Hello Friend

I thought I would use some 2016 In Colours today…I thought they might be feeling a little lonely.

I have used the Oh So Eclectic bundle to create today’s project.

Peekaboo Peach was used to add the tiny petals to the card base. 

I used the same stamp for a tone on tone effect on the Dapper Denim card stock, I then scored the card stock on the reverse to add interest.

The leaves were die cut from Emerald Envy card stock. The flowers were first die cut from Powder Pink, the overlay is cut from Flirty Flamingo.

Finally, I made a sentiment banner stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Happy Stampin’!

Pootlers Team Retreat, Day 2

Yes, these are Christmas cards! Yes, it is June! Us crafter’s have to start early.

So yesterday was brilliant!

The lovely Janice provided a make and take, with a focus on masking. My end results are pictured above.

Then we made a post-it note block and pen holder, courtesy of Sam Hammond, (pictures to follow).

Amanda showed us how we can use Memories and More products. This was something completely new to me and really enjoyed seeing the products in person. Watch this space for more on these products.

Thank you ladies for sparing time to create our projects, also to Heidi for her enormous effort to provide a “one sheet wonder”. I will be finishing this off at home and will share the results.

The whole weekend was truly amazing. I have met so many new people, been reunited with others, shared crafty hints and tips, and made some beautiful projects. 

Thanks also to my table mates; Laurie Jennings, Jill Chapman, Julie Addison and Tracy Walken.

This is why I love being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stampin’!

Spots

Good Morning!

I am spending this weekend at my first Team Retreat. I am so excited I think I might berry burst!

So just a quick share today and tomorrow I will show what me got up to.

Super simple this one. Choose your colour scheme and away you go.

Select 3 or 4 inks, then randomly stamp the circle from Wood Words. Start with the darkest colour, I also stamped off a few of them too.

The sentiment I chose is from Window Shopping…I wanted something quite bold. I stamped this in same darkest ink colour on the a strip of card to suit the height of the sentiment. The strip was cut to 4 inches long to fit the card front perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Thanks for stopping by.

Blue Triangles

Hi there, 

Just a quick share today using just 2 stamps!

I used Soft Sky ink the stamp out the triangles. This is a photo polymer stamp, so it was easy to line them up.

A sentiment from the same set was stamped in Crumb Cake ink and cut in to a small banner. This was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Super cute!

Beautiful Birthday

Hello again,

The watercolour pencils are out again. So easy to use and creates a great effect.

I have simply stamped the images in archival ink. Colour was added with the pencils then blended out with a blender pen. For the flowers I used Rich Razzleberry and Real Red. Bermuda Bay was used on the background and Daffodil Delight for the sentiment banner.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Thanks for stopping by.
