Happy Days

Hello Everybody,

Thanks for popping by and leaving such lovely comments on my recent posts, especially for the Patchwork Cottage. It was an experiment and I’m so glad it worked!

I’m back with another super speedy card for you … more trampolining hedgehogs

trampolining hedgehogs II


I stamped the hedgehogs (Little Claire) in black memento ink – TIP! it is best to use an older ink pad for this otherwise the black is too strong – and coloured them using some shimmery chalks.I then stamped my sentiment in elegant eggplant (both Stampin’Up!), rounded a couple of corners, added a few clear gems and sparkly highlights (glitter gel pen for a subtle look) to finish.

I am entering my card into the ‘jump’ challenge over at CASology.

Have a great Sunday everybody … back soon …

until then …

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

Happy Easter

Hi Everybody,

take III for today.

Another one to enter in the Addicted to Stamps and More ‘Make your Mark’ Challenge …

and to wish you all a Happy Easter!!!

Easter Ducks

Just in case you wonder … the Happy Easter sentiment has a deliberate wonky effect. Thought it was more fun and fitted with the joy of Spring.

sentiment stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin’UP!, Ducks and basket stamps by Little Claire, Border Punch from Martha Stewart

Back after Easter … until then

Happy crafting!!!

Partying Hedgehogs

Hi Everybody!

Apart from being in a ‘cute’ phase I am also going through a ‘going through my stamp collection and use one I haven’t used before or haven’t used in a long time’ phase. Somewhere hidden amongst my stamps, I found these trampolining hedgehogs. I got them a long time ago when Little Claire Stamps first started up, I liked it but never used it … until now, when it turned into a piece of not so obvious ‘Street Art’.

Partying Hedgehogs

This card came about, when my friend Sue mentioned that a friend of hers looked after abandoned baby hedgehogs and that she liked giving her cards with a hedgehog theme … hence, we made it in class yesterday.

Hmmm, I wonder if I could enter this one in the ‘friends’ challenge at Out of a Hat Creations … I think I will do just that. Chrissie, Janet and Sandra, you can always let me know if it is a bit too far-fetched and I shall post another entry …

I used my trusted Hougie Board to score the brick effect background from core-dination card stock. The hedgehogs are coloured in using Promarkers, and the stamp I used to frame the image with tiny leaves is from the Hopeful Thoughts set by Stampin’Up!

Back soon with more

Have fun and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
