Happy Dance

I'm doing a little Happy Dance today with this cutie from Stamping Bella.  She comes in a pack of 2 images (a large and a smaller version) and the sentiment.  I stamped the smaller image on the insert to match the outside.

James Cheers

This is the Father's Day card that I made for my FIL featuring James the Bear.  I know it's cute, but hopefully still counts as sufficiently masculine!  I used a retired rubber stamp for my card but the image is now available as a digi stamp instead, so you can still get your paws on him.

Happy Father's Day

It's Father's day and I've got the first of the two cards I've made. Masculine cards are not my 'thing' but hopefully this is acceptable!  I've been playing with some of my Gerda Steiner rubber stamps this week, but this one is a digi.

You Did It

'Congratulations' are the order of the day with my final 'new release' sample card featuring 'You Did It' from Lili of the Valley.

It's also congratulations because I've added a couple of sequins for the first time ever on one of my cards (I think)!  I've had a huge pack of them for ages.  There must a thousand of them at least in the packet.  Although I've debated several times whether to use them or not, I've always previously chickened out.

6 used, 994 left to go.   :0)

Brainy Books

I've got another of my samples from the new Lili of the Valley release.

This one is called 'Brainy Books' and I think it is quite gender neutral.

Apart from the cuteness, purple accents and little pearls.

Ok, I'm probably pushing it on the masculine front here, but at least I've kept the design quite simple!

Berry Wryn

We're getting fruity at As You Like It Challenge this week and wanting to know what your favourite fruit is.  I've always loved strawberries; along with the yummy taste, they remind me of summer and picking them straight from the garden and eating them before they even make it back up to the house!

You're Koalafied for a Hug

I've been playing with a stamp set that I've had for a while but not used.  It's a Gerda Steiner set featuring some cute koala bears and matching sentiments.

Bedtime Stories

I'm so proud to be sharing my project with you today as a guest designer for Crealies.

I've been a fan of Crealies for a long time, especially the large nesting dies and box templates which make cute little gift boxes so easy to make.

But today, I'm sharing a card and matching bookmark tag made with a range of gorgeous products.

On my card I've used one of my favourite circle nesting dies which come in extremely generous sizes to suit all cards without squashing the space around the image.  I also love that it's got a pierced edge which gives it fantastic texture.


I've also used two 'on the edge' dies, one to shape the card base, and the other to create a banner for my ribbon strip.  Again both of these have stitched or pierced edges which give a fantastic finish to the die-cut edge.

I've used a beautiful layered flower die set which I've chalked to add more dimension and combined it with a large pearl in the centre.

The image is 'Bedtime Stories' from Lili of the Valley and I've also made a matching bookmark tag using my large Crealies tag die which also has pierced edge texture.  The tag is really large, and you can see it measured up against the card which, like most of my card bases, is 6x6.

Finally, I've used a fantastic background stamp from Crealies called 'stones' behind the teddy bear to make it look like he's propped up against a wall.  I masked the bear and stamped the bricks either side of him in a pale grey water-based ink. I then my paintbrush to give the stones some detail with some more ink afterwards.

I hope you like my project and thank you again to Annelies and Ingrid for the opportunity to showcase my card on the Crealies blog.

Believe in Fairies

Today's image is called I Believe in Fairies from Lili of the Valley.  I've used a lovely Crealies flower die set and popped a pearl star in the middle to match the stars in the image.
