Challenge card

Been slogging away at getting my craft room sorted. Two days and I have one corner sorted!

Decide to take a break and make a card. I used one of the images from Beccy Muir's Welcome Home stamp set.  I coloured the image with watercolours.  The word was a free stamp with a magazine.

Have a lovely day.

Guest Designer card

Was kindly asked to be a Guest Designer at Carlin's Kaartenparadijs challenge. The theme was Birthday +Food/Drink.

I used stamps which came free with a craft magazine and were just perfect for this challenge. I used water colours to colour  the image 
The colourful backing paper was from the inside of an envelope. 

Have a great day.

Christmas makes

Hello and hope you are all keeping warm and dry. It was a perfect weekend for card making and I managed to make 10 Christmas cards and a few more general ones. This is a record for me getting so many Christmas cards done so early.

The designer papers used in both cards came from scrapbooking pads from The Works. I used lots of dies from various manufactures in both cards.  Most of these dies have been in my stash for a while. The cute image in the first card came with a magazine a while back, it also had it's own die. 

It's great to get back to doing some crafting again. 

Entering the first card 

Have a wonderful week. x

Good Luck card

Made this A4 card yesterday. The backing  cards are Hunkydory bought from The Red Kite in Biggleswade. The image was found online and printed 3 times. The image was cut out and decoupaged. 

The die is from Xcut and cut four times and layered up. 

Have a great day.

Life in Full Colour

These are my two projects using Beccy Muir's 'Life in Full Colour' digital stamp set. You can find this set and many more digital and photo-polymer stamps in Beccy's  Place Shop.

For the tag, I printed the black and white head image and then coloured it with Inktense pencils and a water brush. I used a die to cut out the tag shape.

The box was a bit more involved. First I used grey chalk paint to coat the wooden wine box (The Works). The next layered I mixed the Pinkest pink pigment with white gesso and applied it randomly all over the box. I printed the larger  pre-coloured image from the 'Life in Full Colour ' set  onto rice paper and then stuck it to the lid of the wine box.  I printed the words ( Life in Full colour stamp set) and then cut it out and added it to the lid. Then die cut some sprigs and leaves and added it to the beaded flower (The Works).

It's a really easy project and do hope you will be inspired to have a go.

Kumihimo braided key ring

Today at our craft club we did Kumihimo braiding, thanks to Karen for a great session. This was my first time doing Kumihimo braiding and it was fun once you got your head around it. Love my key ring and it's now proudly on my car keys.

Have a great day and stay dry.

Helpful kitty

Life has been a tiny bit busy lately so not much time for blogging. Made some Christmas cards using a free kit which came with a magazine and Patch decided to help with the process. She is a crafter in the making as whenever I start to do play she is there! lol
Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Craft stall results

This was my stall at the Fun Day at our church in Bassingbourn.  It was a great day, lots of brave people abseiled from the church tower, I was not one of those. lol
Special thank you to Brenda (Floral Fantasies) for her donation and support today. Was wonderful to meet in person!

Thankfully I managed to raise in total £91 for my two charities

Only one small painting sold which was a shame. If you are interested in any of them do get in touch.

These are our two babies which have come from Joan at God's little People.

Bit of sewing

I kept seeing these great aprons and desperately wanted one. Finally decided to make one as it looked so simple. I drafted the pattern directly onto the lining fabric and then cut it out of the main fabric. Was really easy to sew once I make a couple of adjustments to the arms and neck. Once the it was sewn I used two screens to print the images onto the apron. 
I am really please with this project.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my projects, they do warm my heart.

Sound off Jean!

I treated myself to some Art Impressions stamps recently and this is one of them. The set is called Sound off Jean and I just love the image and the sentiments. 

The image was stamped and coloured in watercolours and then the background was done with shades of red and brown in watercolours. Once it was dry I stencilled through a Paula Pascual die, to add interest to the edges in brown ink.

The glitter cards (black and purple) were bought from The Works in Royston.
