We All Need A Friend

A true friend is there for you during the good times and the bad and part of the unwritten rules of Friends is that you should always be there for them too!

I have a friend that is really struggling at the moment and I wanted to send her a card just to let her know I am there if she needs me. I thought I would share it here with a video on how it was colored too.

Materials used: Chameleon Color Tone pens, Penny Black Fab Friends Stamp, Memento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Onyx Black ink, Orange card, Scallop off cuts.

Here is a short video showing how it was colored.

Thanks for joining me today, I will be back soon with another project. Hugs

Wonderful Waste

Hi Everyone, if you are reading this then welcome, I know it has been an absolute age since I last posted on my blog, life, work and general busyness just seemed to take over, but today I was determined to re-ignite my crafting just for ME!

Many of you know I am in love with my Penny Black stamps and dies and they are always bringing out new products that just make you want to go oh yes I NEED THAT!  Like their latest release here.

But today is about some dies from their Little Bit of Sunshine release, the dies in this collection are a must and I know as soon as my Mum sees this Floral Butterfly die she is going to want it!

I created two cards with this die, one from the negative waste and one from the actual die, so don't ever throw away the bit that is left!

I also used Penny Black's Love to Travel Die and Happy Snippets Transparent sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed visiting me today, I will hopefully be back soon with more inspiration.

Mushroom Girl

I just adore this new stamp set by Penny Black called Missing You, it has the cutest images!

Shroom Girl Card

 Stamp the girl using Imagine Crafts Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured using my Chameleon Color Tone Pens Seville Orange, Fawn, Hot Cocoa, Warm Sunset, Crimson Red, Cool Grey, Sky Blue, Deep Black and Bark. Cut round her as can be seen in this close up.

Shroom Girl

Die cut an oval aperture using Spellbinders classic ovals and stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt clear stamp set using Imagine Crafts Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Die cut a larger oval in a piece of Coco Style Patterned paper and mounted onto the card blank, this was then edged with faux stitching using the Chameleon detail pen.

Add the Flower Frolic die cut and then mount the stamped image to the side of the oval to complete.

Thanks for joining me today, hugs
