Pamper Yourself

Hi Everyone,

Finally got here today, we have our granddaughter for the night and she has only just settled down the little monkey !

Today I am sharing the card I have made for our daughter's birthday tomorrow using Digistamp Boutique's 'Alyssa Relaxing'


I decided a while ago I was going to use this image when my daughters birthday come around as it is a bit of a standing joke that she spends half her life in the bath Lol
Then this morning the Dr Digi newsletter popped into my inbox with this new 'Bubbles' paper and it seemed meant to be ....
Any regular visitors to my blog may have noticed a lack of lilac/purple makes well to be honest this is the first time I have ever coloured in those colours so it was a bit out of my comfort zone...I tend to stick to pinks, greens and reds...but I had the lush purple ribbon and of course then found this paper so I put my big knickers on and gave it a go hehehe I'm quite happy for a first attempt though.
I added a computer generated sentiment, some pearls and also some stickles on the bath bubbles.

Karate Sammy

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, the weather has certainly picked up :)

I have another male card to show you today, this time for a teen boy. I made this one for my friends son who is just becoming a teenager. I was struggling with ideas for his card as he isn't into football and I have made him skateboard related cards the last couple of years so didn't want to do another. Then up popped on facebook some photos my friend posted of him in his new karate kit and straightaway I knew which image I was going to use...DigiStamp Boutique's 'Karate Sammy'


The numbers are cut using a Stampin Up die, I stacked 2 black layers together and then coloured a white set bright red to match the brick and slightly offset them to get the shadow. I did the same with my new MFT Stitched Alphabet which I have been waiting to come back in stock for months since I saw them on Kat's card here and fell in love with them :)

Bye for now,

Harry Fishing

Hi Everyone,

I have a lovely free weekend for crafting ahead of me so hoping to get quite a bit done, probably mainly Christmas themed as I am way behind on that front :)

The card I'm sharing this time though is a male birthday card using 'Harry Fishing' from DigiStamp Boutique.


I coloured him with Promarkers and matted him onto some black card, the backing papers are a digi download from Cuddly Buddly which I matted onto kraft, the scrim was from Ribbon Girl I think and the sentiment is Clearly Besotted.

I am entering this into the DigiStamp Boutique monthly challenge here

Bye for now,

Fairy Sparkle

Hi Everyone,

Well I didn't quite make it before midnight but I wanted to share a fairy card I made over the weekend, I used some freebie stamps from a recent magazine.


I started by inking a strip of hammered card with distress inks - Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserve. I then stamped 2 of the fairies from the set in Memento Onyx, the little can of fairy dust is a separate little stamp. I layered the strip onto a slightly larger strip of black card which I then mounted on my card. All I needed to do then is stamp the lovely sentiment from the set and add some little clear gems. You can't really see in the photo but I also added Wink of Stella to the fairy's wings and the fairy dust, it really sparkles IRL.

That's all for now,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Xmas Bobbi

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well, I have a Christmas card to show you today using a DigiStamp Boutique image called 'Bobbi with Tree'


I coloured him with Promarkers and added red stickles glue to the baubles on the tree. The papers are really old freebie ones that I found while looking for something else recently. Dies used are Memory Box Snowflake Corners and Clearly Besotted Snowflakes.

Thats all for now

Blossom

Hi Everyone,

Well I finally got here Lol....last week was one of those weeks where I was chasing my tail the whole time, trying to get orders finished, looking after my grand-daughter who also stayed with us for 3 nights too as her mum went away with friends. I have definitely lived up to my blog name recently and been visiting/commenting on your lovely blogs at 3am !

Anyway now I am finally here I will get on and show you my card



I used a lovely Wee Stamps digi 'Blossom', I coloured her with my promarkers and mounted her onto one of my last little pieces of this gorgeous sage green card which I bought years ago now from ebay and I have never found this colour since :(  I also used some of my new Anna Marie paper. The striped ribbon was rescued from a flower basket I received and I just added twine, flowers, charm and pearls from my stash. Sentiment was a Nitwits magazine freebie ages ago and I stamped it in Memento 'Pistachio' to match the green card and papers, I did stamp it in black at first but it was too harsh I thought.

Thats all for now, I will be back later today with a Christmas card !

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Thanks to a heads up from Mrs A I'm entering this card into her Butterfly Challenge
