Aces and Diamonds Team Challenge for #GDP014

Every month, my team, the Aces and Diamonds, and I get together for our meeting filled crafty inspiration and our obligatory cheeseboard (sometimes we swap it for cake, but cheese seems customary now!). We swap cards, do some make and takes and I set them home with a challenge to create something from a given set of supplies.  Being ill last week meant my own entry was a little late… Read More »

That Thing you Did for Fab Friday and TGIF Challenges

I wanted to take part in a challenge so I teamed up the Colour Challenge over at TGIF with the sketch challenge at Fab Friday. Here were the challenges… When I saw the colours, my first reaction was Halloween and Autumn and then I had a flashback to the décor in my childhood home.  My own childhood bedroom was Pumpkin Pie, my sister’s room next door was Rich Razzleberry and… Read More »

Stampin’ Up That Thing You Did for PPA #260

It’s the weekend, so time for a challenge!  This week, I was drawn to the sketch challenge over at Pals Paper Arts. Here is the sketch. And here is what I came up with… I just received this set recently and just love the fonts of all the sentiments. The swirls remind me of Wonder Woman for some reason, what about you?  I’m also thinking glam rock, disco and glitter balls… Read More »

Watercolour words with Gorgeous Grunge for Simply Less is More

Time for a challenge, I thought.  I saw a challenge which really is a challenge for me on Simply Less is More.  One layer and Male – that is probably the toughest challenge of them all for me.  One layer is tough enough, and male can be difficult, but combined?! This is what I came up with I was inspired by the name badge of one of my Stampin’ Creative Blog… Read More »

Stampin’ Creative May Blog Hop – Sneak Peaks!

It’s almost new catalogue time, excited?? Me too!  As demonstrators we have the privilege of being able to receive and order early from the new catalogues and one of the sets I chose was a set called… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Punch Art for Birthday Cards

It was my eldest daughter’s birthday yesterday and she had requested a Cat Birthday card!  (we’re currently going through a cat obsession!!).  I don’t have any cat stamps so I decided to pull out my punches and create a little punch art. I had to have a quick glance at Pinterest for a little inspiration for my perfect cat, and then had a look round my stash for the perfect… Read More »

Stampin’ Up – Private Card Class

I had a private card class last night for my lovely hostess, Nora.  She had requested we make a medley of cards that she could recreate with her children as she likes to make Thank you’s and Birthday cards with them.  So I was happy to oblige! The first one I shared  on my Facebook page last night, it uses Little Buddy Birthday – which is my favourite set to… Read More »

Stampin’ Up – Spiderman Punch Art

It’s a big day in our house today as my little boy turns 5! He quite likes Superheroes and Spiderman is probably his favourite, so I thought I would dust off my punches and make a Punch Art Spiderman. I had a quick look at Pinterest and Google for some inspiration, but I had to improvise as some of the punches used in other people’s cards were either retired or… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Lotus Blossom Birthday card

I have a beautiful card to share with you today using the Lotus Blossom set that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration. I got the colour combination idea after first having seen a similar card on Beth McAlexander’s blog and decided it would make a perfect Birthday card for my Mum.  I think I’m safe enough posting this card ahead of her Birthday as don’t think she looks at… Read More »

Little Buddy Children’s Birthday Card

With three small children in the house, you can never have enough Birthday cards in the house ready to go.  But for some reason, a Birthday party seemed to sneak up on me this morning without a card ready!! Call it a hangover from Christmas!! Thankfully, I remembered my recent purchase of Little Buddy Birthday and decided to ink it up.  I also recently received Sweet Taffy DSP so thought I would… Read More »

Last of the Male Birthday cards…

Today, I am sharing the last of my male Birthday cards.  This is another one for my stepson and I hope he liked it.  I think his favourite was the first one I shared from the kids, but I have it on good authority that he liked this one too. Time was against me, which is always the way, when you are crafting for friends and family, so this was was… Read More »

More Male Birthday Cards …

I have another couple of Birthday card to share with you today as it’s my husband’s birthday tomorrow. These are  the cards my children made for him. My daughter (6) was totally in charge of hers, with colour choice, stamp choice and placement.  The little owls were chosen to represent herself, her little brother and sister.  I masked off the sentiment for her as it didn’t suit our card.  I… Read More »
