LiM 107

Hi fellow bloggers - hope you have had a lovely weekend. I thought I would get some crafting done but only managed a LiM entry - where does the time go?

The theme this week is "Up in the air" and is to feature something that flies. I tried using a kite die but it just wouldn't work for me so had bought these stamps from creative expressions for my son's scrapbook and thought the balloon would work. I kiss stamped two in Stazon straight on the card and then stamped the third on coloured card. The sentiment is from a different set. The sentiment and the coloured balloon are raised and the card is edge tinted with  dove grey stazon.
As I have to scan entries at the mo due to computer not liking my camera it does look a bit flat.
I have used: -
  • Creative Expressions stamps - Vintage travel set
  • Stazon Stone Grey and Dove Grey
  • Orphan sentiment stamp

LiM - One layer

Good morning fellow bloggers - crafting time a bit short lately as my job has changed drastically and trying to catch up with it! - although cheated a bit last week by scheduling 3 posts so it looked as though I had made something each of the days Lol! Anyway finally got round to the latest LiM challenge.
The theme this week is one layer and music. I had recently bought these stamps from Joanna Sheen for a scrapbooking project for a friend and thought they would fit the bill.

I have used: -
  • craftworks card base
  • 2 of the Joanna Sheen "Groovy baby" stamps
  • orphan sentiment stamp
  • crimson brilliance inkpad
  • black archival inkpad
  • brown watercolour pencil
  • crafters companion spray and sparkle silver

catching up with birthdays

Hi fellow bloggers - I am trying not to be late with birthday cards this year and have made a male card for a cousin using some of my paper stash! - this is my resolution for 2013 [again] but am really going to try and stick to it.
I have used craft card for the base and added a spellbinders scalloped label under the pocket and also matted the tag onto card for strength. no's on the tag were cut using Sizzix bubble alpha set and I used plain twine on the card and the tag..

LiM - 2nd birthday

Hi fellow bloggers - am back with a LiM entry to celebrate their 2nd birthday. As I am a bit out of practice have kept it as CAS as I can!. The theme this week is coffee and Crema so I have used a Kraft Card,cream bazill,  and off white wax paper to add dimension and movement to the butterfly. The butterfly was cut using a spellbinders die and the hearts are waste from another die cut tinged with a mocha ink pad.

Back in blogland! with Sizzix

Hi fellow bloggers - it is good to be back and I will visit you this week - so sorry for long absence.
I won a set of Sizzix framelit dies from Loredana Bucaria - one of their European bloggers - I had forgotten about this and so it was a fab surprise when it popped through the door. I used them to try out for these flowers I have made for a scrapbook page with bazill cardstock and embossed the flowers with an embossing folder also from Sizzix from my stash.
