About Me

My photo
Hi, I am Ivy and 55, I have 4 children 3 in their 20s and my youngest is 10 and live with my partner in a lovely village in Branston, Lincs. I started this blog only recently and feeling very proud of myself as have not done it before. Well, I found a new passion in my crafting only recently and that is colouring Magnolia stamps, CC designs, My Besties and Whimsy and I am pretty sure the list will go on lol. As I know a lot of you are professionals at it and maybe some of you are not, regardless it would be great if you would like to FOLLOW ME to my Cabin to share, inspire or just for a chat with a lovely brew... that would be fantastic!! Hope to see you soon xx

BIRTHDAY BOY

BIRTHDAY JOURNEY


I MADE THIS CARD FOR MY 27 YEARS OLD SON IN MAY AND WAS QUITE DELIGHTED WITH IT. 


I USED A 6' X 12' CARD BASE AND MATTED IT WITH BLACK CARD AND I DID THE BACKGROUND WITH TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS OXIDE INKS AND I USED MODELLING PASTE THROUGH TIM HOLTS STENCILS AND CAME OUT JUST HOW I WANTED IT.  I STAMPED A CUT OUT THE MAN IMAGE BY DYAN REAVELEY AFTER I DID THE SAME BACKGROUND ON A WHITE WATERCOLOUR CARDSTOCK AND MOUNTD IT ON FOAM PADS. I ADDED A WINGED METAL KEY FROM MY STASH. AND FINALLY STAMPED A SENTIMENT FROM STAMPENDOUS SENTIMENTS AND MATTED IT ON BLACK. 

I WOULD LIKE TO ENTER THIS CARD INTO-
