Flower Pig Apology!

Flower Pig apology!

Hi Everyone, today I have a lovely pig for you. LOL The card was made because, sometimes, I can be a little outspoken when I am feeling down in the dumps and boy have I had been in the “dumps” this last few weeks.

I felt that I had spoken out of turn one day this week to my lovely SIL, and decided to apologise with a card for her and chose this fabby image by Eastwind. The sentiment is my own. I thought it conveyed that I should have stopped to think before saying anything.

I coloured the pig in PS, however it was VERY pale after printing, so I went over it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I gave the frames around the papers a “stroke” in PS and then saved it all to print and cut with my Cameo.

It seems that she didn’t think I had spoken out of turn, told you she was lovely.

A Rocking Thank You

Hi Everyone, I’ve been trying to get my creative mind going with something different and saw a die that I thought I could replicate on my Silhouette! so started playing, time went on and on then I thought nah! this isn’t what I want, I wonder if someone has already done it? They had – HERE – and HERE so a print and cut card, although the stepper shape is out of white card and layers out of Paper Garden Projects papers, a swirley shape, flower layer, which I printed and cut twice and sentiment from the kit. I then printed small size papers from the same kit to punch the flowers out. I’m quite pleased with the end result for a first try, I think next time I may add more layers to the side. Now to print and cut again for the inside LOL.

So Cool

Hi Everyone, did you wonder where I’ve been? Yep! lacking greatly in the creating department, however I noticed a challenge that would do for me, as it would help with a card I had to do for a Great Niece and here it is.

I used a digital background to layer her and 3D’d the image, firstly I added a pinky “stroke” border in PS then sent it to print and cut in the Cameo, I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir, I hardly touched her face, which seems to work better for me. I added a treble cleft with her age on, that I put together in PS, printed onto matching card and glittered it.

Love Birds

Hi Everyone, I got a good day, I made 2 cards with another on the way LOL. This is the first one, it’s a challenge from Kathy D, She saw I was in trouble with my mojo and sent me the blue birds to get me going, she always succeeds, Bless her.

Anyhow, this is my interpretation of the blue birds, I was going to go with the colour, then saw the dots background paper and HAD to go with it. The heart is a PS shape, which I played with in blending mode and adding a gradient. The heart, birds and a duplicate of the bird and their branch. was saved, to use the print and cut on the Cameo. I 3D’d it onto the paper and added the extra cut bird for a higher layer. I also used Stickles on the digi confetti in the heart. Then added a leaf die to follow the branch on the image.

Time for Tea!

Hi Everyone, I am still struggling, I have read my 3rd book and was transported into another world again!

However I thought I had better start something or nothing will be achieved! So where to start? I had the Outlawz Sketch Challenge sketch, good start, as I had downloaded a couple of things from Paper Garden Projects I would use them, nothing would come together, so I looked at more and came across this pretty kit I hadn’t used for a long time and decided to go with it.

I laid it out in PS, cut and print on my Cameo and added a Tattered Lace die, which daringly, I added red tape and die cut a piece of card, which matched, perfectly, the pink in the flowers, then added clear embossing powder and thought it would add a nice gloss, – it would have, but it changed the colour of the card to a deep red! Here is the card with the card just die cut! however the card still looks red in the photo, it’s the light – honest! Oh! well it’s a start.

I thought I would show you some visitors we had in the garden yesterday, Long Tail Tits, new visitors for us, I hope they’ll come back. This was the only photo that was any good, as they were so quick back and fore to the fat balls.


Hi everyone, while mojo is absent, I have been reading, in fact 2 books, that I have really enjoyed. I am now onto my 3rd perhaps it’s the the continuous rain and darkness we have been having, making me feel like curling up and being warm and cosy, which I have been.

I found this on Elizabeth Dulemba’s blog which I thought suited me so well at this time.

However mojo still isn’t in attendance and I’m hoping it won’t be years before something pops into my head!

I decided to see if there may be something I haven’t shown you and this is what I found. A pine perfumed candle I decided to make a gift of, enhanced, I hope you’ll think, with an image by Paper Garden Products a scrap of ribbon I had, that fitted around the candle and a die, put all together and here it is. I should have shown it’s packing too, but forgot to take a photo of it.

I also did these fab containers in a tray and had to rush to finish them, packed them and forgot to show the finished result, seems this mojo thing was leaving me before Christmas! Here they are in the middle of painting them, I then added lovely paper and inked the edges, I was really pleased with the result. I can here your praise of these – rotflal.  I can see the candle in the photo too!

Scrub up!

Hi Everyone, I am starting a new blog format on WordPress https://daffodilcards.wordpress.com/  as I didn’t want to lose any followers with the Google thinkgy going on, (I’m not as popular as all of you – laughing -) and wondered which you like best, I am duplicating posts on each and would appreciate your input as to which you like best. I have to say Blogger has more options to edit the contents UNLESS I pay for more options on WordPress, comments gratefully received.

Today I have a sugar scrub, that I made for a few of the family as last minute presents. I found the instructions and labels HERE. It was easy to make, smelt gorgeous and was wonderful to use, the results were pretty amazing too, with soft, soft hands.
