Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Spring Flower

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I set the DT challenge of making your own flowers and I pulled out some long owned, but hardly used felt form Papertrey Ink for this card. I also used the gorgeous Spring Flower for this one.

A group of friends and myself all had a bit of an addiction to Papertrey Ink a few years back and would order every month on release day. I have heaps of stamps, card, ribbon etc etc but I hardly ever use it all now. It just became so expensive having to pay for the shipping to the UK and then the import fees on top used to add another £30 or more, so I stopped buying and consequently stopped using their stuff, although I do still use their stamps a lot.

Anyway, here she is...Can you see all the sparkle on her wings? I finally got a new clear Wink of Stella pen which is so much more glittery than the last one was! Might just be because it is new though!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration post for the Little Miss Muffet Stamps. This week I have combined two of the digital stamp images from the Little Miss Muffet Stamps store to create this garden scene: Garden Border and Polka Dot Pals Elvina. I also added the face with the Polka Dot Pals Add On Faces.

This card is a lot more CAS than I would normally create but this image is also a lot larger than I normally do and I felt it didn't need much more than a simple patterned paper behind it! I just love how this one came out though!

Tiddly Inks Wryn Magical Day

Good morning and welcome to my post for today. It has been a while since I coloured up a Tiddly Ink image and coloured this one a little while ago now but only just got round to adding her to a card this weekend. 

I have decided that this half term (which is coming up next week for us teachers in the UK) I am going to have a massive sort out of all my old patterned papers and get rid of any that I don't like or use any more, but the papers here are one I wish I had bought more of before Stampin' up retired them! Orange is not usually a colour i would use, but I do love it when mixed with these pinks and browns! 

Anyway this cutie is Wryn Magical Day from Tiddly Ink and is such a cutie!

Good Morning and welcome to this week's inspiration post for Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps. This week I have chosen to use the gorgeous Little Daisy.

Tottie in pink and purple...


Ophelia in black and grey... Got carried away with the dots in her hair but they do go well with the patterned papers!
