Dragonflies and Goldfish.

Good evening Followers, Friends and Fellow Bloggers,

Hope you are all having a good weekend.  Tonight I would like to share two cards with you which I made for Imagination Crafts   in 2013.   Both cards use the lovely lilypad stamp set.   The second card I shared with you in Oct. 2013, so for those of you who have not seen this card, I thought I would show it again.   These cards and the card in my last post all use the same stamp set but show how different the cards can look by changing the colours, using different stamps from the same set and different embellishments.    Ok off we go then !

Make a base card from white card stock.   Matt some black shiny card onto the white, (leaving no white border showing) then some gold card onto the black,  leaving a small border showing.   Take a piece of white card slightly smaller than the gold and colour the edges with the pink and green distress inks.   Matt this onto the gold card,  onto this matt some black card leaving a  border of the coloured card showing.

Take a further piece of white card slightly smaller than the black and colour it with the distress inks.   Using a black ink pad, stamp the fish around all four edges of the card.   Stamp another four fish onto a spare piece of white card and colour with the pink distress ink and mica powders.

Fix one fish in each corner of the card using silicone glue.   Fix this card to the base card.   Punch out a strip from black card using the Infinite loops  trim, Martha Stewart punch and fix this across the centre of the card.

Stamp the main image onto white card with a Versamark pad and heat emboss using black embossing powder.

Colour the border background with pink distress ink and paint the rest of the image with the ' brilliant'  mica powder set .   Cut out the inside of the border leaving the dragonflies and the lilypad in place.   Fix some gold card behind the lilypad and glue the image on top of the black loops across the centre of the base card.   Stamp the image twice more, paint, cut out and 3D onto the original image.

Well that is that card finished. Hope you like it.   Now for my previous card using the same stamp set.    For this card I decided to stick to different shades of blue with a little gold embossing powder thrown in for good measure lol.

 Should you wish to see how I made it and which Imagination Craft;s products I used, please scroll back to my older post of October 2013.   Many thanks once again for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope you feel it was worth it.   Take care of yourselves until my next post which will be my project for the Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog on the 1st of April at 8am sharp, providing my scheduling works lol!  so far it has but there's always a first time for everything !   Hope I'm not tempting providence saying this !  so see you all on the 1st. April.                    

                                                                 Love and rainbows,

In the Pink

Good afternoon, Fellow Bloggers, Friends and Visitors,

Hope this post finds you all well.  We are halfway through the week, and  the weekend is not that far away!   Soon the clocks will be put forward one hour which gives us an extra hour of daylight which will be lovely and hopefully we will see some warm, dry weather.    Today began with glorious sunshine but it changed rapidly and we are back to cold rainy weather !

Well on to a happier subject now - crafting !!  my favourite  past time.   I get so much satisfaction from making cards and I do enjoy hearing your thoughts on my creations.   Thank you so much for your encouraging comments and your visits to my blog.  I would like to think that my cards inspire you to take up this lovely hobby.   Well, as promised in my last post, here is another card made using the same Imagination Craft's  Lilypad Decoupage Stamp Set, which is one of my many favoutites from this craft company.   Ok, so off we go.

Make a base card from black card stock and onto this matt a smalle piece of green card.   Matt a further piece of black card on top of the green.

Take a piece of pink card and stamp the main image onto the centre using the black Stazon  ink pad.   Colour the image with  a brush, some water and the Imagination Craft's Mica Powders.

Using  a die-cutting machine, the Memory Box Tile die and white card,  cut out.    Colour this using the mica powders.   Cut out the background inside the border of the lilypad image and glue the tile die-cut behind it.

Fix the pink card to the left-hand side of the base card.   Using the leaf stem from the stamp set, stamp three stems across the top and three across the bottom of the card.   Paint the leaves with gold mica powder.   Punch out six tiny black circles and glue three to the top right and three to the bottom right of the main image.   Stamp the image twice more onto white card, paint, then 3D onto the original image.   Colour some white ribbon with a Promarker pen to match the green colour on the lilypad.   Add a ribbon bow to the top left of the card.

Cut a strip from the left-over tile die-cut and glue down the right-hand side of the base card.   Cut out and emboss the flowers using the Memory Box flower die.   Paint them with the gold and pink mica powders.
Glue the flowers down the right-hand side of the card and add a  pink rhinestone in the centre of each flower.

Well done all, we've finished !  hope you like the end result.   On my next post I will use the same stamp once more  but give the card a different look again to the last two.   Until then take care my friends.   See you soon.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                   Hugs   Jennifer xx

Lilypad Blues.

Hello  Lovelies,

Just thought I'd drop by again with another card.   Hope you have all had a good start to the new week.   We had a really cold start to the day today, a very hard frost, then we had beautiful blue skies and wall to wall sunshine and the temperature rose quite quickly.   All in all, a beautiful day.   The crocuses in the garden have been fully open with the warm sunshine and looking really pretty.

Well,  onto today's card.   I made this card for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts  and I used their very beautiful lily pad decoupage stamp set.   I just love this stamp, it is so pretty.   I decided to make this card in shades of blue instead of mixed colours, hope you like it.   Ok, off we go then, let's get started.

Make a base card from white card stock.   Take a piece of blue shiny card and lay the  stencil on top.   Spread the sparkle medium over the stencil using a spatula.   Scrape off the excess and return to the pot.   This sparkle medium is very economical to use, you need very little to get a  beautiful result.   Remove the stencil and when the sparkle medium is dry,  ( I tend to leave mine to dry naturally but if you have the heating on, you can put it on top of the radiator to dry)  cut the blue card to fit the white base card, leaving a small border of the white showing.

Take some white card, the square Marianne die and cut out and emboss using a die-cutting machine.   Take some white ribbon and colour it with the green distress ink.   Fix this across the centre of the blue card, securing it on the reverse of the card.   Fix this to the white base card.

Take more white card and using the black Stazon inkpad, stamp the main image a total of four times.   Colour the images with a paintbrush, water and distress inks.   Cut out the background behind the lily on one of the stamped images and glue this onto the die cut square, putting a piece of holographic card behind the aperture.   Fix the square to the centre of the base card.    Cut out the dragonflies and the lily pad and 3D them onto the original image.   Add a ribbon bow to the left hand side of the card. 

Well that's it finished.   If I say so myself, I was quite pleased with the end results.   It does make a big difference having great products to work with.

Thank you all for following my blog and posting such lovely comments, they mean a great deal to me.  Hope you have a good week.   See you all in a few days.

                                                                    Love and rainbows,

                                                                  Big Hugs   Jennifer xx

Humming Bird

Good afternoon my crafty followers, friends and visitors,

Here we are again and it's nearly the weekend.   These weeks are just flying by.   Hope you've all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Boy!  it has been really cold here today, very windy and we have had hailstones too !   The far hill is covered with snow !   I suppose the wind and showers (even if they are hailstones lol!)  is a little reassuring as it is March nearly April - March winds and April showers lol !!    Maybe the weather is back on course again lol!  Well enough about the depressing weather, I'm sure the Spring is just around the corner.    Onto today's card.   This I made using Imagination Craft's  beautiful humming bird stencil and gold shine sparkle medium.

Make a white base card.   Take a slightly smaller piece of white card  and lay the stencil on top.   Dab some Versamark through the design and remove the stencil with care.      Heat emboss using clear embossing  powder.    Punch out a 2" circle near the top of the card.   Put a piece of card covered with the gold shine sparkle medium behind the circle, for the sun.

Colour the background using distress inks.   Etch a pattern on the flowers, leaves and the humming bird with a sharp pointed tool( I used a pergammano tool) .   Rub distress inks over them so that the ink goes  into the etchings, then dry the ink off the embossing using a paper towel or tissue.   The ink should rub off the flowers etc.,  as the embossing acts as a resist.      Matt this onto the base card.

Die cut a leaf stem from white card, using a Memory box die.    Die cut a flower (a Marianne die)  from pale and deep pink paper and layer up,  then glue to the bottom left of the card.   Put a small amount of gold sparkle medium in the centre of the flower.

Well,  there we have it, another finished card.   I do hope you like it.   This is such a pretty stencil.
Enjoy your weekend everyone, take good care of yourseleves until my next post.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                        Jennifer xx.

Apple Blossom Butterflies

Good evening  Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Hope you've all had  a good weekend and are having a good week so far.   My weekend was a quiet one for a change and I managed to get quite a bit of crafting done whilst listening to Gary Barlow's latest CD which I love.    The weather has not been good, so no gardening done over the last few days, don't feel so guilty being in my craft room !!  well I couldn't garden in the rain, could I  ?   (any excuse lol!!)

Well onto tonight's card which I made for Sue and Harvey of  Imagination Craft's in January this year for  the Create and Craft Show on TV and uses their fabulous sparkle medium of course, one of my favourite products.    OK let's get started then !

Make a base card from black card stock and onto this, matt a slightly smaller piece of lemon card.   Lay the stencil on top of the blue linen patterned card and spread the three sparkle mediums over the design.   Spread  the colours in diagonal stripes across the card.   Remove stencil and leave the image to dry.

When dry, wrap some lilac ribbon down the left hand edge of the card and secure on the reverse.   Using the butterfly punch, punch out a butterfly in the bottom right corner of the linen card.   This punch does not punch out the butterfly completely but still leaves it attached to the card by the body and you can raise the wings.   This  is a Tonic  punch.   Add a ribbon bow.
Fix a piece of gold mirri card behind the punched out butterfy.   Now, matt this blue linen card onto the lemon card.  

Die cut three butterflies using the black card and the Memory Box butterfly die.   Glue these to the base card, fixing one of them to the punched out, raised butterfly in the right hand corner.

Well there we are, the card is now finished, quite a quick card to make if you don't have a lot of time.   I hope you like it, I would love to know what you think of it.   Take good care of yourselves until we meet again in a few days time.    Thank you all for your lovely comments, they are much appreciated.

                                                                 love and rainbows,

My Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog, Mid Month Inspiration creation.

A very good morning to all my lovely followers, friends and visitors,

 Another early post from me today.   It's that time again where I share my  mid month inspiration creation.   The theme for this month is 'Imagination in Bloom.'   I really hope my creation will help to inspire you to join in with this challenge.   If you own some Imagination Craft's   products, do give it a try.   Check out the Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog   for details of how to enter.   If you use Imagination Craft's products  you could win a fabulous £40 voucher to spend at Imagination Crafts..   It's worth a try lol ! just think what you could buy with £40 !!   and you get a lovely badge for your blog too.

Well onto my mid month creation, I hope you like this one.   I have used the clematis stamp set from Imagination Crafts and   I have used  chalk pastels just for a change, to colour this card.

Make a base card from white card stock.   Take some peach coloured paper, cut slightly smaller than the white card.   Put the peach paper and the woodgrain stencil through an embossing machine and emboss it.   Lay the stencil back onto the embossed peach paper and rub peach chalk pastels through the design.

Cut a piece of grey card, smaller than the white card and punch each corner with the EK Success corner punch.   Cut the peach paper so it fits into the cut, punched corners of the grey card but first wrap some green ribbon across the centre of the peach card, securing on the reverse.   Stamp the leaves around the edges and fix into the punched corners of the grey card.   Fix this to the white base card and add a green ribbon bow to the left-hand side.

Stamp the clematis stamp five times onto white card using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with black embossing powder.   Cut out the flowers and leaves only.   Colour these with the pastel chalks.

Cut a white oblong and matt a smaller grey oblong onto the white and 3D the flowers onto the grey oblong,  adding a small piece of white die-cut panel from Memory Box, to the bottom right-hand corner.

Cut out a grey oval and matt a smaller white oval onto the grey.   Stamp 'Happy Birthday' onto the white oval, using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with black embossing powder.   Fix this to the bottom left of the card.

Well that's my  mid month creation.    Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog, I really appreciate all your lovely comments.   It is nice to know there are many like-minded people out there in blogland who just like to make cards and enjoy doing so.   I hope my creations inspire you in some small way to enter this challenge.   We look forward to seeing all your cards.   You can check out more inspiration by my other team members here.

Have a great weekend, stay healthy and happy.   See you all again in  few days time.

Sunset Snowdrops

Hello Lovelies,

Well another lovely day,   wow!  three days in a row,  feels like Spring is in the air but I'm sure it won't last much longer before the wet stuff arrives again, ah well mustn't grumble.

Been to the hairdressers today and had my hair cut, I feel like a new woman lol !  I just hate it when it flops in my face, especially when I'm crafting lol.   Speaking of crafting, here is today's card which I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts   in September 2010 and uses their snowdrops  stamp which unfortunately is no longer available but you could use another snowdrop stamp in place of this one or indeed any other flower stamp.   It is coloured using Imagination Craft's  Inkadinks.   There are lots of lovely colours to choose from and they seem to last for ever !

Make a base card from black card stock.   Take a piece of cream card and punch all four corners using the Woodware corner punch,  glue the negative punched pieces to the corners of the black card.   Fix the cream card to the black base card.

Take a piece of cream card approximately four inches by four and three quarter inches and put a wash of the inkadinks over the card and create some 'hill' shapes on the bottom half of the card... When dry, stamp the snowdrops on the top of the painted card, using the Royal Purple Stazon pad.

Stamp the snowdrops a further three times onto some spare cream card.   Colour them with the paints from the Pearly Paint Palette which can be purchased here.   Cut out the snowdrops and 3D them onto the original stamped image, using silicone glue.

Punch out twelve small black flowers and put aside for the moment.   Matt the snowdrop image onto a piece of black card, leaving a tiny border of black showing.   Fix this to the centre of the cream card using double sided sticky tape.   Next glue the small black flowers around the snowdrop image, three on each corner.

Finally, add some coffee ice glitter glue to each flower centre and to the punched out corner flowers.   Add  a small amount of the glitter glue to the snowdrops.     That's it my friends, we're finished.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such lovely comments, they really mean a great deal to me.   I do answer every one.      See you all on Saturday with my mid month inspiration card for the Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog.   Would love you to join in.   You could win a £40 voucher to spend  at Imagination Craft's, all those lovely craft goodies to choose from !!    See you all on Saturday, I will be posting my card at 8am in the morning.    Take good care of yourselves until then.

                                                               Love and rainbows,

                                                                 Hugs   Jennifer xx.

Designer Watering Can

Hi there everyone,

I thought I would just pop an extra post in tonight for you.  What a beautiful day it has been again, hope it has been the same in your neck of the woods too!   It is amazing what a little sunshine can do isn't it.   Everything seems to look so much nicer.

The card I have for you tonight was made for Sue and Harvey way back in April of 2008.   Gosh it seems a long time ago lol !   The Imagination Craft's stamp I have used on this card is, unfortunately no longer available but you could use any large flower stamp instead.   The watering can shape was made using a Wendy Stenton template.   The flowers were painted with Twinkling H2 O s   and the clover leaf branch gold bead flowers were from Craft Creations.

Ok enough waffling, let's get started !

Cut out the watering can shape from duck egg blue card, using the template.   Using the teal Stazon pad, stamp the spirals randomly all over the watering can.   Using some cut 'n dry foam and the Stazon pad, rub around all the edges of the watering can.

Stamp one large flower and two medium flowers onto white card using a black Stazon pad and paint with the deep coral Twinkling H2o and the leaf of the larger flower in green.

When they are dry, cut them out.   Take the gold bead flowers and glue in position on the base card.   Fix the flowers in position using sticky foam pads.    Put some gold glitter glue on the flower centres.

Stamp and colour the inside back page the same as the front so when the card is stood up, you can see the same pattern and colour as the front of the card.

You can shape the flower petals by bending them around a pencil which makes them look more realistic.
Well that is that, hope you like it.   Hopefully we will all be needing watering cans soon to water our garden flowers when the weather gets warmer.  The sun has been really quite hot today, maybe we are in for a very hot summer lol !  we'll just have to wait and see won't we.   Well that's me, I'm logging off and going to bed lol !   as it is 11.15pm, which is early for me for a change.   Have to be up early in the morning, housework etc., to do then I'm off to the hairdresser's to get my hair cut,

So until my next post be healthy and happy and enjoy the sunshine.

                                                              Love and rainbows,

                                                                   Crafty Hugs,     Jennifer xx

Butterfly Frenzy

Good Monday evening All,

Well here we are again at the beginning of yet another week lol !  One week nearer to the Spring!   The weather here today has been absolutely glorious, warm, blue skies and lots of lovely sunshine.   It is amazing what a little sunshine can do for your mood lol !     Firstly I'd like to welcome my newest followers, Bernie Simmons, Hilary Depledge and Jane, thank you so much for following my blog.   I do hope you enjoy your visits, and to my exsting followers, thank you for your all your visits and lovely comments, I do appreciate you all.  I have spent a little time in the garden tidying up my pot plants outside the front of the house.   All the little crocuses were wide open in the sunlight,  looking very pretty.   Managed to fit in some crafting too.   I am making some cards for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft  for their next show on Create and Craft which I cannot show you yet,  I may give you a sneaky peak nearer the time of the next show.   Well, onto   today's  card which I made for Imagination Crafts  in May of 2011 I do hope you like it.    I used  Imagination mica powders and their lovely frilly butterfly stencil.  Let's begin shall we?

Make a base card from white card stock and onto this matt a smaller piece of purple card.   Next take a piece of white card, smaller than the purple and trim with a trimmer and the victorian blade.   Matt this onto the purple card.   Cut a piece of light green card and place the stencil on top.   Mix the white stencil paste with some Imagination Craft's Bluebell stencil paint and spread across the stencil.   Remove stencil and whilst the stencil  paste is still wet, sprinkle some light blue glitter over it, then leave to dry.

Wrap a piece of ribbon across the card from top to bottom on a slight angle and then fix this card to the base card,    Make a flower from different shades of purple, lilac and blue paper and glue the flower to the top left of the card.

Using some green card and the stencil, put through an embossing machine.   Remove stencil and cut out the large butterfly.    Go over the raised areas with an embossing pen and then brush over with mica powder.

Lay the butterfly on a piece of purple card and draw around the outside  of the butterfly, cutting slightly larger than the butterfly.   Matt the green butterfly onto the purple using sticky foam pads and fix to the base card, again with sticky foam pads.

Make another flower in the same way as for the main flower but this time make it much smaller and fix to the butterfly's body along with a small ribbon bow.   Lastly add some purple rhinestones to the background and add six tiny flowers to the butterfly's wings.

Well that's it finished.   Have a great week everyone and I hope this fabulous weather continues and you all get some of the lovely sunshine.   Take good care of yourselves until my next post in a few days time.

                                                                Love and rainbows,
                                                                       Big Hugs,

Sweet Lilies

Good afternoon Followers, Friends and Visitors,
Well here we are again, another weekend.   Where does the time go lol!   As I have done all my housework and lunch is over, I thought I would write up my post this afternoon whilst I have a little peace and quiet !   The weather is so dull in our neck of the woods today.   I don't think the temperature is all that low but the wind chill factor is making it feel really cold !   Having just said that, it is now snowing lol !!

Well onto today's card.   This was made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts   in June of 2012 and uses  their Summer Decoupage Stamp Range - Lily , Poinsettia Stencil and  the Nature Set of Mica Powders,  all of which can be purchased from here.     I forgot to mention my most favourite Imagination Craft's product - Antique Bronze Sparkle Medium, how could I forget that lol !!!   Ok. let's make a start shall we?

Make a base card from brown card stock and onto this matt some light blue card, leaving a border of brown showing.   Next take a piece of medium blue card and using the corner rounder punch, round off all four corners, then matt onto the light blue card.   Take the light orange coloured card and lay the stencil over it and spread the antique bronze sparkle medium over it, using a spatula.   Remove stencil and leave the image to dry.   Wash the stencil as soon as you can or it will be difficult to clean it once the sparkle medium has dried on.

When the image is dry, trim to fit the medium blue card, leaving a narrow border of the blue showing.   Round off all four corners with the corner punch.

Using the tag die, cut out and emboss the tag from blue card.  stamp 'Well Done' using a Versamark Pad and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.   Thread some gold ribbon through the tag and fix the ribbon across the bottom of the card, securing on the reverse.   Matt this onto the base card.

Using some pale orange card, stamp the lilies three times using Versamark and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.   Paint the images with Mica powders and water and when dry, cut out and 3D the lilies, keeping the scroll border on one of the images only.   Next matt the scroll onto some medium blue card, then onto a smaller piece of light blue card and lastly onto a smaller piece of brown card., then glue this to the left of centre on the base card..

Well that's it folks, hope you like it.   Since I began writing this post, we now have blue skies and bright sunshine lol!    from one extreme to the other in a matter of 10 minutes lol !! what is going on with the weather?     Below is one more picture, a close up of the lilies.

Once again, many thanks for your visits and comments, I love to hear what you think.   Take care until
my next post in a few days time.

                                                                Love and rainbows,

Summer Blossom Blues.

Hello Lovelies,

Hope you are all well and having a good day.   I thought I would do an early post today.   First I would like to say a big welcome to my newest blog follower, Debbie Fisher, hope you enjoy your visits to my blog.    The day started off really cold and damp but by lunch time the sun  came out.    Lovely to see the sunshine but it reminded me that my windows need a clean.   I have planters on my windowsills and our red squirrels are always burying nuts in them and by doing so, they scatter small particles of soil all over my windows lol !!   I don't mind too much as it is lovely to watch then at such close proximity.

Well onto today's card which I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's  in December 2011 and uses the summer blossom background stencil, Magi-Bond Glue and the Sentiments 'Thinking of You' stamp set.
This is a very quick card to make if you do not have much time to spare.   Let's get started shall we?

Cut a base card from some navy card stock and matt  a slightly smaller piece of light blue card onto the navy, leaving a narrow border of navy showing.    Take a piece of white card slightly smaller than the blue and place the stencil on top and using the distress inks, dusty concord and broken china, colour through the design using some cut n' dry foam.   Next go over the colours with some Versamark Ink.   Remove the stencil and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Fold the gold and spotted ribbon around the panel securing the ribbon on the reverse, then fix this panel to the base card.   Using the tag die and a die-cutting machine, cut out and emboss the tag.   Colour the tag with the distress inks.

Stamp 'Thinking of you' onto the tag first using the blue distress ink, then with the black inkpad, moving the stamp slightly to the right of the first image.   Fix the tag to the base card using Magi-Bond Glue and sticky foam pads.

Using the Marianne die, cut out and emboss four shapes (two small and two large).   Glue these to the base card.   Add  a ribbon bow to the bottom right coner and glue on the rhinstones.

There we are, voila! one finished card.    Hope you like it.    Thank you all for your visits and lovely comments, I read every one and I really appreciate them.   Until ny next post in a few days time, take good care of yourselves.

                                                               Love and rainbows,
