Navy and Old Olive with the Needle and Thread Bundle

Man, I'm so far behind with this blogging malarky that this post published without me having time to even write it! My bad!
So, this is another Needle and Thread card we made at class, I love this pretty paper and of course the colours are just right up my street too, take a look...
There was a whole bunch of stamping and die cutting for this make accented with some of the outline die cuts and some Old Olive linen thread.
Love this stitched edge die that works with the Pretty Label Punch. And you can see much better the stitched floral die used for the background behind the flowers here too!
OK, so if you are seeing this for the first time hello and thank you and if you are just here to read the words to go with the pictures you've already seen then thank you for coming back! lol!

Inspire. Create Sale-a-Bration Celebration!

Hello and welcome to another challenge with Inspire. Create!
This fortnights challenge has a lot of ways to join in the fun as you can use any Sale-a-Bration product you have! To see the stunning makes from the rest of the DT you can head HERE.
I chose to use the super cute So Hoppy Together stamp set to make my card. I loved these little frogs as soon as I saw them! They were top of my list, want to see what I've made?...
 I also used the little stars from the super cute First Steps stamp set as well as the dual stitched rectangle framelits and the Twinkle punch too! A real "if you've got it, use it" card ;-)
I watercoloured this little frog image on this card so
TIP: I stamped him onto watercolour paper using my Stamparatus which was great as I could restamp as many times as I needed seeing as watercolour paper is not smooth!
Well, that's all from me for today, head over to the challenge blog HERE to see what the rest of the DT have made and do share your creations with us there too :-)
Thanks for looking today,

Frog, Chick and Sheep Punch Art using the Needle and Thread dies.

If you follow me on social media {FB/Insta/Twitter links at the end of post} you will have seen my punch art this week. Originally inspired by the little loop dies and stitched scallop shape die in the Needlepoint Elements dies (part of the needle and thread bundle). Each time I used them all I could see was little chick feet!
Just for fun I had a little Q&A and asked what my lovely followers thought I might have made and I was overwhelmed with great ideas and, not wanting to disappoint, I made the suggested Frog and Sheep as well as my original Chick idea. And I promised to do a little tutorial for each so that's what today's post is all about :-)
Here is the Chick punch art tutorial. I used Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie card for this chick.
TIP: If you don't have the stitched circle dies plain circle dies or even a circle punch would work equally well. 
 This Frog punch art tutorial is super simple and great fun too!
I used Garden Green, Black and White card for this little frog. I also have just realised the 3/8" circle is retired but you can use the cookie cutter builder punch instead .
 And last for today this cute Sheep punch art tutorial.
 Just add fun googly eyes (mine are retired by SU! at halloween from a few years back)
And all together again to finish today.
So, the smallest (big) boys football has been cancelled today due to the rubbish weather ruining the pitch :-( so we are staying in for the day doing some more of those "exciting" jobs in the house ;-)
Fingers crossed that maybe I might even squeeze a little crafting in later today too...
I hope you get a chance to make something today too and if you have a go at one of these punch art animals I'd love to see!! Feel free to share any and all of your papercraft creations on my crafting group on FB, HERE.
That's all from me for today, thanks so much for stopping by :-)
