Tag it on Challenge:Spots and Swirls in Pink

This weeks Tag it on Challenge is spots and swirls in pink.

I used worn lipstick which is surprisingly my worst colour in the inkpads as I always struggle with this one.It is pink yes, but not my sort of pink if you know what i mean!!!
Again i used the foliage as embellishments which just add to the finishing touches!!

Tuesday Taggers:Swirls and Curls

This weeks Tuesday Taggers is Swirls and Curls.I quite enjoyed this one.
I coloured white card lightly with Mountain Rose adirondack ink pad then stamped using a stampendous clearset with brushed corduroy.For the flower i tore three different sized circles and again coloured with mountain rose and added Foliage elements to the centre and leaves.
For the top i added two swirly clips and finely wrapped orange wire around a cocktail stick to make a fine spring as the hanger.
Thankyou so much for looking.
Hope you all have a great weekend

A Pressie for my Cousin in Denmark

Well I am safe to post this now as i know Louise has received it.I made it last week and like usual never like to part with them,so Im definately going to make myself one.I specially did these colours for Lou because she has the most groovy fridge. A Cool SMEG fridge in pale blue and hopefully this will match.I made the teapot for her last year(a few posts down on the right)and she hangs that there too .We will be desending on her shortly which Iam really looking forward to and so are the kids as we have such a fab time.This year there is another addition to the family,whom we missed seeing by a week last year(i went to help her rest or supposedly, but did she!!!oh no) Though i did manage to MAKE her put her feet up in the afternoon!!lol.Anyhow it will be great to see Jaden this year who is nearly walking now and also the other gorgeous three.
Again i used the grungepaper and used my nestibilities label.The letters are from the grunge alphabet.The inkpads are Adirondack Pool and Purple Twilight.
For the hanger i wrapped purple wire round a pencil to make the coil and added the ribbons.The paper flowers are made as before shown below.
Anyway must go its late and im shattered!!
Bye for now and thanks for looking.

A Baby Card

I would just like to say Congratulations to Leanne and Matt on the birth of Lexie-Mae.Well done xx
For the card i used the free embossing folder which was in with my cuttlebug.It has come in very useful indeed.For the background i used a hero stamp of baby feet which i have had for years, so it may be discontinued. The embellishments and ribbon are all from The Stampman
The very tiny hands and feet i cant remember(my stash i have collected over the years.!!)
I also made a matching Boxerlope.These i find are just fab as most my cards are always embellished slightly and just add the extra protection than a normal envelope(note:they do make the postage slightly more because of the thickness). I feel they are receiving something a little more special and a keepsake with one of these.These also can be bought at The Stampman

Thankyou for looking
Take Care

From Bracelet to Purse

Hi all-Hope you've all had a good week.Havent done much crafting myself this week,but i have managed to use the grunge Bracelet as handles on this purse.I knew Sophie would only wear it the once!lol. Now she is after the purse-Oh well i do have my uses sometimes,though this purse doesnt have 'Jane Norman' written on it(those who have daughters from 10 upwards will know what im talking about)!!
Anyhow im still enjoying playing with the grunge.The things you can do with it.!
For the shape of the purse i used my nestiblities Label 2(I think) and then put it through the cuttlebug again with an embossing folder.I coloured with Adirondack Pool and Purple Twilight ink pads.

I then added more grunge from the elements set and brads.
Have a great weekend xxx

A Grunge Bracelet

Well i just cant leave the grunge paper alone. This was actually going to be something else and perhaps still will, be so watch this space.But at the moment its a bracelet and my daughter is wearing it!!

I coloured with adirondack ink pads Purple Twilight and Pool.

Tuesday Taggers Distress Challenge.

This weeks Tuesday Taggers is to give a Distressed look.What better else could i use than the grungepaper im loving at the moment.Also it was an excuse to use my unopened cuttlebug
Firstly I used the largest size of the nestiblities label 2 for the shape to cut out the grungepaper then embossed it with a embossing folder.Coloured with distress inks Spiced Marmalade and the edges with Brushed Corduroy.For the flowers I drew three different sized circles and tore them for a rougher edge.I also embossed these too to give them a little more dimension and then coloured with Broken china.Eyelets and embellishments were from my stash.

Bye Debbiexx
