Happy Bunny: – Screen card – the joys of spring

Hi Folks,

Welcome to another video blog.

Whilst this video uses a brayer technique, if you are completely new to ‘brayering’, I would advise you check out my Sheltering Tree video, which explains the technique in more depth. I will, when I get an opportunity, create a ‘How to ….’ page to cover techniques and tools. ūüôā

In the meantime, I just can’t stop playing with this little stamp. I love it so much!

Whilst the stamp is sold specifically as an Easter stamp it is easily adapted for many other occasions and I’ve enjoyed having a little play around with it. I hope you enjoy it too.

Drop me a quick comment and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.

Don’t forget to check out the video tutorial too! ūüôā

This little bunny is more versatile that you would think :)

Something Lacy: – Going to the Chapel !!!

Something Lacy: – Going to the Chapel !!!

Hi Folks,

I recently made this beautiful card and gift box for one of my lovely team when she promoted to a higher level. (so proud!!)¬†¬†¬† ūüôā

As I was so delighted with it, I thought I would share it quickly with you. I should point out however that design credit for this card goes to Andrea Tracey-Tucker .

 

The¬†Background Stamp¬†is Something Lacy from the current¬†Stampin’ Up! current Spring/Summer catalogue, in a section aptly titled; Going to the Chapel.

There are loads!!! of lovely ideas for weddings, to add a touch of charm; give them that ‘something old’ look and to dress up tags and cards with beautiful accents. You must check it out!!!

Also from the same catalogue is the hugely popular Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. 

And I again picked up on some old favourites of mine; the Chalk Talk stamp set, Chalk Talk Framelit Dies and the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and Bitty Banners Framelit Dies. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!

I hope you like it. Don’t forget to drop me a comment and if you’ve any queries, I would be happy to help. ūüôā

From The Herd

Hi folks,

I’ve just loved playing with this stamp set. These guys look so cute!

This was a quick 40th Birthday card for a male friend. I think he will like it. ūüôā

 

  • Brayer Sky Blue ink on Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamp main image (herd) on to another piece of Whisper White card stock and colour with Blendabilities (alternatively use Stampin’ Write Markers for this). Sponge a little Mossy Meadow ink to bottom, cut out main image and glue to previously brayered/coloured piece.
  • Stamp greeting from ‘Just Sayin’ stamp set and die cut ‘Word Bubbles’ on Big Shot and adhere to main image. Wrap with twine and mount to Basic Black card base using Dimensionals.
  • Adhere pre-made numbers from the Alphanumeric Mold/Simply Pressed Clay. (I make a stash of these whilst I’m sitting watching telly)
  • Decorate inside using Stampin’ Write Markers to pick out one of your favourite little critters and use appropriate sentiment.
  • Don’t forget to decorate your envelope. Always a lovely finishing touch.

If you have any questions or feedback, I would just LOVE to hear from you so please do drop me a comment or email.¬† Until next time ūüôā Lilian
