldn't print, Imac in for service, laptop serviced...but now I have it all going again, and have lots of cards to put up for challenges.

This card I have made for my cousin and her family in Finland.I have used a cute Easter bunny image from Meljen Designs.The DP are from First Edition. For the flowers I used my Boho punch from Stampin Up, the bling is from Creative Impressions. The sentiment is from a freebie from a craft magazine. Layered this with lots of green card stock. Easter holidays are finally here. Even got a lie in past half six today. :)

My top tip for Tip Top Tuesday is this ; most of the time when you buy a top out of a shop they have these very annoying ribbons on the inside of the garment, just for hanging purposes. Normally we just chop them off and bin them. Why not keep them and use them for crafting. I have saved all of mine for every garment I have bought in the last year and have all sorts of colours to match my projects. Great way to get free ribbon (well almost) and recycle. :)

Thanks for popping by, and enjoy the holidays.

Dream Valley 27 - Mother's Day


Sorry, a bit late with my post for this fortnights challenge with Dream Valley challenges. Have two poorly boys at home with flu, so a lot of running around and no spare time.

For this challenge the theme is Mother's Day. Perfect for getting organised for the day. Sponsors of this challenge is One Stop Card Crafts, whom are giving away a $10 gift voucher for the store, and Crafty Ribbons. DT has made some fantastic cards, if you want to have a nosy or join in, you can do that HERE!

For my DT card I used a Tilda image and a Magnolia background, which I coloured in with Pro Markers. The DP are from a 12 " sheet, but I have no idea who it's by because I only had scraps left and used them. I just can't part with scraps, always find something to use them for. The little calendar page is from a mini calendar from Hobby Craft. The pearls, pins, and other embellisments, including ribbon is from my local craft shop. The Mother rub on is from Basic Grey. Lots of fun making this.

Have lots of fun joining in with the challenge and good luck for the prize. I have also included a sneaky peek picture from my new stamp range over at Squiggle Stamps. Coming end of the week! So excited. Thanks for coming by and have a great day.
