Sketchy Flowers Happy Birthday for DtDF

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

I'm here again with a little Monday Morning Inspiration 
and this week I've been playing with some totally scrummy new MFT stash from 


I love all things floral and these Sketchy Flowers matching stamps and dies are fabulous and so versatile.
You can simply layer the stamped outline with the solid stamped in the ink colour of your choice if you're in a hurry and have no time to colour - or get your preferred colouring medium out and have fun colouring the stamped outline yourself.

For this design I went with the layered stamped look.

Here are the links to the gorgeous stash used:


Have a lovely crafty week - see you next Monday.

Dog & Doggie for Dies to Die For

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you are well and enjoying the glorious weather we are having in the UK - I know for some it is a struggle with the heat but for me personally I love it :o)

Today I would like to share with you my DT make for

DIES TO DIE FOR

I made this card only yesterday morning with the purchases I made at DtDF the day before in Telford - so I broke my record for using new stash the fastest.

There is a 'meaning' behind the choice of images on this card - when Jack was very small he and John would play a game where Jack would say Dog and John would reply Doggie - they would do this repeatedly and for some strange reason they thought it was so funny - the best bit for me was hearing them laugh so much together - so when I saw this set of stamps I just knew I had to have them!!!




John also used to play both the drums and the guitar (not both at the same time lol!!!)

Card Ingredients:

Image: Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Stamp Set
Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Die Set
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Paper: Best Creations Rock Star
Sentiment Stamps - Free with this month's Making Cards

Thanks for popping by and for all your continued support.
Have a fabulous day.

Birthday Cupcake Greetings for Dies to Die For

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
I'm back again with my usual Monday Morning Inspiration for 


And this week I have gone all girlie girlie with a super sweet image from 
I decided to do  bit of paper-piecing - something I've not done in ages.
The rest of the image was coloured with Copics - and I had another go at leaving a little teeny bit of white in the hair - quite pleased with the end result - but still a long way to go.

This card was for my snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby Mae's 4th birthday yesterday


Here's the links to the other items used:

Image & Sentiment: 'Jessica with Cupcakes'
Design Paper: Doodlebug 'Sugar Shoppe'


Hope you have a fabulous crafty week.

Discover Your Wings

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Today I'm here with my usual Monday Morning Inspiration for 

 And this week I have a little piece of 
Home Decor to share with you - using some beautiful elegant stamps by Taylored Expressions


I started by painting an MDF heart using two gorgeous Chalk Paint colours by Viva Decor - Revive and Vintage - Just tore across a piece of paper and masked off one half then painted with one colour and then flipped the paper over and painted the other half with another colour.

When the paint was dry I added some Crackle Medium over the top and when that was dry I stamped the images and sentiment using Ranger Black Archival Ink.

I also stamped one of the large butterflies onto patterned paper and adhered along the body and added   that on top of a stamped butterfly on the MDF heart - lifting the wings for some dimension.

 Here's a link to all of the gorgeous DtDF stash I used:


Hope you had a lovely weekend.
Here's to a fabulous crafty week.
