Go wild With Retiring Colours and One Big Meaning Stamp Set !! #StampinUp


Hello There,

What a title bet that caught your attention,  hee hee,    Today I wanted to share yet another Super Simple creation, .. Using the In Colours that are retiring very soon to make way for new In colours in our new up coming Annual Catalogue out in June,  The retiring Colours are very popular, so please don't linger because when they are gone, they ARE GONE!! Last year they went within hours of the retirement list going live,  lots of disappointed crafters, i am stocking up as I just love them...

Again a Note card creation, You can purchase them from my 24/7 Online shop, I would love to be your Demonstrator and pop a Thank you gift in the post you , so please do click the yes for contact so I can see your address, to send it to you,   Also don't forget to use the Hostess Code for April so I can send you a hostess gift at the beginning of May…

Right onto the card, using you guessed the Wild About you DSP Paper Pack, which will also be going  and a sentiment for the One Big Meaning Stamp Set from Stampin Up, using the Black & White side, with a pop of Colour makes it quite striking, don't you think?  Flowers punched form the Itty Bitty Accents punch set…..

Stampin Creative March Blog Hop - Lovely Layout Theme, #StampinUp #WatercolorWords


Hello There,

It's that time again, when the Stampin Creative Team Blog Hop is on the go,  and this weeks them is a Sketch Layout,   you may have arrived HERE via,  Emma Goddard with her fabulous creations,

Well Sketches are open to all sorts of interpretations, and I for one love to see how others interpret a sketch differently to me,. and today is no different, this sketch was designed by our very own Queen Pip, and what a fabbie sketch it is too, …

Being totally full of a head cold again, I needed to keep it simple as my brain is not up for anything other than simple I am afraid, and I kinda cased my last card too,
 I have used the same colours as the last post, Basic Black and Bermuda Bay purely due to them being on the table, and using scraps which are perfect for the Stampin Up Note Cards…  The DSP this time though is from the Annual catty called Everyday Chic, the sentiment is from the  Stampin UP Stamp Set called Watercolour Words.

Don't forgot to pop over to  HERE to see Lesley Lendon and her equally fabulous Creations…

#Picture Perfect Doodling Training Swaps, #Stampin' Up!

Hello There,

Yesterday  I went to my Upline's Team Training, and as always at a Stampin Up! Event we swap creations , Mine was a card, and I had to make 27 of them.

I wanted to use the Beautiful often overlooked Picture Perfect Stamp Set,   This is a seriously fab Stamp Set, That can be used to give both a traditional and Modern twist look, …

 Last week I went to meet up with two fab friends I met through Stampin up, and we did a periscope video on making a card using this set, and Elaine aka Papercraft Button went home and made a few more designs and made them look contemporary with doodling on them , I thought they looked fab.

 So used this technique on my card, I wanted to make it clean looking with a pop of colour so used the 6x6 DSP pad called Go Wild, and chose to work with the Black n White design, and popped it with Costal Cabana…

The inks use on the 3 step flower was, 1, Soft Sky, 2, Pool Party, 3, Costal Cabana, the leaves i did just 2 steps and those colours were 1, Pear Pizzaz, 2, Cucumber Crush.

The sentiment was from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set….

Always time for Tea with A Nice Cuppa Stamp Set, Stampin Up

Hello There,

Today I share Cards and matching Gifts for my two Pals Caroline Hallett aka Crafty Hallett and Elaine Jackson aka Papercraft Button,..

We meet up regular for Coffee, Chat and Crafting at StarBucks in Essex and we exchange Gifties, and my Gifties were Cups that I picked up on my mooching round the shops rounds, I loved these cups and and wanted to make my own Gift Wrap and a Matching Card,… I cased the card from Pinterest and added my own twist on it….

Stampin Up's  A Nice Cuppa Stamp Bundle was just perfect, and I chose the same colours for the Card to compliment the cup…    Pool Party, Rose Red and Very Vanilla,   and to finish them off, I put a trinket on both Card and Cup from Stampin Up's Spring Catalogue called Have a Cuppa Embellishments……

Hope you liked, do pop back tomorrow, I have a fun periscope crafting video session with Crafty Hallett and Papercraft Button...
