You make me happy!

I have just had my stamping class and thought I would pop and share one of the cards we made. I came across the The Paper Players colour challenge for last week:


I missed the cut off to put in for the challenge, but thought it was a great colour combination to use so this is what I came up with:


Here is a close up of the sentiment and a close up of the pearls: 


Here is a snap shot of the arrows and stamped mosaic background:


The class I ran was using the stamp set 'Hello Lovely' which I got at Convention in November, I haven't really played with it but I did some searching on Pinterest and found a few ideas. This one came from Wendy Weixler's blog I just adapted it slightly:


Here are the supplies used:

Stamps: Hello Lovely
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Primrose Petals
Paper: Afternoon Picnic DSP, Pear Pizzazz C/S, Primrose Petals C/S, Very Vanilla C/S
Accessories: Pearl Rhinestones
Tools: Envelope Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Thanks for stopping by!

Banner Blast says Hi!

Hi all!
Today, I have been at my Stampin' Up! training day with other demonstrators, learning new techniques and getting inspiration from others. I then signed up to do an inspiration at our next quarterly meeting. I then had to leave early due to having Messy Church at the Church I attend, so a very busy day. But I had to pop in and show you the swap I did for the other demonstrators.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

I combined it with this weeks Colour Q challenge:


Here is what I created:



I changed the colours slightly to current Stampin' Up! Colours, so I used Rapberry Ripple for Bravo Burgundy and Real Red for Poppy Parade. I cut my Summer Starfruit base and added Whisper White card stock, I then cut some Raspberry Ripple card stock and used an up and coming Sale-a-Bration item (available from the end of the month in the UK), the decorative dots Embossing Folder. I then cut some Whisper White card stock and stamped basic grey with one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. I also used the Banner Blast stamp set from SAB with co-ordinating punch, I stamped them in each of the colours. I wanted the Hi sentiment to pop so used Real Red ink, the banner with the grey outline need some more colour to make it pop, so I used a blender pen with some Raspberry Ripple. I wanted the banners to look like they were part of bunting, so I used some gold sequin ribbon which is coming out at the end of the month too. 

All the demonstrators I gave them too really appreciated receiving them, I hope you like what I have created. 

The recipe:
Stamps: Banner Blast, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks: Basic Grey, Raspberry Ripple, Real Red, Summer Starfruit
Tools: Banner Punch
Accessories: Gold Sequin 

Happy Crafting,
