Big Tag Time~

Hi Girls~

Thought you might be interested to see what I have been upto~
I have been getting "Inky"...really enjoyed making this Big Tag.

I have used stamps from Dylusions, Oh Dyan's stamps really are wonderful and sooo Quirky!!
This lady is from the "Dependable Dotty" collection, she is actually, quite big, about 7' from top to bottom, so a Big Tag was needed!

I distressed the edges of the tag and then mounted it on Kraft card. I coloured the background with Dylusion Ink Sprays in various colours, then put gesso on to the tag through a chicken wire type stencil before drying and then stamping Dyan's leaves, sentiment, and other "Dotty" stamps. Finishing off with a bit of ribbon at the top and then near the bottom through a couple of holes made with my cropodile to add detail.

ATC folder~

Hello Girls~


I have an ATC holder to show you.
I have followed -roughly- the instructions in Novembers "Craft Stamper" magazine, It's one of Kate Crane's projects and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it.
I did not have the stamps Kate used, but I have improvised and used several of my own.

I have used some Tim Holtz inks to colour the backgrounds, then I stamped a Darkroom door background stamp and while that was wet I covered it with Perfect Pearls and then sprayed water over the top. This made a "splash" look which I then dried before I stamped my other stamps on top.
I have used some Dylusion stamps including the sentiments and a few from Prima, plus a Free Star stamp from the cover of the Craft Stamper magazine.

Sweet Stampin' Tag--Halloween!

Hello Ladies,
Hope you are all well.

Today's another Challenge day over at Sweet Stampin' and appropriately for this time of year it's "Halloween"!  That should be an easy one right?

 So here is what I came up with for this one.
A "Giant Tag".  I bought these gorgeous Halloween papers a few weeks ago from Samuel Taylor's, they are from Echo Park, Chillingsworth Collection, and they do quite a few different sheets.

The Skull stamps are from Dylusions, I have only had these a few day's so was dying to use them, don't they look "Spooky"?
The Skull charm I have had for ages, don't know where I got it.

Shopping is Fun~

Hi girls~

Here I am again with a card with a Mo Manning image on. Ooo i just love Mo's super images, and this one reminds me of my friend Angie and I when we are out shopping (mind you we do usually have a few more bags than this!!, Eh.....well alot more actually!!)

That's Me on the right and Angie on the left, that's 'cos I have brown hair and Ang is a Blondie!

I have used a Paper Mania Kraft card base and papers from Kaisercraft Peachy Keen collection, very Autumnal. In fact the aqua and brown leaf paper is flocked and feels all soft and velvety.

The Sentiment little ticket is a LOTV, and I have added a few hobbyhouse pearls and a wooden leaf. The corner punch is one of my favourite MS sets and is called pansy.

Teddy and Robin~

Hello Girls,
Hope I find you all well and you are not too cold where you are!
A big thank you for all the lovely comments you leave for me, they mean such alot.

Today's card is another Christmas card, I am making a few each day, so hopefully I will not be caught out needing more at the last minute.
This card is made using one of the new LOTV little masterpieces, oh this has got to be one of my favourite's, I just love the way the little Teddy is looking at the robin who's just flown down and sat on his foot. So Sweet!
I have used some of my new papers from Echo Parks This & That Collection, all very nice Christmas Papers.
The pearls are Hobbyhouse, Snowflake flower is Nellie Snellen and the border edge is a MS.

Jingle Bells~

Hello Girls~

I have had a nice day "Crafting" (I was supposed to be cleaning up, but Oh heck I forgot!!) LOL
Actually I did do a bit in the morning, and I must admit what used to take me all day, takes me only a couple of hours if I get my skates on, well with the lure of Crafting, you can see what I mean can't you!!

I have just bought this gorgeous Mo Manning "Jingle Bells" stamp and it is my New Favourite, it just makes me smile (and that can't be a bad thing!)
I love Mo's images and will make lots of cards with this image, I know already who would just love this image on their card.

I have used a cut up Kraft card for the base, and a bit of leftover gold and red paper, I have cut a star frame from a set of dies. The lovely sentiment is part of the stamp set, but the surround is from a new set I have just bought from LOTV, isn't it cute? there are loads of different shapes and sizes on the sheet.

Spooky or What!!

Hi Ladies~

I have had a busy day today, been making lots of Craft Goodies to sell at a local Craft Fair tomorrow morning.
I have made several items which I will show you at a later date.
I also made these little Halloween Bags of Sweets, so thought I could show you them. Hope they are "Spooky" enough for you!

I have used a little cello bag full of Jelly Sweets, and cut a top for the bags from my Go Create Die, I then used some of my New Echo Park Chillingsworth Papers to decorate. The Skulls are from a Stamp Set of Dylusion stamps.

Wall Plaques for my Sale~

Hello Girls~
Hope I find you all well.
I am busy making lots of items for a Craft Sale on Sunday. I have been making Christmas Cards, Wooden Houses, Door Hangers and some Wall Plaques, and it's a couple of them I have to show you today. Hope you like them. I am hoping to get a few orders (like last time) for the Wall Plaques with a child's name on, instead of the "Baby's Room" I have done on these. 


I will be back later to post another project.

Sweet Stampin' Card~

Hello Girls, 
As it's Saturday it's Challenge time over at Sweet Stampin' and this week it's the theme "Through the Window". Our Sponsors this week are Sew Sweet.
I am glad to report I am feeling so much better, and the chest Xray I had was clear. Although I am still doing a little bit of coughing, it is nowhere near as bad as it was, and I feel so much better in myself, thank you for all your Best Wishes.
I am having some nice Retail Therapy today. My friend Angie and I are at the fantastic Samuel Taylors Shop, we are joining in their workshop all day, so cannot wait to show you what we made.
As we are then only 15 minutes drive from Harrogate Papercraft Show, it would be rude not to visit there aswell wouldn't it?   
I have had yet more problems with loading photo's to Blogger, however as you can see it has eventually worked. I managed to pop the photo on Picasa and it loaded first time. So fingers crossed it will work as quick for the next post!! 
I have used this Crafty Individuals "London" quad square stamp and although you cannot properly see, I have cut a window in my card and popped the image behind it on foam pads. I have chosen to mock stitch round the edges, and have added a piece of ribbon from my stash and added a few Hobbyhouse pearls.
I did not want to colour the image, so kept it all Monochrome.

Modern Landscape

Hello Ladies

Hope I find you all well.

I have a New Love, it's this Modern Landscape die from Memory Box, Ooo I love it, so different.
I have a Christmas Card to show you using it. I like all my layered up, embellishment covered cards, but I also like the minimalist look for others too, so this die certainly covers that!

Hope you like it. I have also done the same card but in greens.
I have used the Memory Box Modern Landscape Die
A Swiss Dot Sizzix folder
Hobbyhouse Pearl
I am not sure what make this Sentiment Stamp is, I have had it ages and have no packaging for it.
On the edges of the white paper I have added Stardust stickles to look like snowfall.
