Smile and put your sunglasses on!

Only 2 places available in my next Stampers 6 Group starting April.  Get in touch now to put your name down.  I'd love to help you build your stash! 






This is the card I made for the Card Swap group I'm part of.  We were asked to use red orange and yellow to brighten the persons day.  I think I got bright correct!! 

I played about with a new technique for me - Bouncing Brayer.  I inked up my brayer with Daffodil Delight on one side and Pumpkin Pie on the other then tapped it around in a circle until I'd covered the area.  I then sponged some Real Red around the edges.  I used this lovely medallion from Happy Day, stamped in Basic Black, as a focal image and the sentiment smile just seemed perfect for such a bright card.  I finished it off with a coloured rhinestone brad and attached onto a mat of Basic Black which was then attached to a card base of Daffodil Delight. 

Happy Day is one of those stamp sets you may pass by in the catalogue but it has some lovely sentiments which make a pleasant change from the normal greetings.  Also they are perfect for scrapbooking pages. 

I took this technique to a workshop and the ladies had fun getting all inky creating their backgrounds.  I'll show you the cards we made another day. 

You might feel this looks too complicated for me but really it's not.  Have a go and see what you create.  However if you want a fast easy to make set of cards then Stampin' Up! has a new product for you. 


The kit is £17.95 and makes 20 cards.  Click on the title above to see the flyer in full.  This is a super set for someone just starting out in card making or to give as a gift. 

Have a good day and I hope this has made you smile!  xx
