Another gloomy wet day - typical as it's my day off but means staying in and crafting so not all bad!
Today i have a nice summery card to share with you. It features one of the new Kraftin Kimmie Stamps from the Springtime Lulu Set. I do love Lulu i think she is very cute and i have quite a few of these now, so here she is on the swing!
I thought i had better break open my new Echo Park Hello Summer as it's been sat on my desk for a few days and omg i love it and can see why it's so popular! I might need to get two of these as i love it so much - you know just incase i run out of it lol.
I also used my Magnolia Swirl Die, Dienamics Butterflies and Nesties for the ovals. I coloured her with Copics and added touches of Stickles to her dress to make her sparkle!

Something Colourful...

As you know i recently went to Ally Pally to got loads of new goodies.. i also have been a bit naughty and got a few more since - in my defense i have been clearing out my craft stash and selling along the way so it's ok, honest :) Just before we closed the shop today my girlies wanted to see what my new inks sprays were all about and luckily a lovely customer who came in also wanted to see too so i set everything out and did a lil demo and within a few minutes i came up with this.....

I coloured my lovely gardening girl with my copics and used lots of bright funky papers from the latest Fancy Pants Summer Soul paper pad!

Inky Stuff

Sorry i didn't blog yesterday, i had planned to but by the time i went to take a piccy of my card the battery died - typical esp as i didn't have my charger at work, but never mind!!
I have spent the last few days experimenting with inks, sprays and messy stuff and have to say i am soooo loving it and want more - now!! I have two things to show you up first is a lil card that i might turn into a tag...
This was a bit of a experiment as i had not really done anything in this style much before. This is the first thing i have made with my fabby new PanPastels. You may have heard about them but if not they are a new medium to hit the craft industry... they are great for creating backgrounds and you can add colour anywhere to your products. Tehy are very similar to distress inks and can be used to create the same style look. They are so creamy and sooooo easy to use and you are hardly need any to create a lot of colour! I infact only used one colour here and managed to make it blend rather than using several colours if i was using inks! I will def have to get more of these! The stamps are my new Studio 490 set, pretty pricey at around £23 but i LOOOVE them and they stamp perfectly everytime too.

My next card is one i made last night...
I am really pleased how this turned out as it was literally a plain white piece of card to start with!
I created the background with some Ink Sprays and left to dry as i left my heatgun in the shop! I then added lots of bits and pieces from stencils, stamps etc. The flowers are Steampunk Flowers from Creative Expressions, we will be expecting these in the shop soon!

Going Places

Two posts in one day eh? Shocking!!!
You may have seen the latest Kraftin Kimmies KlubKit called Going Places! I had to have it as i just love the fab three images in this set, they are fabulous. Great news too, we will have them available in the UK at My Mums Craft Shop next month in May! So here is a bit of a sneak peak of a card i made over the weekend at our punches demo - i had real limited supplies so this was a bit of a challenge for me, but i like how it turned out :)
So i used the Bike Image & Sentiment and i coloured her with my Copics.
I used the lovely Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane - stunning colour combos of yellow, red & turquiose.
I made the flowers using Tonic Studios Petites 1 Flower and added Clear Dew Drops.
The border was cut with Kraft Card using the Tonic Dotty Border Punch. To finish i added a dash of ribbon & couple of black drew drops!

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

Sweet Stampin' - Girly But No Pink
Craft Your Passion - Die Cuts & Punches
Pile It On - Pop It Up
Wags Whiskers - Anything Goes

Supplies - Kraftin Kimmies Stamps, Cosmo Cricket Papers, Copics, Tonic Studio Punches, SU Ribbon, Kraft Card & Drew Drops.

Bottle Covers

Have you seen the latest Dienamics Die & Stamp Set called Let's Toast? If not you are in for a treat as it's a massooosive set with loads of lovely sentiment and coordinating dies - i love it!
Here i have two lil covers that go over Wine Bottles or any type of drinks bottle to jazz it up a bit and give as gifts. They are very simple as i did these in one of the shop demonstrations recently!
This first one i made to show you can use this set to make gifts for men - as let's face it they are always tricky buggers!!
This last one also features a new A La Mode Stamp - An Apple For Teacher. I made this as i thought it would be fab to use as a teacher gift - i've gotta start thinking up some ideas for these and won't be long before the end of term really!

Hopefully i will be bringing you more ideas using this set very soon, so watch ths space!!
I hopefully will be back later on with a few bits to show you - have been playing with my new stash :)

I went to get lots of different things to the usual stuff i get and omg i had such a ball, i LOVE stash shopping! Got lots of bits to alter, new colouring/distressing stuff, tons of paper and lots to start my Project Life book :) Now i just need to find some time to use it all, anyway here is some piccies :)
Stash Overview (tons!)
Next - lots of scrummy stamps & bit to alter, soo many gorgeous samples on show i had to have them!
Then... tons of fabby papers for my Project Life, smash and cards :D

Something Different...

Gosh has it been that many days since i posted on here? Ooopsy!! Well shows you that time flies if nothing else, lol! This is just a quick post as i hope to show you other bits later on :)
I have seen sooo so many fab ideas on Pinterest and Etsy and one i thought was a fab idea was Decorated Pegs! Who wants boring old wooden pegs when you can have funky ones and it's a great way of using the fabulous Washi Tape! I have quite a few designs now so it's good to put them to use!
This is definately one of my favourite designs - i am so loving that vintage floral and rose look!
I have a few more different ones in the making so hopefully i will have more to show soon!
Now i just need to find some magnetic sheets so i can turn them into fridge magnets to hold letters/memos etc!

Martini's On Me

Ever since i saw this stamp i knew i would have to have it!!! I just LOVE A La Modes at the moment and seem to be building up my collection very quickly - who can blame me? They are ACE! I used lots of new products that we have had delivered over at the shop...
So the stamp is of course A La Modes Martinis On Me, coloured with Copics! I then used my fabby new Dienamics Fishtail Flags Stax & Chevron Stripes (these have sold out already but more on the way just email me to reserve!). The sentiment is stamped onto some mats made using my SU Punches - they seem to have appeared on my desk recently! I papers are WRMK Love Struck and i also added some Black Pearls.

Sadly it got a bit mucky before talking the pic - blooming kids and there choccy fingers but you get tghe general idea of the card eh!?

Fairy Dreams

Over the Easter weekend i have been trying out some new bits and pieces and i rediscovered all my Lavinia Stamps!!! OMG i just love there stamps and the amazing samples they produce, always end up buying loads of these at shows!! I since added a gorgeous sentiment to this card at the bottom and mounted it onto black card and it looks even better! I am so pleased with how this turned out :)
I have just ordered some more scenic stamps so i can create a few different scenes.
Technically i cheated cos i used one of the premade backgrounds - i have tried and tried with my brayer and still can't get the effect right so this makes it so much easier! All the stamps are from Lavinia and stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. I also used some Jones Tones Glitter which looks gorgeous in real life especially with these lovely purple tones!

I'll be back tomorrow with more cards :)
