Love & Sympathy

I had a request for a sympathy card & turned to the Love & Sympathy set from Stampin' Up!

I've used my Stampin' Write markers to colour the flower & stem & then stamped three times each time the image gets lighter.

The background is the very versatile First Edition Specialty Designer Papers & I've done lots of inking around the paper & Top Note die with my sponge dauber & Soft Suede ink.

Less Is More - Sketch

It's been ages since I took part in the challenge at Less Is More but as it was such a lovely simple sketch it got my mojo going!
(after posting this I've 're- read this week's rules & think I've gone over the 1/3 limit!!)

Here is a sneak peek at something that is coming in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue & I just love it!! 

The papers are Sycamore Street, the sentiment is from Bloomin' Marvelous and the ribbon is from the Sycamore Street Ribbons & Buttons pack which are all FREE during sale-a-bration if you spend £45. The little safety pin is from the Trinkets set which is in the main catalogue.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Patterned Occasions

I'll admit that when I first saw the sale-a-bration stamp sets that this wasn't one of my favourites but after seeing lots of inspiration on Pinterest I couldn't wait for it to arrive.

The idea for the linked elephants came from a card on Pinterest & I've added the rest of the card.

I split the sentiments from the images on this stamp set so it will be very versatile.

The papers are the gorgeous Sycamore Street which are also FREE during sale-a-bration.I love the colours.

I've made a batch of these as thank yous for this months orders & it was very therapeutic cutting out the little elephants.

I {heart} Betsey's Blossoms

One of my closest friends has a birthday this week so I thought I would be organised & get her card made early.

As I still had the Betsey's Blossoms stamp set & Floral District papers I thought I'd have a go at making a Tri-Fold card. These cards are a lot easier to make than they look. 

I've used one of the sentiments from the Delightful Dozen stamp set & I've used my Stampin' Write markers to colour in the different sections.

I also made a 3D envelope to match using Crumb Cake cardstock with a little bit of stamping on the outside.

Only 1 more sleep until sale-a-bration!!

Betseys Blossoms Class

I had two classes last week on Saturday morning and Wednesday night.
We used the new Betseys Blossoms stamp set & inks from the Brights colour family & the projects were popular with all the ladies who came.

The corner bookmark was a breeze to make using the Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored Board.

The Floral District papers really compliment this stamp set.

Everyone made a matching card, decorated a gift bag & made a lovely corner bookmark.

If you would like details of my future classes please send me an email & I will add you to my mailing list.

Thank you for visiting.

Team Christmas Gifts

Apologies for being absent from Blogland for such a long time. I haven't been idle on the crafting front but sometimes something just has to give & this time it was my blog.

I thought I would start by showing you the gifts I made for Christmas for my team of demonstrators. I have a lovely group of ladies & just wanted to thank them for being part of my team during 2012. We had a little Christmas fuddle the week before Christmas & it was just nice to get together for a chat.

I made these cute little scissor holders which were made using the Petal Cone dye which easily cuts through material. I've embellished them using Stampin' Up! ribbon & buttons too.

I also put the brown paper that comes with Stampin' Up! parcels (reams & reams of it!!) to good use & stamped it using the Scentsational Seasons stamp set.

All finished off with a cute little tag.
