after all this time? Always....

Hi all

Hope we are all well. Well since its October and the month of Halloween it had to be a Halloween inspired card didnt it. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan so I was excited to post this card. I had a lot of fun making it.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Ally's Angels challenge blog - Anything goes
Alphabet Challenge blog - 'O' One word sentiment
Magnolia Forever Challenge blog - Anything goes with the option of purple
The Official Magnolia Inspiration and Challenge blog - Monochrome
Sweet Stamper Challenge blog- Autumn/ Halloween
Swedish House Crafts- Facebook challenge - Autumn or Spooky

Now this card was made just for a bit of fun. I love the stamps. So why not!

I used an old Tilda stamp of her as a Wizard and I dont think she will ever stop being a fave of mine. I coloured Tilda with Distress inks.

The card shape is a box card made from a die. The papers....oh the papers.... these are from Photo Play and kinda awesome arent they. I found these at The Rubber Buggy . They are so fabulous arent they!!! I just love the candle background. I used a candle from the a Christmas Doohickey release and popped them on some acetate to make them look like they are floating.

The other dies, they are from a Harry Potter die pack that also came with a hat, owl , dobby and 9 3/4 die along with the broom and the golden snitch. The snitch i cut on pale gold card stock then sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Gold.

Now the sentiments....these I would at an awesome company called Ink Road Stamps. I love the sentiments. I comes with some many fabulous ones. I love the little feet so thought on the bottom if the card I would create my own little mischief managed map route.

The little broom and witches hat is from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Hope you have a great week ahead

up among the stars

Happy October!!

Yep the bewitching month is upon us now. Not that we do anything goes it but I love the whole witchy/ spooky (not scary dont do scary!) thing. In fact Ive got halloween themed gym clothes! yay!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Magnolia forever challenge blog -anything goes with the option of purple
Allys Angels- Anything goes
The Official Magnolia Inspiration and Challenge blog- Monochrome

So I have been chugging through my Christmas cards. I wanted an  Angel Gabriel kinda card....all gold and stars. I used an older Tilda but isnt she gorgeous. I wanted to stick to my gold theme. I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. The papers are from Kaisercraft a few years ago but still one of my faves that they have put out for Christmas.

The dies...oh the dies.... Well the card shape is a die from a craft mag and its been used so so much. The clouds are from a Magnolia die. The stars, well that is the one and only Tim Holtz. I used a Little Darlings Rubber stamp die for the background, and i popped this star die over it and ran it through my craft machine. I then used some glitter gold paper and popped it behind the cut out stars. I also used the same die on the flaps on the card.

I used stars from the same Holtz die set. I adhered them to come clear plastic and the popped them round Tilda so it looked like she is up in the  clouds among the stars.

Hope you have a great weekend ahead.

if i had a hammer...


Happy 1st October.... yes OCTOBER PEOPLE!! This is not a drill!!! wow!

You have me across as Guest Designer at Simply Magnolia  this month and the challenge theme is' Anything goes with the option of Purple'

Now I am not a big purple fan so I skipped that element and went with a bday card for my dad.

I used 'Sitting Cosy Edwin' for this card. He is such a versatile image. I coloured our boy Edwin in Distress Inks.

I used the good old push me pull me card aka Double slider surprise card . I used papers from Kaisercrafts 'Technologic' release. Its such a great release. Something for every male card and esp if they like computer games.

The dies...ohhh the dies....they are from Magnolia. I wanted a Mr Fix it kinda card...even if i did think the hammer die was a saw hence the title of blog post (was too late to change it once it was glued down! 😵 ) I love love love the little nails!!! how flipping awesome and cute are they!

I added a die cut from the Kaisercraft collection for the sentiment on the inside...its kinda true hehe!

The little pull me sign is from a stamp in my stash but I cannot for the life of me find the label.

I hope you have a fab week ahead.
