Mischievous

Its been a wee while since I made a card, so this evening after the torrential rain stopped… I headed up the garden to my wee shed and made a card…

I’d bought the collection pack of halloween papers called Mischievious by My Minds Eye

It’s probably a tad early to be making halloween cards, but I fancied making a card with the cute wee witchy from the die cut sheet

 

Supplies list :-

  • My Minds Eye Mischievous patterned paper & diecuts pack
  • Stampin up dimensional adhesive
  • Gutterman Silver thread & the sewing machine
  • Prima Crystals
  • Wild Orchid Crafts 15mm Black open roses
  • Hot glue gun
  • Black Soot Distress Ink

Bicycle Postcard

Happy Friday everyone!

I have the next 4 days off as a kind of mid summer break, things are about to get really busy at work and I probably wont get a chance to have much in the way of holidays any time soon… so i’m planning to have some creative time on my wee shed at the top of the garden, which has been getting seriously neglected!

I made this postcard a couple of days ago when I popped up to my shed just for a wee visit, and fancied making “something” but didnt Quite know what 🙂

I made this postcard with what I had lying around on my desk….

Supplies List :

  • Postcard Kit from The Works
  • Sweetly Smitten 6 x 6 Patterned Paper from Sassafrass Lass
  • Wild Orchid Crafts Lace & Mulberry Flowers
  • Kaiser Craft chipboard bicycle from the Gelato Range
  • Echo Park Stickers
  • Frayed Burlap and lucky Limeade Inks
  • hot glue and scortape

I made the following rosette for the top left hand corner of the postcard where the trio of flowers now reside, but I took it back off because it just didnt look right.. but do love how it looks on its own 🙂

I will be working on finishing my latest DT Project for Wild Orchid Crafts this weekend and hope to have the video and blog posts done sometime around sunday…. but for now, i’ll leave you with a wee sneeky peek

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

A Simple Thankyou Card

Its been a busy morning here… firstly I drove my son to work, and when I got home I got the feather duster out the marigolds on and the furniture polish, duster and hoover out and got cracking with the housework 😉

I headed up to my shed after i’d finished, mainly to record a tutorial for the box inserts for the mini bags, a couple of people had messaged me on Youtube and asked if I could help out with a tutorial… so I recorded away, made the box and when I replayed the video it started off ok, then I lost the sound, then it went into slow motion.. I tell ya, it’s a hit or a miss with that new camera of mine at the moment!! … it’s not like it gets overworked!

So I have to do it all over again.. but later on today…

When I was downtrodden over the video episode, I sat back in my chair and had a nose round my desk, noticed some stamp sets that had not been used and made this simple thank you card… a bit of a consolation for the failed vid.

It’s made entirely with stampin up! products…

  • Stampin Up Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Stampin Up Vive La Nature Stamp Set
  • Stampin Up Stampin’ Write Markers (old set no longer in the catalogue) but used 2 x greens and 2 x yellowy orange pens
  • Stampin Up Dimensional Adhesive
  • Edged in Lucky Limeade using a Tim Holtz blending tool

There’s not much to this card … but I love clean and simple thankyou’s, … dont you? 🙂

Happy Sunday everyone x
