Funky Friday # 34

Woo Hoo! I am finally up to date with Abi's Funky Friday Challenges sorry it took so long Abi.

In this challenge we had to use Regal Rose, Rose Red, So Saffron, Very Vanilla and Basic Black.

I used Cardstock in Vary Vanilla, Regal Rose and Rose Red.

The main image is from the Blooming With Beauty Stamp Set and coloured with So Saffron, Rose Red and Regal Rose Markers. The sentiment is taken from the Sincere Saluations. I used my Divine Swirl embossing folder and some Very Vanilla 5/8 Grosgrain ribbon to finish this card.

Thanks for looking.

Funky Friday # 33

This is my very late card for Abi's Funky Friday Challenge. We had to use Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.

I made this using one the many exciting new stamp sets available to purchase from October 1.

I used Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose Inks, Cardstock in Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White and 5/8 Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon.

I really like this set and having lots of fun creating projects for an upcoming workshop with it.

Thanks for looking.

Funky Friday # 32


This is the card I made for Abi's Funky Friday Challenge. We had to use Tempting Turquoise, Taken With Teal, Whisper White and Basic Black.

The main images are from the Happiest of Holidays Stamp Set and are stamped and embossed in silver onto Taken with Teal and Tempting Turquoise Cardstock.

These are mounted using dimensionals onto a Basic Black card. The sentiment from the Best Is Yet To Be hostess set is stamped using Teal ink onto a Whisper White punched oval. This is mounted onto a Teal scallop oval and the finished shape is attached onto the card on top of Tempting Turquoise 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbin.

I really liked how this turned out and will be sorry to see this set go.

Thanks for looking.

Soft Summer Love Notes



This is set of notecards and matching box I made using the soon to be gone (but hopefully not for good!) Soft Summer Stamp set. If you would like to order this set please get in touch before sales from the current mini catalogue close on 30th September.
In addition to some Whisper White cardstock I also used Pink Passion, Green Galore, Cameo Coral and Orchid Opulence Card and Inks.
The images are matted and layered using the scallop and 1 3/8 circle punches onto Whisper White and Very Vanilla Love Notes.
I thought this would make a nice hostess gift. Thanks for looking.

Silent Night Card & Holly Bagalope



These are the make and takes I used for my first workshop. The Bagalope was made using the Woodcut Holly Jumbo Roller and Real Red, Glorious Green and Very Vanilla CS.

This is a lovely little gift bag we made at Abi's a few weeks ago using the soon to be retired Fall Flair Hostess Set.

We used Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive and Really Rust CS and Inks. Also used Chocolate Chip Ribbon and More Mustard Brads.

I made the card in the previous post to go with this and used them as a hostess gift for my first workshop.

Thanks for looking.

Autumn Leaves Thank You

This is card I made a few weeks ago after a lovely afternoon crafting with the rest of Abi's downline.

I used the Little Bit of Happiness Hostess Set for the main image and part of a retired set for the background.

I'm a big fan of the monochromatic look but I have also experimented with adding colour by using the emboss resist technique as shown above using Pixie Pink Ink.
