Stampers Delights Chibi New Release

Good evening everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new Chibi image release from Stampers Delights. Thsi image, technically is not new, BUT Janice is now releasing some of her cute images as RUBBER STAMPS!!! And this cutie, the logo for Stampers Delights, is the first one to be released!

I decorated the cover of my Copics Colours Combo book that I will one day get around to finishing! I used my favourite combo of pink and aqua and then added some purple highlights in her hair, which I think you can just about see! I kept the cover flat as I know what I'm liking at storing things like this and would wreck it within a week if I added lots of embellishments to it! At least now it still fits on my shelf!

Happy Easter from Shelly and Nibbles

Good morning and welcome to today's post. I was lucky enough to win some fabulous digis from Sweet November Stamps this month - their last release, which I am sad about as I have only recently discovered these cuties from Amy Young and fast became an avid follower of both Amy and the Sweet November stamps. Using Amy's colour along video that she did on Facebook a few weeks back, I created this cute scene using 2 of the digis that I won.

Now I'm by no means a drawer at all, but I think this turned out pretty good! The tree was totally inspired by Amy as was the river which I decided to add in at the last minute, hence why it's not very big at all! I do think my tree's branches are a bit too long, and I went for the stippling technique to do the leaves rather than curls like Amy did, but I do like it! I added the sentiment with my new alphabet dies from Mama Elephant, but as an after thought, should have done Hoppy Easter instead of Happy!

This project is for Simon Sa…

The Paper Shelter Challenge #420 Flowers of spring

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is called Flowers of Spring, so we want to see lots of pretty flowers on your card, whether as an image or as embellishments or even on patterned papers.

I used the gorgeous Tulipsfor my card, which I think are the perfect flowers for spring, along with daffodils of course. Unfortunately I didn't have any yellow tulips paper flowers to add to my card, so I used my flowers from PetalLu instead. After printing and colouring her, I fussy cut round her to add to a yellow dotted background, which I much prefer to a white one!

Something Else on Saturday #52 Featuring A Bug Deal from Lawn Fawn

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I got some of the new Lawn Fawn sets this month and this one with all these cute little bugs just reminded me so much of A Bug's Life, which is one of my favourite Disney movies, so had to grab it!

I attempted to make a more masculine birthday card this time, as they are ones I rarely have in my stash and these bugs work so well for it.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Spring Moon Lahla

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my inspiration post for the new release from Faery Ink. This gorgeous image is called Spring Moon Lahla - isn't she just gorgeous?! I went for a blue and silver colour combo on this one, but coloured her before looking for patterned papers and I am seriously lacking in anything silver or dark blue! Need to fix that!

Something Else on Saturday #51 Featuring Sweet Plushies from Clearly Besotted

Good Saturday morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I cannot believe we are in March already - where has the past two months gone to?! I had a long list of things to do during my half term holiday the other week and got hardly any of them done and today's card shares a stamp set that is one of the reasons why. I stamped up lots of my new goodies and coloured them all, rather than ticking off things (boring things, mind you!) off my to do list.

Today's card uses the adorable Sweet Plushies from Clearly Besotted's February release - aren't they just adorable?! I made a grid style card, but this time cut out the rectangles and layered them on top of the paper rather then trying to get them all lined up to make a frame! I went for lots of bright colours with this one as well.

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is called Circle It, so we want to see lots of circles on your project!

Did Someone Say Cake?

Good morning and welcome to today's post! I thought I would share with you all a little card I made at the weekend for the Inky Paws Challenge using Newton's Nook Designs Stamps. I love these cute kitties and when I saw the new challenge was to use polka dots, I just had to join in as dots are my fave pattern. I have heaps of clothes, bags, hair accessories and shoes with dots on and they are always my favourite patterned papers to use in my card making too!

I used strips of dotty papers to make the background look a bit like the cake from the stamp with the scalloped edging. Love how bright and colourful this card is!
