Playing with a new die


Before we were all staying home I received a craft parcel and one of the item in it was this die from Memory Box called Pretty Blossom. The main reason I brought it because I though I could use the flower head, you just have to snip a couple of places to remove it from the stem.

I used the SSS Stitched Rectangles for the centre mat and I used it to cut my dotty paper. With the Tiny Words stamps to stamp the sentiment, a quick card to make.

Baby Flora


This will be the last image of B's that I've made for Mo Manning, next week couple of weeks I have  a couple of new ones before I start on C. Back to my image this one is Baby Fairy Flora Redux.

The papers are Echo Park Hello Baby It's a Girl not really sure the check ones behind the pretty purple one really goes but its well and truly stuck on.

The border round my circle is a My Favourite Things Crochet Border which is easy to snip at the edges to make a lovely border. The flowers are also MFT their Upsy Daisy dies still a firm favourite of mine. The leaves are a Poppy Stamps that look like a punch I have that doesn't work anymore but I used for weighting things down to help them stick.

Hope you're all coping with the social distancing and I feel a bit better since I found a way to make my brain to relax and not think other than listen to the words of a story while crafting.

I've been hunting for a while trying to work out what pack of pattern paper I got the wooden effect one from and for the life of me I can't remember. I do have a pile of current ones from Simon says Stamps but which I simply can't find.

Meanwhile the gorgeous rose blossom is Gina K Savanah Rose stamp which I have fussy cut and layer. I colour with pencils just in case you're interested, I do have copics but they hurt my joints getting the lids off and on again.

I used the Stitched Rectangles from Simon says Stamp since it allows me to layer and mat my card.
The Love is their die and the words that are embossed with white embossing power is from the co-ordinating stamp set.

Honey Doo Flowers


When I went to Create It at Farnborough which seems ages ago now I brought these stamp and matching dies. I do feel I have the stamps but since I couldn't guaranteen that I had I brought them again. I have to say I haven't found them if I do have them.

The frame is Simon says Stamp but the lattice is Sunny Studio. My SSS stitched Banners didn't quite work with this particular sentiment.

Not my best card but it kept me busy and I was listening to my Audio Book so whenever that didn't help but it helps me.

Cornish Comfort


My Cornish Comfort is now finished and its one I plan to keep for me. The pattern is from Helen Shrimpton.

I have lots of odd balls of wool so I've decided to make a blanket using them for my next blanket but just in case I've recently order some more in hope we will still have deliveries.

I've finished my Thursday night project just need to get it photographed.

I have managed to get some card making done, I've brought the audio book to the book I'm reading and I put that on and my brain as to listen otherwise when I read it normally it won't make sense. It seems to be working for now.

Bunny with Basket


Today my card is a Happy Easter there was a sketch but whose and when I can't remember a lot as happened since then.

The sweet image is Bunny with basket from Mo Manning and the papers are Doodlebug.

The flower border is from Lawn Fawn and I cut the border a couple of time so I could cut of their flower heads to stick on my border. Sentiment is an old LOTV stamp.
