A burst of colour

Hi All, 

So I wanted to take part in the global design project challenge this week, they have such a great colour combination that I couldn't resist inking those ink pads. So the here is the challenge: 


Don't you think these colours look great together? So here is what I created: 



Here is a close up, when I was inning the flowers I stamped off so that die cut flowers stood out. This stamp & die set are so great together, it is so versitile that they work great on their own too. 



Thanks for stopping by & happy stampin'

Hello Chick

I had my first event for the New Year on the weekend & was inspired by the great sketch over at Fab Friday. So here is the sketch:


I really wanted to showcase the 'Hey Chick' stamp set which is available during Sale-A-Bration as a free item for every £45 you spend you can get your hands on some free products & so I made one of the chicks the focal point:


I really like the way in which the embossing folder has become chicken wire just by applying some ink to the folder before putting cardstock & winding it through the bigshot. Here is a closer look at it: 


I hope you like what you see & thanks for visiting.

Happy stampin',

TGIF Challenges - Just for You

Good Morning, thanks for coming to visit my page I hope you enjoy what I have to share with you today. I was meaning to post my Onstage swap last week, but didn't get round to it in the end & when I saw the TGIF Challenges sketch it was perfect to take part in: 


Here is the lovely swap I created: 


I really wanted to use paper so that was the base of my project, so I used the Playful Palette's Designer Series Paper Stack (DSPS), I then just used the Watercolour Wings for the butterfly & the sentiment is from Work of Art. I just changed the colour of 'You' to match the card base of Emerald Envy or Peekaboo Peach. I really loved making this swap, so simple but really effective. 

I have to say that Kylie Bertucci inspired me & I just had to try it out myself & it has indeed got me in the mood for using up my DSP/S, as I'm sure you'll agree that you just love to stroke or smell them. 

I had a lovely time at Onstage Local in Telford, it was great to go with one of my team members for a little girlie weekend away, here is a pic of us: 


Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting.

World Card Making Day



Hi there,
It's World Card Making Day, so I thought I would take this opportunity to get stuck into a blog hop with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the world. It is also the start of the Stampin' Up! year, so I thought I would start it off well with some blogging. This is one of my goals for this year, to blog more frequently. Life has indeed been hectic. Anyway, back to what you've come to see a card created for World Card Making Day: 


Here is a close up shot:


I hope you enjoy my creations as well as others. 

Thanks,
