Super Moose


The sponsor this time at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge is Bugaboo 
and this is one of their images called Christmas Moose Ornaments.


I have coloured Mr Moose with Polychromo pencils and the ornaments have been done using Gossip glitter brush pens from Stamps by Me. They are lovely and glittery shame it doesn't show on the photo. The image has been die cut using the Clarity Stamp picot dies, then inked through the die to leave a white edge.

I've been back on my scrap box again and used up some more left overs. The embossed background has been coloured with distress inks.


The holly has been die cut and red gems for berries and lastly some gold ribbon for the bow.

Eyelash Queen



Better late than never, I'm so behind. But here is my card for the current challenge over at

The theme is Anything Goes so really easy to join in.


I've used a Pink Ink stamp Giraffe and I'm so envious of those eyelashes. I've coloured it with polychromo pencils. The leaves are also in the stamp set and I've cut some out and layered them on top to add dimension.

Then just a simple sentiment to complete. Really like this one.

Baby Boy Bunny



It's new challenge time at Crafting with an Attitude and the theme this month is Anything Goes.

The image I have used is a Crafters Companion Stamp.


I have coloured it using alcohol pens. I have die cut and embossed the background with a little ink in the folder to add a bit of light colour. Also the shading round the image has been added through the die so it gives a white edge.


I have added a little ribbon and a couple of cute shaped buttons to decorate. I made this for a work colleague who has just welcomed a lovely little boy to the family.

Flower Corner



Another Spring Blooms idea from the Hunkydory stamps set. I've coloured the image with Polychromo pencils. I seem to be using them a lot at the minute so easy to use.

Another sample don using my Hunkydory spring flower stamp set. This time is a much simpler design. I've stamped the image and embossed it with gold powder on black card. 


The image and it's layers have been die cut. I have added a diagonal black ribbon and bow, plus a few black and white pearls.  The sentiment is stamped and has also been diecut out. A classic black and white card. Still more to come another day.

In the Pink



I've been playing with some new Hunkydory stuff again, this time it's a stamp set. It's from The love of Stamps range and it's called Spring Blooms edge it. I love these stamps, they're quite big so you don't really need much else on the card and they are lovely to colour.


I've coloured this one with Polychromo pencils and then cut it out by hand, which was quite easy too.
I have put it on a partially embossed white card, I've used the debossed side as I thought this looked better with my image. A piece of pink ribbon and the sentiment is also from the stamp set. 

There are some other cards to follow as these stamps just seemed to fill me with ideas.

Panel Weave


This is the second card made from my Hunkydory items. This card is made from the left overs of the last card. Very economical. This is still paper weaving but done closer together to make a proper panel. 


I've kept this a more clean and simple design with just a stamped sentiment and some candy dots. The stamped sentiment is also from Hunkydory but more about that soon.

Open weave



I have been playing with some stuff I've had from Hunkydory and this is the first card that I've made with it. It's been done using the Marvelous Mirri Lovely Lace pad.


I've used 3 different pages for the weaving and the background corners and one to die cut the leaves out of. It's a good weight and die cuts really well.


I've added some flowers to the leaves, a die cut sentiment and a pull bow to complete.

Cute Puppy

The image is from The Paper Shelter and is called Teacup Yorkie. I coloured him with Polychromo pencils. I kept the card rather girly and my friends favourite colour is pink.


So I just had to put on a big pink bow. He is really cute though.

Pot Peeker

The background die belonged to a friend and I cut it out ages ago to see what it looked like and I thought it would make a good background for this image, I have put copper metallic card behind to show off the design and added some gems and crystals to highlight the flower centres.


I really enjoyed colouring her.
