Hello Reader,

Today the card i am sharing with you, is made using a stamp from Stampin’ Up! i really liked the sentiment and i felt that it was a good one to have in the box ready for any rocky times.  I like to let my friends know i am there for them or thinking of them if things are difficult for a while and what better way than a handmade card.  I coloured the image with coloured pencils and for a change corner punched the layers to give a different look.

Hello Reader;

In February i wanted to send some valentines to my friends and pen pals so i made these little note cards.  All the supplies are from Stampin’ Up! It’s quiet an eclectic make using embossing powders in gold and clear and washi tape, doilies and twine and of course a few  gems and pearls.  I also did some stitching and pricking.

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing a card, made for those hard to make for men.  The stamp set is from Stampin’ Up!, i did a bit of inking on the background to give it a sky and clouds feel.  I really liked this stamp set, i think it will end up getting a lot of use 🙂 {the set was part of their sale-a-bration promotion and is no longer available.}

Birthday Balloons…

2016-02-17 17.08.45

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing a card that i made recently, i had seen a similar card on Michelle Last’s blog and it reminded me of this pop up technique that i hadn’t made for ages! So of course i had to make one, I used the Stampin Up! Balloon punch and a matching stamp set.  How the pop up works is that you pull the tab and that pops the balloons up and reveals the birthday message. Instead of an envelope i used a polka dot treat bag.

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing with you an ATC that was made for my friend, using the swallowtail stamp from Stampin’ Up! I layered up some back ground stamps before i stamped the butterfly.  The quote was written by hand before being added and finished off with a few small flowers and gems and pearls.

Rainbow Fairy Tale…

Hello Reader

Today i am sharing a pocket letter that i made for a swap.  I had had an idea floating around in my head for a pocket letter filled with sequins to create a sky feel, now this is a slightly different way for pocket letters as traditionally you fill the backs of the pockets with treats for your swap partner. The images are all from Lawn Fawn and are coloured in pencil.

Swallowtail for you…

Hello Reader;

Today i am sharing a card with you that i sent to a friend a while ago; it was made using the swallowtail stamp from Stampin’ Up! and i created a shaker aperture using a similar butterfly with some shrink plastic to make teeny butterflies which i added to some beads and sequins.
