Pirate punch art

Hello, and happy 7th June 2015. Today I signed up to Stampin' Up! once more... so it is a momentous occasion. Mostly because there a big box of crafting stash soon to be heading my way... so more crafting and blog posts here hopefully.

Today I'm sharing a cute little card made with one of my favourite punches... fortunately it is still available in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue, and I can understand why, it's just so versatile.

Still my favourite punch - the owl punch...

Frame anything

In this case it's flowers, but the on film framelits from Stampin' Up! can be used to frame just about anything...

You're having a giraffe

Today I have part of a commission to share with you, and it was certainly a challenging one to make 10 of these cards!

At one point I actually felt like I had bitten off more than I could chew, after punching out yet another giraffe 'horn' and set of nostrils. 

I was really pleased when they were finished and think they came out ok in the end :).

Fiddly dies for a birthday

I really like using my Big Shot for cutting out and embossing card making bits and bobs. The die I've used for today's card comes from the Hello You thinlits die from Stampin' Up! which I found very fiddly to use until I had tried it a few times.

Lotus Blossom card ideas

I absolutely love the Lotus Blossom stamp set from Stampin' Up!, although I did find it a little fiddly to work out the colour combo's and deal with stamping off the ink for some of the images.

This 3 layered stamp can be inked in so many colours to create lovely flowers - I stuck with Rose Red and Pink Pirouette, although they are retired colours, they still look great.

Mothers Day 2015

Honestly, I've been rubbish at keeping my craft blog up to date!

Today, I was reminded to share a card with you... as it's Mothers Day...

I've used the Circle Card thinlits die from Stampin' Up! for the base, cut from Crumbcake card and then featured the Beautiful Butterflies dies.

Little houses

A quick card with little houses for a new home. I went with Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White colours, but any combination will work...

2015 Valentines

So although I don't really celebrate Valentines Day, I couldn't resist making a card with my reasonably new Thinlits Circle Card for from Stampin' Up!

I love the little die cuts that feature with the main card template...

I've used a couple of Stampin' Up! Stamp sets too... Here the opened card..

Happy Heart Day!

Finally finished my Travel Smash book

Ok, so I have been rubbish at regularly posting here so far this year. Mainly just haven't had a chance to get the craft stash out much, and have been busy finishing my Travel Smash book :).

I'm so excited that it's virtually complete, subject to a couple of  photos that I need to get printed and add.

It was almost becoming too big to complete, but thankfully I didn't have to rebind or take any pages out.

Here's one of the last pages from my recent trip to Cuba in December...

So, although I have shared quite a few of my smash pages previously, there appear to be plenty that I haven't posted pictures. Therefore I'll be spreading them out over the next few posts in case you want to bookmark my blog here or facebook page and follow along for the next few days.

If you want to check back through my posts for previous posts I've tagged them with '1 travel smash'.

I'd love to hear what you think?
