♥ Another card for Ribbon girl April challenge ♥

Hi there, hope you are all having a blessed day.  Popping in to share another card that i'm going to enter into Ribbon girl April challenge  I recently bought this super!! cute stamp by Stamping Bella and I think it is totally adorable :)  I have seen a few more of their cute stamps I would like.
I am trying to start building up my copic collection again as I hadn't been colouring for a very long time, but I bought a colouring book and it just reminded me just how much I had missed colouring in my stamped images and how relaxing it is.
This little guy is called "mail chick" and I just used some simple matting and layering with my stitched rectangles.  This set does come with a sentiment which I didn't use on this card, I decided to use a sentiment from Lawn fawn instead

Have a fab weekend ♥

♥ One card for two challenges ♥

Hi there :)  a cute card to share today featuring Lawn fawn chit chat stamps, these are soooo adorable!   Just a very simple layout using my stitched L'il Inkers rectangle dies and MFT stitched circles.  Would you believe this paper is years old!!! found it in my stash, I must have it 8 years (",) ... LOL ... so it's good to have a good rummage through your stash and you will be amazed at the lovely paper you have been hoarding and forgot about ;)

♥ Using up scraps & die cuts ♥

Hi there :)  I made this card a couple of weeks back using up all my bits of scrap paper and just simply having fun die cutting and layering them.  I love how this turned out and I think I am going to get a nice frame and pop it in it to display in my craft room :)

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend ♥

♥ Mother's Day ♥

Hi there, hope is all going well with your day.  I just popped in to share Mother's day cards that I made for both my Mum & Mother in law  I have had this paper pad from Authentique ~ Uncommon collection for "ages" I am being really good using up my stash this year as it does seem such a shame to keep hoarding.
I inlaid the heart (Wplus9) and then layered it up a few times to give some dimension.  I then went on to layer up the Mom die from L'il Inkers and inlaid the centre heart piece.  I also made matching bookmarks to pop inside, haven't photographed them yet, I more than likely will post them on my Instagram.

Have a blessed day ♥

♥ Simon says Stamp ~ anything goes ♥

Hi there ... It's a beautiful day here Northern Ireland :) so my card is very fitting with the little "sun" die cut and "smile" die cut.  Lots of layering going on with this card, everything is layered (",)
I die cut stitched L'il Inkers polaroid frame and the design paper is from Amy Tangerine.  The butterfly is cut using Papertrey card with vellum over it and then I machine stitched the "smile" die and some wink of stella.  the lovely sentiment is from Mama Elephant
This butterfly Memorybox die has to be one of my most used dies.  I got it ages ago on sale for £3 and I just love it! as you can probably tell if you pop by regularly :)
I'm joining in the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week ~ anything goes (using Memorybox products)

♥ Daring Cardmakers ~ Party Animal ♥


Hi there ... hope you are all doing well.  Today's card I love  I finally got round to using my poodle die from Frantic stamper (have had this nearly 2 years!) ... can anyone else relate to this?? (",)
So I die cut it a few times and layered it adding some wink of stella & gold messy thread.
The heart is inlaid and the "thank you" sentiment is from an older Clearly besotted set which I cut apart .... finally learning to stretch my stamps .. LOL
