Do Something Creative Every Day!

Do Something Creative Every Day!



Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #29 Sketch Challenge!



Crafting Forever card, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Challenge #029


This time for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge we have a sketch!


Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #029

I love having a sketch to work with, it's like the "bones" of the card is already there. You just have to fill it in. I hope that make sense. If you ever have one of those moments where you want to make a card, but don't know where to begin then a sketch can be really useful in moving forward.


Crafting Forever card, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Challenge #029


I thought the Crafting Forever stamp set was just perfect for an Inspire Create Challenge, so I picked out one of my favourite images and the "Do Something Creative Every Day" stamp. This card would be just perfect for a handwritten note to a crafty friend- I have lots of those!


Crafting Forever card, Stampin Up, Inspire Create Challenge #029


I stamped one of the pens inside by masking off the others and added some more of those ink splatters, it's so useful and comes from the Timeless Textures
 stamp set.

I really wanted a clean and simple card with just two colours. I used Rich Razzleberry ink and card and some Basic Black card with Black Memento ink to make the colour pop on the Whisper White.
Those pens are just shouting to be coloured in. Just like when you see a pristine colouring book just waiting. I love it! Am I the only one who feels like that about colouring ?!😂


Hop over to the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge here to see what the rest of the talented design team have come up with for this sketch challenge. Do play along too! It is very simple to link your entry and you never know, you might win!

Would You Like Some Inspiration? 


Stampin' Up Team Event Punch Swaps

So here are all the swaps I received in return in this group. Be prepared for a gallery of inspiration!!

Varied Vases swap card

I like clean and simple cards very much indeed. 


All of the products used in the swaps are by Stampin' Up!




This team event was so much fun, lots of my wider team attended and some of my own team too, around 88 of us!


 We made projects, took classes, had product spotlights, shared samples, had an epic raffle and took part in group swaps. 



We have so much fun at these team events, swapping is just a small (but fun part of it) there is so much more to being part of Stampin' Up! than stamping. If you think you'd like to be a part of it too, join my team here or do get in touch if you would like some information. I would love to have you!



I am of course, very grateful if you choose me to be your demonstrator and you shop with me. If you shop online, don't forget to use the hostess code if your order is between £20 - £150 for a small gift from me.

Friends Make The Season Shine - Half Term Crafting?

 Friends Make The Season Shine


Would you like a crafting project for the children over half term? Or maybe they want to use your craft supplies? This is the ideal project for everyone including them and they will end up with some lovely hand made cards ready for Christmas.




Making Christmas Bright Card, 4 x 4 card, Stampin up

I have a quick and simple card for you today.

Instead of stamping the bulbs, I have simple punched them out of card.

Making Christmas Bright stamp set and Build a bulb bundle


The caps are punched from a scrap of silver glimmer paper and put on the top of the bulbs with a little adhesive. The bulbs have dimensionals behind them and are "strung" along a little metallic gold twine.

Making Christmas Bright Card, 4 x 4 card, Stampin up

It is a little 4 x 4 card, made using Cherry cobbler and Whisper White card. I love the curly font saying "Friends Make The Seasons Shine"


Wouldn't these be perfect for the children to make and give to their school friends?!  Change the sentiment and you have a great Christmas card for family members too.


If you would like a little Christmas crafting for the children, this is perfect! Not too many supplies, so easy to achieve with a stamp and a punch and a great investment because it can be used year after year.

Coffee And Cards - Oh So Eclectic

Coffee and Cards. Oh Hello Friend!

Oh So Eclectic Stamps.



Coffee and Cards , Oh So Eclectic card


I have been using this gorgeous Oh So Eclectic Stamp set this week and it all started with the card I made for Coffee and Cards. Just a clean and simple card with just a little fussy cutting.

I can't believe it took me so long to get this stamp set. I can't put it down now! It has some lovely sentiments.

I knew the ladies would love something bright so I decided on a selection of pinks for the card base and matching inks.
