Daring Cardmakers - Peek A Boo

Hello everyone.

Its Friday and time for another challenge from the team at the Daring Cardmakers.

I have been very busy these last couple of weeks as I started a new job as a home help here in France but just to fill in while people are taking their annual leave.   I haven't had a lot of time to visit blogs and leave comments but I hope to catch up at the weekend.

I must admit I was feeling very anxious about starting especially as my French isn't brilliant.

I am so glad that I can relax with a bit of crafting.

For this weeks challenge Nat is our lovely host and would like to see some sort opening element, surprise element or simply just an aperture on your cards.

I went with an aperture on my card this week and used the lovely new Snowflake Wishes Bundle from Stampin Up.

The set comes with a gorgeous die where you can create a beautiful aperture which is framed with snowflakes.

I also used the Winter Snow Embossing Folder to create the background and I added a few extra die cut snowflakes.

And of course I had to finish the card with a little bling so I used some very sparkly adhesive backed gems.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the design team.

Have a great weekend.

Pop Of Purple Poppies

Hello everyone.

I have a pretty card to share today using a lovely set of dies and stamps.

  I absolutely love the Peaceful Poppies bundle and today I have created a purple poppy with lots of white space.

If you click HERE you will see another style of card with lots of white space and a purple poppy.



I have used the gorgeous detailed die to create the background to break up the white space.

I have then added a couple of the smaller poppies to the centre with some greenery.  I also added a small sentiment from the matching stamp set.


I think this makes a very pretty and fresh looking card and I have mainly used die cuts.

Thanks for stopping and have a lovely day.

Treats To Celebrate 2 years as a demonstrator

Hello everyone.

Back in July I celebrated my 2nd year as a Stampin Up demonstrator.  

I am so happy that I joined not just for the discount but I have met some wonderful friends along the way.  Before COVID-19 I had a lovely group of ladies that would meet at my house for a morning of crafty fun.  As we were no longer able to meet up I kept the group up to date via Facebook and we all shared what we had been creating, which was amazing.

So I made these little treat pouches for the group as a thank you for supporting me on my Stampin Up Journey and throughout the lockdown period.


I found a fabulous tutorial over at  The Paper Pixie.  I found them a great size to fit two tea lights inside and as it was my 2nd anniversary, this was perfect.

I decided to use the very pretty flowers for every season DSP and used the new in colour cardstock to create the closure.  I also used the celebrate sunflowers stamp and die bundle to create the little embellishment on the front.


I love the design of this bag as they fold flat.  You could make a bunch of them and store them perfectly until you need to use one.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely day.
