Quick Contempo Christmas

Another quick card using the gorgeous contempo Christmas set, the tree was stamped in real red, and has loads of dazzling diamonds on it, it looks much prettier in real life! The sentiment was stamped in black ink, cut out using  the modern label punch and mounded with 3d pads.
Apologies for not posting yesterday, it was one of those days where - life got in the way. xx

As promised more quick Christmas cards, which literally take a few minutes each to make.
The first card, the decoration was stamped in versamark, then red ink, I then applied heat and stick, them loads of dazzling diamonds.  The bottom two cards were made using the same layout, just without the bling, they still look really effective.  For the green one I used old olive ink.

Back with a bang!

Sorry for the lack of blogging recently we have all been really poorly in our house with one thing and another- just as we get over one thing, it has been something else and it felt like it was never going to end.  I did no crafting for ages, but have been making up for it over the last few days.  I have an exciting open day coming up soon, which I will be back to blog about later (I could burst with excitement).

Anyways today's card is made using the new in colours Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, lucky limeade, pool party and wisteria wonder.  I used stamp set Pennant Parade (Pg 37) which is so versatile, and the coordinating punch petite pennants builder.  The cute bird stamp is from the Aviary set - which is sooooooooooo cute.
The little flowers between the bunting is a bitty punch, and rhinestones were added to the middle.

The happy couple

Here is a card I made for a friend who recently got married, then I could not help but make another in a different colour.  So quick easy and simple, would also make a great wedding invitation.
Its nice and simple, a white card base embossed with Manhattan Flower embossing folder, with a creamy white flower cut out using Fun Flowers die.  The centre was covered in diamond glaze and dazzling diamonds.  A little butterfly from my favourite embosslit die Beautiful Wings was added, the sentiment Mr & Mrs (which has not come out that great in the pic was added) is from the Tiny Tags stamp set.
I used blushing bride for the pink one and pool party for the blue one.

I Heart hearts

Here is a card I spent far to long thinking about what to do!  It is based on this weeks theme at Less is more where the theme is a heart.  Initially it sounds simple, but I did to much thinking!!! lol, anyway, in a moment of not thinking and playing here is what I came up with. 
All the components are from Stampin Up, the card base is very vanilla, the background pink colour is pink pirouette, and the heart image is stamped in rose red as is the sentiment.  The heart image has been embossed with clear embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stampin Up swaps

Yesterday I went along to Jo Dumbletons training in Dorset, it was brilliant.  Jo is lovely in so many ways, and her training was fantastic, and the cakes were just yummy. 
I had a great time, met lots of lovely people, and learnt loads.
Part of the day was to make swaps, to swap with other demos. 
Here is what I made!  Sorry about the poor quality pics, they were taken Saturday night in poor lighting, and before I forgot!  Whoops..

ILWS Blog Hop

Hope you are enjoying looking through the new Stampin Up catalogue, if your her the chances are you have arrived from Emma's blog.

The blog hop is to showcase new items from the catalogue.  I decided to use POOL PARTY one of the new in colours, I love it, it is such a fresh clean colour.  If I had not been ill this week, I would have made something else using one of the new stamp sets, but hay ho.

I was feeling a bit christmassy when I made these, probably had something to do with the freezing weather we had a few days ago! lol
I used the delightful decorations set and punch, heat and stick and dazzling diamonds. 

Thanks for stopping by, you will now go onto Carolyn's blog.

Less is more & a sneek peek

Hello, sorry I have been a very bad blogger this week, I have had the flu, and my little girl has also been quite poorly!  I made this first card on Sunday for the Less is more challenge, I don't know if it counts, as the flower has a stem, which is outside the format, but as I saw some other truly amazing creations with bits hanging down, I could not resist trying! lol

The stamp is from one of Stampin Ups new hostess sets called Simply Soft, this is a gorgeous two step stampin set.  I have also used the new in colours lucky limeade and island indigo, the sentiment is from the trendy trees set.  I coloured the image with a blender pen, and used the named in colour ink pads. I could not resist adding some dazzling diamonds to finish.

The new catalogue is released tomorrow, and is packed full of loveliness, if you would like something from it, please get in touch. x

If it sparkles I have to have it.  I made this card a few weeks ago for the Charisma DT challenge, when the theme was glitter.  There was only one option.  Stampin Up! sparkling glitter - its so yummy when used with heat and stick.  Not sure the photo does it much justice, as it is sooooooooo sparkly in real life.
It's freezing here today, definitely think autumn has arrived! Boo!!!!

ILWS last chance blog hop Cath Kidston style

Well I am the last stop on the mega 25 long blog hop, so if you have made it here well done.
For the last chance blog hop, I used baby blossoms stamp set, which is in the current mini catalogue, along with the sentiment which is from the hostess set called something to celebrate.   I love the baby blossoms set as it has a Cath Kidston style to it, and you can make the colours in any colour combo that takes your fancy...   
I used rose red, pink pirouette and certainly celery.  The stamp set is a two step stamp set, to get the stamps in the correct place I used my stamp am a jig.  The butterflies are beautiful wings embosslit.
I really enjoyed making these bits and pieces, and will use it loads in the future.
Thanks for joining us in the blog hop, I hope you enjoyed it. xxx

I would like to enter this card and box's into the Simply Stampin Challenge where the theme is butterflies.

Last Charisma DT challenge for me!

It's a sad day today, as it's my last week as a DT member at Charisma.  I would like to thank Carlyann who gave me the oppertunity to be a part of such a great team, I have made some lovely friends, and met some very talented ladies, and spent hours drooling over some amazing creations.

This week the them is:

Inspired by a song

I really wanted to use my new Stampin Up owl punch, so I looked on you tube for some insperation that would fit the theme.  I came up with Oasis, Songbird, and when I actually thought about it, it was quite obvious, I think I was making it harder than it need be.

I made the card for my friend Kat, it is an acceptance to her twin boys christening later this month.  I don't have an acceptance stamp at the mo, so I thought I would say thank you for the invite instead.

To make this card I used the following materials:
Chocolate chip old olive & whisper white card stock, DSP brights, two step owl punch, little leaves die and curly cute sentiments.

I am a brand new SU demo, and part of a fantastic team, if you would like any of the items shown in this card, please get in touch, as I can order them for you.

Sally. xxx

I will be back later to link it to some challenges. x
