The wanderer returns.

I know it's been a while and no excuses, just been a bit tied up.

So without further ado here are some cards I've made recently.
To be honest haven't been doing too much crafting lately.

For the first two cards I used a Crealies patchwork die No.1. I saw this die on Eileen Godwin's page and I just had to get it. I know I shall be using this die a lot as I love it's versatility. The first card I made for my Mom's 92nd birthday last week. I cut the letters on my Slice.

This second one is my first attempt at using the dies. So easy to do.

Well I just had to use one of my Gorjuss stamps for this card. My Granddaughter Jessica loves these girls and has several items featuring this particular Gorjuss girl. The papers are from the GG paper sets.

I have used another of the GG to decorate a mirror which I will show you another time (well I forgot to take a photo). I also made a lovely owl cushion but forgot to take a photo before I gave it to Jessica. What am I like?

Enjoy the bank holiday
Bye for now

Mixing it up

Today I want to share with you three makes from this week. Quite a productive week for me at the moment.
The first card is one I  made for my BIL & his wife. I have used a Spellbinders die and Tim Holrz sentiment border and quote. Of course I had to get a bit of glitter in on the act so used some by Martha Stuart

This next one is for my Mom on Mothers Day tomorrow here in the UK. Another Spellbinder die and I layered the butterfly by cutting out an extra one from the diecut. The letters and banner are Clarity Stamp

Now the next creation is something a little different for me. I was inspired by the gorgeous creation
by Rachel on Youtube. Now my mixed media creation may not come anywhere near as good as Rachel's but I really enjoyed making it and that's what it's all about for me. I think I am going to create a mixed media journal now that I am hooked.
I created the background by spraying Cosmic shimmer sprays and water. Added texture with white brilliance ink through sequin waste. I used texture paste through a stencil for the branches leaves and birds, then coloured them with twinkling H2Os and a touch of Creative expressions gilding wax. I stamped the girl in the moon stamp with black Versafine and coloured with T H2Os. The flower stamps are JOFY and Inkilicious (I think). The white were stamped & white embossed directly to the card but the JOFY were stamped onto parchment, coloured, cut out and stuck to the card. 

Well that's about it for today.
Hope you like what you've seen and I would love to hear your comments.
