Darlin' Duckie!

A better day today....the sun is out and my headache is gone so I'm trying to catch up on all my jobs both boring everyday ones and crafting ones! I made this card a few days ago using one of my new Whipper Snapper stamps and thought I would have a go at the My Paperworld sketch challenge at the same time. This is the sketch......









and this is my card......



I do love Whipper Snapper stamps and am just building up my collection a bit more! The cute little chap has been coloured with Prismas and Sansodor (before I spilled the whole bottle!) and I've added some Glamour Dust to the flowers for a little bit of sparkle. The sentiment is from the Just Hatched set from Papertrey Ink. Paper is the Flower Retro from Papermania and Doodlebug, cardstock is from Bazzill as are the flowers and the sticky gems are Papermania.

The Plumber is calling later and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the part he has got is going to work, otherwise it is going to be VERY expensive. For some reason, and I didn't know it when it was fitted, I seem to have a "one off" kind of a toilet which is the reason why it is so difficult to locate the parts!! Off to tidy up the house now and then I hope to finally get around to catching up on my blogging.

Hi Jo

Glad to hear your headache is better and the plumber is coming. Love the card it is so spring like just like today. I can't believe the sun is shining. Have to say I do like those Whipper Snapper stamps, have yet to buy any. I'll have to start saving.

oh my word thats so cute! wtg!

and did you know theres a new 'law' that says when you've had a nasty headache you need a full day to recover and the only way to do that is to craft and NOT to do housework, housework fights the crafting mojo ya see and so you can't recover properly :) pmsl.

glad you're feeling better, take care xx

he's cute. I'm paranoid about spilling sansodor so I pour small amounts into shallow pot so I can't knock it over now (used to have varnish remover pads in it which I washed out) x

AMD Samples - Sending You Birthday Blooms

I have another sample to show today from the Create and Craft TV shows - this time a blue one!

I started with a  5" x 7" scalloped card base and chose three sheets of paper from the blue Garden Blooms pad which I then tore and distressed the edges, inking with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (my favourite!) and then layering them onto a piece of pastel blue double glitz card which had been cut to size with the bottom corners rounded.  
I then took one of the blue postcards and stamped the sentiment in blue on it and of course, inked and shaped the edges!  I then applied Inka Gold to one of the frames from the Shadowbox Kit and glued it over the sentiment.
I then proceeded to arrange a selection of flowers and leaves on top of some natural fibre on the top of the card and also inserted a cheeky little heart!  I dabbed on glue gel to the flowers, leaves and heart and edges of the card and covered with Ice Crystals.
To finish, I cut one of the blue inserts down to size for the inside o…

AMD Samples - Bird on Branch Card

I'm very late posting these samples!  A little while ago, being part of the Design Team for Anna Marie Designs, I had to provide samples for four shows on Create and Craft - this was very exciting for me as I've never had my work shown on TV before.  
This is the first sample I am showing today.  All the products used are from Anna Marie Designs, just click on the links and it should take you to the product in the shop.



I started with an 8" x 8" Mont Blanc card blank and added a couple of layers of the different papers from the new Garden Bloom 12" x 12" pink pad, roughing up the edges and inking them with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I then added more layers with scraps of the same paper pad and the Garden Bloom tags and postcards in the same colour, again inking the edges.
Before assembling the card I took a few of AMD small MDF shapes, namely, a branch, lovebird, birdhouse and sentiment tag.  I covered the bird in Ceramic Effect and then added Crushed Ice.…

AMD Samples - Pink Notebook

This is the final sample I have to show and have made something quite simple.


This notebook is made from three pieces of greyboard.  I am sorry but I forgot to measure it when I made it, however, if you start with the size of notepad you are going to use and add about an inch around it, that will give you the measurements for the front and back piece.  You then just need to cut a thin piece for the spine which should be the same length as the back and front - hope that makes sense!
I covered my greyboard with a piece of pink double glitz card and then layered that with pattered paper from the pink Garden Blooms pad.  I then die cut the letters to spell out notes and added some dots around them with a paint pen.
Again, I covered the inside with patterned paper, leaving a slit for the pad to be inserted.  I cut a piece of the pattered paper and scored around three of the edges to make a pocket and then glued it to the inside.  Before fixing down the patterned paper to the inside cover, pos…
