More cards.......

Hi Bloggers!

Just a quick post today with a few quick cards.

I belong to the Little Claire's club and membership means that I get a monthly stamp, card and newsletter.

As always, it was a lovely stamp that I received this month. I like the card that was designed for them this month, but I thought that I could use the contents, with some bits from my stash to make three cards. This is what I came up with :)

Hope that you like them - the card with Giggle on is my favourite. These will be RAK's and they will be winging their way off shortly.

Thanks for popping by - please leave a comment to say you have called.

A couple of quick Stamped cards.

Hi Bloggers!

Hope that the weather with you is fine? It is not so hot here today - quiet pleasant :)

This card is quiet simple to make using some of my Little Claire Stamps. I love colouring them with my promarkers/copics pens. I also cut a butterfly using my 3d die. Didn't take too long to make but I think it is effective.

This card was made using my First Edition Papers - they are embossed papers from the Bird Song set. I used a new corner die and a new stamp both purchased at the NEC earlier this year. The Butterfly stamp is from Little Claire's and coloured again with my Promarkers/Copics. Used an ink pad in pink to edge the stamps as it makes them stand out.

This card is a variation on the above using a different corner die.

Hope that you like my quick cards. Please do leave a comment on my blog.

Happy Birthday Tim :)

Hi Bloggers!

Just a quick post to say Happy Birthday to my Husband Tim. We have had a great family weekend and we have spent two days with little Charlie. The Colman juniors came for a birthday barb-b-que and it was pleasantly warm and not to hot. We are off for a meal with our good friends tomorrow evening to continue the celebrations.

Here is the card I made for Tim - with a Tilly on it :)

Hope you have had a great weekend all - I have :)

Little Claire's Stamp of the month.

Hi Bloggers!

Just a quick post today - Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine :)

Firstly, the card created with the Little Claire's stamp of the month from their club. The card was not designed by me, but put together by me :)

A beautiful stamp and I just loved the idea of using some of the matching paper for the umbrella :)
(You can see it if you look closely)

I then made two fairly quick and simple cards, using the club stamp - both using the same idea.

The first card has a lovely summery feel to it - with the yellow daisies. Just love the corner stamp to.

The second card, same stamps but with a pinky colour.

I hope that you like my cards and please, when you pop by, leave me a comment to say ' Hi! '

What do you think about Mini-Zine's?

Hello Bloggers!

Well, I am back from my two week break and wanted to share something that I made in June 2013. It was for a swap in a group and was called a Mini-Zine. It is made from one sheet of paper and is quiet easy to do.

Link to "How to make a mini-zine"

So, after making the Mini-Zine, it was time to look at my stamps and pick a theme - I decided on flowers.

This is the front and back cover :

The stamps here are from Little Claire's Stamps. The journalling is facts that were supplied by Google :)

Inside two pages:

Another stamp by Little Claire's and a glimmer mist spray added to the background.

Next inside pages:

Another stamp from Little Claire's Stamps and facts from Google :)

Last two pages:

More stamps from Little Claire's Stamps and my journalling.

A sweet idea I am sure you will agree and something I will try again. The link for Little Claire's Stamps :)

Would love to see any that you may create - Please leave me a comment on my blog to let me know you have dropped by.

Happy Crafting!
