Stampin Up 'Swallowtail' Joy Fold Card

Hi Crafters, I'm back with another 'Swallowtail' card! I don't think I'll ever bore of this beautiful stamp, its definitely in my top 5 of Stampin Up stamps. I've made a Joy fold card or zig zag flip flop card as I like to call it. Bit of a mouthful though. Love this fold of card :-) I've also used the 'Gorgeous Grunge' stamp set on the background. Check out this beautiful lace! Its available from the seasonal catalogue in Sahara Sand colour, very pretty, think I will be stocking up on this in case it doesn't make it into the new catalogue. eeek not long to wait now. 


I have used Baked Brown Sugar, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and Coastal Cobana for my colour combination and these gorgeous little 'Very Vintage' buttons go perfect.

Stampin Up, Swallowtail Butterfly Stamp


Good morning Crafters, hope you all had a lovely Easter break, the weather here in N.Ireland has been gorgeous and I have made the most of every minute, you just never know when its going to change from sunny to snowy! But every day is a craft day for me, I always find time to fit a little card in :-) This is a card using my new favorite stamp, isn't it just beautiful! I love the detail on this stamp, you really don't need to add much else to your card when using it as it is so beautiful on its own. I have only partially stamped the image on my card, its a very big stamp and looks great when fully stamped or partially stamped. As you can see I've stamped the image out twice and cut the second image down to layer onto of the first. I can't wait to try it in colour! The stamp comes in both Wood (£15.95) and Clear (£12.95) This is definitely one of those stamps you will use over and over again. Love it!
To order yours just click the link to my online shop and you will get it delivered straight to your door. 

Enjoy the rest of your day, I'm heading to my daughters for a yummy BBQ, catch ya later x

Stampin Up ~ Baby Bumblebee


How adorable is this cute little 'Baby Bumblebee' stamp? I Love the new 2014 ~ 15 In color Collection which have been used in the 'Sweet Dreams' designer paper, I would usually stick with pink, lemon or blue for baby projects but I went with the designer paper combo and think I've been converted. I've also used the 'Honeycomb' embossing folder with my card, a perfect combination with this little fellow.  Below you can see I made a picture box frame, wouldn't this be a fab present for someone with a new baby? Not really a good photo due to the light kept catching the glass but you can get the idea! Its colors are much brighter in real life. I have used a lovely stamp set called 'Banner Banter' on this project which also has a coordinating 'Banner' punch :-) Love it when I don't have to do the cutting free hand!

I love making backgrounds for my cards with re inkers and watercolor paper and this color combination has to be one of my favorites. I've used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie then I have stamped over it using the 'Petite Petals' stamp set. such an easy card to make, especially good if you are wanting to make in bulk like I had to do. I've ordered myself some more re inkers to try out different color combinations, can't wait for them to arrive!
