LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration Post Featuring Ashera

Good morning and welcome to my DT inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101 for April. This time I have decided to use one of LeAnn's gorgeous mermaids (I have a thing for them!) and this gorgeous girl is called Ashera . I love colouring mermaids under the sea and now have now signed up for a colouring class to add more variety to my under the sea backgrounds - just need to get on with it, which with all things going on at the minute, I might get a chance to do when I'm not working from home. I used some mermaid themed patterned papers, but you can't really see much of them. However, I do love the colours that come through. This card is for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes Penny's Challenge #470 Anything Goes Addicted To Stamps Challenge #387 Make Your Mark Crafty Sentiments Design Challenge For A Girl The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Ashera from LeAnn's World 101, Mermaid For You from Lawn

Have An Otterly Great Birthday!

Good morning and welcome to my post for today! I have had a bit of extra time to play with all the lockdown going on, so dug out my cute Otter Friends stamp set from Hello Bluebird and made this cute card of the otters playing in the river. I used die cuts to make the water, grass and clouds and kept a fairly simply layout for once! Aren't they just adorable though?!

Something Else on Saturday #56 Featuring Oh Bother from Stamp Anniething

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday feature post! I have been meaning to use this adorable digi stamp from Stamp Anniething since they did a tutorial video for colouring it, but I just haven't got round to it until now! I also used the layout for their current sketch challenge as well! Despite the fact that I'm not a great fan of bees in real life, I seem to have a few bee related papers, stamps and dies and these all came in so handy for this card! I do need to print some more of these papers though as I have run out of the honey pot paper and my hexagons sheet is down to just strips now!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #424 Happy Colours

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is to use Happy Colours, i.e. ones that are nice and bright. To me pink adn aqua is my happy combo - I just love these two colours together, so had to go for those for this challenge. I used the gorgeous Eyes of Nature for my card this week, adding a few layers of patterned papers before using some of my Petallu flowers in the corners.

Chirpy Chirp Chirp!

Happy Sunday! I thought I would just pop this card quickly onto my card from today's card making session so I could enter the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge which finishes today! I actually had these cute chicks stamped and coloured ready to make an Easter card, but as I didn't send any out this year due to the lockdown, I didn't use them. They do work really well for other cards too, so used the sketch from the challenge and a different sentiment instead.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post Featuring Butterflies and Branches Ryder

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new releases from Faery Ink. This month I got to work with the gorgeous Butterflies and Branches Ryder. I absolutely loved colouring her hair and decided that as she is a fairy/fae that she should not have normal coloured hair, so I gave her green hair instead. I think it adds to the forest or nature fae look as well!

Something Else on Saturday #55 Featuring Parachuting Plushies from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I recently bought the new release bundle from Clearly Besotted and have coloured up virtually all of the stamps now. This is the first card I have made with one of the sets and I just love this one, with these cute parachuting and jumping bunnies. I made a DL sized card to shoe the bunnies parachuting through the sky, while their friends are all excited for them on the grass! How cute are they?!

Happy Easter!

Good morning and Happy Easter to those of you celebrating today! I don't do the religious side of Easter, but love to make Spring and Easter themed cards as I love all the cute stamps and digis that are always around at this time of year (and bunnies are one of my favourite animals too!). For today's card I used two different digis from La-La Land Crafts, Little Chick Baby Luka and the Spring Lamb and Bunny set. I coloured them all with my Copics before fussy cutting them to add to this die cut scene.

Something Else on Saturday #54 Featuring Dandy Day from Lawn Fawn

Good Saturday Morning! Don't know about you, but all the days are blending together for me now! I've been in isolation for 3 weeks now and I really do miss going out for no particular reason. I have been out for a couple of short walks here and there, but no swimming, no work, no shopping and online shopping is terrible for my bank balance! Anyway today's card features one of the newest sets from Lawn Fawn which I had to make into a bright, Spring coloured card! How adorable are these little mice?! This card is for Unicorn Challenge #53 Furry Friends Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #206 Spring As You Like It Challenge Animals or People (I like both, but love making cards with cute animals the most!)

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter . This week, our challenge is a very easy one - to use a digital image.

Something Else on Saturday #53 Featuring Uptown Girl Bianca Has A Big Cake from Stamping Bella

Happy belated Saturday! I keep forgetting to add my posts on here once I have added the photos and keep saving them in draft mode! Duh! No wonder nothing is coming out on my blog! Anyway for this week's card I have used the gorgeous Bianca has a big cake from Stamping Bella - how delicious does that gigantic cake look! I have been buying a lot of Stamping Bella stamps recently and this is one of my new ones! I went for a red velvet cake and I think the colours came out pretty good! I managed to find some old retired papers from Stampin' Up that went well together - just a shame I no longer have the red card to match as it retired years ago now!

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!
