I am still having great fun working from my box of goodies from Yumi & Fumi. I coloured up the adorable Fumi with Turtle image again. I used the My Little Shoebox papers from the prize pack and again went to town on some of them with rub on’s – I think I am starting to get addicted to them. You can see them on the blue tag peeking out from behind the image and also the sentiment is a rub on.
I fussy cut the image and mounted it onto a journalling card cut out from the papers.
Its hard to see in the photo but I put glossy accents on the turtles shell to give it some gloss and dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like it!
I have a tutorial up on the Crafting Ireland Blog today showing how to make this fun shaker card. For this card I used the A Cottage Home set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Its a very simple way to add some fun and movement to a card/image.
This view shows the card with the door open to show more of the beads and sequins inside….
And a close up of the house itself….
I hope you check out the tutorial and enjoy trying out this fun technique!
Hi all, today I am showcasing an older 2 Cute Ink image over on the 2 Cute Ink DT blog. I used the adorable Monster Mash image on my card. I love this image with his little dance buddy its super cute! I coloured it using felt tip markers and had fun with the colours I used! I then went with a grey card base to make the image really pop but added some hints of orange on it to add a teeny bit more fun to the card. What is not to love about a super bright and fun monster really right?
Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check out the Monster Mash image in the store, its a brilliant image, especially for boy cards!
I recently won a big blog event over at Yumi & Fumi Handmade, and boy was it an amazing prize….
This amazing box of goodies turned up in my office and it was so difficult to concentrate on work with all of this sitting beside me! I spent the weekend colouring images and finally got to make something last night.
I used the adorable Fumi with Turtle image on this tag I created. Everything I used on this tag came from the box of goodies….
I added the green papers as background and tore a strip of the blue to add some more colour. I used some of the rub on’s to add pattern. I used the papers – the sheet made up of journalling cards to use as a mount for my image. I cut it down a bit first and used the off cut strip for the sentiment – again a rub on. I fussy cut Fumi and glued her down along her left side and foam mounted along the right side to give her dimension and make it really look like she was peeking out from behind something. I added some ribbon and enamel dots from the package and called it done!
I am going to enter this in the Yumi & Fumi challenge – Anything But a Card!
Here is another of my projects for the Sarah Hurley Lookbook Volume 3 using the Sarah Hurley Bookworm collection. I am a total bookworm so I love this collection. I altered an old box I have had for donkeys years. I inked the edges up with a copper metallic ink dabber. I then cut the papers down and matted them on the box. I used some embellishments in the kit to print and cut out and stick on the box.
Inside I used some of the tab dividers to seperate out my Journalled 365 cards – I am using the box to store these.
You can see the dividers a bit better below….
I love these Journalling cards, I like to use them as a top 5 things I loved in a week, its a great way to quickly document things!
Its anything goes challenge time over at Annabelle Stamps Blog. I have been trying to have fun crafting and enter their challenges again but have been so busy I have not gotten a chance to. So it was great to just have fun, break out my Annabelle supplies and create this card. I used up lots of scraps from my desk too so it was an added bonus! I used the Easter Blessings set for the frame for my image. I then used my favourite All Things Grow set to stamp the butterflies.
I inked these in two tones of distress inks and misted them before stamping on watercolour paper. I then fussy cut out the frame and painted it with distress inks to match my background papers. I used a gorgeous wood grain paper on kraft card. I used some of the super cute Annabelle Gingham Twine and created a faux bow. I added some Pumpkin sprinkles then too.
Oh and I stamped the sentiment in grey beside the butterflies to make it subtle and make sure the butterflies and frame shone.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed!
I recently had to make a card for a baby girls first birthday. I don’t have many stamps that work for cards like this. So I cut the 1 using my eCraft and pulled this all together. The pink scalloped circle, the butterflies and the number 1 and the happy birthday stamping are all actually nearly the same shade in real life. The photo seemed to throw the colours off a bit. I matted the papers on grey card to make them pop and then mounted on a yellowy/cream card base.
The scalloped circle is on foam pads for dimension. I had to keep in mind this card was being posted though so couldn’t go too crazy with embellishments and dimension! Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like it!
Just stopping by with a quick make. I used an adorable image from 2 Cute Ink called I Cherryish You. I coloured it with my Inktense pencils but only blended the pencils with one another, I didn’t add any water to them. This left a lovely textured look on them. I used some papers from a kit I have had for ages. I stamped a banner from the Lawn Fawn banner set and stamped a congratulations in it. Some lace and pearls finished it off then.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed it!
Here are some more of my projects for the Sarah Hurley Lookbook Volume 3 using the Sarah Hurley paper packs to make some projects with. I worked with the A Few Of My Favourite things pack on these. As I said the other day I just love these papers both the design and quality!
First up is a card I made. I wanted to have fun with a card and a bit geeky too! I used the graph paper from the kit and drew a chart on it. I had to check my math on this one with my hubby (a Phd in Physics and maths geek). It is supposed to imply that as time increases so does our love. I added some ink splatters on it to give it a authentic look. A little heart with glossy accents on it adds the finishing touch.
Next up is a mini notebook I altered the front of. I covered it in the moustache paper. I then added a little flag banner and wrote notes on this and doodled on some faux stitching. I then added some fun elements from Sarah Hurley, the cog, moustache etc.
Simple idea but cute and effective!
I got a birthday gift of this fabulous Waltzing Mouse Stamps set called My Heart from a fab friend…..thank you Sandie! So while playing around with some pink scraps decided to make a quick tag with it. I used a scrap with a scalloped die cut to frame the heart from the set. Woodgrain, borders, hearts and super sentiments – love this set. There may also be some diamond dust stickles on this tag – this is really going to make Sandie proud of me
