Woodware love the hat and Rudolph and friends

Hello,just a quick post today because I have been on holiday and not crafting much
I have made these two simple Christmas cards for Sir Stampalot
with two new stamps from Woodware that I thought were so cute
The snowman is called 'Love the hat' and can be found HERE
and the one below is called Rudolph and friends and can be found HERE

Both are coloured with copics and I have used glossy accents although this doesn't show too well in picture
I did enjoy colouring these but my kids did not because I kept singing Christmas songs

Graphic 45 mini album made using envelope board

Something a little different for me today
I like making mini book and made this one using graphic 45 papers

I have used a 8x8 pad called 'Couture collection'

Each pocket is made using the envelope board by WRM keepers

All of the images are from the pad and I have only used lace and a few dies for extra details

There is lots of pockets in this mini book and it was fun to make

Sometimes it is nice to have a change from cards and I find making mini books very relaxing

Hope I did not bore you with too many pictures but it is not a easy project to photograph

Summer buzz Tilda

I decided to have a go at colouring with distress inks and using the white embossed lines technique
I keep seeing this done and thought it looked lovely and soft.
I first came across it on facebook, and it was done by Tina Makuc and thought it look fab and I like trying new things.
So out came the embossing powder which was hiding in the bottom of the draw, I can't remember the last time I embossed a stamped image. 

This was the result and I was quite pleased and like the look for a change, it was a little scary adding the eyes though.
I would like to enter my card in to the challenge on

Tilda with Leo the lion

Hello,another Tilda card from me today
this time I am using Tilda with Leo the lion
I have coloured the image with distress inks 

I have made the flowers from dies and used a go kreate die for the card base.
The letters are from a old Hero art alphabet stamp set I had.
 While I was having a blog break I had a good sort out and now trying to use some of the older stuff I have.

I also decorated the inside with left over card
I would like to enter my card into the challenge on
Tilda's Town - Anything goes
Must go now I am trying to eat spinach,feta cheese and roasted pepper quiche while writing 
this and its not very easy but is delicious.

Sneaky Tilda and cat

Distress ink colouring today for a change from me and with some of the stamps from the last magnolia collection which was
'Animals of the year' which can be found here at Sir Stampalot
I just so love this little cat he is so cute
I have used some papers left over from a graphic 45 pad that I used for a mini album for my base.
Graphic 45 papers are a little weakness of mine.


I have used the following dies

I would like to enter my card into
