Paper Smooches haul

I have been watching Prairie Paper and Ink on You Tube for a while now and have been hunting down a stamp brand she has used a few times. The brand is called Paper Smooches.

Last week sometime I noticed a scrapbook shop that i have been wanting to go to called Alice in Paperland had used some on a card, hubby came home early from work one day last week so he took me down to have a look.

I purchased a couple of new stamp sets

Cutasaurus and the matching dies Dino 1
Chubby Chums and the matching dies Chums
Zoo Crew (there is no dies made for this set)

I was so excited, even though these were not the particular ones I was after, I also picked up a Copic Ciao marker i had run out of.

Elf Holiday Wishes

This card I made a few days ago features an image that was a freebie back in August from while ago from Digi Stamp Boutique. He is no longer available, however there is a few other designs of him which are just as cute. You can find those here.

Now let's get down to the design...

Quite proud of this card, it was all made with leftovers from cards I have previously made :-)

Papers are from Crafters Choice Christmas paper pad from memory, cardstock is from American Crafts and die cuts are from spellbinders dies. Sentiments are from a Stampin up stamp set.

Unfortunately I was so excited about this card that I didn't write down any of the markers I used, but the image is all coloured with Copic Markers purchased from Craft a Lot and Forever Markers.
Anyway, hope you like it :-)


Cricket boy turns 10

Hi :-) It is currently 10.40pm here in Sydney, Australia and yes I should be sleeping, but I am having a lot of trouble with that lately so I thought I would catch up on some blogging.

My son asked me to make a card for his BFF's 10th Birthday. Aidan loves cricket and has just started playing so I thought that would be a great place to start.

A friend pointed me in the direction of this stamp while I had been trying to hunt something down, finding a boy playing cricket is not as easy as I thought that it would be.

This image is from Crafts U Print and the image is called Cricketing Doodles.

Feature Art Outdoor Passions Cricket (Reverse)
American Crafts Cardstock
Brads from stash
Twiddleybitz card base
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Dymo Letra Tag

Image was coloured using Copic Markers purchased from Craft-a-Lot and Forever Markers

Logan turns 5 with Red Foo

Good Afternoon all :-)

My Beautiful little boy turned 5 on Saturday, he is a very big fan of Red Foo from LMFAO, for those of you who know him will understand this card.

It took me 2 weeks to make this card as I was struggling to find an image to use on it. I ended up finding this particular image by accident 2 days before his birthday! I couldn't believe it when I came across it.

I cannot believe how fast the past few years have gone, for us in Australia kids start Kindergarten in Primary school around the age of 5. Most of the children turn 5 before starting but the cut off is 5 in July, so as long as they are 5 before that date.

Anyway, this is a big thing for kids and my son is so so excited about starting in January next year, he is also excited about going to big school with his big brother, who will be in year 5 next year when he starts.

Well I guess I had better get onto my card lol. I found this image on a craft site called Crafts U Print and the image is called Night Fever Doodles.

What I used for this card

Uniball Signo White Gel Pen
Papers are from Feature Art FAJ 165
Francheville Kraft Cardstock
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye
Dymo Letratag

Image was coloured using Copic Markers purchased from Craft a Lot and Forever Markers

Shakin' in my boots

I coloured this image a few weeks ago with my copic markers (purchased from Craft-a-Lot and Forever Markers) but haven't yet had a chance to put it onto a card, between 2 children who feel the need to continually argue with each other!! aah boys!

Anyway, here it is lol.

Most of this has been made with bits and pieces from my stash so I can't give you a list of what has been used, I know there is some Kaisercraft Cardstock and the shapes have been cut with Spellbinders Labels three dies, and the card base is from Twiddleybitz

This stamp is part of a set of stamps from Whimsy Stamps called Accessories Halloween 1, you can find it here.

Hope you like my card
