Sad but was the time to go...

Hi Girls

Just thought I should tell you all I have decided to call it a day at the "Sweet Stampin'" Challenge.

I want to thank all the girls in the Team for their continued support and help over the years.
You are a lovely bunch of girls and i will try to keep in touch via blog visits.
I remember when Fiona asked me to join the team all that time ago, and I was delighted and shocked that someone liked my work enough to ask me to join a team.

I left a message on the SS blog yesterday in reply to Abi's message, but did not get a chance to say goodbye to the girls in the group at that time. I cannot now get on to see any replies as it is closed to me now, so anyone want to message me please do so on here.
All the best to all at SS, continued success.

Tags.....Make or use one on a project..

Hi Ladies

Another Saturday is on us and another Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin'....This week it's one of my favorites.....Tags...so tags on a your project or like me make a Big Tag!
Our Sponsors this week are JFF.

I love making these, and usually use a Prima Big Doll on them as these large tags are especially made for them.
This time I chose another of my favorite Stamp company's, Stamping Bella, and this one is "Uptown Girl Paisley has a Prezzie"....Isn't she just gorgeous?

I have used a Big Tag from the Prima Tag Set. Added ink through a hexagon mask, then added some script paper from an American Craft's pad. I finished with some big enamel dots and some lace. The image is coloured with Copic's.

How Old??

Hello All

As it's Saturday (wow they come round quick), it's challenge time at Sweet Stampin'....This week it's "How Old"....so use a number somewhere on your project. Good Luck guys.
Our sponsors this week are STIX 2.

My Neice's Daughter "Iris" is 4 next month so this was an ideal opportunity to make her card with a "4" on it!!
I started with a Craftwork Cards blank scalloped 6x6 card and used some leftover papers from my stash in  flowers and cakes.
I stamped the "Iris" using a set from Stampavie by Suzi Blu called Alphabet Upper.
I have die cut a Balloon and added the sticker 4.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge...

Hi Girls...
Another Saturday and can you believe it's March already? No...neither can I.
So this week the Challenge at Sweet Stampin' is "Unusual Hair Colour"! I know, I struggled with this one too....but there again any image can be coloured in a non-traditional hair colour way, you just have to think outside the box!! lol
I have used a Leanne Ellis image for my little ATC, hope you like it..
Our Sponsor's this week are Crafts and Me.

I am a little excited at the mo, as it's only 6 days then I am off to Benidorm with my Sister and Mum...Oooo yipeeeee. I believe it's quite hot at the moment, so a bonus when it's so cold here.

I have stamped this little image and coloured with Aqua Markers, which I used in a watercolour way.
Sweet little two and a half by 3 and a half size.

All you need is Love at Sweet Stampin'...

Hello All

February already, and as it's a Saturday, it's Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin'. This week with Valentines Day being round the corner, the Theme is "All you need is Love". Pop over and have a go. This week we are playing just for fun, but it's a nice challenge so go have a go why not.

No card from me today on this latest challenge. I have been making several of these mdf hearts and thought it perfect for the "Love" challenge this week. Hope you like it.
I painted the heart with gesso primer then Dovecraft Almond paint.
The lovely butterfly stamp is from a fairly new company called "Visible Image", here is a link to the web site, they are a super company and the stamps they produce are very different and sweet. http://visibleimage.co.uk/.
I have added a sentiment stamp from Inkilicious, a few splatters from an old SU set of stamps and some Hobbyhouse pearls, the tiny flowers are from my stash...These hearts from the MDF MAN come in several sizes, this one is about 6" wide and is a medium size.

Vintage or Shabby at Sweet Stampin'...

Hi everyone

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year and you are all back to "Craft Land" with a smile......I am, and have great plans for 2016, so watch this space!

So....A Saturday in January means....Challenge time at Sweet Stampin'. "Vintage or Shabby" is the theme, so go on have a go and try to win some goodies from our sponsors "Live and Love".

I have made a 60th Birthday card for a friend of my Daughter's, so decided to use this as a Vintage Theme, hope you think it's nice! Although it's a touch too "pink" for my liking!!

The papers are from a pad I bought recently in The Works, the bunting is one of my all time favorite Memory Box dies (it's a wonder this die cuts the amount I use it!) The lovely vintage sign sentiment is a stamp by Anna Griffin.
