Magical Teacup

Hello.  Welcome.  Inspired by tea and cupcakes and small worlds.  


I was inspired by Cupcake Inspirations 116



I cut my tag using Stamplorations large Luggage Tag die from green card.  I added a strip of white card stenciled with Stamplorations stencil and Mowed Lawn distress ink.  I stamped the teacup from Unity's 2/17 KOTM, coloured with distress inks and fussy cut.  I stamped Rubber Dance happy birthday sentiment on shrink plastic, coloured with Mowed Lawn distress, cut with the smallest Stamplorations luggage tag and skrunk it.

Can't Beat A Cup Of Keemun

Hello.  Welcome.  So, in case you missed it, the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on and I am finally joining the party.  



I used a gold base card and cut Poppystamps Diamond Background from green pp.  I removed some of the negative cuts.  I cut Poppystamps Teapot stack from gold card and paper pieced with floral paper.  The sentiment is a Stamploration die cut.

Coming Of Age

Hello.  Welcome.  Here in Scandanavia confirmation season is fast approaching, so I decided to make a male confirmations card.  I am still on black and white and I quite like the look.



I've used a white card base and added a panel that I die cut with Stamplorations Crazy Double Stitched rectangle die.  I stamped the panel with a Paperartsy postcard stamp and embossed with black.  I cut a large cog from white card using Spellbinders cog die and stamped the sentiment from Kort og Godt and inked the edges of the cog to give it a bit of a grungy feel.  I stamped the boy from the same Kort og Godt set, fussy cut him and added him to the card.

Missing Persons

Hello.  Welcome.  I am enjoying the inspiration supplied by Lost Coast Portal to Creativity to work in black and white.  From the simple to the complex the visual and textural possibilities are striking and stimulating.  I went very CAS with this one.  And black and white, of course


I used stamps from Stamplorations Born to Roam set and white embossing on a black card.  Uhhh, yep, that just about covers it.

Umbrella Required

Hello.  Welcome.  I like to join the Korthobby challenge, but this month the theme was Steampunk, which isn't my thing really.  But then again, sometimes it's good to get out of your comfort zone.....



For my kraft panel I stamped various Paperartsy stamps with Frayed Burlap distress ink and then did some selective cutting with Spellbinders Cogs dies.  I die cut Sizzix Umbrella Man from black handmade paper.  



I combined these two metal charms from Korthobby and added some small steampunk images from Docraft patterned paper and glossy accents into the frames.

The Three Ages of Cat

Hello.  Welcome.  Our cat was 19, going on twenty.  Never met such a wise old queen.  My man has had her since she was a tiny meow.  She has lived in this house longer than me.  She will be missed. 



I made three ATC's in black and white using Lost Coast's Happy Cat and Repeat Impressions Tswana Pattern for the background.  The cats were stamped and embossed, black on white, white on black and black on black, and fussy cut.
