Pastel Angel Tag


I've decided to join my ladies for the SheepSki challenge blog inspiration.  I usually make a few Christmas tags for my presents so I though this was the perfect opportunity :)



I was in a bit of a rush, my day just is just eating all my time up, so I chose to do very subtle neutral pastel colours.  the image was coloured with Copic and then fussy cut.

I found some glitter paper pad in Hobby Craft before lockdown and I had a lovely chocolate coloured one.

My design paper is an off cut scrap left from some scrapbook papers.


The tag was cut with a die and the design paper trimmed to fit just inside.  There's a winter themed wood chip circle, i think it may be Scrapiniec, I found it in my stash with the labels cut off.  Probably from another project I started and changed my mind :)

Finally after adding the fussy cut angel and dove I added a glittery wooden Happy Christmas sentiment.  Oh and a bit of left over ribbon from when I was on the Ribbon Girl DT.

Little pink smoochy bear

Our theme for July at All Dressed Up in the Facebook Group is FOR THE KIDZ.

I've never made a baby tag before and I had some card to recycle, so here it is :)



The images was coloured with Copics.  Once I'd coloured it I then scattered some embossing enamel for a bit of interest.


Cut out with a die the images is frames with appropriately pink glitter paper.  My finishing touches are a few different pink and cream ribbons and a tiny silver star charm.

Thanks for popping by today.

Watering mushrooms

A new month and we're lucky to have The Paper Shelter sponsoring us at Outlawz Sketch for June.



The image has been coloured with Copics, I've then framed it with some black card.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks


I've used some more black card for the back ground and used design paper from StudioLight.



Instead of a ribbon and embellies like the sketch I decided to use my mushroom die strip to go with the image :)

Thank for popping by today, we hope we see you at the challenge

Reading a good book.....

Today is our new release inspiration day at All Dressed Up.

I've coloured it with Copics making a scene for a simple one later CAS card.


All I've added is a sentiment made up from Tim Holtz sticker saying "A little me time".

Not your normal gnomes

So for some reason I seem to be having a pick or purple mushroom thing.  I think it's because every time I want to colour them red but think do something different.  So today we have a pale purple one :)

This image is called Giant Mushroom, it's either that or these are not normal gnomes and they're miniature ones haha....  You can find the image here in the shop where you can get 10% off all images by quoting SKIANDREA10 at checkout.

However, if you're lucky enough to be reading this shortly after my post and check out this Kit & Clowder post link you might just find yourselves a bigger discount code!


I've coloured the image with Copics, keeping the card CAS style today to showcase the image, I've added a "me n you" sentiment with Tim Holtz stickers and a bit of sparkle with a few sequins and sparkly enamel dots.


My design paper is from First Edition and I've used a bit of skinny purple ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for popping by for a look today :)

Butterfly Bunny

I'm using the adorable Butterfly Bunny from All Dressed Up for our challenge inspiration in the Facebook Group.



I've coloured the image with Copics then cut it out with a stitched die I got from Dies to Die for.

There's also a tiny pink banner cut with a Fantasy Die at the top right of the image.

My layers of design papers are from Maya Design and Lemoncraft.


A few scattered paper leaves and flowers, some pearl gems and a kindness sticker from Tim Holtz complete the card, these were all from Hobby Craft.  

Don't forget we also have a blog challenge, you can find it here.

You can see more inspiration from the Dressy Girls in the Facebook Group.  Hope to see you there.

Hooray it's your birthday.....

Finding a little extra crafty time at the moment is a little tricky, but I've managed to at least colour up Wine Time.  You can find this image here in the shop where you can get 10% off all the images by quoting SKIANDREA10 at checkout.


The image has been coloured with Copics.  Left simple to showcase the image, I've used some design paper from Wild Rose Studio that I've had in my stash for years, called Man About Town


Also in my stash were some burgundy sparkly enamel dots, perfect colour for the colouring :)

I've also added a Hooray sentiment, coloured with Copics, inside I'm going to write "It's your Birthday!"
