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.

All Dressed Up Mum

 
HI there, we have a free ADU image  for you over at kit and clowder this weekend, just follow the on screen instructions, It is a Mother's Day card , but I am short of Easter cards so I removed the sentiment and replaced it with an Easter one.
I coloured it with copics and used Pretty Pink papers from The Works.

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.
