Easter Cards #3

Hope you are not getting bored of my Easter cards!  I do like Easter- an excuse for cute images and/or bright colours!
These two use DigiStamp Boutique images from the Happy Easter set.

Easter cards #2

These Easter cards were made from two 2016 DigiStamp Boutique releases- Sketchy Bunny
 and Quacky Easter
The papers were some Me-To-You Easter ones that I bought last year too.

Easter cards #1

A batch of Easter cards to share today.  All these use DigiStamp Boutique images and papers from Tiger.
 A cutie that was part of a chicklets Easter set a couple of years ago.
 Can't beat a Chibby the duck image at Easter, can you?
And finally a spring chicks image released this year.

I'm a great fan of Instagram for posting craft photos and sharing ideas and inspiration.  DigiStamp Boutique released a camera set with some really trendy sentiments.  I thought the 'Instagram' frame just had to be combined with a newly released girly set for a fairly CAS birthday card.

 And then I played with the sketchy chicks set to make a second 'everyday' card...

Sketch Saturday #459

This week the Sketch Saturday challenge was lucky enough to be sponsored by Star Stampz.  I love their girl images.  Super sweet and almost fantasy style.  One lucky winner will get 3 free digi stamps.
 I used 'Santa's Letter' on my card.
Hope you are inspired to play along this week.

To Someone Special

.. At Christmas.  I know it is the wrong time of year for Christmas, but always good to make a few early...
Not sure I got a chance to use this DigiStamp Boutique image in 2016 so it is good to print it now :-)

Happy Easter Chubby

I love Chubby the duck by DigiStamp Boutique (or is he a cute chick, I'm not sure...?).  Making quite a stack of Easter cards this year.  Even did some sewing on this one to make a 'patchwork' backing from lots of little ends of paper.

Easter Duo

DigiStamp Boutique recently released a few new images including two Easter-themed ones.  I know I have loads of Easter images already, but I couldn't resist.  They are so cute.  Made two simple cards for starters (I'm sure they will be out again).

Sending Hugs

I made this 'hugs' themed card using a Star Stampz image- 'My Sweet Sunflower'.  I love sunflowers (in fact any yellow flower!)

Sketch Saturday #457

This week's Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by M. Medel Illustrations, an Etsy shop which sells digi-stamps and colouring pages.  I hadn't seen any of their work before, but really like it.  Definitely worth a visit.  
One lucky winner gets 2 free images from the challenge.  I used 'Christmas Singing Bear' on my card.
Hope you are inspired to join in this week x

Happy Birthday Helen!

Not sure if Helen looks at my blog but hopefully she will be opening this card today anyway.  Happy 60th :-)
 The image is a Truffle the bear one from Digistamp Boutique and I went to town with the decorations!  Also made a little felt badge/pin:

Good Luck...

...or did I make this card for St Patrick's Day?  I guess it would do for either.

Another Chubby the Duck image from DigiStamp Boutique.  How cute is he?

Sending More Hugs

Can you ever send too many hugs?  I don't think so.  These are the other two cards I made as an order.  Quite different colour schemes (to each other and to the browns/beiges of the first two cards).  I'm hoping they go down just as well.

Sending Hugs

I got a request from a customer at Bentley Heath Country Market for some blank cards with 'Hugs' on the front so I set too and made four.  These are the first two using images that I had stamped up in a box for a rainy day (or just to be lovingly stroked now and again).
 I even managed to break open a new paper stack and to celebrate I got the sewing machine out to add some real (rather than the usual faux) stitching.

Thursday, 9 March 2017


Browsing through the DigiStamp Boutique catalogue the other night I found this chicken set that I didn't have before.  That was quickly rectified and I printed off two images to make a couple of cards almost immediately.

All I want for Christmas...

I know it is only the 1st of March but I am actually late in making this card rather than early for next year!
The image is from DigiStamp Boutique.

I got the Jumptastic digi set from DigiStamp Boutique a while ago but this was the first chance I had to use it.  So fun and cute :-)

 This is my card using Mia.

Easter Cards

Getting back into the swing of things at home and of course that means I just HAD to get my card making stuff out ;-)
Easter is the next 'event' in the year I tend to make cards for (I don't do 'Mother's Day' on Mum's request) so I printed off some super cute DigiStamp Boutique images that I bought last year and didn't get a chance to use.

Mini Book

It has been a few months since I have been able to do much mixed media and paper crafting.  Plenty of crochet and other craft has been done in the meantime though ;-)
A friend and I said we would do a virtual half term craftathon.  We decided on a lollystick theme and I went with a mini book and used some Clearly Besotted Stamps that were waiting in the packets to get inky.

Thankyou Clare.  Loved doing this :-)
