I thought the brand new maze themed collection from MFT would be perfect for a Fathers' Day card, but I can see it being great for so many other occasions too and can't wait to create more a-maze-ing designs with it - lol!
For this card I used one of the plastic mazes inside a shaker pouch and you can even get the teeny metal ball to pop inside...it's so cute!
If you would like more details on how I created this card, including more pictures, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.
I'm doing a little Happy Dance today with this cutie from Stamping Bella. She comes in a pack of 2 images (a large and a smaller version) and the sentiment. I stamped the smaller image on the insert to match the outside.
I made this card only yesterday morning with the purchases I made at DtDF the day before in Telford - so I broke my record for using new stash the fastest.
There is a 'meaning' behind the choice of images on this card - when Jack was very small he and John would play a game where Jack would say Dog and John would reply Doggie - they would do this repeatedly and for some strange reason they thought it was so funny - the best bit for me was hearing them laugh so much together - so when I saw this set of stamps I just knew I had to have them!!!
John also used to play both the drums and the guitar (not both at the same time lol!!!)
So, you've seen the Whimsy Stamps Release this month, right? It is absolutely crammed full of gorgeousness, including these two penguins. Even penguins need a holiday...
Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you get up to.
If you are local to Telford, I will be demonstrating with Copics for Dies to Die For at Create it, so pop by and say hi :) I know exactly how many goodies Tracy and Andy pack into the van, so it's well worth a visit if you can make it!
Hey everyone it's Elaine, back more inspiration today here on the Dies to Die For blog. Do not panic, do not adjust your screens, today I'm sharing a non-Stamping Bella card! Ha!
I am a sucker for cute, and I have a serious thing for hedgehogs, so the MFT Stamps Happy Hedgehogs stamp set is a firm favourite. I also have a new fixation - creating cute card backgrounds like the one below.
Adorable, isn't it? That cute hedgie, and the little mushrooms/toadstools. I just cannot... I had so much fun colouring this with my Copic markers.
and I have been playing with my fabulous MFT Die-namics Birthday Candles again - perfect for those pesky male cards - and this weekend I needed a plethora of them as it was two of my sons birthdays - 1 on Saturday and the other on Sunday!
Woohoooo, I'm so excited about my card today because it's included in the latest issue of Papercraft Essentials (issue 147) which was out last week. The whole Dies to Die For DT are promoting the lovely new Stamping Bella images available and I used this image called Huggy Squidgie which is really sweet and great for a 'friend' card. I hope you like it, and if you get the mag, check out the other DTDF DT cards on pages 55 to 58. :0)
I've opted for not one, but two of the cutest dragons around for my cards today. I watercoloured them both in pink and purple, but swapped the colours around on each one. The sentiments come from the MFT stamp set and are available from Dies to Die For as are the stitched cloud dies.
