Whoops! Here I am!

Hello there,

I hope you're well and have had a tea-riffic day!

Sooooo......this isn't Saturday morning....whoops! Usually I pop by on a Saturday to share my latest DT card for the fab Sweet Stampin challenge blog....but last week I got rather confused and didn't think it was my week!

Well, what was the challenge I hear you say? This week we want to see your projects featuring a non white card you can create anything (with some stamping) as long as there is no white cards harmed in the making of your project!

I opted to use kraft card as my backing and decided I wanted the kraft to feature as part of the card....

I found these lovely stamps as part of a set which came free with a craft magazine and I just love that sentiment and the cute little house.

I stamped the trees and house onto kraft card and cut them out before attaching to my base card. I then stamped the house again on white paper and cut out the snowy roof for my card. I added a little more white paper as the snow, along with some colour on both the house and trees.

For more inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog, where you're there you can find out about our sponsor this week....

So, I am going off to put a reminder in my calendar to make sure I don't miss the next challenge! 

Don't forget that we also have the fab Christmas at Sweet Stampin monthly challenge for anyone wanting to get ahead with their Christmas cards!

Thanks for popping by today,

Make a scene!

Hello there,

Welcome back to my little blog! I hope you are well and have had a lovely week.

Today at Sweet Stampin we have a fab new challenge for you - we want you to create a scene! It can be any scene as long as it features some stamping.

As many of you know I love nothing better than a spot of afternoon tea.....and that first sight of your afternoon tea spread always makes me smile. All the cups, teapot, cakes and sandwiches laid out makes me so for this challenge I decided to create an afternoon tea scene.

I've kept it fairly simple, just stamping my images onto a white card and then colouring with Promarkers. All these images come from one stamp set and I think they create a lovely spread! I have added a little depth to the card with the teacups, fixing them onto the card with 3D sticky pads.

For more "scene" inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards that have been created! The winner this week will get a fab Sweet Stampin Goodie Bag!

If you love afternoon tea, you might also like to take a peek at my other blog....

Let's decorate!

Hello there,

Happy hump day! I hope you're week is going well.

So, here I am on a Wednesday...that means one thing....a new challenge from Christmas at Sweet Stampin! This month we want to see your festive decor....your projects can feature any Christmas decorations that you fancy, but there must be some stamping included too.

As you know I love Christmas....its that bright and cheerful time in the middle of winter. A time when you can decorate your house with lights, baubles and tinsel! Therefore this challenge really appealed to me....and I knew I had the perfect stamp to use....

In the end I decided the string of baubles were so pretty on their own that I didn't want to add anything else to the card. I coloured them with my Promarkers and added a little sparkle with my Stickles - perfect!

For more festive decor inspiration pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog where you can see the fab DT cards that have been created. While you're there you can also find out about our fab sponsor this month....

We can't wait to see your festive creations!
