Polly Loves Perfume

Tuesday, 24 November 2015
Hey peeps how are you doing?  I am quite disappointed we haven't had the snow that other parts of the country seem to have had :-(  Having said that I only like it when I don't have to drive in it so if I could order some for the Crimbo holidays that would be fab.

Since starting Weight Watchers I am really getting back into my cardmaking again as it gives me a focus other than food.  I also have some very exciting DT news coming next week too so watch this space.

For today's card I have used one of my favourite colour combos....black and pink...oh and spots too...did I ever tell you I LOVE spots!

The image is Polly Loves Perfume, one of the Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella....isn't she fab and oh how I wish I had a sofa that looked like that.

I've used a mish-mash of various black and white papers from my stash, some of which I have matted onto hot pink cardstock and then layered them up in my usual style.

I die cut a hot pink panel using the MFT Stamps polka dot cover up die and popped that into the background and also used the Love Notes Confetti Cuts frame die from Reverse Confetti in the top corner.

It's quite a busy card but that's what I do best lol!

That's all from me today, hope you all have a fantastic day

Party Time Avery

Thursday, 19 November 2015
Hello everyone, long time no see.  I've had a few technical problems but everything seems to be up and running again now so I am back!

Today I am showcasing the fantastic Party Time Avery from The Papernest Dolls.  I feel like I have struggled lately to find my mojo and have been trying hard to bring it back by making some clean and simple designs.  This sounds stupid but I find CAS cards really hard so I'm back with the layers and woohoo I'm happy again lol.

I absolutely adore these Pebbles papers and I have had them in my stash for so long that I am hanging on to every single spare scrap because I know I can't get them anymore.

There was no rhyme or reason to how this card took shape and I had no idea where I was going with it.  I randomly cut some shapes and played about until I was happy with the layout.

I matted all my layers onto chocolate brown cardstock to make them pop and did some faux stitching around the panels.

Avery has been coloured with Copics and I've added some button and flag details as embellishment.

That's all from me today, I won't leave it so long next time .
