Wee Stamps

Good Evening ,I am loving playing with these different stamps.
For this card I used a wee stamp Wee florist  I think she is so
 pretty and was a delight to colour,so I need to get more lol
The colours are not the colours I would normally use ,but I tried to 
match her colours with the papers . These papers were left 
overs from a card I made a while ago ,so I thought
I'd try and use them up as my scraps of left overs are getting out 
of control lol. The flowers are made using my favourite posy patch die 
and the leaves are from Marianne button flower die, I really love these
leaves.I coloured her in using promarkers for her skin and copics
for the rest.The sentiment is from Polka doodles stamp set.
Before I go I would like to say THANK YOU to Christine for helping
me out with my comments settings ,It was much appreciated.
Thank you for looking

Crafty Boots challenge -Food

Good afternoon ,I can't believe how quick the last fortnight
has gone ! The theme for this fortnights challenge is FOOD .
I was in one of my Magnolia phases when I made this project lol

                                           top of box

                                               inside of box

                                                       front view of box
 For the top and base I traced around a back to basic shape (papermania
I think )to get the shape and covered the card with patterned paper ,for the
box itself  I used the ultimate pro to make a basic box.I used kitchen Tilda and
dot muffin stamps coloured with copics. This Tilda has to be one of my
favourite and I really enjoyed colouring her and making this box ( I got a
thing for boxes and everywhere I go I come home with some sort of box )lol

Sarah Kay

What a week this have been ,we've been house bound as
the little one has had a nasty bug ,but thank goodness it's gone now
I haven't had much time for crafting this week so here a card
I made a few weeks ago.
For this card I have used a Sarah Kay stamp -Bernadette admiring
the spring flowers
I have coloured this image with copics and prisma color pencils,the flowers
are made from felt which I cut with spellbinders blossom die,the swirls are
a marianne design die. It's so nice to be using different stamps (as I buy them
and then they never see the light of day)  .

here in South Wales but at least it's dry.
I'm out of my comfort zone with this card , but I wanted to
do something different for a change.

tempted to buy her a few times but was always put off by her wings ( I don't
like things with wings LOL) ,but I'm so glad I gave in this week and bought
her I now think she's beautiful and a pleasure to colour. So not only have I
used a different image but I also used distress inks and aqua markers ,I must
be feeling ill no Tilda and no copics lol. The sakura pens also came out to
add a touch of glitter to her wings

List of what I used
Forest Moss -distress ink- for her dress and wings
walnut stain - distress ink- for her wings ,hair and shading
mocha  - aqua marker for her hair
golden brown -aqua marker-for her hair
peach deco-aqua marker -for her skin

Crafty boots challenge -- Valentines

Welcome to another Crafty boots challenge .This fortnights
theme is Valentines.

 For this card I used Ladybug Tilda ,I so love this Tilda Stamp.I didn't have
any cream and black paper,but I did find this black and white pack, unused
(shameful again) to take the whiteness of it I used antique linen distress ink,
I also didn't have any off white lace or ribbon so I had to improvise with these
I dipped them in a cup of black coffee and then put them straight under some
cold water not for the colour to be too strong.I had some funny looks of the
children when they seen me doing this ,I think they thought I'd finally gone
mad lol.The layers of the card have been machine stitched as I like this effect
and I used copic to colour ,the punch is from ek success (intertwined arches)
and the heart is an x cut die
I really enjoyed making this card.

Tilda with flowing hair and exciting news !!

 I had some exciting news on Monday I was invited
to be a design Team member for Anything goes challenge blog
as you can image I am thrilled and very excited and can't 
wait to start crafting with these lovely ladies .

I made this card sometime last week but just haven't had time to upload it,I 
must pull myself away from my magnolia stamps and do something else ,but 
it so hard as I just think they are lovely images to colour.For this card I used 
Tilda with flowing hair and spring fence ,with this cold weather spring seems 
so far away.I coloured the images in with promarkers and used
 nitwit in the meadow papers which I faux stitched ,posy patch flower 
die, leaves from marianne design button flower die and the
ribbon and gems from my stash.
