{Pink Diamond Wedding Card}

Hi everyone!
It feels like ages since I blogged.
Life has been busy in my house, my eldest son had his GCSE results recently and I am pleased to announce he did well and has been able to study the subjects he wanted at A level.  My 3rd son has just started High School and the school has revamped their uniform to a smart blazer and tie, so the obligatory first day at school picture just has to be shared!


A friend requested a special card for a couple celebrating their diamond wedding anniversary, she wanted a Bible verse (sorry not a Stampin' Up! stamp), and requested pink and sparkly.



I cut out all the elements and assembled it during a live broadcast, I've taken the video and edited it to give you an idea of the process, enjoy!

{Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018 - One Sheet Wonder}

Welcome to the...

8th Round of the
Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018

Be inspired every month with a Christmas Challenge on the 25th of the month.

We are now onto the 8th challenge and its to make as many cards a you can using the
One Sheet Wonder technique


The are a couple of approaches you can take.

Take a whole sheet of Designed Series Paper and cut it up into sections and use it however you choose to create some cards.  as can be seen in Ellen  and Rosalie's videos here...



Or you can create your own paper by using stamps and either use it as a full background as I have or cut it up into pieces as Denise does here...



For mine I decided to stamp with some background stamps and a stamp set that will be available very soon.  I broadcast how I made it live on YouTube, here is the video of the process...




I've taken some screen shots of how the paper looked at various stages...







and here are the final cards.





I love how they turned out!

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Twinkle Twinkle}

Hi there, and thank you for popping over for the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop, please have a look at the other blogs to get more inspiration for the very elegant
Twinkle Twinkle Suite.



The suite contains lots of products suitable for making baby themed cards.


One of the items is this collection of papers which I purchased for this blog hop.
After having a lovely play with them I realised that the patterns were really versatile.


I created these two cards by pairing the papers with the Pop of Petals bundle and a sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set.


Can you see how I stamped flowers directly onto the dotty designer series paper?


All the pretty pieces of paper lace come from the lazer cut speciality DSP, it's gorgeous and it goes such a long way as you ca cut little pieces from it as needed. 


I use the new pick tool that is going to be available really soon to pick up and stick down the sequins, it was so handy.



As part of the blog hop I was asked to make a 3D item as well using items from the suite.  I ued some of the remnant pieces to decorate this pillow box.  Such a lovely way to house a little gift.




Thanks for popping by, do have a look at what the other participants have created.
