Birthday Time

Last week, my friend's little girl, Grace, turned 3.  From the photos it looks like Grace had a fabulous birthday.  Here is the card that I made for her:

I used a melon mambo coloured card as a base.  I then took more of the card and embossed it using a yummy Stampin' Up folder (love this one).

I then die cut a 'deco' label and word band in lilac.  The '3' was die cut from the Tim Holtz 'wordplay' die.

The owl was die cut onto Kraft card stock.

I know that mummy liked it, and am sure that Grace did too!!

Rebel Stampers ATC Swap

It is that time again over at the Rebel Stampers site.

The Craft Stamper atc was based on the phrase stamp from the April edition.  Here is my creation:

I covered an atc in Prima paper.  The image was stamped in Archival ink.

Flowers and pins were added to the bottom right corner to finish.

The other theme for the month was 'ABC'.  Here is my atc:

I covered an atc with gorgeous Stampin' Up papers that I have had for ages (they are long discontinued!).  I then stamped ABC in the corners.  Very simple, though hopefully, effective!

Thanks for looking.....

Rebel Stampers Tag Swap

The letter 'D' was the theme for April's tag swap.  Here is my tag

I added 3 colours of distress paint onto my craft mat, spritzed them with water and swiped my tag through it.  The tag was the dried and the same colours of distress ink added to the tag to deepen the colours.

Next I stamped the images in black Archival ink and dried with a heat gun to set the ink.

To finish I added a ruler and film ribbon and the letter D.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking....

#3Up Paper Artsy Challenge

A few weeks ago I entered the opportunity to appear on the Paper Artsy blog using their new Hot Picks stamps.  I was thrilled when I arrived home from work one day and saw an envelope with a set of stamps and instructions.

I spent all night stroking the stamps (I know.... we all do it though) and thinking of ideas for my creation for the blog.  The next day I set to work and the ideas flowed.  Here is my end creation

 I won't tell you how I made it as all of those details are on the Paper Artsy blog.  The project went live last week (3rd May) and I was delighted to see it!

Thanks to the folks at Paper Artsy for the great opportunity..... and thank you for your visit to my blog.
