Streets of London...

Good afternoon fellow crafters...
I have a new card to share using heaps of the little london collection stamps...
I masked them all together and coloured them using distress inks to create a little street scene...
Aren't they all super cute!!!

Stamps I used are 
- Telephone booth
- Afternoon tea Tilda
- Edwin with derby hat 
- Cute magnolia
- Afternoon tea bench
- Afternoon tea plant

Now onto my card.... 

I added in lots of embellishments around the image...flowers, buttons, butterfly and more!!

There is lots of different lace and ribbons on this one from my shop Ashcraft & gifts... 
(You can find my store on Facebook)

Pretty flowers from wild orchid that I made look shabby by adding some white paint...

A pocket with a tag inside... 
Oh isn't Edwin here looking so dapper with his hat and suit!!!!

Well that's all from me for today....

Magnolia "for u"...

Hey everyone, 
I made another paper bag card today using an image I had already coloured up last week ready to go..
I masked some stamps from a few different collections
Bon voyage - Bon voyage Tilda
So heavenly - travel luggage
Love - love heart 

All coloured using distress ink markers and re-inkers.. here it is!!!

I made a little banner using the flag from doohickey die set flag and cloud, threaded through some twine and then added on the words "for u "...

The flower I made using a die from memory box, inked the edges with frayed burlap and layered it all together with a nice little brad in the middle...
Large clock in the background is a die from Tim holtz dies!!

I also used a new die from couture creations...(the frame under my image) its so nice and lacey!!
The pretty lace I sourced today from a little craft store I found near my home...

I added in some stitching using my sewing machine...Love the stitching on cards !!

On the inside I used a mask to add in a vinatge clock with frayed burlap distress ink..

The designer paper is from kaisercraft...
The paper bag I got from my local spotlight, it did have handles so I just removed those!!

So what do you think of my latest creation..?? I hope you all like it...
thankyou for visiting me..

Black/white and one colour..

Hey everyone, 
The challenge at Inky chicks is to use black/white and a colour...
This was something different for me and I was really quite pleased with the outcome!!!

Here is my card...

I coloured the image using distress ink markers and re-inkers on Langton hot press smooth paper.
The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts...
I also made the little hat pin poking out ot the flowers!!

There is lots of sparkle sprinkled all around the outside edge of the card...as the sentiment says 
'fairy dust is a must"!!

See my hat pin...these are fun to make, and look so pretty!!
There is so many nice beads and pearls available to make these with.
(I got mine from my local spotlight)

This Tilda stamp is so cute...
I had her on my wish list for awhile so I recently purchased her!!
She is called - Fairy tale Tilda from Fairy tale collection.

Here is a close up of my coloured image!

Well thank you for stopping by my blog,...
I hope you can join us girls in the challenge and don't forget to pop on over to the challenge blog

To the moon and back....!!

Hey everyone, 
Hope you are all well and having lots of fun crafty time...
had an order for a valentine card for a male to make today, so I headed into my craft room and grabbed two stamps from the Winner takes all collection 
-Super Edwin
( I find it harder to make cards for men because I always want to add pretty girly things lol!! )

Yulis had recently made a card using a sky background technique so I thought I would try it out...
you can pop over to yulis's blog here - http://yuliswithmagnolia.blogspot.com.au she always has lots of beautiful work to share!!

Here is my go at the sky technique!!
The distress inks I used were -weathered woon and -stormy sky

I sprayed the background with maya pearl mist, lindys stamp gang sprays and a goosebump spray..
The moon is covered in glossy accents, then to add texture I heat dryed it so it bubbled.


The text stamp is from Kaiser craft..I thought it suited this card and these winner takes all collection stamps well!!


I added in some cheesecloth, string pearls, glitter and lace...thought I'd better not add flowers to this one lol...although I was tempted!!

Let me know what you think of my male card...??
Also it was my first go using the Langton hot press smooth paper to colour my image on (after it finally turned up...)
