Using My New Humphrey's Corner Stamp Free with Papercraft Essentials

Well here's my Second Post of the day :) I bought a copy of Papercraft Essentials the other day, I got drawn to the Magazine after seeing the Free Stamp. I love Humphrey images so when I saw the stamp I thought it was a must lol.
I Stamped the stamp three times on to White Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and coloured the images in three colour ways with Promarkers :)
Yellow, Poppy, Grass, Terracotta, Cool Grey 1, sky Blue, Gold and a Blender Pen
First image:

And last of all Third Image:

I think I will have to have a look in to getting some more Humphrey Corner's Stamps and maybe even have a go at making some cards as my coloured images are piling up lol.
Well have a good evening everyone :) x

Shimelle's April 4x6 Photo Love & A Layout without the use of a Sketch

Hi peeps, had hoped to post earlier this week but some how I managed to break my keyboard. Luckily hubby has managed fix it.
First up is a Layout I made with out using a sketch and came from my mind, which let me tell you is rare these days lol. For this Layout I used Kaisercraft's Jungle Bug Collection :)
I used the border from the paper called Grubby Gala and cut out a grasshopper from the paper called Beetle Bug which I stuck down with 3D Foam Pads.
I used Some Black Letter Stickers for the title Meet Joe The Grasshopper. My eldest was ecstatic when he found this Grasshopper whilst on a walk with my Mum and his Brothers, It really got him out of his bad mood. When he found it he walked quickly to us and said "Meet Joe"
I was really Brave and had a play with my Alcohol Ink Sprays - Sky Blue and Jade which I had sprayed all over the background Card Stock which I was impressed with, but spoilt it being a little bit more brave. I Cut some letter waste of each letter for Grasshopper and sprayed over hoping to get the title Grasshopper but it went really wrong :( So I ended up covering the area up with strips of Grubby Gala and the Blue Side of Beetle Bug and a little strip with some of the bugs from the paper called Leafy Green.
I also used my Black Sukura Pen to do some False Stitching.
Next up is my take on Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love
I found some Zoo type card with different animal fur patterns on and inside it had animal stencils too, I had originally bought the pack for the boys.
I layed the relevant animal stencils on top of one another and drew round then on to Black Cardstock and then cut them out and drew inside the outlines using a White Sukura Pens.
Inside I wrote the Journalling on to White Cardstock and cut them in to little strips. I used my Black Sukura Pen for the writing. For the Title I found a font I liked and printed it out then drew round each letter on to Red Card Stock and used my Black Sukura Pen again to do each letter outline.

Thanks for popping by :)

Morning all, what a really wet day it is here, It's tipping it down.
Today I wanted to share my Card I made at A Promarkers Workshop at Stamp N Craft I had a fantastic time and good natter lol Beth and the team were so nice and friendly if your ever in Yeovil then pop along and visit the shop. I learnt lots of techniques and things I didn't know. I also got to have a play with some Alcohol Inks too, looking forward to having more of a play with them hopefully in the week.

So hear is my card:
Cute little fairy image coloured with Promarkers :)
And the image was mounted on to cardstock and then some white lace that I coloured with a Promarker and 4 Rhinestone Stars placed in each corner which were also coloured with a Promarker which I would have never thought to do :)
I loved the techniques I learnt and couldn't wait to get home and have a go with my new Sweet Pea Jennifer Nilsson's Sugar and Spice Dragon which I bought there :)
Sorry about the red in the photo it doesn't show the shading very well, but I'm rather impressed with her and adore my Blender Pen another purchase :) Think I went a bit Blender happy on the image below on the egg part but think it looks rather cool.
Need to get better at my Stamping though as sometimes my images don't come out hole still :( but I'm getting there.

Sorry I have been rather quiet on the blogging and blog hopping, I have my Eldest's and Youngest's Joint Birthday Party Coming up next weekend so got to get the final bits sorted for that. Made some Cars Pit Passes for invites which I will share with you all soon.

Till then Thanks for popping by and love reading comments so keep them coming :)

My Take on Shimelle's 4x6 August Photo Love :)

Here's my take on Shimelle's August 4x6 Photo Love I enjoyed making this LO and love the papers I used which were Echo Park's Country Drive Papers.
I used some little black alpha stickers for a little title.
And the main title I used plain chipboard letters which I coloured using a Promarker,
I stuck the letter Y on the actual front page of the layout so when Closed it read the full word other wise it wouldn't have fitted right. I cut some card 8x 4 and folded it in half and stuck it down to create the fold instead of doing Shimelle's way of sewing some sleeves together. I would have done Shimelle's way as it makes sense but I haven't got a album at them moment so my layouts are being stacked in a Pizza Box for the time being.

For the borders I used the Tree side of Echo Park's Country Drive Leafy Tree Tops and then the Little Ladies chequered blue side. :)
I cut out one of the Country Drive's Journalling Cards and wrote the journalling using my Black Sukura Glaze Pen :)
I had been eyeing Echo Park's Country Drive for some time and was lucky enough to get some of the papers along with some other nice papers and gorgeous embellishments in a Grab Box from Handmade Hannah Crafts :) The felt flower was also from the Grab Box :)
