Guess the film? My ATC

I spotted a challenge today at 'Haunted Design House' that piqued my curiosity and WAS a bit of a challenge with the stamps I have!
But NO challenge is too difficult
Muhahahahaha :D

Being a dog lover and a Veterinary Nurse yet afraid of scary movies 'Cujo' by Stephen King disturbed me a little  (LOT!) all those years ago!
So the theme 'Stephen King Nightmare' was perfect :D
I was a glutton for punishment as I read the book first and then watched the film, needless to say the book was better but that's usually the case!

To make my ATC I firstly stamped the paw from the Good luck set in memento tuxedo black, then in Fired brick DI the splat from Free Your Imagination for blood, the LIVE from Live your dreams all from the AMAZING  VISIBLE IMAGE and a gorgeous little 'Water droplets' (again in fired brick red for blood) stamp from Designs by Ryn (maiden voyage for this stamp but I love it :o))
Added some fibres and then glued to red mesh and black card.
It was fun :D

Thanks for popping in guys
Much Love

'Create Art' with Visible Image stamps

How are we? :D

Thanks for joining me today for 'Soozie Tooseday' my delightful duty with Visible Images

Money well spent in my book......quality that lasts forever and ever :D

Ok so my creation this week is........

I loved making this......my favourite colours and I love this set it's the Beauty is Art set it is gorgeous and very sophisticated I think and I love the fact you can accessorize it.
My next trip to Ikea i'm getting 3 box frames and i'm going to create myself some pictures for our bedroom ;D
So firstly I stamped the torso in versamark and then onto black card and heat embossed with 'Heat it up' silver tinsel, cut it out and heat embossed the Grecian key borders,Grecian corners, create and art in Primary Ebony onto red card stock and cut out, layered the words with black card,then red again.

I heat embossed the Polka dot background with Wow bright white onto red card and then covered in a red mesh, pieced it altogether and matted and layered onto some black dotted paper from J'adore, then black, then a shiny striped black from Hobbycraft then red again.
I added a red beaded ring as a body piercing, a length of an old bracelet as a belt and a piece of a velvet choker for the necklace and attached a silver heart, along with the 'Create and Art' attached with foam pads.

Classy Clara from Visible Image

Well hello again :D
Today's a bit of an unscheduled blog, I was going to combine it with my next 'Soozie Tooseday' for Visible Image but it was a bit too much for one blog and the star of the show deserves her own pitch :D
So without further ado......meet Clara.....isn't she divine?.....shes a 'steam punkily classy lady' who oozes style :D......a certain Edgar thinks so too! ;o)

Unfortunately I just couldn't get a decent picture :( 

But you get the idea and if you pop over to our Visible Image Blog you will see all our design teams very different creations, i'm so proud of Mark & Helen and all my teamies, I feel so lucky to be part of the ace team.

Firstly I attached some papers from the 'Simply Gorjuss' paper pack and then cut a horizontal piece for my dado rail, then heat embossed the gorgeous Chandelier and 'Life is Grand' sentiment from the Chandelier Set in Wow's primary ebony......such a beautiful set and I can't wait to play with it some more.
I also embossed the cat from the Good Luck set.
Made some drapes and a pelmet from a Spellbinders Majestic Elements frame die with some classy black card from hobbycraft, attached and blinged them all up, thesentiment was put in a sissix die.....the gorgeous Clara I coloured with promakers and cut out (very patiently haha).....I wanted to give her a surroundings that fitted her class and think I acheived that, i'm only sorry I couldn't get a better picture!
Hope you like her and thanks for popping by and if you decide to purchase Clara, we'd love to see what you've done with her......:o)
Much Love

Monochrome 'Max with Salam' @ Visible Image

Hi Y'all
Just a quick blog today, I've been banning myself from heat embossing as i'm addicted, now that's no bad thing but I thought it only right I play with ink and only ink for a change and only 1 ink !!!
So I've brought to you my 'quickie1 ink monochrome Max'

Now this is just to show people that you don't have to colour images in or have lots of different coloured inks to create a nice quick card and you could give this card to a child and they can colour the image in their selves! Simple card using white and black card stock, a 6x6 blank card, the stamps are the wunderbarrs Visible Images Maxbrick wallLarge tall grass, black cat (I call him Salam) from the Good luck set and the birds from the awesome Free your imagination set and all inked in black soot DI......simples :D
oh and 3 black gems I added for the cat collar!
My Steve liked this soooo much,  he asked if i'd make his best buddy one, he's married a U.S Marine and moved to California and he's missing him bless, they have a 'Bromance' going on haha :D......and i think he chose Max as a 'hint' for a phone call!
So I obliged and made one into an easel card as requested and Steve also wanted Best Friend & Thinking of you adding from the fab More than words, using 'thinking of you' as the stopper, and added to the Polka dot background base, some black pearls and a silver charm to finish.....job done! :D
Fab for a quick card!
I do wonder if Jefferson will colour Max in LOL

Check out our new addition to the characters Clara she's gorgeous and is good old elegant Edgar's new lady friend ;o)... they're both HERE too, so watch this space......you never know they might have 'kiddie characters' together one day,awwww that'd be nice :D
But then again Max & Molly may just beat them too it!!!.....I do hope so, they'd have 'funky' kids ;o)

Only a few days left to pop in and take part in our April Challenge 'Get Stamping'
See you soon or if not at our fab group page
Ciao for now
Much love

Thank you

Hello all my lovely followers :D

I hit the 50 mark today!!!!
(50 followers and NOT 50 years old because I certainly wont be whoop whooping then! )
But a whopping 51 in fact!
whoop whoop
Chuffed to bits

 So I wanted to say a MAHOOOOOOSIVE thank you to you all

You've made my day
Much Love 

'Molly Loves Max' @Visible Image

Hello again :D
It's DT day for me.......it's Soozie Tooseday :o)
How are we all?
Have you entered our 'April Challenge - Get Stamping'
There are some fabulous entries :D
If you haven't checked into our Facebook group lately then you maybe don't know that Edgar has a lady friend and  if you love Edgar you are sure to LOVE Clara, she is amazing, very 'steampunkily classy'!

If you pop over to Visible Image there is such an array of fabulous stamps, you'll be spoilt for choice and no matter what your taste is, you WILL find many stamps you'll love and they're proving to be quite an addiction for all you crafty folk......grab a cuppa, treat yourself to a couple of biscuits and happy shopping :D

Ok now for today's project, I made an easel card with my favourite little girl Molly, who's got a big heart this week, she's a wee bit smitten with the very cute Max, she adores him, she thinks he's funky!

I coloured them both with promarkers and then die cut Max's head with the sissix heart die and later used 3 red gems to enhance Molly's thought bubble.

 I've used 6 stamps in total, all from Visible Image of course, additional to my 2 favourite characters I heat embossed the Grunge check background with Wow Vanilla white onto red card for the floor, stamped the funky Zebra background with black soot DI and matted onto red then black card. 
I heat embossed the Polka dot background with wow bright white onto black card and used the Joy vintage flourish (with a red eyelet) and precious hearts dies (love these) & black gems.

 Then I  used the Live Laugh Love stamp and heat embossed in wow ebony and just masked and switched the 'Love much' around for my motto of 'Much Love' :D
Put it altogether and to finish I used a couple of skull & crossbones from my treasure chest, a red rose and 2 black eyelets.

So Molly's heart is happily heavy thinking of her Max.
Ain't LOVE grand!

Talking of love i just want to say a HOOOOOGE thank you to Watty & Madge AKA Mark & Helen for having me on their AWESOME team with their AWESOME stamps and for ALL the hard work they do and the perfect bosses that they are XXX

I particularly enjoyed this creation using my favourite colour combo, hope you like it and I hope you have a great day :D
Much Love

How is everybody?
It's Soozie Tooseday again for my favourite stamp company!
Their stamps are the 'Pièce de résistance' and if you haven't already tried them you WILL love them, you get a perfect image EVERY single time you stamp with them.

Visible Image had a fantastic weekend at Ally pally the 'Three Stampateers' did good, and Madge (aka Helen) got to be in the Palace ;o).

Definitely my favourite character, she's funky and very versatile.
I wanted to give her some sparkle and prove she can look good in Pink!

After stamping Molly's image twice and fully colouring one with promarkers, I coloured the teddy of the second image and skulls and cut these out along with Molly.....the teddy and skulls I used my glue pen and glamour dust for some sparkle and decoupaged these onto the Mollster, I then stamped the Brick Wall with versamark and heat embossed in  'Heat it up pink' onto a white tag, then in distressed embossing powder peeled paint used the Large Tall grass against the wall, on top of the wall I heat embossed the black cat from the Good Luck Cat set in WOW's primary ebony, added some bling from my stash for Molly and her Cat's collar and her Teddies dickie bow :D, used some tumbled glass DI for the sky and mounted on layers of teal shimmer card and pink mirror board from creata with pink gems, finishing with some twine and ribbon and some silver and a diamonte skull and Molly letters on a head pin from my 'treasure chest', crop-a-diled 4 holes, added pink flower eyelets,  my charm dangly to one, 2 for the purple gem flowers and 1 for the ribbons, really enjoyed making this tag, I adore Molly :o)

My 1st 'recycled' item :D

Hi Guys
Just a quickie blog as its dinner time.......i'm dieting and starving!
This is my first time of 'recycling' anything......I picked an old storm jar we had, dusted off the cobwebs lol.
I am a lover of candles and it will get used.....I filled the base with some black and red sand, placed a church candle in and rooted around for some silver from my treasure chest stash and an old leather choker, so I've 'up cycled' some jewellery too :D
I placed and glued some black mesh ribbon around the jar and then stamped (with black stazon) some red ribbon with the amazing Grunge Polka Dot Background from Visible Image, then glued this over the mesh.
I then stamped 3 wooden hearts with versamark and heat embossed one with Black Twinkle, one with Primary ebony & stamped with visible the images Polka dot background in Bright white and then the third with red glitz.

I used the Live Your Dreams and shrank plastic'd ( first time I've used this and thanks Cheremane for letting me try before I buy) this and added chain, added a few charms and voila!
I quite like it, its funky :D
Hope you do and I hope you have a great evening.....i'm off for my dinner....its my fave spaghetti bolognese mmmmmmm yummy
Much Love

It's a twisted easel card and all the stamps were heat embossed with WOW Primary Ebony (I need to buy another, less than half a jar left, i'm addicted!)
The fabulowsooo Visible Image stamps I have used are 2 from this wonderful Father's Day Set, such a clean crisp image as with ALL their expertly made stamps :D attached via 3d pads for dimension and to act as the stopper

Visible Image - Soozie Tuesday's 'Man Motorbike'

Helloooooo :D
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and ate lots of chocolate YUM!......Percy is no more :(

Thank you for stopping by for my blog today, be sure to pop on over and enter our NEW April Challenge of 'GET STAMPING' (No digi's allowed) at our Visible Image blog for the rules & chance to win £10 to spend on the fabulous stamps at Visible Image STAMPS and see our excellent design team's ceations :D

My creation today is another 'Man Card' to add to my sparse collection 

Stamp wise I used the Motorbike and heat embossed in WOW Primary Ebony, the detail on this bike is amazing! From the 'More than words' interchangeable collection I used Happy Birthday 'Set 7' and heat embossed in WOW Primary Burgundy Red for a rich mulled wine colour, I also heat embossed with this for the awesome Harlequin background and layered on a burgundy mirror board with white cardstock, then attached to an 8 x 6 inch 400gsm card, raising the greeting with dimensional pads. 
So no ink, all heat embossed, I actually prefer heat embossing to ink of late, I think it gives a much classier and more prestigious end product for simpler cards :D
