Playing Catch Up....

Part One!!!

I have missed taking part in a few of the Craft Barn Challenges, but want to have a complete set of tags...so I have decided to play 'catch up!'

The Ninth challenge way back in May was

'UNIQUE & FAME'.....



I have gone with my favourite Girlie :) :) The background was created with Distress re-inkers and then over stamped and clear embossed.
I used a favourite Oscar Wilde Quote....
I just finished off with a brad and my initial :)...

Thanks for looking.......hopefully more to come :)

I Can........

Fly......

Morning :)

I was so pleased with how yesterdays card turned out, I thought I'd make a Tag...



I have used the same image..........'Firefly fairies'  This time I thought she need legs! So I chopped some off another image! Coloured with Spectrums.
I made the background at the same time as I did the card........I got very inky fingers!!! and another 'found' stamp for the Quote!

Thanks for looking....

A friend........

listens with the heart.......

Morning...

I have been playing with the fantastic digi stamps by Vera Lane  I love these....They are designed by Janet Klein who designs for Stampotique...


I have use 'Firefly Fairies'  for my card....coloured with Spectrums and just a little Glossy Accents on her lips and heart...

The background is created with Distress Reinkers and water...and then over stamping around the edge. The image would have been lost just on this, so a matt was created for her with embossed paper which just had some DIs rubbed over the top.

The Quote is from a little set I have had for ages.....One of the benefits of 'de-cluttering' is I've found little gems like this one and the little Heart brad :)

Thanks for looking...

Grace...

Morning :)

The words for the Craft Barn Challenge  are:

PEACEFUL or GRACE.....

For my Tag this time, I have used 'GRACE'


My gorgeous Lady is 'Lady Of Grace'   by Stampington. I have had her for a long time and thought it was about time I used her :)

I have used a Tag by Crafty Individuals which already has a light background on it. I coloured the tag with DIs making sure where I was going to stamp was left uncoloured. She is stamped with StazOn and coloured with my Coloursoft pencils.  I have used a couple of background stamps to complete the tag...

Thanks for looking..

Family...........

Hi there.....

Honestly, you wait ages for a blog post and then 2 come along in one day!!!

The words on the Craft Barn 'Q & L' Challenge are 'FAMILY & THING' ..........I found a Quote by Michael J Fox that had both words in :)

'FAMILY is not an IMPORTANT THING, it is everything'


I used a fantastic image off an Artistic Outpost set of stamps...'Generation Redux'....Love it...I created the background with DIs and some Dylusions stamps... The Quote is computer generated.

Thanks for looking...

You Make Me ..........

Smile all over my Face :) :)

Morning.....

I wanted to make a Birthday card for a friend.....unfortunately it went a little late, but I'm pleased to say that she liked it....:)

I was mooching round Etsy (as you do!!!) and I found these FAB Digi stamps....Vera Lane .........designed by the very talented Janet Klein....who designs for Stampotique..........I LOVE ♥ ♥ ♥ them.....


I have used 'Whimsical Girl'.....coloured with my Spectrum Noirs.  To make the card background I squished a few colours of Distress Ink re-inkers onto my craft sheet and sprayed water onto them...swiped the card around and dries with my heat gun and repeated until I got the look that I liked...I then used some of Dylusions background stamps....The girlie looked a little lost just placed onto the card, so I got a piece of thin textured card and just rubbed DIs over it and then overstamped....The sentiment is a Personal Impressions one that I've had for ages....

I was so pleased with it that I made a little tag to go with it........



Thanks for looking....

You Were....

Born to Fly....

Hi there..I have recently 'acquired' :)  some gorgeous 'Crafty Secrets' stamps ...So I decided to make an inky Tag with them....


The base is a Ranger Manilla Tag...when I ordered them, I thought I was getting the 'normal' size Tags...but these are diddy ones! Perfect for the little stamps :)
The base is coloured with Distress Inks....I have used the background stamp off the Tim Holtz Butterfly set...I've sold most of my Tim Holtz stuff....and this set is the only one that I couldn't part with! The Scroll stamp was a freebie and is embossed in white...

I was so pleased with how she turned out that I made an ATC and a card to match...





Thanks for looking...
