An artsy style Birthday

I love this super cute easel board/clipboard die from reverse confetti, its super cute and I can't wait to do more with it.  The stamped image is from Technique Tuesday as are the happy birthday dies.

So I started with a rough wash of distress inks.  I then stamped dots over the ink wash.

Die cut and added the dies over the wash section, added the happy birthday diecuts and was nearly finished.
SOme cute little additions to this card were using crystal effects on the water section of the water in the vase, white gel pen to highlight the easel board, and finally, the little black dot over the "i" in birthday was made using ranger black enamel (I love this product)

Cute isn't it?  I just coloured the flowers in roughly with distress markers, it didn't need to be perfect as that wasn't the look I was going for.

Thats it for now

Today I made a card...

My mojo has most definitely taken a long holiday of late, since leaving Stampin' up! last December I really have just felt like not doing anything much at all.  Every now and then I get the urge to ink up a stamp, I have even purchased a set from Penny Black which I used  on todays card, and a couple of dies, but really haven't been motivated to use them.

So this card is a really really simple card, with only the sentiment stamped, but I do intend to give it to my wonderful hubby, he puts up with a lot lol.

I hope wherever you are in the world your day today is a good one!

I followed the sketch over at mojo monday for this card, its a sketch i have used before and really liked so worked perfectly for a quick card today.

Cardstock, papers, ribbon and candy dots are Stampin' Up!
Circle dies are spellbinders nesties
hearts dies are reverse confetti
sentiment stamps are Penny Black - check out these they are amazing, and the best thing is favourite is spelled with a "u" in it - yay!!!  I really love these stamps so I just had to share.

have a wonderful day!

Happy Mothers Day...

Black embossing on clear acetate sheeting to create the "mason jar"

Just stopping in to wish all the mums including furbaby mums a very happy mothers day.

Being a mum to Harry is my most rewarding role, I love being his mum, he is a beautiful kid, so thoughtful, loving and generally an all round fantastic kid!  I am so very lucky!

I do have a card or two to share with you to celebrate the occasion

White embossed flower on vellum, watercoloured

 the jar is from the retired preserves stamp set and matching framelits.
Sentiment is from teeny tiny sentiments.

and this next one I CASED from here using stamps and stuff I had on hand, none of which were the same as the original gorgeous card

 Have a wonderful day everyone
