Fizzy Moon!

Some more new toys to play with! Fizzy Moon!! Gorgeous! (but not that easy to colour!!)

Another card in the red and green theme.  These little LOTV characters are just lovely!

Not sure what kind of card to make with this image.. its a digi stamp from Tickled Pink. I was on a search for something "evil" and "witchy" but found this little vampire and though she was lovely! My colouring isn't great but it looks ok in real life. Juts not sure what to do with her now.. I do have a spider die.. that could be quite effective!
Second Christmas card.. I've got my mojo back! Must be all these lovely new stamps! I'm tempted to get some more!!
Trying to decide what colours to do for Christmas.. I like this blue but I think I prefer the red and green.

It's great to have found my crafty mojo again! all is right with the world.. LOL!

First Christmas Card of the Year

It's quite hard to make a christmas card when it's so warm! But here she is, my first attempt using my lovely new Lili of the Valley.  She's coloured with promarkers and a bit of glitter added for her fur collar.
The papers are from DCWV (The Christmas Glitter Stack).
The greeting is also LOTV and the accents are cuttlebug.

And there's more to come! OMG!  I'll be able to get these at GNPE in September.. oooh I can't wait!

This lovely star book/album is really effective and very rewarding! 
Thanks to the lovely Gill for the inspiration!

Shades of turquoise and blues this time.   Made a couple of spare toppers with the scraps!
These flowers are addictive!!

Using up some scraps!

Cut some more flowers from the scraps and decided to make some gift tags and a notepad.  These are really quite rewarding to make - quick and effective!

Ooo Ooo!

The NEW Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps are out! And they are gorgeous!  I had to be so strict not to put them all in my basket!  Got 5 though, and the christmas circular sentiments!

Take a look here ... and there are more coming in August!  Time to save up for more!

Variation of a theme

Something a bit brighter than the last one - to reflect this lovely bright day!

Some nice fresh colours on this .. not my usual combination.  This image is lovely to colour with ProMarkers!

Flowers and a butterfly. I think I might try and see if this works in brighter colours rather than the naturals.

Something to look forward to!

The best show in the country!  Can't wait! 
Can't come quick enough!  Definately going to make a party weekend of it this year!!
Another beautiful day!  I think I might take some inspiration from all the lovely flowers in the garden! But what to make??

All things bright and sunny!

What a lovely day today! 
All this bright sunshine inspired a sunny card! 

Why?  Just "Bee-cause!"

Aren't these papers just gorgeous and bright!  (Echo Park - Summer Days)

Also just kitted out the new car in all things pink (not my usual style but Sarah loves it!). 
The best accessory has to be the Hello Kitty car mats!  (cool!)

what to do with...

...the bits of thick cardboard that come in the packaging of shirts...

This little album measures 9" x 7.25" and is covered with brown paper then Tim Holtz cardstock. The cardstock pages inside are cream and it's all held together using the Bind it All.  The fastener is Tim Holtz. 
To think that these bits of cardboard could have just ended up in the bin!
The whole thing needs embellished but I'll wait until I know what I'm going to use it for. Loads of scraps of the creams and greens left so I'll need to think what else I can make!

Pottering around...

Still not got a great deal of mojo so I thought I would have a play with the SU two step owl punch.  I started off with Christmas in mind and make a couple of penguins then made the owl. I must get my thinking cap on to design my christmas cards for this year (penguins may feature!)

I used some of my SU neutrals cardstock to make two little gift voucher holders.. The pic below shows what they look like in the inside (not very exciting, I know!)

Now I think I'll do a wee bit of shopping at the Ribbon Girl.. need some more of the gorgeous cream seam binding!!

As promised, here's what I made yesterday!  Still a bit stuck for inspiration as you can see.
This is the first time I've used "Sail Away" by Stampin Up.  I was a bit stuck for ideas so googled the stamp name and saw some lovely examples - decided to keep it simple on this cards. The greeting is also by SU from the "So Happy for You" set. 
I had some spare (K&Co) paper left so made a wee note card and notebook with some left overs. Really quite rewarding to make!
