You lift me up!

Quick card share today.

I dug out the stamp set from the Studio Calico - Cirque Card Kit to stamp the hot air balloon and sentiment and used kraft cardstock for the base.  

Sorry the photos are not great quality at the moment but we have had three storms blow through here - Storms Abigail, Barney and Clodagh and they have done nothing to aid with photo taking!.  More high winds today as Storm Desmond lashes the country but hopefully the wind will ease enough to let young sailors take to the water tomorrow.  The last few weekends have been blown out!

Sequins are from SC and I used PTI dies to cut the clouds.  The Peek a Frame Dies by Mama Elephant make another appearance - I think this stitched rectangle is my favourite die at the moment!.

Thanks so much for peeking.

A fun congratulations card or encouragement card - love the mix of sentiments which is something that I don't normally do!.  
 I can be a little odd about fonts and mixing fonts etc!.

"You did it" - is from WMS set "Kaboom" and "Hooray!" is from Studio Calico - Cirque Card Kit.  I stamped lots of stars in different colour inks from the cirque stamp set too.  The little girl is from Mama Elephant - in my heart stamp set and has matching dies. Patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Santa Express Paper Pack - gotta love when you can use it for non Holiday Cards too.

Thanks so much for peeking.

Shine Bright!

I have been playing around with this set and matching dies since it arrived in the mail from Concord & 9th.  They are a new stamp company and I just love what they are creating.  I used the Peek a Frame by Mama Elephant to created a stitched base and added the bulb using pop dots for added dimension.  Coloured with copics and three layers of glossy accents - very shiny in real life!

Thanks for peeking.

Meet James the Bear!

Meet James the Bear!  I found him in my stash recently and he had never been inked!  He is a Lili of the Valley stamp but I fear no longer in production.
I decided to stamp him on copic friendly paper and get colouring!

I "created" the Merry Christmas sentiment by cutting a sentiment in half!.  It was Merry Chrismtas DEAR - part of the SSS Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.  I see Jennifer McGuire do it on a regular basis but reckoned I would never have the nerve, (well I did! LOL!!).

I added lots of gold stickles to the tinsel and glossy accents to the baubles.

Thanks for peeking.

Happy Birthday!

Quick share of a Birthday Card.

I made this using a Hero Arts Note as my base (comes with matching envelope). The cute little girl and die is from In my Heart by Mama Elephant. Sentiment from this set by Purple Onion Designs.  Splatter stamp very aptly named "Splat that!" from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Stitched die - Peek a Frame by Mama Elephant.  Ink - Viridian by Ranger.
