Tatty Teddy Post

Well both these cards are made using the free Tatty Teddy stamp in the Do Crafts Magazine. I got inspiration from the Magazine for the second one, the first one was a good idea in theory but not really sure if i like the look of it. Let me know what you think?

Mojo is definately returning slowly...

Well had quite a good card making week end, i made a few different cards. I wanted to start labelling what products i use but sadly most was from my stock and i just cannot remember. however i love the free Tatty Teddy stamp i got with the Do Crafts magazine :)

Please feel free to leave any comments of any suggestions on how i could change or improve on the cards above, i do really appreciate any ideas and support.

Think i lost my card making mojo there for a while....

Hi All,

Apologies for the delay between my posts, i kind of lost my card making mojo and the more i tried to make something, the more frustrated i became so i left it for a bit and eventually came up with these, please let me know what you think :)

Steampunk, slowly but surely improving

Well here are another two attempts at steam punk, must confess now i am starting to get into it and practice i can definitely see my cards improving. i think i find it difficult because of recent i have been  more into the CAS cards and now i find it hard to put a lot of detail or patterns on my cards.

well as always let me know what you think :)

First attempts at steampunk

Hi all,

Well i challenged myself to give steampunk a go, it found it quite tricky as i am not really one for victorian or vintage. I am happy with the second one but i dont think there is enough on the first. I am half way through a third and will add this when done. You will note that all of these are using Kenny K digital stamps, i love Kenny K's images

Sorry for the delay in posting

I have struggled to find the time and inspiration lately, i just didnt have any ideas coming and in the end i left things for a while and came back to it. I have posted my latest cards below, as always please let me know what you think :)

Embossing foil - well my attempt at least

Well i wanted to try something different and i came across a free kit from one of the hundreds of crafting magazines i buy. It contained purple foil which i then embossed using my Cuttlebug. I has a really nice affect (pain to photograph) and i am very happy with the way it turned out.

Looking for some inspiration...

Good evening,

I was wanting some suggestions for my next few cards, i would like to get out of my comfort zone and try a few different things as i am beginning to find my cards are just variations on the same theme.

So please feel free to offer any suggestions on colour, layout, style of card etc

Not the most girly girl but thought i would try pink and white

Now this one i must confess i am still just not sure about, i guess it didn't quite match up to the image in my head but considering it is not my usual colours i think it came out ok. I think sometimes i over think my cards or try to force the ideas and this is bad!

Glittery Snowflake

I must confess that this card came out so much better than i expected and i am very happy with it. I have a tendancy to be extremely critical with myself and my cards so its rare for me to feel this happy :)

Todays Cards - Please let me know what you think

I really like the CAS style of cards but a couple of my cards just seem to be lacking something. It is hard to get that simple but striking balance as they either look over done or missing something. Like anything i guess it it one of those things that you just have to practice!

This is a card i made a little while ago but wanted to submitted to the Cute Card Thursday blog challenge - My first ever one so lets hope this works

This is more along my normal style and although i am happy with the outcome there does seem to be something lacking that i just cannot be my finger on!

Ok - with this one i tried to veer away from my normal colour schemes

This one i created using a free DoCrafts CD i got on a magazine, i have been trying my hand at the digital side of things but still have a lot to earn!

Been away so long

Unfortunately i have not had time or ability to blog for a while so sadly this blog has been lacking, however i hope to remedy this from now on. I will be adding some of my recent cards, must confess i have tried to try a few things outside of my comfort zone and must confess i am not entirely sure on the outcome...i will let you decide!
