Bright Garden in Blooms

Hi there,

I couldn't resist taking part in the Fab Friday's challenge, here is the colour inspiration: 


I really wanted to use the floral designer series paper in the new in colours & this challenge incorporated 2 of them so I had to use both!! I wanted to ink up some old stamp sets, as with a new catalogue it's so easy to get sucked into using new all the time. So here is what I created: 


I loved the colours & used the Daffodil Delight & Tangerine Tango to create the lovely big blooms & then I used Berry Burst for the small rose flower. I stamped it off a few times so that I just used the one colour for that flower - 3 steps for that stamp set. A close up of the card: 


I couldn't resist adding some new bling, so used the gold faceted gems for my pollen. A closer image of the stamped flowers:


I really loved making this card & my class attendees really enjoyed doing it too. Even if they did have slight issues with doing the bow in the black twine! They persisted though! 

Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping,

Birthday Daisy


Hi there, 

So I'm popping by with a clean & simple card, thanks to the great design team over at Freshly Made Sketches, they have a fab sketch this week which I wanted to take part in, here it is: 


The circle in this sketch really spoke to me & I knew straight away that I wanted to use the daisy delights stamp & co-ordinating punch. So here is what I created: 


I also used the daisy delightful daisy designer series paper which really compliments this wonderful suite. I couldn't resist using the new clear faceted gems for the pollen as well as adding some bling to the card. Here is a close up: 


I hope you have been inspired with this card & thanks for popping by. 

Happy Stampin',

Oh So Eclectic

Hey there,

Hope you are all well. In the UK we are enjoying some glorious weather. I hope the weather is good where ever you are.

So I thought I would drop by with a card I created for a RAK swap group that I was part of. It fits nicely with the challenge over at Fab Friday. So one of my team members was lucky to win the 'Oh So Eclectic' stamp & seeing as I was receiving all of the swaps before sending them on, I got to see what people had done. The daisy delight is definitely a popular set! So I decided to make this:




Here is the challenge picture from the Fab Friday page:


Here is a close up of all of the fantastic in colours:

Masculine

Hi there,

Hope you are all well & if you are in the U.K. Enjoying this glorious weather we are having. 
I'm taking part in the International blog hop ran by Kylie Bertucci. Head on over there once you finish taking a look at my project & if you like it vote & I could take part in another hop
With the top ten from this hop. 


So the theme this month is masculine & what with Father's Day just around the corner I thought I would ink the Nailed It stamp set. Do you ever get a stamp set & take forever to ink it? Well this was the case for me & I can't believer why I left it so long!!! I love it & so this is what I created:


I love how the set has co-ordinating dies & so had to use them!! I clustered the nails, screws & bolts onto a block & then inked in basic grey. I used the paper from playful palette & chopped it! #loveitchopit then just inked the sentiment & with a sponge inked the square with the sentiment on in delightful Dijon using circluar motions from the outside in. The ruler is an amazing die that makes the dents/marks of the ruler & then used that as a layer behind the sentiment. Here is a close up, hopefully you can see the indents in the ruler:


Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping,

Don't forget to head over to Kylie's blog to vote,

Retiring Stamp Set - Special Reason - PCC243

Good Morning,

So I was browsing some blogs yesterday & someone had entered previously in the Paper Craft Crew Card challenge & I was like 'Oh yeah' so I headed over & checked out what challenge they had & it was a lovely sketch as can be seen here:


I had a look at what the designers had done & I wasn't too sure of it at first, but then Tenia Nelson had turned it sideways & I really liked it that way. This is what I came up with to showcase the 'Special Reason' stamp set which is not returning to the new Stampin' Up! catalogue :(


I wanted to incorporate paper that was also retiring & so chopped it up #loveitchopit so I used the Moroccan paper, here is a close up:


The Stylish Stems dies are also going & I thought one of the flowers would be nice with the intricate die that outlines the stamped image, here is a closer image of that:


I hope you enjoyed this inspiration & remember to uses that paper you have!

Thanks for popping by & happy stampin',
