Stamp With Us Recipe Challenge

This is a great fairly new challenge blog which features Stampin Up Products, this weeks challenge was a recipe of 2 card stock and 4 papers and no other embellishments. I used the Playful petals stamp set, almost amethyst and so saffron card and the Tea Party designer series papers 4 patterns.

It reminds me of my Mums kitchen which is a nice memory cos she has been gone for a few years now and a bit of nostalgia now and then never hurt anyone

Stamp With Us Weekly Challenge - Congratulations

Have you ever had one of those days??? This is my third attempt at a congratulations card for this challenge. All these gorgeous stamps and no mojo!!! What a nightmare!
Anyway this one was going to be scrapped and then I started doodling etc and trying to cover up ink smudges and even though I am a less is more type person in the end it turned out reasonably well.

I used SU real red ink and cardstock, SU Doodle That stamp set and stazon and watercolours. The black gems are from my stash and the sentiment is from the Cheers and Wishes SU stamp set.

Hope you are having a great day and mine can only get better lol

Cute Card Thursdays - Quotations

I cant believe it has been 9 days since my last post. That is just beyond ridiculous!! Got some new Stampin Up goodies in and there is a nice quote in one of the sets called 'By the Sea'. This card is very basic just using SU choclate chip, natural and bashful blue card stock, choc chip ink and the stamp is coloured in with a watercolour crayon. I was copying an idea I saw in the SU catalogue to just colour in the girls dress. Hope you like it and thanks for dropping by.
