Happy Birthday Jasmine!

Hello, hope everyone is doing okay.  

It has been a few week's since my last post.  I've done little bits of crafting over recent weeks - mainly starting things but not finishing them!!  Don't know what the problem is but "Mr Mojo" seems to have taken off.  

Anyhow I did manage to finish a couple of birthday cards recently (no choice really as I needed to send the cards to the recipients!) and this was the first one.

The design is very simple - basically just the image, a couple of sentiments and ribbon.  I think for a teenage girl these images by LOTV are perfect.

Copic Alcohol Markers were used to colour the image as follows:

Skin : E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair : E53, E35, E59
Hoodie/Skirt : BG10, BG11, BG72
Skirt/Shoes : R81, R83, R85
Phone : W0, W2, W5, W7
Ground  W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W4

Card Information:

Image : Jasmine Phone by LOTV (I used a rubber stamp but it is no longer available.  However, you can get the image as a digi stamp here.) 
Sentiments : Happy Birthday Die (Simon Says Stamp); Special Niece (LOTV - retired)
Embellishments : Organza Ribbon (My Craft Stash) and Pink Heart (Little Things by Lucy's Cards)

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comments - I really do appreciate you taking the time.

on Your Engagement


Hope everyone is doing okay.  Unfortunately 2021 is continuing in much the same vein as 2020!  Fortunately, I've got lots of crafty things in my craft room to keep busy.
A colleague at work recently got engaged and this is the card that I made for her.  

The image is Close Your Eyes by LOTV and has been coloured with Copic Alcohol Markers.  

I cut the image out using a Nestabilities Die - Floral Ovals by Spellbinders.  This was layered onto designer paper from the Life In The Country 6 x 6 Paper Pad by Maja Designs.  The small hearts were created by using the Stacked Hearts die by Simon Says Stamps.  The sentiment is also by LOTV.  

A single rose bud, ribbon bow and pearls were added as embellishments.  

Thank you for visiting my blog - I do appreciate it.  

Have a lovely, safe weekend.

Happy New Year and 'Thank You'

Hello and Happy New Year, 

I hope you all managed to somehow enjoy your Christmas and New Year in these difficult circumstances.  I truly hope that 2021 is a better year and that we get back to some normality in due course but I fear we have a couple of difficult months ahead! 

Today I am sharing a “thank you” card which was created using the Flowers in Bloom image by MFT.  

I stamped the image, using Memento Ink, onto Make in Colour Card and coloured the image using Copic Alcohol Markers.  I then fussy cut the image (there is a matching die set available if you don’t fancy fussy cutting)

I die cut a square, slightly smaller than the card blank, and added a strip of designer paper from the Black and White Basics 6x6 Paper Pad (MFT) along the bottom.  The flower image was then added on top. 

The “thanks” is a Simon Says Stamp die which was cut out three times and layered up.  A couple of black gems were added as embellishments.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I really do appreciate it and for any comments left.

Christmas Penguins


As there are only a few days left before Christmas Day I thought I would share a couple of the Christmas cards I've made this year.  

Both cards feature penguins from MFT - for some reason I can't resist penguin images!

The first card features one of the penguin images from the Sweet Holiday Penguins Stamp Set and the tree from the Holiday Penguin Stamp Set, both by MFT.   

The images have been coloured with Copic Alcohol Markers and die cut using the matching dies.  Glossy Accents by Ranger has been added to the baubles.  The scalloped circle die is also by MFT (Stitched Mini Scalloped Edge Frame - Circle).  The sentiment is an old wooden blocked sentiment (apologies I don't remember the make).  

The second card features several images from the Holiday Penguin Stamp Set by MFT.  

Again the images have been coloured with Copic Alcohol Markers and die cut using the matching dies.   The background was created by masking off the bottom section of the card to represent snow.  I then ink blended the sky area using Hero Arts Reactive Ink (Splash).   The sentiment is an Inkylicious one (Seasons Greeting x 4) which has been heat embossed with Wow Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

Thank you for visiting and for your comments - I really do appreciate every one of them.

The Wedding Couple


I wanted to share the wedding card I recently made for my cousin's wedding.  She was due to be married earlier this year, but had to re-schedule due to Covid-19.  She managed to have the church service (with reduced numbers and no reception) earlier this month and will have another celebration with all family and friends next year (hopefully!).  This pandemic has destroyed and affected so many lives.  Here in the North-East of England we are currently under local restrictions but the cases keep rising!  

Anyway back to my card.  The image is from one of the old printed sheets that LOTV used to sell but the image is still available as a digi stamp here.

Card Supplies:
Essential Pearl Squares (Tattered Lace)
Tiny Tags Die (Lawn Fawn)
Blissful Cotton (Anna Marie Designs)
Luxury Pearl Card - Silver (Stamps by Chloe)
Sentiment (Computer Generated)
Roses (Wild Orchid Crafts)
Rhinestones and Ribbon (My Craft Box)

Thank you for stopping by and for your comment.  Hope you have a nice day and stay safe in whatever you do.

Lavish Lilies


I can't believe that it has been three months since I last posted a card on my blog.  There have been a few changes to how blogger looks too - hopefully you are seeing this!!  

I've got a very simple card to share today using the stunning Lavish Lilies stamp from My Favourite Things.  

The image is so beautiful that I kept the card very clean and simple.  I stamped the image onto white card suitable for alcohol markers and coloured it with Copic markers.  I then matted this onto black card leaving a very narrow boarder.  This was then mounted, with form tape to give dimension, onto a white card base.  The sentiment (Bitty Birthday Wishes by My Favourite Things) was stamped onto black card and heat embossed with Opaque White Super Fine Embossing Powder (WOW).  The only embellishment I added were a few jewels from the Ice Cube Mix (Little Things from Lucy's Cards).   

Copies Used
R000, R00, R30, R32, R36

New Home


We are now into a new month having spent April in Lockdown!  I have to say that some days have been better than others.  Thank goodness that I have cardmaking and crafting  - they have been a welcome distraction at times!  

Talking of cardmaking, this is a card that I made to send to a work colleague who has just bought her first house.  

The image is by Lili of the Valley - one of their mini masterpiece design sheets (Sheet 28) which have unfortunately been retired.  The good news is the image is still available as a digi stamp in the Esty shop.

The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted (Say It All).  Dies used were Inside/Outside Stitched Square Stax (MFT) and Filigree Corner (La-La-Land Crafts).  The background paper was a magazine freeby.  Ribbon and pearls were added as embellishments.  Glossy accents was added to the TV screen. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy the remainder of the weekend and keep safe.
