MFT – Sweet Succulents

MFT Sweet Succulents

Hi there, how’s your summer going?  Now school is out I will be posting once a week so here is a little card that I have made using the Sweet Succulents stamp set from My Favorite Things.  When ‘succulents’ stamps first start appearing I did wonder why would you want to make a card with these images!  However, the more cards I have seen – especially one’s that have been water-coloured – the more it made me kind of want a set for myself!  I chose this set because the pots are all separate images so you can mix the plants with whatever pot that you want.  You can get the dies to match but I just did some fussy cutting here.  I have coloured these images with Spectrum Aqua Markers.  The sentiment stamp is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps (no longer trading) and for the pop-up element inside the card I have used the Mama Elephant Pop-up Creative Cuts dies.

The card base was made with Lawn Fawn cardstock and the inside was paper from my stash.  The banner die is from Lawn Fawn too.


That’s all from me for this week! Thanks so much for stopping by.  Take care – Karen 🙂


Luna Animals … for Harry

Hi there!  I hope you had a great weekend – or – if you’re in the UK, are still enjoying the extra day for our May Bank Holiday 🙂  May is a busy month for birthday’s in our family so I’ll be sharing some of these over the next week or so, starting with this card that I’ve made for my nephew from my children.

I have used ‘Lunar Animals’ stamp set from Mama Elephant here, I love this cute set!  It was nice to get my Spectrum Aqua Marker’s out for a play to do this card.  I have also used: Lawn Fawn Flirty Frames and Dies, black cardstock, watercolour card, MME cardstock – Collectable and a Thicker Sticker.  The greetings were made on the computer.

That’s all from me for today, thanks for stopping by.  Take care – Karen 🙂

Fintastic Friends…

Best Fishes

Happy Friday!!!  I just thought I’d pop in with this card that I made before Christmas using Lawn Fawn’s Fintastic Friends stamps and dies.  I water-coloured them using my Spectrum Aqua Markers. I hadn’t used them for a while so it was nice to get them out for a play 🙂 I also used memory Box Stitched Rectangle Dies, Kaisercraft Banner Die, patterned paper is by Craft Asylum called Meadow Sweet and I used foam pads to give the fishy pals some dimension 🙂

I hope you have a great weekend, thanks for stopping for a peek 🙂  Take care – Karen 🙂
