Crafty Cardmakers and More #110 Come Fly With Me

Happy Monday to you all

Once more time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More where for the next fortnight the lovely and Talented Viv will be our hostess. Viv has chosen Come Fly With Me and she would like to see birds or bird related themes on your cards. So what did I make…..


I used this lovely digital image from Nicecrane Designs and added lashings of Glossy Accents to the little birdies not very evident from my photo of course. The frame was cut using my Cameo and embellished with a small resin flower that I made using one of my moulds.


My lovely winged lady insisted she get in on the act !


This little birdie family also wanted to make an appearance, made with my Cameo and a little touch of yellow copics .

We have two fabulous sponsors this time round Hobby  Art Stamps


One lucky winner will get to take home this fabulous prize.

Di’s Digi Stamps is offering a $12 gift voucher to one lucky winner

Di's Digis-2

why not pop on over to Crafty Cardmakers and More to see what the rest of the talented DT have come up with to inspire you all.

Right that’s all from me, wishing you all a wonderful day.

Take care


ATCAS # 32 Coffee

A big bright and beautiful good day to you and here’s hoping you are all well and looking forward to a wonderful weekend.

Time for a new code word at ATCAS which has been chosen for us by the delightful, delectable and amazingly talented Deepti.

ATCAS - codeword coffee

Great code word Deepti !

So for all of you coffee aficionados out there time to pay homage to your favorite beverage.

Although I love the stuff I didn’t have a single  coffee related stamp so once again Lil Ms Cameo helped me out all except for the embossing and placement, now wouldn’t that be something if it could emboss !!!


 lots of these angled cards out there in blogland at the moment so thought I would give it a go , drove me mad and took longer to do that than make the card ! My little pea brain kept interfering and shouting for me to straighten the damn thing up but I won out in the end Ha ! or did I , not to sure about that.

We are once again sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who are most generously offering 7 digi stamps !

That’s all from me off to work

Take care


CAS-olgy Week 82: BOLD !

Hello lovely ladies

One of my favorite challenge blogs CAS-olgy has a super new cue word for us this week

Week 82 - Bold

Well thats my kinda word !

Once again the fabulous and talented DT have created some amazing cards to inspire us, duly inspired this is what I came up with


My lovely Cameo helped me cut three layers of 350gsm heavy-duty card stock which have been sandwiched together with foam tape between each layer. Unfortunately due to my rubbish photography you can’t really see the depth of it. Sparkly foam as a base and popped up on more card stock and there you have it.


Here it is on a much larger scale and framed but without the sparkle, love the shadow effect and much prefer it minus the sparkle , what do you think ?

Do pop over to Cas-olgy lots of fantastic cards in the gallery already.

That’s all from me , off to my cookery class ( Indian ) will be back later to see what you have all been up to.

Take care


Fusion #3

I’ve been following the fabulous ladies at Fusion for quite some time and to be honest have always been a little intimidated by their amazing talent. The time has come however to take a  deep breath and dip my little pinkie into the water and have a little splash around with the other lovely ladies.


Love the sketch and the photo inspiration and have two cards to share, now maybe I should have made two separate posts but these little cards just didn’t want to be separated .

This first card is for the photo inspiration


My lovely cameo created the image and the frame and I added lashings of Glossy Accents although you wouldn’t know it by the photo !

This one is for the sketch


Once again little Ms Cameo with the aid of GA

You can can understand why these two guys wanted to stick together they just wouldn’t look the same on their own ! I hope Mr Mustache is ok for the sketch as his whiskers don’t quite reach the corner of the card , please feel free to disqualify him if he doesn’t fit the bill.

Do pop over to Fusion` to see the fabulous inspirational cards by the amazing DT and the entries are amazing, what a talented bunch of ladies you all are.


ATCAS # 31 Love

Hello gorgeous girls !

Time for a new challenge at ATCAS and for the next fortnight we have a fantabulous theme for you all .The lovely and talented Jaydee our newest ATCAS team member is our hostess so come and see what she has chosen as her code word

ATCAS - code word love

Well I think you’ll agree this is the perfect code word for this time of year,  come and see what I made and I have to warn you that there is actually some stamping involved !!!!!!!


I created the frame with the Spellbinders card creator and cut a couple of hearts with Ms Cameo. Coloured the hearts with Pan Pastels and stamped them with an IndigoBlu crackle stamp. Sentiment courtesy of SU,  can you believe it I actually got down and dirty , well actually pink/blue and pastelly !!!

Not satisfied with only one card and loving the chalky mess made with my PP’s I made something very similar using a SU swirly whirly stamp ( yes more stamping and Pan Pastelling ) I needed a little lie down and a gin after that !


I see that CAS-ual Fridays has a great theme that I think these cards fit into perfectly so will be linking up there too.


We are once again sponsored by StampArt Design
