Fab at 40

Howdie ... I'm on a card making roll but today I am sharing another card from last year as I need to take photos and edit the rest of the cards when i get back off vacation.


I made this card for my friend Mel for her big birthday last year. I cut out the Stampin Up Large numbers framelits from glitter card stock and the swirly scribbles thin-let from Bermuda bay card stock.
I added the sentiment from CBS to a piece of white card stock and then added the die cuts onto the base.  The panel is then mounted on smoky slate card stock to finish it off.

Have a great day...

Especially For You

Morning... Very quick card for you today using one of the floral stamps from Clearly Besotted.  I did actually make this card last year but had not been able to share it with you.


I stamped and heat embossed in white the image from the On Your Day set from CBS and then coloured it in using distress oxides.  I then fussy cut it out. I embossed a piece of vellum with the linen plate from Papertrey Ink and mounted that onto a card blank made from Soft Sky Card stock from Stampin Up. Its edges with a piece of white 3mm ribbon and the image added over the top and trimmed where it went over the edge of the blank.
The card is finished off with a sentiment from the Message Me stamp set stamped and white heat embossed on black card stock.

That is all from me for today... I'll be back tomorrow with another card for you

You Passed

Morning.... Hope you all have had a great weekend.  I'm back today with another LOTV card for you and this time its a shaker card.


I have used a fairly new image, Oliver - Driving Test and fussy cut around the image within the frame to give a window.
The image is coloured in with Copic markers and then mounted on some acetate. I used the stripes embossing folder from Stampin Up and real red card stock for the surround. The shaker is filled with little silver stars from Lucys' Little Things.

I added some detail onto the the number plate and then mounted the whole thing onto a white card base.

This card has a little more than what I normally add but its fun making shaker cards once in a while and I loved the idea of him throwing the learner plates in the air!

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday

The Kindness You Show

Hello .... I'm wading through the mass of unused craft stash as I decide what to keep.. I was unsure of this set from this years Sale-A-Bration from Stampin Up but decided to use the flower for this card and add some bright purple from the Amazing You set.



I stamped the image twice and the leaves onto the back panel I die cut using the pierced rectangles from Avery Elle. I then coloured in and fussy cut out the image to add some dimension.  The centre is then filled with black glass glitter.

I added a sentiment from another Stampin Up sentiment and then mounted the panel onto a white card blank.

Hope you have a lovely Wednesday!

Birthday Hugs

Morning.. Here is another card I made last year after I had done my copic 3 class back in September which was colouring Fur.  I completely forgot to post it!


I stamped the squidgy and teddy stamp from Stampin Bella onto neenah card stock and the coloured in with copics and the technique learned at the class for the bear.
I added the sentiment from the same set and then mounted the panel onto a card blank made from Real Red card stock from Stampin Up.

Hope you all have a lovely day...

New Home

Morning... Hope you all had a fabulous weekend... I'm hopefully enjoying the sights of Italy as you read this!

Today I have another CAS LOTV card for you today and its using one of the New Home Trios.  I love digi stamps as you can make the image the size you need for the card.  This one I have made it slightly bigger than what the original rubber trio stamps were.


I coloured in the house image using copic markers and then fussy cut around the circle before mounting it onto  a kraft card stock base.
The sentiment has been added using my tape machine.... I really love this gadget and it reminds me of being a kid again!

That's all from me today.  I hope you all have a lovely Monday.

Sorry I'm Slow

Hey Y'all I have a quick card using a quirky set from Stampin Up.  I had made the distress oxide back ground a while ago whilst messing around and found it in the box of bits.


For the back ground I used Broken China distress oxide by stamping a clear block and then spraying with water and smooching onto the card panel.
I then stamped the Sloth from the Quirky Critters set from Stampin Up and coloured it in with Copics. I re-stamped it onto the background panel so the sentiment was on the background and then fussy cut the one I have coloured it layering it over the top with foam pads.

The card panel is then mounted onto a pistachio pudding card based.  I really do love this background effect. 

That's all from me for today
