Messy playtime

Well today I decided to have a bit of messy time as I don't often play with my inks 
Very much lately. And I got to thinking I do miss messy crafting as I loved going to Lesley Whartons craft classes when Franki had her in the shop.

I used from a very old stash that I never used from Stella crafts art tags which were designed by Kathy Mills.
I used squeezed lemonade & spiced marmalade distress inks by Tim Holtz. 

The stamps used were called a little bit scenic silhouette stamp set from Sheena Douglas which was free in the quick cards magazine a few months back.
I stamped the images from black memento ink.
I got feathery ribbon from an old stash and I stamped a dragonfly image and put it in an ephinany tool.
It's not bad for a first attempt in ages.

Hope you all have a lovely day xx

Baby cards


I visited Franki's shop and Dawn from Dusk till Dawn was doing a card class that day, so I asked if Icould take  bits home to make my cards.
The card base is 6x6 pearlised easel card I matted and layered it with silver mirri card and used century pearlised card and used the embossing folder which came free with the cut and emboss machine. Used a paper doily and cut out two die cuts from the die'sire stamping frame added the pram using foam pads and used blue and pink gems to the relevant card. So simple and effective x

And I used black card got it from the black card queen Lynda Chapman. Ribbons and gems come from my old stash.

100th birthday card for Winnie

Hi all 

A crafty friend of mine tagged me into a post BBC Radio Sheffield was making a request for a dear old lady who is coming up 100 years old on May 31st she does not have any family and wanted her birthday extra special. 
So I got my Pollyanna Pickering's world wildlife dvd rom which is available from www.creativecraftingworld.co.uk 

I wanted to make an easel card and also a normal card which had an insert inside, and I decided to make this. 
I used A3 pearlised card cut down to make a 6x6 card
Kraft card for matting
Decoupage, backing paper, insert sentiment and ribbon strip is from the dvd rom
I coloured in clear gems with my brown spectrum noir pen
100 today numbers and word are from tattered lace
The doily is from crafter's companion die'sire range. 
I am hoping she has a good birthday.
