Circle Circus and Happiness Shared

Good Morning All

A little late with my class post this week.  Hope you're all well and enjoying the bank holiday weekend if in England.

I find circle circus such a versatile set to use so decided to actually use it as a two step stampin set this week!  Out came the stamp-a-ma-jig and away we went, such decisions when it comes to random stamping that it seems to take even longer to achieve at times, especially when doing the two step!

Our second card was using happiness shared and en francaise - absolutely gorgeous background stamp and I cant for the life of me think why it's taken me so long to purchase it.  I'm sure I'll use it so often now!  For this one we did a little making but stamping the flower in the centre then creating a mask to go over it and stamping the background stamp over!  Gorgeous result.  As as accent we used some crystal effects to highlight the main flower image, almost drawing it out of the page.

Take a look and let me know what you think, we had fun!

Stamp set's used: Circle Circus, Happiness Shared and En Francais

Silhouette Sentiments and Vintage Vogue

Good Evening All

Hope you're all well wherever you are and having a restfull weekend.

Today's class was the first in a few weeks as I'd taken a little study break.  We're back into the swing of things now and everyone did some gorgeous work this morning creating two beautifull projects.

The first, using Vintage Vogue involved a bit of concentration with cutting out all the flowers -" WHAT no punch for those gorgeous flowers was what I heard."  Sometimes we just have to work a little harder to get the results we want and this was one of them.  Needless to say with a little bit of "rock and roll" added in to get the colours on the flowers we were well under way.

The second card uses the hostess level one stamp set, Silhouette Sentiments.  We did a little emboss resist with this one and everyone was very impressed with the results that were achieved.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Stamp set's used: Vintage Vogue and Silhouette Sentiments and swirl from Trendy Trees
Punches used: Extra-Large Bird Punch and Decorative Label Punch

Good Morning All

Hope you're all well today.  I know I've been taking a little break the last few weeks but yesterday I got some superb inspiration on doing something a little different.  Yip  I've made some jewelry instead of cards.

I watched the very talented Kaz work her majic and was so inpired that I came straight home and made my two projects.

Take a look and let me know what you think, yes something a little different and I enjoyed every minute of it!  Hope the picture's clear enough for you to see them.

Stamp set used (brown): Pocket Silhouettes

4 You............

Good Afternoon Blogland

It's been a little while since I've posted anything on my blog, been having a short break but I've been caught out by one of my lovely customers!  This of course sent me straight to my craft room, on return from work, to do something especially for her.  Yip, Nicola this is for you................  As I know you have some of the products I've just used in creating "your" card, I hope you'll be inspired!

I've used the gorgeous blossom petals punch to create this card, along with two of the fab. embossing folders.  I've "curled" the petals using the wonderfull SU bone folder and done the shading with not quite navy pastel.

I finally got myself one of the SU bone folders and it's worth every penny as it is real bone.  I was so excited to discover this as a proper bone folder is the best crafting tool you can have.  I've had my other bone one since I started crafting over 18 years ago and it's still much loved and treated lovingly with olive oil every few months to keep it in good shape;-)

Take a look and let me know what you think

Greenhouse Garden

Good Morning

Hope you're all well and enjoying the holiday's if you're on them.  Me, I'm not.  Never mind, my time will come and hopefully the sun will still shine.

I used one of my favourite stamps set's for this card, actually I have many favourite Stampin' Up! sets that it's sometimes hard to decide.  This set is very versatile and it looks gorgeous in so very many colours that it has to be at the top of the list.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Stamp Set's Used: Greenhouse Garden and Afterthoughts (hostess)
