Sometimes it's all about the dies - Foliage Framelits

Have you ever brought just the stamp sets or just the framelits? Have you wondered if people even do that? Well I didn't for this set, but I really could have done, because the dies are absolutely amazing on their own.

Don't get me wrong, I love the stamp set too, but the different leaves, branches and sprigs in the Foliage Framelits are to die for and this card really celebrates them all.

Oh and just quietly, I'm head over heels for this sentiment banner stamp and die. It's a gorgeous shape and size if you ask me.

The colour combination was completely inspired by the colours in the Share Wat You Love designer series paper. I probable would never have put the four colour together, but they absolutely work.

My girls really did love making this card in class and I think out of the three designs we did, this was agreed to be everyone's favourite. Plus, how could I have had this cute Petal Pairs embossing folder for almost a year and only just used it!?!?!? And the other one in the set is just as stunning. That will be finding itself on a card very soon too!

Happy Crafting,

Watercolours in Cornwall - By the Bay Sale-a-Bration

I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks the By the Bay stamp set reminds them of the houses and coastlines on the Cornish coast in the England. It brings to mind, long sunny days, eating strawberries and ice cream. I spent lots of time in Cornwall and really hope to take the children there when we go back to visit again soon.

The pretty little house in this set, just called to me to water colour it and I wanted to use this card for a man or a women so I left the colours pretty neutral for that reason.

I wanted to keep this card as simple as possible and I thought the little sentiment was just perfect and all I needed to add to finish it off.

So many of the Sale-a-Bration goodies are selling out so don't hesitate, place an order and grab your favorites today!

Top Tip Tuesday - Glitter Enamel Dots

It's Tuesday and I thought I'd share a top tip with you all today.

I love taking the stickiness away from stickers and in this case, our gorgeous Glitter Enamel Dots. It means I can add a dimensional to them to turn a flat sticker into a raised sentiment or even put them into a shaker card, like I did with the dots!

 This suite, 'How Sweet it is', is absolutely beautiful and perfect for kids birthday cards. I know I'll be making a few extra cards with this kit for all the upcoming parties my three will be heading to this year!

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - Butterfly Gala

It's been a while since I joined a Blog Hop and I have been meaning to join in with Kylie Bertucci's for ages. Well today is the day. There are quite a few blogs on this hop, so whether you hopped along from one of the other talented demos are one of my regulars, Hello and thank you for popping by!

So today I wanted to share a really quick and easy card using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the gorgeous coordinating designer series paper that is actually a Sale-a-Bration Freebie:

What a cute card and it is just so easy!! I cut a card front from the Botanical Butterflies patterned paper and using  my Blends, I very roughly just added colour to all the butterflies. I pretty much broke every rule in when it came to colouring in those gorgeous butterflies. I used my brush end, I coloured outside the lines and I didn't even try to blend the two colours. Just goes to show that sometimes you need to step outside of the box!

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and just popped it up on a couple of dimensionals. And that is all there is too it. Very quick, very simple and you can make about from one piece of paper. Now that's what I call easy!!

If you would to buy any of these gorgeous products and you live here in Australia and don't already have a demo, then I would love to help you with that. Just pop me an Email or head to my store !!
Thanks for "hopping" in and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop.
