Nautical Poppy

Well I had all good intentions to use my fab Breast Cancer Awareness stamps and die cut this morning but just could not get an image to create this…typical as all week I had some good images in mind, I must start to jot these down !

Anyway, as my mum’s birthday is looming as she loves Poppies, I decided to give this set another go. Have to admit I am pleased with the outcome and am sure she will love it.

I then came up with a Nautical theme, I have no idea why but came up with this design.

Hope you like 🙂

Poppy Disappointment

As it is my mum’s birthday soon and her favourite flower is Poppies… I was pleased to find a stamp set & die set for a good price.

Well today I had a rare day off and thought I would give them a go… how disappointed I am with this set. Firstly the stamps are not individual stamps, nor would then attach to a stamp block or my WRMK…. so I had to work blind with them.

First attempt was stamp image and place paper on top then use die cut and second attempt was to use distress ink on to paper, place die on top and then stamp outline in black and place paper on top….must be an easier way to use these stamps surely ? Of course there is … means I have to cut them out and add foam or stix 2 on top *sighs*

I honestly thought given they are Sheena Douglass I would be impressed but alas I am not.

Roar !

Well next Sunday is my gorgeous godson 2nd Birthday, where has my little man gone ?

As he is dinosaur mad I really hope he likes his card. I was lucky enough to find this die set on Ebay ( don’t you just love Ebay ? I do ! )

Next weekend I will be busy making dinosaur cupcake toppers and cupcake wrappers, so if all goes well I will post my efforts, I say efforts as never done these before so wish me luck !

And relax ….

After a very manic week I am slowly getting all my happy mail ( well apart from a seller in China that sent me 4 embossing folders instead of 8 ! but am on the case with that ) and a lovely rare day off, I decided to play around with new dies, folders and stamps.

I have been after a Ribbon Awareness stamp for what seems ages and finally got a stamp set, although ribbon not as big as I would like, I must not complain.

These are nowhere finished to my satisfaction but as I said am only playing around.

A Little Note ….

I have a Wish Jar to make for a Christening soon and coming up for a design was baffling me as really did not want the traditional “baby” stamps or dies on the tags. After looking through Google it then hit me … Scribbled Flowers !

This was my first mock attempt and although I am pleased with them I do however have 50 …yes 50 tags to make ! I will be so happy when my WRMK Precision Press arrives as be able  to make 50 tags all with same design.

Raspberry Rudolph

I had an unexpected day off today which gave me a chance to try out the new dies I got yesterday.

The Penguin was so fiddly I almost threw it in the bin but maybe one weekend I will give it another go…

Now the Reindeer I love ! And I have to say I think I have found my new favourite Christmas colour of Raspberry.

As I did not have brownish colour card, I used my distress ink to get the colour I was happy with and same the for the lights.

What do you think ?

Baby Boy

Just realised I have a friend who is due to have a boy soon and she loves home / hand made stuff, so out came the crafting gear again.

I am pleased with this final card. I know I am not great compared to ALOT of crafters out there but I will get better or so I hope.

I will admit I was going to admit defeat with this as my corner punch was a nightmare and I ended up making loads of squares when I only needed 8 but I got there in the end ( maybe giving it a whack helped I don’t know ).

Here is the finished result.
