'MayLeeDee' - Thank You - for Paperbabe

Hiya and Welcome to my Blog Post Today for Paperbabe Stamps

Wowser this year is flying by now and cannot believe we are so near the end of May already - My house has been crazy this week with packing my 14year old Ashleigh off to Ardeche in France and with my 15 3/4year old William sitting his final GCSE's he leaves school June 17th - its all getting a bit real here now

Now on to todays Project for the Paperbabe Stamps Challenge that starts today - The Theme this time is a Sketch! which is always a lot of fun as you have to create a card/project that follows the theme. You can flip the sketch, reverse it and use it anyway you like as long as we can see the basic sketch within your card/project - the Sketch we are using is below...

The Prize this time as always is a Fabby one so please do visit the Paperbabe Stamps Blog to check out all the details, to get inspiration from the Beautiful Design Team Projects and to enter your make - you have to be in it to win it as they say 

Here is my Card for the Challenge...

I reversed the Sketch just for fun and chose circular dies to create a topper for the main focal point using the lovely 'MayLeeDee' clear stamp

I chose some pretty papers and cardstocks to create my card-front - the torn edge piece was originally the packaging from a stamp in my own stash but it was far too pretty to throw away. I'm a bit of a frugal crafter and will use anything that is pretty as i cannot bear to waste anything where possible

I coloured 'MayLeeDee' using my Copic Markers (they were feeling a bit neglected bless them as I havent coloured with them at all this year) - I coloured her using colours to match with my papers i had used

I stamped the 'Thank You' red rubber sentiment stamp using light grey ink directly onto the backing paper on the card-front

Here is a Closer look at 'MayLeeDee'...

I just love love love colouring Hair and had forgotten how much I love my Copics

Please do enter the Paperbabe Challenge - Kim & the Design Team all look forward to seeing your entries

Design Team Post - 'Love Isn't Complicated' - Bee Crafty

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty
Such Lovely Weather we have been having in my home town Harlow, Essex - But its really effecting my Hayfever so I have been hiding away indoors x
Today I am sharing a quick & simple make using just one sentiment, 2 stencils and lots of ink

Bee Crafty Products used in this make...
Products used that are available from Bee Crafty...
I used low tack tape to attach the Circle Template to a piece of linen card stock I had trimmed down to fit the front of a 6x6 card blank. I think inked the background, lightest to darkest fromt he circle out to the edge using 'Picked Raspberry', 'Dusty Concord' and 'Black Soot' Distress Inks to create a dark purplely gothic looking background. I then Inked through the Dots Template using 'Black Soot' Distress Ink but only in the corners. I then stamped the Sentiment using Black Archival Ink
I fixed this inky panel to a matt of black cardstock and then atached to the card blank with the card turned to create a tent fold card instead of a traditional side opening card
Thank You so much for Visiting my Post Today - Please visit the Bee Crafty Blog soon to see more Gorgeous makes from our Talented Design Team

Hiya and Welcome to my Blog

Today is Friday the 13th... ooooh I hear you say. But I am in no way superstitious about this so I say 'Happy Friday 13th' to you all - sending best wishes and love your way x x

Today over at Paperbabe Stamps and the theme is a very Fun One!! 
Black & White with one other Colour

The Challenge is live over on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog - please visit to see all the details the prize is amazing so get those entries in 

I chose Blue to go with my Black & White theme 

I made a Birthday Card for my example this time using 'Dillon Hatter' (red rubber stamp) who reminds her of her own little mad hatter son Ethan who this card was for on May 1st when he turned 10.

I used artist colour pencils to colour Dillon Hatter The background was made using Washi Tape and the dots stamp from the Birthday Wishes stamp set I then used 2 of the word stamps from the same set for the sentiment.
