At Home With You. A Masked and Watercoloured Card

Hello there and welcome!
Which is exactly what today's card says too! Welcome! I purchased the "At Home With You" bundle in my very first order, when the new catalogue launched, as it was another 'must have' and I finally got around to playing with it this week! That's holidays for you, they sure do interrupt crafting time, lol!
So I decided to set myself  little challenge using this set by making one card more or less flat and another using the dies and so with plenty of dimension. Today is the turn of the flat version so there was lots of masking involved to create this scene and I kept the colours to pastel tones. I've always wanted to live in a pink cottage *sigh*.  Let's take a look....
 TIP: When stamping a little scene like this (with masking) start with the images that will be at the front of the picture first. So the wreath and pots were stamped first on here.
 I used shimmer card to stamp and watercolour this image which I think is a lovely paper for this type of card and it's smooth for stamping onto too. Of course you can use watercolour paper too, if you prefer.
Well, I hope you enjoyed todays card and have a great Sunday!
Thanks for looking today :-)

Sneak Peek! Christmas Sweaters Mini Stepper Card

I have a fun mini stepper card for you today using a new stamp set from the upcoming Christmas Catalogue called Christmas Sweaters! If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen many sneak peeks of this set this week as I can't seem to stop playing with it. Its just so fun!
PLUS: I have hard copies of the Christmas catalogue right here in my sticky mitts - official launch/orderable date is 1st September - so if you would like one (I'm posing them out this week) let me know :-)
So, lets take a closer look at this card...
 Do you recognise this fun card fold? It was one I designed last year at Christmas, so you can go and see the video right now, including how to make a custom envelope for it to fit in - HERE :-)
 I think it works perfectly for this jumper design. The snowflakes are from the Seasonsonal Layers die set (available as a bundle with the matching stamps) and the sentiment is from another upcoming set called Hearts Come Home which you are also going to love! 
OK, that's today's card, remember if you'd like a Christmas Catalogue drop me a line :-)
Please Note #1: I have added the new products in the links at the end of the post but they won't be live 'till the 1st September :-)
Please Note #2: There are lots of new products in the Clearance Rack! Go!
Thanks for looking today

Touches Of Texture Pair Of Cards.

I'm back from my holiday in Kos- yep, where the earthquake was! We were all completely unscathed as our hotel was a newer one but we visited Kos town and saw some damage to the older buildings and the port side there which was sad. We certainly didn't let it spoil our holiday had a really lovely time away together and would highly recommend Kos and especially the hotel we stayed in :-)
So, now we are home it's all go here. The roof is (finally) being fixed this week -hooray- but there is a gritty layer of dust all over the house, not so yay ;-)
Luckily I have had a lot to make in my craft room (which is, as yet, untouched) and I been on a crafty roll so have made loads of fun cards! These ones are some I made before I went away using the very lovely, but much underused by me, stamp set Touches of Texture.....
 This was in a Pink Pirouette colourway
 And this the Wisteria Wonder version.
We made these to send up to Manchester so they have a little bee on there which is also in this set.
 I love the lace border along the bottom edge.
Which colour do you like best?
Thanks so much for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with another card :-)

New Driver, Paper Pieced, VW Beetle Card!

My friend's daughter passed her test a while back and so (obviously) I had to make her a card to celebrate and I just realised I forgot to share it with you! Unfortunately I didn't have any current car stamps but luckily, I keep a few of my very favourite retired stamp sets and so I could make this card using the Beautiful Ride set....
I like how this set works great with paper piecing.
Sentiment is also in the set
Add in a few tiny clouds from the Lift Me Up stamps and dies and a few sequins to finish.
She was pleased with her card :-)
Well, I must get better at sharing things here sooner! I'll work on it ;-)
'Till then, thanks for looking today! Back tomorrow with another card....

You are my #1 Hero!

Today I have a pair of cards for you although I actually made a third design but I managed to send them before I photographed them, doh! These were more cards for emergency services and I used last years Ronald McDonald charity stamp set, called "My Hero" let's take a look...
You could use the Best Badge punch to punch these out quickly, if you have one of course (I don't ;-))
These mostly blue ones were for the police.
And some ambulance green ones ;-)
Emerald Envy is a perfect colour for this.
And together to finish.
Short and sweet from me for today, I'll be back soon with some more for you, 'till then...
