Flamingo Thank You using Stampin’ Up! Products

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share with you this cute thank you card I made for a special friend of mine.

I recently went up to stay with her for the weekend and she always makes me feel so welcome so I wanted to show my gratitude.

How adorable are those Flamingo’s! or as my friends daughter calls them, ‘Mingo’s’!

I cut out one Flamingo, a water image, and a grass image, and stuck them to the cards using Dimensionals to create the 3D effect. I then topped the water image with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to create the glossy shine to the water.

I wanted to make the inside of the card match the outside, and the sentiment, I think, matches my friends personality!

Apologies for my absence of late, I’ve been really struggling to get into the crafting mindset and have numerous projects in my office that I’ve started but not found the inspiration to finish.  I’m very lucky though that my boyfriend is encouraging and is inspiring me to be more creative, so hopefully the crafters’ block will pass quickly!

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Triangle Box

Hi everyone

Something a little different from me today, I was messing around with some Easter Eggs I bought and knew I wanted to make a box for them.  Yes I’m a little late putting this up but it’s perfect for little gifts too!

I hope you enjoy this VIDEO (I know! First video in 3 years!) please do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

The Creative Flow – Foxy Winter Wishes!

15037240_10209733097277490_1526821120512193101_n.jpgThank you for joining us on our Creative Flow Blog Hop. Each month we are set a challenge to creatively stretch our imaginations. The products we have used are all available in the current Annual and/or seasonal Stampin’ Up!® catalogues. To hop along, please use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping.

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!

Simply Sketched Challenge: November 2016

My Project 6-001

Hi everyone!

So after 7 months I’m FINALLY jumping back into our Simply Sketched Challenges.  I’ve really missed doing these challenges and must admit I’m still not 100% with my crafting skills so have struggled to come up with something despite loving the beautiful sketch by Anna.

Isn’t it the cutest! I really wanted to use an image but then realised I haven’t allowed self to buy anything new so I decided to go back to an old favourite.

I do love the copper trend that’s around at the moment and made use of the new copper foil in the background.

I’m sorry for the poor photos, I finally finished at 11:30 last night so light was not the best for photography!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my sketch today.  Don’t forget to use the buttons below to jump over to Hannah’s piece, or back to Justyna’s.

Thanks for stopping by!
