Tiny get well note

I made this cute little get well note, not because I needed it but because I had scribbled some promarkers onto the paper and I thought it would look good with a sentiment stamped on it so tried out a new concord and 9th set and this is the sentiment I plumped for.

Now before you remind me that my plan for this year was no spend and then I mention new stamps this was a little haul I bought between Christmas and new year … so hence new… so although they didn’t arrive until 2023 (postal issues) they were paid for in 2022!

Anyway back to the card … I’d done the scribbling during the photo shoot (see the last two posts for more info!) and so not letting things go to waste I decided to use this little piece as the focal point on a simple card.

I did add some splatters too using my black wink of Stella pen too so it’s got a little sparkle as well.

The card is only 3 x4.5 in size so a really cute little one.

Not often I go so small or so clean and simple but this little scribble with promarkers did the job perfectly for me!

Happy crafting!

Spray background play

So I blogged yesterday that my daughter had been doing a photo shoot with some of my craft supplies … and whilst playing in the light box she made for the photo shoot she decided to have some sprayed backgrounds to her subject matter. Well I couldn’t let lovely backgrounds go to waste so had a quick play cutting one up and used it on a cute little slimline card.

I used some Concord and 9th stamps to add the butterflies and the sentiment.

I mounted the panel onto black and then used some of the lovely black and white checked ribbon and some black gems to embellish.

I decided to then add to the zingy yellow card stock from the stash which I made into a slimline card base.

Pretty and good use of some paper leftover from the photo shoot. I’ve got a few more pieces so cut them into backgrounds to use at some point in the future!

Happy crafting!

Busy weekend quick crafting

So this weekend has been busy with cleaning the house, decluttering and basically being on the go most of the time. Plus the hubby stole my work desk and chair so I couldn’t really craft as the chair is also my crafting chair!

One of the tasks of the weekend was also my daughter doing a photo shoot for her photography a level and so I was the glamorous lighting assistant pointing iPhone torch lights at the phones she was photographing. And her subject matter for the shoot happened to be my crafting supplies!

As you can probably see some painty splotches were made on the bits of card etc which of course I didn’t want to waste so have a few of them now stored away for future projects. But as soon as the hubby vacated the chair I quickly made this card using one of the splotchy backgrounds, some washi tape, stamping and the paper flowers we unearthed as part of the photo shoot!

I also dug out some old embellishment tins and found a little sparkly one for the centre of the flower. I decided to also add some die cut leaves to finish off the flower as it looked odd without them.

Happy crafting!

DT: Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge

Hi there! Thanks for popping along to my little corner of the Web. I’ve got another Happy Little Stampers design team contribution to share with you today. This was for the Anything Goes with Dies blog.

This card turned into a labour of love … lots of stamping, masking and colouring with just a bit of die cutting!

I made this for my cousins daughters birthday as the girl images reminded me of her.

I cut a piece of 6×6 white and stamped the Polaroid image from Concord and 9th all over it, and then masking I filled in some of the gaps. Next I took the girl images which were magazine stamps and stamped those as the photo images… again lots of masking to keep the images within the frames.

I then coloured them using both Stampin Blends and promarkers until the whole sheet was coloured in. I also edged the panel with black.

Next I stamped and die cut the camera image and then coloured that in. I also die cut some hearts and coloured them using the same colours so they would coordinate.

I decided to then put a few things together to make the sentiment. Firstly the smile die from Lawn Fawn which I stacked a few together to give it dimension and then some little alphas. Then Your from Happy Celebrations and Birthday from Biggest Wish.

I added some foam behind a few elements and behind the main die cut panel I added some ribbon.

I then went to town with wink of Stella on the hearts and the smile die cut.

Inside the card I added three individual Polaroid images I had cut out and coloured and some more of the hearts.

For the envelope I kept it simple and just added the stamped hearts in similar colours.

Love how this turned out.

Happy crafting!

Turnabout sunshine

I love the Turnabout stamps from Concord & 9th. They are super clever but also super easy to use. I own two of them and for this card made use of both of them.

I used the confetti and the Radiate ones to create the background. It was perhaps a little busy by the end but still I think it’s fab.

Then I added the sunshine and the circle of glitter embossed card to the centre and added it to the red card. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment and die cut that using a banner die from the Petals and More die set.

I decided to finish the sun off with the wink of Stella and glossy accents to add dimension and shine.

Love the look of this as the finishing touch.

Happy crafting!
