Such Great Service

Good evening hope you are all well.  I know I have told you all this before but I will say it again, I am so lucky to live next door to Bellaboo.  I placed an order online late yesterday afternoon and Kate delivered it to me yesterday night!  Such great service.  Thank you so much Kate I really appreciate it.  I was very naughty and ordered myself some more Indigo Blu stamps.  I had a little play with some of the stamps today and thought I would share them with you.

This one was created with my New Grand Tour II and I stamps and Tim Holtz faded jeans distressed inks

This one is made using Sewing Mends the Soul stamps and Tim Holtz vintage photo and tattered rose distressed inks.  This isn't a new set but I just love the stamp set.

This card is an 8x8 it uses my new Enjoy Life stamps and Tim Holtz spiced marmalade, mustard seed and black soot distressed inks and some sequin waste.  I got this set as its full of different phrases.

Hope you like them.  Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your evening.  Tracy xxxx

Crop Creations

Hope your weekend is going well everyone.  Today I thought I would share a few cards that I created at the Bellaboo crop on Tuesday.  They all use Tim Holtz distressed inks and my Inkdusters, Inkylicious stamps and Black card. All the cards are 6x6 sizes.

I had to add a bow on this card as I had a little ink on my fingers and marked the card.  Argggggghhhhh annoying.  

I did one like this a few weeks ago that was an 8x8 size and I used a different sentiment.  I got the idea for this one from a demo that Sally from Crafty Salutations.  I just love the fact that everytime I do this I get a very different effect.  I love Inkdusters thank you Inkylicious.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
Thank you for stopping by.

I'm back!!

Hi everyone, I hope that this post finds you all in good health and enjoying the last of the summer sunshine.  I have not long got back from my holidays so haven't really had much time for much crafting.  This is a project that I wanted to do for an Uncle and Aunt who are celebrating their Ruby wedding anniversary this weekend.

I cut my letters out with my Cricut and stamped the red card with a majestix peg star stamp,I then added some glitter glue to bling it up a little (unfortunately you cant really see it all that well on the pictures).  The Happy Anniversary is also covered with glitter glue to.  I hand made the chocolates inside the little bags and stamped the heart on the wrapper then embossed it with white embossing powder.  The stamp is this months freebie from the Craft stamper magazine.  Hope you like my creations.  Have a wonderful weekend all, be back soon.
Thank you for stopping by

Inkdusters are back in action

Hi everyone hope you are all well on this cold wet day, I am trying to get ready for my holiday but its hard to be getting out shorts and sun tops when I am dressed for arctic conditions.  I was really inspired to get my ink dusters and inkylicious stamps out this week after I watched a demo on Crafty Salutations blog which is run by a lady called Sally Holmes.  I just want to say a big thank you to Sally as her demo was so clear and inspiring it spurred me on to have a go myself.  My card is no where as good as Sallys but I was really pleased with my first try with wet inkdusters.  I didnt use the same stamps that Sally did as I dont have them so I used my faithful Gone Fishing Stamps and I used Tim Holtz distressed Inks.  Here is my 1st try with Wet dusters, hope you like it.

My next card is done with dry Ink dusters and the Inkylicious Ikebana stamp set, and again I used Tim Holtz inks.

So a big thank you again Sally. Have a great evening everyone. Thank you for stopping by.  Lets hope the sunshine shows its face again soon.  Bye for now. Tracy xxx

Monster Madness

Hi everyone, hope that you are all well.  I borrowed this wonderful stamp from my friend Kate, I just love it.  I coloured the little chap with my Spectrum Noir pens and tried the blowing technique for the background on the blue and green one (place an old empty biro pen next to the chisel end of the spectrum noir pen and blow through the top of the pen). For the brown and orange one I used distressed stains and literally just splatted the different colours onto the card.
I masked the monster off on both cards so that he looks like he is in front
of the backgrounds.  I edged both cards with fine line markers.  Hope you like them. Thank you for taking time to visit.  Take Care.

Indigo Blu Challenge

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  I thought I would enter this peg into the Indigo Blu challenge this month which is call Shabby Chic.  I painted it with some distressed paint then stamped it with one of the stamps from the Grand Tour 1 set with Versa Fine sepia Ink.  I added feathers, Flowers that I made using the cricut flower shoppe cartridge.  The butterfles were stamped onto acetate.  I added some glitter glue just to make my stamped images pop a little more.  Wish me luck.  Have a wonderful day.

Lots of love n stuff

Bad Blogger

Hi everyone, hope this post finds you all well and enjoying the sunshine.  So sorry for being such a bad blogger, normal problem work! work! work!!!!!!!!  Anyway I have done a little crafting so I have a few cards to show you.  Here they are.

 This was made with a stamp that I got free with the Creativity magazine, I coloured the teddy in with Spectrum Noirs.

This lilli of the valley was coloured in with spectrum noirs added a little sparkles glitter and die cut using my x cut die  I used a pm paper, and edged both items with the spectrum noir pen then added faux stitching with Tim Holtz distressed marker.

I used majestix tapestry stamps for this one and coloured the house with promarkers.  I added glitter and white cosmic shimmer glue to the flowers.  I edged the card with a fine liner and you cant really see it very well but a little doodling around the horse shoe shape.

Thank you for stopping by.
