Wee Stamp Digi

Birds On A Swing

These lovely sweet love birds are now available at Cuddly Buddly  they are from Wee Stamps and are designed by Sylvia Zet. 

I have coloured my birdies in with Copic and Prisma pencils, adding some glossy accents to the flowers to make them stand out. The lovely designer papers are from Cuddly Buddly from the Cottage collection, in Duck Egg Blue. I have to admit I quite like this colour combo although not one I would of thought myself.
The lovely BIG bow was made with my Bow Easy with VERY wide ribbon.

I have been missing in Blogland as wasn't very well last weekend, had a terrible tummy bug which knocked me for six, thankfully feel a little better now :) 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend x

For you with Love

I made this card last week for Valentines day but forgot to post them, dippy person that I am! Thought I would still share it with you anyway, mat be I can change the greeting to Congratulations on  your engagement lol.... I do love the LOTV toppers for a nice easy card. This one I have used Pink Petticoat papers with and brown card stock , although it looks black on the photo.

I haven't made any cards so far this weekend, but plan on taking part in a few challenges tomorrow so watch this space. I hope the weather starts to warm up soon as its been a little chilly lately but at least the nights are getting lighter which is a real plus.

Less Is More

Well this is a first for me as don't do Clean and simple cards, always use DP papers on my cards so am a little out of my depth here lol... so please be gentle with me if leaving a comment as I'm not sure about this one it lacking in something may be a little bow where the flowers stems cross over?

 The rules where OLC One Layer Card
One piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped directly onto the cardstock.

I have enjoyed looking at all the cards made by everyone else and found this wonderful website 'Paper Garden' where I downloaded this image for FREE, will be back to purchase more if I can get to grips with Less Is More cards, must admit they are a lot quicker to make.

Tools ~ Paper Pricking tool and mat SU!

Best Fishes

Good morning the sun is shining here this morning but boy was it cold last night. I wish the weather would make its mind up what its doing, the poor bulbs in the garden will be getting well confused lol..

Here is one of those dreaded male cards that we all dislike making, I do cringe when people ask for a card for the men in their lives lol..

 This is 'Best Fishes' From Cuddly Buddly he is available as in 3D, digi or rubber, coloured with Copics and prisma pencils. The fishes have had some glossy accents added to make them look all slippy and slimy lol.... 

Tools ~ Nestabilities oval, Quickutz stars, SU Border eyelet punch.

In The Pink

Good morning Bloggers its been a while since i have posted anything I have to admit I'm not feeling very crafty lately :( I received my new Marianne branch die from Cuddly Buddly and was itching to use it. I already had Bea coloured up so only had to print off some papers and trow them together on a card and voila card almost made. I'm not sure about the dragonfly on it now think it makes it look a little tacky lol..

Bea has been coloured with Copics and prisma pencils, some glossy accents added to her wellington boots to give that wet look lol.. think my wellies will be very wet and muddy after I have walked the dogs today as not a very nice day here today. 

I am entering my card into the Teddy Bo Challenge which is 'In The Pink'

Tools ~ Marianne Branch die, Fiskars Sunburst punch, Nestabilities
Embellishments ~ Pink Bows, Pearls, Flowers

Elines Cute Babies

These Little Cuties by Eline Pellinkhoff are now also available at Cuddly Buddly for you to download, there are also digi stamps if you fancy colouring them in yourself.
I have used Elines 'Baby Boys bed and bathtime' set which are just fab for those quick baby cards we get asked to make, there are so many bits and pieces in this set you could make loads of different cards.
If you pop across to Cuddly Buddly you will also get a sneeky peep at one of Kim's new creations' Eliza' she looks super sweet, can't wait to meet her :)
