A little metal...

Hey all!
Have you got a weekend of fun planned for this bank holiday? I am working, sadly, but we are going to Southport for a few days on Monday, which I am very much looking forward to!

I would like to welcome yet another new follower, Deborah to my little blog. She is incredible at should check her cards out!

So today's card has been made for the new challenge over at Less Is's been a long time since I entered on a Saturday morning! The recipe this week is ...

So here is my offering...

I used Work Of Art for this male card (yay a male card!). I masked off the middle section before stamping the long stamp in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe, then scored across the panel.

The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday and stamped in Crumb Cake. I finished with a Gold Basic Metal Button along with some Linen Thread.

I'm off to work now...I hope you have a lovely weekend!

A notebook for Dad

Good morning!
Today I wanted to show you a notebook I have decorated to add to my Father's Day style gifts at the next craft fair I am doing...

I used the fabby Six Sided Sampler and matching punch, and stamped them in various shades of brown (not grey! ;) )

I cut out the word 'notes' using the Little Letters Thinlits...I lined them up on the card and used the Magnetic Bigshot Platform to keep them in place. 

Keiran is doing a sponsored 2 mile run today for a local charity...I reckon he'll manage it no problem!

Have a lovely Friday!

Kinda colourful!

Hello everyone and thank you for joining me today!
I have my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches to show you today, but before I do, let me show you the colours we are working with this week...

I did actually make a card with similar colours earlier this week, not realising they were so close to our challenge! Anyway, here is my DT card...

I have used Kinda Eclectic for my's one of my 'go to' set at the moment. It has everything, don't you think? Butterflies, lovely sentiment, leaves, the sun...

I finished the butterfly by adding a gem that I coloured with a Stampin' Write Marker and set it with some Crystal Effects.

We've had lots of gorgeous entries into last week's sketch challenge...I really think we're going to struggle to pick our favourites this time! We're looking forward to a similar high quality of entries this week!

A sunshiney get well wish.

Good evening!
I know I'm a bit late today, but I didn't get round to crafting last night, so I made today's card this afternoon, especially to enter into a couple of challenges....

 Less Is More, where the theme is 'Hello Sunshine', and Freshly Made Sketches....

Here's my sunny card...

I have used Kinda Eclectic again (getting my money's worth!) and stamped the 'sunburst' onto the shaped panel (from Chalk Talk Framelits), then lined it up and stamped onto my card too. I added some Crushed Curry Stitched Satin Ribbon across the panel and mounted it onto the new Delightful Dijon card blank. The shaped panel was popped up on Dimensionals.

I then added a pair of butterflies stamped in Rich Razzleberry onto Vellum, with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, also stamped on Vellum. The card is finished with some Candy Dots from the Brights collection. 

I have some TV to catch up on tonight, so I'll go now and catch up with you tomorrow with my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches.

Petals, flourishes and butterflies!

Good morning!
Before I show you today's card, I would like to welcome my newest follower, Anna! I hope you enjoy my little blog!

So today's card was actually made weeks ago, I just haven't blogged it yet!

I have used Bermuda Bay and Hello Honey on my card...2 colours I think go very well together! The flower is from Petal Potpourri and I punched it with the matching punch.

The swirl is from Flowering Flourishes and the butterfly from Butterfly Basics. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I coloured it using my Stampin' Write Markers.

If you would like to order any of the products I have used today, please use the link to my online shop over there on the right>>>

Over this week I hope to show you some of the fabulous swaps I got this weekend in much wonderful inspiration!

Bye for today...hope you have a good one!

Tip Top Taupe for a tip top day!

Hi everyone! 
I know this is a late post but I have been at the Stampin' Up! Regional Training event all day, and I realised as I set off this morning that I had forgotten to type up this post!

So, better late than never, and as promised yesterday, here is the final card from my In Colour 2015/2017 showcase...

I have used some of the lovely new Tip Top Taupe card stock and teamed it with some of the stunning new Neutrals Designer Paper...don't they go well together??

You can't really see it on this photo but the DSP has a slight sheen to it, which is just lush! 
I used Label Love and the matching punch for the sentiment with a little Baker's Twine looped behind it. 

This stamp set and punch are retiring this time around, so if you'd like to get your hands on them before they do, just click on the link to my online shop over there on the right >>>>>>

I had a brilliant day today, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones, and had a lovely journey down with fellow demo Em...oh and lots of swaps! 

I am now off to admire some of those swaps, soak up some inspiration, then enjoy my dinner, cooked by my wonderful Mike as I type this, and a glass (or 3!) of red wine!

Have a lovely evening all!

A little Kindness...

Good morning!
It's a gorgeous sunny day today, so I am going to share a gorgeous sunny card with you!

I have used another 2 brand new In Colours, and just one stamp set for this card. Kinda Eclectic is the stamp set and I used Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush along with Elegant Eggplant. 

The Cucumber Crush was 'stamped off' before I stamped it onto my card, just so I had a lighter shade of green. I finished with Basics Rhinestones. 

I really love this stamp's one of those that I can use almost all the stamps in the set on one card and still manage CAS!

I'm off to Stampin' Up! regional training in Telford tomorrow, and I'm very excited! I love getting together with fellow much crafting and fun!

Have a lovely day, and pop back here tomorrow to see the final new In Colour!
