Two Retro Cards!

Hi, guys! I'm just popping by to post a couple of cards made with the Love from Lizi October card kit.

The first is a thank you card for my bro and sis-in-law, who we visited last Sunday. I CASEd a card made in this video from 2009 by Kristina Werner for Two Peas in a Bucket, a USA shop that has sadly closed down. The videos are still available, though!


The papers, peel-offs and embossing folder is from the kit. The circle sentiment is an anciet one from Hero Arts and the ribbon is from stash.


Here everything, except the sentiment, is from the kit.

The papers have a lovely Retro feel, I think!

Thanks for looking!

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #38

Good morning! I hope you are all having a good week! We have a new Challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge but before I go any further I must apologise that my card isn't on the Challenge blog. I was so certain that I'd uploaded it that I forgot to check! D'oh!!!

Anyway, as usual the Challenge is Anything Christmas Goes and here is my card.


The sentiment and images came free with a magazine recently and have a very 'Scandi' feel so I went with red and white. The background paper is from stash and I added white Nuvo drops to the middle of the poinsettias. The embossing folder for the white strip came with the same magazine and I added gold peel-offs to trim the edges and match the gold embossing on the sentiment. I also used an MFT scalloped edge die along one side.

Tonight I am joining my local Mothers' Union members to stitch felt stockings to be filled with little gifts for deprived children in the area, and I've been cross-stitching Scandinavian motifs to decorate them. I'd forgotten how addictive cross stitch can be!

Thanks so much for looking, and enjoy your week!

Dream Valley Challenges #188 Flowers

Hi, guys! There is a new Challenge at Dream Valley today and the theme is Flowers. I'm a bit early today as the post on the blog isn't up yet, I hope you don't mind!

Our fab sponsor is Sheepski Designs and Andrea very kindly provided some of her beautiful images for the DT to use.

I chose the delicate and pretty Wild Roses digi and coloured in Promarkers, not Copics, because I knew that the Rose colours would match my papers.


The papers are from my stash, I must have had them 8 years! The sentiment is from an old Penny Black stamp set and is gold-embossed. The lace came from our local market. I also added a gold peel-off from Love From Lizi and Nuvo Drops in Bubblegum Blush.

I am so pleased with this card, it turned out just how I imagined it!!!

Thanks for looking and have a great week!

My Time to Kraft #380 Use Kraft card

Hi, guys! Our new Challenge at My Time To Kraft is touse Craft on your creation! (Do you see what I did there?!)

I love the effect of white embossing on kraft, so I found a stamp with a solid image on it and got to work!


The stamp is an old one from Chocolate Baroque, and the sentiment is from the same set. The background paper is from Bazzill Basics Kraft Foil paper pad and it's gorgeous, the stripes are in gold foil on a kraft background. The white ribbon and sequins are from stash.

I managed to cut the paper a bit too shortfor the card base, but I trimmed the base down and I think it looks ok!

Thanks for looking, and have a lovely weekend!

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #37 Anything Christmas Goes.

Hi, guys! I hope your week has started well and that it will get even better!

In 3 months' time it will be Christmas Day - so let's get going with Christmas cards! There's a new Challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge to encourage you!

I have made 2 masculine cards, using items from a Love From Lizi card kit from last year.


Both cards are made with cut-aparts featuring stags.


I added gold peel-offs to the edges of the vertical paper on the first card, and a gold mirri die-cut greeting. The second has a gold mirri mat, a gold ribbon and dots of Nuvo Drops over dots on the image.

I find masculine Christmas cards quite hard, but I'm pleased with these!

Go and see what my talented teamies have created, and dig out your Christmas stash!

Dream Valley Challenge #187 Pearls or Gems

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope you're all keeping well. We have a new Challenge at Dream Valley - use Pearls or Gems.

I may have gonne a bit over the top with the gems on my Christmas card! But can you have too much bling at Christmas? I don't think so!


I used a Spellbinders 6 x 6 die for the background, the centre is in the shape of their Labels One and I used a Decorative Labels One die cut in patterned paper to cover it. Sadly, it seems that the Labels One dies are no longer available.

The papers are from Dovecraft's The Magic of Christmas 6 x 6 pad. The background paper has wreaths on it, and I like how bits of the wreaths peep through the trellis. The sentiment is from Lil' Inkers All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set (also, sadly, out of print.)

I used 3 sizes of clear gems from stash, going from the largest in the middle to the tiniest at the edge.

Go and see my teamies' gorgeous creations and join in the Challenge!

My Time to Craft #380 Food and Drink

Hello, my dearios! It's been a very busy fortnight, we went on holiday to North Norfolk for a week then just had time to do a load of washing before we were off again to Dublin, to witness my daughter and her lovely young man get married in the registry office there. They had the party in May, this was just the paperwork - not the usual way to go about things, I know! Afterwards we had a delicious meal, and a stroll around Dublin's Fair City. It is such a beautiful place!

Anyway, we're finally back to normal and there is a new Challenge at My Time to Craft which is Food and/orDrink. No, I haven't mistaken the day, the Challenge has moved from Saturday to Friday.


I used items from the Simon Says Stamp card kit for February 2017. The stamp and sentiment come from Simon's Coffee and Tea stamp set and the paper is Doodlebug's Cream and Sugar 6 x 6 paper pad. The ribbon is from stash.

My teamies have made some delicious cards to inspire you, go and see!

My Time to Craft! #379 Under the Sea

Hi, guys! I hope you're having a lovely weekend! Ye Olde Manne and I have just spent a week in Beautiful North Norfolk, visiting stately homes, riding on a train pulled by a steam engine, watching birds and reading. It was so restful!

Now we're home again and the washing machine is working overtime. It's also time for a new Challenge at My Time to Craft! whose theme is Under the Sea.

Before I go on, please note that the day for our Challenge is changing. From the next Challenge WE ARE CHANGING FROM FORTNIGHTLY SATURDAYS TO FORTNIGHTLY FRIDAYS.

For my card I used an image from Pollycraft - which is now under the wing of Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Unfortunately this mermaid is no longer available, but do check out the adorable Chester the Monkey!


I used blue and green papers from the snippets drawer and White Nuvo Drops. I went round the image with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. The sentiment is made with a die from a Love from Lizi kit.

Have a look at my teamies' aquatic creations and join in!

Don't forget the Challenge is changing to FRIDAYS!

Hi, guys! It's time for another Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge!

For a change I have made a pillow box, not a card!

My Time to Craft #378 Christmas in August

Good morning, lovely pals! There's a newChallenge at My Time to Craft and it's Christmas in August - a very good reason to get into that pesky Christmas card list before the rush in November!

I have made a small card, 4.5 inches square, using a very cute Lawn Fawn Stamp called Winter Unicorn.


It's very pink and girly! The paper is from an ancient magazine freebie. I coloured and cut out the unicorn and added Diamond Stickles to her mane and tail. I die-cut a Zig zag stitched circle by MFTand stamped the sentiment before adding the unicorn and 3 gold heartscut with a Simon Says Stamp die. The snowflakes are actually table confetti, bought in a post-Christmas sale! I added Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Drops to the centres.

I also made a more general 'winter' card with Lawn Fawn's Winter Alpaca stamp.


It's made the same way as the unicorn card, but is perhaps more suitable for a boy.

Go and see what my teamies have made, then get out your Christmas (not winter!) goodies and join in the fun!

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #34 - and a DT Call!

Hi, guys! Festive greetings - we have a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge! As usual the theme is Anything Christmas Goes and it doesn't have to be a card!

We also have a DT Call so hop over and check out the details!

While sorting my stamp sets I came across this cute Merry and Bright set from Simon Says Stamp, which came in an old kit along with Doodlebug papers from the Here Comes Santa Claus paper pad.


I used an MFT Stitched Scalloped Border Die for the snowbanks, with some icicle Stickles to add streaks of glitter. I used red Nuvo Drops for Rudolph's nose and the baubles on the tree.

My teamies, as usual, have made gorgeous examples to inspire you!

I went with the adorable Little Dragons (scroll down to find the image.)


All the papers are from the Snippets drawer, which is now almost too full to shut properly! I took the colours for my dragons from the spotted paper, using mint green and purple to make a congratulations card on the birth of twins.

My Time to Craft #377 More Than One Fold

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope you're all keeping well. We have a new Challenge at My Time to Craft which is to use More than one fold.

I made a Diamond Top Card - the link is to Christina Griffith's very useful website.


The papers are from stash. I masked and gold-embossed the flowers and leaves, and used Zig Real Brush markers to colour them, then used a Spellbinders Lacy Square die to cut them out. The gold-embossed sentiment is from an old Hero Arts stamp set.

The diamond top fold is a bit tricky at first, but I practised on printer paper until I got it right!

Go and see my teamies'lovely creations, and welcome the 4 new members of the DT!

Roses, roses all the way!

Hi, guys! On Saturday I posted an ATC for the latest challenge at My Time to Craft and I wondered what it would look like made into a bigger card. Here's the ATC:


And now here's the card:


Both are very pink!!

The papers are the same and I used white seam binding on the card instead of ribbon upcycled from a blouse. I used a 2-part MFT Blueprints 18 die for the background, which is why the card is a mirror-image. As before, I fussy-cut the flowers and leaves and added them to give dimension.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking, and I hope you're having a great day.

Anyway, here's my Christmas card:


The image is a very old C C Designs stamp called 'Stocking Boy.' I used papers from an old Kaisercraft pad, the background is glittered!

First of all, a massive apology to all followers of Dream Valley and our lovely DT! I forgot to add my card to the blogpost. What a plonker!

Our theme is Christmas in July and our gorgeous sponsor is All Dressed Up Stamps.


This sweet image is All Dressed Up for Christmas.

The papers are Merry Little Christmas by First Edition, which is sadly out of print. The gold and green ribbon is from stash. I added sparkle to her wings and Nuvo Drops to the baubles on the tree. The sentiment came with a magazine, I like the pop of teal against the trad red and green!

My Time to Craft #376 Artist Trading Card (ATC)

Hiya! I hope everyone's having an enjoyable weekend!

Today there's a new challenge at My Time to Craft and this fortnight we'd like to see Artist Trading Cards, or ATCs. These are little cards, 2 and a half inches by 3 and a half inches, which you decorate. Yes, like Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh trading cards, but prettier!

I was inspired by a 6 x 6 pad of papers called The Peony Avenue by Studio 5


I cut 2 papers to size and sliced across them at an angle and reassembled them. I gold embossed the edges using Versamark and embossing powder. I fussy cut flowers and leaves from one of the papers. Then I went over the flowers with a sparkle pen. I also decorated the back


It was very interesting working on such a small scale, and now I want to make a co-ordinating card to see if it will work when expanded!

Do go and see my teamies' fab ATCs, they are so varied and original!

My Time to Craft #375 Wedding/Engagement/Anniversary

Good afternoon, all! I hope you're having a good weekend. Our daughter and the Gorgeous Grandson are here - Oscar is very fast on his feet now, and quite tall, so I've been madly moving various ornaments to much higher shelves than I thought necessary this morning! How quickly we forget what small children can get up to! And how one cheeky grin can melt a doting grandma's heart!

That's why I'm a few hours late with my DT post for My Time to Craft. Our theme is Weddings, Engagements or Anniversaries nice and romantic!

I made a Z-fold card. Here is the front:


Because the Dotty Card by Anna Marie Designs is printed on only one side I cut a piece that's 4.25 by 5.50 inches and a second piece that's 4.75 by 5.50 inches, then scored at 4.25, folded the flap, and glued it so the patterned sides were facing each other. Then I scored at 2 and an eighth inches down the front and folded it back. Does that make sense?

Here is the inside:


I used an old Nellie Snellen heart die to make the focal point. I used Distress Oxide ink to colour the smaller hearts and glued a pice of paper lace, made with the Floral Trellis Die from Card Making Magic on top. The pearl hearts in the corners are from Hobbycraft. The purple heart gem is from stash.

My teamies have made some very beautiful and romantic cards for the challenge, go and see!

Thanks for looking! I'm about to order a takeaway from the new Japanese restaurant that's just opened in Hoddesdon! It's rather good.

Take care!

Hi, guys! I hope you're all well! We have had an exciting day - the new washing machine has been delivered! We really know how to live a glamorous life here at the Manor!

Even more exciting is our new challenge at My Time to Craft! which is a lovely CAS sketch.


So versatile! I used it to showcase a pretty paper from Modascrap which was included in the June kit by Simon Says Stamp.


The gold card also came with the kit. I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the swags on the balloon and the flowers, and some sequins from my stash.

My teamies have made some gorgeous cards, go and see how one simple sketch can be interpreted in so many ways!

Good morning, all! Phew! It's already a scorching day here in S-E Herts, so it's a little odd to be posting Christmas cards for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. Our challenges are always Anything Christmas Goes.

I made 2 cards with decoupage sheets from Hunkydory that I've had for ages! I added silver mats and a silver-embossed sentiment.


I used silicon gel to adhere all the layers together.


I love this old-fashioned pillar box, it reminds me of one that stood outside my grandparents' house in Newcastle-upon-Tyne!

Both images have touches of silver foiling - so pretty!

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope you're all keeping well. I am a bit stiff and achey from going on a March in London on Saturday - it was an incredible day, but now I'm aware that I'm not as young as I was!!!

On to our new Challenge at Dream Valley which is All Things Bright and Beautiful. And the Challenge runs until July 28th so there is plenty of time to enter!

I used more supplies from a Love from Lizi kit.


The paper has glossy leaves and is gorgeous! I cut the toucan from gold card and layered it on some white paper, and there is a 'nest' of shiny fine thread behind it. The butterflies show better irl, they were made with a Martha Stewart punch.

Go and see the bright and beautiful creations my teamies have made!

My Time to Craft #373 Make a Stamped Background.

Hi, guys! I hope you're all keeping well. Our new Challenge at My Time to Craft is to Make a Stamped Background. It can be made with rubber stamps or digis.

I am determined to make better use of the card kits I subscribe to, so I had the Everything Together stamp set from the May 2018 Simon Says Stamp kit and decided to use the solid flower and leaf stamps for my background, with some Hero Arts dye inks.


Inspired by our Jedi Master Shell's card for our Circles Challenge last month, I die-cut the centre of my piece, matted it on card, and replaced it using fun foam.

The sentiment is from Simon's Uplifting Thoughts stamp set and reads 'There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.' I added a ribbon from stash and gold stickles to the centres of the flowers.

Do go and see what my talented teamies have made, the variety is very inspiring!

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #30

Good morning! I hope you're all keeping well! We have a new Challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge which as always is Anything Christmas Goes.

I have been sorting my craft hovel (again!) and dug out a lovely filigree leaping stag stamp which came with a magazine last year. I embossed it in Antique Gold embossing powder from Altenew, which is gorgeous, and decided to go for a more shabby chic look than usual.


I fussy-cut the image and layered it on a circle of blue vellum and a doily, edged with a string of pearls. The gold-embossed sentiment is from the magazine stamp set. I used Vintage Photo to distress the edges of the cardbase and the paper, which is from stash. The Lace and stars came from an old kit from Crafteezee and the ribbon and flower are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added Glamour Dust to the wooden stars and the dewdrops are from stash.

I also used a lot of Glossy Accents to glue everything in place, as I'd mislaid my glue gun!

Now I'm going to continue sorting all my craft stuff - my hubby very kindly handed me a big bin bag on Sunday - do you think he was hinting I should - gasp! - get rid of things???

Dream Valley Challenges #181 Add some bling.

Hi, guys! Today we have a Blingtastic Challenge for you at Dream Valley. I might have gone a bit Over The Top with my card.....


This adorable image is Sweet Blossom by Whimsy Stamps. I coloured her with Copics and added Gold Stickles to the centres of the flowers and the bodies of the butterflies. I added sequins from my stash.

The papers are from stash: I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the green border and added some navy Nuvo Crystal Drops and a gold glitter Peel-Off from Love From Lizi to trim the join. The baker's twine has blue glitter threads. The heart is die-cut from gold glitter card, and the sentiment die-cut is made with gold mirri card. Finally I added some Wink of Stella to all the blue flowers on the bp.

Do you think that's Blingy enough???

Our fab sponsor is Dies to Die For which is a treasure-trove of crafty goodies!!

The images and sentiment come from an old Simon Says Stamp kit. I coloured and fussy-cut the ice lolly and flip flops, and added glossy accents to the lolly. I embossed the sentiment with SSS steel blue embossing powder, it's very shiny! The paper is from an old paper pad by Echo Park, and the orange twine is from Lawn Fawn.

The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #30

Hi, guys! After the sunshine of the last few days it's turned overcast and humid today - maybe we'll have more thunder and lightning! Usually thunderstorms go from south to north here, following the line of the River Lea about a mile away, but the other night the lightning was all across the sky! Very impressive!

To take my mind off how hot and icky I'm feeling, here is my card for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. I used items from a kit from Simon Says Stamp.


The Santa is from Christmas Squad by Simon, the papers are Doodlebug's Milk and Cookies collection. The ribbon is from stash as are the gold sequins. All Santa's fur trim has been covered with Stickles!

I used a rectangular and a square die to make a 'polaroid' but I should have used slightly smaller dies, because I think it's too big. Never mind, we live and learn!

Dream Valley Challenges #180 For a Man or Boy

Morning, all! I hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Our new Challenge at Dream Valley is For a Man or Boy or as I like to say 'For a bloke!' I made a baby card, as I seem to be needing a few these days! My kids' generation is at that age - it's a bit strange, because I remember them when they were much younger, and surely it's not that long ago?


The cute duck is Baby Huey by our sponsor Cute as a Button.

I did the 'out of the box' technique on the ballon, which I covered with Glossy Accents. The papers are from stash. The sentiment is an old one from Clearly Besotted and I used a die for the word 'Baby.' The star stickers came from Paperchase a long time ago.

Go and see what my teamies have made, they will inspire you to join in!

CRAFT Challenge #469 Father's Day or Male

Morning, all! I am scheduling this post as I have hospital check-ups tomorrow and I don't know how long it will take! However, the good news is I'm still in remission from my bowel cancer. It's amazing to think that it's now 2 years since I started my treatment - and thanks to the incredible doctors and nurses of the NHS I am still here!!!

So I hope this post appears at the right time. We have a topical theme at CRAFT Challenge which is Father's Day or For a Bloke..


This lovely image is Lighthouse by Sweet 'n Sassy. Icoloured it with Promarkers. The paper is from stash, I cut it so that the centre, where the lines cross, would be behind the top of the lighthouse, and added Spectrum Noir sparkle to the coloured wedges, and also to the yellow section of the lighthouse. The die-cut 'Dad' is made with a very old MFT alphabet die, and covered with Glossy Accents.

Our great sponsor this week is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
