Mo Manning Clubhouse - Giggling Snowman

Question - Why is the snowman giggling? Answer - Because Santa's lost one of his reindeer ! Poor old Prancer is desperately trying to catch up ...........



Fabulous image - Giggling Snowman from Mo's shop and easy to colour with my Copics (B93, 95 and 97 and a bit of orange for his nose). I made the background with blue encaustic wax which I thought looked like trees in the snow and simply added some die cuts to finish it off. The wax effect is new to me and I found it simple to do with a bit of practice (we won't mention the ones that went in the bin!) - just make sure you use a sealed card stock, low heat on the tool and keep turning the card until you are happy with the effect.

Gradually getting my Christmas cards made, using Mo's images makes it sooooooo much easier!

More playin'


Here are some cards I made after following the Hot Glue Embossing technique by Connie MacFarlane at Splitcoast Stampers this week. If you haven't joined up to their weekly emails it's a really useful site which shares ideas and techniques each week, great inspiration.
Silver hot glue

Gold hot glue


Red hot glue

Great fun to make (follow the link above to their website for more details) - basically you apply hot glue using a glue gun to water colour card and then emboss with embossing powders - I used gold and silver and red on mine and it gave the impression of molten metal - fabulous! I coloured mine with Distress reinkers but you could use water colours/brushos etc and add glitter and gems (blue/silver one has gems added) if you want. Had a great crafty evening last night with Eileen and Martine going through this - we had glue all over the place lol !

Thanks for looking and have a fab weekend x

Mo's Clubhouse - Cat In The Christmas Tree

lol - so had to giggle when I saw this image from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop called Cat in the Christmas Tree


Such a cheeky cat - he's ended up covered in glitter! When my girl's were little they used to tell me it was our cat pinching the chocolates off the Christmas tree - although I did think it was odd that he was leaving the foil behind!

Easy to colour so quite a quick card to make for the festive season and bound to make someone smile.

COPIC COLOURS USED

Reds - R35,46 and 49; Yellows - Y11,15 and 26; Greens - YG01,03 and G94; Blues - B29 and 41; Cat - E21,25 and 29 with R83 for the ears.

Other items used - Penny Black Sentiment Dies, Holly Jolly and Merry Christmas, Stardust Stickles.

Jus' Playin' with a bit of inspiration from others..........

Hi, chilly today down in Kent so I've been keeping busy. Been inspired lately by so many different crafters so I thought I'd share them with you, I'm having great fun jus' playin' - learning and practicing lots of things. Lost my mojo for a while (I'm sure we all have life events which effect us don't we) but these crafters have inspired me to play.


This one was inspired by Heather Telford who uses a lot of watercolour effects and is a designer for one of my favourite stamp makers - Penny Black. This one is called Woodland Wonder and is stamped with black Archival on a piece of watercolour card coloured with water and Memento Paris Dusk Ink. Added a little bit of Crystal Glamour Dust to give it an icy feel.

Lots more playing going on which I'll hopefully show you soon including Encaustic Wax  - thank you to Birgit Edblom  (another Penny Black designer)  whose clean and simple style is adorable and who uses wax in selected elements of her card designs. And then today I've been trying a technique from a guest designer for Splitcoast Stampers  Connie MacFarlane using a hot glue gun and embossing powders then coloured with watercolours. 

Planning a play evening tomorrow with a couple of crafty friends so no doubt we'll be making a lot of mess using these techniques so a big thank you to the mentioned designers for giving such wonderful inspiration - if you want a go I have linked the blogs for them - just click on the links and have some fun! 

Thanks for looking x

Autumn, mmm one of my favourite seasons. So much colour around us before the bleak winter arrives! So to add to that the theme this month from Lavinia Stamps is - Glitter and Gems...........
