A new addition!

I have been quiet on this blog for the last two weeks as we have a new addition!  Those of you that follow along here know that we have puppy walked for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind in the past.  You can see those stories here and here.

So we are on the puppy walking journey again with a new cutie!  This is Guy (G Litter), he has settled in very quickly and is a joy!.  He is learning fast, is hugely curious and full of beans!.

Pictured above as we set off on a car journey.  Thanks for peeking.

You're Engaged!

Supplies:  Patterned paper - Cirque Card Kit SC, stamp - 
Poets Society Card Kit SC, white vellum, sequins and seed 
beads, memento black ink, Congrats die cut - Papertrey 
ink, pearlescent card and envelope, machine stitching 
and photo mount adhesive.

So if you have been following along recently you will realise that I am on a mission to work through my stash.  Here is another card using items from two Studio Calico Card kits - Cirque and Poets Society.  I layered up six "congrats" die cuts to create depth - I did sneak two gold layers in the middle!.  My new find is photo mount spray adhesive - makes it sooo easy to layer up those die cuts.

Had to follow the current trend and make this fun shaker card.  I knew it was not going in the mail so the bulk didn't matter.  Tip - the seed beads help the sequins to move around under the vellum. 

 Thanks for peeking.

Happy 50th!

Underground Stamp Kit digital image - SC, happy die, mini alphas - SC, 
Pop art card kit - green envelope - SC, copics, adhesive.

New Year's Resolution! - I am trying my best to use up my old card kits from Studio Calico and work my way through my "stash!".  Above is an example of finding some pre cut digital images from SC and pairing with a fun green envelope from a kit and some cardstock for a simple (flat for posting internationally) 50th birthday card.

Thanks for peeking.

Super Hero Time!

Patterned paper - SC Galileo Card Kit and sentiment - SC, Superhero digital image -  
Whimsie Doodles, Coloured with copices, machine stitching and 6x6 card blank.

Happy New Year to all!  
Hope you had a great time with family and friends and are refreshed and looking forward to 2016!.

While doing a "sort through" before Christmas I found this digital image printed and cut out but uncoloured.  I immediately remembered I had a fun boys art card by Ashley Goldberg for Studio Calico that it would pair with and hey presto the above card came to life!.  I have just spent a "little" while going through my digital image files to find where this cute image originated from and I found it in my Whimsie Doodles folder from 2012.  

Thanks for stopping by - hope you are enjoying the weekend.

You lift me up!

Quick card share today.

I dug out the stamp set from the Studio Calico - Cirque Card Kit to stamp the hot air balloon and sentiment and used kraft cardstock for the base.  

Sorry the photos are not great quality at the moment but we have had three storms blow through here - Storms Abigail, Barney and Clodagh and they have done nothing to aid with photo taking!.  More high winds today as Storm Desmond lashes the country but hopefully the wind will ease enough to let young sailors take to the water tomorrow.  The last few weekends have been blown out!

Sequins are from SC and I used PTI dies to cut the clouds.  The Peek a Frame Dies by Mama Elephant make another appearance - I think this stitched rectangle is my favourite die at the moment!.

Thanks so much for peeking.

A fun congratulations card or encouragement card - love the mix of sentiments which is something that I don't normally do!.  
 I can be a little odd about fonts and mixing fonts etc!.

"You did it" - is from WMS set "Kaboom" and "Hooray!" is from Studio Calico - Cirque Card Kit.  I stamped lots of stars in different colour inks from the cirque stamp set too.  The little girl is from Mama Elephant - in my heart stamp set and has matching dies. Patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Santa Express Paper Pack - gotta love when you can use it for non Holiday Cards too.

Thanks so much for peeking.

Shine Bright!

I have been playing around with this set and matching dies since it arrived in the mail from Concord & 9th.  They are a new stamp company and I just love what they are creating.  I used the Peek a Frame by Mama Elephant to created a stitched base and added the bulb using pop dots for added dimension.  Coloured with copics and three layers of glossy accents - very shiny in real life!

Thanks for peeking.
