Something Completely Different....

Hi all... I hope this finds you well and that you have been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having...well up to today cardmaking mojo has gone on walkabout again...but I have been enjoying doing some sewing and made this sweet little folk art doll....'Posy'

I made her right from scratch...painted her quirky face and those sweet 'laced up' boots...she is totally OOAK.....I used to make these years ago...(12yrs ago!!!) and I thought I had lost the pattern but I was rumaging through some boxes in the garage this week and and found pleased as I loved making them...I have a couple more in the pipeline and have just added 'Posy' to my Esty shop here

Thank you for stopping by and for all your lovely comments....
Have a great weekend

Some to Share...

Hi all....not surprising that I been playing with my new Stampin' Up! stash....I'm loving the simple clean lines...but I'm sure I could get a little shabby with them as well as they are so versatile...

I have used Stampin' Up! Pocket Silhouettes for this card...I distressed the edges and the DP, ribbon and pearls are from stash .

You cant beat stunning Red Black and White in my book and this SU stamp is just perfect for this look..from the 'Mixed Bunch' set which contains 3 large and 3 smaller stamps so something for everyone...! I punched the flower out using a SU punch that co ordinates with the shape of the flower...what a great idea!!!...I used a Magnolia Swirl die, scrap of DP, ribbon and pearls from stash.

I am a great fan of Gingham..its so clean and tidy but pretty at the same SU stamp is from the Faith in Nature

Pretty in Pink...I have used SU Butterfly Prints and their matching punch which makes cutting them out so more fiddly also used a EK success border punch with a Memory Box Honeysuckle die.  The DP is Papermania Lucy Cromwell...lovely pretty papers..and I added pearls as usual.

This is another SU stamp from the Mixed Bunch a smaller one for the middle of the flower. The larger flower was punched out with the SU punch as before...  The DP is SU as well and I used a Cheery Lynne leaf flourish die.  Ribbon and pearls from stash.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my creations so far...and should you want any further information about Stampin' Up! products..then do please contact me at my email address on the side bar.

I'm having another craft day watch out for some more cards to share.

Have a great day!

Hello Hello Hello....

....Hello...its been a while again...but I have been a little busy and the old mojo has struggled a bit...but I think it was because I have been waiting to join up as a Stampin Up! demo...I've been excitedly awaiting my first Stampin' Up! goodies which I had ordered but then decided to become a demo and my Demo Kit is due to arrive tomorrow!!!..I'll be waiting at the door for the delivery excited.  I hope to showcase my SU cards on a separate blog..details of which will follow.

In the meantime I had a play with the goodies I have so far and here is a card....

I have used Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags stamp set...cute little tags with lots of different greetings and to make it even eaiser I used the coordinating tag punch,  The DP's are Craftworks and I used their candi too.

I received my magnolia stamp set  last week so I hope to be back later in the week with a sweet tilda to share...

Lots of hugs
