Fantasy Friday #25 Featuring Genie Marci from La-La Land Crafts

Good morning and welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post. As always I share one of my fantasy creations and this week using one of my new La-La Land Crafts digis, Genie Marci. I love these digis, but like most of my stamps, I never get round to using them as often as I would like!

Anyway...here she is. I used some old retired papers from Stampin' Up and then my previously unused Twinkle Star die from Creative Expressions, which was the perfect background for her!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #366 Digital Image

Good morning and welcome to my first DT post of the year forThe Paper Shelter Challenge. This week our challenge is for you to use a digital image and what better excuse is there than browsing the Paper Shelter store to find a fabulous new image to use in this challenge.

I used the adorable Unicornmaniato make a cute card. I used pastel colours for this one, which I hardly ever use and I really love the softness of the whole card and image together.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to this week's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post. I coloured this cutie up a while ago and never got round to adding her to a card, so her she is today. This cute mermaid is Polka Dot Pals Brittany.

I now have quite a few mermaid themed patterned papers set and I used the Let's Be Mermaids from Echo Park on this card and added some of the sticker fish as well after cutting the white edges off them as they looked odd with the white. Think they look much better now!

Fantasy Friday #24 Featuring Little Miss Deelish from Hannah Lynn

Happy Fantasy Friday! Welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post. This week I have used the gorgeous Little Miss Deelish from Hannah Lynn, which I bought as a digi stamp from Crafts and Me years ago before they closed down.

As I went for such as colourful image, I actually had a hard time finding some patterned papers that would match, so in the end I decided to just go with these black, white and pink papers to pull out those colours in the image. I think it worked pretty well though!

Whimsy Stamps Coffee Break Winter Scene

Good morning and welcome to another random post from me! I love having extra time during the holidays to just sit and colour (although I am sure I really should be doing the colouring classes I still have not yet done!), but I loved this cute image that was actually the Kit and Clowder Pencils Class image (with a different background), but I bought it with the winter background and did my own thing with the colours.

I don't use pencils and only have a set of 24 polychromos from years ago. To be honest, I don't like how pencils look as much as Copics, so have no interest in learning how to use them. I do however like a lot of the images for the pencils colouring classes, so tend to buy them and colour them up my way!

Anyway...here he is. You can't see in the photo at all, but all the snow is covered with clear Wink of Stella for an touch of shimmer. I have quite a few of these colourings now, so am going to buy some clip frames to put them all in and put them up somewhere i…

Lawn Fawn Thanks A Latte Slider

Good morning! I have another Lawn Fawn card for you again today - I have fallen in love with these cute stamps and I am also loving all the interactive dies they are releasing at the minute as well. I got the Double Slider Surprise die set in the sale, so it cost me just over £20 instead of the £26 it was originally and I just loved using it to make this card. I can't wait to make another one and have so many ideas on how it could be used!

Anyway, here is my Thanks A Latte card, another new set for me, although I'm not a coffee or tea drinker and only occasionally drink hot chocolate, I loved this set with all the added extras, like the candy canes, marshmallows and cream swirls. Next time I will add some cute faces to the cups and mugs I think!

Anyway here is the card closed. Hopefully the arrows on the pull out tabs are obvious!


And opened....

Lawn Fawn Winter Skies Christmas

Good morning! I had some spare time over the Christmas and New Year holidays and finally managed to get my hands on a copy of Winter Skies, which was completely sold out everywhere in the UK before Christmas! So anyway I made this card, ready to add to next year's Christmas card pile!

I thought I would go for lots of glittery snow on this one and added the stitched mountains and hillside borders to add to the scene. I used the colour palette from the latest Lawn Fawn challenge to colour the sky, although I did end up covering lots of it with all those mountains!

Happy New Year!

Good morning! I usually do a favourites post of all my cards of the year on New Year's Eve, but I forgot this time! So here it is today instead!

I made quite a few changes with the design teams I was on last year. I felt I was spending so much time making projects for the design teams that I lost my mojo and my love of crafting a bit. At times, it felt a bit like a chore, but I have now dropped down to three teams and have more time to do more of my own crafting which makes me much happier! I get to use the images and make the cards in my own style, rather than having to be prescriptive so often!

Anyway...

Delicious Doodles was a small DT that I was on, but unfortunately the term didn't last for long as after 12 months, Teri, the owner of Delicious Doodles, decided to close the challenge blog down. My favourite card from being on this DT was actually my last card for this DT - a Gothic wedding card! You can read more about this card here.
