Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  

 Our theme this time is Love.

This is about the 27th card I made for this challenge, it's only now when I write the blog post that I decided which to use! 

I've used the Tracey Hey Rocking the Wreath set and some Distress Oxide (I now can't remember if it was Rustic Wilderness or Lucky Clover)

Own Up!

Hello.

I suppose one good thing about our current situation is that it gives me time to play.

This wee panel started off as a cut off of something else I was doing and it ended up like this!

This wee Vera Lane image - Bright Ideas was perfect for the Tim Holtz sentiment strip.....

Love a Teddy

Hello 

I've got another Whimsy  card to share with you today.

It's another of the new releases for this month from Some Odd Girl, Teddy Bear Valentine.  I've also made a wee envelope using a couple of sentiment sets.  I think it works quite well.

A Big Cake.....

Hello.

Wherever you are I hope you're safe and well.  Here in Scotland we're still in lockdown until mid February at the earliest.  I can't tell if this is the original one, the "2 week" circuit breaker one, the "you had a day off for Christmas, let's lock everything down again" one or an entirely new one.

Anyway, let's not discuss it further this is a covid free zone.

Today's card is the card I made for the lovely Chris from Sweet Stampin'  who had a birthday recently and what better way to have a birthday than a cake as big as your head!

Blogging this now it has just struck me that I really have no idea what I used, I just got a whole load of stamps and stencils out and played to make the background! I must start writing these things down!

Which Would You Choose?

Hello.

Today's card is one I made last year for my friend's daughter.  This makes me so sad as we see them quite often - we always spend Easter Sunday with them too and have various other get togethers through the year but sadly, it's been nearly a year since we saw them (at Strictly Live) because of f*!"£$%g covid.  I have to add though, the card isn't that old - it was only her birthday at the end of November and I spent all of December sharing Christmassy items with you!!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  It's been a bit weird not having a weekly Sweet Stampin' post as we're now fortnightly!

 Our theme this time is Thank You. 

I started off with the intention of doing one thing and ended up doing another.

This is a thank you card for all the teachers who have been facilitating online learning this week! It's been tough for the kids, the parents and for them too!  I used an online WordArt tool to create a thank you background.  You'll notice, if you look closely, that there's some Scottish phrases in there too!!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  We've made a change over at Sweet Stampin' and our challenges will now be fortnightly instead of weekly!

 Our theme this time is New. 

I've gone for new year with this card.

This was a image was freebie over in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group so I thought it would be good just to put it on a wee inky background.

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge

Hello.

Happy New Year.  Let's hope that this year is much better than the year that shall not be named.

An exciting start to the year - I've been asked to join the Design Team at Crafts Galore Encore which is a monthly challenge you'll find here.

We're sponsored by


who very kindly gave the DT some images to play with.  I've used the lovely Daisy Panel for my card and I've made the background using some distress oxides.  I cut a frame using the WRMK punch board - I keep forgetting I've got this but it's so handy!
