Forget me Not!

It always amazes me by simnply changing the colour of stamps it can change the whole look of a card- I'm sure I mentioned that when I made the last wisteria card.  This is my Forget me Not card using the smallest blossoms from the Colourful Seasons stamp set. I love versatile stamp sets and this is sure to be one of them!

Wisteria Wonder

I love it when you can use stamp sets to do so much more then they were 'intended'? I guess? I say that with caution, as I think a lot of creativity is to do with the exploration and play.

As soon as you use a different ink colour it can completely change the whole look of a card. Infact this is how the card came about. I had used completely different colours to start with - then I got the idea to do wisteria.

Its a simple one layer card which is great even for beginners

This little Piggy...

I had so much fun stamping different hairstyles on this piggy! Can you see what I did? I took the plant which is supposed to match up with the plant pot to make this punky pig. I decided to change it up a bit for the second card and give him a Fez!

I used the bookcase builder stamp set and used the bright Lemonlime Twist (greeny yellow) and Melon Mambo (fuscia pink) teamed with black with teenagers in mind ;)

I'm so excited, I just can't hide it!



Well, its one of those highlights of my creative career where I have the pleasure and honour of being a Guest Designer for the Colour Inkspiration team!!!
And what a wonderful palette it is!

So this time they are twisting it up a bit- you can chose 4 or more colours.
Me, being me went for the double challenge of using all the colours!
I wanted to do something special, so I played and played, played some more.. I wasn't completely happy with my first attempt so I decided to try doing a galaxy look.  I used the swirly bird stamp set and teamed it with the stars from Moon Baby.  I will try and do you tube tutorial...


Please carry along the hop to check out all the amazing creative designs from the team.
Thanks for stopping by. Next is the lovely Browyn, click on the badge below

When the going gets tough, the tough get going


The latest Colour Inkspiration Colour Challenge!

Well I had some new toys to play with!! A lovely big box of Stampin' Up! goodness. I thought this was going to be simple! Well to be honest, I found the colours tricky to work with, I tried my new paste and ruffle embossing... nope it wasnt having any of it. I wan't the emphasis to be on the feather and the ombre faeture in the centre. It finally ended up like this- What I am calling a window card

I used Hello Colour for the feather and pattern, Oh So eclectic Dies to cut out the back ground and silver thread on the feather.  Oh yes I used the spinge brayers to ombre soft suede on the early expresson frame, stamped marina mist card inside for the finishing detail.

Whatever you do - don't ask me where you are supposed to write! The answer is probably on the back of the card!! lol

SPECIAL BLOG POST NEXT WEEK- YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE GUEST DESIGNER OF THE NEXT CHALLENGE- EEEEKKKKKK!

Sometimes sticking to one colour one stamp set can be out of us crafters comfort zone.  Hopefully this card proves to crafters and none crafters it is easy, simple and with effective results.  I added a bit more detail to make it into a Father's Day card. Go and try it yourself! Monochrome may sound boring, but it isnt ;)

I remember when my son first told me about these fidget spinner things. I was like a what?? And now... well now there is no getting away with them.  Some crazes do seem as if they will last... There is so much variety out there- I do wonder if this is here to stay? A bit like the onesies I guess... Anyway I digress...
I saw a few people make fidget spinner cards, some looked a little more complicated than others. Plucking out some tips from other videos and having a play with what I had, I managed to make my own, to my surprise it actually spun too! lol
I used the sentiment and swish from the Number of years stamp set
Perfect! These are now all ready to go to my nephews for their birthday!  I'm sure if you changed the colours you can easily make a girly version too!
