Global Design Project - GDP245

I wasn't too sure about this Colour Combination when I first decided to give the #GDP245 challenge a go, but I have to say I actually really like it!  

I love the new 2020-2022 In Colors from Stampin' Up! and apart from the fact this combo is missing my absolute favourite (Misty Moonlight) im quite taken with it.  

Its nice to do something a little different and push the boundaries of my 'normal' colour choices.

If you would like to take part in the challenge, why not head over to Global Design Project web page and give it a go!

My Own Superhero's Birthday

Today is such a special day for our family, as my Hubby Darren celebrates his 44th Birthday.  When designing his birthday card, I thought it would be very apt to use the Everyday Hero Stamp Set, as of course he is MY Everyday Hero ❤!!  

This stamp set is available to order from the current Spring/Summer catalogue.
I used the new Watercolour Pencils to colour in the Superhero, and also the  word WOW to match.  I'm not the best at colouring as I always manage to go outside the lines, but these new pencils were so easy to use and blended so well when using the Stampin' Up! Blender Pen.
I absolutely love the little row of buildings at the bottom of the card, so had to stamp them on the inside as well:-

This was a really fun card to make, so I'm hoping he will like it!

Here's the list of supplies that I used:-

Until next time.....

Pinkies Blog Hop - Annual Catalogue

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

If you have arrived from Alex's blog at Hedgehog Hollow, then welcome!  For my project I have used one of my absolute favourite product suites from the new catalogue - Floral Boutique Suite.  I combined this with sentiments from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set as I made it with a birthday in mind.

I also used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to give my project a little sparkle and then finished it off with some Rhinestones.

The Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies were so easy to use and took no time at all to create this stunning card.  It really was a quick card to make, but gave stunning results.

I hope you enjoyed my little project and thank you for stopping by!  Its now time to carry on hopping to the lovely Michelle's blog to see what she has to share.

Until next time.....

A Very Happy 13th Birthday

Darren's God Daughter Evie turns 13 today, I cant quite believe that 13 years have gone by so fast - it's also the year that Darren and I met (again), so her birthday always reminds me of how long we've been together.

Anyway, I had a bit of a tight timeline on this card, as Darren's work colleague Steve was taking it back to the UK for us, so this is what I came up with:-

Its a fairly simple layout that uses the lovely new Birthday Bouquet designer series 12x12 paper and my absolutely favourite, Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framlits Dies.  

Stampin Up have also put together some Cardstock Packs that coordinate brilliantly with the DSP.  The pack I used was the Birthday Bouquet Pack which includes Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Whisper White.

All of the items used can be found in the New Spring/Summer Catalogue.  The catalogue can be viewed HERE if you want to take a peak?

Until next time....
