Fun Flowers Thank You


I've had fun today playing with some of my Bigz Dies.  The Less is More challenge this week is asking us to use die cuts on our cards this week.  

I started with the an old favourite,Top Note.  I added it to a card blank of Naturals White.  Then imitated the perforations by hand drawing around the Top Note in Wild Wasabi.  My sentiment is from Perfectly Penned stamped in Wild Wasabi.  I made my large bloom using Fun Flowers and went with all the purples - Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Rich Razzleberry.  The brad in the middle was made using a Candy Dot with a Brad Base.  If you haven't noticed these before they are super.  You can have brads in any colour just when you need them.

Lots of new things happening.  Check out this promotion.  


You can become a demonstrator for the super low price of £50 (choose a starter kit to the value of £55).  This low price is available from now through June. You can also choose the traditional starter kit for £99 (product value of £130).  Give me a call or drop an e mail if you are interested in joining the Stampin' Up! family.

Thoughts and Prayers


It's never easy making a sympathy card which is why it's handy to have one in your box, ready for when you need it.

I woke up this morning with an idea in my head and I'm happy that it translated into this card.  I started with a Smoky Slate card base and stamped the blossoms in Versamark then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I added a panel of Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.  The blossom was stamped again in Smoky Slate.  I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes then added some flowers punched out using Itty Bitty Punches and Basic Pearls. 

Hope you have had a good weekend.  The weather has been kind to us and we even got some gardening done.  It was long overdue!  

However my happy dance this weekend was when I saw that I was one of the showcase winners at LIM for this card.  Thanks ladies I'm delighted.  


This week's theme is FLOWERS so I'd going to pop this card into this week's challenge.  Have a look at the entries over at Less is More they are a fab inspiration.

Butterfly Smiles



Another for Less is more 3 shades of the same colour.  This one has Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant.  I used the butterflies from Papillon Potpourri and the sentiment is from Petite Pairs.  I added a few Basic Rhinestones and some glimmery glitter to the butterflies.

Hopefully this photo shows the sparkle.


Have a sparkly day. x

Hey There Banner Blast


Good Morning.  

I should have made a blue card today as I'm feeling a little blue.  My little furry friend is at the vets for her spaying op :(



At least she isn't aware what's happening. 

So onto my card.  Not blue but neutrals for Margaret who is in the card swap group I am part of.  She is rather partial to neutrals so hope she likes this one!  Have a look at her blog she makes beautiful projects.   Our instructions for the card swap is to use banners. 

I've followed the sketch over at CASe this sketch for my card.  You can see it below.

I stamped Banner Blast in Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with the corresponding punch.  The star was repeatedly stamped without reinking.  The sentiment is from Just Sayin' and I used a Stampin' Write Marker to just colour the words.  The banners were attached with Dimensionals and decorated with Candy Dots.

I wasn't sure how this would turn out by using the sketch and including banners but I'm pleased with the result. 

As I've used 3 of the same colour I am going to add this into less is more.  

This has been a pleasant distraction from clock watching until it's time to pick up Jess and see how she is.  

Hope all is ok with you.  Thanks for your visit. x

Hello Flower Shop


April showers in May! 

On Sunday we were all soaked through after going out for a walk with Jess and had to turn back.  Then today after a long walk Jess and I got caught again in the rain and was soaked through.  By the time we reached the house the sun was back out again. 

Here are my flowers at my door that my daughter potted up for me.  


I've used this as my inspiration for my card today.  We are asked to choose either 3 different colours or 3 tones of the same colour over at Less is More this week.

I've gone for Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry.  I stamped my first flower from Flower Shop in Rich Razzleberry.  I masked it with a post it note and stamped again in the other colours.  I also masked the sides.  I used my Blender Pen to colour in any parts missed.  I stamped Hello from Four You in Pumpkin Pie.  I then corner rounded one corner of the Whisper White panel and attached to a Naturals White card base.  To add a little extra glimmer I attached the smallest Basic Rhinestones to the middle of the central flower. 


Now for some exciting Stampin' Up! news to share with you.

Sassy and Grungy Birthday


This is a completely different track for me.  I've gone all grungy for Addicted to CAS!! 

However it was easy with Gorgeous Grunge and I followed the colours over at ColourQ which has an interesting combination this week. 

Once I'd stamped onto my Whisper White panel I then tore the edges and basically srumpled it up.  I picked out the colours Pear Pizzazz for the base and Pumpkin Pie for the mat.  The sentiment from Sassy Salutations was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and I then added a star from Simply Stars in Calypso Coral to be a focal point.  I used my super sharp Paper Snips to cut it out and attached with Dimensionals.  I added one of my Boutique Details to the centre.  It's a perfect fit for the star. 

I'm thinking teenage girl for this one.  What do you think? 

That's it for me today.  Hope your day goes well.  x
