Balloon Celebration and Water Colour Wishes kit



Hello Crafters

I like the multi-stamped cards with the smaller stamps, it means you can fill the whole page with them and it does not look over crowded.

I love the words in the Water Colour Wishes kit and the cards you can make from the kit are also very lovely.  You can see some on my blog that I made and posted back in July.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Moroccan Nights


Hello Crafters,

I love the Moroccan Nights stamp set, so googled it and  Diane Browning's design caught my eye so I just had to give it a go.

I also managed to make two cards out of piece, as I stamped one piece of card and then cut it in half.  

The only trouble I had was picking what colours to use.

Not sure if I want to add sparkles as Diane's have got pearls on them.

Many thanks for looking at my blog.

Painted Petals Water Colour



Hello Crafters,

Another card idea from blogland, this time from Shelli Co Founder of Stampin' Up! from Julie Davison's Blog.


Saw this and thought I would give it a go, sand I was do surprised that it worked out so well, so well in fact that I ended up making 10 of them :-) well I had to do something whilst waiting for the water to dry.  

I didn't use water colour paper as I could not find where I had put it, so I used normal card stock and I think it did alright.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Grateful Bunch Again


Hello Crafters,

Another Grateful Bunch card from the internet, I can not stop using this stamp set.  I think it is because it has a punch with it, that makes it so versatile to use (and because I have a container full of the flowers :-)).

I either crochet or stamp and punch when I get bored and depending on where I am, A little container and a punch keeps me happy and quiet for five minutes (ok so it doesn't keep me quiet)!

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Grateful Bunch Cards


Hello Crafters,

More cards using the Grateful Bunch stamp set and punch.This card was CASE'd from the internet, but I can not find the lady's blog I saw it in, but will let you know when.

I stamped and punched lots of the flowers and put them into a container so I have lots more for other cards, Found this the best way to make the cards faster.  

The boarder or shelf as it looks on the card has been stamped in silver.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

Touches of Texture



Hello Crafters,

I brought Touches of Texture stamp set as I ad so many ideas going round my head, but the only problem is my head and my hands never get together and make the pictures I see.

Merry Medley for Pinkies Blog Hop



Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue.  Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to hopping!

Only a few more days before you can get your hands on the new Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue with all the lovely items from this blog hop.

Thank you for joining me from Jerim's blog.


I have been neglecting my blog and decided what better way to get back into it than join the Pinkies Blog Hop, the only trouble is I could not make up my mind which lovely stamp set I would use to do the cards for this blog hop as there are (as always) so many lovely ones in the new Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue.  So I made several using several sets and went from there.

These are the cards I decided on, what do you think? 





I do love the large stamps as they cover a large area with little effort, and you only have to embellish then to make them "pop".  “Merry Medley” is a lovely Christmas stamp with lots of Christmas wording on,

I also used the “Greetings from Santa” set for most of the sentiments, but the Joy to the World came from "Tin of Tags" and the beautiful stars are cut using "Starlight Thinlits die"  

Janneke is next, enjoy the blog hop and the lovely projects the Pinkies have made for you.

Penned and Painted

Hello Crafters,

These cards have been made with the Penned and Painted stamp set from Stampin Up.  I love this style of stamp and I love the two step stamping.

Must try with the subtles inks as I think this would give more of a water colour effect.

Thank you for looking at my blog.

6 Years as a Stampin Up Demo



Hello Crafters, 

I received this beautiful card and gift in the post to celebrate my 6 years with Stampin Up! from my wonderful upline Michelle Last.  

What took me by surprise is that I had placed my order but forgot to put the Aqua Painters on it. And as if by magic Michelle knew exactly what I wanted, how spooky is that.

Thank you Michelle for being my upline and putting up with me for 6 years lol.

Thank you for looking at my blog.
