Shake It Baby!

 With it being a year of losing my mojo, Christmas has honestly been the kick in the pants I needed to get creating again.

I got home from work one day last week and just really wanted to make a couple of shaker cards, so I got making and here is what I finished up with....

Paper - Craft Smith, bought from the warehouse ages ago!
Die - My Favorite Things Merry & Bright
Sequins from my sequin box
Stickers - Rosie's Studio

Die - My Favorite Things
Paper - Craft Smith (as above)
Sequins - Loose Lemon Crafts

Thanks for dropping by, see you soon

Mix It Up Challenge - Anything Goes + Optional Stamping

 OMG!!!!!!!!!! I am so in love with this "We Herd" stamp set from Wafflecrafts.
I purchased it from Ribbon Rose who seem to have started stocking Wafflecraft's stamps, the sets are a bit pricey but this one is really versatile so I was ok with the price.
I have already made 5 cards with this set and planning a christmas one or two

I have used this one as my DT card over at Mix It Up Challenge where our theme is stamping, but only physical stamping, no digis.

Which brings me to my next segway, I used to make cards with digi images ALL THE TIME, but I have noticed lately that I have reverted back to my beginnings and I have gone back to physical stamps.
I actually think my style has changed again and I also have so many issues with my stupid printer it is just frustrating every time I try to print.
I have so many gorgeous digis maybe I should invest in a proper printer.

Anyway, I hope you will come and play along with us

MIUC Make Your Own Background

 I know, I know, yet again it has been almost a year between posts.
I ma not even going to promise to try and do better because I never do.

But I do have a card for this months Mix It Up Challenge. 
Make Your Own Background is the theme.

I made the base with glimmer mists, which I am happy to say that pass the longevity test.  The last time I used them was 4 or 5 years ago and they still worked like a charm :)
I then stamped with distress ink in vintage photo on a hero arts background stamp.
I cut the sentiment with  lawn fawn giant die, I have to say these dies are really awesome for a quick card with loads of impact.  No questions about what the card is for.

So I guess that is a wrap until next time, let's hope it isn't a year away.
