Blue Shoes with Stampin UP Guy Greetings

Hey guys,


So are you loving the other cards in this series of cards.  I have been having great fun using the Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin Up.  Today’s card is Blue Shoes and has been made using the Stampin Up Guy Greetings stamp set.

I have changed the colours again and this time have used pool party.  I used the gorgeous large dots embossing folder to create the background.  Isn’t this just too cute.

The base of my card is very vanilla and I have stamped the shoes directly onto the inside of the card.  The front was matted and layered.  The shoes were stamped in a line using my Stampa -ma – jig.  This is a great tool for being able to line up stamped images and get them exactly where I need them to be.

I also used it put the sentiment onto the top of the shoes.

The little banner sentiment was stamped and then I used the snips to cut the banner ends into it.  The edges of the matting and layering have been distressed with the same colour ink to give definition to the card.

This would make a great birthday card for the fashionista male in your household.

Righty Tighty – Guy Greetings from Stampin Up

Hello lovelies.

Righty Tighty GUY GREETINGS from Stampin Up – Day 3,

The gorgeous Guy Greetings from Stampin Up has really been a boost to my stamp sets.  I adore all the images and the great male sentiments.  This set has really inspired me to get creative and I hope that you guys are finding my creations inspiring.

As a teenager when I was learning to drive my Dad showed me how to change the wheel on my car.  I remember him telling an easy way to undo the nuts, “Rightly Tighty, Lefty Loosy!!”  It stuck with me for years and works for DIY as well as car maintenance.

Today’s card is the card I created for my Dad because this saying was so apt.

Using the gorgeous Typeset DSP – (Designer Series Paper) I created a gorgeous front to my card.  I sponged the edges of my DSP to a very vintage look to my card.  I loved the polaroid frame that I created for my card on Day 1, so I decided to use it again today.  First I stamped the main image and then on a second piece of cardstock I cut out the middle of the cardstock using the Square Framelits.   I raised the polaroid frame using frailest.  The sentiment was stamped onto a rectangle of cardstock, and then distressed before creating the banner end with my 1″ square punch.  I pleated some chevron ribbon down the front of the card and attached my banner on top of it.

Lastly I made a matching envelope from the same DSP stack.

Beautiful Bunch – 4 ways with this gorgeous Stampin Up stamp

In December, amongst the Christmas madness I ran a class for my girls that was completely non-christmas.

We decided upon the #BeautifulBunch stamp set and the girls wanted some different folds.

So here’s what I came up with.

 This is a gatefold card.

Love this fold.  It zigzags and is super cute

 This is an easel card thats sits on the edge of a shelf

 and lastly a simple card with a tag on it.
We used a variety of colours.  Sorry the lighting was a bit rubbish the day these were taken.

#Beautiful Bunch gets journaled ……

Hi everyone.

I hope that you are all well.  


Firstly can I say how lovely it was to meet so many of you at Bridgwater and what a great day was had.  My stand was positioned just perfectly and it was lovely to have so many of you join in the make and takes.  
It was lovely chatting with you all.  


On Saturday I hosted a private class for 7 ladies at my home.  We used the gorgeous #White Christmas stamp set and created some lovely cards.  Thank you once again for booking the class and I am looking forward to next time.


Whilst getting everything ready for the Craft fayres I got out one of my favourite stamp sets and set to work.  I actually created 10 journals, all in different colours.  And each had a greetings card made to match.
I loved doing these and used embossing, and stamping and punching and ribbon and sparkle and so much more.  Great fun to do.

In this example I have used the lovely Bermuda Bay.  I have matted cardstock and DSP from the DSP Stack, punched out a heart border, added a doily and then my flower

Here’s a close up …… I have added glitter to the button, after colouring it with my blendies.
