Dirty Harold

Good Morning & Happy Thursday to you all!

It's time to share my card for Just Inklined with you today!

He looked a bit intimidating so I put him behind a fence to contain him! 
Actually, we don't want him wandering off in his slippers now do we!

then cut out with a  Spellbinders Circle Nestability die and inked with
 Black Soot Distress Ink.

(I have long admired these, then, lucky for me, I won some blog candy,
which included a voucher for LOTV! Yay! I got my stamps!
Thanks Sammy Jean, I loved the chocolate too!)
The sentiments were stamped & then heat embossed with 
Midnight Black EP from Create & Craft

Snowman Skiing

Good morning lovelies!
I hope you're all having a great week!
It's Thursday, which means it's time for my Just Inklined DT card!


I've used Snowman Skiing to make my card this time!
I've had this delightful image for ages, but it never fails to make
 me smile whenever I see it!
The papers I've used have been in my stash for ages too.
They're from papermania as is the little brad in the centre of 
the little (Xcut) die cut snowflake.
The border was made with a Martha Stewart punch.


I coloured this cutie up with my promarkers & flexmarkers.


A little side view for you!

DIY - Flippin Men!

Good Morning peeps!
Here I am with a little DT card I created for
La Pashe 
I used  the Flippin Men DIY download.

I didn't realise that I had run out of the Flippin' Aperture Cards
when I started this but that didn't stop me!

For those of you not familiar with the Flippin' range, it shows the front
& back of an image & you can decoupage both.
 The special aperture cards are designed to allow this.

I decided to use the fun background image provided but
I chopped off the verse which was at the bottom.
I distressed the paper, which is from American Crafts with pair of serated
scissors & some lemon juice, which I browned using my heat gun


Here's the front of the image decoupaged!
I added 3 little metal tool brads at his feet!


The  sentiment was made in my graphics program,
I tried to give that the lemon juice treatment too, but the ink ran,
lol, so I had to print it again! I popped it up on some shaker tape!


A little side view, you can just see the other side of the image inside!


Finally the inside of the card!
Here you can see the reverse of the image!
I had my hubby draw a little pencil plan on the paper but sadly,
 he drew it a bit smaller than I anticipated, so most of it was covered up!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card!

Garden

Good Morning All!
I hope you're all well! 
Here's a little card I made, perfect for the gardner in your life!

This one is for the Best Dad!
I've used the Gardening Tools decoupage download from La Pashe
I inked all the edges with a liquid chalk inkpad & added a matt of brown
card stock. The letters were cut using a sizzix die!
The hessian is from Lidl & was originally intended as a plant tie!
I've also added a couple of little gardening tool charms from my stash!
Here's a closer look at the decoupage.


This one should show the dimension but hey ho, you can't see it very well! lol


You can just about see that I've added some decoration on the 
inside of the card!
