Cosy Animal Cards

Good morning crafty friends, how are we all? Bit of a stressful week here, at my hospital appointment on Monday I was told I can’t drive until June at the earliest and I’m also having an MRI scan next week. At least I have plenty of crafting to do to keep me occupied.

Anyway, enough about hospitals, here’s some cute cards that feature in issue 129 of PaperCrafter magazine…..

These cards were made with the free papers which come with the issue. There’s lots of cute animals wearing jumpers and scarves to keep out the winter chill.

There are bright colours to brighten up these grey winter days and there are matching sentiments too.

I also made a matching tag with a shaker element, I love the way this bunny’s scarf is blowing in the wind!

You can get your hands on these fabulous papers over at PaperCrafter magazine.

Enjoy your day,

Let’s Get Motivated…

Happy New Year crafty friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. It’s now that time to get motivated and focus on the year ahead.

As we’re talking motivation and positivity I’d like to share these makes that I created for the Crafts Beautiful Winter Special…

These makes feature the Vicki Boutin All The Good Things 2 Die & Stamp Set. The dies match the stamps and die-cut leaving a small white border, giving a professional finish.

I also used some Vicki Boutin 12 x 12″ papers for the layers and mixed subtle stamped subtle backgrounds to match the die-cut toppers for a coordinating look.

I used alcohol markers to colour the die-cut toppers and added an extra pop of colour with tiny punched flowers and coloured sequins.

Full instructions and shopping lists for these makes can be found at Crafts Beautiful.

The Vicki Boutin Die & Stamp Set, plus coordinating papers are available at Crafts U Love.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
