Trio of Brusho cards

We had another play with the Brushos in the class recently creating a A5 one sheet wonder and used all the pieces to create the following 3 cards.

We used a mixture of the yellow, blue and green colour combination for the background. 

Three flowers from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set were heat embossed with white embossing powder and coloured in with the aqua painters and some excess ink left from the Brushos


We used the branches from the petal pair textured embossing folders and layered a strip of the Brusho background over the top and die cut a butterfly

The background was embossed with the scattered sequins dynamic textured impressions embossing folder which resembles bubbles in the sea. The mermaid was stamped in versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut out. The plants were die cut in island indigo and emerald envy

petal palette

I'm sharing a Petal Palette card with you today.

The Petal Palette Bundle from Stampin Up is from the Petal Passion suite in the current Spring/Summer catalogue. There are 2 full sets with 15 co-ordinating stamps and the added bonus of framelit dies.Also in the suite is the Petal Pair textured impressions embossing folders, which you can create projects with beautifully embossed petals and branches.This set is great for any kind of cards or embellishment.

I chose a colour combination of pink pirouette, basic grey and whisper white

On this card I used the branches embossing folder from the set of two

All the elements were stamped, die cut and assembled onto a die cut stitched shaped oval and attached to the card with dimensionals. The flowers were coloured in with stamp write markers. To finish the card a smoky slate ribbon bow was added with a glue dot to the side

More Happy wishes

Some more very quick and easy Happy Wishes cards created using the Stamperatus!!

The Happy birthday sentiments were placed on the stamperatus, one piece of white card was stamped with the Bermuda Bay ink and another piece of Bermuda Bay card was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Both the Bermuda Bay and Whisper white cards were cut in half horizontally creating four pieces and then placed together with the opposite piece and layered onto some basic black card as shown below.

The Happy Wishes stamp set is a Level 2 Sale-a-bration rewardwhen spending £90. You can view the other sale-a-bration items HERE

Shutter card

Welcome to my blog, I am sharing a  Fancy Folds card today card the Gatefold Shutter Card.

I have seen these cards many times before and never made one, so I decided to try one myself. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is not as hard as it looks! and it created a WOW factor when I showed the class what we were all making

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mothering Sunday to all you lovely mums especially to my own fabulous Mum. Thank you for all your love and support over the years and hope you have had a great day

I have had a lovely weekend and have been very spoiled by my two beautiful daughters. On Saturday afternoon I was treated to a fabulous afternoon tea with sandwiches, trio of sweets, cakes, glass of bubbly and abundance of tea and today my youngest daughter cooked us all a fantastic home cooked sunday lunch with all the trimmings! She also made one of our favourite puddings Grandma used to make for us: chocolate sponge with oranges and custard (yummy)

   I am now having a relaxing evening watching the Dancing on Ice final and Call the Midwife!
