hope your birthday is a ...

So pleased with these, love these stamps, so many elements. I have lots of new goodies and this is just the beginning.  So Lawn Fawn Year Seven Stamps, paper from Nitwit Collections, coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched and a couple of gems to finish.  I have made them as sliders, so one penny on the inside just for the weight, I don't want them to spin as you would expect and then foam tape for spacing.

Gnome-body loves you ...

I have a shaker frame card today (I think that is what it is called anyways)!  So cut the frame and front cover on my Silhouette, stamped the gorgeous Lovey Gnomes from Stamping Bella, coloured with Promarkers, you can't see it but the shaker has pink & red heart confetti and some lush sparkle gems.  Squiggly hand stitch for a change, pearls, some dies from a couple of the Doohickey Club kits, green card cut to look like grass, covered in the lovely green ribbon, heart charm to finish.

The inside has the sentiment included in the Lovey Gnomes; gnome-body loves you the way I love you.  I have cut a spiral pop up heart from the Silhouette Design Store.

YOU ARE Magical ...

Another watercolor background for you. still need more practice & I think more patience ha ha.  This stamp is called 'A Fish Kisses Tilda' from the 'You're invited' Collection just released which was part of the Christmas Advent 2017 Box which I was very lucky Father Christmas sent to me.  I have coloured her with Promarkers, cut some weed and vellum waves on my Silhouette, sequins, sentiment and some glossy accents & of course hand stitching to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -

Thanks so very much ...

Well I have been playing with water colour backgrounds, most didn't make the grade but a couple I was kinda pleased with, including this one.  More practice me thinks, something a bit different from my norm.  I have used the gorgeous stamp set titled;  Stinkin Cute from Lawn Fawn which includes the skunk, flower & heart among other little bits & bobs, so much fun, along with the Scripty Thanks also from Lawn Fawn which I have layered up several times for the depth.   Vellum, sequins, gem for the centre of the flower, hand stitched to finish.  Of course coloured with Promarkers.

Fintastic Birthday ...


Another shaker card (front view) to share with you today, treated myself to a few goodies at LOTV & their half price sale recently.  Thought I would give these little critters a go & super fun to colour.  The reflection of the camera has made it look like it really full of water!

I wanted the sand to stay at the bottom so I cut a shaker to suit but as you can see I have a gap where the sand has escaped a little with all my shaking!
This is the inside view.

The fish food has been cut on my Silhouette.  Sand is from Porto Santo, fabulous colour & happy memories.  Front sentiment is CG but the 'make a splash' is part of the collection.  Fabulous rubber too, good quality.  Coloured with Promarkers & pencils.  Hand stitched, dew drops  & accents.

Joy ... to the world

Well I have gone for an elegant simple understated look for this Christmas card, makes a change & I am really pleased with the result, a pleasure to make too.

I have used the 'Softly Falling' embossing folder from Stampin Up.  Several different snowflake dies, the 'Joy' die is also from Stampin Up and part of the 'Wonderful Wreath Framelit dies (135851) and was cut from Crafters Companion Glitter luxury card along with the Mirror Luxury card.
A couple of vellum snowflakes & a few of acetate snowflakes cut on my Silhouette as they
didn't cut very well on my Big Shot.  Not forgetting some hand stitching, well it wouldn't be me would it.  Gems & sequins to finish.

Sending Heaps of Holiday Wishes ...

Today I have been playing with this gorgeous Stamp from Art Impressions titled 'Penguin Stacker' it is soooo cute. I ordered it in the January sales online but it never appeared until July?  Good job I wasn't in a rush for it, ha ha.  Nice & simple again today as I wanted the image to speak for itself.
I have coloured with Promarkers, snowflakes, Nitwit papers & hand stitched once again.
