I thought i would pop over to less is more challenge blog and maybe join in with this weeks challenge. So i had a looksie and this weeks challenge is ‘eyes’ I struggled for a while wondering what i could do, what i could use. Then i remembered about some new stamps that i bought a few weeks ago from the craft show at doncaster. I bought a couple of santoro stamps. I think the eyes are quite a prominent feature of the stamps so i figured that i would use one of those. As the card has to be one layer as well, i wanted the image to ‘pop’ so i thought i would stamp the image directly onto kraft cs.
I couldn’t think of what sort of sentiment i wanted to add to the card so i figured that i would just leave it blank for now.
I coloured the image using prisma pencils.
Thanks for looking

These are the colours to work with over at colour throwdown
I started playing around (as ya do) i decided on 2 different ideas, i couldnt decide on just one so settled for 2 hehe
This card uses stamps from PTI oval birthday, brushed blooms and nostaligic notions.
This card just uses stamps from the oval birthday set. I really love this set and i find that iam using it a lot just lately so much so that the set is just left out.
You can use this set for anything to create really quick cards. The happy birthday sentiment is from the set but really any sentiment stamp would work,great for invites and such.
I created some teacher cards with the set a few weeks ago but forgot to photograph them.
Thanks for looking
Yesterday i was sorting
rummaging in my craft room trying to organize a few things shove them out of the way and i found so may stamps that i had forgotten about . I came across a few christmas things i made a good few years ago.
All my christmas stamps/papers etc are all packed away so i decided to unpack my christmas things as it is August now ya know haha I love creating christmas things.
Anyhows back to the point of the post. I decided to colour some images,its been quite a while since i coloured any images.
So i sat there colouring a cpl. I was almost finished colouring my gorjuss girl image , i was just adding polkadots to her brolly with a sakura soufle pen, when a pen rolled across the image and smeared the soufle pen ink all over!!!
I have a cork board in front of me where i sit at my desk and i have whatever challenges etc that iam wanting to do printed off and pinned onto that. On my board was this sketch from http://casethissketch.blogspot.co.uk/
I figured that i could perhaps salvage half of my coloured image and maybe use it to create something based on this sketch.
So a happy accident card was made. I just stamped and fussy cut out the clouds. Stamped on the sentiment and then added lots of little glossy accent drops to look like rain. The sentiment and cloud stamps are PTI. At least i manage to do something with the image rather than bin it.
Thanks for looking

…..It all started with this colour inspiration pic from colourQ
For my first card i went with the pattern on the skirt. I used one of my most favourite stamp sets i own. Stella rose by my minds eye, ive had this stamp set quite a few years and still love it the same.
card 2 started with a printed card blank. then i added glittered texture paste with a stencil. The pennant stamps are from waltzing mouse and the sentiment stamps and die cut are papertrey.
So i started playing around using these colours and then combining with other challenges.
For these 2 cards i used mft blueprints 13 for card fronts. mft sentiment stamps. the star staps are unbranded ones from my stash.The circle stamps are from artemio
For the card below i used mft blueprints 13 again for card front. the gingham circle stamp is SU, all the other stamps are PTI.
1 card is more or less the sketch exact , the other 2 are slightly different, going with 4 and a sentiment.
Then there was the inspiration pic from Muse
Straight away i though of the wreath from pti lovely laurels kit. The sentiments are PTI as well from the brushed blooms stamp set.
If your still with me thanks for reading :)

I used papers, stamps n embellies from the gorgeous nostalgic notions make it mark it kit.
Im now creating a new large blanket, multicoloured wooly goodness :) We go camping in about 3 weeks and im hoping to have it finished by then so as i can take it with me :)
I absolutely adore these squares, i designed them myself and love them. I would absolutely love a large blanket made up of these squares, just how fab would that be, i think im going to have to make one.
Im enjoying creating simple and quick cards right now. A couple of days ago i sat and printed lots of a4 sheets of card with colourd stripes and chevrons so as i could use them as card blanks. Normally i just use plain white but i thought i woyld try some printed ones for a change now and again.

Its a simple card based on the sketch. I used pti stamps, ink and die cut hello. I also added a little liquid pearls. Its quite a bright card although it doesnt show up so bright in the pic.
