The Greeting Farm - I think you’re Fintastic

Hi Guys! 

So, at the moment as I'm sure a lot of you have heard, my home state of New South Wales, and most of Australia is burning. The entire place is on fire. This is the worst fire season Australia has seen in a lot of years. Currently, over 12 million acres have burned, 23 people have died and over 400 homes have been lost! I am in a small part of the state that has gone unaffected at the moment. So, I am helping to raise much needed funds for the Rural Fire Service (volunteers that fight these fires). I am donating all proceeds less postage of all card sales between now and the 20th of January 2020 to the NSW Rural Fire Service.

To purchase my cards, please head over to my etsy. Or, if you'd like to donate directly to the Rural Fire Service, head to this link - DONATE HERE

You can see more information about my donations on my facebook page 

Now, on to my card, and something slightly less terrifying!
This card was made using the stamp Maisea from The Greeting Farm, coloured using copics and fussy cut out. I have then mounted with dimensional adhesive to a patterned paper card base. The papers are from Echo Park, and the local dollar store (the Kraft one)
I have stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, using Memento Black ink and Kaisercraft Seafoam ink.
Here's a close up of the mermaid, with Copic colours used below.
Skin: E55, E11, E53 and E51
Tail: BG18, Bg13, BG32 and BG11

I am entering this card into the below challenges:

Some Odd Girl - Hello

Hello again! 

I’ve been back in the craft room, over a couple of sittings, to create this bright and fun card to share. 

So to start this card, I coloured this stamp from Some Odd Girl with my copic markers (list below) and set her aside until I had time to make the card. 

I had time this evening, after putting Amy (the baby girl) to bed. I used a white card base, layered with black and then white, before popping on some bright patterned papers, these are all from my box of offcuts!! 

I then used a sticker from Jillibean Soup layered with more black cardstock, and fussy cut out. I have of course popped the main image up using dimensional adhesive and done my signature doodling all around the edges of each layer. 

Here’s a close up for you

Copics used

Skin: E11, E55, E53, E51 and E50

Lawn Fawn Dinosaur birthday card

Hi guys!
I’m back again with another card to share. 

This one is a masculine birthday card, featuring some lawn fawn and some odd girl stamps. 

For this card, I stamped my dinosaurs (Lawn Fawn) and used a combination of green copic markers polka dotted to create texture. I then fussy cut them out and popped them aside. The card base is grey, layered with patterned papers from Kaisercraft. The party hats are from a Some Odd Girl Stamp set, coloured again with my copics. 
Here is a close up of the embellishments and the texture on my dinosaurs. 

I am entering this card in to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Party Time and the My Favorite Things,
colour combination challenge. And crafters castle anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!

Couture Creations - Peony friendship card

Hey there!

Two posts in two days 😲

I have another card to share from my creating last night. We reorganised the shared office just two days ago, making it much easier to get in and craft and feel inspired. 

So, onto the card! This card uses one of my most recent favourite stamps, from Couture Creations “Pretty Peony”. It’s such an easy stamp to colour up. I’ve used my copics in R24, R32 and R22 to colour these two peonies. I also used patterned papers from Avery Elle and Hampton Art to layer. 
The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s sentiments” and the little bumble bee sticker is from a REALLY old sticker sheet, that I don’t have the name of any more. 

I have used the sketch from Just Add Ink and the 3 colour with black and white stripes from Color my heart with my 3 colours being pink, blue and a touch of yellow, this challenge is teamed up with Double Trouble

I hope to get back into the craft room tonight, so I’ll have something to share tomorrow!

Until then, have a great day!!

I’m back!! My favorite things- unicorn dreams

Hi guys!

I know it’s been almost 4 years since I blogged. I haven’t been creating a whole lot while I’ve been gone, but I have done some pretty cool stuff! 

In April 2016, right after I stopped blogging, I got married!! 

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since then! I did some markers locally with my cards, I’ve still got my Etsy store and my Facebook page (Jessidee Handmade if you want to find it) and I’ve changed jobs a couple of times. 
One of the BIGGEST changes happened in October 2018, when my husband and I became parents to a beautiful baby girl. You’ll just have to believe me she’s a stunner because we have made a decision not to share her face on social media or online. I do have a few cute pictures I CAN share with you though!! 

I’ll try to upload one every now and then, so you’re not overwhelmed with baby spam! Her name is Amelia (Amy for short) and she is a sassy little queen who makes everyone around her happy. 

Ok, now on to the card I have to share with you, now I’ve got you all caught up! 

I have a friends little one turning 3 next month, and thought now I’ve got a tidy craft area again, it’s time to create. 

This card is made using My Favorite Things - Unicorn Dream stamps, copics and patterned paper from Echo Park. I’ve used sequins, some cloud stickers and a die cut glitter 3 as embellishments. 

I have used inspiration from MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge
MFT Stamps Wednesday Sketch Challenge
And colour/moodboard inspiration from Create A Smile Blog

I’m so glad to be back in the craft room, and hope to get my blogging back up to date a little more! I hope to see you all soon!

Get Well Soon - MFT Card

Hello Hello!
I have a card to share today. 
I started with an older stamp set, I have had in my stash for a very long time. I stamped her on three different surfaces, my xpress it card (for colouring), on my backing card, and also on some patterned paper. I coloured her up, adding highlights to the umbrella, which has been paper pieced. I used patterned paper from Echo Park and Simple Stories. 
I printed a sentiment, on the pc, and layered it all up, with doodling all around my patterned papers. I added some sequins to finish off this card.

Scrapbooking - Hello!

Hi Hi!
I scrapbooked this week, I haven't done anything recently!
I used patterned papers from Kaisercraft and cardstock from Bazzill. I did a bit of inking on the patterned papers, with white ink, and a gold ink spray. I used the Silhouette to cut the main title, and a bunch of embellishments from D-Lish Scraps, including the doilies, flowers and sequins. 
Here is the inspiration board, from D-Lish scraps
I went with the sketch, the peach colours, the feathers and gold hints.

My card is made up of papers from Echo Park, Kaisercraft and Doodlebug. I die-cut a couple of circles, using the Bigshot, and then layered them together.

From the Heart - Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello, Hello
I have a couple of cards to share today, both featuring the same stamp, but different layouts/cards
Ok, so we'll start with this one. The stamp is from From the Heart digital stamps, and was coloured with my copics/spectrum noir markers. I used papers from My Minds Eye, and Doodle Bug and layered them all up. The sentiment for this one is My Favourite Things.
