It's twins!!!

Hi! I hope you are having a great week!

My cousin in Spain had twins a few weeks ago, so there was no doubt that I was going to try and make a new baby x 2 card!!! my first card for twins...so excited!




For this card, I looked around for Twin digis or stamps, but there wasn't any that I really liked, so I decided (with the help of Google!) to flip and merge this digi, Spit Happens, from Mo Manning, which I've had for a long time. I'm really happy how it turned out. I also added the babies' initials to their T-shirts!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

Cute spring bunny card

Hi!
I'm back today with a CAS card... I never used to make CAS cards... NEVER! but I've fallen in love with the look of them.. I guess I like both extremes.... very embellished and lots of layers cards or very clean and simple cards....

So, this is the card:


I used the sketch for this week's CAS on Sunday challenge.



The image is a clear stamp I've had for a long time. I'm pretty sure it was a freebie from a magazine a few years ago and it's from Somebunny to Love.
I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image.



Card Recipe

7x5  tent card blank
Patterned paper is a very old one, freebie from magazine a few years ago

A One layer card!!!

Hi!
I hope you've all had a great weekend, with a bit of time  (or a lot!) for crafting!

I was able to squeeze a bit of time (that's it, working until really late at night once the girls are in bed!). My toddler seems to be so full of energy, she doesn't want to sleep early... I haven't got any other option than to craft during the night.. which I don't really mind on the weekend, and I get some peace and quiet!)

Today I bring you another New baby card, which I've made for my friend and neighbour, who had a baby boy last week. It's CAS (I think it's the most CAS card I've ever made!), just one layer and no designer paper! that was a challenge!




So, after a lot of stamping, inking, masking and colouring this is what I ended up with! A few years ago I wouldn't have dreamt to make a CAS card... but lately I'm really giving them a try (although I still like to indulge in layers and lots of embellishment in some of my cards).


For this card I used a clear stamp set that I've had for a long time and it's been sitting in a drawer since.... (together with a lot of more stamps waiting to be inked...). It's the "New Arrival" Forever Friends clear stamp set, I don't remember where I got it from.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.



Card Recipe

 6x6 card blank
"New Arrival" Forever Friends clear stamp set (baby bear and cross stitching stamps)
Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the stamp
Papermania light and dark blue pigment ink 
Sizzix Tim Holtz On the Edge torn notebook die (used to mask the edges of the inked patch)
The Crafter's shop mini template - writing stencil
Postal mark clear stamp from The Works
multi date stamp (from local shop in Spain) - I used it to add the baby's date of birth
"Cute as a button" stamp from Hobbycraft
blue heart button
sequins in different colours



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:




I hope you like my try on a one layer CAS card! If you do, don't forget to leave me some love in the comments and follow me if you are not doing so... Thanks!

Until next time!!!

loving washi tape...

Hi there!

Back today with a new card. Clean and simple this time, with quite a few bits of washi tape here and there... I'm totally addicted to washi tape... I can't leave my local craft shops without buying a few rolls each time! I really have fun playing around with it, but I must hold the record on the amount of times I move it around my card!

Anyway... on to the card



For this card I used one of the new bird images from Bugaboo stamps.
I coloured it with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.



Card Recipe

7x5 card blank
Green checked paper from Recollections Signature special Fabulous girl paper pad
"Torn Notebook" Tim Holtz alterations On the Edge die 
Scrap paper
Different types from washi tape from Dovecraft, The Works  and local shop.

For this card I used a LOTV stamp, which I bought a few years ago, right before my long crafting break and I never had the chance to use.

Stencils and stamping

Hi!
I'm back today with a new card... This time it's a Clean and Simple card, which I find so difficult to make.. But lately I've been drawn to more simpler cards... I still enjoy my layers and embellishments, but now and then I like to make something simpler, which doesn't mean easier!

I decided to make a card without any patterned papers. I bought some stencils the other day and I couldn't wait to use them to create a bit of a background. Nothing too dramatic, but it took me ages!!! I think this background was the fourth try! I've realised I'm so messy when I use inks... it's so difficult to keep the ink only in the places I want it to be... not sure if I'm making any sense, I hope so!


For this card I used the sketch for this week's CAS(E) this sketch challenge





This cute stamp is a new rubber stamp I got for Christmas. It's from Stamping Bella and it's called Tiny Townies Bree Loves Buttercream. The sentiment is part of it too.




Card Recipe

7x5 card blank
purple cardstock
white cardstock
Memento ink in tuxedo black
