Raindrops Turned Balloons

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.  Here is today's DT project ...


You've probably already guessed ... I'm rather liking stencils at the moment. For today's card I turned the Abstract April Showers stencil into floating balloons by turning it upside down and using the bow from Balloons And Banners.

Birthday Bash

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.  Here is today's DT project ...


The Confetti #1 stencil was placed diagonally across my square base card, and I first sponged one side and then the other framing my stamped sentiment. I then finished off with the fuzzy cut cake, a touch of Stickles and some sequins.

Now the next thing I only really discovered when I looked at the close-up photo. My stencil had slightly moved and it gave a really great 3D effect on a couple of the shapes next to the cake. Hmm, there is an idea I need to investigate further with a couple of different colours ...

Woodland Birthday

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.  Here is today's DT project ...


For today's card I have taken a little bit of inspiration from the 500th Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, which I'm going to enter ...


As you can see, it's the rainbow colours and birthday theme I chose. For the background I used the new  slimline stencil. I decided to leave the fox and deer uncoloured and finished off with a simply stamped sentiment.

Cupcake Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends!

The girls from the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge are celebrating their 500th challenge and STAMPlorations is one of their sponsors donating a $20 gift code for one lucky person to win.

Here is my celebration piece using STAMPlorations products ...


Taking inspiration from the challenge photo, I made a skinny card using the Confetti #1 slimline stencil blended with rainbow colours as my background.
Being late making my card, I wanted to keep things simple and decided not to colour the cupcakes and sentiment.


I must come clean, I had promised Shery (STAMPlorations owner) to make a card for the day her company was due to be showcased ... and then I forgot and went on a week's caravanning break eventually realising what had happened. After coming home I quickly made a card and emailed it to with some huge lot of luck still be included in the post. If it wasn't possible anymore, I'll link it up with their challenge.

Note to self: check blog after getting up! Yay, the Sweeties were able to add it. Thanks so much!

Here is a closer look ...

Happy Thoughts

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Tuesday and this means it's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations.  Here is today's DT project ...


This is another take on the cards I made for last week's Spotlight Project using the Bloom Succulently Stencil. I added the script and splatters from Mixed Media Elements for a different look, all in Daffodil Delight SU ink.

I finished off with sequins and  a sentiment from the Bloom Happy set in Miel Izink ink.
