Summery Tilda

With the lovely weather we're having at the moment I decided to make a summery coloured card and used this cute Tilda image on it, coloured with Copics, the background stamp is a WOJ one. The papers are from a Brenda Pinnick scrapbook kit. I've just got some new coated card to use with my Copics and am just about to try it out for the first time, hopefully it will make blending the colours easier- or so I've heard! I'm loving using my Copics and will have to invest in some more pretty soon!

Gold and Ivory

That was the brief for this birthday card commissioned by my friend Ben for a pal of his. I hope he likes it!

The stamp is called New York Socialite and is by Stamps Happen, its been coloured with Copics and I've added a little glitter to her bling. The flowers are Prima and Papermania, the rest of the card is made out of stuff from my stash, which has had a bit of a makeover! I've had to make room in my craft room that was overflowing so have sorted a load of stuff to give to my boyfriends sister who is also into card making. Hmmm maybe that means I can buy more stuff now....

Thanks A Bunch

I've made a small thank you card from circle nesties, using a Penny Black image received in an image swap ages ago coloured with Copics. The papers are from a Brenda Pinnick scrapbook kit and the flowers are Primas, I think the sentiment is by Whiff Of Joy but I'm not 100% on that.

Thank you Emma and Jo for your help on my earlier problem, it just stopped it its self after about half hour of doing it so I still don't know what it was.

I'm off to Ascot Races on Friday for the day so keep your fingers crossed the weather stays good for me, I'm wearing a purple dress so hope I didn't look too much like Barney the Dinosaur or a Ribena Berry, I'll post some pics if I get any good ones!


Im having major issues with this web page, it keeps opening over and over again, is anyone else having this problem after being on here? it says #rpctoken=-588714218338933043 after my blog address. I assume its a virus but my scanner comes up with nothing. Can anyone help?

Raining Birthday Wishes

Another card made with a Paper Makeup stamp, This time she's called Emma and has been coloured with Copics. The papers are Laundry Line, Papermania ribbon, DCWV coloured card, flowers are from X-Cut punches, the swirls from a Sizzix die. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.

Thanks for dropping by my blog and looking at my cards, I've got lots of dreaded housework to do and a lot of studying for my next course but hope to get time for some blog hopping today as well to see all those fab creations out there!

I finally got a chance to make do some crafting and made 4 cards!! I'm uploading them one at a time though just to keep you in suspense.
I used my new stamps from Paper Makeup, this one is called Kirsten, I coloured it with my Copics. The sentiment is also from Paper Makeup Stamps, I had to get it when I read it as it is so sweet and inspirational. The papers are Laundry Line, flowers are Prima and brads are Papermania.
For as long as the cricket is on I get to spend the evenings in my craft room while my other half watches it, so I plan on making some more cards before I have to go back on another residential course for 8 weeks in July and August.
