Celebrate today: – seeing double bunnies :)

More fun with this little Bunny stamp.

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 to let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.

A handmade gift is priceless and these beautiful little butterfly brooches will impress and delight friends and family.

 

Papillon Potpourri brooches

Delight your friends with these beautiful little brooches.

 

I made these little brooches for some friends recently and I was so pleased to see their delighted reaction to receiving them.

It must be stated that the picture does not do them justice.

So easy to do.

Simply stamp, colour, then glaze with about 5 coats of Crystal Effects.

I left one full day between each coat just to be sure it was fully hardened.

“to be sure to be sure” as they would say over here

Try different techniques for your butterflies.

I stamped one with Papillon Potpourri.

Another I simply punched butterfly out of Very Vanilla Cardstock and glazed.

And another I punched from Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped over with Hopeful Thoughts – 129582.

This little stamp set is a MUST HAVE for all creative crafters and I know you will LOVE making these little butterflies.

Hi Stampers!

 

Today I wanted to show you this beautiful card we made at our craft class last night. It is a very simple technique that results in a ‘braided’ edge.  Once I’ve got my head around video blogging I will post a video tutorial on it, so watch this space.

 

Basically…….

stamp front and reverse of folded card using the ‘Dictionary’ stamp (make sure to take note of which end of ‘writing’ is up and which is down)

overstamp that with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp.

stamp inside card with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp to get the stamped effect on the folded down parts of the ‘braid’

use braid template to cut braid along spine – cut off the very bottom slice of braid (carefully as this will then be restuck to top)

fold down and tuck in every other slice of braid to create the braid effect. take your little cut off piece and glue to the top section and tuck in.

use ‘Tag Topper Punch’ to create your topper – layered with ‘Strawberry Slush and Crumb Cake’ card stock. ‘Crumb Cake layer needs to be stamped with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.

stamp ‘Perfect Blend’ coffee cup image on to very vanilla card stock twice – 1 for ‘Tag Topper’ and 1 to overstamp the label with Dictionary’ stamp. cut this out and adhere to cup image.

decorate with ‘Strawberry Slush Bakers Twine’, Strawberry Slush Itty Bitty Accents’ punched pieces and ‘Rhinestone Basic Jewels’ and you have one gorgeous little card. (picture doesn’t do it justice, believe me)

 

Any questions or comments, I would LOVE to hear from you. 🙂

So don’t forget to [ FOLLOW ] me before you leave today.

*****

As you have no doubt guessed, Vivid Vases is the Feature Stamp this month and I just love it!

I had a play around with it earlier this morning and thought I would go for ‘less is more’ this time. What do you think?

I haven’t put any colour on the flowers as I quite like the clean look of the line art however I did glitz it up a bit with my favourite Crystal Effects.

I’ve attached a quick brief if you would like detail on dimensions and products.

Good Afternoon All,

What a time I’ve had of it today. Technology (in particular my laptop and all matters connected to it) is conspiring to drive me insane!  Hopefully I will get it all resolved in the next few days and I will be able to post more regularly without constant technical issues.

The gorgeous little Vivid Vases Stamp is surprisingly versatile. I’ve only recently started using it and featured it at a recent Project Class and this was a hit with my class members.

The project featured today is a little card that I had noticed on Pinterest so credit for this clever little design goes to Heidi Baks.

I hope you like it. Do leave me some feedback or questions.

I’ve attached a quick brief for reference.
