Colour Throwdown Featured Stamper. #476 with Southern Parade Stamp Set.

Colour Throwdown Featured Stamper. #476 

Today I am honoured to be a Featured Stamper on the Colour Throwdown #476 Challenge HERE and this weeks colour challenge is Light blue, Kraft and white.

I have use the beautiful Southern Serenade Stamp Set from Stampin up!  I stamped the background stamp in Crumb Cake it's all lovely and lacy, reminds me of a pair of tights I used to wear in the 80's.





 I stamped the bunch of flowers  twice in Momento Black Ink, and coloured using Stampin Blends, Pool Party dark and light, for the petals, and the leaves and stalk in the Crumb Cake light pens,,  

I fussy cut both sets of flowers,  cut three to decoupage onto of the flat layer of flowerpot make them pop and wrapped lined thread around making a bow, like they were hand tied flowers, and a little piece of Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, and adhered the flowers to the card using dimensionals. 

I also stamped the small cluster of buds randomly, in Crumb cake, added some rhinestone, and Glitter epoxy shapes that I coloured in Pool Party Dark Stampin Blends, Stamped the sentiment in Black and then flicked Wink of Stella for added bling..



I hope I have done the talented team justice, to be honest I am quite taken with this card, and will be doing it in my class tomorrow as I am sure my ladies will love it as much as I do,,,

Where the Heart is........ Stampin' Up!

Freshly Made Sketches #319 - A Sketch by Rita

Today's card is for this weeks  Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #FMS319 HERE 
 and again I have use the Heart Happiness Stamp Set.  




It's one of those stamp sets I wasn't overly keen on at first, but it's kinda grabbed me this week I think it's the stripey pyjamas style Heart I love it..



Melon Mambo goes just perfectly with the Petal passion patterned paper, the sentiment is from the co ordination petal passion memories & More card pack.

After a splash of Wink of Stella, I still wasn't quite happy with the card, and then I picked up the Petals and more thinlits dies and the filigree die was just perfect. Add a few rhinestones and yes I am a happy bunny now...

Sending Lots of Love with Heart happiness Stamp Set.. Stampin up! #ctd475

Colour Throwdown #ctd475


Todays card is for the Colour Throwdown Blog Challenge #475 HERE. What fab colours to work with.


I am so so excited I won the challenge last week see this post and have been invited to be Guest Stamper next week, OH gosh how exciting!!  I am a little nervous,  OH who am I kidding I am loads nervous!!



Anyway on to today's card. I gave in and purchased the Brusho's oh my, I totally love these add a touch of Wink of Stella and you get a beautiful background.   I used Prussian Blue only on watercolour paper and then splatted Melon Mambo watered down ink after colouring the Rose.  I left that to dry whilst I stamped the Heart and Rose from the Heart of Happiness Stamp Set I received at Onstage in an all attendee prize patrol. I stamp this in Pool Party, and hand cut though the set co ordinates with the Lots of Love Box framelits die set. Mine hasn't arrived yet , so hand cut it was, I decided to stamp the Rose and sentiment in black to make them pop a little. The sentiment is from the Hanging Garden Stamp Set.


For added texture I layered up  Night of Navy Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequins underneath the heart, adhered this with dimensional , and added the Rose on dimensionals too. 

Finished off the card with some rhinestones and coloured some of the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes with the Stampin Blends. I layered up the mat to Night of Navy and Pool Party card. You can just about see the Wink of Stella sparkle in this photo.


I love how this card came out in the end, Very pretty....

The patterned paper on the side is from the Tutti Frutti Dsp.  I used the stitched framelits to cut out the sentiment I stamped from the Lots of Happy Card Kit, and then Stamped the flowers from the kit Stamp set and dots (from the Perennial Birthday's Stamp Set) in Crumb Cake.

Inspire.Create Picture Perfect Birthdays Fun!

Inspire. Create Challenge.

Just wanted to share a quick card I made last night for the Inspire Create Challenge Blog, HERE

They have a super sketch for the challenge at the moment.  And because I had the Picture Perfect Birthdays stamp set on my table, I just went with the flow.



The colours were dictated by the patterned papers I had at my finger tips too!

Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay and embellishments are Lemon Lime Twist. I stamped the dots at the bottom and the stars at the top of Soft Sky Card base with Soft Sky ink, then layered some beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, topping it off with White Bakers Twine.



I then layered up the patterned paper from Picture Perfect Party DSP with the Sentiment Stamped in Bermuda Bay so that it packed a punch on all the subtle colours.

Finished the whole card of with with Rhinestones, Silver mini sequin ribbon, White bakers Twine, and the beautiful adhesive backed Tutti Frutti Sequins,   (no more glue mess woohooo!)

The stamp set is just £15it has 18 photopolymer stamps the set amazing value and can be purchased in my shop along with all the other items on my card.

Picture Perfect Bird Banter Popping Box Birthday Card, Stampin' up! Sale-a-bration time...

Cute Bird Banter Popping Box Card.

Bird Banter what a fun cute Stamp set from the new Stampin up 2018 Spring Catalogue!


Today's card is a card I made for my dad, I did take a little video of him opening it, I think I got more excited than he did, though he was a little impressed with the creation as always, I do like to make my Dad a 3d card creation, and he keeps every one of them in a little display cabinet!!

I used the Picture Perfect patterned papers and took the colour way from this, and then as my Dad is forever feeding the birds, especially two Doves that frequent his Garden, I thought the Bird Banter stamp set was just perfect and fun too!

 This is a super fun card and I started to make mine a match book box for the cube to go into and pop out of , I kept the decoration of the match box simple letting what was inside be the wow factor. I decorated the outside box using the Picture Perfect Patterned Papers.


Now the instructions for this card I found on you tube, was a little confusing at first as you can't really see where they are cutting on the score lines but I got there in the end, I only made the one so it was all good in the end. Maybe next time I will make a template for myself to keep.

The Gold Celebrate is a die cut from the New Sale a bration freebie Die Set that has 3 dies in it that can be earned when you spend £90 in one order.


 I stamped the images in Momento Black ink and then coloured using our fabulous Blends. The box is constructed using an elastic band, and I got a load of these in one packet from Poundland.




The colour way was dictated by the patterned papers I used and are Soft Sky and Bermuda bay.


Here is a little action video I have managed to make fairly badly out of focus I admit, but new hard drive means no notes I added to a know how list I had but here it is anyway,,,

Season Like Christmas, Stampin Up!

Season Like Christmas, Stampin Up!

Hello There, 
Merry Christmas to you all,
We are now in the last throws of Christmas, plenty of chocolate and sweets in the house enough to keep us going until next Christmas!

Winter seems to be properly upon us,  I love Snow, the way it makes the trees Glisten, there's not been much around Dartford though I have to say, it's mainly been Rain, rain and more rain, Others it seems have had some,  So maybe it might be on it's way who knows.  

Today's Card I wanted to share is funnily enough all about the trees!!  The stamp set being Season of Christmas is a real bargain now it's been reduced in theYear end sale, to a whopping £11.25 how fab is that,  you can purchase it HERE it's a real must for your Christmas stash and real the tree is very versatile and not just for Christmas!!  I made a card and matching gift box full of fudge sweets...

I loved what my Fabulous Downline team member Emma Goddard made below, I loved how she placed the trees, so I cased them and the colours Garden Green and Early Expresso, I just added Gold Baubles and a different sentiment some twine and a scrap patterned paper for added interest...

There's nothing like matching gift boxes too, just changing the orientation to suit!



Here is another look, Two of the same design, just swapping out the sentiment again to suit the recipient!


I love this set , I hope you do too!

Well today is the last project of this months #onestampinset5ways series, and I have to say I think my favourite of them all, . 

Whilst I have been making cards during this series using mostly the sentiments of this stamp set , Today's project uses a Christmas Tree image from the stamp set and includes a box too, that contains some lushy After Eight Mints!!

The colourway's for this project is Old Olive and Very Vanilla with a splash of Gold....   I decided that this project didn't really need a sentiment it was pretty enough without one.


Both the stamp set and embossing folder are going to retire so be sure to be quick if you are wanting these items , coz when there gone they are GONE!

Do you like the One Stamp Set 5 ways series, I shall be doing this series monthly in the future so do pop by again to see what I have created for you all...
