Sentiment-Warm Christmas.
Background- Moon Baby.
Hi everyone! 

Ooooh, I am late popping in with my dream team blog post today but we've had a busy Mo and Mummy day today so I'm only just getting to my pooter to get this little cutie added to the blog!

I have had super fun merging a few goodies from the shop for this one ( all listed above under the first piccy!)

And here's the blingshot!!!! I really suck at capturing that blingy goodness! and a little candy cane shine too of course!!

I am so enjoying making little tree decorations this year. They look so cute and pretty and make a really quick little gifty something for those special people in your lives.

Right, I'm off for a bath and to get my pj's on! It's dark already here so I figure that a bath and pj's before tea is totally acceptable right?!!!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Best Tea-cher Ever...........

Doo Hickey 23 dies.
Morning all!!

I'm in for you today with a super sweet make thinking of all those 'almost the end of term and the children are so excited about Christmas, we've got reports to finish and the nativity plays to survive' teachers out there! aren't they just the best and so worth celebrating? I think so!!!!

And I had just the perfect stamp set to help me along!! the Magnolia Best Tea-cher Ever art stamp kit. It has absolutely everything in there you could need to make a card for an awesome teacher. I had some fun with her too, paper piecing her little mug and hair bow.

In the stamp kit, you also get these super sweet little teabag and hearts and kisses stamps. I used them to make a little background and then stamped and fussy cut the bigger one to make a little embellishment.

I used the Best Tea-cher Ever sentiment on a tag from my school-themed Doo Hickey set in my stash and popped it on the corner.

And as for the perfect die....well, look no further than the Roxstamps special Awesome die. I coloured it up in an ombre effect after cutting it and then gave it a good splodge of glitter pen before adding some glaze to it. I LOVE how it came out!!!

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx

Sing Joy.......

Good morning all! 

Today I'm sharing a make using the super sweet Sing Joy from Mo's Digital Pencil.

There is just something quite magical about christmassy makes isn't there? I love making christmas cards! I have a few more up my sleeve before the holiday period whooshes past me!!

And of course...we need that 'turned the blooming card every which way I could and faffed about forever tipping it different angles to make the glitter show up but could only get one teeny hint of it' photo too right???!!!!

Sister for sale!!........

Bella from Mo's Patreon Page.
Papers- Basic Gray Pyrus- Snow Pear and Almond leafed.

Good Morning all!

Now, I have to admit I am reaching for the coffee like it is heaven this morning after another night up with our Little Mo being unwell but there is no way I couldn't nip in and share the cuteness that is my notepad make!

I used Bethy's Wagon PNG set for this one. I used this gorgeous set because I wanted to put the beautiful little Bella freebie from Mo's Patreon Page in the cart!! I love, love, love a bit of merging. It's so much fun to watch the layers of your image all knit together to make something unique and sweet!

The papers are some of my delicious 'stroke only but girl you really need to use those' Basic Gray Pyrus papers. Oh man I do so love them. They really are golden oldies but so beautiful. I made the little flowers from the leftover scraps with my MFT flower dies.

Right, I need coffee and some breakfast to try and buzz myself alive! Mo is just getting himself dressed to try a little bit of breakfast but he is a stunning grey sort of colour so I don't know how far he will get with that bless him.

Let's Avo-cuddle!! .......

Morning peeps!!  

For my make today I chose to use the super sweet Let's Avocuddle art stamp kit. I adore this one! it's so sweet and the little avocado and flower head stamps included in the set are just perfect for stamping around the edge of your die-cut like I did here or making a fabulous backing paper of your own!!

The shape of the card and the gorgeous little leafy fronds and dragonfly all come from the stunning Magnolia stamps- The Vintage box fifth edition. To make the card base I just used a kraft precut card, placed my lacy card die so that the edges of the top could be seen over the top of my card and then ran it through my die cutting machine a few times until it had cut all the way through the 2 layers of the card base. 

For the heart-shaped layer that Tilda's image is sat on I used my heart die as a template and drew around the inside of it. Then I cut it out with my scissors and distressed the edges by sanding and then inking them.

Look how sweet that little dragonfly is! I die cut it 3 times with my patterned design paper and once with the kraft paper so I could layer it up and give the wings that dragonfly layer effect. It looks so pretty and delicate. The leafy branches are so lovely too. I cut them, coloured them in with my promarkers and then turned them over and gave the leaves a rub with my dry embossing tool to get them to pop out a bit before I glued them in place.

The 'Let's Avo-cuddle sentiment just makes me smile! It's so cute!! I used the little torn notepad die from my one of my Doo Hickey die sets. 

Thank you for popping in, Hugs Lou xx

Tiddly Inks challenge #231...Gift Tag Goodness!!

Dienamics Rustic Heart.

Good Morning all!!

It's time for a fun new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog and because we are heading into that magical season of giving thanks and gifts, this months challenge is...

Gift Tag Goodness!
so choose any Tiddly Inks image/stamp and make a tag to attach to a gift.
The tags can be any shape or size you like so just have fun with it.

(**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 
but you MUST use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

So for mine, I couldn't resist making a little shaker tag with some scrummy bones in for my little doggy pal!! I used the sweet little dog from the Mini and many friends clear stamp set. It's the cutest little pooch and just the right size for fitting on the MFT Tag Builder 5 tag.

For the little banner, I used one of the sentiment stamps from the  Pawfect Day clear stamp set. It fitted just perfectly too so it was clearly meant to be right?!!!

Let's take a closer peek at that cutie paws and my little bones cake topper sweets that worked so well for the shaker part!! too cute!!

I have another blog post coming up in a few mins so I need to get writing that and I'll see you all later!!! he he!!

Good morning all!! it's Lou in with a post for you today using the cutie pie, Kady.

I had a card to make for a special little lady who is going to become a big sister soon and she is so excited! 

For this inside, I used the bunny rabbit from Bronte Bits. I did a larger pink one of her and a smaller pink one for her new brother. This is the absolute joy of digital stamping!! you can get just what you need by resizing and a horizontal flip so they looked right at each other on the pop-up bit, too cute!!!

Right, I need to scoot! we have book learning to do today and I was sneaking in here whilst the little guy had a shower to start his day but now he's down so I need to shake a leg and get my 'we can do this' hat on for learning!!

Have a magical Monday everyone. Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Peeking Sloth....

Images- Peeking Sloth.
Good morning all!!

I hope you are all waking up to a magical monday! 

This morning I decided on having some good old merging fun with the super cute  Peeking Sloth. I just adore him. His sleepy, happy little face just makes my heart feel happy! and he is a good start for a monday when you aren't quite feeling up to speed and trying to teach your little guy trigonometry right??!!!!

That gorgeous cloudy sky is from Laura. I positioned it so that those dreamy clouds were just above his head. Then it was onto that lovely wall for him to peek over. The wall is from the stunning Autumn Entrance set.

I really enjoyed making this card this morning so I hope it makes you all smile!

Halloween bundle of fun!!.......

Morning peeps!!

I'm boo-ing in with a make for you today featuring the gorgeous Halloween Bundle instant download. You wouldn't believe the variety of bits that come in the download. I had the best fun putting a few different bits to use on this card.

I loved the little coffin and balloons! the coffin was just perfect for tucking behind my layers and then the little balloons popped up on some foam were just magical for some dimension.

And then there is the just-so delightful Black Cat Tilda from the Magnolia stamps Halloween pop up. I also masked her off so I could use the little window and the distressing style stamp on my image piece. I LOVE them!!! 

The last element I just had to get on my card was the black cat potion label! I couldn't believe how perfectly it went with Tilda! too cute! I added a little glossy accent on to the top of that to make the bottle a little bit more 'real'.

Thank you for peeking in!! Huge hugs Lou xxx
