Temporary Break from Crafting

Currently having some time out. Lost my mojo, light on orders and truth be told swimming is taking over my life. I am participating in the "Swimathon" for Marie Curie in April, so in full training mode.

Still check in with you all for inspiration from time to time. I'm loosing followers left, right and centre lol, so if anyone is reading this, then thank you.

Birthday Bunting


Good Afternoon,

Hope everyone is well, I have another card to share with you, been practising with my "inktense Pencils". Got this gorgeous "Tilda" in the "Bunny Zoe's" sale and the papers too.

 

I have decoupaged parts of "Tilda" to add some depth to the card, cut her out with my nesties. The bunting is a "La La Land" die.

 

The sentiment stamp is a digi from "Pink Petticoat Stamps" and reads "find joy in everything".
Thanks for looking.

New Year - New Creative Challenges

 

Happy New Year Everybody,
Hope 2015 brings you all good health and happiness. For me it's also a chance to expand my creativity and step away from just cards. So today I want to share this door hanger with you.

I bought it plain wood for 99p at my local craft shop. I have decorated it with papers from the "Graphic 45 - Raining Cats and Dogs" papers.

 

I adore the vintage images, fonts and prints. I have embellished the door hanger with paper roses and beads from "The Ribbon Girl". I have distressed the edges of all papers and card used.

 

I have also decorated the reverse of the hanger.

I've enjoyed making this and look forward to doing many more in the future.

Thanks for looking, short and sweet.

2 Creative Chicks - #22 Anything Goes (NO Cards).

Good Luck In Your New Home

 

Good Morning Everyone,
Quick post from me, been extremely busy at school these last two weeks, I've not had a day of since 30th November, but we break up on Friday for THREE WHOLE WEEKS lol.

Anyway this is a custom card, for a couple moving to away from Whitehaven to another village in Cumbria called Alston.

 

The image is a gorgeous Digi Stamp from "Just Inklined called Bramble Lane" and I coloured it with "Derwent Inktense Pencils", incidentally how lucky am I that these pencils and the Derwent Factory is in Keswick which is only a 30 min drive from me :) whoop whoop.

I kept the card quite simple as I wanted the image to have centre stage.

 

The sentiments were computer generated and attached with foam pads to a magnolia tag die. The Ribbon, buttons and papers are from my stash.

Thanks so much for popping by.
