Introducing Bamboo!!

Good evening all, I am here today with a sneak peek of a new range from Crafter's Companion called Party Paws. It is FANTASTIC!! Bamboo is adorable and he has certainly captured mine and I'm sure, many of the design teams hearts with his cuteness!!

Today's card is using one of the stamps.

I used my spectrum noirs to colour him in the colours I used are.
Ears & paws- BG7, BG9, BG10
Face- BG1, blender (PP1 cheeks)
Heart- DR4, DR6, DR7

The embossed card is core'diantions and the strip across the card is a backing paper from the CD rom which is also available.

Angelica and friends meets Darice

Good morning, I hope you are well!?! It's Friday hoorah and I have the weekend off double hoorah!! I am very excited about this as it means I actually get to see my eldest play in his football 1/4 final cup game...YAY!! :0)

Today I am going to share a card using one of the gorgeous Angelica stamps and also one of the new Darice embossing folders.

The stamp is the very pretty Isobel, she is definitely one of my faves!! When I received the Chandelier embossing folder I thought of this image straight away :0) Again another simple card from me but I'm happy with the result. I embossed onto Centura card stock which always gives a fantastic finish. The image I stamped onto Neenah card and coloured in with my Spectrum noir pens. After colouring in the image I added some glitter to the bodice and petticoat of the dress. Here is a close up...

A little more Angelica

Good evening all if this works this will be my third attempt of writing a blog post as my blogger app on my phone doesn't seem to be working....I'm really not having much technical luck at the mo! :0(.

Firstly I would like to say a big welcome to my new followers and a big thank you for all you lovely comments I have really enjoyed reading them all. I didn't get round to posting yesterday as I had a poorly boy at home who needed lots of hugs and attention but I'm back now (hopefully) and have a card to share :0)

I made this cards using one of the Card Companions and as you can see you don't have to keep it as a square card.  I printed and embossed one of my favourite papers and added to a 6" X 7" card base (I love this size at the moment) along with the card companion it makes a nice quick, easy and simple card.
To finish off the card I also added one of the sentiments.

So have you ordered yours yet? If you're a member of Club Inspire Crafter's Comapnion are doing a fab offer!

Thank you so much for stopping by please feel free to leave a comment.

I have wanted to make one of these for a while. I made my own template and used some of the beautiful papers from the cd rom. The letters are also from the alphabet section from the cd rm which you can resize so you can make what ever size banner you like :0) Here are a few more pics of the letters themselves...

The images are some of the rubber stamps which I LOVE and I coloured them in with my spectrum noirs and then added a little glamour dust for sparkle. I also used my die'sire quilling dies and butterfly die to embellish.

I loved making this and I'm already thinking of making one for my nieces :0)
Here is a card I also made...

Again the image was coloured with my spectrum noirs being a little brave with the blue as I don't usually use the bolder colours. I used the enchanted spring Die'sire die (my fave!!) and again one of he gorgeous backing papers. Here is a close up

So that's all from me today you now need to hop onto Kendra's blog
