House Mouse and Stampendous Blog Hop 28th March !!

Whoohoo guy's !!

House Mouse and Friends are having a Blog Challenge Hop with the fabulous Stampendous !!


Our challenge theme is:

"Use stencils with our HMD Characters"

On my card I have used  HMD "Jewellry Making", stamped and coloured in using Spectrum Noir pens and added some shine using a glaze pen on all the beads and jars !!

I've used Dreamweavers white gloss and crackle embossing paste with their fabulous "Vintage Decor" stencil to create my textured background.  First I put a layer of crackle paste all over a piece of white card, let it dry and then layed my stencil on top going over it with gloss paste. When everything was  dry I went over the design with Vintage Photo distress ink. To add a bit more texture I went round the edges with Liquid Pearls in Copper Pearl

All topped off with a bit of lace and big ribbon bow !!

A " hoppy " card

 Hi guys, sharing a Fiskarettes UK project today which I loved making using Fiskars tools !!

Just made a sky background by punching out a cloud and inking around it

Cut some strips of white card inking all the edges to make the fence, then used the shape cutter to cut ovals and circles to make my bunny. A strip of white card fringed and rolled makes the bunny's tail.

Then punched some petals and leaves from pattern papers and a few stalks to make the flowers, adding some stitching detail using a black fine line pen.

This panel was then mounted onto a pastel green card base.
Whatever you have planned today,  hope it's a "hoppy" one !!

Enjoy Your Day

Got a sweet little rocker card to share today guys. Wanted to make a girly card using these cute Penny Black hedgehogs. 

The papers are by Wild Rose Studio and a great way to use up scraps is to cut them in strips to make your background paper as I have done.

I've used my usual Spectrum Noir pens to colour in with,  a Cheery Lyn die to make the flowers and a fine black liner pen to add dots to all the edges !!  Topped off with a big pink bow !!

Hope you're all enjoying your day !!

So who's up for a new LC Designs challenge ??

The theme is " Anythiing goes " this month and for my card I tried a shabby chic sort of look using

Sweetest Wishes clear stamps

Did a lot of inking and background stamping on this one, stamped and water coloured my little girl image, used some fab oval  Cheery Lyn dies, made my shabby roses by punching circles and tinting them blue then crumpling them up, finished off with a lace ribbon bow and some fancy pearls.
