Albert

Good morning lovelies,
It's Thursday again which means it's time for my
 Just Inklined card for this week.


I used the wonderful Albert to make an Anniversary card this time!
He's such a sweetie but I can see him as a bit of a Hell's Angel
in his younger days!
I opted for a Monochromatic theme for this card.
The papers I've used are from the Male Craft Pad from

This sketch from The Sketch File 
was the inspiration for the layout of my card


I coloured Albert with my Flexmarkers, cut with a round Spellbinders Die
then inked with Old Photo Distress ink, whilst still in the die.


The sentiment is from LOTV, I stamped it with clear ink then
heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.
The ribbon is upcycled from a top & the buttons are from my stash.
Thanks for popping in today, I love it when you do!

Fall Colours

Good Morning all!
I've finally managed to sort out all the wobbling about on my blog &get 
all my little friends & followers faces back to the top!

The card I have to share today is my second GDT card for


I have truly enjoyed being a Step Sister this month! 
Thank you all so much for inviting me!

The theme for this challenge is 
Here's my card!


I used a Kraft CS 6x6in base.
I embossed a mat of Ivory paper with the Creative Expressions
 Leaves Mask then added Vintage Photo & Tea Dye Distress Inks.
The burlap/hessian was part of a fabulous blog candy I won earlier this year.
The felt flowers are from my stash as is the leaf trim.
The sentiment stamp is from a Do Crafts See D's set.
I stamped it with clear ink then heat embossed with 
Papermania copper embossing powder
This card was inspired by the photo over at 



On the inside of the card, I added another mat of the 
embossed ivory paper. Whilst embossing,I tried to block of the middle section 
with a piece of CS to leave a plain panel to write on but
 it didn't work quite as well as I planned so I had to add
another little mat of plain cs.

I really enjoyed making this card, I hope you like it!

Black & White Anniversary

Good morning all!
I have a card to share with you today!
It's an Anniversary card that I made using the Tonic Studios Dies
which I purchased recently. I have to say I made a mistake & this wasn't 
actually what I thought I had bought but hey ho,
 a happy accident it would appear!


I used white linen embossed card stock for the base & the die cuts.
A matt of silver mirror card, then a matt of black embossed card
from the Pure Elegance Kit by Lelli-Bot Crafts whichI won as a blog candy.

I created the sentiment in my graphics programme as I just couldn't find 
what I was after anywhere. I've added it here for you if you'd like it!

All I ask is please don't share. If you want to tell your friends about it that's great, 
they are more than welcome to pop over to pick it up too.
If you do use it, I'd appreciate if you added a link back to my blog!
To save the image to your pc, just click on the image to enlarge it then 
right click &save.
The sentiment was cut out using a Marianne Creatable die.


I added a few little gems from my stash just to finish it off!
Thanks for popping by, I hope you like it!
I'm off to deliver this card now!

Happy New Job

Good Morning all!
I have a little card to share with you!
Today would normally be my Just Inklined day 
but as my card has already been posted on my blog I thought I'd
share a little something else with you!
This is for a work colleague, who was promoted.


Her day to day job won't change too much other than she'll be more 
involved in decision making & planning, which I reckon means she's actually
been doing her new job for a while already!

I used an A6 base of white linen embossed CS then used some
snippets of vibrant pink & orange papers from my stash.
The green leafy paper is from Lidl! 
Some of the leaves are embossed with gloss & glitter
The sentiment was made in my graphics programme.
I cut it out with a circle nestie then inked with a liquid chalk ink pad.
The chipboard Butterflies are by Dovecraft I think.
I added a couple of gems from my stash!


A little side view.
I'm hoping it's funky but not too out there!
