Bundle of joy

Hello, Rebecca here with you today and I have a cute little baby card to share with you. 

I've used the adorable Jane's Doodles Jungle Baby stamp set and some Doodlebug papers and because it is in yellow it could be used for a boy or a girl.  To make the giraffe I stamped the image onto patterned paper and then added accent using a Promarker- I love this technique because it reduces the amount of colouring needed but adds dimension to your characters. 

The finishing touch is a bit of ribbon and some buttons!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Isabella Loves Ice Cream

Happy Saturday everyone :o)

I've used a gorgeous Stamping Bella stamp for today's card... that fab sentiment comes with her too.

The '40th' sentiment was made up using a mix of the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler and Alphadot sets... perfect for making up your own sentiments, and such a fun font too.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely weekend :o)

Happy birthday- RARW!!!

Morning, Rebecca here with a cute card which is ideal for a little boy.

I stamped the Woodware large sentiment stamp and the Janes Doodles dinosaurs onto a selection of Doodlebug papers. Then I've fussy cut each one out, I've also added some shading to the dinosaurs using Promarkers. Then came the easy bit, layering everything up. I stamped the sentiment stamp onto the card base, and placed the matching paper pieces over the top- fixing them with 3D gel foam pads. Next I popped the dinosaurs around the letters, added some grey Promarker shading to "ground" everything and finally a few sequins.

If you like these dinosaur stamps (and who wouldn't) there is currently 10% off all the Jane's Doodles stamps in the Craft Mojo store and with free postage over £25.

Purple thanks

Happy Saturday :o)

Here's my DT card for this week, using some gorgeous new goodies from the Craft Mojo shop... Please excuse the dodgy photo - the card base is made from lilac card and the camera just doesn't seem to like it!

I cut the Paper Smooches 'thanks' die 3 times, stuck them together, and coated the top one with Wink of Stella... and then added some of those fab Doodlebug sequins - it's the first time I've used these and I really love them!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :o)

Another Paper Smooches Get Well

As promised a "same, same but different" card.  This time I scribbled a messy rainbow effect onto a piece of card using spectrum noir pens (prefer copics) I don't like how the green/blue blended.  Then cut it out using the paper smooches get well die.  I then cut out the area it was going to fit into with kraft card.

I smothered the rainbow get well in glossy accents (don't be inpatient like I was and stick your finger in it! lol)

Then stuck it all back together.

Thank you for popping by today.

Get Well

I think this is one of my all time favorite Paper Smooches dies.  The paper is from a Doodlebug pad.  
I kept all those fiddly little bits that make the carpet a mess, and stuck them back in.  In real life this is rather pretty (sorry about the badly lit pic)

Tomorrow I will be back with another card, the same but different to this.  Or as they same in Thailand, "Same, same, but different!" lol

Thank you for popping by.

The day I get half decent at taking pics will hopefully arrive soon! I need some lessons from Lisa & Rebecca.  
Daylight depending I will try and take another.  

  I used a butterfly and sentiment from the Jane's Doodles Butterflies set, and used numerous Memento ink's.  I masked each butterfly using some post-it notes.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Evening, Rebecca here, don't worry it's not Monday again I just wanted to share a CAS card made using new crafty goodies including a brand new die from MFT. 

I've use the MFT Floral Fusions die to cut a piece of white card, which I've mounted onto a white base- don't you just love the white-on-white look?

Next I used the MFT blueprints 12 die set to cut a little banner and then added the "happy" which is cut from lovely pink Doodlebug paper using a Wplus9 die. Finally, I've added a very generous sprinkle of MME pink enamel dots and a coating of Wink of stella to the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by,

Morning, Rebecca here and I can't believe it's Monday already which means I'm back with a Craft Mojo DT project and today I'm sharing a card made with a new-to-me stamp set, which is the first I've tried from this company. The stamp set is called Jungle Baby and it is from Janes's Doodles and I totally adore the designs and they stamp beautifully too!!!

I've simply stamped the elephant, added the ballons, string and sentiment which are all from the same set too. Then I coloured him him with pro markers and added a touch of a Wink of stella to the ballons. I think the glitter paper in the background sets him off a treat!

Thanks for stopping by today,
