Card Makin Mamas - Anything Goes

Well I have officially lost and found my mojo several times lately.  I have started colouring things, given up and started again too many times to think of.   Finally I came up with something worthy of sharing for the Card Makin Mama's anything goes challenge this fortnight.  Have you been to the blog to see whats happening?


This week we are sponsored by Squiggle Stamps



 who are generously giving a mystery digi bundle prize to our Anything Goes winner.


As I lost my mojo, I let the rest of the Card Makin Mama's show their brilliance with the Squiggle Stamp images, I did however try my hand at paper piecing (then ruined the project when putting it together!).  I picked myself up yesterday and eventually came up with something.. FINALLY!!


This is using a discontinued Ticked Pink Rubber Stamp that I picked up when they had a huge closing down sale last year.    All that Scraps has the images now, be sure to check them out if you fancy some alternate images for your collection.


I thought I would start including my copic colours in my Blog posts, for two reasons.  Just incase someone wants to copy a colour combo and also so I can remember what I used in the future.


Hair:- BV00,02,04,08 and 100

Top and Socks, Eyes YR14,24,26, Y31, E17

Shoes and Shorts and Headband:- B91,93,95,97,99

I just the spider web on the Blackcat Cougar and then made it shine with black liquid pearls, I also cut some baby spiders on the cougar and added glossy accents to make them pop slightly.

Card Makin Mamas are going spooky

Hi Everyone,
Another day in paradise in Blue Mountains Australia.. where its trying really hard to get warm and failing.  
I spent ages crafting yesterday and created a layout and a card project for Kaszazz that I hope will become part of the Kaszazz world.  Fingers crossed.   Here is the layout and a matching card that was added with left over cardstock.
Now just to go from pretty and butterflies to spooky and scary in a cute type of way, let me introduce you to our wonderful challenge at Card Makin Mamas this week.  We are sponsored by Digital Delights by Lou Lou this week and we were given some images to play with
This is Aliana Witch and she gave me the chance to play with some awesome Orange blending on that Pumpkin!  I used my Blackcat cutter for the spider web and bats with American Crafts Glitter Cardstock.   
Looking forward to seeing your creations when you enter the Card Makin Mama's challenge this week, be sure to link up over at the Challenge Blog.
Thanks for visiting today


So I was inspired by Amy R to sort my ribbons. I stupidly unwound my spools of ribbon a few years back, leaving me with a ball of mess. Amy R of paper prairie has a you tube video on ribbons using dolly pegs, unfortunately I could only get coloured pegs, risking ribbons getting stained, fingers crossed that's a small risk. Here is the end product of sorting, the pegs and the bags with smaller remnants (and spare pegs)

Special thanks to Mel Goodman for the box I put the pegs in.

Meanwhile...on the resin front here are a few moulds i made with molding putty.

Change in Style

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Resin molds and casting in the past week and lets just say WOW.. The process is quite easy and not that expensive once you have the resin and molds.  I've always been a bit scabby with embellishments, who knows why, their cost, the worry of running out, im not sure, but I can tell you, I have more embellishments than what I know what to do with and now RESIN is going to add more and more and im thrilled!

This card uses bits and pieces of my favourite things, nestabilities, my blackcat cougar, Resin and of course copics, I also used distress ink with a nest shape to get that cool shadowing around the coloured image.

Looking forward to your thoughts, if you do comment can you let me know if you think the photo quality needs improvement, images look fine on my PC but I noticed they look grainy on my Ipad. 

Im excited to enter this into the Creatalicious Challenge this month, its been ages since I played in challenges and Creatalicious is one of my old DT's.. Love that site.  The challenge is a colour palette and I've managed to use all the colours without even trying!

Here are a few more images from my smashbook in progress, Im loving keeping a colouring journal and kicking myself for not starting it sooner.  I have written down the colours for the image on the bottom if anyone wants to know the combos, just comments and Ill type them up.

Have a great day
