Scene It Sunday #78 Featuring Five Cute Owlets Sitting On A Branch from Alex Shops Art

Good morning and Happy Sunday! Boy what a week it has been this week! We have had 5 cases of COVID in school staff this week, so we've had to change all our groups for Maths and Literacy, help out at lunch times to cover dinner duties and be testing constantly to make sure I don't have it too! So far so good though, luckily!  Anyway onto this week's card using this adorable digi stamp from Alex Shops Art on Etsy. Not sure if you have seen this store before, but do go and check it out as there are just loads of cute images!  Recipe: Stamps:  Five Cute Owlets Sitting On A Branch from Alex Shops Art  Papers: Mango Melody & Daffodil Delight both from Stampin' Up, A Hint of A Hoot Raspberry Patterned Papers & A Hint of A Hoot Teal Patterned Papers both from Paper Boutique, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Copic Markers Copics Used: Owls - W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7 Beaks, Feet & Irises - YR23, YR24 White of Eyes - BG10, BG11, Blender Branch -

Something Else on Saturday #139 Featuring Bookworm Unicorn from Pink Gem Designs

Good morning and Happy Saturday! Welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post, where I am sharing with you all one of the pages I have created for my reading journal. As my journal is purple this year, I am colouring my section dividing images mostly in purples as well.  I absolutely loved this Bookworm Unicorn digital stamp as it combines two of my favourite things - reading and unicorns! This had to be kept fairly flat to keep the notebook journal as flat as possible.  Recipe: Stamps: Bookworm Unicorn from Pink Gem Designs, Sentiment from Marci with Books from La-La Land Crafts  Papers: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather & Bride DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Copic Markers, Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen, Dusty Concord & Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks both from Tim Holtz Copics Used: Horn - V0000, V000, V01, BG0000, BG000, FBG2 Mane & Tail - V01, V05, V06, BG01, BG02, BG05 Unicorn - V0000, V000, V01,

Stampers Delights Inspiration Post Featuring Marigold

Good evening everyone and welcome to my second inspiration post for Stampers Delights this month! There is no tutorial from the team this month because Janice is holding a HUGE sale over in the Stampers Delights store, so instead we are highlighting some of our favourite stamps instead! For this card, I have used the gorgeous Marigold digi stamp , which you can find here in the store. I was in need of some sunshine (I don't do so well in the winter without my sun and warmth!), so I coloured her up in turquoise and yellow, a combo which always makes me happy!

Scene It Sunday #77 Featuring Mr McGregor from Hello Bluebird

Good Morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. This week I am using one of my adorable sets from Hello Bluebird, which I am very lucky to have. You cannot (yet) buy these in the UK but there is a seller in Germany who has a few sets that I was able to order from before Brexit kicked in! It's just a shame that they don't have many sets and none of the new ones or the dies anymore!  Anyway here's my card using these cute little bunnies enjoying the sunshine outside in their garden!  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #174 Anything Goes SheepSki Designs Challenge #58 Square Creative Knockouts Challenge #435 Something To Say Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 Anything Goes + A Sentiment CCEE Stampers Challenge New   (My stamp set has never been used before!)

Something Else on Saturday #138 Featuring Uptown Girl Ava Loves To Celebrate from Stamping Bella

Good morning and Happy Saturday! Welcome to my Something Else on Saturday post for this week! Today I am using one of my many unused Stamping Bella stamps. I love these ones and often stamp them as soon as I buy them, but then forget that I have them already stamped out! So now instead of buying new stamps (I have definitely resisted so far this year, although we're not yet a full month into it!) and am going through all my folders of stamped and printed images to use.  Anyway here is Uptown Girl Ava! I absolutely love this combo of hot pink, orange and dark brown. One of the few times I used orange outside of Hallowe'en creations!  This card is for Creatalicious Challenge #227 Anything Goes A Gem of a Challenge #2 Anything Goes A Bit More Time To Craft January Challenge Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #222 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 3 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps:  Uptown Girl Ava Loves To Celebrate fro

The Paper Shelter Challenge #494 - Colour It

Good morning everyone and welcome back to another challenge from The Paper Shelter . Both design teams have taken a much deserved break over the holiday period and are now back, starting with Team B, bringing you lots of fun and exciting challenges each week.  To start off the year easily, our first challenge of 2022 is to colour something on your card or project. You can use any medium you wish as long as we can see it has a coloured in element on your card.  I used the fabulous Rebel for my card, who I coloured with my Copic markers. I also created the background, so it looked a bit like a graffiti wall (perfect for the rebel in her!) using a stencil and my Distress Oxides inks. This card is for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Fun With Stencils Digi Choosday Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Dream Valley Challenge #261 Something New   (My stencil is new) The Corrosive Challenge #1 Anything Goes Digi Design Challenge Try/Use Something New (My stencil is new!)

All Things Magical and Mythical #20 Featuring Fairy Tales from Holly Durr

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. This week I am sharing the front cover of this year's reading journal that I have made. It is basically the same as last year's with a few changes for the pages inside. I make my own one as I cannot find exactly what I want in a published version. At least this way I know I will use it. I used last year's all the time and loved being able to see all the books I had read and my quick reviews along with my ARCs (advanced reader copies) for the author's teams that I am part of! Anyway... this project uses Fairy Tales from Holly Durr which I bought from Sweet Pea Stamps many many years ago before they closed down. Shamefully, I have never used this image before, but it worked perfectly for this year's reading journal's cover! And a close up of her hair so you can see the purple highlights better...

Scene It Sunday #76 Featuring Lucky Ducks from Time For Tea Designs

Good morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. I am still keeping up with my new year's crafty goal for using my new stamp sets or unused digi images and for today's card I have used the adorable Lucky Ducks stamp set from Time For Tea Designs. I decided to go for yellow and black ducks and used my Scenescape dies to make this cute interactive scene. I stamped that background stamp twice and then fussy cut it out (not an easy task but worth it in the end!). Had to go for a rainbow in the background as well!  This card is for Allsorts Challenge Week 658 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #222 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #577 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 1 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #188 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Lucky Ducks from Time For Tea Designs Papers: Wild Wasabi (Retired), Marina Mist (Retired), Soft Sky (Retired) & Basic White all from Stampin' Up
