Hedgehog Flower

Hi there, it's time for the New release over at All dressed up stamps and I got to play with Hedgehog flower and I loved every minute of it. I coloured with copics, made my own background paper with an Imagination Crafts stencil called Leaf Swirl and Distress ink Shabby Shutters, the leaves and Thanks are Die cuts. I needed a thank you card for one of my lovely customers, I took her new cushions back for her and her room is full of crochet, she had made scatter cushions, doilies, antimacassars , they were so beautiful and delicate. Before lockdown I taught myself to crochet using YouTube and now I'm addicted, every spare minute I get I have a hook in my hand, well after I had finished swooning over my customers work, a few days later a parcel arrived with two crochet pattern books in, they are amazing so I am now in the process of making a mandala wall hanging for our new log cabin, I will post some pictures when it is eventually done. So this is a Thank you card for my customer.

Autumn Wreath


 
It's time for a new challenge on the Facebook All Dressed Up page and the theme for this month is 2AUTUMN AND/OR halloween2
I created my card using an  All Dressed Up image called Autumn wreath  that I coloured with copics, I then die cut my wreath using watercolour card and added a hint of paint to the tips.
It is certainly Autumnal here today, we have so much leaf litter blowing round the garden and it feels cold, it's the first time I have worn a wooly jumper in months.

Hippie Chick

 Hi there, it's time for a new challenge on ADU facebook groupand this months theme is

"Winged Things"

What a fun theme, I chose Hippie Chick to play with that I coloured with copics and a glitter pen, Background paper is Firefly collection from Prima, and a little chip it sentiment.
We have had a bank holiday in the UK this weekend and boy did we need that extra day, on Saturday we went to visit my youngest son and his family, they have just moved into a new house and we went to give it a once over, it is a gorgeous loads more room than they had before and just a 5 min walk to their school. On Sunday went to see my oldest son and his family as it was my youngest Grandsons third birthday, we had an indoor picnic, we bought him a Dinosaur dress up costume that roars and his eyes flash red, it went down a storm. Then today Monday we finally got the roof on the garden studio we are building in the garden, so at least it is now water tight in case it rains. I will be pleased to get back to work for a rest.

Duck Swim

Hi there, it's that time again, and this is one of my faves, the theme this month is 
" BE SQUARE"
As you have probably guessed by now I love my square cards, I do try occasionally to do a different shape, in fact a couple of weeks ago I ordered myself some DL dies, but I haven't plucked up courage to use them yet, I see everyone else's beautiful cards but when I sit in my craftroom I get no inspiration, guess a visit to pinterest is called for.
Well I have used all dressed up's new one called duck swim that I coloured with copics, and used Distress ink Salty Ocean, Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, Evergreen Bough and Mermaid Lagoon for the background.

Father and Daughter

 Hiya, I was very honored to be asked to make two cards.
A friend in the village had not had contact with his daughter for over twenty years, and before lockdown they managed to reunite.
His lovely wife asked me to make them a card each, so that when the cards were placed side by side they made one picture, and this is what I came up with.



I  used Distress inks for the background and some Clarity stamps I've had for years for the foliage, the trees, deer and birds were cut out of black card with some dies, the stag is four layers deep as I wanted him to stand out a bit.


The customer loved them, she wrote her own messages inside.

Pool Party

Hi there it's time for some new releases at All Dressed Up etsy shop and I got to play with Pool party, isn't she adorable with her polka dot bikini and pineapple sun glasses. There is two more to look at also.
I coloured her with copics used Glossy Accents on her glasses, really old HOTP paper (I think) and some text strips. The weather is certainly not Pool Party weather here, we've had rain for a full week, I popped to see my Dad this morning (he's in my bubble) and the roads were treacherous

Party girl

 

Hiya, can you believe we are in May already, and I'm not sure where you live but it's freezing here, it's forecast rain for the next 7 days, not what you need for a bank holiday weekend.
When I was a child and it was raining my Mum used to say "that's it colouring book weather, get your pens out" so I might just take her word for it. LOL
There is a new challenge on the ADU facebook page and the theme is Girly girls, I have used one of the three little party girls coloured with copics and Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper, the puffy text is from Rosie's Studio and the flowers from stash.

Country girl

 Hi there, wow how quick the weather has changed, mini heatwave last week , snow this week, crazy!
One thing that hasn't changed is just how talented Wendy at All Dressed Up stamps is. It is new release day and we have three fantastic images Dog-walkerBirthday-girl and the one I got to play with Country-girl, they are all awesome. I coloured mine with copics, used Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper, Rosie's Studio Briar wood puffy mini phrases and I  think the cloud die was XCut.

Stephy Aurora wings Unicorn sprite

 Hi there, it seems ages since I used an Aurora Wings image, it was my granddaughter Stephy's 5th Birthday this week and she absolutely adores unicorns, so this image Unicorn Sprite is just perfect.
The Covid restrictions have lifted here and we were able to see them, (the first time since last August) and deliver her birthday gifts, we also took there Christmas gifts as well, plus the Easter rabbit came, when we went for a walk she said it was the best Easter Ever.
I coloured with copics and made a shaker card back ground, the letters are a plain white chipboard that i coloured in, I thought it would make a nice picture for her bedroom.

Best Mummy from ADU

 Hi there, it's new release day at All dressed up stamps and I got to play with Best Mummy a wonderful image, you could always swap the sentiment in the middle of the rosette and use it for any occasion, so well worth popping this one in your basket.

I have coloured it with copics, Molotow white pen and Liquid Pearls in Gold pearl, I used some paper from my scrap bin but I have a feeling it's a download from a company called Pink Petticoat.

Hi there, well January soon came and went again, I can't believe we are into February already, we have been really lucky and managed to avoid the snow and floods, there is something to be said about living in the salty sea air.

Ski Season

 Hi there, well Autumn has certainly arrived, there's piles of golden leaves everywhere on our daily walk now, such beautiful colours, and the weather has definitely changed very dark and damp.
But on a lighter note we have a wonderful challenge for you on Facebook this month. How about kick starting your Christmas cards if you haven't already, the theme is
"Feeling Christmassy"
I really wanted to have most of my cards done by now as I'm moving my craft room, what an upheaval I never knew I had so much stuff. Hubby has always teased me about reinforcing the floor but I think he's right, I've filled the work skip already and I've not even started properly. Oh well it will be so much better once it's finished if I ever get it done.
This card is using Ski Season that I coloured with copics,  I covered the image with a sheet of  double sided sticky , then rubbed in Twinklets Diamond Dust, very carefully as its finely ground glass you could use a fine clear glitter if you have one. Added a few pom poms and a glittered chipboard snowflake.

Sharing at Christmas

Hiya, it's time for a new challenge on the ADU Facebook page and the theme for this month is
"HOT or COLD colours"
So as you can guess I chose the Cold colours as I'm still on a mission to get some Christmas cards done before Christmas this year, ha ha 
The image I chose is Sharing at Christmas which you can get from the Etsy shop, I coloured with copics, the paper is from my stash, glitter card from B&M pom pom's poundland and the snow globe die cut was a freebie on last years magazine.
Colours I used are
B0000,000,00,
V20,22,25,
YR14,R00,
C00,2,3,5,
I would like to enter this in the following;

Hugs Debra
