Gift Box made and decorated using Blooms & Wishes from Stampin' Up!....

Well hello and happy Friday to you all.
I have been busy crocheting away on a new project.... Bunting! My amazing friend said in passing she'd always wanted some crocheted bunting from her little Summer House she retreats to for some time alone, so I decided to give it a go. I have never tried it before and I love how it all turned out. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you will have seen my progress :)

After I finished it I wanted to make something equally gorgeous to pop her present in, especially as it was her birthday this month, so here is what I made, come and have a look.....

I used one sheet of 12"x12" sheet in Pink Pirouette and one in Melon Mambo card stock. I then for the base I scored all four sides at 2" to make the bottom, and the lid I cut it down to 11"x11"  and scored it at 1 1/2" to make sure it was a tiny bit bigger to fit over the base. To make it easier to lift off I used the 3/4" circle punch and placed it half way in and punched, it looks nice and it's practical too!

I decorated it with some retired ribbon, and cut out one scalloped circle in Watermelon Wonder and a smaller one in Flirty Flamingo cardstock, and a plain circle in Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits. I stamped on the Whisper white circle using the "Blooms and Wishes" stamp set (on page 139 of the annual catalogue) I used the For You sentiment in Watermelon Wonder, and stamped flowers in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo, finished off with some Basic Jewels, looks great doesn't it.

And here is a closer look at the bunting.

This is it laid on my ironing board all tied together. I am waiting to grab a picture of it up and displayed in Carol's Summer House, so watch this space!

Anyway, thank you for stopping by today!
If you would like to purchase any Stampin' Up! product from me, you can either email me at or use my online shop by clicking on the pink "Shop now" button, top right of my blog.

I hope you like todays project and crochet update, feel free to leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!

Card made using Stampin' Up! set called "Gift of Love"...

Hello again lovely blog friends, how are you today, well I hope?

I'd like to share with you a few cards made last week when I visited a friends Coffee and Card class. I am usually at work but I had an unexpected day's holiday so I jumped at the chance to craft!
These are Whisper White Notecards, stamped with Basic Black ink and stamped using Old Olive for the leaves, the left card is Daffodil Delight (Yellow) and the right card is Wisteria Wonder (Lilac)

The colouring in of the flower was done with a stamp and then I used the same colour marker pen to give it some darker accents, finished off with a sentiment, also from that set.

And here is the Wisteria Wonder version... aren't they adorable?!!

This time, I did a chequered and spotty edging using a set called "Timeless Textures", I think it finishes it off beautifully, don't you?

I also stamped both envelopes which match the cards, and I'm sure someone would love to receive one of these cards.....

SO... the first two comments I receive on this Blog post (Not FaceBook comments, sorry) saying what they like about the cards will have one card sent to them by post...
so get commenting!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Card made using Stampin' Up! "Strength & Prayers" stamp set

Welcome back, and today I want to share with you the final card made at my July card class using the Stampin' Up! Notecards. Come and see....
We used the "Strength & Prayers" stamp for this card and stamped the sentiment first and then the dove image. The ink used is Rose Red, and I felt the card looked to stark, so I inked up just the tip of the wings in the ink pad and stamped around the edges, the ladies loved this one.
 The card was a simple version of the one above and I used the ribbon on the new in-colour called Sweet Sugarplum which is quickly becoming one of my favourites! I also added a tinge of Perfect Plum to the edges of the stamp before placing in on the notecard, it gave it a two-tone effect.
Here you can see the two versions side by side, both simple yet effective, I am sure anyone would be glad to receive one of these cards.
And here are the three cards at the end of my card class. I always ask which is their favourite and often they all agree on the same card, but this time they couldn't decide, they had learnt new techniques on each card so they loved them all.
We do have fun at card class, it's for all levels of crafters so anyone can join in and enjoy.

Card made using Stampin' Up! "Love you lots" stamp set

Hello again lovely blog friends! It's Friday... and I'm back to share with you the second of the "quick and simple" cards we made at my July card class.

The cards I usually make are very clean and simple with a few layers, but this card is made using the Whisper White notecards and envelopes which are slightly smaller that the C5 card blanks I usually use. You can see from the picture below what difference there is in size, it's not much but sometimes the images fit better on the notecard without having to fill any of the white bits in, especially if it's a one layer card.

We used the "Love you lots" Hostess stamp set, and you can only get your hands on this beauty by either placing a £150 order with me or inviting your friends round to yours for a Stampin' Up! party with me and if your sales are more than £150 you can get this set with your crafty rewards! Or become a demonstrator like me and join my team... so you see, there are many options for you to own this set!

We stamped the image using Momento black ink and then the sentiment, which is called "Layering Love". I chose this particular sentiment because it mentions something so small, and that went perfectly with the tiny little mouse, don't you think?

To colour the elephant and mouse we used the aqua painter and Smoky Slate, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. It doesn't have to be coloured in perfectly and it really doesn't take very long to do - honest!

You can find the sentiment stamp set "Layering Love on page 71 of the Annual catalogue and the Hostess set "Love you lots" on page 199.

Layering Love - Page 71

Love you Lots - Page 199 (Hostess set)

I hope you are enjoying seeing what we have been making at class, please do leave me a comment as I'd love to know your thoughts... (and also, the comments mean I know I'm not writing these posts just to myself!!)

I will share the third and final card on Sunday, so I hope you can come back again then.

Thanks for stopping by,

Card made using "Get Well Soup" stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Hello lovely blog friends. Today I am sharing with you one of the very quick and simple cards we made at my July card class.

Come and have a look....

I used the Stampin' Up! Notecards that come in Whisper White or Crumb Cake, and they work so well for the smaller stamp sets I think.

Here is a better picture of the card. I stamped the gorgeous image using Momento back ink and the coloured it in with my aqua painter and Crumb Cake ink. I also wanted to add a touch of colour so I stamped the heart part of the stamp onto some scrap paper using Real Red ink and cut it out with my scissors and raised it up on a dimentional. And that's all there is to it - great huh?

You can find this stamp set on page 54 of the current annual catalogue, it's £12 and only comes in wood.

I have had this stamp a little while now and I absolutely love it. I can see it will be used so much more now.... I'll be posting one of the other two quick and simple cards on Friday so do come back again!

Thanks for stopping by,
Luv Lynne
