{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday - Baby Wipe Technique}

Hi everyone!
Happy Wednesday.  We've been enjoying some lovely weather here in Mid Wales, apparently reaching record temperatures.  My children are on their half term holiday, and we're looking forward to a cinema trip today.

I've used this technique several times, and each time I use it I love it.  It does require having some of the Reinkers that Stampin' Up! sell to refresh their ink pads.

When I filmed this I wanted to get the most out of the custom ink pad I had made.  So to start off with I stamped 3 sheets of A4 , then another one.  Then... I then went on to create several more individual cards. In total I finished up with 20 cards, I did add a few drops of extra colour towards the end.

The stamp sets used are
Bloom by Bloom
Waterfront
Painted Glass

Here are the ones made from the one sheet wonders.






These are the cards I stamped, I have deliberately left the circle unstamped until I know who I'm giving this too and for what occasion. 



I loved how these designed teamed up so well with the dragonfly die cut.








Here is the video tutorial, enjoy!

I used the Beautiful Bouquet and Mistletoe Season stamp set and stamped onto a 12 x 12 piece of Very Vanilla card stock.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Happiness Blooms}

Welcome, welcome, welcome!


Thank you for popping to my blog from the lovely Yvonne.
It's the Sunday blog hop and we have a wonderful selection of cards and projects using the Happiness Blooms Suite.


It's packed full of bright colours and retro floral styling.

Here are 3 approaches with various elements of the suites.  The first is a set of 3 small cards - these were really simple to make, only requiring the Memories and More pack that accompanies the suite, a trimmer , card and some adhesive. 



The second project is this bright and fun card highlighting one of the little floral punches.



The third project is stepped up a bit further. I fussy cut some of the leaf stamps so they could flow from the focal point.






To see how I put the cards together, please have a look at my video here.

{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday - Tropical Chic and Perennial Birthday}

Phew, getting in here by the skin of my teeth.  I've had a busy few days, and although I managed to have this video filmed and edited, I'm just getting round to posting it!

Here are the cards


I decided to do a one sheet wonder that could be turned into 4 cards, they've been left blank for now, but has areas I could add a sentiment to if needed.

{Lovely Lattice with easy water colour effect}

I love techniques that are quick and easy, but also have an element of the unexpected.

I discovered it a while ago, and love to try it on floral stamps.

This stamp set is FREE with a £45 order.




There have been some new additions to the Saleabration choices, for a £45 spend they are a stamp set or embossing folder.



With a £90 spend it's a stamp set AND a set of coordinating papers.  The florals are so pretty, and even more good news, in March there will be a die set available to purchase that matches the stamp set.

{Stamping Chinese New Year decorations}

On Tuesday we had a gathering of friends at our house to celebrate Chinese New Year.   I wanted to decorate the house a little so had ordered some paper lanterns.  Then I thought it would be nice to stamp some hangings that I could keep from year to year and add to.

Taking the popular octagon shape as a base, I choose some stamps that I thought would look good together, they included; Artistically Asian, Abstract Expressions, Timeless Textures and Beautiful Promenade.







I made them "live" on YouTube.  Just wanted to share something I found out recently, you can change the setting of the speed at which you watch videos.  Click on the settings "flower" and click on speed, from there you can choose a faster running speed.
