New Series! Four Days of Cards using Boys Will Be Boys by Stampin' Up! Day One.

So, as the post title suggests I have four new cards to share with you over the next few days using the Stampin' Up! set Boys Will Be Boys.

 As you might remember it was on the weekly deals a few weeks ago and I just couldn't resist, us demonstrators are tempted by those deals too, you know ;-) Even not on the deals this is a great value set though, at just £16 in Clear Mount. And it's super versatile, as you'll see over the next few days!
Speaking of, HERE is the link to this weeks deals, just click Shop Now to see it all! As always there are some fab finds (including the envelope punch board this week) and they're now limited in stock so if there's something you need then please don't wait to order yours.

OK, so lets get this series started shall we? This first card is super simple and easy as I had the dreaded crafters block last week :-S  So, as I do when I get stuck, I started with a super simple, one layer card after sketching out a few designs (you can visit my Card Sketches board on Pinterest HERE) to get back in the groove. And well, I ended up with this mini series! So there may just be something in it ;-) 
Lets take a look at my first card using the parachute action man stamp, so cute...
 Sticking with the super simple idea I simply stamped this little guy straight onto thick white card (all links at the end of post) using Old Olive and washed over with an Aqua Painter to smudge the colour of the 'chutes!
 See here I scattered a few Perfect Accent around, see THIS POST for tips on using these Accents :-)
 I added some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine leaving the tails long which I kept in place with a few teeny, tiny drops of Crystal Effects.
 And a top view to finish today!
S, if you've lost your crafting mojo then please do give my tips a try and I hope you can grab it back quickly! And if you haven't then I just hope you like today's CAS card anyway ;-)
Thanks as always for stopping by today and I'll be back with day two tomorrow!

Two Minute Tuesday - My Tips for SU! Pearls, Rhinestones and Perfect Accents.

Today I have a little Two Minute Tuesday video to share with you. 
I have been using a lot of the gorgeous new Perfect Accents on my cards ever since they were added to the new catalogue. In fact I think they might be my favourite accessory ever! Obviously, I still love Rhinestones and Pearls too though ;-)
So, with that in mind I wanted to do a little video sharing a couple of tips I think might make using these items a little easier for you :-) 
Including storing and getting to your accents and removing all of them from their backing easily and without damage, please enjoy...
Well, I hope that's helped someone and thanks for stopping by today.
I have been on a bit of a card making roll this week so I have some cute new things to share with you this week plus Dad's birthday card from last week too so please do pop back and take a look!

Using Giggle Greetings by Stampin' Up! for a Man's Card.

Hello there,
Today's post is a card we made at class using Giggle Greetings. I hadn't used this  set in quite a while and isn't that a shame?. We made this card, which is perfect for those tricky fellas, in a neutral Crumb Cake, Hello Honey and Navy colourway, what do you think....
The image was stamped using staz on onto watercolour paper and then coloured in with blender pens and ink pads. Lastly we added a navy part circle to the bottom for contrast.
A simple strip of card and a knot of (retired) thick twine decorate the bottom of the card 
 This front panel and image circle is popped up on dimensionals. 
All supplies are listed at the end of this post :-)
 and one final picture to finish today
OK, that's all from me for today, I have had a very busy morning with still a few things to do this afternoon! Hopefully I might get a chance to make something soon though ;-)
Thanks, as ever, for looking today

Using Butterfly Framelits by Stampin' Up! for a Special Card :-)

So, as you know today is Tuesday today (all day, too!) but unfortunately I have been a little under the weather the last few days (nothing serious) but sadly I just haven't been well enough to make this weeks TMT video :-( I will try and make one later in the week, all being well, but I do have a pretty card to share with you today still :-)
This week was my very dear friends birthday and of course I wanted to make a special card for her and so I came up with this...
 I used a CAS colourway of Watermelon Wonder and White with DSP from the gorgeous Pretty Petals DSP stack (which has just gone on offer while stocks last or until 11pm on the 4th August!) the for the larger butterfly, silver thread and a velum butterfly on the top.
 It was quite a dimensional card this one even though it was simple design
 The sentiment and sequins are from the Watercolour Wishes kit, which was such a lovely kit to make - and I still have photos to share with you of my makes from this kit too! Soon, I promise :-)
Right, I'm off to my bed for an early-ish night!
Thanks for looking today,
