PAISLEY HAS A PREZZIE

Good morning today I am sharing a card with you using a Stamping bella uptown girl called "Paisley has a Prezzie" and some scraps of paper....




I added some peach coloured card and used up some scraps of paper, I added a little twine and some dots, I stamped my image and coloured her with copics I added a little glitter and then cut her out, I added some 3d pads to make her pop up a little and I tucked in the sentiment, I just love these sweethearts have you seen the new release drooling, yesterday I decided I would have a messy play to...




This is my first proper play, I need something else to do, I love making cards but it can get a bit I don't want to say boring, but I want to expand my creativity, so I had a play, I am not brave enough to write my own words or draw my own bits just yet, and I cannot afford all the paints etc so I just used my Inktense pencils for the background and some white ink, and I coloured the image Tiddly Inks "Wryn Mom and Me" with copics and then added some inktense colours to them, I so need to get better and get to a class, but despite getting super messy I had so much fun :0) I am hoping with time I improve and maybe try with paints and other stuff but for now I am keeping it simple, thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

Busy, busy and busy

Good morning I have to say sorry for not visiting you yesterday but my honey got me this old paper unit and I spent the day cleaning it up, it was full of paint and blu tack and what looked like chewing gum and then I had to find somewhere for it to fit, which resulted in me dragging everything out to fit it in the back of my cupboard boy what a huge job it ended up being and while it was all out I sorted through it all and made sure everything had a place, so I am happy now as I know where everything is, and most importantly my paper and card is all in one place as you know the sheet or colour you are after is always the last one no more moving piles for me,  it came up a right treat once it had been cleaned and oiled, he did good :0)





Today I am sharing a cas card featuring an old Elisabeth Bell stamp but for the life of me I cannot think of her name, total memory block, scary when that happens, Teej was home on Friday yet I stood outside for half an hour waiting for his taxi worrying he was so late when he was in fact in his bedroom studying...




I have been playing with my "Distress ink pads" for this one, I am not sure on colour combos yet so just trying them out really, her hair is a bit to bright for me but I am sure it will come, I added some scraps of paper to the bottom and used my "Paper chomper" for the bottom corners, I added a sentiment I found while sorting and 2 little pearls, I cut my image out and added some 3d pads to make her stand out a little and then added a bit of glitter :0) Thank you for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x

I made my own sentiment on my laptop, I have been asked about this, I actualy learned by following my gorgeous blogging pal Kerry's tutorial which can be found "Here" I have used a "Heart Lattice" embossing folder and used the negative on the base, then the positive on the top, I added "Canadian Border" I used some 3d foam pads to make the middle part stand up more, I die cut my sentiment using "Opulent Ovals" which I also added 3d foam pads to to give a little more height, I then added some flowers using "Perfect Peony's" and then I added some "Clear Gems" to add a touch of bling, and a Butterfly thank you so much for looking today biggest of hugs love Pops x x x
