May Your Birthday Wishes Sparkle

Thanks for visiting...

It's been a tough week, saying goodbye to my beautiful Grandmother. 
But I needed a birthday card and had a go at split stamping for the new anything goes challenge on the blog today...
The stamping platform really comes into it's own for techniques like this, I first stamped the Peony & Bud in clear embossing ink removed panel applied wow embossing powder and then stamped again for the back layer in black ink. I also used the Pop dots to add a little more interest.
The panel was a blend of saltwater taffy, seedless preserves and chipped sapphire distress oxides.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on acetate, I adhered it to the top of the panel and used a little clear dimensional adhesive so it's floats for a little shadow play.

Follow Your Dreams ~ Boundless Art Journal

Thanks for visiting...

I've been busy in my craft area for the new anything goes challenge on the blog today...
so, I treated myself to Paula Pascual fabulous boundless journal dies and decided to create a portrait page in my new art journal. What a clever concept, I love that I can add and mix up the pages, this is a w.i.p journal and I hope to add many more paperbabe portraits.
I so enjoyed putting my dinky portrait together using the 3/4 view female face stamps I opted for the blank version so I could add her lashes.
Along with the dinky hands stamp set and the coordinating template really helped for masking her elegant hand pose.
Then her pink curly crown was created using the fun
 Willow Jpad hair template.
Here's the copics colours I used as I didn't photograph them:
Skin; E11, 13, 33, 39, R32 Eyes; E97, 70, B60
Hair; R21, 37, 43, 89 Top; BG11, 70, 72, 75

and I would love to enter my project to these wonderful challenges too...

Dream in a Field of Sunflowers

Thanks for visiting...

I've been busy in my craft area for the new anything goes challenge on the blog today...
I created an easel card because I really wanted my girl to look like she was standing in a field of sunflowers.
I've used the dies and stamps from Jpad portrait Head along with the wonderful jpad hands and the torso. Dressed in a patterned t-shirt using this template and this hair, I stamped the sentiment from the Flourish and Grow set.

So, when I saw the spellbinders mini blooms and sprigs, I just had to have them I have thousands of ideas and then it occurred to me they could look like sunflowers if used with the centres from be bold blooms set. I created a hinge with acetate, hoping it wouldn't distract from the flowers stalks too much.
Here's the copics colours I used as I forgot to photograph them:
Skin; R000, 00, 02, YR000, RV91, BV20, 25, B60, E04, 70, V12
Hair; RV04, 09, 14, 19, 69, R35
Background Distress inks; salty ocean, blueprint sketch


and I would love to enter my project to these wonderful challenges too...

Happy Birthday ~ Dad

Thanks for visiting...
I hope you enjoyed a lovely Bank holiday ♥ our week was busy with May fair, and I just got the chance to get into my craft area for the new anything goes challenge on the blog today...
I created a masculine card using the wonderfully muted tones of the Vintage doll patterned papers, along with the Birthday Wishes stamp set.
 The animal print patterned paper can be embellished with the same stamp image in this die set as they are the same scale, great for adding a metallic effect with embossing powder.
The DAD sentiment was such a fun element to create, I thought I would try die cutting some frosted acetate to get a floating look and I've added some patterned papers to the letters only. To get the added shadow I've die cut the same letters in adhesive black foam and only applied it behind the paper letters to achieve a neat dimensional look.

and I would love to enter my project to these wonderful challenges too...

Flourish and Grow ~ One Layer Card

Thanks for visiting...

I hope you enjoyed a lovely Easter ♥ ours was shadowed by covid, but we're all clear now Yay! and I got the chance to get into my craft area for the new anything goes challenge on the blog today...
I created a one layer card, I used the Flourishing hair stamp set along with the wonderful 3/4 view left dinky, I added a few extra curls and shaded her facial features with a little black pencil.
I got to use my newest distress inks, salvaged patina, rustic wilderness, prize ribbon with hints of saltwater taffy too.
and used the Flourish and Grow and Dinky sugar skulls for extra interest in the background.
