Coming Home to You

I love trying out new techniques and whilst I have done sponging before, I've never paired it up with masking at the same time. So I thought I would give it a shot! The moon on this card was masked prior to sponging the gorgeous shades of blue background, to give the effect of a… Continue reading Coming Home to You

Simple Sunday: Gnome for the Holidays

Welcome to my new Sunday series, affectionately known as Simple Sunday! The aim of this series is to showcase projects using minimal supplies, ideal for the beginner crafter or someone new to Stampin' Up! Each project is a white card base with a 3x3 panel decorated using a single stamp set or die set. This… Continue reading Simple Sunday: Gnome for the Holidays

Hooray for You

I was recently challenged to use the colour Pink more as it's not a colour I reach for that often, unless it's Magenta Madness. I took part in a team event that was based upon the Curvy Variety bundle and so used that as an opportunity to dip out of my comfort zone and used… Continue reading Hooray for You

Snowy Snowmen

It's starting to get chilly here in the UK with the first of the gritters heading out onto the roads where I live. In my house, we combat the cold with fluffy blankets, dressing gowns and fluffy socks (as well as the central heating!). But of course, this time of year is brilliant weather for… Continue reading Snowy Snowmen

Made with Love and Birdies

Last week, I took part in a team event with other demos in the wider team that I am part of. The event was based around the Curvy Variety bundle and this was one of the make and take projects that formed part of the event - it's so pretty! The leaves are coloured using… Continue reading Made with Love and Birdies

Happiest of Piggin’ Birthdays

How awesome is this giant sentiment in the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set? Whilst I love little sentiments that I can punch out and add to projects, I also love large sentiments which I can make a focal point on a card. The font is absolutely gorgeous! I wanted to feature it alongside a background… Continue reading Happiest of Piggin’ Birthdays

Merry Owlmas!

I love a cute stamp set, especially little characters that I can colour in with my blends - and aren't these little owls the cutest little family? I wanted to make the card simple, so that the owls were the main feature and the attention wasn't drawn away from them. So, I used three colours… Continue reading Merry Owlmas!

Halloween Magic

This year's Halloween paper is absolutely gorgeous and whilst Halloween is still almost two months away, I find myself using it again and again (you'll see it make an appearance in my Birthday Party Live Week). For this project, I wanted to showcase the gorgeous bats and the giant label you get as part of… Continue reading Halloween Magic

Wild Hedgehog

This stamp set was the first one from the Annual Catalogue to make it on my 'wish' list. I absolutely love hedgehogs and this one is so cute! I love the sketched nature of the stamp set and the free reign it allows me for art materials - the imagery would suit Watercolour Pencils, Stampin'… Continue reading Wild Hedgehog

Penguin Birthday

My son turned 11 last month - he's absolutely penguin mad, so his card every year is always penguin related in some way. The launch of the new Autumn / Winter was perfect timing for me to make his card this year, especially with the inclusion of the Freezin' Friends Bundle. The gorgeous penguin from… Continue reading Penguin Birthday
