White on White!

This might be my first and last attempt at playing with Gesso and textured paste and since I don't have much in the way of different mediums to bring it to life I went for white on white and just inked the edges of everything. Played safe I think, should of gone to some mixed media classes so I could of let my hair down. I like it so thats the main thing.

Sweet Dreams!

Well we get a fine couple of days here and I go and attempt some gardening, just can't wait for someone else to do it and things go down hill from the start lol! Cut back a few branches on a dogwood and was pulling them out when out of nowhere a smack right in the eye so that was the end of my bit of gardening and everything else for a few days. A trip to A&E Monday night and back Tuesday morning for another check. Scratched the surface of my eye, really lucky there was no bits in it. So this is the first day I have spent any length of time online. Saying that was feeling pretty sorry for myself on Tuesday night and did a bit of online shopping, just hope I bought the right things as vision was pretty hazy through one eye!  So no crafting done this week but have a card I made a few weeks back,  kept it very simple.

Coloured up this East Wind digital image with my Copics. Made an 8x8 card which I don't often make, think they're a bit big and I didn't have any 7x7's left. Hasn't a home to go to yet so no sentiment till it has.

bye for now

All Dressed Up adorable cutie

My card today is using a freebie kindly provided by Wendy from All Dressed Up over on Kit and Clowder, isn't she adorable! In her shop now on Etsy.  Loved colouring her up, mind you, took some time but was worth it.
Decided to keep it clean and fresh looking.

White card from Polkadoodles, love the smoothness and different weights so can use it for different things, mix and match so the whites are the same!

Say it with flowers!

Another die cutting session seems to be my trend at the mo here. Find it simpler to pull a few papers out and some dies and play about  when health has lost its sparkle at times so many of that kinda days nowadays. This keeps the madness away lol!!

Another 7x5 card this time, used smooth white card for matting and layering cut and embossed with a Spellbinder die. The pretty papers are scraps from MME. The flowers are a punch set, curl them in and some out to give some dimension then the tricky part making it all come together with the Memory box flourish which I cut in two, the 50th from Britannia dies and the tag thingies (forgotten their name lol) and the happy birthday sentiment.  Finished off with a couple of clear gems.

Thank you for dropping by, I love to read what you think!

Time to Relax

A 7x5 card using an All Dressed Up image called Time to Relax coloured with Copics and teamed up with MME papers, love these colours together.  Used basic Spellbinder ovals and scalloped dies, the flower die I have had for way to long and never used and didn't realise how pretty it was when cut out and the bow Im afraid I can't remember the company,  now, lying in bed last night out of the blue it came to me it could be a Marieanne die!

Just Because!

A card using an image from The East Wind on Etsy. Been colouring a couple of days a week recently just for fun and if they turn out half decent they go on a card. If not it's just another learning curve. Background to the image is a discontinued SU embossing folder I managed to find on ebay, added some punched flowers. Image coloured with Copics.

Thank you for dropping bye, much appreciate  you leaving a comment x

A Card!

Really! Been nearly two weeks since I made one.

Really chilly here today, sunshine and snow showers, typical Scottish weather so climbed the stairs and hid in my craft room all day (got rid of the man for the day lol). Did a bit of card sorting out, must remember to jot down what I'm low on instead of buying an assortment everytime I go craft shopping! I then decided to finish this card I started a couple of weeks ago. Hasn't got a home to go too so no sentiment yet.

Cream linen/Kraft card
Kraft paper for the flower
Elizabeth Craft Designs Peony
Tim Holtz (so gorgeou) die, cut one corner then flipped over to other side and repeated
Ribbon/String from stash
Roses embossing folder for the Kraft frame

thank you for making time to drop in by

Just Because

Love my daisies so teamed it up with Nitwit' daisy' papers. Gingham blues, butterflies and daisies, definitely a Spring, Summery card. 6x6 scalloped card matted and layered with Nitwit' daisy' papers printed on linen card. The 'smile' sentiment is part of the digital kit, butterfly die and Just Because are  Memorybox and the daisy is from Creative Expressions (I think).

Looks squint but I think, well I know it's my photography skills lol!

Happy crafting

Easter makes with Love to Craft and Create!

Popping on to share my creations made with a gorgeous Easter kit I won on Facebook through Facebook page love to craft and Create. I'm honoured Monika wanted to showcase what I made, on her Facebook page today and her love to craft and Create blog. So here's what I made using, Craftandyoudesigns  Easter Greetings  papers ( just love the quality and they are not just for Easter, designs for any occasion) Egg die and later cut chipboard frames , you can find these all in her shop and much more.

Easter egg die,( part of my win), cuts out beautifully with one run through my machine  and added the Fiskars birdie punch, (no longer available Im afraid) 

So many pretty papers in this kit and Im so loving these ones. The later cut chipboard egg piece I inked the back part with TH distressing inks and painted top part with picket fence from TH. Flowers and lace from my own stash. Ribbon inked to match papers.

A side view

A wall hanging

Hate wasting anything, this is the frame from one of the chipboard egg pieces painted with crackle picket fence from Tim Holtz. The image from one of the paper sheets. The butterfly, flowers and sentiment are from my own stash.

Thats it from me, have I tempted you to have a peek in her shop lol! You won't be disappointed, loads of lovely things and I think good prices too........

Wishing you all a Happy Easter
