You’re Dino-mite!

Morning Dear Reader, hoping that you are well? I have everything crossed that we’ll have nice weather at the weekend as we are hoping to be able to go for a picnic.

A few weeks ago i was playing about with shrink plastic, and recently i made them into cards;  here’s one of them;

{shrink plastic, stamps Lawn Fawn coloured with pencils}

I coloured them with pencils before i shrank them, you have to remember that they get darker as they get smaller so you colour them lightly you can add in a little shading and then when they shrink they become a deeper colour.

I mounted them with glue dots on a square mount then a dark brown square base nice and simple.  I thought that this would be a slightly more masculine card that you give give the man in your life to tell them you love them.

That’s it from me today, until next time

Be my Love Bug…..

Hello Dear Reader, i am sharing a card with you today, it is quite clean and simple in its design and really is quite quick in its assembly also.

{Bugs and Kisses Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn}

I stamped the images and coloured them with spectrum noir pencils that i blended with fluid, once i die cut them i popped them on the card base with 3D foam pads.
The base is a simple dark brown square with a pink and a white layer which i stamped the sentiment on to.

That’s it from me today, until next time

Spring Florals {part two}

Morning Dear Reader, Pinch punch first of the month, phew! nearly halfway through the year already why does it seem to speed past the older that you get?

Today i will be sharing with you the second layout of my spring floral layout, this was done in the project life style as i had quite a few photos that i wanted to add. I made the cards using the same papers and some of the bits that i gutted from the other layout so that they co-ordinated well together.

{supplies from Hey Little Magpie, papers a mix of Jillybean and Simple Stories, metal embellishment and doilies from my stash}

This started life as a Design X page protector from Becky Higgins i didn’t want the full 12x12 so i cut it down to fit what i wanted- it had 2 more portrait 6x4 pockets, as long as you cut so that there is a little bit of clearance along the sealed little bead like part you should be find and nothing untoward will happen.

I hope that you like my layout, that’s it from me today until next time
