LIM Guest DT

Morning, as the title of my post says I am delighted to be appearing over on the Less is More challenge blog today as a guest designer because May has 5 Saturdays in it. I was very honoured when I received the email inviting me and wanted to make a really good card for this challenge as it holds a special place in my heart because it was the very first card making challenge I ever entered.

So on to the card, the theme is "two or Four legs" so I decided to use this little fella who has 2 monster legs! I couldn't find a manufacturer on this red rubber stamp set but I have a funny feeling it is called "Mr Smiles" and was designed by Jane Beljo from Jane's Doodles (sorry if I'm wrong)

I have coloured him with Copics and tried to make him look a little fury.I've also used the colourless blender to added a white line along his horns to make them appear shiny. The sentiment is from a Clearly Besotted set which I've stamped on a MFT banner and attached with staples.

The base of the card has been embossed with a polka-dot embossing folder, I think this adds texture and retail whilst still keeping the card clean and simple- what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your entry in the LIM gallery.

Casual Fridays Challenge #140

Morning, happy Friday and welcome to the last CFC of my DT term, can't believe how fast these last 6 months have flown by! Anyway on to the them, Michelle is asking for CAS cards that use kraft, white and one bright colour. 

For my sample I used the flower dies to cut into some patterned kraft paper, then i snipped into each flower so I could make them a little more 3D. After I'd stuck the flower down I added some twine and a pink button.

As you can see the single bright colour I've decided to use is a hot pink and I've used this to stamp the sentiment.

Wishing you a bright sunshine day!

Hello, happy Thursday, I hope you're having a nice week. I can't believe that my week off is nearly over already. I do still have a few things to look forward to, tomorrow we are going to meet up with my SiL and our little nephew and on Saturday we've got tickets for a big craft fair at Bolton.

Anyway, for today here is a little card I made using a CAS-ual Friday stamp set. I actually made this card for a LIM challenge from a few weeks ago but I didn't think it was very good (or very CAS).

As you can see I actually used the generation stamping technique to make a reflection of the sunset on to of a blue inked panel that was made by masking off the lower half of the card.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today, I hope you can come back tomorrow as I have a card tomorrow for the new CASual Friday challenge.

Until then ta-ta,

Thank You Teacher shaker card!

Good afternoon, it's still half term for me so I ahem found some time to spend in my craft room. It's all that time of the year when I need to start making thank you cards for all the people in my department and here's the first one of the year.

I've used the new Cleary Besotted thanks shaker die along with some Cleary Besotted stamps and a piece of Doodlebug Designs patterned paper. 

I have a few more projects lined up to post over the next few days including a little GDT spot so I do hope you can pop by again.

Teenage Birthday

Evening, I hope you're well. I'm sorry I haven't been around much but as per usual life has just been getting in the way. Anyway, it's half term this week so hopefully I'll have time to craft and that I'll be feeling a bit more like creating. 

And to get things started I have a card that I was asked to make a birthday card for a 15year old girl- quite a bit of a challenge! I have decided to make a few different cards and this is the first of them. I've tried to go for a bit of a graffiti look........ to achieve this I've used some inking/shading around the edges and under some pf the elements.

I've used the glasses from the Paper Smooches Incognito stamp set to create the background as well as the additional embellishments. The sentiment is made up from some Papersmooches words as well as the "birthday" from Clearly Besotted. 

To finish the card I added lots of pink and black sequins as well as loads of glossy accents on the lenses of the larger glasses.

A not so CAS card for me but hopefully it may be what the lady who commissioned the card is looking for. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I do REALLY hope to be back soon, maybe even tomorrow?!?!?

Until then, take care for now

ATCAS- Animal

Morning, happy Saturday and it's time for another challenge over at ATCAS where our code word is "Animal".


Prize is 12.50 euro (1 stamp set)  to our winner.

For my card I've used this lovely image from Stampin up. I've simply coloured it with markers and then I cut it out using a pierced square die from MFT. The image was then mounted onto the base card which has been covered with a MFT  linen texture background stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you get time to play along with us this week,
