Cheeky Cherry Pie

It’s Saturday! Wahoo and I’m running just a touch late with my Quixotic Paperie post today. Usually I like to have my post all scheduled and ready to go in the morning but this little lady was still uncoloured and the layers unstuck this morning.

But I’m here now and I’ve got a Little Cheeky Cherry for you today and she uses all sorts of goodies you can find over at Quixotic Paperie.

She is my favourite of the Greeting Farm Cheeky range – Cheeky Cherry Pie. I’ve coloured her with pencils and layered her up with lots of fabric and paper textures.

The papers are from the Prima Melody collection and I’ve got my Shimmez Spritz out and added some sparkle. You might like to know that all the Shimmerz paints are on special offer at the moment.

You might also recognise the background to the stamp? It’s one of the Artistic Outpost Ephemeral Backgrounds stamps – see how versatile these stamps are πŸ™‚ Love them, you might have noticed that!

Right catch you guys later, have a good Saturday.

Happy crafting.

Dinosaurs On Me Blog Again!

Yep it’s me with my dinosaurs again! Got a little commission birthday card using the super cute Oliver from the Oliver and Amelia Happy Days set from the Greeting Farm that Elaine has available at Quixotic Paperie.

It is a very minimalistic card using Kraft card from my stash, luckily Elaine also has some Bazzill Kraft card available at the shop.

I’ve also used some torn up glassine envelopes and doodled little Dino prints with a ZIG Vellum Writer. Oliver and his Dino friends are all coloured with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens.

Before I go you might like to know that Elaine has got some of the gorgeous Make It Crafty background stamps new in at Quixotic Paperie, I thought I would give you a small peek at them:

Have a great weekend.

Cute Card Thursday – Challenge 131

Hello my lovelies, I think you are going to guess from my card today, and some of my more recent cards, that I am in a real Goth-Emo mood at the moment.

So how about cute Emo? Is that possible? Well this one is my DT make for this week’s Cute Card Thursday which is a lovely sketch from Leann.

When I first saw The Greeting Farm Sweet N Toxic stamp kit I fell in lurve and have been watching the stock in Quixotic Paperie with longing until I could bear it no longer – so weak! LOL! All the sparkly ‘silver lining’ was added with Viva Decor Glitter Liner Holo Irridescent.

Have fun with this lovely sketch this week!

TGF Royal Battle News – Week 3

Something a little different from me today and something a little out of my comfort zone LOL!

The Quixotic Stampers (Elaine, Emma, Rowena and me) are through to round 3 of the TGF Royal Battle thanks to Emma and your wonderful votes πŸ™‚ Thank you all for your support.

Well, this week the challenge is a Scrapbook page and it fell to me to have a go! Oh Boy! Not something I do a lot of as you know!

I borrowed the lovely photograph from Elaine for this layout and matched it with paper from October Afternoon and stamps from The Greeting Farm.


I stamped out the clouds and then masked them and sponged on some pearlescent ink. Then I stamped the balloon and paper pieced it. The lettering was printed and then I doodled on them.



I love mixing fabric and paper and the flowers are made from fabric and I’ve added a bit of stitching to the layout as well πŸ™‚
I would love you forever if you could cast your vote on my make by commenting in TGF forum and help the Quixotic Stampers to get through to the next round, I would hate to be the one that lets the girls down!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

I’ve had time to play with my Ms Anya stamps. I thought that I would join in with the challenge over at Creative Card Crew which this week is about embossing. I’ve embossed the pearlescent tulips with my Cuttlebug and added some hand-stitching and glitter glue to finish the card. Ms Anya is coloured with my Copics and promarkers.

I’ve been completely thrown by the bank holiday. I thought it was Tuesday today!



Tasha from the Creative Card Crew has a fab game running at the mo with some totally yummy candy including the much sort after Copic pens and other lovely crafty stuff. So to find out how to join in pop along to Millie’s Magical Moments.
