Beautiful Bloom Card Kit - My Favorite Things

Hello peeps

Today I'm sharing a card that I made use the Beautiful Bloom Card Kit I purchased from My Favorite Things a few weeks ago. 
I've been in a bit a crafting funk with my mojo going on holidays without me lol so I decided to make a birthday card with the kit because it has everything you need and you don't have to think too much and I must say it has me itching to create again which is ideal.

The background paper is one that I made awhile ago with distress oxides.

I coloured the flower with Copic Markers

YR61, 01, 65, 02, 27.

The Kit came with Card Stock, Flower Stamp, Sentiment Stamp Set, 'Beautiful' Die and Flower Die.

Even though having these kits shipped from America can be pricey they are worth it, I love it.

Thanks MFT for helping to get me out of my crafting funk

This card is for a very special little girl, I hope it brightens her day.

Dimension Dimension Dimension!! Tiddly Inks Challenge #219

Hello :)
Today's post is a Tiddly Ink Challenge post for November and the challenge is all about Dimension, so think pop up makes or using mounting tape or sliders anything that pops out.

I took this pic before I had the candy canes in the chimney, not a great photo but it shows the 'shape' of the card better. 

I got the idea for this card after seeing a similar one a friend had made with the box (aka chimney) with a lid on it which was super cute, she got the idea from a Stampin Up catalog. I adjusted to suit my 'Christmas roof' idea. It was so much fun to make.

I coloured the Tiddly Inks images with Copic Markers

Set of Four Christmas Cards - Make it Crafty

Hello fellow crafters :)

How are you going with your Christmas Cards this year?? Can you believe it's November already? Well I've got four quick Christmas Cards that might inspire you to make some homemade cards for your friends and families.

I chose to use these cute little Elves from Make it Crafty

I went through my scrap Christmas papers and found four different patterns then cut them to size, added some distress oxide (Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemon and Peeled Paint) with an ink blender to the right side of the cards then squirted it with a little water to get some texture, cut some green and red plain card stock into strips and placed it on top of the patterned paper, coloured the elves, fussy cut them and mounted them with dimensional tape, glued the Chipboard Words in place and finished the card with some sequences.

They really are quite simple to make, I had them lined up in a production line. So no excuses, I want to see your Christmas Cards soon :)

Knock Knock 2

Hello Peeps :) Hoping you are all well today.

I have another Knock Knock card today for my little friend battling cancer. I hope these cards are giving her something to smile about.

It's a dual DT card using the door from the Balconies, Doors & Windows Elements Collection from Make it Crafty and Monkey Around from Tiddly Inks.


I arranged the door and monkey digital images in Microsoft Word and added the text then printed, coloured it with Copic Markers and sponged some Stormy Sky Distress Oxide around the edges.

Doors - B23 & B45

Monkey - E31, 35, & 57

Vines - YG03 & YG !7

Nothing difficult in making this card but my wish for this card is to bring a smile to a little girls face who's going through things a child shouldn't even know about.

Sending love and healing wishes

I coloured the images with Copic markers and polychromos pencils.

Knock Knock!!

Hello Friends :)

The card I'm sharing today is for a special little girl who's currently in hospital fighting a battle a child should never have to go through  :(  so I thought (with the help of some special friends) I'd make a card to brighten her day and what's better then a Knock Knock joke to make you smile??

This is the first of the Knock Knock joke cards I'll be sending to this little girl, I don't know how else I can help her.

I coloured the images with Copic Markers but unfortunately I didn't keep track of the ones I used, sorry. It was an emotional card to make and I just didn't think. 

Here's hoping she has a giggle or two

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon with some more jokes ;)

Sk8tr - Boys, Boys, Boys - Tiddly Inks Challenge

G'Day :)

Today's post is a dual DT post using Urban Streets Collection from Make it Crafty and Sk8tr from Tiddly Inks. I coloured the background first and thought it looked pretty cool without colour on Sk8tr but then changed my mind and was going to go with bright colours although I still wasn't convinced, so I messaged the boss lady 'Zoe' to get her opinion and it was decided to go with my first instinct and to add some cast shadows for some depth and drama.

It's a new month which means a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks and the challenge is BOY'S BOY'S BOY'S!! 

So here it is I hope you like it.

Coloured with Copic Markers, Distress Oxide and Ranger Paint Dabber.

Back Wall and Dark Shadow - Black 100

Road - T7

Sidewalk and Bricks - T3, T5

Cast Shadows on Sk8tr - T5

I blended the Distress Oxide around the central image.

I used the Ranger White Paint Dabber for the base layer on the Birthday word and for the Alpha letter for the 'BOY' word. I used the Black 100 Copic Marker for the top layer of the Birthday word.

Thanks for stopping by
