These were all made by the ladies at Coffee and Cards this week

So pretty.

I passed on a tip I find useful when using the very large background stamps.
Take the ink pad to the stamp instead of the other way around, then lie the stamp on its back, and lay the card onto the stamp. using even pressure using a brayer or another acrylic block press down evenly.

Or, you can improvise a larger item as the ladies at Coffee and Cards did. They found a placement was perfect instead of a brayer!




I love these stamp sets together. I hope you do too.

Big Plans Planner !


I don't know about you but there is SO much going on in our house to keep track of especially at this time of the year. Our youngest is just about to break up from school for the summer and all those summer school events are in full swing. I finished my 2017 planner in June and was REALLY missing it. I loved using it last year, it kept everything in one place which is essential in a busy family of 5. 

Big Plan Planner Kit.Stampin Up. Planner

I have just got my new one and I am so happy that I did! I'm not a particularly girlie girl, neither do I want to spend hours decorating a planner when I could be getting on with the "to do" list inside, however this planner is so pretty as it comes. It comes with tons of stickers to put inside however, and they are both practical and pretty.

You can see my Big Plans Planner up close, here in my You Tube Video


I already know that I can't be without mine.

 You can also buy refills for it too so can continue using it for years!

If you would like to include photo's and memories in your planner, you can also get the Big Plans Memories and More Cards too! These fit in the Memories and More photo pocket pages and fit perfectly into your planner!



You can purchase your Planner here.

Dandelion Wishes - Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #022



Dandelion Wishes Card


 Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #022






Dandelion Wishes Get well Card, Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #022



It's time for another Inspire Create Stamping Challenge and this time we have a colour challenge!



Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #022


Aren't they a lovely combination? I love a colour challenge. I don't know if I would have put these colours together but now I have I love them ! Do pop over to the Inspire Create Stamping Challenges here to see what the rest of the talented Design Team have come up with and all the entries too. Do play along. Adding your link is easy, it's fun to take part and we'd love to have you!


I have been playing with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set a lot lately. I haven't been able to put it down. I thought it would be perfect for this colour challenge.



Dandelion Wishes, Water colour, Silver Embossing, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Stamping Colour Challenge


I wanted to give the impression of the Dandelion clocks blowing away against a summer sky.at sunset. The dandelions are embossed in silver to give a pretty contrast.


Dandelion Wishes, Water colour, Silver Embossing, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Stamping Colour Challenge



How I Made It

I wanted a watercolour wash background to give the impression of a summer sky. I used an Aqua Painter (this is a paint brush with a water filled chamber) to lay plenty of water down on a watercolour paper layer. I then picked up the colour from the Coastal Cabana Ink pad with the Aqua Painter and laid it down. I added the ink from the Powder Pink Ink Pad in the same way . I used less of the Powder Pink. My water colour paper is 9.5 cm x 13.8 cm.

The base of the card is in Shaded Spruce (14.8 cm x 10.5 cm)  and the next layer is Coastal Cabana (14.3 cm x 10 cm)



Dandelion Wishes, Water colour, Silver Embossing, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Stamping Colour Challenge


I have stamped the dandelion clocks in clear Versamark Embossing Ink and then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I have used the adhesive rhinestones for the centres of the dandelion clocks to add a little sparkle.

Dandelion Wishes, Water colour, Silver Embossing, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Stamping Colour Challenge


I have stamped the Sending Well Wishes Your Way onto Whisper White card using Coastal Cabana ink and stamped some of the little clocks in Powder Pink around. I wanted to created a label so I have used the oh so useful Everyday Label punch and raised it on a couple of Dimensionals. I have added some of the new Whisper White Bakers twine between the layers and tied a simple knot along the top.

I have added a Whisper White layer (14.3 cm x 10 cm) inside the card and stamped the dandelion both inside the card,

and on the envelope in Coastal Cabana ink. It's always nice to dress up the envelope a little.

Coffee and Cards - You're The Best!




Your'e The Best Card, Share what You Love paper, Label me Pretty






Coffee and Cards this week we used the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Papers with the Label Me Pretty stamp set and punch to make this You're The Best card.



Here are the products we used with clickable links to my online shop.



We matched the Designer Series Paper colours for our stamping. 



Your'e The Best Card, Share what You Love paper, Label me Pretty, Coffee and Cards



It was all about the punches today. We used the matching Pretty Label Punch and the 1 1/4 " circle punch to punch out the label. Using Dimensionals to raise the centre circle. I added the "Thank You" from Thoughtful Banners by punching out with the classic label punch. Great, versatile punches to have in your stash. I love how they coordinate too.

I took the pack of the Share What You Love papers and let the ladies pick their favourites, with the card bases made from the matching Share What You Love card stock pack - Each pack of DSP has a pack of card that matches the colours in the papers.  😀

 It doesn't really need a lot of dressing up to make a beautiful card.

Paper Shares!

Designer Series Paper Share!


I am very happy to be offering this paper share in July whilst we have a Buy 3 Get 1 Free paper sale on! 


This means I can pass the savings on to you!


The Designer Series Paper in the new Annual Stamping Up Catalogue are just beautiful and  are perfect for card making, scrap booking pages, tags, boxes, bags and all your paper craft projects. 




Have you ever looked at all the different patterned papers and wanted to try them out? Maybe there are so many to choose from you can't decide. Maybe you buy papers and can't bring yourself to cut into them or perhaps you always end up with a lot left over and now some more pretty papers have caught your eye? -We have all been there! 

I have a solution for you in the form of a paper share.





Here is how a paper share works...

Each pack of 12 x 12 papers when ordered in its original state has 12 sheets. Two each of 6 double sided designs.  I am offering a quarter share of each of the above 4 collections equalling the same amount of papers as one full pack of one collection. That includes one sheet of each design in 6 x12 inches . this means you will get to try out all the papers in all four packs but at a fraction of the cost as it is a share! The same principle applies to the 6 x 6 inch packs. You would receive one sheet of each design from all four packs - a quarter share of each. More simply put,  you receive some of all of the papers, but the same cost and quantity of paper as one whole pack. 

This is a brilliant way of trying all of the paper designs for a fraction of the cost and also reduces hoarding too! Win Win!

Once I have a minimum of four people wanting to partake in a paper share, and payment is received the order is placed. Once they have arrived with me I divide and repackage the papers and send them straight to you with a small additional postage charge. If you live locally and are able to collect there is no additional postage charge. 


I am very happy to be offering this paper share in July whilst we have a Buy 3 Get 1 Free paper sale on! 

This means I can pass the savings on to you!


Each pack of papers costs £10.25. By taking part in the paper share during July I can offer it to you at the reduced cost of £7.70 (plus £2 P&P to send to you)

I am very excited to be offering a paper share of these 4 collections from the range of Designer series papers!   This is Paper Share 1.


Tranquil Textures. DSP 12 x 12 
Twinkle Twinkle DSP 12 x 12
Under The Mistletoe 12 x 12
Garden Impressions 6 x 6 


I am offering a Paper Share of these 4 collections from the range too. This is Paper Share 2.


Petal Promenade 12 x 12
Animal Expedition 12 x 12
Tropical escape 6 x 6
Natures Poem 12 x 12



or in this clip here







If you would like to partake in my July Paper Share do let know.  There is no limit to the number of shares you can buy or if you would like full packs at normal price or  take advantage of Buy 3 Get One Free you can do that too!  You can contact me via my email here or just drop me a message. You can pay via Paypal, bank transfer or cash.

I package it up and get it out to you as soon as possible. Usually within a couple of days of me receiving the shipment from Stampin up.




We have another AMAZING offer this month too!
