Little Loving Ladybirds

Afternoon All. Was going to post this a few hours ago but after the School run I was just so worn out, at least it’s the last one until after half term (hurrah!). I just wanted to share a quick card with you. It’s the first time I’ve been in the craft room for a while, apart from a bit of lazy sat on the sofa colouring I just haven’t felt up to it. So nothing complicated, just a little card inspired by the challenge at Less is More and this cute little ladybird from a Sarah Hurley Stamp set.

There is only one ladybird so I reverse stamped it using a brayer first (the right one) and then lined up the second actual stamp next. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set . And the background is the Crackle Background stamp also from Sarah Hurley.

Supplies:

  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers
  • Card: Neenah Solar White
  • Stamps: Crackle Background Stamp and ‘Picnic in the Park’ Stamp set by Sarah Hurley from Crafty Impressions
  • Ink: Memento ‘Tuxedo Black’ and ‘Ladybug’ Inkpads
  • Embellishments: Wooden Heart

Rosalie with Roses

Hope everyone is well. We have had a nasty bug doing the rounds here. The children have both had nasty coughs and now they have kindly passed it onto me…..well they do say a problem shared…lol!

I thought I would try out for the CC Designs DT Call. I’m cutting it a bit fine but what with all the coughing it has taken me so much longer than normal to make a card. Plus a marker pen is quite a dangerous weapon in the middle of a coughing fit!

Here is my card using an old CC Designs Digi Stamp called Rosalie with Roses:

I love to have super cute birthday cards in my stash ready for friends birthdays, so that’s what I have made. I’ve used some Papermania papers that I have had in my stash for quite a while, and I thought the blue would look lovely matted on some deep red card.

Chloe with Reindeer

Quick Edit: Mr Blogger has been naughty and didn’t post this Morning when he should have!

Morning All. I’ve been a little unwell again recently so haven’t really been into the craft room. I have mainly been resting up and catching up on some TV programmes…I’m enjoying ‘Cilla’ at the moment but I’ve quite a few other series on the Tivo box ready to watch!

Here is a recent Christmas make using Chloe with Reindeer:  

Another quick simple card for my Christmas stash.

Christmas Eve Chloe

Morning All. Hope everyone is well?

I’m sharing a card over on the Gems of Inspiration blog today and my card making is  definitely in full swing Christmas mode. This is a very flat (ideal for posting) Christmas card using Christmas Eve Chloe:

This card uses one of my favourite colour combinations of red and turquoise.

Not sure about you but I have a kind of tier system when it comes to my Christmas card making. Heavily embellished and cards I put a lot of time and love into go to close family and loved ones (that I can hand deliver to), simple coloured cards (like the above) go to special friends and relatives that I mail to and lastly for everyone else I make some simple, quick stamped cards.
