Daisy with Night of Navy & Lemon Lime Twist

Good morning, hope you are all enjoying your day.  Thankfully the sun is shining again .  Always makes me feel so much better when it shines!
Today I am sharing a card that I had prepared for a shoebox swap that I was supposed to be joining in with a few weeks back but unfortunately I wasn't able to go at the last minute.
I have now sent out these to the recipients and am now able to share with you.
I LOVE these two colours together don't you!
Of course there is the glitter added as per usual.
Hope you have a lovely day
Take care

Elegant Eggplant and Daisy


Hi,
Today's card is one that I made for another crafty friend for her birthday using the  Daisy stamp set and punch. This was the first thing that I purchased from the new catalogue.  I just knew that I would use it again and again.  I love my 3d flowers, especially if they sparkle, which by the way, this one does too with the help from the wink of stella pen!    The background stamp is from one of my other favourite stamp sets, Graceful Garden using another new In-Colour Lemon Lime Twist ink. Love it and yet I am not normally a "green" person.  Just shows you, you need to make yourself play with other colours even if you think you don't like them!
Once again, I hope the recipient liked her card.

I forgot to mention that I was inspired to make this card by a card I had received from Kim Fee of Simplyfairies, here is the  link to her gorgeous card.  http://kimfeecrafter.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/its-all-about-case-series-stampin-up-uk.html

Berry Burst rose

Hi
Another Birthday card for one of the Fairies team.  
I used the Graceful Garden rose stamp again, I think this one is going to be one of my favourite stamp sets!
I also love the new In-colour Berry Burst.  So vibrant when layered on to black card stock. 
Once again I used a watercolour wash underneath the rose and then went over it with the Wink of Stella to give it the sparkle effect that I soooo love to do!

I really hope my Fairy friend liked it!
Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by.
Take care

Graceful Garden rose

WOW, did you hear the thunder storms last night?!   I love storms and in my opinion, we don't have enough of them!  
Had a play with my new stamps over the last couple of evenings and decided to make the birthday cards that I needed for the month.
This one will be going to my sister (it's ok, she doesn't follow me on the blog), so I thought I could share this with you safely.   I just love the new Powder Pink in-colour introduced this year, so delicate.     You can't see in the pictures but I have used the Wink of Stella on the colour wash underneath the rose and I can assure you that it really sparkles!  Like me, my sister loves anything that sparkles. 
I just love the way that Stampin Up products all match.  No worrying about whether this or that shade of pink will go together!  No decisions to make!!
The fold design is from the amazing Amanda Bates of https://thecraftspa.blogspot.co.uk/  Amanda has lots of different types of folds she uses on cards. 





 Hope my sister likes it!


Thank you for stopping by today
Take care

Class makes in June

Hi all
Sorry I've only just remembered that I hadn't shared projects from our last class, as promised!
I do have excuses but I won't go into them.
Well, here is the first project.  I absolutely loved doing this project.  The colours, everything, are right up my street!   I cased the box design from a talented lady called EffiAnn. Check out her You Tube video  (the card designs are mine!)
I made this box with an acetate front to showcase the cards inside.  The cards inside are 4" x 4" cards


 
 
The ladies then chose how to decorate their own little cards.  These were three of my designs. The top two are using Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I adored but unfortunately have now retired from SU.  The bottom card was using inks on Very Vanilla cardstock instead of using DSP. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Take care
Jan xxxx
