Hello Bird

I am back fighting fit once again and back to blogging, hurrah! I have missed it and missed being my usual crafty self. Last night as some of you may have seen on Instagram/Facebook i was playing with my new Tim Holtz Bird Stamps...i love these funky birds, very angry birds! I got a bit inky & covered in foil too and here is the result...
I wanted to keep it simple but with a splash of colour and am quite pleased how it turned out.  I created the background using my new Spectrum Aqua Pens and water. I added lots of gold foiling and a hello sentiment from Winne & Walter. The birds by Tim Holtz were watercoloured too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...
Lisa B Designs - Inked Backgrounds
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wed - Anything Goes

Hope you are having a weekend and I will catch up with you soon.

Missing In Action

Hello and sorry I have been missing in action for the past few days. I have been suffering from a kidney infection so it kind f knocked me for six for a few days. I am on the mend now though and have been trying to catch up on all my work. I will be posting more of my cards very soon and please do come back later :)

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you have all had a lovely weekend so far. Today I will be crafting after doing some boring old housework! Last night I found some new papers over at Pink Petticoat and wanted to use them right away. It was rather late so it was a super quick clean & simple card...
So the papers are of course from Pink Petticoat. I used my new Die-namics Inside Out Stitched Rectangle STAX and also Pierced Oval STAX. The sentiment is from a new Tim Holtz Stamp Set full of scripty sentiments, love them! I just added some twine and a pearl to finish. It is also all popped up on 3d foam pads for a bit of extra dimension.

I would like to enter the following challenges...
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Use A Die
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goe

Thanks for stopping by, I will be back soon :)

Thank You Teacher

Today I am sharing a card I made a while back for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. This was actually for a teachers thank you card but you could change the sentiment to good luck on your first day of school or anything really!
I can't for the life of me think of which papers exactly I used but I am sure it's Echo Park. The letters are MFT Dienamics By The Letters and the teacher is hand written. The border is Die-namics Boy Meets Girl which I thhink has now been discontinued. I tied some ribbon around the pencil as a cute embellisment. I also added some buttons & a hand drawn border to create a kind of chalkboard.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...

I will be back with more creations soon :)

Geek Chic

It's finally Friday, this week has gone so quick and yet I don't really know what I have managed to get done - not a lot really, so roll on next week & back to normal. Today I am sharing my latest card that I made this afternoon while the girls were crafting away next to me...
I of course had to use my fav colour combo of the moment - Yellow, Grey & Black! I have had these MFT Stamps & Dies kicking around for a while but as usual they got hidden on my desk and I forgot about them! I created the background using a stencil, brush and black ink. The papers are by Kaisercraft. I die cut the Geek Is Chic Glasses from black card and coated them in Sakura 3D Glue for a lovely glossy effect. I also used the matching Geek Is Chic Stamps and added some Doodlebug Enamel Dots to finish. All these products are available from My Mums Craft Shop.

Super Duper

Today I have another clean & simple card to share with you - am loving this style at the moment! This time I used some of my brand new Mama Elephant Stamps, available at My Mums Craft Shop - they are just the cutest stamps ever.
Sorry the photo isn't too great, it is very dark here and I have been trying all day to get a decent picture this was the best I could do unfortunately. So for this card i created the background using my Distress Inks. The stars & borders are by Winnie & Walter Stamps. I stamped up my Tiny Heroes girl, coloured her with Copics & fussy cut her out. The sentiment is also by Mama Elephant and included on the Tiny Heroes Stamp Set.

I will be back soon with more creations.

Thinking Of You

So half term has begun which means chaos in my world!! I actually started out the week by clearing out Jazzy's room, I got another storage unit for her room from Ikea so now it's jam packed full of stuff! I did manage to get a bit of crafty time once she was in bed to create this super simple card.
 For this clean and simple card I used my WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals Stamps & Dies. I love these stamps so much as there is so much you can do with them. I love creating my own little floral arrangements. The background is my Lil Inker Stitched Background Die which I am loving at the moment. I stamped the sentiment in grey ink and popped it onto 3d foam pads.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges...

Thanks for stopping by,
Kitty xx
