Glamper greetings

No I have not left this planet ..........I have been very busy working, the last 2 months have been manic here on the caravan site, but very enjoyable. The school hols are nearly over and the new arrivals have slowed down after the bank holiday week end, so today I decided to have a play with some of my new stamps from the Stampin Up Autumn & Winter catalogue. You can order from the 1st September.

I have used this weeks sketch from The Paper Players for inspiration and teamed it with the new 
Glamper Greetings stamp set.

I stamped the caravan onto whisper white card, and used Flirty Flamingo stampin write marker to colour it in, before fussy cutting. I created my card base in whisper white, added a piece of flirty flamingo card stock and two pieces of whisper white.  The caravan was adhered to the card front with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the same set, 
I am sending this card to a friend who as just got a job with the caravan club and like me will be living in her touring caravan.

Hello, and welcome to the new challenge over at MAWTT, 

No Design Papers

I created a card base in wild wasabi card stock added a panel of tangerine tango, and whisper white card.
fI then created a stencil by die cutting a rose using the Rose Garden thinlits from stampin up.
I used tangerine tango, and daffodil delight ink sponged over the rose part of my stencil, and then the leaves were sponged in wild wasabi. 
I added three clear drops and stamped Happy Birthday in tangerine tango

Happy Little Stampers - May challenge

Welcome to the May challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge, this month the theme is gift.
I decided to use my Penny Black stamp for this challenge, these little hedgehogs with their little presents are so sweet.
I have coloured the image with pro markers, and then fussy cut out. I added some glossy accents to the snow on top of the umbrella.
To create the little scene I used a falling snow embossing folder, a snow drift die and my new scalloped frame dies.
The background paper is from a LOTV pad.

Male Birthday card

Hello again, I am back with a card to share that I have made for a male birthday that I have coming up.  I have followed the current sketch over at The Paper players

I created a card base in very vanilla card stock and added some snippets of DSP from the Going Places 6 x 6 pad, and a snippet of crumb cake card stock.  I die cut a stitched circle and added my sentiment from the Rose Wonder stamp set, before mounting with foam pads.
I decided that the finished card needed a little something and as I 
did not bring any twine I had to hunt around and managed to find some black darning wool! which I then added around my card before adding a little cream button that I also found in the drawer.
As I have used some snippets on my card I am also linking up to

Birthday Greetings


I have finally managed to make a card!

We have settled into our new job in Surrey, it is hard work at times, but we have learnt loads, and I can now use the sit on mower, drive a small tractor and trailer to collect bins, and on Sunday I spent the afternoon strimming the grass around the play ground. The first couple of weeks I was so tired at the end of the day I was ready for bed after having tea!  The last thing on my mind was crafting, it was just to much effort to get everything out, and I could only bring limited supplies, due to space in the caravan.  
When I saw the current challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches, I was inspired to have a go and make this CAS card.

I made a card base in soft suede, with a panel of very vanilla , I stamped  two images from the Wetlands set from Stampin Up in soft suede ink, I then sponged some pink and blue ink over the images, added the sentiment and card finished. Very CAS!!

Spring Flowers - MAWTT

Hello, and welcome to a new challenge over at MAWTT

It is my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen the theme 
Spring Flowers

For my card I have used a stamp from Clearly Besotted, coloured with promarkers and then I used the matching die to cut out, I added some Design paper and a strip of Old Olive Card.  I adhered the daffodils to the card with roam tape and added some old olive twine.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
