Incredible Like you and Sunflowers

Hello Everyone.

My little boy returned to school today after been off for a week as he was a little bit poorly.  So not a lot of crafting time for Mummy as I was on cuddle duty. But I have now received my new stamping toy the Stamparatus from Stampin' Up!

So please watch out for lots of projects coming soon using it.  I have had a little play and I already love it.

For todays card I have used the Incredible Like You set and created a clean and simple card.
I used a piece of white card stock and stamped at an angle the decorative lines which comes in the set in Smoky Slate.

I then used the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and cut an oval.  I seem to reach for this die set time and time again.  Its a great one to have in your everyday craft stash.

I used the stamps set to create some pretty sunflowers but I just stamped them off to the side.

I added a stamped greeting which is also in Smoky slate and a few sequins.

I feel a card isn't finished without a little bling.

Don't forget Sale-A-Bration is also happening and for every £45 or 60 euros you spend you qualify for free items.  You can order from the annual catalogue and the new Spring/Summer.
 Check out all the details HERE.

Daring Cardmakers - Just Stamping.

Hello everyone.

Its my turn to host the challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.  

I thought we could have a challenge with just ink and stamps.

This means no die cuts, embellishments or designer papers.

This was a hard challenge for me as I do like to add extras to my cards especially a bit of bling.

To create my card I first masked off the centre using a small Post It note.

I then stamped around the edge using this very pretty stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Incredible Like You to create a wreath.

I then peeled off the Post It note and in the blank space I then stamped my greeting,

I also mat and layered the stamped piece onto a slightly large square of card to give it a bit of a frame.

I think it makes a very pretty card but I still think it needs a few sequins.  I do love my sparkle.

I hope you will stop by the Daring Cardmakers Blog and join in the fun.  Don't forget to check out what the Design Team have created.

Have a lovely weekend.

A Pretty Colour Combo

Hello Everyone.

If you were wondering where Mondays blog post was I didn't get chance as I have my little boy at home this week as he is poorly.

While he is all snuggled up on the sofa I thought I would write a quick post.

I have more pretties to share with you today.  I need to put this stamp set down but I can't stop playing with.  There are just so many possibilities.

Todays card is a pretty colour combo of So Saffron and Mint Macaron.

I love the Incredible Like You stamp set from Stampin' Up! as you just need some ink and the stamps and you can create some beautiful cards.

For this card I stamped some of the foliage straight onto the card.  I then stamped and fussy cut the flowers out and added them to card with foam squares to create a bit of dimension.

I then finished the card with the greeting stamped in Smoky Slate ink.

Pootlers Blog Hop - Spring/Summer


Hello everyone.

Its that time of year again.  The launch of the Spring/Summer catalogue from Stampin' Up!

With every launch of a new catalogue we have a team Pootles blog hop to showcase some of the fabulous new products.

For my card I used the very gorgeous Incredible Like You stamp set.

Its such a pretty set and makes such pretty cards.

I wanted to keep my card very simple.

I stamped the background stripes first then added a piece of white card stock and left a border either side.


Next I pencilled in where my sentiment oval was going to be.  This would be where the Stampartus would come in very handy but its on my wish list.

I stamped a wreath using lots of the stamps from the set.  I also added pops of colour using the Lovely Lipstick classic stamp pad.  Its such a pretty colour.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having fun hoping around all the lovely blogs.

Have fun.

Daring Cardmakers - Elemental Inspiration

Hello and welcome back to more fun challenges from the team at Daring Cardmakers.

We all hope you had a fabulous Christmas and a lovely start to the New Year.

To kick start the challenges for 2019 we have our elemental inspiration challenge.  Hopefully this challenge will re start your crafting mojo after the Christmas break with lots of lovely elements to choose from.

Remember to select 3 elements to create your card and have fun.

For my elements I picked the colours, woodgrain and the twine (shoe laces)

I went with a bit of a New Year theme but this could easily be sent for a birthday.  Also the colour option is great for masculine birthday something that I struggle with.

I have used a few of stamp sets from Stampin' Up.  I love how you can make them all work together.  I have used Broadway Birthday, Incredible Like You and Making Christmas Bright.

Please stop by the Daring Cardmakers Blog and join in the fun and also check out the lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.

Stitched Shape Gift Tag

Morning folks.

Just wanted to stop by and let you know about the up coming Pootlers Blog Hop which will be happening on 12th January.  

As a team we will be sharing lots of lovely projects with you from the new Spring/Summer catalogue from Stampin' Up!  

I hope to see you there.

For todays project I decided to create a little gift tag which you can easily make with the Incredible Like You Stamp Set.


First I die cut a circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies.  I then stamped in So Saffron the flowers and I added a bit of foliage using Pear Pizzazz.

I stamped the greeting across the front in Smoky Slate over the top of my image.

To make the tag I folded a piece of card stock and used  the larger circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set.  Place the die just over the edge of the fold then when you pass it through your die cutting machine the die won't cut the top of the fold.  This then will create your tag.

I then punched a hole and added a bit of twine from my own stash.

But if you spend over 60 euros/£45 there is some gorgeous ribbon you can get for free which would look amazing with this project.


Please check out the rest of the Sale-A-Bration products and receive your free gift on all qualifying orders.




If you would like to become part of the Stampin' Up family and receive your very fantastic starter kit then please join my Team.  Together we can have lots of crafty fun.

Incredible Like You

Hello everyone.

As the children are now back at school it means I can get crafty.  I have another project to share with you today using the oh so lovely Incredible Like You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

This gorgeous set is available in the new Spring/Summer catalogue and you can find all the other gorgeous products HERE.

While I was playing with the set I realised you could make sunflowers using the centre and the single petal stamp which is in the set.

So for todays card I made a pretty little background of sunflowers using So Saffron and Soft Suede.


I just stamped the flowers randomly all over a piece of white card stock then I added the little three circles stamp just to break it up a bit.

I then finished with a greeting which I also stamped in Soft Suede and used one of the circles from the stitched shapes framelits die set.


Don't forget Sale-A-Bration is also happening and for every £45 or 60 euros you spend you qualify for free items.  You can order from the annual catalogue and the new Spring/Summer.

 Check out all the details HERE.

We also have a fabulous joining offer if would like to become part of the Stampin' Up! family.
