Time for Snuggles

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

A very busy morning, I have some errands to do before I go and get weighed.
After my mini break I am hoping to have maintained and not put weight on but we will have to see.

I have been playing around with my Screen Sensation and made this gift.


I have used my Screen Sensation with pearlised white paint onto black 12 x 12 card to create this insert for my 12 x 12 frame.  

I am really pleased with the monotone effect.

Purr-fect Day

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Hope you all had a great weekend.

As you know I am a cat lover and missed my Fluffy and Georgie while we were away.
When we came home they gave us the silent treatment until it was time for food and treats.
They are little tinkers but I would be lost without them, especially in the evening whilst watching TV when they both snuggle up with me, extra warmth, my little hot water bottles 😂

Today sharing a cute kitty card.


Step by Step

1. I die cut the base card with white pearlescent card.
2. Matted and layered navy card.
3. Die cut scalloped circle die with navy card and matted and layered topper.
4. Adhered the sentiment along the bottom.
5. To finish off added the resin flowers.

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Towards the end of last year I won a challenge over at Creative Artiste mixed media blog and was asked if I would be a Guest Designer for Challenge #57.

Of course I said yes!  Today I am sharing my canvas with you which I have used a combination of Sue Baker Presents and Cadence products.


Step by Step

I have used a 10 x 8 canvas panel and first layer is the rice paper.
I then stencilled using Structure paste and stippled around the paper with Starlights Mentol.
Using Cadence finger wax I stencilled the script in 3 areas.
For the next layer I stencilled the butterflies using Sparkle Medium in silver.
To finish off I edged the canvas with green finger wax and added splats.
