Bushy Tail

Hi guys, it's time for another little inspiration over at 
this is one of the gorgeous images which Wendy released this month,
how cute is he/she?


I decided the image would look good in a woodland scene, so I printed it on a piece of card stock suitable for colouring with my copics,so after colourng it in, I then fussy cut around the body of the  squirrel so I could slip a tree die cut behind it,
I then simply added some die cut leaves here and there too,
My grand daughter has already claimed it as hers, lol
Don't forget we have a challenge going on on the All Dressed Up blog and also one on FaceBook, plus if you wish to see some more inspiration we are also on Pinterest,

Happy Crafting!!!

Mixed Media Box

Hi guys, I'm here today to show you a Mixed Media Box I have created using some of the fabulous products available at


I had the box in my stash just crying out to be altered, so first I began with adding some colour to the wooden box here and there, but mainly on the edges, blending into the middle,


Then  I did some stamping on the box with the worn harlequin stamp by Gummiapan, I love the distressed look on this stamp!! 


As you can see I stamped on the sides too, 
For  the top  display I took the Doodled Circles die by Gummiapan and cut a few layers in Kraft card stock, these I glued together which gives the effect of chipboard,
I glued this down then added some leaves using the Gummiapan Twig with berry right sided die, these I cut out of one of the Pion papers from the Songbirds Secret,


I then finished this off with  some handmade flowers and leaves  in Foamiran,


I finished off my box with these awesome metal feet and handle which come as a set and are a fantastic price, they are available in different styles and sizes too, do check them out!!!


Have a look at all the fabulous products Suha has in her fabulous online store, I think some would make fabulous Christmas Presents for a crafty friend, or why not treat yourself!!!!
Happy Crafting!!!

IT WAS MIDNIGHT!!!!

Hi guys, it's time for another challenge over at
this time it's to use a trim,
so ie: ribbon seam binding, lace, twine etc
We are kindly being sponsored by The Rubber Buggy
and seeing as it's nearly Halloween I couldn't resist using some of my Halloween stash!!


I've had these Magnolia Tilda's in my stash for years, but I still think they look fab!!
so after colouring them with my distress re-inkers I fussy cut them out, bending the legs forward on the sitting down one so she actually could sit down,


I also used the background stamp which I masked with an owl stamp both oldies by Magnolia too, these again I coloured with distress re-inkers, I added some lace trim around the outer edges of my easel card and added some tombstones and a scary tree cut with my Silhouette machine,
I then added a skull embellishment again from my stash,

The base section of my easel card, has my Tilda's of course and a coffin top which again I cut with my Silhouette, I couldn't resist adding another skull to this too,

I again added the same lace to this section as well as some flowers, spider and a pumpkin again from my stash,
The fabulous papers I used came from the Maja Design paper pad - Walking in the Forest from Swedish House Crafts, these are fabulous for Autumn based cards including Halloween as you can see,
As you can see I also added a fence die cut too,

I used some more trim on the removable tags, a little black ribbon and finally some twine,


  Then a Pumpkin charm again lurking in my stash!!! LOL

It's challenge time at.....

The theme is as always anything goes,
so why not get out your Foamiran and join us, we would love to see your foamiran flower creations,
there will be a top three and
you could be in with a chance to win  25 Euro to spend in the 14 Craft bar store

I have made a card for Christmas using some of the fabulous Foamiran, stencil, stamens, berries, and leaf type products all available over at the  14 Craft Bar shop,

So I used some of the fabulous papers from the UHK Gallery Frosty Morning 12" x 12" paper pad, this pad is full of fabulous patterns and colours and also  include some tags, one of which I've used on my card, this I fussy cut out and distressed the edges, to match my background papers,




I used one of the fabulous new stencils this time 06 to make my Poinsettia styled flowers using 012/ light grey Foamiran for the flower heads, these stencils are great as you just use them to trace around with a tooth pick or skewer and then cut them out with your scissors, you can cut out more then one at a time too by placing up to four layers  of Foamiran together, this is also  fab if you don't have a die cutting machine too, I added some colour on the edges of the petals with some Gallery oil pastels in  colour 540,


I added some of the gorgeous 2mm Pearl stamens 2/040 in the centre of the flowers after I glued the layers together, off setting the petals on each layer, then I finished off the flowers with 021 Green Foamiran for a Calyx type backing for my Poinsettias,


I then added some hand cut Holly leaves again from the same stencil using 018/Grass Green, I added some veins onto the cut out leaves using a skewer, then I added a little colour on the edges with some oil pastels and finally added some Snowtex too,
To finish off my card I added some of the lovely red Berries here and there and then I trimmed down one of the fabulous leaves 001, again adding some Snowtex here and there too, these leaves make great fillers for inbetween your flowers,











So don't forget to join us in our challenge,
