Artfull Crafts - Vintage Timeless

I wanted to do a quick post to show you what I spent this afternoon doing. About an hour was colouring with my copics, then another hour fiddling around with the layout. I have used Kaisercraft - Vintage Timeless paper. I have had this collection for a while now, I don't know why I haven't used it before it's stunning.

Below a close up of my copic colouring of my digi Wee Stamp "Spring Bringer"

And another close up of yummy Papervine trinkets - key and leaves

Hope you all had a great weekend.
Happy crafting

Another Wee stamp

Hello!! I have taken today off work to have all to myself, it's 8.42am, washing done, dishwasher unloaded, Cam dropped off at bus to head back up to boarding school, banana cake and choc chip biscuits made.... and.... duh... Bee staying home, she is coughing and spluttering... there goes my peaceful day. Oh well.. I'll tuck her up in front of TV with a hot water bottle... she'll fall asleep again soon.

So, I am no better off in the decision making I had to do yesterday. But I do have another card to show you! Yep another Wee Stamp. This one is called Amy. I actually have about 3 more to colour, so might do that today... or start a page on  my Project Life that seems to be getting neglected.
Hope you all have a great week... might pop back later to share some more cards.

Wee Stamps - Silver Fairy

Hiho, it's an overcast winter day here and I have one 10yr old sleeping on and off in her bed with a sore throat, runny nose and very very pale.... Off up town I went, now stocked up on jelly and lemonade ice blocks.... and Pamol to help her temp.
So a nice quiet day today, I have procrastinated on how I should....
 a) get rid of the boxes of cards I have...cant sell them (tried)... cant give them away I'm starting to get a complex!!... and
b) one of my Design teams that I love is coming to an end, so need to find something else out there in bloggy world to get my teeth into... or
c) do I just throw in the towel and not create anymore and concentrate on other things.... ohhhh the decisions!!!
Anyhoo... recently I bought some Wee Stamps digis. I LOVE them and cant understand why I didn't buy and colour these sooner! I have also used a new release die from Marianne Designs on top of the card - Creatable LR0269 and the leaves and swirl which was from April release Craftable CR1245
Righto... I'm off to tend to my young. Hope your all having a wonderful day and are making decisions a lot easier than me!

Artfull Crafts - Blast Off

Hello today I want show you a set of 3 cards using this months release Blast Off from Kaisercraft. What a fun bright range this is, not normally my style, but I loved it. All the cards follow this months theme at Artfull Crafts - "Files, Folders or Tabs".... They all have secret tabs... just the thing for kids to discover!

Firstly is this great little pocket card where I used Kaiser Collectabes for this Blast Off range. There were so many cute characters in collectable range, it was hard to choose which one to use!
 Another character!!

And another character.....

Hope I have inspired you, and given you some ideas to play with this range. Until next time...

Happy crafting!

New hobby....*sigh* paverpol

Ok... so I had a date with my hubby yesterday.... kids at school... so off we went on a road trip to a craft fair.... which is where I got introduced to Paverpol... hubby made me take (more like forced) a class... by myself with the instructor.... and  now have the bug.... big time. I'm going to attempt to sculpt a figure next.. can't wait.... here's some more images to give you an idea on the amazing things you can do. Oh and I showed my cousin today...... and she wants me to do a class!!!! *shudder*... But then again... I am only on a few Design teams now and have too much time on my hands... dangerous!!!
 So here's a couple of close ups.....

I added the key from Papervine today and rubbed gold over the whole project
Ok so that's my exciting news... and here is what very little else I did today...
Watched Cameron get her very first steaks - red!!!
And then cuppa with Marise while Cam looked after Lahny
Must be due to post a card tomorrow... so until then...Bye ;-)
