Santa's Naughty List?

Hi everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Now just hold your horses right there! Just because there's a Father Christmas holding his Naughty List on this card, doesn't mean it's a That Thing on 25 December We Don't Mention Card. Oh no. Have you stopped to consider he might be looking at the Self Assemble Instructions that came with the Sleigh he just bought from Ikea? Ha!!   

Talking of  Naughty Lists... Have you been paying attention to the Dies To Die For Store this weekend? OMG. Sale. Bargains. New Stuff. Not necessarily in that order. Just sayin' ;)

Stamp- Freddie.
Papers- Bo Bunny dots.

Morning everyone!

Lou in with a make using one of those gorgeous new Wee Stamps rubber stamps. OOOOOH I loved them all but just had to get Freddie and Rudolph as my little Mo neeeeeeeed them...and I of course had to quality control test them for him...he he he he!!!

I made myself a shaped card using my  Die Namics Blue Prints 9. I used the little tab joining bit normally for the bottom to attach the tops of the tag shapes together and then just trimmed off the edges with my scissors.

Thank you for popping in

Stay away from the cake!

Hi Everyone, it's Mogwai Faye here today :)

You remember Mogwai from The Gremlins? They start out as these little adorable, cute, fluffly little gopher type things. Then. You add water. Well. I'm not saying I'm a Gopher. But. Something does happen to me when I get near cake. That's all I'm saying today...

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

And I have loads to tell you. First up... MISTI Tool, coming soon. Peeps are going nuts for this fab tool. Just sayin'! Pre-order yours now...

If cute animals are more your thing, we've got that covered too...


Puppies. Sorted. And. These adorable sentiments come in the same stamp set!

Ok, I'm going before you hit me. Laters!

Valerie with pup........

Morning all!

I am multi tasking this morning with some Mo Manning cuteness!! I am uber happy because Tracy stocks the rubber versions of this little Valerie with Pup in the shop.

I absolutely adore poor Bronte's ears popping out of that snow on this stamp! its just too cute!! and perfect for so many occasions, like a wintery hello card, a wintery birthday or a christmas card.

I have gone for sentimentless for now because I am not sure which occasion this one is going to go for!!! lol!! but oh my was she fun to play with!! and how delicious are those  Bo Bunny Blitzen collectionpapers??? I love them. I've been sooo careful with them on my last few projects trying to use up every scrap of yumminess out of the pad!!

Blossom Loves Balloons CAS style

Happy Friday everyone, I hope everyone is looking forward to their weekend.

Sadly this is my last post for Dies to Die for as I'm trying to make a bit more time for family stuff and the things I need to do like house hunting. I'm very sad to leave the DT because I've been here for 2 years now and they have been the best ever. So a big thank you to the lovely Tracy, fabby DT leader Lou and all the wonderful girls on the team .

My last card is a CAS, yes, who would have thought that I'd find a little soft spot for making them. Well they are super when you're in a hurry i will say and also they are fab when you want to actually post something in an envelope. This was the card I made for my Mum's birthday, a couple of weeks back now, she'd been on  holiday and I wasn't sure she'd be at home when it was delivered, so I didn't want a parcel getting lost or her having to go and collect it, so I wanted something that would go through the letter box.

I used the adorable Blossom from the Tiny Townies collection, love this stamp. I chose bright colours cos my Mum likes cheerful things.

 I think this is about as CAS as it' possible for me to go, I had to sit down for a bit afterwards!

I raised the back layer on some foam tape added this sentiment which is sooooo my Mum if you knew her lol and finished with just few gems coloured to match with my Copics.

Sadly the whimsy sentiment stamp I used is no longer stocked, but you can find loads of fab other sentiment sets by Whimsy here.

All that's left is for me to say a sad farewell, but I'm sure I'll see you around blogland, I haven't given up crafting, I'm just cutting back and avoiding deadlines.

Take care :) xx

You're My Person.........


Good Morning......Jane here sneaking in with my make today!
I loved this sentiment from MFTs Written in Watercolour set.....reminds me of Friends when Phoebe says that Ross is Rachels lobster! 
I used my Distress Inks to make a smooshy background and then used a heart from Die-namics Pierced Heart Stax to emboss a heart in the centre.....it's not showing up that great in the photo...
Have a fabby day!

Just Beecause

Hi Everyone :)

If you don't already know this about me, today's post might give away my Dirty Secret. Yes, my name's Faye and I have a terrible Sweet Tooth.

With Halloween fast approaching, I wanted to make a Treat Basket for The Little Guy. He loves this kind of thing, although he was not best pleased when he noticed I pilfered the sweets back so I could take a photo! The Die-Namics Trapezoid Treat Box and Woven Basket Dies made light work of this project. And Your Next Stamp Smiley Happy Critter Crew provided the Cute Factor. 

Yep, I really wanted a pie when I was making this one. Thanks Your Next Stamp Waddles Sweetie Pie Stamp Set. Although it does come with a cautionary message... Bring on the Stretch Pants! You heard it here first, People ;)

Butterfly Baby Among the Stars

Hello everyone Linda here and I'm definitely having a TGIF moment, what a week it's been.

This card uses one of my favourite stamps for baby cards 'Butterfly Baby' and was made as a special order for a friend of my daughters.
As usual links are at the end of my post.

I was asked for 'neutral' colours - mint or yellow, as they don't know the sex of the baby yet. These papers are just lovely for it, and on sale too...bargain!! I coloured him/her with my distress ink markers and fussy cut them out.

A view from the side so that you can see the dimension. The moon die is from La-La Land Crafts, it was part of a club kit set, but should be released soon and I'm sure Tracy will stock it.

Merry *Cough. Splutter. Choke*

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Yes, it's coming. And it's coming fast. Tell anyone I said that, and I'll poke you. Really hard. That's the kind of girl I am. You seriously don't wanna mess with me when it comes to That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention.

So, why I am I being so festive this early on a Sunday morning? Well, Your Next Stamp made me do it. They released this rather fabby set called Christmas That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention Morning, which includes this really lovely sentiment stamp. It's so nice, I wanted to make it the focal point of a card, and the little holly sprigs that also come in this set, were a perfect little finishing touch.
In for a penny, in for a pound...
Yep, more Your Next Stamp. And some Memory Box too. Honestly, I think I need to lie down!

Snowflake Dancer

Ok so.....make sure you're sitting down....I made another Clean & Simple card. I know right?!
Those of you who are familiar with my work, will know how difficult I find these. This one was no exception, once I had the image coloured up and cut out I really struggled with it. I knew I wanted to keep it clean to showcase the beautiful drawing by Sylvia Zet but I kept feeling that I should add more. Luckily I resisted, because now it's finished I really love it.

I outlined all the clothing hair and snowflakes with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen - Clear Star. This adds a wonderful soft metallic sparkle and I wish the camera would pick it up properly, because it looks so pretty in real life,

That's all from me today but I'll be back to share more inspiration next week.
Have a lovely weekend! :) xx
