Sprinkles of Life – simply stamped

sprinkles close up

We had our monthly card class today and used the new Sprinkles of Life set to create this simply stamped card.

The Photopolymer style lets you line everything up just right.

The card base is a small square of Calypso Coral, matted with Old Olive. Using Soft Suede ink, the tree trunk from Sprinkles of Life was stamped onto a square mat of Whisper White. Old Olive ink was used to add the leaves for the tree and also the grass and stems below. Calypso Coral ink was used to stamp the flowerhead onto the stems and also for the sentiment. Blender Pens were then used to colour in all the elements, dragging colour from the stamped images or lifting a little colour from the lid of the ink pad for a darker shade.

On the Whisper White insert, another trio of stems and flowers were stamped with Old Olive and Calypso Coral respectively. Again these were shaded with Blender Pens.

Thanks for stopping by.

Out and about – Telford to Ecclesfield in one weekend!

This morning I’m heading down to Telford with a bunch of Paper Dolls team mates for the Stampin’ Up! Regional Event. Woohoo!

We’re a little excited, lol. We’ve already got our hands on the new 2015-16 catalogue and also a few pre-order goodies but we’re looking forward to lots more inspiration and ideas today, both from those clever peeps at SU! and also our fellow demonstrators – looking forward to swaps! (I’ll share those with you later in the week). And fingers crossed that we might get a freebie or two as well!

Then hot on the heels of that event, tomorrow (17 May) I’ll be sharing a stand with Stampin’ Up! friends at the Ross Papercraft Show 10am – 3pm at Ecclesfield School. We’d love to see you there.

Thanks for visiting us at Westfield

I’m unwinding now after a day on my feet at the Westfield Papercraft Show. So it’s just a quick post to thank those of you who were able to make it to the Show and visited us today 🙂

We had a great day. Caught up with a lot of familiar faces and met a number of new ones too.

It was also a great opportunity for us to get together as a team, we managed to grab a team photo (well I need pix for my Project Life albums don’t I, lol).

We’ll be back at Westfield, Sheffield for the next Papercraft Show on Sunday 25 January so please pop it in your diary.

Autumn/Winter supplement

holidaysupplement

Need more holiday ideas? We have an Autumn/Winter supplement out now with extra goodies for you!! 🙂

We saw the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit while we were in Brussels and they are so cute! I wouldn’t call them boxes myself – to me a box has a base and lid – these are fastened closed as decorations, or you can score the top to create a hinge. Great decorations for the mantelpiece and tree though 🙂 – the kit makes 26!
