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

easter blog creations!!!

hi everyone. hope you have all visited the blog hop and had a look at all the ladies amazing creations.

this is my chance to show off my creations. i had such a hard time choosing which stamps to work with this time as they are all amazing for this release. i narrowed it down to two so i decided to make two creations for this release.

so here they are....... this first design is using a stamp by mi ran jung and i think all her images are so beautiful they are such a pleasure to colour.
 this second design is using a stamp by elisabeth bell. this stamp i think is so amazingly cute i love her style of drawing and again this one was also a pleasure to colour i love both of my designs.
thank you so much for looking and i hope you will leave me a little bit of love.

take care

sweet christmas!!

Hi everyone. I know Christmas is over and i hope you all had a lovely time.

I wanted to share with you a design I created for a christmas card using Sweet Christmas as shown here
I love this stamp. they are so cute and I loved working with this image to create one of my Christmas cards and so here is my creation.

I created this card by colouring the image using my spectrum noir pens. I then printed off the background paper from a cd I have, I added a red background to the image and the backing paper then I added the ribbon and the flowers (the flowers I decorated the centres with pearl beads I had in my stash)
I hope you like my creation and love this stamp as much as I do I think it is a great one to add to your collection.

See you all soon
