Wee One.....

Hi everyone.

Today is the start of a new challenge month over at Bizzy Becs and I would like to share my card created for this months challenge.

I have used a very cute stamp from Whimsy Stamps and the card had pefect timing as our family recently welcomed another new member.

The image was coloured with Copic Markers and Primsa Coloured pencils.





Supplies used:
Whimsy Stamps - Wee One
Taylored Expressions Stamp & Die - Simple Strips
Memory Box Die - Shaker Circle Frames
(This is an old die but may still be available)
Dress my Craft Sequins - Sea Breeze
Copic Markers


I cut the Shaker Circle Die 5 times and layered them together placing acetate under the top layer.  I then  glued them into the circle I cut into the background to create my shaker, added the sequin mix and then attached to the base card.  With the addition of  sequin stars around the outside which were  highlighted in  the centre  with  Ranger Stickles in Turquoise. I am delighted how the card turned out.

Thanks for looking

Until next time - Happy Crafting

followed in a vintage style to create my Fathers Day card.

Celebrating with you.....

Hi everyone.

Popping in today to share my latest card with you.

I have used a die from Spellbinders as the focal for my card which  I gave to my husband on his birthday.

I die cut the frame three times in black cardstock and glued them together to create depth, adding the centre pieces back in.  I then die cut it again three times in the blue and pieced some of them into the frame and created the extra pattern on the centre of the die to create some interest.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, love these,  all different sentiments,  great for all occasions. 

The background paper is from half a sheet of Scrapbooking Paper I have had in my stash  from eons ago by Making Memory.




Supplies Used:

Spellbinders Kaleidoscope die - Optical Illusion
Taylored Expressions die and stamp - Simple Strips Background
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Black Soot
Hero Arts Embossing Powder - white

Until next time - Happy Crafting
