Morning peeps !!

How are you all ??   Weather has been very up and down here, either sunny or freezing !!

Christmas is really now just round the corner so time to think about the presents !!  Hope SantaPaws has remembered our furry friends......just in case he hasn't here is a little gift idea.

 

All you need is an empty plasic bauble, treats, home made tag (I've stamped and coloured a Crafters Companion cute image) and some wonderful "Muddy Paws" ribbon from Crafty Ribbon.



I like to give these to my friends with dogs to hang on the tree, but you can make them for any pet, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, mouse, hamster etc...

Making Cards


I really have enjoyed the free papers and stamps from Making Cards magazine just lately !! This months is a Christmas edition with fab Winter Friends stamps ( just wish they had been a bit bigger ) and free Christmas Posy papers.

For my first card I've made a raised round frame for my fox and coloured him using copic pens.Fussy cut out some of the elements and glazed the berries. Added sparkle with stickles.

 
For my next card I cut a round aperture in the centre of my card base, lined the inside with the free papers and added a moon. On the front of the card I made a snow bank from strips of white card for the animals to sit on, all fussy cut out and also coloured in using copic pens.

































Still got loads of papers left and images so now working on my third card so watch this space !!

Close to Nature



 Just had to join in the Penny Black and More challenge when I saw its theme "Close To Nature". Seeing I love making up little scenes with my stamps this was the challenge for me !!


I don't have many Penny Black stamps so used a set of stamps by Lindsay Mason and the sentiment stamp I had in my stash. Just made a background using distress inks and some water, then stamped all the images and sentiment. Finished off with some sparkle using Stickles and a bit of chnky white Frantage.

Quick Cards magazine


I took part in this month's Quick Cards magazine Sketch Challenge !!


























Sadley I didn't take a photo of my card before I sent it off, so will do when I get it back.


























I love sketches and seeing all the different takes by other crafters. I wasn't sure how out of the box I could take it so played safe with my card. The middle bit looked like a fence so made a little scene using the fab cacti stamps by Woodware and on the background.

Halloween


My word time for another House Mouse and Friends challenge and the theme is......


I just love Halloween colours, can't go wrong with black, oranges, purple and greens. I've actually used Stampendous HMD called "Autumn Winds" which I thought went well with the Halloween theme and made a spooky background for my little guy using distress inks and a tree stamp.
































Stamped and coloured with Copics and then fussy cut the image out mounting it onto 3d foam tape then onto my background. Die cut my "Spooky" making the "O's" into eyes !!

We are super excited to be sponsored by:

Woodware flowers

 
Wanted to make a nice "Thank You" card for a lovely friend, so set about making an inky background using three distress inks. Then white heat embossed some Woodware flower stamps colouring in with the same distress inks and adding loads of doodling with a black pen !!


Managed to make three cards from my A4 inky background !!

Live Laugh Love


































A while back on fb I won from Indigo Blu a stamp set of my choice and I chose the fab set called Live Laugh Love.

Last month at Scrap Club the challenge was to make another lay out using up your left over scraps from our lay out we had just made. Now I don't usually do the challenges as I always lack photos, but this one had my name written all over it.

I tried to use all the stamps in the set, but didn't use the lace border.  There is two lots of doodling on the edge of my lat out, one being two wavy lines and then the outer border which I drew and the fussy cut out.

 The flowers were all stamped one of my scraps and then fussy cut out, all have pearl centres. The dragons flies, bird and leaves also stamped onto my scraps.


I've used the butterflies on the background and the sentiments on the orange background and tags. Finished off with some white Frantage embossing power dots.

A fun challenge for me with a wonderful set of stamps !!
