Hello, Beautiful...

So during the week I made a few cards using Lil' Inker Designs stamps and since I had the stamps and inks out I continued to make a few more over the weekend. 

I normally prefer to colour my images - but I have a rather large collection of 'solid' type stamps that until now I haven't used due to not enough ink colours or I just haven't been happy with the stamped result. I finally invested in a few sets of ink pads (Gina K, Delicata Metals Pack and Altenew). I then bought some Neenah Solar White (Smooth) card (which I noticed had positive reviews on several facebook craft groups) and I've had my MISTI for awhile now and knew that this would eliminate any stamping mistakes I made. I'm super happy with these cards - they're simple. I just wanted to have fun with some different colour combinations and test out my new inks and paper!



 Above card entered into Addicted to CAS - Seaside challenge (Ink Colours: Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea, and Blue Lagoon)



Did you get much card making done over the weekend?

Reminder that Craftie Cafe are having a design team call - they're pretty much the only online store in Australia (that I am aware of) that stock a good supply of Lil' Inker Design stamps and dies. Details on the call can be found here

Happy Crafting!

New Challenge...

New Challenge up on CAS(E) this sketch!

Here are my two cards based on this weeks sketch. Apologies for the darkness in my photos, if I take the photo too late in the afternoon I can't take advantage of the natural light - and I was too impatient to wait for tomorrow...

Make your own background...

This week has been crazy busy! Sunday was Phoebe's baptism, Monday a public holiday...and I feel like I've done nothing all week but clean, cook and clean again! and....and...my house still looks messy! Plus side - we wont go hungry!

This week I did manage to make a few cards. I wanted to give my new Gina K inks a go, so after making a swatch sheet I got out some Lil Inker stamps and got creative. I created these with the intention of entering them in a few challenges (some of which I missed the deadline...ah well...). 

The first card is very feminine, purples, pink, and yellow. The second more masculine - monochromatic using shades of grey and black. The stamp set is Lil' Inkers - Hello Beautiful.






Both cards I managed to stamp off the edge which is CAS-ual Fridays current challenge. P.S They have a design team call which is open internationally. 

Happy Crafting!

Guest Designer for...

Today I am guest designing for CAS(E) this sketch!

I was a little nervous - as I generally don't do many sketch challenges. But when I got the sketch - it was fun and simple and there was so many ways to get inspired by it.

Here is the sketch:



Here are the cards. Yup! I made two cards!




Above card entered into The Flower Challange #6



Hope you can play along!

Monkey Card

Firstly, my little goal of keeping my blog up to date by using the app is not working! The app. is pretty basic and has some serious issues that I wont even bother going into! For those who do like my card inspirations I can say that my instagram is regularly updated - come over and say hello!

My Little Paper World on Instagram - here

So on to the card...

I'm a little in love with monkeys at the moment - so don't be surprised if the next few cards are of monkeys! This little guy is a unity itty bitty stamp. I also get a chance to use my new dies from Waffle Flower. This is a 5x7 sized card. Love it!




I coloured them in with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. 
The second card I made (below) is smaller using My Little Paper World Tribal nesting dies.

Blogger the app - and a card...

So in an attempt to 'blog' more, I've downloaded the app onto my phone. I think (hope) that this will help make it easier for me to maintain my new year's resolution of keeping my blog up to date. Theoretically it's easier to access and I can quickly upload all my card photos too..So let's hope this works!

Last week I finally received my Unity December KOTM (It took the longest route to Australia!) and I knew I had to stamp this flower immediately...

I made two cards and I am still creatively forming ideas for it - I seriously love this flower.





I coloured the flowers using Prismacolor pencils - I decided to use a two colour combo to colour the flowers in. I also used gold foiling to add some interest.
