14 and Simply Sassy!


My daughter turned 14 last weekend.  So grown up! It's a bit scary really, well for Mum and Dad! 

I always like to do a special card for her birthday and decided to choose this rather Sassy lady to colour using my Copic Sketch pens. 

Isn't she fab?  I've teamed her with Stampin' Up! products.  A stamped panel using Flower Shop In Basic Grey, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.  I then added a sentiment tag using Number of Years and the corresponding framelits. This set is super for adding numbers to your cards.

We took my daughter and her friends to Blair Drummond Safari Park for her birthday.  It was a brilliant day out.  The girls had a ball.  My daughter had a schedule all worked out so all my husband and I needed to do was have the picnic ready for them coming back to the car and of course being taxi drivers. 

This weekend she is off on a Guiding camp.  Must be great being 14!!!

Pieces of Swallowtail


Swallowtail is such a super large stamp.  Loads of detail and I've found a great way to display it! 

I've used a Sahara Stone card base for my card.  I stamped Swallowtail in Rose Red on Whisper White and cut it into pieces, then mounted them onto Elegant Eggplant panels. I used Perfect Pennants stamped in Elegant Eggplant for the sentiment. 

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

From the Herd


"It's pasture birthday.......hope it was great!"

Sometimes birthdays slip our minds so use a sweet stamp  like this to bring a smile. 

It was such a joy to colour using my Copics.  

I made it into a tag using a Crumb Cake base with an Early Espresso mat. 

Don't they look?  I'm sure I'd be forgiven if I sent this card!

You Rock using Stampin' up!


You Rock!

Just saying cos you're here visiting me! 

My card today is for Less is More using white space that's not white!  

The card I've made started out differently in my head then evolved.  I'm very pleased with the end result but during the middle of the process was quite dubious.  Does that happen to you?

Here's the lowdown.

Start with a card base of Cherry Cobbler.   
Cut a panel of Crumb Cake the same size as the front.  Punch out 3 little stars from the corner using Itty Bitty Accents.
 Add freestyle paper pierced pattern around the edge.
 Distress the edge with my Paper Snips.  
Attach a panel of Cherry Cobbler the same size as Crumb Cake top panel.  
Use Star Framelits to cut a large star out of top panel.
Cut a smaller star for insert.  
Attach top panel with Dimensionals 
Use the punch to add a silver star to middle.  
Add Basic Rhinestones to the smaller stars.  
Stamp sentiment from Crazy About You with Night of Navy. 

I love using Cherry Cobbler. It's such a deep velvety red. Very lush and it goes very well with Crumb Cake. And no white used at all! 

Hope you like.

Polka Dot Bow Ties


How simple is this?  Bish Bash Bosh and one masculine card done in record time! 

I made these sweet little bow ties using the Bow Builder Punch.   The patterned papers are from a retired neutrals paper stack.  The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations and stamped in Basic Grey. The mat is Very Vanilla on a card base of Basic Black.

This is perfect for Less is More this week which has a recipe of polka dots. 

A little reminder that tomorrow is the last day of Sale-A-Bration so grab yours whilst they are still here! 

Look what my son made this evening.  Ninja gingerbread men!  How cool are these?  His sister helped with the icing.  Unfortunately I can't have any.  :(

Party Pants for Less is More


Party Pants is a new addition to the Sale-A-Bration stamps.  You may have noticed that there were some limited edition stamps in the leaflet, well this is one of the new sets only available until end of Sale-A-Bration.

If you like sentiments then this one could be for you. 

I've used it very simply here for the Less is More which is one layer week with the focus on the sentiment.  And for one layer the Whisper White Thick card stock is just fab.

Here's the run down -

I stamped the balloon and string in Wisteria Wonder.  Then stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant. It fits perfectly.  The tassle is stamped in Perfect Plum.  The confetti was stamped off twice in Rose Red before stamping onto the card. 

I then reached for my new favourite tool.  You have to get one of these!  My Wink of Stella Brush!  I got the clear so you can still see the colour underneath.  I added the glitter to the balloon, hassle and confetti. It's so easy to use and so precise. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
