Flip Flop Critters in the Forest…

flip-flop-critters

Hello there!  Today I have a cute little critter card to share.  I used the MFT Flop Card Circle Die-namics  die to create the flip-flop part and the stamps and co-ordinating dies are from Lawn Fawn called Critters in the Forest. The plain cardstock is from my stash and the plaid is from Lawn Fawn again – Perfectly Plaid Fall.  The circle elements are Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Circle Die and I also used Lawn Fawn’s Cross Stitched Rectangle die.  As always I used my Spectrum Noirs to colour.

I have only used this flip-flop die a couple of times so I thought it was about time it came out again for an airing!

That’s all from me for this week.  Thanks for popping by today, take care – Karen 🙂

Mama Elephant – Lunar Animals

lunar-animals-windows-3

Hi, thanks for stopping by today 🙂  I am sharing 2 cards that I made in December for my sister’s twin niece’s.  I used Mama Elephant’s ‘Lunar Animals’ stamps and dies – these little characters are so cute! This was a really easy card to make as I just had to colour these critter’s and pop them in the windows that I’d created using My Favorite Things Inside and Outside Stitched Diagnol Square dies.

Both cards were the same design basically,  I just used different animals for each of the cards and a different colour scheme.

Other supplies used: Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Die and the following papers – Perfectly Plaid, Perfectly Plaid Fall and Let’s Polka in the Meadow. The gift and balloon stamps are also from a Lawn Fawn set – I think it was Party Animals!  Belle and Boo enamel dots, Spectrum Noirs and twine.

That’s all from me for this week.  Thanks again for popping by, take care – Karen 🙂

Manana Llama…..

Hello and a Very Happy New Year to you!  I really hope that you had a great Christmas and are now getting into the swing of a new year and old routines!

Today I am sharing 3 cards that I have made using the ‘Llama Love’ stamp and dies from My Favorite Things.  I’m finding this a very useful set at the moment with regards to making cards for men although obviously they’re great for women’s cards too 🙂

The first card above is for my brother-in-Law from my Mum and Dad.  I love the faces on these llama’s – they’re very comical! The card below is for a friend of mine and the last one is for my cousin’s son.

Well, that’s my first post for this year!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

“Wishing you a Very Happy Christmas”…

happy-holidays-penguin

Hello!  Well, we’re nearly there but are you actually ready yet?!  We have a few things to do and of course the BIG Christmas food shop but apart from that things are on track 🙂  The past week has been a bit up and down though as my son caught the dreaded sickness bug that’s doing the rounds.  As soon as he said ‘Orlaith was sick at school today’ I knew it was only a matter of time that he would succumb 😦  He’s getting back to his old self now so I’m keeping my finger’s crossed that my daughter doesn’t get it for Christmas!

Anyways, enough about yukky bugs, here’s the last card that I will be sharing this year!  This stamp set is called Winter Penguin from Lawn Fawn, I also used it’s corresponding die. Other items used were; Lawn Fawn Eveyday Sentiment Banner Die, Lawn Fawn Forest Border and Snowy Backdrop Die. Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene Builder Die, MFT Inside and Outside Diagnol Stitched Square Die, MFT Watercolour Brights papers, Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka in the Dark papers, Spectrum Noirs and a Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad.

Well, that’s all from me for today and indeed this year.  I just want to say thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the past year and also for all the lovely, kind comments that you leave – they are so appreciated 🙂   I really hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful, happy and healthy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Everyone!

Hi there!  I hope you’re well and enjoying this very special time of the year 🙂  Here is another quick post this week!  I thought I had blogged this card before but I have looked through previous posts and  I can’t find it – so here it is now! (If I have missed it and you have seen it before – I apologise!  Bear with me!). I have used Lawn Fawn’s Winter Alpaca stamps and dies here along with their Forest Border Die, Snowy Background Die and Let’s Bokeh papers.  I also used Spellbinders circle and banner dies, Spectrum Noirs and the star die is from Clearly Besotted. The sentiment is from another Lawn Fawn set – Winter Penguin.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Take care and enjoy your week – Karen 🙂

 

 

Scalloped Christmas Treat Boxes…

scalloped-treat-box

Hi there!  The Big Day is fast approaching and I’m nowhere near finished with my preparations!  Never mind, I’m sure it will all come together soon!!!  Anyways, today it’s a quick share from me.  These are a couple of gift boxes I have made which will have money inside.  I love this Scalloped Treat Box Die from Lawn Fawn – it’s so easy to put together and they’re so much fun to decorate!  Apparently you can fit a gift card in one of these which is good to know, or you could just fill it with some mini treats!

I also used: Lawn Fawn – Perfectly Plaid Christmas papers,  Lawn Fawn Forest Border Die,  circle punch, twine, Memento inkpads – Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug and Summer Sky. Mama Elephant – Mini Messages stamps and dies, Mama Elephant – Lunar Animals stamps and dies, Avery Elle – Happy Howlidays stamps and Spectrum Noirs.

I hope your Christmas preparations are going well?  I’m feeling a lot more festive now that we have our decorations up 🙂

That’s all from me for this week.  Take care and enjoy the rest of your week – Karen 🙂

‘Thank You’ Kitty…

thank-you-kitty-2

Hi there from me on this the last day of November!  Where has this year gone? – too fast that’s all I know!  Today I’m sharing this card that I made for my Mum and Dad for looking after my cats while we were on holiday in October.  I’m lucky that they only live about 5 minutes away in the car so they get to cat-sit when we are away!

I have used an Anna Griffin kit here called ‘Fifi and Fido’ which I thought would be fitting for a card for this occasion! The papers on this card have glitter on them as does the 3D cat sticker – I’m not sure if it’s showing up well in this picture though. I have also used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangle Frame Dies and a Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackable Die. The sentiment is by Altenew which I got free in a magazine a while ago, and the twine is from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week.  Take care – Karen 🙂
