New makes!!

Evening everyone.

Ive been playing with all the bits I bought in Birmingham yesterday, here are two makes I did.

This first card I made with the inkylicious splatter circle. I added various colour inks and sprayed water onto it to blend it all together before stamping it onto the paper. I then added the sentiment and butterflies and embossed them in white. I layered the image onto pink paper and added pearls into the various corners. 

This next card I made the heart on parchment using the parchment in the groovi at clarity stamps starter set. I used a heart stamp and embossing folder from a magazine I had as a free gift, I stamped and embossed the heart in white then embossed the blue card with the embossing folder. i added some colour and backed onto flowered paper and added stones and a bow.

Thank you for looking and I hope you will leave me some feedback. 
Take care

Marci hey cupcake!!!

Hi everyone,

Its been a very long while since I posted here. I haven't managed to do any crafting for a long time but now I have started the happy road back to crafting.

Today ive been doing a colouring class by This class is linked through you tube if you search for kit and clowder the class is called colouring with copic and alcohol markers.

The video is linked to using this stamp sold on

The video uses copic markers, spectrum noir markers, promarkers and a number of other brands, alyce has broken down the markers for the different brands underneath the link for the you tube video so you can use her colour combination or use your own if you are confident with the markers and blends.

I followed the video and I would love to know what you guys think of my attempt at colouring this image, any feedback I would be very grateful for as I am new to colouring with alcohol markers. 

I am much happier with the hair on my second practice image but I like the different clothing combinations on both outfits.

thanks for reading

come back soon
take care

Paper haul #1

Hi guys so this is to show off my newest subscription which is the paper haul box.  you can find them at craftycreatives. Com where they also do another box which is more random crafting I think. I saw one post where they made sock puppets which is so amazing :-). 
Anyway so this is my box and it costs £ 10 per month plus p&p but I really like all the random little bits you get inside they are all very quirky and this theme is like a retro theme which I really like.
Get yourself over and get subscribing guys
Thanks for now

Mi ran DT call

hi guys hope you are all ok today.

so when i heard that there was a DT call for Art by miran i just had to take a chance as i would love this oppertunity.

so this post is my newest creation using miss sunshine by mi ran jung, i love love love this stamp. i was looking through the etsy store the other day and this one just jumped out at me. i love all of mirans designs they are so amazing and in honesty these images are one of the reasons i decided to get better with my colouring and knuckle down to my kit and clowder colouring classes, which are progressing.

why i want to join the DT
well where do i begin, i am part of the treasured times rubber stamps design team and we all love her images and the fight is on whenever a new design comes up as to who geets to use the latest mi ran stamps for the current challenge. the last few times ive been very lucky to get a chance to use these or to pick them as a second design for the challenge as they are just far to amazing to pass up. I would love to get the chance to work with these designs so much more and build up my coloring and card making skills to a new level as some of the designs i see pop up on facebook etc are breathtaking and thats how i want people to see my designs.

current design teams
At present i am on the design team for treasured times rubber stamps. This is my first design team and i have love the experience so far this is the main reason i want to branch out as i love the girls on TT so much i would love to expand and meet new people and learn and share knowledge.

without me waffling any further ;-) here is my design, (i do have a couple other on my blog to if you would like to take a look)

i have found myself a great little stand and camera now so my pictures ive found are much better. like this one :-)

This design was coloured using my spectrum noir pens then mounted onto purple pearl card as well as all the selections of colours i decided to go with. i actually love the purple and yellow theme i decided on for this and i think it matches up really well even though i didnt think these colours would go originally.

thank you so much for looking at my blog today.
hope to see you soon
