Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!
I'm a crazy cat lady I'm afraid. There has always been a cat in my life right since I was a baby. Even during a couple of years where I wasn't able to have my own, I still had the pleasure of the furry residents at my parents. I have been owned by several hairy overlords over the years, and I am currently owned by Rosie who was adopted from the Blue Cross six years ago. She is twelve now but shows no signs of relaxing her reign of terror.
Morning all, today for my Dies To Die For make I am bringing you a dose
of Whimsy fun from Dustin Pike, guaranteed to raise a smile
Thankfully I didn't see any of this kind of drama at the beach yesterday! The nearest we got to that was a small child throwing an absolute tantrum because she'd been told to return an item that she'd "acquired" from somewhere along the prom. I'd rather take my chance with a shark!
Images all painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and fussy cut, The shark is a separate stamp to the porthole (just in case you were thinking it was an all in one) so the hole has been layered over the shark.
This time around AYLI are asking for your Favourite Shape for a card
(but NOT a square or rectangle please)
Personally, I love squares and rectangles so I had a bit of a job with this one. I cut circles and ovals, and weird shapes, but somehow none of them floated my boat (or would stand up) so I'm afraid I ended up with a rather predictable hexagon card. I do like a good hexagon and use the shape a lot ON cards, but haven't made many AS cards. I quite enjoyed it!
I have used:
Rodney from CC Designs
MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes sentiment set
Lawn Fawn 6x6 papers - Snow Day
MFT DieNamics Stitched Hexagon Stax
Rodders has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and I used a tiny bit of some thick and goopy white paint that I bought for his freckles. His nose highlight is just bare paper.
And this is the FIRST of my Christmas cards made this year!
Did you know that LOTV are doing stamps again? Hurrah! They have recently released two polymer stamp sets, one for the boys, and one with cupcakes and cute animals. I had to have both, naturally, but hubby has bought me one of them for my birthday (grin).
Anyhoo, let's be hearing about your favourite shape for card base (that isn't a square or a rectangle)
Oh me oh my, what is the world coming to .... since Himself lost his job last year, I seem to have had even less time to do things, even though he is here and I'm at work, so to find time to actually make a card to enter a challenge, well, it was a challenge in itself.
Hello peeps, hope you are ok. It's been a bit of a damp start to the weekend, but actually, I really don't mind. It gives me a great reason to park my ample behind at my craft bench and get inky without feeling too guilty!
I seem to be having a phase of extra CAS cards at the moment, and here's another one
I used to doodle my stitches onto cards, but then came the advent of stitched dies and I have never looked back. I love that this tiny piece of detail can add so much to your layers without being intrusive, it is the perfect finishing touch.
