Saturday Simply Sketched Challenge; June 2017

My Project 6-001

Hi everyone!

We decided to mix it up a bit this month and go for a colour challenge rather than a sketch, and the lovey Hannah gave us these to play around with…

I love that Hannah has pushed us out of our comfort zone with this one.  I knew straight away which stamp set I wanted to use, especially with Bushing Bride featuring…

Aren’t these pigs just the cutest! We saw them in Convention back in April and lets just say there was nearly a scuffle when it came to Prize Patrol!

Wow what a challenge Jerim set us this time! The theme was “create something winter themed but not Christmas”.  I thought it would be fairly straight forward but with Christmas having been so recent I could not shift my head away from thinking about it!After a searching through my stamp sets and punches I finally found some inspiration with the ‘Foxy Friends’ stamp set

I love the wreath effect on this, wish I’d thought of it for some Christmas cards but I have a few ideas brewing for it now!

Pootlers Design Team December 2016 week 1 – Merry Christmas!

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n.jpg

Hi everyone!

I have the great honour this month to be a part of the Pootler’s Design Team.  The stamps we will be featuring are from the Live, Love, Grow set.  I’ve seen it a few times in the catalogue but skimmed over it so I did panic slightly when I received this!  However, once I made my first project the ideas came thick and fast!!

I was absolutely thrilled when the wreath worked out, I think it works really well and the copper just adds to the image to make it really pop.

For the bow I simply folded a piece of the burlap ribbon so the two ends met in the middle, I then tied metallic thread to give it the ribbon appearance.

I hope you like my project today and I’m looking forward to sharing my other projects with you over the coming weeks.

What an exciting month I’ve had! Two of my oldest (known the bride since I was 3!) friends got married, and I went to training in Telford with Stampin’ Up! Was so lovely to see my second family!

Today’s sketch was provided by the lovely Karen McDonald.

My Project 14-001

I will admit I struggled with this one but have attempted it! Was torn between several stamp sets, but decided to stick to Balloon Celebration because I LOVE it!!

For the four that needed highlighting as per the sketch I attached bakers twine and sequin trim, they are also mounted with dimensional foam pads.

I really hope you like today’s offering, don’t forget to carry on hopping along to Kathleen’s blog, she has something wonderful to share with you all!

Today’s sketch is by the fabulous Justyna.  I adore this sketch! It’s so pretty and immediately gave me loads of ideas.  Anyone who has bought the tin of cards kit will see the similarity to the gold stripes that came with it.  That’s what I saw anyway so knew I wanted to use gold.

The Hostess stamp set ‘A Whole Lot of Lovely’ was calling me to use on the card, and combined with a pop of Watermelon Wonder I think it really jumps out at you.

The Botanical Builder Dies were a must have after seeing some of the incredible things that Toni (another lady in this hop) had made with them.  I’m really glad I got them now and hope they’re carried over into the annual catalogue so I can continue to use!

So today’s card is simple, but I hope it’s making the standout impression I was aiming for.

Please do hop over to Kathleen next, or back to Amy, who is sadly leaving the hop after this months 😦

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Thanks for stopping by!
