High Tide

Good morning, the sun is shining brightly here today and I know Spring is just around the corner. Once the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, I can't wait to start spending more time outdoors and one of my favourite things to do is go to the beach, so I was excited to receive my High Tide stamp set this week and I decided to use it straight away to make my customer thank you cards for last month.

I stamped the lighthouse image in Real Red and Smokey Slate ink and used the base image upside down with Crumb Cake ink to give the idea of a shingle beach. The sentiment comes from the Helping Me Grow stamp set.

If you would like to purchase any of the items I've used for my card today, you can find them in my Online Shop. Here are the item numbers to get you started:
  • 131527 Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes
  • 143006 High Tide Stamp
  • 126949 Real Red Stampin' Pad
  • 126975 Crumb Cake Stampin' Pad
  • 140932 Basic Grey Stampin' Pad
  • 131179 Smokey Slate Stampin' Pad
  • 126978 Soft Suede Stampin Pad
Did you know there has been a second release of Sale-a-Bration Freebies? These products are in addition to the 12 items already available, although all products are only available while stocks last!
 
There are two stamp sets and the most stunning Glimmer paper which I think will be a big hit, I can't wait for mine to arrive!





You can choose a FREE item with every £45 spend, so spend £90 and choose two, spend £135 and choose three but if you spend over £150 you will also earn 20% Stampin' Rewards to spend on products of your choice.

Global Design Project

Good Morning, it's been a long week and I'm so glad the weekend is nearly here. I'm busy at the minute making cards and gifts for the girls various coaches, teachers and leaders. But I did still find time to take part in this week's Global Design Project where the theme was Adventure.
 
 
I struggled with what stamp set to choose for my card before my eyes settled on the Shooting Star stamp set which was sitting in my pile of new stamps that I hadn't yet managed to have a play with.
 
I used my Aquapainter to add some colour from the lid of my inkpad to some watercolour paper, then stamped the star and moon images with Crushed Curry Ink and cut them out with the matching dies.
 
I embossed some Night Of Navy Card with the Lucky Stars embossing folder and cut some Whisper White card with my favourite Stitched Shape Framelits.
 
After I assembled my card, I added a Wink of Stella glitter to my shooting star, moon and all the backround stars so the whole card shimmers and glitters in the light.
 
If you would like to purchase any of the items I've used for my card today, you can find them in my Online Shop. Here are the item numbers to get you started:
  • 140490 Thick White Card
  • 106577 Night of Navy Card

  • 142350 Shooting Star stamp and die bundle

Star of Light

Good Morning, gosh it's a bit nippy this morning isn't it? Today I'm sharing the project from our team meeting at the weekend.
It looks like a normal card from the outside but there's a little surprise inside.....
The card has a box of tea lights incorporated which makes it a card and gift all in one! The design is based on a design I saw on Pinterest by a lady called Marianne (can't find a second name)although I have resized and changed her dimensions for my card.
 
I decorated the card with the stunning Star of Light stamps and co-ordinating dies. To decorate the tea lights, I stamped one of the images from the set onto some white tissue paper and punched it out. I then used my heat tool to melt it into the surface of the tealight. 
I can see me recreating this project again and again with various stamps and dies, it would be lovely done with florals for a birthday or Mother's day.
 
 You can purchase any of the items I've used today in my Online Shop. I've included a list of items I've used below:
  • 106577 Night of Navy Card
  • 126970 Night of Navy Ink

A Cracking Christmas

Good Morning, I'm heading out to a craft class this morning where I'm not the tutor for once and I'm looking forward to just sitting back and spend time crafting with nothing to organise.
Before I go, I want to share my swaps from our Team Meeting at the weekend.
I used my Envelope Punch Board to make these mini crackers using the papers from the This Christmas paper stack. You only need a 6"x6" piece of paper to make each one which means you can make 4 from each sheet of patterned paper. I hope to have a tutorial ready later in the week.
 
The greeting on the crackers comes from the Tin of Tags stamp set which I have found myself using so many times this year, it's a great all rounder. It's also on sale until the end of November for £14.25 instead of the usual £19.

And of course I've used my Stitched Shape Framelits which make an appearance on nearly every project at the minute, they are so versatile and will hopefully be available again soon when new stocks arrive.

You can purchase any of the items I've used today in my Online shop, here's a list of what I've used to get you started.
  • 142180 Tin of Tags Stamp set
  • 141628 This Christmas Designer Series Paper
  • 133774 Envelope Punch Board
  • 145372 Stitched Shape Framelits
  • 143512 Hang Your Stocking Bundle
  • 126966 Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Pad
  • 141999 Bakers Twine Trio Pack
