Up, up and away !

Well it is time for another new challenge and new release over at jellypark friends. This time around the challenge is 
Pretty pastels

I used the oh so sweet mouse & balloon digi stamp available at the jellypark store here.

5 reasons to smile :)

Its time for a new challenge over at Jellypark Friends and this time around we want to see your craft projects featuring chocolate or cakes !

I used the super cute Girl & cake stamp and coloured it with my usual mix of pro-markers and prisma pencils. I also done a little bit of paper piecing - I soooo love my digi papers for this as I can use the same DP that's on my base card but I can size it to suit my image. 

Here is my card
The lovely DP & the journalling card are both from the 
Kristin Cronin-Barrow remember to smile digi kit (available from sweet shoppe designs) and the gorgeous die cut rose is the sonora rose from memory box (a birthday gift from my mum - thanks mum x) I added some stickles to the rose & cupcake wrapper and some glossy accents to the cherry on top ! Voila !!

Don't forget to hop on over to the Jellypark challenge blog to see all the fabulous DT inspiration and get all the details for the challenge x

Shabby birthday chic ?!

Its time for the 1st SFTW challenge of 2014 and to ease you into the crafty new year we're making it easy for you to play along as the challenge this week is
"Happy birthday" 
Easy peasy so make a happy birthday card or project with some stamping on it and enter it into the draw x

Here is my card
So one of the crafty gifts I received for Christmas was Frantage :) and I must admit to  getting a little carried away with it on this card ! Ha ha yep I don't think there is much on this card which has not been kissed with a little bit of frantage ! It was the first play I've had with it so I'm sure you can forgive me can't you ?!

My Image is from a set of pergamano clear stamps called flower girl I have had them since 
forever ! I coloured her in with my Prisma pencils then die cut with a spellbinders oval, then added frantage (the very first splashes !) and the beaded edge. DP's are a mix of Kaisercraft Sweet nothings and HOTP all of which have been given distressed edges and frantaged ! 
Die cuts include swirls from , butterflies from crealie and leaf/branch from Joycraft (I think !) The die cut bow and flowers from stash. The chipboard frame is from prisma.

I hope you like it I had a great time playing with a new style of card :)

Don't forget to hop on over to the SFTW challenge blog to check out all the DT inspiration and get all the challenge details.

Baby blues :)

Well I had a lovely Christmas break I hope you all did too and to be honest I really didn't have any enthusiasm for getting back to my craft table but once I started I realised how much I missed it and I had such a ball playing with paper I now can't keep away from my craft table ! So expect many more creations soon !
Today is my 1st Jellypark project of the year and our new challenge this week is 
"Buttons & bows"
I chose to use one of my (many) favourite Jellypark images the super cute dancing rabbit which is on sale at the moment for just £1 over at the jellypark store

Here is my card
I made a baby boy card I coloured that cute image with pro-markers and added some shading with my prisma's. I fussy cut him out and added texture with my ball tool. I mounted him onto a card panel which I washed with my H2O's then embossed with a embossing folder. The DP's are ancient from stash and I'm unsure of the brand - sorry ! 

Don't forget to check out all the fantastic inspiration from the DT as well as the new releases over at the jellypark friends challenge blog.

Believe :)

This weeks new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend is an easy peasy one, especially with Christmas just around the corner, we want you to use some red - yep that's it ! Remember it does not have to be a Christmas project just as long as you use some red and, of course, some stamping !

Here is my card made with a super cute Saturated Canary image who is also our lovely sponsor this fortnight.
I coloured the fabulous image first with my pro-markers then added some shading with my prismas. The DP's are all from the Sherry K Christmas digi paper pack. The dress and the sentiment were both pieced onto the same Spotted DP - I just resized the print in word - another huge advantage of using digital papers :)
The snowflakes were diecut using my new (just couldn't resist them !) crafts too fresh snow snowflakes - I am so pleased with them they will def' feature on most, if not all, of my Christmas cards which I am only just starting on !!!

Don't forget to check out the Stampin' for the weekend challenge blog where you can see all the DT inspiration and get all the details for the challenge.

With love at Christmas - mwah x

The new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend is 
Feeling festive
Yep we want to see your Christmas creations :)

I made a card using my SU christmas ornament stamp and the matching die.
I stamped and die cut 4 of the largest ornaments and folded each in half then stuck them together back to back to make a 3D ornament which I layered onto an oval then a spellbinders label. I also created a hanging loop with wrapped wire.

The lovely studded border is from an old websters pages kit - I love it so much I haven't wanted to use it !!! I added a dark red chiffon ribbon and bow with a button, gem and a sentiment.
