Hello Colour feather card

Welcome friends

Todays cards feature two new stamp sets from the new Stampin Up catalogue Hello Colour and You’ve Got Style. These stamps are both such cute stamps and they both feature line stamps that I am able to colour in yipee. 0169ccc670823d6162399e5f24b88e02b3478e7262This is a very mono chrome card using pinks (powder pink from the new in colours) and I found this quite calming and very soft colouring, however any colouring would be fantastic.

I hope you are enjoying the run up to Easter and I pray that you remember the real reason for Easter, that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ suffered a terrible death so that we can be reconnected to God. It never ceases to amaze me of that kind of love.

WAMK Pillow box punch board

Hello friends

0159e0926ec537a05a91ee8da015341ed17b0a6209

Today I have a video for you about the pillow box punch board from We Are Memory Keepers.

I really enjoyed using it and it seems fairly straight forward and easy to use, however it is very much made for the right handed person (I am left although some things I can do with my right. To make the box I used some hand stamp DSP using varies stamps from Stampin Up (let me know in the comment if you would like a video tutorial on it). To make the flower I used the Blossom Builder Punch which with the stamp set is one of my favourites from Stampin Up. I also used the In colour 2016-2018 ink and cardstock to create the two flowers, my favourite part of the box.

Thanks and happy crafting

Pootler Design Week 4

0182c1f631e2016a2f41bee537e6604c93e6f8b1f3-2

I would just like to say a huge thank you to Sam for giving me the opportunity to be on January design team, and to those who have honoured me by coming to visit my blog.

For this week’s design, I decided to do a ‘Water colour’ picture using two of the stamps from Bella and friends. I used a few different inks and you can use whatever colours appeal to you. To dress up the frame I used the Blossom Builder Punch to cut the small petal out of Sweet Suger plum (one of the colours used in the painting) as I want to keep the colour them consistent. I stuck these on with mini glue dots so that they looked like they were gently falling, however, I think a hot glue gun would hold them better.

Many thanks and good luck to those who are in the February Design Team

Take care and happy crafting.

Pootler Design Week 3

 

img_01602Hello Friends,

Welcome to the third week of Pootlers Design week. I have done a card that is very much a scrap card. I made the striped mat (video coming on Friday) by cutting strips (1/2 inch) from some scrap designer series paper and laying them on the diagonal and butting them up together.  I then matted two pieces of DSP from the blooms and wished on white card and embossed on the dog with Chocolate Chip ink and our clear embossing powder.
