Messy Rabbit

I had fun making this quick card, I was sorting through my stash ans found the orange gingham.  Orange is not a colour I use often but this card just popped into my head.



I used Lyra crayons to colour Messy and I am very  pleased how my colouring is improving, I may even treat myself to a larger set of the Lyra’s soon.  I only have the starter set of 12 colours.

I nearly did not make it this week but here is my card.


I used some Elusive Images stamps and some rainbow vellum.  The text stamp is from Aspects of Design.


Windmill Reflection

Posted in Rubber Stamping tagged , , at 12:10 am by Sue

A slow week card wise.  I suddenly remembered I had not made a present for my son’s teacher.  I always stitch something for their teacher’s at primary school so that took up most of my crafting time.  I did fit in another card last night when I finished stitching Popcorn and made him into an ornament.  Funny my son picked a Popcorn chart maybe it was seeing the Popcorn stamps from Crafter’s Companion..


I used to use this Art-Kure stamp a lot not sure why I stopped using it.  I just stamped it and used a water brush to go over the ink on the water part of the image.   You never have to do much to this stamp, it always looks great.

Owl Friends

I do love black and white and use it a lot.  I used one of the new Shabeabilities pendants from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis.  I can see me using this one a lot it’s great.  Owls are another favourite of mine and these ones look great with their googlie eyes.

Renaissance Hearts

Posted in Spellbinders tagged at 12:55 pm by Sue

I love these new Spellbinder Pendant dies and could not wait until I could order one.  The first one I have is the Renaissance Hearts, I also have the borderbilities to go with this one but not used it yet.



This was a very quick card to make as I just had to try out these dies as soon as I got them.  I added a paper rose to the centre and a large ribbon bow to finish it off.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

A new sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday


Here is my card


Oh dear the scan does not look very good, I think I may have to look at using the camera to take photo’s of my cards, not sure why some look alright and other don’t.

I used a Penny Black stamp image stamp coloured with Lyra crayons.  Aspects of Design word sentiment stamp. Nestabilities scalloped ovals and heart die-cut.  Cuttlebug bubble embossing folder.  The flowery paper I inked around the edges lightly using cut and dry foam.


Lavender Fairy

This is the first challenge on the Crafters Companion blog, it is a sketch challenge

Here is the Crafters Companion Blog


Here is the sketch

Here is my card


I turned the sketch onto it’s side as I wanted to use the decoupage Lavender Fairy and she looked better this way.  The purple organza ribbon does not show up very well in the scan.

I used the lavender Fairy and Lavender Fairy backing paper from the Crafters Companion Flower Fairy CD.  I think the butterfly card is from Kanban and the wired dragonfly is from Syntego.
