Up in the Air

I'm sharing my mid-week post for Dies to Die For featuring some fabulous images from MFT called Up in the Air.  I've also used some stitched cloud dies and stitched scene builder dies so there's a bit of 'stitched' theme running in the background!

Prosecco Time for Birthday


Hello lovely crafty peeps Debs here with a little Monday Inspiration 
using some gorgeous stash from 



This weekend I was fortunate enough to participate in a Copic Colouring Class with our fabulous and mega talented Faye and this was an image we practiced colouring folds on - so when I got home I thought it would be a good idea to finish it and make it into a little card to share with you today.


And here's a link to all the gorgeous goodies I used:

Thinkingofyouabella

Morning, it's Faye here :)


A quickie from me today as I'm at Merriott in Somerset. Excited!

 You've probably noticed that Thinkingofyouabella is one of my fave's. I gave her a frosty blue look in December, but before I decided to that, I had started her as a blonde. I'm not one to chuck away a half coloured image, so her she is!

Believe in magic

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

I was looking at the MFT tall tag duo dies recently and thought they would make brilliant bookmarks, so...what do you reckon?!


I have any number of small cute stamps that could go on this size bookmark but really there was only ever one choice...it had to be a gorgeous magical unicorn!


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

Have a magical day!

Bitty Bears and Birthday Bears

It's time for my mid-week creation and I've been busy making a box card using Bitty Bears from MFT.  I've inked and watercoloured 5 of the bears and a few of the accessories together with a couple of items from the Birthday Bears stamp set for the flaps of my box card.

I added some Stitched Clouds from Memory Box and a 'Wishes' sentiment die. The one I used was WPlus9 but MFT Dienamics Cause for Celebration is a really close match.  The stamped 'Birthday' comes from the Birthday Bears stamp set (I used the "Birthday Bear Hugs" stamp and masked off the 'Bear Hugs' part)

The foliage around the fence is 
Memory Box Lavish Branch and the fence is also from Memory Box.

Winter Birdy Love

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here :)


I thought I'd share a card I made using Winter Birdy Love from the latest Whimsy Stamps Release with you. I decided to colour them up as robins. Aren't they just adorable? I've teamed them up with a doodle from FaDoodles Too (also from this month's release) and a sentiment from Scripty Occassions. Sorted!

Penguin Tree

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


Are you getting back into the swing of things after Christmas?

 For my card today, I thought I would team up Stamping Bella Winter Backdrop with Chick Tree.

 

After I had fun turning Sweaty Chicks into Sweaty Penguins last year... OMG, no, in December 2016! I thought I would do the same with Chick Tree. I don't mind telling you, it was fiddly ;)

Viking Henry

Hello peeps, and welcome to the first Saturday of the New Year!  Squirrel here today with a dose of adventurous spirit for those men in your life (young or old).


and the list of wonderfulness used is

The font set used is "A Hint of Lime" from Die-Versions (bought from DTDF a long time ago) but any small font would work, this one is only 1/4" (6mm) and was a challenge!
The Impression Obsession Alphabet Plain LC would make a good substitute.

Bee Happy!

Happy Friday and Happy New Year!

It's Kat here and I think I'm finally all done with Christmas crafting, at least for a few months (lol!), so I've been making punny cards again:-)


Isn't this little guy just un-bee-lievably cute?!

Just in case anyone is interested; I like to research my colouring (yes, even for something as simple as this!) and cartoon bees always have a yellow face, but real bees have black faces, so I tried both and decided I liked the black better...well, as close as I could get to black whilst still being able to see his eyes!


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

Have a bee-yoo-tiful day!

This release will be in store in a couple of weeks.

Lunar Animals

It's hump-day already so I'm here with my mid-week creation for Dies to Die For.  I bought a ruler where the back opens up and you can slide in a decorated card strip which is then sealed back inside when you clip the back piece in place again.

The ruler is fairly narrow, so I needed to use some dinky images. The Lunar Animal cuties from Mama Elephant were the perfect size so I created a line-up of them.  They were nice and easy to watercolour and I shaded around the edge of the panel with blue ink to create some sky.

I hope you like my little project which was really easy to make.






 Here's a closer view of the critters:

I Heart You

Morning all, Squirrel here today, and this is my last post this year, eeeek!

I may, or may not, have made a little purchase or two from the
latest Stamping Bella release - and then wondered what to do with the stamp.

As Gru would say ...... Liiiiightbulllllb!


What else do you do with photos of mates - you pin them to your corkboard
along with all your little sticky notes of course!


Whatever you are up to for New Year's Eve, I hope it is enjoyable.

See you in 2018
Hugs to all

Reindeer Games

Hello peeps, Squirrel here today and I have a little challenge for you

Can you name me all 10 of Santa's reindeer?

On your marks, get set, go!

The correct answer will be over on my own blog.



I used Die-Versions A Hint of Lime for the lettering but any font of the
right size would do, or even a Merry word die like this

Thanks everyone for all your visits and your loving support during my first
year on the DTDF team, it means a lot.  All that remains for me to do this week is
to wish you all a very
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
but I will be back again next week (lol)

Sparkly Thinkingofyouabella

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


You might have guessed I LOVE Thinkingofyouabella! I fancied giving her a bit of a Christmas outing, so I decided to play with her.

Initially, I was going to make her blonde. In fact, I have a half coloured Thinkingofyouabella on my desk, with that very colour hair. But, just as I finished colouring her hair, I had a light bulb moment and thought she might look quite nice with frosty blue hair and a sequin top. Taaa Daaaaaa!

Jingle Elves Story

Good morning everyone, it is Squirrel here today.

I hope your festive plans are coming along and all is joyful.  Our Christmas is currently going to hell in a rapidly accelerating handcart and I am not sure there are any brakes!

Never mind, it will be what it will be, and we will still enjoy it I'm sure.

Today I have a little mash-up for you, and I'm not talking potatoes.


So, the list of deliciousness used for this is:
The bottom border die is also Die-Namics (I think it is Dainty Doily Border) but it has
been retired by MFT.  There are still some  related products available in the DTDF store, just search for Dainty Doily.

That's me for today, I'm off to continue my panic elsewhere!

Hugs to all

Happy Friday...it's Kat here!

Are you all getting excited for Christmas?!

The adorable snowman and sentiment are from a Neat & Tangled set and there are lots of other gorgeous images in the set too...the penguin is simply irresistible!

Gingerbread Lucy

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  Well, it is well and truly December this weekend!
I hope all of you that have snow are snug and warm (and safe) indoors.  

Squirrel here today feeling a little bit on the chilly side but I am here with a little heart warmer for you.
Last week my DTDF Teamie, Kat(Festive Bottle Tags) showed you how to use this die as a stunning tag for a wine bottle, but I have used mine to make a door hanger
(yes, I know it's not on a door, it's actually hanging from one of my saucepan hooks!)




Have a lovely (if wintry) weekend everyone!

Hugs, Squirrel x
