Wild About Flowers

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I'm not 100% happy with todays card and I think that it is because it is too CAS:

I used the beautiful WILD ABOUT FLOWERS stamp set and then covered it with CRYSTAL EFFECTS. I was hoping that when it was dry I could bend it to make it crack but it wouldn't!!  It would have probably been best if I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder so I'll try that next time!
The sentiment is from ANOTHER THANK YOU and I used the following punches LARGE OVAL, SCALLOPED OVAL and 2 1/2 INCH CIRCLE

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Stampin' Up! Work Of Art

Good morning all and welcome to my 'Macho Monday' post. Today I have made a card using the WORK OF ART stamp set:

I actually CASED this card:
 which is in the Stampin' Up! Catalogue but as you can see I changed it slightly.

 The WORK OF ART stamp set is in this weeks 'WEEKLY DEALS' and is only £15.00 until tomorrow evening.
The other stamp set that I used to get the splatters is from the PERPETUAL BIRTHDAY CALENDAR set. My colour choice is TANGELO TWIST and I also used the BANNER PUNCH for the sentiment.

Well I have the joys of house work to contend with now, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Build a Birthday

Good morning from a very wet Devon :-(
For todays card I used the new BUILD A BIRTHDAY stamp set:

I stamped the images twice and layered them up to give some dimension and used DAZZLING DETAILS and CRYSTAL EFFECTS on the candle.
The question is: have I mastered the 'Clean and Simple' look yet?!!
Well if not I will keep trying!
Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Sprinkles on Top

Good morning and welcome to my 'Feminine Friday' post. Although when I finished my card I wasn't quite sure if it looked very 'Feminine' !!
What do you think:

I used SPRINKLES ON TOP stamp set for my doughnuts (although they look a lot like fruit Polo's!!) and punched them out with the 3/4" CIRCLE PUNCH. The DSP is CHERRY ON TOP and the sentiment is punched with the SCALLOPED OVAL PUNCH and LARGE OVAL PUNCH. My doughnuts/Polo's are topped with DAZZLING DETAILS and CRYSTAL EFFECTS.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

Good afternoon all.
I'm back with my entry for the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE 'STENCILLING':

I used the STARS MASK and a SPONGE DAUBER to apply POOL PARTY INK. Then a gorgeous new set called SWEET LI'L ONE to stamp the sentiment and punched with the MEDIUM STAR PUNCH. I layered this with the STARS FRAMELITS and finished off with some loops of METALLIC SILVER THREAD.
 I thought about adding some bling but as it is for the Less Is More challenge I decided to step away from the card!!!
It would be great if you could join me tomorrow for my 'Macho Monday' card and I hope you have a fab day!


Good morning all.
Here is another card from the new Stampin' Up! catalogue:
It uses the fabulous GUY GREETINGS STAMP SET:
As you can see there are so many images and sentiments in this set so you can use it for lots of occasions like birthdays:

I hope you have a fabulous day!
