Sunflower Girl

Lovely weather we are having. Did anyone see the Starlink Satellites last night? It came right over our home and it was incredible to see. Sadly though with the meteor shower I only got to see one shooting star.

My card today, I have used an image from Stampendous called Always Shine. I had a go at colouring with Brusho’s again and really enjoyed it this time. The sunflower chain and hat I’ve used glossy accents. I snipped always some of the backing paper and overlapped over the image. I’ve used those daisies again and added pearl centres. Found some suitable embellishments and there you have it.

And Relax

This cheeky little fella is doing the right thing. Relaxing and letting the world go by. Sadly reality isn’t like that right now, but crafting helps us to chillax.

My image is from House Mouse and today for a change I used my Brusho’s to colour the image. Was a little challenging but I thing I’ve reached the best I can do, I’ll just have to keep on practising. I’ve added some hand punched flowers adding pearl centres, a dragonfly embellishment, some twine and the papers and card from stash.

Let the Weekend Begin.

I’m just reminding myself that the weekend is here, as the days are all rolling into one. It was a rainy day today so a good opportunity to get some crafting done without feeling that I should be in the garden.

I spent most of the day making the families Christmas cards. I’m pretty please with the results. I also manage to make a birthday card. This is a real old stamp and one I’ve never used. It’s from Penny Black and called Good Friends. It’s so cute. I’ve coloured the image with Promarker pens, and made the daisies and forget-get-me-nots from punches.

Christmas Wave

With the sun shining it’s hard to make Christmas cards, but I’m on a mission to get an early start. I’ve nearly finished my knitting project and a quilled picture I’ve been working on, so planning my next larger projects.

This large wooden stamp is from Whipper Snapper and called Santa, Horse and Pup. I’ve coloured this with Promarkers and added a bit of glossy accents and Snow Writer. The snowflake border is a die from Memory Box called Frostyville Border. Lastly I added a mirrored snowflake and tiny weenie snowman embellishment.

Daisies Everywhere

Easter is fast approaching and sadly I will not be able to see my grandchildren, my mum or get to the beach, but I’m happy to do my bit and stay home so we can all be safe and save lives. I’m lucky to have a garden which keeps me busy.

My card today is Easter themed, which I’m sending to my mum. She helped me punch out all the daisies from my scraps of paper.

The image is from House Mouse called Easter Surprise which I’ve coloured with Promarkers. Hand punched daisies have gems in the middle for sparkle.

Rainbow Colours

Well another few crazy days on this planet. We hope our PM recovers very quickly. Thankfully I have my crafting to loose myself for a few hours.

The stamp I’ve used for this card is from Whipper Snapper Designs and called Feathered Friends and they are just so cute and funny. I used Promarkers to colour the image using the brightest colours I had. I’ve used glossy accents on the beaks and stars and used a gelly roll pen to had a little glitter. I’ve also added two ballon embellishments.

Christmas Angel

I went for green for my Christmas card today. I have no idea why. I never plan how I’m going to set out a card, I generally do what I feel in that moment. Not always the best plan but it’s okay for me.

The stamp I’ve used is from The Greeting farm called Anya Angel, and I don’t believe I’ve ever used this stamp....

I’ve used Promarkers to colour and added a wooden snowflake which I added some gems, pearls and Angel dust to wings.

Whatever The Weather

Don’t forget your umbrella, as you never know when it’s going to rain. I thought being in isolation for the next however many weeks, that I would finish off my on going projects. Not here, I’ve started 4 more projects. One cross stitch, two knitting and one quilling picture! Not even got the puzzles out yet.

Today’s card is a stamp from Whiff of Joy which is coloured with Promarkers. I’ve added glossy accents to the umbrella, die cut clouds, a butterfly charm, some gems and a little tulip embellishment. Card and paper from stash.

Christmas Buddies

All the days seem to be merging in to one. Wasn’t sure what day of the week it was when I woke this morning, but at least we are safe. Seems no end in sight yet with this cruel virus. So looking really far ahead I made another Christmas card in a bid to be ahead of myself for the festive season.

I love House Mouse images, they are just so cute and this one is called Christmas Feathered Hugs. I’ve used Promarkers to colour the image, used glitter card, glitter glue and a gold glittery Gelly Roll pen to glitter the foliage. Paper, card and Diamant√©’s from stash.
