Stampin Up Bloom with Hope meets Work of Art

Hello there All,   Isn't it HOT, ..  Ahhh I know we mustn't moan but Jeeesh it is sickly Hot for me! And that Thunder and lightening Thursday night that we wasn't expecting til Saturday, it my it rocked my house, and zapped my beautiful hanging go basket clean off the fence and smashed everything below it, oh how gutted I felt when I came down next morning, I heard a smash bang wallop when the lightening struck , whilst I was hiding under the duvet , .  Well it's a tad cooler today I am happy to say, ...

Today's showing is using the two Stampin Up stamp sets in the title,  the summer is here and I am in flower mode, ...  I am also loving the new card shape that is storming it's way into the card making world, oops pardon the pun there! tee hee!!

I went on you tube to get instructions, I just entered block cards in google but could only find 12x12 and wanted to do it in A4 so played about with measurements using the Stampin Up Grid paper pad (magnificent tool)  and I also wanted to do a diddy one, I love  diddy cards......

When making these designs, you just want to go with how big your squares are going to be, and make sure you have 7 scores one way and cut in the eighth and 2 the other way and cut in the 3rd and you shouldn't go wrong,...

I used Blendabilties to colour the flowers and leaves on the small one, Costal Cabana and Daffodil Delight, and the papers on the larger ones is from the Moonlight paper stack
I also used the flower punch from the new Itty bitty Accents

Enjoy, ..

Stampin Up Blendabilties with Blended Bloom

Hello there my friends, apologies for not being around and sharing my creations, it's been one hellva few months, We have had a new kitchen put in, a new lift for Paul, it has been chaos in one form or another, but all seems to be settling down now,   I have however been busy too on the creation front too..
And with the new catty arriving I thought I would share some bits with you and hope to inspire you, we are now selling alcohol pens Stampin UP call them Blendabilties ME ! Well I call them Blendibobs ,  tee hee, my funny names for things,   Well as a demo I can pre order a few, not a lot but a more than enough to be getting on with anyways,

I have to be honest when I go first got them I was ugh, to me they are nothing like (C's) and nothing like (P's) but a few pointers in how they work I was well and truly hooked!  COLOURING is back BIG time, yipppeeeee!

Well here is a sneak of what's to come in the making,

Whilst they were putting in the new lift, I could do nothing but sit and watch, we were all couped up in the living room, Stamford sure didn't like it at all, what could I do we couldn't move an inch, but I made sure I had my pens with me and some stamped images from the Stampin up Blended Bloom stamp and played, with different ways to use them, once done, well now how to use these wonderful vivid images, oh yes that wonderful new card blank on the scene, the block card, me I would have called it Baby's blocks, ..   I incorporated the Stampin Up Chalk Lines and the fabulous Hostess set Bloom with hope, Lurve this!
Well that's all for now Folks I hope you have enjoyed, see you real soon I have lots to share, or why don't you find my new Facebook page Simplyfairies....

Now onto a little creativity, I needed to make a Thank you card, and I saw a fab card on Helga Hopen a German SU Demos blog, I lived the simplicity of it, so I cased it and  then I found that I didn't have an envelope for the size which was 4 1/4 square so I got my envelope board out and grab some matching  papers and made one myself ,..

I used the flower from the new  Itty bitty accents punches and the petite flower punch, and the sentiment came from the matching stamp set for the itty bitty accents punches Something to say and I coloured my rhinestones with the blendibobs , aka Blendabilties .... The colours used are Costal Cabana, Crushed Curry, ...

Well bye til next time, ..  Enjoy your weekend, hope the rain don't stay too long in your neck of the woods
