Cute Card Thursday Meets Creative Expressions

Wahoo! I can't wait to show you my card today! It is a combined Creative Expressions and Cute Card Thursday DT make. This week we have a fabulous sketch over at CCT to work from and I've swapped it around just a tiny bit to make this semi-circle stand card. I've used the two folks driving stamps from the Creative Expressions Wrinkles Don't Hurt Stamp kit. For the sentiment…

I thought the lipstick…

Go With Your Heart

Hope you all had a good long weekend, did lots of fun relaxing and art making.

Wrinkles Don’t Hurt

A little mixed media project with stamps from Creative Expressions for today's post.  I fancied getting my fingers all painty but I also wanted to have a go with the fabulous 'No Lines' colouring technique that Zoe from Make It Crafty has come up with.

Grungy Altered Tags

Hi Guys, I've got a make for you today - Hurray! It is a recycled make for The Altered Element. I have a number of these cute little tags I got free from magazines, I've been meaning to alter them for a while.  Turning them from cute to grungy :) I started by covering the tags with a layer of gesso then painted it with…

Tea’s Up! Bring The Biccies

I drink a lot of tea, love the stuff so I usually have one or two of these around the flat: What to do with all that lovely cardboard? What to do? What to do? Oh I know! Make jewellery!
