Fairies and Toadstools!

Hello, today I am sharing a card that has 2 of my favourite things - Fairies and Toadstools.

I decided it was time to look out my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and colour in. Sometimes we all need to escape from real life and take some time out to play. I love the Gorjuss Girl stamps and have one or two *cough* that I like to colour in.  I found a lovely piece of cardstock in my stash and decided to use the colours on it for my Fairy and the die cut toadstools. I have left a wee space at the top right corner so I can pop a sentiment onto once I decide if I can part with it lol.

I hope you like this card, and it inspires you to look out your pens and have a play!

Thinking Of You

Hello from a very sunny Glasgow! Hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend. We have had a great one so far, lots of relaxing, crafting and chocolate eating!

Today I am going to share a really quick card I made yesterday and it is also quite a clean and simple card. 

I used the Sheltering Tree set from Stampin Up.  It is photopolymer (clear) so super easy to layer up.  I made the trunk grey, then used Versa Mark for the foliage and sprinkled with pink embossing powder and used my heat tool.  I then used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some "sky".  The sentiment also comes from the set.

Thanks for visiting today, hope you like the card.x

Hi from a very wet and cold Glasgow! Today I am going to share a lovely bright card, ideal for something cheery on a day like today.

I picked out the colours in the paper and decided to colour in the "Thanks" with the matching colours. I am really pleased with the result.

Saleabration is coming to an end!

I really can't believe how quickly the Saleabration from Stampin Up has gone this time. There have been some gorgeous stamp sets, papers and embellishments to get, though I have only went for stamp sets this time. And here are a couple of cards using one stamp from one set. 

The papers I have used are Stampin' Up too, both from the same set which is called Confetti Celebration.

These cards are for my stash box, it is always handy to have a few cards put by for birthdays.  Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

"Hoppy Easter"

Hi, I've been lucky enough to have a few days crafting which resulted in an overhaul of the craft room and 3 cards in 24 hours! I know, I am in total shock!

The first card I am going to share is something different for me as it involves glitter card, not just any glitter card but Stix 2 Stardust Glitter Card which is non shed and great for people like me who are not a fan of bits of glitter everywhere.

Seeing as it is roughly a week to Easter, I thought I should make something Eastery! I bought this stamp set I used ages ago and rediscovered it in my tidy up, it's great when that happens isn't it? It is a set from MFT and comes with a selection of goodies you can stamp in the basket, so you can use it for occasions other than Easter.

I coloured it with my Promarkers, something I haven't done for a wee while.

Thanks for popping by today, I think I may have forgotten to mention my exciting news that I am now part of the Stix2 Design Team, so look out for more makes using their great products!
