Big Birthday Wishes - DTDF

Hello there, my card for the DTDF Blog today uses the MFT Big Birthday Wishes stamp set. Isn't she fab! The set comes with a few sentiments and I love the fonts with these. I have stamped her and coloured with Copics, adding a little Spica to the balloons, and mounted to the base with 3D foam pads. The base is made from two papers from the Echo Park Sweet Day Collection. I have cut an MFT Die-namics File Tab and stamped the greeting on this before popping it behind the image. The Doodlebug button has been added using Divine Twine.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you are all well. Have a lovely day!

Anniversary Birds

Hello there, for my card today I have used the very cute birds from the Paired Up set by Clearly Besotted Stamps, I have also used the With A Flourish Set for them to perch on. I have used my neglected Stampin' Up! inks for this card and I do like the colour combo I have to say! I have added a little Spica to the hearts. I have taken inspiration for this card from this beautiful card by Catherine Pooler that I came accross on Pinterest.


Goodness me it is so dark and gloomy here in Surrey today! I hope it starts brightening up soon!

Fairytale Flowers - DTDF Challenge

Hello there, here is my card I have made for latest Die-Ing With A Challenge. The base is made from Bazzill Kraft CS with the two bottom corners rounded. I have then cut three MDT Die-namics Hexagon stax dies from Echo park Sweet Day paper and added these to the base. I have taken the Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork die and cut this from another sheet from the same EP collection and added on top of the hexagons. I have then stamped the sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Furry Freinds set on one of the hexagons. The Prima Fairytale Flowers have been added and then the card has been finsihed off by adding a little butterfly cut from the Memory Box Butterfly Border die.


Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you are all happy and healthy

Homespun Hearts - DTDF

Happy Valentine's Day! Being single at the moment I won't be celebrating the day but I am sure I could send myself a little box of chocolates ;0) Today I have a card I have made for the DTDF Blog. I have used the MFT Homespun Hearts Stamp set and the co-ordinating dies to make this cute card. I have stamped the 'Happy Valentine's Day' sentiment from the set on the inside.


Thank you for visiting me today, have a lovely day!

Birthday Monkey

I came accross this image by Dustin Pike and thought it was great for those difficult to make male cards. I have kept the image quite large and coloured with Copics as usual.


Have a great day and try and stay warm! It is freezing here in Surrey at the moment!

Stampin' Up! Haul

So I made a little *ahem* large order from Stampin' Up! this month. I tend to make larger orders from SU that way I get the hostess benifits. Also, at the moment SU are holding Sale-a-bration which means even more free goodies. My demonstrator is Julie Kettlewell and she is so great at keeping me up to date with all the new products and is a pleasure to deal with when ordering.
Here is the video:
So as you can see, quite a few products but I got a lot for free too. I am now off to put them all away and then hopefully have some time to play.
I now have a Facebook page which is HERE. I hope that you might 'like' it so that you recieve regular updates, photo, videos etc. Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Stay warm!

Flutterby Dreams

Really minimalist card from me today. I have used the Clearly Besotted Stamps Flutterby Dreams set and stamped the three butterflies in a row with Memento Elderberry ink. Since I have kept the design so simple I have used pearlescent CS for the base to give it that something extra.


+ Pearlescent CS from stash

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope you are all happy and healthy!

Milton With Daisy - DTDF

Hello there, for my card for the DTDF Blog today I have used the cute Milton With Daisy stamp. I think you could use him for so many occasions but today I have used him for a Birthday card. The base is made from MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up papers mounted with Bazzill Kraft CS and wrapped with Divine Twine. Milton has been stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copics. I have cut him out with a MFT Die-namics Circle Stax die and then stamped another of the daisy, cut this out and popped up on 3D foam pads over the top. The sentiment is from the CC Designs Amy R Birthday Sentiments set {currently not in stock at DTDF but you could always ask Tracy nicely if she can get it for you!}


I just wanted to take a moment to speak to you about my product links. A little while ago someone mentioned that they didn't work. If a particular product doesn't direct you when you click on it it is because the shop has either moved the page or they no longer sell that product. I have a lot of products linked up and unfortunately I am not able to check them all everytime I link. I do sincerely apologise for this.
Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
