Hello and happy Sunday!  Here is my card for today:

For my card I started off with the sketch over at Sketch Saturday:


and followed the colour challenge at GLOBAL DESIGN PROJECT #041

I used the fabulous Stampin' Up! Sweet Cupcake Bundle:

The background papers are from FLORAL BOUTIQUE and I used my BOW BUILDER PUNCH.
I die cut some doilies for the cupcake and sponged some with Night of Navy ink.
Lastly I covered the topping in Crystal Effects (sadly no longer available :-( and added some pearls - this reminded me of those silver balls you used to put on Christmas cakes that broke your teeth when you bit into them!!!

It is pouring with rain here in Devon ... perfect crafting weather ;-)
Hope you have a fab weekend and thanks for visiting.




Hi there.
Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends:

This is the gorgeous stamp set:

When I saw this set in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue I just had to have it as it looks so much like my puppy Posy!

I started off with the sketch over at SKETCH SATURDAY and used the theme at the GLOBAL DESIGN PROJECT:

As I used Promarkers to colour my image I will also enter I LOVE PROMARKERS where the challenge is 'inspired by a song or film' - mine is 'Westlife you raise me up' (sorry corny I know!!).

I masked off some clouds and chalked the background but you cannot see this in the photo very well. My sentiment is from HOPEFUL THOUGHTS stamp set and I used Stampin' Up! Subtles and neutrals DSP.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!



Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge for Less Is More Challenge

Happy Saturday to you!

I used my 'In Colour' Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the sentiment (from Work Of Art stamp set ) then I masked it off and stamped various stamps from Gorgeous Grunge. I tried to get a sort of brush stroke effect on the sentiment and surrounding stamp as if it was painted with a paintbrush.

If you try to ink up your stamps with the markers don't forget to give it a good huff before you stamp to re moisten the ink! (my puppy gave me very strange looks when I did this!!!)

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fabulous weekend.




Hi there I'm back with another card:

For this card I used the new Stampin' Up! DETAILED FLORAL THINLITS DIES:

Here is the Stampin' Up! Youtube video on how to use them:

I started with the sketch at:

The sentiment (which I tried to make look like a wedding cake!) is from NUMBER OF YEARS STAMP SET and the banner die is from LARGE NUMBERS FRAMELITS.

I will also enter the FUSSY AND FANCY challenge where the theme is 'Anniversary or Wedding'and as I used some snippets of Smokey Slate and white card stock I will enter Pixie's Snippets Playground .

This card will come in very handy this month as hubby and I will be celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary!!  (as he doesn't read my blog I won't be ruining any surprises!!)

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you have a fabulous weekend.


Tuscan Vineyard

Hi There!
This is the first of two posts for today:

I then decided to add Crystal Effects:

When I saw that this weeks LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE is 'PURPLE' I started off with the sketch over at SKETCH SATURDAY and used the fabulous new Stampin' Up! 'Tuscan Vineyard' stamp set:

I coloured the grapes using my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen. Then I added some Crystal Effects to make them shine - not sure which version I prefer!

I will be back shortly with my next post - thanks for stopping by.
