{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Speciality Paper}

Hi there crafty friend, how is your weekend going?  The sun has started to show itself a bit more and we were able to enjoy a sunny spring walk this afternoon (Saturday).

In other news, we have moved house since the last hop, and work has begun on a garden office/studio for my business. Looking forward to being able to show you pictures.

So todays focus on

is Speciality Papers by Stampin' Up!

Basically any paper that has shiny bits on it, can't resist a bit of shiny!

This month I have decided to make 3 cards.  The first one is this


Can you believe that all the tools I used where a pair of scissors, the Take Your Pick tool (I forgot the name of it on my video... doh!) and the Stamping Mat.

The leaves where cut from this paper...


and the butterfly was hand cut from the lighter pink foil card.  The detail on the butterfly was created with the pointy end of the pick tool and if you look closely you can see swirls of tiny holes coming from the leaves.


The next card I have stepped it up a bit more with the use of some flower punches 
Can.not.live.without.flower.punches! They are so handy for creating embellishments and detail AND hiding an ink blob. 



The flowers were cut using the Small Bloom Punch and shaped with the ball tool attachment of the Take Your Pick tool, please watch the video for how I did this.


Then finally... the shiniest card ever! Well, I tried to tame the shiny with some Stazon ink and embossing.


Couldn't resist using the tiny papers that were strewn across my desk from using the Confetti Flowers Border punch.


Here is the video tutorial, apologies for the lighting and forgetting names.


Please take a look at the other hoppers and their wonderful projects, and see you again next month!

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Gilding Flakes

Happy Sunday everyone, thank you for popping by to see what I'm up to with the Gilding Flakes today.


This blog post is part of a hop, so please check out the other bloggers for some more Gilding Flake ideas.

I have made 3 super simple cards using 2 ways of adhering the flakes.

Here is a card with the flakes used on the scallop circle and butterfly.

The first way is by using some adhesive sheets, and yes they are available in the current catalogue.  They are really easy to use.  Choose the card or paper (it could be a scrappy piece as it's going to be covered up), then cut a piece of adhesive sheet to the size you need, remove the backing and apply to it.  Cut the shape you want from the card/paper, then remove the 2nd backing sheet and apply the flakes to it.



For htese cards I used the Stampin' Up! Tear and Tape to create a sticky border and then burnished the flakes over it.  Then to create the centre I cu t out a piece of card stock that I had stuck some adhesive sheet to.


Here is the video tutorial

{HAPPY NEW YEAR and some Daisy cards from a stamped One Sheet Wonder}

Happy New Year!

Inspite of the challenges of 2020, my heart is full of gratitude for continued sustenance, friendships old and new, family and their development and Hope for the future.  I'm hugely aware of the deeper challenges and sorrows that have and continue to face each day.  Praying you will know peace and strength if this is you.

The next few weeks are likely to become quite busy for me as we move home (locally).  I'll endeavour to keep you informed of Stampin' Up news.  Please be aware that other platforms tend to get updated sooner than this, so follow my channel on YouTube here and my page on Facebook here.

In a few days there will be a new catalogue to feast your eyes on. Be aware that because of recent Covid restrictions there are delays.  Do place orders, however don't stalk your UPS delivery person to early!

Here are some cards I really enjoyed making last year.

Love this colour combo, the warm tones of the Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider with the cool blue of Coastal Cabana make a harmonious palette.  

The other winning combination is the stamp sets, Beautiful Friendship and All Things Fabulous look beautiful together.

Here is how I stamped the paper


To see how I made them here is the video
