LOTV trio

Here are a couple of images that i coloured from LOTV trio.
I did these a few months back but had problems with my Blog.
I hope you like them.


Micely does it

Its been quite a while since my last post.....Ive been a bit of a globe trotter of late.....
Manchester has been a second home for the past few months with my beautiful daughter Natalie, so no cards being made.
This is a little image i downloaded from http://www.disdigistamps.com/
they are a bit pricey i think for a digi download but cute.
I used my Copics to colour them.
here is my take on these little cuties.

Today i did a baby card for a GIRL.
This image was a download from an american site, i thought the image was cute, but i have to say expensive at $3 per download.
anyway it was so cute i had to have it anyway.
Im hoping to do a craft fair so ive been busy making lots of cards.

                                                      I used my copic pens for this one
                                        I did a bit of heat embossing....not done any for ages.

Back to one of my most favourite stamps by LOTV.
Fairies on tiptoe must be the most famous of all the LOTV stamps.
lots of sparkle and soft tones.

Bee Happy

Today i thought i would share a card that i made using one of the new Whimsy stamps.
I thought it was a bit too much at first, but after looking at it for the past few days, it seems to have toned down.....perhaps it's just me.....

I was asked to make a card for an Indian lady who dresses in traditional costume.

not an easy ask, but i remembered that i still had a few of my Magnolia Tilda stamps.

and lo and behold i found Indian Tilda.

She is just so sweet.

I coloured her in what i thought was colours that i see Indian people wearing on a day to day basis.

my lovely customer was delighted.

Flapper girl

Well i don't usually use images from card kits, but this gorgous 1920's flapper girl from Kanban just screamed "me me me "
I think it came in a kit i purchased some years ago, and put in a drawer.
Iv'e been having a clear out of stuff i never use (Which goes to my friends after school club for the kids) so it is put to good use and the kids love it.
anyways here is my flapper girl card.
The black flowers have been sprayed with my Copic ABS (Air brush system) which i think you all know by now I love to bits.
The foiled backing card is just lush...I added some swarovski crystals to her earing and head dress.
The flowers are from WOC (Wild Orchid Crafts) and the silver leafs are from eBay.

Dark Horse

I am so pleased that so many people like my lovely Whimsy Unicorn  which by the way is called "Enchanted Hollow" from Dies to die for I love their website and fab service. 
so after i made the first Unicorn card and sold it, i was asked to make 2 more, but one with a more dark and mysterious look.
so here is my attempt at this.
The unicorn still had to be magical and beautiful.
I added some little tiny diamontes to the mane and tail just to make it stand out a little more against the deep florals.
The butterflies are metal ones that i coloured with my copic Air spray system (I Just love it) 
I also matched the background again using my air spray.
I hope you like it.

I was getting a bit bored with the pastel pretty cards and decided to do something a little more Vintage and shabby and deep.
I love using the book pages as a backing, it adds a bit of drama.
I used this wonderful clock from WOC as it was perfect for the look i wanted and mounted it onto some cork.
sometimes you have to just do something different.....
the inside compliments the front.
This card is for sale on my website

New whimsy stamp

Hi everyone.
I have been really busy getting aquainted with my new Copic pens and my new ABS
Oh boy!  are they different to my Promarkers.
I have watched so many tutorials on blending and what numbers go with what and how to get the best out of my ABS...I forgot why i bought them and to enjoy them.
anyway finally i had the courage to make a card with them.....
Now i know its not perfect, but for my first try i'm quite pleased.
I've also been messing with different types of cardstock to see which one i like best. so i think I will post a little comparison later on.
so here goes......

 I had some bleeding on the back of her dress, but nomatter how hard i tried to blend it out, it wasn't having any of it....the joy of hand made i guess.......

 I hope you like....

Watch the Birdie

This card was so much fun to make.
It took ages to do the tiny flowers, but i think it worked out just fine.
Using a square Doily. gupier lace and that wonderful twinklets on the bird which makes it look like it's frosted.


I love this card, it's so light and fresh and suitable for any age group.
crammed with lovely florals and lace.

Flowers and sentiments

Hi Folks...
Today i decided to make a card using only sentiments and flowers.
I'm waiting for my new Copic pens to arrive so i can have a good play and colour some of my delish stamps.
I think sometimes you can get away with not having a character as the main focus.
hope you like it.
                                         Flowers are from WOC and ebay Dinkybutnice2
                                       The sentiment is  CG that i did in word on parchment
