A little bit of Sparkle and Shine!

Hello Girlies

A nice challenge awaits you at Sweet Stampin' this Saturday, and guess what? It's our Birthday too, so more lovely prizes up for grabs. Please remember for a chance to win you MUST STAMP somewhere on your project.
So the challenge this week is "Sparkle and Shine"...yipee, we all love a touch of glamour, right!
Sponsors are Crafts u love.

As we are soooooo close to the Christmas Season, no excuses for not joining in with this challenge.
Our sponsors this week are Crafts u Love. Pleas STAMP somewhere on your project to enter.

This is a new stamp I have only had a few weeks, and It is quite large. This is it on a 7x7 card.
It is made by Woodware and it is such fun to colour and stamp. I have decoupaged a few bits on it and covered it with Stardust Stickles (sorry you cannot see it very well, but I promise it is their).
Coloured with Pro-Markers.

Dies and Punches..

Hi girls.

Well as this card goes live (scheduled)...I will be flying through the air on the way to Benidorm with Mum and Sister. We last went in May, so we are soooo looking forward to going back.
We are meeting our friends at La Nucia (about 6 miles from the center of Benidorm) and other friends are already their and waiting for us.

So.... This is my card for the Challenge this week of "Use Dies and Punches" at Sweet Stampin', and our sponsors this week are "Live and Love Crafts".
Please don't forget we are a stamping challenge so some stamping somewhere (look at my card this week, it has a topper and dies and the only stamping is the sentiment, but that's acceptable!)

I have used both dies and punches on this card. I usually use these anyway, so this challenge is perfect for me.

The image is a LOTV topper and the papers are Dovecraft. The little bunting which i use all the time is a Memory Box die. The punched border is a MS punch. I have added some Stardust Stickles and a couple of Hobby House pearls. The sentiment is a Hero Art stamp.

That's an Old Stamp!!

Hello Ladies

Saturday in October means Challenge Time @ Sweet Stampin'....It's an easy one this week too, as it's "Antiques Roadshow" Which basically means "Use an old stamp".
Please remember we are a stamping challenge so you must stamp somewhere, ta.

I have chosen one of my little Easels for this week, oh I love making these.
I start by stamping a script stamp on the actual easel frame, then I work on the little topper for the frame.
I used some Pion Papers cut up and a few cut aparts from Graphic 45 papers. I have also used a large enamel heart button. The "Antiques roadshow old stamp" bit is one of my all time favorite Sentiment Stamps which I have had since I first began crafting (what feels like a hundred years ago!)
This "Live in the Moment" Stamp (by Hero Arts) has been used by me on so many projects It is always a "go to" for little projects like this..

Sweet Stampin' "Wheels" Challenge

Hello Girlies
I have scheduled this post as I am off "Spending" today...I will be at Port Sunlight "Happy Stamper" show, ooooo love it their. Come say hi if you are around.

Gosh, doesn't time fly, it's October already and only (28 days off my next holls to Benidorm with Mum and Sister) Yipeeeeee

So it's Saturday again, so another Sweet Stampin's Challenge for you and it's "Wheels" this week...
Our Sponsors are "US" so a goodie bag is up for grabs!
Please remember we are a STAMPING challenge, so you must stamp somewhere to be in the draw.

I am not very keen on the card I came up with, but I was having a play, so at the end of the day, it's all good fun.
The lovely stamps are freebies off a magazine I bought ages ago and the mask is by Clarity. I used a couple of Tim inks as the background. Wanted to keep it C&S and just play about with inks really.

I am still here.....just sooooo busy!!

Hello Ladies

No excuses for not being around, just time is catching up on me, never seem to have time lately for anything. Mind you the Rugby World Cup is on now, so I can be found watching that at the mo!

Anyway. I have been doing loads of crafting as always, but just not had time to blog any of it! Such a shame as at one time I blogged almost every day! Sure I will get more time soon, and I do love blogland, so will always be here and look at what all you talented ladies are up too.

I have managed to take a couple of photo's of the "C" Wallets I have made to sell at my coming fairs.
I am actually selling on Sunday this week, but it's probably a tad early to bring out the "C" stuff....or is it??

Both these wallets are made using an A4 sheet of white card, I fold them in half and chop about 2" off the edge so they fit in an A5 envelope. I fold up about 2" on the bottom inside the wallet to create a pocket, I cut this to form two pockets, and round the edges for the money/voucher to go. The other side I leave blank and usually stamp a "C" saying and this is where the name goes (should have taken a photo of inside but forgot!!)
I then wrap a ribbon round and leave enough to tie, cover in papers and add embellishments. Both these toppers are Hobby House, and the sentiments are a lovely set by LOTV.
In all I have made 10 of these (but usually make around 40 in all) they are great for giving someone a voucher or money. Make them using a Birthday Image too.

Thanks for looking ladies and thank you for all the lovely comment. X

Embossing Time!

Hi Ladies
Sorry I have not been around much, I wish there were more hours in the day.
Mind you sorting all my Daughter's Wedding Stationary is taking up such a lot of my time, I have to squash everything else in! (It's a year off yet!)

So Saturday again is Challenge Time at "Sweet Stampin".
This week it's the brilliant "Emboss it"! Who doesn't like a bit of Embossing? I do...
Please remember ladies that we are a "Stamping" challenge, so a spot of stamping somewhere on your project is a must in order to be entered for the prize!
Our Sponsors this week are "Flat Friends"...

I have chosen to make a "C" Card to add to my Slow growing stash!!
This die and Stamp are freebies on the cover of this months Papercraft essentials magazine.
The Snowflake folder on the inside is by Cuttlebug and is so crisp and lovely, I know it is not easy to see, so sorry about that. Paper circle is Graphic 45.
