WWYS #112

I found a new challenge blog (new to me) yesterday over at What Will You Stamp?  Theywwys_112_Carousel Birthday list a stamp set to use each challenge which I thought was a little different.  I am just scrapping this card in as the challenge closes in an hour.

This week they are asking that we create a project using the “Carousel Birthday” Stamp Set which is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

For my card I decided to do the “Chalkboard” Technique which I hadn’t done for sometime.  I always love the finished look of this technique.

Thank you for a great challenge & a change to play with this fantastic set once again.  I have created a couple more cards using this set so don’t forget to pop on back to check them out in the next couple of days.

Global Design Project…

… meets Custom Tee.

I sat myself down yesterday to clean up my craft desk but instead got into more of a mess as I decided to play along with the challenge over at “Global Design Project” where the theme was –

Let’s face it – we all love a little Sparkle or Bling on our projects.

Trying to get the most out of the items from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue & seeing as though the “Custom Tee” Bundle was already sitting on my desk, I decided to go with what was on the desk.

I’ve used the “Carousels & Cupcakes” DSP Stack along with Very Vanilla, So Saffron, 20170418_134209blog-insideBermuda Bay & Early Espresso Cardstock.  I wrapped the Ribbon around the DSP after I had cut the circle using the Layering Circles Framelits.

To highlight the T-Shirt, I added colour to the piece of Very Vanilla Card by using my Aqua Painter & So Saffron Ink.  It doesn’t show up much on the photo because of it being Very Vanilla, but it pops the Shirt.

As the theme was Sparkles & Bling, I decided to add bling around the neckline & randomly down the right hand side of the card.  I also added a small Rhinestone to each side of the sentiment.

The sentiment is from the same Bundle, but I masked off the candles either side, inked with Bermuda Bay Ink, removed the mask & stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla, punched with the Classic Label Punch before adhering to the Card Front.

Why not play along with the team this week.  There is still heaps of time.  Thank you for a great challenge.

Mini Cups…

… of Ferrero Rochers.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Safe & Happy Easter.

You may remember I created some of these way back in December for the local Christmas Fair.  Well, as it happens, they have an Easter Fair on the Good Friday each year, so I went along.

Thinking that they may be popular & a little different to what is on offer I created a heap of them & decided that I would only put a small display out at a time, but have more in hiding if needed.  They were a huge hit & couldn’t keep up the demand.

I originally found the idea on Pinterst sometime ago & for once in my life, had written the instructions on a piece of paper.  Mind you it took me a little bit to find them, but so glad I did.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.

To create my cups I’ve used lots of lovely DSP, including – By the Shore, Floral Boutique, Go Wild (retired), Cupcakes & Carousels (2017 Occasions), Affectionately Yours plus a heap of other DSP which is not shown.  For the “saucers” I used coordinating Cardstock which was punched using the 2″ Circle Punch or the Layering Circles Framelits.

To decorate the cups, lots of lovely Punches, Dies & Stamps were used – Blossom Punch, Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly Punches, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, etc plus “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set to name a few.

Be sure to pop back in a couple of days time to check out another lot I created.April
