Happy little birdie

Hi hi :-)


Happy nearly weekend :-D Today is my DT day over at Make the Day Special Stamp Store-Throwback Thursday.
I know some of my posts can dubiously be called 'Throwback',but todays post is TRULY a throwback. I used  the gloriously vintage Paper Smooches Chubby Chum Pals and the not so quite as vintage Think Fast to create a card one of my favourite quotes


I know,I know-its a chicken,but it could be a seagull. If you half squint. And look from a distance ;-)

He and the fries are water coloured and the packet is paper pieced and the sentiment typed with my trusty vintage typewriter. Then a little stitching around the edge in 'fry' colour to finish it off.
I am poping this into the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge



Right,thats all from me-Im off to fulfill this cards demand ;-)

Papel Picado

Hello!

This is another catch up post from a DT post over on Make The Day Special Stamp Store (really must learn to sync these posts :-/ )

So this is from the gorgeous Avery Elle called Papel Picado. I was so so excited about this one when I saw its release <3
I wanted to get the whole fluttering through the street thing down,so background stamped a few flags in a neutral tone,then made the foreground ones bright bright bright!


Yeah,I stitched them.
I love stitching on card (now my machine has started behaving ;-))

I cant WAIT to use this set again (and again and again)

Hope you like it!

Late Spring!




Hello!
Playing catch up from my tardy blogging and found this card I made unsurprisingly waaaaay back in Spring ;-)
I used the then new release from Clearly Besotted Pretty Petals Plus and 'Love' die. I wanted to get a ton of texture in the flowers and decided the best way to do that would be to pop some of them out on pop dots (where would we be without pop dots?!)


And a closer peep at those layered flowers...

Very fresh card! Hope you like it :-)

In the stars

Hello!

Its nearly the weekend! Wahoo!
August is a veeeery busy Birthday month for me,so todays card is inevitably a Birthday one ;-)

Today is my DT day at Make the Day Special
I used all Mama Elephant products- Cosmic Stars and Starry Nights,(which is currently out of stock) and the scrummy not so throwback Starburst Cover Plate to create this,plus a smattering of Frantage for some extra stars


How cute is that lion?!


The Starburst plate is mounted over some glitter cardstock and raised on pop dots to create a mini shadowbox .

I hope you like it! And Mum,I hope you arent looking at this just yet! :-)

Ariel Tilda

Hi hi!

Ok,so remember a while ago I said I had been working on some Magnolia Tilda cards? Well this is the one I made for Boo's fourth birthday. This post is pic heavy! You have been warned ;-)


As a huge,and I mean HUGE Little Mermaid fan,there really was only one choice of card to make her hehehe,and I had just the right stamp...


Shimmer shimmer! This card is so blinged up the camera had trouble papping it!


The taggy :-)

So,there it is. Her face when she saw it was perfect <3
The thing I love most about this card is it was all just plain white. Every. Single. Piece. Just white. Add a little Distress Inks here and there,a little Perfect Pearls,a little Crackle Glaze and Frantage and voila! 
I love what I do :-)

Autumn thoughts already

Hello!

Yup,Autumn thoughts already-My most favourite season <3 I usually start thinking Autumn thoughts after December,to be honest and filling my Pinterest boards with rich reds,golds and all things Fall.

So todays card is made using the ever fabulous Paper Smooches. Pretty much just all dies lol! I used Pocket,Thanks and Leaves 1 for this. 
I cut the leaves from vellum then stained them with alcohol inks. The swirls are stamped from the Flap Happy set and the stitching along the pocket is from Needle Little Love (LOVE that set) All are available from Make The Day Special Stamp Store. I got my inspiration for this card from the MtDS current challenge here 


with this lush colour palette


Yup,think I've managed to get every single one of those colours in there! 

LOVE those leaves! <3

I am entering this into the Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge

A Good Apple

Woah,better dust off poor old blog's cobwebs! 
Where have I been? Well,things have been busy and emotional with Boo. She has been very ill and we have been trying to find a balance of chemo that works for her,so although I have been making minimal bits I just haven't had the energy to blog them all. So,lets play catch up!
Ok,today is my day over at Make The Day Special and as it is close to end of school,I am busy as a bee making teacher thank you cards :-/
Today's is made using Lawn Fawn's A Good Apple (such a cute set,and the first time it has ever seen ink!)
Here you go

And a sidey view...

Hope you like it!
