Well whilst Miss Leonie was away without her stamps she issued her team with a colour challenge. So I decided to play along – it’s not compulsory but it’s good to work outside of your comfort zone every now and then. These were the colours in the challenge and these are the colours I used: Daffodil Delight Peekaboo Peach Flirty Flamingo Melon Mambo Rich Razzleberry This is my eldest Grand daughter, Paige at her cousin Scarlett’s 1st birthday in 2015….

Anyway I have 2 projects to share with you today. Here’s my first: I’ve combined the new Beautiful You Stamp Set from the current Occasions Catalogue with… Read more »

The other day I shared this bag I’d made with the Gift Bag Punch Board featuring the Falling In Love Embellishments from the Occasions Catalogue. Now these embellishments are Very Vanilla, however to change the colour is quite easy with some Stampin’ Emboss Powder. CAUTION: When doing this with your Heat Tool, please be sure to use tweezers or something similar to hold the embellishment so you prevent burnt or sore fingers. Here’s what they look like in the Catalogue:… Read more »

I shared this card the other day but thought I’d share it with you again along with the Stampin’ Up! Video about this gorgeous paper. Now I’m not a great fan of colouring in – I failed at it in school. I make cards and memory albums as my ‘stress relief’. However can I say, this paper combined with Stampin’ Up!’s new Watercolor Pencils, is just wonderful. I chose to just colour small pieces of this paper as a card… Read more »

So, today’s tip is about water colouring on Stampin’ Up!s watercolor paper with a spritzer and inks. I had a lot of fun making this card and the technique is very easy. Now here’s the card without the spritzing and no layers. An easy card to use as a Make and Take at a workshop. This set teams nicely with Awesomely Artistic and I used the dragonfly from that set to stamp inside the card and on the front and… Read more »
