Seriously, I'm going to have to start writing everything down - I keep missing things :-( So, I was supposed to post this yesterday. It's for the LOTV facebook 'Birthday' challenge. Follow the link to play: https://www.facebook.com/events/202359133604912/
I really love this cute image and these papers are just yum!
On May 20th LOTV are releasing some new images - happy dance! The Design Collective have made some stunning cards and I can't wait for the release :-) I've made two cards with the beautiful 'Two's Company' image.
I used the night sky technique from the August 2016 Kit and Clowder class to help with the background. It was my first go but I love how it changes the image. I'm definitely going to give this another try - much to improve on but I love the idea!
I made this one using the clouds from the Hunkydory 'Another Year Taller' stamp set. Such a sweet image - I love how the little bear is gazing up at the school :-)
Jeepers it's been a busy weekend - crazy - and that's why my post is several hours late. Ooops. Sorry. So for the next couple of months Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge is about 'Fantasy'. Think mermaids, gnomes, unicorns - and I suggested husbands that do the washing up!!!
I love doing this fold :-)
I used the following Hunkydory stamp sets: Home in a Dome, Wishing Well and Another Year Taller. I left Crafter's Companion a couple of weeks ago and have just started a six month stint on the Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps DT and couldn't be happier.
Good grief, what a crazy busy Easter holiday that was! I need a good rest now ;-) I'm here today with a Crafty Ribbons card. I've used the Garden Gnome ribbon with these fabulous MFT 'You Gnome Me' stamps (thank you Squirrel x).
I have way too many busy jobs to do today :-( May have a cup of tea to get me going!! Hope you have a great week xxx
Oh my, I love her soooooo much! How pretty is that 'hair'?
I've spent the weekend happily stamping and colouring. A trip to the cinema set off a really horrid bout of dizziness so I'm taking things a bit easier and doing small bursts of activity - I'm not a fan of constant nausea - it's like being pregnant!
You still have 12 days to join us :-) Hugs, Jayne xx
Ooooh, I've had a naughty week of slacking with the housework whilst I finish my first Kit and Clowder pencil class. In my defence I'm using it for my Mother-in-Laws Mother's Day card so I did need to finish it!!
It's the second thing I've attempted with the pencils and I really feel like i'm getting the hang of them. Can't believe I've avoided them for so long.
I highly recommend the classes at Kit and Clowder. My copics and Prismacolor pencils cost a fortune and I'm determined to get the most out of them :-)
Sorry I haven't visited anyone in blogland for an age - life has been crazy the last few months but I'm making changes. I'm a girl with a plan. Be scared!!! Hugs xxxxxx
For the next couple of months over on Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge we are hosting a Spring Fever challenge! So any card with a spring theme - flowers, crazy weather, new starts etc. I've made a card with the new Polkadoodles Darling Bud digi release.
I finally finished my January Kit and Clowder colouring class - I feel like I've been colouring forever! So glad I kept going back to it and I did learn a lot - I've never used blending solution on a background before :-)
I'm going to look for an LOTV fairy that I can use this technique with.
I'm still coughing and spluttering and driving myself nuts! I'm staying away from housework too - it's seriously bad for my health. Whilst trying to extricate the ironing board from the under stairs cupboard the vacuum fell over and hit me on the head and then when I started ironing I ran over my finger with the iron. See, it's really too dangerous! I'm off to make a cuppa and do some colouring xxx
Today I've got this super cutie from Polkadoodles teamed up with NitWit papers. I coloured her up with the Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens (skin - RB1, FS7, FS8, FS9, PP1. Dress - BT5, AB1, AB3. Hair EB7, GB9, EB2)
I've still got this rotten cold - it doesn't seem to be going anywhere!!! The window cleaner informed me that it's 'going round'!!
Hope that you're having a fab week. Hugs, Jayne xx
This is one of the soon to be released stamps/digis from Lili of the Valley (released 28th January - whoopeeeee!)
Such a beautiful, elegant image :-)
Loving this new fold. I bookmarked the page with the instructions but now I've lost it! I think I found it on a blog by a lady called Jennifer but I'm hazy on the detail - as you are when you get giddy!!!!
I promise not to embark on a 'death by photo' post!!
Right, that's me. I really am going to try and be a better blogger. Sigh. Thank you for visiting me. Hugs, Jayne xx
Aww, this image is just tooooo cute! It's one from Stampingbella and it was given to me by my friend Annette :-) It's also the first thing I coloured with my Illustrator pens many months ago.
I've used the Perfect Pear papers from NitWit Collections and the 15mm pink/white check ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
Golly, it's been such a busy week and I have a crazy weekend of playdates and classes :-) Plus I have to attack my daughters clothes with every stain remover known to man as every day she has returned from preschool wearing several layers of paint!!!! Have a great weekend, Jayne xxx
I made this sample using the Fanciful Fuchsia stamps and Illustrator pens from Crafters Companion. Jeepers - these little critters were a trial to put together! Once I'd consulted the fountain of wisdom that is youtube the construction of the fuchsias became clearer but still a tad tricky.
It's not my usual style but I was super chuffed with myself when I'd finished!!
I am such a bad blogger. This is my first post this year - shocking!! In my defence I've been poorly and the last few weeks have sucked! Making this card, however, cheered me up! I've used the super cute Lili of the Valley 'April Fairy' together with a raindrop stencil and some clear embossing paste :-)
There's nothing like splashing in puddles with your wellie bobs on!!!!
Hope you've had a great start to the year. Sending hugs, Jayne xx
