A New Sketch Challenge with Inspire. Create Challenges using the Needle and Thread Bundle

Hello and welcome to another post with Inspire. Create challenges!
This fortnight it's a sketch challenge (my favourite) and it's a great design that was super fun to use!
And this is the card I made, using the Needle and Thread bundle...
 I used the beautiful stitched die from the bundle on white card then added Highland Heather and Old Olive inks with a dauber to highlight the image.
 I finished with a sentiment on vellum and some more of the stitched elements from the die set, wrapped with some of that fabulous, new Old Olive Twine!
So, that's all from me for today, I hope you have enjoyed my card? But, don't forget the rest of the DT who have some fab-u-lous makes with this sketch so please do head over to the ICC blog  to be super inspired!
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back soon with a new card :-)

Buffalo Check with Signs Of Santa for a Non-Festive card!

Hello there,
Today I have a card which uses some Christmas stash for a non-Christmas card!
The background Buffalo Check stamp is on the carryover list so is still available but the Mrs Clause from Signs of Santa is retired now. Did you get this set? I love her sweet expression and think that in pink she looks just adorable and not at all festive, let's have a look...
 I do love this buffalo check stamp, I used it with Blushing Bride here, layered with a fine edge of black card.
 I coloured Mrs Clause with blends and as she has a holly sprig in her hair I added a punched flower to cover it which has the added bonus of adding a little dimension too!
I also think she'd look fabulous like this on tags for homemade jams etc..
 Finished with a chalkboard tag which was also a Christmas set and some sequins (of course) ;-)
So, that's all for today, I'll be back on Wednesday with a new challenge from Inspire. Create, so please do stop by for that!
Thanks for looking today :-)

Needle and Thread stamped card.

Hello there and happy Sunday to you!
I hope you've had a great day? We had football this morning which was a tad chilly - but not as cold as last week (I didn't think) but I thought I'd hop on and share an evening post with you today, for a change.
I have another card from my class this week and this card is a pretty, mostly stamped make in a Lovely Lipstick, Navy and Pear Pizazz colourway, let's see...
 This card seemed to go down well in class and my
TOP TIP: is to stamp the leaves first, then the flowers :-)
 Wrap with some silver thread, top with a sentient and add a few white enamel spots (retired) to finish this make.
So, that's today's card for you.
I have loads of other Needle and Thread cards to share with you over the next week so I hope you'll stop by again soon ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today,

Stampin' Up's Needle and Thread bundle

Hello there,
I have a cute card today using the Needle and Thread bundle which I will be using in class later this week. This means I have made loads of samples with this set and so I will be sharing all of them here over the coming days!
This card started life at On Stage but I didn't assemble it while I was there as I wanted to add a few extras and tweak it a little to create this card...
Some of the tiny changes I made were to cut the DSP in half, layer the pink card with a pop of Berry Burst and use those lovely swirl stamped images too.
And don't you adore that pin effect the background die creates on here?
 I have loved using this suite, so much so that I have to actually force myself to move on to some of the other lovely stamps in the Spring/Summer catalogue so I have some other projects to share with you here, lol!
I hope you have enjoyed todays make and I will be back with loads more makes over the next week or so! I do hope you'll pop back to see :-)
Thanks for looking today.

Floral Frames Card

Hello there!
Today I have a card using the very pretty wreath image stamp from the Floral Frames set which I coloured using my blends. This was a super quick card to colour and so fairly quick to make too, let's see...
 I do love this image and I wanted it to be the focus so just added some coordinating twine around the bottom.
  Layered onto calypso coral card to bring out the orange in the flowers too.
 And pop on a few sequins (obvs) to finish! Super simple stamping and colouring.
A perfect and pretty card, great if you're just starting with Blends and only have a few colours...
So, I have been back in my craft room making a few cards this past week, ready for my upcoming Needlepoint Nook class, which I have also photographed and they now need just a little editing before I can share them here. Very soon, I promise...
 But I now also have a large box of shiny new stash to get stuck into this week too. I'm enjoying getting back in the swing of things, craft wise, after the Christmas break, I just need a few more hours in every single day to fit everything in, lol!
OK, I'll be back super soon with another make but 'til then, happy crafting!
