IMG_5753 (Medium)IMG_5754 (Medium)IMG_5755 (Medium)Three more cards today made with Prima Tea Thyme paper collection, and matching stickers and chipboard. On all these cards I have also used bling, lace, ribbon,and flowers, or a mixture of these embellishments.One more post with this paper and then we will move onto something else. A busy weekend with not much crafting, although I did get my classes for April done. This week I have my new kitchen being installed, so its been a busy time getting ready for that, and I had a primary school class reunion yesterday, so lots of time spent catching up with old friends I hadn’t seen for over 40 years! Hopefully next weekend will be a little quieter! Til tomorrow….

IMG_5751 (Medium)IMG_5752 (Medium)early post today as I may not get back on here today… very busy…..Prima tea Thyme collection – the top card also uses the matching stickers, and some pearls, ribbon and lace. the bottom card uses all that, plus some chipboard which I stamped on with staz-on ink and a stampin up sentiment stamp.Staz on ink is the best for these shiny chipboard pieces because it doesnt smudge.Til tomorrow…..

Prima Tea Thyme number 10 and 11


IMG_5749 (Medium)IMG_5750 (Medium)So, the very first collection of papers I took out to sort through was Prima tea Thyme. I didn’t get very far in the sorting out, but got streets ahead in the card making, and none of this paper made it into the discard pile!The top card had so much embellishing including…ribbon,lace,punched butterflies,rhinestones,kindyglitz,letter stickers, chipboard,and a flower. The bottom card escaped most of my over the top embellishing and just had a journalling card from the same collection,punched butterflies, ribbon ,lace and rhinestones.A few more to show in this collections but we will do them over the next day or two in groups of two or three. this morning I taught a class over at Paper Flourish, and as usual enjoyed my time spent with my ladies,who are much more like friends than students! Til tomorrow….

Stampin Up Lotus Blossom stamp set

1 Comment

IMG_8560 (Medium)IMG_8561 (Medium)This stamp set from Stampin Up is a three step stamp set which means you stamp the flowers up in layers, laying the solid stamp down first in the lightest colour, and then the second stamp which has more petal detail second and the last layer which is really just highlighting in the darkest colour. The top card , which was inspired by a card I pinned to my pinterest board, uses all stampin up products including ribbon and patterned paper. The bottom cards have some cardstock punched with my martha stewart doily border punch. Nearly time to go to work, so til tomorrow……

Stampin Up Guy Greetings stamp set number 2…


IMG_8557 (Medium)IMG_8553 (Medium)As promised, the bottom card shows what I did with the extra hat and mustache I die cut with Sizzix top hats and Mustaches die set. So simple – only added googly eyes and a stamped banner greeting. the patterned paper was on my table,( not sure what company )and the cardstock was stampin up early espresso. For the top card I took inspiration from pinterest -when I buy a new stamp set I always have a look to see what other people are doing with it, and the first card made is usually a variation on one of these ideas, to get me into the swing of working with the stamp set. I find after the first card the ideas come naturally thick and fast! so, inspired by pinterest, but with a few different elements. I added some twine,stamped in early espresso ink ( stampin Up) and the cardstock is also stampin up – early espresso, sahara sand, and ivory confetti ( sadly the last one is retired, so no longer available). No craft room today – We are off out looking for new floor coverings… til tomorrow….
