Have a Sunshiney Day

It looks like the only summer days the UK is going to get ……. again ……. is those we create ourselves, so here’s a bright and summery card.  With this ridiculously wretched weather I need all the bright I can get my hands on.

I went digi today and decided to colour up Penguin Swings – now seriously, can you get any cuter than this?!?  I used the Sunshiney Day sentiment from my Vintage Sentiments stamp set, it was perfect for the sweet image.  I finished off the card with some foamiran flowers.  The large pink and blue flowers are made from my Peony Flower Die Set that I believe will be in stock again both here in the UK at Noor Design and Dies to Die For as well as Whimsy Stamps themselves by the end of the week.  You lot wiped them out lol.

And speaking of restocks, I have another die coming out in the next month or so, and like the peony, will be adaptable to be able to make more than one type of flower.  I love me some value for money!

The paper is First Edition Pretty Posy pad.  The doily die is by Crafters Companion and the tag die is from eBay

I finished off the flowers with some crinkled organza ribbon.  The sparkly centres of the blue flowers are another eBay purchase.  I swear I spend more time on eBay and my Kindle than I do in my craft room!

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Kornelia–Mum to be

I don’t think I’ve made a mum to be card before, so changed that by colouring up this sweet stamp Kornelia – Mum to be.  I went with peach colours to keep it gender neutral and of course had to use the sublime UKH Gallery Mademoiselle paper pad together with some pretty 100mm natural lace, all from Love to Craft and Create, along with the pre-requisite foamiran flowers!  The flowers are die cut from the Craft Passion Flowers set – 03 and Craft Passion Flowers set –06 dies.  The flowers are made using 0.6mm white Foamiran

Dress – R43, 21, 20, 000

Best Wishes

Here’s my last July showcase card for the Whimsy Stamps release.  You can find all the new products here

I’ve used two clear sets on my card – the fabulous FA Doodles which I used to stamp the black hand drawn lines around the border of the card as well as the sentiment which is from the Simple Sentiments set.

I used a little glass bottle that I filled with rhinestones for the centre of the resin frame.

And of course there’s oodles of Foamiran flowers – the turquoise and buttery yellow flowers are made from the Peony Flower Die Set.  I was so thrilled with how the roses turned out, given that the set wasn’t designed with roses in mind.  I love that I can get more than one type of flower from the die set, I do like value for money lol.

I finished the card off with some polystyrene balls and rhinestone flatbacks along with some waxed cord and distressed organza ribbon.

I do love this colour combo – and not a hint of pink either!

I used one of the elements from the stamp set as my focal point as it fitted on the tag beautifully and it was so easy to colour too.

I finished the card off with some mulberry flowers and a sentiment

I coloured the stamp with copic markers:

I’m still in Foamiran mania so made all the flowers.  The large frilly flower is made using the Peony Flower Die Set.

I used a paper pad that I picked up from The Range – Mix & Match Pink Highlights by Craft Sensations.  I think it was £3 or £4 for a 12 x 12 pad and is such a bargain because the quality is exceptional.  I love a bargain!
