Blended Bloom Cards

Evening Friends

Well I have been so busy of late, as usual, my poor blog has suffered!  So I wanted to come back tonight to share with you some of the cards I have made this week.  I have wanted to get the Stampin' Up "Blended Blooms" single flower stamp for quite a while now.  So when I went to my lovely friend Beck's recent SU Workshop I decided to order it at long last.  It arrived in record time and I just had to stamp it out and play with it!

These cards are the end result.  They are all simple but I am very happy with how they have turned out none the less and I loved colouring them in with my copic ciao markers too.  So thank you Stampin' Up for the relaxing craft time I got in this past week.





Thanks for stopping in and saying "HI".  Have a great day or night and as always happy crafting.

UYS Challenges #182 & #184

Hello Everyone

Shirl has been a bad, bad girl! It seems I have totally forgotten to post my last couple of creations for Use Your Stuff.  So without further adieu I thought I'd best get to it and share them all with you right here, right now!

Challenge #184 - Chevrons

For this challenge I was determined to get a start on my Christmas Cards for 2015! So that is exactly what I did and here is my simple card.  Number #1 for the year. I have since gone on to make another 12 simple tilda christmas cards! Yay go me!



Challenge #182 - Embossing

So here is my card I created for the embossing challenge.  I decided to use an embossing folder and my gelatos.  I wasn't terribly happy with the outcome once I photographed it but as the photo really goes it no justice at all.  The colours look so lack lustre.  But here it is :


Thanks for stopping by my blog and I will be back soon with another post or two or three.  Happy Crafting.

Hugs

UYS Challenge #180 - Anything Goes!

Good Afternoon Everyone

OMG I so can't believe that I forgot to post my layout for this wonderful challenge... I forgot to post it on the Use Your Stuff blog to start with and now here too.  I must I must I must simply remember next time.

Please make sure you hop on over to the UYS blog and check out all the other fantastic creations for the wonderful ladies.  I am always inspired after visiting this blog!

For my "Anything Goes" challenge I found myself looking once again at school photos.  In particular my DD's Year 7 Graduation photos.  I always struggle trying to match the horrid colours of their uniforms so this time I decided to ignore the yuckky green & gold and focus on totally different colours.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  A double layout to celebrate a very special day.


Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Hope you have a great day.
