Football Alf

Finally back with you all and I thought I would show you a recent card I was asked to make, a 50th birthday for a Hull City fan !  I love the Alf character from Digistamp Boutique he just makes me smile so I decided to use 'Football Alf' for the card.

Its a large card 8 x 8, after googling the correct colours for Hull City I coloured Alf with my promarkers.  I used papers from Etsy and made my own 'Tigers' paper on the pc too as that is the teams nickname.  The numbers are cut with a Stampin'Up die and I cut 3 layers for those, 2 black layers and a white layer which I coloured to match. I then offset them slightly so that there is a bit of a shadow effect.

Thank you for looking today,

2 More Sleeps !!

Hi Everyone,

Yep only 2 more sleeps until the big everyone ready ??
Food shopping today for the fresh bits you have to leave until the last minute to get, hopefully it won't be too manic but I think that's probably wishful thinking Lol

Anyway I have another Christmas card to share with you today,

I used LOTV's 'James wrapped in Tinsel' digi stamp for this card coloured with my new Illustrator pens, I love these pens and they have a lovely brush nib but I need more practise, I have tried to make James look 'furry' but it hasn't turned out quite how I hoped. I used some sparkle gel pen on the tinsel and baubles which you can just about make out in the pic I think.....really sparkly in real life though !
Matted onto Kraft card and some Trimcraft paper that was free in a magazine. The lovely sentiment is LOTV I love the font on these sentiments and the snowflake die is Clearly Besotted.

I still have a few Xmas cards to share with you but just in case I don't manage to get back before the big man in the red suit arrives I would just like to wish all of my lovely blog friends a truly wonderful Christmas, hope you get everything you want from Santa ;) lots of crafty goodies hopefully and to say thank you for sticking with me this year as I know I have been a pretty rubbish blogger but I promise to try harder next year !

Big Hugs,
Kaz xx

Santa Claus is Coming to Town !

Hello Everyone,

Well I think I am finally catching up with everything, Presents still to wrap and a couple more cards to make (hubby's and my in-laws) and probably a few more tags but phew other than that I think we are sorted !
I know I'm not alone in saying every year...Next year I am going to be more organised...yeah right hahaha

I have a Christmas card to share with you today, I had this digi image on my pc but it has no name on it, I had thought it was LOTV but I can't find it on their site so I have no idea where it is from...if anyone can help with that I would be grateful.

Anyway onto my card

I have used some Pink Petticoat paper matted onto Ruby Red card from PMD, Joycraft die-cut Trees and a Joanna Sheen snowflake. The image is coloured with Promarkers and my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens which I love, I have added some sparkle gel pen to the fur on Santa's jacket and hat but you can't see it in the pic. I had such a problem with shadow when trying to photograph this card and then it ended up a wee bit bright instead :(
The sentiment on this card is from LOTV.

That's all for now, thank you for looking and if you have time to leave a comment it will make my day !

Thinking of You

Good Afternoon,
I have a couple of Thinking of You/Sympathy cards to show you today,

For the card on the left I used an IndigoBlu stamp and the one on the right is an Inkylicious stamp.
I used Seedless Preserve Distress Ink for the background and just matted onto black card. The sentiments were from 2 different CB sets.

Hope you are all having a crafty weekend,
Hugs, Kaz xx

21st Birthday !

Good evening Everyone,

 Not my 21st unfortunately lol .....oh to be that age again ;)  No I have a 21st card to show you that I was asked to make for a friend's son.

Another very simple card....Mr Mojo is still in holiday mode !

I just stamped the Happy Birthday from a CB set in different Versacolor inks then matted onto some bright blue Papermill card. You can't really tell from the pic but the 21 was embossed with clear powder. The number stamps and glitter paper are Hobbycraft.

Hoping to get lots done this week for my upcoming craft fair....fingers crossed.

Thanks for looking today,

Back at last !

Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad to finally be posting again, I have missed it but to be perfectly honest I have made nothing worth showing lately my crafty mojo has been for a major walkabout !
We sadly lost a close family friend last month in tragic circumstances and that has contributed a bit to my lack of posting too.

But I need to shape up and find motivation from somewhere as I realised the other day that the craft fair I booked in for months ago is now suddenly only 2 weeks away !!

I have a wedding card to show you today that was commissioned by a friend recently

Not a great photo I'm afraid, I find white on white really difficult to photograph and it kept looking like the groom was standing there on his own bless him.... Lol
As you can see its quite a simple card, I kept it to white and cream as the wedding colour scheme was a secret.

It's an 8 x 8 card, I cut a piece of PMD smooth white card and scored lines using my hougie board to add some texture/interest, matted onto cream card. I used Wild Rose Studio and Joanna Sheen dies and added some tiny punched flowers. I went over the whole of the bride with my Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle and added tiny gems to the flowers and some gorgeous organza ribbon. The sentiment was computer generated.

I was also asked to make a bouquet charm for the bride as her son lives in Australia and was unable to be there with her on her special day, apparently she was moved to tears when she received it and Skyped her son on the morning of the wedding to show him he was with her in a way.

Hope you have all been having a lovely weekend despite the grotty weather (more crafting time ?)
Thanks for looking and if you leave a comment thank you so much they are hugely appreciated,

Super Striker

Hi Everyone,
Back for my second post of the day to show a card this time,

I have used LOTV's 'Super Striker' for my card which I stamped onto watercolour card and then coloured with distress inks. I kept the card very simple with pink petticoat papers and some twine. I used a Spellbinders Labels One die to cut out the image.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend,
Kaz xx
