Party Bunnies

I m loving spending some extra time with my family over the holidays so apologies my blog is being neglected at the moment. I will be back on track in January but will try and post when I get a moment - you know how it is - chaos at Christmas! I can barely even get to my desk for all the presents! Anyway today I am sharing and bright colourful shaker card that was made using Mama Elephant Stamps featured in Making Cards Magazine...
For this card I used Mama Elephant Party Animals Stamps. I coloured them Copics and cut them out. I used a MFT Sunray Stencil to create the background and brushed a little Distress Ink through the stencil to create a gentle blend. I die cut green card using MFT Grassy Edges Die then die cut white card using MFT Stitched Cloud Edges Die. I added some acetate onto a pink frame, added the sequins and assembled it all together. The sentiment is Lawn Fawn Wavy Banner Sentiments and the matching die.

Nova Pen Review

I was sent these pens to test and review from Trimcraft. They are the new Nova Design Markers (Alcohol Ink) Pens.
I have used most brands over the years but my go to pens are normally Copics so I was keen to try these new pens. I am actually pretty impressed! I was sent the Pastel Set with 6 different colours. I can't comment on how they blend as such as there isn't colours from the same family. I used Memento Ink and my usual colouring card. The ink didn't bleed at all and was very easy to control within with the stamped lines. The ink came out really smoothly. The photo above shows the Copics at the top and the Nova Pens at the bottom. I did a one layer colour and they coverage was amazing, a nice block colour first time. I went around the centre on the green flower as and you can see you can build up a darker layer with just one pen - a great bonus! All the pens are two ends a fine bullet top and a wide broad end. I like that the pens have a grey line at the top of the pen with the fine end so you know which one is which far more easily. They are lovely to hold in your hand which makes it easier especially if you are using them for a long time.  These are fantastic if you are new to colouring and are wanting to try out alcohol pens without having to spend loads on a pack. All in all I would definitely recommend these pens and I would really love to try other packs with the same colour families so I can try out the blending colours. Well done Trimcraft another fab quality affordable product!

Hummingbirds

Hi all,
Today I am sharing something a bit different. I have loved Anna Marie Designs products for many years and I have quite a collection of her products. I don't often get the chance to play with them as much as I'd like to but this week I set aside some time to create a card with them. This is one heavy embellished card, maybe I should put it into a frame instead...
So I used lots of products on this card mostly from Anna Marie Designs. All the papers and images are from the Garden Bloom Lilac Paper Pad. I cut out some of the flowers and hummingbirds from the background papers so it all coordinated. I also used the Garden Bloom Post Cards & Tags. I distressed all the papers using my Tim Holtz Tonic Distress Tool and dabbed around the edges with some white paint. I used the Anna Marie Designs Bloom Flower Die to create the flowers and I added some pearls to the centres. I added some Nuvo Glitter onto painted mdf letters. I added some lace, ribbon with jewels, white lace material and natural fiber.

Hi all,
Today I am sharing not one but three cards that were made for PaperCrafter Magazine using the new Cascade Dies from Crafters Companion...

I used a XCut Tiny Hearts Embossing Folder on the pink card. I added some ribbons, flowers, sequins, pearls and buttons to decorate.

I then created a patterned background by stamping the accessories multiple times. I die cut a piece of notepad paper and some hexgons and glued them in place. I added the MFT Hello Die and some Nuvo Drops to finish.

My Future Awaits

Hi all,
Today I am sharing a quick card that I made using the Disney Little Mermaid Collection from Create & Craft. I am loving they are doing smaller Disney Kits, certainly more affordable compared to recent years. I love the sketchy look of this one, it's a little different and I LOVE it!
For this card I used The Little Mermaid Paper Kit for the main topper and backing papers. I added a little glitter glue to her tail. I used the Flounder and Accessories Dies & Colourful Creations Pad and added them onto the topper. I tied some twine and added it across the front. I threaded some twine through some natural coloured buttons and added them to the side.

Supplies;
The Little Mermaid - Paper Kit, Dies & Colourful Creations Pad
Stickles Glitter Glue
Natural Buttons
Kraft Card

Best Teacher

I created the backgrond using the MFT English Brick Stencil with some Tea Dye and Walnut Brown Distress Ink. I created the grey floor by blending some Memento London Fog Grey Ink. I made a desk shape out of my brown and light kraft card. I scored some lines onto the dark brown although it doesn't show up very well.
