3D fish card

Hello, sorry it's taken me all day to post a card but I was tidying the loft this morning, then had a trip to  the tip followed by the post office. AND when I finally go round to make a card I got a little carried away and, well lets just say, it's more fancy than I'd usually do but then I love how it's turned out- just a shame it was terrible to photograph!

SO I've made a little scene using my Papersmooches surf and turf stamps, I cut out all the fishes after colouring them with bright Promarkers (I took my colour inspiration form this weeks Papersmooches Sparks inspiration photo). Next I put them all on the background which was made by blending digress inks and then spritzing with water. I also made some "sand" for the bottom and a similar way.

Then, to give dimension to the project I used Stazon on stamp and other fish, some bubbles and the sentiment onto a piece of acetate- this was then curved over the background image- ta-da, floating fish! 

I also added some glitter glue to give the feeling of bubbles......

So, what do you think? I'd love to know....

WARNING you may need your sunglasses

Hello, I'm back again with another card, but unlike many of my cards this one is really in-your-face-bright! I've taken inspiration from the photo over at Tareerah's blog which is the inspiration for her challenge called Cure for the Monday blues. 

I wanted to go really bright and neon with this card so I turned to a multipack of Sharpies I bought ages ago and some old Papermania stamp sets that i was thinking about putting on eBay, which is why they were on my desk. 

I've smothered the frosting with glitter glue and scattered Doodlebug sequins all around!

I'd love to hear what you think- it's not my usual style! BTW here's the inspiration photo:

Anyway, I'm carrying on with some more craft, I've just received a secret GDT package with some lovely new supplies to work with........

Shadow or ghost stamping

Hello, well despite having lots of time to play I've found this week's Less is more challenge, quite, well, umm..... challenging. I've not really done any shadow stamping before and having tried it out a few time since Saturday when the challenge was launched I just kept making cards that looked like they weren't properly inked or out of focus! Anyway, I decided in the end to go with the same sort of idea as Jen, white shadows on kraft card. 

I've used the lovely MFT Blissful Butterfly stamp set on Neenah dessert storm card (my new, fave kraft card).

Thanks for stopping by- I plan to spend the rest of the day crafting so fingers crossed I might be back later!

April showers.....

Morning, I've used another Jane's Doodle stamp set for my Craft Mojo DT card today. The set is called Raindrops- unfortunately it is out of stock just at the moment but you can sign up for an email alert to let you know when it arrives back in the shop!

Anyway, I've kept things nice and simple for this one, I've just stamped the elements and then fussy cut out the brolly and one of the clouds before sticking them down with foam pads. To give the umbrella a bit of shading I used two similar colours on ink on my stamp at the same time- I added a darker colour just round the edges. To finish the card I added a Wink of stella to make the water look shiny. 

Thanks for stopping by today,

Morning, I made this card to say thanks to my mum and dad who came round on Thursday to help me sort the garden out- thank you!!!

I've used my new, and therefore favourite,  Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers stamp set along with the CB "thanks" die cut word and the tag die. I've tried something a bit different with this card, I stamped the outline image in clear ink and then heat embossed with a clear powder. Then I used my newly purchased Distress Markers (I only got 4 to give them a try) to watercolour the image in. To finish I added some sequins and a piece of plain old string!

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy 70th Birthday!

Hello, here's a card I was asked to make for my friend whose dad was turning 70!!! 

I've used the Uniko Studio "A gift for you" stamps set, along with some die cut Sizzix numbers and a "happy" stamp from Wplus9. Also, as I've used 3 gifts I'm entering this into The Paper Players challenge- use 3 of something. 

I'm also going to enter this into a new to me challenge called Time out challenge where the theme is "Happy birthday was a masculine twist". 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope it's lovely a sunny like it is here wherever you are today.

Party like a boss!

Morning, happy Thursday. Today I'll be mostly spending in the jungle that was formally our back garden. My grre-fingered (and retired) parents are even popping over to give me a hand cleaning all the weeds! But I do have a card to show you and I'm also sharing it over on the Craft Mojo blog too. 

I've used this fab Stamping Bella image called "uptown girls- Victoria and Juliette's night out!" Which I've coloured with pro markers and accented with by Wink of stella brush pen. The bright papers are from Doodlebug and the sentiment is from a Wplus9 set. I love the way this card has turned out- I don't use many "real" characters on my cards but I really like this one! 

Sally over at Craft Mojo has just uploaded the new April release MFT dies, stamps and inks so why not pop over at have a look, I already have and they are fab, soooooo tempting!

Thanks for stopping by,
