Saturdays card


Ha Ha just when you thought it was safe!

had to share my favourite little fellow  from this set of stamps once more with you

i had coloured him in first then embossed the background around him that was alittle scary

as didn’t know if it would work…. phew it did.

then cut a frame that stands proud of the image  with foam squares edged with crystal glitter all matted onto gold mirri and more centrua pearl with some spotty ribbon  and a bow to match his dickey bow..

thank you for popping by  and for all your fanatic comments

Humphrey Mobile with template


 i saw a mobile which was truly stunning while visiting some of the blogs i follow
just knew i had to try and make one.... this is my take on the idea 
sorry about the image being dark it was taken very late at night and trying to get the little image to stop spinning was a fete in it's self
i have added my template  at the bottom of this post if you would like to try one
get  everything ready before hand the assembly is very quick

i used the thick A4 grey card the sort you get at back of a writing pad you only need 1 sheet
 i painted mine with Acrylic paint  it makes it very strong 
of coarse i had to  use the new
Humphrey stamp  from Crafters Companion
as my main element
the stars are  the smallest X Cut dies 
i used invisible  double length of thread  for the arms and sandwiched that  between the stars that were all cut from core-dination card
decorated the top with more stars  flowers gems and some cut glass glitter

  my template 
print out @ A4
thank you for popping by today

the inspiration for this project  came from this young lady
over on
