Celtic Angel ATC

I coloured in this really cool Celtic Angel digital stamp from Crafts and Me a while ago now and have not had chance to use it. The challenge this week in a group I belong to on Facebook was MYSTICAL IRELAND. Any thing from lepricorns and banshees Celtic knots faerie folk etc. So here is my take on it:

Free to Dream ATC

My first Skinny Card

I had never heard of these before I joined Swap Bot, they are quite fun to do as they give you a little bit more room than an ATC as they are 3″ x 5″

I made mine using the new Memory Box Die I bought recently and some Echo Park paper I had left over from another project.

Toilet Paper roll mini album

I have been in a swap recently over at Mini Album Scraps that involved making a mini album using the cardboard tubes from the middle of a toilet paper roll. I had great fun making one of these as my partner Matilda’s favourite colours are pink, black and white. These are not colours that I normally work with on albums as I have 2 boys.

Here is Matilda’s video of the Album that I sent to her:

Yesterday I received a package from Matilda with this awesome album in it:

Isn’t it wonderful, I need to find some pictures to put in it now.

A Seahorse Shaker ATC

Seahorse ATC

This week over at ATCs and Cards with Attitude I have created a card using the Seahorses image from our sponsor Delicious Doodles. I coloured the image with copics and then used an embossing pen on the coral and the seahorses eyes in order to emboss them with different embossing powders. I cut out the circle frame using Nesties and glued some acetate behind it. I then used pinflair glue to create the gap needed for the Beadazzles to shake around inside.

Coloured Owl Series ATCs

Purple Owl Artist Trading Card

Here we have an ATC for the Coloured Owl Series – Purple over at Swap Bot, the owls were a free digital image from the Lost in Paper Scraps blog which I tangled and coloured. The background was sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer mist (always seem to end up covered in this when I use it!)

Wacky Wheelz Ford Anglia

Ford Anglia Wacky Wheelz card

As soon as I saw this image on my Next Big Thing CD I knew I just had to use it on my Dad’s birthday card. We had many different cars over the years and one of them was a blue Ford Anglia, not quite like this one I must admit, but fun all the same.

I coloured the image using my Copic Ciao pens and used my Spellbinders Parisian dies for the shapes on the card.

Travel Themed ATC

Travel ATC

I joined an ATC swap group on Facebook called ATC Swap UK and the theme for this month is Travel so here is one of the cards I have made:

Travel ATC

I used a mask in the background and some images I found on the web along with a quickutz die kindly lent to me by my pal Ger over at Cullen Crafts.


Mothers day card

I am hoping that my Mum can’t remember my blog, (if that’s not the case then Mum this is your card lol) I was so pleased with the way this turned out, I have wanted to try this technique out for ages and Sue Wilson has great step by step instructions on her blog

Mothers Day Card 2012

Here is a close up of the embossed card. I used the Spellbinders Parisien die sets to create the embellishments. The image is a digital image from Just Inklined simply called Rose coloured with Copic Ciao pens.

Another series of artist trading cards over at Swap Bot is one of flowers, this is a card I have just sent off:

Flower Series Poppies

The poppies were coloured with copic ciao and then cut out and decoupaged. The paper came from a free paper pack I got with a magazine.
