I've heard this soooo many times we have used something once or twice and then we have leftovers and sometimes no idea what to do and want to do it!

I had an old Miss Empire range with papers and a full packet of collectables

I had made card for a call and that is it! Well re entry they went, I made 19 cards, which drove my husband mad cos I was soo close to 20. Need just one more!! Lol with the call  it was 20, but I was soo over it! 

Anyway, it is all paper and collectables with a touch of Walnut stain ink for the edges or Versafine onyx black for sentiments. Hope you enjoy,

Today’s card is for a friend who actually has a little tweetie tattoo.

She’s gone thru abit of a time of late and I haven’t been able to be around as much as I would like.

I was given lots of bits and piece from someone and in that package was a tweetie.

It is a pretty straight forward card.

I used nesting circles to make the background n sponged a little of walnut stain distress inks to give it some depth.

I used foam mount of different dimensions to add the tunnel effect n glued n mounted tweetie up.

The sentiment was from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips.

Very basic but hopefully you like it!

Thanks for stopping in.

Uniqolour Brush Tip Markers Review

Hello Everyone,

Welcome back to my blog.

Today I have a review of the Uniquely Creative Real Brush Markers.

They come either in a kit, I believe over 2 kits or you can buy them together. There is 27 brush tip markers with a water brush included. One tray seems to be abit more bright and the other more of a regal shade but even some on that tray are nice and vibrant!


I bought these, I am not that good, that a company would send me products and even if they did it would be my honest review.

I decided to swatch them all out as I didn't really have enough time to make a project and then in the end I waffled on for 26 minutes in the video. Still working out the ins and outs of getting videos off the phone. So we will include that later!

This piece of watercolour cardstock is roughly 18cm x 11cm. So some strange reason I made each rectangle 3/4 of an inch wide and 3cm deep! But you could just do 2 x 3cm or 3/4 x 1 1/4”. You do you!

My first look at the Markers are:

I think I like them! All the colours were true to life. That is some markers, for example red change to a real pink when you applied water. The Uniqolour stayed true.

Lovely brush tip which I love and the colours  were lovely.

I do have one thing I didn’t like, they don’t have a name on the markers or a number! That will bug me but other than that I think I will like them!

I think I am going to have some fun with these. I am really starting to love Uniquely Creative.

Thank you for stopping in and I will see you next time.

Friendship Card Hop

I'm sooo excited to be involved in this card hop. I didn't think I would be able to be involved with my studio being renovated and then with my children, and I also work in a school, went back to school.

Courtney Keeber has organised a blog hop and this is open to Youtube or blog. I was going to do a video and blog together but time got away from me then I first lost footage of making this card.

You can follow along and visit each person and share the love we have for card making. The next link will be below.

My card today was from September 2019 Uniquely Creative Positivity Mini Kit

As I said I lost footage and was going to redo the card but ran out of time.

In the kit they have the Flowing Dots stencil and I used this, first to add the dots and colour on the left of the panel. Once this was done I removed the stencil and, honestly I didn't like it! 
I am a lazy crafter, I don't do over ( hence I ran out of time to redo the card... cause I didn't want to redo a perfectly good card!) 
I used Dusty Concord and then went around the edges with Black Soot. I spritz it with a little bit of water for texture.

I stamped out both of the images included in the set, as I wanted to layer it up with foam dots and glue. You do not get the dies in this kit but it is super easy to cut it out. I was also abit sneaky and cut the large unopened flower off the image and tucked it in behind and the image and you have no idea, except that I just told you! Lol

Copics Used:
Flowers V28, 25, 22
Leaves YG63, G24, G21
Flower centre's Y08

The sentiment is included in the kit and you just need to cut out the sentiment you want!

Lastly I added a couple of dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops Sugared Almonds.

Please hop over to  Boryana Yankova and check out her card HERE !

Thank you for stopping by.

Another early Christmas

I coloured this image during the 30day coloring challenge but I wanted to show you what I did with it. Super simple card.

I just found some paper from Stampin Up that matched the colours. It is an old paper series called "See a Silhouette"

The main panel is cut to 14.1cm x 9.7cm
The designer series paper is cut to 14.4cm x 10

I decided there was no way I was going to try to colour the banner so I found a stamp from Kaisercraft called Frosted. Trimmed it up and it fitted perfectly! I used a distress marker in Black Soot to go around the edges to help it blend it well.
