Mask the effect

Its fun to play with something ab bit different that creates different effects. What am I talking about? Stencils! These masking stencils from Stampin Up are great for creating ombre effects and shapes with sponging and inks.  The thick vellum strikes again! Love the fact you can stencil, ink, emboss, stamp... you name it...  I created this card for a 1st Wedding Anniversary using their themed colour of purple and left over organza ribbon from the wedding.

This card was desgined for my Neice's birthday, something young and modern, with some sparkly gold washi tape from SAle-A-Bration, but glitter paper can be used for the same effect.


Well the boys sports day started dry... and then come the afternoon... They started off but with a few to many slipping over it was called to a hault.  My eldest son was saved from having to do the backward racing!

And just look at these cuties! Not mine I hasten to add, but like a Grandma I enjoyed the cuddles lol!  6 1 day old Guinea pigs, very tiny, very cute and they snuggled up in this half empty egg box. Everyone say awwwww

One for the Mother, 2 for the show

One way of being able to share my passion and love for stamping is doing You Tube videos.  I used to love the idea of being a Children's Television presenter, so I guess this is as close as I am going to get.

This card was made for my Mum, I thought she would appreciate the delicate flowers from the Birthday Blossoms set, and the colours somehow reminded me of her.  Mint Macoron for the soft green, Melon Mambo and daffodil delight for the centre.

I used the Gift Bag Punch board to make a matching bag to put some earrings inside too.

Let me introduce you

A closer look at this years 'In-Colours' Please may I introduce you from right to left to:
Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy.  Wait! There is one missing and that is a pinky colour called Flirty Flamingo!
All these are available with matching ink pads, card stock, marker pens, ribbon and papers.

The gorgeous copper paper you see there is from a set of new Designer series paper, flower punched with the pansy punch and stamped in the centre with another lovely new set 'Love and affection'
all available from my online shop


Look at this beauty! I went outside to take some photos and he was a sitting model.  I love the colours in its shell.  I did wonder if he would move, thankfully he did despite what looks like a crushed shell.
