About Me

My photo

I am a stay at home mum of one gorgeous 4yr old boy, & he certainly keeps me on my toes. I have crafted in some shape or form all my life, I have always loved to draw & paint & I used to do custom murals, back when I had the time lol. I also crochet & scrapbook, but my biggest passions are card making & doing altered canvases. I have been selling my cards for 3yrs now & my canvases & plaques for about 2yrs. It still gives me a buzz that someone wants to buy something I have created.
I will be posting some examples of my work here but you can see & buy any of my work on my facebook business page, I hope you like it.

& this week we are sponsored by the brilliant

They of course have offered a prize for the lucky winner
Our theme this week is 
Use Kraft card or paper
& here is my make.

Now, I will confess I don't have any Kraft paper, sooooo I used the paper I had left over from wrapping my son's school books. I don't think it looks to bad. I stamped the edges with a little leaf stamp & mounted it onto brown card. I added some ribbon, handrolled roses & leaves. 
The flowers were also made from the paper. 
My image was coloured in promarkers before being mounted on brown card & I used a touch of green too.

First Christmas Card of the year. - With The Stamping Chef.

Ok, so I know as a crafter I am majorly late starting Christmas cards, but I now have the grand total of 
1 done lol. 
The fantastic image I have used is from 
The Stamping Chef & she is called Winter Wishes
She is just adorable & perfect for all the males you have cards to give to,
& so here is what I have done with her. 
My paper has been digitally embossed & recoloured to suit my card & I matted it onto black cardstock to make it pop. I cut out the latte cups & mounted them, along with my sentiment before adding some punched glittered black snowflakes.

I used a glue pad to stamp snowflakes around the bottom of my digi & brushed over it with mica powder.
The fabby image has been coloured with promarkers & mounted onto black. I then added glitter to the white parts of the santa suit.
So there you have it, my first, of many Christmas cards, thanks so much for visiting.

Promarkers used: 
Skin - coral, sunkissed pink, blush & baby pink for the cheeks.
Hair: Cool grey 2, 4, 5 & black.
Outfit: Shale, burgundy, cardinal red & berry. 
I added touches of ice grey 1 to the furry parts of her outfit.
Shoes: warm grey 2, 4, 5

Good morning all, it's time for another challenge from team B at
Just Inspirational Challenges
Our wonderful sponsor this week is
& of course there are some digis for the lucky winner.

The DT were given some wonderful images to use & our theme this week is
USE BRADS

& so here is my make xx


My card is a 6"x6" one, it has been matted onto silver mirri, I created the backing paper using punches in craftartist & added so digi marshmallows.
I also created my tag in craft artist, again using a punch to create it in the same papers as my bp.


I have used my promarkers to colour & added a touch of glitter to the wings, which have been done in soft pinks.

I used brads to attach the tag & the topper. It's a simple layout but I thought the digi was cute enough to pull it off.

The Stamping Chef - Zombified

Good morning all, it's unusual to see me posting on a Sunday morning but to celebrate the start of a new season in the States of The Walking Dead some of us DT girlies from 

Cover Photo
decided we had to have a play with The Perfect Digi
She is called Zombified & you can find her here
& if you would like to play with her, or any other image then there is a treat for you


Until the 14th October, you can get 25% off your order total using the above code.


We'd love to see some of your creations with her :)
& here is mine.



It was sooooo my very first zombie & I was like GULP lol, but I really really enjoyed it (once I found a colour combo I was happy with)


I printed out a digi paper & then stamped some splats onto it, I thought they looked like blood spats
I then die cut a frame & used it over a halloween type digi image. I wanted my image to be coming right out of the page.

I printed off some tombstones & added my sentiment (I love the bones of you) using craft artist.
The border I drew & cut out as I don't have the punch, boo hoo lol

Here you can see where she is coming out of the frame. I also cropped her to fit.

The colour combo I finally settled on for her skin was umber, khaki & almond & I went over it all with warm grey 2. The hair was olive green, green grey & warm grey 1.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my Zombified :)
