April & May ATCs


Back with some more ATCs.....
First up is Aprils, the topic being April Showers!!!!
Well sometimes I struggle to find something Stampin'Up! so unfortunatly the stamp is not Stampin'Up!, but everything else is.

I stamped the image in bashful blue onto bashful blue card, I then stamped the image again onto whisper white and coloured it in using Stampin'Up! markers. I cut it out and popped on some dimensionals and placed it over the image on the blue card. Then to finish it off I used Stampin'Ups crystal effects to highlight the rain and the puddle.

For May the topic was travel and I was spoilt for choice of which stamp set to use. I decided to go for the New 'The Open Sea' stamp set which I really love.

I thought I would go for a collage effect using the colours of the sea as my pallet with just a hint of red and brown.

I was really pleased with how they turned out, this stamp set is a joy to work with.
Anyhoo hope you enjoyed thanks for stopping by....

February ATC's


Just a bit late, this post was supposed to have been posted in February, oops.
I have been a bit remiss with my ATC posts so to catch up I have three months worth to show you.
This is what I came up with for February's ATC's, the topic was Faces, so I looked through my stamp collection and found this stamp set which I hadn't used in ages.
As I didn't have anything else I thought , go for it.. a bit of thinking outside the box...

I used the set Sense of Time and did a collage effect with the clock 'faces', well I did say it was outside the box !!!
I'll be back later with April and Mays ATCs
Anyhoo thanks for stopping by.......

May Make'n'Take


Back as promised with the make'n'take I did at Tuesdays workshop.

We had three colour ways to choose from Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Lucky Limeade, the backing paper was the Sale-a-Bration freebie Everyday Enchantment, I soo love this design..

The sentiment is from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes and the whisper white card is embossed with the perfect polka dots embossing folder.

We then used the NEW Blossom punch to cut out an appature, the favourite was to have it in the center but I quite liked it offset.

To finish off we punched out little flowers using the itty bitty punch and shaped them using a ball tool. Then we added tiny pearls to the center. 

I think everyone enjoyed making them, hope you enjoy them too, thanks for stopping by....

Owls, Owls, Owls


In case you haven't noticed I love Owls, in all shapes and forms.  I have made small Owl boxes, large Owl boxes, Owl cards, Owl soft toys, you can't go through my blog without finding an Owl here and there.....
Well today is no exception, I found the template for this little Owl gift bag on the internet and he is soooo cute.

 I filled him with little heart shaped jelly beans, which in themselves were tooo cute, but inside the Owl gift bag you might OD on cuteness!!!!!

I demo'd the bag at my last workshop and gave this one to the hostess as a gift,

I will have to photograph the make and take, they were using the new blossom punch, just gorgeous...

Anyhoo thats all for now, thanks for stopping by...

Pretty Paper Flowers


Just a quick post to show you these gorgeous flowers...

They are made using the small scallop circle punch and the large scallop circle punch.  I have made flowers before using the small scallop circle punch but had not combined the two. Really the photo doesn't do them justice.
The paper is the now unavailable Spiced Cake DSP finished off with a matching large brad.

Hope you like and thanks for stopping by....

Summer Mini Catalogue


Well its May and we have a new Summer Mini Catalogue and what a cracker it is.  We now have a scoring board, well I'm excited but then I have never had one so I'm looking forward to testing it out. To go with the board are two complimentary boards, one with metric measurements and one with diagonal lines.  Oooh I hear you cry!!!!!
Along with some gorgeous new stamp sets we have some new dies and some beautiful pleated ribbons, they are lush.
Check out the new designer papers, I particularly like the new Twiterpated DSP and there is Twiterpated Fabric as well, Yahoo......
So use the link and check it out for yourself and if you want anything you know where to come, just e-mail me I can supply all your crafting needs.
