Swirly Bird

Although I've had the Swirly Bird set for a few weeks I hadn't used it at a class until this month.

This set is so versatile & there are so many cards on Pinterest to give you ideas of how to use it.

This is a card I designed for the class using not only the Swirly Bird stamps & dies but also the Thoughtful Banners Stamp set & matching punch.

Always love Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive together. Great colour combo.

I'll be showing some more examples of how you can use the Swirly Bird bundle over the next few days so do please pop back.

Thanks for dropping by & Happy Crafting!

Time To Party


Here is the last of the cards from my Shaker Card Class.
This was a card I saw on Pinterest & loved the way the Hello You Thinlets were used over the front of the acetate & then the birthday wording stamped in Stazon on the acetate itself.

This time I used the Layering Squares Framelits to create the window. More action with the Sprinkles Punch & Brights Sequins (those sequins certainly go a long way & there are still loads left!!) & the card is finished.

I'll confess to using retired papers on this & the first card but it was perfect for these Shaker Cards & my ladies don't mind using retired products. Most of them bought these papers so I always like to show plenty of ways to use products they've bought.

Over the next few days I'll show you the projects we made at my July class so please do come back & visit.

Thanks for popping by today & Happy Crafting!

Shaker Card Star

The second card from my Shaker Card class is this star shaker.
Again using the Sprinkles Punch, Confetti Celebrations stamp set and Brights Sequins but this time using the Star Framelits to create the shaker shape.

I wanted to show the ladies how the shaker section can be made using any shape framelit.

Thanks for popping by today and Happy Crafting.

See through Shaker Card

My product based class for June was a Shaker Card class and included the very versatile Confetti Celebrations stamp set. Over the next few days I'll share the 3 cards we made.

The first one I'm sharing is a see through shaker card and I found the instructions here. They are super easy to follow.
Also included in the class was the Sprinkles Punch which I've used together with the Brights Sequin Assortment to create the shaker part.

New to this year's catalogue is the fab Foam Adhesive Strips which makes shaker cards super easy to make. It's slightly deeper than normal foam tape/pads to give the confetti more room to shakey shakey!

Thanks for popping by today & Happy Crafting.

Jems July Blog Hop - What Does The Fox Say?

This month the theme of our blog hop is animals & we really are spoilt for choice with the new stamp sets in the Annual Catalogue.

 I decided to use the ever so cute Fox Builder Punch to make this 'Foxy Lady'. 
Don't you just love her?
I've punch the pieces from a piece of Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper & Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Card. Doesn't she look stunning!

I've also used 2 more of my favourites from the new catalogue the Labeler Alphabet, which is fab for stamping any sentiment you want & Marquee Messages which has this fab arrow which I've dressed up with loads of bling.

I don't think I could have got much more sparkle & bling on this card if I'd tried! 
To make her little legs stand out I embossed them twice using White Embossing powder.

Thanks for joining us on our hop today. Next in line is the ouber talented Sarah-Jane & you can jump to her blog by clicking on the link below.

Happy Crafting!
