Queen Of Hearts

Back again with a shaker card this time!  I haven't made many of these but I thought this fitted this character perfectly. 

Queen of Hearts from Heartcraft Papers March release.  

With the shaker mix I only had sequins red, black and silver.  So, I grabbed one of my dies that had multiple tiny hearts and cut out a few of these and added them to the mix.  If you don't have the right colour mix....make your own!  
I hope you liked this project.  Have a great day!

Bursting Love

The March Kindred release is here!
And didn't I have some fun!  That is the name of the game after all.  When I first got this set I was thinking....ummmm. But once I made my first card the ideas just started flowing.  
Bursting Love is the set I am sharing today.

This first project is a gift tag. Uses 4 images from the set and I just hand drew a party hat and gift.  Just a little light humour for this one. 

This female image is bad ass!  And her stance just enhances this.  I put a wall between these 2 as I really don't think they get  

This one has the humour in it also.  This is what I call "special hugs".  A bit of sass for that friend we all 
Both these projects, I have use the Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder (rivots I think) on silver foil card.  Then rubbed black paint over it, then wiped off with a dry paper towel.  Gives that great industrial look and feel.  

The entire Kindred Stamps March release will be available Friday, March 22nd at 8am PST/11am EST.

CDD Wedding and Non release

I have 2 projects to share with you today.  To start with I will share my wedding card.  
This image is from Wedding Day Digital Stamp.  I love this gorgeous couple.  You can change the hair to suit the couple and the colour of the card and flowers to suit the brides choice of colours (if you know them), or just your favourite colours, after all the card is from you.  

The second project is a non release card, but a different kind of folding one.  

When I cut an A4 piece of card in half to get my card base, instead of folding it in half I measured the half way point and folded the two sides in to meet in the middle.  Cut some patterned paper ti fit each panel.  The rectangle shape on the front is only adhered to one of these panels allowing the card to open from the centre.  
The tree trunk image is Growing Love and the cute bunny is Spring Friends. A great combo.  You could make this into an Easter card or even a welcome baby card.  Versatile images allow you do change it up to whatever is needed at the time!  Love it!

Don't forget to check out all the other fabulous projects from the other Design Team members over on the gallery page on FB.  The ideas are limitless.

CDD gnome

I have another share today for you all.  This "sexy" gnome.  LOL  This is from the latest release from 
I had to go punny with these gorgeous little images.  How can you not!  

Spring Gnome
This fellow has a little more self confidence than me...hehe.  If these gnomes were in a animated show of their own I reckon this one would be the silent type.  Sweet and silent.  The foliage is from Inside Scallop Circle dies and the frame is Inside Scallop Rectangle dies

Don't forget Craftin Desert Diva's are having a challenge over on their FB page.  Go and check it out!

The Greatest Birthday

and welcome to project 2 of 3 for the versatile stamp set Come One Come All.
This card was inspired by all the circuses I visited when I was a child.  They were not my favourite thing (the smell was the worst! LOL) but I did enjoy seeing animals I would not normally get to see in my small home town.  
With every circus comes a Ringleader.  I always loved the rich colours of their costumes and the whole theater of being in front of a captivated audience.  

Doesn't he look smart in his tales and top hat!  After colouring his coat, I kept the rich red theme for the curtains and the gold for the tiebacks and the ropes holding onto the sentiment sign.

And to make the spotlight on him I simply cut out an oval shape and used it as a stencil with some white Kraft ink.  Then cut another stencil with 2 lines slowly meeting each other at the top, and used a little less ink this time.  
I also thought I would be clever and cut out his whip but as I was cutting I snipped some off.  Ooops!  LOL.  
Cannot wait to give this to my daughter.  I am sure she will love it!  

Thanks for looking

Superb Blue Wren

 Good Morning Everyone...
We have a great sponsor this week:

Beccy's Place has generously offered a $10AU Gift Voucher towards digital stamps in their store.

Here is sketch #555:

And here is my card.  I didn't quite stick with the sketch.  I removed a circle so I could make the most of this beautiful image of Superb Fairy Wren .

Being an Aussie I just love this image.  Beccy has soooo many gorgeous flora and fauna images. In fact most themes are covered.  This will not be the last image I use from this shop.  
In fact I have made another card using this image but will share another time.  

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a go at the challenge.  You have the chance to win a voucher from Beccy's!  

Hanging With My Gnomies

My Gnomies are here!!!  At first glance I was in luuuurve!  I don't think I own any gnome stamps.  But these are just too cute to go past.  
And there are so many gnome puns you can use.  
Here is my project using the new release images from Spring Gnome, from Craftin Desert Divas

The cutest gnome family around.  And there are so many accessories in this digital download.  The Mushroom house, little mushroom bunch and flowers and butterflies!  One of my favourite releases I reckon. 
Go and do yourself a favour and check them out!
