Chasing butterfly and dreams

Finally managed to get some time to be creative. Its busy, busy which always stops the creative flow. I am busy all weekend so need to get some creations made to save my sanity. Its my mothers birthday very soon and I have created this specially for her as she loves all things butterfly and this is all butterfly.
Over on just-magnolia they would like to see a card that is not square shaped. I choose to make a butterfly shaped card to fit with my theme.
The paper on the front is basic grey. Tilda and butterlies are from the spring set. I made the sentiment on my computer and cut it out in the shape of a butterfly. The paper on the inside I created using my computer so that it matched. I glued some gems to add some bling.

Stamps: magnolia

Stay safe. A curious card

Its The case of the curious card. Over on The greeting farm blog they have a card for you to case. The card is by Anna Maria and it is such a cutie. This is my card. As soon as I saw this Hero Ian I knew what kind of card I wanted to make. When loved ones are posted into war zones, there aren't many suitable cards and this is what I wanted to create.I wanted to make a card that lets them know that we are proud of them and what they are doing. A card that would make them smile and I think this one says it all.
I have used some Basic grey papers. I printed RAF Insignia from the Internet and 3d glazed it to keep the colour. The camo paper in the background I have coloured by hand as I couldn't buy any. I them added some ribbons in the colours of the RAF so that it all ties together.

Stamp: Hero Ian
Papers: Basic grey

I hope you like the card and hope that everyones loved ones make it back safe x

Sugar bowl challenge 10

I am going to start with an apology, it can only get better from there.
I haven't been crafting much lately as real life has got so hectic and when ever I sit down I get a total block and feel so tired.
So I have managed to string some time together and had a play with the new Sugar Nellie stamps which are just stunning.
Over on Sugar-bowl-challenge the very talented Marlene has made a sketch for you to follow. Grab a coffee or tea and pop by Marlene's site by clicking her name and be prepared to sit for a long time as her work is stunning.
All the papers are by Basic gray cupcake apart from the white with blue flourish that I have made used the rollagraph from imagination-crafts to create this paper and the mica powders that they sell.
Stamp: Sugar nellie
Papers: Basic grey
Rollagraph: Flourish
Flowers: Prima
Coloured with copic pens.

Heather's room

Well as you can guess its another door hanger. This one is for Heather and goes with her room. I enjoyed making the one for Kayleigh so much I thought it only fair to make one for Heather also. Gayle at Sugar-bowl-extra has come up with this for the monthly challenge.
The paper I used was left over from a christmas stash of papers. Another Martha Stewart punch for the detail at the bottom, with ribbon and slider. Heather did have the choice to have it different but she wanted the same as K but the same colour as her room.

For this door hanger I have used the inkadinks inks from Imagination-crafts to colour it in, they are exclusive to them as far as I know. I have to admit that I have used a lamp black for the hair from my water colour blocks.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like what you see. If you have time please leave me a comment and then I can visit your blog.

Kayleigh's room

I thought I would join the ladies over at the Sugar-bowl-extra monthly project. The project this month is to create a door hanger. I have used the gorguss girls to create a reversible door hanger,
I used some chipboard and covered it with paper ( I can't remember whose papers they are). I used the circle scribe to cut the circle in the board. The border is created using a Martha stewart punch. I have added ribbin and a ribbon slider to add some detail.

Both images are from Sugar Nellie from the Gorjuss girls range.
I have coloured the images with my copic pens.
The letters are cut with my zipemate and I have glittered them.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you leave a comment so that I can visit your blog.
Hope you have a great weekend Jakki x
