You make me...HAPPY!!

Hi everyone....

I have made a new card using an awesome new die 
'Scalloped box card pop up' from Lawn Fawn and a super fun stamp set 
called 'Gardening Phoebe' from Your next stamp!!

I coloured all my images in using Copics and added some 
little details with a white gel pen....

The background was done using Distress Oxide Inks
'Broken China' and 'Worn lipstick' on watercolour paper and then sprayed with the 
Ranger spray bottle to add the splotchy effect!!

This card all folds down flat so you can still put it in an envelope to post.... 
What a surprise for the person who opens it up!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy crafting everyone!!

Hey everyone....

There is a new sketch over on the "Your Next Stamp" blog 
so I thought id give it a go and see what I could come up with!!

I love following sketches...

I used the stamp set "Spec-tacular Phoebe and friends"....
such a fun set to play around with!! 

I coloured up the little teddy and glasses using 
Zig clean colour real brush pens...

The background is created using a variety of 
Distress ink colours with a Kaisercraft stencil!!

I added a touch of bling with some "Pretty Pink Posh
sequins just to finish it all off..

Hey everyone...

I am here to share with you a new MFT card I made
 using one of their card kits "Fancy florals"...

I heat embossed the flower images in white embossing powder,
then got out a range of Distress ink colours and inked over the top of them...

The distress ink area I sprayed with a spritzer and then dabbed off the water with some paper towel to create the droplet effect...

The sentiment "FRIEND" is covered in clear wink of stella so IRL it is very sparkly!!

There we have a very simple CAS card!!
