All Distressed Butterfly

I'm a bit distressed today - well my ATC is! I've used one of my favourite Unity kits - Key to Joy available over at Make The Day Special. The background has been stamped and embossed with Tim Holtz Rangers Distress embossing powder on a Gesso treated collage background and finished with Rangers Distress inks.

Got a bit of a monster for you all today but he is a friendly monster, well, sort of friendly. Perhaps you better tiptoe around here today and just avoid making any sudden movements. That's right just scroll down carefully! See he is quite harmless really - whose coughing? Shhhh! Quick leave the room... It's Ok, he is still smiling! Phew This…

My Cute Stamp Skinny Invites

My Make The Day Special make this week is a little different,  I thought I would try experimenting with a different format by making some little skinny invite cards. They only measure 4 cm by 10.5cm (~ 1.5 inch by 4.1 inch) so very slender indeed! The My Cute Stamp Birthday kit is perfect for these little cards I thought. Ok so you would…


Born To Fly On A Friday

Hey Guy's got some Friday Flying to show you today, it is the DT make I did for Make The Day Special this week, this is the first chance I've had to show you it here.  I got all inky fingered for this one so I thought, seeing as it has a Nature theme it would be perfect for Hels' Sunday Stampers Challenge this week.…


Finishing Journal Pages

I haven't completed a journal page for ages, I've been making lots of backgrounds but not finishing the actual page so I decided to be brave and use up one of my backgrounds. Here is a page I've had in my head for a while now, probably from the first time I saw this stamp! The stamp is Suzi Blu Love Yourself and is available from Make The…


Mixing My Styles

A little light-hearted Springy ATC make today. For my Make The Day Special DT make this week I've used the vintage look stamps from the Unity and Cosmo Cricket De-Lovely Childhood Kit and matched them with a more contemporary kraft, fabric, button and Bakers Twine look.  Can you describe it as Contemporary Vintage? Do those two words cancel each other out?  Enjoy your contemporary vintage Tuesday! Kim


Twinkle On A Tuesday

Lots of twinkle in my Make The Day Special makes today, they are Twinchies made from card and fabric and decorated with stamps from the {Ippity} Moon Beam and Heart String and the Unity Wishes and Kisses. I've called them 'Creative Hearts and Stars'. The background was made by layering small pieces of calico fabric onto a piece of card with Sparkle Mod Podge.…


Dreaming Of You

It's Tuesday so that means it is a Make The Day Special make from me! Today I have an ATC using a stamp from one of the Unity Adventures in Happiness kits and it is reduced at the moment over in the shop. Perfect little Valentine's ATC :) Hope that your dreams come true today! Kim
