MFT- Down To Business!

Hi everyone!

Today I've got a clean and simple card to share with you using MFT's Down To Business stamps and matching dies...

I selected some of the stamps and coloured with copics and then cut out with the matching dies. The stitched frame is also MFT. Papers are by Fancy Pants. I then stamped one of the sentiments in PTI Smokey Shadow ink on a piece of the patterned paper and adhered to the bottom. The frame and various elements are raised up on 3d foam pads.


I'm going to be making quite a few male and boy cards over the next few weeks as my stocks are seriously low!!

Lili Of The Valley January Facebook Challenge- Yee Haw!

Yee Haw!! 

Today I'm sharing a DT Collective sample I made for the LOTV January Facebook Challenge which for this month was ANYTHING GOES! As ever there are fantastic prizes on offer!

I coloured Yee Haw with copics and added a Lyra pencil shadow. These papers are by October Afternoon and I distressed them using my Tim Holtz paper distresser. The sentiment is by LOTV stamped on Kraft card and the star embellishments were from a little matching die-cut kit.

Here's your close up!

Bellarific Friday with Ellie Loves Phant

Yep, it's already the second Bellarific Friday of the year! 

Today's theme was a Mojobella sketch (see below). I'm featuring Stuffies Ellie Loves Phant...

Aren't these just the cutest ellies you ever did see? Love how they're snuggling and their trunks intertwined- sooooo sweet! I coloured them with copics and cut out using Lil Inker die. Papers are from Simple Stories- I really liked the contrast of the black with the softer colours and the grey brick wall paper looks great with the grey elephants, no? 

Awwww! Will be giving this to hubby for Valentine's Day! 

Here was your Mojobella sketch- as you can see I moved the sentiment strip as it fitted in with my image a bit better.

Next week's challenge is a theme- FRIENDSHIP! A nice and easy one- so many stunning friendship images to pick from! I'm going to be using a cute Woodsie.

All the usual challenge deets apply and don't forget by entering, you've got the chance to win some Bella bucks to spend in store.

Stamping Bella New Release continues- Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose

So today I'm sharing another sneaky peek from the new Stamping Bella release featuring another Tiny Townie Garden Girl. This beauty is Rose...

Oh my goodness! I think she is one of my fav Tiny Townies ever! She's so beautiful- I squealed when I first saw her. I love her loose curly locks with the leafy garland- it has a such romantic feel to it. Rose was coloured with copics and cut out using a stitched oval die. These papers are by Bo Bunny- quite an unusual colour combo but as soon as I had this image, I knew they were the papers I wanted to use because they have that same romantic feel. Finally I added some hot fix crystals and added some die-cut Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies.

Close up. Isn't she just the sweetest? Look at the beautiful layers on that rose- such fun to colour.

The sneaky peeks continue over the weekend over on Blogabella and we've got that new range coming so don't forget to check it out!! Yes, I love to tease you!  Release day is on MONDAY 16th!

Yay yay yay!!!

I am SO pleased to tell you that I have finally finished my CRAFT ROOM TOUR page!! Click on my Craft Room menu tab and you will see the whole tour with loads of photos and storage information. I do hope you enjoy it!

MORE EXCITING NEWS!!! I have also set up a YouTube Channel! This is a big thing for me as I'm really shy and not tec-savvy at all. The first video I've recorded is my craft room tour but I'm also planning on doing regular craft and stationery hauls, flip through videos, storage tips and process videos.

I'd be so delighted if you would support me by subscribing to my channel and giving me feedback if there are areas you'd like to see me record a video on!
