Floral tribute for Birthday

Hello there visitors,  so happy that you have called in to my room . 
Hope that all is well with you and yours .

Well , in my last post I did say that I was not well .Thank you to those who left kind words for quick recovery .  Not 100% but more like 85% better so nearly there . 

Today's card to share is mainly to show off some of the new paper from SU 
Delightful Daisy DSP.
Love all the floral papers in this pack  and you can look out for more cards from me as I use it till it is all gone .Not going to hoard papers any more ...said a card maker EVER!!




Thick Whisper White card base . Yellow and green card mattes from my stash .



I must admit to using pinterest images and Digi images but really there is nothing like holding a stamp in your hand ,inking it up , die cutting or punching it out . No matter if it is an image or a sentiment.
 What do you think ?

Daisy topper


Hello to you and you and of course you too. Thank you for calling in to my craft room where I warmly welcome you , hoping that you like my share today . 
Please let me know that you have been so that I can visit you too by leaving a word or two in the comment box . I would really appreciate that .  

Rain is so loud and the wind so strong just now that I can hardly hear myself think . 
It has been bitterly cold all day . And I think that the best place for me right now is tucked up in bed . 

But before I go,  I do want to share a card made today . 


 

Enjoyed playing with my new Daisy stamp and punch set . Thick White card base with paper from my stash .Die cut edge with my new MFT Stitched basic edges. The daisy was inked with Summer Sun yellow on white card . The leaves  were two step stamped on green card  . This time I just punched a small circle from Basic Black card scraps for daisy centre. The little sentiment stamp for bottom  corner of card is from a stamp set from a magazine . I stamped and punched out 3 daises, offset layered them all and added to card with foam dot .

I love the colour combination here for this simple card.

                       Time will pass and seasons will come and go.

Hi there blog pals and crafting buddies , welcome to my room .
Thanks for calling in .Hope all is well with you and yours .

Not sure if i should be on computer as we just had the loudest thunder clap and whitest lightening strike ever and it has been bucketing down for a while now and getting heavier . Good night for sleeping .

So it will be a quick post as I just want to share a card made this arvo .

White card base with a yellow card matte and yellow  paper back ground all from my stash . All words and stars  on sentiment panel are from a SU set Cake Crazy . The ribbon and bling are also from my stash .

Poor Twiggy is hiding between my legs shaking like a leaf because there are still rumblings of thunder over head .


                                              I'm not afraid of storms,
                            for I'm learning how to sail my ship.

I have been browsing through Pinterest for inspiration this week , as I do most weeks ,and I found a beautiful card by ..well I don't know . 
Learn more at Media cache -ako was the mark under it .
A craft pal , Jane,  bought it to my attention and I decided to tinker with it a little .

I forgot to add ink , Old Olive , for the leaves from Lucy's Stamps ,  in the ingredients . The sentiment is from SU set , Thoughts and Prayers .

Water colouring

Hello there and welcome to my room . So happy that you came to visit and I hope that you like what you see in this post .

Tonight I am happy to share a card made today using water colour . I was researching for ideas earlier today , finally made my way to SU demonstrators planning place [ a closed group] where I watched a video from Hannah Jones .
Slightly changed some aspects of her card to make it my own .

Entering challenge
http://desiref.blogspot.com.au/2017/07/atg-with-create-with-tlc-challenge-no12.html 


Here I have used SU thick white card base and water colour paper along with the thinlits Happy Birthday  die . embellished with SU candy dots.
I cut a piece of watercolour paper 5cm x 15cm and brushed water over to dampen the panel  before colouring strips of different inks .When dry I cut small tags to adhere to front of card
                            Inks used
                                                       
 

And for the inside 

Back ground mat has been water coloured too. 

I am hoping that this will brighten some ones day .

Everything is funny, as long as it's happening to somebody else.
