Moonlight ...........

Stampin Up! White Christmas

Morning everyone

Is not just for Christmas.

As you guys know I am loving this set and have been really enjoying playing with it.  Over the years I have taken a few moonlit walks in the snow and the trees take on a kind of ghostly appearance set against the snow and I have always wanted to recreate that.

So yesterday I got out my sponges, ink pads and stamps and set to work.

Here's the result.

Ingredients Used:

Stampin UP Whisper white cardstock
Stampin Up Night of Navy Ink
Stampin UP Pool Party Ink
Stampin Up Soft Sky Ink
Stampin UP Smoky Slate
Stayzon Tuxedo Black Ink
Stampin Up White Christmas Stamp Set (Trees)
Stampin Up Confetti Stars Punch

All of these ingredients can be found in my shop .... so hop over now and get started.  I would love to see your creations.

Don't forget the deals changed yesterday.  There is some really gorgeous papers, and lots more besides.

Have a lovely day.  Have something different to show you tomorrow.

I know the triangle punch will be falling into my basket.

So onto today's card.

I am still loving the White Christmas stamp set and but wanted my trees to have fairy lights.

After all whats a tree at Christmas without fairy lights.

So here's what I came up with.

Aren't these just so cute.

I have used the tree stamp, and then using the Stamp N Write markers have added the lights to the tree.

I have sponged the background with soft sky and then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

The matts and layers are Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  Lovely Christmas colours.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cherry cobbler meets confetti stars

Morning everyone.

Whilst teaching class last month, I had 5 minutes to have a play myself.

So I sat and had a coffee with the ladies and began punching out some stars using the new confetti stars punch.  This is a lovely big punch and is so easy to use and line up.

Anyway I loved the effect and wanted to use it on a card.

I saved the stars I punched out.

Using the Designer Series Paper Stack I matted a layer of Old Olive and then added the confetti punched piece.

I then added a further strip of the DSP and matching ribbon, topping off with a sentiment from the White Christmas Stamp Set.

Lastly I used my two-way glue pen to stick down the stars.

Simple, but very effective.

Am off to try this in whisper white and night of navy.  What colour combinations would you like to see.

To get your hands on this gorgeous punch, head on over to my store now.

I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Monday's invites ........

Morning everyone.

I hope today, being Monday, finds you all well and rested after a wonderful weekend.

We certainly had a mixed bag of weather.

I spent Saturday with the Somerset Care Association at their Craft Fayre in Wells.
It was a lovely day and I met some amazing people.

Next weekend I am at the Chestnut Buttons Christmas Fayre on Sunday 9th November.  This is just off J24 on the M5.  There is going to be lots going on and I am running small workshops all day.

So excited, about that one.

Anyway I also had the pleasure of being asked to make a few invites for a friend's birthday this month.

I did several samples to show her and this is one of them.

As you can see in this sample - I have decorated the envelope with the punched flowers as well.

I used the Apothecary Art stamp set to stamp the background and then cut both the top layer and the pink matt out using the matching framelits.

These two are in a bundle offer in the annual catalogue so are a great buy if you are building up your collection of dies.  This is such a versatile die.

The punched out flower is using the Itty Bitty Accents punch and then I have added a pearl in the middle.

I love the simplicity of this, but it is very girly and feminine at the same time.

Pop back again tomorrow when I will have more to show you.

Don't forget also to enter this fortnight's challenge over at Sunday Stamps
