Monique Loves Macaroons....


Hi everyone just popping in today to share two of my latest cards.  

It has been a very busy month this month with one thing or another and haven't had time to share these onto here...oopsie.

Below is a card I made for a friends birthday, just love how it came together, the macaroons where such fun to colour.



                                                      Stamping Bella - Monique loves Macaroons
Avery Elle Die - Wonky Stitches
Lawn Fawn Stamp - Year Two (sentiment)
(maybe available upon request)
Copic Markers



This card was a bit of an experiement.  I have had these sizzix thinlits for ages, sadly unused .  I have cut down the scribbly circles to allow them to fit onto the card, after cutting out several in different colours.  These colours had the best feel especially if using for a male.  The washi tape gives it a little lift.






I have used the following

Sizzix Thinlits - Scribbles and Splat
Avery Elle Die - Wonky Stitches
Taylored Expressions - Think Happy Thoughts 
(This is old, but may still be available)
Lawn Fawn Stamp - Party Animal




Hope you have had a lovely week and thanks for dropping by.

Until next time,

Happy crafting

Shop 'til you drop...

Hi everyone.

Wow what a day we are having.

 The weather in Perth today has been crazy wild.  It has been cold,  with very strong winds and heavy rain.  Trees down and lots of houses without power. 

So it has been a great day to stay inside and have a play with a newly acquired stampset
from Penny Black.



I have stamped this cutie onto patterned paper from my stash, and have 
coloured her up using Copic Markers, using a Nuvo glitter pen to
add accents to some of the shopping bags and balloon.
I have also used my white Gelly Roll pen to add high lights.

The following items have been used:

Penny Black Transparent Stamp - You're Retro
Lawn Fawn Stamp & Die Set - Hello Sunshine 
Nuvo - Glitter Gloss pen
Gelly Roll - White
Washi Tape

Thanks for dropping in, hope you are having a wonderful day.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
