A little Latte!

Supplies:  Funny Coffee Volume 1 - Skipping Stones Design,
 pp - Persnickety by Lilybee design, wine bottle die - pti, 
kraft card blank - docrafts, black tuxedo ink - memento, 
machine stitching, scor-pal, and tombow roller adhesive.

You know what I would LOVE to add to this card - enamel dots!
Just feel that they would be the finishing touch!  Can't add sequins to every card - although I could be sorely tempted! LOL!.

No enamel dots in my LSS - double checked today - the craze hasn't quite reached Ireland yet.  I did buy a Maggie Holmes Class Kit last week and I know there are enamel dots in that... can't wait for those to arrive.

I scored the kraft cardstock coffee sleeve after stamping and cutting - a little visible in the photo!.

Thanks for peeking - hope you have a wonderful weekend.

A flowery birthday!

Supplies:  pp and flowers from Watercolours Digital kit by Jen Martakis
Ribbon from MemrieMare on Etsy, white sequins, glossy 
accents, printer, computer generated sentiment, aqua textured
cardstock - Papermania, font - scrubble, machine stitching.

Sorry about the poor photo quality - it's difficult here at the moment!  It's May but feels like November and the sun is not co-operating.  It is still very cool - where is our Spring?

I went through my stash of digital kits saved on my computer and decided to get crafting with some of them again.  It's so easy to have lots of amazing kits filed away neatly on your computer and forget about them - right?

This kit is by Jen Martakis and it's called "Watercolours".  I used the flower on top of the patterned paper from the kit and added a sentiment and then printed.  Trimmed, matted on aqua textured cardstock and added machine stitching (of course!).

I tied the ribbon and adhered to the card using glossy accents and then also added the sequins with glossy accents to make sure they won't budge!.

Happy Birthday!

Supplies: Live Simply pp - Simple Stories, sentiment - 
Sticker by SRM Press, kraft cardstock - Canson,
white sequins - Gutermann, ribbon - American Crafts, 
Flower from stash, fimo button - made by me!, pop dots, 
Scor-pal, glossy accents, embroidery floss and roller adhesive.

So I just love this paper by Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss and decided to make it the focal point of this card.  I added an sticker sentiment by SRM and scattered sequins (had to get in on the craze right!).
I scored the cardstock using my trusty Scor-pal and adhered the panel with dimensional adhesive. 

Thanks for peeking - hope you had a great weekend.

For the Dads!

Supplies: Green Washi Tape - Prima Marketing,  
black tuxedo ink - memento, sentiment from Man of the Hour 
stamp set - Waltzingmouse Stamps, Glasses - spectacle stamp set
Sweet Stamp Shop, glossy accents, black sharpie, kraft knife/
 scissors and pop dots.

This one is a quick and easy card for the Dad in your life!

I stamped the spectacles, fussy cut them - then went over them with a black sharpie and added glossy accents on top!

I had them sitting on my craft table ready for use and didn't know what I would do with them.  Then my order arrived from Waltzingmouse Stamps and I knew I had to use the sentiment with them - hey presto - card born!
