Little Devil

This little guy is from Bugaboo's Skelekinz line. I created the spotty background he is on using a homemade stamp (a circle of foam stuck on the end of a pencil, I can't remember where the idea came from, but it works great). I kept the background of the card simple, just using the birthday stamp from the Worth Repeating set to add a sentiment.

I had fun playing with colours for this card, so I had to use one of my favourite sentiments to finish it off.

Christmas already?

Christmas is starting to appear already here! There's a couple of shops that have started to get Christmas stock in, and craft magazines are giving away Christmas stamps and papers. While I definitely think it's too early for Christmas to be appearing in shops, it's never too early to start making Christmas cards. I was originally going to use the Christmas freebies that I got recently to make a card, but when I looked through my box of Christmas card supplies I wanted to use my Elzybells stamps. I did some masking to create this scene and used an Elzybells sentiment to finish too.

Strawberry Cupcake

One of my favourite stamp companies is having a DT call, and all you have to do is make a card using the freebie provided. I couldn't really say no. Just before making this I ate a triple chocolate cupcake, so I decided to colour it as a chocolate cupcake.

Maddie Four

This is the fourth and last of the Maddie cards. Scroll down to see the other three. I kept this one simple, and just used an Inkadinkado stamp to add a sentiment.

Maddie Three

This is the third Maddie card, scroll down for the other two. I used another of the old decorative card pack I haven't used for a while.

Maddie Two

This is the second Maddie from card, scroll down for the first. I recently bought a book of raffle tickets because I thought they would make an interesting embellishment for cards. I used a few here to create a background paper. When they were all stuck down I sprayed the paper with Aqua Creative Colour Spray.

Maddie One

I have used the four Maddie's from my hair colouring experiments on cards. Here is the first one. I will be posting the other three over the next few hours. She is backed on a paper from the Happy Days pack.

I've been playing with some buttons. I kept this card CAS becuase I thought the button heart was enough by itself.

Hair Experiments

No card today, just a few stamps I've coloured. I decided to watch a few different hair colouring tutorials on YouTube and see which worked best for me. I thought I'd share a picture of the different styles that I tried. Which do you think looks best?

I thought for this image I would make a card which contrasts with it. I used a floral paper and a fun sentiment to balance out the dark image.

Olympic Inspired Nails

I'm a little late posting this. This is what I had on my nails at the start of the week. I have been really enjoying watching the Olympics, so I felt inspired to put a few flags on my nails.

Live the Life You Love

I pulled out an old card base for this one. I have had this pack of decorative cards (I don't have the box, but I think they were by DCWV) for a few years and barely used any of them. They caught my eye when I sat down to make this though. It's always fun to rediscover old supplies so I might use a few more of them soon.

Just a quick post as I really should be in bed right now. This card uses Skate Chick from Kenny K and a scrap from Papermania's Capsule Collection in Black which when cut into three fit perfectly on this card.

Happy Days

This card uses my new favourite paper pad Happy Days by Papermania. The stamp was printed twice so that I could pop the balloon up.
