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.

Northern Trees

Hey, I thought I would pop in with some inspiration & a great technique that I've been meaning to try for sometime!! What I have created fitted in nicely with the challenge at Global Design Project here is the theme:

I eventually got round to doing this 'Northern Lights Technique' & quickly fell in love with it, even my class attendees enjoyed themselves & really want me to do it again! So I'm sharing this with you:

A little close up:

Thanks for popping over to my blog & I hope this has inspired you to attempt this technique! It is so simple & effective have a go yourself!!

Birthday Blooms

Hey There! I thought I would pop in with a  great colour challenge that the Global Design Project are running. I really love these colours that they put together for this challenge. Bermuda Bay being my fave colour!! So this is the colours that the design team picked:

I thought I would do something a little different & do use the Birthday Blooms stamp set by using the neutral as the stems rather than a green! I really like changing colours for something a little different, here is what I created: 

I then didn't have enough Early Espresso card stock when I was running my class so used the Tangelo Twist for the backing, here is how that came out: 

I just coloured them in with blender pens & for the stems & leaves I did dark for the big leaves on the bloom stamp & then went in lighter with the other leaves & stems. I wanted to show that contrast of stems & leaves. 

A little tip, I stamped the bloom image on a post it note twice as well as a single flower, which I then put over the stamped image to then stamp next to one another. 

Thanks for popping in to see what I created, see you soon,
