Stampin Up's " A Good Man " Card

Hello and Welcome,

Today's card is a CASE card from the Stampin Up's Annual Catalogue on page 147. As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew it was a MUST HAVE!!! I do struggle with Masculine cards, and this stamp set can be used for so many occasions.

With so many things to point out on this card, I first want your eyes to go to the distressed edges of the Brick and Mortar matting. This rough edge on bricks is so Masculine.

The water - coloured  image softens the card, but adding in the corked embellishment adds a little more man to the card, this then creates the card that is a mixture of soft and masculine.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today, I would love to hear what you thought of the card.

I hope you come back soon for a little crafty inspiration!

Until Next Time!!

Let's Get Hopping # 23

cover photo, Image may contain: text

Hello and Welcome,

This month the Let's Get Hopping group are at it again, and the theme is "Use up that DSP". Let's face it all crafters are hoarders of pretty things, and DSP is one thing I want to keep for a special occasion. SO this theme is perfect.

If you have hopped over from my friend Nina McMillan's blog, thank you for visiting!

Christmas is my favourite Holiday, and I love to create little gifts for people that are inexpensive but lets them know I am thinking of them and appreciate them!

Merry Moments DSP has been retired for a long time, but I do hoard paper!!!

These cute little boxes measure 4 1/2 x 2 x 3/4"

Rustic Retreat is a New Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue. This stamp set is very versatile as it can be used for Masculine, Christmas, Nature and so much more. 

Each box is made with a 6 x 6" piece of DSP, and are so quick and easy to make, which makes them a perfect gift for all those people in your life that you would like to let them know you appreciate them!

Thank you so much for hopping over to my blog, next up on the hop is the very talented Shelly Wadge, please click link below.

Please feel free to leave me a comment.

Hope you have a Wonderful Day!

Stampin Up " Piece Of Cake " Wedding Card

 Hello and Welcome,

Today's card is a CASE card from the Stampin Up's Annual Catalogue on page 64. This stamp set and punch was available in our last catalogue, and I am so happy to have it carry over. It is great for Weddings, Birthday's, really any celebration - it's a CAKE!!!!

This is such an elegant card, that makes the most perfect Wedding card!

The cake is coloured with Stampin Blends, and it is very soft, but the background has a little punch.
The embossed piece is sponged with White ink, and then spritzed with the gorgeous shimmer paint, creating a very sparkly background. 


Thanks so much for popping in today, I hope you have enjoyed today's card.

Until next time!

Stampin Up's " Bloom & Grow " Bundle Card

Hello and Welcome,

Today's card is a CASE card from the Stampin Up's Annual Catalogue on page 4. Although you can see the bundle and more samples on page 10 and 130 - 131.

The Crackle Paint Background stamp totally makes the card, in my opinion. It makes it look aged, elegant, and so precious. With the pop of colour in the flowers, the card is tranformed.

One thing that doesn't show up as well in the photos is the shimmer from the Wink Of Stella on the flowers, giving that extra bit of special.

Thanks so much for popping by today, I hope you have enjoyed today's card, feel free to leave me a comment!
