Less Is More - Shadow Stamping

Oh my goodness it has been a while.  Still been busy card making just don't seem to ever get chance to blog them.  But today the kids were at their dads and I had nothing else pressing to do so visited one of my favourite blogs Less is More and decided it was time to join in :)

I had these Clarity stamps arrive yesterday and have been desperate to have a go with them.
Not overly sure about this card and it has been a while since I have done a one layer. Used Adirondack Butterscotch to stamp the image and then embossed with Seafoam White.
 This card was made using Adirondack Juniper to stamp the image and then for the first time I used Cosmic Shimmer flake & glitter glue to stamp the image again and used variegated green gilding flakes.  Quite like this technique although it needs a bit of perfecting.

I hope everyone is having a fab weekend, know I am and just about to open a bottle of wine :)

Kenny K - Anything Goes

Well Christmas is nearly here and the end of another year.  This is also my last post as part of the Kenny K DT, which I have totally enjoyed although the pressure of work and family life has seriously kept me away from blogging the last few months.
This weeks Kenny K challenge is anything goes and I have used one of my favourite images Delores D'ammage.
She is coloured with copics with a bit of glitter.  I'm not sure what this style of card is called, but I made it using kraft card.  I usually just use a plain simple card base but I think next year might see some making of different shaped cards :)

Am hoping next year to be able to get back to a bit more blogging.  Am still making plenty of cards, just never seem to get the chance to blog them. Am also looking forward to being able to participate in the Kenny K challenges once again :)

Wishing everyone a fabulous Christmas and New Year x

Kenny K - Anything Goes with a New Release

Oh my I can't believe it is Sunday again and it's nearly December and it's my Birthday today, 21 again ;) ! 
The past couple of weeks have been extremely hectic, have been finishing the conservatory, can't believe how long it takes to put up wallpaper and gloss woodwork!! And to top it all my mother went into hospital last Thursday for her hip replacement, which has been cancelled twice and she wasn't due to go in until 28th November, so threw me and my siblings into slight panic having to change plans and doing visiting duty.  Thankfully she was only in for 6 days and is now home and doing really well.
On to this weeks Kenny K challenge. I used one of the fab new releases called cupcake celebration and coloured with copics.

Kenny K - Pumps & Pearls

Well blogger managed to post this picture before it should have, and have been so busy the last few days I never noticed until Saturday!
Had a lovely trip to the NEC on Thursday and brought myself a few new bits and pieces and have then spent all day Saturday decorating the conservatory.
The Kenny K Challenge is pumps & pearls.  I used the gorgeous Club Kid and coloured her with copics.
Not sure where the papers are from but used a few dies and of course pearls.

Kenny K - Sparkle

Another Sunday and another fabulous release from Kenny K.
Loved colouring these gorgeous images and just cut them out and stuck them on to a spellbinder die.
Am in the middle of decorating this weekend having just had my conservatory finished and am finishing the boys bedroom with new skirting board, painting the room ready for new carpet on Wednesday.  My house is just a total mess, oh well not for much longer.

Half term next week so looking forward to a few days off although they will probably be spent getting the house back in order.

Don't forget to pop over to Kenny K's and check out the rest of the DT's creations and why not join in yourself :)

Kenny K - New Christmas Images

Well it's another Sunday and nearly the end of September, where the heck is this year going?
This weeks Kenny K challenge is a Christmas card using one of the fab new releases.
Loved colouring this image and just layered it up on some very simple papers.  Used a Marianne die for the flowers, the leaves are signature dies and this is the first time I have used them.  The sentiment is from Clarity and again the first time out.

Pop over to Kenny's and see what the rest of the team have been up to and why not join in as well :)
