Cards for (old) Men!

Hello and Welcome,
I've made a card using the masking technique today.  This is a funny/cheeky card for a man.

My idea was to have a pile of old classic cars with the sentiment 'You're a Classic' inside which comes with the Geared Up Garage bundle.

This is a clean and simple card only using the Pool Party ink refill and some of your blender pens.  You can easily change your colours.  

If I was making this card again I would blend my Pool Party so it went above my red car image.

I have made a video to show how to mask your cars.

Buy the Geared Up Garage bundle from 3rd Jan - 31st March and choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop

Welcome to the last Ink. Stamp. Share blog hop of the year!  You may of hopped from Janey Backer's blog, or maybe started here.

We are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all around the world who get together once a month with a theme.

This month is a colour challenge with a New Year twist.

I've decided to make a desk calendar for my desk for this challenge, I've used all the colours except Berry Burst and I've added white.

I really enjoyed making this calendar, my background was made using the Baby Wipe Swipe method.  I used both blues and Garden Green for my swipe background.

I have taken the measurements for this calendar from Jan Brown after swapping with her Nov 2017 at Onstage.

A short video from me using the Baby Wipe Swipe technique.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Please hop along with everybody else Sandrine Jse is next!

Character Catcus Card Flowering Desert

I received this stamp set and immediately had to make a quick card!

I just love this cute set, it screams Cactus people to me!  Flowering Desert is available to buy from 3rd Jan 2019.  If you would like a copy of the Spring/Summer catalogue please e mail me and I can post one out to you!

It was a super easy card, stamping and sticking googly eyes on!
I've used note cards with Whisper White with a Basic Black layer behind.  Next time when I'm not in such a rush I would put some shadow under the cactus, but it still works in a clean & simple style.

I've made a short video, which was a bit rushed as was close to my son coming home from school!  I just had to create!

Hello and welcome to the last Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop of this year!
Hope you've enjoyed hopping along with me and the other Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators this last year.

Our theme this month is the new Occasions Catalogue, I was lucky enough to go to Onstage in Birmingham so was able to pre-order a couple of the new stamp sets.

I'm making a card for a man using the new Geared Up Garage stamp set.  This is a great suite, includes paper, ribbon, metal elements as well as the stamp and framelits.

Base card Tranquil Tide  27cm x 12.7cm
DSP                                 6.8cm x 12.3cm
