I’m not saying I don’t enjoy the days that I’m not eating chocolate cake

Hi, Emily here sharing a card featuring one of the stamps in the Lovely Pandas set by Gerda Steiner.

I’ve coloured my image using Distress Inks on my super QCAS one layer card.  The sentiment was computer generated and printed before I stamped up the image.

Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Antique Linen, Black Soot & Ground Espresso

Don’t forget to play along in our current challenge, the theme is always anything goes and you could win five digis of your choice.  And for more inspiration follow us over at Instagram at BizzyBec3

Wild Things!

Susan here from 

Who doesn't love Darkroom Door?
I made this card for my eldest's brother's birthday 
He turned 83 yesterday - he laughed when he got it. 

I have some DRD that is sooooo old it is presented in tins!
I also have some newer ones and intend to get newer ones again in the next month or so

The sentiment I used today is not a new one
but I know that they have four fabulous new ones out this month and
I will be getting at least one of these!

Things used to make this card:

Memory Box dies - Distressed Baptisia 30044

Small smiling hippo = I found this in my Darkroom Door stamp boxes
but not sure if it is from DRD: however, it is so cute and it is smiling......

Coloured with Prisma Coloured pens

Just a Little Lovely - Bouquet....

Hi everyone, my turn on the blog today.

My card is one that I made for my sister who this week celebrated her birthday.  I love how the card came together I even managed to incorporate a shaker into the card.  They are one of my very favourite cards to make - so fun.  

The use of the gold foil card as a backing, for the sentiment and numbers  combined with the gold and coppery sequin mix ties it all together.

The image was coloured with Copic Markers and detailed with Prisma Coloured Pencils.

supplies used:
Pink Fresh Studio Stamp & Die - Just a Little Lovely
Lawn Fawn Dies
Sue Wilson Mini Expressions Die - Happy Birthday
Dress My Craft Sequins - Copper Mix
(Not listed but can be ordered)
Prisma Coloured Pencils - 150 set

Thank you for looking

Until next time - Happy Crafting

The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed in black embossing powder.

Penny Black : Joyful Wishes stamp ( by request)
