Muse DT 216

For my card this week for Muse, I made one in a really simple in design but to make it pop a bit I stamped and coloured it some really bright colours and finished with a wink of stella .Almost impossible to see and photograph I know
 !!!!I You will by now know by now, how I love the texture of this card stock and thinks it works especially great with these simple designs
  I find myself drawn to this type of brightly coloured cards just now and can see myself making a batch of these  with different sentiments.
I hope it will inspire you to join in this week with us and can't wait to see what you come up with 😊

Thanks for popping in by for a look

Cupcake inspiration

We had a lovely holiday in Portugal last week (although the mosquitoes loved me a bit toooo much!)
 I have friends who has moved over there in the last year and we were lucky enough to be able to rent the apartment next door to them and even the weather was great .... came back to snow hail sleet and rain!!!!!!

So my card will be on its way to say a huge thank you to Shirley and Chris for making our stay such a great one.
I used the clearly besotted feeling sheepish stamp set,love the punny sentiments.
I also think it fits in perfectly with the Cupcake Inspiration challenge this week,so i will be adding it there.

Thank you for  taking the time to pop over and have a look

Muse DT 212

For  this week's Muse card I have made a very simple card  using Altenew watercolour wonders stamp set with stormy sky distress inks for both panels and and love how this turned out ...
I hope you do too and will inspire you to play along with us again this week!

The sentiment is because  by the time you read this we will be in sunny Portugal for a weeks holiday wahoo! It was one of those spur of the moment decisions and I can't wait a family friend is there and can't wait to have a good old catch up with her!

So thanks for taking the time to look this week if i am a bit slow in commenting please bear with me our apartment in Portugal has WIFI but  I have been warned it can be patchy at times!

Thank you for taking the time to pop in by hope to see you in the gallery! 
P.s I have been using picasa to edit my pictures but not very happy with it anyone got any other ones I could try??Thanks

Muse DT 208

This week I had to make a baby card and I thought it would be perfect for Muse this week because who doesn't need a baby card at sometime?

I used Lawn fawns little bundle for the washing line using my promarkers and zig pens  to colour and Pink petticoat digi gingham paper for the backing .I added wink of stella on the dress sash so it would sparkle in the light and well little girls need a little bit of glitz!

Sorry about the photo isn't closer but I had taken the photos and then delivered the card and meant to crop this a bit more when I unfortunately found I had deleted it off the camera ...me and technology do not mix well ! :)

Very simple I know but hoping it will inspire you too join in with us this week!!

Thanks for popping in for a visit.

When I first saw the code word for CASology my first thought was a landmark birthday and there just happens to be one coming up for the janitor in my old work so decided to make a card for him on his retirement there is no bigger landmark than that!

I stamped the beach image from a wooden cube stamp that I have and I had this deckchair image too so decided to add the two together as Alan and his wife love nothing better then jetting off into the sun! and are looking forward to more holidays in the future.

I heat embossed the images in black EP and with a thin brush I water coloured them in . Stamped my CB sentiment .Made a watercolour wash on a scrap piece of water colour card and mounted my image on that before mounting them both in a stone coloured card ...yes I know in the photo it looks grey!:)

Thank you for taking the time to look !

Muse DT 204


On March the 28th its Mothers day here in the UK and I'm getting mine done early as my mother- in -law will be away for that weekend.

But this card is sooo out of my comfort zone! But this card is also for my mother-in law and she likes  a bit more on her cards and I cant help but notice that only these style of cards get a 'oh this is pretty!' when she opens it :) and I really struggle with them, but it is her day so we will go with it - after all that's what card making is about isn't it? getting it right for the recipient!

 It might have looked better if I hadn't discovered that I had run out of watercolour card so had to use promarkers and I always seem to be heavy handed with them and they don't seem to blend as well so apologies for the colouring...... but I'm sure you can do much better!!! 
I counted the layers if you include the rose and the diecuts and the card base its 7!:) I also used diecuts and a stencil for the brick work behind the rose...though in the photo I know its very hard to see.

But thank you for taking the time to pop in by for a look hope you are inspired to join us over at Muse this week.
