Stampin' Up's Dotty Angles with Punched Flower Cascade

and welcome from a sunny, but breezy, South of England! It's beautiful here again today but much colder than Wednesday when we sat in the garden chillin' together in the warm sun! At least it's been nice for most of the school holidays though :-)
So, today's card uses another stamp set I haven't broken out in a while: Dotty Angles. I really like this  set for mens cards but I wanted to make something a bit different with it so I started by finding a colour combo I liked on Pinterest. I love to use sketches and/or colour combos to get those creative juices flowing ;-) This is a Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate combo ...
 I "cupped" my flowers using the Simply Scored Stylus and my Piercing Mat (please see THIS video)
I also added some vellum flowers and plenty of rhinestones too ;-)
 This sentiment is from Petit Pairs
 One last shot to finish today!
Well, for some unknown reason I can't get the products to load up so I'll add those later for you :-) but if you want to peruse the annual catalogue while you wait, please CLICK HERE.
**EDIT TO SAY: All fixed now, links at the end of the post as usual xx**
Thanks for looking today :-D

Using Chalk Lines and Yippee-Skippee by Stampin' Up!

We've been out today at the beach, unfortunately though, it was freezing!!! Now we're home it is lovely and sunny (and has been most of today apparently) but down by the sea it was all overcast and soooo windy and yet, we are only 15 minutes drive from the sea! It's funny how the weather can be so different such a short distance apart.
Anyway, todays cards is another from class this week and uses another set I haven't used enough yet, Chalk Lines (the hearts), teamed with Yippee-Skippee for the sentiment.
I made this card in a Mint (Coastal Cabana) and Navy colourway totally inspired by an outfit I saw on Pinterest! See...
 Yippee-Skippee has loads of lovely sentiments including this...
 I added texture with the stars embossing folder to the larger circle before running the silver encore ink pad around the edges 
 I kept this twine in a straight line by using the technique in THIS VIDEO
 and finished the card with a few sequins for a bit of sparkle
So, that's it from me for today.
Thanks so much for stopping by today :-)

Kinds Eclectic and Age Awareness by Stampin' Up! with lots of Heat Embossing!

Hi there,
 We are off out in a bit to have pudding for tea tonight, in town! I'll share some of the delights on my Instagram and Facebook pages later if you fancy a treat ;-)
So, before I go I wanted to share a card we made at class using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and some heat embossing..
 We stamped the leaves with versamark ink, heat embossed in white and then, using a sponge dauber, highlighted the leaves with crumb cake ink
 this sentiment is from Age Awareness
 These cute leaves are in the clearance rack right now for the bargain price of just £1.79 for 36 pieces! Here we dipped it in the Early Espresso ink pad and topped it with clear embossing powder so it dried quickly before tieing on the card with bakers twine. 
TOP TIP: If the little leaves don't stay where you want them add a glue dot or a dab of crystal effects to secure in place ;-)
 and one last picture today :-)
Well, I hope you liked today's card and I'll be back tomorrow with more. Don't forget to stop by and see our deserts later too ;-)
