Let The Drinking Begin!!

 Hi Crafty Friends,

A fun card to share with you today.

It looks like it took a few minutes to make but it actually took me 2 days to sort how I wanted to lay out the stamps, get the colours right and then make-CAS yes, but this one, not so quick!

I just love this stamp set from Visible Image

I got the design from the sketch-which I loved as soon as I saw it-at CAS Colour and Sketches
Colours inspired by Cupcake Inspirations
And as this is for a very special 21st Birthday, it is off to Addicted to Stamps and More-Birthdays.

Have a fun day x

Hi There,

Hope you are all well.

Yesterday I had a play with making some stencil backgrounds using ink blending, something I rarely do!

As there are lots of Spring Challenges around and I need lots of Birthday cards I went with floral stencils.

Here is one of the backgrounds I used to make card:

I sponged the floral background with distress inks then added all the rest are bits and bobs from my stash-that centre is a cut off from an old water colour background.
To finish off I added some sparkle to the butterfly and a simply enamel dot!

A very different card for me but fun to break out of the comfort zone!!


I will enter into:

Time Out-Spring-(yes girls...I did make this and do the blending-wonders never cease!!)

Seize The Birthday-option Signs of Spring

Tic-Tac-Toe-I went for the right vertical line-ink blending, embellishment and stencil

Enjoy The Little Things!

 Hi All

I am sharing a card I made the other day when I felt a bit crafty.

I really like the clean and fresh look of this card and made it especially for the challenge at AAA Cards-option not taken....although this could be debatable with all the green space we have in England and yes even in London!

Stamps all from Funky Fossil Designs

Have a good day x

A Card!!

 Hi All

Been a while since I actually did some crafting, life has been a little tough at the moment but today I did sit myself down and had a go at making a few cards. 

I haven't been visiting much or been on IG as much as normal but hopefully will be back in bits here and there when I can. 

Here is one:

I used all Funky Fossil Designs stamps for this card.

The idea for this came from the current challenge at Less is More-Occupations. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and just went through my stamps and came across this set and thought of bee keeping (fancy name for this-Apiarist!). In London-where I live-more and more people are keeping bees to make their own honey to sell...and yummy it is!

I used the design for this from the current challenge at AAA Cards-along the edge-I would say for the reason I give above about our increasing bee keepers in this country, I did go with the option.

Hope you are all well and take care my friends x

CASology #402 Fluffy

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology

Our cue word for this month is 'Fluffy'.

My mind went straight to feathers...probably beacuase I was playing with my cat and he has lots of fluffy feather toys!

So I went with this!

Simple stamping with a tiny gem!
