Merry Christmoose

I was lucky enough to win a set of Canadian-themed stamps by Frog's Whiskers Ink from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine a few weeks ago, so thought I'd have a play with them.  It's been a while since I did any tapestry stamping so I used these stamps in conjunction with some other stamps I have, to create a Christmas card.  It feels weird to me now making a card without a digital stamp, but I realise how much I love playing with real stamps.
I can never get my writing as nice as I'd like when writing sentiments, but I didn't have anything suitable for this card. I really wanted to to a pun-ny sentiment!

Products used:

  • Cream card blank
  • Papermania snowflake stamps (free from a set in the magazine)
  • See-D's Morsels stamps 'Springtime Collection'
  • Frog's Whiskers Inks stamps 'Maple Leaf' & 'Moose'
  • Whispers inks
  • Black pen

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Stamping Sensations - August Anything Goes

  3. ABC Christmas Challenge - P, Q & R (Quick & Red)
  4. Addicted to CAS - #117 One Layer
  5. A Bit More Time to Craft - #49 Anything Goes

Mermaid in a Vase

Well I've already shown you the card I made for my friend's 50th birthday, so today I will show you her present.  We'd been talking a while ago and I said I really wanted to make a mermaid in a jar, so that's what I did! 
I didn't want anything too cutesy, so chose to use 'Pin Up Mermaid' by JadeDragonne.  She's absolutely perfect for this project, sitting in her shell.  It was quite fiddly adding all the glass beads for bubbles. I couldn't get the invisible thread to knot big enough, so had to glue them in the end! 
I'm so happy with how this project turned out. It's just what I had in my mind.

Product list:
  • Glass vase
  • Course stone granules
  • Shells
  • Plastic foliage
  • Glass beads
  • Cheesecloth
  • Starfish
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Almond, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick, Black, Aegean, Duck Egg, Cool Grey 5, Burgundy, Antique Pink, Pale Pink, Saffron, Blush, Satin, Slate, Violet, Lavender, Caramel, Sandstone, Vanilla & Cool Aqua

It's A Hoot-Hoot Birthday!

I had recently seen many twist-and-pop cards on Pinterest and was dying to make one.  I wanted my first one to be special though, so waited for my friend Susan's 50th birthday.  She loves owls and her favourite colour combo is red, black and white, so I already had my theme sorted.  I won some Polkadoodles images a while ago and chose 'Party Time Twiggy & Toots' especially for this occasion.  
These cards are actually a lot easier to make than they look.  I just love this as people are always so impressed with pop-up cards. I don't have any step-by-step photos for this one, as just forgot to be honest.  You can find the instructions I followed here though.

Product list:

  • Black and white cardstock
  • Papermania 'Spots & Stripes Brights' DP
  • Sequins
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Celebration Script Words dies
  • ProMarkers - Walnut, Henna, Cinnamon, Tan, Cardinal, Hot Pink, Lipstick, Burgundy, Shale, Black, Cool Grey 5, Tulip, Cocoa, Warm Grey 1-4, Sandstone, Vanilla, Denim, Blue Pearl, Powder Blue, Primrose, Ginger, Saffron, Oatmeal, Burnt Orange, Indigo, French Navy, Cobalt, Bright Orange, Gold, Sunflower & Buttercup
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll

Hello There Rosy!

Earlier in the year Kit & Clowder had a colouring class using Power Poppy images.  I used the image for the markers class, but I also loved the image for the pencil class.  I was thrilled when Marcella had this on sale one weekend and I had to have it! 
The image is called 'Everything's Rosy' and comes as a couple of different images with more or less flowers.  I have chosen the smaller image to use. The name of this image always makes me smile, as it reminds me of a kids' programme my son used to watch back home called 'Everything's Rosie' (my husband loved it so much he used to watch it on his lunch break... bahaha).
I printed the image quite large, so the only thing to really do was make a CAS card.  I am CASEing Jessie Banks' style of card for the PP challenge, plus using the 'Hues To Use' below.


Products used:
  • Plain coloured cardstock
  • ProMarkers - Holly, Lush Green, Moss, Leaf Green, Burnt Orange, Bright Orange, Pumpkin, Amber, Apricot, Cocoa, Gold, Sunflower, Canary, Lemon, Turquoise, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Tea Green & Warm Grey 1-3
  • Sakura Gelly Roll, White

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Power Poppy - On the CASE!
  2. Simon Says Wednesday - Anything Goes
  3. Crafty Gals Corner - #133 Anything Goes
  4. Come and Get It - Summertime
  5. Colour Crazy - wk30 Anything Goes

Folds, Sparkles and All That Jazz!

The latest monthly class at Kit & Clowder is a great one for people like me who hate colouring hair, lol.  Alyce has chosen some wonderful images from Moonflower with big hair and lots of folds to practice these techniques.  I am in the marker classes, but chose to use the pencil class image as I preferred this one. 
I decided I wanted to keep this class, so rather than putting her on a card, I fussy-cut her and put her in a simple clip frame.  I had bought a couple of frames, but the edges were too close and cut the image up a little. 

Product list:
  • Clip frame
  • Lilac paper
  • Core'dinations GlitterSilk card
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll
  • ProMarkers - Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Dusky Pink, Satin, Almond, Black, Warm Grey 4 & 5, Indigo, French Navy, Aegean, Cyan, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Tea Green, Cocoa, Gold, Sunflower, Canary, Lemon, Mulberry, Magenta, Carmine, Antique Pink, Pastel Pink & Sunkissed Pink

I had to photograph from slightly above so not to get any reflection on the glass. It does make the picture look a little odd to me, but it couldn't be helped!


I am entering my picture into the following challenges:
  1. The Ribbon Girl - July Use Any Image
  2. Colour Crazy - wk29 AG
  3. Creative Fingers - #134 AG
  4. Lemon Shortbread - #46 AG
  5. Polkadoodles - wk28 AG

Poinsettia Joy

Eek I'm doing Christmas in July again!  When it comes to Christmas cards I really like to keep things simple. It's the time of year when I'm making more cards and spending a lot on postage, so a million embellishments just isn't cost effective to me.

Product list:

  • Kraft card blank
  • MME 'Sleigh Bells Ring' designer paper
  • 3D foam pads
  • ProMarkers - Umber, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon, Tan, Pastel Pink, Black, Warm Grey 4 & 5, Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Lipstick, Holly, Pine, Lush Green, Sunflower, Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Apricot, Walnut, Henna, French Navy, Aegean, Sky Blue, Amber, Tulip, Indigo, True Blue, Cobalt, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Gold & Ginger
  • Sakura Gelly Roll, White
  • Wink of Stella, Clear

Life In The Fast Lane

Today I would love to share with you a card that I made my Dad for his birthday at the weekend.  I have used a gorgeous new rubber stamp 'Carmen Electrafying', that I got from KennyK Stamps before they closed.  I've only used digistamps from them previously, but I'm very impressed with the quality of the clear stamp.
The great thing about the clear stamps is the main image comes in a set with sentiments and accessories too.  I've used the sentiment with this card and also the tire tread marks.  I've embossed these and think it came out looking like muddy tracks. 
A technique I love doing with Core'dinations (that I know some people are scared to do) is scrunching up the card then flattening out again and sanding. It gives a wonderful distressed look and more texture than just sanding the edges, or sanding flat.

Product list:

  • Grey cardstock
  • Mirri card
  • Core'dinations cardstock & GlitterSilk cardstock
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz 'Diamond Plate' embossing folder
  • X-Cut oval nesting die
  • Memento ink
  • Wow! black embossing powder
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Celebration Script Words dies
  • ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Almond, Cardinal, Hot Pink, Lipstick, Black, Cool Grey 1, 2, 4 & 5, Ruby, Powder Blue & Shale
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. I ♥ ProMarkers - #339 AG
  2. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - #62 AG
  3. Crafty Awesomeness - July AG
  4. Crafty Creations - #346 AG
  5. Creative Moments - #122 AG

Christmas In A Bottle

Do you ever start something, then put it away because you're not really sure what you want to do with it yet?  
I bought a bottle of iced tea a while ago and of course had to keep the bottle to create something with.  I decided to fill it with some little Christmas baubles that I had leftover from making a wreath.  Then I put it in a box and forgot about it. 
I won the gorgeous 'Garland Sprite' from Aurora Wings during Mitzi's 3K Facebook member celebration, coloured her up and put her in my folder (I have lots of coloured up images in there - I really must start using some!).
Realising I only have a couple of days left to enter the Aurora Wings blog challenge, I grabbed Garland Sprite out and wracked my brains for what to do with her.  I've made lots of cards lately so wanted to do something different. Hunting for a glass jar or something, I found the bottle of baubles that I'd put away. Lightbulb moment! I added some paper filler to nestle the baubles so they wouldn't rattle and covered the lid with burlap.  A bit of ribbon, twine and bells and my creation was complete!

Product list:
  • Glass bottle
  • Baubles
  • Paper 'filler shreds'
  • Burlap
  • Ribbon
  • Twine
  • Bells
  • ProMarkers - Raw Sienna, Ginger, Saffron, Oatmeal, Burgundy, Shale, Cardinal, Ruby, Holly, Lush Green, Forest Green, Crimson, Berry, Lipstick, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Sunflower, Canary, China Blue & Blue Pearl
  • Wink of Stella, Clear
  • Sakura Gelly Roll, white


I am entering my bottle into the following challenges:
  1. Aurora Wings Blog - #53 Anything Goes
  2. Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - #341 Anything Goes
  3. Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - July Anything Goes
  4. Creative Craft Cottage - #91 Christmas In July

A Countryside Bouquet

Since discovering Power Poppy I've been really loving their images, so I was very happy to snag 'Countryside Bouquet' for a bargain price. 
I'd already cut the image in a circle before seeing the new blog challenge of 'Copy a Bloomie'.  I had a look through Instagram and found the perfect card to use.  I love the simple layering and button embellishment on Julie's card.
