A Special Mouse


Back again with my third card of the day. This time i have a house mouse card to share featuring one of the digi image from the cd rom that i have made for this weeks Flowers challenge. This is my favourite theme so i had to join in!

This image is so sweet and goes perfect for any romantic occasions. I made this one as an anniversary card. I coloured mine with spectrum noirs.

I used first edition blank canvas papers in the peach and cream tones, i also embossed one of the panels with a floral folder. 
I added ribbon, lace and some handmade diecut flowers and pearls.


You've INCHED your way...


Today i have a card to share featuring this sweet Wee stamp digi image from Whimsy Stamps. Wee stamps are one of my favourites as they are just so sweet!
I coloured my image with promarkers and matched to Crafters Companion summer breeze papers.
I embsllished with lace and ribbon, pearls and a sweet sentiment from a penguins stamp set from Whimsy stamps.


Spring Blessings!


Doesn't this toddler just look so happy in this image from Digital pencil too?
I coloured my image with promarkers and created and easle card using Crafters Companion natures garden spring papers. I added lilac ribbon, lace, handmade diecut flowers and a spring sentiment.




For this house mouse card i used quite muted tones. The papers are from a Crafters Companion paper pad. I made my card 5 1/2x 5 1/2 in so that my topper over hung slightly.
I diecut my flowers and added pearls, ribbon and a sentiment.
My image is coloured with spectrum noirs.

I decided to join in with The Ppaer shelter Challenge this week, which theme is birthday.

I made this card using the image Rosie, coloured with spectrum noirs and promarkers.
Ive been trying to use up old paper pads and these papers came from a K and Co stack.

Winston: Sending Hugs and Kisses



At the moment its nice to send a little note to friends and family to let them know your thinking about them or just to say hello.
Ive been doing this with my friends and this is one of the smaller, CAS cards i made.

I used an old DCWV card set which are smaller than A6 and made this sweet little note.
I printed and cut out Winston bear from Polkadoodles and coloured with promarkers.
I diecut a heart aperture and stamped a sentiment inside.

Lilac and Aqua


This week I decided to join in with the paper shelter challenge.
I've had this image for a while and never used it, but an idea for this card just came to me so I made it!
I coloured my image with spectrum noirs and die cut into an oval.
I used crafters companion vintage lace papers, matted on matching card and made my own flower with the same papers.
I added a bow, pin and jewel to match the one on the image, pearls and a sentiment.


Ruffles at Springtime

Happy Easter everyone!

I dont usually make any easter cards anymore, but this year i thought it was a nice way of staying in touch with everyone.

I found this old Stampavie Ruffles at springtime stamp and coloured it up with promarkers.
I used dovecraft papers and kept it quite simple. I made my own flowers with a crafters companion die and added a bow and sentiment to finish.

House Mouse: Fish Bowl


I printed out some house mouse digis a few weeks ago from the CD rom and this is the first one I used.
I think it might be the first time I've used this fishbowl image, coloured with spectrum noirs.

I used a DCWV paper pad which includes sparkly patterns.
I used the purple and green and added pearls, some seaweed like diecuts, which don't show up that well in the photo and a sentiment that I found that I thought went well.
I also added glitter to the gravel and some of the fish scales.

Scruffy Little Cat


Being at home Ive had time a lot of time to look through the stamp box and find out some old stamps. I love using my usuals but sometimes you just need something different and this time i picked out the Scruffy Little Cat stamps from Crafters Companion. As far as i know they are no longer produced.

I coloured my image with promarkers and matched to the first edition blank canvas papers. I made my own flowers, { something ive done a lot lately }and added lace. I kept it sentiment free so i can choose once i need it.

I hope everyone is keeping well.

I added ribbon and lace to embellish.
