Using this week's SketchSaturday.
I opened my new woodgrain embossing folder - i thought it needed something flora or fauna to complement it & finally settled on Papillon Potpourri. A couple of embossed vellum butterflies & glitter finished it off.
It's still snowing here!
I stamped the Perfect Postage stamp with Versamark, then used "Heat & Stick" powder. This does exactly what it says on the pot! Once heated it becomes v sticky & you can sprinkle glitter (or whatever takes your fancy) onto it.
The tiny punched hearts are from the Owl Builder punch.
Thanks for popping by!
I'm realising the decidedly "masculine" potential of this banner stamp from the Patterned Party set!
It's a snowy wonderland outside - beautiful! Enjoy your weekend.
I had fun with the Papillon Potpourri stamp set & co-ordinating punch using a v spring-like colour combo & papers whilst watching the heavy snowfall outside the window!
A quick & easy desk calendar using the Every Little Bit stamp set. There are loads of images in this set with plenty of ideas for all months and occasions.
If you would like to have a go, the dimensions are as follows:
Turn the strip over and score at 3.75"
Rotate the strip 180 degrees and score again at 3.75"
You should then be able to fold your scored card strip to make a W shape. The bulldog clip holds the 11 months in waiting inside with the current month showing.
Once I've worked out how to upload documents to Blogger, I'll give a link to the 2013 calendar template I made!
Hope you're having a good weekend
I used blue ink & then sprayed diluted shimmer onto the stamp before using it to get the iridescent effect.
Some snippets for Pixie.
I like using "patterned" stamps for backgrounds for punched shapes. Here I used the large stamp from the Affection Collection stamp set to punch out the butterfly.
It's the weekend! Yippee!
January is a time for lots of celebration (and cakes!) in our household - we have 3 birthdays!
First up is my husband so a suitably masculine colour way and CAS card for him.
Now to decide what flavour birthday cake to bake ... Current favourite is Coca Cola cake, or possibly Gingerbread. Mind you I recently saw a recipe for Caramel & Pecan cake that I fancied trying ...Decisions, decisions ...
This stamp is from a set that is so new it is not yet available for sale! Suffice to say that Stampin Up's annual SaleABration starts on 21 January and you can get your hands on the complete stamp set then.
The washi tape is also 'new' for me; granted the trend has been around for a while now but I only recently got around to buying some!
