That Loving Angelic Look

Printed the beautiful girl image onto canvas paper, you can find her here. I have had this image printed off for ages but only just found her again the other day. It is one of Astrid’s freebies, if you haven’t seen them before they are well worth downloading and using. She has some more freebies on offer today.

This started with very soft and natural colours but just seemed to evolve and take on a life of it’s own. Layered with some fussy ripped napkins. Handmade the flowers using muslin, cardstock and newspaper also added some D I, Victorian Velvet. The ribbon was also dragged into the D I.

I am such a softie when is comes to pretty and feminine.


Scary Mary

I have the crafting head of a … BUTTERFLY… which flits from here to there, then spies something else which gets it totally side tracked from what it started in the first place.

At times like this I have the attention span of a … GOLDFISH!!!

I say this because I was visiting my dear friend Donna this morning from Creative Smiles and saw the beautiful card she made. That’s all it took for me to forget the urgent piece I am making.

My butterfly head spun off to find the image which I coloured whilst on my crafting hols in Wales … remember the one with the reader and the crafter!! Now you might think that I am really rude by calling them the crafter and the reader … mmm maybe we could make a film of this … but both ladies asked me not to name them in my posts.

Anyway the goldfish took over and everything else was forgotten except finding what I had done with her.

Found her in my finished box of coloured images. Nicknamed her Scary Mary on the hols. Just added her to a tag with a few embellies and job completed. Now she can go in my finished tag box … so many boxes!!!!!

Now where was I … urrr the urgent piece which should have been completed yesterday!!

Me Not Well

Wow in time to post the card which we will be making at the class today. We all find it so difficult to make a card for the men in our lives but even more difficult is to make a Get Well Soon card. So this week is exactly what we will be making.

Loved the image when I first saw the little guy with the bandage around his face so I cut him out and made him the focal point of the card. Now you can’t tell me that that isn’t the face of a male with Man Flu. Don’t you just want to kiss it … yukkkkk … not me!!


Swinging Time With Flowers

May Flowers is the theme this time round at Little Miss Muffet Challenges so I used the TH Tattered Florals die then added my own handmade rose … made a little bow with the left over material. Decisions decisions, which image to use, but Riley won out in the end.

We have a new member joining our team this week so please hop on over to say hi to JOEY also Barbara has some exciting things happening soon.


Spring Time

I am a hopeless romantic and if someone could wave a magic wand to transport me back in time it would be the Victorian era of Crinoline Dresses and Southern Belles. … Gone With The Wind is my all time classic fave movie. Did you know the term Southern first came from Scotland in around 1470 and Belle is French (the feminine form of beau derived from a Latin word bellus meaning pretty ).

I was lucky enough to go to Texas a few years back and whilst there we flew to Louisiana loved every minute of it, got to go on a paddle steamer along the Mississippi river … just fabulous … (Andrew would love to be writing this post because he would tell you about by huge faux pas whilst walking along Bourbon Street … not going to happen lol). Did you know that Louisiana became a state in 1800 and it was Napoleon who sold it to the United States?

Dreaming over back to the Little Miss Muffett Challenge which is SPRING COLOURS – This gorgeous image of La Promenade au Jardin is soooo pretty … what I would give to get into a dress like that today!!! Used a bit of everything as usual Copics, Pro-Markers and watercolour pencils this time round, the papers are more from my stash which I can’t remember the name of … sorry.

Pop on over and see what the DT’s have created every card is a piece of art.

I Have My Eye On You

Morning everyone … not so sunny today but still dry and warm …
Here is my mid challenge inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps and as soon as I saw this fun image of Grandpa Grumps he was on my to do list.
So here he is on a tag which then slots into the little book I made … coloured Grumps with Distress Inks then I threw water over the poor little chap, also masked him off … which he didn’t like because he couldn’t see what I was doing next … which was stamping all over his body.

Grandpa Grumps is a digi stamp but I have combined him with lots of wooden and acrylic stamps just to show how you can mix and match them.

Now my mate Pam thought she didn’t like these type of images … scary she called them … so I made this just for her … also as a little thank you for the crafting goodies she bought me. Pammy loved it and she has certainly changed her mind about these type of images, she now realises that they can look fun and dare I say cute looking.


Silhouette Waterfall Card

A SILHOUETTE drawing means an outline that appears dark against a light background
Exciting ehh well this is what we would love to see you creating on your project at Little Miss Muffet Challenges this fortnight.

As you know last week Barbara released all her digital images as silhouettes also for her challenges you don’t have to use a Little Miss Muffet image but how cute is this little guy below and Barbara is offering him as a freebie until 31st March 2012 … wahoooo!!!! Hurry up girls no time to waste go get it 😀 It says it is a bunny but me thinks you could have it as a puppy dog!!! If you would like a bit more inspiration then please check out all the creations from my amazing sisters here.

I have made a little waterfall card for my DT submission, purely and simply to show you that it doesn’t have to be a black silhouette you can change the colours from black to whatever you want. This waterfall card meant I can have three silhouettes in different colours. I still get a kick out of pulling the tab at the bottom of the card and everything starts cascading, hope you enjoy.

Shopping With Little Miss Muffet

Who doesn’t love shopping and the NEW Little Miss Muffet image Eleanor May Hatter has just finished her little trip lol.
Covered a card with acetate this time round but before I attached to the card I cut the acetate on the diagonal. Next a strip of punched paper was added, a die cut and flower. For the inside to look as pretty as the outside it is best to use double sided paper. Coloured with Pro-Markers and Copics but also stamped onto her hat, bags and the boots, you can just see the hint of a little shine which I did with a Sakura glaze pen

Paper pad used is – My Mind’s Eye – Honey Cake
Stamps – Art Impressions – Vine and Hobby Art – Ink Splat
Punch – ek Success Scandinavian Lace Chain
Flower – Prima

Easel Card

Little Miss Muffet time and the challenge this fortnight is a real easy peasy one we want to see an Easel or Step Shaped Cards … see said it was easy.

My easel card has a little twist because the top half opens and becomes a gatefold.
To keep the gatefold closed I have added little magnet discs underneath the papers.

Haven’t finished embellishing the inside because this has been made with a wonderful persons birthday in mind and I want to add some personnel sentiments later. Used Basic Grey papers called Eva and fussy cut the peacock because I thought it looked so pretty. Made one of my concertina butterflies … still addicted to these but have to sit on my hands otherwise they would be on every card 😆 stamped a butterfly image behind this time that way I didn’t have to add any antennas myself. If you look on the left hand side of my side bar you can find the details of the butterfly there.

Used another of my fave images called … La Jeune Fille à l’eventail … bit of a mouthful, think it’s her name and something to do with a fan … eh don’t quote me though. Coloured with Copics, Pro Markers and a bit of water colouring … think you know me by now I throw just about everything at it.


Romance Is In The Air Today

29th February 2012 … Leap Year Girlies and today’s the day when you can propose to the man of your dreams!!!

Wonder who Elisabeth Louise Hatter will be asking for their hand in marriage???
All the LMM teemies have been showcasing lots of inspiration in the month of February and today I am showing the inside and the back of a card which was posted earlier.

Everything has been thrown into this one because it is being sent to a very special and amazing girl… AMBER. She absolutely adores stamping, colouring and of course fashion so this card has everything that any girlie would love.

Today is also reveal time for Three Companies Team Up

I have already shown the front of the card but have put it in again in case you didn’t see it first time round … if you didn’t where were you 😆
