W Plus 9- Friends For All Seasons Spring!

Hey my crafting peeps!

Hope you're all well. Today I have a CAS card to share with you featuring Plus 9's Friends For All Seasons Spring...

I stamped out the cute little panda holding the sign and stamped the HB2U sentiment onto the sign. I then coloured with copics. I went over the black parts of ink with copics just to make it really dark and then added white gel pen on the eyes. I created a simple background sponging some distress ink through the MFT Gridlines stencil and then overstamped some ink blots using the MFT Distressed Patterns stamp set. I raised the panda up on 3d foam pads and adhered to the card blank. Finally I stamped out a label sentiment from Altenew and adhered.

Thanks for stopping by today! x

Supplies: Stamps (WPlus 9, Altenew, MFT); Copics; Stencil (MFT); Distress Ink; White gel pen

Art Journal Page "With Brave Wings She Flies" Featuring Stamping Bella's Until Olive

Hi everyone!!!

Hope you're all good. 

Today's share is an art journal page I made a while ago but haven't had time to share. I SO need to do more art journalling. I really LOVE it!! If you haven't had a go before, I urge you to do so, it's so much fun! So freeing and messy!!

This journal page features another one of Stamping Bella's Danielle Donaldson Collection called Until Olive. When this collection first came out, I absolutely loved it but was so nervous about using it so I only got four of them. Crazy or what??!! So it's my absolute mission to collect the rest. They are my perfect stamp for journalling and you can mix and match them with other stamps from your collection like I've done here.

First of all I coloured Olive with copics and added some white gel pen for interest.  I also stamped Dina Wakeley's Scribbly Wings on book paper and coloured with white gel pen and gold Kirarina Wink pen. I then cut both images out.

To make the page I first glued together 2 pages from my old book. I then glued some tissue paper and old book paper to my page and added some masking tape from interest. I then covered the whole page in white gesso. I then took the MFT Heart Stencil and spread some texture paste across it and let it dry. I then sprayed some Lindy's Sprays (let me know if you want to know the colours) with a water spray and let the colours do their own thing. I then added some Gelatos across the page and on the stencilled areas. When dry, I flicked Liquitex White and Picket Fence Distress Spray across the page. 

I then stuck the images to the page using matte gel. I then used a black pencil and black Uniball pen to add doodling and interest to make the image and stencilled areas pop. I finally finished with a few Tim Holtz stickers.

Here's your close up!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I know this is a bit different to my usual cardmaking but I'm hoping you like it as much as I do. See you again soon! xxx

Supplies for the image: Stamps (Stamping Bella, Dina Wakeley); Copics; White gel pen; Gold Spica pen

Supplies for the page: Book paper; tissue paper; masking tape; Gesso; Lindy's Sprays; Liquitex; Tim Holtz Distress Stain; MFT Hearts Stencil; Texture Paste; Gelatos; Liquitex Matte Gel; Black Uniball pen; Pencil; Tim Holtz Stickers

Purple Onion Designs- Ruby and Forest!

Hi my crafting friends,

Today I have a couple of sweet Purple Onion Designs images to share with you...

This little scene features Ruby and Forest. I first stamped and masked out Ruby and then overstamped with the larger forest stamp set. I coloured with Distress Markers. I then created an aperture in some patterned DP and layered up on 3d foam pads. I cut some background DP and adhered the image to it and then adhered the aperture over the top so that the image showed through. I then attached the whole panel to the front of a card blank and then tied some string around the card blank and added a sentiment from MFT.

Your close up!

Supplies: Stamps (Purple Onion Designs, MFT); Distress Markers; Papers (eek, can't remember!); String (Doodlebug)

Mama Elephant- Pix's Favourites!

Hey everyone!

Hope you're OK! Today I have a sweet card featuring Mama Elephant products to share with you...

I inked up some the images from Pix's Favourites stamp set and coloured with copics (paper piecing one dress). I then die-cut with the matching dies. I then blended some Distress Inks on 3 separate tiny panels. I die-cut 3 mini polaroids using the Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts die. I layered the polaroid over each of the coloured panels with 3d foam pads and then adhered the bunny flush to the frame. I adhered these to the card blank for a CAS card and finally finished with a sentiment from the Labeled Messages stamp set.

Supplies: Stamps (Mama Elephant); Dies (Mama Elephant); Copics; Distress Inks

Stamping Bella- Edna The Everything Fairy!


Hope you're all having a lovely day so far. Today I have a stamp from the Edna collection @ Stamping Bella to share with you. This is Edna The Everything Fairy...

Now I must admit I made a bit of a boo boo with colouring on this image. I coloured the leotard last and unfortunately had a very sticky pen which kind of ruined the image but being resourceful (and lazy), I didn't want to have to start all over again so this is my rescued version. OK, I know it's not perfect but hopefully you will be kind! So I coloured Edna with copics and over stamped the sentiment. I did quite a simple layout with the papers beneath and adhered the image over the top. I added a cute tag by PTI, some gold stars and some Stickles.

See you soon! x

Supplies: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Papers (Echo Park); Dies (PTI); Stickles; Star Sequins

Lili Of The Valley- Little Nurse

Hallo crafty people,

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying some crafty time. Today I have a sweet get well soon image from LOTV to share...

This stamp is called Little Nurse. I have no idea whether this is available as a digi. I'm quite confused by the direction LOTV have been heading- I find it quite sad really. I miss the old LOTV- am I the only one? Anyway, I coloured with Distress Markers. I created a sketch using these ancient Making Memories papers and stamped a LOTV postmark sentiment over the top. I added a sentiment from PTI and a little heart and pearl to finish.

Here's your close up. Such an adorable stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon x

Stamping Bella- Uptownie Curly Clara Needs Your Address

Hi everyone

Hope you're having a lovely day so far. This morning I have a Stamping Bella Uptownie card to share with you. It's Curly Clara Needs Your Address...

I didn't want the address part of this stamp so I carefully masked out the address bubble, actually losing a bit of her hair to ensure none of the bubble was showing and then drew back in any detail that was missing with a copic multiliner. I coloured with copics and added some Kirarina Wink gold pen on her top and then fussy cut. I made a shaker card using this stunning paper from MME and sequins from Lucy's. I die cut "hello" using an MFT Dienamic.

Here's your close up.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon! x
