Frosted sequins ............

Morning Crunchies.

As promised today I have day 4 of the Letterpress week to show you.

Today is a very clean and simple card, but I think its really beautiful.

I have used the frame from the Letterpress set and stamped it in Night of Navy.  I have stamped the sentiment in Pool Part.  Don't you love the contrast.

I have added frosted sequins to the frame artwork to give it some sparkle.

The Base of the card is Night of Navy, with a Pool Party matt and then the whisper white stamped layer.

Tomorrow I will be showing you the last of my five designs.

But don't panic, theres lots more inspiration coming up.

Big hugs

Letterpress just for you ............... and new

Morning Crunchies.  How are you all?

Today is wet in Somerset, but I am staying in the craft room and keeping warm and dry.  

In today's Blog:
  • Letterpress Day 3 - Just for you
  • Weekly Deals

So as promised all week I am blogging about a recent class I did.  It was a huge success and all my ladies loved it.  I am running a second class of this later this week.

Here's the third card in the set using the lovely Letterpress Stamp Set. 

To start with I added ribbon to my first matt layer and adhered behind - so there are no horrid ends showing.  Added a ribbon bow in matching lost lagoon.  Then I matted and layered the whisper white cardstock,  and then a lost lagoon layer before adding a final white layer.  The top layer has been stamped with Pear pizzazz, and Pool Party.  I then stamped and punched the sentiment - again from the Letterpress set.  

I will be making this card in different colours as it so cute. I saw a similar design on Pinterest by Think Pink, but I have changed it up a bit.  Love it.

Look at all the lovely goodies.  Ribbon, washi tape and so so much more.  Not got these lovely Word Bubble Framelits. They are so awesome to use.  Remember this one.

The sentiments in these were cut with those framelits.  A must for great layering.  

Don't forget all these discounted prices are only available for 1 week.  So hurry and get yours before the price goes back up.

See you tomorrow.

Thanks again to everyone that continues to order both in person and on-line.  Your continued support means so much.

Snowflakes get flippy

Morning Crunchies, 

Hope today finds you all well and with time to get crafty.

Did you manage to take in all the news I shared in yesterday's post.  So much going on at the moment.

If you missed it here is the link:  Letterpress Day

So today I wanted to show you another card using the lovely letterpress stamp set.

I have combined it with the Snowflake Flip Die

And some of the gorgeous All is Calm washi tape

The lovely snowflake and tree shapes are also included in the Snowflake Flip Thinlets Die. 

The card base is lost lagoon and I have used lost lagoon ink to stamp the large snowflake from the Letterpress set on either side of the snowflake shape and then added the cut outs using dimensionals.

Lastly I have added washi tape down either edge and added a few snowflakes from the lovely frosted sequins pack

I also used both the stamps and the die to create the Menu card for my Table Display at the Stampin Up! European Convention.

On this one I cut twice with the die.

Isn't is just so cute.

Thanks for stopping by.  As always you comments are always appreciated.

Don't forget that today is the last day for this week's weekly Deals.  (They change tonight)

And also please don't miss out on that gorgeous stars kit.  So simple yet so stunning.

Morning Crunchies

How are you all today?  Ive had a very busy weekend, a great class on Saturday and then meeting a customer yesterday for a commissioned order.

The kids are on half term this week, such a shame its grey and dull here in Somerset.

Many of you have commented on Facebook or on my blog about the lovely table setting that I did for Convention.  Thank you.

The basis of the setting was the lovely Letterpress stamp set.  I loved this stamp set from the moment I saw it in the autumn/winter catalogue.  Its so clean and simple yet timelessly elegant.

So this week I will be featuring five cards that have used this gorgeous set.

In today's post:

  • Clearance Rack
  • Many Merry Stars and Autumn/Winter Supplement
  • Letterpress Day 1

But first some news:

Places to check ............. have you checked the Clearance Rack lately.  There are some truly awesome deals there .......... lots of Halloween and Christmas stock.  Gorgeous papers, cardstock and much much more.  Some lovely kits from last year's Autumn/Winter supplement.  So if you missed them last year why not grab them this year.

But hurry these things never stay for very long and once they've gone thats it.


So grab your coffee and go have a browse.

And even more exciting than that ..............

We have a new Autumn/winter Supplement.  And there are just so many divine and gorgeous projects featured in it.  I can't wait to show you.  Super super cute.

Here's the link to the supplement.

Isn't that Star just super super cute.  I love it so much.  Its from the Many Merry Stars Kit.  You get 26 Stars in Total for just £24.95.  All cut and ready for you to assemble.  The kit includes everything you need to decorate them too.  

But please hurry.  Because once this kit is sold out they are not producing any more. 

Anyway on to today's card

Letterpress Day 1

I love the clean and simple lines of this set and love the colours.  Today I have used Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party.

I have matted and layered Lost lagoon, Whisper white and some All is Calm DSP.

I have also created my own DSP by using the snowflake stamps in all three colours.  This piece is behind the DSP.

The sentiment is in a lovely font and to finish off I added some beautiful sparkly sequins.  I loathe sequins normally but I have to say I have been well and truly won over with this box of beauties from Stampin UP!

Hope you like it.
