A-maze-ing Dad

Hello everyone, it's Kat here!

I thought the brand new maze themed collection from MFT would be perfect for a Fathers' Day card, but I can see it being great for so many other occasions too and can't wait to create more a-maze-ing designs with it - lol!


For this card I used one of the plastic mazes inside a shaker pouch and you can even get the teeny metal ball to pop inside...it's so cute!


If you would like more details on how I created this card, including more pictures, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Dance

I'm doing a little Happy Dance today with this cutie from Stamping Bella.  She comes in a pack of 2 images (a large and a smaller version) and the sentiment.  I stamped the smaller image on the insert to match the outside.

Saying Hi with a Cute CAS Otter!

Hey everyone it's Elaine, back more inspiration today here on the Dies to Die For blog.

I've been playing with more of my MFT Stamps collection, because the cuteness is hard to resist. ;)

Just look at this little otter...



Right? So cute.

I kept it really simple on this one, and I love how it turned out!

Colouring Medium: Copic Markers

Rock and Paws for Father's Day

Good morning lovely crafty peeps.

Hope you are well and enjoying the glorious weather we are having in the UK - I know for some it is a struggle with the heat but for me personally I love it :o)

Debs here with my little Monday Morning Inspiration for

DIES TO DIE FOR

I made this card only yesterday morning with the purchases I made at DtDF the day before in Telford - so I broke my record for using new stash the fastest.

There is a 'meaning' behind the choice of images on this card - when Jack was very small he and John would play a game where Jack would say Dog and John would reply Doggie - they would do this repeatedly and for some strange reason they thought it was so funny - the best bit for me was hearing them laugh so much together - so when I saw this set of stamps I just knew I had to have them!!!


Card Inside:

John also used to play both the drums and the guitar (not both at the same time lol!!!)

Card Ingredients:

Image: Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Stamp Set
Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Die Set
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Paper: Best Creations Rock Star
Sentiment Stamps for Inside: Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy

Have a fabulous day.

Penguins on the beach!

Happy Fathers Day!

It's Faye here today :)

 

So, you've seen the Whimsy Stamps Release this month, right? It is absolutely crammed full of gorgeousness, including these two penguins. Even penguins need a holiday...

Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you get up to.

If you are local to Telford, I will be demonstrating with Copics for Dies to Die For at Create it, so pop by and say hi :) I know exactly how many goodies Tracy and Andy pack into the van, so it's well worth a visit if you can make it!


Supplies...
Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a great day.

You are Mermazing!

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

Ok, so I know there is a whole new release from MFT but I have only just got around to playing with the mermaids from the previous release!


I think mermaids are just wonderful for experimenting with fun hair colours.

Now, hands up who wants to be a mermaid?!


If you would like more details on how I created this card, including more pics and Copic colours used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Sending Hedgehugs

Hey everyone it's Elaine, back more inspiration today here on the Dies to Die For blog. Do not panic, do not adjust your screens, today I'm sharing a non-Stamping Bella card! Ha!

I am a sucker for cute, and I have a serious thing for hedgehogs, so the MFT Stamps Happy Hedgehogs stamp set is a firm favourite. I also have a new fixation - creating cute card backgrounds like the one below.


Adorable, isn't it? That cute hedgie, and the little mushrooms/toadstools. I just cannot... I had so much fun colouring this with my Copic markers.

Colouring Medium: Copic Markers

That's it from me today! Happy shopping and happy stamping!

Those flowers again!

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!
