Embossed

Hello lovely people,

I am here with a very quick post to share my card for Totally Gorjuss and this week we want to see some ‘Embossing.’  Now, I don’t use either heat or dry embossing all that much but I do have a couple of embossing folders that don’t see the light of day very much.  So, I shook the dust off one of them and went for a really simple little design;

Card recipe;
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug D’vine swirl
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl
Heart / flower: cut with Cricut
Wooden heart button: from stash

I surprised myself with how much I liked this card when it was finished and even better, it didn’t take very long to make!

Do stop by the Totally Gorjuss blog to see some inspirational ideas for embossing from the rest of the DT.

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,

Spring shades

Hello lovely people,

Well, I don’t know if Spring is finally here to stay but we are all about the ‘Spring Shades’ over at Totally Gorjuss this week.  The new Spring Basics collection from Maja Designs (available from Live and Love Crafts) is perfect for this theme and I had to buy pretty much every design in the collection as they were all just so beautiful!

I used several layers of pretty papers (I had so many to choose from!) all matted onto Kraft, then stitched and inked around the edges.  Here you can see the layers and the little ribbon loop under the button;

I also decided to add to my collection of Saturated Canary images as I have loved these awesome digistamps by Krista for a long time but only have a couple.  I thought Ava with her balloon was a great match for the spring papers and I have coloured her with my Copics – I think I am slowly getting the hang of them but still have lots to learn.

I would also like to enter this card in the Saturated Canary Challenge this week which has the theme of ‘Anything Goes.’

Please do head on over to Totally Gorjuss to see the beautiful creations from my teamies and if you enter our challenge then you might win a prize from our lovely sponsors, Crafters Companion.

Cheeky birthday greetings

Hello lovely people,

The weekend rolls around again and the theme at Totally Gorjuss this week is ‘For Your Men’….yes, always a tough one I know!   Our sponsor this week is Heather’s Hobbie Haven so the lucky winner will have plenty of loveliness to choose from 🙂

I think most men would appreciate Cheeky Geeky from TGF and she is the star of the show here, coloured in with ProMarkers/FlexMarkers.  I made the little ticket by printing the blank ticket image onto Kraft card, cutting it out and stamping the sentiment on it.

Fairy nice

Hello lovely people,

Unbelievably this is my second card of the day so if you are looking for my Totally Gorjuss GDT card then scroll on down…

When I saw the theme for the Tiddly Inks challenge this week it was the perfect excuse to get another one of their gorgeous digistamps and I have picked Wryn – Fairy Friends; isn’t she just the cutest?  I have coloured her with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and just added a tiny bit of TH Frayed Burlap ink round the edges of the DP panels.

Don’t be square!

Hello lovely people,

Wow, I don’t often manage 2 blog posts in a day, but here I am again!  This time I am sharing my card for the Totally Gorjuss Challenge, which is to make anything but a square card.  I have gone for a little wintery scene on a circle card.  I love how the little button/pearl tree came out 🙂

Card recipe;

Snowflake punch: Tonic Studios

Glitter: Crystal Stickles

Better late than never!

Hello,

This is my VERY late entry for the Die-ing for a Challenge theme of ‘Halloween or Monster’ as I forgot to post it earlier – oops!

I have used the super cute witch from the Spooktacular digi stamp set from TGF and the layout inspiration came from this sketch from TGF Double Take Tuesdays Challenge;

I have followed the sketch pretty closely, using ProMarkers to colour in the image and I have inked most of the papers with black ink, but used white acrylic paint brushed round the edge of the main panel.

Card recipe;

DP: Bo Bunny – Enchanted pad (available from Dies to Die For) and a little scrap of random orange spotty paper

Scalloped edge: Magnolia Doohickey die – Tilda lace (available from Dies to Die For)

Sentiment: Personal Impressions ‘All year round’ stamp set

Button and thread: from stash

Hope you all had a spooktacular halloween and thanks for stopping by,

Post-it note holder

Hello,

I have seen various versions of the post-it note holder on Pinterest and thought I would have a go at making one as part of a ‘welcome back care package’ for a work colleague returning from maternity leave.  I used a flat piece of card from a cereal box, covered it with DP or Kraft card and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut.

A slightly different view;

The inside, and you can just about see where I have folded up the bottom section of card and glued the edges to make a pocket that the back page of the post-it note pad slides into;

Recipe;

DP/Tag: Simple Stories (Documented collection)

Bakers twine: from The Ribbon Girl

Button: from stash

I would like to enter this in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge which is anything goes…with a button!

Thanks for stopping by,
