Little Sunshine

Good morning friends, 
I have been having a little fun at my craft desk with the new Shadow stamps "Little sunshine" and a newbie Tilda, Tilda with kneesocks from the "Sakura" collection. 



Tilda has been coloured with copics and the background has been created by colouring the shadow stamps with water markers. It was fun to experiment with shadow stamps, I have to say, it has been a while since I have had a play with stamps that are not outlines. 


The card is a fairly bright and colourful :) Its winter here and has been a dark and rainy week, I was in the mood for some bright colours to cheer the house up. 

I hope you have a fun weekend of crafting planned! 
Until later, Kylie xx

Happy birthday Pop

Hi all,
Something a little different for me today - I dug out a LOTV stamp that has been sitting in my collection for probably 4-5 years that has never before seen ink (um mah!!)




Today is my Dad's birthday so I made a card for him. He adores my two little boys so I bought this stamp with both Dad and my boys in mind... just never got around to using it until last night. 

It is a gorgeous image, two little boys sharing a milkshake.... there is only one thing wrong with it - what little kids share?? Very rarely I would think! At least in this house. 



The papers are Studio Calico (I think). All of the embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl
The image is of course coloured with Copics. 


It was heaps of fun to use a LOTV stamp for a change, it has been a while! 
I might get my others out for a bit of a play.

Dad liked his birthday card with the little boys on it so I am happy. 
I'll be back soon with some more to share, I have some new stamps on their way to me so hopefully Mr Postie visits Monday so I can get cracking.
Until then, have a great weekend xx

The Ribbon Girl June Card Challenge - Animals!

Happy Sunday Friends,
I have a card today with a cute little birdy to share. 





There is a new challenge at the Ribbon Girl blog - this week we're looking for Animals. 
I have used 30mm cream zig zag cotton lace, 10mm florence ivory lace, Pearl and Rhinestone butterflies, Bark heart, Aqua daisy lacey edge ribbon, Ivory Jute Mesh Ribbon, Mocha 10mm Open Roses.  



The cute bird is by Magnolia and I cut the card base using a Marianne Design die. 


The bird is coloured with Copics and sentiment is Stampin up


I hope you get a chance to get crafty this weekend!

A Lazy start to the weekend

Have you received your stamp club in the mail yet? Ohh... mine arrived this week and they are adorable. This is Lazy Tilda.  The collection is called "Sakura" and there are so many adorable stamps, the ones in the club are just the beginning.  There are several in this collection that might have to come and join my collection at some point :)


I've used a few goodies from the Ribbon Girl:  Cheesecloth, Liquid pearls, cotton lace, flat back gems, roses
The papers are MME from an older release. I love the aqua and yellow together, so fresh. 

Lazy Tilda has been colouored with Copics. I've used a few Doo Hickey Dies and Spellbinders to assemble my card.

The gorgeous dragonflies are from Make It Crafty and I've just added some pretty aqua acrylic paint to brighten them up.


Its looking a bit like a dreary day today so I might have to head back to my desk to do some more colouring :D  What have you planned for the weekend?

Hugs x
