It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

I thought maybe it was time to do a Christmas card 
so I thought I'd do a fun one for a change.
The clear stand is covering up the letter "a" in the sentiment
which came from a set of Christmas stamps in a crafter's magazine a few years ago.




Items Used:

I thought I'd make it look a bit like a room with wall paper.

Window is from First Edition Craft Dies - Windows  (There are four windows)
Christmas Tree from Frantic Stamper - Oregon Fir
Clouds are Memory Box - Fluffy Clouds

My favourite Stamps though are the 
Tim Holtz  Stamps - Mini Bird Crazy and Things.
It has everything you could want to 
place these birds in any situation.
They are so versatile and well worth the outlay.
I also used the Tim Holtz Dies - Mini Crazy Birds and Things
Often I manage to get colour in their eyes and the dies can cut out 
fresh ones so they are nice and white.

Great time to buy them with Bizzy Bec having 25% off store wide.

Don't forget to get a card made and added to our challengers.
You never know - you might win!

Keep enjoying your craft.

Crafty Hugs,

the unfolding


I used the technique "misting with markers"
This was actually a 'tester' which turned out rather nice although
it was not on water colour paper, but have decided I like it as my
design team inspiration hopefully  for you.


Our challenge is on at Bizzy Bec's
I hope this inspires you to join and and have fun
and perhaps be a winner.

Goods used:
Penny Black stamp called 'the unfolding'

Spinner Square Pop Up

Here at last, running a little later than usual.

I thought I'd use my newest Die set today
Karen Burniston - Spinner Square Pop Up
Very reasonably priced and on special at Bizzy Bec's Store.

It's a really fun card to make and pop ups often impress though not much work.
especially when you have the right equipment.






Wild Rose Studio Stamps - Bella and Daisy


It has lots of potential for using many different ways.
I certainly needed the instructions for the first time  click here for instructions.


I did try to video my card to see even the amateur can get it to run smoothly 
but it wasn't compatible with the site. 

Crafty Hugs,

Trick or Treat....

Hi everyone, dropping in today to share my card with you.

My inspiration for this image stems from this month having Halloween at the end of it.  I am not generally one to celebrate anything Halloween but occasionally I like to make a card showcasing something along that theme.  I hope you like her.  I just love the quirkiness of the new Oddball Characters from Stamping Bella.





She has been coloured with two different types of media this time.  For the skin I have used Prisma coloured pencils and the rest of the image was coloured with Copic Markers.

Supplies used:

Stampingbella - Oddball Shopper
Avery Elle Die - Wonky Stitches

Other supplies used are listed here on my blog.


Lots of new goodies have been added to the store so pop on over and check them out.  Also dont forget to join us for this months  'Anything Goes Challenge'.

Until next time

Happy Crafting
