All Things Magical and Mythical #1 Featuring Unicorn Picnic from Lawn Fawn

Good morning and welcome to a new feature I have decided to add to my blog, All Things Magical and Mythical. If you have visited my blog before, you will probably know that I love all things magical and mythical - fairies, mermaids, unicorns, vampires, witches and anything in between! So I thought I would share some of those cards and projects with you, partly because I love them so much and have so many stamps using these characters and partly because it will make me use all of these stamps even more!  Anyway for my first card I have used one of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets that I just had to buy as soon as it was released. Even though I had stamped and coloured it immediately, I have never got round to adding the images to a card! So here is my Unicorn Picnic card featuring these adorable animals enjoying their picnic in the clouds!  This card is for Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 31 Anything Goes Unicorn Challenge #68 Anything Goes Lemon S

Scene It Sunday #54 Featuring Finley, Shellbea & Horizon Lines: Under The Sea from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning and happy Sunday! Welcome to my Scene It Sunday post today. If you have visited my blog before you will know that I love everything fantasy and mermaids are definitely one of my favourite images to colour for my cards. When Sweet November Stamps released their new mermaid stamps back in June, I just had to get them, but have only just gotten round to putting them on a card!  I love the scene builder stamp sets that Amy is releasing and they are just perfect for a slimline/DL sized card as well!  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #163 Anything Goes 613 Avenue Create Challenge #8 Anything Goes A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge #8 Anything Goes A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge #143 Anything Goes Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge The Ocean Is Calling and I Must Go Recipe: Stamps: Finley, Shellbea & Horizon Lines: Under The Sea all from Sweet November Stamps Papers: Soft Sky & Wild Wasabi (B

Something Else on Saturday Challenge #116 Featuring Blanche Butterfly from Stamping Bella

Good morning and happy Saturday! For today's Something Else on Saturday Challenge, I thought I would go for a really bright, rainbow filled card using the adorable Blanche Butterfly from Stamping Bella. I have used her before and did her in all purples, but thought it would be fun to do a multicoloured colouring and I have to say I just LOVE it! It's very bright, but with the added touches of black, she really does pop.  The challenge was though to find some papers that enhanced but not overpowered her, but I'm not sure I managed that as these patterned papers from Whimsy Stamps and Stampin' Up are all so bright! But I love rainbows so just love these all as well!  This card is for Creatalicious Challenge #216 Anything Goes A Gem of A Challenge Week 16 Anything Goes Allsorts Challenge Week 635/6 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 30 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 31 Anything Goes Aud Sentiments Challenge #280 Anything Goes + A Sentiment Recipe:

LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration Post Featuring Happy Hour

Good morning everyone and welcome to my final DT post for the LeAnn's World 101 Design Team. I have decided to step down from this team at the end of this month as I fancy a change and as well as taking on the team leader role for The Paper Shelter, I need a bit more time as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the team since November 2019, so about 18 months or so and will miss being part of the team, but feel ready for the change now.  Anyway for my card this month, I have chosen to use the cute Happy Hour  image and added a bit more colouring to the background to make it look like she was having a celebratory drink in a bar! I also added some drinking related sentiments from one of my new stamp sets, which were just perfect for this scene!  Recipe: Stamps: Happy Hour from LeAnn's World 101, Cocktail Hour from Clearly Besotted Papers: Poppy Parade & Soft Suede both from Stampin' Up, Curiosity Corner Patterned Papers from Dovecraft, Make It Colour Blending C

Scene It Sunday #53 Featuring S'More Fun from Lawn Fawn

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post! For this one, I just had to use my new Lawn Fawn S'More Fun set with the new forest backdrop die to make this fun campfire themed card. I love smores, although I don't have them too often. Will definitely be having some this summer though! To add to the woodland scene I embossed my backdrop die with a woodgrain embossing folder, but it was just a bit too small for the sized of the die cut piece so it was put through a couple  of times which really squished it too much! Might have to see if I can find one that is bigger than the UK sized A6 folder I have.

Something Else on Saturday Challenge #115 Featuring Santa Baby from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Although it is the first Saturday of my 6 week summer holiday from school, I thought I would make a Christmas card to join in with the Christmas in July challenges that are about this month. I still have loads of Christmas images coloured up from last year which were not used, so I just pulled one of those sets out and made this cute, quick card with these adorable little Santas! I used some of my old retired patterned papers for this one to use some of the scraps up, but there's still loads left so may make another couple of cards in this layout to use them all again!    This card is for Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #221 Christmas in July Dragonfly Dreams Challenge Christmas in July Creative Craft Cottage Challenge #142 Christmas In July Digi Doodle Studios Challenge #40 Christmas in July Crafty Catz Challenge #561 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 30 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Santa Baby, Lit

The Paper Shelter Summer Break Challenge

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter.  This week our challenge is our annual Summer Break Challenge which will last for 4 weeks to give the design teams members a little break for their summer vacations! Both Team A and Team B have joined together for this challenge as well, so there is double the amount of inspiration for you!  This challenge is an Anything Goes challenge and the prize will still be the same, but there will be no commenting from the DT members this time round.  For my card I used the fabulous A Well-Kept Garden . I do have a thing for gnomes (not that I have any in my actual garden though!) and love to use them on cards as they make a masculine themed card really quick and easy.  Recipe: Stamps: A Well-Kept Garden from The Paper Shelter, Hung Up On You from Clearly Besotted Papers:  Summer Starfruit (Retired), Pacific Point & In Colors 2012-14 Prints DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Make It Colour Blending Ca

Scene It Sunday #52 Featuring Polka Dot Pals Kezia from Whimsy Stamps

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. This week I decided to use one of my newish clear stamp sets from Whimsy Stamps. I used to be on the Polka Dot Pals design team before it closed, but I am so glad that Barbara is now selling her stamps in clear rubber form through Whimsy Stamps.  I used the cute Kezia for this week's card and added in a beachy scene behind her. The green "wood" at the bottom was supposed to be like those beach mats you can get - I think they are made out of some kind of grass so that as she's eating her huge ice cream it's not dripping all in the sand! I think it came out fairly well, despite the fact that I had no real idea where it was going at the beginning!  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #162 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 29 Anything Goes The Sketchy Challenges #176 Summer Aud Sentiments Challenge # 279 Kids of Summer + A Sentiment Love To Scrap Challenge #147 Anything Goes

Stampers Delights New Release Tutorial - Chibi Friendship Grows

Good evening and welcome to another Stampers Delights DT post from me. For today's card I have used the newly released Friendship Grows and as the sentiment uses the word grows, I just had to make part of the image "grow" as well. I hope you check out my full step-by-step tutorial over on the Stampers Delights blog to see how I made this card. I used the flowers from the stamp set to create the matching patterned papers. You can see the pull tab with the second flower just behind the purple potted flower and when you pull the tab...   ...the second flower "grows!" How fun is that!  This card is for Sweet Stampin' Challenge Create Your Own Background Creative Moments Challenge #218 Anything Goes Crafty Creations Challenge #423 Anything Goes The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes 613 Avenue Create Challenge #7 Anything Goes The Corrosive Challenge #7 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Chibi Friendship Grows from Stampers Delight Papers: Raspberry

Something Else on Saturday Challenge #114 Featuring Strawberry Fields Mice from Digi Doodle Studios

Good morning and happy Saturday! For today's post I have used the adorable Strawberry Fields Mice digi stamps from Digi Doodle Studios, which now seems to have been retired. This is such a cute set - shame it is no longer available though!  Anyway I used these cuties to make another thank you card for my work colleagues and found some old Maja Design patterned papers with strawberries on!  Perfect papers for this card!  This card is for A Gem of a Challenge #15 Anything Goes Allsorts Challenge Week 633/4 Feminine For A Lady Creative Fingers Challenge #212 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #570 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 28 Anything Goes Digi Doodles Studio Facebook July Challenge Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Strawberry Fields Mice from Digi Doodle Studios Papers: Poppy Parade & Garden Green both from Stampin' Up, Summertime (In The Garden) Patterned Papers from Maja Design, Make It Colour Blending Card from Make It Crafty Inks: Copic Markers Access
