Fantasy Friday #18 Featuring All I Want from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post. This week I am using the magical All I want set from Clearly Besotted. I actually bought this stamp set in protest as my boyfriend insisted I had every kind of stamp imaginable for making Christmas cards, so I bought this one (with some others) to prove that I hadn't as I didn't have a cute Christmas unicorn set! 😛

I used my Star Dust Die from Sugar Pea Designs to make it look like the flying unicorn was leaving a glittery trail of presents behind and love how it came out! Exactly as I imagined which hardly ever happens!

Good morning everyone adn welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. As always our challenge this week is an Anything Goes one and you don't need to use an image form Little Miss Muffet Stamps to join in, but we do love to see them if you have them! Why not pop on over to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps store and check out all the latest releases?!

I used two different digital images to create my card today -Linking Train Winter and Linking Train Winter Cars. I thought I would go with a cold colour combo this time and went for grey and blue. I really love how this one came out and with all the different cars/carriages, you could create so many variations of this card!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #364 Snowy Days

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge form The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is called Snowy Days and we would love to see all the snow themed projects! A perfect excuse to create another Christmas card!

I have used the adorable A Giant Candy Cane and went for a traditional red and green colour combo! Aren't those elves just the cutest?! I kept this one fairly flat and just added some gems so if I need any more for posting, it won't be too bulky!

Fantasy Friday #17 Featuring Teeny Tiny Townie Gingerbread House from Stamping Bella

Good morning and welcome to my latest Fantasy Friday post! This week I have used the adorable Teeny Tiny Townie Gingerbread House from Stamping Bella. I loved the whole Christmas collection that Stamping Bella brought out this year, but I limited myself to buying just one stamp. I am trying to be good!

I went with one of my favourite Christmas combos for this one - pink, brown and white! Even though the glitter card was a nightmare for shedding, I just love how this one came out!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This week I am using the adorable Jr. Hatter Belle and made a fairly simple (for me) card, keeping it fairly flat reading for posting! I like to have a few flat cards on hand especially for overseas posting as it gets quite pricey once you start adding flowers and other bulky embellishments.

I went for traditional red and green for this card as I am desperately trying to use up some of my old patterned papers, which I have absolutely loads of. I am really running out of room for my crafting stuff, so really do need to use up what I already have before buying too much more! Not sure how long that idea will last! LOL

This card is also for Sketch Saturday Challenge #540 As You Like It Challenge - Rubber or Digi? (I prefer digi stamps for images as I haven't the storage space for so many in rubber, but prefer sentiments in rubber so I can match the inks to my card and papers!) Cute Card Thursday Challenge #557…

Have A Merry (Go Round) Christmas

Good morning and welcome to another Christmassy post from me. No idea how many Christmas cards I have made so far and no idea if I have enough, but my MIL usually has some from me as well, so I'm just gonna keep making 'em until Christmas arrives! Might get to use some of the stamps I have been buying recently then!

Today I am using the cute little elves from Stampin' Up's Signs of Santa set and came up with this idea of make a circular spinner card when I pulled out the sentiment stamp and got merry-go-round in my head from it! The things that inspire us! 😜 The snowflakes move round (with a bit of persuasion) and the elves are supposed to be dancing round the outside! Quite a simple, but fun card!

Colour Crazy Challenge Guest DT Post

Good morning! I was lucky to be picked as one of the top three winners for the Colour Crazy Craft Challengea few weeks ago and part of the prize was to be a guest designer for the next three months, so here I am with my first post.

This week the challenge is sponsored by Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and the image I have used is Mortimer the Motivational Moose, which I used to create a Christmas card by adding the sentiment to his sign before printing. He's such a great character!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #202 Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge form Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This week I combined two stamps - Reindeer Gleefuland Winter Scene - to create this wintery themed Christmas card. I made it fairly large, but kept it flat for posting. To add a little texture I used my Liquid Applique for the snow and love how this adds just enough texture without being too bulky!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #362 Christmas is Coming

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is Christmas is Coming and I have used the gorgeous Lady of Falling Leaves for my card. I know technically this image is more for fall/Autumn, but I thought she would work for a wintery coloured card as well and I love how she came out!

Fantasy Friday #15 Featuring Under The Sea by C.C.Designs

Good morning and welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post! Today I am sharing a card I made using the gorgeous Under The Sea stamps from C.C. Designs. This is another set that I have had for ages and have never used before! I am so bad at buying stamps, both physical and digital ones, but never using them! I am trying to actually use everything I buy now and am trying to put myself on a bit of a crafting stash ban! (Not sure how long that will last though LOL)

I created the background using my Distress Oxides and my Making Waves stencil and love how it came out! I am definitely going to do this again!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration post for this week. Now's it's November and Hallowe'en is all done 😥 I need to start making some more Christmas cards and I tend to run out! I used the adorable Jr Hatter Holly, who comes with 3 different images on her stocking. I chose to use the presents one for this card.


For a change I thought I would make an easel card - not done one for ages! But love being able to use a larger image and still being able to add a sentiment to it! 
And here is a close up (and a better photo - my phone camera can be awkward at times like on the full photo!) of my image.

Little Miss Muffet Challenge #201 Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stampsthis week. Today I am using the adorableJr. Hatter Kit with the add on faces set A and created this cute Christmas card.
