All Things Magical and Mythical #7 Featuring Wizard from Tiddly Inks

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. I thought I would go more magical this week and used my wizard digi stamp from Tiddly Inks. It's an older stamp, but is still available from their etsy store in a pack of 3 images called Wizarding Days.  I realised I was getting a bit low on my boy themed card as my MIL has them all as she has something crazy like 13 grandsons and 3 great grandsons! Time to top up the pile!  Recipe: Stamps: Wizard from Tiddly Inks, Cast A Spell from Whimsy Stamps Papers: Daffodil Delight & Pacific Point both from Stampin' Up, Just For Men Patterned Papers from Crafter's Companion, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Pacific Point from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers Accessories: Stars Dies from X-Cut, Star Dust Stickles, Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops from Nuvo Copics Used: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 Hair - E11, E15, E17, E18, E19 Eyes - B02, B04, B06 Jeans - B93, B95, B97, B99 S

Good morning and Happy Sunday! I love Sundays as they are my crafting day when I can get all my stuff out and craft the whole day away without worrying about the housework or school work!

Something Else on Saturday #122 Featuring Micing on Top from Di's Digi Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. This week, after my first full week back at school, teaching my new class of 7 year olds, I definitely could do with some gooey chocolate cake like this one!  This cute image is Micing on Top from Di's Digi Stamps . I love these cute mice! I managed to find some patterned papers that kind of went with the blueberry coloured frosting I added to the cake, but it's not a colour I have lots of!  This card is for As You Like It Challenge Round Corner or Straight Edges (I much prefer to make square or rectangle shaped cards as my OCD prefers the balance and symmetry more than on a circle card!)

All Things Magical and Mythical #6 Featuring Fairy in Blossom from Lemon Shortbread

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mythical post. For this week's card I chose to use one of the gorgeous fairies from Lemon Shortbread - Fairy in Blossom . I went for some lovely bright colours on this one and then found some similarly bright patterned papers to go with it! I just wish I could get my sky to blend a bit smoother!  I added lots of Stickles to the wings and the centre of the flowers too for that touch of sparkliness!  This card is for Lemon Shortbread Challenge #154 Anything Goes Unicorn Challenge #69 Add Sparkle The Fairy and the Unicorn Challenge Anything Fantasy Goes Cute Card Thursday Challenge #692 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #184 Anything Goes Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge #9 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Fairy in Blossom from Lemon Shortbread, A Little Sparkle from Lawn Fawn Papers: Rose Red (Retired), Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie & Sweet & Sour Speciality DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make

Scene It Sunday #59 Featuring Cool Critters from Time For Tea Designs

Good morning and happy Sunday! Well, after 6 weeks off, it's finally back to teaching again for me tomorrow! A new school year, a new class and no doubt a new set of challenges as there always is! Let's just hope this school year is nowhere near as challenging as the past 2 years have been! Wish me luck!  Anyway...today's Scene It Sunday card uses the new-ish Cool Critters set from Time For Tea Designs and this is my first attempt at using them. I was really undecided about how to layout my card, so just went for a very quick outdoors scene, using my Distress Oxide Inks for the sky and to add a bit of shading to the hills and grass die cuts. This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #165 Anything Goes Dragonfly Dreams September Challenge Happy Birthday AllSorts Challenge Week 640 Anything Goes LeAnn's World 101 Challenge #42 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #214 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #562 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Cool Critters fr

Something Else on Saturday #121 Featuring Sleeping Panda from Lee Holland

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I bought all of Lee Holland's cute panda digi stamps when he released them a little while ago, but have not gotten round to using any of them yet, so here is my first one. This panda sleeping in the bamboo trees is such a cutie!  I decided I didn't want any layers of patterned papers on this card like I usually have, so this one is an odd size for me, but I quite like it for a little notecard. I think it is about 4.25 x 5 inches. This card is for Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 35 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 36 Anything Goes Pattie's Creations Challenge #186 Anything Goes Cute Card Thursday Challenge #692 Anything Goes Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #504 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #184 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Sleeping Panda from Lee Holland, Hung Up On You from Clearly Besotted Papers: Island Indigo & Midnight Muse (Both retired) both from Stampin

Scene It Sunday #58 Featuring Wet My Plants from Stamp Anniething

Good morning everyone and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. I have gone for a quick little scene today using one of my Stamp Anniething images which was once a freebie during the lockdown. I have combined it with a digital sentiment from La-La Land Crafts as I love this phrase but rarely have the chance to use it!  This card is for A Gem of A Challenge #18 Anything Goes Sweet Stampin' Challenge Lots of Layers A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge Anything Goes Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #222 Summer Fun The Cutie Pie Challenge #162 Girls Girls Girls Recipe: Stamps: Wet My Plants from Stamp Anniething, Blooming Marci from La-La Land Crafts Papers: Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green, Perfect Plum Prints DSP (Retired), Certainly Celery Prints DSP (Retired) & Tea & Crumpets DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Copic Markers Accessories: Polished Pink Ribbon from Stampin' Up, Berry Burst Stone Drops from Nuv
