Dream Big!

We all need a dream or two…..three, four or more! If you’re going to dream then why not go BIG!

For this card I used the stunning stamp set Follow Your Dreams and the matching framelits.

The background was sponged then splashed lightly with water to add some texture. I used Gorgeous Grape, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Up! inks. The dream-catcher in the background was heat embossed in silver.

Follow Your Dreams and enjoy the ride!

The Beauty of the First Frost

I just love a cold,crisp and clear Winters’ day. We have been lucky enough to have a few of those recently with the sun shining in through the windows, brightening our day.

In the garden I have a standard miniature rose tree that hangs on to a few flowers right into the winter and when the first frost touches the petals it just looks so pretty. This stamp set makes me think of exactly those moments.

The Soft Sea Foam ink adds just a touch of wintery colour to the Rich Razzleberry flowers. The colour combo also includes what has become my ‘go to’ neutral, Gray Granite.

The elements of the card were so easy to cut using the matching framelits. I cut a few extra to save for later!

Not wanting to put the stamps away yet I just had to add some colour to the inside of the card.

I Made a Wish

Dandelion Wishes was one of the stamp sets that enticed me back to the world of Stampin’ Up! I made these cards for a team swap recently using the stamparatus and the marker to stamp colouring technique.

I loved the design but it needed just a little something….instead of reaching for the bling I added this cute little butterfly from the NEW Butterfly Gala stamp set.

I kept the butterfly black and white for a fresher look, and of course I made myself lots of spares for future projects using the co-ordinating punch.

The Best Time of Year

Happy New Year!

I love January….my Birthday month and it’s Saleabration time. Not only that, we also have a NEW Spring/Summer catalogue. If you need a copy of the new catalogues just send me a quick email and I will send one in the post or you can click on the images to the right for the PDF versions.

Here is a quick video to give you a quick taster of some of the new products.

Happy Browsing,

Good to be back….

It had been exactly one year since I stopped being a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!….until today.

Oh how I missed it – the community, the creativity, the products, but most of all spending time with amazing friends. So much had happened in life and I’m not really sure why but I hid away from things and people that mattered to me. It took a while to see it, but here I am back again, feeling very excited at the opportunities before me.


I really hope that you will enjoy sharing the creative journey with me, now off to play with my new goodies in my starter kit. Just look at all of the beautiful colours. Today I am a lucky lady!

Happy Stampin’
