Something That Made You Smile

Good Morning Crafty Friends, 

It is my turn again today to share with you some inspiration using some of the stamps from Bee Crafty. 

The sentiment that I have picked today has to be one of my favourites. 

The sentiment is from the Wordage Range and is called Never Regret 

I created a 6x6 card blank using a white hammered card stock, the next layer is a blue card stock, matted again with another white card stock that has been embossed using the Inkables Chain Link Fencing Mask. 
I used a matting die to create the "toppper" on the white card stock I stamped the sentiment and used a detailed silver embossing powder using my heat gun to "set" it. 

Next I added three butterflies, and liquid pearls to the center of each butterfly and in the join of the chainlinks on the background.

That is it for me for today. 

Thanks for stopping in.

Spooky Scrapbooking

Good Morning Crafty People;

Today I thought I would share with you a Halloween Scrapbook Layout. I tried to take pictures at each step so bare with me.  All of the stamps I used were from the new All Hallows Range

Step 1
I selected a plain black background and cut it down to 8 X 8 inches

 Step 2.
I used a white card stock and randomly stamped the spider using a black momento ink pad, once I was happy I cut it down to 7.75 x 7.75 inches.

Step 3 and Step 4
I picked an orange background I didn't want it so bright but this was all I had so I had to come up with an idea. I cut this down to 7.25 x 7.25 inches
So I Decided to take the Fern stamp and the black ink pad and randomly stamp the fern around the edges of the card stock I then used the Black Soot distress ink pad and some cut and dry foam to ink the edges, some of the ink got on my finger and left random dots but I didn't try and correct these as I thought it gave a bit more of a "spooky distress" look to it.

I used my explore to cut the border out, I cut it to the size of the card and left it to size. I added white pen around the "tombs" to give it some detail

Step 5. 
Next I created my photo mat layer. 
I used the black card and cut it 6.73 x 4.73 inches
I used a white card stock and stamped the "Poison" stamp I used a dark purple and then edged it with an orange ink I then cut this to 6.5 x 4.5  inches
Once my photo has been taken I will print this at 6 x4 inches

Step 6
I stamped my title and cut it down so it was nearly the correct size, I added orange ink around the edges on this

I then gathered up all my elements to check that they all worked together and that I was happy with it.
I adhered all these together

All being well this is what you should come out with, I added the title using foam tape, but only removed one piece leaving the bottom open so I can added my photo then remove the backing and fully stick it down.

To give it some final detail I added stitching around the "Spider" background and some additional detail to the "tombs"

I hope you have enjoyed this and I would love to see some of your Halloween Scrapbook Layouts.

Delightful Judith

Good Morning Everyone, 

Monday already so that means it is time for me to share with you another project. 

This time I have gone for a girly card to share with you and have used one of the brilliant 

FASHIONettes, stamps this time I picked JUDITH to use.

 This time I did a DL card the base is lilac and I am sure it come from a card blank pack I purchased many years ago. 

The next layer is a white layer that I created a background with, I used the Fern stamp from the BEAUtanicals range  I used a distress ink to stamp the fern with I picked Victorian Velvet for this. 

The next layer is a purple matt layer, and the layer on top started with a white card stock, I coloured it in using a distress ink pad, this time I used Worn Lipstick and then inked lightly with the Victorian Velvet. To give it some detail I used the Honeycomb Inkables mask and a fine line black pen and traced the individual honeycombs, to create a different background. 

Next I stamped Judith on to 300gsm card stock and coloured her with a combination of promarkers. I used a rose chalk inkpad for her cheeks, she was a delight to stamp and colour. 

To finish the card I added foam to some of the layers, some ribbon and a knot bow, card candi and a sentiment from the Wordage range "Hugs and Kisses"

That is it for me for today.

Anniversary Blues

Afternoon Crafty Friends, 

Today I have for you an anniversary card that I have made. 

I made this style card previously with black and white card and then bright coloured hearts.

I got requested to make it again, but using navy blue and white.


 I added little butterflies to the hearts and lots of embossing, with liquid pearls in the centre dots of the embossing. 

I finished it with a "Happy Anniversary" sentiment 

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes  #78

Scary Spider

Good Morning Everyone

Well today I am sharing a card for you that I really don't like simply because it has a great big SPIDER on the front and I have a huge fear of spiders - but when I stamped it out I took great pleasure in pushing it down hard onto the card stock ha ha ha

So I started with a light blue back ground which I inked with a dark blue distress ink 

I matted a white layer and inked it with black soot and wasn't overally careful about it as I wanted it to be all spooky

The next layer started with a white card blank, which I stamped the spider on to (shudders) I used a black ink pad for this, I then used the same dark blue distress ink and inked all around the creating darker on the edges and lighter towards the spider. 

I used a fern stamp and stamped it into the corners I stamped them three times in each corner.

To finish I added the "danger poison" stamp to the corner.

Well I hope you like him and I apologise if anyone is super scared now from the spider 

See you next week
