Celebrate 2013 for "Just us Girls"

Hi there, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends but now it's time to pack away the Christmas stamps and move on. I came across the "Just us Girls" challenge blog whilst checking out my followers favourite blogs. I thought I would play along with the inspiration photo this week.
I kind of went with the colours and the whole fun at the top, writing at the bottom idea. A few old Stampin' Up! sale-a-bration stamp sets where perfect for what I had in mind so out came Sprinkled Expressions and Outlined Occasions. The stars are stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo with little black stars to fill it up. I fussy cut round the top of the stars to give some dimension and pop one star because I could really!LOL

The word celebration was stamped in black and then coloured in the two colours with my blender pen. Overall a quick and fun card. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

An all time favourite for Feeling Sketchy

The presents are wrap, the decorations are hung, all my cards are sent so now it is time to relax and make a few cards that have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas. LOL!
Normally I love this time of year but right now I am just looking forward to the two weeks off work. It has been an exhausting couple of months so all I want to do is chill out and do as I please instead of continuously running to a schedule. With my daughter going away with friends after Christmas and hubby working I should manage to do just that.

My card
  Today's card is my entry into this weeks Feeling Sketchy challenge. I really love the simplicity of these girls sketches, it leave everything open for interpretation and this weeks sketch from Jess T is no different.

 I have pulled out an old favourite for this one. Bordering on Romance is my absolute favourite stamp set ever. I love it and use quite often.

I really like the way Michelle from the DT has layer the center panel over the full back piece (well that's how it looks) on her inspiration card so decided to go that way too. Sahara Sands and Perfect Plum make a lovely colour combo I've also added a touch of Lucky Limeade to the leaves all coloured with my trusty blender pen of course!

This is the first all Stampin' Up! card I have made in a while. Here is the list of supplies.
 Stamp Sets: Bordering on Romance, Wacky Words
Card Stock: Sahara Sands, Perfect Plum
Ink: Sahara Sands, Perfect Plum, Lucky Limeade, Black Staz On
Ribbon: Perfect Plum Taffeta ribbon
Tools: Blender Pen,

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I like to feel the love! LOL

Christmas Pixie made like Pops

The silly season has kept me busy but today I finally got to spend a few hours crafting and surprise, surprise my mojo decided to join me! LOL

This card is for the challenge over at Tiddly inks to "make it like Pops" I have kind of gone with image because like Pops, I too used a pixie image, this one being Christmas Pixie but also layout. I love making easel cards and it has been a while since I have done one.
Again the papers are from SU as is the sentiment, I have coloured the Pixie in with my Pro Markers and added some glitter to her wings and bells, unfortunately it doesn't show up on the photos. The holly I have had in my stash for years and couldn't even tell you where it is from much less by who.

I hope you like what I have done, I think this will be the very last Christmas card I make for the year.

Feeling Sketchy Week 37

Hi there, I don't know about you but one week just blends into another at the moment. Today I actually managed to spend a bit of time in my craft room and for once my mojo came with me LOL!

Jess D has come up with another great sketch for us to play with this week at Feeling Sketchy

I have used all Stampin Up! products on this card including a sneak peek at an up coming promo stamp and punch set but you will have to wait to hear about that. I took the colours from the butterfly paper and went with that. I hope you like my entry this week.

I really enjoyed making this card, I am so over Christmas cards!

Feeling Sketchy Wk 35 Sketch

Hi there!
It has certainly been silly season around here for the last few weeks but this weekend I was determined to get a card made to enter into a challenge. I decided to go with the great Sketch over at Feeling Sketchy this week. It's Mum's birthday on Monday so I have made a birthday card using the sketch and when it comes to my Mum I can never go past butterflies...she loves them!

The papers are from a paper stack by  Prima called Rondelle, I have fussy cut a few extra bits to add dimension. The butterflies are from Stampin' Ups Papillon potpourri which I stamped in black staz on and coloured with my trusty blender pen. Stickers and glitter ribbon are from my stash.

I hope Mum likes her birthday card!
