Some sunshine!

IMG_2672Hi bloggies!

This will be quick as I am doing this post on my phone. I decided to leave my computer at home & bring my iPad with me for our mini break at the beach! But … then I realized that all my recent photos of card creations are on my phone … so if I want to share … then phone it is!!!

IMG_2671This is a recent card I made for a special birthday! It is a little ray of sunshine, don’t you think? I just smile whenever I see it!

IMG_2675There is a beautiful shimmer (wink of Stella) on all of the centers of the flowers and on the “smile” word. It’s a shame that the photos don’t pick it up better!

All the watercolouring is done with Zigs & a water brush.

  • Impression Obsession – Smile Stamp set & matching die

Hope you are having a great day! I am enjoying a little respite at a family favourite holiday cottage for a few days. See you soon! Hugs xxx

Mother’s Day Floral Shaker

Mothers Day 2Hi again!

So much to share … so little time! Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into a card … it just doesn’t translate the way you have in your mind. But … then there are other times when everything seems to fall into place and the result is more than pleasing! This card made me happy! 😀

Mothers Day 1

I always love playing with this stamp set. And … of course, the matching dies make it so easy to pull a card together more quickly. This did take some time to do the COPIC colouring … I was doing enough for two cards … but the result was worth it. Some ‘wink of stellar’ sparkle was the perfect finish. My two mums loved their mother’s day cards. 🙂

Sorry the photos are a little dark. The Windows update to photo editing just isn’t as good as the previous version. I was so used to the old one! Hugs xx

Stacking Animals put a smile on your face!

SSS - Stacking Animals Jul16 (5)

Hello friends!

I guess you have been thinking I had dropped off the face of the planet! But … even though it has been awhile … I haven’t forgotten all my blog buddies. I am sorry it has been so long! Life has been busy! But … I am not going to bore you with the details except to say that mostly it has been happy busy! 😀

SSS - Stacking Animals Jul16 (3)

I wanted to share a few cards with you and decided to start with one using a stamp set that always puts a smile on my face! It is super fun and perfect for those tricky male cards.

Click on any picture to enlarge!

I had fun doing an embossed, sponged ink background and some copic colouring on the animals. The sentiment is adorable. I have another card to share using this set … hopefully that won’t be too long! 😉

Whimsy – Penguin Oops!

whimsy-penguin-oops-nov16-7

Hi there!

I have done all my Christmas shopping and it is gift wrapped and under the tree! Feeling pretty organised … but still have to think about food for 3 family Christmas events at our place. Christmas Eve is our time with our kids and grandkids. My extended family is going to be away over Christmas so we are having a day together on the 17th Dec … and Gav’s family is coming on the 26th. So … I had better get myself organised … I have cooking to do!

I usually make 4 of each Christmas card … just to be efficient with my limited time. This one I did in two different colour schemes … one mainly gold colouring to match the DSP … the other a little brighter.

A cutie-pie image and some glitter snowflakes on the black background is really eye-catching.

The most wonderful time of the year!

impression-obsession-most-wonderful-time-nov16-3

Hi again friends!

Time for another Christmas card … I still have quite a few to share!

impression-obsession-most-wonderful-time-nov16-2

This is one of the images that I pre-coloured with my COPICS. When it came to finishing these cards … it was a little tricky wondering what to do with them. Then I found this new sentiment stamp I had recently bought … problem solved!

The snowflakes are die cut from white card stock and then the colour was sponged onto them. An easy option for matching colours!

  • Impression Obsession – Most Wonderful Time
  • Verve – Holiday Greeting

How are your Christmas cards going? I was finished even before the end of November. It was such a help to have done all the COPIC colouring during our October holiday. Hugs xxx

Stamp Club Project

su-floral-boutique-dsp-sept16-1-copyHi bloggies!

I have recently joined up to a stamp club run by Leonie, my SU! buddy. I just thought it would be nice to catch up regularly for some social and stamping time … but so far I have only made it to 2 of 4 workshops! It is also a good opportunity to see some of the new SU! goodies in action. This is one of the projects I managed to get done. A gorgeous little gift card set that Leonie found online!

The gorgeous papers on these cards are from the “Floral Boutique” DSP pack.

The die cut on the white band is the “Detailed Floral Thinlits” die.

Hope you are enjoying my recent posts! Hugs xx
