Just Gorjuss!!


I had a fab day yesterday at the Craft Box. The lovely Meesh did a class on how to colour with Promarkers. I learnt so much and I can't wait to play some more. I now feel like I can colour properly, lol!!

Here is another card that I made over the weekend. It is with my new Gorjuss stamp, love it.

I coloured the image with my Distress Inks again and used some lovely Strawberry paper. I made some flowers with my Marianne Die and added a a few pins with beads threaded through.

Strawberry Molly xx

Hi Everyone,

Well, last night was the first night that I felt like doing a bit of crafting and once I had started I couldn't stop.

I decided to get out my Strawberry Molly and Herb Seat and do a bit of masking. I also coloured the images with my Distress Inks for a change.

Here it is......

I used my new Stella Rose papers and I just love the vibrant colours. I edged all the papers with stickles and added glamour dust to my image.

I used some of my Magnolia flowers which were still not opened until this card. I really enjoyed colouring with the "DI" and I think my colouring has certainly come along since the last time I tried.

I also made a card with my new Gorjuss Stamp, which I love and I will try and blog this tomorrow.

Magnolia Card xxx

Hi All,

I have not been the best with my blogging and commenting. I am very sorry.

My asthma has once again been a total nightmare and I am struggling. I haven't slept one single night this week straight through.

I haven't been able to craft either because I just don't have the patience at the moment, not even to colour!!

Here is a card that I made a couple of weeks ago at a class at the Craft Box. I love it when we use my favourite stamps.

I don't usually buy Easter stamps because I just don't get enough use out of them, but this one is really sweet. I don't have it myself so it was nice to use it at the class.

We used the new Marianne Dies to make the flowers. I wasn't sure at first, but now I love them I have bow bought the die!

Don't Faint, but another post.....

I thought I would be daring and post for the second time this weekend!

I made this card a couple of days ago for a card order that my Mum asked for.

I used two of the new Magnolia images which had their first "ink up" this week. How bad am I????

I decided to make an aperture with my oval nellie dies and place the picket fence from Make it Colourful in the background.

I coloured both images with my Aqua Promarkers and made the clouds myself by cutting a basic cloud shape out and inking inside the DIY stencil with my DI in Broken China.

I know the front of the card looks a little empty, but I need to put quite a long name on the top so I haven't put this on yet. Just looking for the right letters!
