Just Add Ink Challenge #13 and Mojo Monday #135

Hi Everyone

This week I have combined the colours of the Just Add Ink challenge with the Mojo Monday sketch to create my card, and below is the result. All products are Stampin' Up! and as I unfortunately didn't have Barely Banana ink I have used So Saffron instead on the duck.

Just Add Ink Challenge #11

Here is my entry for this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge which is Just Add...Ink!!! You can make what you like using anything you like. So I have made another Medallion card using the sponging technique. This card is very similar to the one that I had my lovely group of ladies make at the Launch night last week. This time though I have made it using more Rich Razzleberry than Soft Suede and have also decorated it with more half pearls, also a favourite of mine at the moment. I just had to see what it would look like, and don't you just love this stamp set? I haven't put any sentiment on it either as I love making cards at the moment that I can just pick up and use for any occassion that may arise.

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break. See you next time.


More Autumn/Winter Catalogue samples

Here are some more of the samples that I made using products from the new fantastic Autumn mini catalogue. Don't you just love Rich Razzleberry and the papers from the Cottage Wall series. I love them, they are so pretty!!!

My Samples for the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue

Well its the 1st of April and the new fantastic Autumn/Winter mini catalogue has just come out. I am so excited about it and I had such a great time on Monday night at our Launch night showing 6 lovely ladies some of the wonderful new products the catalogue has to offer. It was great spending the night with a room full of ladies all doing what you love to do. Here are some of the samples I took along. I had the ladies make 3 items, the first being a candle stamped with the beautiful Cottage Garden set (which I am yet to take a nice photo of), a card using the sponging technique on the Medallion stamp and the third using the rock n' roll technique on the Vintage Vogue set. If you also would love to make some lovely items using any of the products available from the new mini catalogue let me know and I would be happy to order them for you, just email me at

I completed this sample for our Autumn Mini Catalogue launch earlier in the week, but have been so busy preparing for the launch that I have only just had a chance to put the picture on my blog. Anyway using the Just Add Ink sketch above I have created a cute little note pad holder using Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo and Soft Suede cardstock, Cottage Wall DSP, Melon Mambo ribbon and the Two Step Bird punch, all fabulous new products coming soon that I'm sure you are going to love.

Just Add Ink Challenge #7

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink was a colour challenge using Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion and So Saffron. So as I only had the Green Galore and So Saffron stamp pads, I decided to mainly use cardstock in those colours. I had made a cute little cupcake on the weekend and just had to make another. So here it is, a very bright cupcake with matching birthday card. The cupcake template came from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. Great to hold a little gift of chocolates etc. I have stamped the flowers from the One of a Kind Stampin' Up! stamp set in So Saffron and then used the Boho Blossoms punch to punch them out and to also make the other flowers from the cardstock. The birthday wishes stamped on the card comes from the Sincere Salutations Stampin' Up! stamp set and is stamped in Green Galore.

Card: Stampin' Up! Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, So Saffron
Ink: Stampin' Up! So Saffron and Green Galore
Stamp Pads: Stampin' Up! One of a Kind and Sincere Salutations
Other: Ribbon and Pearls

Too Cute!!!

I was busy yesterday making these cute little projects. I have seen a few people make these, so thought I would give it a try. The first is a sweet little box from a template from Lauren Meader. Isn't it cute? And it was so easy to make. The second is a delicious, fat free cupcake from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. This also was very easy to make, I can't wait to make more. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Precious and Whimsical Words

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Night of Navy, Old Olive and Whisper White

Designer Series Paper: Stampin' Up! Urban Garden

Inks: Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue and Old Olive

Just Add Ink Challenge #5

Here is my Just Add Ink entry for this week. As soon as I saw this week that they wanted us to Just Add Dimension, I knew straight away what I wanted to do. So here is my chocolate bouquet. I have stamped it, cut it out, stuck it on, and stood it up. Those who know me know that I haven't had to think too hard when making this. It is different though to what I normally make as I have never made one with stamped flowers. It was fun to do but I think it will be a one of a kind as it took double the amount of time that my normal arrangements do!

I have used Stampin' Up! One of a Kind, Priceless and the Sale-a-bration Vintage Labels stamp sets.

Circle Circus

I had a play with the Circle Circus stamp set over the past few days, and this is what I came up with. Once again only very basic quick 5 minute cards, but that's all the time I am allowed at the moment with my very active 2 year old trying to grab and throw things as I'm trying to create.

Wow, I have my own blog!!!

I am very excited as I now have my own blog. I wasn't initially going to do a blog but after spending hours reading so many other wonderful blogs I couldn't help myself but join in the fun.
So here it is, please be kind, I'm new to this. I hope you enjoy my stamping efforts, although very basic at the moment I hope my skills will grow and develop along the way.
