Sending lots of colour your way.

Hi bloggies!

Just a quick little card today … lots of colour … but sweetly simple …

2DCEAAC0-8265-4870-A735-AB39F3F055FC

We have a big cleanup going on at our place today. All the boys are here! (And the rest of the family too!) Imagine … a big 3 space shed plus another smallish lean to shed. Imagine … timber off cuts and tools … mowers and motor bikes … a ramp to ride bikes into the dam … a camper trailer … a rubbish heap … ski boots … fencing wire … a chook pen hidden by lantana … and the list goes on! We have to move out early next year for the next stage of development around our farm. So … we need to do a big clean up before we go. Then when we come back (2 yrs later and 97.5 acres smaller) … we can start planning for our new house. Sigh … we have been waiting for over 12 years … and it is still probably another 3 years before we finish and occupy our “dream” home. I can only take comfort in the fact that God’s plans are best and His timing is perfect.

  • Simon Says Stamp – Best Ever Stamp set
  • Doodlebug – Fairytales paper
  • Copic Markers

Anyway … I had better go …

Hope you have a happy weekend! I’m sending lots of colour your way.

Hang in there!

Hi bloggies!

I made some cards recently to encourage some year 12 friends who began their final exams yesterday. It took a couple of nights in front of the TV to colour them all (12 in total) … but it was very therapeutic! 🙂

So … all the images are COPIC coloured and the backgrounds are done with Distress Oxide Inks sponged over a stencil. Yes … it all took ages … 😁 … but worth it in the end.

Click images to view.

I used a white gel pen to add details to the images. Totally unnecessary … but it does add a nice effect. And … after all … I needed to give myself more to do! 😉

  • Clearly Besotted Stamps – Cheeky Monkey (+ dies)
  • Tiddly Inks – Hang in There (no dies – fussy cut!)
  • CC Designs: Swiss Pixies – Field Fence
  • My Favorite Things stamps – Cascading Scallops stencil

My quick trip to Q’ld was so worthwhile and the funeral was very special. I am so glad I made the effort. I am hoping for a quiet day tomorrow … perhaps even do some stamping … but don’t worry … I still have heaps to share!

Hope you get to Stamp tomorrow too!

Stamping Bella Unicorns

134979B8-80C5-4A96-BEB3-BAE7EEF05AF3

Hi again bloggies!

I am a tad tickled about today’s card. Sometimes things just “work”. This card was one of those times. And … the stamp set is soooo super cute! I can’t wait to play with it again.

8D20D310-9DD8-4677-8D81-CB197E0496AC

I very carefully measured and cut the square windows separately with a Simon Says Stamp stitched square Die. Yes … it took awhile … especially as I always make 2 of every card design! But … it was definitely worth it. The adorable background paper is from a pad of 6X6” Doodlebug papers called “Fairy Tales”. It matched perfectly with tiny unicorns all over. The sweet little gemstones are also new … from “Little Things by Lucy’s Cards” and called Blackberry Mix Jewels. I got the papers & jewels from my friend, Melissa who runs a monthly craft retreat day and has her own local online stamp shop. I find it so hard to resist … I dare you to try! 😉 Create By Me Studio 

  • Stamping Bella – Set of Unicorns stamps + dies
  • Stamping Bella – Unicorn Sentiment set (+Die)
  • Doodlebug Papers – Fairytales

Hope you have time to craft today! 🙂

Under the Sea

C16D251D-5E91-40A9-AD78-39F9BCD7D92C

Hi bloggies!

I have had a project going lately … to fill up my stash with some encouragement cards … so you will be seeing a few over the next few weeks. You won’t believe it … but I have nearly finished my Christmas cards too!! So … plenty to share! 😃. Now just need to find the time to blog!!

EC77D633-657D-44DC-9594-3F456F073102

I fossicked around in my goodies and found my metallic gelatos and thought they would be perfect for colouring this fab Stamping Bella background image. They worked beautifully! I used Copics for the images and some distress Oxide ink to add colour to the sea weed die cuts.

With an unexpected trip to Queensland this week … it is going to be tricky juggling all that is in my calendar. Yep … last week quiet … next week quiet … but the week I have to go interstate I have a week of something on EVERY day … AND EVERY night. But …. it will happen! 🙃

  • Taylored Expressions – Under the Sea stamps & dies.
