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

My Son's 21st Birthday Card

My son recently turned 21, yes it was a shock the years go by so quickly! However creating a card for a guy is never easy, so I chose to make a personalised card using the New Penny Black A to Z clear Stamp set the Doodles Die and some numbers too from the Charms set!

21 already

I stamped the blue paper with the 21 numbers using Imagine Craft Memento Paris Dusk ink and then die cut along the bottom edge to create the word border.

I then die cut celebrate in black card and added to the patterned paper, this was then mounted onto the  top of a white card blank.

The Name was then stamped with Memento Paris Dusk and coloured using Chameleon Color Tone Pens, Spring Meadow, Royal Blue and Sky Blue.

I am now feeling rather old as both my children are now officially adults!

Bear Wishes

Oh my have you heard Imagine Craft/Tsukineko have a new product called Amplify, it is amazing, be warned mind it is addictive you will want to amplify everything in site!


What is it I hear you ask?  Well it is a liquid that you apply to your card and then heat and it puffs up like magic, you can see I have used it on this card to create my little bear's pom pom on his hat!

This card was created using Penny Black Stamps, Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko inks and Chameleon Color Tone Pens, doesn't he just look cute!

Thanks for stopping by, hugs
