{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday-Needle and Thread Stampin' Up!}

Hello there, and welcome to my blog.

Although I have been a "crafter" all my life, I came upon rubber stamping about 10 years ago.  I realised that when I had a stamp I could reproduce beautiful patterns and words in all sort of colours and an infinite amount of times.

Stampin' Up! make coordinating these images so easy as they design in collection of products and stamp sets.

Here is one such stamp set with a co-ordinating die set.


I'm looking forward to playing with this set some more.




Here is how it all came together...


These are the colours I used:
Gray Granite
Granny Apple Green
Gorgeous Grape
Bermuda Bay

{Stamping Sunday Bloghop - Gingham Gala Suite}


Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop! 


The first one of 2019, I'm looking forward to sharing some inspiration using products from the 
Gingham Gala Suite

It's a beautiful spring coloured suite, and great for any lovers of butterflies... ahem like me.  I cannot resist them!  Especially when the designs are so intricate.


At the Stampin Sunday Blog Hop we've decided to slightly change what we present to you.  We recognise that some of you may be at the beginning of your crafting journey and have limited supplies, and the rest of you could be anywhere from a beginner to a super avid crafter, with lots and lots of supplies.  To make sure we inspire all of you we are creating 3 projects from the same suite.

Here is my first one, only stamping and 3 inkpads.


The second one requires the use of the co-ordinating butterfly punch and some dimensionals.


And the 3rd one requires all the previously used, with some extra products and a lot more time.



 


Here is a video tutorial with a few tips.


Do have a look at the other wonderful inspiration from this international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday - Butterfly Gala and Artisan Textures}

Hi there, so if you are wondering what happened to last week's One Sheet Wonder Wednesday... I have a confession.

I got to the end of last Wednesday and realised I wasn't prepared enough to do a video and blog, so I cheated a bit.  I went live on my YouTube channel and made these...





If you would like to see the process you can watch it here...


For this week's One Sheet Wonder I used the gorgeous Butterfly Gala and Artisan Textures.
These are the colours I used.


I cut my sheet into 4 and created some cards, I'll probably stamp some sentiments on later.

Here is the video...


and these are how the cards turned out.
