Washi Fun -Hello

Morning all, happy Sunday!
I've been playing with my Washi Tape again!
I just love the stuff! Fantastic for doing a card in a flash!

The sentiment was simply printed from my PC then 
I added the washi tape & a trio of buttons. The colours are 
actually a closer match in real life but the camera just wouldn't
capture that! This card was ready in under 10 mins!
Thanks for popping in!
I'm entering this card in my blogging friends brithday challenge
Creative With Monika
Monika asked us to case one of her cards!
I chose the no design paper &  Hello sentiment  from her butterfly card.

 Hi everyone,
 I'm back again, can you believe it?
I have two cards to share with you today, both CAS!

The first is an A6 Kraft base.
I embossed two lots of two lines, not sure they're showing very well in the photo.
I then wrapped some some button twine around & tied in a bow.
I added a die cut flower & hello, are from some lovely blog candy that I got
a while back, from the lovely CG. I've used some of the bits & pieces 
up  already but still have lots left!
I rounded the corner with a woodware punch & added a panel inside
for a message to be written on.
I'd like to enter this card in the challenge at:

The second is a 6"x6" sqaure linen embossed cs base.
I added another of the diecut hello's from CG.
I added a couple of embossed lines at the bottom
then created a border using a Sakura Stardust gel pen.
I tried lots of other little embellishments, but on my home from
work I had a lightbulb moment & decided to use buttons.
The best colour match were these little heart buttons which I've had
in my stash for ever. It was a tiny little packet, with 3 different sizes
& they seem to be never ending! lol

Flights Of Fancy

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well so far!
It's time for my DT Inspiration for the latest challenge over at 
I've made a little A6 CAS card!

I've used two of the images kindly supplied by this mont's sponsor
Doctor Digi's House of Stamps
The first image is Captain Thunderpants, the second, which I've cropped into the
call out bubble is Phyllis the Festive Fairy.
Captain Thunderpants has a flight of fancy that he & Phyllis will
one day fly of into the wild blue yonder together...........
although I'm not sure how Phyllis would feel about that if she knew!
I used my Promarkers & flexmarkers to colour up the images.

The sentiment is printed using a free font called winged.
I used a picket fence die to cut along the top of the image panel.
I also added the strip that was left along the top of the card.
Not sure why, I just liked the effect!
I added a panel to the inside which wat die cut with a Spellbinders Rectangle 
Hope to see you over at The Crafting Cafe!
I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:

More Gorjuss Girls

 Good Morning all,
Here's another selection of little cards I made using this month's cover gift from the 
Creativity Magazine

I simply added some lace & papers from my stash,
 a Happy Birthday peel off & gems to embellish.
The decoupage & sentiment were mounted on foam tape for some dimension

A get well card, again using items from my stash.

Finally a little Thank You card.
I used the lace for a bunting effect, matted the decoupage on to a Spellbinders 
die cut oval which I had inked with Spun Sugar & Milled Lavender Distress inks.
The sentiment is die cut & I added a little sparkle using a 
Sakura Clear Star gel pen.
I'd like to enter this card in the Use Kraft Card challenge over at Little Claire's
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really enjoyed playing with this
little cover gift & managed to make a total of 8 cards with it!
Happy Crafting!

Washi Fun - Happy Birthday & A Surprise

Hi all, I've been having some fun with my Washi Tape!
I love the stuff, it's just perfect for a quick CAS card.
You might recall I made a few cards using this at Christmas time!
Not much to say about this wee card really, it's A6, the flower is from my
stash, I got them in the pound shop ages ago & I printed the 
sentiment onto the base card which is Linen Embossed CS.
That's about it really!
I'd like to enter this card in a couple of challenges:
Clear It Out - Anything Goes

Oh yes & the surprise!
I've not had the best couple of days, nothing serious at all, just trivial things
but when I got home from work, I had a note from the postie
to say he'd left a parcel for me with a neighbour!
I am expecting a delivery but it's a pair of tweezers, so I was intrigued........
Anyhoo, I rang the neighbours doorbell & the man of the house appeared with a huge
padded envelope! I was mystified by this point!
I chatted for a bit as you do but I was dying to get into the house
to investigate further.
Well, here's what this surprise parcel contained!

How amazing is that?
It's from a very lovely friend, very lovely indeed!
This has totally made my day!
I'm sure my Mum & I will find this very handy for making our 
fundraising cards for Breakthrough!
Thanks so much Nikki! You're one special lady! xx

A Gorjuss Gift

Hi everyone,
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend if you celebrate it.
It was lovely to be off work for 4 days straight.
We managed to get out for lunch  enjoyed a few walks in the unexpected sunshine
over the last couple of days.
Anyhoo, I got a copy of the Creativity Magazine which had a 
Santoro cover gift this time, so I decided to have a bit of a play!
I make loads of cards to sell for charity & as a result, I like to be as
 thrifty as I possible when making them!
Here's what I made using the freebie & some stuff mainly from my scraps box!

Decoupage, buttons & paper were from the kit.
The ribon is upcycled from a christmas gift set & the lace was
a scrap from another project,
To be thrifty, I often split the decoupage & use every second layer to
make another image. You'll see a card I made using this in a mo!
The sentiment was cut with a Tattered Lace die.

Again, a scrap of lace, the gift set ribbon & some of the ribbon tags from a top.
The sentiment tag was part of the kit & I added a peel of greeting!

This is the second layers of the decoupage matted & layered then placed on an oval die cut.
The ribon is from another gift set & the lace is from my stash!
After I had stuck it on, it srtuck me that it would have looked lovely as bunting!
Bling from my stash & sentmiment from another Tattered Lace die

A kraft base for this one, a Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch added a
little bit of detail. The sentiment was a Tonic tape runner, which has lots od
different fonts. The little flower is from Do Crafts I think, 
it's been kicking about my stash forever!

Last one for now, I used papers from my scrap box,
the sentiment is another font from the tape runner, a Tattered Lace 
die cut heart button & some die cut flourishes to embellish
as well as a scrap of lace & some upcycled ribbon!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Gnome Computer

Hi all, finally I'm back with another little gnome....
I mean a card to share with you!
I just can't get enough of these little guys! They're so cute!

Meet Gnome Computer from La Pashe!
I totally love this little dude & knew exactly whom I wanted to make this card for!
As usual, he's available in several different formats,
on the Gnomes & Fairies CD, as a decoupage sheet & as a Flippin' sheet.
The DP's are from the CD too!
There are so many papers, which would be perfect for so many things, 
 they are not just limited to match up with the images.

Here's a closer look, I cut him out & layered with pinflair gel,
then matted & layered on to an 8x8in card blank. 
The ribbon is from SU

As you can just about see here, I decorated the inside of the card too!
Thanks for popping in!
