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,

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',

Cool Treats

Hey there,

So I love the cool treats designer series paper (dsp), so to showcase it I created his card using just the dsp! The Paper Players have got a great challenge & I wanted to show you this card. Here is the challenge:


I hope you love the card I created:


The lollipops on this paper is gorgeous & I couldn't have it hidden behind a stamp set. So I just stamped a sentiment & voila! Here is a close up:
