Morning LIMettes... I'm still on holiday for a few more days but this weeks challenge over at Less Is More is Emboss Resist!

For this card I used Hero Arts stamp embossed in white and then bright blue brusho for the background.

Botanical Sympathy Duo


I have been working on filling up gaps in the card box and I never seem to have any sympathy cards so I thought I would make some using the gorgeous Botanical Builder Dies from Stampin Up.

And the second one...


I need to check all my dive gear ready for my holiday and then I'm off to Thomas Rhett gig tonight... It's going to be another busy day.

Enjoy your Sunday

It's Elementary Dear Watson

Morning LIMettes,

We have a new challenge over at Less Is More today and it's One Layer Card week.  The theme is
Books or Literature
I have gone for a favourite, Sherlock Holmes and use this fabulous stamp which was just perfect!

The stamp actually has a sentiment across the top, so I masked this off with a post-it note and then stamped it using the MISTI tool. It's lightly coloured in with Copics and finished off with some glossy accents.


Hope you have a great Saturday, can't wait to see what you come up with and don't forget to vsit the rest of the DT.

Thinking of 'You'

Morning all... I have a super cute little guy for you today in the form of this cute frog (can you see a pattern emerging here).  I happen to love both green and frogs and making this card last night was purely co-incidental to yesterdays post :-)

I though I would try colouring tone on tone for this card, something I'm not sure I have done before but I seem to have found my mojo and be back into the swing of it and trying new things.


Busy day at work for me but I'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration for the Lili Of The Valley Facebook Challenge

Have a great Thursday

New Pad

Morning.... quite a few of my friends have either moved or purchased their first home this year...  I have this Penny Black stamp from many years ago and love it for a funky 'New Pad' card. These frogs are just so much fun!

I decided to colour them up on Neenah Desert Storm card stock.. I love how the greens come up so well.  A quick sentiment and some washi and it's all done.


Stamp: Penny Black - Green Friends

I'm hoping to get ahead with crafting over the next few days before I go diving... Now I have moved the Craft Studio I am a lot more comfortable working in there... really does show how much the space drives your mojo sometimes.

Have a great Wednesday

You're A Star

Morning.... I'm back again today with a Craft Stash DT card using some stunning red glimmer paper for a movie star worthy card....

The backdrop of stars sits perfectly behind the bold sentiment, I really am happy how this card turned out.


It's a busy week at the moment and I am still trying to fit in the gym and sorting out the craft room .. there are boxes everywhere at the moment and I just keep moving them around from one place to the other as I craft.

I'm still falling over the stash I have for sale so if you would like to check out what I have for sale, please click on the below and it will take you to the For Sale page!!!

Have a great day

Dashing Through The Snow...

Morning... Lazy crafting day yesterday meant that I managed to get ahead on my DT cards and make this cutie for the CAS(e) This Sketch challenge....

I really wanted to show you how you can use LOTV stamps to make a one of those popular scene cards.  This image is retired but it was perfect for the sketch.

I started by stamping the image onto Neenah White card stock and then again onto masking paper and cutting out the top section around the polar bear and penguin. I covered up the stamped image and bottom section and using a blending tool with Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood distress inks, I carefully blended away from the image to the top of the card piece.  Once this was done I then coloured in the image with Copics.

The sentiment was straightened using the MISTI (it's perfect for this) and then stamped on the panel, then the card is finished off with white gel pen and a little stickles.


CAS(e) This Sketch # 197

I also said I would show you my goodies from Saturday at the NEC... Here is a snapshot of my haul... I cannot believe I never had any chalk inks before!

Have a great Monday, I'll be back soon
