Blooming Flowers

I made this card to fit in with the ILWS challenge this month, it is a colour challenge to use So Saffron, Basic Grey, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. I had to have a play with this set as I only got it last week and I love it already, great for water colouring!
So I stamped the flower with black Staz On onto Confetti card stock (which is a bit thicker for water colouring) and the "Bloom" word in Basic Grey ink onto Vellum Card stock which I tore and attached with silver brads,

Background is stamped with 'En Francaise' onto So Saffron card with the same colour ink and look at the cute bumble bee, aww
and here is the arty angle

Well, I hope you like today's card
and thanks for stopping by today,

Trees in Teal

I hope you are all well today, I have a little card today totally inspired today by the paper I used on it, The paper is from the Sweet Pea stack, this is only available until the end of September, so if you haven't got it yet then you better hurry ;-)
Colours used are Taken with Teal, Basic Grey, Old Olive, Choc Chip and Summer Sun.

Trendy Trees stamp set used and this set is 20% off this month so it is a bargain at just £10.36! but only 'till the end of August, I also used it to make the background on the right hand side of this card.

I used the Cutter Kit to distress the edges and finished it off with my favourite Linen Thread.
Thanks for stopping by today,

More bits for Aunty Amber

Today I have a few matching bits I made to go with Aunty Ambers card from Monday,
I made a mini pizza box to hold a bracelet, using On a Pedestal again, a Stamp-a-ma-jig is an essential for this set :-) Colours are Pink Passion and Tempting Turquoise as before,
a candle wrapped in large cello bag and tied with silver cord and a matching coloured tag,
and together,
and finally I got a large glass jar from IKEA and filled it with mini bags of sweets from M&S and a few lollies, just a little selection to pick through ;-)

For the top of the jar I used an old sab set called yummy, perfect for this sort of thing don't you think?
and here I used Tiny Tags with the Jewellery Tag Punch on the clasp, 20% off this stamp set this month, yay!

Well that's it for today, I will be going to see MIL again today as she is in hospital at the moment,
We are all hoping for some news soon from the doctors, please think of us.
Bye for now, Hugs,

Aunty Amber's Birthday

I am sharing my sister Amber's card with you today, I know the title says Aunty Amber but that is what we all call her my friends and myself included! he he!
So I made her this card after seeing the idea on Blue Jellys blog, I loved that she turned the cake from On a Pedestal upside down to make this cute glass! thanks for the inspiration Victoria x
Colours used were Pink Passion and Tempting Turquoise and the paper is from Pink Flamingo,

The cherry was stamped using versamark to make the side panel and I added some yummy Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the 'fizz' and the top of the 'glass'
Inside picture with the sentiment also from On a Pedestal which fits perfectly in the 1+3/8 circle punch,

Arty Angle to finish today, 'Happy Birthday' is teamed with gorgeous sparkly gem brads,

Thanks for looking today,

Good Morning,
First of all I want to wish my sister a very Happy Birthday today!!! I will not show you the card I made for her as she won't get it 'till we go out for tea this evening and I don't want to spoil the surprise ;-)
So today I will share with you another card made using the Loads of Love set again, not forgetting there is 20% off this set this month, email me for more details sarah-janerae@sky.com
Onto today's card, I have paper pieced the truck again but this time I have used Bella Bleau papers and Kraft card, I love this look,

Button is from the Latte set, linen thread tied around the choc chip layer and the Cutter Kit was used to distress the edge of the main panel,
I also added the sentiment to the inside,

and here is the arty angle,

Well that's it for today, I hope you likey,

Blooming lovely flowers!

I hope you are enjoying the school holidays? no early morning dashing around!
So today I have a card made with the lovely Hydrangea in a pot from the set Blooming with Beauty, a great set for all you water colouring lovers out there!
Base card is made from Perfect Plum with Pale Plum layers, gonna miss the pale plum when it goes, but glad perfect plum is staying ;-)

Background stamp is En Francaise, sentiment was inked using markers with the image was stamped in Basic Grey, it is not as harsh as Black so perfect for this sort of image, which was coloured using a mix of the Aqua brush and blender pens using ink pads,
a little buzzy bee to decorate the inside,

and a dimensional shot for you to finish,
Super quick post today as I have a few bits to do today, enjoy your day whatever you are up to,

Loads of Love

I have a set which I haven't used in far too long to share with you today, it was one of the first few sets I bought from SU! and I had forgotten how cute it really is ;-) and don't forget there is 20% off this and many other 2 step sets for August only, please see top of blog for more details or email me with any questions or your order, addy is in side bar.
Anyway, here I have teamed it with Rich Razzleberry and the lovely Cottage Wall papers,

I paper pieced the truck and the hearts, I love doing this with this set! with a touch of piercing around the image,

I finished it by adding some crystal effects to the windows, wheels and some of the hearts.
We are having the steel put in across the back wall today, very exciting but also very dusty round here too!
Thanks for stopping by today I will be back tomorrow with a card using Blooming with Beauty,
Stampin' Hugs
