Bed Time Messy

The Cosmic Shimmer background inspired this card. I was playing around with Cosmic Shimmer Mists on black card, loved the way the light 'played' with the Cosmic Shimmers, it looked like the reflections from a light source. This in turn prompted the thought of Messy's candle. I stamped Messy and his Teddy on scrap white card and coloured with Promarkers. A very sweet little card that is sure to raise a smile

English Country Garden

I haven't posted for quite a while, I've felt so poorly I just couldn't be bothered, I am so sorry to have ignored you all for so long. This is a lovely stamp and I can't remember where it is from. I just love it though and all I have done is used some scrap card for the backing card and edged the image background with Pentouch Gold and coloured the image with Promarkers. A very simple card but one I enjoyed making

Ancient Scraps

I loved creating this card. It is once again a U-Mount stamp stamped in distressed ink and the colour bled out with a koi water brush. The paper was then torn and distressed with a distressed ink pad and cut n dry foam. A few little embellishments completed the card.

Bedtime Stories for Little Dogs

A really cute little stamp from Sugar Nellie. I treated the image simply as it speaks for itself. I coloured the image with SURPRISE!!! Promarkers, cut out the image and mounted it on 2 pieces of gingham paper from Joanna Sheen Ltd. I just adore this image and I am finding that it is very easy to get the shadowing on with the Promarkers. I think I am finally getting the hang of it. I really NEED more of these glorious pens though lol

This photo doesn't really do this card justice, it is a mixture of cosmic shimmers, distress ink pads, Glenda Waterworth stamps and heat embossing. I just played, dabbed, stamped and spritzed until I was happy with it. It was such a lot of fun and very messy. I just wish I could remember exactly what I did to it!
Plans for the wedding are now well in hand and I must stop playing and print the invitation inserts. Or else it will be a telephone or e-mail invitation job lol

Rock Hard Fairies

I have made this card for a little girl who becomes a teenager. I decoupaged the Rock Hard Fairy and mounted her on a navy blue card blank. I then created a bubble with acetate onto which I put 2 cobwebs which I cut from the Paper Dolls cartridge on my Cricut. To cover the edges of the acetate bubble I put 2 strips of silver mirror card. I scattered a couple of big scary spiders which came on the decoupage sheet.

Walk Like An Egyptian

The backingpaper and decoupage are from Joanna Sheen's Egyptian Adventures. The paper pieces are from the scraps box. I made the paper damp with a mister, I scrunched it up and dabbed it on a weathered wood distressed ink pad. I then dampened the paper again and rescrunched it and dabbed it in a little bit of cosmic shimmer mist in Ancient Copper. The images are stamped in distressed ink in Soot Black.

Baby Boy Messy

I am having a scraps binge at the moment I stamped Messy onto some white scrap card and coloured the image with Promarkers. I stamped 'BABY' onto a light blue gingham stripe and heat embossed in gold. In the depths of the scrap box I found some lovely white card with an embossed diamond pattern which I used to mat the stamped images onto. This was then matted onto a darker blue gingham. The Messy Rabbit and gingham papers are both from Joanna Sheen Ltd

Scraps Galore

I expect you have already realised that my workroom is in the process of having a massive sort out and tidy up. Consequently my scraps box is bulging at the seams. This is a little card that I put together very simply using scrap card and paper. The bear is from Joanna Sheen ltd and is coloured with Lyra Aqua Colours. Its a card that I have to send frequently telling people I'm sorry, I seem to suffer with very bad 'foot in mouth' and only take my foot out of my mouth to swap it for the other one.

CowBoy and Squaw

Some more lovely stamps from Kars Olliephant range, these little charactors are just so cute and such fun to make into cards. This is just an A6 gatefold card to strips of mirror card from the scraps box. Of course I have coloured them with my much loved Promarkers!!

Scrap Box Special

Today I have been on a mission to use up some of those 'bits' that have been sitting in my scraps box for a long time. A piece of aqua glitter card was put through my cricut and cut using George and Basic Shapes. I then used the aqua Cosmic Shimmer and cut a smaller mat with the Cricut. The heart was just a pink piece of card which I cut with the Cricut using the wedding cartridge. The basic cardstock was a piece of card which I trimmed to make a 5"x5" blank
