Love is all around

Hello and welcome to another post.

Today's card is a Clean and simple card and so easy to make

A 6 x 6 card embossed with the 'Tied Together' embossing folder, and slightly coloured round the edge with Spun Sugar distress ink.  The heart was cut with a Couture die from Crafter's Companion.  The word love was stamped with Stazon and is from Hobbycraft.

I would like to enter this card into the 'Simply Less is More' Challenge - they like to see plenty of white!  The theme is: This makes me happy - this makes me happy because it reminds me of the feeling of extra love given to me by family and friends since I've been poorly

Glitter glitter everywhere!!!

Hello and welcome to  new post.  I decided to enter the' 'Something for the Weekend Challenge' over at:

We were given a digi to work with:

Here's what I did with it:

I put the candy striped paper onto an 8 x 8 card and then cut out the two edgers which are Spellbinder dies.

I copied the image onto printable acetate and used a combination of  Martha Stewart, Hunkydory and Sweet Poppy Glitters.  

Finally I added the sentiment 'Love your Dreams' and the flowers which were from my stash.

Unfortunately the photo doesn't show how fabulous the glitter looks - It shows it better if you click on the picture!

Clean and Simple

Hello and welcome to a new post.  Thank you for leaving comments, it's much appreciated.

Today's card is a real quick one as I went out for coffee to a couple of Garden Centres this morning.  I don't know if it's the time of year, but again they were disappointing as far as plants were concerned.  They all seem to be focusing on Home Decor rather than plants!

Anyway onto the card:

I started by using Pumice Stone distress ink round the edge of a 6 x 6 card.  I then inked up an acrylic block with a 'Stampin Up Sahara Sand inkpad and stamped it onto the card.  I then inked up the image with a 'Stampin Up Soft beige inkpad and stamped onto the background.  Next came the quote and the sentiment.
The stamps that I used are also from Stampin Up and is called Moon Lake.  There are two other images and quotes in the set, so I will probably show what I do with them at some point!

So, a really quick and easy card to make especially if your'e in a hurry or want a quick card.

Mermaid Freebie

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Thank you to everyone who commented on the last one xx

I have used another free download today which was on

The polka dots in the background were made with a mask from Ali Reeve, and using Sweet Poppy Pearlescent Paste  mixed with mica powder.  The bubbles are a stamp from Indigo Blu which I stamped with Memento and then added clear embossing powder and the grass is from Scenescapes.  I used distress inks to colour the background of the canvas.  The mermaid is coloured with Promarkers, and the fish stamp is a Designs by Ryn, again stamped with Memento and embossed.   I put some little gems here and there on the mermaid which were from my stash. 

 You may have to click on the picture to see it more clearly!

Grandma's button jar

Hi there.welcome to another post.  Thank you to those who visited my last one xxx

Today's card is a quick and easy one, you can get the free download here:
and here it is:

I must say it looks better in real life lol.  It was coloured with Promarkers and although you can't see, I sprayed it twice with Spray and Shine from Crafter's Companion.  I made a stand for it, but you could easily draw round the shape and put it back to back to make it into a card.

For a friend

Hello and welcome.  Thank you for finding the time to comment on my last post xx

Today's card is for my friend in Wales - she was my bridesmaid too many moons ago - she always sends an Easter card - something I'm afraid I no longer do, but when I was sorting through I came across a set of Easter stamps, so here it is!

The background paper is from the Country Garden collection by Craftwork cards.  I took another sheet and cut out the roses so that I could decoupage them.  The image is coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment was cut out using a spellbinder die, and the stamp set I used is from Crafty Impressions.

Till next time........................
