Spring Photo!


Hey There! 

Thought I'd pop in quickly to show you a swap I did recently. When Demonstrators get together at events, we swap with each sharing inspiration and techniques. 

I saw the colours for the Friday Mashup & wanted to take part, I also paired it with the Fab Friday challenge: 


Here is what I came up with:


I stamped my Secret Garden flowers in Wisteria Wonder & Calypso Coral I then coloured them in using a aqua painter I coloured the petals in. I used Wisteria Wonder & Daffodil Delight on the one I stamped in Calypso Coral. I then coloured the other flower in Calypso Coral I love the light & dark just by using the ink from the lid.  

I used Wild Wasabi card stock to cut out the leaves with the Secret Garden framelits & I used the On Film framelits in Pool Party to cut what looks like a Polaroid - I'm loving this framelits set. I then cut some Quatrefancy dsp for my banner & stamped a sentiment that says 'You make me Happy' cut out with the smallest Banner framelits. 

I then assembled it all on Smoky Slate card stock & I couldn't stop as it just didn't pop enough for me. So Gorgeous Grunge came out in Calypso Coral & Wisteria Wonder. 

Thanks for popping by!

Leaving to have a Baby Curtain Call

Recently a colleague at work left to have a baby, I created a lovely baby grow card which I had seen on Pinterest. I then saw Curtain Call Challenge and thought I would show you want I had made.

The inspiration from Curtain Call is as follows:


Here is what I came up with:



I used pistachio pudding designer paper stack and used some pool party card stock to accent the arms, legs and neck area. I then had a mental block as I was unsure what sort of sentiment to put on. I asked another colleague and they said just put Good Luck & Best Wishes. So I was like I don't have a stamp big enough...Ding (light bulb moment)!! I can use MDS (My Digital Studio) so that is what I did and created this fantastic looking bib. I printed it onto Naturals White, I was really impressed with the colours. Here is a picture of the card stood up: 


Thanks for stopping by, hopefully see you soon! I'm sorry I've been quiet recently.
