Birthday Card using Epic Day DSP and Clay Roses

Hope you like this birthday card, using the Epic Day DSP left overs. The card is made in crumb cake.

I have had great fun making my own coloured clay roses.. New in the catalogue.. Watch this space for detail of how to make and ink them.

I used the stitching tool and the flower die, glitter brads and glue dots to stick down the clay roses, the leaf was punched out from basic grey using the owl punch, and the ink was sprayed across the top corner using the matching pen.

Happy birthday stamped cut out with matching new punch

Finished with some twine and a mini safety pin with pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!

Epic Day This & That Box Frame

I had some DSP paper and stickers from my This and That Epic Day bundle and made a quick box frame as a graduation present for my niece... Easy to do when using stickers and squares cut at 4x4cm with a whisper white frame.

Loved the wording "just a theory"

Great life messages... In a subtle way
I stamped the words LOVE, made bunting...

Even encouraged her to go around the world. Here There Everywhere...
I did ink around the edges in crumb cake just to give some definition.
I added only a few trinkets, some twine, rhinestones and some of the new clips.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Word Vintage Box Frame

I have been very busy making things for a local craft fair, my first trip outside to the local library this morning, had a great morning thanks to my friend Sue, carer Laura who got me up early and to support worker Karen who has helped me craft everyday and got me going! I have now been invited to another event in the next village :)

Anyway this is a box frame using the word LOVE but you could do this with any word you like in any colours to decorate your home.

My camera gives it a vintage feel!!! But I have used the neutral colour family, added lots of extras some are retired, but you can make it your own using different embelishments.

Lighter picture, using the DSP first edition and speciality paper as a background.

Some of the detail, using the buttons, twine, bird punch leaves, glitter brads and butterfly emboslets, vintage brads,

Ageing some detail with the stitching edges, inked in crumb cake. A small heart punch with pearls, the Aviary suite stamped bird cage. New butterfly punch and stamp. New Embossing folder and large brads from the new summer catalogue. The letters were stamped using Early Expresso with the broadsheet alphabet.

Will up date with other things made tomorrow. If you would like to make one join me .....check out the classes for the next few months.

Thanks for stopping by

Special Friend Card

Hello, this weeks card a bit special for a friend, I made an A5 size so quite big with a few folds, and panels in DSP.

Check out the lovely flowers and the way the DSP paper gives great edges this was carefully cut to the flags so they were on the outside edge before I then used the scalloped edge border down the side.

I used the friend to friend stamp from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. Cut using the Bitty Banner Framelets, inked in the new Raspberry Ripple Colour.

Hope you love it this as is the design for my mothers day cards I will post later.

Sweet Baby, Simply Sent Kit

Good Afternoon,

Still looking at my simply sent kit so this is my next card........

Quick and simple but that extra touch with a few other products. I covered the hello with the grey sticky strip and ribbon, then turned on the side.
I thought for a boy or girl this would be a lovely card, I stamped the envelope with the sentiment "Miracles Happen" free stamp set with the SAB offer.

Hope you like it

Happy Hello, Simply Sent from Sale-a-Bration.

Hi Everyone,

It's been such a busy week, I have been learning to drive an adapted hand controlled car, very exciting but it's also been very tiring hence you have not had a card for a while.

So I decided I would use the pre cut card kit from the SAB offer when I spent £45 or more, this is what I made .....

Just needed to tweak it a bit could not really keep it so simple. What do you think?

I sprayed the heart and flower with vanilla shimmer mist. Not sure if you can tell, but it gives a really nice pearl finish to them.

Hope you like it!

See you soon with another card.

Happy Valentines Day <3

My last couple of cards for you to see from our class last week.

DSP Amore from the new catalogue, new cutting and stamp bundle cut on Real Red, also Pool Party and Very Vanilla card stock.
Stamp set is also Free with a £45 spend during SAB is Itty Bitty Banners but this can also be bought from the main catalogue it was stamped in Basic Grey.

These variations on a theme were done with simple matting and layering, embossing using the Sale A Bration free folder with a £45 spend. Looks good with some glimmer card which you can also get FREE when you host a party with sales over £300, you can change up the sentiment for different occasions.

This was also quick and easy, using the perfect postage stamped heart, punched out squares inked in matching colours. I used the Simply Scored board to make the grid lines to help keep the squares in line. The card was based on the colours from the SAB buttons and ribbon collection Maddison Gardens, using Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango, with the additional punched heart, rhinestone and love stamp. What do you think?
I will be back to tell you about my night out and let you know if the valentine favours were liked.
Have a lovely day

Valentine favours quick and easy!

Hi guys, Just a quick post to show you what I have been making today for my night out with a group of girls tomorrow called our "Anti Valentine" night out, we are all alone going out for a meal to celebrate. So we decided to make it fun and bring a card or something valentine related to give to someone else. So I took the opportunity to make some favours using some of the Be of Good Cheer DSP or other Cherry Cobbler Coloured Paper.

What do you think? I hope the girls like them. Inside is a luxury chocolate. We even named them to make the place setting...we could not resist. Those of you who know me from the Stampin Up Paris trip, will remember my friend Karen, well she has been crafting all morning and loved it! I will get her hooked yet!!

Back later with my last two valentine cards...thanks for stopping by...

Valentine Card

Hope you all enjoyed the Blog Hop at the weekend...thank you for your lovely comments.
Sorry for the late post today but I have been for driving lessons in Leeds, VERY exciting....learning to drive again but only using my hands due to my MS......So watch out if all goes well I might be back on the roads very soon.
I did have to laugh this morning when I asked my carer to get some suitable shoes to drive in... SMILE! As my legs have not worked for 4 years she pointed out that shoes were not relevant....The instructor thought it was funny, but I did tell him every girl wants nice shoes to look good anyway!
Well thats enough about my day .... you want to see the cards we made at the crafting class on Saturday. I made it in Early Expresso and Pool Party to start with, but my niece changed it to Real Red, they both work really well, what do you think?

I apologies for the picture quality please click on the photo to get a better view... Thanks

DSP was from the Xmas Candlelight collection, but any coordinating DSP would be lovely. The Pool Party coloured button and ribbon is from the Bloomin Marvelous SAB collection FREE with every £45 Spend. Call me if you want to place an order. 01904 492366.

The stamp set is You are Loved, the edges were inked using the daubers and sprayed using the coordinating pens with the Colour Spritzer Tool.
We had great fun learning how to use this to get fab effects really easy but effective technique.

This was edged more heavily with the ink to ensure it was deep in colour.
You can spray in different ways to make the ink more concentrated in one area, it's great fun and gives a good effect. Have a go you will love it.

To order this fab tool cat no (107066) cost £10.95 please email or call me follow the details above.

We added some Very Vanilla card so there was somewhere to write your message. Small heart punched to add that extra touch...<3

The Ribbon is the Stitched Grosgrain in Early Expresso tied in a Sweetie Bow and the coordinating button from the Neutrals collection with Twine to make a bow.
Hope you like it!
