Sugars Doggies

Yippeeee!! Fridaaaay!! My last shift at work for an entire 9 days. Wherever you are in the world you will probably hear me squeal with delight at the end of my shift.

Today I am sharing a very special image with you guys! 

A design brought to you by That Craft Place!

50% of all profits will be making their way to Manchester Dogs Home! I couldn't think of a more worthy cause. Plus, the digi is adorable too! :)

I coloured this cutie up to match my papers from a way old Basic Grey pack called Max and Whiskers. I really do love the orange and teal combo! 

I added an Amy R sentiment, some Papermania and Prima paper flowers, a bunch of buttons, twine, velvet trim, lace trim and some liquid pearls. I think that busy patterned paper talks for itself, but I felt like going all out with the embellishments.. when don't I?! Hah!!

Be sure to stop by and pick up your image HERE! You know it'll be worth it. Oh, and be sure to share it on your blog and with us over at FB! Get the word spread! xo

Sweet Chester!

Good morning you lovely lot! It's Thursday, so that can only mean one thing.

Inspiration Thursday for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  

I used the adorable Sweet Chester to adorn a little treat bag I created using my Cameo! I thought he'd be perfect for a whole big bag of candy canes! I coloured him in traditional colours, with a green sweater - which I added to with some green brads through the vellum snowflakes.

Cutie patooti!!

Thanks for stopping by today guys.

Sunshine and Rainbows

Yooohoo! Happy Hump Day!!

I created this card for My Mum's Craft Shop.

I used Paper Smooches - Spectrum for the entire card.

I stamped and coloured on Neenah cardstock, added a yellow mat, and bam. Done.

I hope you like this CAS card. Be sure to stop by the My Mum's Craft Shop Blog for DAILY inspiration! :) xx

Gift of the season

Morning guys! 

I've been spending the weekend getting my Christmas on, and this was one of my makes using a gorgeous new Tiddly Inks Fairy! I think I have eventually, gently, gradually started the ball rolling! I managed to get a couple more images coloured up, so I'm hoping to get those made up into cards over the coming weekend too.

So this card is for the new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers

This week the challenge is MAKE IT DIGITAL

We wanna see you use your digital products! Digi images, digi papers - whip it all up together and show us what you got!! Here's what I came up with using Willow The Greeting Fairy from Tiddly Inks.

I cut the case base and the layers on my Cameo and using both Bazzill papers and cardstock. I added a sentiment from Amy R which I stamped and embossed using Love Letter Memento Luxe. As a final touch I added some Xcut vellum snowflakes with some rhinestones and liquid pearls. Boom! 

Thanks for stopping by today guys. Be sure to stop by the blog to check out the DTs awesome makes and the prizes up for grabs for the lucky winner. xo

3D it LARGE!

Monday, Monday! This is my last week at work before my last week off for the year! I do suffer such a hard life! LOL!! 

I'm back with you all to share another commission with you all.

This card pushed me outside my comfort zone just a teeny weeny bit! I decided I would try and 3D the image! The photos are crap (as a result of my poooor photography skills), and it doesn't really manage to show how much dimension I managed to achieve with some fussy cutting, paper curling and a ton of silicone glue.

I used papers from My Minds Eye - bright and colourful was order of the day - I added a whole bunch of orange and pink goodness.

This design is *hopefully* going to live in a shadow box, so I made sure to really layer all of the elements up. For example, I created a double bow, added a ticket and then the age on top of the knot. I tucked in a bunch of paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to the little gaps after I had stitched a few buttons to the design here and there.

I love these kinda cards, with everything going on for a few reasons. 1. I get to spend loads of time faffing (my favourite bit) 2. I get to use up a tonne of stash (which I am slowly getting better at) and 3. I *hope* it sets my cards aside from the rest, from the embellishments I choose to how I lay them out on the card.

This is definitely something I'd like to try again. It's a lot more time consuming, and for a girl who takes a good few hours to just colour a standard flat image, that's a tall order - but I love how it turned out! 

I'd love to enter this card into these challenges:
- Crafting at the Weekend - Anything Goes
- Alphabet Challenge - P for Pretty Petals
- Wags 'n Whiskers - For the Girls
Kenny K - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by. xo
