Ombre Stars with Stampin’ Up! #PLxSU

As well as a having a thing about butterfly stamps and punches, I love rubber stamps which feature stars and I can not wait for the new catalogue to get my hands on the lovely new Stampin’ Up! stars stamps and framelits.

In the meantime, I’ve had fun playing with one of the new Project Life Stamp sets called Point & Click, which is available now. It’s one of the new photopolymer stamp sets and there is one, which is a little cluster of stars. Stamping this ombre style in Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana was a doodle.

I finished the card off with the sentiment from Four You (available wood or clear), stamped in Island Indigo and framed using one of the Point & Click stamps. I trimmed a length of Island Indigo 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon to go underneath the sentiment.
I hope you like my card and it shows that Stampin’ Up! Project Life (#PLxSU) products can also be used for other things.
Don’t forget there are new weekly deals available in my online shop.

The Accidental Crafter – using Stampin’ Up! ® products

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous (possibly crafty) weekend! I managed to catch up with a good friend of mine, that I haven’t seen for ages. Her daughter and my sons get on like a house on fire so it was a fun time all round. To top it off she’s a fabulous cook so we were treated to a lovely home made curry – yummy!

Now normally I don’t make Easter cards, but there’s always a first time! I saw this card on Pinterest By Heather Summers, what caught my eye was the stitching on it – you know I love my sewing machine!! So I decided to case it. My first attempt went a bit awry and I ended up having to redo the stitching up the left hand side, but as I love the Fresh Prints DSP I had used, I didn’t want to waste it. Oh what to do? Simple really – I decided to hide my mistake with a row of flowers – accidental crafting! It’s not the card I intended but I actually really like it – it’s what we crafters call a happy accident!! What do you think?

I also decided to make another card using the Fresh Prints DSP and the same layout. As I was deciding what to do with this second one I realised I was also actually case-ing another card by Cindy Schuster, which I had seen on Pinterest too.
