Something Else on Saturday #30 Featuring Whoo To You from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to my 30th Something Else on Saturday post! This week I am sharing the adorably cute Whoo To You owl stamps from Clearly Besotted. I used lots of my Hallowe'en dies to create this scene to make it look like the owls were off trick or treating (or tweeting as they say!)

Scrapper's Delights DT Special Deals for October

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for this month'sDT Specials deals from Scrapper's Delights. These deals are an amazing way to see a range of different images from the Scrapper's Delights store at amazing prices too.

I chose to use the adorable Helpful Elfand went for a Christmas card for a change from all the Hallowe'en cards I am making at the minute. I kept this card fairly flat so I have a few ready for posting out during the Christmas season. I always colour elves in red and green, so hunted for some patterned papers and I think I have finally used up this pack of old papers from years ago!

Something Else on Saturday #29 Featuring Garden Mice from Newton's Nook

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I saw a card a while ago using this adorable stamp set, so added it to my birthday wish list and my lovely boyfriend bought it for me (even though he hates buying me craft stuff for some reason!).

I wanted to create a cute garden scene using all of the different mice images, but stamped the mouse and butterfly too high off the toadstool, so had to cut them all out and I think they still look cute without a Copic coloured background.

Scrapper's Delight VIP Chibi New Release

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for the new releases from Scrapper's Delights. This month the new releases are all  gorgeous and I am sharing one of the new Zodiac images again - this time Scorpio. She reminded me a lot of a sci-fi movie/tv show character, so I kind of went for a starry theme!

I attempted to do a striped, blended sort of background to the image as she was sitting on some space rocks and then added a star with the Scorpio symbol over the frame. I then added the qualities labels round the edge separately as I did the banner. Everything is covered with a fine layer of Crystal Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir as well, which gives a little shimmer to everything, but I'm not sure that picked up in the photos.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Hallowe'en Tomte Gnome

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink! I have been a bit MIA recently - getting back into work caused my mojo to go AWOL for a while and then we had the lovely(!) Ofsted inspectors in as well, which is always stressful and a busy time! But I am now back! Hopefully with a vengeance too!

Anyway here is today's card using this fabulous image from the Hallowe'en Tomte Gnome Bundle.

Something Else on Saturday #28 Featuring Jukebox and Milkshake from Moonlight Whispers

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I think my mojo has finally returned after disappearing for the last month or so and hopefully you will be seeing a few more posts throughout the week as well!

Today is my aunt's 50th birthday party so I made this card for her as it is her to a T! This stamp is Jukebox and Milkshake from Moonlight Whispers - I just love Annie Rodrigue's images ever since I discovered them through Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps years ago! So glad she is now selling them as digis as you cannot buy KKS stamps over here in the UK really at all anymore 😢

Anyway here she is...I tried to do a checkered floor but my angles are way off and it looks like she's sloping down, but never mind! My aunt won't notice I'm sure! Definitely a technique to practise though!

Ghostly Greetings!

Good morning! Today I have another Hallowe'en card for you - there might be many more to come as well as I just love Hallowe'en so end up making heaps of Hallowe'en cards, whether I use them or not!

Today's card is my first one using my new set from Lawn Fawn - Halloween Houses.I attempted to make a small village in the hills scene with a few children trick or treating, but probably should have added a few more now I look back at it - might do that later!

Whimsy Stamps Penguin Spook Nite

Good morning and welcome to my post for today. I am sharing a Hallowe'en scene I have coloured and created which will be added to my Hallowe'en decorations for this year. We always decorate our front room with various Hallowe'en things we have bought or that I have made every year along with our collection of carved pumpkins that we go out and pick!

I completed the August Colouring Class from My Creative Scoop with Mindy Baxter using the Penguin Spook Nite digital stamp from Whimsy Stampsand then added it to a  punched out base and added lots of patterned papers and dies! I did add a flap to the back so I can stand up, so really it is a huge card, but not one for sending or giving out! It measures 8.5 inches square!

Something Else on Saturday #27 Featuring Edna loves Chocolate from Stamping Bella

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! Today, I am sharing a fun card I made using one of the stamps that my boyfriend bought me for my birthday back in July. I love these Edna fairy stamps from Stamping Bella and I love my chocolate (although being on a diet at the moment means I haven't had a proper bar for weeks now!), so this stamp just called my name!

i used one of my Dutch Doobadoo card art templates for the card shape and got a bit carried away with my Nuvo Crystal Drops, but I love them! can't have enough of them! LOL
