Herd you had a birthday


Well it's time for another card.
My son had a birthday party to go to so I thought I'd better make a card.

As soon as I saw these images on cards I knew I had to buy them.
They are cute and I love the puns in the set.

Here's the card

I used card from my stash and inked the sky with distress ink.
I coloured the cows in with my prismas.
Everything else is by MFT
The grass die is fab has it comes with two different lengths.
The fence is cute and it also comes with a thin wiggly line.
Just be careful with this one as it's so thin you may misplace it.
The cows are part of a set that has a horse, cow, pig and so on.

I hope you like this card.


I'm entering this into the Handmade Bliss monthly challenge.

Items used

Tim Holtz distress ink Tumbled Glass
Prisma pencils
MFT - Birdie Brown the whole herd stamps
         Die-Namics grassy edges
         Die-namics rolling hills

Another Birthday Card


Well today I'm showing you a birthday card made for a friend.
It's a bright cheerful card.

I used a couple of different stamp sets for this.
The chicken wire background stamp is by MFT.
The hexagonals are by Stampin Up
I used the stampin up punch to punch the hexagonals out.
The Happy Birthday is a die but I can't remember who it's made by.
I used the Hero Arts Ombre ink for the background.
The hexagonals were stamped using the new Ranger dye inks and the 
Lawn Fawn dye inks.

Hope you like it.

A Friends Birthday Gift


I have another project I made recently for a friends birthday to show you.

First I'll show you the card I made

The stamps are Paper Smooches Chubby Chums.
I coloured them with my Prisma pencils.
I used MFT horizontal stitched strips.
Paper is from my stash as is the ribbon.

I also decided to make a tag for Sandra.
She is a big Tim Holtz fan (who isn't hehe)
So I decided that it would have lots of Tim Holtz bits on it.

Everything on the tag is from the Tim Holtz range.
I had to colour the Crazy Birds for her as I know she loves them.
I used the Prima watercolor pencils for the birds.

I'm quite pleased at the moment as I have a lot of stash that I haven't used yet
like stamps and dies. I'm determined to use every stamp and die
at least once. Quite a challenge but with the last few things I've made I've
used a few stamps and dies.
You'll see the bits I've made as I post them.

A challenge accepted


Well the crafting bug has certainly returned. Woohoo!
My friend Kay and I decided that we would both alter a tag and swap it once we'd altered it. 
It was a wooden tag found in the pound shop. 

I'm afraid I forgot to take a before photo. 

So here is mine that I sent to Kay.

I used some plain red card stock I had and stamped it with Altenew Hennah Elements.
The girl is one of the Prima dolls.
I then added some Tim Holtz embellishments and some flowers.

It was fun to make.
I'll post at a later date the tag Kay makes for me.

Hope you like it.
