Purple Onion Designs- Sunny Blooms and Charlotte

Hi all!

How are you doing? Today I have a teeny mouse to share from Purple Onion Designs...

I stamped out Charlotte mouse and masked her out whilst I stamped Sunny Blooms on top. I coloured with Distress Markers. I cut out an aperture in this gorgeous PTI paper (I can't remember what die I used-sorry!) I then raised up the DP panel on 3d foam pads and adhered over the image once I'd adhered that to the card base. Finally added some sequins.

Here's your close up. Awwwwww!

Supplies: Stamps (Purple Onion Designs); Distress Inks; Papers (PTI); Dies (?); Sequins (Doodlebug)

Avery Elle- Love Puffin!

Hey everyone!

Happy Saturday! Today I have a very simple but very cute (I think!) Avery Elle card to share with you...

I used the very adorable Avery Elle Love Puffin set and coloured with copics and fussy cut. I created a front panel and die cut a large heart using Nesties. On the front of the card blank I stamped out the Stampin Up Watercolour Wash background stamp so that it would show beneath the heart aperture. I adhered the panel to the card base front using 3d foam pads and stuck the puffins and shells down. I then stamped the birds through the aperture using a small acrylic block. I then stamped and embossed the accompanying sentiment. Finally added some raindrops.

As simple as it is, I really like this card! Is it OK to say that?!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lili Of The Valley- Tea Party!

Helloooo my fine friends!

Hope you're all great! Have you seen Kathy Rac is doing another 30 Day Colouring Challenge soon. I haven't participated before as I never had enough time but I have a bit more now my little one has increased his hours at Kindergarten so I'm hoping to join in this time. I've been stamping out some images in readiness! Are you joining in?

Today I have a sweet image from LOTV to share called Tea Party....

This card is for a friend who really loves her tea!! I coloured the image with Distress Markers. I distressed these gorgeous Bo Bunny papers and arranged in a layout. I added some lace and flowers. This sentiment is by Waltzing Mouse (sadly, they are no longer in existence).

How adorable!! Just love these older style LOTV stamps. Such a shame that they seem to be getting rid of so many of them.

Supplies: Stamps (LOTV, Waltzing Mouse); Distress Markers; Papers (Bo Bunny); Flowers (Prima); Paper Distresser; Dies (Nesties); Lace

MFT- Pure Innocence Bookworm!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all well and getting in a good amount of crafty time! 

Today I have another MFT Pure Innocence to share with you as I thought I'd enter their weekly Wednesday Sketch Challenge again. This time it's Bookworm...

I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her cute little outfit. I used the coordinating MFT A2 Rectangle Stax Dienamics to cut the lilac base and patterned paper bases. I used the Flag Stax to cut the flag shape and for the circle the Stitched Circle Stax. I used a little sentiment dienamic for the sentiment and added the cute bookworm. I raised up the Pure Innocence on 3d pads.

How cute is she? I love her expression! And the cute bookworm!

Supplies: Stamps (MFT); Copics; Papers (MME); Dies (MFT)

MFT- Spring Friends


Hope you're all well! Today I have a card to share with you featuring MFT's Spring Friends...

Such a cute set- I love the extras of the bunny, butterfly and chickie! I coloured with copics and paper pieced her top. I decided to enter the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge so used their sketch as the basis for the layout of the card. Papers are by MME. I cut the pocket shape using my guillotine. The sentiment die is by MFT, the scalloped one is SSS Scallop Stitches Wafer. I raised up the animals on 3d pads and added Stickles to the butterfly.

Soooo cute!!

Gorjuss Art Journal page

Hey everyone!

Hope you're all well! Today I have another art journal page to share with you. If you've never done any art journalling before, I heartily recommend it! It's very freeing compared to card making and you get just get down and get inky and dirty!!!

This page has been created using the Gorjuss stamp The Dreamer coloured with copics...

I started off by colouring the image with copics. I added some highlights with white gel pen and then I fussy cut her leaving no white space. The page was created by sticking down sheet music, Tim Holtz tissue paper, some vintage pattern paper and masking tape and covered with white gesso. I then used Lindy's Sprays (C'est La Vie Cerise, Danny Zuko's Denim, Pop Rock Purple) and a water spray. I then added some splashes of Liquitex Titanium White. I added some gelatos (fig, raspberry, coconut, metallic mint) smudged with my finger. I stamped the dandelions from the Autumn Leaves Fine and Dandy set and then added white gel pen to them. I stamped out the cloud part of the Gorjuss stamp separately on MME patterned paper and drew freehand the rest of the clouds- I coloured with the before mentioned gelatos. I then stuck down the Gorjuss image, the clouds and a strip of matching paper which I thought was quite rainbow like. I then went round and highlighted each element using a black uniball pen. Finally added some word/sentiment stickers.

Here's your close up! Such a beautiful image!
