Totally jawsome!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

Normal service has been resumed; I'm back in my usual Friday spot!

Earlier in the week I played with the little fish from the latest MFT release and now I'm back with a bigger fish!


This guy is definitely jawsome but also really rather adorable don't you think?!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, including the lists of Copic colours and Distress Oxides I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a jawsome day!

Unicorns rock!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I hope I'm not confusing you by showing up on a Thursday, and I will be back on my usual day tomorrow as well, but I had an extra card that I couldn't resist sharing with you!


I fully admit that I have a serious unicorn addiction but really, how could I resist these awesome little guys?!


I was loving this stamp set so much that I coloured another one and popped him on a co-ordinating bookmark!


So what do you think...do unicorns rock?!

If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, including the lists of Copic colours and Distress Oxides I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a fabulous day!

Me and my Dragon

I've masked a few stamps together to make today's card from the Mama Elephant 'Me and my Dragon' stamp set.  I used a sentiment from the MFT Magical Dragons set to complement it. Dragons are meant to be scary, but this fella reminds me of Toothless from 'How to Train your Dragon'!

Happy crafting

Hoppy hoppy joy joy!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I know I don't usually pop up on the blog on a Tuesday but I had a card I just *had* to share with you and couldn't wait until Friday!

I don't know if you remember my volcano card from a few months ago (HERE if you missed it) but I just knew that I'd find more uses for the slider mechanism in it...


...and JUMP!!!...


As soon as I saw the frogs I knew this card had to happen; the slider mechanism is perfect for adding a fun interactive element.

And you know what else is perfect?  My timing, because the volcano die set which includes the slider mechanism is on offer this week - yay!

DISCLAIMER: I promise I actually had no idea it would be on offer this week when I made the card; sometimes these things just happen :-)

If you would like more pictures and info but currently no lists of Copic colours (ahem, I may have misplaced them!), then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a joyful day!

Puppy Power

Morning folks, Squirrel here today with some more animal cuteness

I brought you kitties last week, so thought it was time to share some pups



I''m afraid that the flooring is all my own fault

I could not resist the rolling over puppy, maybe it's because that's a default
position for Rosie, belly up and paws waving!

Have a super weekend everyone

Something fishy...

Hello everyone, it's Kat here!

There's been something fishy going on in my craft room this week as I couldn't resist all the fab underwater themed stamp and co-ordinating die sets in the June MFT release...and had to have them ALL!


These 3 cute fishies are from one of the sets but the others have so many other fab creatures, from crabs, to starfish and an awesome shark so do check them all out!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, including the lists of Copic colours and Distress Oxides I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a super day!

Blanche the Butterfly

I've loved the Tiny Townies images from Stamping Bella since they were first released and the new butterfly set are no exception.  This one's called Blanche and I even love her dainty hands! The folds on the dress were challenging but she didn't turn out too badly for a first attempt!  I added some white gel pen speckles on her wings and also some speckles on the sky around her although it doesn't show up well in the photograph!

New Best Friend - Pawfect Birthday

I've made a kitty card similar to the puppy version I shared a fortnight ago. I love the sentiment to go with this one!  I've kept the layout very simple to focus on the image and used a soft seam binding for texture across the top.

Brianna The Butterfly (goes tropical)

Morning all, Squirrel here, so sorry that this is a later post than usual - I fell asleep in the armchair last night and didn't have the energy to do it before bed, and this morning I had a haircut at silly o'clock.  Still, better late than never!

I have a bit of a tropical colourfest for you today


So, for this colourful little lady I have used

Hope your weekend is just as vibrant!

Hugs to all

Baby rattle card and tags

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

I'm mixing up the old and new for today's card because I had a feeling that the super cute new Hello Little One stamps from MFT would go perfectly with the baby rattle die from a while ago...was I right?!

Oh, and if you're a fan of itsy bitsy polka dots then you might like to check out the awesome background stamp I used for this card...just saying!
I've heat embossed it in white and blended Distress Oxides over the top.


I got rather addicted to this cute rattle die and decided it would also be great for making shaker tags, although I guess they are kind-of upside down because it made sense (in my head anyway!) to put the handle loop at the top!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card and tags, including the Copic colours I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!
