Old coloured images

 Does anyone else have a little pile of coloured images just waiting for  a card host? Well, I did have, but I have thrown a few away as I wasn’t happy with them but I saved this one which I think I coloured with copics. I just matched her up with a doohickey poinsettia die and some Martha Stewart punch cut leaves and the job was done .

Hello kitty

 I have a little girl in my family and this make is just perfect for her. It’s a sizzix die called “hello kitty princess” sometimes a quickish card is just what you need and this one fits the bill. I have used walnut stain distress ink around the die cut and the papers are old stampin up ones.

Because you’re gorjuss

 I have quite a few of these gorjuss stamps and I usually distress marker colour them but today I used my promarkers. I love how this little lady turned out. I used a very old star die and stampin up papers that were gifted to me by a very dear crafty friend Diane.

Christmas Hoot

Here’s a little stamp set that I bought a few months back and I love them. They are so cute and are from clearly besotted.  I have dug out another Martha Stewart punch and this one is a holly leaf design. I have coloured my owls in promarkers , used echo park papers and Penny black nesting dies and so that’s just about it!

Happy Halloween!

 I have this fabulous french fry box die from stampin up and it’s great for little treats for friends or family. So I dug our some green card and a circle punch and a set of stamps from stampin up that we’re perfect for this little project and I’m sure my nephew will love them! Trick or treat? Definitely a treat!

Christmouse bauble

So here are the ingredients for my next card, minus promarkers, memento ink, penny black dies, vintage photo distress ink, glue and cardstock! I found it quite helpful to limit my ingredients as it forced me not to be distracted by stash hunting and decision making. Sometimes I find myself just looking through stash rather than creating, so pulling it out beforehand and not allowing myself to wander made me more creative. I have a few Martha Stewart punches and I love them but don’t use them enough so I’m digging them out for play! They are so much quicker than the big shot! The sentiment stamps are a stampin up set and I think I can do a lot more with them....hmm ideas are flowing! Have a good day all!

Lili of the valley reindeer

 So, here we are... so much has happened since I was last here. Time to take stock and just use this little place to keep a record of my makes. 

Here’s my first creation after a longish period of Mojo loss. I have used some old echo park papers, almost at the end of that paper pad😄, a penny black sentiment, years old.. and a new stamp from Lili of the valley which is called festive reindeer. My image has been coloured with promarkers and inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink. The dies are from a set called ‘funky festive ‘by Tim Holtz.
