Simply Sketched Sympathy Card

Unfortunately from time to time we all need a Sympathy Card - something to show people we care.  Today I am going to share one that I made using stamps from the Simply Sketched set. 

Here I have made a watercolour wash background with my Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker,Acrylic block and Spritzer before stamping the image and sentiment in Basic Gray.

To finish off I put some Linen Thread around before matting it on to Always Artichoke card stock.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Today I'm sharing with you a page that I made in Stampin' Up!s MDS (My Digital Studio) program, being a demonstrator we get to have sneak peaks of up coming products and this is one of them. I know this is on the back page of the catalogue but i can ensure you it is on its way!!

As I'm new to all this digital scrapbooking, some of you may find the page very plain but I thought it would be best to start simple then work my way up to the fancier things.......

Register your interest and be one of the first to know when Stampin' Up! s MDS is avaliable for purchase or if you wish to purchase any other Stampin' Up! products then  drop me an email at

Bermuda Blue Happy Birthday Card

Today's card is the last of my Serene Silhouette cards well for the time being........... This card uses the one image that I didn't use in my technique classes.

I stamped the image in the gorgeous new Bermuda Blue ink, before punching it out with a circle punch and then matting and layering in on layers of cardstock (Bermuda Blue and Whisper White) which run through the bigshot with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L.  The sentiment is from the Morning Meadow hostess set.

Thinking of You Serene Silhouette Card

Today's card  from my technique class featuresd the Brayer technique. 

Here we used several different colour inks to achieve the desired background tones on glossy card stock,  I did  a masked sun in the background but unfortunately the camera doesn't pick this up. 

Once this was dried we then stamped our image from Serene Silhouettes in Stazon along with the sentiment which is from the Four You set (page 22) onto another new colour Crushed Curry. Down the side of the card I have used some of the New Candy Dots...........I can't wait to play with some more of these in other colours!!

Be sure to pop back tomorrow  to see last card we made using different techniques, that  featured the Serene Silhouette stamp set.

Scrapbookin' On Sunday

Today I am going to share with you a Scrapbook layout  that I made for this months   Scrapbook Club. It features the Gingham Garden DSP.

As the papers have lots of flowers on them I decided that I would have to get out my Beautiful Wings Embosslits - which sadly I haven't used lately as I tend to grab my punches instead, but this time I wanted several different sizes and have different embossing patterns on them.  This is the beauty of the Embosslits they do the job 2 in 1 (see page 188 of the Annual catalogue for more styles) 

Remember if you are unable to attend in person then the Scrapbook Club is available by post so you can play along at home.

Wildflower Meadow Birthday Card

Today I am going to share with you a card that I made when I got together with some of my team the other day, it uses the new Wildflower Meadow background stamp.  This stamp also has a matching embossing folder which when purchased together entitles you to a 15% discount.

At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the stamp and suddenly  an idea popped into my head and that was to use the baby wipe technique with a selection of bright re inkers. 

The sentiment is from one of the new hostess sets Express yourself,  this new hostess set is becoming a favourite of mine as I seem to reach for if all the time at the moment.

Zoo Review Birthday Card

Today I can safely show you the card that I made the other day using  Zoo Review Stamp set as it is in the hands of the recipient my little sister!

For this card I have used the Stampin' Write Markers, acrylic block and my water spritzer to create the background before stamping the Giraffe. The sentiment is from one of the new hostess sets Express Yourself and then punched out with Modern Label punch. 

My sister loves giraffes and when I first saw this image in the catalogue I knew exactly who's card I was going to make using it.

Well I'm off to grab some of this glorious weather..........
