IMG_2019IMG_2020 I was sitting in the craft room doing some die cutting, but the heat was too much..it’s 10:30 am here and already 32C and more than a little bit humid, so I have moved to a cooler part of the house.Todays cards continue our series of Uniquely creative paper collection, matching Creative cuts, and assorted pretty bling . The owls on the top card have little clear resin domes over their eyes, and i have inked all my edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. There is also a chipboard feather on the top card which I painted with Nuvo platinum mousse. i am now revising my crafty plans for today, I think I will stamp out some images, dig out my copics and sit under the air con vent! Til next time….

Madame Boutique 2

I have a village lesson to teach tonight, so I actually wasn’t going to post today, but I want to share something with you all . Today when I was shopping at my local shop I found out that yesterday 8 people had their handbags snatched out of their trolleys in the local supermarket. It’s that time of year when people get very brazen in order to fund their xmas shopping, so to you all, my friends, when you are shopping have a good tight grip on your handbags or even better, just have your money, cards and keys in a secure pocket.Now on to todays post. The paper and collectables are from kaisercraft Madame Boutique, the cardstock is Stampin Up Baja Breeze, the flower was created with a sizzix die – flower layers #9 and I used tissue paper and an old dress pattern and added a couple of feathers. The lace is a stamp from Kaisercraft called lace, next time I use it I won’t use such a dark ink pad, a bit more subtle would have been the way to go! Tomorrow you will see how I turned Madame Boutique into a mens card… Til tomorrow…..

My favourite stamp and paper (for today!)

I have skipped aheadĀ  a bit in my photo files to show this card – we took some photos of my recent makes, and this was one and I couldn’t resist posting it, because it is my favourite for just now. The paper is My Minds Eye Lost and Found Rosy ( absolutlely gorgeous colours) and the bird stamp is Young Vermillion by Stampin Up . I coloured the bird by daubing brown , orange, and yellow ink onto cream cardstock, then stamping in dark brown, and cutting out the image. I added a little red onto his chest after cutting. On the card I added Prima leaves, assorted flowers and a feather.The greeting is Stampin Up Perfectly penned, also a favourite and you will probably see it more than once on my blog! Today I am playing with the new kaiser paper releases for december – also beautiful – and enjoying myself immensely! Til tomorrow…..
