For a Friends Birthday

Here is a card that I have made for a friends birthday. I haven't used my sugar nellie stamps in ages so thought I would give them an outing!! I cannot remember for the life of me what this one was called as I do not keep their packets.I have coloured the image with my Pro markers and edged the image with Peeled paint distress ink. I have also edged the patterned paper with the same distress ink too.
I am quite pleased with this card as it is out of my PINK comfort zone!!
I hope you are all having a good week. I am having a busy one working and decorating, trying to get time to craft is proving quite difficult! Also with the teachers strike our school is closed today so I have had my youngest at home to amuse aswell.
Be back soon with another card

Here is a view of the inside of the card, I have kept it quite simple.

I lied......

As the title says I lied! in my last post I said I would be back with a project that wouldn't contain a pure innocence stamp, and guess does!This week I purchased 2 more of these little cuties and I just had to make a card with them. The first set is called "Honey Bee" and the second set is called "Ladybug" I coloured the images with my Pro Markers.

The papers I used for this card are from a paper pad from My Minds Eye and it is called "Life of the party" I also used my die-namics dies to cut out the grass and the clouds.

Here is a picture taken at an angle so you can see the dimension of the card

And here is a picture of the inside of the card. Hope you like it and hope everyone is having a good weekend. Be back soon

4 Leaf Clover

Here is another card made with another pure innocence stamp (can you tell that I really like these stamps at the moment) from MFT. As the title says the set used this time is called "4 Leaf Clover." The card has been made in the same way as the one below by paper piecing her dress with matching papers.
Hope you like it, and hope I haven't shocked anyone with my two posts in one day lol.

Birthday Princess

Good Morning and happy weekend to everyone, I can't believe another week has passed, time seems to be running at a very fast pace at the moment lol.
Here is a card I made this week with another Pure innocence stamp from MFT, the set is called Birthday Princess. These stamps are simply adorable and you can find them on Tracey's website which is Here.
I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her using a paper pad from My minds eye called Happy go lucky.

Here is a card a made for my friend who recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, today I have spent the afternoon at my friends which consisted of lots of cuddles, which is why I am now feeling extremely broody!! anyway back to the card.For this card I used a paper piecing technique called the Bargello technique which is a lot of fun to do and I just the love the finished result. The stamp in the centre of the card is from a set by Martha Stewart and the daisy is I am roses.

Altered note pad

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely weekend despite the horrible rain that we seem to be having today. Here is a little note pad that I purchased in paper chase yesterday, I love these little note book as the covers are made of very thick chipboard. They are £2.25 to buy and are excellent quality.Firstly I made a made a layer with some burgandy card stock and some patterened paper. The paper pad I used is the Lime twist pad by My minds eye and it is called Happy go lucky.. Then I used my Die-namics to cut the layered labels out, then stamped on them with a stamp from the Pure innocence stamp set called A box of love.

The little girl is from the same stamp set. To finish the note pad off I used a paper daisy that is adhered with hot glue.

I have also made a card to match. Hope you like it.

Better late than never!!

Well as the title says, better late than never lol. I apologise to all of you that have been nagging me to get these pictures up of the finished project lol. So here they are. I have decorated the inside of the mini with tags, pockets and tim holtz hardware but blogger is only letting me add 3 pics at a time for some reason.The mini fits perfectly inside the wooden box and has plenty of room for photos ect.

Hope you all like it, will be back soon with some more projects. Hope everyone is having a great day.
