celebrate with Cupcake Belle

Hello. Today I have my DigiStamp Boutique card to share. The adorable Belle takes centre stage along with a yummy looking cupcake. I found the perfect papers in my stash - 'Double the Fun' by taylored expressions. I used prismacolour pencils to colour and all the background pieces were cut using MFT Blueprints 18 dies.

I have some exciting (and also a bit scary) crafty news, all will be revealed very soon!

Holiday High Five


 Hello. This month my pocket money was spent on more of 'My Favourite Things'. This stamp set is 'Christmas Cuteness' and I bought the matching dies - I'm becoming a very lazy crafter! The 'hill' was die cut using Stitched Borders from Paper Smooches. A little bit of copic colouring and job done.

Right, short and sweet tonight - I have a friend from work, who wants to start making cards, coming round to play so I'm off to put the kettle on and hide the good papers!!

a time for giving


Hello. Autumn has well and truly arrived, we've had four seasons in one day today - rain, wind, blue skies and even a little bit of thunder! Anyway all my magazine commissions are 'in the bag' so I had a little crafty me time. 

There are so many different projects and techniques on my to do list - get my gelli plate back out, make a start on my art doodle book, have another go at the inky arty stuff with all those stencils I had to have! But, I decided I didn't have that much time! So I coloured up this little Sugar Nellie cutie and made a simple card, leaving the experimental stuff to another day!

Once again I used shades of the one colour, I'm liking this look at the mo' and saves me hurting my brain trying to work out colour combinations!!

Merry Christmas - Bert

Hello. Meet Bert, one of the new characters at the DigiStamp Boutique. Don't you just want to pick him up and squish him - in a good way, of course!

I coloured Bert with Copic marker pens and the glamour dust on the stars and ground really does sparkle in real life - honest!

Believe


Hello. I treated myself to a couple of Sugar Nellie digis. I saw this card that my new blogging buddy Marilyn did as her DT card for the Sugar Bowl challenge and I was smitten that very moment and needed that digi! And so I have taken my inspiration from Marilyns card, thank you.

I coloured with Copic marker pens and the background paper is from the Gilded Winter pad available in the BfB shop here. I am entering my little card into the Sugar Bowl Challenge. 

Rightyho, I'm off now to claim my spot on the sofa for Strictly. Either the dog or hubby has to go!
