Without rain there'd be no rainbows

Without rain there'd be no rainbows

What a fabulous sentiment stamp , it was a freebie with
Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 189
Not sure it is in the shops yet as I get mine on subscription which is normally a few days ahead of the shops ~ mine arrived this morning full of stunning stamps and a couple of dies

Deciding on a circle easel which is probably my favourite card shape
I cut out using lilac card stock
I then used Roaring Twenties double sided 12x12 card pack ~ I have had this quite a while but first time it has been used I love it so much.

Magnolia Tilda was coloured using distress inks
I then added extra raindrops and grass (two of the other freebie stamps from magazine)
I used the die from Polkadoodles Elegant Nest
Die Cut the clouds (freebie) I also die cut lamplight and some random stars
I cut an umbrella on my portrait and shrunk it right down to fit my card

The sentiment was finished using rainbow Distress Oxides.
I added some flowers, sparkly nettting and dew drops
and finished of with some lovely Morlaix Cotton Lace from Crafty Ribbons

Smiley Sunday

I have called my post Smiley Sunday each time I see these characters I smile
They are so nice to just sit and chill and colour up
and that is just how I spent my Sunday morning
I was up early and got all Granddaughters uniform ironed for school next week and then I gave myself the rest of the morning off to create in my happy place
And this is what I created (there are lots more photos in my little slideshow below)

I have used Distress Oxides on the background along with a brick mask.
I used random stamps for the stars, circles, brave and worthy
I did a few doodles around the edge
and then it was time .....
To colour up my Vera Lane Studio images
The Blue Flower, Fairy , House and sentiment are from The Fairy House Collection
The Bee is from Sprinkle and Sparkle
The other 2 flowers are from the Bloom collection
And the little Bird has flown over from Small things matter
All were coloured with Distress Inks
A splash of glitter was used on her wings and wand and on the little Bee

Bloom where you are Planted ~ part 2

Happy Wet Friday
Ohhh so much rain but I don't care, I really am in my happy place right now with crafting
A few days ago I discovered Vera Lane images, 
I totally am having a blast!!

Here is a link to the store
But be warned addiction may occur!!
I decided I wanted to make myself a canvas
This one is 8x8

I started off doing the boring Gesso and once dried I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the brick work along with some modelling paste ~ Luckily at this point I went shopping so it could dry naturally without me sticking me fingers in to see if its dry even though I knew it wasn't.

So once home I painted a random background using Ecolines.
I used a inkwell stamp Meadow Row for the black stamping at the bottom.
And added a few various stencils and stamps

Now from Vera Lane Studio I used
I also used the amazing collage sheets

I have used Distress inks to colour and some oxides on the background
I finished off by giving the bee's a sprinkle of glitter and then added some fun sequin mix oh a a few splodges of Nuvo drops Gloss ~ Carnation Pink

Wooohooooo what an exciting week
The Crafty Ribbon DT got lots of lovely new ribbons to play with

It's collaboration week with Fiskars
I was sent some lovely Classic Foldable scissors
and also the sweetest heart punch
I had stacks of ideas but settled on
Baby shoes with matching box

I cut the shoes and box on my portrait
and using my lovely scissors cut the Unicorn ribbon and Chantilly Cotton lace
I cut two little unicorns for the front of the shoes.
I used the heart punch to make buttons and also on the front of the box

Bloom where you are Planted

Bloom where you are Planted
I just love this saying and guess what....
I have come across a new artist well new to me and I just love her work
Here is a link to the Etsy Store
I spent literally hours today going through the store OMG I could have brought the lot!
Lately I have been doing mainly stamping projects but these have certainly wet my digi appetite again
The first set I brought 
Which contained 6 digi stamps
So from the collection I used The little girl, (there's 2) the scalloped border, The bright pink flower (there's 2 also) and the sentiment

Hasn't that girl got attitude!! I do love some attitude
I used Distress Oxides on the background along with some fun stencils
For colouring up I used Distress Ink

I used a couple of random stamps the Orange flower stem and the tiny circles around the edges
Then....... Now I am really excited about this....
I found not only these perfect images but.....
There are also Collage elements
I got the circles and stems sheet , I could not wait to chop into it
I used ~ The blue stem and rainbow circle that I popped on as a quirky flower head
The red circle another flower head
and the green/black pink/black borders 

Want to know what else I brought??
