Just because I can....

Hi everyone,

Not all my design teams are back from the Christmas break yet, so I have had a bit of spare time and  made another card for fun.

I coloured up London Tilda when it was pouring down with rain, its funny how the weather can affect what image you colour.

The gorgeous papers are from the Lemoncraft Gossamer Blue paper pad.

The star along the edge of the card is a Joy die which I have cut once in white card and a second time in some of the paper to give it some depth.

The pretty view die cut is a Little Darlings die and in the bottom left hand corner is an umbrella die cut which is a Magnolia Doohickeys die.

The papers, flowers, lace, ribbon, cheesecloth, pom pom trim and pearls are from the Ribbon Girl. Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Coat, Boots and Umbrella: Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, Black Soot

Well that's it from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Another Card Coloured for Fun!

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend. It has been rather cold here this, but it's just how I love a wintry day to be. Hard frost, clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine. 

I thought I would share another card that could be used for valentines day. 

This is Tilda with Spring Heart which I have coloured with my DI reinkers.

The heart is cut from a Marianne die, tucked beneath is some cheesecloth. The gorgeous red rose, rolled rose and berries are from the Ribbon Girl and I've added a touch of gesso here and there.

Most of the products I have used are from my stash, but where I can I have put some links at the bottom of this post.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress and Ribbons: Pumice Stone
Heart: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick
Socks: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper

Well that's it from me today.

Hope you all have a great week.

A Card Made for Fun

Hi everyone,

I am just popping in to share a quick post for a card I made for fun recently.

This is Tilda Enjoying Summer. Summer isn't here just yet, but I love this Tilda. I have coloured her with Distress Ink reinkers and tried out a new colour combo on her dungarees. I have listed the colours I used below the pic.

The papers are from a Crafts For You paper pad called Vintage Time, aren't they gorgeous?

Once again I have used lots of Joy dies on this card, please see the bottom of this post to be taken directly to the product (just click on a picture).

I have made another of the gorgeous Fomairan flowers, and used the tool set to help shape them. They can be found at the Ribbon Girl, unfortunately I can't link the white foamiran in the usual way, but I have placed a link further down the page.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs
Dungarees: Bundled Sage, Hickory Smoke
Blouse and Pocket: Victorian Velvet
Shoes: Hickory Smoke

Here is the link for the white foamiran

Well that's it from me.

Thank you for looking.

Take care.

Reminder Card for the Paradise of Stamps (Anything Goes)

Good morning everyone,

I hope you had a good week and weren't affected too much by the snow. We had a blizzard for a couple of hours, but sadly it didn't stay for long, I love the snow so was a little disappointed. Today it is pretty gloomy and pouring down with rain. 

Anyway on with today's card today which is a reminder card for the current 'Anything Goes' challenge at 

I have coloured up a Little Darlings Candibean stamp called Rosie Bear, with distress reinkers, she  is so cute. I decided to make her into a shaker card and used red heart confetti inside the shaker.

The flowers are from my stash and the leaf die is a Rosy Owl die.Placed on top of one of the leaves on the bottom right hand side is a bronze heart charm.

The red beaded cherry and the guipure lace are from the Ribbon Girl.

GDT card for Alicia Bel

Good morning everyone,

This morning,  I am popping in to share a GDT card I made for the lovely Alicia Bel.

This little beauty is called 'Shy' and she can be found here.

I coloured her with distress inks, I had wanted to colour her softly, but got a bit heavy handed, sadly  I didn't have time to re-do her.

The papers are from the Gossamer Blue paper pad by Lemoncraft.

I have cut three of my favourite Joy dies, Open heart with Butterfly die, Flower Frame and Lattice Border die.

  The tassels are made from a Marianne die and I've hooked them onto a wine glass charm which was a gift from a lovely crafty friend.

I made the pink flower myself using foamiran, rosy owl flower die, flower tools and some stamens, the rest of the flowers are from my stash.

The paper pad,  foamiran, tools, stamens, pearl string, and paper pad are from the Ribbon Girl.

I have put the links to the materials (apart from the image, see above for the link) that I can at the bottom of this post, just click on  a picture to be taken directly to the product.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot
Dress and Headband: Stormy Sky, Black Soot, Tumbled Glass,
