Amber in the Arbour

Hello everyone!
Today I'm using one of my favourite Saturated Canary Stamps from  LDRS Creative.
This beautiful girl is Amber, from the Sweet N Sassy range. Doesn't she just have the sweetest expression?

I coloured her with my distress ink markers to match these pretty Maja Design papers from the Coffee in the Arbor collection, and gave her light golden brown hair.

I fussy cut the image and added back some of the butterflies I lost with this memory box die.

and just to prove that even us DT girls aint perfect, I've just noticed that one of the large pearl embellishments I used had slipped while drying and is now wonky! Ooops. Oh well, we'll say it adds to the charm and leave it at that ;) 
That's all from me today, have a wonderful weekend :) xx

Hi everyone!

Unfortunately I missed my post last Friday, so I'm posting today instead.

I made a card using the delightful Skippydee, one of Elisabeth's older Little Cottage Cuties collection from Whimsy Stamps.
I coloured her with my distress ink markers to match some pretty Pion Design papers. As usual I have links at the end of my post.

Isn't she pretty?  I decided to keep to quite pale colours after yesterdays brights. All my layers are edged with Walnut Stain distress ink.

I layered with some dies cuts for interest and texture.

I finished the inside with some more paper from the collection.

That's all from me today, I'll see you again here on Friday! :) xx

Nancy with Sunflowers

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

I don't know where this last week has gone. One minute it was Moody Monday (come on, tell me you don't feel a little grumpy on a Monday morning?!) and the next time I looked it was Fank Goodness it's Friday Evening, and somehow, I hadn't done half the things I should or wanted to have done.

Anyhoo, today I am sharing a little Easel Card. I adore Easel Cards right up to the point I need to try and get a decent photo of them. Eeeeurgh. This is Roberto's Rascals Nancy with Sunflowers. She's from the September Release at C.C.Designs

I can't work out if I like Nancy and her lovely Sunflowers, or her cute little friend the most...

The leaf and fence dies are from La-La Land and will be available in the shop soon.

That's all from me today, I hope you have a fb & crafty weekend! :) xx

Strawberry Dreamer, (with added raspberries).

Happy Friday everyone!
Linda here with an Elisabeth Bell stamp today. This is one of her older images from the Cottage Cuties collection.

This is called Strawberry Dreamer, isn't she lovely?
I didn't have any paper with strawberries on, so I pulled this Maja Design paper out of my stash that had raspberries on, close enough right? :P

Anyway, I love the way this turned out and hope you will too.
Products are linked at the end of my post.

That cute strawberry charm goes really well with this stamp I thought!

That's all folks, see you next time!

Dies and Digi's..a winning combo!

Images- Farm Background and Tom Sawyer.
Morning everyone!

A few dies and some yummy paper from the DTDF shop were needed to finish off my little scene with some 3D Lou poppage so I pinched a few of my favs off my die wall and got to work with some scrap pieces of card in my card box. Edge dies are sooooo cool for that!! I love the little grassy edge and super cute little rolling hills fence!

And that cute lil mushroom in my card floof..yu can get that from the shop too!! they are HERE!!

Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today, and I'm sharing the final card in my Blommin' Lovely Trio!

This was quite a labour intensive card for me, what with all the stamping, die cutting and sticking together of various layers, but I am pretty happy with how this one turned out. That said, I'm missing my colouring, so, I think I'll get back to that next week!

Some Bunny Loves You

Hello everyone! I'm snaking in today with a little extra inspiration to share with you.

Well It finally happened, I gave in and joined the latest craze.

Shaker cards, they're everywhere right? So I grabbed this little fellow Somebunny Loves You from the Saturated Canary - It's a Spring Thing collection and inked him up. I have to say he really was super fast and easy to colour.

A die cut a fuse pocket and tool and some sequins later and I had the base elements for my shaker card. Add some design paper, some cardstock and a few simple embellishments and voila, one card, shaken not stirred.
I've linked the products used at the end of my post.

I hope you all had great weekends! I am in today to show you my latest DT make using the gorgeous I heart you stamp by Mo Manning for Stamping Bella. She is just too gorgeous and I love her!

I stamped her onto some white hammered card I had lying around on my craft desk because I wanted a bumpity look to her skin!! and oh my! she goes so well with those delicious MME papers..which is great..because one day I will learn to colour to my papers instead of colour up my image then rumfle around for 30 mins trying to find the right papers?!!! lo!!!!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today with the second in a trio of cards I made featuring a little slice of sunshine, which is a good thing, as the weather certainly is not providing any Vitamin D at the moment!

I had fun flinging the glitter around while I made this. Talking of flinging things around, Tracy has been very busy this week flinging all the lovely new deliveries into Store. Yep, that's new stuff. In Store. Just sayin'...

The beauty of memory

Sympathy cards.....
I find them very difficult to make, for several reasons. Apart from the obvious of not really being a pleasurable thing to make, generally they don't really gel with my normal style.  I really don't think they suit being frilly, highly layered and embellished etc. So this week when I'd been struggling to come up with a design for a card that really should already have been sent to a friend, I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration.

I found the answer, and it only cost me 3 hours of my life lol! Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship, I  love that it's so full of ideas, I hate that it's so full of ideas that it sucks me in and gets me looking at stuff I never even intended to when I stuck my head in there!

Anyway I found a card, and while it's a stunning beautiful and simple elegant card, it wasn't quite me, and I didn't have the right dies and stamps for it. But I used it as my inspiration for the card below. While I was there I also spotted the sentiment I used as I have NO stamps with suitable sentiments on (something I must address), and I used the word processing facility on Open Office to type it out and re-size it just right to fit on my card. That sentiment made me think to use the Crea Diem paper from Maja with the clocks, and then I was off and running. The result is below.

Linda :) xx
