Crazy Cats Anniversary Card

  33 years ago today, we got hitched! Wow! Where did the time go?! 

  First time inking up my Crazy Cat stamps. Love the matching dies too! I used a mix of the new Distress Crayons (the vintage set) and coloured pencils for the cats. Tried to make them the colour of our fur baby, Abby. She's an Abyssinian.   

  Liquid Pearls all around the edge, with some doodling. Wooden heart inked with Distress Ink Aged Mahogany. 

  The words are stickers from Cosmo Cricket, Tiny Text:Together sheet.


The inside.


The back.


  For the past few years, Mike has given me store bought cards for our anniversary and my birthdays, that look like they were handmade. 

  This is the one he gave me today:
  Love it! And of course I keep them all! Might use some of the embellies on them too! Lol!


  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MIKE!

A Sharp Dressed Man

  Happy Birthday Mike! 

  Today is Mike's birthday, and this is the dapper card I made him.

  Love this paper set! It's TH Dapper collection. The Stamp is from a TH/Stampers set I got at Michael's which included stencils. Love this guy!

  Used a giant tag, folded in half. The dies are from TH/Sizzix: Vintage Cabinet Card and Tattered Banners. The title was typed out and printed off.

The inside.

The Back.

  Hope you have a marvellous day and thanks for stopping by!

Not A People Person

  "Do I look like a freakin' people person?#*!"

  Been awhile since I used my Stampotique stamps! I do love the "freaky" people by Daniel Torrente. You either hate 'em or love 'em! Lol!

  Stampotique's challenge for this week is, "Anything But Black".  I always use black to stamp my images, so this time I used StazOn Timber Brown, and Archival Coffee.


 This pic shows the top. I used the piece I tore off the bottom of the tag and rolled it, scrunched up and added some blue, pink and brown tulle, then stapled it in place. Added a wooden star on top of the staple.


  Closeup. Lots of stencils, Distress Inks, water, coloured pencils, drywall tape, sequins and Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is also from Stampotique.


  The back. A couple more Stampotique stamps.

Dream With Your Heart

 This is the first Unity Angie Girl stamp I ever bought and it is my favourite! I paper pieced her and used my coloured pencils. 

  Fussy cut the flowers which are from the same stamp set. Added some Distress Rock Candy Stickles to them to give them some crunch, Liquid Pearls in the centres.

  Cut out the stamped sentiment. Added a couple of wood hearts, which I inked with DI Mahogany. 

  All paper used is from 2 Prima collections. Epiphany and Butterfly.

  The paper bow is TH Bow Tied Decorative Strip die.


  The back. The sentiment is from another Unity Angie Girl set called, Give Love, Laugh Lots.

  There's another weekly challenge on the Unity Facebook page. This week's challenge is: Use any Unity Girl stamps.

  Long Weekend! Woo Hoo! Have a great one! Fire up the BBQ!


  Thanks for stopping by!

Share Your Smile ATC

   Found some pre-cut ATC size canvas in my stash on Sunday and made a project for the latest Unity challenge, "Photo inspiration"

  I don't have any Unity butterflies, but this comes very close! The sentiment is also a Unity stamp from a set which included a dress form. Both sets are from their Itty Bitty line.

  I added 4 colours of Distress Ink to the canvas. Stamped the heart image, then stamped it again on white card stock to colour with pencils. 

  Added some Liquid Pearls, Stickles, and doodling around the edge. This was a quick project, but I like how it turned out!


  Thanks for stopping by!

Sing Your Heart Songs




   I made this card for the May challenge in a Flickr group I'm in. The theme is "Winged Things"

  This is one of the "new to me" stamps I just recently bought. A Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz wood mounted stamp.

  Paper pieced her. Used Washi Tape, drywall tape, a metal button and a Dew Drop. The wooden heart I inked with Distress Ink, Rusty Hinge and added Distress Stickles, Rusty Hinge to give it some "crunch". Used some gold Liquid Pearls to her crown. Little bit of doodling around the edge of the card.

  The inside. Paper used is Basic Grey "Grand Bazaar". Sentiment is from the Stampers Anonymous/TH set called, "Good Thoughts"

  The back and front.

  I also made another card, but I can't post it just yet!

  Had a fabulous time at the crop with my crafty friends! Met some new friends too!

  Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!

To Fairyland


  I attended a crop yesterday and made this ATC for a Flickr group I'm in. The theme for the May challenge is "Winged Things"

  The cute little fairy is called, "Agnes Ketto" and is from Stamping Bella.

  Used watercolour paper and watercolored pencils for the background. Stamped her, then stamped her again on patterned paper and paper pieced her. 

  Added some Stickles and Liquid Pears, sequins and Dew Drops. 

  The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets stamp set, called "Fairyland"

  Have a few more of the Ketto stamps. Must make some more ATC's! So cute!

  I made a card too, which I will post later.

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're getting inky!

Watercolour Travel Wagon

  Watercolour pencils. Not used much, but I think I'm going to get them out more! I love to go outside the lines when I do use them. Makes it more whimsey!

  These 2 stamps are from Unity and are from their Itty Bitty collection, called "Travel Wagon". This stamp set along with another set, I won "honourable mention" in last week's challenge, "Grey & Teal", which was my last blog post.

  Added some free hand doodling along the sides, and a strip of Washi Tape at the bottom. 

  On the flowers I added Liquid Pearls and Distress Inks. Popped up the 2 larger flowers by paper piecing. A couple of stars added to finish it off.

  This sentiment stamp is from another Unity stamp called "Willow Girl", from their Angie Girl collection. Added some watercolours around the sentiment.

  I adhered some of the Washi Tape to paper and then used a heart punch. A couple of sequins for the corner, and more doodling.

The back

  This card is for the Unity Stamp Facebook challenge this week, called "Itty Bitty". You must use an Itty Bitty stamp. 

  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're getting crafty!
