Tonic Buildables Hippo

Hi Crafters

I seem to be going through a 6x6 phase. I am trying to take into account the cost of postage as sending out an 8x8 comes under large letter so nearly £1 to send!!

So this Hippo is so super cute,  I love it!!

I made it using grey pearlised card. To add a bit more dimension I inked the edges with black ink and assembled the hippo with foam pads.
The added Nuvo drops to the eyes to add a bit more dimension.
The Baby balloons are a Tonic die too. I cut 2 out and offset the grey with white underneath, then I placed the white letters in the balloons to make them pop.
The blue  paper is from a paper pad from the pound shop.
To add a bit of interest and make the hippo stick out I matted 2 scalloped circles onto the card and put the hippo onto them.
A few pearils in the corners were added to finish it off.

Creative Stamping Mag Number 41

Hi Crafters

Another 6x6 card today

This is one of those cards that we never like to make. I usually have a few Sympathy cards or Thinking of You cards in my card box ready for those times they are needed.

This is very simple and plain but that was what I wanted.

I matted and layered cream pearilised card onto black card.
Then stamped the feather and sentiment onto a smaller piece of cream card and matted this onto black card. The placement of the stamps were made so much easier using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.
I then mounted it onto the center of the card with foam pads just to give it a bit of dimension.

Both stamps were from the Creative Stamping Magazine issue 41

Creative Stamping Magazine 42

Hi Crafters

Today I am sharing with you a 6x6 card.

I made this with the fabulous free stamps in the Creative Stamping Magazine number 42.
I don't do many princess cards but I had to have the magazine as the stamp set included a unicorn, playing cards etc and loads of super inspiration inside the magazine.
The backing paper is from a Tonic paperpad. I added faux stitching to add a bit of interest.

Please feel free to leave a comment even just to say hi.

Thanks for dropping by

Tonic Buildables Owl


Hi crafters.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Today I am sharing with you a 6x6 card I made using the super cute Tonic Buildables Owl.

This was such a hoot to craft with (sorry couldn't resist)
So easy to craft with, I can see the various colours and textures to use with this being endless and suitable for so many occasions.
The sentiment is one of my stamps that I designed when I had my little craft business and its so apt for this character and card.
The paper is surprisingly from the pound shop. I got a 6x6 paper pad and for £1 how could I resist.
Hope you like.
Feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to let me know there are crafters out there who drop by.
