Something Else on Saturday #4 with St Patty's Day Parade from Cute As A Button Stamps

Good morning and welcome to my latest Something Else on Saturday post. This week I am sharing this month's Facebook Progressive project for Cute As A Button with the cute St. Patty's Day Parade digi stamp.

I'm not Irish, not do I celebrate St. Patrick's Day but I do love the combo of green and orange on this one. I added some Crystal Drops randomly on this one and love these for little embellishments! Think these are my new crafty loves at the minute and just bought another load of bottles in the Tonic sale!

Scrapper's Delights New Release Anime Aries

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for the new release from Scrapper's Delights. This month I am sharing the new gorgeous zodiac image, Aries. There are loads of elements in the digi bundle to help create backgrounds, sentiments and other elements for your cards, which I have used lots of here.

I went for a stunning blue and silver grey combo on this card and added a touch of glittery ribbon and glitter on the stars for that extra touch of sparkle as well.

Good evening and welcome to another of my posts for the Little Miss Muffet Carnival event that is happening this week. This is a limited time event and if you head on over to the LMMS Store you will find all the fabulous carnival themed stamps on this page.

For today's card I used the cute Swings 'n' Slides Hooked, Swings n'n Slides Hook-A-Duck and the Swings 'n' Slides Carnival Sentiments Plus. I used the same layout as for my other two cards (my third one is coming at the weekend!) to make a matching trio and added some bright yellow Nuvo Drops to this one!

Simply B Stamps February Progressive Challenge Featuring Miss Antoinette

Good morning and welcome to another post from me, this time sharing the project I made for the Simply B Stamps Progressive Challenge for February. It starts at the end of the month, so I'm not late! Just in time to be honest!

This month we had a choice of image, Miss Antoinette which I chose or a zombiefied version of Mrs Antoinette. The only rules this month was for Miss Antoinette was to use feathers - something I rarely dig out of my crafty drawers despite having 4 different boxes of them! Great excuse to make me use them.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Carnival Time!

Good evening everyone and welcome to an extra special DT post from me today. As you might remember Little Miss Muffet Stamps owner Barbara decide to take a hiatus a little while ago, but she is back today briefly with a limited edition rubber stamp release, with several stamps available all on the theme of carnival!

We don't call it carnival here in the UK as such as to us a carnival is more of a street parade (Think Notting Hill Carnival) but to us Brits, an American carnival is called a fun fair. This usually has lots of fun rides, yummy food stalls and lots of games to win prizes! Lots of bright lights, sugary foods and noise! Fun for everyone!

Anyway.. my card today shares the Swings 'n' Slides Ice Cream stamp with the Sweet Sentiments stamp. I kept this one fairly simple, and as you will see over the next few days, the layout was the same for all my cards so they make a trio or related images!

This card is also for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #422 Anything Goes

Something Else on Saturday #3 with Fairy Twila from C.C Designs

Good evening! I have been so busy with work and doing parents evenings this week that I completely forgot to do my blogpost for today's Something Else post! One of the joys of the job I guess is that you don't have as much free time some weeks to get everything at home done too!

Anyway today's post shares a sweet little fairy from C.C.Designs, which I bought when they still sold their digis stamps. She's such a cutie, don't you think?!

Something Else on Saturday #2 Art by MiRan Colouring Page

Good morning and welcome to another of my Something Else on Saturday posts. This week I am using one of the gorgeous new colouring pages from Art by MiRan. I used to be on her Design Team until she took a break from drawing to focus on having her baby, who is a gorgeous little girl now.

However, she has recently returned with a small colouring book and this is one of the pages from it. I resized it to an almost A5 sized image and coloured it using my Copics. It took a while to do but it turned out so beautiful I think, that it was well worth it! (Why does my sky always look horrible when I photograph it, though?! It looks so much better in real life!)

Lawn Fawn Gnomeo and Juliet

Good afternoon and welcome to my post for today. I am joining in with the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge this week which is to make a project inspired by a book, a movie or a song. Having just bought the cute Oh Gnome set and the Mushroom House dies I just had to use them.

Gnomeo and Juliet is a fun movie so I used the colours of the two gnome families as the basis for my card. I recently watched the Sherlock Gnomes film on Netflix which must be the sequel and it was really funny too!

Something Else on Saturday #1 Featuring Pearl's Birthday Tiddly Inks

Good Morning! I have had to move my Fantasy Friday post to a Saturday now as a lot of the posts for Scrapper's Delight, my new design team, are on Fridays and so neither post gets lost or missed, I thought I would move my regular feature to a Saturday. However I didn't think that Fantasy Saturday would work, so I came up with Something Else on Saturday instead!

And for my first Something Else post, I thought I would share my latest Tiddly Inks creations using the gorgeousPearl's Birthday digi stamp. Mermaids are always a firm favourite of mine and I just love this new image!

Scrapper's Delights Progressive Challenge for March

Good evening and welcome to my post for the new progressive challenge from Scrapper's Delights. This month we are using this gorgeous Easter themed image, Eggstra Special and I went for one of my go-to sets of paper to make a pastel coloured card. But alas (poor Yorick!) this was basically all I had left and I have finally finished this pack of papers after about 10 years of owning them! I bet you all have heaps of really old stuff in your stash like I do!

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Believe In Yourself

Good Morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Faery Ink for this week. This week I have used the gorgeous Believe In Yourself, which was the One Day Fae Giveaway at the end of last month, but I just didn't have chance to use her at the time. To say work has been hectic the past week or so is an understatement, but it will ease off eventually I'm sure!


I went for some bright tropical colours in this image and then decided on a silvery, grey hair colour, which I have added Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen to, but you can't see in this photo!

Fantasy Friday #30 Featuring Unicorn Birthday from Isabel Cristina Stamps

Good morning and welcome to another of my Fantasy Friday posts. This week I have used the adorable to make a bright, fun birthday card.

I do love my unicorns and saw a friend of mine using these digi stamps, so had to go and buy them. I love the idea of a rainbow mane and that's where the colour combo came from! However, it is harder to match colours to it when you have so many, so hopefully these papers from the Rainbow Magic pad from Hobbycraft work well enough.
