Style Beautiful........

Over at ILWS some Stampin up demo's got together and did a catalogue inspired card swap, I did a straight case, which most of us did, I chose the card on page 63 using the Style beautiful stamp set, and this set really is Beautifully stylish so has been very aptly named... I did try to sew the thread down the side but my new Baby sewing machine just would not play ball, infact spat its dummy right out, so I gave up... I got such beautiful cards and a paper bird back am so glad that I joined in in this swap, they will go down a treat at my workshops I am sure!

I stamped the butterfly with one of the stamps in River Rock,....
Sorry about the rubbish photos, not sure whats happening there at the mo!





I used all Stampin up products.
The following were used:
Stamp set: Style Beautiful Clear mount
Card Stock: River Rock,Very Vanilla, Cujan Craze.
Ink Pads: River Rock, Versamark
Punches: Scallop Sqaure, Butterfly.
Accessories: Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls.

A real pretty card don't you think rather beautifully stylish! If you pardon the pun!

Can you handle this!



Wow how cold is it today, and snow frittering down, oh i can't handle anymore of that stuff thats for sure!

Did you enjoy the blog hop, wasn't it inspirational, all those fabulous projects! A big thank you to those who left comments they are very much appreciated...

Well I have another for you today, Over at the colour Throwdown challenge blog, they have a fab colour challenge this week, I dont have any Kiwi Kiss (so wished we had it here in the U.K) But have used the equally lovely Pear Pizzaz instead..

I have made two lots of the same design today, mainly as I forgot to add a touch of Early Expresso.. I made a gift box for my after eights, and this was using a technique originally used by a fellow Demo as convention for her swaps, I am not sure what her name so can't give credit directly, Sorry whoever you are... Anywas all you do is cut your cardstock to the Height size and wrap around the belly of item, and stick at the back. Then take some DS paper and cut to width and wrap from front top down to bottom, underneath back up and round the top and down a bit! Very easy, but not so easy to say me thinks...lol.. Hope I have not confused anyone!








All items I have used are Stampin up, The Butterfly prints set, the So Happy for you (Free when you spend £45 in one go) The following punches: Butterfly , 1 3/8 circle, scallop circle, scallop trim border. Marina mist DSP from the 12 x 12 mat pack,& Cardstock, The beautiful 1/8 ribbon in early Expresso and Marina Mist and those gorgeous Rhinestones....

Bye for now!

For you!

A little creation today, again using the Sweet Summer stamp set, It's the only one I have at the moment, being a demo I did have the chance to purchase a set of each, but having been given some crafting monies by my Very generous class ladies I fully intended to earn them for free, So I patiently waited (and that was hard believe me!) until the 1st to spend my gift and managed to earn the other three sets free!

And I can't wait for them to arrive! I am going to have a whale of a time!

Anyhoos on to my card, a samll 4 x 4 card for a very special friend of mine who had an op on new years eve, I just wanted her to know that I was thinking of her...

I used marker pens to colour, Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight, Saraha Sand. Basic phrases sentiment again, and Greenhouse Gala papers.... oh and of cousrfe that bling!

A Season of Snuffles and Thanks!

Well all is not well in the Fee Household both myself and Paul have been struck down with the snuffles and this rotten Flu thing! I made Two cards today and I am shattered beyond belief what is going on here!

We had the Flu jab just two days before Christmas so why on earth do we feel like this, so bad we were we even missed the Boxing footie match, and still not feeling up to scratch Paul's Sister took him for me yesterday and Poor Paul is worn out!

Am going slightly stir crazy what with being held ransom with the snow for so long and now this, couldnt go Crimbo shopping and now can't go sales shopping! Oh well more for me to spend on the Stampin up Sale-a-bration event!

Talking of which here are my two creations of the day, The larger card with the gorgeous satin ribbon was cased from a card by Andrea Walford but using the SAB set that Demos were given free at Convention Sweet Summer, Pam Morgan demo'd this set using the wax resist technique, and am hoping that I will get to have a go in the next couple of days if I can get out and pick up some cheapo crayons!













On the smaller card I used the crimper on the black cardstock, I used the Greenhouse Gala Papers and flat decoupaged all the flowers, and of course the lush bling that is Stampin ups Rhinestones. The sentiment is from the Basic phrases set.
Hope I have inspired you all.....

You can earn the Sweet Summer set free with just £45 spends on Stampin up products, order from me and you will recieve a £4.95 savings on Shipping!
