Another Easter Card,

Hi peeps, would you believe I’ve made two Easter cards this year and I don’t usually make any but I couldn’t resist this cute image and she just begged me to buy her lol, I hadn’t got an egg stamp so I cut one from pearlised card using an oval nestie, then I used a stamp which I’ve had forever to put the speckle effect on, sewed zigzag in the middle to look like it’s cracking, no wonder she looks a little startled he he,

She has been coloured in Distress inks using the new spun sugar colour for her little oufit, the fence is made using a Martha Stewart punch to create a fence, well that’s what it is supposed to look like lol,and I’ve done zigzag stitching again for the edge of my outer layer background,I’m entering this into two challenges, Magnolia Down Under~ Stitching,   Humble Pie Stamps~ Easter,


Items Used,

Distress Inks, Pearls, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Feather,Magnolia paper, Colour Coredinations card, Textured card, sewing machine, Speckle stamp, computer generated sentiment, Lge and sm oval Nestie,  PHEW got to the end lol,

P1010823I’m not as pleased with her colouring as I had to use some water colour paper that wasn’t as good, so the colours haven't blended as well, so it’s off to the shops to get some more of the other one I usually use, hope you all have a good day, thanks for looking hugs Liz xx

Just Because,

Hi peeps, just thought I’d show you a card I have done for the Copic Colour Challenge which is to use the colours G99, BV08, E59, or your nearest one’s which you have, I do so love these challenges, any way here it is,


This lovely Hangler image was sent to me by a lovely friend, so thank you very much she’s adorable and I so enjoyed colouring her, the BP are from a Pink Petticoat Download, the ribbon is from a craft shop I got last year when I was on holiday, the swirls are a spellbinders diecut and the flower charm is from stash that I’ve had so long I don’t know where it came from lol, the flower stamps are a mixture from a local craft shop and a freebie from a craft mag,

P1010821Hope your all having a lovely weekend, having fun, thanks for looking, hugs Liz xx

Spring Blossoms Tilda,

Hi peeps, hope your all having fun, I’m sat here freezing trying very hard not to put the heating on as the sun is shining but the wind is very cold and it’s making the house feel cold as well, and hubby’s just told me they forecast snow for Tuesday, it feels like it could do it today lol, any way enough of my mumbling as your probably bored already he he,  so on to my card which is the gorgeous new image Tilda with three flowers I think he he, sent as a RAK by the lovely Cheryl, thanks so much hun, coloured with my copics, raised  on to the gorgeous new background stamp which I’ve coloured with Distress inks, highlighted with Stickles, the BP is also Magnolia aren’t these just too  gorgeous, the flowers are a Sissix large flourish Die which has a flower on as well, so I stuck two flowers together at the bottom to hopefully appear as a sort of tulip to echo the stamps added a middle of different coloured card and highlighted them with glitter also, a couple of wraps of raffia and a punched Butterfly and there you have it lol,

I’m entering this into the following challenges,

Just Magnolia~ Jane’s fab Sketch,    Fussy and Fancy Challenge~ Easter,   Stampin for the Weekend~ Easter,    Crafty Calendar Challenge~ Flower Power,   Raise the Bar~ April Fool:( I don’t usually make my own flowers)   Paper play Challenge~ Easter,   Charisma Cards~ Spring has Sprung,   Cute Card Thursday~~ Dimension,   Papercutz Challenge~ Easter,



I quite like the flowers using this die and will probably do it again, it’s a bit fiddly but then what's new lol,

It’s going quite dark now may be the snow is on it’s way lol, thanks for looking, hugs Liz xx

New Beginnings,

Hi Peeps, I’m back twice in the same day, unheard of for me lol, I so enjoyed making my last card I thought I’d do another using the same glass stamp, this time I’ve stamped it using Dew Drops Moonlight White Brilliance ink, then on the back of the vellum I coloured the masked glass stamp using my Copics,it probably won’t look so good as I find you can never photo Vellum and see the colours properly they always look washed out where as in RL it is just subtle lol, no honestly lol,


I’ve also used some gorgeous lace that I got from a craft show a little while back, I love this so haven’t used it before, you know what it’s like you never want to cut into something you like, as in your favourite paper etc, the pearl string is from Hobby Craft, the flowers and pearl hearts are from stash, I’ve used stickles on the bows of the glasses which is giving off a lovely sparkle, I know just looks like a dirty mess on the photo, he he

the next picture I have altered the colours so you can see the sparkle but they really are not that dark in colour, subtle remember lol,

P1010811I’m entering this  into Die cut dreams challenge which is New Beginnings, I don’t think it fits any other that I know of, trust me to be in the mood for something that’s not in the challenges lol, if you looked at my last creation thanks for coming back to visit me again so soon, it’s lovely to hear from you and I will get back to you soon, as I’ve not mastered blogging and making a card at the same time, any body sussed that one out yet ???? lol, 

All for now, thanks for looking and leaving your lovely comments, hugs Liz xx

Wedding Anniversary

Hi peeps, hope you’ve all had a nice weekend, I’ve had one of those were you want to make cards and life gets in the way lol,  was going to craft on Friday then my hubby said I’ve booked the day off work so that was the end of that, then Saturday and Sunday he just had to find jobs that needed my input, very distracting so I completely lost my mojo and gave uo in the end lol,

My pearl wedding Anniversary is coming up in May and I know I’m early making this card, but I was just in the mood today and thought right get it done and he’s at work so no chance of him walking in and seeing it, I’m entering this into Magnolia Down Under which is using the sketch I have based my card on,


Both the heart and the glasses are Magnolia images which I have coloured using Distress inks, highlighted with star dust and crystal stickles, I distressed the edges of my papers then machine sewed the edges, the gorgeous paper is Basic Grey Wisteria , Iv’e added a few pearls for the occasion but didn’t go over board as I don’t think hubby would appreciate lots of flowers lol,the tops of the heart and the edges of the glasses  have a slight bit of gold pigment ink on them,and I have masked the glass stamp to make two and raised them on foam pads, I’m quite pleased with the result all I’ll have to do know is hide it till later, then remember were I’ve put it lol,

All for now, hope it’s nice were you are it’s raining bucket loads here lol, thanks for looking,  hugs Liz xx

What Another Tilda,

Hi Peeps, as I said last time I posted which was only last night I’d lost my mojo, well it seems to have come back ok as I couldn’t wait to make another card today lol, I couldn’t resist buying this Tilda image as one of my local shops has started selling Magnolias, and well I had to show them some loyalty didn’t I he he, she’s coloured in copics, with glittered wings and I've sat her on the large size Nestie, the Sentiment is Magnolia too,  papers are from Daisy and Dandelion from the Range and Wild Rose Studio from another local craft shop, I had thought of sitting her on the Magnolia watering can which I thought I had, only to find out I haven’t, so did a bit of cursing to myself lol,

A Birthday card,

Hi Peeps, hope you’ve all had a lovely Mothers Day, my daughter made a lovely tea for us, no washing up either, lovely!!!

I’d completely lost my mojo  this last few day’s I just couldn’t put any thing together that I liked so I thought I’d never craft again, so when I got the inspiration this afternoon I thought I’d better make a card in case it takes off again lol,

Here’s the challenges, Magnolia Down Under~ Birthday Card,…Just Magnolia~ Bev’s lovely Sketch,…Papercutz~ Anything goes,… Crafty Calendar Challenge~Flower Power,Alphabet Challenge~ T is for Tag,


Tilda is coloured with Distress Inks, the background is distressed with vintage photo then I stamped a Magnolia flourish in Adirondack Latte over the corners, used the same flourish for my BP , Distressed the edges of my main image and papers then went over with vintage photo, the flowers are from stash, the shiny shred fibres are from the Range, and they are lovely but so difficult to handle lol, tags are a small punch but it has no name on so I don’t know who’s, papers were a freebie from some craft mag ages ago,

So I hope you all enjoy your night, hugs Liz xx
